Fic: Connections to the Past [2010-05-24 00:45]
[ mood | tired ]

Title: Connections to the Past
Author: Daylyn
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Rating: PG-13 (FRT)
Pairing: Hotch/Reid
Word Count: ~ 2,500
Disclaimer: All characters belong to their copyright holders. No profit is intended.

Summary: On the flight back from Idaho, Hotch realizes that he has to talk to Reid about the similarities between this recent case and Reid’s torment at the hands of Tobias Hankel.

Author’s Note: SPOILERS for Episode 5.22, “The Internet is Forever” specifically and Season 5 generally (including events from Episode 5.09, “100”). Also SPOILERS for Episode 2.15, “Revelations”.

This takes place in my Five Dinners universe, specifically in the timeline between dinner #4 and dinner #5. (All “Five Dinners” stories can be found here).

My only real disappointment with Episode 5.22, “The Internet is Forever” was that it really didn’t make the connection between the current case and what happened to Reid when he was kidnapped. This is an attempt to rectify that.


Connections to the Past
By Daylyn


Aaron sat at the front of the plane as they flew back from Idaho, ostensibly writing his report. However, he was actually watching the team out of the corner of his eye and their delayed reactions to the events of the case. Aaron noticed that everyone’s attention (except Rossi’s) was on Reid, whereas Reid was sitting in the back of the plane as far from everyone else as possible. His posture was extremely defensive; he sat with the table down, book in front of his face, and messenger bag clutch tightly to his lap. The few times anyone had tried to approach him, he stood abruptly and hurried to the lavatory or kitchen area. It was quite apparent that Reid did not want to talk. However, that did not stop the rest of the team from glancing worriedly at him and from nervously refusing to interact with each other.

Aaron cast a surreptitious glance at Reid. Reid just clasped his bag closer.

Rossi came and sat across from Aaron. Rossi indicated the team with a quick thrust of his chin. Aaron could almost feel the nervous energy radiating off the others, like hungry animals caged in a zoo. Aaron thought that they would actually be pacing if they weren’t on the jet (and would have incurred everyone’s wrath, Aaron’s included).

Rossi cleared his throat and Aaron’s attention went back to him.

“You want to tell me what’s going on?” Rossi asked. “Everyone is kind of acting like they have pants full of fire ants.”

Author: Daylyn
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Rating: PG-13 (FRT)
Pairing: Hotch/Reid
Word Count: ~ 2,150
Disclaimer: All characters belong to their copyright holders. No profit is intended.

Summary: As their relationship deepens, Spencer and Aaron begin to come to terms with issues from their pasts.

Author’s Note: A continuation of my Five Dinners and Team Dinner universe, although this fic can stand alone. General SPOILERS through Season 5.

This is an odd piece of melancholia that grabbed hold of me and said, “Write me. Now!” So I did.


Baggage
By Daylyn

Spencer pulled into the driveway of the house that he was now sharing with Aaron (and Jack, Spencer added in his thoughts). He took a deep breath, his hands clutching the steering wheel. It was late. Well, not ‘late’ as in the time they usually got to bed while working on a case, not even ‘late’ as in the time that Spencer usually stopped reading and doing research, but ‘late’ as in the sense it was 11:00pm and he hadn’t come home this late to Aaron (and Jack) since he had moved in with them about a month ago.

Spencer was returning from an NA meeting and a long talk with his sponsor. It was funny; Spencer knew that he was happy – thrilled even – with his relationship with Aaron. But at the moment it all seemed completely overwhelming. Maybe it was because they were now living together (and were thus more ‘committed’). Maybe it was because he was now sharing a home with a five-year-old boy (and they were all still trying to define their roles in those interactions; Spencer had vowed he would never have children and now he was thrust into a parental type position). Maybe it was because they had responsibilities for and toward each other now. Spencer didn’t know. All he knew was that he had been craving dilaudid – seriously craving dilaudid – like he hadn’t in years. Hence the NA meeting and the long talk with his sponsor.

“You’re happy right now, aren’t you?” John had asked him as they shared a cup of coffee, tucked in the dark corner of a café, Spencer gripping his coffee cup. Spencer had nodded.

“And you’re terrified, aren’t you?” John continued.

Title: The Moment In-Between
Author: Daylyn
Fandom: Criminal Minds
Rating: PG (FRT)
Pairing: Hotch/Reid
Word Count: ~ 550
Warnings: Fluff?
Disclaimer: All characters belong to their copyright holders. No profit is intended.

