Hotly is my OTP. I don't really get worked up about any other ship on the show, but I adore the Hotch/Rossi bromance and JJ/Emily/Garcia girlfriends dynamic. I write Sean into a lot of my stories and I enjoy developing his character.
Did you enjoy Departing Sun?
I've changed it up quite a bit, beyond just names, and have published it on several online retailers. It is now entitled Chasing Charlie and it's under the pen name C. M. Newman. It is FREE on Amazon Kindle, Smashwords, Barnes & Noble, Sony, and Kobo. Please show your support just by downloading the book and giving it a try! You don't need a Kindle device to read Kindle ebooks - they have free apps for all computers and smartphones. If you feel compelled to leave a review, all I ask is that you treat Chasing Charlie as an original work (I did spend several months revising it and making it its own story) and not mention DS. Thanks!

2011 Profiler's Choice Award Winner for Best Overall Fic (tie), Best Het Romance (1st), and Best Characterization of Penelope Garcia (1st) [Also nominated for Best Angst, Best Hotch/Emily, and Best Drama]
Notes: Mix of angst, romance, and family fluff. Things take time. When reading this, just be patient. I had 3 lovely betas - in no particular order, allthatisevil, SussiRay, and sarramaks. Without their help, ATT wouldn't be what it is!
No longer available. This story underwent exensive revisions and is now published as a story with a heavier Christian element. It's available for FREE on Amazon Kindle and many other ebook retailers. It's called Chasing Charlie by C. M. Newman. Check it out!
2011 CM Favorite Fic Award Winner for Best Work in Progress (1st)
2011 Profiler's Choice Award Nominee for Best Humor/Comedy.
I have a collab account with SussiRay, TTTGF (don't ask what it stands for because we will never tell). Our current project is Calleth You Cometh I. Every chapter is one of FFN's different genres, and each genre (including the weird ones like western and poetry) will be used. It's AH/AU. Emily and Hotch met when Hotch was working for Emily's mother, and meet once again when Emily joins the BAU.
-- Departure Series
This is a series of stories revolving around Emily's departure from the show in Season 6 (not season 7!). I believe they were all written before we knew whether Paget was coming back (thank goodness she has! Edit: Crap, she's gone again). They were all written before 7x01, and many of them were written before 6x18, even, so the facts are off (especially so in the earlier ones). All the stories are independent of one another.
