The buzz of cicadas and the song of an errant mockingbird filtered through the open window and filled the labyrinthine halls of the small museum agents Lattimer and Bering were investigating. The southern night air was humid and both were happy to be in the air conditioned building. Myka even more so. "That is the last time I am doing that." She proclaimed as she picked a twig out of her hair.
"Come on, it wasn't that bad." Pete picked a leaf out of her hair. She swatted his hand away. "Besides, this was the only window that wasn't alarmed."
"Easy for you. You didn't have to jump off the trellis when a car drove by. I landed in the bushes, Pete."
"Well, it gives you kind of a, uh, naturey look. It works." Myka slapped his arm. "For some people."
"Let's just find the artifact and get out of here."
"Ooh, shiny." Pete ran over to a suit of armor.

It's only been a month since Haley died. A month since she was murdered by Foyet. A month since his world came crashing down.
His son doesn't have a mother. She was killed by an unsub that he should have caught. He drinks alcohol to make the memories go away, to drown out the memory of hearing the gunshot over the phone.
He slides down to the floor and cries into his knees. Jack is with his grandmother, which he is glad, so his son wouldn't see him like this. Everyday, it gets him harder to cope. There are times he doest even want to go on living. He has Jack, but that doesn't seem enough. It doesn't seem enough.

"Reid...?" Reid quickly turned to see Hotch, eyes wide, as he watched Reid in the lowest place he'd ever been. Hotch descended on him. "Reid..." Reid looked away, as if somehow if he couldn't see Hotch that the authoritive, handsome man wouldn't be there. "Reid, look at me. Look at me." Reid looked back over to Hotch, not sure what he was thinking. Would he fire him? Would he hate him? "Reid, how long?" Reid bit his lip and looked back down again.

The way Hotch holds Reid to his chest speaks to a fierce possessiveness, of holding many a broken body tenderly in his arms and being the last face they see. And how much that took its toll on him.
Reid's slender fingertips catalog the fine lines on Hotch's face, making him feel every blemish stand out in glaring detail, making him feel older than his years and Reid simply murmurs "memorizing..." and Hotch doesn't move because he doesn't want Reid's tentative, scared fingers to leave, he doesn't want to unwrap his arms from around the skinny waist, he doesn't want it to END.

"Well that went rather well, don't you think?"
Aaron glanced over at his companion and gave him a sort of half-smile, Spencer's eagerness beginning to peak through. They stood on the steps of the police department, the last two to head out to the airport. Nighttime had fallen on Phoenix, Arizona, stars beginning to dot the sky and the young genius looking up at them with utter awe. Frankly, Aaron couldn't blame him. Back in Virginia, one had to go out into the countryside to see some good stars. "It did. We saved her, caught the UnSuball in all, a pretty good week."
Spencer headed for the car, still looking up at them and walking to the back bumper. Aaron followed behind, folding his arms and glancing up for himself. "Isn't it beautiful?" Spencer whispered, tilting his head. "I mean, think about it. Billions of stars in the galaxy, Hotch. Think about how space actually loo

"Do you need help, Reid?" Hotch asked. Reid looked up from the confusing tent right into Hotch's smoldering dark eyes, blushing and looking back down.
"Y- Yeah" he whispered.
"You've never been camping before, have you?" Hotch said, more of a statement than a question, as he assembled the peices of the tent.
Reid shook his head and stared at what Hotch was doing. "How...?" Hotch laughed and threw his bag and Reid's in the tent, drawing a confused

To please my God and make him glad

Spencer Reid looked up from what he was doing at his boss, Hotchner, confused.
"An apprentice?" He questioned, not enthusiastically.
"Yes, the whole team agrees that since you're, no doubt, the smartest, that you'd be the best to teach her."
With a sigh, he replied "When do I start?"
"Is there anything I need to know about her?"
"Her name's Camria Harper, she's just graduated, and I honestly believe that she will be a great addition to our team."
"How can you tell that now if she just graduated?"
Hotch grinned "It worked with you"
With another sigh, Spencer turned back to what he had been doing, reading a book about the making of Star trek which looked incredibly boring.
"Will she be coming on our next case?" he questioned
"If you think she's ready by then. Reid I'm trusting you with this not only because I know you can do the job, but also because it will keep your mind of doing the "

The burn of olive and the argent throb--
Familiar, all whelm madly and surreal
While two veined lilac glows suppress a sob.
Upon a velvet brown, electric blades
Of blue cut clean the curtain, sleeve to hem,
And trim with cords of fiery green, then shades
Of yellow, frightening; I do not know them.
How strange that, it would seem, into my head,
For unknown reasons and without my leave,
An oil slick was leaked, a rainbow bled,
Which begs this question of what I perceive:
Am I to know such pain that pain needs be
Made in some manner pleasanter for me?

