A Guide to Numb3rs on LiveJournal

NUMB3RS is a drama about an FBI agent who recruits his mathematical-genius brother to help the Bureau solve a wide range of challenging crimes in Los Angeles. The two brothers take on the most confounding criminal cases from a very distinctive perspective. Inspired by actual events, the series depicts how the confluence of police work and mathematics provides unexpected revelations and answers to the most perplexing criminal questions. A dedicated FBI agent, Don Eppes (Rob Morrow), couldn't be more different from his younger brother, Charlie Eppes (David Krumholtz), a brilliant mathematician who, since he was little, yearned to impress his big brother. Don is joined on his team by fellow agents Megan Reeves (Diane Farr), a behavioral specialist who brings psychological insight to their investigations; David Sinclair (Alimi Ballard), who utilizes his incredible perspective and the survival skills he learned growing up in the Bronx; and new agent Colby Granger (Dylan Bruno) who just completed an extensive tour of duty in the U.S. Military.

After some initial reluctance, Don's team welcomes Charlie's innovative methods to crime-solving. Their father, Alan (Judd Hirsch), is happy to see his sons working together even though he doesn't understand the intricacies of what Charlie does for a living. It is his co-workers at CalSci who further refine Charlie's approach and help him stay focused. Physicist friend Dr. Larry Fleinhardt (Peter MacNicol) constantly challenges Charlie to employ a broader point of view to his work with the FBI, and Amita Ramanjuan (Navi Rawat), Charlie's former grad student, frequently helps him see cases in a new light Despite their disparate approaches to life, Don and Charlie are able to combine their areas of expertise and solve some killer cases.1

Thanks for letting me know; I've added it to my list for the next update.

Also, please let me know if you'd like to affiliate your comm with any of my general Numb3rs comms: numb3rs_awards, numb3rsficfind or numb3rsflashfic. I'd be especially interested in getting more gen and het fic submissions at Numb3rs Flashfic. Thanks!

[n3] eppescest // on my mind

elysium1996 and bubbleslayer have a new comm: eppes_slash. They list their main pairings as Don/Coop and Charlie/Colby.

N3: Sexy Charlie

Oh hey, you know what I just realized--the_solarium isn't on here. It's Ian/Charlie(/Don), so I guess it would go under the pairing-specific section.

I came by to see if there was anything I've been missing out on. I can't believe how many different comms there are! That's pretty cool. :D Thanks for maintaining this list.

charlie_thud_strangefrontier

My first thought was, that sounds familiar, why don't I have that on here?! But then I realized that it's a private fic comm, and I'm not including those. But I appreciate the heads up 'cause I sometimes miss things! *g*

I'm so glad you're finding the list useful! Isn't it cool that, for a relatively small fandom, we've got quite a few comms?!

I run a community that encompasses most crime shows and Numb3rs is included. Heck we have Don all over all our stuff. cuteboyswguns. Didn't know if you would care to include that but thought I would share. :-)

don_tacgear_neur0vanity

Your comm sounds great! Unfortunately, I'm only including comms that are strictly Numb3rs-related here. If I start including multi-fandom comms, including my own *g*, this list would get unmanageable.

There's Wolf Tickets, a David/Colby comm, though it isn't updated a lot. It would be good though for people to go back and read the fics already posted. And maybe more people will post if they know it's there. :)

neur0vanity and callmeang started a great community...

It's savecolby...because dammit - he IS a good guy. :) If you could add it to the list, that would be sensational! Thanks! MWAH!

I don't see anything on the numb3rs_gen_het comm that says it's a drabble comm. I think it should be filed just under Fan Fiction.

don&charlie_addicted_shantalanadevil

Eep, it was a drabble comm when I first put it on the Guide! I don't normally re-check the profiles; never realized I'd need to. *g* I'll move it. Thanks for the heads up.

Absolutely! I'm doing an update now, just for you. *g*

Let me know if you'd like to affiliate with any of my comms, fanfic or otherwise. That goes for your other comm, numb3rswom3n, as well. Iff we're not already affiliated, we should be! *g*
