Rec Your Own 2008

Boy, this feels weird! :) Here goes!

Title: Brother’s Keeper
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melissima
Pairing/Characters: Don and Charlie
Rating: G
Length: 300 words
Why I’m reccing this fic: This is my first fic featuring young Don and Charlie. It surprised me with its foreshadowing of the pilot decades before that watershed case.

A brief excerpt )

Brother’s Keeper

Title:Hollywood Undercover
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melissima
Pairing/Characters: Don/Billy
Rating: PG
Length: 200 words
Why I’m reccing this fic: This was one of those rare fic that sprang up in my mind like a brain-movie. All I had to do was write it down. Pretty! :P

Hollywood Undercover

Title: Therapy
Author: [livejournal.com profile] melissima
Pairing/Characters: Megan

Title: Always More Than Partners Chapters 1-3
Author: [livejournal.com profile] darkkevlar
Rating: R
Why I'm reccing this fic: A good Angsty piece between the boys as usual Don has guilt issues and lets his perceptions of things direct how he will choose.

A brief excerpt )

Always More than Partners

Title: Crash Into Me
Author: [livejournal.com profile] darkkevlar
Pairing/Characters: Don/Coop/Lia with Jeff Upchurch making an appearance
Rating: NC-17
Why I'm reccing this fic: Because it's filled with hot & dirty bathroom sex. I also like the playfulness of my OC, knowing what the boys were up too.
A brief excerpt )

Crash Into Me

Title:Belonging is not all that it's cracked up to be
Author: [livejournal.com profile] darkkevlar
Pairing/Characters: Don/Coop, Don/Lia, Coop/Don/Lia
Rating: NC-17
Why I'm reccing this fic:This is a fic that should have almost been written a long time ago when I first started the 3some verse. It covers a lot of emotion on Coop's part and Lia's since for the most part is told in Don's POV. This early fic is filed with a lot of raw emotion and shows the depth of how these two feel about Don Eppes, and what they do to have his love.

Title: Velvet Turtle
Author: [livejournal.com profile] elysium1996
Pairing/Characters: Charlie, Don
Rating: PG
Length: 804
Why I'm reccing this fic: I always enjoy writing brother or family moments and this is just another example of how I see the brothers. I like exploring how the brothers interact with each other and also how they perceioved each other.

A brief excerpt )

Velvet Turtle

Title: The Chronicler
Author: [livejournal.com profile] elysium1996
Pairing/Characters: Don, Charlie(s)
Rating: PG13
Why I'm reccing this fic: This is completely different from what I usually write, an AU/Crack piece. This was a lot of fun to write and after 2 years I again found my ending. If you like something a bit different with some snark, I think you will enjoy.

A brief excerpt )

The Chronicler

Title: Ghost Woman
Author:[livejournal.com profile] elysium1996
Pairing/Characters:Don/OFC-Elle, + Whole Cast
Rating: PG13
Length:55+ Epilogue 81,801 K
Why I'm reccing this fic: This fic is one of my first. I have spent the last 2 1/2 years living in this world. I enjoyed writing and telling this tale and i was lucky I had a lot of people
who joined me on that ride. I was also very lucky to find 3 special an talented people who edited this for me. And now, 2 1/2 years later, I finally got my ending.

Title: A Series of Unfortunate Events 1 - 6
Author: ALF
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie
Rating: PG13
Summary: Crack Mpreg Apocafic
Word Count: 6 x 100
Why I'm rec'ing this fic: There just isn't enough crack mpreg apocafic in the universe *g* Especially where Don is the pregnant one *eg*

A Series of Unfortunate Events 1 - 6

Title: Numbers Running
Author: ALF
Pairing: Don/Charlie
Rating: NC17
Word Count: 5383 (!)
Summary: Don and Charlie go hunting
Why I'm rec'ing this fic: For me, this is epic length. I rarely have the time to write anything over 1000 words these days. I'm really proud of it, because it's AU, kinda case-related and it just didn't get enough love and attention first time around. Plus, I do have a thing for future!fic *g*

Numbers Running

Title: On the Town
Author: ALF
Pairing: Liz Warner/Nikki Betancourt
Word Count: 300
Rating: R
Spoilers: Scan Man
Why I'm rec'ing this fic: There can never be enough femslash in the world. Plus, two smoking hot women together. And it was the first fic with this pairing in the fandom, which I'm proud of!

