Why You Should Read This:
“Dead” is the author’s word — it’s a figurative use of the word, not literal; this is not a death-fic.
This isn’t one of those fic that you can read without knowing something about the show. But even a couple of episodes will let you appreciate how well the author has caught the essence of these two broken men.
In such a short piece, John makes Finch (it’s not until the end that John calls Finch by his first name – very like them both) see that they are both entitled to a chance at happiness.
