Well definitely all my ficmas fics… I need to get started on those. And I've been toying with an idea from that post about the SexFit. I really have this awesome idea of Slave!Tony thinking Gibbs won't know how to use the mobile app features that it has.

20. Describe your perfect writing conditions.

Sitting in front of my mac in my bedroom when the roommate is not home. And occasionally with text edit open on my mac at work.

23. If you were to revise one of your older fics from start to finish, which would it be and why?

This required me to go back through my yearly round ups and get caught in several old fics. I stopped when I reached Images from August 2009. For the most part, the core of this story would stay the same. However, I would add several more scenes into this. The big change would be the ending. I had always planned to write a second half in which Gibbs' NCIS team consisting of Stan, McGee and Kate end up working a case that PI DiNozzo gets involved in. Lots of tension between Gibbs and DiNozzo because of the past sex and Tony walking out. Lots of jealousy from the team because some lowly PI is getting all of Gibbs' focus and he's outshining them. And of course a jealous Stan who realizes that he doesn't have a hope with Gibbs with Tony in the picture. *re-ponders this story*

*snort* Gibbs understands technology. It's just not his favorite thing. :)

I also think you should ponder Images. All of your concepts are sound decisions. :D

This is tough… but I think I would have to say several of the old school Tony/Gibbs centric episodes hit the ticket for me. I really loved all the tidbits we got of Tony's past before Senior was ever in the picture. And Heartland introducing Jackson just rocked.