Title: Twenty Random Facts About Colby Granger
Author: Tammy aka [livejournal.com profile] quirky_circe
Pairing/Characters: Colby/Charlie, cameos from the rest
Rating: PG
Length: 1836
Why I'm reccing this fic: I love taking characters that seem to be little more than stereotypes and putting my own spin on them. Plus this format allows me the freedom to give the reader brief glimpses of Colby's life and character without the impediment of a longer story- windows into a complete universe, as it were.

A brief excerpt )

Twenty Random Facts About Colby Granger

Title: Ever Ever After
Author: Tammy aka [Bad username or site: quirky_circe" @ livejournal.com]
Pairing/Characters: Charlie/Colby/Amita
Rating: PG
Length: 1808 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: Because sometimes, you just wanna have happily ever after. I figured that with all the whumping I put my poor Colby!muse through, he deserves at least one purely fluffy fic.

A brief excerpt )

Ever Ever After

Title: A Soldier's Christmas
Author: Tammy aka [livejournal.com profile] quirky_circe
Pairing/Characters: Colby
Rating: PG
Length: 4x100
Why I'm reccing this fic: I think [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais said it best: I love the idea of his sacrifice juxtaposed against the overindulgence of the season as we see it.. That, and I don't know anyone more deserving of a Christmas miracle than the brave men and women who serve, whether Indian, American, or anything else. *salutes*

A Soldier's Christmas
owl: Don towing Charlie out of harm's way.  (Charlie&Don)
[personal profile] owl
For the Rec Your Own 2008 Challenge

Title: Still and Always
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thewhiteowl
Pairing/Characters: Don, Charlie
Rating: PG
Length: 3157
Spoilers: Up to 4.18

Why I'm reccing this: I wrote three epilogue fics/fix-its for When Worlds Collide over the summer, and I had difficulty deciding on which one I wanted. I think that Not Academic might be a technically better fic, but this is my own favourite. Because it has the boys fighting and making up, and family history and brother stuff, and also pizza.


Title: England
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thewhiteowl
Pairing/Characters: Charlie
Rating: G
Length: 1000 words
Spoilers: 2.18 (All's Fair)

Why I'm reccing this:
Charlie at Cambridge. First impressions, climate statistics, first love and family. I'm very fond of this fic, because it's my idea of Charlie, stripped down to the essence. Plus, I got to write about Cambridge.


Title: An Objective Approach
Author: [livejournal.com profile] thewhiteowl
Pairing/Characters: Charlie/Amita
Rating: 15+
Length: 2400 words
Spoilers: Up to 3.09, Waste Not

Why I'm reccing this:
I wrote het! I like the idea of Amita, and Charlie/Amita, even though the execution occasionally leaves something to be desired. I wanted to try and get into Amita's head and see her perspective on their relationship, and to capture that geeks-in-love vibe that they have.

