    Summary

    In which Josh Lyman endures.

    The tremble in Josh’s shoulders slowly radiated down his arms, and Hoynes watched as he stuffed his hands into his pockets, trying to hide the shaking. Then came the wobble of the knees, the dangerous shudder that made him near lose his footing as he took a step back and seated himself in the chair behind him.

    “I do this… and… I can.. go?” Josh stammered, eyes closed. His face burned bright crimson, his lips a thin line of restrained terror.

    Summary

    All individual parts to this series will be posted here, comments are welcome.

    In which Sam Seaborn learns. The start of something new.

    Speeches were Sam Seaborn’s personal favourite. He could rise up and debate with the rest of them, his verse announced to the nation in tones and rhythms that made his heart flutter, but he always had a soft spot for creative ventures and he was growing more and more alarmed at how often it bled seamlessly into his office work, being everything in that moment and feeling like nothing all at once, over and over again. A pendulum, swinging towards perfection but never quite reaching it before it swung the other way and he found himself running up a temper he just didn’t have the ferocity to give form. Not Like Toby could.

    Summary

    In which Sam Seaborn takes the Captain down with the Ship.

    Sam stood, his chair skidding back a few inches, and marched over to him. Josh hadn’t dared to moved an inch. He chanced a sideways glance at Toby, who was staring at him with an odd expression, like he could see how ashamed he was in the deepest recesses of his being. He raised a hand gently, and Sam watched how he shuddered with almost-hesitation, watched how pale his skin had turned against the crisp black of his shirt. He reached his hand behind his right ear and up into his hair, and lifted a tuft. There, in dark red ink, almost but not quite invisible amongst the hairs, was a signature. One he knew very, very well. Tattooed into his scalp, forever there. Always.

    Summary

    When Josh comes to find Sam in New York, he resigns himself to the fact that he will never have Sam Seaborn as anything other than a friend. But that's okay. Really, it's fine. It's just a stupid attraction and Sam is stupidly attractive so it's nothing serious because it would be weird not to find him attractive... Right?

    When Sam decides to go to New Hampshire to work on Josiah Bartlet's campaign he tells himself that he isn't following Josh. No, that would be idiotic. And only the most delusional of people would still be pining over a man who a) was straight, b) had absolutely no interest in you, and c) was so bad at relationships, he almost made it an art form. Besides, Lisa is great. So there is no possible way that he is trailing after Josh like a lost puppy. Because, really, wouldn't that be pathetic?

    A story about the relationship between Josh and Sam from their first meeting to their developing romance as colleagues and friends.

    Summary

    He hears a knock on his doorframe. He opens his mouth, ready to say something that people would think is very typical Josh that’s actually just very typical tired and anxious Josh (which is Josh most of the time, but the people who matter know he’s not like that; C. J. and Leo and Joey and Donna and… Sam. Sam knows more than anyone.). He lifts his face from his hands, ready to tell anybody, nobody who it is, to leave him alone.

    Unfortunately, he looks up and sees his exception. Sam Seaborn is leaning in his doorway with the most sincere blue eyes Josh has ever seen. Josh’s face softens despite everything that’s happened in the past 12 hours.

    What if Mandy wasn't actually just the annoying character everyone hates but inexplicably gets dropped from the show never to be heard from again? What if Mandy was actually Not Terrible? This is my take on Mandyville, giving her the backstory that she maybe sort of deserved.

    Summary

    “Do you think Josh is still here?” CJ whispered as they toed off their snow covered boots. The apartment was dim and quiet, except for the faint hum of a television coming from the bedroom. “He never came back to work.”

    “I bet he just took an excuse to get a quiet night at home and sleep, the fucker.” Toby whispered back as they crept down the hall.

    They walked towards the noise of the television and CJ peered in the crack before gasping loudly.

    “What is it?” Toby shoved his way over and looked in and his eyebrows flew up on his forehead. “What the hell?”

    The two senior politicians expected to see Sam asleep in bed watching late night television. They expected him to be alone.

    But he wasn’t alone.
