Summary: Gibbs is the Alpha Dragon for the east coast Wing… and the lead for the NCIS MCRT. He has two rules above all others; No other emerged dragons on his NCIS team, and no relationships with non-dragons.
Tony has no dragon blood, so hides his feelings for Gibbs behind smiles and misdirection. Things will change drastically for Tony when he mysteriously falls ill after an investigation on an aircraft carrier.

If the original story was the movie, then what’s to come is the TV show. Instead of a chaptered story, there will be “episodes” that vary in length. There will be a main storyline, as well as episodes that are separate from the main plot.
Episode 0: The Alpha of Atlantis
The Atlantis expedition came to Pegasus with no emerged dragons. Suddenly, dragons are emerging at an unprecedented rate. Cut off from Earth, a large Wing has formed in need of an Alpha.
Episode 1: Contact
Little Wyverns – Gift fic for my internet wife and GDP, Cinna Minion. Not truly part of the story canon.
AFIS – Automated Fingerprint Identification System
CI/CT – Counter Intelligence / Counterterrorism
CPS – Crown Prosecution Service
FLETC – Federal Law Enforcement Training Center
HVAC – Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning
LEO – Law Enforcement Officer
RIMA – Rhode Island Military Academy
SCIF – Sensitive Compartmented Information Facility
SFA – Senior Field Agent
SSDD – Super Secret Dragon Duties (flippant and made-up)
Note about Characters: Though there are a lot of fandoms and pairings, this is very much Tony-centric, meaning this story revolves around his journey. I am planning to write a few side stories that zero in more on some of the other pairings and emergences, but that isn’t this story. If you don’t like Tony-centric stuff, run away!
Note: Written for Naked NaNo 2013 on RoughTrade. Big Thanks to Keira Marcos for all her hard work on Naked NaNo. I wouldn’t have gotten this done without such a great environment to work in, and the support of a truly great community over there. Thanks, everyone!
Feedback and Concrit: Feedback is wonderful, but I no longer allow concrit on my story. My openness to receive it seems to mean people nitpicking errors. That’s not productive.
Timeline: Occurs in 2010 in season 7 of NCIS, and I’ve slid Stargate forward in time so late season 8 lines up with NCIS. Because Jack would have not let his Wyvern go into the field without him, once he was promoted to general early in season 8, Daniel would have been off field teams! Cameron Mitchell was brought in almost a full year early in my verse.
Coming soon. Feel free to submit questions about this ‘verse in the comments

Writing in Emergence
Writing in the Emergence ‘verse: People have requested to be able to write in the Emergence ‘verse. I have no problem with people using the concepts, ideas, and world building—the universe is “open” in that respect, just please credit. If you decide to write your spin on things and you’d like me to link to your story, drop me an email. However, I would never consider any other stories part of my official Emergence canon unless we agreed in advance. Whatever pairing you want is fine, but it won’t be canon for my verse.
Update: If you decide to write an Emergence spin-off, AU, or whatever you call it, please be sure to note, in addition to credit, that your story is not an official part of my universe. It will save me some headaches in regards to people contacting me.
Please consult my permissions page for more information. If you have questions about whether what you’d like to do would be permissible, please contact me.
May scaly little plot bunnies be with you.
