Life with a pretty boyAuthor:
gen, Reid, GideonSummary:
This is in the same universe as my Life as a pretty boy
fic, where Reid is an undercover CIA agent posing as a male supermodel. These are snippets from before and after Reid meets each member of the BAU.Read it at FFnetRead it in the AO3ETA:
Also, something I wrote in a FFnet review,
Gideon leaving while Reid was in Hankel's clutches shook him bad. There he is, being tortured by a religious nutjob yet knowing that, if he's clever enough, he can give Gideon enough clues to find him. And he and Gideon have known each other long enough that he is sure Gideon will understand the tips he drops in the video stream. But Gideon leaves. And in the end Reid has to save himself (and Tobias), and kill Charles in front of his son, all of this while being first drugged and then in withdrawal (which is really bad with Dilaudid). And eventually he discovers that Gideon abandoned him.
By the time the kidnapping happens Hotch knows Reid well enough that he would have been able to understand the clues too, had Gideon informed him about the situation. Which he didn't.
There, I just wrote a new bit for you :D.
Actually, something really bad happened to Reid and his mom when he was 17, which is why he almost drops profiling for counterintelligence. Which is why Gideon is trying to get him out of the CIA at this point (in the second to last part). He developed a dependency but he was always careful to keep it in private, never in the job. Hankel just made him realize how little control he truly had.
