Excellent read great story telling...loved the take on Gibbs' and DiNozzo's early relationship and the bond that developed...not to mention the action and drama.

I enjoyed this story very, very much. Very suspenseful with just enough sharing of emotions between Gibbs and Tony to avoid being too sappy. Loved Tony's dialogue - always humor in the face of danger. You two are great writers individually and together. I admire your ability to put together believable plots. That's my biggest challenge in trying to write crime dramas. Anyway, I am looking forward to your next collaboration as well as individual stories.

Hey, I'm looking for a story that I read a couple of months ago, but I can't remember what its called. basically what happens is Director Morrow forced Gibbs to hire Tony 7 years ago, but Gibbs never told Tony. And then something happens(i forget what) and Tony is taken into FBI custody(i think) and they have to tell him Gibbs was forced to hire him. I forget what else happens, but i know Tony escapes from the FBI and it has something to do with his father. That's all I remember but if any of you know what it's called, i would greatly appreciate if you would let me know.

AMAZING story! Just blown away by the entire story and all the details! I just keep reading it over and over again! :) Perfect caption of all that is wonderful/special/heartwarming with these characters. It felt like I was reading the script to an episode! Thank you!

Well, I started reading this back when it was being published, but lost track of it thanks to RL. I'm finally catching up with my numerous alerts and got back into this story.
I started from the beginning again to remind myself what had happened at the start and I've just got to the end of a very gripping tale.
I love stories that focus on Gibbs and Tony and the close bond they share and without having the larger team in place, it allows even greater focus on their partnership.
I also love a good whump fic, especially if both our guys take the hits and just keep on going through sheer determination and stubbornness. They definitely had to use all their will power for this story! That was quite a lot of pain between their various tumbles off of cliffs, run-ins with bad guys and bullet wounds!
It's always fun to see Fornell and I liked the red herring about who the leak on his team was.
It's good to know that all the (living) bad guys will be going away for a long time and that Gibbs has a little more insight into what makes Tony tick.

Hi Lyn and Laine,
I'm late in offering a review but hope you will still receive this. I've read some of Laine's work before but this is the first of Lyn's stories - or rather of your collaborations - I've read, but it certainly won't be the last. I've read a lot of fan fiction over the years and never have I read anything as good as the two of you write. This story was more than amazing. Well thought out plot, great action and dialog and the characters were totally realistic and true to the series. Truly one of my very favorites ever.
Thanks for sharing your expertise with the rest of us. I hope you write more again soon. Blessings to you both.

I found this story via a rec on LiveJournal, and I've frittered away a whole Saturday afternoon in a marathon reading session - you totally hooked me!
This is one of the tightest, well-written NCIS stories I've every read, and without the author tags I would never have guessed it was written by more than one person. You've nailed the voices of the characters, and the plot kept me guessing right to the very end.
There's nothing superfluous in this story, but no holes or areas begging for additional detail either. The OC's are believable and suitably evil, and I didn't find it hard to keep track of who was who.
I'm also impressed by how much sheer whump you were able to inflict on both poor Tony and Gibbs...I'll admit to having a slightly sadistic streak where those two are concerned, but it's also quite lovely to see them mending nicely at the end.
Kudos to you both! This one's going on my favourites list, without doubt.

Loved the way Tony and Gibbs had a plan when they first were questioning Roberts.
"Aw that's so sweet, Gibbs, you don't want Tony to get hurt!" "Pacci's in Florida?" Tony asked.
"Couldn't get on the transport quick enough," Balboa said. "It was either that or face Gibbs."
"What are you talking about?" Tony asked as he maneuvered the car into a parking space near van Borough's apartment building.
"Are you kidding me? Everyone working at the yard knows, if you mess with DiNozzo, you better be prepared to face Gibbs."
"Really?" Tony asked, genuinely surprised but inexplicably warmed by the thought. "Absolutely. We'll be lucky to see Pacci again before spring and he'll be hoping that more than the snow would have thawed by then."
"Damn straight I don't want him getting hurt," Gibbs groused. "Every time he breaks a nail, I get stuck with the paperwork." He is and does really worry about Tony, but just can't admit it out loud.
Go Director Morrow you tell off Fornell. And that both NCIS and FBI cases are just as important.
Haa Tony knows how to pick a pocket and not get caught.
Loved when they had to leave and Tony said this to the guy "I packed you a sandwich. Bon appétit!" The bit about the glasses was good to.
I was cracking up at Tony expression about being naked and having help. Then Abby not wanting to leave. She wanted to see a naked Tony. Or when Abby yelled at Gibbs for head slapping Tony and again when he was going to give Tony another one.
Injured and unarmed, his young agent had chosen to go back for him, regardless of the danger. Tony's response of 'it's what you do for your partner,' resonated in Gibbs' mind and sounded very like a cop's version of 'no one gets left behind.'
"Would have made a hell of a Marine," Gibbs muttered. I think so too.
Gibbs and Fornell are so right Tony "is a keeper".

Just finished reading this excellent story - wonderful job! I found myself laughing out loud at Tony's antics (he's such a great character! and my favorite of all the bunch). It was an excellent collaboration; seamless which is a complement to the skills of both writers.
I look forward to reading more stories, whether by either author or a combination as both have a terrific grasp of characters and the words to bring them to life. Thank you for an excellent reading adventure! I am in awe!

Very, very impressive, ladies. Extremely well thought out and developed plot with side stories along the way that created suspense or entertained exceptionally well. Everyone was completely in character throughout. The dialog was crisp and to the point. Abby was characteristically annoying and Ducky was, well, Ducky. Your introduction of Vivian Blackadder was well done and the appearance of Gerald was not only timely, but perfectly executed. Oops, almost forgot Fornell - I agree with your decision to forget about the ill conceived plot of "Yankee White" and stick with Gibbs and Fornell knowing one another. You pegged him just as you did the others. All-in-all, this was a superb job and an excellent collaboration.
On a side note, I got out my JAG DVDs this morning and watched "Ice Queen" and "Meltdown." Very timely, I'd say.
Thank you so very much for your well told, entertaining story. I look forward to more from both of you and perhaps another joint effort in the future.
All the best.
