NaNoWriMo countdown! - 11.5ish days to go!

Caffeine stock update: Picked up two 12-packs of Pepsi Max today, have on upstairs and the other downstairs on the table I'm thinking of working at for some of the time. I shall also be frequenting the Starbucks on the corner a little more often, methinks.

I mentioned posting notes about my NaNo fic project, and that's what I'll do. =p I truly have no sense of what will come out or what storyline(s) I'm going to be writing. =\ If you have suggestions, shout 'em out!

Timeline:
My background will overall be canon through (most of) season 3. Other references may appear based on what I've read up on or have gotten spoiled for.

Planned couples:
Hotch/Reid (develops during the story)
Garcia/Kevin (established)
Will/JJ (established)
Emily thoughts - Emily/OFC? Emily/Rossi? (develops during story)

A few thoughts on characters:
- I want do have something about Gideon taking up a plot line. Maybe a stalker following him (not that the BAU realizes this at first) and is leaving weird signs/fires/corpses in his wake. There are many issues about Gideon that I'm curious to wrestle with.
- Main characters will be Hotch and Reid, they're my favorites and I've worked the most on developing their voices thus far.
- If I end up writing a case in Las Vegas, you can bet that some CSI cast will come in. And Reid and Greg will have been in a previous relationship. =) And I'll have to mention Gil/Greg relationship, because goddamn I love that pairing.

Possible Cases:
- Psychics and/or magic acts are targeted (most likely in Vegas)
- Serial murders with elements of folktales (leaning towards the "Grimm" aspect). I don't know how this would work, I admit...
- People with the same name are being killed (inspired by the CSI New York episode when a bunch of Mac Taylors are murdered)

I also have a list of potential chapter titles, a few notes on some of the relationships, and a list of "plot surprises!" for when I get stuck. (Yes, zombies made it onto the list as well as apocalyptic conspiracy, lol)

I would love any songs, lyrics, and quotes you can come up with - funny, serious, things that make you think of certain characters... I'm writing these down, folding 'em up, and tossing them into a bowl so that I pick something out every time I sit down to write.

Thanks, all!
