Hello all, and welcome to the first #HotchReidParty.

Since it's the first, we're not sure how this is going to work, how many people will show up, how long it will keep going, etc. so please bear with us. If you have any suggestions, we'd love to hear them. We like the idea of H/R fans coming together in one place to meet and catch up and squee, so we hope this could be a regular thing. And we hope you feel the same way!

Ground rules: be nice. That's really the big, main one here. You can talk about pretty much anything, have discussions and disagreements, but be nice and respectful. This is a Hotch/Reid community and a Hotch/Reid party, so many or most people here will ship H/R. That said, we are open to anyone who likes Hotch and/or Reid, even people who don't ship it. In return, all we expect is the same courtesy. (Of course this goes for other arguments too: go ahead and talk about whether Reid looks better with short or long hair, but if things get out of hand, just agree he looks gorgeous no matter what, OK?)

Since we figured it might get quiet or awkward if we didn't kick things off somehow, we came up with some discussion topics. One related to Hotch/Reid and one more general getting-to-know-you thing. This week's topics:

- H/R: 'Gifts', for example what is the best gift Reid has ever gotten from anyone? What's Hotch's all-time favorite Christmas gift? How about least favorite? What kind of presents do they like to give/get? What would they get each other? Was it maybe a slightly too personal Secret Santa gift that got them together? Does Reid freak out about the first present he gets Jack after he and Hotch become a couple? And, of course, we can't forget those gifts that are, shall we say, hard to buy and impossible to wrap ;)

- Random: Share something that always makes you smile. Could be anything; a video, a pic, a fic, a site, a song,...Give us a smile.

Have fun!

Hey everyone!

After this week's episode of Criminal Minds, the show will be on a break for a while. So [livejournal.com profile] lwhit and I figured we'd fill the void by throwing (weekly? week-long?) parties, starting on Wednesday December 14. We don't know many other Hotch/Reid fans, so we thought we'd try to see how many we could get in one place. We'll be 'advertising' on tumblr, twitter and instagram ourselves, but definitely feel free to spread the word far and wide. #HotchReidParty

If you want to reach either of us with suggestions, problems, concerns, or just some H/R-related squee, you can comment on this thread or send us a message on LJ. Or if you prefer another platform, I'm [livejournal.com profile] piepeloe here and everywhere else, my friend [livejournal.com profile] lwhit is roxierockefella on tumblr, @ScholaFromAbove on twitter, and hotchgreggirl on instagram.

Hope to see you all soon!

Hello everyone,

I've been searching for a serie of fics lately and I'm not sure where to find it anymore. Obviously, it's an Hotch/Reid fic. One thing that's particular about it is that Rossi is Reid's adoptive father.

So help? Thank you!

Since Christmas is upon us I thought I would take request to write Hotch/Reid fics for anyone who ask. Any fic I write will be a one shot since I'm already writing  two other chapters fics and planning to start a third soon. You can request anything, as long as it needs to be one chapter long. Any rating and genre. So complete and utter fluff, which is what I'm writing for [livejournal.com profile] cmali or tear your heart out angst. Whatever you want. I'll start writing them this week(or next week), and hopefully have them all done by Christmas.

Stories to be Written:
[livejournal.com profile] cmali - Angsty, Spencer is Jack's second dad.
[livejournal.com profile] iheartdraco11  - Reid mpeg, Haley threatens to take away Jack
[livejournal.com profile] shaylen12  - Hotch and Jack take care of a sick Reid, established relationship
[livejournal.com profile] rambleinblue  - Jealous Jack
[livejournal.com profile] rambleinblue - "AU. Spencer Reid is sent to prison and discovers the only way to stay safe from other prisoners and guards alike is to buy protection from his cell mate, Aaron Hotchner, with something other than money..."
[livejournal.com profile] emzbuckley  - Minimal Loss tag, Hotch takes the place of Prentiss established relationship

After missing lots and lots of Criminal Minds episodes I'm finally catching up. And I was wondering if they're was any hotch/reid fics based around the episode 100 (that terrible tear jerker *snif snif*). Anything at all I would appreciate. Thank you very much! :)

The IKYdU staff (unaffiliated with the I Knew You'd Understand LJ Community) is hosting a chat to celebrate the season premier tonight from 8PM EST to 11PM EST.  We are a Hotch/Reid Universe that celebrates the relationship that WE all know exists.  Check out the IKYdU BLOG for details!!!

