Hi! Could I please request a Spencer Reid x Reader blurb? I saw this on another blog from a long time ago but, could you do “You did what with the banana?”
Sorry this sat in my inbox for so long! This was definitely a tricky prompt, but I'm happy with what I came up with. Hope you are, too!
“You did what with the banana?” Hotch’s voice cut through Spencer’s thoughts as he watched you through the blinds. You looked nervous, which made sense considering that you were the reason Spencer was in Hotch’s office, ready to be reprimanded.
Let it be known that despite current circumstances, Spencer Reid still loved you.
When you first started working at the BAU, you were welcomed with open arms. Whip smart and great in the field, you thrived in the role and the team accepted you almost immediately. But no one seemed to anticipate just how well you and Spencer would get along. Or how much the office prank wars would escalate when the two of you joined forces. Perhaps you and Spencer caused more trouble together than you did apart; you brought out that side in each other. Exhilarated laughs and shared looks across the bullpen, your mischievous smile the catalyst for the warmth behind Spencer’s ribcage. He loved you, but it was entirely your fault that Spencer was now trying to come up with an explanation for today’s incident that wouldn’t make the pragmatic unit chief let out one of his trademark exasperated sighs.
“Hotch, I need you to know that it was technically Y/N’s idea in the first place. I was simply demonstrating a fundamental lesson about physics and the coefficient of friction–”
“Reid.” Spencer shut his mouth as Hotch gently stopped him from going off on a tangent. He couldn’t tell if the action relieved him or frustrated him. Hotch took a beat before continuing.
“I’m sure you didn’t mean to cause any harm. But Anderson was not happy when he came into my office today. And I just want to get this sorted before it becomes any more of an issue. Make sense?” Hotch softly explained, stern exterior shielding the clear bias he had toward the younger agent. Toward anyone on his team. Spencer nodded. “Good. The banana?” He raised an eyebrow expectantly as Spencer began to ramble.
“Right! Okay, so essentially Garcia was complaining about Morgan beating her in Mario Kart, which isn’t a new topic of discussion. They have game nights every month and he always beats her. I’m not sure why she’s so surprised every time. Anyway, she mentioned that she lost the last round because Morgan had thrown a banana peel at her that had slowed her down just long enough for him to beat her.”
“Then, Y/N asked if a banana peel could actually wipe someone out like that in real life. So, you see, I was simply explaining the mechanics behind the action, and I grabbed a banana from the break room to demonstrate.”
“I think I know where this is headed.”
“Morgan missed the peel. Anderson wasn’t so lucky. I didn’t mean for anyone to get hurt, Hotch,” Spencer explained, cheeks reddened with embarrassment.
Hotch leaned back in his chair, almost speechless. Like he wanted to laugh at the ridiculousness of the situation, but he couldn’t let his Unit Chief mask slip.
Spencer glanced back toward the blinds in search of you, only snapping his attention forward as Hotch folded his hands across the desk and leaned in.
“You know, it’s been nice to see you come out of your shell over the last several months. And Y/L/N definitely plays a role in that.” Spencer flushed at Hotch’s words.
“That being said, the two of you seem determined to cause trouble whenever you’re together. I’ve let most of it slide, because it’s usually harmless, but now I’ve got an upset Anderson and likely some explaining to do to Strauss.” Spencer sunk a little in his seat.
“I’m sorry, Hotch. We didn’t mean for anyone to get hurt. Anderson was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.”
“Just…” He let out a sigh. Spencer winced. “Maybe tone down the pranks and such.”
Spencer nodded once before Hotch motioned to the door, effectively ending the conversation, and dismissing him. And so, with a Yes, sir! Spencer was exiting the office, feeling simultaneously guilty and relieved. As soon as he was back in the bullpen, his eyes instantly found yours. Your face twisted into a knowing grimace as he approached.
“You threw me under the bus, didn’t you?” Spencer chuckled at your assumption, knowing that it was unequivocally what had happened. He wrapped his arms around your waist.
“You’re just lucky I didn’t tell him you wanted someone to slip.”
“Hey! I was simply observing the mechanics behind the slipperiness of a banana peel. It’s not my fault that Anderson just happened to walk by at the exact time. Besides, Garcia was hoping that Morgan would be the one to slip,” you shrugged.
“I just want him to know what it’s like!” Penelope called out, after not-so-subtly eavesdropping from the opposite desk, not an ounce of malice in her words.
“To be fair…” you started, “it was really funny.” A disbelieving grin spread across Spencer’s face. He leaned his forehead against yours, incapable of being mad at you.
“God, what am I going to do with you?” He mumbled, face set in a firm scowl of mock annoyance. You smirked at him, reveling in this moment before replying.
“Use my unrivaled skills to get back at Morgan before he retaliates once he figures out the banana peel was meant for him?” Spencer barked out a laugh before looking you in the eyes, fondness in his gaze and amusement in his smile. It was in that moment that Spencer knew you were the one for him, and that Morgan had no clue what was coming. The two of you just needed to do a better job of sneaking around Hotch. Spencer pressed a quick kiss to your temple before walking out of the bullpen with you, hand in hand.
“You read my mind.”
