    Summary

    Sometimes he’ll text just a hotel name and room number. Sometimes they’ll catch each other’s eyes across a crowded room full of ambitious, superficial cutthroats. Now and then, she’ll text a bar name for drinks.

    Sometimes it scares them both, to think how they got here. Then they’ll think about morning, about the world outside the window, and just hold each other for one meager minute more.

    It doesn’t make sense, but then again, nothing does anymore. The only refuge to be found lies in the kind of loss of control that feels good; feels right. That doesn’t need ideology or investigation or twisted intelligence. It’s a simple sublime truth, and means everything.

    “Fuck, Rey,” he breathes into her mouth, sounding weaker than any man his size has ever been. “There are already too many walls in the world. Can’t we break this single one down?”

    Summary

    “I’m sorry you have to what?”

    By the time Rey had finished recapping her morning, Finn’s eyes had looked like they were just about ready to pop out of his head.

    “Oh, you heard me,” she said taking a bite out of her wrap, “I have to babysit Leia’s adult son while she runs for President of the United States.”

    Summary

    Grantaire is the son of the President of the United States, and he really doesn't like the French King's youngest son, Enjolras. Enjolras doesn't like Grantaire that much either. When a small altercation between them ruins a wedding and gains media attention, they're forced to feign friendship to keep the public opinion high and the Franco-American relationship intact.

    Summary

    Leo McGarry has always dealt with his family problems and personal addictions with dignity and discretion but shortly after he is forced to admit to his pills and alcohol dependency publicly another problem arises- his youngest daughter Cadence has returned to his life.
    Leo hasn't properly spoken to his daughter in two years when she did work experience on the John Hoynes' presidential campaign before leaving in a cloud of humiliation after her thesis was outed in the press as an attack on democracy. At least that's what Leo thinks.
    The truth is a little more murky. Cadence and John had an affair. The problem now is that there's still a spark between the two.
    Throw in the complications of death threats against the White House staff and their families, a world on the brink of war, and a press hungry for scandal and it's all just normal life for the West Wing staff.

    Summary

    “Guess I’ll see you around. Solo.” She adds with a smirk before turning on her heels and heading up the staircase. The sound of her heels echo against the marble floor and he finds himself rooted to this spot outside the doors of the House Chamber.
     
    Somehow he’s missed Rey Johnson in his research. A slip up. Solo doesn’t slip up.

    Summary

    What happens when a traditional, moderate conservative joins an eccentric so-far-left-we've-looped-back-around liberal on a unity ticket for President/VP of the United States? The Rogers-Stark 2020 campaign is born.
    Everyone thinks the governor won't last long, that he'll bow out long before the general election; and who better to prove the entire country wrong but New York's best crisis management firm, Barnes & Associates?
    James Barnes is the sort of man who could sell a glass of water to a drowning man—and that's just the sort of person they'll need to steal this election.

    Of course, as with most of my fics, hijinx and fuckery ensue. :)

    Summary

    **Interested in exploring Alex's relationship to mental health / how this affects Alex and Henry's relationship**

    Alex is stressed. He's juggling third year of law school, job interviews, and helping with publicity for Henry's book tour. Not to mention helping his mom on the side. She had one more year left in office, and Alex needed to help her make it count. There was some nasty stuff coming from a growing Republican opposition to immigration reform, intimating his mother’s ‘bias’ towards letting immigrants running unchecked into the country – “just look at her family”, they had said.

    So Alex had jumped at the chance to help with the policy reform without hesitation. He was sure he could balance all of it, but there was a muscle under his eye that hadn’t stop twitching in about two weeks, and Alex had started waking up in the middle of the night gasping, feeling like he couldn’t breathe.

    It didn't help that one of the lawyers also working in immigration policy reform was a little too friendly. Alex tried to convince Henry it didn't mean anything - he only had eyes for Henry.

    But he wasn't sure how much longer he could keep hiding everything.

    Summary

    The diff is almost standard really, though tricky and time-consuming: thirty-eight-year-old male, penetrating head injury from skull fragments after blunt force trauma to the parietal lobe, significant fragmentation. Considering the lawyers, Stephen’s guessing it’s some important rich boy who needs the best of the best to make sure there’s no brain damage or permanent disfigurement, and that’s a shot of satisfaction to his pride, even though this head is likely so below him it’s almost pathetic.

    He doesn't expect the head to be Tony Stark, though, nor does he expect what blooms after.

    Summary

    The year is 1968 and the planet of Earth now knows for certain that they are not alone in the universe. After being victorious in 'Nam, the United States and its allies, alongside all other nations on Earth, unite for the common good in order to prevent the Sith from conquering the Sol System.

    Will the North Atlantic Treaty Organization and the Warsaw Pact be able to put aside their differences in a detente to protect the planet they call home?

    Or will Earth fall due to the concurrent and seemingly endless Cold War?

    What about officially joining the Galactic Republic? Will the nation-states form a New World Order and also relinquish their primitive social views in the eyes of the Galaxy in addition to their sovereignty? And allow the Republic and the Jedi Order to have jurisdiction over their planet as well?

    Or will there be an alternate path for Earth? One in which the different social norms and sovereignty are preserved?

    Summary

    Ben bares an unaffected grin at her, but she’s not wrong. She was pretty damn good last night, if his hazy memories were any indication. “It’s okay, Devi. You don’t have to project—I know it’s going to be difficult to stop thinking about me too.”

    Devi’s smile sours. “I am too hungover to be dealing with you right now.”

     

    [ alternatively: ben and devi are in college, and can't seem to stop hooking up, despite their differences. ]

    Summary

    Back then, Jimin had been stupid enough to think that Namjoon would risk his political destiny for a relationship with Jimin. But one drunken night together after graduation had been enough to drive them apart. Suddenly, unexpectedly, Namjoon was leaving, and that was that. The end. Sure, they’d stayed friends. As close as two people can be from other sides of the country, but things had never been the same. Jimin didn’t think he would ever move on. It was like Namjoon had cut a permanent, Namjoon shaped hole in Jimin’s heart.
    *****************
    OR
    Namjoon is running for President and asks his college roommate, Jimin, to manage his campaign.