 I need to apologize to nebula and slash_girl for not paying attention to the forum post I made earlier.  IKY'dU is a H/R group completely seperate from their cm_hotch_reid I Knew You'd Understand fantastical community here on Live Journal.  I meant no disrespect in posting the forum announcement the way I did.  They were wonderful enough to invite us to advertise in their amazing community and I took advantage of it by not being respectful and clear in my post.  I do apologize, ladies.  The Forum is not an affiliate, though the cm_hotch_reid and Criminal Minds Slash is accessible on our blog.  Thank you for all your love, ladies, and I hope you will forgive my shortcomings.  ~Ali.

So, I've read a lot of Hotch/Reid fanfic, as I'm sure we all have., and there's something fairly common I've noticed. In almost all of the established relationship fic (at least before season 4) seem to have Halley cheating on Hotch. At first, I thought it had really happened since it was so damn common. So I did Googling thinking I had missed something. Now, was this all just a coincident or planned or something?

Again, thank you to your staff on this site for allowing us to be a part of their universe.  You guys rock!!

Consider this a personal invitation to join the IKY'dU Staff in the chat we are hosting tonight to celebrate and discuss the Season 5 Finale.  The rules and details of the chat are posted on the blog, and the icon is ready to be clicked.  Hope to see all our die-hard Hotch/Reid shippers there!! Respectfully, the IKY'dU Staff.

 I hope you guys got a chance to check out TG's chat last night on criminalmindsfanaticblog.  He was fantastic to answer the questions in detail.  I hope its okay to post this? Please delete if not.  Our blog has a few excerpts, but transcripts were not allowed so we made note of our fave things.  Next week is Joe Mantegna if you want to check it out!!

As you guys know, [livejournal.com profile] daylyn  has provided an awesome ficlet of schmoopy H/R *points below* which was born out of my attempts to convince people that Criminal Minds and Sherlock Holmes crossover is meant to be. Given that in the first CM novel Hotch flirted bonding with Reid over Holmes, it didn't take much to plea my case. Mission accomplished and now I've got a few more H/R friends to squee with over tiny H/R goodness from the books. So I thought I'd share the love and provide you some excerpts from the novels.

I posted the links and details @ my journal, feel free to stop by and share your thoughts. I have no intention to infringe on the book/author rights. It's purely for fun and if you find the books interesting enough, go seek them out.

Have a great Sunday!

So after all the Reid and Hotch hate in [livejournal.com profile] criminalxminds  yesterday, I'm looking for some of your small favorite moments of Reid or Hotch love.  I don't mean the big ones (like Reid solving the code that is usually run by computers or the whole "L.D.S.K" scene),  but the small touches that make you go "awwww".   To start us off, here are a couple from me:

1.  The scene where he rescues the little boy and takes him out of the house in "The Instincts".  It totally destroys the "Reid Effect" as the boy is totally comfortable with Reid, but canon aside, it always makes me smile.

2.  Reid's comment to the team about "Can one of you pretend you're going to see me again", right before he goes to the train in "Derailed".

3.  Reid's kindness to the unsub as he gives her the dolls back in "The Uncanny Valley".  He's so gentle with her.

1.  He reactions to the abused wife in "The Crossing".  I also love that he doesn't flinch when the DA goes off about men believing women are "victims".

2.  Hotch's reactions and talking to the prostitute at the end of "Pleasure is My Business".

3.  How gentle Hotch is with the FBI lead after the SUV explodes at the beginning of "Mayhem".

So, what about yours?

PS -- mods, can we have a "discussion" tag added?

Because I clearly suffer from a bad case of Fandom OCD, I've been thinking about a couple of Hotch/Reid scenes and stuff I've noticed while re-watching some older episodes, and I'm curious to know what you think about them:

- The pilot. Did you notice how many times Reid turns around to look at Hotch before getting on the jet?! And how he waits for him on the plane ladder? OMFG they're so obvious.

- What do you think Reid could have possibly answered if he'd been there, too, when Hotch asked the team to list his biggest, um, flaws in "Revelations"?

- Maybe it's just the shipper in me, but isn't Hotch the one who's always translating Reid-ese into English? (i.e. in "Compulsion", when he suggests Reid talks to the students because they're his age but Reid ends up rambling about FBI acronyms instead.)

- I love it when, at the end of "Damaged", Reid says - in reference to his and Hotch's 'trip' to see Hardwick - it was 'ultimately uneventful'. Because, in my twisted, slashy mind, it registers as something like 'I'm not telling you because our boss almost got us killed but I need to protect my love.'

- Hotch seems slightly obsessed with using Reid. *g* In "Revelations" (or was it "The Big Game"?), when he says to Gideon that he feels like he only ever uses Reid for his intelligence/knowledge but teaches him nothing. And then, in "Elephant's Memory", when he replies to Reid's hotashell awesome 'Are you punishing me?!' line by saying he is just using him.

Have a nice day, everyone!
