Country: USA

Hello, I’m Kelly and I am currently looking for a penpal. The idea of having someone to talk to via snailmail is just an idea I adore so much! A little about me is I am a Capricorn, my mbti is INTP, my favorite places include Libraries, Museums and Art Galleries. I enjoy running, yoga, tea tasting, the smell of petrichor, harry potter and practicing buddhism. I love traveling, going on adventures, listening to and making playlists, as well as baking, painting with watercolor and watching Star Wars.

Preferences: I would like my penpal to be my age. But 20+ is okay with me too.

The Diamond Kingdom is rule by a republic of wealthy merchant families. The wealthiest and most powerful are Bonnefoys. The family heads are twins Francis and Françoise. They enjoy gossiping, fashion, art, and wine tasting Everything to them has a price with the exception of love. While they are shallow they are die hard romantics and often test other suitors in outrageous challenges like in fairy tales and smut novels. Despite the trials  they present they have and overwhelming number of suitors and affairs.

Before Arthur is found by Amelia and become Queen of Spades. He was an orphan that was sold off at the age of 10 to be servant to the twins being a present after fencing accident Frances had with there last servant. (Rumors say that it wasn’t even an accident that maybe Frances was just bored.)  

In this pic: They are invited by the second wealthiest family the Zwingil’s  (Vash and Elise) for a two week vacation.

I get a little bit Genghis Khan. I don’t want you to get it on

With nobody else but me…

i don’t ship any other variation of toriel/asgore but this au is ruining my LIFE

anonymous asked:

hi! could you please list some good books about art history?

I can certainly tell you what I’ve enjoyed reading. My taste is certainly bent toward a mid-century, neo-romantic view of art rather than anything more current so I provide these recommendations with that caveat.

The Meaning of Art by Herbert Read - a series of essays focused on appreciation rather than critique / analysis

The Story of Art by EH Gombrich - he engages you with his love of art and draws a thread of genius through the whole of art history

Museum Without Walls by Jonathan Meades - Jonathan Meades is probably the person who shaped my world view more than anyone else and this book is a neat collection of his work

Modernism by Peter Gay - makes post-modernism look boring and serene

Playing to the Gallery by Grayson Perry - one of my favourite artists writes about the art world in the 2010s and who is defining art

Romantic Moderns and Weatherland by Alexandra Harris - just beautiful writing about my favourite period of British art and my favourite subject matter of British art.

Civilisation by Kenneth Clark - this is the script of the documentary series he made and it moved me to tears more than once

The Signs as Art Movements

(Check your Venus, too. It rules our tastes and the art we enjoy!)

Aries: Abstract Expressionism. Rebellious, pioneering and independent artists like Pollock led this movement; like Aries, this style is highly energetic, vibrant and powerful. 

Taurus: Art Nouveau. The sweeping brushstrokes and detailed craftsmanship of Art Nouveau enliven our world with delicate beauty, which appeals to Taurus’ exquisite aesthetic.

Gemini: Surrealism. The surprising, witty imagery and juxtapositions of Surrealism, how its ideas and themes all have dual meanings, is well suited for the Twins of the Zodiac.

Cancer: Expressionism. This subjective style focuses on interpreting the emotional spectrum through art, which the highly intuitive and emotive Crab of the Zodiac understands perfectly.

Leo: Baroque. This dramatic art movement was born to inspire tension, drama and grandeur among its audiences, much like Leo, who is unforgettable and takes center stage.

Virgo: Realism. Extremely detailed, this style provides a near exact, no frills replica of reality, giving note to Virgo’s characteristics of being highly organized, honest and structured. 

Libra: Rococo. Rococo, one of the most graceful and beautiful art movements, reflects wonderfully on the sophistication of Libra; like Libra, Rococo is playful, coy and highly elegant. 

Scorpio: Metaphysical. A contrast between light and dark, an expert use of shading and intriguing artistic concepts pair nicely with Scorpio, the sign of mystery and extremes.

Sagittarius: Modernism. Thought provoking, dynamic and futuristic, this art style provokes a shift in thought and perspective among its audiences, just like ultra-progressive and inquisitive Sagittarius.

Capricorn: Cubism. Earth tones, geometric sharpness, realism blended with abstraction and political undertones allude to this powerful, practical and creative Earth sign.

