Summary: Inspired by Nora Ephron’s “You’ve got m@il”; in a Red John free future, Jane and Lisbon are both struggling with finding someone to share their life with. So, unknown to the other, Van Pelt talk each one of them in signing on an internet dating site. The objective? Forcing them to fall in love in the net, so that they could finally admit feelings long buried in reality too. But what will happen when they finally understood that May Flower and Alexanderson are, in reality,  Teresa and Patrick?

Notes:Inspired by the 1998 movie “You’ve got mail” directed by Nora Ephron and written by Nora and Delia Ephron- the story is actually  partly written following the first script for the movie. Set in a sort of AU-ish season 6, with the departure of Red John and the team being still the team.

Act IX - Being Alive

Word Count: 1,034
Rating: K+ for some light swearing.
Summary: For the first time in a decade, he was completely aware of being alive.
Disclaimer: I do not own anything except for two versions "Being Alive".
Notes: 1. Given the season finale of the Mentalist, this is officially an AU. 2. This whole story was written to Neil Patrick Harris's version of Being Alive (which is not one of the two versions I own), I kind of kept the replay button busy while I wrote this. 3. This is part of my one-shot series, "Love Scenes" but I did not write this before I signed up for it and it can be read as a stand-alone. 4. There is some light swearing, which I do not usually use in my stories but it fit the story and so, there you have it. I put it in.

Posting Guidelines
Grace wow
When posting your artwork/fiction, please remember that you must:
- post your work to your own LiveJournal
- post a master post to the Mentalist Big Bang community linking to both your work and the work of your partner (information is on how to do this is below)

Who needs to post the master post?
It’s up to each individual pairing. You might prefer that your artist posts or your author might be the least busy and offer to do the honours. It doesn’t matter who does it, as long as it gets done.

When in my assigned day should I post?
It’s up to you. You can post at 00.01 in Australia’s time zone, or you could wait until 23.59 in California. As long as it’s the right day somewhere in the world that’s all that matters.

How should I tag my post?
Please use the following tags:
Also use whichever category your story fits into: big bang, little bang, mini bang

What should the subject line of the master post be?
Your subject line should be the title of the story/artwork.

What should the master post look like?
Please format your post as follows:

Link to fic:

Can I use an image in the master post?
Yes. You may include one piece of artwork in the master post. But please bear in mind, the artwork must be 500x500px or smaller.
It’s up to you/your partner whether artwork is embedded into the post.

Do I have to use the same formatting when I post to my journal?
It’s not necessary, but some people find it easier to copy and paste the same information from one post to the other. It’s up to you whether you use the formatting we have suggested, in the post on your own journal.
If you do not use our formatting then please remember to include a link to your author/artists’ work in your post.

When am I supposed to be posting my fic/art?
Our posting schedule is HERE.

Posting Schedule
Cho o~o
We're finally here, at the end of our Big Bang journey, it's great to see so many people still with us and ready/willing to share your works. I know we're excited to see what awesome things you've come up with and I think the fandom will be very happy to have so many great things to see over the course of June.

Before I tell you which dates you've got, there's a couple of bits to get out of the way first.

It's up to each pairing who posts here in the community - whether the author does it or the artist, we don't mind, as long as your works get posted.

Posting guildelines will be up asap so that you all know what needs doing, though most of you are old pros at this by now!

If you have any last minute problems with the posting dates then don't worry, there are a couple of ways to avoid you missing out on posting:
1. You can schedule a post ahead of time so that it will post on your posting day. If something comes up and you can no longer post on the day but all of your works are ready, then scheduling a post might be the best option. I imagine it's pretty straight forward, but lothiriel84 is very good at doing it so might be the best person to ask for advice if you're unsure.
2. We will also have our usual week long amnesty at the end of posting, this allows for any loose ends to be tied up. Occasionally people forget, or have something come up at the last minute, and we don't want you to miss out on sharing your hard work.

On to the schedule...

Posting Selection!
Lisbon jeans
I was hoping we'd have a few more votes in our recent poll, but I won't keep you waiting any longer because I'm sure you all want to know when posting will begin. From the results of the poll, posting will beging on Tuesday 3rd June. There are 17 pieces of artwork/fics so we will be posting until about 20th June (with our usual amnesty week tagged on the end).

What do I need from you? I need you to tell me the following:

1. Which artist(s)/author(s) you're working with.
2. Have you already finished making art/writing? (don't worry, there's still time!)
3. Do you have any posting date preferences? (please make sure to say if there's any dates you absolutely cannot do.)

The later dates are often the most popular, so please be as flexible as possible as not everyone can have June 30th.

We need to know as soon as possible your preferred posting dates, if you do not tell us by 21st May then we will go ahead and assign you a random date. We will try our very best to give everyone dates that they are happy with, but as with selection, it's not always possible to give everyone their first choices.

Posting selection dates will be up on 22nd May ready for posting to begin in June, so for earlier posting dates you will have some notice, which will hopefully help.

Any questions, just ask.
