MostEvilIceQueen chapter 39 . 6/7
I hope you update/finish this. I need to see Reid rescued. We all do. This fic is done so amazingly it's a sin and a shame not to complete this masterpiece. This is by far the most unique (and I hope you don't find this confession disturbing or worse...insulting, but it's also quite arousing. Maybe because I identify with the unsub's obsession with Reid's immaculateand preferably unhurtdeliciousness) whump fic I read. I try to steer clear from whump fics but your words just kept overriding my aversion from imagining my sweet genius hurting with, at the very least, curiosity about how things would play out. Basically, I read the fic to have more of Reid's deliciousness (yes, I am quite aware how I disturbingly sound so much like your masterful unsub but the fact that your unsub is amazing kinda softens the blow). Anyway, I will stop myself from drooling over your talented writing and pray I'd find more of your work. all the best! :D
Charlie chapter 8 . 5/26
Fuck bro, this story is so dark and Derek is a psycho! It's so good though! For some reason Derek Danger's inner monolgue makes me laugh. I mean it's terrifying and cray cray. I just have a really dark sense of humor. Great story!
Charlie chapter 6 . 5/26
That's why you never masturbate over the sheets! ...um I mean...great story. xD
Fuego V S chapter 39 . 3/1
SORRY! I was drafting my review to you and I touched accidentally the key, so here it comes again...

Hi Peagoose 6, mi name it's Brenda. I'm a 36's year old mexican fanficker (please, have it in mind in case you notice something weird or wrong with my spelling), and a huge fan of Criminal Minds. I discovered "The Obsession" in January 2015, (after two months of reading almost everything that crossed my path) and since that day, I've reread your fic at least five times (well, six). And I'm giving you all this details because I want you to realize that all the things that I will say about your work are not coming from a teenager fangirl who believes that anything featuring Reid suffering it's worthy of a Nobel Price...

As a reader I'm really picky, and as a writer too (I've work in a fic for over eleven years), and that's why I dare to say that your work its fabulous and that you are really, REALLY talented.
In my opinion, a good story must be the combination of several factors: a good plot (coherent, preferently an original idea but it's not 100% neccesary), a fine executing (a decent ortography and grammar), sensitivity for portraying the psychology of the characters, and also a few more factors that are truly rare to find, like a sharp sense of rythm, (I talk about the way the story and the dramatic tension grows, and the succesion of the scenes)
And girl, you really have it ALL! Since I finished the first chapter, I was trapped and full of anguish...

Spencer Reid it's one of my favorite characters in the show, and I've read thousands of Reid Whump fics, and although I've enjoyed several, I realize that most of them are good or decent ideas poorly executed. They go too fast, the development it's hard to believe or sloppy, the unsub it's almost omnipotent, the aftermath it's explained in half chapter, but the worst to me it's that whatever torture Reid has to endure, they portrayed him like a whiny little girl that melts in sobs and screams since the first moment, and that's enough for ruin everything to me.
Yours, whatsoever, has nothing to do with that kind of work: I truly believe "The Obsession" stands out among all the other fics, because you took the whump to a completely different level: far more brilliant, more intelligent, more refined and clever. Your story it's perfect;
neither too fast or too slow, it makes sense, the way you use the caracters and the way you insert their points of view it's just sensational. And I really mean it when I say that your story it's in my top five: I've cried, I've feared and I've read each chapter with my stomach aching and doing sumersaults, (just like Hotch's stomach! even the sixth time!)

I confess that at first I found hard to believe the main plot because we all now how much the team loves Reid and all the things they have done for protect him in the show, so I was a little skeptical in the first chapter. However, I kept reading and damn, I'm so glad! I consider this the perfect whump situation, because since the first moment he is betrayed by those he cares the most, leaving him broken and vulnerable, so when he is kidnapped a lot of chapters later, he has spent days suffering, and of course, he has all the reasons to feel abandoned and despaired... BUT, even being defenceless in both senses, he still fights with all his mind and soul against this monster...

And speaking of him, Mr. Danger, is, by the way , the perfect UNSUB (you were sooo mean calling him Derek...); this brutal and deranged murderer that at the same time it's capable of being sooo restricted, so evil and clever, so able to exert all sorts of physical pain, psychological torture and humiliation in our beloved Reid, wow... And I say that he's perfect because someone more brutal would have killed him fastly, a common rapist would have used his body already and maybe that would have made possible for Reid to go out of it better in mental terms, but this OCD guy, who wants absolute control over his victims, KNOWS how to handle the clock better than the best NFL coach. And the fact that all this nightmare started because of Reid's best friends makes your work a true gem of horror and angst...
Danger is so absolutely crazy with his devious desires, so relentless, using all sorts of tactics while seeking to destroy Reid in every possible way... And this dicotomy of him "loving" Reid and fearing him at the same time, it's so scary and brilliant... And despite everything, I Loveee that Reid gives the fight of his life, trying to survive and to keep himself sane, but man, everything it's against him. Derek it's too smart, too strong (physically) and it has almost all the advantage...

