Chatter Post

Welcome to the Chatter Post!

Nothing is off topic here!

The Chatter Post is a good place to:

- Talk about PoI
- Talk about anything that is not PoI
- Link to something cool you saw on Tumblr
- Rec a fanwork or ask for recs
- Ask for help finding a fanwork
- Ask for a beta or for help with research

The spoiler policy for Person of Interest episodes on the chatter post is the same as the spoiler policy on the meme: if it has aired, it's fair game. (However, please use consideration for other fans when discussing other shows. It's probably okay to talk about Vader being Luke's father, but maybe don't be like "OMG Sherlock and Joan just got fake married in Vegas!" if that episode only aired yesterday.)

What is the chatter post not for?

- Contacting the mods. (Use the Mod Contact Post to do this.)
- The rules about kink-shaming and bashing still apply, and threads will be frozen/screened/deleted at the mods' discretion.

Link your episode reaction posts!

I basically marathoned S1 PoI as it was nearly over, so I didn't get to read a lot of S1 meta/squee/episode reactions. I would love to read some fannish thoughts! So, if you have posted episode reactions/etc on tumblr/LJ/DW, link it here!

Anyone got time for a quick beta? Around 3,000 words. (It would be fantastic if you've read any Lord D'Arcy, but I'd be grateful for any help.) Send me a message with your e-mail, and I'll respond with the story.

Catching up, though slowly. Okay, s2ep10, prosthetic arm guy---HOW is he driving a motorcycle? It's his right hand, correct? The right hand controls the throttle and front brake and he didn't even use it to pick up the stuff in the glass case!

Am I missing something?

That can't have been all there is...?

Looks like I went clean through the Finch/Reese tag on on AO3. What might I have missed that's elsewhere?

library layout and furnishings?

(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 06:08 pm (UTC)(link)
So I haven't seen all the episodes yet, and my sense of spatial relations is pretty weak anyway. I have real trouble visualizing how the library is laid out, and I don't know if the couch and bed that show up in fic all the time are on-screen canon, or just inferred. Which eps would give me the best info on this?

Signed, I need accurate visuals to write porn, for some reason.

thoughts on rewatching 1x02

(Anonymous) 2013-04-08 02:12 am (UTC)(link)
I was re-watching 1x02 last night and they haven't even brought in the earbuds yet... Reese is either holding a phone up to his ear in every scene where he talks to Finch, or he has a huge dorky bluetooth stuck in his ear. Gotta say, neither one makes him look cool or tough, or is practical for a fight scene.

There is SO MUCH cute stuff in this episode. Finch doing push-ups because Reese mentioned it! Finch's hilarious blonde nosy co-worker! Nathan bringing Finch awards and tiny bottles from the mini-bar! John getting taken out by a small girl with a small knife!

Also, this is probably the first time John tries to feed someone in order to make them feel better-- he orders Theresa Whittaker a hamburger from room service, without her even asking or mentioning that she's hungry. :3

Okay, so I'm working on a Finch/Reese genderswap (I have a problem where I want to turn everything I love into lesbians, and I really love Finch/Reese), and I figure that Harriet is a pretty good swap name for Harold, but I'm kind of stuck on what to call John? I could just go with Joan, but then I kinda feel like I'm stealing from Elementary. And I could use Jane, except I... already used that for a James Bond genderswap... so yeah. Name suggestions?

Rewatching s1e1 and Finch promises not to lie to John. Then later on he tells Reese that he built a back door an off switch into the system. Later on we discover that Nathan was the one who built the back door. Did Finch lie or did he also build an off switch? I'm been wondering all along can we really trust Finch? I can't think of a good reason why someone would have that many fake id's. then there was that episode where he called the serial killer an amateur.

Does anyone have a timeline of Reese's time in the army and recruitment into the CIA? I can't seem to sort it out.

Thanks in advance!

So, I was vaguely considering signing up for Not Prime Time, which is like Yuletide but for all the fandoms which have gotten slightly too big to be in Yuletide anymore (like Psych, The Big Bang Theory, White Collar, Leverage, etc.) but aren't huge megafandoms. And I was looking at their tag set of nominated fandoms & characters and I noticed that Person of Interest is on there. So, just FYI for anyone who might be interested, although I think there are less than 24 hours left to sign up...

The FAQ!

PoI RP accounts to follow?

(Anonymous) 2013-05-12 07:59 am (UTC)(link)
I am desperate to follow some PoI roleplay accounts. Dreamwidth-style is easier on my brain, but tumblr is great too! (If there are any Nathan Ingrams out there I will cry diamond tears of happiness.)

POI slash discussion

[personal profile] aprilvalentine 2013-08-06 03:17 pm (UTC)(link)
I'm looking for places -- besides here -- to discuss aspects of rinch and other slash in POI. Is there any regular comm on DW or do most folks just post on their journals individually with reaction posts etc?

I haven't spent as much time on DW as I have on LJ and while I joined this comm a little while ago, I really hadn't spent much time exploring it, aside from reading some of the fic posted on AO3, until last night. And I mean all last night. Sigh... I was very happy to be bleary eyed when I finally fell asleep and happy to have found fics that I hadn't seen anywhere else yet and to revisit ones I'd read before. The prompts, the comments, the writing of the fills... it's all wonderful and I can see I'll be hanging out here a lot! Wonderful comm -- just had to say.
