NCIS is a live-action TV series by Donald P. Bellisario about a fictional Naval Criminal Investigative Services Major Case Response Team based in the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. The team investigates major criminal offenses (murders, kidnappings, terrorist threats) involving the United States Navy and Marine Corps. The show is currently in its 10th season. There is a small NCIS wiki.
NCIS is driven primarily by its characters and the often-humorous dynamics between the members of the team. Thus, badfic that throws characters OOC or mucks with the team dynamics is particularly heinous, and agents should be aware of the same.

Strong male characters such as Gibbs and Tony tend to be woobiefied and/or set up with Mary Sues; strong female characters are often ignored or turned into Stock Antagonistic Feminists. Intelligence has also noted a rash of spanking!fic in this fandom, in which one male character (usually Gibbs) decides that another male character (Tony or McGee) needs to be "disciplined" like a bratty child.
Original characters that are the Mary Sue offspring of the canon characters are quite popular. Another popular badfic plot involves one of the canons, usually DiNozzo, being seriously injured and another of the canons, usually Gibbs, playing nursemaid in medically dubious to outright life-threatening ways, especially involving the avoidance of or criminally negligent delay in use of Emergency Rooms and in forcing Ducky to treat the injuries at (usually) Gibbs' house.
Another common template of badfic involves impassioned declarations of Twu Wuv following a near-death experience. Unfortunately, there have been near-death experiences of all kinds on the show already and none of them have prompted anything like a wedding proposal. At all.
Missions in this Continuum
All reports are listed alphabetically by agent name, in the case of agents with multiple missions, or by mission name.
Agents Specialized in this Continuum
Agents are considered specialized in a continuum when they have handled at least three missions in the canon. Most of these agents are also active/specialized in other continua. It is often not the agents who decide where their specialty lies, but the Flowers that keep assigning missions to them.

Agents Not Yet Specialized in this Continuum
Agents with fewer than three missions in this continuum are not specialized, yet. They probably soon will be.
