Friday Free-For-All

Heya, folks, seasons greetings and all that crap. It be Friday, so we get some room to play today! The sky is the limit, as it were, except for a few rules we need to just remind y'all about:

NO spoilers in prompts for at least one week after airing. Also, if your response contains spoilers, please warn for them and leave at least 3 empty lines before starting your fic.

Also, to make sure everyone gets a chance to prompt... no more than five prompts in a row, no more than 3 per fandom. You can always come back and prompt more after yours have been answered.

Please remember to be kind to you code monkeys (who work hard at a job that is time consuming) and code your prompts properly (fandom, pairing, prompt).


Numb3rs, Colby/Charlie, The first time Colby called him "Professor"

Criminal Minds/Leverage, Reid/Eliot, "It's getting hot in here..."

Don't see anything that whets your appetite? Check out our lonely prompts archive here on delicious for some amazing ideas that just haven't been given homes yet.

Also, gird your loins, because next week is the start of yet another Quarterly Year Challenge, where we give you no prompts but instead offer lovely prizes to get you to write some of the prompts piling up in our archives.

Ready? Prompt!

NCIS, Tony/Gibbs + team, they didn't realise that the team knew about their relationship and are slowly finding out.

(ie. different ways that Tony and Gibbs find out that their friends know about them - eg Abby slips up, or Ducky tells Gibbs straight or whatever - can be serious or can be funny! Up to you!)

Gibbs/Tony Glass Closets 1/2
When Abby calls Tony at three am, explaining that her car has broken down at the club and can he please come pick her up, he thinks nothing of it. He's still half asleep, so when she says, "Tell the Bossman sorry for disturbing you guys," he says, "He's already asleep again," without even thinking about it.

It's only once he's hung up that he realizes what he said, and Gibbs winds up having to pick Abby up, because Tony is freaking out, frantically packing up all of his stuff and insisting that it's too dangerous, and he can't come over anymore.

He leaves while Gibbs is getting Abby, and Gibbs winds up spending the rest of the night convincing his second in command to move back in. Somehow, a few extra pieces of clothes becomes half of Tony's wardrobe, and they wind up having to bring more of Gibbs' stuff to Tony's to make room for it all. By the end of the night, they're each keeping about half their stuff in the other's house.

Abby promises the next morning not to tell anyone, although she squeals about it privately and asks both of them questions (ranging from "How did you get together?" to "You guys ever try using your handcuffs?", which gets her a splutter from Tony and a calm, "Not yet," from Gibbs).

A couple of weeks later, they wind up liasoning with the local PD on a case. Gibbs is coming out of the crime scene to put away some evidence when he overhears Ducky lecturing the head detective. "That reminds me of a friend I have, who, quite recently, in fact, realized that he was in love with one of his subordinates. The poor boy followed him around constantly, worshipped the ground he walked on, but he was too afraid to-"

"Duck! Time of death?" Gibbs asks, appearing beside the good doctor and distracting him before he can fill the officer in on any more details of Gibbs' private life.

"I haven't seen the body yet, as you well know, Jethro. I was just telling this lovely young man-" Ducky continues.

"Not now!" Gibbs says, startling even himself. "I want to know when this guy died, and I want to know how."

"Very well, Jethro," Ducky says, completely unruffled, as he heads into the house.

Later, back at headquarters, Gibbs goes down to Autopsy.

"Honestly, Jethro, I'm good, but I'm no miracle worker. Mr. Palmer got us lost on the way back, and I've only just now gotten the body on the table," Ducky tells Gibbs with fond exasperation.

"Not what I'm here about, Duck," Gibbs says. He looks over at Palmer, who disappears before he can say anything.

"Look, Duck," Gibbs begins, strangely nervous. "That story you were telling the LEO down at the scene..." he trails off, not wanting to admit anything.

"You'd rather I didn't discuss you and Anthony, even obliquely?" Ducky asks, his tone mild and not at all accusing, or judgemental.

Gibbs lets himself relax. "Yeah. I know we aren't military, but we're close, and-"

"I understand perfectly, Jethro. I won't say another word about it. Now, about our young man-" And everything is back to normal. Gibbs is surprised, even though he shouldn't be. Ducky is one of the least judgemental people he knows.

A few days later, Gibbs leaves his glasses on his desk when he goes home. They're between cases, so Tony and Tim have been downstairs hanging out with Abby before they headed out. When they get back upstairs, Tim notices the glasses and nonchalantly hands them to Tony. "You'd better bring these to Gibbs," he says, as if there's nothing odd about it at all.

Tony's so shocked that the Probie's already in the elevator before he gathers enough wits to respond. He catches the younger man in the elevator the next morning, and threatens his life if this appears in one of his books. Tim tells him "That's what fanfiction is for," and Tony spends a totally unproductive (but very worthwhile) day surfing the internet, reading stories about he and his lover's alternate egos. He even takes notes on a few of them.

Gibbs/Tony Glass Closets 2/2
For a spy, Ziva is extremely unobservant. They've already celebrated six months before Tony comes in one morning having used Gibbs' shampoo, his own being empty. Ziva gestures for Gibbs to follow her into the elevator, stops it herself, and says, very calmly, "It wouldn't be the first time someone died in this elevator, you know."

Gibbs just looks at her, and finally she continues, "He is my partner. If you hurt him, I will destroy you."

"You'd damn well better," Gibbs tells her, and that's that. He doesn't bother reminding her that it's a secret- Ziva knows a thing or two about those already.

So they're out but not out with the team, and they're happy with that, until Fornell shows up one day and blows the whole thing to hell. When Gibbs sees him, he goes straight to the elevator, growling, "DiNozzo didn't do it," in place of a greeting.

"I know," Fornell tells him calmly. "These days, he's got a built in alibi."

Gibbs very pointedly doesn't react to Fornell's look as he says it, asking instead, "Why are you here?" They discuss the case for a few minutes, and when Gibbs comes back up to the bullpen, Tobias follows him up, sitting down on the edge of Tony's desk and speaking quietly.

The way DiNozzo pales causes Tim to look at him in alarm. "Are you okay, Tony?" he asks across the room.

"You aren't being arrested again, are you?" Ziva says teasingly.

Tony just shakes his head, never taking his eyes off of Fornell. When they get home that evening, Tony explains to Gibbs that he'd basically been given Tobias' version of the lecture Ziva gave Gibbs in the elevator. They laugh over it, although a slightly green Tony refuses to tell Gibbs what, exactly, Fornell threatened him with.

It's when Gibbs goes, by himself, for coffee one morning on the way to work that they give up even pretending to be discreet. The waitress fixes his drink exactly how he wants it, then makes another, winking as she tells him, "Your boyfriend's usual."

Gibbs thinks about storming out with the drinks, but in the end he gives Tony the coffee, and tells him the story, and they decide they might as well stop pretending. They go upstairs to tell Vance, who looks from one of them to the other and asks, "Do you have any news?"

Re: Gibbs/Tony Glass Closets 2/2
I just found this, and it was wonderful. Keeping secrets from their team? So not realistic. I loved the casual, 'oh, by the way' manner that the others revealed their knowledge. As if it wasn't a big deal, just business as usual.

But my favorite bit? "The waitress fixes his drink exactly how he wants it, then makes another, winking as she tells him, "Your boyfriend's usual." Yup, I can see that happening.

Excellent story. :)
