The Women of NCIS Challenge



It’s time to shine a spotlight on the women of NCIS!

How does a female character’s choice to work for (or with) NCIS impact her life, for better or for worse?

Does she experience satisfaction in a job well done? Pleasure (or frustration) with her co-workers? Maybe a secret (or not-so-secret) romantic attraction?

Does she work too hard, and have no time for diversion (all work and no play)? Or does she have a secret hobby? How does she handle the stress that inevitably comes with her job? What would she change about her job or herself . . . if she could?

Feel free to explore any or all of these aspects, as long as your story tells us something about the character’s relationship to NCIS—the good, the bad, and/or the ugly.



The particulars:

:gorgeous: Characters: Your story must focus on one of these female professionals—either an NCIS employee or someone who has offered professional assistance in an NCIS investigation: Abby, Ziva, Kate, Jenny, Paula Cassidy, Michelle Lee, Nikki Jardine, E. J. Barrett, Cynthia Sumner, Hollis Mann, Faith Coleman, Ruby Rae, Dr. Jordan Hampton, M. Allison Hart, Abigail Borin

:inquisitive: Any other NCIS characters or OCs are welcome but not required.

:typing: Length: 700 words minimum, no maximum.

:haloslip: Rating: FR-18 or below. Gen, het, or slash/femmeslash.

:bunny: Any genre is fine—while case files, character studies, episode tags, and romances would seem to be “in the wheelhouse” for this challenge, humor, crack!fic, hurt/comfort, AU and horror could certainly come into play.

:vulcan: Crossovers with NCIS:LA, JAG, or Criminal Minds only, please. If you want to write about Hetty or Kensi from NCIS:LA as your focal character, you can try to persuade me.

:typing: Set your story in any season you choose, but please post a spoiler warning for seasons 7 or 8.

:evillaugh: No major character death except for those which have already occurred in canon: Kate, Paula, Jenny, and Michelle Lee. If you want to kill off M. Allison Hart, I’ll gladly make an exception in her case.

:whitebunny: Multiple entries accepted—you might want to write a story about your favorite female character, and then one about someone you’ve never written about before. I’d hate to force you to choose between them.

:curtsey: You may submit your story to another challenge if that’s okay with the other challenge-issuer.

Summary: Life can take the cruellest of revenges. Inspired by three challenges: ‘Lima. Oscar. Victor. Echo. Challenge’ (even though I don’t think this is what Madeline had in her mind, sorry Mad), Sue’s ‘no names challenge’ and one more that I won’t say because I will spoil my story. Read and you’ll see.

Summary:

Oneshot written for the Women of NCIS challenge. This one focuses on Hollis. I never could understand how we went from the closing phoof of Ex-File with Gibbs and Hollis standing in the basement to her retirement to Lana'i being noted by Jenny in a later episode. This is my attempt to fill in that gap.

It also functions as a nice prequel to my story [i]Right Choice[/i] if you want to keep on with it. :)
