I just read a series of oneshots that is so very cute and in character (Neal and Peter centric, of course): Handcuffs by Jet44. The oneshot that I liked best is the newest installment, Meet Neal Caffrey
, which is about Peter arresting Neal for the first time (the stuff after Neal was handcuffed and led away that we never got to see in 2x11).
I am always so giddy when I find a fic that manages to touch upon the father-son like relationship between Neal and Peter without making it over the top or OOC. It's just too rare (I think I know of two, maybe three fics that managed that, which is just not enough.)
Another favorite is Blast Zone
, which deals with what happens between 1x14 and 2x01 -- very emotional and an excellent h/c fic.
But maybe you should just read your way through all eight oneshots and decide which ones you like best.
I also made a vid to go along with this fic:Music: River Flows in You (Yiruma) (and piano & cello version)Genre:

A vid about the various times Peter has cuffed (and uncuffed) Neal. Always with care and out of a need to protect and help Neal.
