Chapter One

Rating: FR15, for language and generally bad attitudes.

Disclaimer: The Harry Potter characters all belong to JKR, the NCIS characters all belong to Donald Bellisario and Chas. Floyd Johnson, and the Stargate people belong to Jonathan Glassner, Brad Wright and MGM, too, I think.

Category: Non-Buffy crossover. This is a Harry Potter/NCIS/Stargate SG-1 crossover, with possibly a couple other non-Scooby crossovers tossed in, too, depending on my muse's day to day whims.

Time Frame: This story 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. The events of the fifth book in this universe differed significantly from canon and the last two pieces of drek – uh, that is, *books* that JKR wrote never happened in this Potter-verse. The Stargate SG-1 'verse here will be a significantly AU version of that show, too.

Spoilers: None after HP book five, because this universe differs significantly from JKR's; probably quite a few from the standard NCIS universe up to this point; and bugger all from the canon Stargate SG-1 universe (including the movies).

Character Bashing: The majority of the British Wizarding World is undoubtedly going to look like a bunch of pathetic and brain-damaged buffoons, who should probably be put down with a bullet behind the ear, for their own sakes and that of humanity, in general, but since that's basically a canon portrayal of them, I wouldn't call that bashing. You may disagree, but if so, please provide reasons in your reviews!

Feedback: Of course! Like Tenhawk says, it's the coin of the realm!. And remember, it's all tax deductible, so don't be stingy.

Archiving: Talk to me first, please.

Author's Note 1: Many thanks to Bill Haden and Theo (Starway_Man) for beta-ing this story.

Author's Note 2: The timeframes for all of the shows crossed have been juggled somewhat arbitrarily, in order to make them match up reasonably well and satisfy my muse's whims.

Author's Note 3:. As usual, "word" indicates speech, [[ word ]] indicates mental communication, { word } indicates a character's thoughts, and // word \\ indicates foreign languages.

Author's Note 4: This story will be incorporating the Harry Potter/NCIS snippet I wrote for the Fic-A-Day challenge I wrote two years ago, since my muse has finally deigned to provide me with a (relatively) coherent plot line to follow.

"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 quietly, but steadfastly, as he stood next to his currently also unsmiling colleague in the small atrium off the building's main lobby.

Entering the facility hadn't been any sort of problem, considering that the credentials the Ministry's operatives at the muggle British consulate had provided them identified them as legitimate agents of MI6. The difficulty they faced now was finding the subject of their search, and hoping he wouldn't kill them immediately.

"I'm not feeling 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 something like that happening 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, well, I know that Mum would really hate to see anything happen to Harrods," Seamus agreed with a momentary, 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," Seamus 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, hasn't it?"

"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, speaking with an American accent that momentarily stunned both Englishmen. "My name is Jimmy – Jimmy Palmer, not Harry."

"Please, Harry," Neville said quietly, as he 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 life and death.

"It concerns some very recent developments – things that have happened in just the past few hours – that have to do with what happened *that night* that you really need to know about," Longbottom 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 successful in piquing his old friend's interest. He just wasn't completely certain about whether or not that was a good thing.

Before anyone could say anything more, a new voice cheerfully interrupted their conversation.

"Hey there, Jimmy," Neville heard someone say from not far away. "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. He was accompanied by an extremely attractive dark-haired and dark-eyed, Mediterranean-looking woman and a younger, solidly-built man who was frowning slightly as he gave both wizards a close examination, Neville noticed when 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 if anything, the woman was worse, radiating an almost elemental sense of danger as she frowned at the two wizards. The second man didn't say anything, but something about him reminded Neville of a taller version of Filius Flitwick for some reason; and so 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 from any of them.

"Yeah, everything's fine, Tony," the bespectacled man Neville had originally addressed 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 about some other 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 quick, but thorough, visual inspection. "You really can't be too careful anymore, you know – what with that thing with Chip, and that guy who was stalking Abby, and all," he noted.

"Yeah, you're right about that, Tony," 'Jimmy' agreed with a nod of his head. "But these two guys are okay – they're a couple of old school friends who're in town on business, and they decided to stop by and say 'hi.'

"This is Neville Longbottom, and this is Seamus Finnegan," 'Jimmy' introduced his companions to the newcomers, indicating the two wizards with a casual wave of his hand.

"Guys, these are some of my coworkers – Ziva David, Tony DiNozzo and Tim McGee," he then, in turn, introduced the three agents to Neville and Seamus.

"Anyway, the three of us were just going to go grab something to eat, so I guess I'll see you guys on Monday," 'Jimmy' went on, smiling and nodding a goodbye as he curled an arm around the shoulders of his two former schoolmates and began guiding them outside and away from his coworkers.

Once the trio were in the parking lot and safely out of earshot of any bystanders, 'Jimmy' turned to face the two wizards – his face now an almost completely expressionless mask as he demanded, "What the hell's going on here? I'm pretty sure I made it *damned* clear when I left England that I didn't want *anything* to do with your world, ever again!

"I didn't think even *Fudge* would be stupid enough to piss me off like this, by sending you two idiots to try to talk me into coming back," the man formerly known as Harry James Potter stated flatly, as he scowled at his former classmates.

Quelling the small shiver of anxiety that had run down his spine upon seeing that particular expression on his old friend's face, Neville held up his hands in a calming gesture and pulled out his most reassuring smile as he said, "As I was starting to say a minute ago, Har – I mean, Jimmy – some very significant events took place in the Department of Mysteries just a few hours ago, which are connected to our trip into the Ministry back during Fifth Year. That's why Seamus and I are here.

"Seriously – we know, without any doubts whatsoever, that you're going to want to hear about them…"
