My name is Daniela.As you can guess/if you look at my favorite stories/, I'm a huge NCIS fan.My favorite ep.is "Yankee white" .I think that Gibbs and Kate really shows their characters-this episode drew me to "NCIS".
My favorite pairings:
1.Gibbs/Kate. My OTP/One True Pairing/ Think what you want but I'm pretty sure the real reason why Sasha Alexander left was the stunted development of the Kate character. I mean watch the first episodes of NCIS and compare them to the last one. Even DiNozzo was more profesional at first and in S2 he's only the mashine for movies.Kate start as the cool and smart ex secret service agent and then they transform her to a fool by let's - making - her - more - mistakes - than - anyone - else - at - the -team and restrict her acting of the bickering with DiNozzo...In YW and almost in all S1 she was confident of herself, even stood up to Gibbs,but after that ...In S2 she had her moments as profiler, as a detective working a crime scene she just wasn't Kate from S1.And instead of standing up at least to Tony she went into an adolescent rivalry with him that was just pathetic in my opinion. It's not like I did't loved her-I liked her teasing with Tony very much,but in S2 she is ...well... different.It's not that I dislike them,but I prefer more mature relationships,mostly because I like the an-explicit flirting:the looks exchanges, a smile, a little touch,the complicity...and I like also the fact that Gibbs was Kate's mentor, sometimes he's also harsh with her (Heart break),nothing is so clear or evident and,because of that, it's more interesting and more deeper:D I think Gibbs/Kate relationship is a lot more deep and meaningful than Kate and Tony's flirting
Why I Ship These Characters
/I will use raindroproses words/
"Well, I'm a sucker for May/December romance, as well as superior/subordinate. And the UST between Gibbs and Kate was obvious from the first episode. But there's no way I could enjoy this 'ship as much as I do if Kate wasn't a strong female lead. That's what Gibbs needs, I think--a woman who won't back down from a fight..."woman, who has a brain AND a body (my add) "but also won't try to brain him with a baseball bat and/or a nine-iron (as ex-wives numbers two and three attempted)."
Reason number one I ship these characters:
The staring. There have been hundreds of intense looks between Gibbs and Kate. That's what DPB did with Harm and Mac for years - lots of stares.
Most of the viewers prefer Tony /Kate than Gibbs/Kate-they can not understand the attraction of a younger woman for an older man like Gibbs. I just remember the chemistry I saw in 'Yankee White' and I loved it! Yes, he is older than Kate,but for some reason that doesn't bug me at all.I don't have problem with older man/younger woman love reletionship.I prefer more mature relationships like Gibbs/Kate.The ones who see G/K are the ones who realize attraction doesn't ask to see your ID. Personally, I can't imagine working for or with Gibbs and not having a huge crush on him, so it would be natural if Kate would.
Based on their interaction in "Yankee White", I don't think Gibbs feelings toward Kate were anything close to fatherly. After all, she's definitely a strong-willed woman,something I imagine all his women have been.I think Kate and Gibbs saw something in each other when they first met on Air Force One.After he hired her, her admiration for him grew. It's clear she tried to impress him with her investigative skills .I can easily believe that Kate feels an attraction to Gibbs (like who wouldn't?) He may feel something, too, but I think he'd be better at hiding - or ignoring - it. She would try to hide it, but find herself staring, or sketching, or something. how Gibbs would handle Kate's attraction - I think probably the same way Grissom in CSI handle's Sara's fancy for him - trying to pretend its not there, and that he doesnt feel the same due to some silly belief that the work is more important. Before Kate died, I saw a lot of subtext with her and Gibbs. I could see a women like Kate catching Gibbs and keeping him. And Kate can learn from him through not only the job, but life.They make each other 'whole' in some way.
In S1 and especially 1.01 "YW" when she wasn’t his agent, Gibbs was definitely flirting.There was something between them since they first met on Air Force One, a spark that even DPB tried to diffuse (using the mysterious redhead-DPB ,after 1.01"YW" ,said,that he loved the tension between Gibbs and Kate ,but he didn't want Unresolved Sexual Tension on this show, that's why he tried to diffuse the spark between them- he added the mysterious red head to prevent the tension between Kate and Gibbs.
