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.
