[[http://www.fanfiction.net/~emerald1 Emerald1]].
* Recommended by Lady Iapetus
* Very much recommended if you're a fan of Timothy [=McGee=]. Even though more often than not Emerald winds up putting [=McGee=] through utter hell, she can keep him - as well as the rest of the team - in-character and make him shine no matter what situation the plot puts him in. Ever wanted to see Tim as a superhero a la The ''TheIncredibles'', or getting the team involved in the Renaissance Fair? Emerald1's your author.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/6283749/1/Moment_in_Time Moment in Time]]'' by Sweet Baby Girl 448
* Recommended by I Got Lost On TV Tropes
* ''Synopsis'': This fic starts off like your everyday Tony/whump fic, but a few chapters in it seems as though the author decided to take it in entirely a different direction, but it works! Gibbs and the team are captured by a sadistic fiend from Gibbs's past, who then offers Gibbs an ultimatum. Choose who dies... The end stunned This Troper, and nearly made me cry!

* ''Synopsis'': "Well...looks like...I've...finally...run out...Boss," he gasped quietly in the direction of the small opening. "And what is it you've run out of [=DiNozzo=]?" The gruff voice sounded just that bit scared, and rightly so. Tony smiled grimly. "Al...mosts."

* ''Pairing'': Gibbs/[=DiNozzo=]
* ''Synopsis'': In a world where everyone has just developed some sort of psychic power, Empaths - like Tony [=DiNozzo=] - shut themselves away from the world to avoid an emotional overload. The only way to break the catatonia? Create a feedback loop with a single other person. Gibbs doesn't hesitate, but what will the ramifications be?

* Recommended by Kirayoshi
* ''Pairing'': Tim/Abby(primary), Tony/Ziva, Jimmy/Brianna(secondary)
* ''Synposis'': Some things will make you re-evaluate your life. Getting blown up, thinking you're fine, and then looking down and seeing a hunk of glass sticking out of your body is one of those things. Tim decides it's time to put his life on track and go after the things he wants, namely Abby and a family. Novel length [=McAbby=] romance. Some chapters decidedly NSFW.
[=[[reviews:ShardsToAWhole]]=]

''[[http://archiveofourown.org/works/1403272/chapters/2942761 The Pros and Cons of Breathing]]''
* Recommended by beyondthesea
* ''Pairings'': Tony/Ziva, Tony/Kate, Gibbs/Jenny
* ''Synopsis'': Tony takes a bullet for [=McGee=], and his life flashes before his eyes. He also runs into more than one old friend - and an enemy or two. What will he think when he sees what could have been, and what will he do when he is faced with an impossible decision? AU towards the end of Season Ten. Inspired by "Life Before His Eyes".
* ''Comments'': This is probably the most in-character ''NCIS'' fanfiction I've ever read, and definitely the best I've seen involving Kate. Shipping-wise, there's a pretty even mix of Tony/Ziva and Tony/Kate, so you can read it regardless of which one you ship (and if you ship both, it's perfect). The banter between Tony and Kate is spot-on, which is impressive considering how much Tony's matured since the last time we saw him banter with Kate. Definitely read this with a box of tissues nearby. I had to stop a couple of times because I couldn't read through my tears.

* Recommended by Kitzsah
* ''Pairings'': Gibbs/Jenny

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7228941/11/Hogwarts-Rejection-Letters Hogwarts Rejection Letters]]'' by Sweet Kagamine Kiss
* Recommended by feral
* ''Franchise/HarryPotter'' MegaCrossover.
* ''Pairing'': Sirius Black/OC
* ''Synopsis'': "A folded parchment written in green ink appears, sealed by a wax coat of arms of a griffin, badger, raven, and snake. It reads "Dear Mister Potter..." However, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry receives a rejection letter in reply, with each reply written by a different Harry Potter." The ''NCIS'' story takes place between Episodes 5 and 6 of NCIS Season Two. Some years ago Gibbs worked a certain child abuse case where a British national tried to murder his nephew while on vacation in America. Now TeenGenius!Harry works for the NCIS team.

''[[http://www.tthfanfic.org/Story-19517/tigerlily+Lost+and+Found.htm Lost and Found]]'' by tigerlily
* Recommended by @/JRandomUser
* ''Pairings'': Tony/Ziva, [=McGee=]/Abby (briefly), Buffy/[=McGee=]
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover with ''Series/BuffyTheVampireSlayer''. Set after the finale of Buffy and immediately after the Season 6 finale of ''NCIS''. Buffy raids a demon-infested camp in Somalia to retrieve a kidnapped Slayer--and finds someone else as well.
[=[[reviews:LostAndFound]]=]

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/5252052/1/Each_Others_Back Each Other's Back]]'' by [=OughtaKnowBetter=]
* Recommended by notreallyatroper, [[Tropers/{{Night}} Night]]
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover with ''{{Numb3rs}}''. There's a missing code, a missing mathematician, and a missing agent. Can NCIS and the FBI find them before it's too late?
[=[[reviews:EachOthersBack]]=]

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/7062994/1/For-Meritorious-Service-a-JAG-NCIS-Story ...For Meritorious Service – A JAG-NCIS Story]]'' by TnJAGAz
* Recommended by ricjac
* ''Synopsis'': Crossover with ''Series/{{JAG}}''. Disturbing events in Iraq in 2003, and at home as well, leads to a joint JAG-NCIS investigation. The plot is set in early season 9 of JAG and pre season 1 of NCIS.
* ''Comment'': This one of the most well written JAG fanfics out there: a truly great combination of an engaging storyline, attention to details, and with spot-on characterizations of all the JAG/NCIS characters in it. Although the JAG characters take center stage, the NCIS characters (first appearing in chapter 34) are given equally meticulous treatment. The ending is somewhat anti-climactic as it fails to resolve the multiple storylines in this epic tale and connecting the two verses.

''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/s/9018850/1/When-Worlds-Collide When Worlds Collide]]'' by ''[[http://www.fanfiction.net/u/4515429/elfinblue elfinblue]]''
* Recommended by secretlystephaniebrown
* ''Crossover with'': ''Series/{{Supernatural}}''
* ''Pairing'': None
* ''Synopsis'': "When a kidnapped Tony [=DiNozzo=] is rescued by legendary - and supposedly dead - serial killers Dean and Sam Winchester, the NCIS team takes over the Winchester investigation. What they find is a file filled with contradictions and impossibilities."
* ''Comments'': The greatest NCIS/SPN Crossover that I've ever seen. The characters interact fluidly, everyone is perfectly in character, and the author manages to provide reasonable explanations for the NCIS to come up with instead of the more supernatural answers.
[=[[reviews:WhenWorldsCollide]]=]

''[[https://www.fanfiction.net/s/7279880/1/Abby-s-Diable Abby's Diable]]'' by Scorpio71
* Recommended by: KomodoClassic
* ''Crossover with'': ''Franchise/X-Men''
* ''Synopsis'': Five times that Abby Sciuto met Remy LeBeau. And one time that she didn't.
