NCIS Tony-Gibbs

2020 NCIS Dear Santa Letter

Since SeSa is about giving, please don't stress out about it. I will enjoy anything you're willing to write for me, really. I appreciate anyone who writes something for me, because giving a story is a really cool thing to do. :)

Dislikes:
I'm not into stories with MPREG, genderswap, or vampires/zombies/werewolves/shape-shifters/witches, etc. I prefer no heavy drug use unless it's related to kidnapping (given forcibly) or severe injuries (given by medical staff). I also don't care for stories told in 1st or 2nd person (even though it's rare, I thought I'd mention it just in case). I do not care for the Tiva pairing at all or any hints thereof. I absolutely hated the Tony exit story, so please, no mention of Tiva or Tali. I don't really care for kid!fics. I'm not a fan of character bashing, so I don't really enjoy any of the characters written as OOC, evil or incompetent. I prefer Senior being a conman as he was portrayed in his earlier appearances, rather than the super-nice guy they've made him out to be more recently. Since NCIS often deals with murders, I would be fine with such an investigation, but no non-canon major character death, please.

Likes:
I'm pretty flexible. I like happy stuff, romantic stuff, humorous stuff, miscommunications that are worked through in the end, H/C and angst with happy endings. I enjoy natural settings like mountains, beaches, Gibbs' cabin, etc. I enjoy case fics as well as AR stories where they have everyday type jobs. I also enjoy a good AU historical fic such as the old west or ancient Greece or Rome. I enjoy a good adventure wherever that may take them. I love cats and horses, so it's a plus if they're included. I enjoy stories that deal with a well-established relationship, as well as those where the relationship is new, or even the first meeting or first date. If you're on a fence, I tend to prefer longer, more detailed stories. Any season is good. I'm fine with AUs and ARs so if you want to mess with the timeline, that's okay with me, too.

Character likes/dislikes:
I'm really happy to see any of the regular characters (as long as there is no hint of Tiva). I adore Dorney, Mike Franks and feisty interactions between Fornell and Gibbs. If Sr or Jackson stops by for the holidays, that's perfectly fine, too. Tony and Gibbs are my favorite characters, along with Nick Torres. It's great if you want to include both Tony and Torres even though they didn't overlap in the series. They can run into Nick earlier, or I prefer to think Tony is off running his own team now anyway. I don't mind AUs at all so I'm fine if you put characters together that never met, or if Dorney didn't die. I prefer Kate or Ellie to Ziva (although, I do prefer the boys, so if the ladies aren't around/included that's perfectly fine). Ziva is okay as long as there is no hint of the dreaded Tiva (Tony/Ziva). Clayton is fine, but I'm not really a fan of Alex Quinn or Sloane. New member Kasie is fine, too. I even like the Sherlock Consortium if you're so inclined to include them. Also, I don't like most non-canon nicknames. For instance "Jet", "Jeth", "Tone", etc. will have me rolling my eyes and possibly groaning in agony. I do enjoy canon nicknames, so "Ziver", "Skippy" (love Skippy!), "Silver Fox", "Abs", "Dorney", or any of the multitudes of Mcwhatever nicknames Tony comes up with are fine and sometimes even awesome. In fact, the McGee nicknames are the exception. I delight in new and wonderful McNicknames, whether they're canon or not. *G*

Permitted crossovers:
I'm perfectly happy without a crossover, but if you're game, I do like NCIS New Orleans so if Pride and LaSalle drop by (as a couple or not), that's not a bad thing. I am more familiar with earlier seasons than later ones. I also like Criminal Minds, especially Morgan and Hotch, so the CM characters are fine, too. The only CM character I didn't really care for was Kate Callahan (Jennifer Love Hewitt), so prefer she not appear, but the others, I really love them all and am okay with slashy pairings, but there's certainly no need to make them part of a pairing at all. I will say that I haven't seen many of the episodes after Morgan left. I really like Tara, but am not familiar with the male characters that came on board after that. I wouldn't even mind if NCIS ran into Bull over a case. It would be interesting to see Bull and Tony meet up!

Other pairings:
I still watch NCIS and like the idea of Nick/Ellie, so if you are so inclined to write something based on later seasons, want to bring in Nick early, or keep Tony late (I really like the idea of Tony just becoming a team leader or going to the FBI instead of the whole Tali mess.) that is fine with me.

Wherever the story may take them, I would like a happy ending, please. *G*

Thanks in advance for writing something for me, I hope it's a fun assignment and I'm sure I'll adore it.

Many Thanks,
Jacie

NCIS Tony Gibbs Manip 1

YEAR IN FIC 2019

I managed to complete 10 stories this year! Wow! The last time I completed 10 stories in a year was 2014 - so 5 years ago. Although, I actually wrote more words in 2018's three stories.

