Rating: PG
Notes: I actually can't believe I finished this one.  I was ready to scrap it more times than I could count. In the end, the solution was to change the format from the Frankenstein experiment in POV I was attempting to something more far more familiar.  Like this fic, I have written five 100 word drabbles that technically can be read separately, but make more sense when read together.  I'm posting it today in honor of [livejournal.com profile] gatsbyfan's birthday!  Feliz cumpleaños, Gatz!!!  (The Spanish will make sense after you read the fic.)

For this meme, [livejournal.com profile] zinke asked for commentary for Back Against The Wall, the first part of my first and (so far) only series Things Not Meant To Be. She couldn't have chosen a better fic. This was a pretty significant piece for me and so I have a lot to say about it, to the point I nearly did commentary for the whole fic. But if I did that, then I would want to do it for the whole series, and I'm only going to do that if there's a lot of interest. So, rather bite off more than I can chew, I stuck to commenting on the snippet itself and not go into the more spoilery things about the rest of the fic and the rest of the series.

Notes: This is a sequel of sorts to Expecting. This was a birthday fic is for [livejournal.com profile] watson1, who has been more than patient. Especially since a few of her birthdays have gone by since I started this! A big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] gatsbyfan for proof-reading.

Notes: Trying to get this in under the wire. I literally wrote this in twenty minutes, which means that the title also refers to my writing. Now if people would only write The Cold anniversary fic, I wouldn't have to resort to such desperate measures! Happy birthday to both [livejournal.com profile] flippet, [livejournal.com profile] paladin98 and to all Keytus Kids collectively. I wish I could have gotten you all a better gift!

Notes: Well, it looks like I might have gotten my Christmas wish for my muse to come back. I started this fic ages ago. I was inspired by a couple of brilliant, angsty AUs where Josh and Donna both get burnt out on politics and disappear (seperately) only to meet up years later. Mine, however, somehow got mixed up with holiday travel. So, in honor of the season, I offer it as a Christmas present. A great big thank you to [livejournal.com profile] christinekh , [livejournal.com profile] edgeriffic and [livejournal.com profile] gatsbyfan for the speedy beta! Peppermint hot chocolate's on me, ladies!

Airports are the worst place to be during the holidays... )

Challenge 186 for [livejournal.com profile] tww100 was "Rewind" which meant you could go back and write using any prompts. I got the idea for these drabbles when the prompts were first posted, but I just didn't have time to work on them. (Actually I still don't have the time, but oh well.)

Rating: PG
Notes: This is an AU that diverges from the canon in Season 4 right before Commencement, though I will occasionally make a reference to minor plotlines.  Things that did NOT happen: Zoey’s kidnapping, Amy Redux, Carrick, Gaza, Leo’s heart attack.  Oh, and, after Sam lost his election, he came back as Senior Legal Council… because I wanted him to.   I've literally been working on this fic off and on for over a year and I never could have finished if not for the help and encouragement of Caz, Gatz and Edgy.  Thank you so much, you guys!

Notes: I don’t think Amy and Mandy are the same person, so why would they have the some outlook?  This fic is set mid season 3.  Thank you to [personal profile] gatsbyfan and [personal profile] caz963 for the beta and a great big thank you to [personal profile] edgeriffic for helping me save this fic when I was ready to put it permanently on ice!

Notes: These drabbles can be separately or all together as one united fic. Each of these drabbles are exactly 100 words so that they would qualify for [info]tww100. The current challenge (#181) is “Water.” Wasn’t that convenient! For those of you who care about things like this, the last drabble features Nora and Aaron. Thank you to [info]edgeriffic, [info]gatsbyfan and [info]caz963for the beta and to [livejournal.com profile] teresadivicenzo for finally giving Aaron his name! :-) And, of course, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] flippet for such an inspiring idea! Ages ago, I wrote a silly little drabble about singing in the shower. Flip thought that Donna listening to Josh sing Yellow Submarine would make a good drabble and I promised to write it for her birthday. Flash forward many months later, and I’ve written her five. Which is only fair since I missed her birthday a while ago. Sorry, for the delay, Flip! Happy belated birthday!

Note:   Ronna's got something to say about this situation.  For story purposes, the election of the DNC Chair is held every 2 years in October.  I know that this isn’t true in real life, but if Sorkin can make 2002 a Presidential Election year, than I should be allowed a little leeway too!  Again a big that you to [info]caz963 for being my beta and to [info]seri_scribble for just being awesome and for telling me if I tipped my hand too much.  She had to wait MONTHS to find out who the Other Woman was! 

Please read Part One first.

Note: This is a much darker look at the future of the Santos Administration (and of Josh and Donna's relationship) that I normally take.  The series title is from the James Taylor song "Long Ago And Far Away."  If  you never heard it before, you really should.  I've been working on this series for almost a year and, after months and months of waiting, I'm finally going to post this!  A HUGE thank you to [info]caz963 for holding my hand throughout this whole process and to [info]seri_scribble for being my canary.  Six months is a LONG time to be kept in the dark!!!  Be thankful that you guys are only going to have to wait a week between installments!

Notes:  I didn't realize how late it had gotten until it was tomorrow already!  So, I figured I would post this now rather than later.  Happy Anniversary, all you Josh/Donna shippers out there... especially to all the [info]keytuskids!!!  Just a little drabble to mark the occasion.  ETA:  I probably should mention that this takes place right after the first kiss and  right before the second.  And, horrible person that I am, I forgot to thank [info]caz963 for her beta skills!  Because even on a piece this short, I still managed have 20 typos that I just didn't catch! :-P

Rating: PG 
Summary: AU set right before The Ticket.  The day before Donna's interview with Josh, she gets a very upseting phone call.
Note: As a lot of you might remember, I wrote What Happens In Hospitals about a year ago.  It seems to be my most popular fic… probably because it features drugged!Josh.  I still proud of it, but because it was one of my earliest fics, there were things about it that I just didn’t handle very well.  First, the whole open timeline thing was a dumb idea.  I always though of it as a Season 6/7 AU and really should have just written it as such.  Second, I didn’t deal with the more serious, melancholy side of the premise well at all.  Though I had tried to weave it through the entire fic, the somber side really didn’t come across until the very, very end and then it was more a discordant note than anything else.  But what can you do?  Just chalk it up to a learning experience and move on? 

Well, I recently realized that I could solve both problems with a prequel.  I realize that I’m messing with something that a lot of people like (not that I believe there’s a huge number of people reading my stuff to begin with, but still) and that can really be tricky.   I mean, look at the Star Wars prequels!!  But since I write mainly for my own enjoyment, I decided to be fearless and just go for it!  As always, a great big thank you to [info]caz963 for proofing for me again.  I can't tell you how thankful I am you're my beta (even if I don't always listen!)  So, to show my love, I used "Hannah" like you wanted! :-)
 

Because I just can't leave things well enough alone... )