Aquarius: Shock Art. What can get more shocking than a urinal as art - or an Aquarius? Like Aquarius, the Shock Art movement is highly intelligent, ignores outdated social norms and defies the rules. 

Pisces: Fauvism. Reinterpreting the colors, shapes and textures of the outside world to be more fantasy-like alludes to Pisces, who wishes for nothing other than a more compassionate and beautiful world.

Career and Money of the Zodiac Signs!
  • Aries

This is the area of life where Arians is apt to shine the brightest. Ambitious, creative, and often driven by the need to be the best they can be, the workplace can be the perfect platform. Born leaders, this sign is far more comfortable taking charge than taking orders. Their ability to envision allows the steps to naturally fall into place. All the Aries has to do is follow his or her own lead. 

When faced with a challenge, Aries will quickly assess the situation and arrive at a solution - whatever it takes to get the plan off the ground! Competition only makes this fire sign burn brighter. Aries people truly move through life with their own agendas, which are always going to be their primary focal point. Careers that are strong choices include real estate agent, sales, management, conductor, and business owner.

Even though the Aries is wise to save for a rainy day, this isn’t often the case. Because they prize excitement, shopping, gambling, and playing the market are far more appealing. They aren’t focused on the future. In fact, living for the moment is the true Aries philosophy. Money is rarely scarce because of the love of working, but it can be spent almost as quickly as it’s made. The one thing you can be absolutely sure of is that an Aries will have as much fun as possible! 

  • Taurus


Stability is the keyword for this sign. The key phrase for Taurus is “I have.” Taureans love money, and they’re not afraid to work hard to get it. On the job, the Taurus is dependable, patient, and thorough. Once they set their minds to a project, they will stick with it until completion, regardless of how long or complicated it might be. Taureans are on time, up for almost anything, and diligent.

A sense of one’s values is a huge motivator when it comes to the Taurus. Second to that is the love of the rewards that follow hard work. Because members of this sign love to surround themselves with material finery and enjoy the better foods and luxuries that life has to offer, work is very important. It is the means to an end - and the Taurus is always aware of this.

Taureans are excellent managers of money. They will pay their bills on time and will keep a reserve tucked away. On occasion, you can see some overspending, but this is only once in a while. The Taurus will plan for the item they desire and save until they have the additional resources to attain what they want. Careers that suit this strong sign are farming, banking, medicine, education, and building. 

  • Gemini


The best-suited careers for a Gemini are those that stimulate the intellect. “I think” is the key phrase for this sign. Geminians are inventive and often literary. It’s important that the work they commit themselves to doing is dynamic and challenging so boredom doesn’t set in.

Careers as a teacher, debater, reporter, writer, preacher, or lawyer are all well-suited to this sign. Any platform that gives the Geminian room to talk is best! A sales profession is another excellent choice. You can expect to see many tools for communication around this sign, such as PDAs, laptops, and cell phones. Generating new ideas and problem solving are other areas where the Geminian will shine.

Deciding between practicality and pleasure can be a tough thing for a Gemini. While money is a necessary evil, most don’t spend a lot of time worrying about where their next dollar is coming from. They don’t put much thought into balancing their checkbooks, yet they manage to get by just fine. This is largely due to the flexibility Geminians have. 

  • Cancer


Cancerians can be as tenacious as they are sensitive. When there’s a job to do, they roll up their sleeves and get to it. They especially shine when performing caregiving or related tasks, and they make excellent nurses. Other career ambitions include housekeeper, gardener, and journalist. Cancerians’ love of country gives them the base to being outstanding politicians. The need to feel as though they are making a difference, however small, is essential for this sign to feel fulfilled.

Security is of utmost importance to the Cancer native, and money is no different. Making money generally comes easily, and putting it away is usually what happens. Cancerians are not overspenders; in fact, they are far more apt to invest a few dollars and make their money grow. Many Cancer personalities see money as a symbol of their status in life and are inspired to build healthy bank accounts as a result. Cancers are resourceful and manage their time and money well.

