Christmas: Teddy (Window)

Crack_Van Rec 10: Something To Talk About - Artyartie (PG)

Fandom: NCIS
Pairing: Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Donald 'Ducky' Mallard
Length: 2,813
Author on LJ: artyartie
Author Website: None of which I am aware
Why this must be read:

Artie is another writer for whom this is her first (and thus far only *eyes Artie) Gibbs/Ducky story. It was written for the 2008 Gibbs/Ducky Yuletide Exchange and filled the 'wants' of another writer, which was: having the 'kids' be more perceptive about Gibbs and Ducky's relationship but pretend to be oblivious as not to 'waste' the two lovers efforts to keep things quiet.

However, Artie added a twist to that aspect - the kids are all keeping secrets from one another two.

It's set pre-season three, so we get to see Kate in this story, which is always nice. It's full of varying emotions and team spirit and caring for one another and for Gibbs and Ducky. It made me smile, laugh and sniffle - but in a a good way. The characterisation is good, the voices clear and we get to see Gibbs in full 'mother hen mode', something we get more than one hint of in the series - as far as Ducky is concerned.

It's an excellent read.
