I really like the last bit about if Gibbs couldn't call, everyone should run. It was an awesome line and it gave me goosebumps! I hope you keep updating these side one-shots. I really like this victorian era NCIS.

I like your take on Ziva's character, and her first meeting and dialogue with Tony was great as well. I hope you'll continue to write in this 'verse! :)

Really stunning, and so impressive the way your snippets here are not as disjointed as so many I've read that pretend to hang together and make the reader feel stupid for not seeing how. I look forward to reading all you have written and all that you will. Thank you again for sharing your talent with us!

Poor Ziva, hopefully she can come to belong in this universe as she does in the original.

Mad indeed, the rest are mad to come between them :) I love the last line.

Delightful look at how they came to live together. It would also be fun to see how they met as well.

OOh...oh...so, so very eloquent! The skips between sections and times is done with an expert hand, and the tone of the entire thing is nothing short of perfection. I would imagine that trying to recreate Ziva's history in this time period and story line was a major undertaking, and required a great deal of forethought and creativity, and you have managed it like a master. Slipping in the very essence of Ziva David into a victorian world, rewriting her history without ever compromising the integrity of the character, and staying fascinatingly true to the original. Amazing. :)

Last line was perfect. Absolutely. :) And I love the similarities to the episode in which Tony pulls Gibbs and the blond girl from the submerged car...unfortunately I'm terrible at remembering episode titles, but it was a ways back. :) If you've seen it, and the parallel was intentional, I'm sure you know which one I'm referencing. :) Great writing, and the descriptions and imagery used between Tony and the thug were lovely, absolutely putting the reader in the moment. :) Great stuff! :)

Ahh, you say you are answering questions, but you only give rise to even more! ;) Wonderful job, as always, and I love the interactions between Gibbs and Tony, so beautifully in-character for both of them. :) Still, I can't help but wonder, just what is it that Tony does when he's *not* at Gibb's house...? :)
One another piddly note, driving horses *always* have names, even if it's just Girl and Boy, or something like that. Driving horses are controlled just as much with voice commands as they are with a driving whip and the reins, if not moreso. And, it is customary (and safer) to always call the horse by name before asking for any trained voice command, thus alerting the animal to their need for a response, and not simply tuning out the conversations and world around them. And I am terribly sorry if I am bothering you with my persnickity drabbling...I love your writing, and the accuracy of it is beautiful. :) Now, on to the next chapter! :)

I have to make a comment against the language here, mainly because such harsh language was not often used until much later, even by the "riff-raff" as it were. While the word did technically exist (I believe it came to being in the middle of the 19th century), it was used more for its original intended purpose (Fornication Under Consent of the King), and while considered dirty, it was also considered lawful-don't quote me on that one, I could be wrong.
As such, I feel it is out of place in this.
Otherwise, loved it.

It's such a great story! I've read all of your storys now because they're awesome. You should become a writer or something!
I wish there was more of this -the bonding, the emotions etc. In the series. I would make everything much more interesting. Especially after Kates death I was surprised at how less grieve everyone showed..
Either way, you're great.

Please write more : ) I love this Victorian world you have created. It somehow blends canon NCIS with this au that seems to fit so right. Thank you.
