Since LJ has deleted and purged at least one comm (ds_match) that's had no activity for some time even though there are (were) many posts it, I'm taking the precaution of making insurance posts in some of the comms I moderate. Apologies for the spam.

Now that April is over, we are in May. So I present to you the May Amnesty Challenges:

Resolutions Challenge
t's the New Year, and with every New Year comes New Year's resolutions. Thus, I give you the Resolutions Challenge. It can be as simple as a New Year's resolution: Tony resolves to work out more. McGee resolves to write a sequel to his book. Abby resolves to drink less caffeine (contributed by skripka). Resolution to solve a case, to finish the job...to tell someone how you feel (or not). Go forth and resolve to write!

Original Characters Challenge
There's a whole world of people who interact with our regular cast of characters, and never appear on the show. Your story must significantly feature at least one of these people.

It could be a romantic relationship (past, present, or future). A teacher. A relative. A neighbor. It could be someone they interact with while working on a case. It could be someone observing one or more of our characters from the outside, not knowing what they do for a living. Gibbs' tax preparer, dealing with three alimonies. The guy who details Tony's car, or the dry cleaner who wonders why Kate's clothes have so many bloodstains. Abby's tattoo artist. The first person Ziva killed; the first corpse Ducky ever autopsied. Tell us about them.

Secrets and Lies Challenge
What is that one thing the characters don't want anyone else to know about them? It doesn't have to be something horrible; it could be something embarrassing or just something intensely private. Will they lie to protect their secret? Or maybe the lie becomes the secret. It could be a canonical secret--Gibbs's first wife and daughter were a secret for years, or the secret of who really killed Ari, or Tony's secret investigations for the Director--or you could make up a secret of your own for them.

Epistolary Challenge
We'll start with a definition: 1. contained in or carried on by letters: an epistolary friendship; 2. of, pertaining to, or consisting of letters.
So your challenge is to have a fic based around letters. Email is also acceptable. Have someone receive a letter. Have someone write a letter. Five Letters Tony Never Wrote. Abby's first love letter. Have a fic written as correspondence between two (or more) characters. Abby and McGee's email back and forth during a boring work day; Ziva's emails back to a friend at Mossad.

Self-Insertion ChallengeWrite yourself into an NCIS story. That's it. Your real self, in your real job or in your real home town or while you're on vacation, whatever you see fit. You can have a bit part, a walk-on role, or you can be a major character in the story. Maybe you're Gibbs' neighbor, wondering why you hear hammering coming from his house in the middle of the night. Maybe your kid brother went to high school with Abby. Maybe McGee used to date your third cousin Zelda (twice removed). Maybe your teenage kid walks Ducky's mother's dogs. You can be a crime victim, a perpetrator, a witness. A case could bring the team into contact with you through your job. It's up to you. But if you Mary Sue yourself as the romantic interest of one of the NCIS folks? We reserve the right to point and laugh. I'm just sayin'. ;-)

Amnesty is being granted for these challenges for the month of May. Click the challenge name to visit the original prompt entires.

Now, the APRIL FOOLS challenge is over.

The new challenge we bring you is the DECEPTION CHALLENGE. We've seen Tony and Ziva both deceive the team with their relationships. McGee about his book, and Ducky about his mother's death. What other ways or reasons would one of the team go out to intentionally deceive their friends. Or how about someone, a suspect maybe, deceiving them?




This challenge will be open for TWO weeks. Anticipated closing of challenge is Tuesday, May 10, 2011. Always remember, subjects to your post are to be formatted as: [Title] by [author], and attach appropriate tags. An author tag will be created for you by a moderator at their earliest convenience.
