He he that was good and poor Tony, hmm so senior is in a hospital or nursing home somewhere and he had had a stroke or something that incapacitated him? Tony and nice papa bear Gibbs as usual

Nice take on the whole 'where the crap is Senior?' I don't think I've ever seen this idea for why he wasn't there.
But I do like the last line as well. *grins*

Loved the ending

I've enjoyed all of your NCIS stories, they just keep getting better. I love the way you show the caring, mentor/friendship between Gibbs and DiNozzo with details like Gibbs giving Tony "the Butler did it" at the end of the story, and ordering the Chinese food. Please let me know if I can help with the story you're working on, I definitely want you to keep writing when you have the time!

You know, I don't know how I feel about Tony's relationship with his father, since nothing on the show has really confirmed in my mind that he was abused (some things suggest it, but there MIGHT be plausible explanations, if the writers work hard enough). There are a ton of good pieces out there where Tony's Dad is the bad guy (I think you might have written a few of those; I guess I'll find out as I attempt to go through your stories submitting the reviews you deserved and failed to get from me), but I like that you chose to explore and post one where his Dad wasn't the bad guy.
As always, you did an excellent job keeping Tony and Gibbs so in-character, and I loved it. Thanks for posting it, even after retirement. (

Oh wow. Another Richefic story! I pulled it up into a separate window in my browser and waited for a day when I really needed it.
It didn't disappoint. Even if it IS a recovered older story and not an indication that you have come back from Hiatus in Mexico, I still really needed it.
It's just wonderful, so comfortable and familiar in it's take on Gibbs/Tony and such a delicate delineation of the developing relationship as the years passed. An interesting and very unusual take on Tony's dad and what happened between them. Heartbreaking in how it depicts Tony's attempts to maintain some connection with the man he remembers from his early childhood. Heartening in how it depicts his connection with his surrogate father and how Gibbs feels parental toward Tony. And a wonderful touch at the end, a needed bit of humor that leaves us feeling all warm and comfy despite the essentially sad topic.
I am... familiar with difficult anniversaries. I hope that sharing this with us eased it for you somewhat. My condolences. And, of course, I will continue to leave you on author alert should you find any more buried gems. Take care of yourself.

Thanks! It was very, very nice surprise to see you coming back with another story. As usual, that was equally good like other your stories. I really enjoyed reading. Thank you again!

wow, completely and utterly different to any DiNozzo Jnr/Snr story i have ever read. i'm impressed with the way you wound it into canon, little snippets here and there. Tony's emotions and feelings were very well portrayed, and i particularly enjoyed the Gibbs-DiNozzo rapport. u've painted such a different picture of Snr. i actually feel sorry for him
very sad, and very well done. xx
