Author has written 1 story for Person of Interest.

I am a mature widowed woman from a traditional background. I've never written fiction. IHeartShules, a writer of life changing efforts in POI stories encouraged me.

Like the character John Reese, we all have the choice to think a new path for ourselves everyday. If you don't get who or what you want, you did not meet enough people. It is hard to get what you want, if you never ask. It can mean trying at different times and places. Undeniable gains can, and have been made even with a painful past.

John told Joss "You are not alone." Protecting her gave him a relationship with her. Everyone does better if even 1 person cares for their existence. I'm thinking of those who took their own lives during lockdown from Covid-19. This can mean finding a mate and joining their family. Women widowed or divorced in news articles on the web. who are in their 60's and 70's have married men of similar ages successfully. They did not regret asking for what they wanted. They created new chances and a new reality.

John Reese had lost his family. He found Joss & Harold while ability and appearance were still his. Illness, disability and changed appearance come to everyone. It is much harder to help oneself after too much time passes by and those who would have helped you have passed away when the bad things happen.

John's desire for children, even adopted relate to his character's previous isolation. His having or adopting children helps. Until children can protect themselves, they need to be loved more than even separated parents dislike each other. Giving children siblings helps. This is a birth to death relationship that can last longer than parents, spouses, and friends.

John tries to hold on to his ties to Finch after he stops working for him. People who prove themselves ethical and compassionate, are to be gathered like rare precious flowers, nurtured with time and attention, to harvest the benefit of stability, affection, better health, and lifetime satisfaction. They can be found with others who think the same way at activities and volunteer events to help others. John's behavior to get super ethical Joss into his life is an example.

My father would watch people while they drove a car. He thought that revealed what they really thought. When they were driving, were they courteous and did they plan ahead? Did they "gamble with the machine in their hands."? He said that proved who they were and what they did when they were not in the car. This was faster than waiting years too long to find out.

The character, Harold, proved his response to hardship was as important as his injuries. The idea that starting from where they were did work. Starting over from scratch is not always necessary. Harold's health and John's mental state did not keep them from trying to affect their future.

Although the future can not be predicted, it can and has been influenced. In a very unusual, old Hollywood, USA, film, "Rain", a man said to a woman, who had a hard and difficult life, that there were people who were not proud of what they had done in the past, but chose to do things, very differently, in the future. Sixty years after this film was made, I thought John's character was similar to this movie.

"Late bloomers" is a label I saw on the Internet to describe people who try new things late in life.

Although John, Harold and Joss are middle aged, I discovered extremely "late bloomers" Margaret Mitchell, Norman Cousins, and Laura Ingalls Wilder and many others who chose their purpose. They started new directions at advanced ages to find satisfying activities. This included the aforementioned successful marriages of women in their 60's and 70's. It is not how much time there is left, it's what will be done with it.

Opportunities are constant, rarely does the same one happen twice. They looked at every open door no matter how small it seemed. Looking at the bad and good in every chance helped these people. Even accepting some of them temporarily, until they could move on to another one, proved useful. The history of these people is on the Web. Reading about the very different things they did is very encouraging. John's character knew his skills, health and response to his life would work with the job offer from Harold and how it would get Joss interested in him.

Thoughts are not tied to the condition of the body. A paralyzed Steven Hawkins proved that. I agree that the mind is a free country.

For me writing is thinking. Words matter, they stand by themselves, even if the source is not an official paid one. So many stories about these characters from writers from different cultures and countries are better than the some episodes of the show. I wish the official show managers had read this site. There are themes that matter.

I will finish my first story by the end of June 2017. I have been ill, which delayed my writing. I have persisted, if only to write a few words a day.

I am paraphrasing Calvin Coolidge's quote: When talent, education, and genius are not enough, start a new path with diligence and persistence that will get this and anything else done.

I thank all of you who see this. I don't know if I will write any more. I am still recuperating. Stay safe.

Within Limits by Yahong reviews
In which I ruthlessly spin Careese/Everybody-Loves Carter fluff out of single canon sentences. THAT'S IT, THAT'S THE FIC. 1: "Is there another agency following you that I'm not aware of?" 2: "Have you ever smoked marijuana?" 3: "Lot of fine girls out today."

Something Perfect by odalys-ortiz reviews
John is still struggling to find a way to tell Joss his feelings after both surviving HR and Simmon's ambush. Maybe the right gift is all he needs. Careese pairing, Post The Crossing, and A/U because Joss is indeed alive:)

Sailing by flashpenguin reviews
In an alternate ending to "Prisoner's Dilemma", Reese finds himself alone on the pier thinking about the note Joss slipped in his coat pocket. When she arrives, she has a few questions and a surprise for him. This is just a nice fluffy, fuzzy holiday story. Written for Lady Sundiver.

A New Chance reviews
John faces his desires. He and Joss go undercover as husband and wife to stop a murder. This is very AU. Joss Carter is alive with John. The show gave up, the ratings went down. This is how I think the show should have been.
