Summary: Ducky learns early on how to address the newest member of Gibbs' team.

"Ah…" came the cultured voice of the older man Tony assumed was the medical examiner. "You must be Special Agent Gibbs' newest acquisition. Unfortunately, he failed to pass your name along to me."

Tony stepped forward and stretched his hand out for a shake, only to pull it back at the last minute when he saw the blood covered hand.

"Tony DiNozzo," he said as he instead brought his hand up to his nose. There was a foul odor in the autopsy room and it had something to do with the dead body on the table.

"Tony. Would that be short for Anthony? Anthony was derived from Greek you know. It meant, 'Worthy of –"

"Worthy of telling me why he hasn't reported back to me," Gibbs' stern voice interrupted the tangent the doctor had taken.

"Uh- I was just getting to that, Sir – Gibbs – Boss," Tony rushed to say, attempting to cover the expression that had crossed his face when the doctor had started to talk about his name.

"How about you get to Abby and see if she has anything and I'll finish up here," Gibbs ordered instead of asking.

Tony debated mentioning that he thought the Goth forensics chick might kill him if he showed up in her lab again, but one look from Gibbs had him exiting autopsy anyway. Well on his way, he missed what was said between his new boss and the doctor.

"He seems a little jumpy Jethro. Are you sure he will make a good replacement for Stan?"

"He will Ducky. Just don't call him Anthony."

"Why ever not?" Ducky asked. "Anthony is a strong name."

"You didn't see his face. Somebody convinced that kid he's not worthy of anything, let alone his name. Now what do you got for me Duck?"

Oooh, me LIKES.

And now I'm thinking about 'Bounce' where Gibbs not only called him Anthony but *also* gave him praise....


*kicks at the bunny*

I loved how in the midst of a story about Ducky and Tony and his name, we get this mention of Tony and Abby's initial meetings haha. It says so much in so few words.

(And oh, I realise I have no NCIS icons left. What has this show done to me? Damn it so)

I love touching on the little mention that Abby didn't take to Tony as fast as she took to Kate and what that could mean... :-)

And, yeah... the show needs a kick to get its act back in gear.

Gibbs always knows. :-)

I rarely write Ducky, so it was fun to do that for a change. :-)
Jul. 23rd, 2009 05:34 am (UTC)
Nice job. :-)
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks! :-)
Jul. 23rd, 2009 06:06 am (UTC)
I love this!!!!
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:14 pm (UTC)
Yay! :-)

Ooooh, I like this! Gibbs has Tony all figured out, already! And Tony's concerns about Abby are just perfect... considering that the first words out of her mouth were probably something about being able to kill him without getting caught, and how he can't replace Stan *g*. It made me think of that scene in Bounce, too. *rescues bunny from attempted kick* *sneaks some carrots out of her purse when nobody is looking* *looks innocent*

*glares at bunny feeding attempts*

I think I know what to do for Bounce in connection with this, but I'll have to see if it forms into a ficlet or not.

And I love playing on how Abby could have treated Tony when he first joined the team. I think he got treated more like how she treated Ziva than how she treated Kate or McGee. Kate and McGee joined the team when nothing had happened to those before them. (well, we can assume that Viv left at some point, but I bet Abby was too upset over her leaving.)

Appropriate Icon is Appropriate
*whimper* Poor Tony. *Cuddles and Pets* I loved Gibbs *huggles* and Ducky was perfect!

*frowns* Am I the only one who didn't think about "Bounce"? I got sidetracked wondering just what happened during Abby and Tony's first meeting. *tosses bunny kibble about*

Re: Appropriate Icon is Appropriate
LOL... When I finished, I was all: "Bounce! Gibbs not only praised him, but he called him Anthony at the same time!!!"

And I love thinking about Abby and Tony's first meeting. Of course, I've already been-there-done-that once with a Gibbs/Abby/Tony threesome, but maybe I'll visit it again one day. :-)

Gibbs just sees everything!!! I like it.
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:30 pm (UTC)
Gibbs has eyes in the back of his head. :-)

(and the side, and everywhere....)

Just joined this comm and this is the first drabble I read! *hugs* Lovely stuff.
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:31 pm (UTC)
Yay! You'll find me a lot over there. I drabble a lot, even if I've slacked off on the drabbles lately.
Jul. 23rd, 2009 12:07 pm (UTC)
*applauds* Shiny! The last line did make me whimble a little though.
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:32 pm (UTC)
Tony insecurity makes for good whimbles... :-)
Jul. 23rd, 2009 01:09 pm (UTC)

Tony is such a closet woobie! :(
Jul. 24th, 2009 10:32 pm (UTC)
He is!

It's what makes us want to hug him, over and over and over and over and.....
