Older Not Dead Community (Not NCIS specific)
As some of you may remember quite some time ago my partner in crime aingeal8c and I set up the multi-fandom, multi-pairing older_not_dead which is basically 'love for the over 40s'.

It's a Community that's a mixture of the usual challenge promptathons/communities/ficathons/commentathons/storyathons - with one exception.

The exception is that each half of the pairing, in the stories, has to be aged forty or older. It doesn't mean that they have to be forty in the television series, film, book, whatever, just that in the story they have to be over forty.

Both slash and het pairings from any and all fandoms will be welcome (as long as in the story each half of the pair is each over forty).

We ran our first promptathon and it went down very well and we had plans to run another one a few months afterwards. However, as you may have noticed somehow it never happened - other things got in the way for both of us and time flew by and . . . We have no excuses, so we won't try to make them.

However, thanks to periwinkle27 who ::coughs:: 'nudged' me and offered an idea for the next promptathon - 'Valentine's Day'. Aingeal and I decided it would be the ideal time to resurrect the comm and so we will taking prompts from now until 12th January 2009.

Full details can be found here.

And please remember despite the name being an NCIS term the community is NOT an NCIS specific one, it is open to all fandoms and all pairings - and the people do not have to be 40+ in canon, only in the story.

Argh!!!

I put the posts together yesterday and before I posted it I sat thinking 'I need to do something before I post this', but I couldn't think what.

*Sighs*

Duly added - thank you for the swift catch.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 5th January 2009 11:31 (UTC) (Link)
You are welcome.

*hugs*

It's easy to do. I do it all the time with weekly...

And now pimped in my LJ. I snafffled your text and tweeked it a little.

And I get to use this icon again!

*Hugs back*

And that is a lot of hard work.

So I've seen - I like your tweaking.

Ah, yes . . . I kind of 'ditched' mine when trying to find space, I might have to dig it out again.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 5th January 2009 21:19 (UTC) (Link)
*hugs back to you*

Yes it is. It all blurs together after awhile.

Awww why thank you.

Awee poor thing. Still the space got filled up nicely.

*And to you*

You're a star to take it all on and do such a grand job. I imagine it does.

YW

I know. I know. And they did, yes, but . . .

*and back*

Nah just slightly insane ;-)

:-)

I know what you mean.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th January 2009 14:14 (UTC) (Link)
*And more*

But who wants to be sane, anyway?

I thought you might.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 7th January 2009 14:16 (UTC) (Link)
*more back*

Misguided people ;-)

:-) Always nice.
nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 7th January 2009 15:07 (UTC) (Link)
*And more*

Indeed!

Oh, yes.
aingeal8c From: aingeal8c Date: 7th January 2009 22:56 (UTC) (Link)
*more to you*

Oh yes.

:-)

Eeep, badly comprehending brain kinda missed the "each half" part for the rules! Oh dear, some of my prompts need revising - namely the Ducky/Abby ones!

*flails* Pauley Perette is 39? Oh my goodness, I hope I can look half as good as she does in ten years! What is it about NCIS actors and them looking far younger than their years? I always assumed she was in her twenties in canon and IRL.

nakeisha From: nakeisha Date: 6th January 2009 11:46 (UTC) (Link)
Is she???

Wow. I didn't know that.

Very true indeed they do.

I reckoned late 20s in canon now, i.e. mid-20s when started. I hadn't given her actual age any real thought but from a couple of pics that didn't really seem to do her justice, I thought maybe early 30s - but not 39!

Of course her hair style helps a lot on the show. It's amazing what difference a woman's hair style can make to them.

The stories can be set in the future - as will be the case with most of the pairings. From a quick glance at the list thus far only G/D and G/F fit the 'over 40 in canon'. So . . .
