“Pi, the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, and this is just the beginning; it keeps on going, forever, without ever repeating. Which means that contained within this string of decimals, is every single other number. Your birthdate, combination to your locker, your social security number, it’s all in there, somewhere. And if you convert these decimals into letters, you would have every word that ever existed in every possible combination; the first syllable you spoke as a baby, the name of your latest crush, your entire life story from beginning to end, everything we ever say or do; all of the world’s infinite possibilities rest within this one simple circle.” [Person of Interest 2x11 2 PI R]

10 Rinch moments we never saw but probably happened.

This is excruciatingly fluffy and sweet, and I’m not even sorry! 

1. John cooking an extremely romantic dinner for Harold. He isn’t quite sure what Harold would be in the mood for though, so Harold walks into John’s apartment to find every inch of the kitchen counter covered with dishes encompassing a wide range of cuisines ranging from Thai to Indian to a humble cheeseburger. John would’ve considered feeling mildly embarrassed about it, but Harold’s eyes lighting up with surprise and slight confusion as he took in the scene in front of him, the tiny helpless laugh that he couldn’t suppress, and the impossibly fond smile on his face as he shook his head incredulously… John will cherish this moment for the rest of his life.

2. Harold taking John for a flight in one of his planes. Flying is simultaneously relaxing and exhilarating, and Harold can’t stop staring at the magnificent vast expanse of blue ocean below and around them, glittering brightly in the sun. John can’t stop staring at Harold.

3. Harold sometimes wondered why he didn’t share his actual birthday with John. It wasn’t a matter of trust, after all. The very idea of John using this information against him was laughable. But his past was just that – his past. John deserved something more, something better, something that was entirely his. And it’s not like ‘Finch’ had a birth certificate somewhere. He tells John to pick a date and wishes desperately for a camera so that he could capture the brilliant smile that spread across John’s face forever. John chooses 16th September as Harold Finch’s birthday – the day he and Harold met.

4. John and Harold watching The Lion King in pitch darkness with a vodka martini each. Blame it on the alcohol, the multiple near death experiences they’d had that day, or the fact that The Lion King is really fucking sad, but John is blinking rapidly by the end and Harold wordlessly reaches out to run a hand through John’s hair and pull him close. 

5. Speaking of fathers dying painfully, Harold telling John about his dad. Harold sharing statistics about Alzheimer’s being passed on from one generation to the next. Harold finally discussing the probability of him losing his memories with someone, and confessing how terrifying and utterly incomprehensible he found that notion. And John simply listening and being there and not saying a word.

6. John and Harold reclining with a cigar each on the terrace of a penthouse suite overlooking New York City’s dazzling skyline. Harold looks up at the sky and even though they can’t quite make out the stars, he tells John about the constellations and shares obscure facts about galaxies millions of light years away and points out Sirius shining above them. It’s all moot however, given that the only thing John is looking raptly at is Harold. 

7. Harold pushing John onto his library desk, John being slightly surprised, just a little smug and very turned on, and Bear being completely and utterly traumatized. WHAT?! The ask says “rinch things we never saw but probably happened” and I defy y’all to look me in the eye and tell me that this didn’t probably happen! 

8. Harold buying that motorbike after Shadow Box! John is mildly terrified and completely resigned as he clambers up behind Harold. Harold drives them around for an hour before pulling up to a safehouse John has never seen before, turning to him with an exhilarated smile that makes his breath catch, and throwing him two sets of keys – one for the house and one for the bike.

9. This bit of dialogue after John just almost died (again):

“Would this be a good time to reiterate that breaking through the space-time continuum isn’t actually something I’m capable of, Mr. Reese?”
*slightly dazed shrug* “I knew you’d make it.”
*exasperated sigh* “And the reason you’re so certain about this is…??”
“…it’s you.”
*cue Harold’s exasperated look giving way to fond and incredulous and still mildly exasperated look*

10. John having nightmares about Harold in pain, Harold bleeding, Harold as SAM’s prisoner, Harold dying. John jerking awake at 3 am in the morning and immediately reaching for his ear piece…

John Reese: You there, Finch?
Harold Finch: Always, Mr. Reese.