  • Leo

Leos are doers. “I will” is the key phrase for this sign. There’s a lot of energy packed into this sign, and they’re always going to be busy, regardless of whatever else is happening around them. They are ambitious, creative, and optimistic. It’s not enough for a Leo to just do the job. In order to suffice, it must be done to the absolute best of their ability. Once committed to an employer, they will go all-out, but the best situation for the Leo is to be his or her own boss.

Careers that allow for the Leo’s dramatic flair, such as acting and entertaining, are ideal. Such positions give the Lion free rein. Other occupations such as management, teaching, and politics are well-suited, too. Anything that puts a Leo in a leadership position will give this sign the opportunity to do what comes naturally.

Leos love to surround themselves with the things they fancy. Because money usually comes readily to the Leo, there’s always more where that came from. Money is meant to be spent as far as this sign is concerned - and spend they will. Generous in spirit, a Leo will give away their last dollar to help a friend. They’re always confident that there will be more, and there usually is. There’s never a lack of work for a Leo. In fact, there’s generally more work available to them than they can keep up with.



  • Virgo


“I analyze” is the key phrase for the Virgo personality, while “practicality” is the keyword. Industrious, discriminating, and scientific by nature, the Virgo really knows how to get to the heart of the matter. They are exceptionally methodical and do well in jobs that require organization. If there’s anything out of order, set a Virgo to the task!

When focused on a task, the Virgo will push themselves to perfection, leaving no stone unturned. They are exacting and take great pride in a job done to the absolute best of their ability. When they feel their talent falls short, they’ll turn to the books to learn whatever they need to improve. Careers suited to this sign include being a doctor, nurse, psychologist, teacher, writer, and critic.

Virgos are excellent with their money. They generally keep a strict grasp on what they spend, and strive to put away as much money as they can. They plan well in advance for expenditures, and when it comes to shopping, they aren’t apt to overspend. Every now and then the Virgo can be seen buying themselves something of beauty, though. They love the arts and enjoy decorating their homes with taste. 

  • Libra


“Harmony” is the keyword for this sign. For the Libran, maintaining this is of the utmost importance. They can be excellent leaders, and will work hard to earn - and deserve - the privilege. Truth and justice always prevail for the Libran as they go about their days. Working with others or in a partnership is ideal for this social sign. Artistic and persuasive, these folks are gifted talkers who do well in any position that provides a platform for them to chat.

Careers that involve justice such as police officer, lawyer, or judge are excellent choices for the Libran. They will also succeed at such occupations as diplomat, civil servant, interior decorator, composer and fashion designer. Group settings pose no challenge for the Libran - in fact, the more the merrier. Their strong sense of diplomacy serves well in almost anything they do.

If you go shopping with a Libran, best to plan some extra time! This sign can be terribly indecisive when it comes to purchasing. Balancing their money, however, is a snap for the Libran. Keeping a good balance between savings and spending money is a real talent for these folks. Their love of fashion and housewares can see them out and about in stores quite often. One of the Libran’s favorite pastimes is to shop for someone special. 

  • Scorpio


“I desire” is the key phrase for the Scorpio. They are fantastic at managing, solving, or creating. Once the Scorpio sets their sights on a goal, there’s no deterring this sign. Tasks that require a scientific, penetrating approach are always best done by Scorpions as they will delve deeply into the materials they have. Their ability to focus coupled with determination makes for strong management skills. They’re not ones to worry about making friends on the job scene; rather, they prefer to see the task accomplished well.

Pursuing such careers as scientist, doctor, investigator, navigator, detective, researcher, police officer, business manager, and psychologist all suit the mighty Scorpio. Respect is an essential aspect of working for this sign. They need to respect their coworkers while also feeling a sense of being respected by others.

Scorpions are disciplined enough to stick to a budget and unafraid of working as hard and as long as it takes to get themselves in a good financial position. Many are fortunate and inherit money. Whatever the case - and regardless of the balance - they are great managers of their dollars and are not apt to overspend. Money means security and a sense of control, which is important to the Scorpio. Therefore, they’re going to hang onto the majority of the cash, making decisions carefully before turning any of it over.

  • Sagittarius


“Visualization” is the keyword for the Sagittarius. When this sign sees something as possible in their minds, they will go to great lengths to rally enough people to make it happen. Straightforward, they don’t usually mince words about what they want, and they seem to know exactly what needs to be said in a given situation. They make excellent salespeople, and it’s even better when this involves travel. When the Sagittarius gets a sense of the big picture, they’ll work night and day to reach a goal.

