An Angel’s Wings by Sue C Rated: FRAO - Adult starstarstarstar [ Reviews = 2 / Kudos Received = 12 ] Featured Stories
Summary: Spoilers: None
Pairing: Josh/Sam
Disclaimer: My two favourite boys plus other characters belong to Aaron Sorkin/Warner Bros; Rachel, Paul Donnelly, Anna and Mona Ferguson belong to me. It’s a Wonderful Life, its characters and quotations belong to Artisan
Summary: This is a Christmas fic which is outside my Carpe Diem universe. It’s a post-Bartlet administration story, however because I live in the UK and have yet to see Season 7, please excuse the fact that I have had to be very creative with the Santos campaign in terms of its progression and characters
Notes: I have conducted some medical research. Please excuse any inaccuracies
Archive: By all means, just let me know where
Feedback: Please, even if you hate it, as long as it’s constructive. I’m at susan.clements4@btopenworld.com
Thanks, as always, to Kathi for her comments whilst this fic was a work in progress, but above all for her kindness and support this year
Merry Christmas and happy holidays to everyone and all good wishes for 2006

Better Angels by Raedbard Rated: FRM - Mature [ Reviews = 0 / Kudos Received = 8 ] Featured Stories
Summary: Pairing: Sam/Toby, Toby/Jed, Sam/Jed/Toby. Yes, I'm afraid you did read those correctly.
Word Count: c. 6,700
Archive: If you still do (*shrugs*) then yes, please. :)
Disclaimer: I make no claim to be Aaron Sorkin or John Wells, I just like to borrow their characters and make them do morally reprehensible things to each other.
Summary: A perfect metaphor: The legend of Tobias Ziegler, Samuel Seaborn and Josiah Bartlet, with discourse on the subject of better angels and the lies you tell to them. A less than divine comedy.
Notes: I fully accept that the pairings are a little out there, but I hope some of you will give this a try anyway - it's worth it, promise. ;)

Consequences by Xanthe Rated: FRT15 - over 15 starstarstarstarstar [ Reviews = 0 / Kudos Received = 5 ] Featured Stories
Summary: Rating: PG13 for m/m kisses.
Warning: Caning alert of the punitive rather than sexy kind.
Feedback: The friendly variety is always welcome!
Summary: Kinda "The West Wing" meets "Another Country" The world SO needs this kind of stuff. So if you *like* that kind of premise then this is undoubtedly the fic for you...if not, you can just make disapproving faces.
Spoilers: Two Cathedrals, H.Con 172
Dedication: For Raven: I hope you're doing okay now!!
Note: The corporal punishment in this is a bit different to what I normally write but hopefully the emotional reactions to it are the payoff The CP in this fic is of the school variety and involves the discipline of 17 year old boys so don't read on if that isn't your kind of thing.
Background: In the episode "Two Cathedrals" we see a 17 year old Jed trying to have a conversation with his father, which is cut short when his father lashes out and hits him for no real reason. Jed is visibly shaken by this but it clearly isn't an isolated incident and has happened often before. The flashback part of this story takes place the night after that incident. The present day part of the fic takes place after Jed has been censured by congress for not revealing to the nation that he had multiple sclerosis before he was elected.
Canon note: We don't know how Jed and Leo first met. Leo states at different times that he's known Jed for 40 years, or 32 years. It's not remotely canon that they went to school together but I liked the idea as a flight of fancy .
Author's Note: Distinctly unbeta'd.

Summary: Pairing: Jed Bartlet/Leo McGarry
Fandom: The West Wing
Rating: PG
Archive: Anywhere
Category: Post Ep vignette
Feedback: Yes please!
Summary: Jed and Leo come to terms with their actions after ordering a political assassination.
Spoilers: Posse Commitatus
Notes: This is unbeta'd. I used UK spelling. This fic is nominally set in my June 17th universe but it isn't even remotely necessary to have read that in order to understand this. This fic was written for the "5 minute fic" challenge on the Jed and Leo list although it actually took closer to half an hour
Many thanks to: dot for inspiration and chat about the Posse Commitatus episode. I found the tough choices Jed and Leo faced towards the end of Season 3 very intriguing.

