Criminal Minds, rare Garcia pairings, 6 recs

EDIT: Mods, can we add these two tags? :D
Ship: penelope garcia/aaron hotchner, ship: penelope garcia/david rossi

I'm VERY new to the Criminal Minds fandom, but I already know that I'm always DYING for more Garcia pairings in fics. While Garcia/Morgan never fails to make me smile, I also have a HUGE soft spot for the rarer pairings, so here's a few that got me hooked:


Fic Rec 1
Pairing: Garcia/Hotch
Fic Title: Her Still Point
Author: Karyl McLeod
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):K, none
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No; one-shot in a series

Why This Must Be Read:Karyl's Garcia/Hotch fics were what pulled me into this pairing. GOD I love the whole bubbly!girl paired up with the broody!older guy schtick, and I think she really captures how opposites really can attract. Plus, awkwardly unsure!Garcia is someone you just wanna cuddle. This fic is the first of 3 in a series, so go read them all!
Oh, and there's another fic by her called "Producing the Sublime" which is ALSO FREAKING EXCELLENT.


Fic Rec 2
Pairing: Garcia/Hotch
Fic Title: O Captain My Captain
Author:innerslytherin and severity_softly
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):NC-17, spoilers for "House on Fire", set during S4
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No; in 3 parts

Why This Must Be Read:This got me OBSESSED with Garcia/Hotch. Ahh the dynamic between them is pitch-perfect here: Garcia not taking "No" for an answer and Hotch begrudgingly going along with her madness while ending up enjoying himself anyway.
Oh and the sex. The sex is good too.


Fic Rec 3
Pairing: Garcia/Hotch
Fic Title: Together
Author: dannica webb
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):T, spoilers for major Hotch/Garcia canon moments
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No; one-shot

Why This Must Be Read:Short, sweet, and YAY for hearing from Hotch's POV. The first 2 recs were mainly Garcia POVs, so it was refreshing to read from the other side.
And MAN is it adorable.


Fic Rec 4
Pairing: Garcia/Hotch
Fic Title: Hijacked by Love
Author: ilovetvalot
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):M, none
Genre: Romance/Humor
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:Garcia seducing Hotch in a way that only she can pull off: with chick flicks. It's cute and fluffy, and guaranteed to make you smile.
If you're familiar with the author, you know that she has also probably written every CM pairing known to man, both het and slash. If you're not, go check her out! There will definitely be one pairing that you like, or will quickly love.


Fic Rec 5
Pairing: Garcia/Rossi
Fic Title: Cara Mia
Author:innerslytherin and severity_softly
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):PG-13, spoilers for "Penelope", AU after
Genre: Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:I didn't think much of this pairing until that one moment when Rossi called her "Kitten"...and then I started trolling for fic on them LOL.
And once again, this author duo came through for me. They usually write Rossi with Prentiss as a het pairing (ALSO AMAZING), so I was pleasantly surprised by how well this fic worked to bring Garcia and Rossi together. The flirting, the banter are all pitch-perfect, and Morgan's reactions = GOLD.


Fic Rec 6
Pairing: Garcia/Rossi
Fic Title: Saints, Sinners & Handholding
Author: Kuria Dalmatia
Link: Here
Rating/Warning(s):M, AU S5
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: Yes

Why This Must Be Read: Ooh, this is PERFECT. The slow progression of Garcia/Rossi from friendship to more is so well-done here, and I'm DYING to read where it goes from the last posted chapter 'cause EGADS.
