Plus, there are two lines I don't expect to ever cross in the White Collar world (which are better described here). I write my own characters for that kind of treatment. :)
If I don't say it enough, thanks so very much for reading.
The Effects of Certain Experimental Treatments on Short, Bald Men
Mozzie's attempts at a treatment for a very rare disease he's probably never going to get go awry. Neal deals. A fill for my Round 5 h/c bingo, surprise sex swap. There really isn;'t much actual hurt, because, well, there just isn't. Neal's nerves are pretty shot.
A post-5.13 fic about Neal's kidnapping. Also a fill for the Round 5 h/c bingo, Wild Card square ("kidnapping).
Speaking of that bingo card...
Maybe this will be the year I actually write five in some kind of line or something.
A fill to answer the question, "What if Jones arrived too late when the Russian thug slammed Neal's head against the wall," during 5.06, Ice Breaker.
A story about childhood memories, deviled ham, and home cooking. Written for the "comfort food or item" square on my h/c bingo card, and submitted for Caffrey-Burke Day. Yes, the beginning is completely different than the S5 premier, but it's all fiction anyway.
Down By The River
Everyone always says you can drown in just a few inches of water, but, really? A fill for the "drowning" square on my h/c bingo card.
The title comes from an old Neil Young song, but that's because I couldn't think of anything else. No one gets shot.
Wonder Why We Ever Go Home
June has a rough night; Neal is by her side. A fill for the "taking care of somebody" square on my round 4 h/c bingo card.
The title comes from a Jimmy Buffett song, "Wonder Why We Ever Go Home" (strangely enough). It's about getting older and time racing by, which I think would be on June's mind. Here's a youtube link, if you've never heard it.
Round 4 h/c bingo card
(so I don't have to keep scrolling - talk about lazy)
Five Times Neal was Sick (and slept on the Burkes' couch)
An upper respiratory infection after Free Fall, a headache from his time in Avery's vault, exposure to an eye irritant, a broken arm, buckshot to the chest. Good thing the Burkes have a couch.
Elizabeth's insistance that Neal lie to Peter to keep his out of Neal's search for Ellen's evidence box has unintended consequences.
Tag for Brass Tacks.
Soft Words to Light the Darkness
Neal, Elizabeth, trapped in a storage unit as a result of a raid with an unexpected outcome. This was originally written for the LAS challenge beginning Fall 2012.
Trust Takes a Tumble
It turned out that fall Neal took while preventing Sophie Covington's kidnapping was a bit more serious than he realized.
Written for the HC Advent 2012
Exigent Circumstances Reconsidered
Peter thought that Neal's plan to catch Curtis Hagen had been brilliant. Then he reconsidered.
Tag to the Pilot
A case brings back nighmarish memories of being Danny Brooks.
Warning: risk of child sexual assault
A Walk in the Park
It started out as a simple walk in the park. Then a shot was fired. Maybe.
" Everybody gets one big mistake in life, and one opportunity to fix it. I believe in second chances, Miss Hunter." The opportunity that Adler offered Alex.

Stuck (in the metal with you)
You know those metal grates in some New York sidewalks? The ones over the subway tracks? The ones that are perfectly safe to walk on? Unless somebody did something really, really stupid, and you're wearing a tracking anklet.
Written for the HC Freak Accident Fest.
I'll be Seeing You
Neal made it through two months of prison after Kate's death, then through a major bank robbery case. Then comes his first weekend out with nothing to occupy him.
Tag to Withdrawal
Last One Standing
Neal, a scared probie, and guns. Fluff, really.
In order to complete an operation, Hughes must step outside of the office and into the van. Then he has to step outside of the van and break a rule or two.
Peter doesn't realize the toll an undercover operation is taking on Neal until June forces him to notice. Then he has to send his exhausted CI out to seal the deal. My first attempt at a case fic.
Diana's New Friend
Diana is assigned protection duty. It's not a good fit.
Be My Host
A felon walks into a thrift store and finds a new confidant and a home. Title from the song, Be My Host, from the musical "No Strings," starring the wonderful Diahann Carroll.
Tag to the Pilot
Neal and the Copperhead
Neal gets bitten by a snake on his way into work. The day goes downhill from there.
