I want to thank rivermoon1970 for making my lovely art! I love just looking at it. The banner speaks so much to how I feel Spencer is during this story.


You can call me Becca. I am a barista in my day to day life. My free time is spent writing fics as well as a few original stories. My current fandom obsession is Criminal Minds, James Bond, and Teen Wolf. You can follow me on my website or on Archive of Our Own under the name DarkJediQueen.


  1. I don’t know CM that well, but I’m intrigued.

  2. I don’t watch Criminal Minds, so I don’t know the background for this fix. That being said, I think this was a well written story. You made your premise clear, and followed though with an interesting tale. Good job!
