The Boat in Gibbs' Basement Challenge
I want to know how he gets the boat out of the basement...
+ Open to all members.
+ Will be annual (if this changes, I'll let y'all know).
Very Simple: Write the best story you can that reveals a reasonable, creative and/or funny way that the boat comes out of the basement. No matter how outlandish, make it believable. Must obey the rules of at least one of the universes you include. Needless to say, stories that do not address the boat escaping the basement will not qualify.
Characters: Any NCIS, any crossover, though points for crossovers I like (see my author board for hints)
Length: Story must be at least 500 words long. It can be any length, but I'm preferring a story under 5,000 words as I have to read each one. If you do write a longer story, I will read it, but remember the premise is rather simple.
Crossover: Can be a crossover. In fact, if it's a crossover, it will make me exceedingly happy.
Pairing: irrelevant. Slash or Het is fine, however, if it is germane to the story.
Rating: irrelevant. If it's NC-17 please label as such. If there need to be warnings, please make sure they're there. Sex is fine, if it is germane to the story.
Spelling, Grammar and Style: If you don't take time to proofread your story, I won't bother to take time to read it carefully. I don't expect an academic paper or a masterpiece, just show you care.
Completeness: Only complete stories will be eligible, so if you write a longer story and you're not done by June 17, please enter it for next year.
Other challenges: I don't care if the story you enter is eligible for or entered into other challenges. That's between you and the other challengers.
DEADLINE: Deadline is June 17th of each year. I will try to remember to remind folk about it one month out. I'm not fond of extensions. There's always next year.
NOTE: Unless there are dozens of entries, I'll try to announce my winner within one week of the challenge date. June 17 is the last day YOU can enter the challenge.
