December was all about Gibbs/Ducky insofar as December heralded ncis_gibbsducky's 2009 Yuletide Promptathon. I had an aim that the beginning of it and that was to post something each day - and I achieved that. So rather than just link to stories, I'm going to link to the graphics I posted as well.
And for the astute amongst you who may notice the fiction and graphics only add up to 30, the other post was a 'fun' quiz/jigsaw puzzle post, hence the 31.
TITLE: Learning To Trust (The link goes off-LJ to my website)
SUMMARY: An AU story set in London, England. Ducky is a barman and he meets Jethro, who is from an extremely wealthy American family. Jethro is also a whiz kid with finances and has been sent by his father to see what life in a British finance house is like. The attraction between the two men is instantaneous and intense, however, things are not straightforward, and before there can be a future Ducky has to overcome his instinctual distrust of people.
AUTHOR'S NOTE: This story was originally written for periwinkle27's BOLO #02: Gibbs/Ducky zine. The story has now timed out. Also, unlike my other G/D stories, this one was written (with the agreement of Periwinkle) in British English to go with the setting.
