Beautiful story! Amazing job! :)

Wow… I really, truly, enjoyed this. It was… almost haunting. I got chills while reading it, and yet it was so well done that it feels normal. Well, I don't have much to say, save for GREAT JOB. :D Thanks for writing this!

GODS, but this is brilliant. The awful after-effects of something terrible, of finding that death is so near, that everything around you is not what it had seemed, that Tony would risk him so casually...you've framed Tim's inability to process it all and feeling ill and unable to sustain himself SO well here. Excellent, brittle description and characterization. Well done.

Wow. This is hauntingly beautiful. There are parts in here where I don't know whether I want to laugh or cry. You are great with words!

I love this story. Because everyone's always writing about how Somalia affected Ziva, but never anyone else, and McGee has gotten a lot thinner. Great Job! :)

Wow. Definitely a different take on how McGee lost weight. The impact of Somalia was really only explored on Ziva, but I like that you're looking at other characters too. I especially like the bit about how it was filed under the Tony's bad influence drawer, plus the little reference to how Gibbs breaks the laws of time and space. That weird moment where he covers hundreds of yards in one bound will never bother me again.
"Even if the sandwiches were excellent." Giggle.

A friend sent me a link to this-I'm so glad she did, this was outstanding. I'm first and always a Ducky fan, but Tim is a decided favorite, and this was a wonderful character study.
(On the technical side, I've noticed a sudden rash of stories where the formatting doesn't show through, it's just iword/i instead of the word being italicized (for example). Hope they fix the problem, it's distracting.)

I did indeed enjoy it. You did a very nice job.
It's good to read your words. It's okay with me if your muse keeps you in Somalia a while ;)
Thanks for posting.

Loved it! Wow. Amazing.

Not a fan of whump stories either, but this is (not surprisingly) really good. It is more realistic than most whump stories because it takes into account what we see on the show on a weekly basis. Have I told you I'm glad to see you back? If not, I just did.
| Flowsnake chapter 1 . 4/20/2011
I very much enjoy and appreciate this story- partially because it is so well-written, partially because I usually find Tim-whumping stories to be unbearable and this was a refreshing change of pace, but most because of the idea that you explore, one which I rarely see brought up- weight loss involuntary induced by psychological pain that is not necessarily anorexia nervosa, et cetera. I am particularly affected because it is something I have experienced, and it was always troubling to hear friends appreciative commenting on my weight loss when it was entirely unwanted and painful. Thank you very much for this story. -Eli

This is great! DOn't get to see much Tim angst re ToC.

Nice little take on how McGee is impacted by the events. You'd think he had the easiest time, just lying there.
And do I detect some commetary on the season? Tony's bad lines and all? :-D
"Whump" is the term used in some fandoms (it's prevalent in Stargate fandom, I guess not as much in NCIS) for fics that beat the characters up (usually physically). Supposedly, the term originates cause whump, aurally, brings to mind someone being hit. What you've got here is more psychological/emotional whump.
