A bad childhood leaves no foundation to stand on when a long series of events, including malice on the part of a team mate, wear Tony down to the point that he is once more considering suicide.  Instead, he checks himself into Bethesda.

Why You Should Read This:

This is a well written story by someone who knows a lot about therapy, suicide, depression and recovery.  Tony’s lucky and gets a damned good doctor, but climbing out of the hole he finds himself in is difficult.  There is no quick fix, no “love solves everything”, just damned hard work.

If you really like Ziva or Jenny Shepard, you won’t like this.  If you think that all dom/sub relationships should be portrayed as healthy, you won’t like this.  If, like me, casual religiosity in characters that seems  OOC annoys you, you will probably wince a bit.  It does wander into pretty serious schmaltz near the end.

But in spite of some minor aspects of the story that I found mildly irritating,  I am still reccing this because it is a good solid story, well told.  Tony, his past, his relationships with the members of his team,  his feelings for Gibbs, his reasons for nearly deciding to kill himself, are all realistic and very much in character.   It is not light reading, but I enjoyed it very much.

There is a sequel that is WIP, 65 chapters and counting,  that I have not yet read but plan to.

Abby turned her big, miserable eyes up to his. “I think I broke Gibbs.”

It’s frigging ADORABLE. The part about the warrant tickled the hell out of me.

Tony and Gibbs hadn’t even heard of “imprinting” until a case of domestic abuse and murder brings it to their attention.  Descriptions of the symptoms seem rather familiar and make them both more than a little uneasy.

Why You Should Read This:

This is a different take on soulmate/soul bonding stories.  In this world, science has only just become aware that some people imprint.  It’s a quirk of biology that is not universally known and not considered important enough to spend money to investigate.  And it has bitten Tony and Gibbs on the ass big time.

In most fan fic of this type, even if one or both soulmates considered themselves straight, they fall immediately into sex with their new partner.  It doesn’t happen here.  Even though neither is offended by the presence of gay people in society, they themselves are straight.  Yet each of the men has had some pretty weird stuff going on for them sexually for the last year or so, including no actual sex and a certain someone suddenly appearing in masturbatory fantasies.  These are not things they can actually talk to anyone about, of course,  because men.

Getting to where they can deal with their bond, up to and including sex, is not easy for them, and makes an interesting and appealing story.
