Re: FILL: Touch, Reese/Finch, Teen, 4/?

How wonderful! Reese has finally one-upped Finch -- too bad for Finch. Maybe now the man will get a clue. :)

Reese is a hungry, greedy bottom and Finch gives him everything he needs.

He was kneeling in front of Finch, scrabbling his bloodied hands at the chair leg where Finch's ankle was tied, and he was thinking finch finch finch and so that's all he said, too, just, "Finch," until Finch put his hand out and touched his head. Finch put his hand on John's head so gently.

*whimpers* That whole opening got me right in the guts. So much unsaid, and you still get exactly where John's head is. And I love John's "I got you" being echoed by Harold at the end.

"How did I agree to this?" Harold muttered to John as they were nodded through the conference center doors.

John bumped him and said, "What's that? Can't quite–" and then began striding forward to shake hands with the flunkie coming their way.

Harold tapped his earpiece. "I said: this is a terrible idea and we should leave immediately." He watched John's shoulders crumple a little with laughter as he introduced them both to the woman with the clipboard.

Harold had successfully avoided places like this his entire life. He looked into the hall; stations were set out in half circles, with computers in messy groups: here a group of boys crouching over laptops, there two sharp-suited women were building lego cases round about a hundred Pis and arguing about something intensely; up on the stage two figures, hidden by the crowd around them, were coding something that was projected on the huge screen. It was–he just had to get out of here, that was all. He just had to.

His earpiece pipped. John's voice came in, softly amused. "I do my best you know," he said. "But there's no way in hell I can take your cover at a hackathon." And then he was there at Harold's side as Ellie Higson (078-05-1120) from Kleiner Perkins walked straight toward him like a bee seeking honey.

--will try to come back and carry this on but if anyone wants to take up/ tag then go for it!

Harold looks up into Ms Higson's face as she mouths to John 'is this the guy?' and he feels, rather than sees, John's slow, satisfied nod of confirmation.

He would be lying if he said he didn't like that.

Ms Higson is small; he looks down into her bright, heart shaped face, and says hello and how good to meet and all that sort of thing. He is still mostly caught up in his overwhelming desire to walk right out the fire exit, but through the hubbub he hears "nonsequential insertions over the allocation" and "reindexing right through each aux" and Harold smiles. He grips Ms Higson's hand firmly. "Oh yes," he tells her. "I'm familiar with big data. Really big data."

He sits - there's a computer right there with a decent chair so he takes that one. He lays his phone on the desk and - he thinks pretty smoothly - flips the jammer he set up this morning so nothing is recorded. He runs his eyes over the file Ms Higson has flicked from her tablet onto the screen, blows out a breath, and starts diagramming.

He loves this part, always, and he dives down into the algorithm as he sketches out a tree in Processing, lets himself defocus and see the problem extend itself into four dimensions. Behind him, Ms Higson snorts and drawls, "Yeah, a B-tree, great inno–" and he can't help but feel a little thrill of pleasure as she falls silent. She reaches past him and flips on the display mirror and then all around them there are little noises: someone whistles, long and low, someone says loudly: "Yeah? What's the big deal?"

This is so lovely! What an intriguing beginning... and, heh, a hackathon. :-) I wonder how exactly they're going to present their relationship.

I hope you do continue this, because I'd love to read the rest of the story!

Knees and Hospitals

(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 11:39 am (UTC)(link)
I just want to read the one about the NYC hospital and their ongoing pool as to how many people will come in that day because of a gunshot to the knee. And maybe their competition with that cross town hospital as to who will get more.

Finch/Reese, alive!Nathan

(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 01:05 pm (UTC)(link)
The one where Reese rescues Nathan from an eeevil faction of the government who faked his death and imprisoned him to get him to do something machiney.

And Finch is so happy! His friend is back! And look what I did Nathan, we're saving the irrelevants, just like you wanted aren't you proud of me Nathan come let's have dinner and I'll tell you about the time I stole a baby.

And Reese is happy! Because he made Finch happy by saving his friend and making Finch happy is the best thing in the world and he wants to be here with Finch and count how many types of smiles he shows and where are you going with Nathan, Finch? Sure, I'll look after Bear while you go to a baseball game with your new/old best friend. Again. I never see you anymore do you like him better than me my life is so hard.

And Nathan is happy! When he isn't PTSD-ing, anyway. And finally understands why Harold never gets involved with people, since he doesn't even notice his guard dog pining after him. And maybe he'll point that out eventually, but he spent two years in a windowless cell and a man's got to find his fun where he can.

Finch Loses His Voice

Finch, whose power is really his ability to communicate, loses his voice. Go.

Finch/Reese, movie date... OH WAIT THAT REALLY HAPPENED

(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 02:47 pm (UTC)(link)
So at the beginning of 2x17 Proteus, Finch & Reese have gone to the movies together... which is about the most adorable thing that has EVER happened. Can I have like fifty stories of HOW that happened? Was it an actual planned thing, or did Finch just try to go the movies by himself and Reese stalked him there? If it was planned, whose idea was it? Who paid? Did Reese tease about it being a date-like activity? Just, tell me more about the movie date plz.


(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 03:09 pm (UTC)(link)
Mr Reese is standing by him, and he's got this smile on his face like he's won the lotto- Harold can see it in the reflection on the monitor - and he really likes that smile. He feels like he'd maybe like to make John smile like that some more. Even though he knows this is just the cover- John is just playing his role - but he can't help but...Oh hell. He brings up another terminal and inverts the cameras on all the phones that are being held up recording him and there are startled exclamations and curses fanning out in a shockwave as each person realises they are recording themselves instead of him.

He'd jammed them already. That, he admits to himself, was just showing off.

Up on the stage, the crowd is no longer watching the code battle; they're all fixated on the mirror of Harold's screen. Some smartmouth says, "Holy God I'm gonna come in my pants," and then John steps nearer, puts his big hand on the back of Harold's neck and murmurs, "Gotta hand it to you. Pretty much everyone in this room wishes they were allowed to touch you right now, Finch."

His voice still has that soft crackle of amusement in it but there's something else as well. An unsteadiness that makes Harold shiver a little. And then he realizes what John's words mean and says, "Who's not convinced?"

John steps back, deftly taking in the room in the most natural movement. He walks like he's stretching his legs and then taps open their line and says in an undertone, "Two women not paying attention to anything but this...I think they're legos? A whole bunch of people milling round booths not watching. Your six o'clock, guy in a suit, maybe thirties. He's watching the screen all right but he does not look happy about it."

Harold opens his mouth to respond but John is already there. "Yeah, I'm on him. Keep doing ... whatever it is you're doing."

Elias/Reese, trading non-con/dubcon for information

(Anonymous) 2013-04-07 03:47 pm (UTC)(link)
So when Reese asks Elias for help finding Laila, what if the scene played out a bit longer? What if Elias wanted to test out how far John would go? What if he got off on power? What if he wanted to flaunt it? What if Finch found a way to listen in? Or would Finch find out later on and dig up some footage? Or would he not know at all? Would Reese tell him or just shrug it off?

Essentially, consent issues and their fallout. Personally, I'd love a Finch/Reese layer to it, but that's up to you.

Forgot to say: I'm kinda curious how that phone call to Harold would turn out and what Harold would think about John avoiding him...?! ;)
