Like to write? Love any of the shows on the ABC Network? Great! There is a new challenge, called abc_las, where you write a fanfic of at least 100 words every two weeks based on a different prompt. Then they get voted on and the person with the least votes is out that week and the person with the most is safe next week. Till you have one author standing who wins! What do you win? A snazzy graphic and a $10 GC to Amazon or Barnes & Noble. You don't even need to be a GREAT writer!
Author: Cassandra Mulder
Classification: Eli Stone, Eli/Maggie
Spoilers: Flight Path and Sonoma, to a lesser degree.
Disclaimer: None of this belongs to me, particularly the portion lifted directly from the series finale, Flight Path. It was just kind of necessary to what I was trying to do here. It all belongs to the geniuses Greg Berlanti and Marc Guggenheim, to whom I will forever be grateful for giving us this show, brief though it may have been. No infringement is intended.
Written: July - September 6, 2009

Author's Notes: My fic writing, or writing in general, has been sporadic the last two years. But this show has awakened my imagination and made me able to do things I haven't done in quite some time. This came to me not long after seeing the television airing of the series finale, and I was spurred to finish it when I bought the DVDs. I wish we could have seen a little more of an expansion of things being wrapped up, but since we didn't, this is my decidedly poor attempt at it. Since fic will be all we have to live on now, I hope you enjoy it. If you do, or even if you don't, comments as to why are always appreciated. ;)

The only requirement for this challenge is that the words "just this once" must somehow be included. However, the words have to be more than just the title of the fic.
The deadline for the challenge is October 8th and you can post your entries any time until then. A master list of fics will be posted shortly after the deadline. Please post links to your fics in the comments section of this post so I can make sure that I don't miss any!
Thanks to anyone who posts a fic for this challenge and thanks to danamulder for the help with the setup.
The idea would be that the fics submitted could involve any of the characters or episodes, and could be any length and any sort of genre. The only thing that would have to included in some way would be the words "just this once". Using those words just as the title of your fic wouldn't count, but you could include them in any other way. The deadline would be a month from now, on October 5th.
Would anyone be interested in doing this?
'Rules' (which is a term that is very loosely used):
+ Must be Eli Stone related (any character, any pairing).
+ Any length, though - as this is a fic comm - should be fic format (drabble, ficlet, oneshot, multi-chapter, epic saga, etc.).
+ Prompts open to all - no claiming required (likewise, do as many as you want).
+ Post anywhere as long as a link is posted in ESF.
+ Unofficial 'due date' is June 1 (as new table will be up then), but if you stumble upon these a year from now 'n find one that inspires you have at it. (Likewise, if you're still working on one/some from last month, feel free to keep at it.)

Someday I swear I'll get these up without any delay of any kind. Dx Apologies again, guys - there were some massive technical difficulties on my end.
Ties in to: from 1x03 to post-series
Characters/Pairings: Nate, Beth, Ben, Eli, Frank
Summary: A story that was never really told on the show... the story of Nate and Beth. Covers almost all of the series, including the finale.
Disclaimer: I own nothing but the plot stuff I came up with. I am making absolutely no money off of this and am only doing out of my love for this show.
Author's Note/Warnings: I was posting on Broedy's LiveJournal about episode 2x12 and how a Beth/Nate fix was pretty much not going to happen at all in the show with only one episode left, but also that I didn't really care too much because as much as I love Nate, well, Beth was never on the show very much. And that got me to thinking. There's a lot going on there that isn't dealt with, that isn't shown... so, here is my take on that. This starts from after 1x03 where Nate and Beth meet up until post-series. This is, more or less, from Nate's point of view.

As always, you're welcome to post any Eli Stone story here. But if writing isn't your cup of tea there's no need to miss out. It's time for fanfic requests.
Is there something you wanted to see that the show failed to deliver? Do you have questions that need answering? Or simply a desire to know "what's next" for your favourite characters? If so, this is the place to post them.
Make you fanfic requests in the comments. Anyone can take up the challenge (just post a response) and you can write anything from a drabble to a novella if you like.
Inspiration is a fanfic writer's friend. The show's given us plenty, now it's our turn. :-)
