Why this must be read:

A lot of people will know Periwinkle firstly and foremostly as a top-rate beta reader, but she is also a writer - and a very good one at that. Normally Periwinkle writes slash (Gibbs/Ducky) in NCIS, but this time she has written an excellent story that is mainly gen with a bit of het towards the end.

Ducky and Abby are two of my favourite characters, and are part of my two OTPs, so it was a mixture that I hoped would produce a jolly good story. Periwinkle did not disappoint. Abby and Ducky are both working late one evening and neither are willing to go home, just in case Gibbs needs either of them. Ducky persuades Abby to go out for a late supper with him and the scene is a lovely one, fully of deep friendship and affection and contains gentle humour and excellent banter between two people who not only like one another but respect one another too.

They then return to the office for a cup of tea, but things do not quite go as expected and discoveries are made.

It's well written, has excellent characterisation, shows deep friendship, is based fully on canon and is clear to hear and see. And Periwinkle definitely knows when 'less is more'. I know for a fact that Periwinkle struggled with the prompt she was given and at times was less than happy with the story. But for me it is one of her top stories - it really is well worth reading.
