Reese/Finch, Finch is jealous and/or possessive, Reese kind of likes it.

(Anonymous) 2013-10-16 01:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Ok, so I had been waaay behind in watching PoI because of RL time constraints.

Anywho, this weekend I caught up on all the eps and I REALLY want to read a post-ep fic dealing with 3x01 "Liberty". Particularly the following scene right after the Marine drops Jack Salazar's friend RJ's hat on the floor and pours a drink on it:

Jack: "You're gonna need to pick that up."
Marine: "Or what squid? One of you split tails gonna do something about it?"
Jack: "Or he's gonna have to take a swing at you. Then your knuckle dragger buddy over here is gonna jump me. And after I introduce his face to the bar, I'm gonna put this foot upside of your jar head. Upon which, all hell breaks loose. And nobody wants that."

John: "I like this guy, Finch."
Harold: "Hmmm."

Okay, the look on Finch's face pretty much screams jealousy to me. Like he's trying to determine just how much John likes this guy. Maybe I'm reading too much into it, whatever. lol I still would like to see what someone could do with that scene after the case is all wrapped up.

Mainly, I just want to see a bit of possessiveness and jealousy from Finch towards Reese after they return to the library after their shared drinks at the bar. Maybe John is still talking about Jack Salazar and although Finch admires the guy as well, he's kind of tired of John's seemingly excessive admiration. And maybe, being a little tipsy from the drinks John plied him with, he's less inclined to reign his jealousy in.

Bonus if John noticed the little 'hmmm' from earlier and is only going on and on about Jack in a bid to make Finch jealous and get a little jealousy-sex out of his lover.

Reese + Finch, movie night at the library! Scary stuff!

(Anonymous) 2013-10-16 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
They've just finished a number, they're tired and sore and they need the downtime, so they end up on the sofa watching a horror movie together.

Finch + Reese - a number is someone John met before, past non-con, h/c, PTSD, protective!Finch

(Anonymous) 2013-10-16 06:07 pm (UTC)(link)
Their latest number is someone John met before, when he was in the CIA. The man is a power hungry sadist and John had to let the man force himself on him as part of a mission. He's the victim this time around though; John doesn't tell Finch, and the number has forgotten him at first. But once it's over, he remembers and by then Finch has found out the truth too.

When the man tries to arrange to see John again, unbeknownst to him Finch goes instead and arrives just as the man finds out he's been personally and financially destroyed.

Finch lets him know this is what happens to people who hurt his friend.

Does John find out what Harold did?

Finch, Reese - Finch knows how to ballroom dance, emotional h/c

(Anonymous) 2013-10-20 08:25 pm (UTC)(link)
For their latest number, Reese needs to know how to ballroom dance. Just the basics.

Turns out Finch knows, and wrangles Carter's help to teach John. Up to you how Finch learned, but it's difficult for him to watch them doing something he can't anymore.

Once the number is successfully resolved, John finds a way to help Finch feel a little better.

Finch/Reese, privacy!kink Finch,

(Anonymous) 2013-10-20 08:38 pm (UTC)(link)
The boys have to attend a masquerade ball of sorts. Reese teases Finch about it being his kind of thing, but it really really is.

Not least because Reese looks really hot in his outfit and mask, and Finch has some fun with hiding in plain sight, forcing Reese to find him.

And when he does, Reese insists on a reward.

Reese, Finch, it isn't Bear Reese finds while he's looking for Finch....

(Anonymous) 2013-10-24 07:57 pm (UTC)(link)
...It's Toothless. If it took Finch a while to warm to Bear, what state would he be in with John providing him with a dragon as a bodyguard?

Finch, Reese, one-sided, voyeurism, potentially creepy Finch, Finch is attracted to Reese...

(Anonymous) 2013-10-24 08:21 pm (UTC)(link)
...but Reese is straight. Finch is keenly aware of this, but in addition John is his employee - he's responsible for him, for his welfare, he would never dream of crossing that line.

