Why This Must Be Read:

As an fan of Tony's knows, sometimes you have to take the small fragments of his personality that the writers give us and read a lot more into them. They don't often show him being a good agent, but we see flashes of brilliance and we know Gibbs wouldn't keep him around if he wasn't. They show him alientating people almost all the time...but we've also seen him get information out of a suspect or a witness when the rest of the team came up dry.

One of the reason I like pixie_on_acid's stories so much is that she weaves these fragments of Tony into a coherent, interesting whole better than anyone else I've ever read. Certainly better than I have done myself. Her stories show Tony as I desperately wish we could see him on screen. I know this is the character that lives behind the thin facade that is all TPTB will show us. pixie_on_acid's Tony is absolutely in character, and yet he is also so much more.

This isn't my favorite story of hers. I already recced that one during my turn on crack_van and I was trying to avoid duplicates. I chose this story to rec because it features Gibbs coming to a realization about Tony and laying out, in his own mind, the kind of man Tony is. I'm quietly hoping that reading this fic may indoctrinate more people into writing this kind of Tony.

This is one of my favorite stories too, as is her other story you recommended... both are either in my Memories or on my Favorite Stories list.

I like your taste. :)
