Rating: PG-13/FRT
Warnings: There be slightly porny waters ahead; nothing very explicit, mostly just schmoopy.
Genres: Slash, Romance, Post-Ep
Spoilers: Up to and including 7x01, "It Takes A Village."
Characters/Pairings: David Rossi/Aaron Hotchner

Notes: a) *waves at CM fandom* Hi! Haven't been around in a while but the season premier inspired me. Unbeta-ed, so all mistakes are mine.
b) Title from the Frank Sinatra song.
b) Inspired by and written for my bb!girls [personal profile] kelachrome and [personal profile] lilalanor , from our communal live-watching silliness. They wanted "Dave feeding Aaron a nice Italian dinner"; I added the sexin'. :)

Summary:  Set sometime after/during the events of "It Takes A Village." Tomorrow, the work-a-day world starts again, but tonight Dave is going to see that Hotch gets fed properly and put to bed.

just imagine someone/waiting at the cottage door/ when two hearts become one/ who could ask for anything more? )

Notes: a) Set in The Kidverse, created by writers much more talented than my poor self.
b) Grown out of of some shared head-canon and gleeful  fannish discussions, particularly the summary line. Because [personal profile] lilalanor and I love Dave and Keith, those grumpy badgers.
c) Title from an Edwin P. Whipple quote , for reasons that will become clear.

Summary:  "They’re better friends than they ever were lovers." Dave looks back over his relationship with Keith.

It was the books they fought over at the end. )

The rest of the end quote:

" [love] completes many things,

and warrants them to take effect,

where he who does not love would faint and lie down."

Yeah, that's pretty much it.  Oh, you wanted rational thought? I'm so sorry, tonight's Hotch ep has decircuited my brain. :)

there's nothing you can do that can't be done )

Fic in-joke: Okay, apparently I completely missed where they were going with this when I wrote "The Bakery Bandit". Or, hopefully, we'll get that bit of it later. But: OH BABY GIRL.

The thing is, I've always been more partial to the Rossi episodes than I might let on. And this is no exception.

So, it's 10:05 EST, and I've been bawling for the past 10 minutes over a television show. And despite what people who shall remain my mother might say, I don't do this all that often. But like most people in this episode, I must defer to the power of forces greater than myself. Like the CM writing staff and cast.

The only thing you can trust is the ground beneath you. Until one day, it shifts. )

I was so pissed in July when the news came. So pissed. But there's still so much I love about the show, and they've sucked me in for the time being.

Finally saw THE APARTMENT on Monday, when I went to pick up the keys from the Housing Office and get my student ID. And I have to say, it's really kind of fantastic. The dining room and the living room are one, but they are furnished (!) I will need to go purchase some Sofa Parasites (tm Steven Moffatt) though. Then there is the unholy abomination that I have termed the Hallchen, because Kitchway doesn't have the cadence. Basically it is a corridor with the bedrooms on one side, refrigerator/cabinets/electric range (!!) on the other, and bathroom at the end. 

Don't know which bedroom I'll get, because a) haven't heard back from Theoretical Roomie, so b) she may be there when I arrive. I have termed them Thingummy and Bob, and am now leaning toward claiming Bob, if I have my choice.

It's less than 48 hours until  Saturday morning and the main portion of move-out. Involving driving and cars. And (Ex)Coworker M coming in contact with my mother. Which could go fantastically, or could go like matter meeting anti-matter. Who knows. Most things are packed. Tomorrow,  since the FG is heading up to campus for band camp anyway, I'm accompanying them with a YOOGE suitcase full of clothes.

I also have a bead on a part-time assistant job which sounds rather fun, so *fingers crossed*; and I've discovered or rediscovered "White Collar", and am having a Tim DeKay renaissance. I swear to god I'm not fandom-cheating on Hotch, though.

And there are many, many other family things going on at the exact same time, so basically, it's our annual/bi-yearly tornado of STUFF. Of which my shit is really the least important; and for the first time in a year or so, I feel like I may be on top of it. (Check back in two weeks after classes start. There May Be Flail.)

Rose Tyler
Take Which Doctor Who companion are you? (girls) today!
Created with Rum and Monkey's Personality Test Generator.


You're Rose Tyler!

You are spunky, determined, and as religiously devoted to your Doctor as you are to chips. (He's the only one who doesn't know how sweet you are on him, too.) You never stay put when you're told to stay put, but just when everyone expects you to get roasted by the monster of the week, you turn right around and figure out the mystery. You're sharp as a tack, but also sensitive, knowing when the Doctor needs someone to back him up or when he just needs a hand to hold. He seems to think he can get rid of you... you're quick to show him he's wrong!

