Harold moved down the stairs on automatic pilot. He refused to believe he had lost John. The man was invincible, he had seen him face down so many odds, and not just this night.  He had read his military records, awed at his heroic actions. He had talked to Senator Greer, though he despised the man to no end, he wanted some insight on Agent Reese.  He told him about the time he took a bullet to save his life, and he wasn’t refereeing to the time in Afghanistan, but in DC.  

The reason he had got the soldier recruited was because he himself had received death threats.  Agent Reese had worked tirelessly, despite his personal feelings about Greer, and found the culprit.  When the stalker realized the game was up, he went for the Senator.  Reese took a bullet to the vest, and one to the leg. But he had stood firm in front of his protectee and took down the threat with one shot.

It was a known tale in the Secret Service, it was how he got promoted to White House detail.  His attitude and rumors of his sexuality had him shipped out to Senator Finch.  The irony being he ended up in the very job they had tried to keep from him.

‘I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.’
-Atticus Finch

On this day in music history: August 23, 1975 - “Get Down Tonight” by KC & The Sunshine Band hits #1 on the Billboard R&B singles chart for 1 week, also topping the Hot 100 for 1 week on August 30, 1975. Written and produced by Harry Wayne Casey and Richard Finch, it is the first chart topping single for the Hialeah, FL based R&B band. Casey and Finch meet each other in 1973 when they are hired to do odd jobs at local label TK Records. Following the huge success they have as the writers and producers of George McCrae’s international hit “Rock Your Baby”, KC & The Sunshine Band launch their own career with their first album “Do It Good” spinning off the singles “Blow Your Whistle”, “Sound Your Funky Horn” in 1974. On “Get Down Tonight”, the songs signature guitar licks on the intro are achieved by recording guitarist Jerome Smith playing with the tape running at half speed, changing both the sound and texture of the notes dramatically when played back at normal speed. Issued as the first single from their self-titled second album in March of 1975, it hits the R&B and pop charts, climbing both simultaneously. “Get Down Tonight” sells over a million copies in the US, and is the first of four R&B and five pop chart toppers that KC & The Sunshine Band have over the next four and a half years.

i loved when finch replied "she (shaw) knows" to root's message. he's very observant and he just sat back and watched root falling for shaw while shaw tried to get away from her love. this is incredible. finch ships them. that was one of the best moments

but honestly poi had the best ship development i’ve ever seen. two characters completely different with their own flaws, the flirting wasn’t subtle but root falling for shaw it wasn’t forced. it was slowly and it was so natural. and even if root hided the fact she loved shaw behind the witty flirting, shaw really knew what was happening between them. so glad for this show

I assume this message was supposed to go together? Lol I hope so :p But anyways, as much as I don’t like Finch, I can admit that I really do love that moment (although I do wish he would’ve let her finish her message -_-). And yes I completely agree with you. I love how natural Shoot’s progression was. I’m not a big fan of rushed relationships, I like slow burn as long as it eventually happens of course lol but yea I’m very grateful for poi too even with all its flaws. I’m too attached and can’t let go at this point. :(((

Romeo loves skirts and dresses.
Spot always has at least a streak of bright colors in his hair.
Crutchie’s makeup game is on point.
Jack paints his nails.
Race gives no fucks about what people think about his clothing choices.
Finch never took T and still has a soprano voice and it’s beautiful.
The newsies do not care about your stupid gender roles and neither do I.

Hannah Abbott knew, as early as first year, that she wanted to be a healer. She had never given much thought as to what she would be when she grew up, until she met Susan Bones. Once she learned of what had happened to Susan’s family in the Great Wizarding War, she knew that she wanted to be a healer. She wanted to try and save as many lives as she could; she didn’t want there to be more orphans like Susan.
However, she didn’t act on her desire, until her second year, when one of her best friends, Justin Finch-Fetchley, was petrified by a Basilisk, and the only way to reverse it, was through herbal medicine. So, she talked to her Head of House, Prof. Sprout about what classes she would need to pay extra attention in, to make her wish come true. Prof. Sprout was amazed; here was a small, shy, twelve year old girl, and yet, she wanted to help people through medicine, and magic. Naturally, Prof. Sprout agreed to help Hannah in any way she could to allow her to become a Healer.
Third year, she paid extra attention in all of her classes; she’d need to know everything she could about Defense Against the Dark Arts, Charms, Transfiguration, Herbology, as well as Potions and Care of Magical Creatures. On top of it all, she was helping Prof. Sprout in the greenhouses for, not only extra credit, but for extra knowledge in Herbology. It was a lot to undertake, but she was a Hufflepuff, and she knew she could do it.
Come fourth year, a Gryffindor boy by the name of Neville Longbottom, started helping out in the greenhouses as well. Hannah thought he was a rather adorable, really; wonky teeth, ears to big for his face, hair that constantly got in the way, and an obsession with all things herbology to boot - he was as cute as they came. The two became fast friends, and would often be found in the library, quizzing each other on various herbology plants, and their uses.
Hannah never thought in a million years, that six years later, she would find herself married to that once shy boy, or that she would become the owner of the Leaky Cauldron. And, she certainly never would have thought, that eleven years more, that her husband would be the Professor of Herbology at Hogwarts, and that she would find herself the new Matron at Hogwarts; having completed her dream of becoming a healer.

What Finch meant when he said Shaw alread knew? I thought it was she knew what Root was going to say to her cause that made me cry lmao

Lol I think he meant that Shaw already knew how Root felt about her (which she did). I think by 405 Root was in very deep but it was just hitting her at lightening speed by then because she thought this was the end for her.
