Title: Watching The Waves Crashing
Characters (Pairings) Kate Moreau, Alex Hunter (background Kate/Neal).
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 523
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Anyone can kinda sorta be friends, given enough alcohol. Fun and games don't hurt either.
Author's Note: This is just random floof. There's no plot here. Title's from Skies On Fire by The Green Children.
Apparently, according to my brain, Kate and Alex can only be friends when they're drunk off their asses. Okay then.
Also, I'm pretending that arcades are the same all over the world, because who has time for research, this is a kinda sorta last minute thing... don't tell anyone.
This is for [livejournal.com profile] sheenianni, for the [livejournal.com profile] wc_women_fest Holiday Exchange. I hope you like it!
Also, since it's well past midnight here, happy new year!! (Which also means this fic is late. ...it's our secret, okay? Shhhhh.)

Summary: Our favourite surgical interns discuss a rather frequent ER visitor.
Content Notes: Mention of a werewolf bite.
Author's Note: Set somewhere in season 1 or 2 of Grey's Anatomy, because I'm nostalgic, even though the timelines don't match. Also, we're pretending Seattle Grace is in New York. Or something.
For challenge 1103 - Paging Dr. Kildare - at [livejournal.com profile] tv_universe. Inspired by [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13's recent art piece, and the White Collar fandom's loving whumpage of our dear, long suffering Neal.
And I know, McSexy was one of the rejects for Mark Sloan's nickname, but I can't think of anything else right now.
Sorry about the messy dialogue tags. All the untagged ones are likely Cristina's. (Can you tell I love her? :D)

McSexy's back. )

Author's Note: Title from Rust Or Gold by Jill Andrews. S6 finale tag.
This is for my Music Is My Girlfriend meme (which is still open to prompts!), for the prompt Rust Or Gold - Neal, for [livejournal.com profile] treonb. My headspace is still shit. There is light in this story, though. (Let's not talk too much about the headspace.)
This is a sequel to She's Just Like The Weather, Can't Hold Her Together, and is set shortly after that (a hour at the very most, in fic-time).

Summary: Diana knows she really shouldn't be thinking about Sara.
Author's Note: For Day 1 of The Merry Month of Masturbation ([livejournal.com profile] mmom). Because why the hell not? :D I spent April focused on poetry with (Inter)National Poetry Writing Month in full swing. May's for you guys.
Title's from I'm With You by Avril Lavigne. (anyone who's read my depression related posts, don't freak out!! I'm okay. Just listening to this song for the story.)
In my head, this is part of the verse I set up in Get With The Program, (which I think I'm going to call the Fire'Verse) but waaaaay in the past. Because apparently I can't get that verse out of my brain now. This is allllll my own fault btw XD. I love this dark messed up shit. Though the Diana/Sara romance plot is probably the (only) ray of sunshine in this thing. Along with, you know, the eventual rescue. (Eventual. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA.)

Diana knows she really shouldn't be thinking about Sara. )

Spoilers: Through Season 5
Content Notes: Kidnapping, threat of violence.
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: With Neal, there's always been a line that Rachel wouldn't cross, somewhere between wanting his love at any cost and not hurting him. What if that line didn't exist?
Author's Note: Written late last night for the prompt 'cry me a river' for TVU bingo. Inspiration (and a direct quote) drawn from Maya Lewis (Olivia Pope's mother)'s line in Scandal: "He ruined you. Cry me a river, Livvie. Whatever."
If you want cheerful rainbow unicorn fic, you're gonna have to look elsewhere. Sorry not sorry.

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. )

Beta: The lovely [livejournal.com profile] percygranger. She saw this fic when it was about 2K, and gave me plenty of wonderful advice. It is now 4K. Any and all remaining mistakes are obviously mine. And a special thank you to [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux, who caught a few crucial errors while reading the finished fic!
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Sara may never learn how to fake love, but she’s always known how to fake okay. (And by the end of this story, maybe she won't even need to do that.)
Author's Note: The title is a slightly modified lyric from Eavesdrop by The Civil Wars.
This story has been in the works since July 2014. Here's proof. It has since hopped 'verses, grown quite a bit, and matured. Sara sounds much more like herself in this story than she did in the very first version.
I'll probably write Neal's side of the story (i.e. his recovery) sometime, but if this story is any indicator, you can expect to see it in October 2017. Oops.

