The LCIS Series by elyssblair

Title:  The LCIS Series: 66 Pounds of Pressure  and The Tameness of a Wolf
Author: elyssblair
Fandom:  AU NCIS and Numb3rs
Pairing:  Gibbs/Dinozzo, Tim/OC, Charlie Epps/Ian Edgerton
Rating: Mature
Warnings:  Canon-level violence
Genre: Action/Adventure, Romance, Shifters, Agnst
Word Count: 48,908  and 29,075, respectively

Summary:

In a world where wolf-shifters are a known and accepted part of society, shifters form packs within families or in a work-place setting. Even if the pack is created within a workplace setting, it is still family. For most shifters, pack is everything, though they can and do form friendships with humans. There are a few lone wolves, but they are distrusted.

 Why You Should Read This:

This is two stories (so far). The first, 66 Pounds of Pressure, is an AU of NCIS, the second, The Tameness of a Wolf is an AU of Numb3rs in the same universe.  In this world (which is nicely built, BTW), the wolves are as intelligent as the human, but when in wolf form their instincts (as well as their senses) are far more canine. Shifting is easy to do anytime, but full moon is a time to let the wolf take over and renew bonds with the pack.

Each of the stories contains a case to be solved as well as interpersonal troubles. Tony Dinozzo is uncertain of his position within his pack and with his alpha, Gibbs.  Charlie Epps spends most of his time in human form, for the most part ignoring the needs of his wolf, and is disturbed by his attraction to Ian Edgerton, a lone wolf. Both stories are fun and a pleasure to recommend.

 

 

Not That Simple by slashscribe

Title: Not That Simple
Author:  slashscribe
Fandom: NCIS
Pairing: Gibbs/Dinozzo
Rating:  NC-17
Warnings:  Severe illness, Permanent disability, Violence
Genre: Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Angst, First time.
Word Count: 96,579

Summary:

While working a case, Tony begins to feel sick, and then he wakes up with some startling symptoms. Luckily, Gibbs is there every step of the way.

 Why You Should Read This:

This is a long, very realistic exposition on how someone like Tony deals with serious illness and permanent disability. He goes through layers of anger, depression, acceptance, and back to anger and depression again as he learns to deal with his new life.  The only good thing about it all is that Tony’s illness is the catalyst that allows Gibbs to finally admit how he feels about him.  There are no miracle cures, just adjustments to new realities, both good and bad.  I enjoyed it quite a bit.

Warnings:  Death of major character, Explicit violence, Explicit sex
Genre:  Vampires that do NOT sparkle, even a little bit, Action/Adventure,  Drama

Summary:

Death is just the beginning….

Why You Should Read This:

Like many people, I am very fond of Xanthe’s BDSM universe but, truth to tell, this is my favorite Xanthe story.  It is totally Gibbs and totally Tony and some decent vampires for a change.  The only thing I don’t like about it is it’s too damned short, but Xanthe is threatening to write more in this ‘verse  so that’s okay.
