New Multi-Fandom Fanfiction Challenge Community
So any of you who didn't' know, I can prove that I am definitely certifiable :-)

As most of you know, in August, as I was nearing the end of the fanfic100 challenge, I signed up to write another 80 Gibbs/Ducky stories spread over four challenges (10_hurt_comfort, 20_1sttimes, philosophy_20 and 30_memories).

However, I was never comfortable with the number and spent a lot of time trying to find another 20 (okay, so I'm weird like that, I like the symmetry behind 100), but I couldn't find any challenges that I liked. The solution was simple: create my own challenge community.

So I have: 20_est_relships.

It's an Established Relationship Challenge, i.e all 20 stories have to be about established relationships (there's a first time challenge community, so I thought an established relationship one was needed).

The big difference between this and other challenge communities is that up to five people can sign up for the same pairing at any time, you don't have to wait until the person who has claimed them either completes all 20 or drops their claim). So if any other Gibbs/Ducky lovers wish to sign up, never fear, you can.

Like all non-fandom specific challenges, it is a multi-fandom challenge, the only proviso is that you have a pairing who are already in an established relationship. The pairing can be slash (male/male, female/female) or het (male/female); you can even sign up with original characters should you wish to.

If you'd like to know more and/or sign up go to: 20_est_relships.

Good for you! I know how you adore ER. Just like I do the FT. That community however doesn't do rps unfortunately *sigh*, so who knows when I've done a couple more stories for the 100moods I might even sign up for ER!
I guess it would be a real challenge for me writing ER! ;))

Read the FAQ after my post, I guess I lucked out on that. NEver mind!

Sorry, sweetheart.

I mulled that one over for ages, before deciding not to go with it. As I say in the FAQs I have nothing against it, and some of my dearest friends (one being you) write it, but a Community is a tad more accessible generally in many ways than a personal journal. And as Comm owner, any issues might fall on my head, more than the people writing - it any arose. Maybe I'm just being ultra-paranoid, after all lots of Comms do allow it, but...

It's not necessarily set in stone, so if I do change my policy, I shall let you know.

I hope you understand. Tis nothing personal at all. In fact you were my main reason for hesitating over whether to allow it or not.

No problem dearest, I understand. A comm is indeed different so don't worry about it and thanks for considering it anyway.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 29th October 2006 16:02 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you for being understanding. I hate the thought that I might upset my dear friends.

*Hugs*

Oooh, this is a good idea (apart from that little point that you are insane, but, you know, in a good way :-) ).

Sadly I have, oh, 55 stories still to write for my *first* table for my boys. But I do like Established Relationship stories, so I'm sure there will be a lot of nice things for me to read in the meantime...
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 29th October 2006 15:51 (UTC) (Link)
*Giggle* Thank you. Glad you think so. And how kind of you to say that I'm insane in a good way - that is much appreciated :-)

I'm amazed at how far you've got with your first table, note I too said 'first', given all your other commitments! So who knows...
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 29th October 2006 18:31 (UTC) (Link)
You already know I think it's great idea ;-)

I'm sure it will go well. I shall go a pimping...

I'm glad you think so. *Looks forward to 20 F/V ER stories*
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 30th October 2006 12:16 (UTC) (Link)

Now all I need to do is write...hee hee...

TYK

And yes, you do indeed.

BTW, did you realise that you aren't watching the Comm? Which means any posts won't appear on your f-list.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 31st October 2006 11:56 (UTC) (Link)
I didn't whoops. I am now. Force of habit I don't tick the watch box ;-)
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 31st October 2006 12:31 (UTC) (Link)
Yep, comments are definitely being eaten by the goblins!

Argh!!!!!

:-) Happy watching.

It could be!

And it is.

Fantastic!!

I knew you'd find another one to make it up to 100...

But hey its all good for us cos this means there's more great stuff to read!

*hugs tight*
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 30th October 2006 11:36 (UTC) (Link)
Thank you so much.

You know you could always manage another 20 stories :-)))

And I'm much happier now I've found a way to make it up to 100.

*Hugs*
