Title: What Is Okay
Pairing: Anderson Cooper/Keith Olbermann
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 2600
Warnings: Unbetaed, cigarette porn, detailed description of what sounds a lot like clinical depression, including abstract discussion of suicide
Summary: Anderson is okay. He's always okay. He has to be. He's got to go teach the country about the bad things that happen in rural mountain communities. He's fine.
Notes: Theoretically fits in with something larger, but works on it's own. Guest starring environmentalist propaganda. Feel like I should emphasize I know nothing about Anderson Cooper apart from what's known to the public at large and I would be extremely surprised if his reality resembled this.

“I can feel it sometimes,” he wants to say to Keith. “I know when it's happening.” )
Title: It's Going To Happen Again
Pairing: Anderson Cooper/Keith Olbermann
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Unbetaed, detailed description of clinical depression
Summary: A decision is made.
Notes: The prompt: "Make it a happy ending. Take a scenario that you can't imagine having a happy ending -- say, someone's stranded in an alternate universe, forever, or sent off to be executed -- and fix it." There was only one answer. I stand by my assertion that this happy, though it may not be an ending.

An hour after the sixth or seventh time Keith talks Anderson through the existential hole he's sunk into. . . )

There's no other way to account for his presence save the obvious – a malevolent, or perhaps merely whimsical, God. )
