Absolutely, positively amazing. Thank you! I've been watching reruns of NCIS, and while I loved it, and occasionally the banter was fun it started to get to the point where they were being down right bullying toward Tony. 'Dead Air' in particular pissed me off. My dad is a vietnam vet, and I asked him about a situation like that... and his response was almost brutal. Leaving a partner anywhere without backup is akin to murdering them outright. Yet that episode made a joke out of it.
I am not one to take things seriously, particularly TV and the like, but I couldn't help but let it bug me. I love the Tony and Gibbs interaction, and love the just desserts dished out by Ziva and Tim. Thank you for a good read!

Overall I like this story. I'm having trouble with one part though, and you are certainly not that only author that does this: while Tony certainly never deserved what McGee and David did to him, he has made mistakes as well, and scenes like that in 27 are really kind of a cop out because there is no way for Abby to respond to it and for them to have a discussion about past mistakes in a way that allows them to move forward. Realistically, most people would become very defensive having their mistakes thrown at them like that, and it would only lead to more anger and upset. I honestly would never tolerate that from a family member, let alone a friend. And I think the way that scene was written would be a set up for future hurt feelings, not a way to heal. Something that could add to this story might be Tony and Gibbs reflecting on why Tony acted the clown, and how to change that going forward.

Tony has got a long road to go over. Good thing he isn't alone.

I agree that Vance and SecNav are handling this the right way. It will hurt a lot but ultimate it will reinforce the importance of being a team.
