Review:
Whew! To think that Dawn had taken up briefly with Ari! And now she has a baby on the way to care for. Very interesting story!!!

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from LeaFairy
Review:
This is my second time reading/reviewing this and it's even better the second time around. I love all the fics to this series, but I really loved reading from Ari's POV in this one... Reading his thoughts on Dawn and their relationship just helped me understand the complicated man even more. Excellent job.

And you know even with how much I'm loving the beginning of the Dawn/Tony romance in 'Twilight' and their relationship in 'Good Job', from re-reading this again I almost want Dawn/Ari instead, wished that he never left her and that he decided against revenge, I just adore him and them that much. *sigh* Oh well, it's just not meant to be... lol.

Again, thanks so much for writing this!!!

Review:
All I can find the ability to do is shudder. I was hoping that things would end differently, but -- canon calls! Wah!

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from laoshi
Review:
I absolutely love the way you write Dawn. Your version of Ari is also very compelling. I like the premise of a Dawn/Ari relationship and I'm enjoying the way you've written this series. I think it's great you've started posting again. I'm a big fan of all of the stories you've written which feature her. I'm chomping at the bit for the end of the month so I can get at least one of your stories onto my recs list and start reviewing them properly. I remember ages ago you were kicking around some ideas for Dawn centered supernatural crossovers on your live journal. I don't have an account so I can't review them there. My favourite is the one where Dawn is the one whose possessed by Illyria. Did any of those stories ever get beyond the first chapter?
Comments from author:
The one where Dawn is possessed by Illyria is pretty long and actually has two parts. I changed it alot from my first idea, Jessica is Dawn & Buffy's half-sister and she doesn't die in the fire. I turned it into a Harry Potter crossover too, with Harry 'wishing' his way into being Sam and Dean's little brother. Most of my fics are Dawn based (she's my favorite character in the BtVS verse) and a good deal of them are her paired with Dean. They're probably my favorite couple.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from AonGealach
Review:
Love this series! I am glad you posted someting. I have been waiting for an update to House's Ket, The Key The Dark Hunter and the Link, and In my Time of Living. Those stories are what made me love Dawn fiction. i hope you post some more soon.
Comments from author:
I also became a huge Dawn fan because of fanfiction and now she's my favorite character. I am trying to update my posted WIP's but I can honestly say, In my time of living is going to be hard. I have become a huge Dawn/Dean shipper and I don't know if I can write them together without them being together, which would so not work with In my time of living. But I'm going to try, I promise.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from PackHero
Review:
So it was the Evils of the Real World keeping you away from us helpless, addicted and loving-it souls. Thank you for the story, when I saw the update in my e-mail I had to get up and do a happy dance. Me personally - I don't care how many WIP's you have going as long as we have the pure joy of getting to read them. You truly have a gift for words and your fans are blessed to be able to reveal in your work. I hope to see an update soon but only when you feel ready to post it. I'm just glad to know you are still out there writing!

Packhero

P.S. Thanks for the dedication, it really made me smile!!
Comments from author:
Thank you for motivating me into posting something, I've needed to do it for a while but I just didn't. I think I'm going to start posting the main story for this series soon, keep myself motivated to write more. I'm making it a goal to try to post something once a week or ever other week from this point on and hopefully finish up some of my already posted WIP's.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from RevDorothyL
Review:
So glad to see another story in this series (and to understand more deeply what was motivating Ari when he killed Caitlin and tried to kill Gibbs, forcing Ziva to shoot him).

I hope your ADD treatment works well for you, and that we'll see more writing in future (but I'm not in a position to talk, since I'm three years overdue in updating my own most recent story!).
Comments from author:
Since NCIS is one of my favorite shows, I am loving crossovers with them right now. I keep forgetting to actually make an appointment to get my treatment for ADD so hopefully I can remember sometime and get my brain in order.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from moonstarsfu
Review:
This is fantastic and heartbreaking. I am loving this series and looking forward to seeing more interaction between Dawn and the rest of NCIS. I'm so happy to see you posting again, I have missed your awesome fics *grins*
Comments from author:
I almost didn't want to kill Ari at the end. I really like his character, I kinda wish they'd kept him around for longer. There is a main fic and I think I'm going to start posting it this weekend. I'm glad you enjoyed, I've missed posting my fics and need to get back to doing it on a regular basis.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from KitKat
Review:
Loved this story, it really gave a much better view of Ari and why he did what he did (even though I still think it was stupid and he should have left and stayed with Dawn). Great job, great update, and I hope you keep updating cause this really makes me want updates from more of your stories *cough*The Key, the Dark Hunter, and the Link*cough*
Comments from author:
I know, I kinda wanted him to stay and a part of me wants to write a fic where he does chose Dawn, they get married, have a kid, and then Dawn goes to meet her dad Gibbs but I don't need anymore fics. I will try to update my other WIP's and finish some of them.

Review:
Your back!!!!! I loved this story its a nice addition to your Dawn's NCIS series, you are spot on with the characterization of everyone on NCIS and I loved how you bring in the bits and pieces! Please write more soon....
Comments from author:
Yes, I'm back and I'm going to try to stay back. The main story of this is one that I do go back to all the time (I have about 80 pages written) so I should be posting something soon.

Review:
Brilliant! You've made me love Ari again! I do hope that you continue this series, although I also wish you could bring Ari back, I love him and Dawn together! Great job! Hope to see more from you soon.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from LeaFairy
Review:
Oh My God!!! You wrote more to this series! Oh my god!! *squeals* I'm sooo happy right now! *coughs* Sorry, I'm a *little* too happy. *blushes*

Anywho, this was an absolutely fabulous one-shot and prequel to your other "Dawn's NCIS" fics. I loved reading the background story on how Dawn and Ari met and how they came to be a 'couple'. I also really *loved* reading from Ari's POV on his feelings regarding Dawn and his relationship with her. Great twist too with why he hated Gibbs so much and that he wanted to kill him because of Dawn. Aw, that's kinda sweet in a really twisted and sick way... lol. Also kinda sad too with Ari really loving Dawn and regretting not giving up on his plans to just be with her and their child. Well done though...

Thanks so much for writing this, I really enjoyed reading it!!!
Comments from author:
**blushes too** I'm glad you enjoyed it, I really enjoyed writing it, Dawn in NCIS is one of my favorite situations to write. It made me sad too and I'm not a big angst writer, I love happy endings so this was different for me to write. I'm going to start posting the main fic soon which I guarauntee will have a happy ending.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from shelli
Review:
loved it!
I was on a Rayne kick the other day and re-read a lot of your fic's on LJ.
Once you have a couple of chapters of your wip's you should post them. Feedback might help you stay with one for a little longer. It's good to know you are still writing, always curious as to what you might come up with next!
Comments from author:
Thank you. I actually get on a Rayne kick every so often and go back to reread my fics, hoping for my Rayne muse to come back.

Review of chapter "How it began and why it ended" from lilyofthevalley
Review:
This was wonderful! I always love seeing that you posted something new. As to your WIP, I would happily read a new chapter a year if that was all you could do. Hope to see you back on the site a bit more regularly, but in the meantime, I am going to go re-read The Flipside.
Comments from author:
I plan on getting back on the regular posting thing, I've let myself slack off with fanfic which makes me sad. I'm going to start posting the main fic for this series and try to start updating my WIPs.
