You've given her a heart ;)

Nice take on Chief Strauss. I was quite surprised with her decision in that ep.
| browneyednerd chapter 1 . 12/18/2009
Wow. I liked this episode because it showed that Strauss is truly a human being with emotions. I'm glad she understood why Hotch did what he did.

This was very nice. I have a friend who works in IA (internal affairs). This reminded me a bit of what he goes though.

She is human! Loved it!

Very nice! I like that fact that you expand her personality and give her character a little more depth beyond her seemingly self serving political agenda than the show really does.

I really like this. The real Strauss not the suit that she wears for the job. Powerful and so very good.

Thanks for writing this! That's exactly what I was thinking about Strauss after "100", and you beautifully managed to put the thoughts into words.

Now this was a powerfully written story! Thanks for the mention!
| emzypemzy chapter 1 . 12/7/2009
great POV, really well written!
| CAFBOV chapter 1 . 12/7/2009
Thanks, I enjoyed a more nuanced look at Strauss.

Wow! I really like how you captured the human side of Strauss. In the deleted scenes of season 3, you get a glimpse at how compassionate she really was, and I think you mastered that beautifully.
I like the "but she wasn't a traitor" line because it shows that fine line between bureaucrat and agent-a line that I think would be important for Strauss in reconcilling her own actions.
Great work as always! I just love it when you start new stories, you do such a great job.

Great job! I did love how she appeared human with actual, real emotions at the end of the epi!
