Fanfic Recs: The West Wing
Proof that the remaining 10% is worth being elected President for
These are recommendations made by tropers for The West Wing
fanfics, all of which have to be signed to stay on the page. After a few samples, you will be able to note the interests of the tropers recommending them, and judge whether you might be also interested in a certain 'fic.
Feel free to add a fanfic of your own to the list, but remember to use the template found herenote
. Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexual or non-canon
territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping
is Serious Business
Reviews of fics are encouraged, but if you choose to write one, please make it substantive, and give specific details about what you liked / disliked in the fic. If you want to give a fic a thumbs-up without writing a full review, you can add your troper handle to the Recommendations Line. Please refrain from posting "Comments" or Conversation in the Main Page
though; that goes in the discussion page.
Title of the Fanfic by Author OR Fic Trope Page, by Author (Link)
- Recommended by: Troper Name
- Synopsis: What's the story about? Give here a brief summary of the plot. It would be also useful to point out in what moment of the series the story takes place. If it's a Gen Fic but it has some romantic elements, note here the characters involved too.
- Pairing(s): If it's a Shipping Fic, list here the pairings that feature in the fic (warn here if it's het, male slash or female slash). If it's a Gen Fic, remove this line. To tell the difference between the two, notice if the focus of the fic is on a romantic relationship or if it focuses on the other aspects of the story. In case of doubt, classify the story according to the genres it's been tagged: the Romance tag for Shipping, absence of that tag for Gen Fic.
- Tags: If any are known. This would be things like WAFF, Lemon, Dark Fic, any known Crossovers etc.

2010 US Presidential Election
by Multiple Authors
- Recommended by: Lavanya Six
- Synopsis: A long-running, day-by-day account of the ongoing politics of The West Wing post-finale, from December 2008 up to the present day (Jan. 2013), as told by in-universe news articles. The Santos Administration grapples with the Great Recession and increasingly unpopular open-ended peacekeeping commitments inherited from the Bartlet Administration. Meanwhile, the Republicans suit up for a bruising Presidential nomination battle.
- Notes: The title is an artifact at this point, as now the main storyline centers around the 2014 Presidential Election.
