Very well done. I miss that show. (Of course, while it was on, I missed most of the shows because my wife didn't like it, but whatever...)
Thanks for the story.

Delightful. I liked the way things worked out.

Wonderful job! This really read like an episode. You have their particular mods of interaction down pat.

well i read, i love and i could definately see this on the show, if not all at least most and btw, you are keeping us in the dark. did Sam REALLY walk into the door? Hmm, I'll wonder as I continue reading more stories from you. Nicely done and I hope to see more soon.

I really liked this. It read just like a real West Wing script to me. Very in-character, with the people and the general feel of the show. And I love how it was Margaret's quote! Great job.

I'm typing this review as I read, so pray pardon if it seems unstructured and a bit random.
Firstly I have to say this: "Your future, Donna! I am not having a sex change!" XD That is so funny and /so/ Josh! I could see it happen in an episode. I could also see all the staffers in the Bullpen staring at him, mouths hanging open.
Leo and Bartlett's exchange about the mystery quote also makes me laugh. How typical of the President to boil something down to its' most uncomfortable fundamental aspect: "It makes us look unprofessional." "Because we tell the truth?" Then the comment about making up wiht Abbey: "I need a strategy." "Or a personality transplant." XD
I like the Charlie/Bartlett banter a lot. Charlie's good-natured confusion and willingness to do the job even if he doesn't understand it is completely in character.
"You might also let them know that the White House Deputy Chief of Communications has difficulty walking through doors" "It's a real red-letter day for this administration." XD
I loved the bit with Sam and Toby brainstorming. That is another moment that I could clearly see in my head.
I might have got a bit repetative typing in quotes and how much I liked a bit, but this was a wonderful story. In fact, I could have seen this as an episode of The West Wing. Such a wonderful story. Well done for your hard work!
BenRG's Rating: 9/10

Nomad, that was FANTABULOUS! You got the voices down for everyone, had the wit rolling out left and right, and you got Margaret in there defending Leo! Yay! I loved the whole thing with the chocolate brownies as well. Maybe if Sorkin continues his writing downward spiral, we should petition the show to get you a part time writing job at least.

This was fabulous. Fun, quick, witty, smart. It felt like a *real* episode. I loved this line by Josh: "Because we can never have too many witty women." Truly, this was a wonderful read.

Perfect as usual. Loved the president with Charlie- poor him! not allowed to sample the produce after saving the White House from a possible fire :) And J/D was lovely, not to mention Sam's unfortunate... er... incident. Another great job- you never fail to impress, amuse and entertain!

Nomad, your stuff always rocks. Hilarious, and sounds just like the real thing.

| Perri Smith chapter 1 . 5/14/2002
Witty and quick; I could hear the voices and see the pedeconferencing. Awesome job, nomad!
