Summary: I could only see the end, but Gibbs saw something different.

Gibbs had stayed in Jen- no, Vance’s office so I took the opportunity to slip away while McGee was heading for Abby’s lab and Ziva was using the phone to call in some favors. I knew it was coming; had known since the whole Le Grounille mess went to hell in a hand basket. I screwed up and it cost a case with an arms dealer and the heart of an innocent woman. I screwed up this time and it cost Jenny her life. Now I have a choice to make, leave on Vance’s terms or my own. It’s over.

When I got to my apartment, I sunk on my couch and stared mindlessly at the place I had lived in for seven years. Outside of the boarding school, it was the longest I had ever stayed in one place in my life. Now I was being forced to leave, forced to lose everything. Then again, the looks that Gibbs had given me since he arrived at that diner made me think I had lost everything before Vance’s announcement. Perhaps it was best to cut ties completely and get out. No one would miss me if I just slipped away.

It was a testament to how far out of it I was that I didn’t register Gibbs standing beside the couch until I felt the slap to my head. I couldn’t bring myself to look him in the eye. I didn’t want to see the disappointment written on his face. Not only had I screwed up, but now I was running away from my mistakes. I felt a finger tipping my chin up and I didn’t have the strength the fight it. When our eyes met, I didn’t know what to make of the look. “I think I’ll just quit.”

The expected slap didn’t come. Instead I was greeted with a hand sliding through my hair and coming to rest on the back of the neck. It grounded me in a way that I hadn’t felt grounded since that explosion on the boat. “You’re not quitting, DiNozzo. You don’t quit my team.” I almost laughed, as I pointed out, “Not on your team anymore, Boss, or did you miss that part?” Gibbs just smiled and pulled me in for a hug. “You’re on my team until I say otherwise and no wanna-be director can do a thing to stop us.”

“But he signs the paperwork and last I checked they don’t send two senior agents afloat on the same ship.” I trembled as I felt Gibbs’ mouth trace down my neck and along my jaw line. “Especially if said agents are male and sleeping together,” I added quietly as Gibbs brought his mouth to meet mine. I was lost in the sensations that Gibbs provided and welcomed every touch. Sometime later, lying in bed with Gibbs’ arms wrapped around me, I heard his low voice. “It’s not over Tony, not by a long shot. I’ll put an end to Vance.”

Nice tag. There's a lot of potential ground to cover this summer and this is a natural place to start.

I've got several ideas bouncing around... this just wanted an out to get over it. :-)

Yes, yes. All of the season finals have had me twitching with worry and annoyance. I think I all most had a heart attack when That...that... Not going to say it. Ordered them to separate places. Hopefully it would be something closer to what you wrote. Very good.

Very much so... Gibbs has some work to do to set things right in the NCIS world.

*sigh* poor Tony. He seemed so broken in the second half of the finale.

I've got plans to use that broken-ness for upcoming fics... summer will likely be angst filled for poor Tony.

I'm not much of a slasher, but this was a good tag. Poor Tony.

I'm pondering this morning how to begin writing after this episode. It's tough for me because I usually write Kate-centric, so writing a current-season story is short-circuiting my brain, but I have An Idea and I really want to run with it (before someone else does LOL)

And I saw you started! Hee!

Tony needs lots o' TLC after this and that Vance guy just ripped him away from all the ones that could give it to him.

Yay! I knew (hoped) that this ep would generate lots of fic. Loved this take on it, and I'd look forward to seeing just how Gibbs takes care of Vance. *g*

I bet the summer will be full of fics about the fallout... so many ways to go with it...

This is EXACTLY what I needed after that season finale. You go Gibbs! The next season better start off with something like this =D

They better do something to get them back together by at least the 3rd or 4th ep or I'll go crazy...

aw.

yes, gibbs, you do that! that stuipd *grumble* toothpick chewing wanna-be *mumblemumble* director!

sorry, lol. i adore this little ficlet & it was exactly what i needed to read after the finale... & like someone already said, poor tony really looked like he needed to be kissed & hugged, he looked so lost & broken in this ep - especially in the last scene, where he couldn't hold eyecontact with anyone... *huggles tony & this little fic tight*

Tony needed lots of TLC after this... and he got ripped away from the ones he needed it from...

Thank you. I needed this kind of follow-up.

I don't even want to think about the summer. I guess right after my oral exam I'll start writing something to make things okay. And to keep my mind of what might really be happening in season 6.

I've got hopes of team togetherness within 3-4 eps of the start of the season... it better happen.

Glad you liked this!

Poor Tony, all shocked and numb. I'm glad Gibbs is there to ground him and keep him from running.

Tony needed his hugs after that ending... And I just finished season one of SGA and I have idea of NCIS/SGA crossovers now... oh my, oh my...

Just what I needed after finally getting round to watching the last several eps of the season. :D thanks.

You know, I usually don't like slash fiction, unless it's really well-written (which this is), but something about Gibbs and Tony together just makes sense, even more than my love for Gibbs/Kate. Odd, that is. No matter, I love these two, and I love how you wrote them. Great job.
kaylashay
May. 30th, 2008 07:13 pm (UTC)
There's something about NCIS that brings out the slash I think. I would read slash but it wasn't high on my list until Gibbs and Tony... then BAM.... Gibbs and Tony just work in some unknown way. I'll take them as friends, family-like, or lovers... they just have great chemistry together no matter what you do with them.

And thanks for the kudos on my writing! It gives me warm fuzzies.

I have other Gibbs/Tony stuff here some of which is adult slash, some is pre-slash and some is just their relationship as I see it which could be seen as slash, pre-slash or gen depending on how you read it. I just love them... :-)

Ahh the good old days when we all loved to hate Vance :) Though he did learn not to mess with the boys. Very nice fic, I wasn't expecting a happy ending so it was a bonus
