What an amazing read! This has it all, between the excellent case fic and thoughtfully executed exploration of the emotions surrounding Tim's actions and reactions, and also the burgeoning relationship between Tim and Tony.
Season 14 concluded last night, prior to my reading of the last few chapters of this incredible story. I shivered a bit at the end of episode when Tim's courage, bravery and selflessness were highlighted; this story suddenly seemed prescient.
I have been a Tibbs shipper ever since I belatedly discovered NCIS (rectified now by having all available seasons on DVD) and started reading in this fandom. Stories like this, however, make me realize there's room in my shippy little heart for McNozzo/T2 as well. You kept both of them firmly in character and believable...and it worked fantastically well. This was an absolute to joy to read, and I thank you for sharing it. Now I must be off to find more McStories's McStories in which to lose myself for a bit! :D

Searching out some new (to me) NCIS stories and found this in a roundabout way. I have been a Tibbs shipper forever...but recently, via some other stories, started to appreciate McNozzo, aka T2.
Though I normally wait to comment until I've reached the end of a completed work, I had to pipe up here lest I forget to mention it later. You offered up, for me, a spectacular study of Abby as seen through Tony's eyes in this chapter. I like Abby...but, as the seasons have gone on, she seems to have become (imho) increasingly self-centered and needy, though she cares very much about everyone on the team. You highlighted an aspect of her personality here that I find grating at times: her unswerving belief that she knows everyone inside and out- and that she knows what's best for them. You had Tony put her in her place in a caring way...but also in a way that left no room for misinterpretation...and it was masterful. Brava!

Was hoping for a more...McNozzo ending like but i'm glad its a happy one at least.

Absolutely amazing. If I'm being honest, which I am, I felt like I was reading an actual NCIS episode and not just some writer's plot. While a bit graphic, I can respect that and I just have to say that this was an incredible read. Kudos!

Tony's delight in that assignment is soooooo adorable.
"like he had to have dad's approval but couldn't stop fucking up long enough to get it"
Such an accurate description *sadface*
"Secrets are poison"
So true. But I'm simultaneously kinda proud of Tony for choosing his place to stand, and to Gibbs for respecting that.

This first chapter has sucked me in.

I know this is late, but I just have to say that THIS is everything that great hurt-comfort and great fanfiction should be... loved every word.

As a committed Gibbs fangirl I just want to say that I pretty much adore Gibbs throughout this chapter, being all laconic and rolling his eyes and just all, you know, GIBBS :3 and this story overall? Fantastic. Kudos :D

"Stupid ginger bastard had no idea what he was in for."
Now that is a PERFECT end of chapter line if I ever saw one.

"So I said...something dumb, you know, something like that me not enjoying it wasn't going to be a problem, but if he really wanted me to suffer he'd turn me over so I had to look at his ugly face while he was getting his rocks off."
Awww, so proud of our Probie right now, I tell ya. (I know it's just fanfic and he's not real anyway but I don't care, I am proud :3)
"It was brand new, despite him feeling like he'd been married to Tim for the last five years."
"Tim had the kind of bravery that let him be himself despite taking abuse for just that."
"But we're going to be happy, Tony. We're going to laugh all the time and fuck like teenagers and watch each other's backs, and we'll be so fucking happy."
CLIFFHANGER EVILNESS glad I'm not reading in real time...

I don't know if it was deliberate, but I immediately imagined "Anders" as being played by Michael Trucco and had a BSG fangirl moment, JSYK ;)
"I'd settle for the isn't-he-adorable end of the apathy pool."

I think I'm probably one of the minority in that I tend to read slash despite smut, not because of it ;p because an awful lot of the M/M smut I read just... well I didn't even bother with trying slash for the longest time because it all read like generic porn and it made me cringe, and it took finding a couple of actual decent writers of it to convert me. This, however, was in character (bliss!) and very hot and rather sweet and occasionally funny all at the same time, which is my kind of smut regardless of who's getting it on with whom. I thought Tony's overwhelmedness was funny and rather adorable, and I've always assumed that Tim being less than obviously confident would probably mean he would put a lot of effort in between the sheets, and that the fact he could actually keep up with Abby said a lot, so I can totally buy intensity being the name of his game ;)

"Might want to take that inside, Tim. This is a respectable neighborhood, they don't understand your kind of love."
I love how you're bringing Jethro into this :3
Also, Tony's mental note about having a change of clothes reminds me of the time he had to wear Ducky's spare NCIS outfit LOLOLOLOLOL
Well done Gibbs for giving Tim the necessary headslap ;D
I know there are still five chapters so I'm biting my tongue waiting for disaster, but I like that Gibbs is enlisting all the help he can to keep them safe.

*snort* that whole scene by the computer was soooooo adorable and then Abby *snort* you just know she would *unladylike sniggers*
