|Reviews for Echoes of Goodbye|
| rigger42 chapter 34 . 3/12
This is one of the most solid casefics I've ever read. Suspenseful, emotional, with believable tech and medical scenes, and it has terrific team and friendship vibes throughout. Oh, and Tim rocks, so that is always a plus!
Abby always tends to bug me, so I'm glad her role was minimal...in which her actions, of course, bugged. ;)
I'd love to see a sequel, mainly because I adore the interactions between Tim and the FBI team so much, and there are tons of loose threads that would be fascinating to explore. It looks like Gibbs will be reaching out more to be there for Tim as his family remains hidden, and developing trust and friendship with those two is always great to watch. Also, there is a genetic test for GSS, so I'm wondering if Tim couldn't afford it, or is in the position of not wanting absolute confirmation so he can at least hold out a little hope. Of course, I want the fluffy bunnies and rainbows of learning he doesn't have it, but it might be very difficult to write him making that choice to do the test.
Hmmm...it sounds like something Abby would do without permission in her Pollyanna-esque conviction that nothing bad can ever be true, so of course the test would be negative, but she doesn't know and I can't think of any way she would EVER know that wouldn't be a complete betrayal, because the information is too tightly held.
Another thing I'd love to know is, since threat still may exist, does anyone even know the operation happened? I'm assuming the President would, but maybe he needs plausible deniability. This is the kind of operation that normally gets some serious medals for anyone involved but classified as heck. Hopefully the Marines can get recognized, but it might be more difficult to give recognitions to the NCIS and FBI agents at this point. Do they have enough proof to neutralize or remove some of those people in the upper echelons of government who were involved in the plot? Is Tim trapped going through all that data, leading a cyber team on it, or can he just help with the decryption keys and consult while some other classified group gets stuck in a basement?
Ah, well, for now I get to play 'what if' games in my head. :)

You know I thought my proffessers were way to paranoid but, now you got me asking questions. That takes an amazing author to make people ask questions. Thank for the questions.

"It's either study McGee or kill DiNozzo." :D
I'd kill DiNozzo and then study McGee.

Hmm, a sequel would be wonderful,
maybe his sister tries to contact him,
or Moore's group comes back, or maybe
Tim actually does decide to go on that
mission when the results come back
positive, than there turns out to me
a mix up! That would be fun, Gibbs
and the team going to rescue Tim from
a mission that wasn't designed with
an escape route. :D

Saved by the bell.

Bio weapon! This is wonderful. :)
Love McGee's attitude through this,
the whole 'you can't keep me down'.

How long before Gibbs goes after Fornell with a shotgun to find out what's going on?
| Arowen13 chapter 5 . 12/17/2013
This is precious! Gibbs thinks he's dying or has cancer,
and Ziva thinks he's gay and involved with Fornell.
How could it get better. XD

Thank you for such a beautifully written and constructed story. You had me playing this as a movie in my mind whilst I read.
The characterisation of the piece was perfect not relient on just Gibbs' boat building, Dinozzo's jokes or Ziva's mixed idioms. Your OOCs also had a feeling of truth and solidity about themselves which allowed them to become part of the more recognisable whole.
Will there be a future story involving the villain?
