Bio:

I'm a recent Ph.D. holder (aka, a loony), nerd, and epic fanfiction writer. I love NCIS and nearly every story I write features my favorite character: Timothy McGee. I generally refer to him as Tim...a fairly uncommon trait, but I like it. Most of what I write is angst and/or H/C. I dabble in the occasional light and fluffy piece, but it's rare, and I don't like writing romance although I have occasionally gone down that road as well. I have stories posted on ff.net and flashfic on LJ.


Most of my stories aren't on here. I only post my challenge entries to the storyboard. If you want to read my longer stories, go to my author forum found here: http://forum.nfacommunity.com/viewforum.php?f=109

Summary: This was an alternate angsty ending to After Gibbs which was written between seasons 3 and 4 (ie before Michelle Lee came onto the scene and while Gibbs was a away and Tony was in charge). In this one, I killed my female asian probie off rather than giving her to Jimmy. Decided it was too different to the tone of the rest of the piece.

Summary:

Written for the NFA Autopsy Men Challenge. In this case, Jimmy is the central character but Ducky helps out a lot. It's casefile which is rare for me and not particularly funny, because I'm not in that sort of mood.

Challenge Details

Write a fic in which the work of Ducky/Jimmy takes center stage. Both must appear in the story. One, or both, of them must be the central character(s) in the fic. It doesn’t have to be a casefile. There are other ways of showcasing them. The story doesn’t even have to concern an autopsy. If you can find another way to put the spotlight on one or both of them, you can do so.

Oh, this is nice. I don't feel particularly confident writing Jimmy myself. He's too much of an Enigma for me (I watched that episode yesterday. It was good. :) ). I like Jimmy, and I'm glad that they added him into the cast. He really should be a regular cast member, rather than just recurring.

Date: 04/21/2008 Title: Chapter 5: Chapter 5 - Women and Sympathy

Ooh, could have been a cat fight! :) I really do like how you've done this. It's a good contrast between experience and the tyro...although Jimmy's not much of a tyro anymore.

Author's Response:

Thanks for the comments, I' not a very confident Jimmy writer. I feel like I'm writing my first McGee.

I could have gone cat fight, I could have gone the 'misunderstanding arguement' route (but I hate that), I just wanted to put in a little Jimmy/Michelle for practise.

Reviewer: Enthusiastic Fish Signed
Date: 04/24/2008 Title: Chapter 7: Chapter 7 -Secondment

I'm still reading! Promise!

 We don't get enough of Jimmy shining, I think. Dog Tags certainly gave him that chance, and I like the way  you've written him here...because he's not an agent, but he's doing his best, and I think it's well done.

You're right. This has nothing to do with ice skating. :)

 Still, it's nice and rather typical of Tony to avoid telling the truth.

(By the way, if Tony and Tim were sitting at their own desks when throwing the hackysack around, then Tim is more than a bad shot. Gibbs' desk is directly across from Tim and kitty-corner to Tony. Was Tim throwing the hackysack blindfolded?)



Author's Response: I guess I didn\'t make it clear. Umm.. While they were playing, Tony threw the hackeysack to Tim, who was possibly in front of Gibbs\' desk, and missed, therefore breaking the frame. Tim just took the blame for Tony, because he was being a good friend, and he probably felt equally at fault.\r\n\r\nDoes that make sense?

Reviewer: Enthusiastic Fish Signed

That does make sense. I just didn't know where they were standing or what the exact circumstances were...but that could be just me. :)

Nice...although I don't think I'll ever really like Tony. None of my siblings treated me the way he treats Tim. Still, this was a nice little story.

Author's Response: Tony is an acquired taste, I think. I didn\'t have a big brother, but my friends did, and they were a lot like Tony. A real jerk 99.9% of the time, a really awesome and loyal guy the .1% that seemed to matter the most.
