1:06 pm - Looking for a fic

Hi - not sure if anyone can help, but I'm looking for a fanfic I read some years ago that involves CJ and Danny.  CJ is pregnant and tells Danny that she cheated on him and the child is not his.  He leaves her, going to California.  Throughout the fic, Abby helps CJ until Danny finds out the baby is really his.

11:57 am - Forty-Eight Hours in Pawnee, Parks and Recreation/The West Wing crossover


Forty-Eight Hours in Pawnee, pg
Parks and Recreation/The West Wing crossover

: This is a crossover set with the season four episode "20 Hours in America." Please suspend your imagination in order to believe that these characters could be in the same place at the same time.

Words (current chapter): 1200

Notes: Go into this piece expect absolutely nothing of me, like less than nothing, and you won't be disappointed when the posting schedule for this ultimately goes completely wonky.

6:55 pm - Fic: The Amendment Game by bratty_jedi

Title: The Amendment Game
Rating: All Audiences
Setting: Sometime around about seasons 2 and 3. After Rosslyn and while Sam and Ainsley both work at the White House are really the only requirements.
Characters: Most of the main cast from that era: CJ, Josh, Sam, Toby, Ainsley, Donna, Charlie are featured with brief appearances from Ed, Larry, the president, and a couple of secret service agents.
Format: Script (~6,000 words)
Summary: The West Wing staff are locked in the Roosevelt Room during a crash and come up with a game to occupy their time. As Josh says, "We're going to cut the amendments from the constitution. You want in?"
Disclaimer: I own none of this. Aaron Sorkin, Warner Brothers, and other assorted entities own everything. They also make all the money. I am just having fun and in no way seek financial profit from their property.
Note: I am a total politics and American history geek. That is the only explanation I can offer for this fic, which is half just me indulging my geekiness and half me playing with the West Wing characters, trying to get their attitudes and voices. I'm really not sure if this will appeal to anyone other than me, but I had a blast writing it!

The Amendment Game at my LJ
While I have a lovely layout for my general purposes, some people might find the current one distracting for fic reading purposes. If you'd prefer, this link will take you to LJ's light formatting option for the entry.
