Damn it, John! Get out of my head!

I think I'm writing a crossover. POI and SGA. God help us all.

Imagine, if you will, the combined intellect of Rodney McKay and Harold Finch. Just think about what kind of mischief Reese and Sheppard could make. Oh dear god. I shudder to think what kind of trouble the four of them could get into. Plus the snark factor would be to the Nth degree.

DAMN IT! I was NOT going to do this, I was resisting, I was sticking my fingers in my ears and yelling LALALALALALALA... and then I started wondering what would happen if a certain number came up...

I am reasonably certain that Reese would have the gene, I just have a *feeling*.

Also, just as a point of note, I blame esteefee. It is all her fault, with her sultry little POI fics, being all flirty and come-hither and beckoning me to the dark side.

I am waiting, not so patiently, to see what YOU come up with. Because I KNOW you want to. Can't you hear Finch in your brain? Give in - he's got your number!

I don't give a whip for SGA, but hey! You might be writing in a fandom I DO give a whip about! I AM SO EXCITED! It's been ages!

(And I know enough about the SGA characters through fannish osmosis that I will be just fine, and enjoy the crossover possibilities. Hee!)

HEE! I am SO SAD that SGA is not your thing, but alas, not everyone shares my taste. I AM HAPPY you like POI! EEEEE!

And dude, how much you want to bet that Finch was a Red File? And that the Centre is involved/behind "Control"? AND OMG! What if *JAROD'S* number came up? He doesn't HAVE a number! What would the machine do?

I can tell you the whole reason I started watching POI was because I thought it would have been an awesome vehicle for Flanigan, and I can't help but see the POI/McShep possibilities. So I've been toying with a fusion story in my head for a while now. Come, drink the Kool-aid with me! :-)

Sorry, but I speak English while everyone only speaks in cryptic strings of initials these days. I'm going to learn conversational Gaelic so's I can leave folks in my dust :)

YOU are SO NOT HELPING! Don't think I didn't see you over there, playing the the POI pool, I did see you!

Just haven't read it yet. EVIL I tell you.

What, who me? Nah, you're seeing things. And stuff.

But this is kinda perfect, you have to admit. You have things to do! (Rodney would be extra puzzled by Reese's low voice and firm handshake: "What? What? What did he say? Sheppard! John... help me translate what this Neaderthal is trying to say. Ow!")

*snort*

"Rodney, how many times do I have to tell you it's not a good idea to insult people who can break you?" John says mildly, while moving closer to Reese, body language clearly communicating that breakage had better not be on the list of activities. "You'll have to pardon Dr. McKay. He skipped kindergarten and still stuggles with basic social graces."

Yeah, right.....you need us to be the excuse to 'go with it', LOL!

John knows when and where he want to play, LOL!

Yeah BOTH John's as a matter of fact.

*facepalm*

It's going to be interesting writing a meeting between those two.

I am still recovering from the last poi episode, which I hearted so bad. Have fun with the man in the suit, Finch and the lads.

I hadn't been checking LJ much but Phil told me I had to read this entry after I asked him to help me with music for the FAWM song I had written yesterday - about Person of Interest! Your note even says "if a certain number comes up" and that's what my song is about, but fron within the show. See http://fawm.org/songs/7274/.

I look forward to reading your crossover.

OMG DUDE YOU WROTE A POI SONG!

I played it for my daughter last night - we both thought that was awesome!

Also? I'd by quite delighted to be rescued by the dashing and dangerous man in the suit - but I'd be quite happy to be saved by the brains of the op as well. Finch is pretty adorable in his dorky, fastidious way.

I hope you enjoy the story when it's finally done.

So glad you and your daughter liked it. Let me know if you want chords. I hadn't found any other POI songs; I take it you hadn't either.

I agree that Finch is the more interesting character, and appealing in his own way, but I couldn't think of a way to present him in song that didn't require considerable familiarity with the show. I figured my song only required a passing knowledge of the concept, or a very short explanation. That's easier in filk circles since no one can watch everything on TV and still have a life.

Love to see you try FAWM next year, or 50/90 this summer. I really struggle to write songs; at least FAWM helps me write a few, and get some kind feedback on FAWM.

I miss SGA, wish it were still on. POI just keeps getting better.

Isn't it that, exactly? I miss SGA so much - I really love my boys. But POI - yeah, it's really hitting me where I live. John and Harold are not John and Rodney, but the buddy dynamic and the saving other people and the saving each other - yeah. There is no bad.

Also - POPPY DOG! EEEE!

I suspect that John Sheppard and Reese will got along famously, and McKay and Finch - well, possibly Rodney's big brain may have just met his match. The only thing that could possibly make it better is figuring out a way for Tony Stark to be involved...

omg, the addition of Bear this season - pure genius! I love what Bear's interactions with Reese and Finch bring to the show! ♥
