Into the Blue

Rating: PG13/FRT to R/FRM (same as the show, with some language)
Character(s): Reid-centric teamfic; Reid+Elle friendship
Beta(s):fabrisse  and invaderk 
Genre: Friendship, with supernatural overtones
Warnings: pre-story death of a former character
anything with the team as a family (from antoinettemason on cm_exchange)
Reid is understandably befuddled when Elle Greenaway begins to make sudden appearances in his life. At first he thinks he's hallucinating, but then a case from the other side of the country catches his attention.…

A/N: I never meant for this to be a sort of supernatural style fic. I was inspired by the prompt listed above, the prompt about drunk Reid, and the prompt about an X-Files crossover…so voila!

The quotes in italics that separate each section are from Alexi Murdoch songs.  Also, each one of the cuts is, I guess you could say, a different chapter, so you can skip around if you like.

Disclaimer: I don't own anything.  Don't sue me, b/c you wouldn't get anywhere and we'd both be sad.

Musical Chairs

My contribution to the musical shuffle meme going around!

The Rules:

1. Pick a character,  fandom, pairing, friendship, whatever
2. Put your music program on shuffle/random and start playing songs
3. For each song, write something inspired by the song related to the theme you chose earlier.  You only have the song length.  No pre-planning or writing after the song's over.  No skipping songs, either.
4. Do 10 songs and post.  Make sure to include the song name/artist.
