    Summary

    “Harold, your tea is going to over-boil soon.”

    “John?” Harold whispered, even though he knew it was impossible.

    “I thought hearing his voice would be soothing for you.” The world fell away beneath Harold and he closed his eyes.

    “You don’t get to use his voice.”

    Summary

    One Shot: Taking Place in between Episode 10 "Number Crush" and Episode 11 "Super" of Season one. It's a missing part, if you will. Rinch (Harold Finch/John Reese)

    In this strange tale, we will witness what would have happened if Carter had never followed John down the stairs and Harold was the one tasked with helping John and saving his life. Mark Snow hunts them down and they end up in a morgue... Where everything shall change.

    “Where are we?” John crocked out brokenly, guilt woven in his tone. “In the city Morgue, Mr. Reese.” Harold sounded as wrecked as John himself was feeling. “What an irony… Don’t you think? It’s the right place for me to be. I am a dead man walking after all. A dead man who keeps cheating death. And sooner or later my debt will get paid.” Harold raised an annoyed eyebrow at him. “Is this going somewhere or should I lower your dose of morphine?” John blinked in evident surprise, but relented and forced his mind to clear.
    “You do not belong in a morgue Harold. You shouldn’t have come.”
    “I once told you, Mr. Reese, that we are both dead in the eyes of the world. So, permit my intervention but I believe this is exactly where I belong. Right here, with you.”

    Summary

    my friend and I were discussing one of my favorite shows (spacemutineer also happens to be my favorite fic writer for this series) and they encouraged me to write something about them. This is that attempt :) and it’s not a very plotty fic, mostly character study, a coda for how they bridged the gap from being co-workers who relied on each other to friends who trusted each other completely. This would take place sometime early on in season one after John was shot but before Carter and Fusco are a trusted part of the team; maybe circa Wolf and Cub when John is still having Fusco try and find out about Finch and Finch is still very secretive about his past.

    Title from “break my fall” by doc robinson
    It’s out of my hands and over my head
    whether i go or whether you stay
    but we’ll still ache either way
    first i pull you in then i push you away
    i give so high i fall on my blade
    but i don’t know another way

    Summary

    "The summer heat had settled over New York weeks ago, and while crimes of passion had spiked with the temperature, premeditated attacks had dropped off while people took shelter and tried to conserve energy. There hadn’t been a number in days, something that caused Reese both to pace restlessly while trying to encourage Finch to take a break."

    It's supposed to be an easy day. No one counts on Reese being taken by a previous number's enemies.

    Summary

    It takes time and stressful circumstances for Finch and Reese to comprehend just how much they could mean to each other. Feelings are dangerous. Then again, nearly everything they do is dangerous.

    When he was forced to do so, Finch didn’t just break people, the way Reese did. No, Finch destroyed them, if need be. To protect the things in this life that Finch held dear, he could and would stop at nothing.

    Summary

    'No. You stay away. Don't even risk it.'

    Finch felt tears pool in his eyes and forced himself to hold them back. He honestly hoped that was merely an attempt on Mr. Reese's part to keep him safe and that he didn't believe even for a second that Finch would be willing to turn around while the person who had given him hope again was captured or even killed.
