oh look, it's all those feels I had back when you were talking about how used to just tuning out everything he wants Reese is and how amazingly little from Finch it would take to basically make his entire life -- except now they're stronger


POI AU, Finch & Reese

In which Harold Finch is a ten year old genius (or whatever age you want him to be) who hired Reese to work the numbers with him as well as protecting him from government agents who will do anything to capture him and handed him to CIA or Division.
Reese is understandably confused and a bit reluctant at first to accept a job offer from a ten year old billionaire with thick glasses. The boy is too mature for his age and Reese get protective of him eventually.

Finch/Reese, POI AU, hurt!Reese, angst, happy endings

Nathan is always trying to fix Harold up, to no avail. Harold has no time or interest in a relationship, thank you very much - he's too busy and besides he's never found anyone he felt was anything other than fake and after his money.

Then he sees his new neighbour - the strong, silent (and sexy as hell type) that is John Reese. He's in a wheelchair, his leg all strapped up, and Harold can see from a mile away (Reese hides it well but Harold is very good at seeing through levels of code) that the man has been severely broken.

At first all he wants to do is befriend John, because he notices no one comes to see him. But eventually he realises he has more than a platonic interest in the man, and starts to try and court him. The problem is that John has trust issues about forty miles wide, but this makes Harold all the more determined to look after him and fix whatever has hurt John and try to help him realise that just because things were bad, they can be better now.

Bonus if Finch gets his police friends Carter and Fusco to look into Reese's history and find out he is hiding from his abusive boyfriend Mark Snow and together they try to find a way to protect John from him.

Reese got out and went back to the bed and breakfast.

He didn't know what had just happened. It was like seeing those kids and their passion had created a fracture somewhere inside Reese, and now two years' worth of pent-up longing had started pouring out, pouring out, pouring out.

Disturbed, Reese sat down and meditated.

Then he went back to work.


Having now done everything he could about surveillance inside the school, Reese only had the outside left to busy himself.

And it was just as well, because something about the school grounds niggled at him. He couldn't really put his finger on it. It just... Bothered him.

He went out into the woods just as the sun went down, and started walking in concentric circles, ignoring the paths. He didn't know what he was looking for, and walked slowly, keeping a mental tally of every kind of tree, every species of wildlife, and sketching a map of the paths sinewing between the trees.

"Mr. Reese?"

Finch's voice was unexpected, and Reese's heart lurched.

"Mr. Reese, while I admire the skill with which you magically went in and out of Owlsgate undetected today, I would like to remind you that we are here because someone is in mortal danger. So please be just as careful while you're in the woods??

"Sure." Reese managed to whisper. Finch's voice was... But he didn't have time to think about this now. He really didn't.

He cut the phone connection and forced himself to get his shit together. He focused. He kept walking through the trees and the undergrowth, using every skill he'd ever learned about tracking in the woods. (Those skills were seriously out of practice, he realized - he didn't exactly get many chances to work on his wilderness survival in New York.)

He walked for hours. He had infrared goggles but the moon was shining so brightly that he barely needed them. The moonlight was so bright, in fact, that the trilliums under the trees were shining like tiny white beacons, lighting his way.

Reese was crouching down over the flowers, distracted and sentimental, when he heard them.


He put on his goggles so no one would see his eyes, and opened a channel for Finch to hear as much as possible. And soon, he saw them.

Two men were walking up the path and talking. Two men Reese recognized, in fact. He knew them. They worked for Elias. They were suspected of drug trafficking. Holy shit.

"Little shit said 2am. It's fucking 2am. What, like we've nothing else to do?" The first man said.

"Calm the fuck down, Larry. Don't get all worked up. Little shit is jumpy enough as it is without you getting worked up." The second man said, looking tired;

"Motherfucker, don't tell me what emotions to have. Do I tell you what emotions to have? No I do not." He pulled at a loose thread on his sweater. "I don't like waiting ok? Fuck."

Larry and No Name Yet went on bickering until a slight, pale figure appeared in the distance.

"Sorry I'm late," Rob Little said.

No Name Yet answered quietly. "Never mind that. What've you got for us?"

