On Their Own Challenge by Enthusiastic Fish

On Their Own Challenge
Stories for this challenge should feature one of the main characters in a situation where they are by themselves and maybe must rely on themselves. It can be a case file where they’re undercover and cut off from the team, or they’re spending time alone for a break/vacation, or maybe they’re lost somewhere. Now, I DO NOT want this to be a “the character leaves the team for good” type of fic. I need the featured character to want to return to the team or have returned to the team by the end of story. I also want, if the character is in a spot of trouble, to get out of it using their own skills and abilities without someone else sweeping in to rescue them.
Why they are alone, or how they wound up isolated is important, as is how the situation is resolved. So tell me a story of one of the team being ‘on their own’.
Characters: Main characters (those who appear or have appeared in the credits) only, please.
Rating cap: FR-18, but rated for violence and language only, please, and only write stories with a rating that you are old enough to write.
Genre: No sex/slash/romance
Crossovers: Not this time, and I want this to be centered on the original NCIS, so no LA or NO characters.
Prequels/Sequels: as long as the story can stand alone without too much background, it should be fine. Please ask.
Length: Minimum 500 words, No maximum.
Maximum number of entries per writer: three (because that’s all the Karma you can get). You can enter the story in other challenges if the other challenge issuer agrees. You can enter stories from other challenges in this one as long as they meet the rest of the criteria.
There will be two winners: Stories rated FR7-FR13 and stories rated FR15-FR18
The due date for the challenge is October 31, 2014.
Characters: Any NCIS Character(s)
