but shows tony being there for ziva


For anon…enjoy!

“So, I might be able to stop by,” your boyfriend stated over the phone.
“Really?” you asked in surprise, “Are you sure your boss won’t mind?”
You could hear his smile through the phone. “That’s actually why I’m in town.”
“You’re already in town?” you chittered.
“Yeah. Driving to work right now, actually.”
Tony, your coworker, drove over a speed bump. “Ow!”
“What? What’s wrong?”
“Nothing, Spence. My idiot coworker decided to speed over a speed bump.”

You smacked Tony’s chest from the passenger seat. He smirked while raising a brow. You rolled your eyes. You realized how close you were to the crime scene.

“I have to go,” you told Spencer, “I’ll call later so we can meet up.”
“Of course,” he agreed before whispering, “I love you.”

You smiled softly before remembering your coworkers were in the same car.

“You too,” you stated shortly, “I’ll see you later.”

With that, you hung up. Feeling Tony and Ziva’s stares on you made you sigh.

“You seeing someone, Y/N?” Tony teased.
You clenched your jaw to hide the blush. “Shut up, DiNozzo.”
Ziva laughed. “He’s incapable.”
“I’m just curious about this ‘Spence’ you were talking to,” the man defended, “Nothing wrong with learning a little about each other’s personal lives.”

You and Ziva shared a devious glance. She leaned forward, arching a brow.

“Is that so, Tony?”
The man nodded. “Yeah. It’s like learning each others favorite colors.”
“So,” you began to drawl, “you wouldn’t mind sharing where you sprinted off to last night?”
“More like leapt,” Ziva chimed.
Tony swallowed, parking the car. “Oh look, we’re here.”

20 Reasons Why Ziva David Is Alive

This is the list I mentioned earlier of 20 reasons I have of why I firmly believe Ziva is alive. This does get lengthy and some of you may completely disagree what I’ve said but please stick with me through it!

  1. Ziva David has been taken hostage, escaped Somalia, been close to death countless times and is a trained assassin that can catch things thrown at her in her sleep. No way would Ziva die in her sleep while her home with her daughter in it burned.
  2. We know that Ziva was in contact with Orli and by extension Mossad. Mossad knew she was a target from Jacob Scott trying to locate her because let’s face it, there is nothing that they don’t know plus she’s the daughter of a previous Mossad director. If Orli was as close to Ziva as she said she was Ziva would have known she was a target before Kort ever knew himself.
  3. The thing about Tali sleeping in a separate wing of the farm house. Tali is a young infant so why would Ziva sleep so far away from her daughter? It makes no sense.
  4. Tali was meant to have been ‘pulled’ from the rubble and yet there she was 24 hours (or so) later with not a scratch on her. Even if her bedroom wasn’t harmed in the fire she still would have been treated for smoke inhalation especially being a child her age. 
  5. How does a child that small survive mortar fire when her grown mother doesn’t? Ducky himself said that the house was reduced to nothing so even if Tali was in a different wing, nothing was safe from the blaze.
  6. THERE WAS NO BODY! Not once did they ever show us physical evidence that Ziva’s body was found in that house.Maybe I’ve been watching NCIS for too long but I firmly believe ‘no body, no proof’.
  7. Orli didn’t answer Tony’s question when he asked her if Mossad were sure it was Ziva. She made no attempt to emphasise that they had indeed found Ziva, infact she didn’t seem that convinced herself. Orli herself isn’t exactly known for being truthful and neither is Mossad.
  8. Tali’s bag was packed as if Ziva knew that their daughter would be with Tony soon, not just a casual everyday baby bag with essentials. Why would her daughter’s favourite toy be put into it unless Tali and the bag were being moved elsewhere because she knew her house was in danger of being destroyed?
  9. THE PARIS PHOTO IN THE BAG! That photo was framed and looked pretty damn big to be a photo that is constantly carried around in Tali’s everyday baby bag. Maybe a small photo of Tali’s Abba yes, but a framed photo of the two of them together from an intimate time they shared together? No way. That photo was placed there for a reason.
  10. The photo itself, a photo of Paris. Paris was a significant moment in the relationship of Ziva and Tony, a place with memories of specific places and times. Not just a photo of Tony but of the two of them abroad in a city where the places they went are known only to them. Clearly that photo had hidden meanings.
  11. Ziva has used photos before in order to give Tony hints to her location. Remember her last two episodes with the photo of her as a child leading back to Eli’s house? Ziva would never be as stupid as to leave a clear message with her location because how could she know that the threat on her life (and by extension Tali’s) had been neutralised? She left clues that only Tony would understand.
  12. Ziva’s scarf in the bag was last seen when Ziva was on the run. ANOTHER SIGN!
  13. If that bag was in the house and pulled out the rubble, whether in the main part or the random wing where Tali supposedly was, that bag would be covered in soot and ash and not packed neatly with Ziva’s scent still on the scarf! It was all too neat and organised so everything would be found by Tony and Senior too.
  14. GIBBS’S FREAKING INDIFFERENCE TOWARDS ZIVA DYING! This pissed me off so much at first because Ziva was his daughter, his Ziver and he acted like her dying meant nothing to him but then I realised that Gibbs knows Ziva. He knows how strong and smart she is. He doesn’t believe she’s dead otherwise he never would have acted like that. Gibbs was majorly OOC but I believe there was a reason for that.
  15. The constant referring to Ziva in the present tense! I get that people going through grief maybe would do this but the things that were said were too significant.
  16. “We have a daughter, me and Ziva”
  17. “Ziva loves Paris”
  18. “You gotta believe what you gotta believe” - This was so signficant because everyone believes she’s dead except those closest to her and know her.
  19. Also, Tony is taking Tali to ‘find answers’. He addresses the fact that a body was never recovered, there is no evidence to prove she died in that blaze. Tony recognised the subtle meanings of the scarf (Israel) and of the photo (Paris) and is following them because that’s where Ziva will be.
  20. Gary Glasberg told us to watch the episode carefully hinting at hidden meanings and if these aren’t hidden meanings then I don’t know what is. And lastly, GG the man who single handedly sent the fandom into meltdown by letting everyone think that our ninja was killed in that fire has all but confirmed that she is infact alive. Keep in mind that this guy is known for his random plotlines and contradictions.

