four recs for Person of Interest, Joss Carter/John Reese

Fandom Category: Person of Interest (TV)
Pairing: Joss Carter/John Reese
Fic Title: how do you like your blueeyed boy?
Author: mr-finch
Link: http://archiveofourown.org/works/626838
Rating/Warning(s): PG for language (includes arguments about religion and people drinking)
Genre: character study, build-up to relationship
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I like Carter's realistic examination of who Reese is; plus I've always thought it more likely that she would initiate any kind of relationship beyond what they have on the show, and this demonstrates that well. Also, the conversations are really interesting.

Fic Title: Girls at Night
Author: blacktop50
Link: http://blacktop50.livejournal.com/2012/09/17/
Rating/Warning(s): PG-13 for sex and frank talk of sex
Genre: ongoing relationship; friendship fic
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Blacktop's ongoing Carter/Reese series continues to charm me. This time it's the tricky navigation of how to be 'public' about a relationship that can't actually be public at all.

Fic Title: Exhibition
Author: blacktop50

Rating/Warning(s): R for sexual imagery
Genre: outsider POV
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: Blacktop's original character Daro is introduced in the previous story; here she's the audience for an entirely false first-time story about Carter and Reese. I particularly like this when compared with Blacktop's actual first-time story, The Most Beautiful Dress in the World. (I recced it before.)

Blacktop50 continues to be prolific in writing this pair, so take a look at her livejournal or her ff.net profile if you like her other work.

Fic Title: The Other Guy
Author: jakela on ff.net

Rating/Warning(s): M for sex
Genre: budding relationship
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I wanted to rec a multi-chapter fic, and this is one that I find enjoyable for the humor, and plausible for the reluctance of Carter and Reese to get involved with each other. As the title suggests, Carter starts a relationship with someone else (a nicely-written original character who is compelling without being perfect) and that sparks what happens later. I'm usually not a big fan of jealousy in stories, but this one handles it well, and with humor.
