She has time. Not much, but enough for a book, and love, and Cornish game hens. Enough for evening after evening of the same rhythm. Enough. )
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.

This is basically proof of life. Posting from phone, I apologise for any mistakes in advance. Will tag + xpost + edit this on Monday, because phone.
This is a (very short) sequel to When All Else In You Turns And Runs, in which Neal has essential tremor, restricted to his right hand during this fic and the previous one. I'm fairly sure that that fic is in my masterpost, for anyone who wants to read it before this.
This is not the first time I've written a drunk/dazed Neal on the Burkes' doorstep. I think he's adorable when he's a little loopy and craving affection. Recurring theme, will try not to repeat, etc.
Can you tell that it's late and I'm a little loopy myself?



Neal shivered as he paced across the length of the Burkes' doorstep. )

sapphire2309: (Neal 4)
Title: Not This Time
Characters (Pairings): Neal Caffrey
Rating: PG
Word Count: 350
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: The only real thing wrong with Neal is that he's young. And that's something time can always cure. Will he let it?
Author's Note: The summary is a modified version of this prompt from [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic (which [livejournal.com profile] tigriswolf, the prompter, mentioned is from Jack Schaffer's 'Shane'). I thought of the title because of a lyric from Christina Perri's Butterfly, and then immediately heard Taylor Swift singing "Not this time" (from I Know Places). Music. *sigh*. This is for Challenge 16a at [livejournal.com profile] writerverse. I see this as set in S2, after Countermeasures, but you can read it however you like :)

Neal's been in a dance with time ever since he ran away from home. )

Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 1555
Spoilers: For the series, especially 6x06
Warnings: presumed dead, detailed description of the effects of puffer fish toxin, including temporary paralysis, shortness of breath and vomiting
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
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. )

Rating: PG
Prompts: Pretty Lies, You Walk A Lonely Road
Word Count: 550
Spoilers: Till S06E02 - Return To Sender
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Summary: He doesn't need to fall for that lie again, because he'll fall hard, and it's entirely possible that he won't absorb the impact.
Author's Note: Title from the song of the same name by The Civil Wars, which I think is a cover of a song that was originally by Portishead. For Challenge #29 - Weekly Quick Fic #11, over at [livejournal.com profile] writerverse. I just wrote an honest to goodness episode tag, right after watching an episode. Never done that before. And this is the first time I've written Keller into a fic, so even though he does literally nothing, I'm calling him a character.

You're going to be free. )

Author's Note: I AM WRITING NEAL AND PETER AGAIN HUZZAH!!! But I committed a lot of run on sentence crimes. And welp, Neal is in way too much pain. And this is literally words thrown at a page and immediately posted, I haven't even looked over this once, I am going to regret this SO MUCH in the morning, omg. I think I should shut up now.

I feel like you should know that words aren't coming all that easily to me. I'm struggling against them, for the most part. And I have this weird block about posting writing as of late. But this fic happened relatively easily, and I want to share :)

ETA - OMG, you guys! [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 made me art for this fic!! And it's beautiful! Look :D

clicky for art!!! )
