Yoooooo but what about west wing AU with the rogue one/Star Wars characters?!???
okay. OKAY. so. i gave this much thought at work/last night and this is what i’ve come up with:
President Bail Organa: sort of kind of because jimmy smits was on the west wing as matt santos, sort of kind of because i love bail organa and he deserves more love. bail as president also allows me to do this —
First Daughter Leia Organa: come on. come on. leia in a zoey bartlet-esque role is all i’ve ever wanted. she’s simultaneously so young compared to the people around her and has so much responsibility to the public. it’s not a life leia chose, but she wouldn’t give it away for anything.
Vice President Draven: hear me out. was running for president originally, with cassian as his campaign manager. somewhere along the way, cassian realizes draven isn’t all he’s cracked up to be and convinces him to sit on the ticket with bail. not necessarily bad, but not good.
Chief of Staff Mon Mothma: she convinces bail to run because she knows they can make a difference. the absolute epitome of “do you have a best friend you trust with your life? are they smarter than you?” line from tww. she puts a lot of pressure on the rest of the staff (cassian, especially) but means well.
Deputy Chief of Staff Cassian Andor: he’s a young upstart with a law degree who took a chance and hopped aboard the Organa for America train. his relationship with draven is…complicated, to say the least. in a completely platonic will they-won’t they situation with his assistant,
Senior Assistant to the Deputy Chief of Staff Jyn Erso: nobody knows jyn’s history. all they know is she showed up on the campaign trail one day too qualified to turn away. she passed her background checks, but draven is suspicious. intensely passionate about her job, even if she sasses the hell out of cassian every chance she gets (side note: can y’all IMAGINE scenes like this between jyn and cassian??? i die)
White House Press Secretary Chirrut Îmwe: don’t let the blindness fool you. chirrut doesn’t let shenanigans in the press room slide.he knows every reporter’s voice and where they sit, so he’s always on top of questions. just make sure you tell him all the facts.
White House Communications Director Baze Malbus: you try and tell me baze isn’t toby ziegler. go on. TRY ME. you wouldn’t know by looking at him, but he’s quite the wordsmith. super grump with a heart of gold and snark for days
Deputy White House Communications Director Bodhi Rook: a friend of cassian’s from law school. just wants to make a difference, but fucks up on occasion in the process. he’s the resident sweetheart, but he might know something about jyn’s past? he’s not saying, though.
(also may or may not have slept with a prostitute)
White House Presidential Secretary Kay Tuesso: i was having trouble placing k-2, but this would be fucking hilarious. trust me.
(for shits and giggles, Personal Aide to the President Han Solo: leia isn’t sure how this scoundrel passed his background check, or why her father likes him so much, but she doesn’t. not at all. he’s…scruffy looking, alright?)
