Why this must be read:
There are comparatively few pure PWP R (or NC-17) rated Gibbs/Ducky stories, but this is one of them. Although to call it a PWP to some extent is mis-leading. Yes, the story is pretty much about a sexual situation from start to finish, but it's more than just sex, it's lovemaking between two men who know one another so well, and are intimate in ways outside of the bedroom. It also shows that when Ducky is determined, he can get his own way.
The premise is simple: Ducky rings Gibbs and insists he attend a physical examination. Which, with a more than a degree of annoyance and frustration, Gibbs does. It's unlike any physical examination he has ever experienced.
Ghostie takes this rather unusual sexual situation and crams in the love, affection, tenderness, closeness, naturalness that can only come from years of making love to and with the same person. And she does it extremely well. It's hot (very) but chock full of love, good characterisation, humour and fun too.
Oh, and, Ghostie, I'm still waiting for the sequel ;-)
"I don't have time for this, Ducky," Gibbs warned. Arms crossed, he drew himself to his full height, but the intimidation tactic failed miserably.
Dr. Donald Mallard stared back unflinchingly. He raised an eyebrow and said, "Of course you do." The older man pushed a skimpy blue gown at Gibbs. "Exam room one; put this on, and be sure to pull out the privacy curtain."
"Didn't I just have a physical a few months ago?"
"Telling the doctor how to do his job now, are you?" Ducky asked.
The slight edge in Mallard's voice stalled Gibbs's retort, and he managed to look suitably guilty. "I wouldn't--"
"Good, then move along." Ducky took hold of the agent's elbow and guided him toward the exam room.
