So far his leads and contacts hadn't gotten him any closer to finding Hotch, but Spencer wasn't ready to give up just yet. ...Besides, London was, honestly, a nice change of pace. He missed work, missed his team, but while none of his contacts had gotten him closer to Hotch, one had gotten him work as a criminal psychologist consultant for Scotland yard. The work wasn't steady, but it was something. That, paired with the generosity of a friend who had offered him his flat while he was teaching abroad meant money wasn't as tight as it could have been. For now, he could make this work.

He'd never been a big spender anyway, and so today, with no work on his plate, Spencer was at the library. Settled into a corner near the back, he sat with a stack of books on his left and another on his lap, reading at a slightly slower pace than he might when reading for a case. Though it was still remarkably quick. Spencer devoured text the way a starving man might devour a three course meal, savouring only the best bits and filling himself up swiftly with the rest in an attempt to fight off pangs of hunger.

(OTA: Find Spencer in the library, reading. Or, catch him outside once the library closes. :D Late tags and slow tags welcome.)

Robin took the book from him, and ran a finger over Lucien's name on the cover, smiling fondly. Then he flipped through the first chapter until he found a page with a caption reading 'subject 3, immune to arsenic with zero physical effects.' The drawing was Robin, standing, naked.

"Very good," he said to Spencer. "Yes, this is it."

Robin closed the book and slid it under his arm. "I should thank you. Want a drink?"

"... coffee, right," said Robin. "There's a cafe across the street, actually. You need to check out a stack or two first?"

"Ah," said Robin. "New in town? I can check them out for you if you like, you strike me as a law abiding fellow."

Plus he didn't have a card either, he'd just swiped one from a guy in the stacks. Hopefully the cost of this book that he had no intention of returning wouldn't be terribly high.

"I see," Robin said. "Well, I'll just go check this out, and you can put away the rest of your stack, hmm? I'll meet you outside on the steps."

For someone who spent much of his time among the supernatural, Robin was strangely intrigued by the lanky American. He just had this air of... innocence, or something, that was just so weird these days. Also when he got a look at him walking up - fuck, those clothes. Robin wanted to skip coffee and drag him to a tailor.

"Well then," said Robin, the book still tucked underneath the arm of his expensive suit. "Coffee. Just there." He pointed down the block.

"Yes, quite some time now, though I'm a bit of a world traveler." Robin glanced at him as they walked. "And what brings you here?"

Long story. Robin resisted the urge to snort. How long could it be? Robin had suits that were older than this guy.

But he only said, "It's a great city. I like it here, too. Stuck around longer than I have in most places."

They reached the cafe, and Robin held the door open for Spencer.

"I have," said Robin. "I like people, places, languages... the same old ones get boring after a while."

"I'm not sure I've been to every state in America," Robin said thoughtfully. He nearly added 'maybe before they were states' but caught himself just in time.

They reached the counter at the coffee shop and Robin gestured for Spencer to go ahead of him.

"I've got his as well," Robin said before Spencer could pay, and then ordered a triple Americano. He turned to Spencer. "So you're here temporarily, but not on vacation," he said. "Are you renting a flat or in a hotel?"

"You should see my place," Robin said with a smirk. "And how do you spend your nights?"

"Well," Robin said, "I own a nightclub. It's the best spot in all of London."
