I offer recs! Not many, just a couple of my favourite West Wing fics. As an advanced warning, they are all Josh/Sam. Okay, one of them is probably more gen than anything else, it's pre-slash if you happen to ship it.

You and Me of the 10 000 Wars by Violet and Ellen M - PG13 - "You're asking the wrong person," he says. "Josh has never been in love with me." As soon as the words are out he sits up in his chair, so fast that it squeaks. He's shocked at the bitter edge of his own words.

♥ I think this may be a stock rec for this fandom. It is a lovely story about how Sam deals with Amy and Josh, with a massive heaping of Ainsley for good measure. I love Ainsley, especially in this.

Twelve Days before the World Changed by [livejournal.com profile] raihon - In the summer of 1988, Sam sublets a room in Josh's house and thus begins an interesting friendship.

♥ Amazing, plotty, gritty fic set in a world that is changing rapidly. As the author puts it, it is a love song to 1989.

Sentimental Fever by Seana Renay - PG - "You know how everyone thinks you're the smart one?" he asked. "We should get them to stop thinking that."

♥ Sweet! Absolutely adorable story about the boys saying 'I love you' for the first time and how Sam is an idiot.

And now for something completely different.

Double Ironed by [livejournal.com profile] simmyschtuff - House - R - He died last Christmas.

♥ In case the summary isn't enough of a warning, there is character death in this fic. Also, hints of House/Wilson in amongst the House/Chase goodness. It is more a lovely character study of how House deals with a puzzle he can't solve. It is light, and funny, and tragic.

Tripod, make better shirts! I soaked mine in salty water to colourfast the signatures and ended up with ink smudges all over it. I have gotten them almost all out, there is nothing a girl armed with Google, Enchanted, and a well stocked pantry can't do. Still, Tripod is fricking awesome and I plan on listening to nothing else while I clean tomorrow.

Grey's Anatomy! Cut in case of spoilers ) And really, I have know idea when or how I ended up shipping Derek/George.

Also, West Wing rec!

Wayfinding by Jackie Thomas - The West Wing - R - He still had moments, even now, when he could taste the pavement in his mouth, when the sound of shattering glass rang in his ears, when every kid in a baseball cap concealed a gun and every building a gunman.

♥ This is one of my favourite Josh/Sam fics. Actually, it is one of my favourite West Wing fics. The characters are dead on and genuine. The writing is beautifully lyrical, and it just kind of aches.

I went to a fantastic 21st last night, the sort of 21st where drunk people let tipsy people cut off their mullets and bags of ice do not melt, even after the sun comes up. It was freezing, but so much fun. I love those nights surrounded by friends, I love that feeling that I matter to people. I know I'm single, have always been single, maybe always will be single, but nights like last night remind that it's enough to have amazing friends. Admittedly, I'd like to the whole kissing thing and sex thing at some point, but I already have a whole lot of love in my life. I lose sight of that sometimes.

I've been trying to do my Australian literature assignment with limited success. If I can pass this I will be very proud of myself.

I also offer a West Wing rec. It's mostly gen, though I suppose squinting could offer Josh/Sam pre-slash.
The DoD by E.E. Beck - G - “It’s sort of a New Year’s resolution,” Sam said, squinting down into his coffee in embarrassment.

Picspam! )

Are there truly people out there who do not want to jump her bones? What sad, strange lives they must lead....
