I like Abby but trying to catch their friends together is cruel and disrespectful.

This is my first review of any of your stories. I started with your “Christmas Meeting”, which I thoroughly loved. You are a heck of a fantastic writer, you research your subject matter, plus you can write some of the best love scenes that I have ever read. I have since read several of your other stories and enjoyed them equally as well. Which brings us to this story...
I feel very uncomfortable with this story so far. I know you think you are writing a seduction scene, but you’re not. What you have currently written meets the legal definition of a RAPE in progress, or at the very least, a sexual assault. When a woman says “No”, that is what it means. Not maybe, not I want and need you to convince me. If you removed Tony and Ziva’s name from this story and substituted two college kids’ names, or better yet, substituted yourself for the female character in this story, think HARD how you would feel...
Your male friend enters your room. Tou’ve been secretly crushing on him for some time now. Yes, your hormones are running wild like crazy. You want him, but you REALLY want this to be a REAL relationship, not a one night stand. You ask him to leave. He DOESN’T! Yes, your body is confused and subconsciously you hope he takes advantage of you. BUT YOUR CONCIOUS MIND KNOWS THIS ISN’T RIGHT. YOU WANT TO TALK FIRST.
Instead he uses his larger bulk to trap you against the wall. You verbally threaten him, yet because you are embarrassed by the situation, you take no action.
You see a means of escape from this. He USES PHYSICAL FORCE to stop you. Your body is betraying you, BUT YOUR CONCIOUS MIND is saying this isn’t right!
Now I’m sure in your story, Ziva turns out glad that Tony took the action he did, and they get together. But what if they DIDN’T...
Back to your predicament... he completes the act and although your body enjoyed it, afterwards you find it it meant nothing to him, you were just another notch on his bedpost. Emotionally, you are now devastated. You are embarrassed by the whole deal, especially when he starts bragging about it and the word gets around campus...
You see, a seduction is when BOTH people CONCIOUSLY want the same thing. One may be playing hard to get, making the other have to work harder.
But Ziva isn’t fully into it. She has doubts and she has tried both by verbal and physical effort to control the situation. Tony has overridden her doubts BY PHYSICAL FORCE!
I am both a TIVA fan and sometimes very anti Ziva when it comes to FF. Much depends upon the storyline presented and the author’s ability to tell that story.
I was captured by Michael and Cote’s chemistry. You could tell that they REALLY did like each other. That is why they are very good friends in RL. However, the reality is that the writers gave them a very abusive and unhealthy relationship on the show. I mean she PLACED A LOADED GUN against his chest and thigh, for pete’s sake! Yet we have a lot of young women who drool over TIVA and see nothing wrong with that act. And then to top it off, she has Tali and never tells him he is the father? TWO YEARS of his daughter’s life that he will never get back!
It is this kind of mind set that you have set up at the start of this current story that is the root of many date rapes. “Oh man, she was really into me! I could tell! Oh, I know that she said no. But I knew her heart wasn’t into it!”
Here is a frightening statistic: on U.S. college campuses, 1 out of 4 women will suffer a sexual assault before they graduate. Reporting a sexual assault on campus, the rate is only about 5%, compared to the 40% reporting in the general population. And roughly 80% of college sexual assaults is by a known acquaintance.
Whether you like it or not, your writing influences people. And when you write like you have in this story, you are basically telling women that this behavior is acceptable.
And no, I’m not an SJW. But if you read my profile, you’ll see that I have a lot to do with Military, Law Enforcement and Security. I not only deal with prevention, I also deal with the aftermath.
I’m going to get off my soapbox now...
