6th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: 1988 -- Sign Up Post

Welcome to the 6th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon!

Despite the fact that our show has been canceled, we’d like to celebrate the past six years of awesome.

This year’s theme is 1988.

That year was chosen as my best estimation of the year Don and Charlie graduated high school. Prompts will consist of one each of the top movies, tv shows and songs of 1988, so you’ll have three separate prompts, one of which will hopefully inspire you.

Die Hard, The Land Before Time, Young Guns, Dangerous Liaisons, Mystic Pizza or Bull Durham?

Mission: Impossible, 21 Jump Street, MacGyver, Moonlighting, Beauty and the Beast, or My Two Dads?

I Hate Myself For Loving You, Fast Car, Sweet Child Of Mine, Bad Medicine, Hungry Eyes, Man In The Mirror or Giving You The Best That I Got?

It’s the 80s people! *g* And that’s just a sampling of what you have to look forward to. Sign up and join the fun!

5th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Another One Bites the Dust!

The deadline for the ficathon has come and gone. Thanks so much to everyone who participated this round. *g*

A few people have let me know that their fic was going to be late (thank you for that!), so I’ll leave the Master List open for another week. The Master List will be updated with fic posted by next Friday, October 2nd. (You may still post your fic after that date, of course, but it will not be included on the Master List.)

Thank you.

5th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Reminder & Beta Sign-Up Post

There’s four weeks left before the master list goes up for posting week! Everyone got their fic done? Completely outlined? A fully fleshed-out idea? *shifty eyes* Yeah, me, too. *g*



It was suggested that a beta sign-up post might make it easier for ficathon authors to find a beta for their fic. This is that beta sign-up post. *g*

If you are willing to beta, please copy and paste the following form (or something similar) into a comment to this post and fill it out. The more information you provide, the less likely you are to have someone ask you to beta a fic you wouldn’t be caught dead reading.



Please note that you need not have signed up for the ficathon to beta. The beta services of anyone who wishes to sign up are more than welcome.

Thank you!

5th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Idea Toss

Yep, as the subject line implies, this is the place to toss around ideas for your reversal. Whether you’ve already signed up and are boggling over the sheer number of possibilities, or if you’re still sitting on the fence, come on in and throw your ideas into the hat. Offer up suggestions for other people, or tell us about the reversal you’re thinking about writing.

(You might think that I already knew who I was going to reverse when I decided to use this theme for the ficathon this year. You’d be wrong. *g* I found myself coming up with ideas and getting really excited about this theme when I was going back and forth with Andi, so I decided to create this post to give everyone someone to toss ideas around with.)

I listed some suggestions in the Sign-up Post, which I’ll repeat here to get the ball rolling:

~Charlie is the FBI agent and Don’s the math genius
~Charlie’s the student and Amita his thesis advisor
~Megan is the elder Eppes and team leader, while Don’s the profiler
~David’s the spy and Colby feels betrayed
~Colby’s the grad student and Amita the FBI Agent (Charlie struggles with his attraction to his grad student Colby Granger)
~Edgerton’s the profiler and Megan the sniper (write sniper!Megan/Amita, or profiler!Edgerton/Larry) [reversal idea snagged from [livejournal.com profile] admiralandrea]

The possibilities are endless! (And I know, that’s part of the problem. *g*)

Some of you may not want to share the ideas you’re writing, and that’s fine. But if you do want to toss the idea around to figure out where you’re going with it, that’s great, too.

So, if you want help narrowing your ideas down, or you want to flesh out your reversal, or you want to throw out some reversal ideas that you’re not going to use for others to ponder, this is the place to do that.

5th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Trading Places (aka Role Reversal)

Welcome to the 5th 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 with the premiere of the sixth season.

This year’s theme is Trading Places (aka Role Reversal). How will that work? It’s easy, you just choose two characters and reverse their roles. Maybe Charlie is the FBI agent and Don’s the math genius, or Charlie’s the student and Amita his thesis advisor, or Megan is the elder Eppes and team leader while Don’s the profiler, or David’s the spy and Colby feels betrayed . . .

You do not have to reverse the roles of the characters you will be slashing; you may choose any two characters to ‘role reverse’. For example, reverse Colby and Amita, and have Charlie struggle with his attraction to his grad student Colby Granger.

You may stick pretty closely to canon events otherwise, or go wild and crazy and make your AU even more, uh, AU-ish. (Say, make Edgerton a werewolf. *coff* If you wanted to. No pressure. *g*)

4th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Prompts

Whoo hoo! The moment you’ve all been waiting for. *g* Beside your name are the person, place and thing that make up your prompt. I started with over 60 guest characters culled from all the eps, and each of the places and things were mentioned or seen in the eps.

All three items in your prompt must be used in your fic, however you may use them in any manner that you wish: they can form the basis of your entire fic, merely be mentioned in passing, or be alluded to only indirectly. For more information, check out the sign-up post.

Prompts: )


Guest Characters: )


Remember, you have 8 weeks to write! Fic will be due between Monday, September 29th and Sunday, October 5th. Don’t post your stories before then; on the 29th I’ll create a master list and ask you to provide links in the comments.

4th Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Numb3rs Gets Clued In

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.

3rd Annual Numb3rs Slash Ficathon: Episode Titles

Welcome to the 3rd 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 fourth season.

It was a close vote, but the theme for our third Ficathon is ‘Episode Titles’. I have chosen 100 episode titles from BtVS/Ats, SPN, due South, The Sentinel and NCIS. I’ll drop those titles into a hat and randomly assign everyone two titles, one from the BtVS/Ats/SPN collection and one from the dS/TS/NCIS collection. You may use either (or both *g*) of those titles as inspiration for your fic.
