Summary: To catch an unknown assassin, Bodie and Doyle head undercover on a cruise ship, posing as a couple. Aboard the ship are many people from Bodie's past, and any one of them could be their suspect. In the course of the investigation, Doyle discovers that there are a great many things he would never have guessed about Bodie's former life... and about his own feelings for his partner.

Notes: Thanks to my fellow Big Bang mods for running the challenge! Thanks to liriel1810 for the wonderful art (and especially for changing the captions with five hours notice)! Thanks to byslantedlight, londonronnie, and lysimache for various and sundry beta and Britpicking work; this story has been vastly improved by their help.

It's probably worth pointing out that this story was the very first Pros story I wrote, four years ago, and really one of the first slash stories I ever wrote at all. It has since been gathering dust on my hard drive because I didn't know what to do with it. I haven't edited it too much, honestly, but I figured you all would probably enjoy a chance to read it anyway. (So if there's anyone else who helped out, let me know; I may just have forgotten about it in the intervening years!)
