Crack_Van Rec 1: Unwind by Adrianna Coylho (NC-17)

I'm driving the NCIS crack_van van again this month and this time I've branching out a tad, so rather than the usual 10-12 Gibbs/Ducky stories with the odd Abby/McGee one thrown in, there will be more diversity. I'm going to cross-post the recs here and 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
Length: 1,986
Author on LJ: adriannacoylho
Author Website: None of which I am aware

Why this must be read:

Adrianna is a relatively new NCIS writer, but she already has displayed both quality and quantity - and I for one am hoping she's around for a long time to come.

Unwind is, what is fairly rare for a Gibbs/Ducky story, rated NC-17, but don't let the rating make you think it is purely about sex. It isn't. It is a very hot story, most of which takes place in a bath tub in Ducky's hotel room after Gibbs turns up to surprise him at a Medical Examiners' conference and in more ways than one takes away Ducky's aches and pains.

However, what is far more important than just hot sex is the tenderness, the deep love and affection that matters so much to both men. It's a very intimate story, and as with all of Adrianna's stories it is a love story between two men who might be older, but who most certainly aren't dead, and whose deep friendship, respect, love and affection for one another is clear in every word.

Adrianna takes the characters we see on the screen and portrays them extremely well; she keeps them in character, shows us their deep friendship, their banter they so often share, the touches of humour, the deep caring and simply adds lovemaking to the mix. We might never have seen them like this on the show, but this could so very easily be them. Nothing jars in the story, it simply flows perfectly and the whole story is so very easy to visualise ::coughs::
