Summary: Jack enlists a little help with getting Gibbs and Tony to take a break...

Dear Abby,

Leroy told me you had a bad experience with some misplaced trust. Hope this doesn't turn away from all us old men out there with good intentions. At least the bastard will get what's coming to him.

If Leroy ever drops the ball on keeping an eye on you, you're welcome to call me any time. Not only will I take care of the problem, but I'll give Leroy a piece of my mind.

Speaking of Leroy, I've been meaning to ask you something. How are things really between my boy and Tony? From their letters, I can tell things are a little strained, but I'm not sure why. Is there something they ain't telling me?

I've been trying to talk them into taking time off. Tony seems receptive to the idea, but Leroy won't budge. Is that something you can help out with? I'm even willing to send you some of that caffeinated drink you grew attached to while you were here.

Give those boys a hug for me…
Jack

PS: I sent you some of that drink even if you can't help out.




Dear Dad,

Abby too? Whatever was in those drinks you sent had her bouncing off the walls in her lab. More than usual. She also keeps shooting looks at DiNozzo and me. What exactly did you say to her?

Jethro




Jack!

If you were here, I'd hug you! These drinks are great and I think I'll have to set up some kind of shipment process with you so I can get them on a regular basis. Have you ever thought of going online? Timmy and I could put together a wicked site for you. People go for the nostalgia feel and you are definitely nostalgia. Not that you are 'old' nostalgia. It's just that your store is old. Well, not old-old, but it's old-timey. You know, not like the box stores. And there's nothing wrong with that. Maybe I'll just shut up now.

Tony and Gibbs! I'll talk about them. They're both stubborn mules. You probably already know that about Gibbs, because he is your son and you probably watched him become stubborn. I bet he was always getting in trouble with you, wasn't he? I can't picture Gibbs as anything other than Gibbs. I bet you can tell some stories about him.

Tony. Tony's Tony. We all love him, but it doesn't take much to see how much he was messed up as a kid. Well, actually not everyone sees it. Kate kinda did. Kate was one of the team by the way. She was killed a few years back. While she was standing right next to Tony and the boss man. It wasn't a good time. She got Tony some of the time. Ziva thinks she does, but she really doesn't. She has her own set of daddy issues. And Timmy had the good life with normal parents and a normal sister (aside from the cheeseless pizza with pickles, Tabasco and peanut butter), so he doesn't really get it.

Tony never really had family until we got him. I think we scare him sometimes. And I know he's afraid he'll run Gibbs off. And I think Gibbs is afraid Tony will run off. So they both walk on eggshells around each other.

I'll work on getting them away. Maybe I'll drag them myself and then disappear after a day. If I work it right, they can't say no to me.

Keep the drinks coming Papa Gibbs!

-Abby




Jack,

Sorry it's been awhile since I wrote. Work's been busy and there's something going on with Ziva that I just can't put my finger on. There's this guy from back home I think she hooked up with when the team was split up last summer. Only I think there's more to the hook up than just a hook up. Her father probably has a hand in any guy that she dates, whether she knows it or not.

Jethro just left for LA with McGee. And… I've got this bad feeling that something's going to happen. I don't get gut feelings the way Gibbs does, but when I do I try to listen to them. I'm not sure if it's something in LA or something closer to home that's going to happen, but it has me on edge.

Damn. Didn't mean to make this sound like something bad would go down. Don't worry about us. We also come out on top. NCIS = 10, Bad Guys = 0.

Oh, Abby mentioned something to me about taking a group trip. You know anything about that?

Take care…
Tony




Gibbs' Dad!

I got the boss to agree to taking some time off in a few weeks! I kind of blackmailed him, but it worked! So you better be ready to be invaded…

Can't write much more. Tony's got me looking up some stuff and Gibbs is in LA and it's work, work, work. But I'll get the guys there soon!

Huggin' Yah!
Abby




Jack smiled as he pulled the envelopes from the mailbox. There was one from Leroy, one from Tony and two from Abby. He'd have to send the girl more drinks if she was going to write him like that. He'd been lonely for so long, that suddenly having a family again was a heady experience.

He sat down with a beer and read through the letters, alternately frowning and smiling at the content. When he read Abby's last words, he began mentally noting everything he needed to do before they arrived at the house. Of course, he'd need to find out when to expect them before he got too carried away.

