Numb3rs Series/Universe: Safe Harbor  
It's no secret that I love a good slow building PG13 slash romance fic. (After all, A Shift in the Continuum was the second Numb3rs fic I started on my list.) Of my own, Safe Harbor is one of my very favorite. So how could I resist writing in that universe a second time - from the opposite POV?

A long time ago I wrote a Don/Charlie fic called Conflict and Resolutions. The lovely red_tanger /misses/ poked me at the end of her beta of that Don POV fic with two deadly words: "Charlie's POV?" /headdesk/ Thus a second fic of the same length, this time told from Charlie's POV, called Ash and Pines was born.

Thus, precedent.

I knew before I published Safe Harbor that there had to be a companion fic. There was just too much about Billy's life that I couldn't tell in a Charlie POV story. I couldn't cover any of the original event that left him off work and home to host Charlie in the first place, I couldn't cover any of his private conversations with the wonderful Magda and I couldn't talk about his parents at all.

Thus, Harbor House.

With all that to cover HH ended up at 24K compared to SH's 16K. The more the merrier! But once it was done, despite the happy ending, I couldn't seem to let it go and gratefully readers told me they didn't want to see it end either. (Thank you all!)

Thus, sequels.

I plan on leaving this universe open ended. I'm not certain what will come and how many fic will follow, but it's such a lovely universe, I like the idea of tapping into it from time to time as a happy way to revisit that lovely bliss created when Charlie and Billy finally came together.

A gloriously romantic proposal fic.

So would that be the start of the wedding fic or a separate one before it?

/watches as universe grows before her eyes/

P.S. Cool icon! It's making me want to dye my long hair darker instead of cutting it all off.

Separate one *nods* defintely:)

Love that you will be going back to the verse for little snapshots of their lives, 'cause I adore it too much for it not to continue. Billy planning the proposal would be squee worthy. You know he would want it to be perfect, but life doesnt always work out like that. But however he does it, in my head its epically romantic ♥

And thanks, I have a lot of icons by the insanely talented valo_queen who really does produce the loveliest of work.

You have long hair? Cool. I used to many years ago, but now have a graduated jaw length dark brown bob. It is so much more manageable when its shorter, but the downside is that on those days when I have no time or simply can't be bothered, it's too short to simply tie back in a pony tail!!

There's new Harborverse fic.

/clears throat/

Yes, I do have long hair. Not sure how much longer as I'm more than ready to donate it now. I had a jaw length dark brown bob after the last time I donated it, but it will certainly be shorter this time around as I only am waiting a year and a half since my last donation rather than my regular 3 years.

Hope you enjoy the fic!
