Josh x Donna, 5000 words, The West Wing. Also on AO3.

And sure I have 3 daughters but I already have a grandson and a son in law but ur my son now u get the carving knife here you go i love you happy thanksgiving give your sister CJ and your brothers Sam, Toby, and Josh a hug before you leave”

It’s so much fun, as we can see everyday, to shame and humiliate people who you disagree with politically, but it does not get anything done.
