"I'll Dress You In Mourning" NCIS drabble Ducky Mallard Rating-G

Title: I'll Dress You In Mourning
Fandom: NCIS
Character: Ducky Mallard
Rating: G (GEN)
Wordcount: 100
Warnings/Spoilers: Refers to a canon character death in Season 7.
Notes: Drabble-a-Day 2011. Day 234. Prompt from ncisdrabble100. Challenge #252-Cliche. "In the dog house." Unbeta'd. Comments and concrit welcome.
Summary: Grief and laughter go hand in hand.



There’s nothing less funny than mourning and yet Ducky is continually struck by the oddity of what can still make him weep even if it makes no sense. He’d done the grieving years ago since Mother was effectively gone years before her body gave up the ghost.

A hint of lavender in the air on a spring morning, reminding him of the scent that permeated his childhood. Or Abby sporting the antique scarab broach he gave her. She wears it well, but somehow it still hurts.

And in all the world, nothing makes him sadder than the sight of corgis.
