Title: Leaving Again
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG
Characters: Pre-Neal/Sara
Spoilers: Slight for In the Wind.
Word Count: ~650
Summary: Sara gives Neal some news that neither of them want.

Notes: I just found this in my WIP folder, but it was completed, so I'm posting. This is a relationship in a verse that I hold dear, and I hope that you enjoy! I should also note that this was my attempt at fixing a little timeline issue I created for myself by posting this verse in a non-linear fashion. :)

Neal looked devastated, and Sara felt like she was dirty gum on the bottom of his shoe. Worse even. )

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. )

Spoilers: None.
Word Count: ~1600
Summary: Neal's not feeling well, and Sara makes sure that he gets the care he needs.

Notes: Written for [ profile] sahiya's fandom stocking. Fair warning: I've never had appendicitis, so there's some dramatic license taken here beyond my research.

Neal and Sara spent Saturday having marathon sex and eating a number of foods off various body parts, so it was no surprise to Neal that he woke on Sunday morning with a vague stomachache and a low-grade fever. )

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. )

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 [ profile] embroiderama, and a special thanks to [ 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 [ 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 [ profile] aragarna how amazing her art is. I'm so grateful she created this cover for me. :D

Spoilers: Season 2’s Free Fall, random Mozzie-isms.
Word Count: ~3500
Summary: Sara and Mozzie must come to an understanding for Neal's sake.

Notes: Part of the Will ‘Verse – this takes place after No More Secrets and before Tabula Rasa. Thank you to [ profile] theatregirl7299 for giving it a look and making some needed suggestions and to the lovely ladies of [ profile] wcwu chat for their encouragement. Title is from the Melville quote under the cut. Also, this fills the "Broken Bone" square on my [ profile] 10_hurt_comfort table.

Neal wasn't surprised to find his bed occupied when he opened the door. The sun was setting over the city, casting long shadows inside the studio apartment and across Sara's sleeping body. )

WC - In the Pain, There is Healing  
Title: In the Pain, There is Healing
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG
Characters and/or Pairing: Neal/Sara, Peter/Elizabeth
Spoilers: Season 2's "Power Play", Season 4's "Parting Shots"
Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine.
Word Count: ~3300
Summary: Sara's recovering, Peter's giving advice, and Neal's searching for something, or someone.

Notes: This is the third fic in the Will 'Verse, and follows a few months after I Will Follow You… I recommend reading that one first.

Neal had turned out to be an amazing father, not that she'd doubted him. He had also been there for her throughout this whole nightmare, whether she'd wanted him to be or not. There had been many a night that she'd thrown him out of her hospital room, and he'd returned the next morning with blueberry muffins and apologies for pushing her too hard or too fast. )

WC - I Will Follow You... (Sara/Neal)  
Title: I Will Follow You...
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters and/or Pairing: Neal/Sara, Peter/Elizabeth, Mozzie
Spoilers: None
Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine. Medical jargon was researched, but no guarantees for accuracy. Much angst.
Word Count: ~6200
Summary: Neal and Sara's first date night after their son is born ends in a devastating accident that could forever alter their futures.

Note: Fills the Wild Card slot on my new [ profile] hc_bingo card, which I'll say is Accidents. Written for the [ profile] whitecollarhc Whump-A-Palooza prompt by [ profile] virgo_79 : Peter gets a call from the hospital that Neal and Sara have been airlifted in; they've either been in a really bad car wreck, or they've been the victims of somebody's work catching up with them (either one has to have a list of enemies a mile long at this point.) One of them is worse off than the other, and it falls to Peter to be the one the let the first one awake know what's happening.

Note 2: This takes place in a 'verse I'm tentatively (and cornily) calling 'Where There's a Will' in which Sara is pregnant when Neal returns at the beginning of season 4, and they make a go of it. This story takes place a little over a year after Wanted/Most Wanted and my story No More Secrets.

Bright lights suddenly engulfed the inside of the car as he reached for her and she tried to turn and look. Abruptly, the whole car jerked sideways and the terrible screeching of metal giving way to metal filled the night. )

Thanks for reading!

Title: No More Secrets
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG
Characters and/or Pairing: Neal/Sara, Peter/Elizabeth
Spoilers: Up to 4.02 (AU from there)
Warnings: As usual, betaed by my anal personality - all mistakes are mine. Alternate Universe. Neal/Sara relationship. Hurt with little Comfort.
Word Count: 2,063
Summary: Neal's recovering at the Burke's when Sara drops in with some news.

Notes: AU that begins after 4.02, wherein Neal and Sara were together the night before he fled NY. Also, her parents are dead. I couldn't remember/find info on their backstory.

There was a rhythmic thump for a few moments before the door swung open and Neal stood there, balancing on a pair of crutches. He was wearing a deep blue t-shirt and a pair of slate gray silk pajama pants. They both hugged his muscles in a most arousing way, and she had to turn her attention elsewhere.  )

Thank you for reading!
