Name:Numb3rs New Year Challenge
Posting Access:Anybody
This is the community for the New Year's Fic Challenge for Numb3rs.

About joining: There is absolutely no need to apply for a membership, because only the mod has actual posting access. This is why the membership requests will be rejected. None of the posts are in any way friends-locked, so friending the community is enough to be able to read the posts. :)


Everyone who signs up fills out the sign-up sheet. Based on your requests, you will be matched with someone else - to the best of the mods' abilities - and they will write the requested fic for you. In turn, you are assigned with another person's request and you write a fic for them. Everybody wins. :)

The minimum length of the fic should be around 500 words, so that everyone gets at least a ficlet. You wouldn't want a drabble when you could have written a 5000-word fic, would you?

The challenge is slash/femmeslash. Threesomes and moresomes are allowed, including M/M/F and F/F/M pairings, so long as slash/femmeslash are the predominant pairing.


Sign Ups: Monday, November 26, 2012 - Wednesday, December 5, 2012
Assignments go out by: Monday, December 10, 2012
Fics are due by: Tuesday, January 15, 2013
Fics posted by: Friday, February 1, 2013
Reveal on: Friday, March 1, 2013

Signing up:

Name/LJ name:
Email address:
Requested pairing(s):
Prompts (words, situations, genre, rating, etc.):
Things you don't want to see in the fic (squicks, characters):

Characters/pairings you would be willing to write:
Things (situations, genres, ratings, kinks, characters) you definitely don't want to write:

Are you willing to write another fic in case a writer drops out?
If someone needs a beta reader, will you offer to beta? Any restrictions?

You are free to list as many pairings as you want, because this will make matching you up easier. When giving prompts, think about the writer -- you don't want to give them too many details but not too few, either. A few general ideas should be enough.


You will send the fics to by January 15, 2013, after which we will look for pinch-hitters. The mods will post the fics anonymously in this community as soon as they are all received, but no later than February 1, 2013. They will remain anonymous until March 1, 2013. After the writers have been revealed, you can post the fics in any place you like (your LJ, other communities,, AO3, and such).

If at all possible, please get someone else to look at your fic before you post it. If you can't find a willing beta, please contact and we'll see if one of those who have offered to act as betas fits your fic.


If at any point you know you won't be able to write the fic at all, email as soon as possible. This way we can make sure that someone else writes the fic for you.