3 stories in 2018 - 167,178 words
10 stories in 2019 - 94,781 words

I want to extend my gratitude and appreciation to rose_malmaison for all her beta help this year. My stories are always greatly improved by her input and typo-catching.

I also want to thank red_pink_dots who created the artwork for Winning Bid, as well as for my 2019 Big Bang story, Holding On.

Many thanks also go to sexycazzy who created the artwork for Unsettled.

NCIS Non-Challenge stories 3 stories:
Second Chances On AO3 4447 WC
One thing I noticed years ago I noticed that Delilah had the same surname as Shannon - Fielding. I wondered if the series would ever connect those families, so I waited. And waited...and waited. They still haven't, so I decided to take a stab at it. It was mostly written in 2018 as it was posted on 1 Jan 2019, but I go by posting date, so there you go.

Piano Man On AO3 1806 WC
Like Unsettled, this was an unfinished bunny from a few years ago. This was started in 2016, but where it was going hadn't really gelled. I got on a kick where I wanted to clear out some of my bunnies, especially the older ones. Usually, the older a bunny gets, the less likely it is that I'll finish it. I decided to cut this one quite a bit shorter than the original thought. Several people commented that the team was too intrusive and should give Tony and Gibbs their space.

Piano Man II On AO3 1892 WC
This came about because of the people who complained about Piano Man, where they felt the team was too intrusive. So in this one, I gave Tony and Gibbs some alone time where the team wasn't all in their space all the time. And of course, now people are complaining that Tony should continue to share his talent with the team. Can't win for losing here. There are no intentions for a Piano Man III! LOL

NCIS Red Pink Dot's Artwork Prompts Challenge 1 story:
Winning Bid On AO3 5686 WC
For this one, I really fell in love with the image created by red_pink_dots. Then cutsycat commented about auctioning Tony off for a date. I mentioned a secret bid auction would be cool so Tony wouldn't know that Gibbs had the winning bid. cutsycat then suggested I write the story. This is the result.

NCIS Big Bang 2 stories:
Holding On On AO3 43276 WC
In October 2018, while I was doing final edits on Visions, this old Ambrosia song Holdin' On to Yesterday popped into my head and I started getting images of Lonely!Tony standing on a beach thinking about his lost love. I kept mulling over the scenario and that grew into the thought that Tony and Gibbs were together before Gibbs lost his memory and left for Mexico. I decided that would be my Big Bang story for 2019. I was a good way into the story before I thought of an interesting twist! I'm always excited when I think of interesting twists. This story is mostly focused on Tony and is also a cross-over with NCIS: New Orleans, although only Pride and LaSalle who are both minor characters in this. This may also be the only story I've written that includes Reeves. I messed around with the series timeline quite a bit in this one. I tried to follow it a bit, but in removing Tony from the team early, I ended up bringing the others into the story early as well. This story also includes Torres and Bishop.
I was really excited when red_pink_dots claimed as I love her artwork, but we hadn't worked together before on either a Reverse Bang or Big Bang challenge. I appreciated that she asked for my thoughts and what my vision was. And of course, the image I'd had since the song was stuck in my head was of Lonely!Tony standing on a beach thinking about his lost love. She did an amazing job capturing that scene. I was really proud of this one, but sad that it didn't get many kudos compared to other stories. I always find it weird when my favorite stories don't do well, but I suppose I have to expect that my tastes simply don't match up with other peoples'. Although, like Whisper In The Wind, this one has received some very nice comments.

Unsettled On AO3 10,412 WC
For the first time since 2016, I completed two stories for the NCIS Big Bang/Multi-Bang challenge. Back in 2013 naemi beta'd my first NCIS Big Bang story, Playing Those Mind Games Forever and has beta'd many other stories as well. I really wanted to write her a thank you story. I started writing this back in 2014. However, I got busy with other stuff and it sat at around 2500 words for years. I finally picked it up this year, dusted it off and finished it. It's certainly shorter than originally intended, but I think it turned out okay. naemi loves Tortured!Tim, so the thought was he'd be held captive and tortured for several months to a year, but that was greatly shortened. This is a Tony/Tim story and I am glad I finally got it done. Many thanks to sexycazzy for claiming this one an creating the wonderful art for it!

NCIS SeSa 1 story:
Operation Black Cat On AO3 20,951 WC
This year, I drew cutsycat. I love getting cutsycat because I know she likes cats and I enjoy creating and writing feline characters. As soon as I saw my assignment, I was determined to include a cat, then went through her other prompts to see what else I could include. I generally do not write Kort, but cutsycat asked for Kort as knowing Tony from their youth. I figured out how to work that into an undercover scenario. As I was using Kort, I decided to choose a timeframe when he was in the series and chose the timeframe that included Tony working undercover and dating Jeanne. From the beginning, I couldn't decide whether to call the cat Ninja Kitty or Pip. But since he snuck into Tony's car, I knew Tony wouldn't know his name unless the cat had it on a collar. So, Pip was uncollared and Tony called him Ninja Kitty until he found out his name was really Pip. Pip was quite an interesting character to work with and he was quite taken both with Tony and with Kate the goldfish. I'm really happy with how this one turned out!

