Author has written 45 stories for NCIS: Los Angeles, and Merlin.
Guest Review Moderation Policy: as at 10th June 2020
Over the years I've been careful not to moderate Guest Reviews. I didn't want to sensor them because people have their right to their views on a story. I have been lucky in that in all this time I've only ever felt the need to delete one review - until now.
Over the last week I've had one guest reviewer leave multiple reviews under different guest names - the style and wording of the reviews leading me to believe they are one and the same - on multiple stories. These reviews have been what I would consider personal attacks on the characters (both OC and canon) - eg XXX is stupid, XXX should've died instead etc - and give nothing of what I would consider constructive feedback on the story. In fact should I allow them through they would be the first reviews that would be seen on some of these stories that have been finished long ago.
After some research on other stories (not mine) within the NCIS LA fandom I found other instances of this reviewer leaving other nasty remarks about OC's and Canon Characters much worse than what my stories have been subject to. Because of this I have made the decision to delete reviews from this reviewer for the foreseeable future unless the reviews change into acceptable language and meet the rules set out below. I will not allow my review sections to become a battle ground for attacks on characters, even if they are not real and I certainly do not want them to feel that they can escalate the reviews to include nastier comments.
It has lead me to the decision to have rules for what Guest reviews I allow through. These rules are simple:
1) No personal attacks on any characters.
2) No personal attacks on author.
3) No rude or degrogatory comments.
4) No comments relating to wanting a character/s dead or killed off - not including characters that are meant to make you feel that way: eg: Janvier NCIS LA
Reviews that disagree with some aspect of the story, or offer constructive criticism, in a respectful way and do not include any of the above will be allowed through.
These rules may change or be added to as time goes on.
On that note, here is my advice to you as a reader of my stories - if you don't like the OC's (as many of my stories include OC's as a major part) don't read, don't review. Move on. Same as the story. I do not need to be bombarded with reviews saying I hate XXX or similar. You're wasting your time and mine by continuing with a story you aren't enjoying.
Title - The Last One He'd Fall For.
NCIS LA - Callen/OC
Callen doesn't trust easily. He certainly won't let himself fall for anyone. And definitely not someone like her.
Jessie's patience, loyalty and friendship bring him closer.
She's the new psychiatrist for his team. He has a plan. He'll talk to her about his team, their jobs, but not about himself. Yet somehow he found himself doing exactly that and talking to her like no other - off the record.
The burn is slow and as time goes on becomes too hot to deny even though they both try.
She'd be the last one he'd fall for. He was right - just not in the way he thought.

From March 2018 - leaving this here for now in case it helps someone else.
Odd to be back. Been gone so long. Sorry about that.
Four and a half years is a long time to wait for a new post. I almost didn’t come back but decided this was important.
You see this is my “ * * * you PND” comeback. (Put in whatever emphatic word that you’d like where those stars are.)
I ended up with PND and writing got hard. Lots of things got hard, but with help I got through it and I’m slowly am taking my life back. It’s a long process. Between taking back small parts of my life that I lost and trying to live the life I had (and have now), it’s been a while.
Some things that PND stole from me I’ll never get back. Rather than leave this alone and just walk away completely and hide forever more, I decided that these chapters or stories that I hadn’t posted, and in some cases ideas that I hadn’t written yet, were something I could take back. Something that even though it was stolen from me for a time, I didn't have to leave it that way.
I could take them back.
I could give the stories the endings I’d dreamt of.
So here I am. Back and raring to go. I’ve been writing and working on what I want to post and finish. Now that I’ve got a decent amount going and am finding my way into my characters and stories again, I’m going to start to post.
It’s scary. I’m afraid I won’t succeed and I don’t want to leave you hanging again but I need to do this. And if I don’t start soon, the PND just might keep this to itself and I so don’t want that.
I want to do this.
Before I disappeared I had some pretty great and consistent reviewers who were such a great support, so this is also for them, even if they aren’t around anymore. I
hope some of them are and will get to enjoy this.
The main aim is to finish Moving On. Again, I’m so sorry - this one’s almost six years since an update. I have plans to follow most of season 2 and then one episode of season 3 (which I remember being questioned on whether I could possibly get anything out of it that was Callen/Kensi which I am determined to do.) Then it will wrap up with an ending story. It’s essentially a four part story - Dying, Letting Go, Moving On with the final part being Living (when I get to posting that part).
There may be some other stories that I post, some simple ones, others more complex. Dear Diary is a possibility as we are starting to watch NCIS LA from the beginning again but we’ll just play that one by ear, no promises. I even have one about Dom that I wrote that I’m considering posting even if it’s been a really long time since he was in the show. Admittedly it does require some work first. We’ll see.
I’d like to thank Dramamama5 for a review on Moving On mid-last year that started the little glow that has brought me back. It put the thought into my head that there just might still be readers interested and that maybe I could get this part of my life back.
So, please join me in saying “* * * you PND, I’m taking back what you stole from me.”
