I only found your stories this morning and read the prequel and this story all the way through. I love your characterisation and the way you write the relationships between the team. Looking forward to reading Emily/Morgan now too.

Loved this story so much. Especially the adorable moment at the end with Emily kissing Derek and him asking if she wanted to go for ice cream. Are you still planning on writing a case-fic sequel? If you write it, I'll definitely read it!

This story was a great read and engrossing. The plot was a great follow up to the original story. Looking forward to reading more from you.

Thank you for another great story - really looking forward to future stories.
| Graveygraves chapter 14 . 1/21/2012
Have I mentioned how good I think you characterisation is? If not then I am now. You portray each character so realistically.
| Graveygraves chapter 10 . 1/20/2012
Another couple of great chapter - great balence between plot and case.
| Graveygraves chapter 8 . 1/19/2012
I know I'm a bit late - but I wanted to let you know you definately are boring. This is a realistic squel
| Graveygraves chapter 7 . 1/18/2012
Managed to fit a bit more in tonight - the developement of the case alongside Emily's story is fantastic. I like how you explain what they are thinking - personally and professionally
| Graveygraves chapter 4 . 1/15/2012
So I've made a start on this one and I'm not disappointed, great writing. Love the little detials you add that make it all the more realistic.

What a fabulous ending to such an awesome story. The stories, including this one, by the CM authors are really the best I have read on fan fic. The 1st fan fics I started reading were CSI Miami ones and I must say although I am sorry to say it, that compared to these, they were absolutely crap. The authors kind of revolved around the couple only and there was hardly any substance but at the time I had nothing to compare them too. I have also read some really good Castle and NCIS ones but I absolutely adore most of the CM ones I have read. The authors, including yourself, really understand the characters and put such a lot of substance into their stories.
Regarding chapter 19 - very funny when Emily gave Morgan a hug and said its from Garcia.
Chapter 20 - the Hotch - Rossi conversation was really top class. I have always wanted to read a conversation like this, how Hotch would react when he suspects that 2 people in his team are more than just friends, even though they were not sleeping together at this point. Rossi just nailed all the points on the head, saying that Hotch should just let them be if they haven't lost their professionalism. I was LOL when Hotch said that how can them going into each other's hotel rooms be professional and also LOL when he actually heard them opening and closing the doors! He must have super sharp hearing! And it was so funny when Hotch thought that none of the seminars he had attended had prepared him for this and silently reprimanded them for putting him in this position.
I know that you don't have time to write each and every story every fan of yours requests obviously but this was just such an excellent story, even for people who don't ship the couple and who are just a fan of the show cos they didn't actually get together until the very last paragraph in the last chapter. And the case was just superb. I for one would love a continuation of this, even a 1 or 2 chapter fic set 3 months after this (a case based fic) as you said in the bottom of this chapter. The 15 year thing is alright but I prefer to see what will happen in the shorter term when they are actually a dating couple working together because I think I have only read one fic like that and that author stopped updating after like 4 chapters. I think there's loads of potential for a story like that - Hotch watching them like a hawk to see if their personal relationship will compromise their professionalism etc.
Tomorrow I'll start reading this Addy fic. I would love if it was Derek's baby though!
Have you heard of Eton college in England where Princes William and Harry went to school? Well, where I teach is like the Eton of SL. The kids will be dropped in BMW's or Audis and they have maids to basically do everything for them. Are they badly behaved? Not really. Since their parents are paying such high fees, they do expect results so about 50% will be interested. The other 50% are lazy since they are sitting on money so they probably don't see the point of working hard but they usually don't give me any trouble cos I've been there for 14 years so I've taught their siblings and cousins and they've all got good results so I guess they trust my abilities as a teacher and the majority enjoy my classes. What I don't like is that like in CM, the management pushes us for results. Well, its kinda hard to get results if the students aren't willing to work. They do give some teachers a lot of trouble though although probably not as much as kids in schools in Europe and USA.
No, we don't dissect stuff. Dissections were removed from the British syllabus long ago. I am not even sure if the local syllabus does it. We do other experiments like with enzymes and some field work.
I read in the previous chapter that you quit your job. Sorry about that. Have you managed to find one? I think I prefer the kids to my boss and coworkers. But again, cos I've been around for a while, I am the oldest (not in age, but in years of service) in my department.
Yes, I have watched all seasons of the X-files and I love the show and Mulder and Scully but I have never rewatched it. I guess at the time, I didn't own a DVD player. Some day I would love to watch all again because there are some episodes I missed. I was thinking today, I wish all shows were like Grey's anatomy to me. I love it and I love the characters but its a different love to what I have for CM. I don't rewatch or read fan fics of Grey's and as much as I love the characters and enjoy the couples, I don't think I'll mind very much if any of them break up or someone leaves the show. Now on the other hand, for CM, I will mind this very much (not the breaking up since there are no couples!).
You had said that you would like if Paget hosts a show because she's so hilarious. I have only watched one interview with her, where she came on this show wearing a lovely black dress and talked about working at a joint where there were call girls or something like that I think, and the host asked if her parents knew. I would love to see more interviews with her. I saw a youtube clip of the whole cast being interviewed from seasons 7 and 4 and also the making of Lauren. If you have any more interviews with her, could you please send me the links. I couldn't find anything on you tube. I saw one where she had talked about twitter but I didn't watch that cos I am not on twitter.

