For the Body Buried by the Interstate
Author: greatunironic
Artist: romanse1
Rating: PG-13
Pairing: None
Summary: He was someone they loved
Notes: The idea of this story came from batgurl88 by way of cmplotbunnyfarm. This thing was a huge labor of love for me, having been written in the midst the reformatting and eventual meltdown of my hard drive and losing the first draft of the story, and breaking my nose. Huge thanks to my beta, a_dreamwithin, for being as crazy as I was to try and finish it, and everyone else who I annoyed with my constant prattling. Kickass art from romanse1. Title from Iron & Wine’s Peace Beneath the City

Pairing: Hotch/Rossi
Summary: Futurefic—Shortly before Dave turns sixty, he is diagnosed with a grade III brain tumor. He and Aaron have to come to terms with what this means for their relationship. Eventually the team has to help Aaron say goodbye.
Notes: Heavy angst. Lots of medical detail. Character death. This fic would not exist without the extensive help, support, encouragement, and hand-holding from resolucidity, who served as our medical consultant throughout.

Rating: PG-13/FRT
Pairing: none (gen)
Summary: When Aaron Hotchner stepped into the interrogation room to interview one of the FBI’s most wanted unexpectedly apprehended earlier in the afternoon, he never thought the evening would end with bloodshed and rock references. Crossover with Supernatural.
Notes: Spoilers through Season 4 of Criminal Minds and through Season 4 of Supernatural. Title from the Led Zeppelin song “Ramble On.” Special thanks to ambrosia4all for the AWESOME beta, Wikipedia,, and for Supernatural transcripts. Furthermore, this fic owes a debt of inspiration to Kikkimax’s “Defect” and PaBurke’s “Hunters and Prey.”

Though Lovers Be Lost, Love Shall Not
Author: Montiese
Artist: twinsfan33
Rating: Mature
Pairing: Hotch/Prentiss, Gideon/Prentiss, JJ/Rossi
Summary: A part of Hotch never wanted the morning to come. So many lives would never be the same.
Notes: This story is AU, but the first few paragraphs give that away. The title comes from the Dylan Thomas poem, And Death Shall Have No Dominion. I used that poem to start their love affair, so I used it to end it as well. Endless thanks to my betas calleigh_j and innerslytherin, I couldn’t have done it without you. Extra special thanks to twinsfan33 for the amazing art and reminding me that people can come through in a crunch.
