FIC POST  
This is getting kind of addicting and seriously, since I dont have any other ideas right now, I am having fun.  I picked CJ and Leo, my West Wing OTP....how the monster you guys know as Montiese the fanfic freak was born.  The reason that I know have a tattoo of his name on my skin.  The whole reason I am a complete fandom ho.  Anyway *clears throat* harlowbabe was having a bad day and though I hope she is sleeping soundly now, when she wakes in the morning she can read this, and everyone else of course too if you're in the mood.

1. Pick a character, pairing, or fandom you like.
2. Turn your music player on and turn it on random/shuffle.
3. Write a drabble/ficlet related to each song that plays. You only have the time frame of the song to finish the drabble; you start when the song starts, and stop when it’s over. No lingering afterwards!
4. Do ten of these, then post them.

 

I’ll Get By: Eddie Money (Leo)

 

I know I made promises, so many goddamn promises. I made pledges, and vows but I didn’t stick to many of them. You stood by me, through blood and bullets. You held up your head through alcoholism, MS, the Democratic National Convention. I pushed and pushed while you only occasionally pulled. You withstood the punches, remained a good wife and a damn good woman. But you couldn’t take anymore. I don’t know if I can ever change. I am old, set in my ways, rigid as hell. But I may as well be dead without you. Just tell me what to do and I will do it. I wasn’t listening but I swear I am now. Nothing is more important than you are…not anymore.

 

Something In The Way She Moves: James Taylor (Leo)

 

The sunlight catches your hair as you sleep and I fight the urge to touch you. You are tired and I need to let you be but I anticipate that beautiful, sleepy smile you always give me first thing in the morning. You’re always happy to see me. You pull me close and kiss my lips. My skin on yours makes my heart beat too fast. Your hands through my hair, you long legs wrapping around me…surely it’s a dream. You whisper soft things in my ear, sweet or dirty things, and I know I am the luckiest man on Earth.

 

Listen to Your Heart: Roxette (CJ)

 

Why can't I have what I want? I have already given up so much for this “dream” and now I will miss the one thing I never thought I would have. People tell me that I am beautiful, witty, that any man would be lucky to have me. Yet there is one man who constantly pushes me away. What is it? Why am I not good enough? To hell with everything. To hell with the press and propriety. To hell with the President and the public. I am going to wear you down…whatever it takes. It shouldn’t be too hard, we work in close proximity. You are so strong but I know your weakness. I know you lust after me and nothing you do can hide that. I won't be the first woman who used her body to get what she wanted. You want it as much as I do, you just need reminding. Stop fighting, surrender, let go and just fall. I will catch you.

 

Lover Lay Down: Dave Matthews Band (CJ)

 

By the time this dance is over, everyone will know. There have already been pictures taken and the mantra runs repeatedly through my head. The Senior Staff does not comment on their personal lives. I love letting you lead. I love being six inches taller than you, almost eight tonight. I love the feeling of your hands on my bare back and your warm breath on my neck. I love that you bought the diamond choker I am wearing and everyone keeps complimenting it. I love the way it feels to brush against you and the satisfied grin on your face. I love that this is a long song…six minutes in your arms on the President’s dime. I love the scent of you, Drakkar Noir and masculinity. I love that you will fuck me tonight, not that you don’t almost every night, but dressing up excites you. My God, you excite me, every inch of you. All five foot six and a half inches of you. Damn, I don't want it to be over. Hands linger, fingers touch, lips curl into smiles, and eyes tell the whole story.

 

No Myth: Michael Penn (Leo)

 

We are from opposites sides of the world, almost a generation between us. You are vibrant and full of life while I am the dignified lion in winter, probably fighting his last battle. Yet you come to me. You bring comfort and sometimes pastries. You indulge me, always listening to my stories. You hold me when I sleep…I can actually sleep. You even put me in my place and I love that. You walk the tightrope of professional and personal while I just stare in awe. Did I mention that you do it in pumps? What the hell does a woman like you see in me? You have told me a million times and I still don’t get it. For once, I'm not going to give a damn.

 

Whiskey in the Jar: Thin Lizzy (CJ)

 

I know what happened. You think I don’t know but I do. You can't even look me in the eye. Actually, you can't look at any of us. This is the most important day of our lives and you are hardly in the room. I am so damn angry. Not at you, you have an illness. I am angry because you won't share it with me. So this was just campaign sex. It was a way to pass the time as we ran through cities and all-American towns. The things you whispered to me didn’t mean a damn thing. You don’t trust me, you are not fond of me, and you damn sure are not falling in love with me. You only depend on one person, yourself. To hell with everyone else. You don’t even know how to stop. Except when the victory comes, you are the first one to grab me. You hold me and the truth seeps from your pores. When you whisper my name against my skin, I know we will be having a very long talk tonight.