OMG, the cliffhanger. I am gonna read the next chapter right away.
I LOVED the Emily- JJ conversation at the start of the chapter. They were as good as the Emily- Derek interactions and I am so glad JJ got to do something a bit different to what she usually does. It was funny when JJ said to Emily 'aren't you worried that your... whatever the hell you two are - is in there'.
The conversation between the 2 brothers was touching although I would have felt a lot more sympathy for Matthew if he didn't kill the pets!
Hey, I just watched 'Haunted'. No wonder after watching this, the Emily- Hotch shippers got ideas! I thought it was a little odd for Emily to offer to walk Hotch to his apartment after the case and also, in the last part of the case, when the unsub shot the father and Hotch walked out of the house, Emily walked after him and I was thinking WTH! I mean, the other team members didn't walk after him! Thank God it was just this ep.

Love, love, love the fact that both JJ and Emily are playing a big role in this chapter. Absolutely great. I want to finish this story but I am so tired and I don't want to read it when I am not 100% alert.
| shad75 chapter 16 . 1/13/2012
OMG, excellent chapter. As much as I love Emily, I am glad JJ is getting to play a role and do something different to what she usually does. It was very funny when Reid told Rossi 'if you kill us, we can't help' while he was driving and also told Emily that she will fit the part of the tyrannical boss better!
I am wondering what to read next when I finish this which I most certainly will do over the weekend. I thought of starting the Addy series.

