Author Notes: This is the first story a mini series of four double drabbles. And for the first time in all my years of writing fanfic, I'm not quite certain what genre to use for them.
Given that I've seen more than one person use the 'Suitable for everyone' when a het pairing is merely mentioned, then really these are pretty much into that category. Any pairing (slash or het) that is mentioned is pretty much only implied, i.e. there is nothing on-screen (apart from one kiss that really could be platonic/friendship). The main focus of each story is Gen, with a vague mention/hint/inference/if you squint slash and/or het.
Having said that, if you wish to the first can be read as Abby/McGee, the other three Gibbs/Ducky. But the relationships are not the focus of any of the stories, nor are they 'on-screen'.
It was over.
His time as 'Probie' was over. Although Gibbs had once told him that Mike Franks still referred to him as 'Probie'.
But that was different.
He's always wanted it; hoped for it.
But now it had happened – he wasn't sure.
Especially as it hadn't happened in the way he'd thought it would happen.
Tony, blaming himself for the death of the Director, also pissed with Gibbs and Ducky for what they'd done, what they'd known, for how they'd joined forces with Fornell to find out the truth about Jasper Shepard and the death of La Grenouille, had simply handed Gibbs his badge and gun, told his ex-boss exactly what he thought of him and had walked out.
He wouldn't be coming back. He'd made that quite clear.
Tim wishes him well. He'll miss him. He really will.
It was over.
The end of an era.
Now a new era has begun.
He looks at Abby. "Can I do it, Abby?" he asks quietly. "Can I be Gibbs's senior agent?"
She smiles. Through the tears she'd shed, first for Jenny Shepard, and then when Tony had left, she smiles. "Of course you can, Tim," she says, and kisses him.
