For NCIS & Ziva centric fans only. Or for people who wants to read some crap >.<
Its hard keeping up long distance relationships, but it’s almost impossible to keep up a very large friendship group when they were all split up in different parts of the world, and no one knew that better then the Ace Gang.
Ziva David, Tali David, Ali David, Ari Haswari, Natasha Haswari, Shmuel Rubinstein, Abraham Cole, Aaron Spike, Lauralie Gilmore, Christopher Hayden, Michael Rivkin, Zachery David-Addy, Ryan James, Ashley James, Chad Cooper, Sandra Long, Sam Long, Oliver Todd and Shina Coholan all knew how hard it was.
Chris, Lauralie, Oliver, Ryan, Ashley and Chad all lived in America. Chad, Ryan and Ashley had only joined the group when they were 11, when they met Ziva, Zach (cousins), Sam and Sandy (twins) on a train to one of the finest music schools in the world, Lisa Clarks Academy of Performing Arts, 11 to 17.
Lauralie’s mother was a close friend of Ziva, Ali and Tali’s mother, while Chris’s father was an old classmate of Sam and Sandy’s father, leaving them as close friends of their children.
The Israeli’s had all been friends for years, however. Ali, Ari, Ziva, Natasha, Zach and Tali were all David's, Sandy and Sam happened to of been born four days after Ziva did, and as the Longs and David's were also neighbours, they were all good friends.
Though eight of them spent half of their time in England, half of that eight spent another quarter in America, and all the leftovers were in Israel, they had all managed to stay together to this day.
But none of it had been easy.
You could say that the pain had started when Abraham had died. It was never easy, living in Israel. The suicide bombing that had killed Abe was one of the many that had come in the past months, but there had still been pain, in all the Ace’s.
Ziva felt the hurt most. She was definitely the one who had been closest to Abraham, and the pain wasn’t something any twelve year old girl should experience. It had taken many weeks for Ziva to heal enough to go back out side. She wouldn’t laugh with the Ace’s, but then, none of them had laughed at all since Abe had died.
Slowly, they began to get better. It was a hard trip for all of them, at their young ages (Ari, at 14, was the oldest of the group), but they got through eventually, realising that their close friend hadn’t left them, as long as they just let him in. Many of them had sworn many times that they could hear Abe’s cheerful laugh as they all joked together.
It went quite well, really, for the next couple of years. Ziva, Sandy, Sam, Ashley, Ryan and Chad had formed a band, “The Dreamers and Believers” and them, along with Oliver and Zach, were making magical music for the whole school in London, writing weekly to every member of the Ace Gang, and spending every moment possible together during their breaks.
But, during that time, there was one, small, small problem.
Ziva and Sam had started dating, and the Ace Gang had a rule: “Don’t date an Ace. It won’t work and the rest of us will be split down the middle.”
The rule had been made after Laurie and Chris had a child when they were 16, and no one had heard from Chris since.
The D&B and Zack and Oliver were most worried, because they had a close up view of what was going on. But their other friends they had made really couldn’t see what the problem was. Sam and Ziva were regularly seen doing homework together in the Library, writing songs in the Boddington House Music Room, or making out in every room they could get into.
The rest of the Ace Gang got together one spring break, and decided that they should just let Ziva and Sam get on with it. They were so close already the only difference between now and 5 years ago was the fact that they were kissing a lot.
Soon, the Dreamers and Believers were off to college. To be more specific, Julliard University. Meanwhile, following Sam and Ziva’s lead, several Ace’s began to date and sleep with each other.
Natasha and Shmuel where an item, Shina and Ari where now an item, and Ali and Sandy were happily engaged by that time.
Sam, Ziva, Sandy and Ali all lived in an apartment in NYC. Ziva, and the twins dashing in and out of their home, back and forth from school, while Ali, a workaholic Mossad Officer, continued to do the top secret ops with everyone BUT the Longs and Ziva, who were too busy with school to work with their fathers in Mossad.
Then, just days after Ziva and the twins had celebrated their 20th birthdays, Sandy discovered she was pregnant.
It was a bit more work then, Sandy was forced to cut back A LOT on her studies to prepare for the baby, but all she really had to do was do research on how to raise a kid, feeding/teething ect., because Ziva had turned into “Super Aunt”. Most mornings she returned from her jog laden with plastic bags filled with baby clothes (once they had had the ultra sound and discovered it was a girl) and toys. She let the parents do some of the shopping and most of the picking out, but Ziva was determined to make this kid happy.
It wasn’t easy though. Eli and Sarah, and Peter and Diana were all shocked at the idea of their children having a baby out of wedlock, and several times Peter had demanded Sandy to get the kid removed, but she wouldn’t budge.
After prodding and poking from the rest of their children and the Ace Gang, the grandparents reluctantly gave in, but it was a close one.
Then, once again, tragedy struck. When Sandy was on her eight month of pregnancy, Tali, who was sixteen, was bombed. A local shopping mall had been hit, while Tali was trying to find a dress for her new niece.
It was still a hard hit to the head for the Ace Gang, but around the time Sandy went into labour, they were over the grieving, and was celebrating Talia’s happy life.
Ziva Caitlin David was born at precisely 2:00am, 22 of July, 1983.
She looked so much like her aunty Ziva it wasn’t funny. The Ace Gang swooned over the new baby, happy to have something so little and helpless once more.
Many years past since . . . and things have changed.
Sam and Ziva are friends once again, acting so normal around each other it’s a surprise to some that they ever dated at all.
Ali and Sandy had 3 more children, twin 8 year olds, Destiny Kelly and Abigail Shannon, and a five year old, Olivia Talia.
Shmuel and Natasha had also had four, all adopted, Hasmina, 18, twins, Michael and Eli, 14, and Talia, 7.
Oliver Todd was brought his first real pain, when his younger sister, Kate died. It was such a shock to relies, that his best friend, Ari Haswari, the Joker of the Ace Gang, had killed her.
Ziva may have dreamed of being a world famous singer, but instead she grew on to be a Mossad Bad-Ass Ninja. She was sent to NCIS, where Kate Todd had worked, to smooth things out.
Eventually, due to feelings and reason’s that Ziva couldn’t and wouldn’t explain, she ended up killing Ari, just seconds before he was about to shoot Kate’s old boss, Leroy Jethro Gibbs, to death.
This act scored Ziva a place on Gibbs’s team, alongside computer geek Timothy McGee, and big shot movie lover, Anthony “Tony” DiNozzo.
More pain came on after that, mainly from Mossad, who wanted Ziva back. Director David was angry that his daughter had moved on, and was the cause of half the pain that came with NCIS. Losing her good friend Jenny, for instance.
Michael and Ziva, alarmingly, started sleeping together. This went on for about a year, then Michael was caught up in an NCIS investigation, and when Michael, who had been drinking, resisted arrest from Ziva’s partner, Tony, Tony had killed him.
This lead to a lot a pain for the Ace Crew. Michael was dead, and Ziva, enraged at Tony and full of remorse, went on a Op in Somalia, Africa, and was kidnapped.
After four months of worrying from NCIS and the Ace Gang, Team Gibbs found her and brought her home. She told the tail of her father making her go, then leaving her to die there to the Ace Gang, who all swore to not talk to Eli again unless completely necessary.
But, surprisingly, the Ace Gang is still there. Still laughing, all happy now that they are all in America. D&B still playing around with the songs that had caused them such popularity and laughter at the LCA.
They are still there. Living. And no one knows of what could happen in the future. . What would become of the Mini Ace’s . . . How long Ziva would survive NCIS . . . But that, unfortunately, is another story.
