A word of warning, this story does not fit neatly into any specific prefabricated category. In fact, I seriously doubt there’s a real audience out there for this one. While I confess I wrote it for myself with no regard for anyone else, I am willing to share with the handful of people who might actually enjoy it. I realized there are a lot of folks out there who only read fill in the blank, so you might need to know a couple of things before you decide if this is worth your time.
First of all, it’s not exactly a crossover. It’s more of an NCIS story with a visitor from Stargate SG1. Just a hint, it’s not Jack, Sam, or Teal’c (LOL!) although they do make brief appearances. This might sound like a better deal for the NCIS fans, except I rely heavily on the back story of Daniel’s ascension and subsequent return… just not overtly. Confused yet? That’s okay, because Daniel isn’t even Daniel for most of the fic.
And then there’s the slash aspect. If you’re a die hard slasher in it for the sex, you’re definitely barking up the wrong tree here. It’s true I am a fade-to-black girl at heart, but this one barely registers on the slashometer at all. OTPers? Forget it, no Jack/Daniel. No Gibbs/Dinozzo. On the other hand, true-blue genners are gonna say ‘Hey! My character would never say-do-think that’.
The idea for this fic came out of the desire to explore Kate’s question to Tony in Dead Man Talking after he inadvertently made out with a he/she; ‘So what was it like to tongue a guy?’ (I mean really, doesn’t she know?) It’s not that I hate Kate, I don’t! I just think she got a little mean towards the end of the season. Apologies if it comes off as Kate bashing, that’s not what I intended at all, I just call ‘em like I see ‘em. As for Daniel’s involvement in this whole sordid affair, I couldn’t think of a more talented tongue, so for me, it was a no-brainer.
I have kept exposition of the characters to a minimum, and yes, I did it on purpose. Other than the fact that I couldn’t make myself do the requisite ‘Leroy Jethro Gibbs, ex-marine and now leader of the crack Naval Criminal Investigative… yadda… yadda… yadda…’, I tried to write the story in such a way that it didn’t matter. So from whichever fandom you’re coming I optimistically, humbly, foolishly hope you won’t need those introductions to understand what’s going on. That was my goal anyway.
So who might actually like this story? Well, if there are any bi-fictional readers out there who adore NCIS and SG1, Tony and Daniel in particular, we may be on to something.
