Author has written 8 stories for West Wing.

I've written fan fiction off and on at various points in my life for years (although I didn't always call it that). I became a "belated" fan of The West Wing in 2008, watching all seven seasons on DVD. My favorite pairings are Josh/Donna, Sam/Ainsley, Charlie/Zoey, and Matt/Helen. Since the series finale left me wanting more, I especially enjoy Santos administration fics!

Follow me on Twitter -- @CatLadyLC -- if you're so inclined. I tweet mostly about politics and "The West Wing".

This title is not nearly as clever as I like to think it is. Josh speaks now, for he's never been good at holding his peace.

Gaza by Muffins and Bagels reviews
This is my take on episodes 5x21 (Gaza) and 5x22 (Memorial Day). It follows Josh as he flies to Germany to see Donna after the attack, but I have added a few scenes that I think could have/should have happened, even though we didn't see them.
