General O’Neill and the Navy Cop by Kathana Grey

Art by FanArts Series

“General O’Neill? This is Colonel Denton Roberts from McMurdo base, Antarctica. There is a small problem you should know about.” The dour voice on the other end of the line announced. Jack glared first at his receiver and then at the mountains of paperwork on his desk. His first, not very professional reaction was to ask why he should be bothered with a ‘small’ problem that would, without a doubt, add to his paperwork, but he bit back on the words and instead grunted a ‘report’. Roberts wasn’t part of the SGC, he just knew enough to mainly ignore the men stationed there not under his command and the unusual comings and goings as long as the paperwork was in order.

“Our new NCIS agent on base got involved in a situation between one of our Marine guards and one of the scientists from your research base.”

“Whom did he piss of to get that assignment?” Jack groaned and silently cursed at whoever decided that fucking McMurdo needed a NCIS on base agent for the handful of marines that were officially posted there.

There was silence at the other end of the line but then Roberts decided to stiffly answer Jack’s mostly rhetorical question. “Director Vance of NCIS, according to the transfer papers. But back to the problem. Apparently Sgt. Veigh asked the agent to help him. One of your scientists tried to blackmail my man. According to the agent, one Anthony DiNozzo, Veigh feared that his word wouldn’t have as much weight as that of a doctor and they decided to set the blackmailer up before coming to me.”

Jack rubbed his brow and leant back in his chair. “And why are you phoning me instead of NCIS?”

“I am sorry, sir, but I was instructed to contact you with anything … peculiar.” Roberts sounded as if he had swallowed something nasty. “DiNozzo taped the final meeting between my Sergeant and Doctor Sybil Hummer and then tried to arrest the blackmailer. Your doctor wanted Veigh to smuggle a device back stateside or she would accuse my man of trying to rape her.”

That made some kind of twisted sense. Someone not involved in the program would have a far better chance at smuggling something out than the men and women working at the Antarctic outpost. “Go on.”

“When confronted Hummer resisted arrest and tried to destroy the small spherical device by throwing it against a wall. DiNozzo caught it. It began to … glow.”

Yeah, that was peculiar enough, all right. Jack opened his mouth but before he could say something the Colonel spoke up again.

“And now we have a nearly catatonic NCIS agent on our hands who clings to the device so hard we would have to break his fingers to separate him from it. One of your other scientists, a Dr. Bergman, said it would be a bad idea to sedate him and to contact you immediately.”

Jack could hear muffled talking in the background. He couldn’t understand much but he identified one of the speakers. “Give the phone to Bergman and leave her alone in the room” It was a secure line, there shouldn’t be any problems.

More rustling and then a slightly accented voice greeted him. “Sir?”

“Bergman.”

“Uhm. Sir, I think it would be best if we could transport Agent DiNozzo back to the mountain to help him. I think it would need your, ah, attention to sort it out correctly.”

Translation, they needed his ATA gene. O’Neill carefully voiced his question. “Do you know what it does, how dangerous it is and how fast we should act?” Experience had taught him to heed Murphy’s law. Whatever could go wrong was very, very likely to really go wrong in the most spectacular way possible whenever the SGC was involved. He didn’t want the agent to develop into a tentacle monster, blow up or whatever else in transit.

“It was labeled as a gene activator.” Bergman answered.

“It activated his ATA gene?” That wouldn’t be too bad. They could always use new ATA gene carriers, even if O’Neill didn’t know what he should do with a Navy cop.

The scientist coughed. “No, he had that already in abundance, it seems. You need a strong gene to activate the device. Something else. He is developing rashes all over his body and seems sensitive to light and sound, so….”

Jack O’Neill groaned. How would he explain THIS to the Sentinel council? “Don’t let anyone else touch the damn thing and ship him to me ASAP.”

  1. Yeah, Dinozzo is going to be in our place, it’s very nice, can’t help but hope to see him in the program even if Gibbs is going to be pissed off. so beautiful DiNozzo.

    I love this fic, it’s a wonderfu gift, we’re lucky to have you and Keira in our world.

