I am sure I have no right to comment on other people's fanfics (being unable to write my way out of a paper cup so to speak), but I have to get this of my chest. I do so dislike OOC.
Ziva for example. I love Ziva. Such an extremely complicated character, with an incredible interesting background and hardly anyone does her justice (well, a few do, like Drawmeasheep, but still...).
How hard can it be to admit that Ziva genuinely cares for Tony? So why write a Ziva who is sharky and mean to Tony and apparently doesn't know about Tony's bout with the plague (although she did dossiers on all of them) and calls him a baby when he has a cough and is in turn snappishly put down by McGee and Gibbs ( who are suddenly laughably protective of Tony - talk about OOC). Really, you wouldn't believe the number of fanfics out there, mentioning just that, whereas at the start of season 4 Ziva and Tony are good friends and in season 4 she's the only one worried about Tony and looking up information on the internet about Y-pestis.
And while I'm at it: please get over the everybody-was-invited-to Ziva's-dinner party-but-Tony incident in Boxed In. Tony had tickets to a wrestling game! Palmer was invited because he tuned her piano! The whole thing was an impromptu get together and they were teasing Tony! He's an adult, not a seven year old, he can handle that. And Ziva apologized and fixed him dinner the same evening. That this incident actually inspired someone to write a 32 chapter fanfic, where Ziva dies at the end because she did not invite Tony for dinner, with over a hundred reviews cheering the author on ... good lord!
I can't wait for season 3 and 4 to be aired everywhere, so we get passed this "why did Kate leave the show, I hate Ziva" complex that half the fanfic writers seem to have. Move on people.
