[sticky entry] Sticky: Admin: Imported to DW for Archival Purposes Only

[livejournal.com profile] numb3rsflashfic has been imported to this mirror comm on DW as of 4/18/17. I imported the community for archival purposes only; I don't want to lose the fic links here should anything happen to fandom on LJ. If you're new to the fandom, please feel free to browse around.

Please comment here if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Admin: Hiatus

Because there have been no challenge responses posted here in many months, and I don’t really have my head in the Numb3rs game at the moment, Numb3rs Flashfic will be going on indefinite hiatus.

The community will not be deleted, nor will posting be disallowed. All of the existing prompts will remain open if anyone wants to write them and post their fic here, but no new challenges will be posted in the immediate future.

Thanks so much to everyone who has participated in the years since this comm was created.

Amnesty Period

The Bet challenge is now closed.

The holiday season is upon us, and for many of us RL tends to get in the way of fandom fun. For that reason there will be no new challenge issued this week. Instead, we’re going to take the opportunity to hold an Amnesty Period and encourage everyone to check out all our previous prompts (with the additional reminder that all of the past challenges always remain open for writing, even after the challenge has been officially ‘closed’).

The Amnesty Period will run for four weeks, so we'll post a new challenge on Saturday, January 16.

You can find the complete list of all 104 past challenges here. Remember to post your fic here at the comm, but since it’s for a past challenge, it doesn’t have to be exclusive to this comm for the ‘challenge period’.

Have fun!

Doubt thou the stars are fire by scrollgirl (Challenge #96: Home)

Hi, I'm new. This is my first attempt at Numb3rs fic, and at flashfic. Hope this meets the comm's rules!

Title: Doubt thou the stars are fire
Pairing: David Sinclair/Colby Granger
Rating/Category: PG-13, slash (UST)
Words: 3840
Spoilers: "Thirty-Six Hours", "Blowback", "Trust Metric", and Justice League's series finale, "Starcrossed"
Summary: David and Colby relax at home with some cartoons, but things don't stay relaxed when unresolved feelings start to surface. Set post-"Thirty-Six Hours".
Author's Note: Please be warned that I divulge some plot and romantic story-lines for Justice League and (to a lesser extent) Justice League Unlimited. If you don't know what Green Lantern, Hawkgirl, and the rest of the League look like, I posted spoilery screencaps yesterday.