My OTP suffered this year at the hands of the writers, and so I was forced to spread my wings. I wrote a bunch of new (to me) pairings, and even a couple threesomes! Here are some of my own personal favorites:

Title: Who’s Hunting Who
Author: Spikedluv
Pairing/Characters: Coop/Edgerton
Rating: NC17
Length: 2841 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: I was thrilled when Leda_speaks wrote her Coop/Edgerton fic, Falls Away, the first of this pairing I’d ever read, because I’d been imagining what would happen the first time these two alpha males came face to face. So then, of course, I had to try writing them myself. *g*
A brief excerpt: What he got was Ian fucking Edgerton, who just “happened to be in the area”, and was “our best tracker”. Just thinking about Edgerton made Billy wish he could have something stiffer with his coffee. After fifteen years with the Bureau you’d think he might have run into Edgerton, but they’d managed to miss each other up til now. He’d heard about him, though. The sniper legend from Afghanistan, fifth best shot in the world, best tracker the Bureau had, bastard son of Clint Eastwood and Yoda . . . . Yeah, Billy had heard it all, and he was not interested in meeting up with the Bureau’s darling.

Who’s Hunting Who

Title: Worth It
Author: Spikedluv
Pairing/Characters: David/Colby
Rating: NC17
Length: 2462 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: David/Colby is one of my favorite pairings that doesn’t get enough loving, even from me. I wrote a couple David/Colby stories, but I think this is my favorite of them. It takes place after Chinese Box, when things come to a head and they’re forced to clear the air.
A brief excerpt: David held up one hand, sorry that he’d gone there and opened that can of worms. “No, man, I get it; what happens undercover, stays undercover.”

Okay, so maybe he was a little bitter.

“David, that’s not . . . . When I came back, I mean, after you started talking to me again, you never said anything.”

“What was I supposed to say? Hey, Colby, were you just sleeping with me so you could find out if I was a spy? Maybe I didn’t really want to know the answer to that, huh?”

Worth It

Title: Cat. Bag. Out. (Third in the Snowed In Series)
Author: Spikedluv
Pairing/Characters: Don/Colby
Rating: PG13
Length: 2838 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: I wrote a lot of fun (imo *g*) Don/Colby fic (like my shifter!Colby fic), but this one was totally self-indulgent, hitting all my own personal happy buttons. It was just a bonus that other people liked it, too. *g*
A brief excerpt: Before Don could answer, the kitchen door swung open and Colby stepped in. “Hey, I brought . . . .” He held up the basket of garlic bread, and then froze. “Uh, am I interrupting something?”

Alan recovered first. “Not at all, Colby. In fact, we were just talking about you.”

Alan took the basket out of Colby’s hand and set it on the island. As he transferred the garlic bread to a baggie, he said, “So, what are your intentions towards my son?”

Recc'ing for the "Rec Your Own Challenge 2008"...

Title: In Memory Of...
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi
Pairing/Characters: Colby (mention of FBI team, and Grangers from Idaho - OCs since we don't know much about Colby's family.)
Rating: PG (a couple curse words)
Length: 1,982
Spoilers: 3.24 The Janus List; early season 4, particularly 4.01 Trust Metric.
Why I'm reccing this fic: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] savecolby challenge of One Year Later and is one of the fic that I'm actually proud of (such a rare thing for writers, isn't it? haha.) Colby remembers a fallen soldier...

In Memory Of...

Title: Let the Bodies Hit the Floor (by Drowning Pool)
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi
Pairing/Characters: Colby
Rating: PG-13 (just to be safe)
Spoilers: Season 2 - 4 of Numb3rs
Why I'm reccing this video: I just learned how to make videos this year and this was a video that I had the most fun with... you can't go wrong with Action!Colby (even when he is the reluctant hero.) :)

Let the Bodies Hit the Floor

Title: Tick, Tick... Boom! (by The Hives)
Vidder: [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi
Pairing/Characters: Action!Colby and Action!David
Rating: PG-13 (just to be safe)
Spoilers: Season 2 - 4 of Numb3rs
Why I'm reccing this video: Colby and David: aka The Bomb Squad. A favorite video (mostly because it's got my two favorite boys in it) that didn't get a lot of attention.

