POI AU, Finch/Reese

(Anonymous) 2013-06-26 05:11 am (UTC)(link)
When Reese is dead, Finch is devastated and wanted revenge on the people who took him away from him. He gets full access to the machine to achieve his goal. He still save people but he also destroy people anyway he can. Years later, somewhere, Reese woke up from his coma and learned that his beloved Finch has changed drastically. Reese joined the resistance against Finch to stop him but also to save him. Finch is happy to see Reese is alive but thinks he no longer deserve him after all the dark things he does. Reese will do anything to get his former lover back, the kind and adorably-shy Finch back. However Finch didn't want to return to his former-self whom he thought to be stupid and naive. Reese finally kidnapped Finch to persuade and seduce him. Can he break the wall built around Finch's fragile heart?

Reese/Agent Fahey

(Anonymous) 2013-06-26 08:03 am (UTC)(link)
I would like some Reese/Agent Fahey, yes, the imposter one, except I would like him not to be the imposter after all. I like their first meeting in the episode, funny and cute. So i would to read more of this. Reese have to protect young Fahey who obviously have no experience in the field at all.

Fringe/POI crossover, Reese/Finch, Alt!Reese/Finch

(Anonymous) 2013-06-26 08:19 am (UTC)(link)
Reese's counterpart in the other universe is ruthless serial killer. Agents from the other universe are dispatched to our universe to track down Reese for interview and to better understanding their Reese. Problem is Reese is listed as deceased in our universe. However they managed to find out that Reese is alive and in New York as a vigilante 'the man in suit'. Meanwhile Alt!Reese decided he needed to meet with his other self to see if he would be a threat to him or not and ended up meeting Finch who has mistake him for the original Reese.

OMG Reese was going to have lunch with Fusco! But more importantly WHAT ARE THESE TWO EVEN this is totally what they'd do "oh it's been five days since I've seen you I've been freaking out and now you're back and my heart is doing a fucking gymnastics routine inside my chest hey Finch how's it going" "ah Mr. Reese I observe that you are corporeal and ambulatory as usual my secret inner life cannot actually be revealed beneath this strikethrough because the audience won't learn anything about it until AFTER THIS SMALL CLIFFHANGER"

ashflkaghal so FOR THE RECORD I feel that depriving the rest of the meme of these notes would be akin to cruelly depriving Bear of delicious pastries but so like, if perhaps someday a thought drifted across your mind that related to Finch and Reese in some way, and you weren't sure there was any proper forum for it, and considered sadly the possibility that you would be forced to keep it to yourself for all of time, THAT WOULD BE AN ACCEPTABLE TIME TO PM ME is all I'm saying

Reese/Finch (and others?): Permanent injury

(Anonymous) 2013-06-26 11:49 am (UTC)(link)
Reese is injured (stabbed, shot, nasty fall, whatever) and ends up in a wheelchair again. Only this time it's permanent. [If that's too painful to write I could compromise with something like a useless leg or arm, something that would make it very difficult for him to be the hands-on guy in their operation :)]

I would like to read about Reese and Finch dealing with the new situation, both in their own ways (and not necessarily compatible). Bear/Fusco/Carter, too, if you wish.

Slash or gen is cool. I'd be forever grateful to the author!

FILL: all the things we don't talk about, Reese/Finch, 16/?

"Mr. Reese."

Finch heard his own voice, heard it say John's assumed name in a calm, level tone. Almost as though he hadn't spent days rehearsing what he now had to say.

Finch gestured towards the table, inviting Reese to sit. "I am happy to see that you are neither hospitalized nor imprisoned."

Reese sat. "Couldn't. They don't allow dogs in hospitals or prisons."

With a shock, Finch realized that, by leaving Reese on his own, he'd left Bear vulnerable as well. "Ah. Of course," he said, chastened.

"Then again, maybe Bear could have used a break from being around me, too," Reese said. He'd obviously meant it to be banter, but Finch felt as though all the air had been taken out of his lungs.

He'd spent the week in an old safe house he hadn't used since university - the place where he'd written most of his thesis, in fact. He'd hunkered down there with nothing but a computer and some frozen dinners, and spent the week working on a project. A nice, coherent, complicated, workable project.