Kate is perfect for Gibbs because she breaks the mold. I think that she's fascinated by him and I think that he's equally fascinated by her.Who else could call Gibbs a 'gloomy gus' and get away with it? Who could spill his coffee/"Sub Rosa"/ and still get what she wants?This ship had the potential to be perfect, but it didn't happen. I think neither of them wanted to give into their hearts.Both Kate and Gibbs were understandably wary of coworker relationships Gibbs had his problems with Jen/his partner and ex-lover/; Kate had her thing with Major Kerry/her college and lover/. Neither was about to make a move, especially within only two years of knowing one another. Gibbs' true feelings about Kate are known only to him and Kate's caricature of Gibbs remains a mystery. Kate respected Gibbs more than she did Tony, though, and possibly he respected her more than Tony did.
I think that Gibbs and Kate's scenes and interaction are much more subtle in comparision to Tony and Kate's scenes and interaction in S2.As far as this season has gone there hasn't been much interaction between Gibbs and Kate in comparison to Tony and Kate and so there isn't much to comment on and I'm not usually expecting there to be much interaction between Gibbs and Kate and instead for there to be more focus and emphasis on Tony and Kate.Personally i think there is more going for a Kate/Gbbs relationship than there is for Kate/Tony. . I also think that Gibbs after three divorces would know when to compromise and his personality is more similar to Kate's than Tony's is and Gibbs and Kate are more serious although they both have a softer side. With Tony and Kate, it has never seemed serious, more like harmless flirting that isn't going anywhere, although the writers like playing with this aspect of the show.
I noticed during the first season and it has continued into the second season that despite the fact Gibbs has come across as a bit more stern and harsh with Kate opposed to the other characters that he probably doesn't act this way for no reason. I've also noticed that both Sasha and Mark have been asked in different interviews about a possible Gibbs/Kate romance.
I beleve that Gibbs liked Kate a lot"-remember his amused tolerance of her faults and ingorance of all things naval,that feeling that no matter what,he was always make shure she was OK , that sence that he is torn between professional respect and a chivalrous,old fashioned need to take care of her as well as the occasional urge to throttle her.Maybe he had feelings for her,but can't/won't recognize them because she is so different from his usual kind of woman.Without Kate in the picture,i fear we will never again see that side of Gibbs that her character brought out.
2.Tony/Ziva. I've noticed that when Kate was around, Tony was able to get away with bullying her a bit because she was always disturbed by his perversions. With Ziva, he's actually been thrown off his game because she's worse than he is, and rather than flaunting his own vices, he seems much more interested in finding out all of hers. And she knows it.While Tony and Kate's relationship was one in which Tony would say things and Kate would get all shocked and baffled, Ziva is often the one to shock Tony.Her comments back to him seem to be more biting than Kate's ever were.I love that Ziva hits back at Tony.Under Covers was planned before Sasha Alexander quit, meaning that episode was meant to be Tony/Kate/or maybe Gibbs/Kate,since the writers didn't have the final conception about that ep. in that time/ ,but I'm sure that the writters didn't plan to have a sex scene,like they did with Ziva and Tony-Kate's character didn't not allow it.Kate and Tony's relationship in Under Covers would be more like their undercover like teenager couple in Boneyard-Ziva and Tony were way better in that ep. than Tony and Kate would ever be,because Kate was always too uptight and professional to actually put DiNozzo in his place. But Ziva not only accepts his comments but she throws in comments that leave him speechless or shocked. That relationship is far more equal for me. To me Ziva and Tony balance each other out pretty well, they both come on strong but have shown that they have a softer side, and we've seen Ziva checking Tony out a few times, at least once when he's had his shirt off in front of her.
A pairing that I despise:
1.Tony/Kate. If I was to pair Kate with anyone it would be Gibbs or Ari/the bad guy on the show.that will bring more danger,more suspense,more difficult moments on the show.Not to mention that all this will make the show more real.
2.Gibbs/Jen./in S3/ Something already happened between them and I don't think they're going back. There's some anger there that won't let that happen.For me Jen just doesn't seem to"fit" with the other characters. The show has a certain style and momentum that is interrupted when she appears. Even Ari, consumately evil, "fit.". Too often she lets Gibbs dictate to her.She should have put her foot down--she is the boss, not he. The result is that neither Gibbs nor his team (especially Tony) show her the respect that they showed Tom Morrow/ex-boss/, and I really hate that.
