Kate's dead and Illya isn't pleased that both age and his 'secret identity' keep him from doing anything to avenge her. Call it a character study with a nod to my UNCLE days.
Rating: FRC (Tony's a tad too sick for sex)
Summary: Why did Tony open the envelope?
For Ozzie whose lovely music vid gave me the idea.
A/N: I loved SWAK as much as any h/c fan, but I didn't like that Tony was dumb enough to open the envelope in the first place. Still I let it go as the plot device it was and the question doesn't even come up in a longer fic I'm working on that is also post-Twilight.
Then there is the fact that I see Tony and Gibbs as being in an established relationship for long before the series started. I think they give off the "married" vibe and just ignore the mandatory het moments the show throws in for the other side (or see them as diversions to keep anyone from figuring things out.) :> At the same time, while I'm willing to regulate the Gibbs in his basement with the murderess scene to 'didn't happen,' it is somehow harder to regulate Tony opening the envelope to 'pretending to be het' category. So how does it fit into an established relationship?
Then I watched Ozzie's lovely vid and the answer to both problems popped into my mind. Of course, Tony still made a run for the Darwin Awards by opening the envelope, but at least he has a reason.
