Last updated: 14th November 2013

New additions to the site can be found on my Recent Updates page.

 

The stories on this part of the site feature the relationship between Leroy Jethro Gibbs/Donald Ducky Mallard.

 

As NCIS is a current show some fanfic within this site will inevitably contradict canon that came after the story was written. That is one of the main problems of writing in a current show fandom.

I don't rate my stories individually, as I believe that ratings are too subjective. 
However, I would say that the stories on this part of the site range from G to R rated.

The stories on this part of the site are divided into:

Stand Alone Stories
Stories set in my 'Occasions Universe'
Series
Stories with sequels/companion stories
Crossovers

Zine Stories

Should you wish to email me about any of my stories, please feel free to do so at: nikki@arcady.plus.com
I always reply to LoCs.

NOTICING SERIES

This series actually has more stories than just those listed below, as once I'd posted It Was In His Voice to the Live Journal Gibbs/Ducky Community, a members asked if she could write a companion story/sequel to it. Naturally, I said 'yes, of course', and found that her story sparked another idea, so I wrote the next part. And then another couple of members asked if they could write a part, and so what was planned to be a stand alone story turned into a ten part mini-series. When I wrote the final story, Something In The Air, I attempted to pull together threads from all of the other nine parts. The other stories in the series are: Discovery, Body Language, On A 'Need To Know' Basis, Witness and Davka. And the story can be read in its entirety here.
