Thursday - By the Numbers

trinityday here, wrapping up my week as guest host. For my last day, the theme is going to be by the numbers

Firsts and lasts have their places, but second times, fifth times, three-hundred and twelfth times... they can be fun too. Second dates might not be as disastrous. The fourth time they have sex might be when it actually clicks. There's counting. Math. 3.14. 24601. 42.

For the sake of our code monkeys, please remember not to go crazy and to limit yourself to 5 prompts in a row, with only 3 of those in the same fandom. If your original prompts get answered, then feel free to leave some more later in the day.

Spoilers are not allowed in your prompts until a week (7 days) has passed from the original air date. If there are spoilers in your fic, warn people by bolding and leaving at least 3 spaces.

Also, please thank your fic provider. Not only is it the nice thing to do, but it often helps encourage them to write even more.

Please make sure you format your prompts correctly, the last being for crossovers:

Pirates of the Caribbean, Barbossa, ten years dead
Dark Angel, Alec/Rachel, with her he feels like he's more than just a number
Life on Mars/Doctor Who, Sam Tyler/The Doctor, living in two time periods

If none of today's prompts catch your eye, check out the Lonely Prompts over at delicious.

Request for help: LP Sorting Monkeys

Hey guys! I still need just a little more help...

I understand the holidays are coming up, and if you volunteer, we can be completely flexible as to your traveling etc. But if you're going to be able to help at all, and can definitely volunteer after the holidays, please let me know!

I'm actually going to need two people on Sundays and starting after Dec. 18th one person on Fridays.
ETA: I've got the person for Fridays and one person for Sundays. I still need one more person on Sundays please!
SON OF ETA: I've had a person switch from Friday to Sundays, so I'll need a coder for Fridays please!

You'll be required to sort through all your assigned tags or tag bundles looking for completed prompts, change tags, and add completed prompts to a list for posting later. The work is very easy, but can be a little time consuming.

If you're interested, please comment or PM me with your email address so that I can contact you with more information. (Also, if you've already PMed me, I think LJ ate it in its recent stupidity - I've been having problems receiving notifications from LJ. Please message me again!)

Thanks guys, and don't forget to tune in for our upcoming contest!

Friendly Reminder

Next week is going to be our QUARTERLY CHALLENGE *epic music in background*
