[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!

s2309: (Kate)
Title: Tomorrow Is A Different Day
Characters (Pairings): Kate Moreau, Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke, Alexandra Hunter, Vincent Adler, Garrett Fowler (Kate/Neal)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 4990
Spoilers: For Kate's storyline through seasons 1 and 2
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Kate's spent her whole life investing in her tomorrow.
Author's Note: This is for [livejournal.com profile] runthecon, for the prompt 'tomorrow is another day' from [livejournal.com profile] aragarna.
Title's from Avril Lavigne's Tomorrow. There are lyrics from Halsey's album BADLANDS all over the story. They serve as sort of introductions to the various little disconnected pieces. So this isn't exactly a songfic, buuut it kinda is.
Many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] reve_silencieux for the speedy proofread and the cheerleading!
I should mention that this is a slightly old idea, and it had around 300-400 words written in advance, but this thing be looong (LOOK AT THAT WORDCOUNT, GUYS), so I don't think it makes that much of an impact? I mean, I knew the direction the story was headed in, but I had very few actual words written in advance, so. I hope that's okay?

As seems to perpetually be the case with me, this story isn't complete. Yes, you read that right. Almost 5k words and this monster wants more. Piece of shit.
Slightly spoilery content note-like thing (spoils a character arc): I know the first sentence is what it is, but Kate isn't vilified in this story. She loves Neal. She means well. She's allowed to be angry, and think freely, and do things that may hurt Neal without her realizing it. Peter, who is the antagonist of her story, is on the receiving end of much of her anger, but that doesn't make either of the two characters evil. They're just different people who happen to have made terrible first impressions on each other. Not every human on the planet has to get along like a house on fire. And finally, I'm sorry if Peter seems out of character to you, but I stand by his characterization in this fic.
I kinda sorta borrowed the "ornamental, not functional" idea from this really painful insult delivered by the President to the First Lady on Scandal. I wouldn't have mentioned it, but I couldn't find any alternate wording, so. :P
This is a bit of a bricolage, but I enjoyed writing it, so. :D

Also, it's 2 am, I haven't given this fic my usual final once-over because I'd like to sleep, please forgive mistakes and clumsy phrasing and such. ETA - Edited!

s2309: (guitar)
Title: Prisoner of History
Characters: Eliza Caffrey/Alison Brooks (Neal's mother), Kathryn Hill/Ellen Parker, Neal Caffrey/Danny Brooks
Rating: PG-13
Tracks: 12
Total word count (titles, lyrics, explanation): 687
Cover dimensions: 400x400 pixels
Tracklist dimensions: 400 x 400 pixels
Content Notes: Depression, alcoholism.
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Eliza never wanted to go into WitSec. She thought it'd be like a cage, a prison for her instead of James. It wasn't as bad as she'd imagined. It was worse.
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.

So I have exams, and then more exams, and will be avoiding the internet as much as possible till about June. I may pop in more often in April, but March and May and the beginning of June are going to be so shitty it's unreal.

I will still be writing (because I've learned my lesson from last time, and i'd like to get out of this sane) but I may not post any of it, and I definitely won't crosspost or read the amazing things that you write or reply to comments or comment on fics, and I'll generally be a very suckish fandom person till this is over, but in case you forget while I'm gone, you all are amazing people, and there is a special place in my heart for all of you, and i will be back. (probably not unscathed, but you can't have everything.)

I LOVE ALL OF YOU REMEMBER THAT OK?

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).
s2309: (June)
My time is being stretched very, very thin between schoolwork and editing and writing of my own, so till the end of October, unless I feel like I have time, I'm not going to be reading longfic. I know it's big bang season and there'll be a lot of longfic out there, but I really don't have the time for it right now. So, like, I'm still around, but please don't hate me if I don't comment on your fic?
