Firstly, I wrote my longest Gibbs/Ducky story to date, and also the story that I, thus far consider to be my best - The Common Factor. It isn't really long by my own, and many other people's standards, as it's only 13,316 words, but it's still the longest G/D story I have thus far written.
Secondly, I kept up my vow to take part in more ncis_flashfic challenges, as thus far I haven't missed a challenge. (Okay, so there have only been four, thus far, but even so . . .)
Thirdly, I wrote stories (yes, plural) that weren't NCIS; I wrote a Due South and a Man From U.N.C.L.E story.

He and Gibbs meet for the first time at an interagency party, where Tobias Fornell introduces them. The attraction is intense and immediate, and is more than just a physical one. However, for Gibbs, sex with a man is just that sex and one night stands, no commitment, no contact, no attachment. One night in Ducky's bed shakes the very foundations of this belief and he walks away. However, he cannot forget; but Ducky is leaving DC soon, very soon. An alternative reality R rated first time story.
