Anniversaries and Vampire Fic...

I'll be so glad when tomorrow night is over and done with! The company I work is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. I've been when then for almost 7 years (May 12th I think). Somehow I ended up event planner for this big dinner we are having tomorrow night at the local country club. 80 people will be in attendance... Phewww...

So if you've been trying to catch me lately, that's why I haven't responded as quick... After Friday night, I'll be back to normal. (I hope)

Next up, I saw a post about vampirebigbang. It's only 10,000 words, which I think I could manage... However, I thought I would do a little poll for idea generation. And to procrastinate from making the agenda's for the dinner tomorrow night. :-)

possible plot bunny?
Abby should be a vampire. She sleeps in a coffin, right? But the team doesn't know, but Gibbs suspects or something.
Or maybe there's a looong mission, and she's got self control but not that much.



Or it could be Ducky! keeps the blood stash in the autopsy freezer.

Re: possible plot bunny?
I'm sure Ducky has to help support any vamps within NCIS. I mean, he does talk to the dead after all. :-)

I think Ducky should be your vampire ... and he's about to turn someone, and your story could revolve around who and why ... maybe he was going to turn Jenny but she died before he could so now he's thinking it's time to turn .... (I will politely leave that to you...*nods*)

If I could write Ducky more than just a quick scene or two, I would. But alas my Ducky-foo is not that strong... Perhaps you could write a Ducky-centered fic. *nudges*

Forever Knight! How could I forget thee! (of course I ignore that last several episodes, but still...)

There's so many possibilities, I'll have to ponder it.

PS: I'll get back to you tomorrow night/Saturday on things you've sent... Once this anniversary deal is over. :-)

Hee! Family idea... definitely less homicidal. I can imagine Gibbs rolling his eyes when Abby and Tony tried to compare lineages.

Oooh the possibilities!

Even your questions in the poll spark so many intriguing paths to take a vamp!fic.

I kinda like the idea of Tony and Abby as two vampires, probably of the non-traditional kind if you have them slot into canon (daylight cases and so forth).

Perhaps Abby would be one of those more modern vampires from New Orleans, who embraces the pop culture crush on vampirism; sleeping in coffins, going to vamp clubs, meeting all the stereotypes for a fangirl!ofthenight; hiding in plain sight, and being amused about the idolisation of it all.

Possibly Tony would be a vampire from the old country(take that as you will), and perhaps more surprising as a vampire as he has had a long time to get his stride for keeping a low profile and not getting poofed/ended by any over-zealous religious crusader out to rid the world of his foul kind etc. etc. He's got the whole re-invention thing down pat, never staying too long anywhere or making anything more than casual aquiantences. The whole seduction thing though, has always been his favourite part of his heritage.

Maybe Gibbs finds out about them. Maybe he has history with vampires in the past and has to reconcile that with Abby and Tony, two people who he loves, and have proved loyal and devoted to him.

Maybe Ducky knows a lot about the lore. And maybe McGee is the latest in a long line of Hunters, though every inch the Probie.

Hmmmmmmm........

There are so many possibilities! And McGee as a Hunter... Huh... *ponders that angle*

And I'm still debating on Abby... I can go either way with her (vamp or not) and I'm not sure which yet.

I think you should write NCIS, but NCIS/Supernatural would be cool, too. I don't watch Supernatural, but from what I've read in some crossover fic, I think it'd be pretty cool :)

Also, I really like the idea of Tony and Abby as vampires. I slash Tony/Gibbs all the way, but I think it'd be awesome if they were bff because they'd known each other forever (literally!) and Gibbs isn't a vampire. Gibbs-as-the-vampire is what I've seen most often lately, therefore you should buck the trend *bg*

I second this!

Kinda what I was thinking. Gibbs as vamp, suave and powerful, has been done a few times (not that that's a bad thing ;-p), and I think the Abby & Tony as bff vamps would rock.

Although they probably weren't always such friends, and it maybe took a while to get over each others differences. And I must confess to being a huge Tony/Gibbs fangirl too :-D

Can't wait to see what kayla comes up with though!

You just gave me a little bunny that I may have to explore more in my head with that sentence.... *wonders off to ponder*

BWAHAHA! Oh Tony and Abby as Vamp-BFF's is fantastic. I guess Gibbs meeting Tony in Baltimore WASN'T chance, it was carefully orchestrated by Abby because she so thought her bestest friend forever would be so much better for Gibbs than another redhead

There are very few scenarios that are better for Eternal Tony/Gibbs HOt Monkey sex, though one of them is Immortal (Highlander) Tony and Gibbs.

Though in that scenario you have the problem of Tony shooting any challengers to Gibbs in the back, which leads to Tony and Methos becoming BFF's
kaylashay
Apr. 16th, 2010 02:48 am (UTC)
LOL! Gibbs would also snipe anyone who was trying to challenge Tony... It was meant to be.

And BFFs Tony and Methos?! ROTFLMAO!!!
kateri_e
Apr. 16th, 2010 02:57 am (UTC)
You know they would be perfect as BFFs, Methos would so be cheering on all of Tony's snide behavior, specially toward Vance. Oh and they would so egg eachother on for creating the most outrageous 'undercover' identities.

