Seventh and last in the "In Our Time Of Dying" Series. The BAU team get the shock of their lives as Agent Amanda Strauss (Kristen Bell), FBI Section Chief Director Erin Strauss's (Jayne Atkinson) daughter joins the BAU under her mother's orders. Amanda shows immediate interest in Derek Morgan (Shemar Moore) and Jennifer Jareau (A.J Cook) can't help the jealousy she feels over it. J.J becomes matchmaker as Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler) shows interest in Amanda, and she tries to get the two together so she can have Morgan all to herself. But will her plans work? Or will Morgan give in to temptation and take Amanda in on her interest? Will J.J find comfort in Reid over this? And will this intervene with catching the killer in their next case? Elsewhere, Emily Prentiss (Paget Brewster) and Aaron Hotchner (Thomas Gibson) face a 'bump' in their relationship and David Rossi (Joe Mantegna) gets a call from someone in his past. Who could it be? AND elsewhere, Penelope Garcia (Kirsten Vangsness) is teamed up with her boyfriend Kevin Lynch (Nicholas Brendon) once again for the case, and Kevin's got a bit of a surprise for her...what could THAT be?

All the answers will be given in this LAST installment of the "In Our Time Of Dying" Series. Set a couple of weeks after the last story.

A/N: HEYYYY GUYSS! After months of stories (six of them, last time I counted), we're finally at the end of this series! *CUE THE FIREWORKS* I just wanna thank everyone who's been following the series since the very beginning, and I hope that this ending absolutely and 100%ly satisfies you guys! I hope you guys like my choice of choosing actress Kristen Bell as my character of Amanda Strauss :D, Kristen is the bomb and well, she's hell funny. Finally, I won't delay it for much longer!

HERE IT IS! :D


"Agent Hotchner, can I have a word with you?" Hotchner looked up from his paperwork to see FBI Section Chief Director Erin Strauss at the door, smiling at him.

"Of course, Erin. Come in." Hotchner lay his pen down as Strauss sat down on the seat in front of him, sighing.

"I have reason to believe that you and Agent Prentiss have started a romance?" Strauss said sternly, her eyebrow raised. Hotchner cleared his throat.

"What uh, gave you that impression?"

"It's practically gossip around the entire Bureau, Agent Hotchner." Strauss said, a hint of a smile playing on her lips. Hotchner chuckled.

"Well, yes, I suppose the rumours are true." She sighed.

"You know that relationships within the office are prohibited?"

"I know, but what me and Emily share, is well...it's special." Hotchner said, smiling slightly. Strauss laughed.

"That's good to hear, in a way. But I have a fear that all these inter-office relationships might prevent you from doing your work right. I've been hearing that Derek Morgan and Jennifer Jareau are starting something as well?"

"Oh, uh, well..." Strauss help up her hand, silencing him. She sighed.

"I'm bringing someone into the office to join the team, keep you all in order."

"Really? That's not necessary-"

"I believe it is." Strauss said sternly. Hotchner sighed, but nodded.

"Very well then, who?"


Nightclub: 02:00AM

Baby let me love you down
There's so many ways to love you
Baby I can break you down
There's so many ways to love you
Got me like, oh my god I'm so in love
I found you finally, you make me want to say
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh,
Oh my gosh

Morgan danced with the J.J intensely holding his hands at her hips as she swayed to the music. He saw Reid, Garcia and Prentiss eyeing him from the corner of the bar, giving him the thumbs up but he ignored them, paying attention only to J.J and how she danced. Morgan laughed as J.J dropped low.

"I'm so drunk!" She yelled at him and this made Morgan laugh even more.

I fell in love with shawty when I seen her on the Dance floor
She was dancing sexy, pop, pop, popping, Dropping, dropping low
Never ever has a lady hit me on the first sight
This was something special; this was just like Dynamite
Honey got a booty like pow, pow, pow
Girl you know I'm loving your, loving your style
Check, check, check, check, check, checking you out like,
Ooh (oooh) she got it all
Sexy from her head to toes
and I want it all, it all, it all

Morgan went with J.J to the bar to get some water and Morgan saw a young woman sitting on a stool looking at him appreciatively, smiling.

"Can I buy you a drink?" She said, smiling. Morgan looked at her. She was beautiful. Blonde hair and gorgeous blue eyes, with a flower in her curled hair and a tight-fitting blue dress on with black heels. He looked from her, to J.J next to him, who looked like she was going to throw up, but who, in his eyes, still looked gorgeous in her hot red dress.

"Sorry, I think I gotta take Miss drunk here home!" He said over the music. She laughed, smiling.

"Fair enough!" She yelled. Her phone rang and she looked at it, seeing the caller ID.

"Oh, this seems important. I'll see you later!" She said, hopping of the stool.

"See you around!" Morgan yelled back. She nodded, smiling then walked through the crowd to the exit. Morgan helped J.J walk back to the others.

"Hotchner just called us, told us to get to the office straight away." Prentiss said.

"Right, If we can get this one sober." Just then, J.J hurled into a bucket of ice next to her, moaning. Morgan chuckled and him and the others helped her into the car.

"Poor J.J's a drunkey monkey!" Garcia said in a squeaky voice, pinching her cheeks.

"Shut up." She whispered, pushing her hair back as she hurled over the window onto the road. Reid laughed at her.

"Wish Hotchner and Rossi were here to see this." Prentiss said, wrinkling her nose, but laughing as J.J retched again.

"You done? I don't wanna drive the car and have your vomit flying into someone else's window." Morgan asked J.J, laughing.

"Ew!" Garcia and Prentiss said at the same time.

"Okay, done." Morgan started the car.

"No, wait!" J.J retched once more out of the window, then pulled her head back into the car and rolled the window up.

"I'm good." She whispered. Garcia handed her a tissue and she wiped her mouth as Morgan drove to the office.


"Hey Hotch, we got your call, what is it?" Morgan said, entering his office with Prentiss, Reid, Garcia, J.J and Rossi, who had joined them in the elevator.

"Guys, i'd like you to meet the newest member of our team, Agent Strauss."

"Agent Strauss? As in Erin Strauss?" Morgan said, confused.

"No, actually." They team spun around as they heard a voice at the doorway. Morgan saw FBI Section Chief Director Erin Strauss standing at the doorway, smiling.

"Team, this is Amanda Strauss, my daughter, and your newest member." Erin Strauss said, moving sideways. Morgan gasped as the girl from the bar stepped in the doorway, smiling.

"Aren't you the guy from the bar?" Amanda said, narrowing her eyes at him and smiling.

"Amanda, these are Agents Jennifer Jareau-" She shook J.J's hand.

"Emily Prentiss." She shook Prentiss's hand next.

"David Rossi, Penelope Garcia, Dr. Reid." She shook each of their hands and reached Morgan last.

"And Derek Morgan." She shook Morgan's hand, grinning.

"This should be fun."