Sorry for the length and ramblings but I will never stop believing our Israeli ninja assassin is alive and well and waiting on Tony and Tali finding her. Because this is Ziva, who would know if she was a target and knows how to handle herself.

Headcanon - Being married to Tony

-You would be his best friend as well as his spouse

-He would talk about you or bring you up in conversation all.the.time

-It would annoy both McGee and Ziva, but they would be happy that Tony was happy, they just wouldn’t say it out loud

-You would be friends with the whole team, and they would always “joke” that they liked you more than Tony

-You would often talk to Gibbs anytime you were worried about Tony, and he would listen and give advice

-Abby would be one of your closest friends and you two would often gossip a lot and Tony would always be paranoid that you were talking about him

-Tony would have a hard time leaving you in the morning, he just loved lying in bed with you

-But when he got home he would yell “Honey, I’m home!”


-He would only every show his really passionate and sweets side to you

-But Ziva and McGee would catch him sometimes and tease him about being so sweet to you

-Tony would probably get jealous easily, not a angry kind of jealous though, it would be the childish kind

-It was charming in it’s own weird way

-But you would always make sure he knew that he was the only one for you and that you loved him

-He would be SO romantic

-He would love to reenact the cheesy stuff from movies. Like roses trailing down the hall leading to a candle lit dinner

-He would also buy you flowers all the time, for no special occasion

-Tony’s sense of humor would always leaving you rolling your eyes, but laughing at the same time

-He loved your laugh, it made him smile

-Anytime he was in danger, the only thing he would think about that would keep him fighting was the idea of never making it back home to you

-He would NEVER let that happen. He would ALWAYS make it back to you.

