patchworkgirl_, this is for you.  I know its not what you asked but as I sat, thinking and thinking, I just could not come up with a scenario that seemed likable to me.  But as I was getting over that, this little ditty came into my head and I offer it to you.  Not to say that something more likable wont come to my head on your previous request (male slash is rather new to me).  I hope you enjoy, and everyone else can too......if you like. I rather like.

Characters: Josh, Sam
Pairing: no pairing
Rating: TEEN
Summary: He was sure some of the things he did in private would shock those who
                    thought they knew him best.

They’d gone running this morning, way earlier than Josh would have woken up for anyone else. The man was an amazing athlete. He had strong legs, broad shoulders, and sinewy arms. Even his calves were sexy…not that Josh spent that that much time looking. Josh thought of him now as he stood in the shower. He spent a good amount of time stretching and the younger man had to admire his ass in the little runner shorts he wore. Bending repeatedly, he explained to Josh that stretching was almost as important as running, that one was essential to the other. He talked about a torn ligament as a senior in college that killed his Olympic dreams. It didn’t stop him from becoming an All-American though. He never neglected stretching again after that injury. Josh was surprised he managed to catch that much of the lecture between staring at his ass, legs and arms. 
The run was strenuous. Josh was a good runner but he was better, and for one of the first time in his life, Josh was alright with that. He could admit to slowing down on purpose to get the friendly pats on the ass or the gentle shoulder nudges followed by that killer smile. ‘Get the lead out, Lyman’ he would say as he took off a bit faster and Josh rushed to catch up. How shameless that he faked a pulled muscle in his thigh so that he would massage it, all the while telling Josh the best ways to get the kinks out after a good, hard run.
Mmm, good and hard, those two words were synonymous with how Josh felt right now, stroking himself as the hot water ran over his body. Leaning on the shower wall for support as images of his running partner with less and less clothing ran through his mind. This was ridiculous; out of control…Josh hadn't felt this way for any man since that first summer with Sam. Since those glorious summer nights of their last three weeks in DC, when Sam took his body to places it had never been before or since. Josh dreamed it could be the other man in his bed now, older and wiser, bending Josh's body to his will and making him his love slave.
“Oh God.” Josh’s knees buckled but he managed to stay on his feet as he came all over his hand and himself just thinking about it. How his lips would feel, his tongue, his hands, his cock, anywhere and everywhere until Josh begged for release. He could hardly breathe, still coming down from his climax. It would never happen; the man didn’t have a gay bone in his body. Of course who was Josh to assume what anyone liked to do behind closed doors. He was sure some of the things he did in private would shock those who thought they knew him best.
Just one night, one afternoon, one quick stroke before some obligatory meeting…that was all Josh would need. He wanted to be possessed, used, tossed aside if that gave the man his jollies. This infatuation was in no way healthy. That did not stop it from being so. He turned the water cooler, standing under it to clean himself off and lower his body temperature. Josh was steps from being a mover and shaker on the Hill; he was in the middle of the mountain on his way up. He had been with Congressman Brennan for a little over a year and already under the tutelage of his Chief of Staff, David Hart. It was only a matter of time before his name got some things done in Washington.
This was a crush, plain and simple. Josh had no more of a chance with the charismatic junior Senator from Texas than he did with Cindy Crawford. He just wanted to be close to him, be friends with him, take some of the abundant energy he radiated and let it fill his soul. He said it today when they were running, he said ‘I see big things for you, Josh’ and suddenly Josh felt as if they would really happen. As if just his words alone would move the millions of obstacles blocking where he eventually wanted to be.
Stepping out of the shower and drying himself off, Josh slipped into a pair of boxers before walking back to his bedroom. He needed to come down, needed to stop the pistons from firing in his brain. Tomorrow would be busy and he did not need another sleepless night. He didn’t need more haunting dreams and hours tossing and turning thinking of a man who was probably sleeping soundly at home with his wife. Falling down on the bed, Josh turned on the radio. Whitesnake was playing and he smirked, was the radio trying to tell him something. He hated this station and their stupid love song show anyway; how did it even end up there.
It was a sign he figured, so he picked up the phone and called the one person he knew could always make him feel better. Would he tell him what had been on his mind the past few weeks…certainly not. But he missed him too and it was time to reconnect. He was supposed to visit Washington before summer vacation was over and he started his first year at Duke Law School. Josh was not sure if anything would happen between them, it had been so long since it had, but if these thoughts and feelings continued, he knew it was only a matter of time before he reached the boiling point.
“I was just thinking about you.” Josh said.
“Bet you weren’t.”
“What are you doing?”
“Nothing that can't be interrupted. What’s happening, J; finalizing your plans of world domination?”
“Something like that. I just want to talk to you…actually I want to see you.”
“I’ll be there next week. Can you stand me over a long weekend?”
“How long?”
“Flying in Thursday night, leaving Monday afternoon.”
“That sounds perfect, Sam. I really was thinking about you. I mean, I have been thinking about other things too, but you were in there somewhere.”
“Thanks, I think.” Sam laughed. “So, tell me what's on your mind.”
“Well, Whitesnake is on the radio and it reminded me of that time we…”

