Crack_Van Rec 1: Waiting For Ducky by Periwinkle (PG)

As you may have seen on my To Do list, I'm reccing NCIS on crack_van this month (no I still haven't put all the posts together, I've done a quarter of them and at least know which stories I'm reccing for all but two authors, so that's a start). And I'm going to the recs here as well as on crack_van.

The stories I recommend will all be favourite stories of mine, because for me a story worthy or recommending is a story that I personally thoroughly enjoy.

Fandom: NCIS
Pairing: Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Donald 'Ducky' Mallard
Author on LJ: periwinkle27
Author Website: Periwinkle's Fanfiction

Why this must be read:

So many writers and readers, not only in NCIS fandom but in others know periwinkle27 as a beta reader, a first class beta reader. They forget, indeed some may not even realise, what she is also a fine writer.

Waiting For Ducky is one of many stories spawned by the end of Season 3 double episode 'Hiatus', and in my opinion is one of the best. The premise is incredibly simple: Gibbs cannot decide whether to return home, so he turns to the one person who can help him, is old friend and lover - Ducky.

It is sweet, but not saccharine and in a lovely example of the intense closeness the these two men share. It's touching and moving, but as it's written by Periwinkle, it also has a smidgeon of humour in it, as we have a wonderful scene with Gibbs pacing around a hotel room waiting for Ducky to appear and worrying. Only Periwinkle can achieve worry and humour in the same scene in such an excellent way. And once Ducky has arrived the ensuing scene just keeps getting better and better with tenderness and love, and it's all very in character and easy to see unfold.
