    Summary

    spencer is just a kid. that’s what his team thinks, after all. he could be 70 years old and they would still see the 23 year old fresh from the academy. he’s mostly grateful for it. then, he isn’t.

    prison will do that to a person. it will make your nights restless, will make you so paranoid that you sleep with a gun in your bedroom. it will make you realize you’re not a kid anymore.

    what everyone fails to realize is that spencer has gone through these mistakes before. he always makes them. he used to try to fix them, try to right his wrongs.

     

    now? he just doesn’t have the energy. decides it’s better to forget how it felt to pick yourself up.

    (anything before prison just doesn’t seem to exist anymore.)

    Summary

    When the rain finally ceases to whisper, it’s at the utter amazement at seeing the frail, feeble body of the boy they used to mock in the hands of someone stronger than Him. And as the world seems to come crashing down in that one split-second, it isn’t Him that’s tearing it down, but the memory. It’s the thunder and the rain that pelts against weak skin.

    Or; Hotch witnesses first-hand as his youngest agent’s mental health shatters and is left to pick up the pieces. Along the way, he also learns that he and his subordinate have a more similar past than either care to admit.

    Summary

    Everyone had problems, but some are better at opening up than others. Derek, Spencer, and Hotch fall into the latter category, though not without good reason.
    This started out as a short ficlet about how Spencer's life would be with an eating disorder, but quickly spiraled into an 'au' featuring multiple cases, Derek and Spencer developing mutual crushes, Spencer being whumped gratuitously, and Rossi being a bamf father figure.
    Also look forward to my best attempts at Penelope dialogue, Emily being lesbian, and Spencer learning about meme/internet culture.

    Summary

    He was nervous, and Emily could see the tension in his frame, written all over him. She dropped into the chair across from him as he sipped the water. “What’s going on, Reid?”

    He sighed deeply, glancing up to look her in the eye. She could see his lips turned downwards into a slight frown, and the dark circles under his eyes that betrayed his lack of sleep. “I owe you an apology.”

    Summary

    The clouds that loom over the faint blue expanse of the sky mockingly poke fun at the small house on the end of the block. They shed their tears, filling the gutters, flooding the flower garden and leaking through the decaying roof. Their tears spy on the family, watching with bated breath as each one slowly falls apart at the seams.

    They laugh when the boy falls at the hands of his father’s rage and whisper rumors about whether or not he will leave, and when.

    Or; the real reason William Reid abandoned his son and wife.

    Summary

    It’s been a week. A week since she helped Emily disappear, a week since she watched the team bury what they thought was one of their own, her own shame at her deception burning through her as she watched their tears. A week since she held Spencer’s hand at the funeral, watching him cry silently and wishing things could be different.

    “I think you might want to go back to work in order to compartmentalize and bury this grief...but it’s not healthy. Sooner or later, you have to let yourself cry.”

    “I’m crying right now,” Spencer replied with a half-chuckle.

    Tara smiled. “You know what I mean.”
