Criminal Minds Fic: Two Ends One Beginning  
Written for cm_drabbles Challenge #1 – Beginnings

Title: Two Ends One Beginning
Pairing/Characters: Aaron/Emily
Rating: PG
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Seasons 1-3
Summary: Aaron is ready to work late until Emily offers an alternative
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

A circle of light illuminated Aaron's hands as he flipped pages, absentmindedly rubbing where a wedding band once was.

"Still here?"

Emily stood in the doorway, fiddling with her ring finger as well, a nervous habit his inner profiler had catalogued her first day there.

"Your file didn't say anything about you ever being married."

She immediately broke her hands apart, looking embarrassed.

"Engaged. Clearly not anymore," she said, flashing her bare hand. "So..." She pointed to his left hand. "I'll tell you my story if you tell me yours."

He hesitated then closed the file.

"First round's on me."

cm_drabbles is a new Criminal Minds drabble comm started by my friend lostandalone22.

Please go check it out!

And hey! A new pairing to add to my ever growing list! Bet you guys didn't see this one coming...

Oh! I love Hotch/Prentiss! It's like my favorite CM pairing!

It makes me happy when you write CM. =P

I'm starting to warm up to them. I'm writing a Hotch/Haley fic too, but it's set further back in the past so I feel like I can have both of these pairings and not be odd about it.

Here's hoping with the new drabble comm I'll write more often in 2009. You should give it a try!

New drabble comm? *perks up* I'm all over it!

I've been so caught up with my new favorite fandom CSI:NY lately that I haven't written too much CM, but it sounds like it might be time to get back on the ball.

If you like Hotch/Prentiss, dragonladyk writes probably the best H/P fics I've yet to see--both PWPs and epics. She's responsible for getting me hooked. :)

I like them, but I'm pretty devoted to M/G and M&G in CM. Though I adore Reid gen as well...

Reid gen was much more fun back in season 1 when he was a gawky, geeky, socially inept dork. More so than now, I mean. *g*

So much lovely angst...*sigh*. :)

See, I keep my Reid in my head the way I like him. Canon be damned. ;-)

Have you ever read anything by buffyaddict13? She writes the best angsty, nerdy Reid-fic ever. She's currently got a SPN/CM X-over going on that I'm addicted to.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on January 21st, 2009 03:04 am (UTC)
I know the name, but I don't read much since I spend most of my time writing.

What's the premise of the xover?

The BAU gets called out to Cold Oak, South Dakota on a multiple homicide that appears to have a satanistic signature, and the ghost of one of the victims starts appearing to Reid. Because he has a family history of schizophrenia, he worries he may be having a psychotic break, etc. Meanwhile, Sam is trying to find a way to get Dean out of his deal with the crossroads demon.

Intensely brilliant. Reid (and Sam) to the nth degree.

Nice! I'd never wondered too much about Emily's past, and you brought it forward well.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on December 22nd, 2008 12:01 am (UTC)
Thanks! Statistically it's unlikely that at her age (ha! profiling!) she's never even been engaged, so I figured both her and Hotch have exes, but are both ready to start again finally. Not super shippy, but the hint of it was enough for me.

I like this. They don't show enough of Emily's back story, and I would love to see them bonding.
Emma DeMaraisemmademarais on December 22nd, 2008 06:45 am (UTC)
Thanks. Emily has really grown on me. Her mother, the ambassador, is so intriguing it makes me really want a good backstory for their life. What I really want most in canon for them? For Emily to be the one who makes him smile for a change. (Although, it being pretty much an annual event I may have to wait a season. LOL)