It doesn't mean he can't look at John when he's walking, fighting, cleaning guns; it doesn't mean he can't watch John when he's sleeping at the library because he's exhausted, sick or hurt; it doesn't mean he can't listen to everything John does over the earpiece, his breathing, his interactions.

The line is getting smaller by the day.

Reese/Finch, intelligence kink/dirty talk

(Anonymous) 2013-10-25 05:16 am (UTC)(link)
Reese or Finch (author's choice) is turned on by intelligence, skills, competency, etc. Bonus points if their dirty talk is full of obscure and/or geeky references!

Root/Shaw, Pets

(Anonymous) 2013-10-26 09:18 am (UTC)(link)
"It's so adorable how John follows you around. I wish I had a pet!"

Should've seen this coming. Now that Root has the pet she wants, what's she going to do with her? Anything goes.

Finch, Reese, Finch has to buy Reese to save him, h/c, kidnap

(Anonymous) 2013-10-31 07:43 pm (UTC)(link)
Their latest number turns out to be a man who disappears people to sell them to slavers, for medical research, you name it. Reese falls foul of them while investigating, forcing Finch to go undercover and try to buy Reese at one of the auctions.

He ends up in a heated bidding war with someone over Reese and has to spend an incredible amount of money to get Reese back. But making sure John is safe and not taken away from him is worth every penny and more.

Comfort for Reese who is a little shaken by the close call.

Finch/Reese, physical limitations, D/s,

(Anonymous) 2013-11-02 08:09 pm (UTC)(link)
The only thing holding Finch back from sleeping with Reese is his physical limitations. Reese eventually has enough of waiting and tells Finch that he's the smartest guy on the planet, work around it. Harold responds by ordering John to lie perfectly still on his desk - the level making him perfectly accessible for Harold - while he strips him, uses his hands and his mouth all over John.

Caveziel/Emerson RPF: trailer sex

(Anonymous) 2013-11-07 01:13 am (UTC)(link)
Trailer sex! it's another grueling 14-hour day in NYC cold and Jim feels exhausted and wants a 100% innocent comforting snuggle in Michael's trailer (optionally until it stops being innocent)

I don't care how you get there or if you just jump straight into the action!

Root/Shaw- Stalker

(Anonymous) 2013-11-08 04:46 am (UTC)(link)
Root is tired of admiring Shaw from a distance, so she breaks into her apartment and tries on some her her lingerie.
One night, Shaw catches her. How will she punish Root?

Root, Reese, protective!Root?

(Anonymous) 2013-11-10 05:51 pm (UTC)(link)
Root meant what she said when she phoned Reese and thanked him for finding her friend's body and told him she wouldn't forget it.

She gets a chance to make it up to him.

It's canon now!

Finch, Reese, Finch holds Reese back

[personal profile] huggle 2013-11-10 08:23 pm (UTC)(link)
So I was just watching some TV where things got a bit heated and one person put his hand on the other person's knee to sort of calm things down.

Maybe someone is making veiled threats to Finch or says something Reese doesn't like, and Finch knows it, but also knows this is not the time for Reese to start a fight over it. So he puts his hand on Reese's knee to keep him calm and in place.

Ficlet - Simplicity (1/1) Slash, adult content

(Anonymous) 2015-04-30 08:37 pm (UTC)(link)

It started out as the simplest of gestures. Though, having said that, when it came to Harold Finch, no gesture was ever simple. The thought process behind every last twitch, every last murmur, was a wall of text - a full page, where most ordinary men would use a word. Some would even suggest it was code, akin to the very code which was the lifeblood of his own machine. For when people in this city made simple gestures, Finch knew that there were no fewer than a thousand actions, predictions, realisations and decisions at the core of those throwaway movements you speak of. Harold Finch simply didn't believe in simple.

