Well, it may not be your favorite, but I do believe it's mine. ;) Loved every minute of it, from McGee's sleep-deprived ramblings, to the beautifully handled TIVA, to the ending with Gibb's take on the entire matter. :) Great read. :)

I made this story a favorite a while back, but after re-reading it, I just have to share how absolutely fabulous this story is. I literally laugh out loud (snort, really) every single time I read it. Great job!

I really really loved this. Some examples of things I loved:
Drunk Olivious Zombie McGee (who I have decided to shorten to DOZM )
Psychic Abby being psychic
Tony and Ziva pranking DOZM
Vampire Gibbs torturing DOZM
All the jokes (which I can't list because I would take too long)
Must go read more of your stories. Now.

I don't care if you don't like it, cuz I DO! A lot. You have the most amazing way with words and I love your quiet humor. This was wonderful.

Very nicely done :) I liked your McGee voice here (because I find him impossible to write!) and psychic Abby is so wonderful! The secret Tiva (one of my favourite brands of tiva) was done very well, and both of their attitudes towards it rang true, with Tony being anxious and concerned about Gibbs and Ziva being a bit more circumspect. I love me a good dose of McAbby too.
This was well written, I liked the theme of Gibbs as supernatural when really it looked at completely natural, day to day relationships.
Oh! And the fluffy handcuffs made me lol :D

Wonderful - very in character. And you really should 'ship McGee and Abby...a) they're adorable and b) you do them very well! More please! :-)

OK, I saw absolutely nothing wrong with this, which may or may not be helpful to you, but it was completely hilarious- it's 2:15 am and I'm laughing inside myself and trying not to shake the bed because my husband is asleep, and will be himself like a very irritated zombie if I wake him up!
Anyway as usual, your dialogue is excellent and on par with the best writing on the show. Hope you write some new things soon- can't believe I never read this before tonight either!

"Abby kinda is a giant crucifix when you get down to it. At least she has one tattooed on the pale skin of her smooth and perfect back. It falls lace-like over her skin. It lines up with the dip of her spine. It is most definitely holy." - AW! at how in love with Abby Tim still is.
"McGee is a zombie. A shambling, groaning, biddable voodoo creature of the night. His undead boss has brought him down to his undead level. Okay, alcohol may have played a role. Okay, alcohol and the thoughts of Abby's back tat that have been cropping up of late and which drove him to drink in the first place. He's got it figured out now though. Crucifixes don't render Gibbs helpless, just nicer. They should all get back tattoos to protect themselves. McGee is quite proud of this theory that occurred to him sometime after his fourth round. He thought Tony should know about it. Tony doesn't seem interested in McGee's theory though, because Tony is not coming to the door. Tony is apparently not worried about the peril of his immortal soul, which is silly because as a lapsed Catholic it should be one of his main concerns. McGee does more things. More noise results. He has to practice these door-mauling techniques if he really wants to make it as a zombie. Mid-maul the door opens violently to at last reveal Tony. He's wild-eyed and disheveled, but he's not holding a stake, a sawed-off shotgun, or a Super Soaker of holy water, which just proves to McGee how not seriously he is taking the whole situation. "You are obviously not taking this seriously Tony," McGee says. "What if I was a real zombie? D'you think if I was a real zombie Abby would show me her tattoos again? D'you think if I got a tattoo it would make me look alluring and mysterious too?" - Hehehe.