Happy Holidays Challenge 3 stories:
Traditions On AO3 2413 WC
I knew I was traveling around Thanksgiving, and I was determined to get my SeSa done. Fortunately, I did get my SeSa story completed before Thanksgiving. My favorite Happy Holidays theme is the one-horse open sleigh/carriage theme. I love horses and the image of a horse pulling something through the snow and wearing bells on its harness is always a pleasant one for me. While I was traveling, my brother and SiL were originally going to put me up, then decided to send me to a motel. While at the motel at night, I had time to write, and this story happened. I actually had to write it out longhand on a piece of paper. When I got home, it seemed to take forever to get it typed into the computer, but I got it done in time to post it on December 1.

Christmas In Stillwater On AO3 2519 WC
geminiangel64 had completed all 24 themes for the Happy Holidays Challenge. I also found out that she'd intended to sign up for this year's Secret Santa challenge (SeSa), but didn't. I wanted to make sure she had a story for Christmas, so this happened. I thought she'd like a nice piece of homestyle Christmas fluff. I included Jackson because he always seems so welcoming.

In Another World On AO3 1379 WC
cutsycat also completed all 24 themes for the Happy Holidays Challenge, so I wanted to write a little something for her as a thank you. She'd made a Holiday Wish for a story with Kort, so once again, I made a stab at a Kort story. So this is an alternate take on the whole Tali fiasco, now that Zahar has come to light.

Word:
Many thanks to everyone who read, left comments and kudos this year. It's far more fun to write when you know people are enjoying and appreciating your work. I'm glad that I knocked out a couple of my old bunnies - Undercover Bunny (Unsettled) and Musician Bunny (Piano Man and Piano Man II). I'll have to say that Operation Black Cat is my favorite happy story of the year and Holding On is my favorite hurt/comfort, emotional roller-coaster story of the year.

Many thanks again to my wonderful beta and artists.

Also many thanks to everyone who participated in the challenges and communities. Fandom is so much more fun with participation and people to chat with!

Annual reminder that jacie3 on LJ and jacie on DW are archives for my fan fiction. If you want to keep up and chat on a personal level, please friend my personal journal, solariana on LJ (which is mostly locked) and jacieleigh on DW. As slow as LJ and DW have been, I'm always looking for more people to chat with!

As far as new writing plans for 2020, I hope to finally complete another bunny or two. I am currently working on knocking out Plane Bunny (Lost At Sea), which is still a WIP and is being posted to encourage my Muse to get it done. I also intend to sign up for the 2019 NCIS Big Bang and SeSa again. I signed up for the Reverse Bang, but didn't make a claim as I have some RL issues that really need to be tended to in the next month or two. I have a lot of non-fandom work ahead of me.

Once again, I failed to add any more of my PopSlash stories to AO3. If anyone has any favorites they'd like to see posted at AO3, please let me know. I'm happy to add things, but there's so much and I never know where to start!

Length: 20,950 words
Summary:
Tony is working himself into exhaustion. He’s on Gibbs’ team by day and working an undercover mission for Director Shepard at night. The last thing he thought he needed was a mysterious black cat slipping into his life quite uninvited. Does the cat really exist or is it just a figment of his exhausted imagination? Will Tony ever feel well-rested again or will he continue to burn the candle at both ends? And just how will this black cat fit into his life?

My dearest Cutsycat,
When I checked my nice list this year, I saw your name was there once again 😊. I found a gift in my bag, made especially just for you, my dearest. I’ll leave it here for when you awaken. Thanks for the milk and cookies!!!
Ho, ho, ho and Merry Christmas!!!

Some dialogue passages are from the series, either directly or paraphrased. These characters are not mine and I don’t make any money from them. I just take them out and play with them now and then before returning them to their spot on the shelf.
Spoilers: S4 and S5. Slightly altered take of series events, because (as most of us know) Tony and Gibbs really do belong together 😊.

Many thanks to rose_malmaison for her beta help! Any remaining errors are my own.

I was beginning to think I hadn’t ever written Kort before, but found that I’d killed him off as the bad guy in Between A Cock and A Hard Place. Anyway, I hope I did okay. Many thanks for your participation in the Happy Holidays Challenge! I hope you have a Happy Holiday Season and a fantastic 2020!

My Happy Holidays gift from starwatcher307!

I love this sooooo much! And if you go through and read the story, you might even find a little spoiler surprise. But since it's spoilery, you don't want to see it until you've finished reading the story. *G*. But seriously, this is what I imagined with the full moon and all. Many thanks to starwatcher307 for bringing art to this story!
