Reviews for Out of the Basement
FalconLux chapter 40 . 10/23
Wow. What a ride. I just binge-read this story over the last few days (fitting in a little real life along the way) and I'm completely blown away. I generally have a difficult time sticking with a story this long as I either get bored because it doesn't hold the tension well enough or frustrated because the author uses heavy, drawn out black moments to keep the plot moving. If I'm being completely honest, I didn't have high expectations when I started this. I just figured it looked good enough to give it a try and I'd just read until I got bored or frustrated and then stop reading.

That, as I said, was a few days ago, and not only did I not get bored or frustrated, but I had a hard time stopping to do things like sleep, eat, bathe, etc... You did a wonderful job of putting enough case-related stuff in there to keep things interesting and even intense at times, but there was enough fluff in between to break it up so it didn't become too heavy. And you didn't have any big black moments for the romance. I really hate those because they're most often instigated by the characters being obtuse and I like smart characters. Disagreements and even arguments I can get behind, but not the huge blow-out fight over something basically a misunderstanding that threatens to ruin both characters' happiness forever, but was really just a misunderstanding and therefore is eventually brushed away with no hard feelings and everyone can live happily ever after, the end.

Sorry. Pet peeve of mine. It's become almost a standard recipe for romantic comedies these days and it makes them horrifically predictable and annoying.

Point being, your story was not predictable or annoying. Thank you so much for sharing. I will definitely be coming back to read this story again and again.

I just spent the last few days reading this story. I loved this story. I love how deep you went into the relationships and the detail of the cases they worked on.
Nice to see tony getting his own team and dealing with the feelings of leaving his own.

The dialog in chapter 18 among the team is very well written. I've read this story many times and this always makes me laugh. I love Abby's "You're such a pig" and Ducky all frustrated because Tony gets everyone worked up. Love the banter. Such a fantastic story start to finish.

I'm kinda hoping maybe their subterfuge is them trying to do something good for tiff. I mean Gibbs n Tony are just too dang mushy and emotional, it seems its 90% mush but when you write more towards a plot like the case and interactions with others etc. its hard to stop reading

the elly and Parke thing is soooo too much. it seems like every single book that gas a gay couple as the main characters, the other characters always end up in gay relationships Or het relationships but still. I mean realistically not everyone in your life falls in love just cause you do. sorry for the rant
