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. )

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. )

It's been a while since I threw a tiny fic out there. It's been a while since I threw a fic out there. Sorry.

Rating: PG
Word Count: 1169
Spoilers: Vague for S3 & 4. Minor reference to S05E04.
Disclaimer: White Collar is Jeff Eastin's brainchild. Not mine.
Author's Note: Set post anklet, ignoring S6. Written for Challenge 14 in the current Writerverse phase. Title is a lyric from Overcome by Better Than Ezra.
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. )

I would most probably have written about Sara, but I just really really wanted to write Lauren for some reason.

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. )

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.
