I was kind of surprised at this also, wasn't expecting this, but I remember you had mentioned to another reader not to get too attached to Elle. I wasn't a big fan of Elle, I like Emily so much better, but I wonder what happened to her, what she was involved in.
I also was wondering what a couple of those disastrously experimental and victoriously experimental things were! LOL!
It's rich that Morgan would tell Emily not to patronize HIM...since that's all he does to everyone else! I couldn't believe he was blaming Reid for not knowing what was going to happen to Elle.

wowza! i was NOT expecting THAT... i felt like i was slapped in the face when i read that part... this fic is getting mighty interesting...

I so did not see that coming. When Elle first showed up in chapter one, I thought she would be helping them with a case or something. I'm still in a bit of a shock. I always liked Elle (not as much as Emily, though), and I hate to see something happening to her. I hope they find out who did this to her.
I'm really glad that you update once a day, and even that isn't enough. You've really got me hooked, and that doesn't happen very often. Kudos for you!

Wow, I did NOT see that one coming. Huh, this is turning out to be a lot more comlicated tan was originally presented. I'm kind of liking it! You mentioned in your first chapter that the last half would become more case-fic like so I suppose this is where it makes the transition, right? Although, how are you going to relate this back to the Reid/Emily thing you've got going on here? Hmm, I am intrigued! Great chapter, can't wait to read more! Update soon :)

I have to say, I did not see that coming, but I love how you wrote all the reactions to Elle's murder. Your chapters are always quite long, but I get to the end of each one wishing I had more. Can't wait for the next one!

Much too awesome for words. I never really liked the whole Prentiss/Reid in a relationship thing, but I have to say I quite like this story. I think of all the stories I've read involving these two, yours has got to be the most realistic. Not once have either of them acted out of charecter and you have remained true to the inter team pairing guidlines without beoming cheesy, unrealistic or just damn cliche'. Honestly I'm loving this and I can't wait to read more! :)

Another wonderful chapter. I so love this story. I don't comment on every chapter because I don't just want to keep saying the same things over and over, but just know that I am a BIG fan. I just love how accurately you write the characters.
I can see both sides of this but I can understand where Reid is coming from even more. We know that he knows he has major insecurities, and I can also see where a part of him, not the part that knows Emily deeply, but another, broken part that would have doubts that Emily too would be just as scared, since she seems to be such the confident, beautiful woman, who couldn't be really serious about a man like him. Both of their brokenness and unmet basic needs for love and security just breaks my heart.
I guess Morgan just can't help being an ass. It must be genetic, and this includes that "whipped' comment last chapter when Reid brought his wife back some lunch. I have such a problem with the way Morgan treats Emily and JJ and Reid on the show, (and I won't even go into how he treats Garcia,) with all his BS "protectiveness' because what that means is that he does not see them as competent, professional adults who can take care of themselves. The, "It's my responsibility to take care of Reid" immediately places Reid in a subservient, less than capable, disrespected role, and that is far from loving and caring for him. Even his talk with Emily is assuming that a confident, beautiful woman like herself would be just playing with Reid, that he couldn't really get a girl like Emily. I also think that it wasn't Morgan's place to confront Em, though I know he thought it was. I loved that Emily made it clear that Reid is indeed a capable adult who doesn't need his "protection." I wish JJ had come to talk to Emily instead.
I apologize for this long post. I do think the dynamics of the team are complex and very interesting to think about and discuss, but I'm sorry if I went on too long.

I love this story. You are converting me to a Prentiss/Reid shipper very unwillingly :) His line about losing a fight with an Avon lady cracked me up and felt very 'Reid'. Also I think you nailed the pace and intricacies of his speech when he asks about talking dirty/sounding like a professor. I just saw this dialogue fitting the characters perfectly. Additionally the description of them making love silently in the predawn hours was beautiful and felt like something very natural for them. Something to hide their insecurities behind. I wasn't fully accepting of the pairing, even though I loved your writing, until this chapter. Now I cant wait to see where this goes.

I am loving this story. You're a really talented author. I love how you have managed to keep the characters very true to their on-screen personalities but have not slipped into cliche and exaggeration.
Please update soon, I can't wait to read more!