Now, another wonderful thing of your story it's that you managed a great balance between Reid, Danger and all the other characters. In some moments your Hotch seems a little OOC, but it's truly special the conexion you created between Reid and him, it shows his vulnerable side and makes him more human. And the tension between him and Morgan has me biting my nails! Both so worried , frustrated and ready to tear each other apart...
As for the others, you have portrayed their characters so organic and true that it's like watching the show! You've handled the remorse in each of them wonderfully, and I've loved how you intertwined their memories of our sweet doctor with the progress of the story, each one devastating and precise: Morgan training Reid as a cadet, Prentiss and the compound, but above all, my favorite was JJ and their date (the remembrance of the kiss almost destroyed me...)
But I have to give a special mention to your Rossi: he's the strongest, the wisest, the best Rossi I've read. Certainly, he doesnt have the paternal ways Gideon used to have with Spencer, but he cares, and a lot of fic writers portrayed him like an SOB who doesn't give a damn about Reid's life. And here, he's so good and honest with everybody, and so invested in saving Reid... Hotch it's too involved, Morgan too explosive, but Rossi has the right amount of love for the genius, but also the wisdom, the intelligence for knowing that he has to keep himself calm, or there will be no one left for rescuing Reid of the worst situation he has ever faced. I love him!
Robbie it's also adorable: this chatty and brave kid who worships Reid, it's so cute and cool! It's endearing and heartbreaking at the same time the way he praises him and how he gives him his right place when the adults, his friends and specially his own father make the awful mistake of taking the wonderful Doctor for granted...

And that's why it was SO absolutely devastating when Hotch said "okey, lets review", and then, nothing... PLEAAASEEEE, CONTINUE!

I know it's been a loooong time since you wrote chapter 39, and like an adult writer I know that "real life" sometimes gets in the way, and how demanding families and obligations can get, but I have to say that is truly a tragedy that your story remains incomplete.
I have so many questions: how it will be when they open the suitcase? His dad will show up again? His mom "knows" he's in trouble? I wonder if you ever planed for Reid to be rescued at all, and if that is the case, in which state the BAU would found him...
But specially, I'm waiting for the moment when the team find out that Reid was targeted BECAUSE of the video!
And more questions! If he dies, will the team ever be the same? What about Robbie? What about his parents?

Anyways, I must stop, or I will keep babling all day about how good your work is (I wish I had the time for giving you a worthy review of each chapter!)
Believe me, I truly, truly hope that someday you have the time, the inspiration and the will for coming back and continue with this. And I would love to talk to you, but, if neither of those things is possible at least I had the chance of letting you know how talented you are, and how grateful I feel for been able of reading you.

With my sincere respects,
Brenda.

And this dicotomy of him "loving" Reid and fearing him at the same time, it's so scary and brilliant... And spite everything Reid gives the fight of his life, trying to survive and to keep himself sane, but man, everything it's against him.

Now, Hotch. Wow, in some moments it's seems a little OOC, but it's truly special the conexion you created between Reid and him, and the tension between him and Morgan has me biting my nails, they almost jump for tear their throats...
As for the others, you have portrayed their characters so organic and true that it's like watching the show!

Certainly, he doesnt have the paternal ways Gideon used to have with Spencer, but he cares, and a lot of fickers portrayed him like an SOB who doesn't give a damn about Reid's life.
And Robbie i't's adorsble. its endearong and heartbreaking at the same tine who he worships Reid, how hi praises him and how he gives. him his right vvalue...
That's why it was SO absolutely devastating when Hotch said "okey, lets review", and then, nothing...

Alive or dead¿ in which mental and physical condition? what abourt his parents? what about Robbie? Will the team ever be the same?
Other thing that it's truly amazing, and very rare, it's the way you portray Rossi, because I've found that he's one of the most poorly developed characters in the fics. Here, Hotch it's too involved, Morgan too explosive, and Rossi has the right amount of love for the genius, but also the wisdom, the intelligence for knowing that he has to keep himself calm, or there will be no one left for rescuing Reid of the worst situation he has ever faced.

Kas3y chapter 39 . 2/11/2015
Ok. I found this yesterday. And I finished it this morning (Had to go to work, so couldn't review straight away :\). And I have to say in a few words how AMAZING this story is.

This is BLOODY amazing (As I have already said :P) U my friend have talent. I very much LOVE this piece of work. U have obviously put a lot of work into this and I see no reason for u quite when u are this far in.

I understand if something has come up, but I strongly suggest that u continue this. It has everything to be desired in it and I believe with ur talent it could be a very long and very well done fic.

If u ever get this review could u PLZ PM me and let me know if u are ever going to come back to this, otherwise it might be nice for other/future readers if u update ur profile to let ppl know that u are canceling the making of ur amazing fic :D It has been a lovely read.

P.S. l LOVED it even more cuz it wasn't slash. So thankyou for that :D

P.S.S. I shall follow u and this story in the hopes that u will either A. Write other fantastic fics. Or B. U update this :D