Huh. )

The internet is back up here, and I'm relearning a full-size keyboard. So: IT'S COMMENT FIC A-GO-GO!

Or, why Em seems congenitally not able to write anything short.  Yet again, the credit goes to my muses, [ profile] melliyna  and [ profile] katewallace , without whom I am nothing.

Disclaimers: Nothing in either the West Wing or Criminal Minds fandom belongs to me. They belong to Sorkin, Bernero, Wells, Gordon, etc.

Title: "Easy Child"
Fandom: The West Wing
Rating: FRC
Genre: Drabble/Gen/Angst 
Prompt: "Sam Seaborn, the easy child"
Characters: Toby POV.
Timing: Sometime during early S3.


Sam burns slow, and he burns cold.  )


Title: "Morning's Guard"
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Rating: FRC
Genre: Fluff/Angst/Friendship
Characters: Team, with a focus on Rossi, JJ and Hotch.
Spoilers: 5.21, "Exit Wounds"
Prompt: "The next time Dave and Aaron shared a room after "Nights' Watch" (or the next morning)"


JJ Jareau had a list. Not a physical, paper-list, certainly. But it was an important one, nonetheless. )

Disclaimers: No member of the Criminal Minds team belongs to me, they belong to Bernero, Gordon, et al. Even though if they gave me Hotch and/or Garcia for Christmas, I'd be thrilled. All the lyrics quoted here in belong to their attributed authors, and the sea shanty is by Charles Wingate.
Rating: FRC. Angst, some Hotch-whump, but nothing explicit.
Genre: Gen/Hurt-Comfort/Friendship
Spoilers:  None. Set in the nebulous near-future.
Characters: Hotch and Garcia, with some cameos by the rest.
Series: Night Watch 'Verse

Note: a) Title from "Lord of The Rings: Return of the King", for reasons which will become apparent.
b) This is a remix/variation/three-times-bass-expansion-riff on a comment-fic that [ profile] melliyna wrote me. (This being the second time that's happened.) The prompt being "Garcia and Hotch, locked in a room somewhere. (Possibly a broom closet?)" Well, it was awesome, and the closet turned into a maintenance shed, and grew horns and  a tail. (The story did, metaphorically.) So basically, this is all her fault too.

Summary: Why is it that when she comes out in the field, things never go smoothly? After an encounter with an unsub leaves them locked in a shed, a freaked-out Garcia tries to keep a concussed Hotch awake long enough to be rescued, using every trick she knows.

Disclaimers: No member of the Criminal Minds team belongs to me, they belong to Bernero, Gordon, et al. I just have lots of fun playing in their sandbox. And all the lyrics quoted here in belong to the Man in Black, used in homage.
Rating: FRC. Completely cracky fluff fic. Only a few scattered salty words.
Genre: Gen/Crack-Fic/Song-Fic/Friendship
Spoilers:  None. Set in the nebulous near-future.
Characters: Rossi POV, starring the whole team.

Note: Title from the lyrics of Johnny Cash's "A Boy Named Sue". This fic was written because a)I have an awesome and unhealthy love for Johnny Cash, and b) I was listening to a live version of "Boy Named Sue" at work the other day while thinking about CM. So then this fic screamed at me until I wrote it. :)

Summary: Karaoke!Fic. David Rossi is the Lord of Chaos, especially where Hotch is concerned. Nefarious doings ensue, involving beer, the "kids", and his secret knowledge of Hotch's musical tastes.

"But ya ought to thank me, before I die, / For the gravel in ya guts and the spit in the eye /Cause I'm the son-of-a-bitch that named you 'Sue'." )

Disclaimers: Neither Hotch nor Sam, nor any residents of the CM and TWW-verses, belong to me. I just borrow them to have some Naughty Fun, and then put them back where I found them.
Rating: FRAO (My working title for this was "PORNZ!" This should tell you something.)
Genre: Slash/Crossover/Pre-Series/AU/PWP
Crossover: The West Wing
Spoilers:  None. (It is set way before S1 of both Criminal Minds and The West Wing.)
Characters:  Hotch, Sam (Law School Versions)

  So, this is an odd little duck. It's partly inspired by the Hotch-Sam friendship in my story, "Birds and Bourbon." Partially inspired by the awesome AU!Hotch who lives in the Kid-Verse. (In fact, this may be him, I don't know.)  And partially inspired by the fact that I wanted to branch out and write something new. In short, it's all [ profile] melliyna , [ profile] eternal_sadist , [ profile] bluerosefairy  and [ profile] kelachrome 's fault(s).