Gibbs would also snipe anyone who was trying to challenge Tony
Are you kidding? First thing Gibbs would do is have McGee and Abby hack the Watcher database to alert Gibbs of whenever an Immortal got within 100 miles of DC. The Immortal would then find themselves sniped and wake up tied in a basement and be left there until Gibbs was convinced that they wouldn't go anywhere neat his Honeybuns ;-)

Hmm, I so need a new Methos icon

Loving the idea of Tony and Abby being vamps who've known each other for generations, especially if Abby finds a way to bring Gibbs to Tony. But what if they (Abby and Tony) came from opposing clans (an Italian and a French), and that's why Tony doesn't have alot to do with his family, because he was disowned for befriending an "enemy".

I was thinking that you could take yumi's idea of a precog and tweak it, making Gibbs the precog instead. I mean, he does have that preturnatural ability to know what's going on and be in the right place at the right time right? Maybe he's fascinated with Tony, who he saw in a vision once or something, and he's determined to figure him out. Then add in kateri e's idea of Abby bringing them together in sort of their own family. Then Gibb's abilities could come into play to warn them that Tony's clan is going to make a move and they want him back in the fold and are willing to destroy Gibbs and Abby to get him.

And while I'm at it and throwing out randomness, why not have Gibbs be a reincarnation of a lover Tony had and lost in colonial Louisiana? (Has a vision of Tony in period clothes alighting on Gibbsalike's balcony and sneaking in ala Bela Lugosi <3)

I have to start by saying I'd love a vamp fic written by you ... but then I pretty much love anything you write. :)

For specifics, I'd love to see a non-traditional vamp with a human mate, provided the mate gets the immortal bennies from his vamp (yeah, I know that's two of the things in the last choice section, but there ya have it.) And I'd love to see the pairing of Tony with ... Xander Harris. Two more unappreciated guys I can't imagine, both of whom deserve better. Specifically, they deserve each other.

So ... maybe Xander was turned, but because of the hyena/soldier possessions, it didn't take the way it normally would. He had to leave Sunnydale, however, or risk discovery. Or maybe he was in D.C. for some reason, met Tony, something clicked between them, and wants to take Tony as his mate. Or it could be Tony who is the vamp, and has to turn Xander to save him, or wants to take Xander as his mate. (Yeah, I could go for two non-traditional vamps. Can't take those two boys out of the sun ... they love it so much.)

Any way you work it, I'd love to see those two hook up ... they're so alike in some ways (both are sweet, use humor to deflect, are more competent and skilled than many believe, are loyal beyond belief, etc.) but I think are different enough to make it work.

Besides, I can just see Xander smacking Gibbs upside the head for something Gibbs does to Tony. Or Tony going off on Buffy because she's haughtily dismissive of Xander. Hmm, maybe I just *want* to see those two things. :)

So ... there ya have it. My take on the whole thing. And now, I should get cracking on the two stories I should be writing. *sheepish grin*

If you write NCIS/Supernatural, I'd love you even more than I already do (which is nigh on impossible, but...). My question though is if you do go that crossover route, would you stick with the vampire canon in Supernatural, or would you create a new offshoot of vampires? Because I'm trying to imagine Tony/Abby/Gibbs with those mashed-up teeth, and it's not working too well... LOL!

But seriously, anything that has Team Gibbs interacting with Team Winchester is a-ok in my book. Tony could fangirl over Dean's car, Sam and McGee could be all nerdy together, and Gibbs and John (if you make it that early in the series) could bond over Marine-type-stuff. Or something.

Anywho, back to the vampire angle: I honestly don't care WHO you make the vampire. Gibbs makes such a good vampire, because it would explain so MUCH about the stuff he can do, but he's always the vampire - and there isn't a lot of vamp!Tony stories out there (I can think of like, maybe two or three, and mine and yours are two of them *sporfle*). But, I can go either way. *bg*

As for Abby being a vampire... while I think I could go either way on that, too, I kind of like her as a human best. I have no idea why - it's just a gut feeling that I have. Maybe I just like her fangirling over Tony and/or Gibbs when she finds out that one or both of them is an actual vampire. Heh. :-)

I've probably been no help at all. Forgive me, for I am sick. *snort* I do hope you end up writing some sort of new vampire fic - and I think I may check out this mini-bigbang... *shifty*

ZOMG! Vampire fic by Kayla! \o/

Um, yes.

After reading the comments here, I gotta tell ya, I'd totally dig Tony and Abby as vampy BFF and literally knowing each other for ages. And Gibbs not being a vamp. Until Tony Turns him. 'Cause, in all honesty, I've read fics where Gibbs Turned Tony, but never the other way around, and I'd love seeing that scenario.

Then again, I'd love whatever the effing heck you'd come up with, so I'm easy. *g*

I am fine with anyone being the vamp as long as I get a good dose of McGee in the fic somewhere. I don't think he fits the profile of being a hunter though because I don't see him going around killing the living dead unless they were a problem.
