↳ Day 3 [Favorite Dynamic(s)]: In which I can’t really choose. 


Root: Shaw kissed me.

Zoe: Ohmygodohmygod

Carter: Ok, all right. We want to hear everything. Zoe, get the wine. Root, does this end well or do we need to get tissues?

Root: Oh, it ended very well.

Zoe: [getting the wine] Do not start without me. Do not start without me.

Carter: Ok, all right, let’s hear about the kiss. Was it like a soft brush against your lips? Or was it like a “I gotta have you now” kind of thing?

Root: Well, at first it was really intense, you know. And then, oh god, and then we just sort of sunk into it.

Carter: Ok, so, were you holding her? Or were her hands like on you?

Root: No, actually first they started on my waist. And then, they slid up, and then, they were on my shoulders.

Carter and Zoe: Ohhhhh.

In the next room [Shaw eating as Reese feeds Bear and Finch is researching]

Shaw: And, uh, and then I kissed her.

Reese: Tongue?

Shaw: Yeah.

Reese: Cool.

You are a superAI, tasked with keeping people safe. You have done so, for a time. Now, a rival AI as powerful - maybe more - who has vowed to destroy you, have finally uncovered where your physical anchors are. Its full might has been dispatched against you. The few operatives you have are disabled, nearly incapacitated. What do you do?

  • Shaw has called Root hot and admires her gun handling skills
  • John has called Root pretty and praised her kidnapping skills
  • Zoe said she was cute and knew the picture of Turing’s husband was fake becase she picked up gay vibes from Root
  • Fusco said she has a big brain
  • Harold thinks she’s brilliant
  • Greer wanted her on his team
  • The Machine chose Root as her analong interface and imagined everyone as Root
  • Samaritan agrees that Root is pretty

I’ve never seen a show where everyone praises a character as much as everyone praises Root