Rob pulled a large package out from under his hoodie. "Three new samples in there." Then he handed them a tiny slip of paper. "And you'll find the usual order here."

"Alright, kid." Larry pocketed the slip of paper. "And we got you covered right here." He said, throwing a fat envelope at Rob. "Just don't be late next time, okay?"

"Yeah, okay." Rob nodded, and backed away, only turning his back once they were out of sight.


Reese followed the men for a good half mile until he saw No Name Yet crouch down near an enormous tree.

"Come on, come on, can we get out of here, please?" Larry griped.

No Name rolled his eyes, but soon they were walking away with about a dozen tightly-wrapped packets.

The minute they were gone, Reese crouched down at the same spot. He dug around. This would be a great time to get lucky... And sure enough, buried a bit too far under a root, he got lucky: he found a packet.

oh, bb, and it's only going to get worse. He's gotten to the point where he can't sublimate everything anymore, but he hasn't stopped to think about what it means. Like he's got some kind of emotion flood going on but he isn't anywhere near acknowledging that he's in love, never mind thinking about what he wants Finch to do to him. Like maybe sometimes he has flashes of it - flashes of Finch's voice coming through the phone line, telling him what to do with him clothes, and where to put his hands. And sometimes he remembers bits about That Night. He remembers when Finch brushes past him, and Reese can smell him, and it wafts over him and then in those moments he barely restrains from bending down and nuzzling Finch. And most of all, Reese remembers when Finch takes his glasses off, and he has an urge to hold him. But really those are just little tiny flashes and they all just slip away a quickly as they came because Reese has to Get Back To Work because he thinks he's only as valuable as the work he can do.

OH MY GOSH REESE GETTING DISTRACTED BY FLOWERS. After trying so hard to get a hold of himself, too. Also I'm inordinately charmed by Larry not wanting to be told what to feel? But OMG.

I was coping very admirably with this comment until I got to the very last line, and then my heart shattered into 100000 small pieces. It hurts because it's so obviously true, he so thinks that. Augh, Reese.

Jessica's husband is possessed by a demon, that's why he's been abusing her but nobody know that. The demon left Jessica's husband's body shortly before Reese supposedly ambushed him to maim and torture for revenge. Now the demon is back and it has decided to play a deadly game with Reese and Finch. Can Reese and Finch figure the supernatural soon enough to level the playing field?

It's just chance, but Elias is in a bar watching to see if one of his lieutenants is on the take (because sometimes you just have to see to things yourself) when he sees Reese. He knows something is wrong with him straight off - looking like he's drunk but not really, and the guy he's with is practically pawing him in a private booth. Despite their opposite paths, Elias respects Reese and he can't stand there and watch this. So he intervenes, forcing the stranger to admit to drugging Reese. Elias drags Reese out of there, and puts him in a hotel room. He stays long enough to make sure Reece is out of danger, and then calls Finch to come and get him.

And then sends two of his guys to go after Reese's would be rapist.

Finch in not so many words, and without telling Reese, promise Elias a get of out jail free card in thanks for saving John.

do you know, I truly enjoyed writing the dialogue for Larry and No Name Yet. In my mind, they're like Herc and Carv from The Wire. Sort of. They're dangerous, but they wouldn't hurt Rob, and they'll be straightforward and honest with him. And they want to be good at their jobs. But they bicker like it's going out of style, and they're not always detail-oriented. Well, Larry isn't, anyway.

In other news, I've lost the ability to write Finch POV. Reese has just broken into his bedroom, and nothing's happening. Send help.

Finch/Reese, Finch + Reese - 5 times people got the wrong idea about them and one time they didn't

(Anonymous) 2013-07-18 05:28 am (UTC)(link)
5 plus one - five times people wrongly assumed that Finch is screwing John. Maybe they see him do little possessive things, like brushing John down after he gets up from a fight, or adjusting his collar. Like Finch cooking for them, or vice versa. Like Finch's tension levels when he's waiting for news that John is ok, or when John is not ok and Finch is going to get him. Like when Logan or Root or anybody casts a considering eye in Reece's direction and Harold sort of gets in the way, staking ownership like it's his job.

And the plus one, they weren't before, and everyone is finally convinced they got it wrong, when the boys do actually get together.
