Reese/Finch, undercover in a gay bar

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:12 pm (UTC)(link)
Just because it's been done 1 2 20 A LOT of times doesn't mean it's not STILL AWESOME

Reese/Finch, dystopian huddling for warmth

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:24 pm (UTC)(link)
Background: civilization has been shattered by a war of artificial intelligences. Reese and Finch, protected and guided by the Machine, make their way arduously through the broken post-apocalyptic landscape trying to help the remnants of humanity survive and rebuild.

They find a snug cave and huddle in for the night. It's very cold, and they're very tired. TELL ME MORE.

Reese/Finch, Finch/other, pretend to be married

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:31 pm (UTC)(link)
This time Finch has to pretend to be married/dating someone not-Reese. Reese goes quietly crazy as he watches them. (Stoic pining ftw.)

Elias / Anthony Marconi

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:42 pm (UTC)(link)
Elias seducing/corrupting Anthony away from the mob. Or alternately, just picking him up off the street after things didn't work out the way he thought they would in the Mafia.

The Machine in a Superhero universe

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:44 pm (UTC)(link)
No fandom is complete without Superhero!AU's, but how difficult would it be to have the Machine in a world where secret identities have to be maintained? How easy would it be for the Machine to find out that Bruce Wayne is Batman? Would the Machine report the numbers of runaway Mutants with dangerous powers as Relevent or Irrelevent? Was this part of the reason the Government wanted it built in the first place, but Harold made the machine so it helped protect heros?

tldr: how does the Machine work in DC or Marvel universe? Does it help or hinder superheros?

Fill: Booked Solid - Carter & Reese, huddling for warmth - General - No Warnings

"I'll sleep on the floor," Reese said.

There was only a single narrow bed in the room. The entire town was booked solid for some annual geek convention; the only reason they'd even gotten this room was that the heating didn't work. Joss couldn't actually see her breath, but it felt like she should be able to.

She looked at Reese, then down at the icy cold tile floor. "Don't be an idiot," she said.


She felt painfully naked in a t-shirt and panties. She'd dithered over whether to keep her pants on, but she didn't have spare clothes, and she couldn't afford to show up in wrinkled clothes tomorrow. John, in briefs and an undershirt, seemed to have made the same decision. He'd looked completely unconcerned walking out of the bathroom, but from the way he was lying on the very edge of the bed, she suspected he wasn't any more comfortable with this than she was.

He was also leaving her the biggest part of the thin comforter, which couldn't possibly cover both of them properly, with them huddled on opposite edges of the bed like that. So chivalrous. She rolled her eyes and shifted a little closer. "Get under the goddamn covers," she said.

He did; it didn't help much. Joss was freezing, and she thought she could feel the occasional shiver from him, transmitted through the mattress. The clock was ticking loudly in the silence, minutes crawling by very slowly while her entire body stiffened up from the cold. This was ridiculous. Neither of them were going to get a wink of sleep this way, and they needed to be on top of their game tomorrow. They were both grown-ups, veterans, people who knew how to get shit done; they could handle this like the professionals they were.

"Roll over," she said, shoving at his shoulder. He blinked at her. In the faint city light filtering through the curtains she could just barely see the way he raised an eyebrow at her in question. She shoved him again, and this time he allowed her to roll him into his side, his back to her. Without giving herself any more time for second thoughts, she rolled up against him, her chest pressed to his back. She could feel the way his entire body went tense with surprise. "Shhh, go to sleep," she said.

Warmth was gathering quickly everywhere their bodies touched. Joss could feel her tight muscles beginning to relax, her entire body slack and happy with the pure animal pleasure of not being cold anymore.

Reese was still holding himself stiffly. He wasn't trying to pull away, but he wasn't relaxing at all, either. Her hand was resting against his side; she could feel the tightly controlled rhythm of his breath.

"Go to sleep," she said again.

She felt him forcing himself to relax, could feel the effort it took, the way he had to consciously unclench every single one of his muscles. She wondered how long it had been since anyone had touched him; how long since he'd let down his guard in front of anyone?

By the time his breath finally evened out into the deep rhythm of sleep, his body warm and easy against hers, she knew what a sign of trust it was. She leaned her face against the warm skin of his shoulder, smiling as she drifted off to sleep.

Reese/Zoe Morgan

[personal profile] ljc 2013-04-02 05:49 pm (UTC)(link)
I love their low-key interactions, the sly humour, the chemistry and how they accept one another for who and what they are but still have hopes and desires that seep there here and there. It's all grey areas and between the lines. How do they interact between numbers? Is it all strip poker and good scotch? Do they trade titbits of personal information like poker chips? What happens when things lurking below the surface come to light? Do they confront or deny?

