Please give us a brief summary of your plot. (if you have one) - Jane's half sister comes to town to visit and cheer her brother up after the Red John case is declared closed. Unfortunately, her idea of "cheering soemone up" is setting them on blind dates, and to avoid so, there's just one thing Patrick jane can do: pretending to have a girlfriend. Too bad Stella wants to meet her. So, who'll be the lucky one who'll pose as Mrs. Patrci Jane to be?
Would you like to be assigned a beta and/or a cheerleader? - yes to beta. cheerling isn't necessary, but appreciated nevertheless.
What kind of art do you want/not want to receive? - I'd not mind a banner. or icons with the Jisbon theme, and maybe a sentence like "Missing the obvious"....
Have you read the TM BB/MB rules? By saying yes, you agree to follow them. - yes
Are you starting with the Mini Bang with the hope of writing for the Big Bang? I'm doing both, and I hope this story will stay mini.

Thanks for signing up, your fic idea made me smile as I was reading it, will the person be lucky, or unlucky? ;)

Email Address - You have this, please tell me you have this 1034579238745690374 times!
What is your expected word count? (if you have one) - I expect 5000 because it's going to be long, but hopefully not so long it goes over that.
Is this a work in progress? If so, how many words have you already done? - It's brand new, unless you count the few lines of dialogue I wrote this morning/evening.
Please give us a brief summary of your plot. (if you have one) - When the CBI get a call about a murder, the team are shocked about the identity of the victim, especially one.
Would you like to be assigned a beta and/or a cheerleader? - I don't know, I assume my usual beta would be okay...but I also don't want to overload her. What do you say?
What kind of art do you want/not want to receive? - I'm easy with anything really...and also, I think this one may be rather difficult to art for, so apologies to whoever gets it.
Have you read the TM BB/MB rules? By saying yes, you agree to follow them. - Do I have to read them again? :P
Are you starting with the Mini Bang with the hope of writing for the Big Bang? - Who knows what'll happen on this occasion...
Is there anything else you want to add? - Why am I insane enough to sign up for three? Seriously? Is there a test we can take to determine how insane we are for these things? If not, there should be.

Also...

you should know by now your usual beta is a masochist so will say yes. Unless you want to keep *one* a secret from her like she is with you

What I mean is thank you for signing up again, you crazy lady.

Username(s) - *checks nametag* Ah yes, lilsmiles86

Email Address - Already given.

What is your expected word count? (if you have one) - 3k-ish

Is this a work in progress? If so, how many words have you already done? - Nope, nothing written.

Please give us a brief summary of your plot. (if you have one) - This is going to sound extremely lame, bare with me. Jane accuses an innocent man of murder and his mistake costs a little girl her life.

Would you like to be assigned a beta and/or a cheerleader? - Yes and yes.

What kind of art do you want/not want to receive? - Book cover or movie poster preferred.

Have you read the TM BB/MB rules? By saying yes, you agree to follow them. - Yes.

Are you starting with the Mini Bang with the hope of writing for the Big Bang? - Nope.

Is there anything else you want to add? - There Pop, I did it. Oh gosh, I'm scared already!

I actually don't think that plot sounds lame at all! I always like seeing stuff when Jane gets it wrong. Doesn't happen often enough.

If you're looking for a cheerleader please post here

Oh and thanks for signing up. I s'pose. ;-)