He found himself, however, arched forward in haste, restraining his associate with a firm grip of the knee. Reese was disciplined in the art of levelheadedness - any CIA operative worth his salt knew that a calm situation was a controllable one - but there was something about seeing Finch in danger which erased his former education, and brought on a reckless nature which no amount of training could quell. All hell was about to break loose. If John was going to forget everything he was ever taught, Harold was their only hope, and hope he certainly would, as his arm flew out like a barrier between themselves and their aggressor.

"For God's sake, stop! Mr. Reese..." he choked out the words, knowing that, should they manage to negotiate a little longer, Carter was on her way and would surely track them down.

What was simple, and easy to deduce from this, was that Finch had effectively managed to defuse the situation, thus buying them some much needed time. What wasn't, for Finch at least, was his choice of method. Because, whilst he could have chosen to pull on Reese's shoulder, grab his arm, or merely stand from his chair as a means of regaining composure from the younger man, Finch's hand slid along Reese's muscular thigh and tightened around his knee. The sound of Harold's speech could be heard to waver as the warmth of his colleague's flesh seeped through the suit fabric and into his fingers.

For Harold, the intense heat seared his palm, and he witnessed the hotness rush to his face, his cheeks now flushed, beads of sweat forming at his temples. It was an instant reaction, as if igniting touchpaper. He may have lost himself for a split second, but after a few of them, he was more than aware of what he had just done. Of course, nobody else would ever realise anything had changed, from his mostly cool front - apart from the one person who knew him best. Reese wouldn't had batted a pretty little eyelid had it have been say, the protective Joss Carter or the sexually provocative Zoe Morgan, but when it came to a touch from the emotionally cold Harold Finch - there were no fewer than a thousand actions, predictions, realisations and decisions behind every throwaway movement. When John looked into Harold's nervous eyes, he finally fathomed each and every one.

The next time Harold's hand snaked its way along John's thigh, it was bare. Nimble typist's fingers traced a map of surface wounds and bullet scars as if they were trying to trace the way. Eventually they would lead him to his treasure, buried within an underwear clad mound. When he placed his hand atop it, he faltered, and feeling shy he retracted his hand. The former agent hissed with desire and bucked forward until his friend's grasp met with it again, and to ensure that the same would not happen this time, he wrapped an arm around Finch and brought him close.

Fully clothed, the reclusive billionaire was half-dragged, and half-clambered of his own accord into Mr. Reese's lap. Easing the slight discomfort his injuries constantly caused him, he shuffled slightly, unknowing of what he was doing to the passion-addled John. With his arms around his beloved Harold, the feel now of his breath ghosting against the side of his quivering jaw, his hardness constantly roused by the fidgety man, Reese knew he would scream if he could not focus his desperate mouth on something and something soon. And so he did. He then captured Finch's soft lips, hungrily, in what would be the first kiss of many.

Harold Finch was the creator of the machine, though some would even suggest that the emotionally cold Harold was a machine himself, from the way his brain processed data to the logical, unhindered thought processes which guided them through saving every number. But whoever said a machine had to be complicated? He now knew what his heart wanted and what it wanted was simple.

Simply John.

Reese, horror/creepiness, there's something wrong with his new apartment

The apartment Finch buys for Reese is haunted.

Can have a creepy ending if you like - how would Reese react against a supernatural threat?

PoI/The Avengers crossover: Harold, John, Steve, and Tony all meet at a New York gala.

(Anonymous) 2013-11-17 02:33 am (UTC)(link)
Two genius billionaire philanthropists meet at a New York gala, bringing along their dashing, heroic, and ex-military boyfriends who have stubborn streaks a mile wide. Said genius billionaire philanthropists are not surprised when the latter pair hit it off like a house on fire.

Off to the side, Carter and Fusco roll their eyes, while Barton and Romanoff snort into glasses of wine.

BONUS: Tony knows Harold, and Harold knows Tony. It can be from MIT, business association, but really big points if Tony is one of the few people Harold can actually trust.

