Ok, I was already emotional after Emily's letter. I should have known better than to read his reply in the same sitting... So I am crying, again. But this was beautiful, and tragic, and inspiring. Thank you.

I thought it your writing could not get any better- and it just did. That was AMAZING! :) I LOVE IT XXXX

This is beautiful, just like the previous letter. I especially love the last paragraph which pulls everything together. For a man as intense as Hotch seems to be, it felt a little too open at first, until I realised that perhaps for him being in love would involve being that open, that honest and that relaxed with Emily (or anyone else). The one person to whom he can turn and always find safety.
For me you brought that out beautifully, and so I am going to be very greedy and demand some more of your time- please write more of this Emily and this Jack and this Aaron and :) this team. I think you will make them very real.
(Please also include Ashley Seaver if possible- I liked her, though obviously not as a replacement for JJ and Emily)
Also, about the Dear Aaron story, you are one of the few writers on this website (through various fandoms) who can write an M rating so tastefully. Sorry I forgot to mention this there.

These were both really good! They were so cute and sad! You should do a follow up of when emily comes home it'd be so adorable! If you feel like it at least!

This, this is one of the most emotional stories Ive ever read. I like how you desplay the emotions of one of the men on this show that shows the least emotion. Even House, of House MD is better at expressing emotion. This is awesome. Hope this has a sequal.

Ok so you know the first one in this little set broke my heart but I think this one has to top that. I can't believe I missed this when it was first posted - sorry about that.
I think this one was so much more heartwrenching because it comes from Hotch and those that love him understand that he really struggles with articulating his emotions and despite the fact that he remained slightly clipped and detached through this, you handled his expressivity excellently.
I loved how you didnt have him instantly forgive her and that he was clearly angry and did not understand her reasoning despite knowing that she had done what she thought was necessary...
The sadness which was pouring out of the sections about Jack - Oh it was just heartbreaking...
and then his little dream about the future about wanting her to be his wife and to see her pregnant, sweetie I was sitting here with a broken heart and tears running down my face and now my only other thought is that YOU have to write the reunion fic...
Please I am begging you, it's something that is necessary! PLEASE say you plan to write it?
I think I would love you forever.
I adored this,
Love Michelle x

Ooh Wow. . . . *speechless here*
I came home last night after work but I had to get up at 5.30 so I opted for not turning on the PC and in some way I am so glad because I would have bawled my eyes out and be clogged up before sleeping. . . that would have given me a fat major headache! :D
This letter.. .. .. Whoa. It was full of emotion. Everything that we hardly ever see from our stoic SSAIC Hotchner. He touched every subject. His feelings, Jack's & the Team's. His lie to her parents. His lying to the Team. . . to their friends and how hard this was and still is to him.
He was honest about what he went through and still is going through. His anger was palpable for an instant and I can imagine that she sits, somewhere in a foreign country, reading this. Feeling his pain and that she is wholeheartedly reciprocating those feelings.
Her little smile reading about Jack and how he sees their future together. Them being married, with children. A few Mini-me's added to the mix :)
I'd like to think that she had a full smile on her face reading about the ring that is waiting for her. Tears in her eyes from both sadness & happiness.
And I think she is renewed in her belief that they can win this fight. That they can beat Doyle as the Family they were and once will be again.
Now my dear Gabi. Is it weird of me to ask you to write the sequel to this?
To them meeting again? For Emily to see Jack again for the first time after so long?
This my girl was simply wonderful and you made my day off start in the best possible way!
Thank you SO MUCH! *Deep Content Sigh*

This could not be any sadder. Nice job!

Oh my God.
Oh my God.
Oh my -
Okay. Let me just try and collect myself. So, 'Choices' made me smile and squeal like the crazed fangirl I am. But this...tears are in my eyes. I loved, LOVED 'Dear Aaron' and I've been hoping for a sequel, so this definitely brightened my day. But it was SO much better than I had imagined it would be! Your writing is incredible. I know I've said it too many times to count, but Gabi, I'm SERIOUS. You capture emotions perfectly.
My favorite part, though? The very end: "Just know that there is a man who loves you more than anything in this world, as well as a little boy who desperately needs 'his Emily', anxiously awaiting your return. THERE'S A RING IN A BLACK VELVET BOX IN A NIGHTSTAND DRAWER WITH YOUR NAME AND MINE ENGRAVED ON THE INSIDE NEEDING A FINGER TO BE PLACED ON. There's arms waiting to be filled, a fluffy pillow needing the sweet scent of your hair, a side of a bed begging for your warmth."
Seriously. I'm crying over here.
Thank you SO much for this beautiful story. You've really warmed my heart. :)
Much love, Nooshin