Requested by anon

this could be me being delusional since i’ve (very clearly) fallen back down the rabbit hole but…

honestly? it wouldn’t shock me if on the last ever episode of ncis it was revealed that when tony went to paris with tali after he resigned they found ziva, and they got married and now have more kids…

they deserve their happy ending, and it wouldn’t shock me if the writers gave that to us in the last ever episode, even if it was just one of the other characters mentioning it and them not physically showing it

anonymous asked:

SWAK has always been one of my favorite NCIS episodes, but I wish it had would up in a later season rather than the 2nd one, especially because I would have loved to see Ziva in Kate’s place when Tony was sick. What do you think their dynamic would have been like there if that episode had fallen in season 9 or 10 when everything was going so well for Tiva?

I think if it had happened in that context then I would not be currently alive and answering this ask, anon. Because the way Cote/Michael would have played that scene and the feels from Ziva being there with Tony as he slowly coughed his life away would have fucking legit killed me dead.

Think about when his car blew up. Now multiply that times 50. I think, honest to goodness, at this point in time, Ziva would have been a Mess. A pure and absolute Mess. I don’t know if she would have been able to hold back, despite how damn good at it she was.

(Let the record show that she would have promised him certain death for taking the goddamn envelope in the first place when all was said and done because how dare you make me watch you almost die so painfully like that)

Oh dude. There is so much wealth here. I want to hope that Ziva would stay with him the way Kate did. But I think as soon as she was cleared from illness she would have run around and tore heaven and hell apart herself to find who did this and make them pay. For hurting her Tony. (Yes, her Tony.) And then when they got whoever it was, she’d have busted her fucking way back into quarantine to be like, “Okay, we got the bitch, now you have to get better because you’re not fucking dying, okay?”

And he’d be like, “Idk if I can make that promise” and she’d threaten him with more death if he didn’t live lol. But underneath that you’d see the true care in her gaze, the way she looks at him with worry, fear, and (of course) love, and the way he knows all this and appreciates her way of covering her tracks because he also knows that she’s still not secure enough to voice these feelings, even in these circumstances. But late at night, when she thinks he’s asleep - the coughing has subsided for a short time and his eyes are closed, his breathing is raspy but even, and she’s crying softly, tears rolling down her cheeks, her hand grasping his, and she begs him not to die because (she chokes on a sob and draws in a shaky breath)… she loves him, and she wishes she could have said it before.

(And he does hear her, because who sleeps with the plague?) (But he keeps that to himself, because this is enough for now, and it’s…) Wait, why is he reaching his hand to cup her cheek, his eyes opening slowly and a weak smile on his face? Because in my world, they don’t silently pine over each other and they admit how they fucking feel, dammit.

And can you imagine that moment? Her momentary panic that he’d heard coupled with her relief at his acceptance, that it’s out there? His silent understanding? The gaze they’d share as the weight of her words washes over the both of them?

And then Gibbs or Ducky (tbh I can’t remember) bursts in and says the disease will die out on its own and Tony can probably recover and their eyes widen and now they will have to deal with this and…

Okay yes, I would kill for this anon. Thanks.


- I loved her, Tim.
- I know you did.


(And we’re not even done this episode yet.)

Ugh, Tony.

He just sounds (and looks) like he’s aged 30 years overnight. Like the weight of the world is on his shoulders with that confession.

And while he’s seemed… defeated in this whole conversation, there was that brief moment of levity when he admitted that yes, Tali did happen the good ol’ fashioned way. But then he’s brought back down to earth, because he can’t even really joke about Ziva being just another dalliance.

Because Ziva wasn’t like the others.

Because he loved Ziva.

And he did for a long time before PPF, and evidently has ever since. We’ve known it, and he’s hinted at it in the last three seasons, but finally, for the first time, Tony actually says the words.

Which would have been a lot better directed at Ziva, but we’re not allowed to have nice things, and neither is anyone on this show.

Just like Ziva’s love confession in PPF, Tony’s is also tinged with so much sadness behind the sentiment. Because she loved him but didn’t think she could have him, and he loved her but now can’t have her anymore either.

And I feel like it’s also an admission by Tony that those feelings always ran deeper and were always complicated. “I loved her, Tim” – even amidst the workplace flirtations and stakeout arguments and separations and reunions, he loved her. So he’s not going to “kiss and tell,” because she wasn’t like everyone else, and his feelings for her weren’t like they were for everyone else.

