I loved this story. I thought Hotch getting up to apoligize in front of everyone was so sweet. Quick question, in which episode did Emily drink w the guys? Ive seen every epi and dont remember that so I missed it somehow? Was it Hopeless, cuz thats the epi that aired when you posted this?

So I'm a long time lurker, and an all around bad reviewer/ person. For which I generally feel slightly guilty, but it takes a bit for the generally guilty to transform into action.
I'ma start here and then work my way through for a bit.
So on a general note, I love your characterization of Emily. You give her just the right amount of socially awkward self-over analyzing-ness, and just the right amount of general badass. She's entirely endearing, and you've managed to highlight and develop all of the characteristics that made me fall in love with her in the first place. Your Hotch (slightly more so than canon Hotch, mostly because canon Hotch is so inscrutable and his inner sweet and cuddly is hidden) is like no guy I've ever met who wasn't related to me or gay, but you give me hope that there might be such a fellow out there.
I love how well structured all your stories are. It shows a level of professionalism, and respect for the material you're working with, which is maybe more endearing than your Emily. I also enjoy your style a lot. I'll admit, the very conversational nature threw me at first, but as I've read more of your work, it's grown on me. I really like the rhythm you develop, and I think the less formal style allows you to achieve an excellent momentum, which a more formal style would have restricted you from. The conversational style also really helps to break the barrier between character and reader faster.
I think the last might have been unclear. But by presenting the story so in perspective, you allow the reader to engage much more closely with your protagonists. (Too much literary analysis this semester. I can't turn it off. I'm sorry).
Ok, this particular story-wise:
This was the first story of yours I ever ever read. And I think, even though now I know it fits in your Universe A, that it's really very nicely self-contained.
My favorite things: The two levels of perspective. The basic narrative level vs. directly quoted thoughts. Yay. Also, Hotch's apology, and the angry older women. (Whenever I embarrass myself in public it nearly always involves a few of those).
One-critical-thingy-but-very-minor-little-quibble-feel-free-to-ignore-style-sort-of-thing: Sometimes I feel like you over comma, under period. I know. It's really minor. For example: instead of "She nodded, 'okay,' her eyes crinkled 'I forgive you.'" It would be "She nodded. 'Okay,' her eyes crinkled, 'I forgive you.'"
I realize that sort of thing is really, really minor. But I thought if nobody pointed it out you might never notice you did it. It's totally a personal preference thing. If you feel longer sentences fit better, go right ahead and use them.
I promise to be shorter and more to the point in the next one. But I've got a lot of catching up to do, and it was kind of hard to find a place to start.

Pod Hotch is a bit of a cranky bastard. I much prefer our regular Hotch.
I loved his apology, he really is a sweet guy.
| katdemon1895 chapter 1 . 10/15/2009
poor emily, and just gah! to hotch's behavior, i never really picture him shouting at anyone, especially not in public but the way he made it up to her was sweet
| Jazmingirl chapter 1 . 10/15/2009
I love it

This was funny.
fav. line 'And only Emily could actually politely tell someone to shove something up his ass. All she had to do was add a “sir” onto it and she could basically get away with anything.'
Giggle... I also loved the Pod Hotch connection, that was cute too.
I once arrived early for my flight only to have had it delayed for four hours. That was fun, meant I missed by connecting shuttle too. Yay Public Transport - it's way harsher when it's the transports fault... when it's yours you just kind of have to go - yeah, my bad, only this time it was sick Emily's bad and Hotch went Postal on her. I'm so glad there were old ladies giving him the HEX.
I also absolutely loved the public apology - righteous! (Imagine I'm a gnarly surfer saying that)

Ah! This was hysterical! I laughed so hard. I loved it!
"That...was a MORGAN tone." - priceless. D
I loved last nights episode!
Is it just me, or did that little scene where Prentiss, Rossi, and Hotch walked away from the shot out look undeniably awesome? It just made my night! I loved it how she got to drink with Rossi and Hotch too. )

Bwahahahahaahaa! And how funny would it be if one of those people in the station recorded Hotches rant and recant on their iphone and puts it up on youtube...and Garcia finds it.(and cait701 says hi)
| Ecda chapter 1 . 10/15/2009
Loved this one. It is fun to imagine Hotch being that angry! Good for Emily she did not forgive him quite so easily!
Thanks a lot!
