Hey, folks! I was feeling a bit nostalgic about Numb3rs and the Numb3rs fandom, and I realized that it has been 10 years since Numb3rs premiered on January 23, 2005.

Just C&P the form from the textbox into a comment to this post. You are also welcome (and encouraged) to post your answers in your own journal. (And maybe send some more people our way.)

Hi All Dear Numb3rs Lovers!

I got into Numb3rs fandom after the S3 Janus List, when, to avoid a torturous long summer, I started looking for spoilers. During my search, I discovered great sites like savecolby, numb3rs_news, numb3rs100 , and since they are my favorite places to hang out. You can find there great authors and great works. I will mention a few of them, but there are many more: spikedluv, emmademarais, julietm, ladygray99, mustangcandi, rubynye, swingandswirl, t_vo0810.

My first rec is The Great Work of TheOriginalSpy.

With her objective, subjective and most of all humorous recaps, Spy highlighted our Numb3rs eppesodes.
You can access her wonderful recaps on this site:

Enjoy!

1. What got you into the Numb3rs fandom? I don't remember being really participatory until Season 3, the Janus List... and I was so outraged by the thought that Colby could be a mole, that I sought comfort in the LJ fandom - in particular [livejournal.com profile] savecolby, which led me to many other wonderful communities.
2. What is your favorite Numb3rs episode, and why? I have to say Rampage (2.21). It was Colby centric, we got some back story, we saw Charlie finally realizing the reality of what could happen working with the FBI and having to work through that stress, we had Megan and David playing important roles, David and Colby moments. It was a smart episode. And I always loved those.
3. Who is your favorite Numb3rs character, and why? Colby, because he's delicious. Although he wasn't utilized to his full potential, he was also very smart, funny, and the way he played off of David brought some life into the show. I also really loved Nikki. Again, beautiful, but she was also quick-witted, and strong, with my kind of sense of humor. But alas, I don't think she was fully utilized either.
4. Who is your favorite character/pairing to write/graphic/vid? Ian/Nikki
5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Numb3rs’? (Can be fic, artist, community, etc) Friendships that I still have because of the show, many people I've met in person now, all over the world.
6. Who is your favorite Numb3rs author/artist/vidder? Lord, how am I supposed to pick??? I have to give love to pretty much everyone who wrote in the fandom because they all brought something more to the show, to my fandom development, to me as a person.
7. What is your go-to Numb3rs fic/art/vid? The Jet Black Series (http://emmademarais.livejournal.com/2009/11/02/) by [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais... Ian/Nikki porn? Yes, please.
8. Where is your favorite Numb3rs place to hang out? (Community, archive, etc) SaveColby was for the longest time. I miss it. Maybe the mod should do something about that. *looks in mirror
9. What currently active author/artist/vidder/community/etc should we pay attention to? (Can be on LJ, DW, Tumblr, etc) EppesandCo on Tumblr posts lovely gif sets from time to time that always make me smile.
10. Anything else you want to share about the Numb3rs fandom, then or now. I miss the fandom, we still exist but it's quiet. In its hay day, it was one of the nicest places to play (it wasn't without its issues but compared to other fandoms, those issues seemed pretty mild.) I miss the show. I just miss Numb3rs all the way around.

1. What got you into the Numb3rs fandom? 2008 Rounds of Kink prompt about Charlie/Ian I enjoyed the show and saw a lot of potential for darker fics that I felt like writing.
2. What is your favorite Numb3rs episode, and why? Uncertainty Principle. I write a lot of Don/Charlie and their relationship is really laid out in this ep.
3. Who is your favorite Numb3rs character, and why? Charlie. He has such an interesting and unique mind, could go to some very dark places or completely opposite. I read a lot of N3 fic that showed Charlie as naive and innocent and I wanted to explore other possibilities.
4. Who is your favorite character/pairing to write/graphic/vid? Don/Charlie, though I've tried most m/m pairings.
5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Numb3rs’? (Can be fic, artist, community, etc) My fanfic and all my unwritten stories. :)
6. Who is your favorite Numb3rs author/artist/vidder? By the time I really got into it in 2011, there weren't many people writing N3 fanfic anymore, so my favorites are LadyGray, Neena and anyone else still writing!
7. What is your go-to Numb3rs fic/art/vid? My own, how pathetic is that!
8. Where is your favorite Numb3rs place to hang out? (Community, archive, etc) numb3rs_news
9. What currently active author/artist/vidder/community/etc should we pay attention to? (Can be on LJ, DW, Tumblr, etc) Not sure, I'd love to hear about any!
10. Anything else you want to share about the Numb3rs fandom, then or now. I just wish the show was still on and people were still writing/vidding/talking about it. There was so much more potential for the show that was unexplored.

