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 had little cause to be at the library, typically, but right now he was looking for a book - a very specific book, one he'd been told had been donated in error. An old book. One that had some etchings that looked an awful lot like Robin, and Robin always liked to be aware of how he and his brethren were portrayed in historical records.

He looked through the stacks, and eventually found an empty spot where the book would be, according to the card catalog. So he looked around at the patrons nearby, settling on a large stack of books in front of a tall, thin man pouring through one of them. Ignoring the man, Robin began to pick up the books one by one and check the titles.

"Yes," Robin said in answer to his first question, but proceeded to continue examining the books. "And if it's not here, then there's no bother to you, is there."

Robin reached the last book and sighed.

He watched the man for a second and then said, "Since you've probably read half the books here already, I don't suppose you've seen a medical treatise from the nineteenth century about natural immunities to poison?"

Robin looked him up and down. "You look like a man who knows his way around a library," he said. "Well, okay. The author's name is Lucien Fairchild. And somewhere in the first chapter there is a drawing of someone who looks an awful lot like me."

"Do you have a name, pretty American stranger?" Robin asked him as he plucked up some of the books as well, figuring he may as well help.

The blush combined with the formal introduction only made Robin smile. "Well," he said, "I'm Robin. It's a pleasure, doctor." He slid one of the books onto the shelf they approached, taking only a second to read the spines and put it into the right place.

"Sort of," said Robin. "What about you? That was quite a pile of books you had there."

"Well, at the speed you were going you could probably be in and out in no time," Robin said. "The phantom of the bookstore."

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."
