Title: Time Goes By
Show: West Wing
Category: Post Series, Post-ep for The Cold
Rating: PG
Notes: It hasn't just been 10 years since The Cold. It was spoilers for The Cold that finally encouraged me to delurk from TWoP and start posting. I wouldn't be involved with fandom today, if Josh and Donna didn't "totally make out." :-) Even more importantly I wouldn't have met all the wonderful people. So this one is for the Keytus Kids! (ETA: This was originally called "Ten Years", but I changed the name for a variety of reasons, including to avoid duplication with an upcoming fic.)

Happy Anniversary Everyone!! )

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.)

 Okay, I'll admit that none of these are my best effort, but it feels so nice to actually post something, I'll take what I can.

And even if they're only drabbles, at least it's two that I can cross off of this ridiculous list of mine!

Done! Finally! The Life Offline combined with everything that's been going on over at [livejournal.com profile] keytus_tv has been eating up most of my time, but whenever I've had a moment I've been writing. This drabble challenge has done everything that I hoped it would. My muse has come back with a vengeance! So I decided that it's as a very good sign that the last two drabbles wound up being double length just because I had more to say! (Or at least that's what I'm telling myself!)

This has been a lot of fun! Thank you to everyone who gave me prompts and to everybody who has read and/or offered encouragement. Let's do this again sometime!

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: Remember Donna's line in The Short List? You know the one. "Because when it doesn't work out, you end up drunk in my apartment in the middle of the night and yell at my roommate's cats." Well, a while back I was going to write a drabble for [livejournal.com profile] tww100 when the promp was "Calvin and Hobbes" and my mind immediately went to that line, but I couldn't get the drabble down to 100 words, so I abandoned it and [livejournal.com profile] tww100 has seemed to have died (or, at least, gone into deep hibernation) since then. This weekend, I pulled it out again with the idea of turning it into a ficlet, but something wasn't quite right. Fortunately, [livejournal.com profile] amycurl came to my rescue and suggested that I change the POV. The result was twice as long and ten times better. Thank you so much, Amy!! I seriously couldn't have done it without you!!!

And if you don't get the Calvin and Hobbes reference, then you should be ashamed! )

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.)

Title: For The Best
Author: Quaggy
Category:  AU
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!

Category: Various
Rating: G
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!

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... )

Rating: G
Notes: Sometimes someone can inspire you without saying a word.  I was thinking about a proper birthday gift for [info]dawnitella when I remembered that she likes funny, banter fics.  Something I haven’t written in months!  I didn’t even have one in the works!   I bemoaned the fact to beta extrodinaire [info]caz963 who reminded me that I could write a banter fic about anything.  Shopping for shoes, for instance.  I was about to mock when something funny happened.  I got an idea!  Remember how Josh promised to buy Donna shoes when he told her she had to work on Saturday?  Remember how he found Joey Lucas at her hotel?  Well, that hotel looked a lot like the Ritz Carlton at Pentagon City… which happens to be right next to a mall that has a Nordstroms and Macy’s.  Great place to buy shoes, don’t you think?  The rest wrote itself!

Notes: I never thought I would collaborate on fic before.  It seemed too complicated.  But [personal profile] caz963 and I seem to share a braincell and we were both taken with the concept, though we were fond of different endings.  So, we shared writing duties for Part 1 and shamelessly stole the idea of “choose your own ending” from Yana…. but that comes into play later.  A big thank you to [profile] coloneljack for making sure that Caz and I weren’t speaking in our own little language and HUGE thank you to Caz for letting me share the writing duty on this.  I totally owe you one!