Category: Slash.
Summary: Leo is forced to confront the psychological issues that the Rosslyn shooting has raised, both for himself and for Jed.
Spoilers: In the Shadow of Two Gunmen. Noel.
Keywords: This story is set in my June 17th universe
Feedback: The friendly variety always makes me happy
Posted: 29th December, 2003
Author's Notes: This fic takes place during and immediately after the events of Noel. One of the flashback sequences in this story takes place during events described in one of my other stories, Old Friends. You don't have to read that to understand this story though. The dates I used in this story are consistent with the June 17th universe.
Dedications: Thanks to Phoebe as always :-) Any continuity, canon-errors etc are all mine. UK spelling and grammar used. :-)

Rating: NC17 for loving Male/Male sex.
Category: Slash.
Summary: Two powerful men, one anniversary...and the ups and downs of a love affair spanning 40 years.
Feedback: Yes please!
Author's Notes: I'm really absurdly proud of this story. I started becoming fascinated by the Jed/Leo relationship while writing The Friday Night Club and then this story idea popped into my head and it was one of those I just *had* to write. It was a fantastic writing experience and I'm very fond of the story so I hope you enjoy it too!
Dedications: Heartfelt thanks to dot for support, information, pic URLs, bucket-loads of encouraging feedback, general pickiness and beta advice.
Special thanks to Phoebe for the usual great beta and for knowing just about everything about just about anything
Grateful thanks to Bluespirit for making me yet another beautiful West Wing pic and for managing not to include Orlando Bloom in it despite being verrrrry tempted

Posted: 6th April, 2003
Author's Notes: This fic takes place immediately after the events of Debate Camp. The timeline on the show doesn't make it clear whether the events of Game On take place immediately after Debate Camp and I don't think it really matters one way or the other so in this fic they do I don't think it's all that important!

Summary: Fandom: The West Wing
Pairing: Jed Bartlet/Leo McGarry
Rating: NC17 for loving m/m sex and for graphic scenes of torture and rape.
Category: Slash.
Summary: When Leo starts behaving strangely, Jed is left to unravel a sad story that has been untold for 30 years.
Feedback: Yes please! The friendly variety is always welcome
Author's Notes: This fic is set in my "June 17th" universe and events from that fic are referred to in this one, although it can easily be read as a standalone. Please note that it is slightly AU both from the real WW universe and the real world in terms of dates - US bombing raids in Vietnam had stopped in 1970 and Leo was in Vietnam a little earlier but those are the dates I started with in "June 17th" so I thought I'd continue with them.
Dedications: Huge and heartfelt thanks to Phoebe for being the source of such amazing knowledge on Vietnam and for the usual in-depth beta.
Thanks also to dot for support.
Special thanks to Sergeeva for the striking title graphic.

Refugees by Falada Rated: FRM - Mature [ Reviews = 0 / Kudos Received = 9 ] Featured Stories
Summary: Pairing: Josh/Matt Skinner
Rating: R
NOTE: This is an old, still-to-be finished story. It was inspired primarily by Season 2's "The Portland Trip," in which Josh met with Matt Skinner, a conservative Republican congressman played by Charley Lang, to discuss an anti-gay marriage bill, and "Noel," in which Josh suffered a post-traumatic melt-down. Major characters are borrowed from TWW's true owners, and bits of dialog quoted, with respect and not for profit.
The title comes from Leonard Cohen's "Anthem": "Every heart/ to love will come/ but like a refugee."

Author's Notes: This story hasn't been beta'd so all mistakes and Briticisms are mine. I really wrote it as a bit of spanky relief from the huge long epic that was Old Friends and didn't realise it would turn out so long in its own right It just seemed to me that Jed was doing a very good James Dean impression at the end of the episode Manchester (see pic from the ep above) and was particularly surly and in need of a good spanking And poor Josh meanwhile just couldn't give himself a break over the mistake he made on the tobacco issue. So, Leo *really* needed to step in and sort them both out...

This is a sequel to my old story `The Man in the Picture'. It is posted on my website at: www.angelfire.com/realm2/wayfinding/picture1.html
But basically in that story Josh is shown photographs of Sam kissing a man. This is serious for Sam because he is a Congressman and has been married to Lisa since early on in the Bartlet administration. Sam has been tricked into the kiss. As Josh helps Sam avoid a scandal they realise the strength of their feelings for each other but decide that to preserve Sam's career Sam must remain married and they must not do anything about their feelings. I depressed everyone with that ending so this is to give the guys another go at sorting themselves out.
I wrote this without having seen any of S6 or 7 but having picked up bits and pieces of what was going on from the internet, so the election outcome was (obviously) for my own purposes.
This story is dedicated to the candidates for the UK Liberal Democrat party leadership, two of whom got outed by the press when I was looking for something to write about.
As usual, excuse errors in my understanding of the US political system etc.
