Now I know I'm utterly obsessed or is it devoted?
This is all the fault of toby_white_wolf; really it is.

As you know I'm doing the fanfic100 challenge for Gibbs/Ducky (what do you mean you didn't know *g*). A day or two ago, I posted my 91st story and the final nine are all 'in progress'. So what does one do when one gets to that stage?

Well...

It's like this...

I started to look around for more challenges. Yes, I know, I know, I am obsessed, insane, brave, and lots of other things - what can I say, I like a challenge.

As I said it is all toby_white_wolf's fault for finding such great challenges, signing up for them and posting the tables in her journal - I got hooked. (It had nothing to do with the promise of chocolate if I wrote more Gibbs/Ducky *g*)

So I signed up for four at the moment - no not 100 each (I'm not that mad); in fact none are 100. They add up to a mere 80 stories.

They are:

10_hurt_comfort - Oddly enough I don't really write that much h/c, so I thought ten would be a gentle challenge
20_1sttimes - I thought this would be a real challenge for me, because, as you know I much prefer established relationship stories.
philosophy_20 - I liked the prompts for this challenge
30_memories - I liked the prompts for this challenge

And yes, they are all Gibbs/Ducky.

And no I'm not looking at any other challenges? Ooops, Pinocchio time :-)

EDIT: I've now had my application for all four confirmed.

I LOVE HURT/COMFORT

You do? ::Blink:: Wow, I'd never have guessed :-)))))

Hurt/comfort good. First times also good. All fic....goooooooooooood.

::Giggle:: Thank you, honey.

So, bought the rope, when can I tie you to the desk?

LOL Anytime you like.

BTW, of QoA, if you ever feel the urge when things have improved, there's a challenge that would suit you down to the ground 30 Angsts

Congratulations! Hee ;-)

Are Gibbs and Ducky pleased?

*I must get on with fanfic100*

But well done, you've done so well.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 19th August 2006 12:26 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you.

Gibbs is muttering about 'how dare I consider hurting his Ducky', but Ducky is placating him. So...

You must get your stories prompted (Gibbs says so).

Thank you *Hugs*

Good God Nikki :)

Well more for us to read. :)

Thank you, Ren. I shall endeavour to please.

I think you're quite brave, but as this is what you do and like best... Excellent!
You definitely will have fun!


I've gone over all the challenge comes and have signed in for a claim in the 100moods. My very first one! *shakes head* I hope I know what I'm doing. :)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 19th August 2006 13:11 (UTC) (Link)
Thanks, my dear. I think I'll have fun.

Well done you! I looked at that one too. We'll see...

Of course you know what you're doing. I'm delighted for you.

*Hugs*

*tries to look innocent and fails*

Goodie!! More gibbs/ducky fics...

*grins*

*hugs*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 19th August 2006 13:10 (UTC) (Link)
Innocent???? No way!!!

Thank you. I'm so glad that you are looking forward to them.

*Hugs*

Woman, you are bleeding nuts!

ok, now that I got that out of my system....lol

Looking forward to what you will cook up, and no, I'm not brave enuff to follow your lead...snerk

*hugs*

I'll stick my four claims at FanFic100. I think I'm down to 351 stories to go.

Anyone know where is my Muse at???!!!!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 19th August 2006 14:19 (UTC) (Link)
Hang on, hang on. I'm not the one who signed up to do FOUR fanfic100 claims :-)))))

I don't think you should take anymore on - yet. Maybe when you're down to 300 :-))))

::Hunts for Sharpie's muse::

Oooh. The prompts for the 30_memories look very unique. I'll look forward to seeing what you do with them all.

Chocolate is a great motivator - and of course S4 is coming up which I assume will bring with it a lot more inspiration and hopefully more than a few Gibbs/Ducky moments.

I think I've written 39 or 40 of my slash_100 stories. You're certainly an inspiration to complete challenges! (that, and the boys get antsy in my head if I don't give them somethingto do ;-) )
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th August 2006 10:00 (UTC) (Link)
I rather liked the look of the memories ones! I'm actually switching a few of my remaining nine in progress stories from FF100 to the new ones, as they'd fit perfectly!

Chocolate is a great motivator - and of course S4 is coming up which I assume will bring with it a lot more inspiration and hopefully more than a few Gibbs/Ducky moments.

Nods in full agreement to both parts of this! We definitely want more G/D moments in S4.

You're certainly an inspiration to complete challenges! (that, and the boys get antsy in my head if I don't give them somethingto do ;-) )

:-) Thank you. I know about them gettin antsy, Gibbs is getting bored at the moment from not having anyone to headslap! Forty is excellent going, given everything else you're doing at the same time!

Wowsers, I am amazed at the devotion and how you have followed up on such a journey through fanfic o-o I can barely get one fic done, much less 100! And now there are more!? :O

*gaspth*

I love Hurt/Comfort xD Reading that is, and writing xD! I may look through them and see if I'd give any a try, to narrow down to one fandom though! *g*

The philosophy one looks fun..they all do o-o

Good luck mon amie!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th August 2006 10:03 (UTC) (Link)
Devotion is such a lovely word :-)))

This couple are just so inspiring.

I see you have decided to give two of them a go!

Well done.

Thank you for your encouraging words and good luck to you too!

I am impressed. I'm sitting here worrying over one story and you're just plowing through a 100 like it's butter. Awesome job!
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th August 2006 10:06 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you.

It's this couple. I have never been so inspired, I really haven't.

LOL! Happy to see you over at 20_1sttimes. :-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 20th August 2006 10:10 (UTC) (Link)
:-) Thank you.

This I see as the biggest challenge for me! I'm aiming to stick to the 'first time they got together' for all of them. But they can be interpreted, I believe, as 'first time they did x in y'. But I shall try to be 'good' :-))

I must have been mad to have signed up for this one!

Who are you doing, BTW?
lonelywalker From: lonelywalker Date: 22nd August 2006 12:05 (UTC) (Link)
Slightly OT, sorry, but I was debating writing methods with myself yesterday and I wondered what you had found to be a good strategy in tackling fanfic100. You mention having several fics "in progress" - do you actually write, for example, part of A, part of B, part of C, jumping from fic to fic, or is it just a case of working it out in your head?

One of the things that frustrates me is being "stuck" on a fic, and I occasionally think about just working on another fic in the meantime. However, I'm not too sure how well this works, as it would obviously disrupt the "flow" of thought about the first fic. I'd be interested to know what works best in your experience :-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 22nd August 2006 12:47 (UTC) (Link)
No need to apologise, I always enjoy your questions.

You mention having several fics "in progress" - do you actually write, for example, part of A, part of B, part of C, jumping from fic to fic, or is it just a case of working it out in your head?

Yes ;-) Sorry, it's a bit of both. Some of the WIPs are physically started, and yes, I do move from story to story at times, if one is being particularly more demanding than another. Some of the WIPs are more a case of knowing roughly that I'm going to write a story that features xxx. I've usually got a scene or maybe two played out in my head.

If I get stuck with a story, or another bunny comes bouncing along and demanding my attention, then I do indeed leave the story and move on to another one. I then return to the first story when I'm more in the mood. I can't force myself to write, so if I have a story open and am still sitting here fingers poised over the keyboard after a few minutes or I've written maybe one paragraph and that's not very good, I close it down and move on.

I've always worked this way, it works for me and I know other writers who work this way. Equally I know other ones who can only work on one story at a time and have to start at the very first word and see it through to the end. Or I know people who can mix and match as long as the stories are from different fandoms.

If you are struggling on a story, I suggest that you try working on another story, and see how it goes. See if it does work for you.
