Harry and his attitude toward Marcone

(Anonymous) 2011-06-30 05:17 am (UTC)(link)
Something that struck me as... I dunno, off? about Harry's reactions/attitude towards Marcone; as much as Harry denounces John and annoys him when they meet, as much as Harry talks and acts like there's no way he'll ever trust John, unless one of those cases that turn into a possible city or worldwide catastrophe rears its head Harry never even thinks about him. It seems like Harry trusts John enough or agrees with his methods enough on some unconscious/subconscious level to be comfortable completely ignoring him unless he (Harry) absolutely has to deal with him (John).

Also, Harry is amazingly creative and resourceful when he needs to be, as well as being the usual kind of dangerous. He has friends and allies that are as dangerous, resourceful, and/or creative as he is. He has very strong convictions and has shown that while he's (usually) aware of the consequences of his more serious actions, if he believes in something strongly enough Harry will go through with just about anything and damn those consequences (the war against the Reds and pretty much everything that comes about because of his saving people thing are good examples). If Harry Dresden really, truly thought that John Marcone was a bad guy, was "criminal scum", he'd have taken John out by now or would at least be making life extremely difficult for him.

Despite his singular disregard for the power vacuum that would occur when the Reds lost (which I think Marcone was utterly distracted by when Harry came calling) I think Harry managed to grasp the good guys couldn't fill Marcone's place. The advantage of not having his daughter hanging in the balance. That to try would make them bad guys or failures.

And he starts getting fond of people in the organization pretty quickly, like being glad Hendricks had kevlar on when the FBI started gunning, or knowing the Morelli thugs would hurt the EP trainers so he'd have to step in despite it being business related.
