AN: Well, here's the ending to this. Well over a year late...
The team met on the jet. Emily scrambled aboard last, gobag in hand. She plopped into the seat next to JJ, and Reid passed her the travel mug.
"Thanks, Reid. You're a lifesaver." Emily said, taking a sip and sighing in contentment.
As the briefing ended, Emily was yawning uncontrollably.
"Maybe you should rest, Em." JJ said worriedly.
"Maybe..." Emily trailed off. Soon soft snores could be heard.
"Jeez, sounds like Princess needs some more beauty sleep." Morgan joked.
"Well, she drank a whole cup of coffee. Could she be sick?" JJ still looked worried.
"I think she'll be fine." Reid said.
JJ's head whipped around.
"What did you do?"
"Nothing. I'm just trying to help her keep her New Year's resolution."
"Get her to stop biting her nails." Reid said as he grabbed the small bottle of nail polish designed to taste absolutely horrific.
JJ looked at the bottle, laughed, and said
"Want some help?"
Morgan laughed wholeheartedly as Reid held Emily's hands up while JJ painted her nails. When they were done, Reid gently placed Emily's hands down and sat back down.
An hour later, Emily started to stir.
"Hey, Princess! Nice of you to join us."
"Shut it, Derek." Emily shot back. "How long was I out?"
"An hour, hour and a half."
"Really? I don't know why..." Emily started to bite her nail.
Emily's shout rang throughout the the small space.
JJ and Reid burst out laughing.
Emily glared at them.
"What did you two do?"
"You are going to keep your New Years resolution." JJ said.
"That is anti-nailbiting nail polish. It tastes awful and doesn't come off for days." Reid said with a smile.
"I hate the both of you." Emily grumbled, as Hotch and Rossi both chuckled.
Throughout the case, occasional shouts of
"EW!" "UGH!" "YUCK!" and "OH, COME ON!" echoed around the precinct.
However, eventually Emily Prentiss stopped biting her nails.
All because Spencer Reid took drastic action.
