A cross between a bunny farm escapee and an ear worm (Is there such a thing as an idea worm?), this plotline has been haunting my muses for weeks:
Given a startling number of similarities in their backgrounds (troubled mothers, absentee / neglectful fathers, being strung up on flagpoles, disillusionment and inability to fit in with early and middle school schoolmates, a propensity to being kidnapped and life threatening situations, and on the job exposure to weaponized versions of plague and anthrax - to name a few), what if Tony DiNozzo and Spencer Reid were meant for each other, but not in the way that most of their colleagues would expect given their stereotypical jock and genius profiles.
What if Spencer has a hidden wealth of confidence and skill that his colleagues occasionally witness but only in glimpses (like the shot at the end to the LDSK case)? What if the glimpses seen of Tony's vulnerabilities, empathy, and intuition were more inherent and not just peaking out around the edges?
What if Spencer is Tony's bamf sentinel and Tony is Spencer's empathic (and emotionally fluent (?) at some future point) guide?
