Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: "But this is sophisticated, beautiful Ziva, and he's comfortable, geeky McGee, and such a thing seems like more than even a writer could imagine." This was the story that made me a believer in Ziva/McGee. The author does such a great job with writing Tim's pov in this story, he is perfectly in character and his growing comprehension of his feelings for his co-worker is really well done. Even if this is not your usual pairing for this fandom give it a shot you won't be disappointed.

Why This Must Be Read: Author's summary: McGee has been brought in at short notice to take the lead in a large undercover FBI operation. He is finding it more difficult than he anticipated and now Ziva has been brought in as his 'wife' What could be worse? The team try and help him through. I love stories where the characters have to go undercover as a couple and this one is so well done. The author does such a great job with the humor in this story, I giggled quite a few times at the various misadventures this couple goes through. The romance between Tim and Ziva is believable and very fun to read about!

During this month, I recced for a different pairing each day, but I still seem to have a few pairings for which I haven't recced. I've limited myself to ten of them, but there's more. And yes, now that I realise that, I'm quite afraid by the amount of shipping I do....

Fic Title: There's nothing new under the sun

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17, graphic sex
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I have to say that for the past few weeks Leverage pretty much pwned my mind (yes I've just discovered this show and it's awesome), and while I love both Official Couples, I just can't live without Nate/Sophie. This fic is beautiful and it shows the progression of their relationship after San Lorenzo. Nate and Sophie are just spot on and this fic is a must-read!

Rating/Warning(s): K/G
Genre: Romance, Comfort
WIP?: No

Special Rec #: 58

Why This Must Be Read: I enjoy this little fic because it is Gibbs being protective and comforting even though he has no idea why Kate needs a safe haven. Gibbs left his door unlocked for his team, but he never actually expected someone to take advantage of it. The two of them manage to grow closer, and more connected, and I like how it is done with very little talking. The communication is mostly in the eyes and faces of the two characters.

Genre: apocafic

Why This Must Be Read: Okay, so all beta-bias aside, this story is awesome. Set in a future apocalypse, [livejournal.com profile] icarus_abides follows Tony's journey as he searches for his partner. Dark and bleak, the beauty in this story comes from the fine thread of hope underlining Tony's determination to reach Ziva. Absolutely lovely.

Why This Must Be Read | Set in the aftermath of the La Grenouille storyline, this is postively gut-wrenching. For the rest of his life, he will remember the way her blood covered his hands when he tried to hold her. When it was over, he looked down and couldn't remember and thought he was wearing gloves. He started laughing, laughing at all that red running down his fingers and sticking to his wrists and drying on his shirt, and Gibbs hauled him forward. He laughed and screamed into Gibbs's shirt but it didn't make anything better. He wanted to go over and sit down beside her body and ask her what was up with that, all that blood.

You're a doctor, he wanted to say. Tell me why it had to happen like this.

Why This Must Be Read | (Post: Kill Ari Pt. 2) There are so many reasons why this fic shouldn't work. The pov used, the fact that said pov is a random stranger we've never met on the show before, the material itself. BUT IT SO TOTALLY AND COMPLETELY DOES. I've lost count of the amount of times I've revisited this fic. The characterisation of Tony is jaw-dropping. The grasp of his reaction to what happened to Kate is even better, the way it is contrasted with other parts of this story. Told through the eyes of a stranger, it's easy to imagine you (the reader) are the one sitting there, watching it all unfold. AMAZING. For real.

Author: [livejournal.com profile] littlesammy

Rating/Warning(s): NC17
Genre: Angst, Romance
Special Rec: 21/100

Why This Must Be Read: There are a lot of stories out there dealing with the effect Somalia had on Ziva so it's refreshing to see one that looks at how others are handling the aftermath of that summer. Burning Bright shows us the night Tony and Ziva shared in Paris, while Come hither, Sleep continues the story through the next couple of episodes. I'm not sure what I adore more about these stories -- the evolution of Tony and Ziva's relationship, Tony's good night wishes for Ziva, or the pitch-perfect characterisations.

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17 for explicit sexual situations
Genre: Humor, romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Because it could totally be canon. You know, if you're a Abby/Gibbs shipper. A very amusing short story set during the first season episode Good Samaritan. I love that Abby comes to Gibbs' rescue when he's cornered by a local sheriff who is a bit too interested in him. Adorable and hot.

I started watching NCIS about a month ago and can't decide if I prefer Gibbs as father figure or romantic partner, but these recs are a mix of the two.

Rating/Warning(s): pg-13 (Spoilers for everything up to 5x01, Bury Your Dead)
Genre: Angst
WIP?: No
Special Rec: 5/45

Why This Must Be Read: This story picks up after the fallout of the Jeanne mission/fiasco and follows Ziva and Tony as they try to reconstruct their friendship and working relationship and learn to trust each other again. The timeline is believable, the voices uncanny. This is the best Tony voice I've ever read and with the careful attention to imagery and the character's voices, it feels as though you are watching these events unfold over an entire season. This piece of fiction is just so lovely, and so well-written, and if you only read one Ziva/Tony fic in your entire life, this should be it.

Special Rec: 3/30

Why This Must Be Read: This author always does a really good job with Abby/McGee, but this is by far my favorite fic by her. That's how awesome it is. It's a two parter, one told from McGee's point of view, and the other from Abby's, and it's awesome how she contrasts the two of them using what they taught each other about sex and love. And her voices for both of them are spot on. If you're of fan of cute McAbby with just a little angst and uncertainty, you'll love this fic. Also, the fact that it was sort of inspired by a Matt Nathanson song only makes it better.

Ziva is injured a few days after the episode 'Jurisdiction' 7x18 and she has to evaluate everything that's going on in her life. It's an incredible and long piece that will left you wishing for more. Truly wonderful.

Rating/Warning(s): Adult General. Although the main focus of this fanfic is Abby/McGee, there are also references to slash and femmeslash.
Genre: Romance, "Five Things"
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: I love the "five things" fanfic trope. This story could be described as "Four Ways Abby and Tim Break It Off, and One Way They Don't. Kind Of." (which is actually how the reccer at [livejournal.com profile] crack_van described it, when I first discovered it). The fourth way is my favorite, where Abby finds out that Tim has been cheating on her . . . with Tony . . . and doesn't react *at all* how Tim would expect. I giggled quite a lot reading all parts of this fic, but that section made me howl.

Special Rec: 4/30

Why This Must Be Read: After the last scene of "Aliyah" every Ziva fan and every Tony/Ziva were practically salivating at what would happen next. This fic is just amazing in giving us a look at one way the rescue could have gone, to Ziva's recovery, to the aftermath of being taken back to NCIS. And even though Tony doesn't make an appearance in the fic until the end of part one you can feel his presence in Ziva's life (and thoughts)  as she starts moving on and getting her life back.

Special Rec: 16/31

Why This Must Be Read: Sammy writes some of the best Tony and Ziva characterisations in the fandom, and this story is an excellent example of why. Her Tony and Ziva are strong and broken and screwed up and perfect -- everything they are in the show. Well written, this story deals with some of the aftermath of Somalia in a way that the show has yet to do.
