sapphire2309: (Neal&Sara 2)
Title: inching closer to the scorpion's tail
Author: [livejournal.com profile] sapphire2309
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey, Sara Ellis (pre- and post-N/S) (don't ask me.)
Rating: PG
Word Count: 852
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Neal needs to know if this is their time, their place. If they can be us again.
Author's Note: Set post-series. Season 6 never happened here.
This is... kinda bittersweet? And maybe a bit too lovey-dovey? Honestly, it's a minor miracle I'm writing something... less angsty than my usual fare. I'll take what I can get, and I hope mods will too. The title is from Tori Amos's Sweet the Sting, which I did not listen to in the writing of this fic for fear of Neal and Sara jumping into bed, which is pushing the theme 'gen/PG schmoopyfluff' a bit too far, I think.
This was written for [livejournal.com profile] alltoseek's prompt 'sweet the sting' at [livejournal.com profile] runthecon. It's not explicitly mentioned, but it's there.

She's so beautiful, he wants to reach out and touch her. )

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).

Characters (Pairings) Sara Ellis, Neal Caffrey, Mozzie, (Sara/Neal)
Rating: NC-17
Word Count: 6456
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: Sara Ellis is confronted with a case that promises to be just as exciting as she expects it to be and a client who's going to be a pain in rather more unexpected ways.
Content Note: This story portrays the very beginning of a D/s relationship. If you'd like to know anything at all about kinks mentioned or explored in this story, please don't hesitate to PM me.
Author's Note: This fic is for [livejournal.com profile] citrinesunset, for the [livejournal.com profile] wcpairings exchange, with love. I hope you enjoy it! It follows one of your prompts as closely as I could manage. And I am so sorry for the delay!!! Real life staged multiple interventions.
Be warned, italics have been merrily overused.
Pardon the formal register of my writing - I've been watching far too much of The Royals.
The title's from the Nicki Minaj song Get On Your Knees. I would call it the anthem of this fic if my words didn't always end up this damned sappy. As things are, this fic is also inspired by Same Old Same Old, Dust to Dust, Eavesdrop, Disarm, and Poison and Wine, all by The Civil Wars, all delightfully angsty. The Civil Wars write and sing the best Neal/Sara songs. (Disarm is a cover, for the record.)
Sara's a lawyer in this AU. I, however, am not. (In this AU or in real life.) And even if I was, I still wouldn't have much of a clue of the American legal system, which is not the same as the Indian one. So I bullshitted my way through the legal stuff. Most of it is probably inaccurate. Prior warning issued. Sorry not sorry.
There will be more in this verse! Maybe. Look to Can't Hold You Closer Than This for my (totally nonexistent, I can assure you) reliability with delivering on fic-related promises. (This one might just get written, though, because it's mainly sexy fun times. No promises!)
I will give this fic another editorial look-over tomorrow, because I am paranoid as fuck.
Why are my fics turning into such lengthy monsters lately??? What happened to nice little thousand word fics???


The first time Sara Ellis lays eyes on Neal Caffrey, nothing remarkable happens. )

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.

Rating: PG

Author's Note: For [livejournal.com profile] runthecon, for the prompts 'New Beginnings' and 'Last But Not Least'. Unbetaed, written in a hurry, a little shit. Title from Transcontinental, 1:30 AM by Vienna Teng.
AU from end S5 in which Rachel is arrested but Neal isn't kidnapped, because I don't need that chaos going on in the background. I think I finished this just in time just a teensy bit late only because I dropped this little Neal+Sara plotline I had in my head. And it's still only half a story. Ugh.
I haven't posted a proper fic here in ages. I forgot how fidgety things get when you try to align things to the centre. Oh, commentfics, you are so simple and I adore you <3

She has only three framed pictures of Peter. )

This was meant to be an apology to [livejournal.com profile] sheenianni for breaking her heart, except that it's kinda low on the fluff factor. But you already knew that I'm not capable of writing non-angsty fic.

It's quiet. But the silence is weighed down by so many words Neal has left unsaid over the past few hours. )
sapphire2309: (heart)
I'm not crossposting these, so no header. I wrote these last night at about one a.m. for writerverse's lightning round, these are the first words I've written in a while, they're probably shit. Mostly here for the sake of having one single place for all my fanfic.

100 words each. Sara&Emily x 2, Sara/Bryan, Sara/Neal x 2. Rated R because of one curse word. Be prepared for too many damn heart metaphors and angst and internal contradictions. Sleepy writings. Whatever.
