This was a really cool little two-shot. I love how we got to sort of see the parallels of the decision Strauss presented to Prentiss when she first joined the BAU. The fact that Prentiss was, in every essence, Seaver's mentor just made it so much more painful.
I just wish we could have seen Hotch or Rossi pulling some strings to get her back, and Seaver paying the price. If not that, then I would have been so okay with a conversation between Seaver and one of the boys - perhaps even a conversation with Garcia would have been interesting to see.

I love this so far! You're doing a great job writing Prentiss, and I like the guilt with Seaver. This is awesome and I hope you update soon! I love how you're portraying the team and family dynamic! :D

I love this! First of all, the sarcasm was great. My favorite funny moment was the bit about unsubs and basements, as well as their torture manuals. The amusing bits of dialogue also helped break up some of the intensity.
And the scene with Strauss and Hotch made my stomach hurt too. However, I can see that happening on the show, so kudos for the believability there.
I think you did a good job making Emily functionable, yet somewhat breaking down. I loved her words to Seaver. It seemed so vindictive, but wise, and it made me smile (in an evil way that is ahaha). Additionally, the goodbye to Reid reminded me a bit of the end scene of "Minimal Loss," and it was touching too.
Lastly, the conversation with Morgan really dug deep down into their friendship and their profiling abilities and it just worked. I can't wait to read more. Sorry I didn't review this sooner! :)

FINALLY! I am so glad somebody sees in Seaver what I see! I can definitely see her selling out any member of the team (barring Hotch for some reason) just for a spot in the BAU. It's too bad they didn't go this way in the actual show... Maybe the writers should read a little serious fanfiction like this... God knows that CM could use a little more subtle stuff like this...
This story was very well written and appealed to me instantly (probably because of my negative feelings for Seaver). It made me wonder why CM's writers and producers and stuff didn't write Emily off this way... I mean, after the fan uproar when they first announced the axing of AJ and Paget, and then the fans' reaction to Ashley Seaver, you'd think they'd take a hint!
Um, sorry for my little rant... I just couldn't help it.
Another thing, when you put Strauss into the equation it totally made sense to me. And it had me wondering about her. What did they do with her? Why haven't we seen hide nor hair of her on the show?
Is it weird that I find myself missing the Section Chief?
PS: Did I ever say that you're one of my favorite writers for CM fanfiction? Especially Prentiss-centered stories. Distorted was my favorite. I really hope you get that sequel out soon!
Congrats on a job well done!

A fantastic, realistic approach to the situation. I can definitely believe that Strauss would do something like this, and Seaver kind of does strike me as narcissistic enough to go along with the idea at first. I did feel some sympathy for her, but nowhere near enough to reconcile what she did, so great job :).
I think it would be awesome to see the further impact of Strauss' intervention, if you ever decided to write more, but if not, that's okay.

Strauss is a bitch.
Seaver is stupid.
Emily is beautifully written.
This story is amazing.
Keep it up :)

I was saddened when you stopped writing NCIS fics, because I think you were one of the best at portraying the characters, but I am glad that you're not writing NCIS, so that you can spend more time on Criminal Minds (and that is a compliment, btw - I hope it came out the right way ha ha).
Brilliantly written, you're very good at writing the hard subjects. I sort of thought this was the way (or a least hoped) that Emily would leave and you've done it justice.
I look forward to the next instalment!