Grrr, I thought I was losing my mind not being able to read a chapter for the past 4 days. I'll tell you why in a minute after reviewing this chapter. Nice one. I like that Derek knew what type of Sandwiches everyone liked! I was also LOL at the way the waitress hit on Derek. And the mother sleeping with her son to give rise to another son was creepy!
Where's this poll you are talking about which you like us to vote on what stories we like?
Work was absolutely crazy the past week due to many reasons. One was one of my friends who was head of secondary (that is our immediate boss) for the past 3 years was asked to step down from her post. Apparently she made some huge mistake with a student's marks and tried to cover it up and got so many others involved as well. Now, although she was a friend of mine long before her appointment as head of secondary, I must tell that she is not a very fair person. She assesses people not on their performance but on whether they are loyal to her. As a result, she had huge problems with my best friend, who I agree is not the most easy person to get on with, but she certainly didn't deserve the heartache the head of secondary gave her. I have a feeling many people were thrilled by the demotion. The odd thing is, this lady (the former head of secondary) is still continuing in school as a teacher of English (she has her degree from Cornell by the way). Now, she's an excellent teacher but really, I think if the organization wanted you to step down from the head of secondary post and humiliated you at a meeting (which the big boss did), I would resign. Its highly awkward to stick around. When the former head of secondary asked me what I would do in this situation, thats what I told her. Added to that, there was a demanding parent this week too. Most parents are really nice and reasonable but this was one of the odd ones who was rude and insisted that I should allow his son to sit the main exam even if he got only 33% for the exam we had in school (usually, to sit for an external exam set by London, they have to pass the exams we have for them in school).
Argh, I can't believe this chapter was a cliffhanger! I don't have time for the next chapter right now cos must go set an exam paper but shall read it in the night for sure.
Oh, did you like the new NCIS? I was shocked that Ziva even considered the proposal by this Ray guy. So if he wasn't a bad guy, she would have actually married him? I was happy at the outcome though and Tony was great in the episode.
| shad75 chapter 14 . 1/8/2012
Outstanding chapter. LOVE Derek telling Garcia 'I love her' and Garcia saying if 'her refers to an attention phobic, kickass, dark haired beauty' and Derek saying 'couldn't you just say Prentiss'. Its funny also when Garcia said that the bossman has his own brass set when Derek said Hotch will have his balls! Diverting slightly to talk about NCIS cos there is a parallel here, in the last season, Gibbs hated that EJ and Tony were dating. I am with you that EJ is wayyyy better than Seaver but that she was too pushy and had no Chemistry with Tony. Not that Ray has ANY with Ziva. But at NCIS, its just Gibbs' rule that coworkers can't date right. Its not an NCIS rule as was pointed out by Tony to Gibbs in episode 21 of season 8, dead reflection (one of my favorites).
Okay, now coming back to this chapter, why does Derek tell Garcia 'I don't do relationships'? Do you gather he's a player because of episodes like 52 pick up where Reid asked him how many phone numbers he got from girls in that club? And there was another episode where he was dancing around with some girls at a club and he went back in the line so that he could chat up that agent Jordan in the coffeeshop. But wouldn't any single guy sort of do this? I don't know cos I really haven't dated much. Only 2 guys and the last was over 10 years ago! I know in a season 5 episode, Derek was sort of dating some victim's sister right? Tamara or something. Although that never went anywhere that we saw of.
Gosh, Emily getting a call from the George guy is way creepy, specially when the guy is in prison. But like he said, cel phones are all over the place. I love Morgan being all protective.
School is alright. Our term starts in September. I have 2 classes of 16 and 17 year olds. Class control is alright cos its an expensive fee paying school so there are few disruptors. But of course, they are very lazy and anything to check their mobile phones. Cos they've had things done for them their whole life as their parents are well off. But I get on well with most of them as I've been there for 15 years now and have taught most of their siblings. They do give some new teachers a hard time and also some old ones. Hey, your Addy series sounds really interesting. I teach Biology but I have never heard of cases where women didn't know they were pregnant. Thats so bizarre. So was that a kind of talk show? No, I haven't heard of that show you mentioned. So is this Addy series following up this one, meaning the baby is Morgan's? Gosh, I can't wait to read what Hotch said when he found this out!
Ya, I can't also believe that no one else seems to be creeped out by my friend's husband. Maybe cos now he looks like the ideal family man and everyone forgot what he did in 'his moment of insanity' all those years ago?
CM was nominated for best crime drama alongside NCIS, Castle (2 of my other favorite shows), Bones and CSI. I watch Bones and CSI but I don't like them much. You are quite right about Tiva. Thats why I prefer shipping Derek and Emily to Tiva. At least they happen only in fan fic (bad thing) but its better than Tiva which takes 2 steps forward and 1 step backwards on the show and annoys people! I wish I could watch this choice awards on tv. Normally the actors from the nominated shows come right?
