Criminal Minds AU: Morgan/Prentiss/Reid as con artists.
They answer to no one. For their own reasons, they’d been done listening to the demands of others for a long time. They don’t pretend they steal what they steal for the greater good; they do it because it just feels so damn good.
Knowing that they had each other was a plus too.
To the casual observer, Derek Morgan seems like he’s just the heavy of the three, but he’s so much more, knowing how to captivate a room with just a megawatt smile and keen conversational skills. His partners don’t ask why he only seems to go after those that have taken advantage of others.
While she also knows how to compartmentalize more than she probably should, Emily Prentiss uses her familial connections to be able to get into high class society’s biggest events. The hosts just don’t have to know that someone else with Emily’s face will be there scoring some precious jewels or stealing much too easily deserved money.
Finally, the trio has a genius in one Dr. Spencer Reid, who gave up a potential career in any academic field he wanted when his mother’s health became his number one financial priority in a world where teaching simply doesn’t pay enough. He uses his penchant for counting cards to fund her medical bills and resources for his arrangement while using his skilled hands to break into any vault he wants.
With their skills combined and their bond unbreakable in more ways than one may think, no one can stop them from taking whatever they want.
Happy Birthday, Jasper!
So basically Criminal Minds meets Leverage? I am SO there.
My first contribution to Poly Week! This is technically 15 minutes too late in this time zone to still be for day 1 (“why have drama when you can have sex?”, a prompt too perfect to pass up), but shhh, let’s pretend it’s not.

F- “So. Which one of us gets to shag Sara first?”
D- “I’m flexible. Though she is, too, apparently.”
O- “Hm. Our bed might fit four, y’know.”

- How many people know who you are ?
- Too many. But these are the only two that matter.
My current favorite ship. I love these guys.
“So? There’s two of us and one of you, and whenever we feel like it, we can be three. That’s love too, you know.” (S. Dora, Three)

The only ship that matters.
Things I think about this late at night
I wonder if the biggest reason we see m/f/m love triangles instead of ot3s is because of sexism and homophobia (which is also sexism, but that’s another post)? Not just the obvious “devil’s three way” gay-panic BS, but the notion that it’s inherently unmanly for a dude to share his lady and inherently slutty and unfeminine for a woman to want more than one man. Indeed, women in these situations are often portrayed as feeling guilty and dirty just for having interest in two men, much less acting on that.
Note that I’m not saying monogamy is inherently sexist. Just that the way pop culture treats love triangles nearly always comes down not to a reasonable mutual desire for exclusivity, but the question of which man gets to own a woman, and of forcing a woman to choose an owner, so she won’t risk threatening the manliness of her suitors.
To be cuckolded is to be emasculated, so a man voluntarily sharing his lady would be voluntarily giving up his manliness. If men do that, then the whole world will collapse ZOMG (or so Fox News would have us believe.)
And then there’s the even bigger blow to masculinity of a man admitting love for another man, so m/m/f triads are right fucking out. ;)
I wonder if that’s why I love these so much, then. They’re a giant fuck you to a world that wants men to act like arrogant control freaks, and women to be asexual outside of the man who owns her cunt. A m/m/f triad gives its woman the power to ask for more, and its men the freedom not to have to be in control of everything.
