Oh, the Weather Outside Is Frightful

Prompt 67: Snow

Author: Fireness

Beta: None

Characters (Pairings): Morgan, Emily, Reid (none)

Rating: FRC

Warning(s): None?  Not even any slash!  *Cries*

Spoilers: None

Summary: “Seriously, man, what’s with the outfit?”

Word Count: 434

Author’s Notes: It snowed the other night.  In Texas.  This state is officially bearable to live in once more.  Reid, on the other hand, is not a happy camper.

Disclaimer: I don’t own these characters.  What I would like to own?  A hamburger.  I’m starving.

 

“Oh look, Emily; it’s the abominable snowman.”

 

Emily glanced up in time to see a large, hulking figure coming toward them.  She laughed.  “It’s a nice look for you, Reid.  Makes you look like you weigh more than one hundred pounds.”

 

“Funny,” replied the walking pile of cotton and polyester.  “You two are just hilarious.”  Two hands appeared seemingly out of nowhere to begin unwrapping the scarf from around his neck.

 

Morgan shook his head.  “Seriously, man, what’s with the outfit?”

 

“In case you didn’t notice, it snowed last night.”

 

“So?  It’s supposed to get above fifty degrees today.”

 

“But in the meantime, it’s only thirty-five right now.”

 

“You really needed all this just to get from your apartment to your car and then from your car to here?”

 

“My car’s in the shop right now, remember?  I had to take the subway this morning.”

 

“That’s understandable,” Emily admitted, “but did you really need the ski goggles?”

 

“They kept the wind from hurting my eyes.”

 

“And the earmuffs?”  Morgan said.

 

“Keep my ears warm.”

 

“Well then, why the hat?”

 

“Keep me from losing too much heat through my head.”

 

“Because we all know how much hot air is stored up there,” Emily joked.

 

Morgan chuckled.  “But you have a hood on that giant winter coat of yours.”

 

“So?”

 

Morgan and Prentiss glanced at each other.  “Can’t really argue with that logic, can you?”  Emily said.

 

“Guess not.”  He surveyed the rest of the young man’s clothes, which were still being taken off, piece by piece.  “Okay, the scarf I can understand, and the huge-ass coat.  But did you need a sweater on under the coat?”

 

“In case I get cold indoors.”

 

“Uh huh.  All this stuff for your upper body, but what’s keeping your legs warm?”

 

“Thermal underwear.”

 

Emily laughed.  “As if you really had to ask.”

 

Morgan shook his head.  “I didn’t know they still made thermal underwear, let alone people bought it.”  He grinned at Reid.  “Gonna take those off in the middle of the office, too?”

 

“Wasn’t planning on it, no.”  He grabbed his coffee mug off his desk and started to head out.

 

“All those clothes and yet you didn’t have a pair of gloves?”

 

“My old ones gave out last year, and I haven’t had a chance to get some new ones yet.”  He rounded Morgan’s desk on his way to the break room.  “Besides, I knew there would be hot coffee waiting for me to warm my hands with, and also –”

 

“DYAHHHH, COLD!”

 

“I knew you’d make fun of me, so I needed a plan of retribution.”

Hmmmm, as much as I like to see them slashed, I can understand how other people don't. Still, I'm glad you like it.

I love slash. It's just nice to see them in other situations as it adds to their dimension and it gives them a fuller life to explore in slash. I can see Morgan presenting Reid with new gloves in self-defense with resulting slashiness occurring.

Heh, you're welcome! It's always great when Reid comes out victorious, especially against Morgan. =)

Heehee, the end was the only reason I wrote the fic in teh first place. XD

Also, your icon makes me smirk, even though I'm not much of a Hotch fan myself. ^-^
