[This man who was holding her lightly in a candlelit room, who was being so charming, was actually a cold-blooded killer, regardless of his intentions.] — bloody took you long enough to realise, Kate...!
And then they make up...? Just like that? That was quick!
Love the story, it certainly brought out some emotions in me :)

Blah blah on the blah chapter
Bwahahahaha thanks that cracked me up.
I forgot to mention another, to me, absolutely magic Kibbs moment - when she's sleeping behind her desk in Twilight and he covers her up with a jacket and then smooths it down over her. There's just something so tender and beautiful in that scene... It's definitely one of the things that makes me a die hard Kibbs shipper.
Awww the little sub was so cute! And a gesture I could imagine Gibbs making, which oftentimes when people write Gibbs being romantic, it's hard to buy it because he gets too, too sappy.
"Everything was back to normal.
That really made me smile! I enjoyed this a lot :-)

"But I am. You haven't spoken two words to Gibbs since those flowers came, and he's been pissier than usual. This is how he was after divorce number three, and I really don't want to go back to that, Kate. It wasn't a pleasant place to be."
Awww Tony showing his often well disguised heart and concern for his teammates. Love.
"Ducky still wanted the man's liver."
I'm so glad I know NCIS well enough to get the reference, I can't help giggling, it makes him sound a bit like Hannibal Lecter!

Gibbs' reactions to Kate being held hostage, the fact he dreamed about her being dead, and his reactions when Ari killed her (not to mention the fact that Ari was clearly a perceptive man, so that he went after Kate first says a lot), plus the idea of him leaving flowers on the rooftop for her, are pretty much what make me think there was more going on there. Most things can be brushed off to some extent, explained away, but those things? They're hard to argue away. So I really, really love that you used those details to paint a picture of his feelings towards her :-)
My only tiny niggle is that I don't see Gibbs as the screaming sort - he always seems at his most dangerous when he's speaking in that ominous near whisper. But that's, like, one bum note (and very much a YMMV one at that) in four chapters! Loving this.
I always smile in Terminal Leave when Tony is describing someone and Kate responds "like a female Gibbs" and it turns out Tony is talking about Kate. I think she's more like Gibbs than she knows, and Ari saw it, too. I love the two parallel exchanges with Ari about guns. Love that you used that to bookend the chapter!

"Kate watched something flit across Gibbs face; it was so fleeting she couldn't be sure, but Kate could have sworn it was jealousy."
Of COURSE it was, Kate! And my evil/shipper/romantic (not sure which is most appropriate) loves Gibbs being reminded of the dream and having a minor panic.
He stopped. "You know me."
"Sometimes," she quipped, but he ignored her.
Hahah I loved this little joke from Kate soooo much...
And I pretty much love anything from Sub Rosa :-D

"This time, it was perfect, and not too strong like last time."
I love the conversation that you referenced, and LOVED that he make sure to have it be perfect this time.
"Unlike DiNozzo, who not only started the conversation, but would carry it on himself if no one else joined, and not stop unless forced to."
Hahaha that's a perfect description of Tony, bless him!
I adore when Gibbs teases Kate or vice versa.
Excited to read on...

Absolutely loved this story! I was sad to see it come to an end.
| LisaG chapter 1 . 3/12/2008
Oh yeah...and I adored the little submarine Gibbs left for Kate...nice touch!
| LisaG chapter 6 . 3/12/2008
Ha! That was a fun ride! I'm just glad Kate wised up...Ari was so creepy! Much better to have that sexy silver fox after you! :P
