Title: Just One Question
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi
Pairing/Characters: Colby Granger, Gary Walker (implied Colby/OFC-Callie Walker)
Rating: PG-13 (language)
Length: 2096
Why I'm reccing this fic: This fic is written in a universe where Colby and Callie have been high school sweethearts; a universe where I have so much fun. This particular piece is a conversation between Gary Walker (Callie's dad) and Colby. I'm most proud of it because this was one of the first times I could actually hear the characters voices as I wrote and I think that comes across in the fic. I also enjoyed writing the pre-series look back at Colby's high school and solider days. :)

Pairing/Characters: Ian Edgerton/Nikki Betancourt
Rating: R (adult situations)
Length: 300 x 4
Why I'm reccing this fic: This was a drabble series I wrote after seeing some truly gorgeous pictures of Sophina Brown. Ian/Nikki is my favorite canon pairing and so writing a little fic to keep the long distance relationship interesting was a real treat.

Pairing/Characters: Charlie Eppes, Patrick Jane (The Mentalist, Numb3rs Crossover)
Rating: PG
Why I'm reccing this fic: Charlie doesn't believe in psychics. It's a good thing Patrick Jane isn't one. This piece was my very first (and only) crossover fic. This was also the first time I'd written Patrick Jane and only the second time I'd written Charlie Eppes. You can imagine how terrifying and exhilarating that experience was. As such, this is a fic I'm really glad to have written.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] castalie
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie
Rating: NC17
Length: ~3876 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: Because it’s a perfect example of how the stress of keeping their relationship a secret could affect Don. And it’s hot. *g*
A brief excerpt: It was in cases like this that he felt claustrophobic. Because loving Charlie... sometimes it made him hurt. It was painful and difficult - while at the same time, it seemed to be the easiest thing in the world.

Title: All the Unworkable Workings [tag to 2.12 The OG]
Author: [livejournal.com profile] mojokid
Pairing/Characters: Don, Charlie
Rating: PG
Length: ~1797 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: A lovely glimpse of the brothers Eppes.
A brief excerpt: Don shakes his head and shuts his eyes for a moment. When he opens them, they’ve cleared, and he gives Charlie a half-smile that changes his whole face, makes him look like he’s only five years older again, except Charlie can still see the dead note of exhaustion in the slump of his shoulders.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] dsudis
Pairing/Characters: Don/Charlie
Rating: PG13
Length: ~1106 words
Why I'm reccing this fic: A sweet, fun moment between the brothers.
A brief excerpt: Charlie eased back a little, pulling gently away from Don's grip, leaning against the bag of clubs. He smelled leather and dust and Don and freshly-mowed grass, and his brain felt half lulled to sleep; he no longer had the slightest interest in the chalkboards he could see over Don's shoulder.

Length: 854
Why I'm reccing this fic: I love Numb3rs and I love The Mentalist. Imagining an interaction between Charlie and Patrick was just something that I couldn't pass up. I think that [livejournal.com profile] mustangcandi captured both characters and brought them to life in a conversation that I think you'll agree would most certainly take place if these two encountered one another. Do yourself a favor and have a read. : ) Enjoy!!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Why I'm reccing this fic: This story really reveals to me the joy of a long-fic. It might have taken a year to complete, but there was always pleasure in reading a nice long update, even if it was once a month. Case-related which holds your interest from the beginning, and centered on Don. What more could you want?

Why I'm reccing this fic: Very nice Don angst written from Charlie's POV. Set season 3, and revolving around a case, we get to see some of Don's demons through Charlie eyes, especially good 'cause Season 3 Don was very dark.

Why I'm reccing this vid:  This piece from AvenueQ - where one character tells another that it's okay if he was gay - is put to perfect scenes of Don and Charlie so that Don is telling Charlie it's okay if he was gay.  My favorite part is the flash of Don's girlfriends to "but I'm not gay."  Funny!

Since angst fic is my absolute favorite type of fic, this rec possed quite a challenge for me to choose only three. Therefore I had to set some parameters:
1) I am not re-reccing anything as almost everything I've recced already is angst
2) Since there is so little cross-posting between FF.N and LJ, I decided to go for all FF.N fics as most people who will view this are LJers. So hopefully this will introduce you to some new fic.

Title: Time to Kill
Author: Zubeneschamali
Pairing/Characters: Don, Benny Natale
Rating: T
Length: 8,675 words (2 chapters)
Summary: What if there was another reason for Benny Natale to hang around L.A. after killing Leah Wexford — like getting revenge on the FBI agent who thwarted him five years ago in Albuquerque?
Note: AU for In Security.
Why I'm reccing this fic: It's a great angst fic and unique from most others due to its unusual point of view. The entire fic is told from Natale's pov from beginning to end. Part of the reason I like this fic so much is because the thought of Benny going after Don crossed my mind during the episode when we learned Benny was staying in LA and I was really hoping he'd try something along these lines. Plus I love the idea of Don having to drive himself away from help so that Benny can exact his revenge.

Title: Sympathy for the Devil
Author: DreamBrother
Pairing/Characters: Don
Rating: T
Length: 1,369 words
Summary: Pleased to meet you, hope you guess my name, but what’s puzzling you is the nature of my game.
Note: Dark fic!
Why I'm reccing this fic: Beyond the fact that it is a great Don angst fic? Well, the situation Don finds himself in is different from what would be expected. Instead of Charlie being used to get to Don, Don is targetted to get to Charlie who has been whisked to safety along with Alan, leaving Don as the only way to find him. The only problem? Getting Don to actually talk and give them what they want to know.

Sympathy for the Devil

Title: Night Thoughts
Author: shaolingrrl
Pairing/Characters: Charlie, Don
Rating: T
Length: 1,838 words
Summary: What if Don did not start therapy?
Note: Dark fic!
Why I'm reccing this fic: Charlie comes in from the garage past midnight to find his brother sitting alone in the dark... with his gun. Great little ficlet showing what might have happened to Don without Bradford's help. Dark and angst, a brilliant combination in my opinion, especially when it is poor Don at the center of it.

Title: Drift
Author: Merry
Pairing: Don, Charlie
Rating: G
Length: 36 KB
Why I'm reccing this fic:

Hi, I'm new here, but not to Numb3rs. I've watched and loved it since the pilot. I've been browsing through the Memories section and have enjoyed myself hugely. *g* Since this is my first Open Rec Week I'd like to offer this Rec as a token of appreciation.

Drift, by Merry is a wonderful look at Don and Charlie. It's a quiet, lush little slice of life that just gets me every time I read it. It's also the only Numb3rs story she has written, and I think that needs to change. Maybe if enough of us send her feedback, she'll write some more.

Pairing/Characters: Charlie, Sam
Rating: G
Length: 7000+ words
Why I'm reccing this fic: This is a well written fic by an author who loves and understands "Numb3rs" and "Quantum Leap"

Leaptad has written a few very nice Numb3rs fics. But I just love her Numb3rs/Quantum Leap crossover. Here's the blurb she posted describing the fic: "Numb3rsQuantum Leap crossover. Sam leaps into Charlie to save a man who was innocently convicted of a crime, but he discovers that he's been leaping much longer than he thought."
