Yayy, I'm with Vance on this one, though ... Hmmm, no I'll keep going, I think you have a good plan.

This was a great story, I'd say. Finally, someone laid the law down to Abby and didnt try to sugar coat anything to make her "feel better". I hate the way she treats Tim. But i have to wonder why this story ended so soon? Are you and Shelbylou planning on making a sequel or something in the near future? I hope so because this seems to have been cut off in the middle of an episode, so to speak. Otherwise keep up the great work.

"hindsight..huh, ain't that a wonderful thing" wake up and smell the coffee Gibbs
Good story, I would love to see Gibbs be forced to see how a real team treats mcgee with respect and Team gibbs being forced to see how Tim would flourish when treated with respect and a little kindness.

I really liked this story a lot! I really loved Vance finally laying it on the line to Gibbs. At last!
I would absolutely love it if you were to write an epilogue on that next meeting, or where Tim does end up...or the team being screwed up because Tim isn't there. Tony, Abby, and Ziva are all takers, so it will be interesting how the group gets along now.

I really liked this story, but I was sad to see it end so soon. I really hope you write a sequel, because I'm interested to see where Vance put McGee that the others might still see him but not like it. Even if it's a oneshot (though I admit as soon as it comes out as a oneshot, I'd probably be hoping it would be extended to at least a few chapters... hey, I love your work!). Hope you do more soon!

Oh kid, you so rock the house with this fic. i've been saying awhile now that Abbie was nothing but a spoiled little princess and it's danged nice to someone else see that too. gotta get to the next chap, bye.

I really hate the way Abby treats Tim, and the way the rest of the team treats her, like she is sooooooooo great. Love your fic. Is there a sequel?

This story brings up most of the points for why I don't like Abby. The other thing is the infamous 'Abby Hug'. I think she uses it to bring more attention to herself than she does to bring comfort to 'the huggee'. Gibbs can't see past that fact that she's a partial replacement for the daughter he lost. He's rearly berated Tony for his treatment of Tim because again (I believe) he feels Tony is almost a son. It's only been a year and a half since I started watching NCIS, and I ordered most of the DVD's almost at the same time. Abbys treatment of Tim pretty must jumped out at me early on. There are some season one episodes I haven't seen yet. I do remember a clip from an episode where Abby tells Tim that he didn't need anyone else (a girlfriend) because she (Abby) should be all he needed. That really turned me off of Abby. The nerve. Especially when they were no longer dating. Then she refers to her feelings for Tim as the same as if for a puppy like he was a there for her entertainment. I could go on, but I won't.
I'd love to see a sequel to this story where they don't see Tim for quite a while and realize what an asset he was (though that's about how they treated him, more as a resource or tool) and that they miss him as a person. It might be nice to see that he'd been working for someone important at the Pentagon or something, and that he was thriving, finally, as someone important valued and rewarded him for his potential. Then have to have him return to NCIS as a liaison to a case for his boss. You know, Abby once again walked away (in this story) without any repercussions for her actions. It would be great to see her have to show some responsibility for a change. I've always wondered when they're going to let her grow up.

Ha finally some vindication for Timothy, I will look to see if there's a sequel. I hope so. But even if there isn't I love this story. As in the series it seems that the only one's truly respecting Tim is Vance. There's just something between those two that I like and I'm glad that you put in in a story.
I don't care for Abby much, her position as most favorite is just so glaringly there and most of the time Tim pays the price.
No Mcabby for me ever.
Thank you for sharing, I will read the rest of your stories.

WHOOHOOO, you go, Tim! Great that he's done something about the shameful treatment he frequently gets from the writers, er, his team, and especially Sciuto. I've lost a lot of respect for the character (Abby) for the way she uses & abuses Tim. Great Story, LOVED Vance telling Gibbs the hard truth. I love Gibbs but don't like his behavior towards Tim or his spoiling of Abby.

LOVE this story. Is there going to be a sequel. In a lot of the stories the team realizes what they have doe only when Tim breaks down in some way. Now don't get me wrong I enjoy those stories, I'm just saying that this one has the distiction of Tim standing up for himself and moving on instead of Tim falling apart and the team putting him back together. This story comes from the position of Tim working things out with the team while he stands on his own two feet and I LOVE THAT.
p.s. The way Abby treats Tim in all the episodes you mentioned is why I will not jump on the bandwagon for Tim and Abby to be a couple, I feel that Tim deserves better than Abby abd how she treats him.
Once again thank you for a wonderful read.

I really liked this story. I also feel that Abby gets away with too much, and can be real childish. Are you planning on continuing the story. It seems to good to be left there.

Loooove it! Will there be a sequel?
