Lucky in Love Challenge
Have you ever noticed how none of our favorite fictional NCIS agents ever seem to have good luck with love? I have and I think it's high time they did.
Your challenge is to write a story about one of them getting lucky in love. It's not just a euphemism for getting someone in bed with them though if they love the person they're getting in bed with, that would work. Now, being lucky in love doesn't imply that it's all smooth sailing. After all, nothing has ever been easy for our favorite agents so why should this be any different?
Tell us a story about how they get to the point they feel lucky with their significant other. What goes well? What doesn't go well? What hurdles do they have to overcome? What determines how lucky they are? Show us the good, the bad and the ugly, but most of all, show us how lucky they are.
Romance does not have to be the focus. The bottom line is that I want our favorite characters to be happy in their love lives.
Characters: At least one of the main cast. (Even though he's not credited as main cast, Fornell has been with the show since the beginning so I consider him part of the main cast.) OCs are welcome as one of the pairing.
Pairing: Almost any, het or slash. (Only true exception is Ducky with one of the other main cast because that just squicks me out. Ducky with an OC not young enough to be his offspring would not squick me out.)
Rating: Any. Smut is fine if you want to write it. No violence worse than what we'd see on the show.
Seasons: 1 through 11. I really didn't like seasons 12 and 13 and I'm not watching 14.
Crossovers: Definitely yes for NCIS: New Orleans, NCIS: Los Angeles or Hawaii Five-O. If any others, ask first since I only watch a few other shows.
Series: Sure, just let me know ahead of time so I can read the rest and be caught up.
Length: At least 500, no maximum.
No major character deaths. No mpreg (just not into that).
Other challenges: Sure, as long as it's okay with the other challenge-issuer. Note: Cannot be combined with my Happily Ever After Challenge as I'm not sure I could judge fairly if I end up adoring one of the stories too much.
Note: No extensions will be given since I want the stories in time for Valentine's Day.
