This community is dedicated to the slashy pairing of Sam Seaborn and Josh Lyman from The West Wing. Feel free to join. :-)

Community rules:

To join or post, you must be 18 or over.

This community contains slash and adult content rated NC17. If this is not your cup of tea, or you're not legally of age to read such things, move along. No flaming or trolling tolerated.

You can post fanfiction, fan art, challenges, links and discussions about SS and JL.
Off-topics posts and any other posts that don't follow the rules of this community may be deleted. Off-topic posts include fic and topics that have nothing to do with SS or JL. Actor slash is prohibited as well.

Both slash and gen content is allowed. So is het, but since this is a Sam/Josh community, that pairing should be the main focus of your fic/art. All ratings (G through NC17) are permitted, but please put NC17 fics behind an LJ-cut.

Fics longer than drabbles (100 words), large images, multiple fics/images/icons etc., as well as adult content or squick, should be posted behind an LJ-cut.


Please don't just post a link to your story/art/whatever, post the actual thing.

When posting fic/art, please write the title in the subject line and include a header with the following information in the post itself:

Rating: [G, PG, PG13, R, NC17]
Spoilers: [episode(s)/season(s)]
Warnings: [if applicable; please warn for adult content in case of art]
Archive: [yes/no]
Author's/Artist's notes: [if applicable]
If you want to save a little time, you can copy/paste this:
<b>Author's/Artist's notes:</b>

Again, unless it is a drabble (i.e. exactly 100 words) please put the story behind an LJ-cut.

Having your fics betaread or proofread would be preferable, but please run a spell- or grammar check at the very least.


The West Wing and all characters within belong to Aaron Sorkin, NBC and Warner Bros. This community is for fun, not for profit.
