I hope that it delivers in the end. It's a strange answer and I'm worried that it won't be enough.

I'm glad you like Jon David Forsgern...even if you couldn't remember his last name. ;D

I'm terrible at remembering names. Even in stories I like (such as yours). Even in stories I write! You don't know how many times I'll rewrite a review that I started on someone's story so I can avoid going back and looking up the name. :embarassed:

That's so...strange..But in a good, intriguing way! I don't know what to think! It's not what I was expecting at all.

Now, I'm curious. What were you expecting?

If you thought this much was strange, wait until you get the whole story.

Well, I was expecting the guy in question to be a bit...gruffer. One of those real badass kinds of guys. Honestly, I hadn't figured out why he'd don it (and glued the knife into Tim's hand). I want the whole story, regardless of how strange it may be!

Well, that was interesting. Very psycho, wow. The guy, that is. Of course. Haha, loved Tony's menage a trois comment. ;D That was so him. Curiouser and curiouser, though.

I really like this story, especially because it is paced much like an episode. Which I love. I could read stories like this all day. ;D

It will be strange, Colleen. I've been asking myself where I got the idea from. ;D

Yeah, I thought that would be an appropriate Tony comment. Psycho indeed. I can't be normal. Ever.

I'm glad, Barbara. I've been trying to pace it that way. It will be slightly different in the end because there will be an epilogue, but you'll be getting all the nitty gritty next chapter.

Well, the whole I love you most thing doesn't make sense, but that’s in the killer's mind so that's not surprising. Poor Tim. He just doesn't make out so well in your fics. Another excellent chapter.

You always manage to think up the most original things! This game of "love" that resulted in murder was just out of nowhere! I really liked that (I mean, as a murder motive and such).

I have it all laid out in my head, tjl. I suppose I could add that in, the escalating nature of their game. It started with innocuous things like giving gifts and things like that, but then, it became more serious. She moved in (because he loved her so much that he wanted to be with her all the time). She showed him how much she loved him for that. He loved her so much that he hit her...and she got the restraining order...but then, she showed him that she loved him the most by forgiving him and taking him back. ...but yes, in the end, it's nutty regardless. ...at least Tim usually lives through my stories...and he's usually pretty happy at the end. ;D

It is kind of out of left field, isn't it. I honestly don't know how I came up with this one. It's one of my weirder ideas.

I just don't know how killing someone (or hitting them) shows that you love them. However, given that it's all in the killer's mind, I'm fine with not understanding.

Oh, I don't agree with Forsgern, tjl. The pair of them were a bit crazy. ...actually, most of my villains have flirted with that label.

How terrible for Tim to have watched that...but necessary. Well done.

Yeah, that was a necessary evil with Tim's mindset. He wouldn't have believed otherwise. Glad you liked it.

Very nice! Twisted minds can do strange things...and people competing in games can come up with some really strange things.

Nicely done!

On a scale of square root of 3 to 72 (since we're talking twisted), I'd say you're an 87.

(And I mean that in a nice way. ;D )

Excellent! I just read chapter 5 and the epilogue together. Wonderfully done. Paced like an episode, crazy psycho plot line and lots of team humor. And a McGiva epilogue! Well, friendship in your mind. But the reader interpretation...you know what mine was! :flirtysmile:

Brilliant!

Wow, intense last two chapters, especially McGee watching the video of the killing. That would be awful. I would want to move out of my apartment entirely. Holy cats. And yes, the ending. :smitten: I loved that. :) Quite nice. Bravo!

I did consider having him move, Sherry, but I had to end the story and that would be a chapter in and of itself. I'm glad you enjoyed the ending.

Aw, Timmy! I just want to cuddle him and let him know that I'm [s]relatively[s] sane! I can only imagine, though, how it would feel to stay in the apartment when a woman was murdered there. I don't blame him for buying a new bed!

Great story!

Well, I figured Ducky would never do something so banal as cowtipping. ...just don't ask me why his story was about a cow. :) I'm glad you liked it!

Another great story Teri! The conclusion was excellent, the epilogue, with lovely contributions from Ducky rounded everything off beautifully.....and did I detect a little hint of McGiva at the end? Tremendous!!

Thanks, Mad! In my world, Ziva was just being a good friend, but in the McGivaists' world, it was McGiva. :)

Okay, so resurrecting an old thread but I don't believe you'll mind.

I was browsing the old challenges on the Story Board and I came across the Suspicious Minds challenge and saw you wrote a story and I was curious and read it and so glad I did. What a great story! It was a great new spin on an old story plot and a very interesting one, at that.

When Tim kept saying, "But I remember doing it!" I was sitting here thinking "Oh no, he may have actually done it if he remembers doing it."

And then the mechanism of murder made perfect sense. Well no wonder he remembers doing it but holy cow, what a clever take on an old plot. And Gibbs and Tony were awesome in their steadfast faith that there was no way Tim did it.

I really liked the hint of McGiva at the end. Thanks for a good read!

I don't mind at all, but I was definitely surprised to see this thread. :) I intentionally tried to write a story that was a little different from what the challenge was but still keeping to the requirements. It was just a moment of, "What if the person they had to convince was the one actually under suspicion?" And of course, it had to be Tim. :)

Figuring out what would lead to the result I started with took some time, but I'm glad you liked it. The only thing harder than that was figuring out how to end it, and I had to show Tim getting back in the saddle again. I did hints of McGiva quite a bit in those days. :yes: It's partly Sherry's fault. ;D

I think this is the first hint of McGiva I've ever seen in any of your stories. I either don't remember or never knew you used to drop hints of McGiva in your stories, didn't know they were a 'ship you considered a possibility. One of the things I thought last night was, "I bet Sherry adored that." I was rather surprised to see the hint of McGiva, but pleasantly so.

Poor Tim. You really do drag him through the wringer but your ending for this story was really good. I thought after Tim being so upset about women, dropping that sweet McGiva hint was really uplifting, and it was also telling that he trusted her enough to fall into a deep sleep in her presence. I loved that!

I did a similar hint at the end of Pictures of Somebody, and I wrote quite a few McGiva oneshots, usually at Sherry's request, but once or twice on my own. The writers did a good job of showing Tim and Ziva as two people who genuinely enjoyed each other's company. I always thought that a relationship looked much more plausible between them than between Tony and Ziva simply because the writers usually had them at each other's throats, not a good way to start a relationship. Once I gave up on Tim and Abby, I thought Tim and Ziva would work. I also did a couple of McKate oneshots, although I like Kate better with Stan Burley. :)

Tim and Ziva is one 'ship I have a very hard time wrapping my head around so I really appreciate when it's done well. I'm always afraid Ziva is going to be overbearing and be a bully to Tim, especially when she gets angry.

On the other hand, seeing Tim stand up to her when she's angry would be amazing. I always thought it would take a lot to make Tim angry but if he did get angry, ooooh boy, RUN!
