Gibbs and Ducky returned to the squad room after a rather extended lunch break Given it was rare he took a lunch break at all, Gibbs had absolutely no qualms over the extra time they had taken. And it was their anniversary.

He was still somewhat bemused to find himself not only remembering the date, but also celebrating it. It was another first among many in his relationship with Ducky. Normally they'd have gone out to dinner, but Gibbs was due to leave late in the afternoon for a conference.

"Hey, Ducky," DiNozzo called. "Do you know what this is?" He waved a piece of paper.

Out of the corner of his eye, Gibbs saw his lover's eyes light up at the prospect of being able to show off his amazing knowledge and no doubt 'educate' the kids (and probably him as well).

As Ducky turned to leave his side and go to DiNozzo's desk, Gibbs took the liberty of removing his hat and putting it on his desk.

Ducky turned back and flashed him a very intimate smile. "Why thank you, my dear," he said. "Now, Anthony, what is it you wish me to identify?" He crossed to DiNozzo's desk and took the piece of paper. "Oh, yes," he said, after a moment or two. "I do indeed know what this is."

Gibbs hid a smile as he tugged off his coat and threw it over the filing cabinet. "Er, Duck," he called a moment or two later. "Think they want you to actually tell them."

He was treated to another intimate smile and once again rued the fact he was not going to be spending the night with Ducky. Even the company of Fornell was not going to compensate for the lack of a warm, loving body in his arms.

"I do apologize," said Ducky, not sounding the least bit apologetic. "It is a palimpsest." He beamed at the group, who looked at one another.

"Right," DiNozzo finally said. "And remind me, a palimpsest is . . . ?"

"Well, in the strict sense of the word this is not a palimpsest because, as you may recall, Anthony," even from his desk Gibbs could see an increased twinkle in Ducky's eyes, "a true palimpsest is usually written on papyrus or parchment. Whereas this of course is on paper. Nonetheless, as it apart from that relatively minor point, conforms in other ways, I think we can call it thus."


"My dear?" Ducky said, now turning to smile at Ziva.

"What is a palimpsest?"

"Ah, I see. Oh, that is easy. It is a manuscript on which more than one text has been written and the first text has not been fully erased and is thus visible. You see, you can make out the original message beneath the new one. It's - Oh, dear."

Fully attuned to every nuance in Ducky's voice, Gibbs noticed the teasing had gone completely. "Duck?"

"Jethro, I think you had better come over here and read this. Now, Jethro."

SUB-GENRE: First Time
SUMMARY: Gibbs and Ducky get caught in the snow.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: Written for ashley_pitt - 'S' - Snow
DISCLAIMER: I don't own these characters, nor am I making any money from them. I merely borrow them from time to time.

"Damn it!" Gibbs cursed as the front wheels of the car went into a skid. Seconds later he corrected it and managed to avoid hitting the bank of snow.

"Jethro, I believe you should stop," Ducky said calmly. "It really is not safe for you to continue; you cannot see where you are going."

Ducky was right. But stopping wasn't something he wanted to do. "If I stop now, Duck, we'll be stuck here. Better we - Fuck!" This time even his driving skills couldn't prevent the car from hitting the bank of snow. The car screeched to a halt; the engine shuddered for a moment and then died. "You okay, Duck?" Gibbs was more concerned for his friend than the car.

"Yes, thank you. A little shaken, but otherwise, I'm fine."

"Guess I should have listened to you."

Ducky turned to face him. "You think," he said, a chuckle in his voice and a twinkle in his eyes.

Gibbs laughed. "Ah, Duck." He brushed Ducky's fringe back a little. "I'll see if I can get help." He pulled out his cell phone.

"Not from the children. One stuck car is quite enough. Although we should let them know what has happened." He pulled out his own phone. "I'll give Abigail a ring."

A few minutes later Gibbs clicked his phone off. "A few hours," he said.

Ducky shrugged. "I imagine this freak snowstorm has caught many people out. The children are all quite well, I am pleased to say."

"That's something. God, it's cold." Gibbs turned the key in the ignition, but although the engine spluttered, nothing happened. "Damn it." He rubbed his hands together, turned up his overcoat's collar and glanced at Ducky. "You okay?"

"A trifle chilly, but I've experienced worse."

Gibbs frowned. That might be true, but it would have been several decades ago. "Come here," he said.


"Come here and we'll share body heat." He slipped his arm around Ducky's shoulders. He was surprised when Ducky didn’t instantly move. "Duck? I did have a shower this morning, you know."

Ducky gave him a rather weak smile, and then allowed himself to be tugged into the embrace. After a moment or two he let his head come to rest on Gibbs's shoulder. It seemed quite natural to Gibbs to rest his cheek on Ducky's head as well as move a little nearer to Ducky.

He could smell the fresh scent of Ducky's hair and feel its heavy silkiness under his cheek. It felt so natural; just as the weight of Ducky's head on his shoulder and the warmth of his body against his did. Just as the sudden tingling in his groin did. He wasn't aware of gasping aloud, but he clearly did, as Ducky lifted his head and looked at him.

"My dear?"

It was several minutes later before Ducky said another coherent thing. "Oh, Jethro," he murmured.

And because he could, because he wanted to, because it felt so natural, Gibbs kissed him again.
