I woke up with this fic half written in my head after I spent most of last night torturing myself by reading more fan reviews -- never has any ep been so universally hated on -- and then finding promo pics and an extended preview and then this video on CBS Press.com.

Spoilers ahead. )
aprilvalentine: (Reese and Finch outside)
I went to our Maryland State Fair on Saturday with my good friend, [profile] tiranog and of course we spent a lot of time talking about Reese and Finch attending such a fair, what would bring them there, what they'd be wearing and how they'd react to the rides, the food and everything. This fic is the result.

aprilvalentine: (Reese and Finch after ecstasy)
Well, I got home from work, totally wasted as usual. I can barely move when I get out of there lately and it really gets to me, even only doing four hours. And I was so tired I just vegged out on the couch and finally realized it was already after midnight. I then spent awhile trying to upload some pics to photobucket, which took time since my Firefox and it don't get along. Finally switched to using Safari and that went better. So here, instead of an actual word post, is a nice little pic I made, Reese symbolically protecting Finch.

On the POI Discussion Forum, there has been a lot of discussion about how the "Core Four" are the center of the show and how the addition of new characters could lessen the importance of the original cast members, mainly Carter and Fusco. I have always felt that the term "core four" is a fanon title, never used by the show runners. Never have all four characters appeared in a scene together or worked a case totally together except for "Til Death" this season and they weren't all in the same room at once in that one either. [profile] mamahub posted that she feels the show really has a "core duo" in Reese and Finch and that the rest of the show revolves around them. I agreed. Several posts ensued saying that other actors could come in, play other characters and the premise of the show would survive. I felt this was a fallacious argument to try to prove there isn't a core four. Why say the two leads aren't necessary to refute that claim? Why not say, "no the other two are equally important?" Anyway, after a post or two, I was asked the following:

* What makes Reese and Finch core?
* Are they core simply because they are Reese and Finch or are they core because they occupy positions that are essential to the premise of the show according to the introduction?
* What is essential to the mission now? The person of Reese and Finch or the positions they hold?

Here's what I answerd. I thought it would make a good post about how I feel about the show and the characters.

aprilvalentine: (Finch thinking of Reese)
The main thing I want to do with this post is to spread the word about a great new comm for Reese/Finch fans: Rinchy Safenest
The mod is [profile] tiranog and she's a fannish veteran, like me, who's fallen hard for POI and Reese and Finch. The comm looks beautiful and I'm hoping lots of fans will join and start to participate!

Also, there's a new comm for POI on DW: Point Of Interest Chat.
This one is moderated by [personal profile] orockthro and [profile] sarcastarista. It's already shaping up to be really fun!