  2. Beautiful. I can’t wait to see who his Guide will be.

    • I should point out that this isn’t a part of my Sentinels of Atlantis series but a gift fic to celebrate my one million words thingy. 😉

      • But but but it’s Tony! He would be an awesome Sentinel! He has the protect the tribe down pat. And Gibbs has never let anyone mess with his Tony but him and and… No Tony? whimper. sniffle. waaaah!

        • LOL. I’ll be honest– Gibbs is ALWAYS the Sentinel in my mind when I think about that pairing. I can’t see Tony in that role but it’s fun to read in this story.

          • Honest truth? It makes sense for Gibbs to be the Sentinel but the very first NCIS/Sentinel crossover I ever read was “Awakening” by Tenthmuse1 and it had Tony as the sentinel so that is how I always see them. And since I’m an idiot who didn’t say it before, Thank You Kathana Grey for a really wonderful piece. I hope you continue the story I would really love to read more.

          • Ohhh, there’s a crossover with Tony as a Sentinel??? Where… Tell me… Please… I have virtual cookies…

          • http://www.thetenthmuse1.madbrilliant.com/ncis/ncis_ts/ncis_ts_main.html
            that’s the link for Tenthmuse1. Lots of great fic there.

          • I have to agree, I always see tony as the Guide. Would love them to join, but I don’t think they would fit too well into our world unless they stay in DC and you switch to them. Thanks for the little present.

  3. Hi,
    Whether or not the fic is part of the Sentinels of Atlantis, it is still fun to think of Gibbs and O’Neill facing off…
    Kathana Grey hits the bullseye on characterization in Keira’s World.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Lori

  4. This was soooooooo nice! Kathana Grey, I really hope you intend co continue the story!

  5. I couldn’t stop laughing, the moment I read the line “How would he explain THIS to the Sentinel council?” I got this mental image of the look on Jack’s face and it was just so funny. I loved it. Really fun idea.

  6. this is really cool,inyeresting idea and would love to read more

  7. God I hate it when good writers only write a short peace. It’s a total tease. Good work.

  8. Wow, Gibbs, O’Neill and Ellison standing over DiNozzo as Blair tries to stop them all going into testosterone meltdown? That’d be so cool! lol

    Thanks for this – I’d *love* to read more! 😀

  9. *Makes greedy grabbing motions*
    Excellent Kathana, can we have more?
    And I don’t care who is the sentinel and who is the guide, as long it’s Gibbs/Dinozzo… when dealign with NCIS at least. 😀

  10. Okay I know someone’s going to toss something at me but Yeah Gibbs is SO a Sentinal. I think If Tony had an NCIS guide it would be Abby.
    But could you just see Rodney and Daniel all being loving and supportive of the new Sentinal along with Blair.

  11. I like this. And I can see Gibbs being territorial about Tony if he was part of his Pride. And given Tony’s luck, his Guide in this ‘verse is Tim. Or maybe Ziva.

    ~L

  12. Thank you for the compliments, they make me blush. Keira once answered to one of my comments that she could see Tony DiNozzo and Gibbs in her Sentinel Universe and this was a plot bunny that assaulted me due to her words ^^

    This drabble is a present for her to show how grateful I am that she shares her fantasies with us and I wanted to show her what her work has spawned in my head. I don’t plan to write more. You know, I can always dream about my fav chars entering her verses, but if she decides to draw them in herself it would be better than anything I can come up with.

    • I love this – I could just see Jack’s face! Keira’s stories are fantastic and I’m very glad they spawned this bunny in your head. *blush* *has confession* Your bunny spawned a bunny (hey, bunnies spawn like, well, rabbits…) – I hope it’s okay if I send it to you by PM on LJ.

      Thanks, anyway – this made me grin.

  13. Oooh, very nicely done!

  14. I have always loved NCIS Sentinle stories. Love Tony as one, even though I see Gibbs as more of the authority figure, although in the show Tony does have really good eyesight or is it hearing? That escapes me now….

    I too am imagining the looks on Jack’s face when he has to explain this to the Sentinel Council but personally I think he should be more afraid of Gibbs and don’t forget Abby, that ball of Gothic fluff can be downright scary.

  15. Great job! I loved it so much that when it came to an end I think I almost whimpered. Thanks so much for giving this gift to Keira. She’s very lucky…as are we to get to share this gift. Please keep writing!

