Hi, and welcome to my complete TIVA world of NCIS.

I work in DC, so I do get a little annoyed when they refer to "downtown" as two blocks away, or there are mountains in the backdrop of Northern VA.

The Navy Yard is located in a not very savory part of SE DC, although it is going through a revival at the moment. You can walk to the National's Baseball stadium from the Navy Yard. Downtown is nowhere near that area and Georgetown is on the opposite side of downtown. There are mountains in VA and MD, but you have to drive about an hour to catch sight of them. Sigh.

However, I do get to see the Navy Yard and NCIS DC Field Office every day on my commuter bus ride home. What you see out of "their" window is the actual Navy Yard and the view I get from my bus window. What they 'should" see is Anacostia Park and a small airfield and lots and lots of interstate.

I am not a writer by profession nor a tough Mossad agent, so kind and gentle please with constructive criticism.

I would be very happy to help anyone who would like their stories to be as "DC accurate" as possible.

Thanks, cheers, and here's to TIVA!

The Elements Collection by jelenamichel reviews
A collection of one-shots that have something to do with the elements: earth, wind, fire, water, sharknados, etc. The one-shots will be just that—one-shots. None of them will be in the same timeline and they'll be different genres. But the common thread is T/Z and the elements. Part three: Snow.

Rapture by jelenamichel reviews
Some are saying that the end of the world is nigh. Even with natural disasters, mid-air near misses and rolling blackouts, Tony doesn't buy it. But it does make him consider what he'd regret never doing if Judgment Day arrived. A T/Z story. *Suggest you avoid this one if you're sensitive to natural disasters right now.*

Tired of Pretending reviews
Anthony DiNozzo, Jr. made a serious tactical error in his grand plan of "DiNozzo is Back, Baby!" By invoking the participation of another, he had set himself up for failure. Maybe that had been his plan all along; for he was, as sure as the day was long, tired of pretending. TIVA

SHE reviews
Tag to 11x5 "Once a Crook"; Tony has a talk with Gibbs regarding Ziva. My take on how I would have liked the men's room scene to be played out. Includes dialog from the episode. Spoilers for 11X5. One-shot. Shouldn't post so late at night, Too many boo-boos.

It Sounds to Me Like You have Better People To Ask reviews
One-shot on a conversation I would like to see between Agent Borin and Tony when she returns. Considering the events of the last episode Borin appeared in, I would hope for more mention of Ziva. This is what I would like to see happen. This story contains slight spoilers for 10 x 4 "Lost at Sea", 11x 2 "Past, Present and Future" and 11 x 6 "Oil and Water".

Life As It Was Meant To Be reviews
Welcome to the fourth story in my "Life" series. You should read "A Life Full of Surprises", "A Life Worth Waiting For" for this installment to make sense, and reading the first story "Life as I Saw It" would be a good idea as well. Takes place concurrent with Chapter 51, last chapter of ALFOS. I hope you enjoy this continuation as much as I have writing it. TIVA, McAbby, Mibbs

PROMONITIONS reviews
A series of vignettes from the spoilers, photos and promos that have recently been shown regarding Season 10; Pure speculation and fiction on my part. If you are trying to stay spoiler free, then fair warning: don't read; Most characters will appear, but my motivation is first and foremost TIVA. Title is a play on the words "Promo" and "Premonition."
