And it feels like
Heaven’s so far away
And it stings
Yeah, it stings now
The world is so cold

Hotch walks slowly into the interrogation room. Morgan is sitting there, tired, like he hasn’t slept in days. They don’t greet, he just nods his head in salutation and Morgan looks away, frustrated.
It feels like years before, when he found Morgan in another interrogation room. But this time it’s different, the secret hidden in Morgan’s eyes is different. This time, Morgan doesn’t want to be rescued.
He can’t be rescued. Not now.
"They have your prints on the crime scene." Morgan doesn’t answer "This doesn’t look good for you, Derek. Let me help you, tell me what happened."
Morgan directs him an annoyed look. Hotch feels like pleading but can’t do that, he’s here as an FBI agent - even if his friendship with Morgan is making it so hard.
"Talk to me. Tell me what happened. Were you there?"
"I want to make a deal." Morgan finally says, taking Hotch by surprise.
"Ok." he murmus, slowly nodding "What do you want?"
"Not for me." Morgan rushes to say, interrupting him. Hotch is trying really hard to read him.
"Who else was there with you?" it’s barely above a whisper.
"I want immunity. For Spencer and David."
Hotch sucks in a breath, going pale as soon as he hears the names.
"You know who I’m talking about." Morgan replies, frustrated. Hotch shakes his head and looks towards the glass sharing a secret look with the agents on the other side. Morgan grunts because Hotch is looking at his own reflection, he can’t see them through the glass wall.
"Spencer and David." he repeats "Reid and Rossi?" and his voice breaks at the last syllable. Morgan panics because he knows Hotch and he knows what that means.
"What happened?" he begs to know.
"Reid is in the hospital. Since 2012. And Rossi… he died eight months ago."
Silence makes the real conversations between friends. Not the saying, but the never needing to say that counts.

He doesn’t hear Derek, Rossi, and Prentiss coming into the room to see their once-composed boss nothing more than an animal killing its prey. It doesn’t seem to faze David, but Emily looks stunned. Derek doesn’t even seem to care, running over to Aaron and literally grabbing him; he’s pulling his friend off of a dead man, and that’s when the animal retreats. (x)
I have decided to stick with love. Hate is too great a burden to bear. -Martin Luther King, Jr.
Happy birthday Ana! You’re a wonderful person and deserve all the love, and to show you my love I have this little present for you ♥
I heard you say you needed me now
What’s the problem? I can’t see
You destroyed me, I won’t fall apart again
I’m not falling apart
When heavens divide, time will come to softly lay me down

All our rage begs a stage
It’s a waste of time though
AU where Rossi becomes an UnSub
"Don’t be so mad Aaron. I was only having some fun while you weren’t looking."
"Where are they?! I want my agents back, NOW."
"Well, to be completely accurate, Ashley and Jordan are not your agents, not anymore. And Emily…”
"No Rossi, they are my agents. All of them. The moment you laid a finger on them, they’ve become my responsability all over again. So you tell me NOW where they are or this won’t end well for you. I swear.”
"You swear? And that’s supposed to scare me? Jesus, Aaron, bring JJ back here, she’s scarier than you when you swear you’ll make my life hell. You swear to what? God? Jack? Don’t make me laugh."
"What do you want Rossi? What?! Why them?!"
"You don’t want those answers, believe me. But go, tell Reid to put a bit more effort on that geographic profile. Tell Morgan he should’ve killed me when he got the chance. Tell Garcia she’s next."
"You touch Garcia and you’re dead, that much I can assure you."
"Can you? You couldn’t protect the others. What makes you think you can protect her?"
"I’m going to find them. And I’m going to protect Garcia."
"And I swear I’m going to make you pay for all of this.”
