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 [ 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

Notes to Self  
This is my motivational and reminder post about the things that I have coming up and projects that I need to focus on. I'll be starting school (for the first time in 8 years) on May 20th, and I'll still be working full-time as well, so I've got to try to work out a schedule :)

New To Do List )

Important Upcoming Dates )

ETA: I got to cross something off!!! OMG!!! It's a May Day miracle! (what other holidays are in May? I mean, really?)

Jumping Off the Cliff  

I don't know why I thought (extended) hiatus would be kind of quiet. There are challenges and exchanges and communities doing all kinds of things.

I feel like I should really just be challenging myself to write all the ideas that I have swimming around in my brain (which is in addition to the Sandy auction fic that I have not forgotten about, I swear - I promise that it is next on my list regardless of these other projects).

[ profile] run_the_con was so much fun that I had to at least attempt some other fandom fun things. We'll see how it goes. And I want to play in the sandbox with the cool kids, so, with that in mind, I've signed up for [ profile] whitecollar_bb, which I'm using to write the Neal & Hughes story that I keep teasing in chat.

I will also be signing up for [ profile] wcpairings once I complete the sign-up form. I get to be the oddball in a pairings challenge asking for no NC-17. *facepalm*

Also, randomly - the muse is being a bastard and refusing to cooperate. Someone track him down and kick his ass for me.
