* Elizabethtown *
What brings two people together? Is it circumstance? Fate? Luck? Are there souls in this world destined to meet? Do soulmates exist? How do our choices affect our outcomes? Whatever it was that brought Drew Baylor and John Depford together that fateful night in the corridor of the Brown Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, may well have been some form of kismet. Coming together, though, is only one step in the journey. The path to staying together is strewn with hard work, countless obstacles, and many choices. At this point in time, Drew Baylor, who had spent eight years of his life in conception and design, has no blueprint for his future. John Depford, the writer, has unfolded a blank page in his personal memoir, uncertain how to fill it. The only thing either of them is truly sure of is that something profound transformed them both the night they met, altering their course, reconfiguring their destination, bringing them to this crossroad. In the road trip of life, there are many signposts. The question: Which ones do they heed?

Sandburg must decide whether or not to risk himself to help the endangered detective, a decision made more difficult by the inexplicable, yet undeniable attraction he feels towards this man he's just met.
"At the Pleasure of the President" by Tiger Tyger
In this crossover story with "The West Wing," President Jed Bartlett's daughter has been kidnapped, a turn of events that lands the Sentinel and his partner smack in the center of the White House's West Wing.

"Seasons Change" by Glow
It is a week after the events of "The Sentinel by Blair Sandburg" and Blair is in his office at the university, packing up his belongings.