I completed a 20in20 in a day. This has got to be some kind of achievement. (Well, I made some minor tweaks today, but the bulk of the work was done yesterday.)

I was expecting a lot more of Winona Ryder's face in this set. But it would seem that I adore Angelina Jolie a lot.

This one's for Challenge 2 of [livejournal.com profile] 20muses, for this lovely board game disguised as an inspiration post.

Author's Note: Title from the Bruno Mars song of the same name. Written for Challenge #7 - Weekly Quick Fic 3, and the prompts Exit and Perception, over at [livejournal.com profile] writerverse.
This is stupid and cliched and I adore it okay. I can't seem to shake my fascination with drunk!Neal. Whatever. Self indulgent fic FTW.
Part of the Amis Amants 'verse. For more in this verse, click here.
P.S. - K13 made art for this fic for my birthday! It's also at the end of the fic.

Credit: Elliott Brooks' Instagram for one image (the actress who (i think) played Neal's mother).
Author's Note: Title from I'm In Here by Sia. Made for the prompt 'imprisonment' on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.
I realize how close Eliza is to Elizabeth, but I have these brainfarts sometimes. And now she refuses to take on any other name. My brain, I tell you.

Summary: Rachel's second time in prison is less eventful than her first.
Author's Note: For Day 5 of [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, for the prompt Transformation, Rachel's transformation in prison. Title from Falling Is Like This by Ani DiFranco.


Her favourite hobby now is lying on the floor with her head resting on her arms and her eyes half-closed, thinking about nothing, slowly emptying out her mind, taking in the sounds, smells and some of the sights and doing not much else. )

Spoilers: 5x02, for Diana's plotline.
Warnings: Vague descriptions of assault, a little blood.
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: How Diana lost her hearing and found something far more precious.
Author's Note: Title from Somewhere Only We Know by Lily Allen (originally by Keane, but I'm listening to her version). Set post-S5 in a vague no-kidnapping AU.
For Day 3 of [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, for the prompt Lost and Found, Diana losing her hearing and finding something far more precious (why does this look like a c&p of my summary, MAYBE BECAUSE IT IS). Remember that little commentfic I promised to expand? This is that. Never say I never carry out any of my promises (I DON'T THO). Except research happened in between, so there are differences. And my writing style has gone wonky again (WHY CAN IT NEVER STAY STRAIGHT, I DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT I'M DOING ANYMORE), so yeah.
Which also makes this for the 'loss of hearing' square on an [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card Which has now gone into amnesty. Sigh. Anyhow.
Clearly, I'm in a weird mood.
I hope this gradually increasing word count thing isn't a holding pattern, or I may just be totally screwed.

Summary: The first item Sara recovered.
Author's Note: Title from Just A Little Bit by Maria Mena. For Day 1 of [livejournal.com profile] halfamoon, for the prompt Origins/Beginnings, a little Sara backstory. No guarantees that I'm doing all the days.
I don't feel like getting into Sara's head right now, so this is mostly dialogue.
This was supposed to be just humour, but my brain had other plans. Sorry.

"Did you get it?" )
s2309: (Neal 2)
Title: I'll Say Goodnight But It's Never Goodbye

Summary: Faking his death wasn't as easy as he thought it'd be.
Prompts: “He died whilst faking his own death” (“Gavin & Stacey”), The Vault
Author's Note: Title from Goodnight New York by Vienna Teng. For Challenge #12 - Weekly Quick Fic #5 - at [livejournal.com profile] writerverse. Episode tag for 6x06. I'm putting this down for the 'drugged' square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card, even thought it doesn't quite fit.
This fic is essentially me hurting Neal in order to deal with whatever residual rage the finale left in me. Hopefully, I'll treat him better next time. And I don't think I properly dealt with the shortness of breath. Oops. Sorry.
I almost rewatched the ep to write this, but decided that it was better for my sanity if I just went over the dialogues using springfieldspringfield. And then I ended up rewatching anyway. Sigh. And I have more tags in my head, though I'm not entirely sure that I'll manage to get them on paper, they hurt so much.
These words were hard to pull out, and they're not the best they could be, but they're words, so.
Also, my fixation with the present tense continues.

He'd hoped that Peter wouldn't make it, that he'd just see him in an ambulance before it screeched away. But Peter's there, using his badge to silence the paramedic so he can get to Neal. )