Tick, Tick... Boom!
[identity profile] nyctophobia76.livejournal.com
Title:  Gratuitous Smut
Author[livejournal.com profile] nyctophobia76 
Pairing/Characters: Colby/Don
Rating: NC-17 Very minor BDSM, but talk of heavier stuff
Why I'm reccing this fic: This fic didn't get a lot of notice.  I wrote it as thank you porn for [livejournal.com profile] spikedluv , but it is one of my favorite fics because it goes into BDSM in a very real way.  I managed to get plot and (what I think is) really hot smut in there.  

Onward to the fic

 Title: Duty, Honor, Following Orders, Coercion: Which of These is Unlike the Others?
Author: [livejournal.com profile] nyctophobia76 
Pairing/Characters: Colby
Rating: NC-17
Length: 275
Why I'm reccing this fic: This drabble plagued me for a while, but I kept thinking that I shouldn't post it because it had a longer story attached.  Finally I decided 'Screw it' and I posted it.  The responses I got were amazing, and it really struck me how much a fic could affect other people, not just myself.  Gotta add the non-con warning in here too.

Team Angst "Fresh Air"
Title: Fresh Air
Author: jlm110108
Pairing/Characters: Charlie Eppes, Don Eppes, Alan Eppes, Margaret Eppes
Rating/Category: PG/Gen
Spoilers: Episode "Money for Nothing"
Summary: Alan takes Don & his friends on a campout to celebrate Don's 13th birthday.

Why I'm reccing this fic: This was an interesting challenge. I like happily ever after endings, so it's hard for me to write angst. I enjoyed exploring the ill-fated camping trip Don and Charlie discussed in their session with Dr. Bradford in the episode "Money for Nothing."

Fresh Air

Title: What Not to Wear
Author: jlm110108
Characters: Charlie Eppes, Amita Ramanujan, Don Eppes
Spoilers: None
Summary: Crossover with "What not to Wear." Charlie meets Stacy & Clinton and lives to tell the tale.

Why I'm reccing this fic: It's fun. I enjoy doing crossovers, and while I love Charlie like a son, his wardrobe REALLY needs help. This is wish fulfillment for everyone who is tired of the droopy ties and untucked shirts.

What Not To Wear

Title: Is Charlie Smarter than a Fifth Grader?
Author: jlm110108
Characters: Charlie Eppes & ensemble
Spoilers: None
Summary: Crossover with "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader?" Charlie's a genius, but can he compete with fifth graders?

Why I'm reccing this fic: It's fun. Jelsemium challenged us to write a crossover with a game show, and this one seemed perfect. The research was fun -- watching episode after episode of "Are You Smarter than a Fifth Grader" and, of course, Numb3rs.

Is Charlie Smarter Than a Fifth Grader?
[identity profile] 1trackmind.livejournal.com
Title: Faithful Infidelity
Author: [livejournal.com profile] schnaucl
Pairing/Characters: (Don/charlie)
Rating: FRT
Length: 1069 Words
Why I'm reccing this fic: This was my attempt to deal with Don's canonical infidelity and Charlie's canonical insecurity. It's a much bleaker picture of their relationship than I normally have but in some ways I think it's a more realistic one.

A brief excerpt )

Faithful Infidelity

Title: Adrenaline Response
Author: [livejournal.com profile] schnaucl
Pairing/Characters: (Ian/Billy)
Rating: FRM
Length: 1021
Why I'm reccing this fic: This isn't a pairing I usually write but I think the story turned out pretty hot and sexy.

A brief excerpt )

Adrenline Response

Title: Cop & Robber
Author: [livejournal.com profile] schnaucl
Pairing/Characters: (Charlie, Billy)
Rating: PG
Length: 302
Why I'm reccing this fic: I really like this idea and I keep thinking about fleshing it out into a full story.

Rec Your Own 2008

This is an interesting idea, letting authors point out fic that didn't get enough attention in 2008. (Thanks, Spiked!) I have a really bad habit of posting a ton of great fic in December to get it out before the year ends, totally missing the fact that almost nobody's online reading fic during the holidays. /headdesk/ So here's three (it was tough to choose!) out of a bunch of my December fic people might have missed while out having fun.

