Another use for my one of my spread-sheets. The one I used for this is 'Yearly Word Count - 2007'.
Take the first sentence (or two/three) from the first story posted of each month of 2007. That's your fic year in review.
"Hey, Duck, is something up?" Gibbs looked up as his old friend and lover came into the squad room and crossed over to his desk.
February (Can be read as any male/male pairing)
It had been his favourite season. Maybe it was fitting that that was when he’d died.
He was alone.
His girls were gone.
This is it.
I can't put it off any longer.
"Duck, what are we going to do about Jenn?" Jethro was slumped next to Ducky on the sofa. It was almost midnight and the day been a long, tiring and stressful one; thus both men were enjoying some quiet time to themselves, in the sanctity of Ducky's home.
VIRGINIA, USA. 1975
"Here, let me help you."
"Oh, thank you very much. I do appreciate it. I was foolishly trying to carry far too much."
"Get your hands off him," Jethro growled, swooping down on a man who had his hands on Ducky's arm. "Unless you want to lose them, that is."
For more than two hours Jethro and Ducky had been making love in Jethro's bed, with the front door firmly locked. Now as he held Ducky in his arms and continued to lightly stroke the pale, soft skin, Jethro felt fully at peace, content, sated and far happier than he thought he had the right to be.
You never know, do you? How much you’ve got, I mean. Not ‘til it’s gone. Then it’s too late.
22ND OCTOBER 2007
“Good morning, Jimmy,” Ducky called as entered Autopsy. He put his briefcase down on the floor and rubbed his glove-clad hands together. “My, my, today really is a fine example of the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, is it not?” He smiled at Jimmy.
In the early years of his post-University life, Ducky traveled to many towns, cities and countries. And despite being a friendly man, he always traveled alone.
December (Gibbs/Everyone - 21 pairings + 1 all implied)
"Do come in and sit down, Mr. Gibbs."
"Thanks." Gibbs looked around him at the clean, albeit cluttered room. No one would believe what went on there.
