Title: Secret Santas
Author: angelita26
Characters/Pairings: Neal, June, Sara, Peter
Rating: PG
Word Count: ~1100
Summary: Stand By Me 'Verse. It's Christmas, and the Ellington house has a rule about Secret Santa gifts: they have to be homemade.

Neal coughed into his elbow and turned back to the sketch he was frantically trying to finish before Christmas. )

WC - The Silent Language of Grief  
Title: The Silent Language of Grief
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Gen – Neal, Peter, Elizabeth, Mozzie, Diana, Jones, June, Christie
Spoilers: Up to and including about half of Judgment Day.
Warning: Presumed Dead Canon Character. A metric ton of angst.
Word Count: ~4500
Summary: Neal jumps, Mozzie plots, Peter grieves.

Notes: Fills the "grief" square on my H/C Bingo Card. This story diverges from canon during the events of Judgment Day. You can blame/thank [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 for this – she sent me an amazing piece of art that I couldn't stop thinking about. The cover art is all hers (click it to enlarge). Also, much thanks to [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama for her help and excellent thoughts and suggestions and [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for her brainstorming genius.

ETA: Please check [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13's post with the original artwork that inspired this story. It's hauntingly beautiful.



Peter hadn't slept in three days. Every time he closed his eyes he saw the tram, saw the water, saw Neal fall. Every damn time. )

WC - A Little Hope for Their Future  
Title: A Little Hope for Their Future
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Neal/Peter/El, Diana, Jones, June, Mozzie
Spoilers: None.
Warnings: Sexswap, pregnancy, brief discussion of unrealized abortion
Word Count: ~9700
Summary: Strange things have happened to Neal in his illustrious life; none of them stranger than waking up as a woman.

Notes: This was meant to be crackfic - it isn't. There's also some scientific/medical/pregnancy handwaving necessary for the sake of the plot. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for beta-ing and hand-holding, [livejournal.com profile] citrinesunset for the encouragement, and chat for all their help.



When Neal woke in the early hours of the morning, sandwiched between Peter and Elizabeth, he shifted uncomfortably and wondered why his body ached and his head felt fuzzy, like it did when he had a fever.

Note: Link redirects to AO3 due to length.

ETA: [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13 made a gorgeous, amazing cover, and I've added it above. It's clickable for a much larger version. Check it out!

Peter had sent three texts to Neal without a response, and he was getting worried. When he finally got a break, he stepped outside the precinct to grab a cup of coffee and a sandwich and to call Neal. )

Warning: Off-screen major character death
Word Count: ~1300
Summary: After an op goes terribly wrong, the loss is all but unbearable.

Notes: Much thanks to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild for the beta and the encouragement. This ficlet was inspired by her wonderful story, Too Young to Feel This Old. Also, thank you to [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama, [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13, and [livejournal.com profile] sapphire2309 for the reassurances. I've never done a serious death!fic before.

When Peter wakes up, the first thing he notices is that the scratchy hospital sheets have graduated from annoying to itchy. The first thing he sees is Neal sitting in a chair in the corner, tailor style, watching him. )

WC BB 2013: The Lost Boys  
Title: The Lost Boys
Characters/Pairings: Gen – Neal, Peter, Mozzie, Sara, Diana, June, Byron, Hughes
Rating: PG-13
Word Count: 10,298
Warnings: Off-screen assault and discussion thereof. Teenage AU.
Summary: Neal sneaks out one night and is assaulted by bullies from school. While he recuperates in the hospital, Peter and Mozzie take matters into their own hands.
Author's Note: 1) White Collar and the recognizable characters do not belong to me. 2) Beta credit goes to the amazing [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama, and a special thanks to [livejournal.com profile] theatregirl7299 for giving it an early read and cheerleading. 3) This story takes place in the same universe as Stand By Me but it is not necessary to read that ficlet first. All you need to know is that Neal, Peter, Mozzie, Diana and Sara are all foster children living with June and Byron in upstate NY.

Art and userpic by the very, very talented [livejournal.com profile] aragarna, who took on this very difficult project and made such amazing artwork. Click here to see the full size awesomeness.

Neal cried out when the bright light pierced his aching head and stumbled back until he fell on his ass in the middle of the floor, surrounded by the pens and paintbrushes he'd knocked off his desk. )



ETA: Please tell [livejournal.com profile] aragarna how amazing her art is. I'm so grateful she created this cover for me. :D

Notes: Thanks to the [livejournal.com profile] wcwu chat for the encouragement! Also, all Mozzie quotes are from Nietzsche.

Sometimes animals bond in stressful situations, and Peter was certainly under a lot of stress yesterday. )

Peter took a deep breath as he stood in front of Neal's door, juggling a six-pack and a bottle of wine. It was after eleven at night, but tomorrow was going to be a long day. Peter wanted to grab a few minutes with Neal while they had the time. )
