Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Cutiepie
OK, I finally "bit the bullet" and read this one. I was almost afraid to, since I knew that it would hit my heart as it did. I have the hardest time lately with stories that involve children, especially "back stories" of characters I like, probably as a result of being a mother myself. It is difficult to picture all the pain that child has ahead of them, which makes their innocence ever more bittersweet, and so I tend to try and avoid it. Nevertheless, this was a touching and eminently necessary peek into what made Ziva who she is.
Comments from author:
Haha, I just clicked through to 'Lost' and was wondering why I got an alert without a review! I'm glad you bit the bullet, and flattered that you did so even at the risk of emotional trauma. Hope it wasn't too hard to read, and thanks for reviewing (and giving me my 'am I going crazy?' moment for the day with the 'missing' review) :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from VampBait
I like they way you tied it all together. If this is what you get when you freewrite, you should do it more often!

I'm an NCIS junkie, so I love any fics that speak from such a realistic place. Thanks for sharing it with us.
Comments from author:
I'm also an NCIS junkie, who wishes she had more time for things such as freewriting...

Unfortunately, two WIPs is about all I can handle for now. Maybe once I finish one of the others, I'll get going on my ideas/plans for more 'ghosts of Team Gibbs past' kind of fics. There are plenty in my head, but I just don't have the time to put them onto paper (or screen).

Thanks for reviewing!

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Past Donor)morgyair
Very well written, as the previous poster stated and I will repeat it touched me and really is such a sad piece, I also feel it needs more and by that a continuation as the story feels incomplete!
Comments from author:
Thanks for your review!

I'm not quite done with Little Ziva, but any further stories will be one-shots in the same universe, rather than a continuation of this one. But there is more to come, as soon as I have time: why I thought it would be a good idea to have two multi-chapter fics running at the same time -during exam time, no less - I don't know. I must be mad :)

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from Eirliel
This made me sad.

It's well writen and, though not a crossover, granted, there are sections for non-crossovers and many people read them, including me.

That being said this is not a story/one-shot that someone should "like", rather one that should touch a person upon their emotions, and it did to me. So rejoice, you did well, You are to be commended.

I'm not being sarcastic, I just thought you might enjoy honesty more than a 'copy-paste'ed happy review. Like I said, it touched me , and in some way, shape, or form that is better praise from me than "I liked it." I don't hand out reviews vey often, and tend to be brutally honest about them, I don't mean to be offensive.

Thank you.

Thank YOU, for such an honest and lovely review. I'm not offended in the slightest. Actually, I'm pretty sure you just made my day. :)

It's also good to know that people are reading (and I only said that because there's a massive response difference between my NCIS/BtVS crossover fic and NCIS-only stories) - as long as people keep reading, I'll keep posting both. Again, thank you.

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Recent Donor)CaptainBoulanger
I'm not quite sure I agree with the last section... *mentally* abusive, manipulative, etcetera, yes, but I never pictured Director David as physically abusive. At least not outside of what was necessary for work.

And yes, the plain NCIS fic is well appreciated. More, please....
Comments from author:
Neither did I - that last section was a tie-in to what we saw at the end of 'Aliyah', nothing to do with Eli (not directly anyway). Maybe I didn't make it clear enough... *goes back to read*

Review of chapter "Chapter One" from (Current Donor)mmooch
From everything I saw of the Mossad Director on the show, he never earned the title of father and I think this fic shows that very well.
Comments from author:
It was surprisingly difficult to write about a character that gets about 10 scenes total in the whole show, but sometimes the muse ignores the easy path. Thanks for taking the time to read and review!