  16. This is a wonderful gift – to all of us too. I love the idea of Tony being in the wrong/right place at the right time. Sentential Tony, I wonder who you pick for his guide.

  17. This is a great opening to the story Kathana. I hope you plan to continue.

  18. Love it! Poor O’Neill, his job isn’t the easiest at the best of times… Explaining to Gibbs that he “broke” his agent… Very BAD Day for O’Neill 😉

  19. Great beginnings-I could just see Vance sending Tony off to McMurdo.
    I love crossover with either Tony or Gibbs as the Sentinel or Guide for the other.

    I did however participate in a round robin on a list where I had Gibbs wind up being a the Alpha Sentinnal with Rafe from the Sentinel as his Guide and Tony as Gibb’s Beta. A lot of fun

  20. Tease!

    I love Tony and him on Sentinels of Atlantis is sweet, specially considering chapter 15 where Jack admits to collecting more Guide/Sentinels because John took most of them and he got bored. Besides Jack knows how to spin it, remember SGC is top secret, he doesn’t have to say how Tony became online just that he did. Jack would totally seduce Tony into his nest and when Gibbs starts sniffing around (because he will) Jack would then debrief the whole team and call them when needed, after all, McMurdo is small SGC is not and is full of all military branches, Jack would dump most investigation cases on them without any remorse…

    Oh my God! I totally run away with this.

    Guess it was pretty good ^_^ Y

    • There are so many reasons why NCIS and Stargate mesh so well. I mean a) Atlantis is in essence a Marine base. Sheppard originally came as a sort of light switch, not really in the chain of command. They so need a Team Afloat ^^ b) how often do they stumble across bombed villages or sights where they could use a forensic team to analyse what/who/when/why and still be able to shoot anything nasty that crops up? A lot! Bot at the mountain and Atlantis. Add the advantages of a Sentinel/Guide team and you get a lot of possibilities.
      Ah, but I shouldn’t ramble….

  21. Yummy. Thank you for thanking Keira and sharing.

    I can so see Tony as a Sentinel and Gibbs as a guide. I think a lot of people see Gibbs as the Sentinel because he is the ex-military, gruff, in-charge guy and in a lot of ways mirrors Ellison. But I think that while that rut could be okay to be stuck in it wouldn’t be as much fun as considering all the alternatives.

    Tony is a protector, and in this reality he needs someone to force him to take care of himself – eat right, pay attention to his environment (detergents, solvents, etc) etc. Gibbs would definitely be able to reign him in, and would not be adverse to a ‘do as I say and not as I do’ style of guiding.

    More would be delightful.

  22. This is so much fun, I can see poor Tony, one more way of getting himself in trouble. And I certainly wouldn’t want to be in Jack’s place when he tells Gibbs. It is an intriguing idea casting Gibbs as Guide to Tony’s Sentinel. Congratulations on 1 million words, I hope that you went out and had a ball since it is quite the accomplishment. Now looking forward to the million and a half mark, then the 2 million mark and of course the 3 million mark……….didn’t realize that I liked to plan so far ahead. Thank you both for all your hard work and thanks for sharing with us. Barb

  23. Great piece of work and I 2nd, 3rd, 4th the recommendation that Kathana continue with this thread. She writes really well, and this is such a rich AU that Kiera has created.

    But whatever happens, this made a lovely read on this Sunday morning.

    Billie

  24. Heh. Yeah, that totally works. Well written.

    OK I am adding my voice to the tons of others who hope there is going to be more to this…as well as more for Always Faithful (hint hint)…I GOTTA see the confrontation between O’Neill and Gibbs. I love the generosity of this fandom which allows for so many crossover stories into other author AU.

  26. i missed this somehow?
    i really liked it. and i second third fourth…infinity the desire that there was more to come in this story.

  27. I really like this story and the part the comes after!! I love NCIS!!
    And this Sentinel show sounds really cool but does anyone know where I can find it to watch it online? No downloading, signing up or in stalling anything.

  28. This is fantastic, but is it a one shot?

  29. Oh this is Brill! I hope it was continued elsewhere, but if not, what an absolutely fantastic tease! 🙂
