So out of the 35 that originally signed up, 15 have completed and posted their stories, with two more coming sometime next week. I want to say a huge, HUGE thank you to everyone who contributed, who stayed up long nights writing or drawing or mixing away. I am completely in love with the turnout, and I can't wait to finish the rest of these stories, because the ones I've read so far have been fantastic!

Don't Worry About It (AJ/Nick)

Title: Don't Worry About It
Author: inahurricane
Artist: linear_flower
Pairing: AJ/Nick
Rating/Warnings: R
Word count: 20,269
"Nice to meet you." Nick extended his hand to a weak, tattooed hand which shook it lightly. AJ eyed him suspiciously since he first appeared in the doorway. He was tall with blue eyes and blonde hair that seemed to spike out every direction it chose, but what caught his attention most was that he had never seen him before. He had been there for a bit over two weeks so he figured he knew every doctor, nurse, and staff member. Just when he thought he had the system figured out, this guy walks in wearing his blue scrubs and his stethoscope around his neck and—wait, did Elaine really refer to him as a nurse? AJ looked at the ID clipped to the pocket of his shirt. Nick Carter, RN, BSN. Definitely a nurse. Even got his Bachelor's in Nursing.

Many thanks to bubbleforest who has been nothing but a fucking saint of a mod during the past 3 months. I don't think people outside of the challenge realize what a fantastic job she's done. From the bottom of my heart, Mette, thank you for putting this together and thank you for putting up with me.

(You've Got) That Pornstar Flava

Title: (You've Got) That Pornstar Flava
Author: epicflailer
Artist: samibee
Pairing: Chris-centric, with sides of Chris/AJ; Chris/JC; Chris/Justin; AJ/Brian; Justin/Nick; AJ/Nick; AJ/Justin; Jensen/Jared; David Cook/David Archuleta (I am an equal opportunist) all to varying degrees
Rating: R. ish.
Warnings: This is pretty much a pornstore AU? Only sans the porn.
Word count: ~33,000
Summary: AJ's only been working there a year and a half, give or take, so Chris can see why he doesn't get it. He's still at the stage where porn is shiny and exciting. Thing is, Chris has been a TRANS-PORN employee for almost twice that. After the first twenty thousand tapes, even the weird sex is boring.

This is coming in just under the wire, I think, and I am so sorry about the late posting. I'd just like to add that even if this story isn't your cup of tea, or the combination of boys isn't quite for you, please, for the love of all that is sparkly, please check out the art. It takes awesome to a whole new level, I promise!

Thank you so much to my cheering section, beckyo and ptarmigan. Extra special thanks to ckanerock who provided beta duties despite being sick and has been my hand holder and personal cheerleader since I started this fic. I never would have finished without you three lovely ladies. Also, my apologies for being almost two hours late with this. Basketball runs on it's own schedule and you just have to kind of roll with it. *g*

Backstreet's Back

Pairing: Kevin / Chris UST. Sorta.
Rating/Warnings: G, really. No, trust me on that one.

Summary: To keep Kristen happy, Kevin decides to retire from the Backstreet Boys, but when the others realize they really need a fifth voice, Kevin’s life becomes a complete chaos as the one chosen to become the new fifth BSB is none other than Chris.

I'd like to thank milosflaca who helped me a lot, especially with the final scenes that were a complete mess and so, that last bit? Consider it co-written for all the phonecalls that went between us. To bubbleforest for all her patience, and I'm very sorry I was a day late. I hate my work sometimes, but I did finish. To otherdeb who betaed the first 8.000 or so words, before my computer and rl troubles ate my time, and to musiclover03 and ravenbat because they encoruaged me to follow this bunny.

Also, a big, big apologize since this had to be up yesterday. I hope the fic is good enough that you all forgive me for the lateness...

Dear Goodbye (justin/nick, justin/chris)

Title: Dear Goodbye
Author: phaballa
Artist: semijocund
Pairing: Justin/Nick, Justin/Chris
Rating/Warnings: Adult in every conceivable way
Word count: 22,345

Justin remembers the sand most of all. Miles and miles of it, the lightest tan, coarse and grainy, extending in all directions to meet the fluorescent blue of the sky at the horizon in an endless line that waved in the heat of the desert sun. He remembers the dirt roads between villages and the only slightly better roads between cities; he remembers that first sip of water, sweet and cold, the best damn thing he ever tasted even after only ten minutes under the sun. He remembers riding in the back of the jeep, pressed hip-to-knee with his company and wondering if today was the day they'd all get fucked to hell by a roadside bomb.

But mostly, Justin remembers the sand. The sand, and Nick.