He'd emerged feeling grounded, and in control. He took a deep breath. He wouldn't let anything shake that control just yet.

"We have something to discuss, Mr. Reese."

He'd enjoyed the first few days alone. He'd put together most of the framework for an online suicide prevention network. He'd been pretty happy with the result, by the fourth day, when it had occurred to him that there might be something wrong with his vacation, such as it was.

And so he had something to tell Reese. "Thank you for respecting my privacy during my absence. You would not have been able to find me, but I can see that you did not even attempt it."

"Well, Finch -"

Finch help up his hand, just a little bit, so Reese wouldn't interrupt him. "Were you take a similar leave of absence, I would, of course, afford you the same respect."

Reese shifted in his seat.

"Mr. Reese, our partnership has the potential to become... claustrophobic, at times, and I would certainly understand if you needed some breathing room." Finch couldn't quite make himself look Reese in the eye. "However... it occurs to me that we... that you and I may be on uneven ground. You have, of course, the loft, and your credit cards, and your aliases. But they are the credit cards and aliases I gave you, and the loft I bought for you. Since you do not have similar knowledge of my sources of income or my aliases, I'm concerned that this might be... unfair."

As if on cue, Finch took out a folded piece of paper from his pocket, and slid it onto the table. "I've deposited a sufficient amount of money into this numbered account for you to purchase a safe house. The account is as untraceable as I could make it - untraceable even from myself - and I urge you to select an equally untraceable safe house."

Reese started. "Harold -"

But Finch held up his hand again. "Mr. Reese - John - you said that you did not feel that anything untoward had happened between you and I, and I trust you, but it would ease my mind if you had a space, a space I could not go looking for, even if I wanted to."

Reese slowly reached out for the piece of paper.

Finch forced himself to look up, look straight at Reese. "I would like us to be on even ground, Mr. Reese." His voice did not even shake.

damn, I should have written that as his first line.

I went with "you are neither hospitalized nor imprisoned" but yours is better.

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

In the morning, Finch waited for a number to come in, but nothing happened, and he instead spent most of the early morning staring at the library bedroom "door" in defeat.

He'd meant to go back in there. He really had. He'd gotten some breathing room for six whole days, he'd taken a step back and assessed the situation; he was in control. He'd planned to go back in there, change the sheets and tidy the room, and finally get some sleep in what was, for all intents and purposes, his real bedroom.

But then... Then he'd seen John, and John had been real, and familiar, and he made Finch feel self-conscious, and it had been all Finch could do just to plough through the speech he'd prepared. He'd given John the account number; John had taken it (without comment); it had all gone reasonably well. But he'd felt exhausted, afterwards. So, instead of the bedroom, he'd headed to The Coronet.

And now he was staring at the bookcase. The bookcase that hid a door to his bedroom. Fleetingly, he wondered if Reese had been in there since that night. Probably not. Reese would have told him, Finch was sure of it. He would have - he would have said something about finding the linen closet, or something of that kind.

Finch sighed. Reese. He'd left so quickly, the day before.

Suddenly, Finch heard the unmistakeable sound of Reese and Bear coming through the library hallway. He looked up, and there was Reese, juggling two paper cups, a pastry box, and Bear's leash.

Finch rushed forward to help him. He managed to grab one of the cups before it tipped over, and a spill was avoided. Meanwhile, Bear circled them, and effectively tied them up with his leash.

"Ah." Finch said, flustered.

Reese quickly dropped his end of the leash, but not before they'd brushed up against each other. Not before Finch had felt Reese's warm muscles through the fabric of his suit.

Reese coughed.

Once they'd settled down at the table, and Bear had settled down in his doggie bed, Finch took a sip of his tea. "Thank you for the tea, Mr. Reese," he said.

Reese bit into a danish, and looked at Finch expectantly.

Finch raised an eyebrow in response.

"What's our new number, Finch?" Reese asked.

Bwuh? "We haven't gotten a new number today, Mr. Reese."