Which we all knew, but at least, now, so does the rest of the world.

Excuse me I need a minute.

anonymous asked:

also re: Tony and Ziva being a weird ship, it’s not like they were like Garcia and Morgan from criminal minds who flirted in every episode because they never got together romantically or sexually either but they clearly knew and stated multiple times that while they loved each other deeply and flirted like crazy they were just amazingly best friends and the fans knew that even if a lot of us shipped them

I find it’s very hard for many shows to be able to accomplish the “best friends in love” trope for many, many seasons. The show I’ve seen do it best was The X Files. It may have felt different for fans who watched it while it aired, though. Regardless, Mulder and Scully had such a strong connection and chemistry that nothing could even touch it. The show hardly had to address it. You simply saw it through their actions. I never felt like, “Just get together already,” because they kind just…were. It’s hard to explain if you’ve never seen The X Files. (Shoutout to any followers that do watch it!)

How to understand what NCIS haters say ;)

There’s haters in every fandom, that’s nothing new. Fangirls/boys and casual viewers and and and. Everyone has a favorite, a least favorite, and so on.

In the wild life, animals use a certain tactic: even tho they’re generally a quite small number they’re very vocal and loud. For wild animals it’s a mechanism for their defence. And we all have seen how haters are: vocal in a hateful manner which is hard to find the real interpretation for.

I found a post from a different fandom a while ago and couldn’t stop thinking about it. Now I’ll do something similar with the statements from NCIS haters.

Keep reading

Do you know what’s killing my shipper heart? Tony so openly showing his emotions about Ziva to everyone around him. I mean, we’ve seen him display concern before, his love for her in his actions and he’s showed and told Ziva herself, and we know everyone knows despite it never really being said. But him telling his dad he’s a wreck, tearing up in the bullpen and saying that he can’t stay, it’s one of my Tiva fantasies to have these feelings explicitly shown and heard by others and it’s happening and I’m not sure what to do with these feelings.


Abby: Thoughts?
McGee: Well, Tony’s never mentioned her before, but Bishop’s right. I’ve never seen him act like that around someone since–
Bishop: What?
Abby and McGee: It’s complicated.


Let me just say that as much as the post-season 10 era hurts as a Ziva/Tiva fan, one thing I will give the show is that it’s allowing all the characters to “grieve” her departure, but more importantly, in her absence, it’s actually acknowledging what she meant to the characters, and specifically, Tony.

Like, when Ziva was still on the show, we got the teasing moments and the unspoken confessions of love and the pining and everything else, but, on-screen at least, they danced around the subject explicitly. Everything was coded into “friends” and “couldn’t live without you I guess” and “you are so loved” etc. We could infer lots of things from their glances and their double-entendres, but due to the constraints of the story and structure, everything had to remain between the lines at best.

But now that she’s left, it’s like they’re all allowed to finally voice what her role was, specifically to Tony. (Which makes it all the more difficult to swallow that they teased it for so long on the show but never followed through, since the aftermath we’re dealing with ends up being exactly that, but that’s another post.) Because they’re all acting as though this wasn’t just another friend who moved away, not to him. Everyone is treating her departure as a breakup, because everyone saw their relationship as more than friends. Complicated, yes, absolutely, but they all know that whatever was going on between Tony and Ziva, it was more than being just pals. And they know that that’s the reason Tony  hasn’t had his heart into the whole dating scene – because he’s still reeling from the aftermath of whatever happened in Israel the previous year. 

So maybe this isn’t the way I’d hoped we get here. (Okay, that’s an understatement.) But, at least the show hasn’t swept it under the rug. They’re allowing the characters to feel the consequences of their actions, and I feel that Tony’s arc in particular is very realistic. He’s been noticeably different since PPF (Hell, since the end of season 10, in another way), between his self-awareness and self-discovery and general subdued demeanor, and I really like that it’s clearly on purpose. 

I like that McGee and Abby notice it, and they know exactly why he is the way he is, but that they’ve let him kind of deal with it in his own way, too. 

Basically, this is essentially confirmed Tiva a whole season and a half before it’s actually confirmed and while this is obviously not the way I’d expected it, I guess you can’t always get what you want, but you get what you need?

