Tropes for the fic:
- Alternate Universe Fic: Kate is still alive and Morrow is still Director of NCIS.
- Call-Back: Kate's reaction to a marine's death reminds of her of her ex-boyfriend, Tim, who died in the series pilot episode, convulsing from being poisoned, similar how to the victim died.
- Friend to All Children: Gibbs and Kate do with the baby, Paulie, daughter of one of the victims. Tony, on the other hand, not so much.
- The Gulf War: The victim was a gulf war veteran and he was part of a group that was being treated for Gulf War Syndrome.
- How We Got Here: The fic starts in the middle of the story and then goes back six months to the case the team was just handed.
