Birthday Month Fanfic Festival

My birthday is July 31, so I get the whole month of July leading up to it as my Birthday Month. I've decided that, in celebration of Birthday Month, I will post some sort of mini-fic each day. And I'm hoping you all will tell me what to write, because I'm sure it will be more fun that way. Feel free to provide any/all of the following:

1. Show/book/movie/etc.
2. Character(s)
3. Pairing(s)
4. Prompt - situation, word, image, song, quote, point in the timeline, whatever you'd like

If you don't know if I read/watch something, just ask. Make me branch out here - I don't necessarily want to write Josh/Donna every day, and some non-West Wing would probably be good for me. (I do, of course, reserve the right to not write something if I don't feel like I could do it properly. Or if it's sad. Yeah, warning now: I pretty much won't ever write anything with a main character death.)

So! What am I going to be writing for you?

Added: I'm not limiting this to one request per person or anything, because I seriously doubt there are 31 of you, so feel free to request something now and come back partway through the month for something else.

I am so not fanfic-savvy that it's not funny at all but here's what I'd like to see if it's reasonable. It's probably either Not Done or been done a jillion times, but oh well. :)

I want to see two characters from different LMM books in the same scene. They have to stay in character, right? But do they have to be era-correct? I mean, nobody knows for sure when AoGG was intended to be set anyway, right? :) Maybe Josie and Teddy meet and run away together. Maybe Miss Cornelia (or Judy?) has a few choice things to say to (or about) Dean. Maybe Pat runs into Jane in British Columbia (OK, so that would be pretty difficult to make anything besides eye-bleedingly boring...). Maybe Hilary has the job of designing Ilse's and Perry's house. Something like that.

Is that stupid? I TOLD you I was clueless.

That is NOT stupid and I will totally do it for you. Hmm. Must contemplate.

By the way, the first fanfic I ever wrote was about Una and Shirley getting together after the end of RoI.

My birthday is also July 31st! I have NO talent for writing like you, but we do share a love of all things West Wing (especially J/D)! May I request a J/D update - maybe 2 or 3 years into the Santo's administration? Happy Birthday month!

Do a Doctor Who fic (either Nine or Ten)! Pref. involving smoochies and Rose!

Oooh, a challenge. I haven't written Doctor Who before, but I'll give it a try.

Wow, you're giving other people presents in celebration of your birthday?! How nice!

I think, given my renewed obsession, I have no choice but to request a Studio 60 fic. Danny/Jordan (but appearances by the rest of the characters, especially Matt, are always acceptable). Prompt to be determined at a later date (as soon as I think of a good quote and/or word). :-)

Okay, take your time! I think tomorrow's will be a Danny/Harriet friendship thing.

This is a cool idea!!! :) My b-day's not till August 18th, but that's an awesome idea about celebrating the whole month. lol I'm not sure how many other fandoms you like that I do as well besides TWW & Josh/Donna. From my username you can tell I'm a "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" fan. ;) I was/still am a Buffy/Spike shipper, but I didn't mind Angel. Then I'm obessed with Lost, but not sure if you watch. Other shows I watch that are currently on would be like "Friday Night Lights", "24", "Glee", "Big Bang Theory", "The Office", "30 Rock", and "Mad Men".

Book fandoms would probably be anything Jane Austen or Nicholas Sparks, or "Watchmen" or "Batman/Wonder Woman".

Speaking of Nicholas Sparks books, I just read one of his called "True Believer" and OMG it was like reading an AU fic about Josh & Donna!!! <3 The characters names were Jeremy and Lexie, but seriously they were just like Josh and Donna, except Jeremy was a journalist and Lexie worked at her small town library. It was like if Josh spent a week in Wisconsin and met Donna there and fell in love with her. <3 Actually that wouldn't be a bad fic and something I'd think about writing for my first Josh/Donna fic. lol ;) I have written fics before, but mostly for Lost and Jack/Kate.

^ Forgot to add that in "True Believer" there were characters that reminded me of Toby and Sam named Nate and Alvin and they worked with Jeremy!!! LOL ;)

Any Chance you could write a Josh Lyman/Rahm Emanual fanfic?

I don't feel comfortable using real people as characters, so here's Josh talking about Rahm.
