Pairing: Josh/Donna
Fic Title: In This World
Author: little_zigzags
Link: Part One Part Two
Rating/Warning(s): R
Genre: Romance, Post-Gaza
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:

An incredibly well-written fic where Josh works through and explains what was going on with him, post-Gaza. Takes place at Camp David with most of the gang making an appearance--lovely friendship notes throughout. The author begins and ends with Frost's A Servant To Servants. The characterization and voices are incredibly spot-on, and the language is beautiful. A breathtaking piece, and probably my favorite J/D fic, ever.

She sighs. Some days she can’t fathom how old they have become, how different she seems than the person who had waltzed into his office all those years ago. But looking at him now, she wonders how different they really are. She’s still his assistant, still carries his bags and answers his phones and when she catches him looking at her, he looks away. He’s been shot and she’s been somersaulted through the air in a ball of fire, and sometimes the need for change is a burning knot in her throat.
