TITLE: Things Fall Apart

CATEGORY: Jed/Abbey, Leo/Margaret, Sam/other, new character. We're pretty much AU at this point.

SPOILERS: If it's been on the show, it's fair game. This series is kinda AU, I'm using material from the show, but fooling around with the order of events and some of the details.

RATING: PG to R, I'll list it in each chapter.

SUMMARY: "So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past." –F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby. The past comes to the present for a lot of people, Leo and Margaret plan their wedding, and Sam and Cassie try to move on with their lives while moving away from each other. This is the sequel to "All Come Undone."

AUTHOR: Natalie Wilson

ARCHIVE: Sure, just let me know.

DISCLAIMERS: Standard disclaimers, West Wing characters are property of Aaron Sorkin, Warner Brothers, NBC, etc. No money is being made off this.

AUTOR'S NOTE: Here's how it works, each chapter is divided into different parts, the parts in italic (or for those of you reading this on a yahoo group the parts preceded and followed by ############) denote past events, the rest is present. There are some shifts in point of view throughout the story. The parts of this story are slightly more interwoven than my previous stories, so I would like to take this opportunity to apologize for the delay. Just to forewarn you this story is going to deal with some heavy topics, such as the death of a child. I will be devoting a large portion of this story to the Sam/Cassie storyline, but L/M fans needn't worry there will be a healthy dose of them in the later chapters and of course they'll be featured along the way.

NOTE: From time to time I get requests for the order of the stories in this series. So I'm just going to post them here so everyone can see them. The Cassandra Bartlet Series:

    1. An Unexpected Visitor
    2. It's All Coming Back to Me Now
    3. Burn for You
    4. Angel
    5. A November Wedding
    6. Thanksgiving in New Hampshire
    7. Deliveries, Arrivals and the State of the Union
