Prompt 17: Brown (Reid/Morgan)

 

“Did you find what’s blocking the drain yet?”  Reid asked, peering over his lover’s shoulder.

 

“Yeah, as a matter of fact, I did.  Here.”  Morgan held out a handful of brown sogginess.

 

The younger man pulled back in disgust.  “Ugh, is that a dead rat?”

 

“Nope.  From what I can tell, it’s a giant pile of hair.”

 

“Whose?”

 

Morgan looked at him.  “You’re joking, right?”

 

“I’m sure if I’m clever enough I can find a way to make you share the blame.”  He grinned.  “After all, I wasn’t the one who nearly ripped out a chunk of my own hair the last time I blew you in the shower.”

 

“Completely irrelevant, I’m sure.”

 

“My scalp was sore for days.”

 

“Okay, so maybe I tugged a little too hard, but I’m positive I’m not the reason you shed like a frickin’ sheep dog.  You’re worse than Clooney.”

 

“Actually, the average male loses about eighty hairs every day.”

 

Morgan paused long enough to give his lover an incredulous look.  “At that rate, shouldn’t you be as bald as me?  Shouldn’t everyone, for that matter?”

 

Reid’s face adopted the enthusiastic expression it usually got when he was about to recite some obscurely random fact.  Morgan mentally braced himself.  “Statistically speaking, humans have about 100,000 hairs on their heads, though redheads generally have less, while blondes tend to have more.  The lifespan of hair is about two to seven years, and annual growth is about twelve centi-”

 

“Spencer?”

 

“Yeah?”

 

“Shut up.”

 

“Or what?”  He smirked.  “You’ll spank me?”

 

“Don’t think I won’t.”

 

 “You have yet to follow up on that particular threat,” Reid noted.

 

“Knowing you, you’d probably like it too much.”

 

“No. No.  Anything but a spanking.  Please.  I’ll be good, I promise,” he intoned.  “Happy?”

 

Morgan laughed.  “Watch your mouth, boy, or I’ll have you on your knees in that shower so fast, not only will your head spin, but I’ll do more’n just tug on those mutinous locks o’ yours.”

 

“Promises, promises.”

Gah, I'm usually a strict Reid/Hotch fan, but this was utterly brilliant. You really captured the banter they have on the show, and I love the random hair facts from Reid. I kept snickering the whole time I was reading it, because it was just so very in-character and believable. I could see/hear these two having this discussion.

This may have been my favorite part:
Morgan looked at him. “You’re joking, right?”
“I’m sure if I’m clever enough I can find a way to make you share the blame.”

Well, I'm glad you decided to give M/R a chance. ^-^ To be perfectly honest, I don't like to slash Hotch with anyone....he just doesn't make a very believeable gay character to my mind....but to each his/her own, I suppose. :D

Okay, this is, I think, my absolute favorite funny fic of yours. Morgan and Reid are just so... Morgan and Reid. I snippet:

Morgan looked at him. “You’re joking, right?”

That is so Morgan that I can see his face as he says it. And Reid is so sooperly Reid here, and so adorable at it, that it's just frickin' ridiculous -- and I mean that in the most squeeful way.

In short, OMGSOCUTEILOVE. :)

What's funny is I didn't even like the idea when it was first presented to me, but it really worked out well.