He was just reaching for some paper to reply with when the phone rang. Glancing at the time, he wondered who could be calling so late.

He answered just before the machine could pick it up. "This is Jack."

The solemn voice of his son came through the speaker, "Tony's been hurt."

That's wonderful stuff. Abby's letters are adorable, and that last line just kills.

Abby was a blast to write in this one. I think she was still hopped up on whatever drink it was Jack sent her. ;-)

And, yeah... that last line was a killer for me too.

Rock on Abby. But hey! you can't leave us there with a cliffhanger like that, very bad particularly for unfortunate souls like myself who've been working all night and have yet finished , and.... please can you write some more on this , I'd go down on my knees and plead but I'm liable to keel over after so many hours without sleep :-)
kaylashay
Jul. 10th, 2009 04:35 am (UTC)
Abby rocks...

And... well... the cliffhanger kinda happened. I know what's next, but I'm not sure I would do it justice if I wrote it right now. Would tomorrow night be okay???

I can so see Gibbs's expression when he finds out that his father is overcaffeinating Abby! I love it! And both Jack and Abby considering the bunch 'family' even though Gibbs and Tony are still walking on eggshells a bit is adorable. I'd love to see Abby picking Jack's brain for Gibbs-as-a-kid stories when they finally get together.

And you're gonna take care of that last line soon, right?
kaylashay
Jul. 10th, 2009 04:45 am (UTC)
Yeah, overcaffeinating Abby isn't a good thing... :-)

And I think there will be definite Gibbs-as-a-kid stories at some point. We already know he was a fool who jumped into shallow water... what else could little Leroy get up to I wonder.

And the last line will be resolved... Hopefully better than the show did. ;-)

Oh yeah... Jack has watched all those DVDs he had on his store shelf and then some. ;-)

I'm very happy with how this series is going. And I think the movie buff thing will make an appearance in the next installment. :-)

That last line wrenched me out of lurking mode. The set up with letters to and from Abby, Gibbs, Tony's foreboding closely followed by Gibbs's call and those few *spoken* words in a series consisting of *Letters* was utterly brilliant.

Loving this series.
kaylashay
Jul. 15th, 2009 05:49 am (UTC)
I so glad that the spoken mixed well for you with the letters. It's been hard to do that. I actually had to scrap some of the next one because that wasn't going so well. It's hard to find the right balance in that.

Thanks!!

I am LOVING this series so much! I adored Abby's letter in this. And her line about Tony not having family until they got their hands on him. And then this bit at the end had me wibbling: "He'd been lonely for so long, that suddenly having a family again was a heady experience." Poor Jack! I love that he's having a family again!

I can't wait for Tony and Gibbs to go to Stillwater for Tony to recuperate and for Jack to knock some sense into them! LOL! Please keep writing!
kaylashay
Jul. 15th, 2009 05:51 am (UTC)
I'm having so much fun with this series! :-)

Jack is just as lonely as the rest of them. He lost his wife at some point. His daughter-in-law and granddaughter... and his son for so many years. I have this feeling that many of his friends have passed away too, or are starting to. So, yeah... he's lonely. He needs them as much as they need him.

Yay for recuperation! :-D

OMG, Tony's hurt!! I love how you're handling the series through the letters. I like that Jack's in the picture and we get to see the NCIS life through different eyes written to the same audience. Well done.

Please write faster. Eeep. *g*
kaylashay
Jul. 15th, 2009 05:52 am (UTC)

I'm so glad that you are enjoying it. And Jack is fun to write. I think of my grandpa and go from there when writing him. :-)

I'm glad I know what happened... Well... Maybe I do. I dunno. But this was fantastic. Do you just pick the order of letters at random? I don't think you do but I don't know. -shrugs- Can't wait for the next installment!
kaylashay
Jul. 15th, 2009 05:55 am (UTC)
Thanks! The order doesn't really come at random. I start with one and then go from there and just follow what the muse says to do on that end. And I hope my muse gets it right. ;-)

You can't just end like that, and leave us hanging on and wondering what happened to Tony!

Once again, brilliant! Loved Abby's letters!

Hope things will be okay in the end...please? :)
kaylashay
Jul. 15th, 2009 05:57 am (UTC)
Abby's letters were fun to do. :-)

I think they'll get things straightened out in the end... *crosses fingers and whispers to the muse*
