Real life has been less than conducive to writing lately so I’m very much afraid I will be missing the deadline which is something I hate to do. I have posted the first chapter and will complete the story (I’ve never left one unfinished and don’t intend to start now), but I’m unable to put a timetable on precisely when that will happen. My sincere apologies to iheartGibbs who was kind enough to bid for a story and deserves better. The story is here

No worries! Honestly, I forgot there was a deadline. I haven't finished all my stuff yet, either.

Take your time. No stress!! :hug2col: Love you!

I'll read this tomorrow afternoon after my job interview. I'm watching NCIS right now, and need to sleep. I'm exhausted from work today. I'm afraid if I try to read it now, my eyes will cross and I want to give it my full attention. :yes:

I saw the review, thank you so much!! I hope the interview went well and that you get the job you want very soon. :hug2col: With luck the next chapter will be up this weekend. Please don't worry about reviewing each and every chapter, I know you have a lot on your plate and don't have much leisure time.

No problema, it's not as if the chapters are coming thick and fast!

Hope things calm down for you soon.

My other job ends at the end of the week, then I'll have only one full-time job and an extremely part-time one (an hour a week, no big). So I'll definitely have time to catch up soon! I'm so excited!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Okay, people, I don't know who is and who isn't reading this story, but if you see this STOP moving, DROP whatever you're doing, and ROLL over to the storyboard and READ! Do it. You will not regret it.

Thanks for posting the link, Anastasia. I hadn't noticed it was kind of hidden away in Mad's first post. ;) Great story. Dark and twisty, but only in the best way. :yes:

It’s very good of you to try and muster more readers Barbara (thank you Anastasia :hug2col: ), however, the most important thing is that you are enjoying it, after all it’s your story! :kisscheek:

No worries Barbara, it's there when you're ready. Perhaps you'll have time after Christmas when you've read the SeSa stories. Chapter Ten is posted and you'll be relieved to know there should only be one more.

I am sorry it took me so much time to finish your story, and then to compose a response.

First of all, it’s one of my favorite stories ever! So well written. I finished it back in January, but fell asleep before I left a comment. I intended to leave a comment when I had some rest and time to put it all together, since I hadn’t commented as I went, but time got away from me. So now I’m embarrassed, but asking forgiveness for my delay. If it’s any consolation, I nominated it for a ton of Hinky awards. Yeah. I REALLY loved this story!!

I was talking with a friend after the WEE swap and mentioned that when people were talking about not receiving comments from the recipients of stories they had written, it dawned on me that I had Nepal relief stories I had never commented on. :blush: :blush: How rude. I received a head slap and was told to get reading/commenting. :gibbssmack: :-*

I reread the entire story this afternoon. I know I had already given you comments through chapter four, so these comments pick up after that point.

I love your villain. He is so evil and twisted, yet I can see so deeply into how he became that way. Such a sympathetic bad guy, and I love that. A mark of a truly good writer. The scene with the grandpa and the books stands out to me…and then the one of Robert destroying it. So good.

Also, I admit I couldn’t decide if the Star Wars wallpaper was only Tim’s walls or computer. :lol:

The exploding car blew my mind, pun intended. If I had been reading as you posted, the cliffie might have finished me off.

LOVED the bit with Tim and Tony getting themselves out of trouble. They have a mirror like that in the Ripley’s museum. Early in, you come upon these funhouse mirrors that distort your reflection, so you act stupid and make silly faces. Later in the museum, you come across the other side…where you watch people act stupid and make silly faces without knowing they’re being watched. Super fun. Never thought of someone using something like that to get the drop on someone…

LOVED that you brought in Fornell and the undercover op. You laid layer upon layer of suspense, and I loved every minute of it!

I knew Tim was the more injured of the two, but was pushing himself. I love how each guy was willing to sacrifice himself for the other. Loved Tim’s James Bond moment.

I despise abuse in the child care system. It’s a major hot button for me, but not so as to turn me off your story. My adopted siblings were abused in the foster care system. My mom and my aunt both serve on our state foster care review board, and my mom did work in child assault prevention for years. So you picked another area to make me sympathetic to the villain, which is a good thing.

Anyhow, I love that he was a flawed man, and that you showed how circumstances led him to his twisted choices. I love that Robert showed regret for his part, having acted in youth and inexperience, himself.

I love the way you ended it with Gibbs and Abby. All tied up in a pretty little bow. Fabulous job.

You are a marvelous writer and I can’t tell you how much I loved this story! Thank you so much!!!

I tried to incorporate as many of your requested elements as I could Barbara, I wasn't sure you'd read the story so it's good to know you have and that you enjoyed the end result.

To say the Hinky nominations are a shock would be a massive understatement, thank you for putting this story forward; however, I won't be taking an active part in the Hinky process. I haven't read or written any fanfiction for months as my dad's health has deteriorated. He now has multiple cerebral metastases and is at home being cared for by yours truly. It's a hard road we're travelling and as we know there's only one destination my focus has to be on him.

Thanks again Barbara, reading your comments has brightened my day.

I'm sorry to hear about your dad's health! We lost my grandmother last month, and it has hit hard. :hug2col: Sorry, again, that I took so long to make a comment! Love ya!
