NCIS fic: These Things Do Happen

Argh! The usual December writing doldrums are putting such a crimp in my fic-style. I've got a story due for sga_santa, but am I writing that? Of course not! Instead, when I finally did manage to kick myself into writing, this popped out. --Before anyone throws up their hands in either delight or dismay, no, this is not the start of anything. If gnine gets her wish there might be one or two more where this one came from, but nothing major. I'm still going steady with SGA; this is just a fling.

--Though I must do an NCIS post o' squee; I'm all caught up to the current season and enjoying the heck out of it. Such a fun series! Such a cute team! And yeah, I love Tony like burning. (It's totally not my fault - he's basically a clone of the fanon Peter Venkman, the hot, juvenile, womanizing wise-ass with hidden depths. Plus he hurts real good.) No Tony-hurt here, though; no angst at all, just goofiness. Don't blame me, it's December. (Poor Tim. I'm sorry, sweetie!)

NCIS: These Things Do Happen {~3,500 words}
Rated S for Slash, non-explicit Sexual references, and Silliness; mild Spoilers through Season 6
McGee wakes one morning to a startling revelation, and Abby and Ziva are there for him. Much to his dismay.

Poor Tim. ♥♥♥

The entire thing is entirely too entertaining and adorable, and there were lines that cracked me up something crazy. Like "And you're sure your father is not secretly an international arms dealer?", because in NCIS-land, this is a question that really needs to be asked. XDD

Such good character voices. ♥ You need to write more!

Maybe not so much more with the crack, but with the characters!! Yes, you do.

Whose James Bond impression makes Sean Connery turn over in his grave, and he's not even dead!

*is ded*

You need to write more!

Don't worry, she's going to! I need my h/c itch scratched (and the foursome fic, too, cause well...I've already started drawing for it, so that means she HAS to write it, right? ^_-)

My boss is giving me funny looks due to my extreme snickering.


I would quote lines, but the the entire story won't fit in a comment box.

Awesome, so much fun!
Dec. 5th, 2008 06:02 pm (UTC)
So glad you enjoyed it! Even if your boss did give you funny looks XP

Thank you! Don't know if there'll be more to this story, but there likely will be a bit more NCIS from me...
Dec. 5th, 2008 05:53 pm (UTC)
OMG, I LOVED THIS! This was the best NCIS fic I've ever read. Okay, I've read very few NCIS fics, but this was just too damned adorable. Plus, you so nailed the voices in this.

So, even though in my heart of hearts of kinda ship McGee & Abby, I have a new love, Tim/Tony. *g*

Okay if I rec this? Y/Y?
Dec. 5th, 2008 06:04 pm (UTC)
So glad you enjoyed it! And I got the voices, yay! That's always the trick with a new fandom...

In all honesty, I love McGee/Abby, they are cute as puppies & kittens together. And for that matter Tony/Ziva and Ziva/McGee both are joyful too. Basically I'm an OT4'er, and any combo of them delights me!

And I'd be honored to be rec'ed, thank you! (you never have to ask!)
Dec. 5th, 2008 06:04 pm (UTC)
XD How cute! I love how the realization creeps up on Tim.
This is really sweet.
surprisingly curvaceous ass - XD Very Tony.

Your icon is so cute! I must've missed that scene. o.O What episode is that from?
Dec. 5th, 2008 06:06 pm (UTC)
Thank you, so glad it's sweet! ^_^

The icon is from the scene in the shrink's office in season 5's "Leap of Faith" - that ep basically sold me on Tony/McGee all by itself ^^

They're all so adorable I can't stand it! Though poor yes, poor McGee ^^
Dec. 5th, 2008 06:25 pm (UTC)
You wrote NCIS fic! OMG *falls over laughing in glee*

But seriously -- it's excellently in character, and highly entertaining. Great job, even if it is only a fling.
Dec. 6th, 2008 09:57 am (UTC)
Heee, so glad you enjoyed it! I don't know what happened, I wasn't meaning to write NCIS, but they're too cute to resist...

Thank you! ^___^

So Cute! I love the grilling the girls give McGee and how he keeps trying to NOT answer all the while probably wondering how this 'spilling his guts' conversation ever got away from him.

and I even have an NCIS icon :)
Dec. 6th, 2008 09:58 am (UTC)
Thank you - poor McGee, his friends all make life so difficult...

(Is, like, all of fandom sekkritly watching NCIS? I didn't know there were so many of us! ^^)
Dec. 5th, 2008 07:28 pm (UTC)
"Ah, yes. I'm sorry, McGee. I meant to say that chances are high that Gibbs will soon be senile enough not to notice two of his field agents are screwing."

