Title: The Girl who Swordfights
Author: Montiese
Category: AU/Friendship/Humor
Characters: Erin Strauss, David Rossi, Jason Gideon, Ursula Kent, Nora Bennett
Pairing: Rossi/Strauss
Rating: TEEN
Summary: “She's the Barnard Student Athlete of the Week. She's so pretty. I think I’ll marry her and our children will be heirs to my beer bong empire.”
Author’s Note: I saw this picture and story on Humans of New York and all I could think about was my OTP. This story really wrote itself.

Title: The Soul Taker
Author: Montiese
Category: Drama/Post-Episode
Characters: Erin Strauss, David Rossi, Carolyn Rossi
Rating: TEEN
Spoiler: From Childhood’s Hour
Summary: “One doesn’t decline to Death, Erin.”
Warning: A death takes place in this story as it does in the episode. There is also talk of suicide.
Author’s Note: I was minding my business, procrastinating finishing one fic by going on Tumblr when this OTP prompt came across my dash, Person A is the Reaper, living for centuries amongst humans. Person B meets him/her, likes them, starts a relationship, but person A can’t tell them who they are or what they do for a living. When one of person B’s closest friends has to die, person A feels the need to explain it to person B. The story develops from here. I almost instantly came up with this fic though my story is a bit different.

Title: I’ll Take Manhattan
Author: Montiese
Category: AU/Drama/Friendship/Humor/Romance
Characters: Erin Strauss, Jason Gideon, David Rossi, OMC, Nora Bennett, Ensemble
Pairing: Rossi/Strauss
Rating: TEEN
Warning: Use of recreational drugs in this story.
Summary: “That’s a sex dress.”
Author’s Note: You guys know that I never post WIPs unless I'm pretty close to the end or have the whole idea in my head. This story will be the exception for one reason, I want this to be 1,100th Criminal Minds fic. Some may say that’s cheating but the truth is that the beginning of this story stands alone as long as you make sure to look at it as an AU. Anyway, I wrote my first Criminal Minds fic in the kitchen at my job on July 28, 2008 and now five years later I'm here. Many ships, many friends, some drama, a shit-ton of different universes and even one major character death in my head, and I'm still going. Sometimes I worry each fic will be my last but I would find a way for that to be OK because I've created such worlds, and you guys have given so much love, and it’s been magic for me. Thank you.

Title: Battle Wounds
Author: Montiese
Category: Drama/Family/Romance
Characters: Aaron Hotchner, Beth Clemmons, Jack Hotchner
Pairing: Hotch/Beth
Rating: TEEN
Summary: “The four year anniversary is coming up.” She turned to look at him. “You can pretend you don’t know what I'm talking about but you do. We don’t have to talk about it.”
Author’s Note: This is #40 in the Starting Over series. It’s been over 5 months since I've written this ship and was glad to hear from them again. While I’m not thrilled with the storyline coming in episode 9x05, revisiting Haley and Foyet, I thought it would be really interesting if Hotch was having pains, problems, and not wanting to burden anyone else with the issue. I like the idea of focusing on his relationship with Beth and the future, not going back to the past.
