DescriptionCriminal Minds, Season 1 finale: The first two potential suspects are named Harris and Giles. The team are told to 'save her' and that the 'youngest holds the key'. My first thought was of the Scoobies.

So let's change things up. In this, Harris and Giles are names specifically chosen to bring the attention of the FBI to the Scoobies. While Reid did receive a skeleton key, what the note meant was that Dawn, the Key, was needed to help solve the case, as the victim(s) are drugged slayers.

I would like at least one member of the BAU team to already have some knowledge of the supernatural, but not enough to be an expert or to personally know the Scoobies. Could be that Reid's childhood in Las Vegas introduced him to real magic as well as sleight of hand. Or maybe one of Gideon's old cases involved a demon. Or Elle is the niece of a previous Slayer. Or Garcia is a techno-pagan once trained by Janna Kalderash. Maybe one of Hotch's parents (whether that's the abusive one or the neglectful one is up to you) was part demon. However it happens, they still have a tough time convincing the rest of the team.

Timeline would be immediately after season 1 of "Criminal Minds", and some time post-Chosen for "Buffy the Vampire Slayer"

The first episode of Season 2 will, naturally, begin an AU, so you don't have to follow the canon events of the case. Length of the fic is up to you, though I would obviously prefer something longer than a drabble. Minimal character bashing preferred; if you don't like a character, just don't give them a large role in the story. Thanks!
