Hotch: You did exceptional work, last couple of days.
JJ: Thank you. It’s nice to be noticed.

JJ: This may be a wild goose chase.
Hotch: But as someone I greatly respect suggested,
63 people may be in trouble, and I think that that’s worth the chase.

001. Because it’s never perfect.
002. Because JJ brings out Hotchner’s softer side.
003. Because he thought everyone wanted to be a profiler – and she’s sorry ; )
004. Because he thinks she would make a great profiler.
005. Because he knows how much she has to deal with.
006. Because he cares.
007. Because they truly respect each other.
008. Because we want them to be imperfect – together.
009. Because it’s hard for him to say no to her.
010. Because she’s someone he greatly respects.
011. Because he doesn’t take her for granted.
012. Because her coming back from maternity leave gave him a reason to smile.
013. Because she doesn’t know how to do this…and he gives her a reason to keep going.
014. Because ‘Thank you. It’s nice to be noticed.’

Because we love the way they look at each other.
Because when he needs her, she is always there for him.
Because season 7 will explore their relationship.
Because Hotch is the only one who knows about her sister.
Because Hotch took all the blame to protect JJ.
Because Hotch, JJ, Henry and Jack would make the perfect family.
Because the BAU is where it all began for Hotch and JJ.
Because Hotch has a ‘type’.
Because they are the “Mom” and “Dad” of the Team!
Because they are each other’s pillar (of support)! (by JJandHotchforever96)
Because we want them to be imperfect – together! (by RJHouse)
Because one day he’ll remember, and it won’t hurt… and she’ll make him happy. (by RJHouse)
Because good things seem to happen when JJ wears purple! (by smoothcriminal)
Because JJ and Hotch make it hard for our minds to stay out of the gutter! (by smoothcriminal)
Because one day he’ll be happy again and she’ll be the reason for it! (by smoothcriminal)
Because he just can’t say ‘no’ to her! (by smoothcriminal)
Because TG and AJ are the dynamic duo, they can’t be replaced with any other actor. (by Kiane)
Because they’re sexy and they know it! (by Kiane)
Because when all is said and done, JJ is the one Hotch will always turn to. (by Syd)
Because eye-sex never looked so good. (by Syd)

“JJ, what are we going to do without you
when you go on maternity leave?”
