Re: FILL: all the things we don't talk about, Reese/Finch, 17/?

They're so... They're just so...

See Reese is good at compartmentalizing; he's had years of training for that. He isn't pining for Finch, not physically. Reese has, like, professional sublimation skills.

Finch, though, is just in shock. He is definitely pining for Reese, in a way he's never pined for anything, but he's just fundamentally convinced that that is a misuse of his time. Like thinking of Reese that way is... self-indulgent.

ashflkaflka you have no idea how hard it is for me to compose a response that contains actual words and thoughts and not just keening because I mean okay yes Reese's entire life is built on tragedy and emptiness and the absence of all hope and Finch is, I don't know what Finch is, Finch is an enigma wrapped in HOW CAN YOU LOOK INTO REESE'S EYES AND NOT SEE THE ABSOLUTE DEVOTION SHINING BACK AT YOU

but then the part where Reese just actually doesn't even, like, it's not just that whatever Finch wants is by definition everything Reese could ask for -- as if that wasn't heartbreaking enough -- but that he's actually so good at rearranging things inside his head that it isn't even difficult?

and meanwhile Finch thinks that pining is a "misuse of his time" and I just. how is that so perfectly. Finch what are you, what does that even mean? but it's clearly so true, that is his exact tragic thought process, and I can't