A variety of tasks and a dynamic atmosphere favor Sagittarians. Careers such as travel agent, photographer, explorer, artist, realtors, ambassador, and import/export trader all suit this free-spirited personality.

Fun loving Sagittarians enjoy making - and spending - money. Considered the luckiest sign of the Zodiac, they don’t worry too much about where the next buck is coming from. Sagittarians are risk-takers and highly optimistic, trusting in the universe to provide what is needed. Money-management tasks will bore the Sagittarius to tears, so getting a bookkeeper or accountant is the best plan in order to stay on top of what’s coming and going. 

  • Capricorn


“Ambition” is the key word for this sign. The key phrase for Capricorn is I use. The Capricorn possesses a real knack for finding the right tool for the job and getting down to it. Starting at the bottom of the ladder and working their way to the top doesn’t scare the Capricorn off. They will go the distance once a goal is set.

In addition to setting high standards for themselves, honesty, perseverance, and a dedication to duty make the Capricorn an excellent manager. Loyalty and a willingness to work as hard as necessary are qualities that this sign values greatly within themselves and in those around them. Careers in management, finance, teaching, and real estate are excellent choices.

Capricorns are resourceful and manage their time and money well. Every now and then, the urge to spend some hard-earned cash can see this sign packing some large shopping bags with fun and frivolous items out of the store. But as a rule, caution goes hand in hand with the Capricorn making practical purchases more likely than anything else. Multifunctional items are definitely favored. 

  • Aquarius


Aquarians bring enthusiasm to the work they do, especially when it involves expression. They have an exceptionally high ability to put their imaginative qualities to the task and to think outside the box. Careers that allow for concept development or demonstration can suit this sign well. “I know” is the key phrase for the Aquarius. High intellect combined with an Aquarius’ willingness to share their talents inspires many who work in the same environment. Being visionary types, Aquarians love to engage in careers that aim to benefit humankind in the long-run.

When it comes to money, this sign really has a knack for keeping a healthy balance between having the things that they need and putting money away. When they are out shopping, the shiny, glittery, and extravagant will catch their attention even though their homes are generally decorated with great taste. It’s not uncommon to find the Aquarius turning heads dressed in daring, brightly colored outfits. Most are well-attuned to their individual sense of style and aren’t afraid to show it.

Careers that suit the Aquarius are acting, writing, teaching, photography, or piloting. The best environment is one that gives the freedom to tackle the task without a lot of strict guidelines. The Aquarius is unconventional, and given the opportunity to show their true talents, they can perform amazing feats.  

  • Pisces


Intuitive and often dreamy, the Piscean is most comfortable in positions that bring their creative natures into humanitarian causes. Some good careers for this sign are lawyer, architect, veterinarian, musician, social worker, and game designer. The key phrase for this sign is “I believe.” It’s important for the Piscean to feel strongly about their endeavors.

Inspired by the need to make a difference in the lives of those they touch, the Piscean is most charitable and will often go way above and beyond the call of duty. Sensitive, deeply compassionate, hardworking, dedicated and reliable, this is one sign that really knows how to get to the heart of the matter. They can be excellent problem solvers.

For the most part, Pisceans don’t give money too much thought. They are more concerned with their dreams and goals than with money. Yet, because this is often times a component to reaching their aspirations, the Piscean will ensure they have the money they need. They can be of two minds in this area. On one hand the Pisces will spend, spend, spend with little thought, and on the other hand they can become quite miserly. Yet, in the end there’ll always seem to be enough to do what they want in life.

Omg your art !! So gorgeoussss~!!!! <333 Anyway, I was wondering if you had a preference for who tops and bottoms or you just don't care (switching)? ~

Hello:D!!! Thank you for asking me.

Actually, I prefer Tony as a top and Loki as a bottom, I’m afraid.

But I really enjoy looking at every fan-arts or fan… fan works(?) of different tastes.

I’m not very good at these things as you said but I’m sooooo happy to hear from you.

Thank you very much<3

About some messages I have been getting.

