    Summary

    Sam’s life changed forever when Ainsley Hayes, his future wife and the future first female POTUS, kicked his a** on National TV.
    Capital Beat with Mark Gottfried. Tonight from the right, Republican political analyst Ainsley Hayes, and from the left, White House Senior Advisor Sam Seaborn. With Chris Eisen at the Pentagon, and Marjorie Clarke in New York." The news broadcaster announced as the panelists' headshots flashed on the screen

    The printer in the Bullpen chirped over the TV. A blonde woman furrowed her brow at the printer from her desk. ‘Huh that’s weird.’

    "DONNA!" A man's voice bellowed from an office.

    "Don't shout." She replied.

    "DONNA!" The man shouted.

    "Don't shout!"

    "DONNA!" The man shouted.

    Donna marched to his office door. "How many times have I told you not to shout?" She stared down a smug, arrogant auburn haired man.

    "Ummmm….."

    "Anyway Sam's about to go on Capital Beat, if you wanna come watch.” Donna said.

    "I was just gonna ask you about that." Josh asked.

    'Josh, Josh, Josh, Josh. What would you do without me?' "Way ahead of you, my friend." The auburn haired man followed her out to the Bullpen.

    Summary

    Disillusioned former Kennedy campaign aide Joshua Lyman comes to his best friend Sam Seaborn and promises to get him elected to Congress-the first "real thing" he's seen since JFK. Despite his friend CJ’s pleas for him to get a girl, the most successful he seems to be is setting the single Sam up with feminist Ainsley Hayes over a year earlier until divorced KTLA reporter Donna Moss shows up at the office. Suddenly Josh finds himself falling for the blonde reporter as the city around him falls apart, while he’s still trying to get a good man elected to Congress.

    Summary

    Sam. Ainsley. Unlikely. (Or, part one in a series the author has challenged herself to wherein she plays songs at random via shuffle, picks something from the lyrics, and writes a one-shot drabble/short fic inspired by that lyrical phrase or a single word.)

    Summary

    The days were getting shorter, the nights were getting colder, and he had begun to partake in his seasonal sweater collection. Which could only mean one thing in his still-quite-young life: the season of Mock Trial was officially upon Sam Seaborn.

    Sam’s tunnel vision hadn’t quite cleared enough to pay attention to who Mr. McGarry was talking to, but he sort of had to pay attention when the bearer of the distinctly Southern drawl walked right by, snapping him out of whatever rage coma his mind had placed him in.

    And Sam definitely knew he was back and wide awake when a long blonde ponytail with a purposeful stride sat down right in front of him in what appeared to be her new seat.

    Josh’s seat, actually. Not that she seemed to realize that; it made sense— she was probably a… transfer.

    Oh fuck no. Fuck no. Fuck no. Fuck—

    “Hi, I’m Ainsley,” Ponytail turned around, blue eyes piercing the very depths of his fucking soul. “What’s your name?”

    Welcome to Landingham Academy’s 20th Annual Mock Trial Season!

    Summary

    “Are you worried?” Ainsley turned to Sam, looking and feeling pretty worried herself.

    Sam pursed his lips and fidgeted with his reading glasses. “About how they’ll get along?”

    Ainsley nodded.

    “Oh, absolutely.”

    Ainsley hummed nervously. “It can’t be that bad… can it?”

    *a few days later*

    “Who the hell thought this was a good idea?”

    Engagement party with the Hayes and Seaborn families! It goes about as well as you’d expect.

    Summary

    “Mr. President, are you even listening to me?” Josh finally had to ask.

    “Man, I’m sorry, but it’s a little hard to focus on important issues when I’m looking at a guy with an infant strapped to his chest.” Santos gestured vaguely to the small bundle that you’d be forgiven for mistaking for a pile of blankets but was actually Joey’s sleeping swaddled form.

    “Yeah,” Josh drawled, looking down at his daughter with a love in his eyes Matt knew well, though his seasoned Chief of Staff might work hard to hide it. “She sleeps like a champ and has her mother’s eyes. In other words, she’s the most fearsome political weapon this world may ever know.”

    Or 5 times Josh wears a baby born and 1 time he doesn’t

    Summary

    Yale Law graduates Josh Lyman and Donna Moss couldn’t be more different. Josh is an arrogant and abrasive political scientist, while Donna is a quiet, but quirky TA. They met in the summer of 1986, and over 12 years and a series of chance meetings, they toe the line between acquaintances, friends, and lovers. All the while, they ask themselves the existential question: “Can two friends sleep together and still love each other in the morning?”