BIG BONUS: John and Steve end up defending their respective partners from whatever shit happens at the event. Be it a POI, Doom, or Loki. Said partners squawk about not being damsels-in-distress. Cue eye-rolls from John and Steve.

BIG, BIG BONUS: Carter and Romanoff being bad-asses.

HAVE MY SOUL AS A BONUS: For some reason, pets are allowed at the vent. Bear and Thor meet. They end up taking over the entire party. That is all.

Re: PoI/The Avengers crossover: Harold, John, Steve, and Tony all meet at a New York gala.

Root/Machine (Personification, Human/AI action)

(Anonymous) 2013-11-24 05:22 am (UTC)(link)
The Machine takes on a human form (male or female, author's choice), and Root is instantly attracted to it.

It can be a crack fic if you want!


(Anonymous) 2013-11-25 11:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Inspired by this gifset:

I love the tangle of emotions, Harold's fear and fascination in different shades, inscrutability and control mixed with uncertainty, maybe even jealousy, the Machine always in the mix between them, and Root, constantly baiting him, with hidden anger, but also with twisted appreciation and desire. Some sexual expression and explosion of the tension between them in those scenes would be awesome.

Asexual John (John/Harold)

(Anonymous) 2013-11-26 12:33 pm (UTC)(link)
John is asexual.

Inspired by Zoe asking him if it would kill him to kiss a girl, their poker games and how flustered he was when he walked into the Hair Salon. He also lied to Shaw when she asked if he and Zoe blow off their steam together, since he is really not whole with himself about his sexuality.
The flashback with Jessica? Was just after he told her and she accepted him as he is, and he was genuinely happy she is okay with it after all the rejections he suffered in the past from people he cared about.

SO - John is interested in Harold, but not sure what to do.
Happy ending, please!

Magical Bonus Points - There is a number with a Trans* person involved.

Thank you <3

i forgot the rest but i'd like this to happen

Finch, Reese, protective!Finch, h/c, a cult targets Reese

(Anonymous) 2013-11-30 10:01 pm (UTC)(link)
Carter's been investigating the cult, and they've already threatened her son, but when they see her meet Reese they think an interim message delivered through a friend is just as good.

Up to nonny if John isn't in the least bit bothered by them, and their attempts to scare him, but Harold is because he's aware of the terrible things they've done and he knows there's a lot of them - or if they actually take John resulting in an epic rescue and lots of comfort from Harold.

Non-Con, Evil/Sadistic Root, Finch/Root, hurt/comfort

(Anonymous) 2013-12-02 05:05 pm (UTC)(link)
Because we all know Root is obsessed with the creator of her god, but what if she takes this obsession to the next level? Maybe she drugs him, or incapacitates him in some way, but just non-con Root/Finch with Reese saving him at the end and providing loads of hurt comfort. Can be Reese/Finch if you want.

Reese, Wesley, vengeance, h/c, protective!Finch

(Anonymous) 2013-12-05 11:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Post a number, Finch is to meet Reese at a bar before they head back to the library.

Wesley decides it's time for that drink, which turns out to be drugged.

Fortunately, Finch gets them in time to extricate Reese before Wesley can do anything (I'm itching to see Finch facing Wesley down, in the bar, all protective and furious).

Then Finch gets him back to the library for some comfort and looking after.

Reese, Finch, Fusco, Reese can't whistle, teased!Reese

(Anonymous) 2013-12-08 09:46 pm (UTC)(link)
I could be wrong but so far whenever Reese has to whistle (for a cab for Leon, to call Bear to him after kicking some Aryan backsides), we only ever hear him do it, never actually see him, which started me wondering if Jim can't actually whistle.

So...Finch and / or Fusco find out Reese actually can't whistle. Finch is slightly surprised. Fusco thinks it's hilarious that this is something that Wonder Boy can't actually do. Maybe he buys Reese a whistle.