Summary: In the Criminal Minds novel, Killer Profile by Max Allan Collins, there’s a scene where Prentiss sends Reid to wake up a sleeping Hotch and Hotch enters the conference room a moment later looking rather mussed. This is what happened during that missing moment in-between.

Author’s Note: This is for bowie28, who so wonderfully provided info about the little Hotch/Reid moments in the Criminal Minds novels, and for travelinthedark who surmised that there was a bit of Hotch/Reid loving when Reid was sent to wake Hotch up.

All italics are direct quotes from Killer Profile by Max Allan Collins.


The Moment In-Between
By Daylyn


Turning to the room [Prentiss] asked, “Anybody know where Hotch went?”

With a vague gesture, Reid said, “He’s in one of the back offices, trying to catch an hour’s sleep.”

“Wake him,” Prentiss said.

Shaking his head, Reid said, “He doesn’t want to be disturbed. He said—”

“Whatever he said, he’s going to want to hear this. Wake him.”

Her tone carried enough weight to propel Reid out of his chair and out of the conference room.

Their bleary-eyed team leader came in quickly, jacket off, neck tie loosened, short hair managing to look mussed, and said to Prentiss, “Please tell me this is a major break.” [Killer Profile by Max Allan Collins, p. 172]

Earthquake [2010-04-04 16:06]
[ mood | worried ]

Well, that was interesting.

I just felt what appears to have been a 6.9 earthquake in Baja California, Mexico, which is a few hundred miles from Los Angeles. It was just gently rolling here, but it went on for quite some time and my building just kept going back and forth, gently. My dog ran to the door and wanted to get out. My one cat looked grumpy (although he always looks grumpy). My other cat slept through it. Yeah, they're great predictors of quakes.

Hope that wasn't a precursor for an even bigger quake. *crosses fingers*

ETA: It looks like it's been upgraded to a 7.2 quake. That explains why I felt it so far away.

Author: Daylyn
Fandom: Criminal Minds

Summary: Hotch and Reid decide to tell the team about their relationship. Things don’t go exactly how they expected.

Warnings: A bit of schmoopy fluff? SPOILERS for events that occur in Season 5.

Author’s Note: A continuation of my Five Dinners universe, although this fic can stand alone.


Team Dinner
By Daylyn

Aaron pulled Spencer in closer to his chest as they lay sprawled on his bed, and gently kissed the top of Spencer’s head. Spencer shifted and looked up at him; they kissed lazily, the slow slide of tongues eliciting soft moans. Spencer pulled away with a soft sigh and put his head back on Aaron’s chest. Aaron kissed the top of his head again.

Aaron sighed in contentment, his body sated and loose. He stroked his hand along Spencer’s sweaty back.

He noticed, however, that Spencer was tenser than he should be after such intense love-making. “What’s wrong?” Aaron asked gently.

“Why do you think something is wrong?” Spencer replied, a little too quickly.

“Because your body feels tense. And because you’re too defensive when responding to the question.”

“Damn profilers,” Spencer muttered.

Aaron waited. He knew that Spencer would eventually tell him when something was bothering him, but he learned, the hard way, that pushing Spencer when he wasn’t ready to talk would exacerbate the situation.

Spencer eventually sighed. “We have to tell them, don’t we?”

WARNINGS: Implied Foyet and Hotch noncon (takes place prior to the events of this fic).

Summary: “It had all started when Spencer found himself marching to Hotch’s office. Well, really, he awkwardly moved on crutches to Hotch’s office, but he did it with purpose, so it was sort of like marching.” Sometimes, the start of a relationship does not run smoothly.

Author’s Note: Takes place during Season 5 and contains SPOILERS for the season through Episode 5.11 “Retaliation”, including spoilers for Episode 5.09 “100”. This started as a simple idea for a fairly short fic and morphed into a 20,000+ word monster that took me forever to complete. I can’t tell you my excitement now that it’s finally finished! Thanks to fabrisse for the beta.



Five Dinners and a Breakfast
By Daylyn


Dinner # 1

The first dinner took Spencer by surprise.

It had all started when Spencer found himself marching to Hotch’s office. Well, really, he awkwardly moved on crutches to Hotch’s office, but he did it with purpose, so it was sort of like marching.

