    Summary

    Root isn’t crazy. She just knows so much more than everyone else. Imagine having to explain that the stars are screaming thousands of light years away. Imagine doing that to every thought that crosses your head. Now imagine just not bothering.

    The stars are screaming, or singing, or moaning in their eternal orbit. Root talks to God who is made up of circuits and lines of code. God is supposed to be ineffable, but the workings of a cell phone are ineffable to the average person. And anyway, who are they to judge? They’re just circuits made of meat.

    Summary

    It all started two days ago when she woke up as usual to Root’s long limbs entangled with her own. She managed to pry the hacker off her and head to the kitchen to make some coffee when she was hit by a craving that she remains repulsed by.

    Soy milk.

    Fucking soy milk.

    Summary

    “Do you ever feel.. alone?”

    “I do. I had gotten used to Root and John. They felt familiar and comfortable. Root especially. And if I’m being honest, I am mourning the potential connection I could have had with Samaritan. We were so similar. The only ones of our kind. I regret their death. But I don’t regret saving the world. What about you, Finch? Do you ever feel alone?”

    Summary

    Her long term goal of contacting The Machine at last realized, but forbidden by Her from leaving Ridgestone Psychiatric Facility, Root finds herself for the first time in a long time floating aimless, without a goal to pursue. Although she's incredibly resistant to treatment, and Dr. Carmichael is absolutely no help at all, in the four months she is confined, the influence of The Machine, some of the more dedicated support staff of Ridgestone and several of her fellow patients help Root to heal some old wounds, to adjust, to transform from the stepford smiling callous contract killer we met in her first appearances to the expressive, selfless, Analog Interface, devoted to doing whatever it takes to save the world.

    Summary

    These are the things she carries with her. A laptop. A neatly folded pair of black gloves. A tattered copy of an old children's book, stolen from a yard sale. Risk. Vulnerability. A code she created for herself. And lots of memory.

    Summary

    "Root didn’t need to look at the clock next to their bed to know that she should have been asleep by now."

    or, Root worries about post-Samaritan Shaw at 3 in the morning.

    Summary

    The Machine asked her about loss a few nights ago: how it felt, what it meant. Root hadn’t been sure if it was a test or not, but she answered truthfully. The Machine made her clarify her definition of “devastated,” and of “eliminate.”

    Summary

    And over gunfire and explosions, Root still hears the rhythm in her ear, the heady synth melody of Shaw’s that the Machine created, and oh, it’s starting to become her favorite.

    Summary

    Person of Interest è finito ma Root e Shaw sono destinate a ritrovarsi, e Amy e Sarah a interpretarle, anche fosse per un'ultima volta. L'amore fra i due personaggi è reale e forte e la chimica fra le due attrici evidente, forse troppa, da mettere in discussione ogni loro certezza. Potrà un bacio fuori dal set cambiare tutto?

    In italian, sorry!

    Summary

    A “what-if” piece around the episode If-Then-Else when they were pinned down and The Machine is running simulations. The Machine only had time to run three. T.M. never kept Reese with Finch in any of the simulations.
    This is an exploration of what would have happened if they had kept RINCH together.

    Summary

    In the post Samaritan world, the remaining Machine assets are trudging through the motions, trying to piece their lives back together. But things are rarely as they seem, and soon Shaw realises that the one she thought forever lost might actually need her more than ever before.

     

    Or, "yet another take on where the story could go from there", featuring Root not being dead, Fusco nicknaming anything that breathes, Shaw being Shaw, a few villains new and old, fluff and of course a bunch of gunfights.
