Story Notes:Hello!

This is the first story in our epic Firestorms Universe. We started imagining today's Mac Taylor with someone from his past, someone he couldn't even drive away or get out of his system. The natural choice for us was Jethro Gibbs from NCIS.

Since this universe is only based on the characters we know and love, don't expect them to be the same guys you see on your screen every week. Their experiences shaped them to be similar in some capacities and very different in others.

Eventually, other characters from NCIS, CSI: New York, and a couple from CSI: Miami will be introduced but for now, in the early days, this will be the telling of Mac and Jethro's relationship.

We've taken a couple of liberties with our AU at the outset. Mac and Jethro never served together as far as we know, and while they may be the same age, the shows have never told us that. For the purposes of our universe, they were both born in 1963. Mac grew up in Chicago, Jethro grew up in West Virginia, and they just met when they started serving together. Mac is a Lieutenant while Jethro is a Lance Corporal at this juncture. Military mistakes are wholly our own, as neither of us have ever served.

If this pairing doesn't suit you, please keep checking back, as many of your favorite characters (including Jethro's four cannon wives, Mac's wife and the various teams) will play an integral part in the universe.

Ange and Bree We do not own any characters from NCIS or CSI:NY. If you recognize a character, we didn't create them. If you don't recognize a character and you like them, we made them up. If you don't recognize a character and hate them, we have no idea where they came from. Please don't sue us!
