Fic Alphabet Challenge: Letter G: Greenstick Fracture (Gen)  
Alphabet Challenge: Letter G
Prompt: Greenstick Fracture (WC: 630)
Fandom: White Collar
Timeline: AU in Santa Day 'verse – Neal is 5
Pairing: Gen
Summary: Neal just wanted to play outside with Satchmo. He had no idea that falling out of a tree would hurt so much.
Note: The Santa Day 'verse is an AU where Peter and Ellen are siblings. She is a detective with NYPD, and her partner was James Bennett until he was arrested for the murder of a fellow cop. When neither he nor his wife could care for Neal, Ellen talked Peter and Elizabeth into taking him in. Also, many thanks go to [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for asking for wee!Neal and cheerleading.

Neal knew that he shouldn't be outside without Peter or Elizabeth, but Satchmo was making sad noises by the door, so Neal opened the door to let him outside. )

Fic Alphabet Challenge: Letter D: Drowning (Gen)  
Alphabet Challenge: Letter D
Prompt: Drowning (WC: 608)
Fandom: White Collar
Timeline: Anytime Neal's on anklet and working with Peter
Pairing: Gen
Summary: Neal tried to stay out of the way, but that didn't stop a bullet for hitting him and causing him to fall into the river. He can't seem to find his way to the surface though.

Notes: I've been doing a little self-invented challenge on my Tumblr to write at least two drabble/ficlets a day using alphabetical prompts culled mostly from H/C Bingo on LJ and Gen Prompt Bingo on DW. Each day is brought to you by a different letter. I'm going to start cross-posting the WC ficlets :) Also, many, many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for inspiring this one and finding the West 79th Street Boat Basin for me.


Neal couldn't believe that this case was ending on a boat in the Hudson River. )

Neal sniffled and tried to hold back the cough that had been tickling his throat for the last few minutes. )

WC - Redraw the Lines  
Title: Redraw the Lines
Author: angelita26
Rating: PG-13
Characters: Neal, Peter, Elizabeth, Diana, Hughes, OCs (The Hughes Family)
Spoilers: Up to the Season 2 episode Point Blank
Beta: [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama - I made many changes after her pass, so any mistakes are my own
Word Count: ~19,000
Summary: Reese Hughes' son was kidnapped when he was three-years-old. Twenty-four years later, when his daughter desperately needs a bone marrow transplant, Hughes discovers that his son has been right in his own office, working as Peter Burke's CI.

Notes: The prologue breaks from canon during the events of Point Blank, and as such, many of the words belong to Jeff Eastin, writer of the episode. Also, I researched the hell out of the medical aspects of the story, but I'm not a doctor, so creative license was taken at times.

( Neal heard Diana call his name, but he didn't care. He was so close to confronting Fowler, to confronting Kate's killer that nothing else mattered. He grabbed the knife from the display case and sliced through the rope holding the banner without much thought. His body and mind felt both disconnected and so incredibly in-tune with each other at the same time. It was exhilarating. )

Acknowledgements )

I dedicate this story to the memory of James Rebhorn. Hughes was one of my favorite characters, and I will miss him greatly in the last season of our beloved show.

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.

Spoilers: None.
Warnings: Brief mention of child abuse.
Word Count: ~1800
Summary: When a new teen at Ellen's Place runs away and Neal doesn't know when to rest, Peter steps in to take care of his man.

Notes: The amazing [livejournal.com profile] embroiderama graciously allowed me to write a little something in her Redwing 'verse - which starts with The Heart is Still a Redwing. I loved it so damn much that I had to write this; I hope I did it justice. (Title from Kanas' Carry On my Wayward Son)

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. )

Rating: PG

Spoilers: Through the Season 5 finale.
Word Count: ~1800
Summary: Post-S5. A quiet moment amid chaos is enough to break down walls that Neal's spent seven months building up.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarhc's Abduct-a-Palooza II. Specifically in response to a prompt by anonymous.

Neal padded quietly down the stairs and stood by the kitchen entryway to listen to the commotion in the dining area. It was late – after ten – and Peter's team was gathered around the table with laptops and case files and maps of the city. )

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13's Get Well Fest – my apologies for the late entry, and I hope you feel better soon! This takes place roughly during Season 2 and includes an established Peter/Neal relationship. Many thanks to [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector for her advice, her speedy proof-reading, and her titling help.

Peter's cellphone vibrated across the nightstand and fell to the floor with a clatter loud enough to wake the dog. Satchmo woofed and jumped off his dog bed to inspect the device. Peter pushed him away and picked up the phone, hoping none of it had disturbed El. )

Summary: Neal's not feeling well, and Sara makes sure that he gets the care he needs.

Notes: Written for [livejournal.com 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. )