They had just concluded the case concerning the brutal, senseless, random beatings in DC. Spencer had spoken to Morgan, briefly, after it had all gone down. Morgan had sounded pissed. Really pissed. He couldn’t understand why Hotch (and by extension Rossi and Prentiss) had just left the scene. Spencer had thought he understood. There was no reason for them (the FBI, the BAU, Hotch) to be there anymore. The outcome was already inevitable, the suspects committing suicide by cop.

Morgan refused to see the reasonableness of that explanation. “We had a duty to see it through,” he had argued over the phone. “I tell you, man. Hotch is completely off his game right now. I have no idea what the hell he’s thinking.”

Spencer had declined to state that he felt Morgan had gotten too emotionally involved with the case (and with one of the victim’s sister, Tamara Barnes). He knew that such an observation would be less than welcome, especially after Morgan told him that he was stopping by her house to, “Let her know what happened.”

Then Morgan had added. “I know I gave you a ride this morning because of your messed up leg. Do you want to wait for me to get a ride home or…”

Spencer thought that he would be waiting for a long time. A very long time. He declined.

Movie Night
By Daylyn


Morgan looked over at Reid as they left the movie theater. “Hey,” Morgan said, “you want to go get some coffee?”

Reid gave him an incredulous look. “It’s me you’re asking. Of course I want to get some coffee.”

Morgan laughed as they headed over to the nearest coffee shop. He shook his head in exasperation as Reid ordered the biggest, most sugar-laden, syrupy thing on the menu. “You gonna be able to sleep tonight after drinking that, kid?”

“Sugar and caffeine are the staples of my diet. They don’t interfere with my sleeping patterns at all.” Reid then ordered a pastry too.

“Yeah, keep telling yourself that,” Morgan muttered. “You better be ready to go tomorrow morning or Hotch will have your ass.”

Reid just smirked at him. Morgan looked at him with bemusement and then ordered a small coffee, no pastry, thank you

They found a table in the corner. “So how did you like the film?” Morgan asked.

“Better than I expected,” Reid replied. “Of course, it’s definitely an alternative reality to the actual Sherlock Holmes stories, but it was enjoyable.”

“Enjoyable? Holmes was kick-ass.”

“He can be like that in the books, too, you know. He was a pugilist, after all, as well as an expert in stick fighting and martial arts.”

“I know, Reid. I’ve read the stories. I have to admit, though, that I’m surprised you agreed to come with me, seeing as this is a bit of an action movie.”

Reid took a big sip of his sugary caffeinated coffee concoction. “Of course I’d be interested. Holmes was the first profiler, after all.”

“Of course, the penguin gave him away.”

“Now I know you’re making this up, Holmes. There is no way there was a penguin in the sheep field.”

“Watson, have some faith. The penguin had escaped and run wild.”

“Don’t you mean waddled wild? Really Holmes.”

“Why would I fabricate my tale?”

“To make me crazed?”

“If that was my goal, Watson, I would do that thing with my tongue.”

“Promises, promises. You—mmmm. Oh yes, do that thing with your tongue again.”

“Watson.”

“Yes.”

“You taste like marshmallow.”

“Good. Come here and have desert.”

Morning Train
By Daylyn


Watson found himself being shaken awake abruptly. His eyes flew open and Holmes was standing beside his bed. "Hurry up, Watson," Holmes exclaimed. "We must make the early morning train."

Watson groaned. "Why?"

"No time for unnecessary chatter, my dear fellow. We must be away at once. Pack a bag."

Watson was up and moving before he even realized what he was doing. "The things I do for you," he grumbled to himself.

"Hurry Watson," Holmes cried as he rushed from the room.

Watson washed his face and prepared to face the day.

A half hour later he found himself on train, heading out of London, with no clue as to where he was going or why.

"Do you want to share some details about this case, Holmes?" he groused. "Or shall I just remain in the dark as usual."

"Oh, there is no case, my dear Watson."

I don't know if anyone would be interested, but I posted an offer in help_haiti. I'm offering to write fic(s) of at least 1,000 words in exchange for Haitan relief donations.

See Here.

Offering fics in Sherlock Holmes, Criminal Minds, and Harry Potter fandoms.

And y'all know I'm a slasher at heart, so pairings offered are Holmes/Watson (or Lestrade with them, I'm easy), Hotch/Reid (but I'll consider other Crim Minds pairings), Snape/Harry, and Snape/Lupin (it's been a while since I did any real HP writing, so I might be a wee bit rusty in that fandom).

While it seems (really) strange to ask for money, the minimum bid is $10. But it is for a good and necessary cause. And this is a good way to kick start myself into writing again.

