Welcome to the 4th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon!

The Ficathon is a celebration of the return of Numb3rs and has purposely been timed to take place over hiatus so that a) we all have a reason to live until the new season starts *g*, and b) the posting of the fic will coincide (for the most part, anyway) with the premiere of the fifth season.

This year’s theme, Numb3rs Gets Clued In, is based very loosely on the game Clue. How loosely, you ask? Well, we’re going to assign you a prompt consisting of a person, place and thing, and you have to use those three items in your fic. However, how you use your assigned prompt is up to you. They can form the basis of your entire fic, merely be mentioned in passing, or be alluded to only indirectly; you may twist the prompt however you like.

To make things even more interesting, the “person” will be one of the guest characters (excluding the oft-writ Coop and Edgerton), we’ve met on the series.

Rules:

Please note that, even though prompts will be assigned in a format based on the game Clue, you are not expected to write a ‘Colonel Mustard in the kitchen with the candlestick holder’ type of fic. Unless that’s what you want to write. *g* Remember, how you use the prompt is entirely up to you, and you may twist it however you like.

You may write any slash pairing (that includes both m/m and f/f slash), any rating, any genre. There is no maximum word length, but stories should be at least 1000 words. (That’s only about 3 pages, folks!)

Please note that you do not need to have a LiveJournal account to participate in the Ficathon.

Sign-Up:

To sign up, comment below with the following information:



Prompts will not be mailed. The entire list of prompts will be posted here at [livejournal.com profile] numb3rsficathon. It will be announced everywhere we announced the Ficathon, but if you want to make sure you get it on your f-list, please friend us!

The most important thing is, have fun! *g*

Warning: Here there be incest. Some people will choose to write the Don/Charlie pairing. You need not be concerned that you will stumble upon it by mistake, as all pairings will be listed on the master list when it’s posted. If you do not wish to read this pairing, then you can skip it.

Can you post a list of the guest characters (since you must have a list if you're handing them out)? You're only giving us one opt out so it would be helpful to be careful who to pick. Several people so far have said they can't think of anyone so it's clear that a list would help people remember and pick out who they wouldn't want to write.

I see.

Well, in case it's helpful, this thread (http://sororcula.livejournal.com/145656.html?thread=741880#t741880) has a long list of female characters on Numb3rs.

Guest Character you wouldn’t write if we paid you (please choose only one): I guess it depends on how you define a guest character. Millie, if the only non-guest N3 females are Amita, Terry and Megan. If you consider Millie a recurring and not a guest then I guess I'll eschew Margaret.

Guest Character you wouldn’t write if we paid you (please choose only one): Only one? Um Liz then, she seems to be pretty unpopular but quite frankly all the girls they throw at Don are pretty flat and lifeless.

Guest Character you wouldn't write if we paid you (please choose only one): Lt. Walker, the LAPD officer. Also, since everyone's been putting her in this space, I thought I'd put that I would be willing to write Liz.

Also, this might be a useful resource for writers which I found today: http://www.redhawke.org/content/blogcategory/3/7/
Redhawke's Numb3rs pages. Episode summaries, character notes including minor recurring characters, etc.

While I'd love to give it a try, I haven't watched Numb3rs since s2 (I kinda lost interest at the beginning of s3). I still love the first two seasons, though so is it possible for me to sign up but only get a person from s1 and s2? I guess I could swing it but y'know, I can't be hold responsible for the final outcome :D

I'd really rather not write Charlie's rival Marshall (Pennington, I think his name is?) A thoroughly distasteful character and I don't think I could do his ick factor justice.
