Oooh, that looks interesting! ::sigh:: Alas, I've no time to read it now but I will definitely be back later tonight. ;P

Have now read story. Yay!

Great AU, especially since I am particularly fond of How Tony Got Hired fics. ;) Poor Tony though. He goes through all that trouble, gets hated on by his coworkers at BPD, gets shot and nearly blown up... and when he finally gets the guy, Gibbs pulls back on him? No way! Nah, this DiNozzo isn't going to sit patiently waiting for Gibbs to make a move. This DiNozzo is going to engage in a full-out campaign of seduction until Gibbs snaps and pounces. Oh hell yeah. *eg*

BTW, I really liked your Alison character. Actually, I was a bit surprised by the ending because I totally wasn't expecting Arnett Senior to be the bad guy -- for some reason, I was half-way convinced Alison's dad the General was in on it. Huh. ::shrugs::

Thanks so much! I'm glad you enjoyed it.

Of course Gibbs pulled back--he always has to be difficult. ;-) But there's no way Tony will let a little thing like Rule Number 12 stop him.

I'm glad you liked Alison. I was trying really hard not to make her a Mary Sue.

As for Arnett Senior being the one trying to kill Tony, it just seemed to me to be something that might happen in the show. Have everyone assume it was the marines, when actually someone else with a grudge was using the situation to his advantage.

Oh i liked this! I'm always a fan of people out to get Tony (any way, any how), and i thought that having him as a Detective while everyone else was already working for NCIS was a refreshing take on that particular storyline, as well as the whole recruiting him process.

The plot kept me hooked throughout...though you are a tease to end the story there! Lol! I don't know if i want you to write more to satisfy the 'what happens next between Gibbs and Tony' or whether i like the fact you've left it to our imagination about how Tony will get Gibbs to break the rule.

I thought Alison was sweet and strong (though i panicked that you might go the stalker route with her and was very glad you didn't), and loved the way you wrote not just your original characters, but everyone. I could very definitely hear the characters speaking in my head!

Thank you for a very enjoyable read!

Thank you! :-)

I wanted to stay as true to the show as I could, with just a couple of twists. ;-) Wow, I didn't even think about Alison possibly being a stalker. And yes, I admit I'm a complete tease.

I'm really glad you enjoyed the story. Thanks so much for reviewing.

really liked this fic a lot :) I havn't read ncis fic in over a year, then i found this and couldn't resist. And i'm glad! you've re-awakened my love for the fandom! Really loved the way the plot line flowed, and i reallly liked allison too! I have to admit, i had a feeling that her father might have been involved too, you really kept me guessing till the last minute!

really loved the way gibbs and tony interacted in this fic, they had this really nice kinda carefree banter happening between them, and i loved that tony was still a detective.

was really dissapointed with gibbs in the end, poor tony only getting a couple of kisses and then being knocked back.......any chance of a sequel to resolve just how he is going to break rule 12?

Thank you very much! I'm really happy that I managed to keep you guessing. It was my first attempt at a "case fic," and it made me appreciate the writers of crime dramas more than I had before. ;-)

Aww, yeah Gibbs is going to be difficult. But I have every confidence that Tony will be able to convince him that some rules are just made to be broken. :-) (No current plans for a sequel, but I won't say never...)

Thanks again for commenting. I really appreciate it.
