Author’s Notes: I'd originally planned to write this brilliant piece on [wo]man vs. religion dealing with CJ and Abbey as a couple. That's what I'd signed up for in the first place. And yeah, no, that didn't happen… Damned fickle muses!
So I switched to this current idea. It's been written over the course of two evenings after work. I don't know that this is my best work ever, but I do know that I agonized over this severely. I've never written from Abbey's POV before, at least not something of this magnitude. It was more of a challenge than I'd really expected. I should know better than to think a new muse would be easy on the first date, especially one like Abbey Bartlet!
The title came after the fact, and is based on the song "Dear God". I prefer the version that Sarah McLachlan did, so that's what I'm sticking with.
Beta: Thanks for the quick beta, 4ensicbones! It's muchly appreciated!
Dedication: My muses, for always letting me stretch my abilities, even when I don't think I can do it.
