Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Angelfirenze
This does read exactly like they should blend together into one cohesive story so my suggestion is to add line breaks of any sort to break them up into separate sections so that people won't get confused.

As for the drabbles themselves, they were all deliciously in-Gibbs and I could easily imagine his actions, not to mention Tony's, even if I didn't know who most of the other characters were. Bravo.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from ianquest
Brilliant! Loved the drabbles, however I'm very glad that you put up the comment that each paragraph was a separate unit, because otherwise they make absolutely no sense, funnily enough! :) Like the other reviewers, might I suggest something dividing them, even as simple as an extra blank line? Otherwise, the natural inclination is to try to read them as a story rather than disconnected fragments.

Please, please say that you might turn some or all of these into longer stories?! If not, will you put them up for adoption? I'd ask to adopt a couple, except that I have stories I started writing six years ago that I haven't had time to write more than the first couple of chapters for...

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Ailisande
I was really confused until I read the reviews. I'd recommend putting some sort of break between each paragraph to distract the eye, because otherwise you naturally want to continue to read as a unit.

It will make your drabbles make a lot more sense than just saying "it's a bunch of drabbles."

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Cutiepie
Very interesting. I would enjoy it if you decided to expand on any of these. For reading's sake, you might consider placing a line or other visual break between each paragraph/encounter to further set them apart as different "prompts", but it works ok as it is.

Comments from author:
I added a note on the ficlets to help people out here at TTH. I usually do these for just NCIS and don't post them to TTH, so apparently my TTH readers aren't use to my drabble collections...

Note from Author: Due to confusion from readers, please note that this is collection of six (6) different non-connected drabbles. Each paragraph is 100 word response to one of the challenges mentioned above. They are connected by the theme of Gibbs knowing each crossover person, because Gibbs *knows* everyone.

My "story" is 6 drabbles that build around the theme of Gibbs knowing everyone. I have a slew of stories set up along these lines, including one that is 100 drabbles:

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)Sulien
I absolutely love the crossovers! I can definitely see Gibbs with each of the folks you've mentioned here and his reactions are spot on. However, there needs to be a bit more of a bridge to connect the separate paragraphs because it reads more like a list of encounters than a story.

*does best Roseanne Roseannadanna impersonation* Never miiind!
Comments from author:
There is no bridge for the paragraphs because each paragraph is it's own drabble. I write many drabble collections for NCIS in this style. There is a comm on LJ called ncisdrabble100 and that's what I aim these for. So each paragraph is exactly 100 words for the prompt I chose. They were intended to be a list of encounters and not a full story for each one. :-)

This was spawned from many of us talking about how Gibbs knows *everyone*. Every time you turn around, Gibbs has a connection to a person they meet. So I decided to show encounters with crossover people he already knows. I just didn't go into how he knows them because that was not the purpose of my drabbles. :-)

Glad you loved them even if I didn't have them fleshed out more!
