Numb3rs Fic: Plan of Action  
Written for numb3rs100 Author Reward

Title: Plan of Action
Series/Universe: Wildcard
Pairing/Characters: Larry/Megan
Rating: G
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Longshot
Summary: Larry and Megan both have a plan for the car show
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

"Look! Studebakers! Next row over!"

"Now Megan, you can't expect me to just wander through the car show randomly. It's inefficient. A strategic approach is best. The cars are lined up in six rows. Let's start here at the first row and go until we reach the last."

"But that's not an optimal solution, a plan based on position alone. We should go by value to us: Studebakers first, Fords second, special exhibits, then best in show winners. That maximizes our time focusing on the cars we're most interested in."

Larry stared at Megan.

"You're amazing."

"Larry, Studebakers! Come on!"

This fic was custom written for philleegirl as part of the Four for Fic promotion at numb3rs100.

This story is second in the Wildcard Series which follows up on the episode Longshot.

We already know that Larry has a thing for antique Fords and at philleegirl's request I am giving Megan an attraction to Studebakers. There's enough installments for both of them and then some, so I plan to have some fun with the 'Bakers. (I know someone who is into them and thanks to him I'm not completely lost when it comes to that make of automobile!)

Thank you to philleegirl for supporting numb3rs100. Hopefully posting installments 2 and 3 will lead to more soon!

P.S. Anyone notice my pretty new LJ colors? It's been a year so I finally redecorated a bit!

I noticed earlier today! Happy belated anniversary.

I adore how Megan counters Larry in this piece. He's wearing off on her!

Re: Confession
Thanks! Happy belated b-day!

BTW, what's that icon picture from? A Nick shot? I don't recall those two ever being so chummy on screen.

And, well, Rob's *smiling* and Don doesn't hardly do that any more. /frowns/

Re: Confession
Thank you!

Yeah, it's one of Nick's. Pity the lack of smiling!Don these days. I'll have to substitute with icons.

Re: Confession

Naughty you for nicking one of Nick's pics!
(Say that ten times fast! LOL!) ;-)

Will the wonders of tea ever cease?

Pull up a chair honey and relax...

Re: Confession
It's lovely and quite unusual. Flavorful and fragrant... /sigh/

Europeans make some awesome teas. I should know, I stuffed my suitcase full on my way back from Paris! LOL!

YAY! so sweet... I love Larry/Megan...

Seven out of ten dentists surveyed said that this fic would not cause tooth decay.

The other three looked at us as if we were barmy and tossed us out on our rears. ;-)

*giggle* I love how she counters his logic with her own. *grin* That's a balanced relationship. *has a silly grin* Yay!
Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on November 21st, 2006 09:25 am (UTC)
I loved how her superior logic in this case made her even more attractive to him. /grins as well/

Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on November 21st, 2006 09:26 am (UTC)
Thanks! No clue why I didn't change them sooner. Too busy writing fic I guess. ;-)

Very cute. I have a fondness for old Cords myself. The museum in Auburn, IN is quite fun.

I thought your journal was looking a little different.
Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on November 21st, 2006 09:32 am (UTC)
Cords huh? Nice...

I wondered how many people would actually notice. It hit me that I notice when other people's change drastically, but I can rarely recall what it used to look like.

As you know, I love this. Thanks so much again.

Thank you, bringirl.

Are you sure you don't want to just get a free LJ for commenting? Tons of people do it. No need to put your own entries in it. Just feels weird leaving you a response knowing you will never get a notification that I did so...
Emma DeMarais: BlueEyeemmademarais on November 21st, 2006 09:33 am (UTC)
If you're happy, I'm happy. :-)

De rien...