Finch/Shaw, it's all right with me

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:50 pm (UTC)(link)
Shaw figures out (before or after) that Finch is in love with Reese, but will never make a move because Reese owes him too much and couldn't say no. Basically I just want them to get enjoyably laid with no emotional attachment, which is how they both want it, or at least think they want it.

Bonus points: does Reese find out? What happens after? (Feel free to go Reese/Finch or Reese/Finch/Shaw!)

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:52 pm (UTC)(link)
Carter/Reese; Finch tries to set them up in increasingly less subtle situations, finally they cave.

John buys cupcakes

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 05:55 pm (UTC)(link)
From the FAQ:

...if a story begins, "On Monday, John went to the post office. On Tuesday, he shot some guys in the kneecaps and punched some guys in the face. On Wednesday, he bought cupcakes," and the rest of the story is about John picking out cupcakes, it would not require the [Graphic violence] label.

Now I must have the story where John buys cupcakes. Up to you whether the final story does or does not in fact require the graphic violence label. Pairing optional, would prefer Reese/Finch if you have one

Crossover with Avengers: Finch/Reese, Barton/Coulson

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 06:05 pm (UTC)(link)
The Machine turns up Coulson's number because mumble something in his past or S.H.I.E.L.D. related, so Reese starts to follow him. Turns out, Barton is also following Coulson because he has unrequited feelings and must protect.

Reese and Finch suspect Barton, then Reese and Barton team up to protect Coulson. Huge Bonus if Reese and Barton have a history, maybe a one-night stand when Reese was an agent and Barton was in the military in Afghanistan, maybe just UST and drinking/fighting/co-mission from back then.

Somehow Team Machine and Barton save Coulson. Somehow Finch learns that Reese is gay or bi from this and makes his move. Somehow Barton makes his move on Coulson. The two couples are happy and have hot sex, or fade out before the sex if you prefer. Or a foursome, if you can make it work, but I don't really see that, because of all the feeeeeelings.

Before or after movie as you wish.

Reese/Finch sexpollen/fuck or die

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 06:12 pm (UTC)(link)
One of them is sexpollened. The other one really doesn't want to take advantage, but the sexpollened one is doing badly enough that he's worried for his life if he doesn't get relief.

I'd really like to read the awkward morning after, too, with both of them blaming themselves for what happened and worrying about the other one.

Finch/Reese - Logan Pierce returns

[personal profile] giandujakiss 2013-04-02 06:15 pm (UTC)(link)
Logan Pierce is back and trying to woo Reese (platonically or otherwise). Finch is Not Amused.

Reese as an addict

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 07:03 pm (UTC)(link)
Reese/Finch (slash or friendship): Reese has had to go undercover for a number which included drug use of some kind (e.g. cocaine) on his side to be believabe. Afterwards, he has a hard time quitting the drugs and tries to keep it a secret. Things escalate when Finch finds out and confronts him about it.

Reese/Finch, Culture AU

[personal profile] killalla 2013-04-02 07:18 pm (UTC)(link)
(If anyone else reads Iain M. Banks...)

I would love to see a Culture AU where Finch is a combat drone, or possibly a ship mind - I'm thinking Very Fast Picket (demilitarised Rapid Offensive Unit), Inquisitor Class, but whatever you'd like. Reese works for Special Circumstances, of course, and hijinks ensue. Bonus points if they have an unduly intimate relationship by Culture standards and the term "meatfucker" is used.

Finch/Fusco, clumsy kisses

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 07:41 pm (UTC)(link)
Whatever reason comes to mind: a hastily improvised cover, Finch got roofied again, Fusco is semi-delirious after a rescue, whatever. Just Finch and Fusco and something clumsy and sort of sweet?

Joss Carter/Zoe Morgan, Highwayman AU

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 07:48 pm (UTC)(link)
Zoe Morgan is an inane lesser noblewoman by day, a dashing highwaywoman plying the kingdom's roads by night. Joss Carter is the guardswoman sent to hunt her down and bring her to justice.

Oh, my *heart*. ♥ This is so sweet.

Reese/Grace(/Finch), Grace is a number

(Anonymous) 2013-04-02 07:59 pm (UTC)(link)
The Machine gives Grace's number, Finch freaks out, Reese goes into overdrive, and things escalate from there.

Bonus if you include Carter questioning her life choices.

I don't know anything about Caviezel's stance on homosexuality, but I believe he's an extremely devout Catholic.

Fundamentalist Christianity is very very different than Catholicism.

(same commenter as above) this isn't meant to be a critique of the prompt itself though, because it sounds like it could be an interesting story!

Finch/Reese - Finch dresses down, Reese likes it

[personal profile] annchi 2013-04-02 08:10 pm (UTC)(link)
On a case, as part of a cover identity? Finch wears casual clothes or similar and Reese can't keep his eyes off him (or his hands to himself).
