Welcome to ian_nikki, a NUMB3RS community dedicated to the (now canon) pairing of Ian Edgerton and Nikki Betancourt. Fanart, fanfic, inquiries, etc. – as long as it’s Ian & Nikki, it’s welcome here!
1. No hotlinking images. That means to and from the site. Some of us pay for our bandwidth while others have bandwidth allowances. If you’re going to repost images, upload them to your own server or account.
2. No flaming. Don’t be rude to each other. Most people are open to constructive criticism, but don’t tear apart another member’s art, fic, vids, etc.
3. No spamming. This is an Ian/Nikki-centric community. It’s not a place for pimping your communities or contests. If you have a Numb3rs-related announcement you’d like to make, please refer to numb3rs_notice.
Posters found in violation of these rules will have their posts/accounts deleted.
The vast majority of posts to this community are organized in our memories. Keep this in mind when titling your posts – you’ll want something that tells the visitor exactly what s/he is clicking on. Specific details for fic and picspam to follow.
Video: Star Struck, Ian/Nikki
Fic: Two of a Kind (Ian/Nikki, NC-17)
Wallpaper: Gazes, Ian/Nikki
Need more help? Copy and paste from the text box and fill in your information for your post.
Please tag your posts.
Because this is an Ian/Nikki community, there are no pairing tags listed. However, if it becomes apparent that pairing tags are needed (such as threesomes involving Ian & Nikki as the main focus), these tags will be added.
All tags can be viewed here.
Please review the following for definitions of these categories and specific guidelines.
Banners, photo compilations, drawings, graphic manipulations (i.e. Photoshop).
ALL ART MUST GO BEHIND AN LJ-CUT.
Community challenges, responses to challenges, etc.
All challenge responses must follow the formatting for the respective medium (fic, video, icons, wallpaper, etc.)
Stories written about Ian and Nikki.
Because this is a het specific pairing, accepted genres include general (Ian and Nikki as friends), het (Ian/Nikki), and het/slash (Ian/Nikki/male or female character, canon or OC).
All ratings (G – NC-17) are welcome. The only rule is that Ian and Nikki MUST BE the central characters.

For easier posting, you can copy and paste from the text box below.
Feel free (even encouraged) to add Summary, Word Count, Author’s Notes, and Disclaimer [sidenote: you should have a disclaimer on the fic itself to avoid possible legal ramifications].
Ratings Info (as popularly accepted):
- G: General Audiences, acceptable for all readers (not to be confused with gen (a genre type), as gen fic can go up to an R rating).
- PG: Parental Guidance Suggested, contains light profanities (“hell,” “damn”) and/or non-sexual romantic relationships.
- PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned, contains stronger language (but still nothing more than what you’d see on Numb3rs), implied sexual romantic relationships, adult themes (drug use), and/or non-explicit violence.
- R: Restricted, contains strong profanities, sexual relationships, intense violence, explicit details of adult themes (drugs, kink), and/or gore.
- NC-17: Adult, contains explicit sex.
ALL FIC AFTER THE HEADER MUST GO UNDER AN LJ-CUT.
100x100 pixel photos used for posts and comments.
There is a THREE icon maximum for previews. All other icons must go under an LJ-cut.
Question for the members.
This may be to find out if something is acceptable for posting, if a new feature can be added (like a fic challenge), if someone will beta a fic for you, or another question directed at the members.
Our memories separate picspam into two categories – Episode and Themed.
- Episode: Post of picture(s) from a specific episode
- Themed: Post of picture(s) with a related theme
Subject/Title: Be specific about what your post contains (ex. “Episode Picspam: 5.01 – High Exposure,” “Themed Picspam: Nikki Checking Out Ian’s Assets,”).
Question-and-answer format to get opinions from members.
Recommended fics, art, icons, vids, etc.
If you didn’t create what you’re posting, it’s a rec. Tag as such.
A compilation of clips, interview, scene, blooper, or fan-made music video.
