Why this must be read: torch is well known for her steamy Krycek-centric fics. This hilarious crossover features our favorite one-armed double agent, but in a new context: making an appointment with Deputy Chief of Staff Josh Lyman to make sure that the current administration isn't about to rock the boat. Krycek's actual appearance is brief, but the banter between Josh, his assistant Donna, and his friend Sam is just terrific.

The man who slipped inside wore a suit that made Sam's look scruffy, and it made him look like a fashion model gone slightly to seed. He also wore black leather gloves. He looked at them quickly, Josh, then Sam, then Josh again. "I'm not sure both of you need to be present," he said, his voice a husky rasp. "This is just a courtesy visit. I assume you know why I'm here."

"No," Josh said, "I don't. I also don't know how you managed to set up a meeting through my assistant without giving her your name."

The man smiled a crooked little smile. "You can call me Alex," he said. "Like I said, this is just a courtesy visit. We want to make sure that the present administration isn't going to rock the boat."

Josh kept himself, with some effort, from giving the man his best you're-a-lunatic stare. "Believe me when I say that if there is a boat to be rocked, this administration is going to rock it," he said. "I don't know who you are, or what you want, but—"

"Nobody briefed you?" The man frowned; it made his nose wrinkle up. "We can't have you stumbling into anything accidentally." He looked around at the walls as though seeing something that wasn't there. "If you don't have the information, this place isn't secure. Meet me at the Reflecting Pool at midnight."
