    Summary

    "Okay, so we are never doing a con like that again," Quinn said, after a successful artifact retrieval.

    The job had involved a three-week con with Quinn playing a mysterious crime boss and Eliot playing his violent enforcer.

    "You don't think I played the role well?" Eliot asked. The job had gone off without a hitch and he, for one, thought they had both played their roles perfectly.

    It was an easy space to slip into. It reminded him of how simple things were back in the military and the PMCs, where he could let someone else call all the shots. All he had to do was unleash his violence as directed and trust whoever was directing to take care of everything else.

    Of course, with the PMCs, well. He'd learned the hard way never to trust himself to a corporation, no matter what patriotic values they may have been founded on.

    With Quinn, though. Quinn had played the boss flawlessly--the man with a plan, to whom you could trust every aspect of your being.

    "No, you were perfect," Quinn said. He paused, then added, "It was terrifying."

    ***

    (AU where Eliot encountered Quinn fresh out of his PMCs, and they'd been working together on and off for years when Team Leverage called Quinn in.)

    Summary

    This series is linked to my your blue-eyed boys and (even if i could) make a deal with god, and explores things relating to it that are, in a very definite way, off to the SIDE in terms of the boys, the spies, or even the Main Avengers Crew. A lot of focus on Maria, on Sam, and probably on some supporting OCs.

    Summary

    They all do their best at ignoring inter team profiling. They get good at it, or they wash out. Hotch does his best to not notice when Reid’s fingers won’t fucking stop tapping against his leg or when he adds four extra spoons of sugar to his coffee. Hotch gets good at letting Morgan talk to Reid, or at least he tries to. Hotch gets good at bumping Reid’s coffee away from him, utilizing the same bravery most attribute to disarming IEDs.

    Sometimes though, Reid lies so obviously they can’t let it go.

    Summary

    Watching the three of them, Quinn ruefully thinks that they’re good together. Occupying each other’s spaces as easy as breathing, in sync and utterly smitten with each other. A perfect equilateral triangle.

    There’s a keen sense of loss echoing in his sternum, but he smothers it. You can’t lose what you never really had.

    (or: five times Quinn gets dragged into working with the team and one time things go a little differently.)
