    Summary

    “Last night.” She clarifies as he chews, watching as she paces uneasily down the length of his kitchen. “I thought we had a good time.”

    “We did. I did. It was perfect.” But it wasn’t the same.

    “What is it then?” She looks worried now, eyes pleading with him as she stops to press her palms into the counter directly in front of him.

    “I wanted to be the sappy jerk that got to watch you sleep and cook you breakfast. I wanted to have a conversation about something that doesn’t involve other people.” I wanted to be a little bit selfish, he doesn’t say.

    Summary

    “I'm an intern.” She doesn't know why she says it other than she doesn't want him thinking she's getting ahead of herself, putting herself on the same level as Mark Draper.

    “I know.” He doesn't seem bothered by the fact. If anything, it seems to soften his opinion of her. “I expect he'll be jealous you talked to me.”

     

    Will works for the DA, Mac is a summer intern at CNN.

    Summary

    “Too bad about those couriers, eh?” Neal began, fiddling absently with his e-cigarette.
    Indifferently, Will lit a real cigarette and took a deep pull. “They got a lucky break. Yesterday, they were just two stringers scrabbling for a story. Today, they’re the honored dead.”

    Summary

    “I didn't realize that was an option but I'm all for it, McHale.” Will/Mac, pre-series, pre-relationship. Just a flashback from one of my other stories that I decided to mess around with. By the time I'm done it'll probably just be a vehicle for flirtation, etc. Enjoy!

    Summary

    "Someone once said to me that being a war correspondent is an act of violence against the people you love the most because they end up having to stay behind worrying about you." Will's point of view while Mac is embedded. Borrowed Jordan from 'Studio 60' for later chapters, just because I think she and Mac would have made a great team.

    Summary

    I haven't quite decided where I'm going with this, I'm afraid - so the title might end up seeming a bit mis-leading.

    Where are we? We're at CNN, August 2007. Will and Mac are a couple, and they live in DC.

    I have always been a bit frustrated by all the weird holes and gaps and inconsistencies in these characters' back stories, so I'm trying to work around the clues that Sorkin left in the first and last episodes, primarily.

    Summary

    What happens between the time Will goes to jail and when he gets released 52 days later? A view on some random days and what could have happened. I don't own anything, all characters belong to Sorkin.

    The M-rating only refers to the last chapter, all other chapters are max. rated T and can also be read as one shots.

    Summary

    Response to lilacmermaid25's April Challenge (three things: downpour, painkillers, spice rack). Post-S2, pre-S3. Fluff, in progress. "Because the fact that he was achingly in love with every goddamn inch of her still didn't negate the fact that she didn't know where he kept the extra toothpaste. Or where the coffee filters were. Not anymore."