Summary: Shameless PWP. Duke Law School, sometime in the mid-nineties.  "So there he was, slightly tipsy. His pants half-way off.  On the couch, feeling up one of his best friends. Sam Seaborn decided that he blamed Shakespeare."
"How sweet the moonlight sleeps upon this bank! Here we will sit, and let the sounds of music/ Creep in our ears: soft stillness, and the night/ Become the touches of sweet harmony."- Merchant of Venice, Act V )

Disclaimers: Neither  Hotch, nor Rossi belong to me; they are the playthings of Bernero, et al.
Rating: FRC. Bickering, bickering, bickering then angst.
Genre: Missing Scenes/Gen/H/C
Spoilers:  Set during 5.21, "Exit Wounds."
Characters:  Rossi,  Hotch.

a) Title shamelessly pluralized and ripped off from Sir Terry Pratchett.
b)This idea had been bugging me since "Exit Wounds" aired last week, but it was finally written/originally posted as angsty-shiny for [ profile] melliyna , who wanted both "Rossi, Hotch, a hotel room and scars." and  " Possessive!Rossi/Hotch". Though this is pretty much platonic. At least in the sense that Holmes and Watson in Sherlock Holmes '09 were platonic.

Summary: So, Reid is off reading until 2 AM in his own room, obviously. How Hotch and Rossi shared three nights in a small Alaskan hotel room.

Night One

"Rossi." *silence* "Rossi?" *silence* "Dave?" )

This is a problem. Because "In Plain Sight" is, for once, intruding on my philosophical writing brain. So y'all will have to bear with me.

'it's bad enough that he treats you as a puppet, but then he makes you pull your own strings."-Terry Pratchett )

 Because really, this episode would be worth it just for that opening JJ/Emily/Garcia scene. Everything else is gravy.

"Send.... hell, send everybody."

 5 minutes in, y'all. I think that line needs to be considered a signal of a good, nay, great CM episode. Along with it being in Florida. Their Florida episodes are some of their most twisted, but also some of the most centered. They know what they're doing, they know where they're going with these.

bibliothekara: (Default)
Disclaimer: None of the people from the Criminal Minds universe belong to me. I only play with them somewhat ungently, and put them back when I'm done.
Rating: FRT (no gore, lots and lots and lots of angst.)
Genre: Gen/Future!Fic/Angst
Series: Dragon'Verse
Spoilers: Future!Fic, so everything up to 5x19, basically. Explicitly for 4.25/25-5.09, AKA the Foyet Arc.
Characters: Spencer Reid, Jennifer Jareau, David Rossi, Jack Hotchner, an OFC, Aaron Hotchner

Notes: a) Title from an old sportcasting joke, that I attribute to Keith Olbermann.
b) Sequel to "That Sword Nor Spear" and "Unholy Geometry". Yes, I know, it took a while. Mea maxima culpa.
c) Because [ profile] fabrisse , after the last story, suggested that it "sounds like they need a pattern reader." Subtlest translation I've seen of "Needs Moar Reid." And she was right.

Summary:  While Hotch is in St. Elizabeth's, his loved ones struggle with the fallout. And an old friend comes to visit. But he may not be the only one.

When he was saying nothing, talking seemed like the solution. When he started talking, you found out the problem was worse then you thought. )
bibliothekara: (Default)
Disclaimers: Neither  Hotch, nor Garcia, nor cute little Jack Hotchner belong to me; they are the playthings of Bernero, et al. And all the bits of "Where's My Cow" quoted or mangled within belong wholeheartedly to the wonderful Terry Pratchett. I only borrow them affectionately, and make no money off them.
Rating: FRC. Complete fluff.
Genre: Gen,
Spoilers: No specific ones, general for up to 5.19, since it is set int the nebulous near-future.
Characters:  Garcia, Jack, Hotch.
SeriesNight Watch 'Verse. In spirit, at least.
Note: a) Written after my own copy of WMC? arrived yesterday, and due to some very silly late night Twitter sessions with [ profile] melliyna  and [ profile] kelachrome . So blame them. :)

Summary: Auntie Penelope reads "Where's My Cow?" to Jack. (The Special Version.)


Penelope Garcia knew that it was possibly an ill-advised idea. But that had never stopped her before. Especially since she had always subscribed to the "Corrupting But Fun Influence" School of Auntie-ing.  )

Okay, so I compeletely wussed out on doing a review last week. A), because I am going all Hamlet up in this piece with the life-related indecision. And B) because last week's backdoor pilot sucked ass, pretty much. But my show is back, so here be my weird unrelated thoughts.

"She'd always tried to stare into the light. *Always* tried to stare into the light. But the longer you stared into the light, the harsher it burned you, until the temptation picked you up, bid you turn around, and see how long, rich and dark and streaming, your shadow had become." - Pratchett )
