mini ship manifesto : hotch/reid  
Not sure if anyone is still checking this journal, but I made some kind of Hotch/Reid manifesto a few months ago and forgot to post the link here. I know we H/R fans are few and not as vocal as some other shippers in the fandom, but I feel that with what the show has given us over the years, we're still strong. I for one still love and adore this pairing as much as I did the first day I started supporting them. Enjoy. :)

Why Hotch/Reid... you ask

Ooh, you! I miss you! (I need to watch the last season of Merlin.)

1. I hate you.

You're making me want to resume watching CM so hard it's not even funny. Even though, based on something I read in your manifesto, I'm afraid it might not be worth it... *sigh*

2. I most definitely don't hate you and I miss you (and Hotch/Reid), too. ♥

3. My life pretty much still revolves around Merlin (well, Merthur rather than Merlin, TBCH), so I really hope you'll find the time to watch the final season soon, so we can discuss it. ;D

4. Thanks for posting your manifesto to A03 and for the heads up about it! I had to skip everything in it referring to episodes past S06E06, but I saved a .pdf version of it for future enjoyment. ^^ And I would have wanted to save it anyway for the glorious .gifs and the spot-on analysis of our beautiful OTP.

No problem. I didn't think anyone's using LJ anymore, lol. I was wrong.

CM season 8 was a bit blah to me, except for Reid's story arc because it's been a while since he has a real story to work with, and I always enjoy MGG's acting. I won't spoil you, but I admit that the last few seasons make me miss the early seasons a lot. It's not horrible, but the dynamic in the team has changed somewhat, and it doesn't feel as familial as it used to back then. Hotch and Reid are still awesome though. I love them both together and apart. :)

I'll try to find time to watch Merlin. I was spoiled by the gifsets on tumblr on how the show ended, but I've been meaning to watch it anyway. I know I will shed a few tears. ;___;

I'm not really active on LJ anymore, but it's still my absolute favourite social network and I wish I could move all of my favourite Tumblr blogs and some people on Facebook to LJ! xD

I'm now mostly active on FB because I was in this awesome Italian Larry Stylinson group until the whole thing got a bit out of hand and it started to feel a little too close to a cult for me; so I left it and, one year ago, I created a Merthur/Brolin group (since I'd made friends with several Merthur fans in the Larry group) which has basically taken over my life. What I love about FB is that it makes it really easy to share media in a super quick way, but LJ will always be my first love and I miss it a lot.

Aw, I'm sorry Tumblr spoiled the end of Merlin for you (I just carefully avoided using a super spoilery icon JIC, LOL!), but I'm sure you'll still find it worth watching because both Colin and Bradley outdid themselves, especially in terms of 'line delivery'. ♥

LOL how funny you did that with LDSK and the Revelations.
When someone ask me why I kinda like/ship/write H/R I just say "you have to watch those epis"

From the very beginning, Hotch is always looking after Spencer, when they celebrate Reid's 24th b-day he's wondering where he'll be in tten years as if he cares to ahve him with him.

Fisher king 2, Hotch reaching for Reid's hand after the blast.

I don't remember the episode but there's one time when Garcia is trying out her new camera and takes a picture of the team, Hotch holds Reid's back and when he turns says sorry. But is always them. right?

This could go on and on and on. your manifesto is the whole ship on a nutshell. thank you
