Well, I reviewed that atrocity of a story on FF.net. Here's what I said:


I honestly don't understand from where you're getting McGee's characterization. It's understandable to dislike a character. There are plenty of characters that I actively dislike. However, I don't malign them just to make a story "better". Or to make it work at all.

I do not believe that McGee could ever raise a finger to Abby. He may be condescending at times, sure, but that's not the same as being cruel.

Also, *please* tell me you're not setting up a Gibbs/Abby romance *this* early in the story. An abused woman--and Abby has obviously been abused, even if we don't know all the details yet--is not going to jump right into another relationship. At least, she should not.



I don't think I was too harsh. I mean, I could've said a lot worse. :-P

In unrelated news, I have three pages of notes on RSS now. All I need to do is figure out how, exactly, it works. Heh. And then teach it to my class. There is a reason I'm not an education major.

*sigh*

(In unrelated unrelated news--see my new icon? *snicker* I love This Week in God.)

I think your review was on target. If this writer is butchering a good storyline, they need to be told about it. Constructive criticism - if given in a good way - can always help. :)

oi. somebody doesn't take criticism well:

A/N: Okay, well, I haven't really felt too much like typing up and posting this chapter, but I did it anyways, just for you guys. So yay- lucky you! I'm sure that Abby and Gibbs are going to seem out of character, because Gibbs is going to be nice and apparently he's not supposed to care. And then there's Abby, who apparently isn't supposed to be jumpy... Bitter? Who's bitter? ::yawn:: Okay, back to bed, I'm tired.
