[Background for you if you magically got here without being linked to it - I wrote this up as part of my fandom stocking post when I asked for music recs, and then realized that it was a bit, ahem, long.]

[Oh, and yes, I have a stocking! I'll make sure to link to it when it's up :D]

Genre talk. )

This brings me to the conclusion of this long winded ramble on music I love. I hope it helped! And even if it didn't, I hope you had fun!

Title: come away to the darkness
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke, Elizabeth Burke (background Peter/El)
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1025
Spoilers: None. Set somewhere in S5
Content Notes: GSW. Blood. No suicidal ideation.
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Neal is more okay with the thought of dying than he ever thought he'd be.
Author's Note: I have no idea when this was written. (I think I PM'd it to [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 for her birthday?) But I just found it in my drive and I figured, why not. Cleaned it up a little, axed a few words and sentences, and here it is. Title's from Come Away To The Water by Maroon 5 featuring Rozzi Crane.

Bleeding, fading, dying is more peaceful than Neal thought it would be. )

I don't know why I signed up for this, because I have enough fics going on already, but this just feels like one of those things you do when you're in fandom, like brushing your teeth. Anyhow. Card. Yay!

Card! )

So this is a thing I found somewhere on the LJ internet, and was going to post as soon as tests got over, but turns out, I'm a forgetful person.

Pick two numbers from 1 to 1544 and give me a character or a pairing (friendship pairings are totally cool also), and I will write you a ficlet thing based on one of the songs that the numbers represent!

Two numbers because I am unbelievably finicky about songs and whether or not they go with a character/pairing and you picking two songs increases the odds of you picking a song that I feel goes with the character/pairing you picked. If you get lucky and both songs fit the character/pairing, you may just get two ficlets! If you get super unlucky and both songs are songs I can't or won't write to, you can just pick more numbers. C:

White Collar is obviously my main fandom, but I'm willing to try my hand at Agent Carter, Agents of SHIELD, and... yeah, that's it. I still feel like I don't know enough about Natasha Romanoff to write her, sadly. And besides, I'm barely in these fandoms.

You should have seen me before this post though, I was downloading music like it was necessary for every song I've ever loved to be in my iTunes before this meme. (They keep disappearing because the drive I store my music on keeps crashing. Oh, the sweet days when I actually had all the songs I love.) I failed, because even I cannot download a thousand songs in an evening.

Title: Lose And You Will Answer To Me
Characters (Pairings): Alan Woodford
Rating: R (profanity)
Word Count: 407
Spoilers: S06E06 (Au Revoir)
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Alan Woodford is a very patient man.
Author's Note: This fic was born out of a conversation with [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux. We were discussing why Woodford was such an unconvincing villain, and then my brain went, 'Wait, maybe...', and then this happened. Also because of Elr's promptfest. There was one prompt - Woodford: Games - that I really wanted to write for, because it made me realize that barely anyone's written him in any significant way. (sapphire2309, champion of neglected characters. Sometimes I feel like slapping myself.) The only problem was, I didn't know what to write. Which meant that the prompt stayed with me, at the back of my head. And now I know what to write! And now I'll shut up.
No, wait. Title from The Ruler And The Killer by Kid Cudi. Okay, now.

It's starting to look like I'll have to play catch up with Halfamoon tomorrow. I'm in the middle of an essay which will not be done before midnight, by which time I will need to sleep. If anyone minds my posting two fics tomorrow, speak now or forever hold your peace (WHY DO I DO THIS OH DEAR GOD).

A White Collar/Scandal fanmix accompanied by about 1100 words of fic. Neal Caffrey and Olivia Pope. I'd say it was rated PG, PG13. I don't know exactly how sucky the fic is - I wrote it last night with a deadline (challenge 3 at [livejournal.com profile] gameofcards), I didn't even look it over, so it's probably terrible. But if someone's jonesing for fic, here, have some island!Neal angst C:

Spoilers - for White Collar, S04E02 (Most Wanted), for Scandal, S03E18 (The Price Of Free And Fair Election).

Sorry I don't explain much of the context for Scandal within the fic. Fitz is the POTUS, Olivia's having an affair with him. Olivia left DC and her life at the end of Season 3. It is as yet unknown where she went or if she'll ever return to Olivia Pope and Associates, her not-law firm (she will). In short, she and Neal are going through very similar experiences, and the fanmix and the accompanying pieces of fic are for both of them. This is assuming that they both escaped at about the same time, and that Olivia fled to Cape Verde.

I think that's about all you need to know for this to make some kind of sense.

I've been writing, but all of it is so unpolished and not worthy of being posted quite yet. I hope to post stuff soon! In the meanwhile, here, have a meme :D Code ganked from [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan.

Go to my Masterlist (I'll update it by tonight, I promise!) (I didn't. Who's surprised?) and pick a passage from my stories, up to 500 words, and comment to this post with that selection (including a link to the story being excerpted will be very helpful).

I will then give you a DVD commentary on that snippet: what I was thinking when I wrote it, why I wrote it in the first place, what's going on in the character's heads, why I chose certain words, what this moment means in the context of the rest of the story, awful puns [perhaps], and anything else that you'd expect to find on a DVD commentary track. You can ask me anything - character motivation, writing process, or if you disagree with the direction I took in a story, ask me to defend it.

Day 17 - A song that you hear often on the radio

Luckily, I just listened to the radio today, so I don't know about often, but I did hear these songs on the radio, so yeah. Hope that counts!


Stay by Rihanna ft. Mikky Ekko. OMG, this is the first time in this meme that there's a featured artist. How did that happen?

Anyhow. Beautiful song, lovely voices.

youtube )
lyrics )


Addicted To You by Avicii. Not much to say about this song, except that through it, I discovered Audra Mae, who has a really fabulous voice (she gave uncredited vocals for the song)

youtube )
lyrics )

...do you get the feeling that I rushed through this?

Part two. The Matt Bomer Is Hot part. The only reason why you're here.

Just when I was clinging to the last of my fading crush on Matt Bomer and wondering if I was really, truly, done with him (major crisis over the mast few days, I was panicking big time), I came across these pictures, and I kid you not, he fucked with my breathing. I;m not breathless, breathless isn't the right word. It's more like I'm incredibly conscious of every breath I take. I cannot believe I haven't seen these before. I just... LOOK AT HIM.

cut for MB's sexiness. MB's sexiness in this requires a warning. )

I can't believe I ever even doubted the crush.

Maybe it's the shadows, maybe it's his brood. He's just... really, really sexy in these pictures. Whew.

I'm gonna... go feast my eyes a little more.

afterthought - hmmm, addicted to you is really perfect in this context, isn't it?
