May I present...

The "Who Do You Think You Are?" Challenge

The Challenge: Write a story in which the main character is not who he or she appears to be. Are they on a deep cover assignment? Is one of them hiding a secret identity? Maybe one of them has secret powers! Let your muse be your guide!

SPECIFICS:
At least one of the main characters should be featured. Anyone that has shown up in the main credits (past and present) is allowed.

Any season is fair game... but please do warnings for Season 13. I've seen the finale, but I missed some episodes in between.

Genre: Any genre is acceptable, except crack and AU. Romance is definitely acceptable (het and slash). If you do romance: I prefer a select few pairings - McGiva, McNozzo, Kibbs, McLilah are on top of my list. If you have another you want to write, don't be afraid to ask me in the comments or via PM.

Rating: Any. Violence is okay but not too gory, preferably no worse than what we'd see on the show itself. I'm okay with sex scenes, but please keep them tasteful (not that anyone wouldn't ;) )

Length: Minimum 1,000 words, no maximum.

Crossovers: Go for it! I have only really gotten into a few shows, so definitely run it by me if you have a crossover idea. I DO adore Supernatural and Arrow!

Series/sequels: Sure, just let me know so I can read the other stories ahead of time if I haven't already.

Other challenges: If there are any, sure, if it's okay with the other challenge giver.

Due date is going to be 1/31/2018, to give folks leeway for SeSa. Feel free to ask if you have any questions!!

Ooooh new challenge! Secret identity, huh? Hmmm, I have an idea already, let's see if the muse will play with it. :)

What does this mean, exactly? I mean, everyone is different in terms of what they consider tasteful.

I ran with my idea and the characters involved informed me in no uncertain terms that smut was going to be plot point.

As long as it doesn't read like a bad porn film or something... and no BDSM or anything like that (I've read them before, but would rather not for this challenge).

Intriguing one, Andrea - will feed it to the muse and see what happens.

Just because I don't think it's in my wheelhouse to write right now, but has been lingering around my brain and would go well with this challenge; it occurred to me recently that it would be interesting if one of the characters were trans but already presenting as that gender. So for example, if Ellie or Abby were AMAB or Tim/Tony were AFAB, and no one knew before... or possibly the director and/or Gibbs knew, but it wasn't common knowledge. I've seen people write stories with characters transitioning to the opposite gender to how we know them, but I've never seen one with them already presenting as that gender and no one having realised they were trans, and it struck me that it would crossover well with a challenge like this, so I'm floating it in case it gives anyone's muse the requisite kick in the posterior.

That sounds intriguing, Sarah... The deadline isn't until the end of Jan, so you've got plenty of time. I didn't want to coincide TOO much with SeSa, so I made sure to give a bunch of time for this challenge.

Well never say never, but I have not yet been able to make it go from a vague "That would be really interesting" in my head to anything concrete, hence sharing it! (I'd also be a little nervous about doing the topic justice, not only am I not trans, but I don't have anyone I could really ask about it.) I think it would be a really interesting story, though, and this challenge made me think of it.

I do plan to write something for this challenge though, just probably not that!

I keep coming back to this challenge. I have an idea for it but its execution is leaving a lot to be desired but I really, really like this idea. I may just have to change the setting.

This is such a great challenge idea. Definitely one of my favorites so far.

I set the deadline way out so our plot bunnies could work things out beyond SeSa. I can't wait to see what you write! :typing:

I have my rough draft for SeSa so far which got me thinking about the writing challenges. I can't wait to see what I write either. I love seeing how a story pulls together.