I’ll let you know, you won’t be seeing any molesting at all. I’ll take this moment to clear up some stuff people has been messaging me about. I was not a fan of APM nor a DMW supporter, this blog is not about controversy or sexual acts or social justice or keeping a memory alive. Is about creating something fun out of a really tense situation, something that everyone can enjoy, whatever part of the fandom they are in. I have seen people saying this blog is “A pathetic attempt to rebel agaisnt something while seeming clever” To that person I can only say: Good job generalizing and being overall rude to people you haven’t even got the chance to know. You don’t know me or my intentions, so please just stop.

If you hold any hopes of me showing some “Molestia-esque” stuff in here or being a parody like Mole-stia (nothing agaisnt those guys, is crude satire but not hateful) or you expect me to be an entitled social justice warrior with airs of superiority… just leave, have a nice day, unfollow my blog and go on your merry way, you have a nice life! c:

IF you wanna have a nice time, enjoy cute art and have a taste of good old Moe horsepower, have a sit and enjoy the ride! this blog is here to stay and I’ll do my best to make you smile or take a few laughs out of you! Take you back to those times in wich the fandom was more about enjoying a thing as a group of people! all you gotta do is remember and you will be living it :3 Have a great day!

Love:

Philip Seymour Hoffman Week: Synecdoche, New York (2008)

KNOWING THAT YOU DON’T KNOW

by Sam Donsky

You’re awake. You enter Synecdoche, New York as you might enter each day: as darkness, into brightness, staring heroically into the red of the clock. 7:44turns to 7:45, turns to 7:46. This last turn scarcely seems to take time at all, ten or fifteen seconds at most. Which is weird. This is not how minutes go, you think. One of these minutes has been not like the other. It doesn’t matter, of course; it is too late to complain. There is no built-in recourse for transgressions like these. There are no bounty hunters for lost moments, no debt collectors for seconds that have over-borrowed their means. (They once made a comment-box for Life’s Arbitrary Pacing; it has been full now for quite some time.) There is no time. You know the best remedy is but to move as one must—onward, from this moment, avowed to savor the next one. To land it in paradise. To refuse to allow it to be shot through with loss. Suddenly you feel an ache at the toes, at the knees, at the heart, at the throat. It rises as the body rises, as you rise, as you lift from the bed. You look in the mirror. 7:46—a dear minute. A darling fucker. Finally, you think. You look back at the clock and it is already gone.

You’re a father. You have a daughter now: she is sick—people die, it turns out. This is a cause for alarm. You wonder if your daughter will die. Better she than you, you think. An awful thought. A necessary one. You are sick too; you’ve always been. Sometimes it’s enough to be healthy and sometimes it’s enough to be loved, someone told you. You have no idea what anyone’s talking about. There is too much love and too little health. Your daughter loves you, though it’s early. She is young and people change. When Adele leaves you she will take her away, and she will probably ruin her—through negligence or brilliance or through the lack of your love. “Adele,” of course, being your wife’s name. You’re trying to be fair to her but simply cannot; parenting has fed on you and fucked up your wiring. But you love Olive. Each moment with her is a genuine privilege, a gold star on the upper corner of your justificatory urge. “Olive,” of course, being your daughter’s name. You enjoyed naming her. It was perhaps your first taste of art, of creation, and it was otherworldly—a high you would have been content to live off forever. You are an artist, after all. You are Caden; that is your name. You are here and you are healthy and you exist now in the sumptuous, to say nothing of important, role of someone who’s been loved. You are the father of a future teenager. You are a great artist, a giant math that no one understands. You are a remnant of the before the before.

You’re a genius. Someone once told you that, and they better have meant it—because you’ve passed it on since to whoever would listen. People just accept it now. You’ve been given a Genius Grant; you are directing a Genius Play. They’ll say the play is about everything but it will be about you—your life—and who are you to correct them. When you write about your crooked nose they’ll say look at life’s narrative arc. When you write about a house-on-fire they’ll say consider life’s eternal flame. And so on. (This is what geniuses say.) The promise genius is allowed to make, famously and often, is that it can go anywhere so as to be anyone. It is an offer of not just mobility but identity, the capacity to costume life in the clothes of the Absolutely Whatever. Your reliance on this promise as you grow older—as you grow more genius—is severe; is premised on a limitless desire for standing inside yourself, for taking the time to make sense—for staying true to the upload of your own, redemptive, ruminative plot. It is a tough job. It is time to meet the cast of your play; to give them a speech; to give them something profound. Let’s all go somewhere comprehensible, you say, and when you say all you don’t mean it. And when you say go you mean stay. And when you say comprehensible you mean they’ll taste it—you mean they’ll know when you get there.

