Review of chapter "Moving Near Me" from HebiR
This is really random, I know, however: in one chapter, Xander says that the hostage-taker is worth less to him than whale shit. The problem with this analogy is that whale shit, or at least sperm whale shit, is actually really valuable. Called ambergris, it has historically been worth its weight in gold. So maybe dog or cat shit would make for a better analogy.
Other than that, this fic is still fun even after I've read it a few times.
One more thing- it would be interesting to know is the Wells brothers ever reunited, and how that went. Especially since Andrew has apparently really made something of himself, while Tucker now tells other people's stories in a bar, though admittedly it is a bar Tucker himself runs.
Comments from author:
Actually Ambergris is Sperm Whale barf, it comes out the front end, not the back. I've thought about writing a small reunion piece for the Wells brothers, but my muse just doesn't have more than a passing interest. That might be something that pops up down the line. Thank you for the review.

Review of chapter "Moving Near Me" from cameocat
This is one of the best fan fiction stories I have ever read. While I have a problem with some of the punctuation - I can get picky about things - the story was so good it made up for it.
This is a real story, with real character development and interesting story lines and it manages to be true to both of its sources. I was especially impressed with how Gibbs was portrayed. Xander and Ziva both are true to character and very well written. I have a couple questions - minor quibbles, really - such as how much exactly does Gibbs' boss know about NSWC, and when did he learn it. But those really are minor. And I want to read more about this group of people - I want a sequel. Any story that leaves me wanting more is good as far as I am concerned. I highly recommend this story.

Review of chapter "Moving Near Me" from hjdevnull
This is a really fun and enjoyable story! I am not terribly familiar with NCIS -- my brother and dad watch it, but I haven't really ever -- but it's easy to follow the characters and get comfortable with them quite quickly as you've presented them. I also enjoyed how you slowly grew Xander and Ziva's relationship, rather than having one of those romantic-comedy type Moments where they just fall together. It's a very organic feel you've created here.
Thanks for taking the time to write this!

Review of chapter "Moving Near Me" from twlight
Oh, this is just to wonderful for words. I love that you got rid of Kennedy, I fully admit I missed the last season of Buffy but I just don't like the idea of Willow with a slayer like what I understand that girl to be. I really love how Xander got his gun back from the FBI. I really love this story and at this time I really can't express how much. I do however find it rather interesting that Xander actually told Ziva, Willow and his daughter the full unedited version of what had happened during that fateful summer he spent in Oxnard, when he had said many times that that was one story that would never be told.

Review of chapter "A Circle of Light pt. 2" from RedCalypso
I'm loving this story so far, but I'm a bit confused. Who is Miller seeing?
I hope that Ducky gets to do the autopsy for this one, it sounds like there's major anatomical differences.
