NCIS catch up

Cello. If there's still some interest in my madcap adventures of late, I'm sure I can persuade deliriums_fish to write that mini-bio to entertain everyone. She's becoming an extremely poetic creature, I am very proud to be able to read her work <3

(but don't expect anything about me to be poetry - trust me)

C'n I ask a question, though, of the NCIS fangirls - can someone PLEASE explain to me the Ziva/Tony history up to S7? Which is what I'm watching now (rewatching the first 8, then the rest for the first time).

I have such trouble keeping the innuendo and everything STRAIGHT because they never seem to explain anything. Like, I remember there was some weird thing in.... S5? About photos of Tony coming to Ziva's place at night? But as I recall, they weren't ever explained as one or the other and could very well have been innocent (though, of course, we're meant to hope not... or whatever) It's just that I'm watching S07E03 - The Inside Man and Tony makes that reference to office romances never being a good idea and Ziva kind of gives him half a look over her shoulder and it's all very OBVIOUS.

I just can't work out if we're supposed to *know* they've had a fling or *think* they've had something or that they're setting up to have something or what.

No spoilers past Inside Man, obviously, but what do you think? I am exasperated, trying to keep up (having not watched NCIS in... whoa... two years? That's mental)

They play things VERY coy. They refuse to outright say whether or not Tony and Ziva have done anything, yet they make it almost impossible to view certain comments any other way. It's irritating. Like every now and then a shipper gets ahold of the script and scribbles in some subtext when no one's looking, and the rest of the show doesn't realize it's in there. ~checks episode list~ There's something coming up that will make you pull your hair out even more. ;-D

If you want my advice, just take the teases that they're More Than Coworkers as winks at the fans without any real substance. It'll keep you sane.

That's TOTALLY what happened. Covert fucking shippers. Gar!

Agh, did you mean the bathroom scene in Endgame? Or something else?!

I shall take that very good advice. Ta, Geonn.

p.s. how many more books published in the intervening years?

I was actually referring to something else. You'll probably know what I mean when you see it. It's shockingly... I mean, a lot of people who saw it basically assumed the show just Totally Went There and made it canon, but then things were back to normal the next week with no comment, so...

And, um... I don't know when you stopped keeping track of books! :D I'm up to seven. Five with PD, and two with my friend's company. Were you here when "Gemini" won an award? I was the first male author to win an award there? ~poses~ :D

Yeah, the photos from 4x01 were never followed up. It sure made it seem like something went on, but there wasn't really anything in later episodes to support the theory.

In terms of getting you caught up, there are a lot (A LOT) of little moments and innuendo, but in real terms, there's very little to report.

*still flailing over 7x01 after two years*

Heee, I know exactly what geonncannon is talking about. I can't wait to hear your thoughts once you get there.

This is far more annoying than Ghost and all the A/O Ironbone liked to throw in once in a blue moon.

7x01 - IKR?!?!?!?! GAH!

Do YOU mean 7x07??

And have been meaning to comment on your Hermione icony thing. That's mental

No, not 7x07. (What happened in 7x07? I've forgotten.) Keep watching. *G*

Isn't it fabulous? I remember when I first saw the custom userheads, I was dead against getting one, but then something made me look through them. As soon as I saw Hermione, I was like, "OH MY GOD MUST HAVE."
