I was a bit worried when Chris started bouncing on the bed. It was sweet, though, how Tim didn't mind. However, I do hope Chris won't see his little sister as a trampoline.

A very nice chapter that brought some normalcy to Tim; the way Matt and Christ sat with him.

A stay at his friends' would be perfect: both for Tim and for Ducky who wouldn't need to worry - he earns a break, too.

Now, there only remains his former team. :hyper:

As long as Chris wasn't constantly jumping on him, Tim liked seeing him there. It was good to have some normalcy as you say. Tim needs that...and yes, so does Ducky.

The team is coming. Tim has to get himself straightened out first.

Tim really has come a long long way.

Good for him to be home...and catch sight of...the desk. :yesyes:
He can't but keep it. He does seem to be awed by its beauty. Will he finally see how Gibbs hopes Tim will accept his apologies?

I love how you described his emotions at seeing his desk and his typewriter. :flirtysmile:

BTW: I'm not sure, but didn't you have a picture of what the desk looked like? ;) Unless I dreamt it. ;D

Yes, he has. :yes:

Tim is shocked to see it there and isn't sure just what to do about it...but he has time to think about it now. Lots of time, and he will.

If I had a picture of it, I don't remember because I can't see one now. :)

I caught up with this earlier today, but I’m trying to get some SeSa reviews done before the big reveal.

This has long been one of very favourite series of yours, and I’ve loved how you’ve given Tim a realistic road back to recovery, it was always going to long and hard, but at least now he really is seeing that his life has worth and meaning.

I’m glad Tim showed Ducky just how much his support has meant throughout his struggles, and that Ducky left him in no doubt that he would do it all again if necessary to help his friend. I enjoyed seeing Matt and Chris again too, although Tim’s tachycardia was rather worrying...Tim’s home now, and he’s seen Gibbs’ gift, I hope he finds it in himself to accept the desk; it will demolish one of the last barriers between himself and the team.

Wonderful chapters, thanks for sticking with this during the festive season! :clap: :clap:

I'm glad you've enjoyed it, Madeline! I don't know how much longer the story will be, but there are quite a few things that have to be resolved still. :D

Tim has made excellent progress in his recovery, and yes, it had to take a long time. Longer than I thought it would, but it worked better. :)

I've been inspired with getting this story done. Hopefully within the next month. :yes:

Another update! :yesyes: I do love Matt and Judith, they have been so good at grounding Tim during some of his crises...and Matt’s comment “Once around the house chasing Chris would tire anyone out.”, so true! Tim playing with Chris and running out of energy so fast is a very good way of depicting how far he still has to go on the road to full fitness.

It seems that just as Tim is ready to make decisions about his future relationships with his former team mates something comes along to throw a spanner in the works...I hope Vance is going to be understanding of Tim’s current situation, and boy oh boy, do I hope Tim and Gibbs are able to come to a true rapprochement when they have their talk.

I don't think I'll make it before New Year's, but I'm trying to finish this story very soon. :yes:

I love my OCs, too. There's actually a family around here who have adopted 10 kids. So I have a great model...although I actually just thought of it. :)

Tim is making it, slowly but surely. He has a long way to go, but he'll get there. Who knows? Maybe what Vance has to tell Tim will be helpful. ...okay, I know. :D

A pivotal conversation done in very honest style, no magic wand to make everything better, but some candid words, sometimes almost dragged out of them opening doors which may lead to a new beginning for the two of them.

I thought this was an important little moment “I told you to do what you wanted with it,” Tim said. Gibbs did do what he wanted with the desk, he waited until it was time to give it to the man it was made for...and for the man to be ready to accept it.

I loved that Matt had been ‘hovering’ just to be sure Tim was okay; now another hurdle...Vance, I hope he has good news for Tim.

I'm glad you noticed that moment, Madeline. I didn't telegraph it, but that was really important because Gibbs was saying exactly what you said...only not so explicitly. Tim was ready and they both knew what he was saying when he accepted the desk. He'll say it right out, but not just yet.

...and Matt wouldn't ever leave Tim to deal with Gibbs by himself if he didn't need to. :)

Oh dear...now I’m torn. I think it would be good in a way for Tim to work with Gibbs and the others again, just to prove to himself that he can...but the Norfolk post sounds as if it could be so much better for him in the long run, Alex was good for him, and he could be a good SFA...whatever he decides I hope he gets to spend some quality time with his friends, because they are his friends even though they made some bad mistakes.

