Aaand it's time for another fanfic recs update. :)

Criminal Minds

-What Are You Thinking?, by blythechild. NC-17 (Reid/Prentiss, some Hotchner/Prentiss). Recommended by Bea.
Author's summary: Emily Prentiss has a variety of personal fantasies. She considers them harmless and convenient in light of her career and general disappointment with real relationships. She's not looking for complications in her life. But a work indiscretion blurs the lines for her and leads to far more issues than she could have anticipated. All of a sudden, her fantasy life seems less harmless and more like a trap she's set for herself.

Bea's comments: This fic is set in the same universe as 'The Force Awakens' but several years before the events of that film (i.e. post 'Return of the Jedi'). Also, this fic is both hilarious and incredibly adorable. :)