You’re gay. How else to explain it? The question is insulting and rhetorical both. Of course you aren’t. Of course you are. Everyone in your life is a woman, and your heart is the size of a fucking five-borough city, and it’s terrible sometimes, not loving them, it’s honestly the worst. But you don’t. Sex with women makes you cry. Seeing them naked is but the download of a very bad dream. Your penis is funny: a stay-at-home mom. You would like to make love to men but cannot. Erik, whom you’ve never before seen. Whom you see every day. One of the loveliest moments of your entire life is something someone sometime says. So tell me what you want from me, they say. It is an Erik named Claire or vice-versa, and when this offer arrives it is hard to refuse. You’re getting older; there isn’t much time. People die, you know? By now Olive is dead. By now your stomach has unraveled, your muscles have begun to fade, your hair is a fallen childhood star. For your birthday Erik takes you to the Oh Oh, Mexico, or perhaps New York, New York—you can’t even remember. One of them is your favorite theater: it’s the drive-in memory and they’re playing Everything, Ever: A Dream. It has a surprise ending: everything happens and then doesn’t, all at once. A sweat-drenched revelation! says the evening news but you miss it. You’re busy. You’re turning whiplash to kisses, windows straight to fog. It’s fate tyranny! you think but it just keeps on raining, intricate fragments, precarious cool—you’re Caden, you’re in love, the world is your fourth wall, your high-tech defense. It’s never been breached but it hasn’t yet asked to be. You’re gay. You’re wondrous, you’re awake. You’re a silence spilled but a slick, slick, slick accident.

You’re a woman. Isn’t it obvious? You’re shocked it’s taken this long for someone to say so. What they say of the finally flowered is do not be shocked by their roots; you came from a woman so it makes sense that you’d be one. You’ve flirted with What’s You for a while. You’ve ridden on the wave of what it means to be among the living—of what it means to be among the unready to die. I am a woman, you think, and it is thrilling, and it is the opposite of anecdotal. This has nothing to do with Erik, or Claire, or Olive or Adele; this is you, your life. As a man you were gathering consciousness but as a woman you are hunting for it. You have a theory about women: they are perfect. You love them. Here is a future: Your penis is still funny; your dick is electric; you suppose giving birth is like dreaming of dreaming. Sometimes a truth feels like a genuine urge, feels like the narrative view of what happiness ought to have been. This is one of those times. You are a woman; your name is Hazel. At some point everything reveals its feminine side. Yours is all sides, you’re certain: is a fixed source of meaning, the past’s DNA running out from and connecting back to it. You are a woman; you are your life’s unrequited flirtation: masculinity your vessel for enduring past either—a manifesto on not knowing how to flirt back.

You’re scared. You’ve been a bad person; you’ve been you now for years. You’ve seen the horizon and you don’t care what they say: it is official, it is signed and sealed—there is just not enough time. There truly isn’t. You’d otherwise like to amend what you’ve done. What you haven’t done. Be more honest with Adele. Scratch in Olive’s journal I’m not a genius, I swear. Tell Claire what her role means. Tell Erik what you meant when you screamed “normatively compelled.” Tell someone—anyone—that the play has to be scrapped. That you could have finished it if you wanted to but it never made sense—never would have made you happy, not in twenty-thousand years. That what made you happy was the specter of genius, of love, of concrete story, of abstract health. That life is only vital in its most fractional moments, and that the rest on their own are a trek to endure. That one can fractionize sincerely or swell with what’s possible: into the thrust of an ending that might only sometimes be real—that either way one can count on as genius-approved. You tried. For a while, and really hard. You know that you failed. That you were asleep when you should have been awake, that you are finite and flawed and are going to die. You are going to die. I’m sorry! you shout, and from the magic of silence you assume it’s okay. You assume that eventually, for everyone, all is forgiven. Or at least that’s how you’d write it. In your version each moment has a narrative sum. Everything happens with a purpose; resolutions don’t wait. When the hero starts something he finishes it. When you sleep you wake up. When the narrator says in the next twenty thousand years, he means any minute now.

