I imported the community for archival purposes only; I don't want to lose the fanwork links here should anything happen to fandom on LJ. (Though the community is still technically open there hasn’t been any activity there for years.) If you're new to the fandom, please feel free to browse around.

Please comment here if you have any questions.

Thank you.

Numb3rs 10th Anniversary Fandom Appreciation & Rec Meme

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. And so a 10th Anniversary Fandom Appreciation & Rec Meme was born. *g* (Please note that everyone is welcome to participate in this meme, no matter when you found Numb3rs or how long you've been in the fandom!)

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.)

1. What got you into the Numb3rs fandom?
2. What is your favorite Numb3rs episode, and why?
3. Who is your favorite Numb3rs character, and why?
4. Who is your favorite character/pairing to write/graphic/vid?
5. What is the first thing that comes to mind when someone says ‘Numb3rs’? (Can be fic, artist, community, etc)
6. Who is your favorite Numb3rs author/artist/vidder?
7. What is your go-to Numb3rs fic/art/vid?
8. Where is your favorite Numb3rs place to hang out? (Community, archive, etc)
9. What currently active author/artist/vidder/community/etc should we pay attention to? (Can be on LJ, DW, Tumblr, etc)
10. Anything else you want to share about the Numb3rs fandom, then or now.

Admin: Themed Recs are out Open Rec’ing is In!

Numb3rs may have been cancelled, but hopefully the fandom will go on. To that end I’ve listened to your suggestions and will be making this an open, rec-as-you-go community instead of having themed recs.

The rules have been vastly simplified because of this *g* but please do give them a glance before you rec.

Rules:

General Community:

1. You must be a member to post, though not to comment.

2. This is a rec comm, not an announcement or pimping comm, so please do not rec your own work.

3. All posts will be memoried and tagged for ease of finding them later on.

4. If you can’t find the fic you’re looking for, check out [livejournal.com profile] numb3rsficfind.

Rec’ing:

5. You may rec anything Numb3rs-related -- Fan Fiction, Graphics, Music Videos, Websites, Episodes . . .

6. Any genre, pairing/character, or rating may be rec’d here, including RPF and crossovers.

7. Subject line: The names of the fic, vids, etc that you’re rec’ing, separated by commas.

8. Use the following format by copying and pasting it into your post. If you’re rec’ing a vid or an episode, tweak the code as needed.



9. If you’re making more than two recs in a single post, please place anything more than the two behind a cut.

(For future reference, the rules may also be found on the community profile.)

Thank you.

Admin: Looking for Fandom Input

No new theme this week; instead, a question. What would you like to see done with this community? I can’t believe that there aren’t any good fic, art or vids that people want to rec, so I can only guess that the theme format is not working for most people.

Would it be easier if this was a ‘rec what you want, when you want’ comm?

Does the Numb3rs fandom not need a rec comm at all?

Please share your ideas on how this rec comm can best serve the fandom!

Thank you.

Artist: Smilla02

[livejournal.com profile] smilla02 is actually not apart of our fandom in that she doesn't watch the show, but as my e-wife she does read my squee and rants quite a bit. She is an incredibly talented artist who has selflessly lent her talent to two new Numb3rs communities.

I am not an artist so I have no idea where to begin deconstructing her magic. She has an eye for color and texture that leaves me gasping for breath. And, she designs her graphics with very little raw material from Numb3rs (screencaps, etc.) so that her originality and attention to the smallest detail leave me speechless.

You can see her work [header, icon, profile banner] for [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_bigbang here and her work for [livejournal.com profile] numb3rs_podfic [header, icon, navigation button, profile banner] here.

[livejournal.com profile] smilla02 hosts her graphics at [livejournal.com profile] policromo.

New Theme: Introduction to Numb3rs: Artists

A day late and a dollar short, this week’s theme is: Introduction to Numb3rs: Artists

Who are the three artists you’d choose to show to someone new to Numb3rs, and why? Don’t worry if other folk have chosen some or all of the same artists, because we will probably all have our own reasons for including them, and your reason might be the one that tips the scale for someone! *g*

Author: Mustangcandi

[livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi has such a great writing style that you can easily get lost in her fic, whether it's a full-length or a drabble. She writes multiple pairings/characters and always keeps things interesting. Whether she's writing something action-packed, angst-ridden, or schmoopy, you are certain to find something that suits your fancy when it comes to her works.

You can check out her writing journal at [livejournal.com profile] candisquill. There are so many that I would recommend that I couldn't possibly begin to mention them all here, so hop on over and immerse yourself in the world of Numb3rs as brought to you by my fave author. : )

Author: StatsGrandma

StatsGrandma has been writing Numb3rs fic since 2006. She's written a few wonderful one-shots, but her "Their Days are Numb3red" epic, beginning with "The Life of Gram" is really a must-read. Stats is a biostatistics professor and she's one of the few authors I've read who really knows what Charlie, Amita and Larry are talking about! Her series has grown along its own path, and by now I would classify it as AU. But she really understands the characters, and her portrayal of their family life is truly amazing! She only posts at Fanrush, but I'm hearing rumors that she's setting up her own website where her fiction will continue into the future.

Here's a link to her master list at Fanrush: StatsGrandma's fic

Author: audrarose

I've been fortunate to share three fandoms with [livejournal.com profile] audrarose and even when I do not share a fandom with her, I still read all of her fan fiction because it's just that good. Unfortunately, she no longer writes Numb3rs fan fiction but she left more than a few gems with us – mostly Don/Charlie, but a bit of gen and other slash. Her writing has a distinct style that lends itself to angst but in a way that enhances its veristic qualities – it's never emo porn for the sake of emo.

[livejournal.com profile] audrarose keeps a master list as well as a Numb3rs fic tag. Enjoy.

Author: Dira Sudis (Dsudis)

[livejournal.com profile] dsudis has sadly moved on from the Numb3rs fandom, but while she was here she gifted us with a bunch of fantastic fic. Dira is one of the few authors whose grocery list I’d read because she’s just that awesome a writer. A lot of her fic is Don/Charlie, but she’s written other pairings, such as David/Colby, as well.

Author: Penguingal & Schnaucl

The writing team of [livejournal.com profile] penguingal and [livejournal.com profile] schnaucl have provided the fandom with some wonderful fic. They can be counted on to tell a great story, and among all the fic they’ve written you’ll find some angst, some romance, and the sex (whether sweet or rough) is always smokin’ hot! Their pairings vary widely and include Don/Charlie, Don/Ian, Charlie/Ian, Don/Charlie/Ian and Don/Charlie/Billy.

Their jointly written fic may be found at [livejournal.com profile] penguin_fics.