Also: Remember when Tony told Gibbs nobody could ever say her name? It’s funny that a year later, that’s still the case, here, with these two. It’s just hard, you guys.


Ziva: You’re preaching to the symphony, Ducky.
Tony: Choir.
McGee: Leave her alone, Tony.
Ziva: It’s okay, McGee. I can handle him myself.
Tony: Yes she can.



I’m sorry




Look at how they can’t take their eyes off each other in the entire scene.

How they both have the heart eyes even when they’re bickering. How Tony’s heart isn’t even into the snarking because he’s so smitten and Ziva’s so gentle with him even though she could rip him a new one.

I’m sorry, but this is Confirmed Tiva to me right here. 

And since neither of them are on the show anymore I can believe whatever the hell I choose to thank you very much.

Whatever happened between the cabin and this scene, it was big, because there is a completely different vibe happening between them.


Guys, you know what this is?

It’s #married.

Also, shoutout to McGee for being a good brother and trying to stop Tony from picking on Ziva. Only he doesn’t know that this is basically their foreplay. (He’d be horrified if he knew.)

I may be in denial, but it is sure fun right now.


Where the explanation Orli gave for why Ziva didn’t tell Tony about Tali missed the mark the most for me wasn’t about the fact she didn’t want to burden Tony. I can absolutely accept that Ziva would have thought that, considering where she was at when we last saw her. 

It was the way Orli reminded him that she was an independent woman who didn’t need a man to raise Tali. The writing there upsets me so so much. It is an absolute disservice to both Tony and Ziva as characters. One, because I refuse to believe Ziva would have done it out of some motivation to show her independence and secondly, he would not have wanted to be in the picture because he thought she was unable to raise a child alone. Tony would have wanted to be there because he would want to share the experience of raising their daughter and being a family. And Ziva would have known that.

And yes, they sort of tried to remedy it by saying that Ziva came to regret not telling Tony sooner (meaning at least that she had planned to tell him) but I just wish it had been left at Ziva not wanting to burden Tony and then Orli handing over a letter that Ziva had written to Tony, should anything happen to her .

Chapter 14: Snow-Nozzos

“It’s really coming down,” Ziva remarks as she comes in the door, stomping her feet to get the snow off of her boots. Tony looks up from where he’s sitting coloring with Lena, a sheepish grin on his face as he puts down the pink crayon he’d been doodling with.

“Mama!” the girl shrieks, running to the front door where her mother is removing her scarf. She’d no sooner finished hanging it on the hook beside the door when Lena leaps into her arms, exclaiming, “Daddy’s drawin’ princesses!

“Is he now?” she murmurs in response, a smirk playing across her face as she turns to give her daughter a big smooch, her lips smacking loudly against Lena’s soft cheek. The girl squirms in her mother’s arms as she readies herself for another loud kiss attack, when she notices the white flakes on Ziva’s jacket.

“It’s snowing!” she squeals, wriggling free of her mother’s arms and sliding to the ground. She bends down to examine the melting puddles left behind by Ziva’s boots, and asks, “Can we play outside?”

“Why don’t you and Daddy get your coats on and go play?”

“Noooo!” she wails, adding, “You have to come too!

Here is what I’m thinking:

Season 14, episode 1  needs to end with Gibbs sitting at his desk after everyone has gone home for the night.. Like he’s finishing up paper work from the case or something, and he gets an email from Tony with a picture attached and the picture is Tony, Ziva and Taliyah smiling and being all cute and happy finally a family and all the sweet jazz. Then it shows Gibbs who is doing that famous smile/smirk that he does and it fades out to black and white.

I have been toying with the idea of writing a post about Tony and Zoe and my thinking about what this means if/when Ziva shows up again for however-long and I kept deciding not to because it’s nothing but pure speculation on my part really, but after watching this week’s ep I’ve decided I will. I want to talk a bit about the episode specifically in relation to Tony and where he’s at but also throw in my own thoughts/theories about where it’s all going. It’s under the read more so I’m sorry if you’re on a mobile device and have to scroll past it all.
