Doctor Who/Criminal Minds Fic - The Best Team Bonding Ever (5/5)  
Title: The Best Team Bonding Ever
Author: Ragna (scandalbaby)
Rating: PG
Fandoms: Doctor Who/Criminal Minds.
Characters: Garcia, Prentiss, Eleven, Morgan, Reid, Rory, Amy, and River. Rory/Amy and Eleven/River are mentioned.
Disclaimer: I don't own any of the characters. I wish I did, but I don't.
Spoilers: Set after the 2011 Christmas episode of Doctor Who (so 2013, if I reckon correctly by the ending), and that translates into an AU S9 for Criminal Minds. All you need to know is Prentiss has been back for a long while.
Warnings: None
Summary: He was bound and determined to prove Morgan wrong, and if that meant most of the BAU had to have an adventure then they'd have the adventure of a lifetime.
Authors Notes: So I changed my mind and decided five parts was enough, and so the story is finished. Hope you guys enjoyed it!

“Well? How was it?” Garcia asked as Prentiss came back in two hours later. She looked tense, but Reid and Morgan were oblivious, talking to Amy, Rory and River about the black hole.

“She was more upset about the delivery process than I imagined, but I did detect a small smile on her face when I was placed in her arms,” she said. “My father looked happier, though. She really just looked…relieved. Whether it was relief that I was okay or relief it was over, I couldn’t tell. I wasn’t able to get that close.”

“Oh, sweetie,” Garcia said, giving her a hug. Prentiss hugged her back. “At least you know now.”

“Yeah. That’s good for something.”

“Well, Emily, do you have someplace else you would like to go?”

She paused. “Garcia said when she was a teenager you wanted to take her to a Shakespearean play in Shakespeare’s time. Is that still an option?”

“Of course! I just have to time it differently from when I took Martha.”

“Is it true Martha is his Dark Lady?” Garcia asked with a grin.

The Doctor nodded. “Yes. Yes, it is. He was composing one of his more famous sonnets directly to her after we saved his life. I think we may forgo the personal visit with good old William when we go. It would be pushing my luck to run into him twice.”

“As long as we do Woodstock first,” Derek piped up from his conversation, showing that maybe they weren’t as oblivious as they thought.

“Personally, neither of those trips sound appealing to me,’ Reid said. “I don’t appreciate music from that era and I find Shakespeare to be rather…boring.”

“Well, genius, you already got your black hole,” Morgan said. “You could always stay aboard the TARDIS and explore.”

“He could,” the Doctor said. “Or he and I could work the case you two have.”

“I’m sure you’ll have brilliant insights to share,” Reid said with a smile.

“Why don’t I drop Morgan off at Woodstock, along with whoever wants to go with him, and then the rest of you can see the play while Dr. Reid and I work?” the Doctor suggested.

“Works for me,” Morgan said, and the others nodded.

“I’d like to go to Woodstock,” Rory said.

“Shakespeare,” Amy replied, and Garcia nodded. “So I guess it’s the girls going to the play and the boys going to the concert.”

“Guess so,” Garcia said.

“Woodstock first,” the Doctor said, flipping levers and pressing buttons on the console. “Be back here in, oh, six hours, all right?” he told the two men. Rory gave Amy a quick kiss and then they headed out the door.

“And no hallucinatory drugs!” Amy called after them. She dimly heard Rory say something back before the doors shut. “Any particular play you want to see?” she asked Prentiss.

“Much Ado About Nothing,” Prentiss replied. “That’s always been my favorite. I love Beatrice. She may be one of my favorite fictional characters ever.”

“I’ll take you to opening night,” the Doctor said with a grin. He did some more at the control panel and then there was a lurch. “We’ll be back to pick up you ladies in a few hours.” He watched as Prentiss, Garcia and Amy excitedly filed off the TARDIS before looking at River. “Aren’t you going to join them?”

“Actually, the chance to work with Dr. Reid has been on my wish list for quite some time,” she said with a smile. “If it’s all right with the two of you, I’d like to help with the case.”

“There isn’t much need for an archaeologist,” Reid said with a slight frown.

“And there isn’t much need for a time traveling alien, but I don’t see you turning down his help,” River said, patting Reid’s cheek. “Trust me, I’m smarter than I look. Come on, gentlemen. Let’s get to the library and get cracking.” And with that she headed down the hallway to the rest of the TARDIS, Reid and a grinning Doctor in her wake.

They had a breakthrough four hours later, and at that point it was time to collect the women. The Doctor landed and Amy, Prentiss and Garcia came back on board, their faces ecstatic and their commentary fast paced and excited. Reid pulled Prentiss aside and went over the hypothesis that he and the Doctor and River had come up with, and Prentiss added her two cents and soon they were consumed with work again. Garcia kept Amy company until it was time to pick up the men, and then Morgan and Rory rejoined them, huge smiles on their faces.

“I suppose it’s time to take all of you back now,” the Doctor said, looking at his temporary companions. “I take it you all enjoyed yourselves?”

“Very much,” Reid said, a wide grin on his face. “I honestly think this will go down as the best day of my life.”

“Don’t be too sure about that, Dr. Reid,” the Doctor said with a smile.

“I’ll admit, you’ve thoroughly convinced me,” Morgan said with a smaller grin on his face. “Thank you for taking me along.”

“Me too,” Prentiss said. “I had a blast, plus I got a new bathing suit to boot.”

Garcia went up and hugged the Doctor. “You don’t owe me an adventure anymore. We’re even now.”

He hugged her back. “Am I still allowed to pop in unexpectedly?” he asked her quietly.

“Of course!” she said as she pulled away.

“That goes for me too,” Prentiss said.

“And me,” Morgan replied.

“Me too,” Reid said.

“Very well. Penelope, Emily, let me take you back first.” Garcia and Prentiss hugged the Pond family, and then Emily went up and hugged the Doctor right before he landed them. The door opened and they walked out, back into the parking lot. When the door was shut he began piloting them again, and after another lurch he moved away from the console. “It was very nice to meet both of you,” he said to Reid and Morgan, offering each of them his hand, which they both shook eagerly.

“Well, see you later, Doctor,” Morgan said as he headed out.

Reid followed, but hung out by the door for a moment. “Doctor?” he asked.

“Yes, Dr. Reid?”

Reid gave him a wide grin. “I hope next time we can take the rest of the team.”

The Doctor chuckled. “We’ll see, Spencer.”

“Well, bye for now,” Reid said, giving a wave before he left.

The door shut behind him, and the Doctor turned to his family. “Well, now. Amy, what do you want to do next before we send River back to Stormcage?”

“I think I just want to enjoy a relaxing dinner with my family,” she said with a smile. “It’s been a pretty eventful day.”

“Yes. Yes, it has,” he said, going back to the controls. “Next stop, Paris, for real French cuisine!” And then he was messing with the controls and they were off to yet another adventure, glad for the new friends they had made that day.
