Note: I have indeed been watching CM - I'm a few episodes into season 3 - and it seems that even though this will not make any "top ten" list for me, I'm intrigued by fic...? *facepalm* I went searching for comms for the hell of it and read a bit of fic. Truly I was looking for Reid/Garcia fic, but after a slew of posts of Morgan/Reid, various femslash pairs, and Morgan/Garcia fics, I decided to try H/R. And damn it, the authors I found I really liked and now I'm hooked. Yeah, that's all. Move along and read now!

Respite

By Clarity Scifiroots

Disclaimers apply!

Fandom: Criminal Minds               Pairing: Aaron Hotchner / Spencer Reid

Rating: All

Spoilers: None, but set after season two

Summary: Prompt on slashthedrabble was “sore” – this is the result. =p (word count = 200)

 

---

Reid could list the various types of massage, gone into detail about methods, pressure points, and varying statistics about effectiveness. That might have happened in another setting or with someone else, but this is here in the privacy of Aaron Hotchner’s home, and it’s only the two of them.

 

A series of difficult cases revolving around families and children had worn down all of the team. With particularly heavy baggage in those areas, Reid had been near breaking point and for Hotch…

 

Well, Reid thinks as he smoothes his hands over Aaron’s shoulders, he shut down before he could break. The team had been granted a four day respite for what Garcia joked was “mental health maintenance.” As Reid applies pressure with his fingers and thumbs to Aaron’s tight shoulder and neck muscles, he thinks he agrees with the tech wiz.

 

It takes almost an hour for Reid to feel any loosening of muscles. He’s pleased when Aaron finally lets out a small sigh and leans back. He doesn’t stop the massage, but Reid does lean closer and graze Aaron’s ear with a kiss.

 

“Feeling better?”

 

“Getting there.” Aaron eases back farther, and Reid wraps his arms around his lover.

Love Reid taking care of Hotch because their jobs are extremely high stress.

They definitely both need comforting. With such a great immediate response here to this fic... well, it's very encouraging, I admit. And drabbles/ficlets are pretty easy to do.

Aw! That's so sweet! It's a little unusual to see, for me. I am used to seeing Aaron giving Spencer comfort of some sort. I liked this very much, though.

Hey, I'm glad to offer something a little different! I figure they're both perfect whumping victims, so the comfort has to go both ways. ^_~
