So, the Memories challenge has been open May/June/July. But because of the recent and unfortunate incidents with LJ and because your mod is just now getting her life back after completely turning it upside down June/July, I'm extending the challenge until the end of September as I am in all the communities I mod. (Selfishly? Maybe. I have things I want to write for the challenge darn it.)

A VERY big thank you to emmademarais for her fic A Fraction of a Second for this challenge. *spins and basks in its awesomeness.

If anyone else wants to play... the challenge theme is MEMORIES.

Writing fic? Take us back to when Ian and Nikki first met or the first time Ian asked her for a drink (or a baseball game as it were.) Put them further into the future and have them look back at how life has changed since that first moment. Let them reflect on favorite memories, as a couple or a relationship that didn't quite work out (for whatever reason.)

Want to make icons, videos, wallpapers? Show us your favorite Ian/Nikki moments (which I know there weren't nearly enough.) Piece together a story for us through moments from the show that helped us see the chemistry between these two gorgeous and intriguing characters. Pick your favorite memory from the two seasons we had Nikki and Ian coming to us on our TV screen every Friday night. Let us see!

To show some appreciation for the fandom, why not REC us some of your favorite Ian/Nikki fic? Got icons, videos, artists you just love? Tell us about them and show us their work! Bring back your favorite memories to this challenge so we can all remember what it was about this show that made it so freaking fantastic.

Things have been a little crazy for a lot of people but I hope we can still spread some love around the community and others by sharing the love for Ian/Nikki. The challenge is open until 11:59pm (wherever you are) on SEPTEMBER 30th. Please read our rules before posting and remember that each entry should include the tag "challenge" as well as any additional tags needed (e.g. fic: genre, wallpaper, video). Have fun!!

x-posted to n3teamchallenge for the Hot vs. Cold challenge. Prompt: Blood (Team Hot). If you squint, you can pretend this is also for the Memories challenge here but... here's hoping I can come up with something different for that. :)

Hey all. We're about half way through our challenge here at ian_nikki and I just wanted to post a reminder.

The challenge theme for the months of May/June/July is MEMORIES.

Writing fic? Take us back to when Ian and Nikki first met or the first time Ian asked her for a drink (or a baseball game as it were.) Put them further into the future and have them look back at how life has changed since that first moment.

Hey folks. I've not been around much lately but I'll admit I've been missing our show and the love we all had for it. As such, I know it's been a while since we've had a challenge here and I think it's time I fixed that.

ian_nikki was created 2 years ago this month and we opened our doors on the first of June so I think an anniversary celebration is in order. We celebrated our anniversary last year with a challenge themed "anniversary." This year to celebrate our show and to remember what we loved about it, I'm offering up the challenge of MEMORIES (as I've done or will do in my other communities.)

I know we didn't have a lot of time to get to know Ian and Nikki as a couple, but there was an undeniable chemistry there. Episodes like 6.08 - Ultimatum and the series finale left us with questions we wanted answers to... and here's your chance.

Bring back your favorite memories to this challenge so we can all remember what it was about this show that made it so freaking fantastic.

There are some other challenges happening this summer. To make sure every one has enough time to participate, I'm keeping this challenge open until 11:59pm (wherever you are) on JULY 31st. That's right - May, June, and July... think of your fondest memories of Ian/Nikki and Numb3rs and share the love. Please read our rules before posting and remember that each entry should include the tag "challenge" as well as any additional tags needed (e.g. fic: genre, wallpaper, video). Have fun!! (And who knows, maybe even your mod will come up with something. *smiles.)

NOTE: Unless there be vehement objection, I would also like to open this challenge (and possibly this community) up for Nikki fic & art. ian_edgerton is a lovely place for Ian here in LJ, but Nikki doesn't really have a place to call her own. Rather than open another community, I'd love to open the door for Nikki gen, het, or slash fic & art here. It's your community so you tell me. But if you'd like to show us your favorite Nikki moment without Ian for this challenge, I'm okay with it. :)

I know I've been a bit lax as a mod lately. I haven't forgotten this beloved community so near to my heart. I've just been overwhelmed with other things.

Anyway, this is just a note that I AM going to start some challenges in this community as well as my others next month (and this community may undergo a small change with your permission. More on that another time.)

For now, I thought I'd let you all know that numb3rs100 monthly pairing for the month of April 2011 is Ian/Nikki (and/or Nikki/Liz.) Show your love for our favorite pairing and drabble it up this month!

Need inspiration? N100 has over 300 prompts to choose from or you could also use any and all challenge prompts from this community (and consequently, you can use these challenges as inspiration for longer fic and we'd love to have you share it here!) Have fun!

I may be taking some mod-type liberties by doing this but since Nikki Betancourt (and/or Sophina Brown) has no community just for her (to my knowledge) and since numb3rswomen is no more... I thought I'd share these here.

These are my third and fourth attempts at a wallpaper. I'm very much still learning so suggestions and comments are welcome. :)
