Person of Interest: Hamartia (the hero's fatal flaw) by astolat
Summary: "We're not looking to make friends, Harold," John said. "We want our neighbors to classify us and then avoid us. Being the scandalous gay couple down the street is a good option."
Reccer's Notes: The first fic that came to my mind for this round, this is an absolute delight of a fic in which John and Harold go on the run with a slightly older Leila (the toddler they canonicaly accidentaly aquired to protect her in that one episode) and it is a treasure of a forced curtain!fic and chosen familly under pressure and all the growing intimacy of pretending to be a couple for a case and all the emotional upheavals and self-sacrifce one can expect from John and Harold in such a situation. And plot of course, because this is Astolat.

An old favorite.

Person of Interest: Losing Control by Neery
Summary: "It's got to be some messed-up new designer drug," Carter said.
Reccer's Notes: The sex pollen (or in this case non-consensual drug use, to fit the fandom) is not the main event of the story, but rather the trigger, and this in a lovely case fic and get-together, very in-character for both of them as they would rather eat their feelings that talk about whatever happened. ^^

Person of Interest: Five Times Shaw and Finch Weren't On the Same Page (...) by Dien
Summary: A lot of disagreeing (and some agreeing) between Shaw and Finch, over things like holiday elf costumes, torture, and dignity.
Reccer's Notes: A very fun fic. I enjoyed Shaw's point of view a lot, her banter with Harold and riling up of Reese, her unemotional takes on the situations and how it stays very in character even when the fic flirt a bit with crack, but also the evolution of the bonds between the three of them through the five times.. I'm not 100% sold on some bits of characterization, but the fic is fun and well worth the read!

Person of interest: By Your Name by Hagar & JinkyO
Summary: [ADMIN] Have a little faith, Nathan.
[INGRAM, Nathan C.] In you, or in the machine?

[REESE] When you find that one person who connects you to the world, you become someone different, someone - better. When that person is taken from you, who’d you become then?
Reccer's Notes: This is an incredible experimental fanfic that was meant for a podfic. Sure, you can read it, but the audio take it to a new level, as the story is told through the Machine logs and is a mix of voices recording, but also digitaly generated readings that fit incredibly well with the themes of the show, and makes clear that the "narrator" is indeed the Machine. The build-up is clever and thoughtfull, and layered, and it is a must-read/ must-listen type of story.

Person of Interest: Hamartia (the hero's fatal flaw) by astolat
Summary: "We're not looking to make friends, Harold," John said. "We want our neighbors to classify us and then avoid us. Being the scandalous gay couple down the street is a good option."
Reccer's Notes: Look, I have a clear weakness for undercover in suburbia, it's true. This is a slow burn action-adventure with with a two year old and it's great.

Person of Interest: Threads by KRyn
Summary: "When we were forced to abandon the Library, I managed to destroy any digital trace of our activities that might offer a means to track us, even in our new identities. Nonetheless, we left behind a treasure trove of clues that offered certain... investigatory options for Samaritan to pursue. I thought it best to keep an eye open."

In the fourth season opener, Greer queries Samaritan as to the status of its efforts to hunt down Finch and Company. The response--'ongoing.' "Threads" is a series of short stories, each chapter a stand-alone, exploring some of the ways Samaritan might attempt to draw our heroes out of hiding.
Reccer's Notes: Wonderful story, wonderful characterization, and 100% better plotwise than anything the show came up with about Samaritain hunting Team Machine. A Must-Read.

Person of Interest: Fealty, by Astolat
Summary: "The only promise I will make you is that having found you, I will go to almost any lengths you care to name to keep you."
Reccer's Notes: One could argue that the whole of John's and Harold relationship is canonicaly built on John's loyakty kink : he wants to do good, he wants to be able to trust. And once he has found his purpose of helping the numbers his loyably to Harold is total and he would gladly die for him.
But when he is taken by Kara, he doesn't expect -or want- Harold to come after him.
I love the focus on the action at the begining of the fic, the worry and then all of Harold's quiet and formidable competence bent to only one goal: getting John back. The loyalty is underliyng all along, unspoken and just there... until it isn't any more, and they acknowledge it, and the fact that it goes both way.

Person of Interest - A Really Private Person, by Astolat
Summary: The end of the world started on a Wednesday in March.
Reccer's Notes: A favorite that I reread from time to time. It's a wonderful AU, where the Machine predict a greater threat than ever expected, and Harold (and John) are forced out of the shadows in order to save the world. As always with Astolat's writting the plot is tight and John's voice is perfect. I also love how Harold is quietly ultracompetent once he decides to act, and the way John works around him to make it possible and keep him safe. The dynamics between them are great.

Person of Interest: The Dragster Wave, by Arasi
Summary: none provided for the vid; vid associated with a fic titled Turing Test, with the following summary:

История об искусственном интеллекте, безусловной преданности и эволюции.

