This. Just, this. The perfection of it. Reid! And I do rather like Strauss.

First off, awesome job. D
I really liked how you portrayed Strauss's character. As often as she's shown as being the in-house antagonist on the show, I agree that she's really not that bad. Is she my favorite character? Hell, no. But there's definitely a person there with actual normal feelings, despite what others may like to think. Bottom line, it's refreshing to read a fanfic that doesn't portray her as an evil, two-headed witch.
Even the subtleties of her trying to win Reid over with flattery in the beginning or her history with a college counselor screams of her character. I don't believe you just went in the right direction, but that you somehow managed to hit the mark exactly, which can be difficult with a character that we see so rarely. That being said, I think you definitely had a firm grasp of all of the characters.
I especially like this section:
"Other than that, it comes out in odd twitches around his mouth, salt in Agent Morgan's coffee, and an inexplicable lilt to his voice when he addresses her. "Ma'am" is sounding less and less like a schoolteacher's due and more closely comparable to a tolerated mother-in-law."
I thought the wording was perfect for the changing perspective. But the whole concept was great, and your portrayals were great, and your writing was great, and you're just... great.

Again, SO SORRY for the wait!
Man...I NEED to re-watch that now...XD You know, all things considered I actually like her too. It's just that she's so much fun to DISlike. :) Heh heh, yeah I don't think the "Mom Glare" would work on Reid at all either..Though now I'd LOVE to see Reid giving one of the team a good "Mom Glare". *sighs* Hehehehe. XD
Hey did you see the episode where Morgan gives the press Reid's number? I swear, if I'd been able too I probably would have rewound the scene where he finally snaps over and over again just so I could keep watching. XD It made me giggle. :)

Zany, are we crushing on the good doctor? I detect hints of fangirlism in here, I'm sure of it.
How do you know which episode is the 100th one anyway? Would it be on Youtube? I wanna see the confrontation that spawned this.
Heh, attitude with a capital A.
It's really very impressive how inflection can change a words entire meaning.

I don't know anything about this show but I liked this story!
I like how you wrote the characters; I feel like I got to know who they are somewhat. I also liked your little allusions to other episodes/characters because it makes me curious about this show.
I liked how Erin saw herself as the mom figure. I was picturing her as the police chief from Psych though that's probably not at all what she looks like. Anyway.
This was cool! :)

i like it
you don't know weather or not (but i'm pretty sure is) Ried is mocking her
| Alicia of the Temptation chapter 1 . 1/4/2012
This was tense and amazing. I love how Strauss is obsessing over that one word, and flipping a table because of it. You made Reid seem so cool-headed, even though everyone else looked like they're about to have a psychotic break — and I love it. Excellent job.
| Marauder-In-Disguise chapter 1 . 1/4/2012
Wow, this was funny . I agree that Reid always seems to be having a lil' bit of attitude with her. Great job!
| New Dawn Rising chapter 1 . 1/4/2012
Yet another good one-shot. Happy New Year! :D

See I dislike Erin. She seemingly co,es out of nowhere in the show. Nd while I can admit tht she seems to empathize with the team when they are going through so etching it horrible. It never fails that she always appears to be trying to break them up...at first it could have been explained as her feri g hotch would soon be over her in the chain of command and yet it soon became obvious that he wouldn't ever leave the bau and she tried vn harder to get rid of him for some reason even though he wa no longer a threat...but I would agree tht despite Reid's attitude towards in 100 she define toy seemed to have a semi soft spot for the young doctor... I have a question. In the memoriam episode the computer says Reid joined the bau at 22. Everyone seem to agree on this...however in Ldsk just a few episodes after Reid has turned twenty four hotch says that he has had to deal with the kids " whining for three years" when it comes to gun qualifications...so I just wonder which one you think it is...has Reid been there since he was 21 or 22? And If that means Morgan's been there only two years or one year longer than Reid based on what he tells Emily in the episodes " to hell...and back" about being there almost 7 years?...and ideally wished the writers of criminal minds would show the Introdunction of Reid to hotch and Morgan by Gideon.
