My thoughts: I don't usually like reading WIPs but this one sucked me right in and took hold of me. The basic storyline is Tony being accosted and nearly killed one night because he's gay. The team rushes to his aid with concern-- and with good reason; he's practically dead. Beyond being a dark story, the truth of how Tony likes Gibbs comes out and Gibbs isn't at all sure how to react to that news. And that's the beauty of the story right there-- the awkward but true affection amidst such a crisis. It's not an immediate happy, fluffy love story. There's struggle and characters are given the easy ways out but don't necessarily choose to take them. The characters feel so true to the series. And I just can't get enough of the overwhelming hurt/comfort elements.

At this moment it's only posted up through chapter 7 but so far it's very enjoyable.

I've only read a very small handful of NCIS fics, but if this is what the fandom puts out, I'm going to have to change that. Talk about ripping my heart out! I really hope that this one continues to get updated on a regular basis.
