Recs: Three One-shots

For the first recommendations post, I am listing three one-shots that I like. The first one is recently posted. The other two are older, but they are stories that come back to my mind from time to time. The links are all from

A Chest of Drawers (A Chest of Drawers) by TerryJ
This is a story set in season 12, focused on Jimmy Palmer and his new fatherhood.

Those First Days (Those First Days) by K9Lasko
This tells the story of a yearly ritual for Gibbs. It's a character piece.

Forgiven (Forgiven) by Alidiabin
This expands on a piece of the Jackson Gibbs backstory from the season 7 episode Faith.

Recommendation Posts

I've been thinking for a while about using this community as a place for recommendations of gen stories in addition to its being a place where such stories can be posted. So I am adding to the tags a 'recs' tag for such posts.

The subject line for recommendation posts should begin with the word Recs and contain a short descriptor of the story or stories being rec'd. For example, this descriptor could be the character involved or the type of story.

For tagging, the 'recs' tag should be used. Genre and character tags may also be used, but author tags should not.

The body of the posts should have links to the stories. The title and author should both be listed. A short description should also be given. If the author has posted a summary, you may quote that if you wish.

Self-recs should not be done as the author can make a Fic post and post or link a story that way.

Let me know of any questions or suggestions you have.

Call For Prompts

I want to try something new for the community here, a prompt-a-thon. How this works is that people can submit prompts for NCIS gen stories that they would like to see written. These prompts can be either specific or broad. In keeping with the GEN nature of the community, the prompts cannot require that a romantic or sexual relationship be depicted in the story. The hope is that the prompts will inspire authors to write stories and post them to the community.

Comments or suggestions about this proposed endeavor are also welcome here.

I will start things off with some ideas I have for stories I would like to see.

Edit: (1 June 2016) There was no one else who suggested prompts so there is no need to make another post with a listing of them. I will leave this post up in case anyone wants to use it to find inspiration for ideas.

Comments and more prompts are still welcome.
