The parallel and introspection were spot on,hit me right there in the heart.
angelscatie chapter 1 . 5/22/2012
Great one shot. Until I read your story, I never realized the parallels between the two groups

The 'Yabba' episode was a gold mine for plot bunnies, I wrote one about Tony performance review, but never thought about this particular angle on the episode! Great, thoughtful one-shot, thanks for writing and posting!

Very well reasoned and thought out, and an excellent parallel drawn. I loved how you picked up on this thing they do, of speaking volumes without saying a word, standing seriously together. Very enjoyable!

Nice story, the kind of introspection probably going on inside Gibbs all the time. Nice parallel with Michael too, that was a good episode. Did kinda wonder how Tony got the performance review, maybe Gibbs did set him up! ;) It's not like 'excessively chatty' could have been a surprise. Really nice tag story.

What kept Gibbs from supporting Vance's trust of Michael however were the distinct differences between their respective charges. For DiNozzo, making him a good man meant some tough love, discipline and reassurance that no matter how he screwed up Gibbs would be there for him as long as he was honest. With his consistent support Gibbs has watched Tony grow up from flaky, insecure and unpredictable to semi-confident and dependable. Gibbs knows his young agent's insecurities will never leave him. The surprising shyness and sensitive nature that Tony hides so expertly will always be some of his more endearing traits and Gibbs never wants him to change who he is at heart. Gibbs had Tony and Tony really was a good son. Vance had Michael. Things don't always work out the way we hope and sometimes all you can do in the end is let go. Driving back to the Navy yard, Tony yabbering on next to him, Gibbs found himself feeling profoundly grateful that he'd never have to do is so Tony.

So agree with your A/N