"The only gift is a portion of thyself."
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
It was the afternoon on Christmas Eve at the BAU, and Section Chief Erin Straus could see from her office window that the party down the hall was beginning to wind down. She watched through the blinds as, one by one, the team of profilers began to leave. Aaron Hotchner was the first to go, understandably needing to get home to Jack. Next to leave was Derek Morgan, who had a plane to Chicago to ketch. Jennifer Jareau was the first of the women to leave. She too had a son be with. Emily Prentiss, who had been almost dancing with anticipation all week about her big surprise for Declan, left next with a smile and a wave goodbye. Apparently she was going to propose the idea of legally adopting the boy.

I kept my eyes on Hotch as JJ called us in the conference room to discuss the next case. He'd been acting a little strange lately, I would know. Not only for I had my vampire senses to tell me everything, also because I had strong feelings for the man, the man that was my boss. I didn't like it much, it could never work out because of so many things, but.. god, that man made me feel almost alive. Something I didn't feel very often being dead and all.
Of course, my team didn't know that, they'd sensed the change in me after the case that made me like this, but I kept telling them they didn't need to worry and they couldn't tell what it was, and it wasn't like I was unhealthy are something so now, a year later, they just let it pass.
I had my eyes on the unsub, afraid, but I held my gun with my hands tightly, not letting them shake. As he approached me, I couldn't see another option than to fire it. So I did, I fired, the bullet hit him in his chest, and he, he didn't even so much as b

The words continued to haunt him as he lay in bed that night. He would close his eyes and see his face towering over him, as if he was sitting on top of him again. He’d open them, the words would echo in his head. Something was wrong with him, thinking about Foyet the entire time. It wasn’t even close to the anniversary of her death, and that was the worst part. It was for no apparent reason right then—just late night thoughts about some of his old cases.
Aaron lay sprawled on the bed and jerked slightly when hearing the door knock. Sitting up, he looked at the clock and grimaced. ‘1:21 AM,’ he thought. ‘Who the hell decided to come at my door this late?’ He crawled out of bed and slowly made his way to the door in an effort to look awake. The door knocked again, and he opened in the middle of it.

The next few days went like days normally did, Spencer found himself thing about the things that happened in the fourty-eight hours before that dream. He discovered there was a map like the one in his dream in one of his classrooms, but he didn't remember looking at it, however, he remembered looking at the students who where throwing paper planes near the map. None of this made sense, and Spencer hated when he couldn't make sense of things.
Spencer shut the door behind him and glanced down at his doormat, seeing a letter addressed to him. A wide smile quickly crept up his face. He picked up the letter and flung himself down on the couch as he ripped open the letter. It was from Jason and he told him he was always welcome. Spencers grin grew even wider as he lept from the couch and began running around his apartment, packing clothes and snacks for his journey. Now all he needed to do was too call his boss and get a while off, which should be easy since he didn't really work for the sch

So JJ waited a bit until she felt Emily's grasp loosen a bit. Carefully, she lifted one of her arms off of her and finally got out of bed without waking up the other woman. She saw the other woman frown in her sleep and pat the side where JJ was, searching for the missing warmth. When she couldn't find her girlfriend, she grabbed her pillow and hugged it close, burying her nose and mumbling again. JJ felt jealousy grow against the pillow, and almost had the urge to pull it away and climb back in bed with Emily

Reid sat at his desk staring at the letter Gideon had left him. He'd already read it once and his eidetic memory didn't require him to read it again, but somehow staring at it gave him a sense that he'd find some sort of secret meaning, though he knew there was none. Garcia's voice carried over the bullpen.
"Gideon left everything. Except the photographs."
"He always said those were like his family." Reid spoke slightly solemnly, looking back at the papers. It was left unsaid that the team had been his family too, more so Reid than anyone.
