Hello, everyone!
I just wanted to let everyone know that there will not be a big bang at this point in time. If my life becomes less busy at some point, probably over the summer, I may run one then. Sorry for any inconvenience and I sincerely hope that everyone had enjoyed the previous big bangs hosted at this community.

Title: "Close our eyes, pretend to fly"
Author: that_1_incident
Beta: The magnificent but LJ-less Xtina
Word Count: ~16,500
Pairings: Derek Morgan/Penelope Garcia
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Semi-AU, the Boston Reaper, a fair amount of abyss-gazing, and a small guest appearance by Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs.
Author's Notes: My amazing artists were astral_angel and kymericl. This fic came about in part because every fandom needs a coffeehouse AU - if one already exists in this fandom that I don't know about, oh my God, hook me up.
Disclaimer: These characters don't belong to me; I use them respectfully but without permission. Title from Hanson's Penny & Me. Some elements taken from actual "Criminal Minds" episodes; notably "Empty Planet" (2x8), "Lo-Fi" (3x20), "Mayhem" (4x1), "Omnivore" (4x18), and "Nameless, Faceless" (5x1).
Summary: As the proprietress of Penny's - unquestionably the best coffeehouse in Quantico, Virginia - California transplant Penelope Garcia relishes her role as bright, carefree hostess while almost entirely divorcing herself from her past. When Supervisory Special Agent Derek Morgan walks into her life with his high-stress career in the FBI and his own personal tragedy in the rearview mirror, her barriers begin to break down amid Doctor Who posters, unsubs, macarons, and exploding ambulances. But opening up to Morgan - and, by extension, to his colleagues in the Behavioral Analysis Unit - is not without its difficulties, and only time will tell whether Penelope is truly up to the challenge.

Title: Arkham Minds
Author/Artist: Twisted-Slinky
Beta:  KimmiGrey
Word Count: ~24k
Pairings: Gen
Rating: T/PG-13
Warnings: Violence, Language
Author's Notes: This is set after my story For Laughs, but this can be read as a stand-alone if you wish. Its setting is after The Dark Knight, but with no references to The Dark Knight Rises. While it's a Nolan-verse crossover, it is also inspired by other Batman comic and cartoon storylines. For Criminal Minds, the story is set right after Gideon's departure and before Rossi's arrival (so, season 3, pre-episode 6 sometime).
Disclaimer: I do not own Criminal Minds or anything related to the Batman universe. I also do not own any quotes from Alice's Adventures In Wonderland.

Summary: What happens when the madmen are running the madhouse? Dr. Spencer Reid and Agent Aaron Hotcher find out when they return to Gotham to visit Arkham Asylum. Spencer's been at the Joker's mercy before, but after the asylum goes on lockdown with the agents trapped inside with the inmates, he finds that this particular madman might be his key to surviving. Criminal Minds/Batman (Dark Knight) crossover, sequel to For Laughs.

Title: Societal Norms

Artist: mella68
Pairings: Hotch/Reid
Rating: PG-13

Title: the lies we weave are oh so intricate
Author: bittereternity
Beta: My savior, Lynn. Thank you for reading this multiple times, but mostly for putting up with my severe disregard for deadlines and extreme flakiness.
Word Count: ~18,300
Pairings: Aaron Hotchner/Spencer Reid, minor Hotch/Haley, minor Reid/Maeve.
Rating: FRT
Warnings:Spoilers up to and including Zugzwang. Light dom/sub.
Author's Notes: slightly inspired by aris_writing'sDirected!verse. Although this story is set in an alternate universe where Dominant and submissives are the norm, it doesn't focus on the power dynamics of this 'verse, exploring instead a growing relationship between two people.
Disclaimer: Criminal Minds or any of its characters do not belong to me, I'm merely borrowing them to tell my story.
Summary: : In a world where everyone is a Dominant or a submissive, Aaron Hotchner meets Spencer Reid, a man who simply wants to be neither. In the process of getting to know him, he never expected to a. fall in love b. fall in love with a member of his own team and c. fall in love with a man so infuriatingly unwilling to reciprocate.
Story Link: Read it here!

I'm a little confused as to whether the art post is supposed to be a separate one, or if I'm supposed to incorporate it into this post, but I do know that my artist, mella68 has created some wonderful art for this fic which can be found here. Please let me know if I'm doing anything wrong so I can change it!
