Just getting around to reading this!

Love the brotherly banter, and I can picture the boys helping each other out on weekends just like this. ;)

Excellent Christmas buddy story. I obviously have the same dirty mind as Tim regarding Tony's bad back! Poor love. Nevermind...a hot water bottle works wonders for backache...or maybe Ziva can show some TLC and give him a nice massage.

You got Scouse to read a Tiva(ish) story, amazing ... ;)
I've missed your wicked humour, the dialogue was supremely delicious!
I have to point out that Chinese characters remain the same no matter what dialect you speak, Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien, etc...
Happy New Year, Liz dear!

Enjoyed this immensely! It was a perfect blend of humor, friendship and romance...albeit in the background. Great job!

This was very enjoyable. You did a wonderful job of including all the requested aspects.

The last line was the best. And so true to character.

I can SO picture her saying that! A sweet friendship fic.

Hahaha, this was great. That last line? Well played, seriously.

oh, I know I've said it a thousand times, I don't like Tiva, but there are just some fics that lure me to read them! This was one of them! Just such typical Tony/Tim brotherly harassment, I wish for that sort of banter and relationship on the show like some folks wish for more Tiva. AND a Tony who is competent enough to figure electronics out right along with Tim. I did like the inclusion of both Tony and Ziva being hesitant to part with their belongings on the chance they might end up killing one or the other, or each other, instead of the starry-eyed, madly in love couple that sees everything eye to eye. That is more how I see Tiva, if I WERE a shipper! Baby steps, and Gibbs giving up on enforcing Rule 12 with them and letting them figure it out one way or the other. Great dialogue,too, as always! Thanks for writing/posting, that was fun!

Haha, I love it! Tony/Tim friendship is one of my favorites. And that ending was too funny! :)

"What's in it for me?" Tim dropped his backpack and sat on the corner of his desk.

"My undying gratitude?"

"Pffft!"

There now, if Tony hadn't riled him all those early years he'd never have had the nerve...

So, like I seem to remember saying SEVERAL times recently, isn't it about time you got seriously back on the horse? This is a great one-shot, espec. having to stay within parameters not set by yourself, very entertaining with the two of them as brothers under the skin, how I love them best...

Write more. I don't care about the head cold or anything else. Write more. Start a multi-chapter. Soon. Er, please?
