Summary: Everyone has a soul animal, but the ability to see them has faded. Harvey possesses not only the ability to see them but also to transform into his own soul animal. Harvey likes to think of himself as the cat that walks by himself, but that changes when he meets Mike Ross, and comes face to face with the rarest soul animal of all…

Author’s Notes: This story was inspired by this picture from Tumblr initially - I saw it and thought it looked like Mike cuddling a cat and then this idea just came to me, and I couldn't resist writing it.  It was one of those lovely stories that completely flowed, and I finished it in one day (with extra editing time a few days later!). The idea took on a life of its own and evolved a long way beyond the picture. Harvey-the-cat doesn't look like this one in my story!

Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] jaccigirl and [livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth for loving this fic so much and encouraging me to post it, and a big special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] tingreca for beta.

Extract:

If Harvey hadn’t had the Specter gift for seeing into a person’s soul and glimpsing the true self within, then he would have sent Mike Ross packing the minute he showed up for a job interview carrying a bag full of weed. The reason he didn’t was because he looked into Mike’s soul and saw something he’d never seen before - and it shocked him to his core.

He’d heard the legends, of course. His grandmother used to hold him between her forelegs and wash his furry kitten head with little rasps of her iguana tongue when he was only a child. It was she who had showed him how one could love a soul very different to oneself.

When they both changed back into human form, she would hold him close, rock him in her armchair, and tell him stories about the world that hardly anyone else had ever heard.

“People with this kind of soul animal are very rare,” she told him. “I’ve never seen one, but I hear they do exist. There are maybe a handful of them out there, with a new one born only every generation.”

“But I don’t understand.” Harvey turned curious eyes to gaze up at her. “How is it even possible? And how does it work?”

“Like I said, I have no idea. I’ve never met one. Maybe you will, one day, and if you do, it will be a remarkable thing. People with these souls are as special as they are rare. They often achieve great things - and those things can be terrible or beautiful, or sometimes both.”

Harvey had dismissed all this as simply myth and folklore, until he met Mike Ross.

Mike had stumbled into his room, all boyish charm, bad suit, and messy hair, and dropped his suitcase of weed all over the floor, and Harvey had been about kick him out when Mike had suddenly looked at him with those bright blue eyes, and Harvey had seen his soul animal… and stopped dead in astonishment.

This scruffy kid was one of those his grandmother had told him about, one of those with the rare, special souls, with the capacity to do great harm or great good.

For Mike Ross’s soul animal was…

Thank yous: To[livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_starand[livejournal.com profile] taylorgibbsfor beta and to Nikita, Hilde and Sue for audiencing.
Author’s Notes: This story is for[livejournal.com profile] dinky_di_1who made the winning icon in the Gibbs category. This icon was also voted best overall in the iContest, and I can see why. The idea is simple, the execution flawless and the use of that particular picture sublime. I’m glad I didn’t try and write this story too soon – it needed to wait until after Restless aired.

Summary: Tony’s known Gibbs a very long time – but not as long as Gibbs has known him.

Last time I posted a story I fell down some steps and broke my leg. I really hope the slash fairy is with me and nothing bad happens this time. It’s been four months since I last posted a story, for obvious reasons, but now that I’m walking and writing again, there is at last new fic. Fingers crossed…and here goes!

Part One: Hostile Takeover Bid
Part Two: Counterclaim
Part Three: Merger

Author’s Notes: Here is this year’s Xanthe Christmas fic offering. It’s long, snowy, angsty and schmoopy, and it is my Christmas present to all you kind people who have left me so much lovely feedback to my stories during the year. Thank you so much!

Summary: Gibbs has left NCIS and is living in a remote cabin on a snowy mountainside. But what secret is he hiding in his isolated hideaway?

Extract: He places a finger against Tony’s neck and feels a faint, erratic pulse. Then he hears a rattling sound and watches as Tony struggles to take a breath; his lungs must be giving up. His chest falls, and there's a long pause – too long – before it rises again.

A rasping sound fills the air as Tony tries to take another breath…and fails. His chest stays still. Unmoving.

"Tony?" Gibbs searches for a pulse again but finds none. "Tony!"

Author’s Notes: I may not be up to much at the moment, but I did manage to squeeze out a spanky crack fic with a side order of angst ;-). It's not beta'd! It's too small and silly for that! It's just a bit of fun.

Many thanks to: [livejournal.com profile] tejas and [livejournal.com profile] annieb1955 for beta. And to [livejournal.com profile] nikitariddick, [livejournal.com profile] flyingnorth, [livejournal.com profile] bluespirit_star and Haggy for audiencing. I am enormously grateful to you all for your kindness, support, feedback, constructive criticism and help. All mistakes are mine.

Summary: Gibbs is a top with a desperate need to atone for his past mistakes and a habit of collaring the members of his team. Tony is a sub who distrusts all tops and has never yet agreed to wear any top’s collar, not even in play. Sparks fly when they meet for the first time – but will Gibbs be able to protect Tony from a past that is rapidly catching up with him, and will Tony ever trust Gibbs enough to wear his collar?

Author’s notes:  This fic might be a tad controversial. I've tried to find a plausible explanation for the way Tony has been portrayed on NCIS since around mid-season 6. I believe it's a valid interpretation of the character’s viewpoint, but not everyone will like it (which is fine!). This story is all from Tony's pov; I've deliberately kept the viewpoints and motivations of the other characters ambiguous (rather like the show!) so please don't think I'm judging any of the other characters. I think this story has a happy ending, but it's not the usual kind of happy ending I do.
Many thanks to: [livejournal.com profile] tejas for beta, and [livejournal.com profile] nikitariddick for encouragement. Any mistakes are my own.
Summary:  Tony is injured working a case – and comes to a shocking realisation.
Extract: “So, some psycho is holding your team hostage… he’s got a machine gun, and you know he’s a killer because he’s murdered two people already. He’s standing right there, just beneath you, and you have a clear shot - but you hesitate. Why is that, Tony?”

Saying goodbye to Abby had been hard, but he knew that this final farewell would be the hardest of all.

Summary: It’s Christmas…and Tony has a fascination with Gibbs’s hands.
Author’s Notes: I must admit it’s really me who has a fascination with Gibbs’s hands *g*. This story grew out of a discussion that I had on the subject with [livejournal.com profile] lantean_drift on my birthday. It’s been brewing up ever since and I finally gave into it and wrote it. It was supposed to be just a little Xmas fic but it kind of grew. It’s unbeta’d so please forgive any errors and accept it as my little present to all the people who have been so kind and generous in sending me feedback these past few months since I started writing again.
Extract: They were the hands of a craftsman who could coax smooth curves out of solid wood and the hands of a killer who could caress a gun into perfect working order. They were working hands, creative hands, patient hands. They were hands that knew how to get the best out of wood, and guns, and…him.

Author’s Notes: There’s no slash pairing in this, just an almighty punishment spanking and I’m not saying *who* gets spanked as that’d give a major plot point away *g*. There is a strong element of Tony/Tim friendship in this fic though – I’ll give that much away!
Thanks to: Aisling K and Sasha for the truly inspiring stories they’ve posted this week.
Summary: Tim and Tony fall out following a disastrous stakeout, and Gibbs reveals a truly unique approach to team building...
