Paying Respects reviews
So – the actors got into a little Twitter tiff about whose character had loved Joss Carter more, Donnelly (if he weren't dead) or Scarface. This crack!fic had to be written. Gallows humor. Seriously no disrespect intended. It's only funny if the coffin's empty. As I have not accepted Donnelly's death, so also do I reject Carter's. We need to laugh before we cry any more.

John Reese has always protected people. He has his reasons. Usually his overprotective instincts are an asset. But sometimes they just make things worse. The new Number and his brother need Reese's help, but only if he can keep from scaring them to death. Casefic, S2 after "Dead Reckoning" with some spoilers. Adult language and reference to drug use.

By the Book reviews
Special Agent Donnelly is obsessed with the Man in the Suit. He's certain that Christine Fitzgerald knows where he is. So the last thing he expects is to end up on a date with her. But watching the 1935 B&W movie of "Les Miserables" isn't really a date, is it? Even if there's popcorn? And hand-holding? And maybe just a kiss or two? It's still all just about finding the Man, right?

Tuesday in the Rain with Bear reviews
Sequel to "Backing Up." Finch is safe, but snappish and unappreciative. Christine Fitzgerald has a big bruise on her face and a not-entirely-convincing story about how she got it. Bear makes his first rescue and obviously expects his master to take care of her. And it's raining. John Reese is just not having a good day. But it might get better, with a little help from his friends.
