    Summary

    Her eyes and words are so icy
    Oh but she burns
    Like rum on the fire
    Hot and fast and angry as she can be
    I walk my days on a wire.
    It looks ugly, but it's clean,
    Oh momma, don't fuss over me.

    Cherry Wine by Hozier

    Spencer Reid and Aaron Hotchner broke up, because Aaron thought Spencer deserved someone better. It's been eight months, and Spencer certainly found someone else.

    But is she better? And can Hotch save Spencer if the answer is no?

    Summary

    Ten years. It's been ten years since Aaron Hotchner has seen his son in real life. Ten years that the boy has been living with a psychopath, kidnapped, beyond help. Ten years that Spencer Reid has kept Aaron sane, kept him from going off the deep end, kept him whole. Ten long years.

    And then early one morning, their doorbell rings, a familiar face just beyond the glass.

    Is this the end of Aaron's nightmare? Or just the beginning of Spencer's?

    Summary

    || title taken from "Knee Socks" by Arctic Monkeys ||

    They’d always been taught the creature in the mountains was good. He was destructive and menacing, but good.

    “He’s just lost.” That's what Derek’s mom had always told him. “Just lost, and all he needs is direction.”

    Summary

    nemesism (n.): frustration, anger, or aggression directed inward toward oneself and one's way of living

    ~~~

    Spencer Reid has never had it easy. He struggles with obsessive-compulsive disorder and autism on a daily basis, masking at work so his colleagues don't see him as weak. It seemed like an impenetrable plan; pretend at work, hide his true identity.

    But after years of bottling up emotions, he picked up several unhealthy coping mechanisms. Not long after he became clean from Dilaudid, he returned to his oldest-learned mechanism; self-harm. Spencer simply replaced one addiction with another.

    After several weeks of worrying behavior and an especially triggering case, Derek Morgan ends up driving Spencer back to his apartment. He asks to stay the night to make sure his friend would be okay, and Spencer regrettably agrees. And then his whole world is turned upside-down.

    Summary

    Geting shot in the knee was supposed to be the worst thing that happened to him that year. But Dr. Spencer Reid had never really been blessed with that kind of luck. All the other terrible things still hung there above his head even while he was stuck on desk duty. He embraced it. He was content to hang back with Garcia and sneak those cookies until he recovered.

    Then he started feeling tired. So tired. He was used to no sleep, sure. But this? This was something completely different. He tried to hide it. Until that day he woke up and spit blood in his sink.

    Despite what he comes to find out, he can't lay this on his already overwrought team. So he doesn't.

    Spencer keeps a secret he can't possibly bury forever. His team notices.

    Summary

    Hotch lived nearly ten months of his life in hiding. Trapped beneath necessary anonymity. Isolated. Forced to face himself for once... and face all the things he put off for far too long.

    Reid did everything just about right until that one particular time.... when he didn't do it right. When a genius makes mistakes, it tends to be catastrophic. Three months into prison awaiting his murder trial, Spencer Reid cannot argue with that logic.

     

    When the tides abruptly shift and life opens up, it's down to the two of them to find each other again...

    Maybe they'll find more than just each other.

    Summary

    "What are you holding within that head of yours spence.."
    That was all it took for Reid to begin sobbing, Hotch taking his coffee and placing it on the desk, before standing and pulling Reid into his arms, wrapping his arms around the shoulders of the younger man, Reid's face on his boss's stomach. Hotch was startled at the sudden emotional outburst, he didn't question it though, the team had seen how much this case drained Reid, they were surprised it took this long for him to show signs of it. Aaron wouldn't be surprised if this was simply from how exhausted the man was. The way he was holding him reminded him of holding a child victim. He felt protective over his team, he knew this, but this felt different. This made him remember how badly he wanted to have a child. He felt paternal.

    Summary

    “Have you heard about the agent Strauss is pushing into the team? Her recruit?”
    “Not just any recruit, Milani was her informant during the New World sectarian investigation - she was seventeen, she planted the bugs and got intel out of the leader himself that broke the case.” Rossi recalls his conversations with Strauss from years before.
    “Double major in Criminology and Psychology, graduated early summa cum laude, speaks three languages, IQ of 160 - she’s the Latina version of Reid.” Garcia notes as she reads the file then turns to Reid. “Have you met her before?”
    “Not personally, but I listened to one of her lectures on interrogation techniques at the Academy and it was fascinating.”
    “She impressed Doctor Reid? Should we be scared?” Emily jokes.
    ---
    Alejandra Milani spent ten years doing undercover ops and prison interrogations before being moved to the BAU by her former mentor, Erin Strauss.