Тест Тьюринга - эмпирический тест, идея которого была предложена Аланом Тьюрингом в статье "Вычислительные машины и разум". Изначальная формулировка условий теста: "Человек взаимодействует с одним компьютером и одним человеком. На основании ответов на вопросы он должен определить, с кем он разговаривает: с человеком или компьютерной программой. Задача компьютерной программы — ввести человека в заблуждение, заставив сделать неверный выбор".

Текст написан в соавторстве с Arasi
Reccer's Notes: You don't need to read Russian, or read the fic. While that may well enhance the experience, the vid recently burned through the non-Russian-speaking section of the fandom no problem. It's just a damn good vid. You don't even need to know anything about the fandom. It just works.

Additionally, though the creator rates it as T, I would like to note nothing shown is beyond - say - what would be acceptable in an episode of Power Rangers, which is s PG-rated show.

Person of Interest: Love And Marriage by astolat
Summary: "Harold," John said, "are you asking me to marry you for your money?"

"Well, Mr. Reese," Harold said, "given how much of it you've spent already, I don't really see how you can complain."
Reccer's Notes: So in character you'll want to cry.

Person of Interest: A disposition to be generous or helpful; goodwill by Astolat
Summary: "Yes," Grace says, "but I'm sorry, I don't really want to talk about that now. Please tell me, is Harold alive?"
Reccer's Notes: While Astolat shows us very clearly a Grace that Finch could not help but love, the core of the story is her skew and clear of each of the people she encounters: Root, who cannot threaten her; John, who calls out a vast pity and a fear for him; Finch, at whom she expects to be very angry for a very long time; and, briefly, The Machine:
He says, "I built a system — for the government, originally. A machine. It can — " He stops, and she has the sense that there's a story here, a story he's told before, often enough that it's the story his tongue wants to tell, but it's not the real story; and then he says abruptly, "It can think. It's — "

"Alive?" she says, wonderingly. He nods once, and now she does understand, of course. It's terrifying and a vast relief at the same time: she can forgive him.

What kind of a woman finds that a reason to forgive a man for abandoning her?

The kind of woman who can pull two oblivious, fearful men into what looks to be a long, painful, but eventually healing relationship.

Author rec: medie (multifandom)
Reccer's Notes: You may have noticed by now that I'm extremely polyfannish. I love fanfic, and although I tend to gravitate towards (and away from) certain fandoms, ultimately the quality of writing is much more important to me than what fandom it is. You may also notice that I love awesome women. medie is awesome and just what I like--lots of great fic in lots of fandoms, and lots of awesome women. Also, there can never be enough well-written genderswap in the world, and medie does that too. I've only recced a few of her fics here, but there are so many more great ones you should check out.

Person of Interest: Ring by Speranza
Summary: A phone rang. Finch stilled, head tilted, listening. The pay phone was housed on top of a low grey metal stand in front of the corner deli. Instinctively, Reese glanced up and saw the red glowing eye of the camera. Finch had already started for the phone, but Reese put a hand on his shoulder.

"It's for me," Reese said.
Reccer's Notes: Reese tries to ignore it but the machine is a meddling meddler. (Matchmaking, Person of Interest style. Adorable.)

Person of Interest: Damaged by KaticaLocke
Summary: What happens when Reese can’t be in two places at once? Tough choices and tragedy bring Finch and Reese together, but will Mark Snow and the CIA tear them apart? How much damage can two men survive?
Reccer's Notes: I'm going to start off by saying mind the warnings: this story includes torture and its aftermath (although the details can be skipped over without getting lost).

This story is just so excellent it's hard to describe. The main plot is compelling, Lionel is amazing, and if you're interested in the Machine and where its plot could go, it plays a huge part in this. If you like the show, and don't mind dark themes, you will love this fic.

Person of Interest: Hell, High Water and Amnesia by Maekala
Summary: Following an explosion, Reese loses parts of memory including everything to do with Finch and the Machine. Not sure who to trust, John evades the FBI, CIA and Carter as he attempts to remember who he's become and why he's drawn to this strange man with a limp.
Reccer's Notes: This is exactly it says on the tin: John loses his memory and has to survive long enough to remember who he can trust. It has an excellent Reese POV, and lets us see who Reese is when most of him is stripped away.

Person of Interest: The Silenus Club by Speranza
Summary: "I won't insult you by explaining the nature of the club," Harold said in a low voice.
Reccer's Notes: It's a classic Pretend Couple trope, Undercover In a Gay Bar! Though as you might expect, with Finch involved, this becomes Undercover In An Exclusive Secret Private Club. They have a case that takes them there, but by the end, much more is revealed than just a perpetrator. I love Reese's POV voice, determined and reaching out, eager as always to test his boundaries and find his place with Finch (not to mention a flash of his fierce and angry protectiveness); I love Finch's reactions, gentle and careful and startled. They're a damaged and secretive pair for whom a few muttered words say volumes, and this case gives them opportunities to get past a new layer of their self-protective shells.
