* Recommended by {{Tropers/Erivale}}
* ''Status'': Complete
* ''Synopsis'': University AU where Root and Shaw have been forced to work together to plan and run their school's engineering competition.\\
\\
In no particular order, there will be: "oops I accidentally fell in love with you" Root, an excruciatingly slow build, jealous Shaw, jealous Root, donut thievery, eventual smut, backstories, nerdiness, things moving right along to the complex plane after the midpoint, and most importantly: cheesy science jokes! bad puns and corny jokes!
* ''Comments'': A solid Shoot fic. As the synopsis might indicate, this is not a particularly serious fic, and instead of tackling the show's heavier themes, it mostly takes the more amusing aspects of the show (Fusco being a butt monkey, Root being a troll, etc.) and runs with them. The author gets Shaw's and Root's voices perfect, and the back and forth is very entertaining and occasionally touching.

* ''Synopsis'': ''She wants to tell Root that fire creates as much as it destroys, that forests are as dependent upon fire – upon chaos and heat and carnage – as they are upon water. The forest needs fire to stay alive, to grow. She wants to tell Root that she thinks they might be the same way – dangerous and destructive but still somehow necessary.'' -- A 5.09 missing scene - the night between the park and the Team Machine meeting under the bridge

But things are rarely as they seem, and soon Shaw realises that the one she thought forever lost might actually need her more than ever before.

* ''Comments'': Of all the Person of Interest fanfics I've read, only a honored few would I consider as candidates for being my own personal Season 6. Not only is this fic one of them - it's ''the'' very one which made me go: "That's it, this is now my headcanon!". It has all the right ingredients of a proper [=PoI=] season:
** a new plot arc that also ties up some loose ends
** character development of established characters, as well as the introduction of a promising new character to the team
** side plots relating to the 'numbers'
** a good balance of drama and humor, darkness and fluff, action and intrigue.

* ''Synopsis'': “We were supposed to save them,” she says, and Root steps forward, close enough to touch her, but lets her arms drop to her sides.
This was never the Someday either of them envisioned.

* Recommended by {{Tropers/Murus}}
* ''Synopsis'': Sometimes they all have trouble sleeping.
* ''Comments'': Reese. Carter. Fusco. Finch watches over them all (especially Reese), even when they're sleeping. It is his own strange way of caring - and he knows how to help discreetly should there be need for it. This is a small and subtle story about heartwarming surveillance and odd friendships.

* ''Comments'': Another story of Finch observing the team, this time over the comms while they're in action (poking the Shaw, because it's oh so easy). As they bicker like a bunch of unruly children, he realizes that, in a way, they truly have become a family.

* ''Comments'': A glimpse at various ways things could have gone differently, and some snippets that might have taken place in the canon continuity. All of them well-written and intense with emotion.

* ''Comments'': At first I wasn't sure that this is the right fic for me. However, I gave it a chance, and boy am I glad I did! Starting with Root's recovery from what happened in 5x10, we follow the growth of her relationship with Shaw. Various subjects are touched on, including their inner lives and motivations, and I think the author did it quite well. Jump aboard, and you might come in time to see some new and interesting people join the team...