Reese cocked his head in that way he did when something wasn't right. "I got a call this morning. Phone rang, couldn't make out the words, but sounded just like the The Machine."

"So you came here."


"I see. Well... we don't have a new number."

1. The return of Finch POV is even more amazing than I could have hoped (P.S. I assume you know you're ridiculous, but his first line is perfect, if you changed it angels would weep) and I love their entire conversation. Their entire agonizing, wonderful conversation -- I freaked out in tandem with Finch when Reese said the thing about needing a break, and then, no, I can't even. HE WANTS THEM TO BE ON EVEN GROUND. Finch, you have the most beautiful intentions and will you please kiss him now?

2. SEEMINGLY, NO. Even though Bear and the Machine are both clearly on my side in this -- two out of two non-human family members agree you're perfect for each other, guys, you should look into that! But I forgive them because their faces. Their flustered, impossible faces, OMG.

they're just hopeless, though. Reese has just spent his entire life convinced that no one else could possibly want what he wants. It's like... like his entire life is built on the idea that he's not allowed to ask for something. He's only allowed to have what people will offer.

And Finch. It would never even occur to Finch that anyone would ever want him for anything more than his money or his brain. Finch thinks... Finch thinks he's useful to people. He doesn't think people care about him.

Sometimes, Finch takes his clothes off at night, and catches sight of himself, and then he thinks of Reese's smooth, compact muscles, and he just... feels scarred, and old, and he can't help thinking of Reese's James Bond-like former career, in which Reese must have... he probably ended up drugged and seduced many times before (don't think about a drugged and seduced 25-year-old John Reese. Don't.) Finch thinks - what happened between Reese and himself - maybe it was nothing to Reese. Maybe he's just... blasé about it. He probably doesn't even care.

Like I said: hopeless. Just hopeless.

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

Come on, with what Veronica do in daily basis it's no wonder if someone would want to get rid of her. Now it's up to Finch and Reese to protect her. But can they keep their secret a secret from the nosy teenage investigator?

Finch promised to call if a number did come in, and Reese left, Bear in tow.

Sunlight did its best to shine through the dusty windows, and Finch drank the last of his tea.

Then he took a deep breath, and opened the door to the bedroom.


A number came in the next morning. Severin Sheffied, 14, student at the Owlsgate Academy in New Hampshire.

Reese was surprised. "A boarding school. That's a new one. Didn't know they had murders in boarding schools." Although... "Unless it's another suicide case. Think it's another suicide case, Finch?"

"I shouldn't like to hypothesize ahead of the facts, Mr. Reese."

Reese immediately set out to take photos of the unfortunate (and unfortunately named) Severin Sheffield. It would take his a few hours to get to the boarding school, which would allow Finch to create an identity for him.

Owlsgate Academy was in the middle of the woods, near a small village called Meadow. It housed less than a thousand boys and girls, of middle school and high school ages.

After the first hour's drive, Finch called. "You will be passing yourself off as a National Geographic photographer doing a piece on New England, Mr. Reese."

Reese couldn't help feeling a thrill as he heard Finch's voice through the comm. It had been so long. He heard Finch throw Bear his ball, and decided to keep comm channel open as he drove.

It was nearly lunchtime. The roads were getting progressively smaller, and the trees started to outnumber the humans. Reese stopped off for lunch, and to purchase some clothes. He had a sneaking suspicion that National Geographic photographers did not wear suits.

"Gotta tell you, Finch, it's been a long time since I've done field work in an actual field."

Soon enough, Reese finally got a visual on the new number.

"Unfortunately, Mr. Reese, a visual is all we have for now. I can get access to all the computers in Owlsgate Academy, but I have no way of knowing which one belongs to Severin Sheffield."

Reese found Mr. Sheffield was sitting below a willow tree, reading a dogeared copy of "Huh. Look at that: Seamus Heaney. Didn't know teenagers read poetry."

"Did they not teach you to read at your alma mater, Mr. Reese?"

Reese snorted. "Nah. My high school thought reading was dangerous. It might have led to independent thought." He looked through his lens at Severin Scheffield. "Finch, this kid looks terrible."
