Disclaimer: Kate's dead--does it look like I own NCIS?
Rating: PG/PG13...not quite sure yet.
Pairing: TATE and KIBBS are both in here, TATE will probably eventually take over.
Spoilers: General, mostly Twilight.
Hey, did any of you guys tape Twilight? Cause I think my tv broke--it had Kate die. But I know that couldn't have happened...could it of? But really, I was so upset over that! It really sucked! I couldn't get away from it anywhere! I wanted to get my mind off it so I picked up a magazine, and what do they have an article on? NCIS!
I mean, I can understand if Sasha Alexander wanted out. But to kill her? Why not she gets seriously injured and has a less stressful role? Or has to quit for some reason and appears occasionally? No offense to Abby lovers, but Kate was like the whole woman dynamic!
What really annoys me, is I know they are going to replace her with another girl. And we are all going to start to like her. I swear to God, if they try and make her like Kate I'm gonna be really mad. If she is another kick Tony's butt kinda woman, I won't like her. Only Kate can do that. And they better not keep Kate out. Like, everything go back to normal. Even in a few years, I hope she's not totally forgotten by the rest of the team.
Anyway, its kinda ironic. I babysit on Tuesday nights, so I always tape NCIS. I really love it that much! I'm so glad (since they aren't on DVD yet) that I did that. Now at least I can go back to when Kate was still alive. sniffles And watch my favorite TATE moments.
I have to admit, Twilight did have its good points. The whole Fornell marrying Gibbs' ex wife was HILARIOUS! It really was. And, there were some excellent TATE moments in there. When Kate was talking about Tony when he was behind McGee's desk, I died laughing. That was so good! And she actually said "marry" not date. She pretty much admitted she was totally crazy about him...Plus, the whole snake scene, what McGee said about what Tony told him Kate had tried to do in Paraguay, when Kate told Tony she was going to get him into bed, (and Tony's reaction there was totally priceless! Did anyone notice how he was grinning and gazing at her!) and the whole beginning, when McGee and Kate were talking. Kate's face was so fun to watch when she was talking about an X-rated Peter Pan.
And there was some KIBBS in there, too. When Gibbs covered her up when she was sleeping--that was really cute!
One thing, it seemed to have been ignored because of Kate, but is Gibbs really going to resign? The episode was not making that too clear….anyway, I'm anxious for season three to start—It will be interesting to see everyone's reactions.
Sheesh, my author's note is almost longer than my intro chapter now. Funny! (and I know this is kinda short. I have three more chapters written, I just need to type them up. I don't know how long its going to go on for.)
Warm, wet, and sticky. Tony winced, eyes closing as he felt the blood splash his face. He had a vague recollection of scanning the area surrounding the, looking for the sniper. When Gibbs pulled his own weapon, he whispered, half in threat, "Ari."
Tony dropped to his knees by Kate, her hair surrounding her head, limp and weighted with the blood that had poured from the fatal wound. The bullet had entered directly through the middle of her forehead, piercing her skull, as a through and through. It was partially wedged into the concrete wall behind them.
Warm, wet, and sticky.
Not only on his face, but drenching the knees of his pants. Staining his hands, not just physically, but emotionally, as he brushed his thumb across her face, already going cold as the life drained out of her. As if it exited the hole in her head with the bullet. His hand caught on the bullet, the one that still lay in her vest over her stomach. Just a few minutes before, they had thought Kate was dead. Finding the bullet caught in her vest had given so much relief to both agents. Even Gibbs showed, in his own way, that he was openly glad to find Kate alive. He actually praised her for completing her protection detail duty. But she wasn't done yet. Of course, she couldn't know she was taking the bullet through her head for her boss. But Tony was sure that Kate, with her own training and character, would have taken it anyway. She would have done it for Gibbs; she would have even taken it for him. That was just Kate.
Tony jerked up when he felt a hand on his shoulder. "She's gone, Tony?" The older man asked in question. Tony merely nodded. As if there were any doubt! The blood, the bullet, her open eyes staring blankly up, unmoving. But Gibbs was just trying to hide his grief-his anger. Tony remembered when Ari had first gotten away. Gibbs was furious in general, but when he found out the Al-Quaeda man had Kate, he was totally consumed with finding the terrorist. When he had later shot Ari, it was because of Kate. It was almost like a rival between the two men over the young woman.
"You get him?" was all Tony said, without looking into his boss' face, knowing he would see the stormy, cold obsession, haunting Gibbs. Perhaps accompanied by grief--something he had never seen on the man.
Tony could almost hear Gibbs' Jaw tightening, and his heart sank.
"We're gonna get him, Tony."
Tony finally met his boss' eyes, tearing how own away from his dead partner. "You keep saying that, boss. No matter what government agency is protecting him, you could have shot to kill last time."
Gibbs held his gaze for a minute, then reached for his phone. "We need to get her out of here."
Footsteps, running, sounded in the distance. Tony and Gibbs pulled their Sig Sauers, turning and swinging them nearly in the face of a very startled McGee.
"They blew out my system, boss, and uh..." his eyes moved around nervously, and they lit on Kate. "Oh, gosh. Is she...?"
"Does it look like she's dead, Probie!" Tony fumed. "Only shot right through her forehead. Only a loss of tons of blood. Yeah, I'd say she's dead!"
He could have sworn he saw McGee's eyes turn sympathetic. The youngest agent had pretty much been the only one of Kate and his friends to see they could have had something between them Since Kate's words the day before, even though she tried to get him to think she was joking, he had thought about them. Neither of them had ever acknowledged it--for some reason both avoided their hearts totally. Now that he had been allowed a glimpse into Kate's, it was too late. She was dead, and he had to live without her. Everything she was to him. To him, she was everything.