 

Don’t Deconstruct: Rilo Kiley (Leo)

 

I cannot believe I have to do this. Why do they think they deserve to know something so personal? Why did I have to tell you and see that sadness in your eyes? Why do we have to do this question and answer bullshit? We sit across the room from each other…CJ Cregg and Leo McGarry. Not Claudia Jean and Leopold. The demands of the job, the trials and triumphs, have to come first. We will be back on the horse with State of the Union tomorrow and I don’t know how to say I'm sorry.

 

Drop the Pilot: Mandy Moore (CJ)

 

I have never had these kinds of thoughts before. I mean, I am not perfect and I have done sinful things in my life but nothing like this. I am going to steal you from your wife and consequences be damned. It’s not as if you are walking away from much. Oh God, that is an awful thing to think. Thirty years with another human being is something. I don’t care, I want you…I need you. I can see the lust in your eyes when you look at me. Come to me, you will not regret it. I don’t want a piece of you…I want it all. All or nothing. One moment is all I need and you will never leave. All I have to do is be patient; my chance is coming.

 

The Inside of Love: Nada Surf (Leo)

 

I watch the press conferences everyday. It’s my job actually but I don’t think I am supposed to enjoy it so much. I need to get a life. I get far too excited watching you seduce them two or three times a day. Some are combative, aggressive, and downright mean, but you always work your magic. Your wit, your smile, and your charm are like ambrosia. You stumble sometimes, hell you fall, and I call you on it. Still I know that no one could do what you do out there. No one could do it to them or to me. I love you, from all the way back here. Sometimes when we are close I swear to God you know. But you just smile and walk away. One day I might have the courage not to let you. I usually go after what I want…maybe age and experiences have pacified me. No, I just haven’t found the right moment. But I will.

 

Back 2 Good: Matchbox Twenty (I have no idea whose POV this is…you play with it)

 

This is the third, no the fourth time. Well we certainly can't blame it on alcohol, can we? Perhaps you are thinking of someone else, I think I might have been that first time. You blasted everyone but you from my mind. The fireworks of your touch, your kiss, the sounds of your moans and your whispers. You take my body to places it hasn’t been in too long to recall. You have brought tears to my eyes…the good tears. I cry your name, God’s name, Jesus, and once even my own.  How the hell did you make me call my own name? That was how good it was. And in the morning when you are gone, I always ache for you. Real life covers my feelings; I don’t have time to mourn the loss. I know you will be back, I don’t know when, though I am not above giving subtle hints that I want you. You read me so well…always know when to be at my door. Time number five, six, seven, eight, and nine. On the tenth night, I hold onto you and you sleep in my arms for the first time.

Lovely as always. I simply adore your CJ/Leo fics. You make this OTP work. Thanks for making my day a bit better.

You're welcome, you did the same for me by coming in and commenting. I really appreciate it. I love CJ and Leo and if I can bring other people along on the caravan, its all good : )

Beautiful as always. Thank you so much.
SSA McGeek: Claudia Jean and Leopold...this kissmcgarrygirl78 on January 26th, 2009 12:33 pm (UTC)
You're welcome. I hope they brought just a little light to your day.
Starhuggerererer.: Allison/Fic Goddesspinkinks on January 26th, 2009 04:00 pm (UTC)
Yes they did. Thank you : )
one of those regular weird people.: DLM-Sleeeeepy Georgesterling_sky on January 26th, 2009 05:41 pm (UTC)
Oooh, how lovely. I meant to comment on your CM ones as well, but I must have forgotten. I read them too. :)

BTW, since you and a couple other people I love on my flist watch CM, I thought I should give it a shot one night when it was on. And yes, it's really good and I can see how you got hooked on it. But OMG, the episode I watched scared the shit out of me! I shouldn't introduce myself to new shows on 1 am reruns. They were in a desert, and Mandy Patinkin (he's Gideon, right?) was in a diner with this guy who was killing people in an RV? Scared the crap out of me. So thanks for that. ;)

SSA McGeek: Writermcgarrygirl78 on January 26th, 2009 06:52 pm (UTC)
Thanks for reading the CM ones, I appreciate it. Yeah, No Way Out is kinda a creepy ass episode. Many in Season 1 give you the shivers....I think that's why I love it so much, even though that was in Season 2 and Emily was there *squee*. Yes, Mandy Patinkin is Gideon, I love him to death....I love them all. Its a show worth getting addicted to IMHO.

But CJ and Leo started it all so sometimes it is fun to go back to the beginning and remember why I love it so much.