1. What got you into the Numb3rs fandom? I honestly cannot remember. I think I just read about it, and it sounded cool? I remember ordering the first season on DVD and being really excited about it.
2. What is your favorite Numb3rs episode, and why? I think Uncertainty Principle, because of the insight it gave us on Don and Charlie's relationship. Also Brutus - that's the one where Charlie and Colby work together, right? And Hardball, because of Oswald, one of my favorite guest roles on the show!
3. Who is your favorite Numb3rs character, and why? Charlie. Then Colby. Then Meghan.
4. Who is your favorite character/pairing to write/graphic/vid? I think my biggest regret about N3 fandom is that when I was really active in the fandom, my English wasn't good enough yet to write decent fic. I kind of keep hoping that I'll be assigned a N3 fic for Not Prime Time or something these days, just so I have to revisit the canon and finally write something decent for this fandom. I did write a Charlie/Oswald fic once that was fun to write, hehe. I was always kind of sad that there wasn't more fic for those two.
5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Numb3rs’? (Can be fic, artist, community, etc)I think I'd have to say [livejournal.com profile] spikedluv, actually. And the number Pi, for some reason :)
6. Who is your favorite Numb3rs author/artist/vidder? Oh man, that really depended a lot on my mood and what pairing I was most interested in that week ... a lot of brilliant writers in that fandom, though, that's for sure!
7. What is your go-to Numb3rs fic/art/vid?Hmmm, maybe Calculus is Easy (http://archiveofourown.org/works/928755) by Frostfire? Again, also depends a little on my mood.
8. Where is your favorite Numb3rs place to hang out? (Community, archive, etc)I think it probably used to be [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_slash, but definitely LJ in general.
9. What currently active author/artist/vidder/community/etc should we pay attention to? (Can be on LJ, DW, Tumblr, etc)Frankly, I haven't been involved in N3 for so long, I don't even know :(
10. Anything else you want to share about the Numb3rs fandom, then or now.It's one of the earlier fandoms I got into on LJ when everyone was still on LJ, and it was such a great show - whenever I go back to it, I'm reminded that it's really just all around a good show - wonderful dynamic between the characters, interesting non-conventional relationships, interesting cases ... yeah, I totally feel super nostalgic just thinking about it. *sigh*

So very late with this.

1. What got you into the Numb3rs fandom? Rob Morrow. Was a big Northern Exposure fan but I couldn't picture nerdy little Doctor Fleishman playing an FBI agent. I had to check it out.
2. What is your favorite Numb3rs episode, and why? One Hour. I have a thing for ticking clock and bottle episodes. This is two in one. The team is on a ticking clock while Don is in therapy the entire episode.
3. Who is your favorite Numb3rs character, and why? I love Charlie because he's a giant nerd but he's not portrayed as being "broken" the way a lot of smart characters on TV are. He's social, friendly, he doesn't look down on people who don't understand him instead he puts more effort into communicating with them. He's even got moves with the ladies.
4. Who is your favorite character/pairing to write/graphic/vid? I love Charlie/Ian but Charlie/Colby is a close second. The whole Jock/Nerd thing.
5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Numb3rs’? (Can be fic, artist, community, etc) The whole fandom here on lj
6. Who is your favorite Numb3rs author/artist/vidder? Really, I have to chose one? Emma, Irena, Tam are just my top three.
7. What is your go-to Numb3rs fic/art/vid? I always like going back through [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_slash whenever I can.
8. Where is your favorite Numb3rs place to hang out? (Community, archive, etc) While I haven't been able to go in ages slashchat is still big in my heart.
9. What currently active author/artist/vidder/community/etc should we pay attention to? (Can be on LJ, DW, Tumblr, etc) The fandom has slowed down so much. Following the numb3rs tag on ao3 and numb3rs_news here is the best place for fic. There are some people just doing major screen grabs on tumblr.
10. Anything else you want to share about the Numb3rs fandom, then or now. Just that you were my first good fandom after my previous one burned me hard.
