Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Netchka
Review:
I like her. She seems to really know how to handle our rambunctious Tony. Maybe Gibbs should hire her as an Agent handler. :-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from tryingtobestine
Review:
I don't think you have written any more where Mrs. Doris Merriweather is in, but I would really love to read more about her and Tony, maybe her and Gibb's reactions to each other...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from FiveOfFive
Review:
I just finished your other NCIS "Five" story, which means that I had just finished crying when I read this, and now I need a new tissue box. I loved that he sent her the picture of himself on Air Force One, that scene always makes me laugh, and it seems so appropriate that he'd send it to her. I was wondering if the sequel that you mentioned in a response to another review, "Five Calls", might have one take place after Kate dies, I just finished watching season two on DVD and I think he'd need her after that.

The stories you weave are so perfectly written that I have a hard time remembering that these aren't a part of the NCIS cannon, but rather creations of your wonderful and imaginative mind. But as far as I'm concerned, when Tony was in the third grade he was given a guardian angel to watch over him, and her name was Mrs. M

*gives you some tissues in case your box ran out*

I figured the Air Force One picture would be something he has many, many copies of. Probably even sent one to his dad... ;-)

You picked up on what one of the five calls will be. That's actually going to be the first call I do.

And can I just say that I am glowing from your reviews! I've really gotten into NCIS and to hear someone say that about what I'm writing makes me extrememly happy and only encourages me to write more. Thanks for taking the time to review and review in grand fashion!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from cflat
Review:
Cute story. It's nice that Tony still writes to his past teacher (of course, it probably helps that she was more like family to Tony growing up than his own father was). You know, I want Tony's father to make a guest-appearance on the show to see how present-day Tony would interact with his father.
Comments from author:
I would be interested to see his father after all the little hints they've dropped over the series. Even one at the start of season five when the Frog asked if his father was a good man to which Tony replied, "He was."

There's a lot of ways one can take Tony's background... why I'm glad there's fic.

:-)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from axolotl
Review:
I love your Ms. M character! Oh and lil'Tony so cute, there should be a sequel with her Gibb's contacting. This just leaves me with a whole lot of awww so sweet. Also an NCIS fic you've written where you aren't undoing my OTP of Tony/Gibbs *shockface* ^_~
Comments from author:
LoL... Don't I owe you some Tony/Ducky? ;-)

I don't think my muse could write that. I do have some Tony/Tim in the near future. Also have a few Tony/Gibbs/Abby fics bouncing in my head.

Glad you liked it. I've got a sequel in the planning stages titled, "Five Phone Calls."

It'll be calls that Tony made to Mrs. M. at different points after this letter and one call that Mrs. M. makes to Gibbs.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)Kiwikatipo
Review:
"However, Mrs. Merriweather and Angelique are from my own imagination"

That's a real relief, Kayla, for one horrific moment I was thinking American elementary teachers were saints compared to Antipodean ones.

Now onto your story, it was rather depressing.

Why did Doris have no one to spend Christmas with? Why didn't her ex colleagues invite her around to their place? How mean the world seems in this regard.

Your story was similar to 'Good Morning Miss Dove' or ''Good Bye Mr Chips' and those novels although classics are a downer to read as well.

"Well, first you can carry the plates I have sitting on the counter and put them on the table. Then I’ll show you what drawer has silverware and after that there’s butter and syrup for the pancakes.”

“Okay,” Tony said as he set about completing his tasks without the complaints that many children would make about being assigned a chore."

There's actually only one kid in sixty that would complain if a teacher requested them to do something involved with food in my experience. Kids love being given responsiblity and she's not asking him to dig a latrine.

I realise this is you trying to show us how cute and adorable Tony is but I think it's overkill. Unless you refused the most simple of tasks adults asked you to do as a child. How naughty.

"Mrs. M. sat back in seat and smiled the smile she had always reserved for Tony."

Lovely line. You can see from this he does and always will hold a unique place in his heart for her.
Comments from author:
First, thanks for the catch on that little typo. That's one of those that has plagued me for years, but spell check doesn't catch.

In regards to Mrs. M.'s saint hood, I've had teachers (one in particular who's last name also started with an M) that could be classified as a Mrs. M. They aren'y typical, but they are out there. I'm sure Tony had his share of anti-Mrs. M.'s growing up too... hmm... no... I don't need new fic ideas...

I could see Mrs. M. as the kind to not want to impose on anyone else's family Christmas even if it means being alone. I'm kinda that way myself.

As for the chore. That part was there to represent this: Tony has been told by his dad (and probably several others) that he is useless. So, Mrs. M. giving him a chore to do actually made him happy because he felt that she felt he was able to do something to help. The part about most kids complaining when assigned chores... well, where I grew up that was a given that many kids complain when given something to do (even by a teacher in the public schools, or at least the one I went to). Maybe it's just us Americans and our bad habits... *shrugs* But that scene was not supposed to be showing cute, adorable Tony. That was me showing attention starved Tony even if the attention was being assigned a task that his father would consider demeaning for him.

Glad you liked that one line, because it was one of my favorites in the fic. :-)
