Author has written 6 stories for Criminal Minds.

My name is Ashley (hear me roar).

UPDATE (Aug 7, 2009): Ok, so I just realized that my profile 'location' is showing United States... Er... This is wrong, I'm actually from Canada. I swear it said Canada before, did something change?? Anywho, I'm finally back! Yay, it's good to be back. I missed the fanfic world. The Person I've Become is up and roaring again, and I have another idea rolling around for another story, all good things in due time. My lovely muse has seemed to take a hiatus the same time I did, so I'll need her back for more brainstorming.

UPDATE (July 26,2009): GAH! I am so sorry I haven't been on here for, like, ever. I've been super busy and caught up in a bunch of crap and haven't had time to focus on any fanfics lately :( However, I am EXTREMELY pleased and touched that people are still reading my old fanfics, you guys rock! I promise I will start up again, especially to continue on my fic The Person I've Become. I'm really sorry that I kind of left you guys hanging, but I hope you all have patience with me and I hope to rock everyone's world with my words soon! Keep on writing fellow fanfic-ers!

-So I'm a 22 year old Canadian who works full time, but secretly wishes to be a famous writer someday.
I came to the fanfic world a little while ago, and find that it's a great way to keep my creative
juices flowing and to read other people's amazing creations. I love writing and reading, and I
LOVE Criminal Minds. And (
obviously) the lovely Doctor Reid. If I could, I would marry that geeky
little guy.-

Please send reviews, reviews are the fuel that keeps writers writing.

+Disclaimer: I do not own Criminal Minds, I am only borrowing the characters. Any new/original characters are mine.+

I'm super happy (and secretly proud) to announce that my fic 'Enter the Dark' won 3rd place for 'Best friendship Fic' for the 2008 CMFF awards!! Thanks to everyone who read/reviewed/added to faves/nominated/AND voted! And also a HUMONGOUS thanks to TheSundayBlues for the wonderful idea that inspired the fic. She rocks my socks with her fantastic plot bunnies.

Some of my fav. CM quotes:


Penelope Garcia
: You've got a problem. Deadbolt's the number one password crack-resistant software out there. You're gonna have to get inside this guy's head to get the password.
Derek Morgan: I thought I was calling the office of Supreme Genius.
Penelope Garcia: Well, gorgeous, you've been re-routed to the office of Too Frickin' Bad.

Reid: You should see what comes up when you type "death" into a search engine.
Morgan
: No wonder you can't find a date.

Hotchner: Well, I wouldn't have kept kicking you, I was afraid you didn't get my plan.
Reid
: I got your plan the minute you moved the hostages out of my line of fire.
Hotchner
: Well I hope I didn't hurt you too badly.
Reid
: Hotch, I was a twelve year old child prodigy in a Las Vegas public high school. You kick like a nine year old girl.

Reid: Are you hacking into the government HMO database? Is that legal?
Garcia
: Of course not. We'll go to prison and you'll become someone's bitch.
Reid
: Really?

Elle: Gideon, will you tell him that I don't need to go to the hospital?
Gideon
: Regulations are regulations. You all right?
Elle
: I'm fine, Dad.
Gideon
: Elle?
Elle
: Yeah?
Gideon
: Don't ever call me Dad again.
Gideon walks away

Elle
: I wonder how he'd feel about Mom?
Reid: Let me know when you're going to do that so I can, uh, run.

Morgan just saved Reid from a teenaged unsub who had a gun pointed at Reid's head
Dr. Spencer Reid: What happened?
As he pins the unsub to the ground
Derek Morgan: Him bringing us down here was way too much of a coincidence.
Dr. Spencer Reid: No, I got that. Did you have to tackle us both?
Derek Morgan: You're welcome Reid.

"Many people hear voices when no-one is there. Some of them are called mad and are shut up on rooms where they stare at the walls all day. Others are called writers and they do pretty much the same thing."
~Meg Chittenden

"The beautiful part of writing is that you don't have to get it right the first time, unlike, say, a brain surgeon."
~ Robert Cromier
