Fannish Five Things Meme  
Started by the amazing [ profile] frith_in_thorns

This looks both fun and terrifying :)

You post a topic, list, category, whatever, in my fandom in the comments. (examples: "Five Dates X Regretted Going On," or "Five Things Y Has On His Shelf", or "Your Five Favorite Songs to Write to). I'll answer with a list of five things.

My main fandom is White Collar, but you could also go outside the box with Supernatural or Dark Angel if you want.

Five songs Neal likes to sing to El when she's sick or sad

1. Soft Kitty - During that bout of flu, when both were curled up in the big bed being miserable together, they became addicted to Big Bang Theory. And they both totally shipped the Shamy.

2. Dress You Up In My Love (Madonna) - Neal sang it when he helped El get dressed after her fever broke from a case of strep throat. She could barely talk, but she giggled madly at him as he sang the song and gave her a quick sponge bath and then helped her into flannel pjs.

3. Can't Buy Me Love (The Beatles) - Elizabeth introduced Neal to the movie when she was down in her back after lifting too many boxes at a last-minute event, and he sang the song whenever she asked because it made her smile in a way that lit up her face.

4. Strangers in the Night (Frank Sinatra) - The night that Elizabeth's mother died from a long illness, Neal put on the Sinatra album and held her close, dancing with her, as she cried in his arms. Peter had gone to pick up their take-out, and it was the first time she'd let herself cry after hearing the news.

5. Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepson) - When Elizabeth had her wisdom teeth removed, this song came on the radio and she begged Neal to sing it over and over until the medication wore off and she was horrified by her song choice.

You know what I love about this meme? So many of the answers peeps are coming up with could become stories. I love the possibilities.

I know, right? It's been really fun to read all the little snippets of possible future stories (some of them are plot bunnies, just dying to come out - I know it!)

1. His spunk

2. His optimism

3. His ability to close a lot of cases (despite his methods)

4. His loyalty to Peter (despite dragging Peter closer and closer to the line with each case they work)

5. His intelligence and thirst for even more knowledge

Re: 5 fannish meme
Hi anon! This one was hard, and I hope you like the ones I chose :)

1. Mac and Cheese, baked to excellence, because when you're sad on the anniversary of your sister's disappearance, nothing's better than comfort food made by someone who loves you

2. Lemon Ricotta Pancakes because not every breakfast is interrupted by Peter, and Neal needed to use the lemons that Mozzie gave him from the lemon tree he keeps at Monday.

3. French Onion Soup because Neal makes amazing soups, and it's his specialty.

4. Sweet Glazed Salmon because Neal knows, somehow, that salmon is her favorite food and he makes the sweet ginger glaze from scratch for her birthday and sometimes just because he wants to.

5. Crème brûlée because Neal's great with a torch, and he always caramelizes the sugar to crispy perfection.