Note: For people looking for ideas for Numb3rs Awards fic to nominate, please check out the Master List of Master Lists (Always found on 1/1). This year people are adding links to the End of Year fic memes which often list which fic they think were best/their favorites, which is a great place to shop for fic to read and nominate.

Title: Safe Harbor
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais
Pairing/Characters: Charlie/Billy
Rating: PG13
Length: 16K (Yes! It's a long one!)
Why I'm reccing this fic: I wrote it for my slashwife's birthday in February, but it languished in beta/rewrites so long I barely got it out same year. I feel bad that few people saw her present and IMHO it's very good if you like slow building slash relationships (like A Shift in the Continuum), H/C and casefic.

A brief excerpt )

Safe Harbor Part 1
Safe Harbor Part 2

Title: Addiction
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie
Rating: NC17
Length: 23K (A *really* long one!)
Why I'm reccing this fic: I didn't publish any Don/Charlie pretty much in the first half of 2008 so I made up for it with this super long shamefic with boatloads of angst and porn. It's all flavors of wrong, but I miss that from 2005. ;-) Unfortunately it got lost posted in December so this goes out to the cestficcers: I have not forsaken you! LOL

A brief excerpt )

Addiction Part 1
Addiction Part 2
Addiction Part 3

Title: Turnabout (Last Call Series)
Author: [livejournal.com profile] emmademarais
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie
Rating: NC17
Length: 4K
Why I'm reccing this fic: Because so many people kept asking for the next installment in the Last Call Universe and I kept flailing over it. I finally got it out in December, so if you liked the series, this fic opens it up into a whole new direction that I'll be writing in 2009. And yeah, more Don/Charlie because I'm behind on that ship. ;-)

Title: Don't Wanna Waste Another Day
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mercilynn
Pairing/Characters: Don/Coop. (Colby, Charlie, Alan, Millie, Megan and Larry mentioned.)
Rating: PG
Length: 853 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: This was written for the [livejournal.com profile] eppes_slash lyric challenge in April and was hands down one of my favorite slash pieces that I wrote this year.

A brief excerpt )

Don't Wanna Waste Another Day

Title: Spend the Night
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mercilynn
Pairing/Characters: Don/Megan
Rating: PG
Length: 793 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: This fic is actually a part of a series, the prequel to Love and Friendship and Love Will Keep You Up All Night but out of the three, I think it's the best one, showing their first steps to getting together.

A brief excerpt )

Spend the Night

Title: Falling for You
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mercilynn
Pairing/Characters: Megan/Don
Rating: G
Length: 3 minutes 45 seconds
Why I'm reccing this vid: There's not enough Don/Megan love out there. Plus, out of the two vids that I've done, this one's my favorite. And. NSYNC. Yes. It's all schmoopy goodness. *g*

That’s it for the Charlie Eppes Challenge.

This week’s theme is: Rec Your Own 2008

Yep, we’re doing something a little bit different this week. Numb3rs Awards will be opening nominations soon, and I thought this would give people a chance to pimp their own fic, graphics, music vids . . . Whether it’s something you’re particularly proud of because you took a chance you wouldn’t normally have done, or whether you think it’s the best fic/graphic/vid you’ve ever created in your history of fandom, or whether you think it’s something that might have flown under the radar and should get a second look, go ahead and rec three of your top/favorite/underrated fic/graphics/vids of 2008.

You have until midnight (wherever you are *g*) Sunday, January 25 to post your recs here!

Remember that all types of recs are welcome here, whether gen, het or slash, [as are all genres, from angst to romance to case-related]. If you're unsure how to structure your recs, please check out the rules on the community profile.

Please comment to this post with any ideas you have for future challenges or if you’d like to sign up for a week of your very own.

Have fun, and rec away!

ETA: This is not just for fic, so I've edited the language above to clarify that.
