In no particular order: Standoff by Serialgal

This was also my first foray with Numb3rs. Unfortunately I got into the show after it was well and truly cancelled but luckily for me it gave me time to scour for good Numb3rs fic. Much like Supernatural,  Numb3rs has that brotherly element that draws me in. I figured if I enjoyed Numb3rs like Supernatural there has to be awesome fic I like too right? 

Well part way right. Supernatural gave me the illusion that every Fandom was as big as it was. Unfortunately that's not the case, the Numb3rs fandom is somewhat barren after it's cancellation which meant finding fic was hard for me. Thankfully I discovered this little gem and the author which really solidified my love for Numb3rs.

Serialgal writers all her fics very well, with details and a lot of political/official mumbo-jumbo that might go over your head but it works and fits given the summary and idea of the show. Standoff showcases what I really love most about Numb3rs, great action packed thrill with a case to solve, and Don and Charlies relationship growing stronger as the chapters go. A lot of brotherly moments mixed in with my personal favorite, hurt!Charlie. Adds for a great read for any newcomer into the show/fandom.
