Hello there! I'm just starting to read Criminal Minds fics, and just stumble upon this story. I was hoping to see a lot of actions between Aaron and Emily, but I still love this fic. From the first chapter, I got hooked. I even cry my eyes out, when JJ and Will passed away. It was heartbreaking. But then slowly the story brought a lot of twist and turns of events, and created a beautiful family. That is what I believe. That everything happens for a reason. You'll never know when you will meet the love of your life. I'm hoping I could meet mine soon. Someone like Aaron is a great bonus *wink*.
Back to the story, I have to say I love every single chapter. Do you know that I kept reading for 3 days to finish all the chapters? The storyline was good! I love Hotch-Emily relationship so much. Plus the addition of all the kids. Even little Charlotte captured my heart.
So sad I couldn't read what happened the first time between Hotch and Emily, or the second time. I'm glad you gave them twins in the end. They both deserve to have their own child, or children.
Just curious, do you plan to write a sequel? If you do, I surely look forward to it. Couldn't get enough of the couple and their children.
I guess this is my review for all the chapters. Really enjoyed this fic. I love how you slot in flashbacks in between the story, my favourite is the last flashback when Emily first joined the team. That was the best! Please keep on writing!

I waited 98 chapters for no sex scene. Thanks for nothing. Bullshit.

There's no AO3 account to view the cut chapters like you've said there is. Where can I find them?

What episode is the last part refering to?

The vision of little Henry streaking past their living room had me seriously laughing out loud!
| nicene27 chapter 36 . 5/30/2015
That last bit about their weight is terribly endearing :)

Ugh, this situation was mostly Hotch's making at the start, to be sure, but I feel like Emily is needlessly punishing both herself and him by shutting down any possibility for a future relationship. She might not realize she's being vindictive at the moment, but I really think it comes across in the way that she's acting. All of this behavior is realistic certainly, it just sucks that they insist on making things harder for themselves.

Sigh. These two. Distance meet ignorance.

The description of Jack's video just about gutted me; very touching.
| nicene27 chapter 31 . 5/30/2015
Jack! God love him and his impeccable timing ;)
| nicene27 chapter 14 . 5/29/2015
Ah, decision-making skills ;)
| nicene27 chapter 13 . 5/29/2015
Ah, consider me slow, but I hadn't caught on to the idea that Hotch had left the BAU with Emily in mind. Or more specifically, with the intent of putting himself as far out of the way from Emily as possible. If it were any other character I'd say it's kind of an extreme move (and I still believe it is), but Hotch is dedicated enough to his decisions to realistically see this one through in this way. Sigh. He's missing the forest for the trees.

I find Hotch's reasoning for distancing himself from Emily to be totally in character; it certainly makes sense that he would feel unworthy or undeserving of love. So he pushes Emily away, ostensibly for her own good because she deserves better, and meanwhile Emily is left confused by the abrupt distance in their relationship; something that must particularly smart because she thought they were on the same page and heading towards something together. It's a mess, but like I said, I can completely see Hotch denying himself love and happiness in this way.
Only, now that it's been six or seven months since he made that decision, what has prompted him to try and draw close to Emily again? It seems unfair of him to want to be friends again when he never offered an explanation for why they stopped being friends in the first place. Poor Emily must be confused, bitter and not a little indignant.

Those last few lines in the chapter are pretty gut wrenching, but beautiful. I'm hoping that the next couple of chapters will clear up some of the mystery surrounding what Hotch did to Emily.
