WWFic Rec--Background

Fandom: The West Wing

Title: Background

Author: Ryo Sen & Jo March

Rating: Unrated

Category: Angst, Alternate Universe

Pairing: minor Josh/Donna

Summary: A series of vignettes. Another possible outcome of the events of In the Shadow of Two Gunmen.



Story Status: Complete.

Shannon's Thoughts: I went through five tissues while reading this fic. It's extremely rare that a story reduces me to tears, but this one... wow. The angst-alert on this fic was definitely warranted.

This fanfiction is AU post-In the Shadow of Two Gunmen. It deals with how the characters might have reacted if Josh had died after being shot at Rosslyn. So much angst, but the writing is absolutely gorgeous. I prefer the fluffy end of the fic spectrum, but this was... wow. Just... wow. It reduced me to incoherence--that's how powerful it was.

I'm sure that most of the West Wing fans on my f-list know about it already, but I had to rec it anyway.

Final judgment: 10/10.
