Author has written 9 stories for JAG, and NCIS.
Not much of a writer but I LOVE to read - which is why I have so many favourite stories and authors.
I read mostly Stargate, JAG, NCIS and Beauty and the Beast stories. Now also reading Downton Abbey.
Now that I have started writing, I will state that I am NOT a Harm and Mac Shipper. Mac kept Harm dangling for 10 years while she was off having affairs with other men. No self respecting man would stay in love with a woman like that. So for me, the absolute crucial episodes where Harm makes a change are the Boomerang episodes (part 1 & 2), in the year 2000, (season 5) when the JAG team went down under to Australia.
Harm and Mac had made their baby deal when young AJ Roberts was born the previous year in 1999. The deal was for them to get together in 5 years and have a baby, provided neither of them was in a relationship at the time. 5 years from 1999 would be 2004.
In Sydney on the ferry, Mac threw her body at Harm, offering what he thought was a one night stand. All He said was NOT YET. By which he meant - wait those 5 years, that's all I am asking. She could not wait those 5 years. She accepted Mics ring and then played tonsil hockey with him at the airport.
As far as I am concerned - that is the point at which Harm should have STOPPED pining after Mac. She is in no way good enough for him. She uses her body for sex and has no idea what love really is. Harm needed to look around for another woman - one who did not sleep around like Mac clearly did.
This decision clearly affects the later seasons.
The Adrift episodes never happened - Harm never crashed while trying to get back for Mac's wedding. If Mac does not have the strength to say NO to Mic - well, then she deserves what she gets. If that means that she resigns from the USMC to go down to Australia with Mic, then that is what she does. Paraguay also never happened. Harm never resigned from the Navy, he never joined the CIA, he was never fired from the CIA, he never went crop dusting, never met Mattie and never became Matties Guardian. Mattie never crashed her plane either.
Since I do prefer to write Harm in relationships that begin from this time onwards (Boomerang - in the year 2000) that do NOT feature Mac. Some of these other relationships could include Loren Singer, Jennifer Coates and Catherine Gale. Since Loren Singer and Jennifer Coates are pretty much set in canon character wise, there is not much one can write about them. Loren will always be the ambitious lawyer stepping over anyone else to get to the top, and Jen will always be the pick pocket, thief and card cheater, who only joined the navy to avoid a Jail sentence.
But Catherine Gale is in just 2 episodes so her character is pretty flexible - especially if we can ignore the fake wedding she made Harm go through.
There is one other female character about whom very little has been written. Harm is in a good position to have a relationship with this woman. She was on JAG for 7 episodes and one other flashback episode. So I am going to try and write about this other woman and Harm.
With regard to NCIS - I cannot stand Abby - she drives me nuts with her bullying, her manipulation (always pressuring Tim into doing what she wants, even when she knows it is wrong), her always wanting to hug people. *SNORT* Thats a laugh. Abby has NO IDEA what personal space means. Nor does she know what REAL friendship is. She does not even think about personal space. Noone ever taught her that she needs to stay OUT of other peoples personal space.
And whenever I hear her whining after she has done something stupid,"I didn't think" - I know she needs a headslap. Of course she doesn't think. She doesn't LEARN either!!!! All she cares about is Abby, Abby Abby. She acts like she cares about the team. she says they are her friends. But her actions say otherwise.
And this thing about Abby being Gibbs's favourite - that has GOT to stop. Gibbs has GOT to stop having favourites. EVERYONE on the team is important. Gibbs also has got to stop bribing Abby with Caf-Pow drinks. If Abby wants them, then she can buy her own drinks!!!
Tim is my favourite!!! I love what he can do with the computer. I wish I could do all of that with the computer as well!! I dont mind that he is a computer geek. I love that about him.
One pairing that a lot of people write about, is McAbby or Tim and Abby. I do not agree with this for obvious reasons - just refer to the above if you need to be reminded. However I do try and read most McAbby I come across - especially if they involve Abby bashing or if Abby genuinely improves and matures and actually sees the errors of her ways and grows up.
I do however, think that Tim and Ziva would be good together. Once Ziva is removed from Tony's bad influence, then I believe Ziva could become much more supportive of Tim, especially in a relationship.
Tony is a moron. Always doing this hurtful teasing. That business about names not hurting is pure bunk. McGoo, McGeek, names like that DO HURT. What is Tony so insecure about? That fact that he is "only a cop"? He thinks he doesnt have anything special skills to contribute? Just because he is not the sniper, not the assassin, not the computer geek and not the forensic expert, does not mean he does not have skills to contribute.
And Gibbs - he needs to STOP with the headslaps NOW!! That is NOT the way to discipline your team. That is just pure bullying.
I had no idea that NCIS was such a dysfunctional family. Reminds me too much of my own family.
As of October 2013, I have discovered Downton Abbey. I have been voraciously reading the stories here. And of course I have been reading everything I can find online, which is not terribly hard. Considering that it is the number one HIT TV series coming out of Britain. Anyway, in early December, the first 2 seasons of Downton Abbey finally showed up on Netflix Canada, so I am eagerly watching what I have never seen. In the UK, the 4th season of Downton Abbey has just ended.
I already have my favourite characters and have also written some DA story ideas and a few chapters. I just have to watch more episodes to become more familiar with the characters, and become more confident in writing them. My favourite characters are Edith (She and I have so much in common. We are both the middle of 3 sisters and we both had to deal with a bossy and overbearing older sister). I also like John Bates and Anna.
The good news is that season 5 of Downton Abbey has been commissioned for 2014.