Good to see Vance admitting his own errors, it was an operation that caused a lot of people a lot of soul searching.
I liked the little bit with Ducky too, you write their conversations, and companionable silences so well. :yes:

Is it time to hear Tim’s decision yet? ;D

Well, if it makes you feel any better, I've known what Tim's decision would be since the beginning of this story. :) ...and you don't have long to wait. I may get it done today...maybe not. :)

Vance knows that he could have handled the assignment better. If he had told Gibbs in private and hashed out their problems from the start, it probably would have made for a better beginning.

It's been a vast improvement: the return of Tim's sense of humor is what struck me most in this chapter.

Besides, if he can spend a considerable amount of time in a household with two kiddies (one still a baby and the other a hyper boy)...he can tackle anything, I'm sure.

He can't have failed but notice that he's more than welcome back to NCIS.

Now you've made me really curious about his answer: what will it be?

A very nice chapter which leads Tim back to his old life. :dance: :clap:

He's had some of his sense of humor before, but it's coming back in full force as he's recovering. ...but the house is big enough that Tim can avoid the two kiddies if he wants to.

He also knows that he's more or less welcome at NCIS. It's not about that.

Yep, he made the right decision, going back to the team would be exactly that, going back, he’s come so far Tim needs to keep moving forward, and the possibility of Senior Field Agent status should attract him more than being the perennial Probie.

I loved how you constructed the chapter, leading us slowly towards the reveal...the scene in Autopsy was both funny and moving, and the team reactions when they heard Tim’s decision were spot-on, I’m glad they’re going to keep in touch, they’re good for each other!

The little bit at the end with Gibbs was the icing on the cake, superb!

Exactly. In the last story, I thought about bringing Tim back to DC, but in the end, it just seemed better for him to be at Norfolk in a good working situation. Jamie works well with the MCRT in DC and things can continue to change rather than being forced back into the way they were.

I did want to make a gradual reveal rather than just say it at the beginning, but I wanted it to be clear that Tim was sure he'd made the right decision even though you didn't know what it was yet. Putting all those little scenes in is what I wanted to use to show just how far Tim had come.

There's not much left of the story to tell. Actually, I was surprised at how much was resolved in that one chapter. :) It may end up that the next chapter will be the final one. I'm not sure yet.

The final chapter and epilogue are up. I wanted them separate, but I decided not to delay posting the epilogue. It was so hard to figure out how to end this series. Honestly, it could have gone on forever, and maybe I'll come back to it again sometime in the future, but right now, the story is over...at least the part I'll be writing down. :)

I'm so sorry I didn't post as regularly as I used to. :(

So Tim has made his choice and stays in Norfolk. I'm glad the others understand and respect his decision.

That dinner night at Gibbs' place: that was great. Like the old days.

So now both Tony and Tim have green agents to train. :dancing: Agent Pussy Pants? :inquisitive: Oh, the poor boy...
Agent Murphy an MA in History? Not a Doctorate? Now I'm disappointed. :D

I was a bit suprised Tim told Murphy about what happened to him. Of course, he must've known the young man would understand and maybe take a lesson from this.

Quote:
“And that stack of files isn’t going to get any smaller if you stand in here gaping at me.”

Quote:
“I don’t want to go back. I want to go forward.”

His making such remarks does show how much stronger he's come out of his ordeal.

Calm. And happy again.

He made it! :confetti:

:clap: :text-bravo: :10:1010:

I'm glad you liked how it ended. Tim being willing to reveal, even vaguely, what he went through is a good sign of his recovery. (And did you notice the name of Tony's green agent?)

...and yes, Agent Murphy only has an MA. :D He's only 24. ;D

I wanted to show how all the pieces of his life had come back together...and the story ends with him at his desk...and then with Ducky.

A wonderful conclusion, full of lovely touches; a look at how the MCRT in DC is getting on with their new recruit, someone who can tell Tim he’s impressed the Tim returned to NCIS, re-visiting some old case, Norfolk finally getting the MCRT, loved Alex’s reaction and Tim’s “I’m excited. I’m just letting you do the celebrating.”

Tim certainly has risen like a phoenix from the ashes of the broken man he was during Schism, the road has been long and has had more than a few twists and turns, but he’s where he belongs doing a job he loves, and it looks as if he’s going to be a great mentor to Agent Murray!

Perfect epilogue, Tim in contented contemplative mood at his desk, and then the visit of his dear friend, the story had to end with Ducky and Tim together. :clap:

This has been a truly remarkable series Teri, and you’ve rounded it off with a fabulous story! :bow-blue:

Thanks, Madeline! I'm glad you liked it. Figuring out what the right ending would be was hard, but I had to have Ducky there. :yes: There were a lot more twists and turns than I expected, but I'm pretty much satisfied with how it ends.
