NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover
Fandom: NCIS/Stargate SG-1 Crossover
Author: Kikkimax (kikkimax)
Genre: PreSlash, Angst, Crossover, Case File, Hurt/Comfort, Friendship
Pairing/Characters: Daniel/Tony, Gibbs, Kate, Abby, Ducky, O'Neill
Warnings: Talk of Torture
Spoilers: NCIS: Takes Place at the end of Season 1.
Stargate SG-1: Takes place after Evolution, Part 2, Season Seven
Notes: Gibbs and his team are called in for an unusual murder case, and the only witness is the man the dead men had handcuffed to a chair at the time, surrounded by implements of torture. The only problem? An unfortunate case of amnesia: he can't remember a thing. The team take him into protective custody as a material witness, while they try to help "John" (Doe) jog his memory. The problem is, the only flashes of memory he *does* have include watching a large, deadly firefight which includes a pyramid shaped "Spaceship."
I'd never seen NCIS when I read this fic, and had absolutely no idea who they were. By the time the fic was over (and it's a fairly long fic), I really wanted to know more about those guys. That's when I started watching NCIS. Yes, you have Kikkimax to blame for my current obsession with NCIS. It's all her fault, okay? Both casts are well drawn, perfectly believable and enjoyable characters, even if you don't get to see near as much of SG-1 as you do NCIS. Well, except for Daniel. The plot is good and solid, the descriptions fascinating, and I can see why both the Stargate Fan Awards and the NCIS FanFic Awards voted this fic top Crossover.
Excerpt: (Remember: "John Doe" is the name their amnesiac witness is going by.)
Gibbs threw out a hand to stop Tony and gestured in the dark to the figure in front of them. John stood motionless in the middle of the clearing, gaping longingly at the sky. "Phone home," Gibbs deadpanned as he started walking again.
Kate slowly became aware no one was following her and reluctantly tromped back through the knee-high weeds. Clicking off her light, she positioned herself next to the witness. "Stardust," she said to him, following his upward stare.
"What?" John asked hoarsely, lowering his eyes to her for an instant before an invisible thread seemed to pull his gaze back to the stars.
"Stardust," Kate repeated with an embarrassed shrug, using her hand to indicate the broad trail of white that weaved its way through the night sky. "That’s what my grandmother always told us."
"That’s the Milky Way, Kate," Gibbs jeered lightly, passing them by.
"I realized that," Kate retorted defensively as Gibbs disappeared into the shadows. "It was a family thing," she called after him.
"Bill-yuns and bill-yuns of stars," Tony mocked, taking a position on the other side of John as he too stopped to take in the beautiful display. "Technically Granny wasn’t wrong," he contemplated. "Ultimately everything is made out of stardust, right? Even stars."
I rate this fic: Damn Good Fic
