Reviews for A Fractured Mind
SingingLunatic chapter 1 . 1/5/2015
You wrote this a long time ago, but I'm still gonna leave a review. It was very good. It takes a lot of things into account. Many people wondered why he took the bottles. And I just wanted to say, I love all your stories. They're very good.

Max: Did you just say Huggle?

Me: leave me alone. yes I said huggle. This was beautiful.

God, Spencer...

He's such an amazing character, he really is. Writing him requires such depth of knowledge, such a good hand...

You wrote him beautifully. )

P.S. Why, yes, I AM a Dr. Spencer Reid fan girl. ;D

That's exactly what I want to know. "Why did you take the bottles, Spencer?" OMG, this was awesome.

I liked this. How ironic is it that I found this story after I just watched Revelations tonight! LOL The lil fact about foot nerves was interesting! :)

Wow... So, I realize that you wrote this like 2 years ago, but I try to always review (except when my computer is being glitchy, which it can be) Especially when it's a good story. And this was very, very good. It was very powerful, well written and sad. Sure, stories like this have been done before, some better than others, and your's was one of the better ones I've read. Just wanted to let you know that. It makes me feel bad for him all over again after what happened in that tiny little shack out in the middle of nowhere. Wow, just realized how long this review was... even at 4 a.m. I'm rambling. Sorry... Anyway, this a very moving story and I loved it :)

This is good. My only nitpick is that Reid actually chose one person to LIVE not to die. He couldn't bring himself to choose someone to die. Turns out the one he saved was being portrayed by the wife of someone on the show. Possibly Chris Mundy. LOL. I need to watch the commentary again to see who they said it was.

I did some research on dilaudid and it actually alters brain chemistry to work and it is highly addictive. They said a person should never just stop taking it completely without consulting a doctor and detoxing properly.

I also wondered what would have happened if the team had not shown up. Reid had pretty much saved himself bc he got the gun away and shot Tobias. But then he would have been there on the ground in the graveyard near Tobias. The drugs would have been there. I sort of think that Reid would have taken the drugs and injected himself right there on the spot. If the team showed up a few minutes later they might have found him unconscious (or just highly drugged up) next to Tobias's corpse.

What they didn't mention during the show was that it was below 32 degrees outside and Matthew Gubler was freezing. He joked that he had an icicle hanging from his eyelid.

So Reid could have frozen to death or suffered severe hypothermia.

I still wonder what Reid wrote to his mother after that- or if he stopped writing for awhile. He knew at that point that she told other people what he said in his letters so he could never admit to being a druggy without incriminating himself.

I was actually rather disturbed that the team members (who suspected he was on drugs) didn't step up and do anything about it sooner. Given the circumstances of how he came to be addicted, the FBI could've detoxed him properly and not had it threaten his career (since the drugs were forced on him).

Your story got me thinking. Heh.

This was so insightful and portrays Reid so well. I really wish you could make more chapters of it. I would love to know how the hospital visit, and plane ride went. Or if Morgan stayed with him for a while, and guarded him. You are an amazing writer! Thanks for sharing.

Okay. So bc I was enamored with your "other" story, I'm gonna stalk out the rest of your writing. You truly are talented my dear. This was true to Reid's Character, and I could easily see this turmoil coming from that horrid situation.

Thank you for allowing me to find a great CM writer-I really needed you! LOL! Momma.

Sue1313 chapter 1 . 7/9/2008
I watched the show tonight also and I had the same question in my mind - why take those bottles? Gideon was right there - why didn't he watch and stop him? I love your story.
Spirited Celebration chapter 1 . 7/9/2008
O.O Very good. I have never read a fanfic where it has Spencer as slightly Scitzophrenic, and I think you did it very well. At least I hope that's what you were aiming for! Great little story, too.
