Proof that the remaining 10% is worth dying for here:

These are recommendations made by Tropers for JAG, all of which have been signed. After a few samples, you will be able to judge whether you might be interested in the 'fic, based on who recommended it. No-name recommendations will be zapped. Nobody would back up the rec. Discussion of the recommendation is welcome on the discussion page. As such discussion is important, do remember to add the discussion page to the watchlist, if need be.


Do warn when a fanfic may head into sexual or non-canon territory. Some people just don't like it, and as we all know, Shipping is Serious Business.

Stories focused on the family and the friendly relationships of the cast. Plot-focused stories or light day-in-the-life stories. Pretty much anything that isn't focused on romance.

  • 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. The bantering and UST between Harm and Mac is particularly well done. A favorite scene of this troper is when Chegwidden meets Clark Palmer at Fort Leavenworth showing off what a badass he really is, both mentally and physically. Although the JAG characters take center stage, the NCIS characters are given equally meticulous treatment. As in later seasons of JAG, there are many references to canon events, but here it is supplemented by appearances of surprisingly many minor canon characters. While many technical aspects; particularly with respect to federal government organizations, and domestic law enforcement procedures not up on a Tom Clancy level of detail (military hardware excluded); it stays on the same 90 per cent accuracy level as the canon material does, unlike most other fanfics. The ending is somewhat anti-climactic as it fails to resolve the multiple storylines in this epic tale and connecting the two parallel verses. The last chapter is also somewhat disappointing as it strays into shippers AU territory, although one of the parings is quite original.
