As I said/hinted at in my NCIS - My Fannish Journey post I won't just be recc'ing G/D and A/Mc this month. I'm branching out a tad, so there will be three other pairings, ones who are extremely rare. So as they say: watch this space, well journal *g* The stories I recommend will all be favourite stories of mine, because for me a story worthy or recommending is a story that I personally thoroughly enjoy.
However, I do begin with a Gibbs/Ducky rec.
Pairing: Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Donald 'Ducky' Mallard. (Also Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Tobias Fornell (Past relationship). Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Anthony DiNozzo (Unrequited))

Why this must be read:
Adrianna started writing Gibbs/Ducky last year and this is her longest story to date. It was written for ncis_bigbang 2008 and should be read as it contains a bit of everything. A case, romance, gentle love making, great team banter, first class characterisation for all the characters. They are the men and women we see on the screen week in week out with their positive and sometimes less than positive traits.
Adrianna touches all the emotions in this story at different times It had me smiling, laughing, sniffing, having a wry grin, going 'awww', etc. The case aspect of it was superb and keeps the reader guessing. It's nice and hot in places, but it's not just about sex, it's about lovemaking - which so epitomises this pair and a surprise or two that normally would have me backing away or shaking my head, but Adrianna made them work perfectly.
It is a long story, but it's well worth settling in with your beverage of choice and letting the story wrap itself around you and take you into the world of NCIS.
One more day and the case was pretty much a wrap. This one would be a nightmare for health and safety guys. Yeah, it seemed the guy had neglected a safety precaution here and there, but his demise due to the accidental mixture had been quite horrific. The cost had been much greater than the crime. Not something you wanted happening more than once. Shame it had to have happened at all.
The helicopter couldn’t leave until the next morning though, so Gibbs was stuck onboard for the time being. He wished he could talk to Duck privately, but that just wasn’t possible on the ship’s line. He’d have to wait until he got home to see him, see if he was still waiting for him. He had the feeling things had somehow changed in his absence. He had no idea where he stood.
Cramped up in a corner of Tony’s room, file in hand, Gibbs pulled a knee up out of the way to let Tony pass him, but he sat beside him instead.
“Thought I wasn’t your boss anymore?”
“Yeah, well, old habits...” Tony looked down at his hands as he fidgeted. “Something’s up. Isn’t it?”
Gibbs just looked at him.
“Wanna talk about it.”
Gibbs snorted. “With you?”
“Why not?” Tony stood his ground. “Is it Fornell?” Tony was going to need to push him a little if he was going to get anywhere here, and nothing got you over the last guy like the next, right?
Gibbs watched him carefully for a second then shook his head. He had the sneaking suspicion Tony was going to try something again. Trouble was, it was probably his own fault. He was needy, so much so that even Tony had noticed. He was missing intimate company. Odd considering he’d been single enough over the years with no real issue. But now he’d had a few days being able to call Duck ‘his’ things had changed. Gibbs really hoped he wasn’t making an invitation with the vibes he was giving off. Glancing back at Tony again, he saw a look of expectation, possibly inevitability there. Gibbs bolted for the door.
