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…

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.

Summary: His clothes feel strange against his skin after three years wearing prison overalls, but the sky is blue and the sun is shining – it’s a good day to start a new life.

Author’s Notes: This story is for[livejournal.com profile] theeverdreamwho made the winning icon in the Gibbs/Tony romance category. When I looked at this icon, the two things that struck me were a) why is Tony wearing that big sweater and b) what sneaky, secret thing are Gibbs and Tony smiling about? So I wrote this to explain the two!

Summary: “Tony, the sun is shining, the sky is blue, and it’s 80 degrees out here! Why on earth are you wearing that giant sweater?”

Author’s notes: “Fairytale of New York” by the Pogues and the late, great Kirsty MacColl is my favourite Christmas song. And what could be more natural than a fusion of that song with a Gibbs/DiNozzo story? Uh, well, lots of things I suspect! This story doesn’t attempt to capture the storyline of the song (!!!), but is more a homage to it, with some actual lines of the song popping up here and there for those eagle-eyed enough to spot them. The song lyrics and the song itself can be found on my website here. Thank you for indulging me in this particular piece of bonkersness!

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?”