Person of Interest Appreciation Week-Day 2: Favorite Character

Harold Finch

  • Just a human making decisions. 

Harold had guilt complex, and it didn’t came from nowhere. It might be caused by his survivor’s guilt, and from the constant arguing between what he could do and what he should do. Harold Finch had the power to change the world. He could use it to do good or bad or do nothing. First, he chose the “minimum interference”, to use the machine to pick up relevant numbers. He believed that’s right. He had learnt from his childhood and youth experiences that not every broken thing was meant to be fixed. He shouldn’t be so hubris to think he could make everything perfect as he wanted. Until he lost his closest friend. It’s like the old nightmare all over again. He made a decision in good intention and from his lessons, and still it backfired.

Soon after, despite his own suffering and pain he tried to make amends. He gave almost everything he had to save irrelevant numbers and not to judge who deserved to live and who die. Then the cyber apocalypse happened. The plot kept pushing him to extremes and urged him to make yet another decision, and forced him to watch its outcome and taste its aftermath. Did this make Harold Finch a failure hero? I beg to differ. During the whole process, he acted according to his moral code and bored with the consequence. He was a character with depth. Like us, just a human trying to make a good decision in even the worst situation, to be true to our beliefs.

  • A chessmaster who didn’t really enjoy the game.

This might be my favorite thing about his character. Harold Finch could manipulate people and turn the table to his favor. He was crazy-prepared and always a few steps ahead. Like he sold the computer to make sure when those government guys tried to hack the machine, they would use his own code. He also used this talent to support John many times. He was definitely a chessmaster, however, he didn’t really enjoy the game. He was capable of these kind of things, and yet he kept questioning himself should he do it and to what extant.

After the plot focus changed to the ASI War, this conflict within him became more and more clear. The scale was bigger, the situation was more complicated and no one had ever experienced before. He became indecisive, some may say. I think he was prone to over cautious, when it involved the others. But he was also prone to reckless, when only himself was at stake. Look almost every tactical decision he made during the ASI War involved his own risk even sacrifice (and was stopped once the others found out). People were not pawns, he believed, but people did not include Harold himself, which said a lot about his character and self-estimated.

  • Despite his physical injuries and mental trauma, he kept going.

He took care and tried to buy time for Theresa in “Ghost” despite of his limping. His first instinct upon knowing a bomb was running to it to warn its target. When his newly hired agent was out of reach and couldn’t get the key information in time, he went to the spot to reach him. He was willing to engage in field work if it meant he could help his team to save people.

His injuries didn’t stop him. He tried to overcome his trauma and lived with it. With his talents and resources he could be anyone he wanted, but once he had responded the calling, he hardly stopped.

  • Despite his suffering and loss, he remained goodness in his heart.

Harold was kidnapped by Root through “The Contingency” and “Bad Code”. He decided to bring Root with them rather than leave her to those ISA people. He refused to murder a congressman to win a battle, which was different from killing a man in crossfire and for self-protection I’d like to add. He revealed himself to Collier to save Control’s life. He had lost loved ones and life he should have had since the moment he brought the machine to this world, yet he fought to be true to their original intentions, to save people.

Yes, some of his decisions led to worse situations. But motivations speak as loud as achievements. There is only one plot line for a character, just like there is only one version of life we will live. And most of people aren’t lucky enough to gain an outcome deserved their intention and effort. No, I don’t believe in judging people solely by the consequence caused by their choice. It’s the choice itself speaks for people’s character, and shows the agency of humanity. We only have one destined ending out there awaits. It’s hard enough. But I’d always be the most grateful that, in this story, there was a Harold Finch who refused to kill one life in order to save a hundred, who refused to let the ends justify the means. He was smart and with power, yet he chose to care and be kind, even when that seemed stupid and self-destructed. And in the end, that was the definitional difference between the machine and Samaritan.

  • Bonus Points: He loved books, nice suits, quality food, and arts.

Honestly, he bought libraries!! And he was a true book lover. He even prepared a novel to propose to Grace. And he used a fictional character’s name to set a password. He had a good taste of clothes and arts. And he enjoyed nice food and films and music. Like honestly? He was good!
