*Issued by Enthusiastic Fish*The Autumn Challenge!
Here we go: In my neck of the woods, autumn is already getting started, and I love it. We've had frosty nights. Leaves are starting to change. There's that little nip in the air, even when the sun is shining and it's warm. You can feel the change of season. You start seeing birds flying south for the winter. For me, in Idaho, that means Spud Harvest. Other places have their own fall traditions and fall harvests.
That's the challenge: Write a story in which the season of autumn plays a role (not literally, just that it's important to the story). It could be that a body is found in a pile of leaves. It could be that freak winter storm that shows up in the middle of October. (Yes, we've had that. It dropped almost a foot of snow in one night...and melted in a week.) It could be that they can't hide as well because the leaves have fallen off the trees. It could just be someone enjoying the weather. This can also include the autumnal holidays, e.g. Halloween and Thanksgiving.
Characters: Any NCIS characters, except for Franks, MAllison and EJ. Regular or recurring or guest, I'm okay with that.
Genre: Any gen. I'm not in the mood for romance this time. So no romance.
Stories as part of a series are fine, but they need to be able to stand on their own. AUs and OCs welcome.
