    Summary

    I feel that (almost) every episode could have ended with or led up to a happy end - Here are my versions. Some shorter, some longer, some simple, some more complex - Please also read the notes at the start of chapter 1.

    All characters belong to brilliant Aaron Sorkin.
    One shots, each chapter is a separate story and stands on its own.

    The M-rating only applies to chapter 5.

    Summary

    It was odd to be coming home this early with the sun still flooding in behind him as he crosses the lobby, arms full of takeout bags. It was an odd artifact of the news cycle— the flurry of emails, phone calls, and texts that had started arriving in the middle of the night three days ago— and the impending weekend. It was quiet now, rush hour not quite begun, and it feels, oddly, as if the storm was still approaching, as if it hadn't just blown through them. Three days with almost no sleep, he should be exhausted, but he's not, and that's what worries him. The storm may be over but he hadn't spared a thought for the damage it may have caused.

    Summary

    Another flashback from 'Act of Violence'. At a conference in Atlanta, Will & Mac, pre-series. "Under Jordan's over-confident influence (rather, actually, just drunken instigation) MacKenzie is a whole new creature, one he's not sure he's entirely equipped to handle on the fly."

    Summary

    “I slapped him. Yes. No.” The woman sitting behind him on the phone sounds exasperated. There’s nothing he can do until the cop comes back with his coffee or doughnut or whatever it was he had wandered off to find, so he turns in his chair and watches her.

    Summary

    September 15, 2017 Judge Timothy Wilson found former St. Louis police office Jason Stockley not guilty of first degree murder of Anthony Lamar Smith. Expecting this to become a major news headline on a day that included 3 other major news stories, ACN assigned each newsroom a particular story to run point on. The News Night producers now have to find ways to work past their biases about the case to cover the Stockley verdict in a fair way.

    Summary

    He sighs but she can tell he isn’t angry anymore, resigned and a little frustrated perhaps, he had never known her to listen when he wanted her to. “If you’re going to do this-”

    “That's sweet, Will.” She flashes him a smile knowing he hadn’t intended to make the gallant overture she’s implying, even if he wasn’t going to let her do this on her own.

    “You'd better be standing in front of me when they come for us.”

    “I'm quite a good with a handgun; I'm an excellent shot. My hand to hand is a little-”

    “All right, but if this blows up,” he cuts her off with a look, “don't hang around.”

    “I'd prefer not to take my foot off the landmine in the first place.” She tells him seriously. “We'd both be better off that way.”

    Summary

    Ulcers have a high rate of recurrence so... Will lands back in the hospital? Post series. (Mostly because Passcrow keeps saying that Sorkin didn't make enough use of McAvoy's pre-existing condition.)

    Summary

    It had started with a shared cigarette, a little white lie, and a spectacular view.

    --

    An (angsty) exploration of what might've happened if Mac had cheated on Brian with Will instead of the other way around.

    “So why did you tell me?” “If I had it to do over, I wouldn’t…”
    A little fantasia in which Mac gets a do-over. In other words, be careful what you wish for.

    Summary

    She won't tell him that though, won't tell him she's not sure she should be here, won't tell him that she lied to CNN and they only found out because she had gone and gotten stabbed. Incomplete medical records may have stopped an outright ‘no’ but they couldn't stop a switchblade, couldn't stop a request sent stateside from her surgeon to her GP.

    Summary

    There’s a lack of clarity that tethers them together, unasked questions that remain unanswered, and the terror of what ghost may be haunting them, unknown. Nearly seven months after she was captured by the Taliban, Will and Jim try to survive in the liminal space that MacKenzie has left behind. Whether she’s a mercurial goddess, a saint, or a just a woman they loved, they still can’t figure her out.

    Summary

    “Is my music interrupting your beauty sleep?” He’s not usually like this, a little rough, goading and teasing. He wonders briefly what it is about her that makes it so impossible to apologize. She glares at him and he fights down a smile. “I couldn’t sleep.”
