Year in the Life Challenge by channeld

issued by sondheimmcgeek

Please check the NFA topic located here: for any updates to this challenge, or to ask any questions about it.


A lot can happen within one year: life, death, love, heartbreak, beginnings, endings, changes, marriages, divorces, friendships. This challenge is about how one or more NCIS character changes within the course of a year. It doesn't have to be a huge change, but there should be something that's different. And that is your challenge! You can use as many or as few characters as you wish and you can use whichever characters you wish. The story does not need to show every single day within the year of said character's life, thoguh if you'd like to, I'm not going to argue it  *realizes she just opened up the door to the possibility of a 365 chapter story*

All I'm looking for in the story is a change in at least one character. It could be from someone keeping his/her new years resolutions. It could be someone accepting a new job or someone moving into a new apartment. It could be something that only affects that one character or it could be something that affects the entire team!

And no, that is not a typo in the subject line! Due to the nature of this challenge and the knowledge that some people may want to go big on it (plus the fact that I like a nice gimmick with my challenge), I am giving you an entire year to write it! Here are the specifics:

Characters: Any character, so long as they've actually appeared on the show.

Genre: Anything but crack!fic (sorry!) and crossovers.

Rating: Any and all are accepted, just mark accordingly.

Pairings: All are allowed, though a pairing isn't necessary. If writing slash or femmeslash, please mark accordingly.

Seasons: I've seen every episode, so anything goes!

Word Min/Max: 1500 min, no max

Happy Writing!

Summary: Jenny is a high school kid living in DC with her father. One day she bumpes into a stranger with beautiful blue eyes that she can't forget. They meet again accidentally. What will happen ? It will a long year, specially for her. It is AU and pre-NCIS of course. I do stick with some characters from NCIS and some storylines, but not really.

Mainly Jenny and Gibbs story, but other characters make a brief appearance too.