Rating: PG-13 (FRT) for mentions of drug use and one swear word
Pairing: Hotch/Reid pre-slash
Disclaimer: All characters belong to their copyright holders. No profit is intended.

Summary: Reid watches Hotch struggle

Author’s Note: I have recently become obsessed with the show “Criminal Minds”. Maybe it comes from my love of Sherlock Holmes, and the team of FBI profilers on the show reminds me of a whole group of Holmes’ running around and trying to save the world. I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or a bad thing, but it definitely made me fall in love with the series. This is my first foray into the world of CM fanfic. Enjoy.


Addiction
By Daylyn


Spencer Reid knows that addiction comes in many forms.

His own personal demon, dilaudid, has rendered him, at various times, shaking with want and need and fear and obsession. It has left him terrified of narcotics, terrified of that sweet release and oblivion.

Terrified because he craved it so badly.

Perhaps it is his eidetic memory. Perhaps it is ingrained physical sensory perceptions. But Reid knows that he will never forget the feeling of the fast-moving, cold vibrations as the drug made its way though his body within mere seconds of injection, the frigid buzz that brought relief from pain, and fear, and horror. Mostly he will never forget how diluadid allowed Spencer Reid to escape from the mind of Spencer Reid, if only for a little while.

The Unbeatable Pair
By Daylyn


It had been a little over a week since Sherlock Holmes’ miraculous “return” and I was, to be honest, still reeling from the implications. To discover that Holmes was not, in fact, dead was a thing of wonder. To discover that he had not trusted me, however, was a cause of bitter hurt. I must admit that these two conflicting emotions were dueling within me, causing me no end of confusion.

I was avoiding Holmes. I knew that. I also knew that if he took one look at me, he would know it too.

My last patient had just left for the day. I poured myself a brandy and tried to decide what I should do.

The decision was taken away from me by a loud knocking at my door. I was quite surprised when the maid admitted both Holmes and Inspector Lestrade.

“Gentlemen,” said I, rising. “To what do I owe this—”

“Thank goodness you’re here, Doctor,” Lestrade exclaimed.

“Why wouldn’t I be? What’s going on?” I demanded.

“It seems that the police have misplaced a prisoner,” Holmes said bitingly. “Lestrade insisted that you be brought in on the investigation, although I informed him that you were obviously quite busy as you had not been around since I’ve been back.”

Before I could even formulate a reply, Lestrade said, “It’s Pennington from the Molesey Mystery, Doctor. He’s escaped.”

I sat down heavily. “I see.”

“Lestrade, I am perfectly able to assist you with this blunder without the good Doctor’s help,” Sherlock Holmes said. “There was no reason to bother him.”

Although my mind was a whirl of confusion, I realized that Holmes was peeved with my absence this past week. I did not know whether I should laugh, cry, or punch him. All options seemed viable.

“I did not come to you for your assistance, Mr. Holmes,” Lestrade explained. “I came to you because I thought Dr. Watson might be there. You see, Pennington is coming after him.”

Echoes of the Past
By Daylyn


We were running after Martin Fenwick, Professor Moriarty’s 22nd century henchman, chasing him through a hotel lobby. Inspector Beth Lestrade of New Scotland Yard was shooting at him with her vaporizer, yelling out her ineffective order to stop. I had not decided if her great-great-great – however far removed he was – ancestor would be proud or appalled by her behavior. People were diving to the floor in order to avoid the blasts. I was always a bit astonished at the low casualty rate that we incurred, especially since we were far from cautious in our chase.

Watson, robot Watson that is, was bringing up the rear, scanning for any additional Moriarty accomplices. I saw Fenwick quickly dart into one of the grand ballrooms.

“That way,” I cried and ran toward the room. Lestrade and Watson were close behind.

We burst into the room and found ourselves in the midst of a wedding ceremony. The guests scattered as they saw Lestrade’s weapon.

“Where is he?” she demanded. The guests looked bewildered.

I checked the door, and then noticed a slight passageway off to the right. There was another door which led back into the lobby. Fenwick had obviously given us the slip. Again.

Beth Lestrade looked at the hallway. “Damn!” she cried.

I quite agreed with her.

The wedding guests were looking at us curiously. I smiled in my most charming manner and turned toward them. “Our sincere apologies,” I said soothingly. I looked toward the front of the room. “Best wishes on your nuptials.”

It was then that I observed the happy couple more closely and I realized that the vows that were about to be exchanged were between two men.

I felt my knees go weak.
