Disclaimer: The Harry Potter characters all belong to JKR, and the NCIS characters all belong to Donald Bellisario and Chas. Floyd Johnson.
Category: Non-Buffy crossover. This is a Harry Potter/NCIS crossover.
Summary: Some of Harry's old schoolmates come looking for him after he's left the Wizarding World behind.
Time Frame: This scene takes place approximately ten years after "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix," in a significantly different HP universe, and sometime between the fourth and sixth seasons of NCIS.
Spoilers: None, because this universe differs significantly from JKR's, and probably in any number of minor ways from that of the standard NCIS universe up to this point.
Character Bashing: None.
Feedback: Of course!
Archiving: Talk to me first, please.
Author’s Note 1: This is unbeta'd..
Author’s Note 2: The timeframes for both shows have been juggled somewhat arbitrarily, in order to make them match up reasonably well.
Author’s Note 3: This is a scene my muse inspired and which I hope will eventually be fleshed out into a much larger story.
Washington Navy Yard
"I just want to go on record one more time, Nev, as saying that I think this is a very, *very* bad idea," Seamus Finnegan stated as he stood next to his currently unsmiling classmate in the small atrium off the building's main lobby. Entering the facility hadn't really been any sort of problem, considering that the credentials the Ministry of Magic's branch at the British consulate had provided them identified them as agents of MI6. The main difficulty they faced now was finding the subject of their search.
"I'm not all that wild about it, either, Seamus," Neville Longbottom agreed sourly as he scanned the various groups of federal employees passing through on their way home.
"Unfortunately, if we don't do this, based on what Croaker told Amelia he'd observed down in the Death Chamber, there's a very good chance that Central London will go up like one of the Weasley twins' old pranks less than thirty-seven hours from now, and that would prove to be very unfortunate for a great many people, not a small number of whom are muggles, who have no idea of what actually happened ten years ago and aren't to blame, in any case," he noted.
"Yeah, I know that Mum would really hate to see anything happen to Harrods," Seamus agreed with an irreverent grin. "Although, since my younger sister's got several of her finals scheduled this week, I'm not at all sure that she wouldn't mind seeing them get postponed because her uni got blown to pieces," he noted, tongue-in-cheek.
"Well, as long as she wasn't anywhere close by when it happened, that is," he added with another grin.
"There he is," Neville interrupted whatever else his friend might have been about to say, indicating a slim, dark-haired young man wearing rimless glasses, who was just now exiting the elevator.
Trying to appear nonchalant, the two wizards casually headed towards the man Neville had indicated, and managed to intercept him before he reached the exit doors.
"Hello, Harry," Neville nodded politely as he stepped in front of the dark-haired man he'd been so carefully watching, blocking his way to the exit, while also making sure the man he was preventing from leaving could clearly see that his hands were empty. "It's been a while since we've seen each other."
"Hey, Harry," Seamus added cheerfully. "It's good to see you again, mate."
"I'm sorry, but you've obviously mistaken me for someone else," the man whose path they'd blocked frowned at them. "My name is Jimmy – Jimmy Palmer, not Harry."
"Please, Harry," Neville shook his head in rejection of the other's words. "You know I wouldn't be here bothering you if this wasn't a matter of the most extreme urgency," he said quietly.
"It concerns some recent developments that have to do with what happened *that night* that you really need to know about," he added, trying to convey the importance of what he had to discuss through the tone of his voice. Judging by the frown that appeared in reaction to his words, Neville figured he'd been completely successful.
Before anyone could say anything more, a new voice cheerfully interrupted their conversation.
"Hey there, Jimmy," Neville heard someone calling over. "Everything okay here, man? You're looking a little too serious, considering it's Friday night and we've all got the weekend ahead of us."
The speaker was a medium tall, athletic-looking man who looked to be in his early thirties, and who was accompanied by an extremely attractive dark-haired and dark-eyed, Mediterranean-looking woman and a solidly-built man who was frowning as he gave both wizards a close examination, Neville noticed as he turned his head to look at the source of the interruption.
The man who'd spoken had a wide, bright smile on his face, but there was also something about his eyes that immediately made the wizard think of some of the more dangerous aurors he'd met over the past several years, while the woman radiated an almost elemental sense of danger as she frowned at the two wizards. The second man didn't speak, but something about him reminded Neville of a taller version of Filius Flitwick for some reason, and he immediately made a mental note not to underestimate any of the trio, despite the fact that he couldn't sense any sort of magic on any of them.
"Yeah, everything's fine, Tony," the bespectacled man shook his head as he let a smile easily slide onto his face as he turned to face his coworkers. "I just ran into a couple of guys I went to school with years back who I wasn't expecting to see again, and we were catching up with each other about some old friends we haven't seen for a while, that's all."
"Okay, man. Just checking, that's all," Tony nodded agreeably even as he continued to give the two visitors a quite thorough visual once-over. "You really can't be too careful any more, what with that thing with Chip, and that guy who was stalking Abby, and all," he noted.
"Yeah, you're right about that, Tony," Harry/Jimmy agreed with a nod. "But these two guys are okay – they're some old friends of mine who're in town on business. This is Neville Longbottom, and this is Seamus Finnegan," he introduced his companions to the newcomers.
"Guys, these are some of my coworkers – Ziva David, Tony DiNozzo and Tim McGee," he then introduced the three agents.
"Anyway, we were just going to go grab something to eat, so I guess I'll see you guys on Monday," he went on, smiling and nodding a goodbye as he took both of his two former schoolmates by the elbow and began guiding them outside and away from his coworkers.