I don't even know this fandom, but I would rec this solely on the awesome of your dialogue.
And of how well I can see the characters. Just. Everything. *O*

THIS IS WHY WHEN I COME TO THIS JOURNAL, I START READING STUFF I'VE NEVER EVEN HEARD ABOUT. I FEAR. Your awesome suckers me into things--how do you think I got into One Piece and properly into Saiyuki? Your fics. T.T

*keysmashes* ♥
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:01 am (UTC)
Ahahah I'd apologize but I'm too flattered. And NCIS is terribly cute! *makes grabby motions for your fangirl soul*

Very glad you enjoyed it, even not knowing the chars! ^^
Dec. 5th, 2008 08:41 pm (UTC)
Eeeee! I always say that NCIS is one of those fandoms where I don't actually care about the fandom and never want to read fic but you just make it so delightfully wonderful. And adorable. And absolutely precious! ♥ ♥ ♥
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:04 am (UTC)
I wish there was more NCIS fic to read! ...of course I kinda want gen. Which means I write slash. It makes sense in my head! ...well no, it doesn't, but somehow that's how it works. (I need OT4 fic so bad, though...)
Dec. 5th, 2008 09:24 pm (UTC)
Adorable! I grinned through the entire story! This is so cute!
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:04 am (UTC)
Eeee, thank you! (so many NCIS fen about! ^^)
Dec. 5th, 2008 10:49 pm (UTC)
Oh my, this is so fantastically great. Definitely going on my recs list. *off to see if you've written anything else NCIS* You have the voices down pat, and I'd just love more Tony/Tim interaction :)
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:08 am (UTC)
So glad you enjoyed it! This is my first NCIS, but I probably will be doing a couple more (maybe not Tony/Tim, but Tony-something, definitely!)

--And thanks for the rec! Also I owe you feedback, looking at your lj I realized I was on your page in a recent fic-hunt, your stories are a lot of fun!

Dating Tony would be SOOOOO hot, but if you're McGee - really, really mortifying as well. Poor boy!
Dec. 6th, 2008 02:57 am (UTC)
ROFLMAO, which I shouldn't because generally I wouldn't touch Tony/McGee with a ten foot pole but your summary caught my eye and before I knew it I was not only clicking but at the end of the fic.
Wonderfully funny
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:10 am (UTC)
Heee, so glad you enjoyed it! (I don't know why I'm writing Tony/Tim myself; I don't really have an OTP in NCIS, so was quite surprised when this pounced me!)

Dec. 6th, 2008 10:11 am (UTC)
Thank you, and you're welcome for the smile! ^_^
Dec. 6th, 2008 04:40 am (UTC)
This has got to be, hands down, the most freakishly adorable fic ever. And everyone was so in character! Which I love, because that was a lot of the adorableness. :) I loved this!
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:12 am (UTC)
Hee, so glad you enjoyed it! And that it's in character, glad I captured them, in all their adorableness~
Dec. 6th, 2008 05:09 am (UTC)
I can't believe I read this! Not because it's you, you are so awesome I already built you an altar to worship your awesome writing. But as in I don't read slash in this fandom, I mean ever. I don't even like slash in this fandom, but this, this was just too cute and funny and I . . . I don't know what else to say. *blinks* I really don't. This story makes my McGee/Tony friendship fic I just posted seemed like a poor imitation of the show. You ARE SO AWESOME!!!!!! *blinks* Okay, I'll be going now. *blinks some more*
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:13 am (UTC)
Hee - I actually am more into gen in this fandom myself, I don't know what happened here, but once I had the idea it was just too silly to let go. Poor McGee! Glad you enjoyed it ^^

--ahh, you mentioned you write fic, must go check that out!

There are no words for sheer amount of awesome and adorkability this has. You have to write more!
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:13 am (UTC)
So glad you enjoyed it! There's probably a bit more NCIS in me...
Dec. 6th, 2008 12:29 pm (UTC)
That was hilarious. Poor inexperienced McGee landing Tony of all people. And not realizing it.

Dec. 6th, 2008 01:49 pm (UTC)
*laughs* Some guys have all the luck...and then there's McGee! ^^
Dec. 6th, 2008 09:45 pm (UTC)
Oh McGee! His pov (the panic, the dithering, the desperate backpedalling) was so cute, and your character voices are awesome, particularly Ziva's awkward phrasing *g*
Dec. 7th, 2008 04:34 am (UTC)
Glad you enjoyed it! Ziva's dialogue is lots of fun to write (I complain about the unrealism of her malapropisms, but they're awfully entertaining to come up with ^^;)
Dec. 6th, 2008 10:19 pm (UTC)
Cute and funny.

I really liked it =)
Dec. 7th, 2008 04:35 am (UTC)

gods above and below! How cute and wonderful is this!?


You capture their voices so well, ALL of them, and the Zivaisms were well done, and ABBY! OMG! You nailed her onna head.

My favourite line: "FA-18 Hornets could land on that smile." Well done!

Great story and great characterization and dialogue. You got McGee's dismay just perfect, Abby's enthusiasm and Ziva's, well, Zivaness. (and that line about her pantherlike look, rowr! Just...yeah.)

I enjoyed the hell outta this and am off to look for more...

*gives treats*
Dec. 7th, 2008 04:39 am (UTC)
Hee, I'm so glad you enjoyed it, and the characters were all themselves - I love all of them and hoped I was doing them all justice, so happy I pulled it off!

Don't have any more NCIS yet, but stay tuned...
