Character: Tony DiNozzo (Mentions of Anthony Sr. and others)
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011 Day 57. HAPPY BIRTHDAY swizzasnake! Beta'd by evila_elf. Comments and concrit welcome. Takes place post-Broken Arrow.
Summary: Tony thought he wanted more attention from his father.
Dad is doing his best to keep in touch.
Mostly postcards. Glossy, garish, “wish-you-were-here” from glamorous locations that make Tony think the old man is living in a Elvis movie without the music.
Sometimes he sends an email asking about the team, especially Ziva.
Tony shoots back perfunctory answers mentioning Tim’s Elfquest doings, or Abby’s latest antics, but never Ziva’s mysterious man in Miami.
Then there’s the pictures. Always a different girl, usually young enough to be his daughter, if not younger.
It’s like looking into a mirror that shows Tony his own future.
He doesn’t like it at all.
