Summary: Writing proved to be just as hard as talking...

Tony,

I didn't forget. Well, I did, but I remembered in Mexico about the same time I remembered everything else about you. Mike just about kicked me out that night. I've been waiting and I'll keep waiting until you're sure you're ready.

I never talked about Shannon and Kelly because I didn't even let myself think about them. It's different now and if you want to listen, I think I can talk. Might take some time though. And lots of bourbon.

There's something going on here. I can feel it in my gut.

I'm getting you home Tony.

Semper Fi

Gibbs so succinct as per usual. I do hope there'll be a 3rd or 4th part to this little serious of yours

I don't think I could have gotten more out of Gibbs if I had tried. I was pushing my luck getting 100. :-)

There's at least one more story to this series that I'm working on now. MASH has one more episode title that fits perfectly. :-)

I do love Gibbs and his verbose tendencies. *g*

This made me "awwwww" - and Gibbs would probably shoot me if he heard me. :D I'm looking forward to further installments!

Gibbs was very verbose in this... I had to *draw* that word count out of him. He really just wanted to say:

I remembered. I'm waiting. Maybe I'll talk. Something's wrong. Working on bringing you home. - Gibbs.

But that was too short for even a drabble fic. ;-)

I loved doing the size difference. Everything Tony said could have been done in 100 words just like Gibbs'. However, Tony talks. Maybe not about what he needs to talk about, but he does talk. I had fun translated their talking to letters.

I just read the series from the begining and I love it, I am hoping there are more to come...at least until Tony is home! Maybe he even delivers the last one by hand haha! Keep them coming please :)

Awww, Gibbs :)

This is good stuff! I know how you feel about squeezing words out of our stoic hero - I had a hard time putting e-mails together from him during this time in weighted_scales too.

That was beautifully written.

It's hard to squeeze words out of Gibbs at times. Thanks!

I need to go review more at weighted-scales. I enjoy that series. :-)

This was perfect.

Gibbs ignored all of Tony's crap, got straight to the point, and said what he wanted to say. Awesomeness.

Thanks for sharing, happy writing, and a new part soon please!

Tabee :)

Gibbs is a 'to the point' kind of guy. Glad you liked!

Oh Gibbs!!!! I loved your letter to Tony. I'm sure he was very happy to get it too. I can't wait to hear that you and Tony had a nice sit down talk, but that might take time...

Tony was extremely happy to get that short little note from Gibbs. It meant that Gibbs took time just for him. :-)

Yeah, talking is still a long ways away for them.
