I can't believe I'm doing this - Nikki's Notations
A Slash Friendly Journal
I can't believe I'm doing this
I blame several people on my flist for this (you know who you are, don't make me name you *g*).

Yes, it's another challenge - but again with a different. It's 50ficlets which is a challenge for stories between 100 and 1,000 words. And I'm not claiming a pairing for this, instead I'm claiming NCIS general series as it will allow me to play with other characters and maybe pairings (that don't, I hasten to add, involve my OTPs) in a way I haven't really explored/been able to do. So there will be a mixture of slash, het and gen in this challenge. It should be fun, and somewhat different from a lot of other challenges.

There are some excellent tables from which to choose, five in total, plus you can mix and match and use any of the prompts from any of the tables to form your own table. I've actually chosen table #05, as again I thought the prompts were rather different and added an extra challenge.


#01Black & White.
#02Me And You.
#03Sent Away.
#04Missing You.
#05Will Never Be.

#06First Love.
#07Getting There.
#08Hit Or Miss.
(Ducky & Jimmy)
#09Touch Me.
#10Light & Dark.
#11Thunder & Lightening.
#12Me Or Them.
#13Hand On Heart.
#14Heaven & Hell.

#15Good & Bad.
#16 Right Or Wrong.
(Gibbs & Fornell)
#18Hurt Me.
#19Lost & Found.
#20 Naughty Or Nice.
#21 Two Faced.
(Gibbs & Ducky)

#22 Bone Deep.
#23 Aches & Pains.
#24 Save Me.
#25 Make Me.
#26 Break Me.
#27 Fast Forward.
#28 Flash Back.
#29 Special Delivery.
#30 Boys & Girls.
#31 Growing Up.
#32 Finding Out.
#33 Mix 'N' Match.
#34Flip Side.
#35 Lucky Break.
#36 Eating Out.
#37 Feeling Good.
#38 Beautiful Disaster.
#39 Chaos Theory.
(Tom Morrow)
#40 Where You Belong.
#41 Time & Tide.
#42 Follow My Lead.
(DiNozzo & McGee)
#43 Cheap Shot.
#44 Lock And Key.
#45 Keeping Secrets.
#46 Coming Out.
#47 Let Me In.
(Gibbs & Ducky)
#48 Talk To Me.
#49 You're Mine.
#50 Give & Take.

50/50 - Completed 4th February 2009

The only real problem is this now gives me 31 challenges (of which, I hasten to add) I've completed 24) and 850 stories (of which I've completed 605) and you all know what I'm like with 'unbalanced' numbers. Hmmmm.

I think it's catching.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 10:07 (UTC) (Link)

So it is :-)
sharpiesgal From: sharpiesgal Date: 19th July 2008 17:55 (UTC) (Link)
So not solely taking the blame for this.

*hides behind Five*

It's his fault.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 10:08 (UTC) (Link)
Indeed, it is not solely your fault.

It's nice to see that all of those who have to share the blame recognise that fact :-)

Poor Five.

i shall not waver! i have a lot of challenges to do to. *wimper*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 10:09 (UTC) (Link)

I told myself that all day *sigh*

Then I told myself, 50 fics between 100 - 1,000 words, with no time limit, that's doable.

So I didable :-)
honeybearbee From: honeybearbee Date: 20th July 2008 19:25 (UTC) (Link)
It is doable! *wavers*

If I do join, I have to finish one of my others at least.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 21st July 2008 11:52 (UTC) (Link)
It is :-)

Hee. Well I thought I'd finished quite a lot so . . .
bjjones From: bjjones Date: 19th July 2008 19:24 (UTC) (Link)

I can't wait.......
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 10:10 (UTC) (Link)
Ah, another of the 'I blame you'


aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 19th July 2008 21:15 (UTC) (Link)
Hee! Another challenge yay!

Quite clearly though you might need to make a round number *cough*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 10:11 (UTC) (Link)

I know. I know. But . . . It does look a good one, and I've never claimed a general series before, so it could be fun.

You are as bad as me!
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 20th July 2008 10:44 (UTC) (Link)
I think it;s an excellent one. It will certinaly produce good Nikki-fic I feel.

That's why I never ocunt mine ;-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 15:07 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you for your confidence, I do hope so.

*g* oooo *waits patiently for stories*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th July 2008 15:08 (UTC) (Link)

Thank you.

I'm trying to sit on bunny for the immediate future because of Big Bang - but I did hand scribble one story last night *sighs*

*Glares at bouncing bunny*
adriannacoylho From: adriannacoylho Date: 21st July 2008 09:12 (UTC) (Link)
*g* Hand scribbling is good ;) It's so tempting to start isn't it! *glares at bunnies with you* I claimed Gibbs/Ducky for 10_quotes about a month ago and I haven't even let myself put a table on my LJ yet as I know I'll only get sidetracked!! Never enough hours for writing *sighs*

The prompts are indeed excellent for this challenge - and claiming general series is a great plan. It will be interesting to see where this takes you... :)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 21st July 2008 12:06 (UTC) (Link)
Well if you saw my hand scribbling you wouldn't necessarily think it was 'good' (put it this way I sometimes struggle to read it). When I was working at the OU J once rang my secretary to ask what something was on the shopping list *blush* The office I managed had a good laugh at that - so did I.

Oooh, did you now? You kept that quiet :-) More G/D wonderful. And a comm I don't think I'd seen *Bad Nikki* I know what you mean about not putting the table up.

I rather like them and I hope it'll be interesting. Thank you for your interest.
adriannacoylho From: adriannacoylho Date: 22nd July 2008 10:17 (UTC) (Link)
*chuckles* Just because we're 'writers' doesn't mean we can actually write now does it? ;)

I did *g* Yes more G/D :) be nice when I actually find time to get on with all these challenges! Ooh hadn't you? Glad you understand!

akane42me From: akane42me Date: 23rd July 2008 21:14 (UTC) (Link)
I'm speechless. Is there a time limit on this sort of thing?
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 24th July 2008 12:10 (UTC) (Link)

Not on this one, no. I checked before I signed up.

I have done a couple with time limits and have vowed 'never again'. It's odd because I like deadlines and as you see I'm fairly prolific, but the couple that had deadlines (one was every month, one every three months and one every six) really pressured me. Two of those were also fairly specific too with one being a songfic and the other a first times challenge.

I have to say I don't get deadlines on this kinds of challenges, I don't see the point. It's all meant to be about fun and enjoyment.
akane42me From: akane42me Date: 26th July 2008 13:40 (UTC) (Link)
Oh, good, I'm glad you're not dealing with deadlines, with the number of irons you've got in the fire!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 26th July 2008 17:27 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you.

I've made a vow, no deadlines (unless it's one story a year) for fanfic challenges. It's too tough.