Are you sure? Because its for you and I know its not exactly what you wanted but I definitely wanted it to give you a smile. I had some fun with it considering it came to me like getting hit with a Mac truck.

Weird, almost anything you say can produce some idea, even if its not the one I thought it would be : )
Bettina Dawes: Dolly Partonmothergoddamn on April 8th, 2008 01:26 pm (UTC)

Just testing that theory! No, I did really. My favourites are always the beginnings of relationships in fic.

Oh, and don't hate me but I'm on Ep 4 season 7 and I like Annabeth. *runs*
SSA McGeek: Leo cigarettemcgarrygirl78 on April 8th, 2008 03:34 pm (UTC)
Yeah, you better run. I am not a fan of Kristin and I just felt as if Annabeth was thrust on me, like the whole Josh and Donna thing. I just cannot wrap my mind around Leo actually being into her. I guess for me she was just fine until they got into all that, then I turned on her. Not her fault I guess but true. Chemistry cannot be created....I dont need it faked and thrown at me.

I'm a huge J/D shipper I'm afraid! From the very start. I watch those YouTube videos with combined clips and love songs playing over them and sob. Well, not really. :P I am glad it took seven series though because I think when the couple get together it can jump the shark a bit.("Friends", "Frasier") Not only that I find Annabeth adorable! Oh no, our relationship has hit a patch before it began! But lets not come like Matt and Harry from studio 60 or I'll have to set fire to my face. The Leo being into her hasn't begun for me yet, I'm episode 6 I think and probably be stuck there for a while because back at work tomorrow. I badly want to see The Cold but it brings me to near John/Leo death and I'm just not ready yet! Ha.

I also just watched a WHOLE episode and liked Will. LIKED WILL!?
SSA McGeek: Leomcgarrygirl78 on April 8th, 2008 05:33 pm (UTC)
Will was hot and cold for me, liked him sometimes, other times I guess I was just indifferent. For me, I know Sorkin always intended Leo to be a bit of a ladies man, thats why they got him divorced in Season 1. But Annabeth, of all the women he crossed paths with in seven years, it had to be Annabeth!!!!!! I dont know, such a CJ/Leo shipper it has clouded my judgment I'm sure. And I'm just not a fan of Kristin Chenoweth. I probably would have liked Annabeth just fine for someone who showed up at the end if they wouldnt have done this 'thing' with her and Leo.

We'll be just fine as long as you never write a story about that coupling......if you do I might have to set my face on fire. John kinda looked like he was sick in The Cold....OK, dont want to spoil anything or make myself sad. Oh Leo.
Bettina Dawesmothergoddamn on April 8th, 2008 06:05 pm (UTC)
He looks sick? Maybe he read ahead and saw he was going to bed squeaky?

My bad. Sorry.
SSA McGeek: Leo....all work and no playmcgarrygirl78 on April 8th, 2008 06:37 pm (UTC)
You are so incredibly wrong. I adore you for that.

That would have made me sick : p
Bettina Dawes: WW-CJ & Gailmothergoddamn on April 8th, 2008 10:13 pm (UTC)
And I totally passed on a "faked death to get out of it" joke so I have some class.

Although kinda ruined that by publically admitting it.
SSA McGeek: Leo full grinmcgarrygirl78 on April 9th, 2008 12:43 am (UTC)

Funny story, my friend Gillian wrote a series called Return to Me, one of which I co-authored and the last part I actually wrote, in which the CIA fakes Leo's death so he can go to Cuba and broker democracy....he was an unwilling participant. When you said that that was the first thing I thought of.
