    Summary

    "josh’s head says politics, but his heart says people. and maybe it’s about finding a balance, but he’s never been good at the in between. it’s all or nothing - get your head in the game and work for sixteen hours straight, and once you panic and go too far, you’re done for the next week.

    sam was the first time he thought maybe he could do both."

    > sam and josh meet in college. you can guess where this goes from here.

    Summary

    Josh (age 24) and Sam (age 20) meet in the summer of 1984, fall in love, and enter into a committed, non-closeted relationship. They still end up on Bartlet’s Senior Staff; Bartlet does not have MS. Sam is elected to the Senate in a special election in 2001, and becomes President after Bartlet’s second term. This is the saga of how they make their way together despite their anxieties, insecurities, and bouts of occasional outright idiocy.

    Summary

    An exploration of Sam's brain during Season 1 Episode 19.

    What if there was a reason the Don't Ask, Don't Tell meetings were on Sam's desk beyond he's a good lawyer?

    What if that reason is Josh and Josh's distinct lack of self-preservation?

    What if they were more than just best friends but because it's the 90s and they work at The White House they can't say anything?

    Sam would do anything to protect Josh and everything they have, so much so that he'd go up against the DOD and men who are just like his dad.

    A look at what they are to each other and how Sam protects Josh just like Josh fights for Sam

    Summary

    Sam Seaborn loves Josh Lyman. And Josh Lyman loves Sam Seaborn.

    Just not quite as much.

    josh's problem is that he runs away from everything that's good for him (those of us who have watched noel or really any episode of the show are aware of this). that in mind they are very much perfect for each other except that josh refuses to believe he deserves love and that breaks Sam's heart more than the "no". inspired (obviously) by taylor swift, because who else would it be, honestly.
