[sticky post]About this community
noiproksa
I'm only ever posting White Collar fics and vids to my journal, so I thought I'd create a community where I can post recs and meta as well. I won't promote this comm (at least not for the moment), so there's hardly a chance anyone will even stumble upon it, but for now, this is just a community where I can post anything and everything White Collar gen.

Since I'm a fan of the Neal & Peter bromance, I should probably have chosen the title "Neal & Peter gen". But I had that idea a couple minutes too late.

Title: Neal, Peter and the Great Outdoors
Author: kriadydragon
Rating: PG
Characters: Neal, Peter some Elizabeth
Length: 1,600 words
Summary: Peter and Neal go camping.

Why this must be read:

Imagine city boy Neal dragged along on a camping trip by Peter -- hilarity ensues. We have lots of h/c stuff in our fandom, but from time to time, a fanfiction that focuses on the humorous side of the show (without being crack) is a good thing and this is exactly what this fanfiction is. It will plaster a huge grin on your face.

Excerpt:
“So is this the part where we cry into the camera about how scared we are?”

“We're not lost.”

“Peter, we've been out here thirty minutes and found only two things on the list. You sure this is a scavenger hunt and not cruel and unusual punishment?”

Fic rec: Descending, slowly
noiproksa
Title: Descending, slowly
Author: winterstar95
Rating: PG
Characters: Neal, Peter
Length: 1,800 words
Summary: a feverish Neal paints; Peter worries.

Why this must be read:

Ghost artists (hallucinations) are coming to haunt Neal in this fic and Neal tries to cope with his emotional baggage by painting, but Peter is there for him. Gotta love the angst in this one, but the “c” part of h/c makes it all better and makes for a sweet ending.

Excerpt:
"Still failing, Mister Caffrey?"

He jumps from the sound of the voice behind him. As he spins on his heel, the room tilts and turns as if he is on a child's playground ride. The tone of the voice stops him and he grabs onto the easel again to steady himself.

"You will never be a true artist , Mister Caffrey, not without innovation, not without your own vision!" the ghost of his once art teacher says.

Her eyes have always bothered Neal. Cruelty, jealousy and pain lurk there; discontentment and disillusionment darkened her features. She envied his talent, but never complimented him. Her arms hold scars, long dripping wounds. Her blood smears over the floor. He watches the pattern of the blood as it spreads in a stain over the floor. He remembers her suicide. It marked his young life. He would never earn her approval, though he always strove for it.

White Collar fic rec

Just copy and pasting a fic rec from some time ago. (Although in the meantime the author started a new fic in the series and I can't recommend that one. In fact, I'd anti-rec the newest installment in the fic series. But you can still read the two fics that are recced here and it will come to a natural end because you can read each fic on its own. So you don't have to read the latest fic in the series at all and you won't miss out on anything.)
When I recced the third part of the fic series, that particular part hadn't been finished yet, but it's finished in the meantime.

I know that there are a few people on my flist who like the father-son aspect of the show as much as I do, so in case you haven't read it yet, penna.nomen started a fic series that handles this aspect beautifully.
It's an AU (if it were a canon story, it would be OOC, but in my opinion, it works very well in this AU) and there are three fics in this series at this point. I only read #1 and #3, so I can't say anything about the second fic in the series, but right now I am really in love with the third part.

I'll squee a bit about why this fic rocksCollapse )

Surrogate father-son trope in White Collar fanfictions


Pretty much all of my flist already knows that one of my favorite tropes is the “surrogate father-son trope” (or the trope of “father figures” or whatever you want to call it; I'm gonna stick to “surrogate father-son trope” for now).

fic rec: Don't Mess with the Hat
noiproksa
Title: Don't Mess with the Hat
Author: kriadydragon
Rating: PG
Characters: Neal, Peter
Length: 2,700 words
Summary: Neal's not feeling too good, and not for the reasons he thinks.

Why this must be read:

A very nice h/c Neal & Peter fic with a lot of friendship, caring and concerned!Peter. kriadydragon is one of my favorite Neal!whump writers and there's also always the right amount of comfort in her fanfictions.
My favorite part is the ending, though, which is very funny and sweet and with a nice twist, so read through till the last line.

Excerpt:
“Damn, Neal, your hand is really shaking,” Peter said after returning with sweats and a T-shirt.

Neal looked at the glass he'd been sipping from, the water's surface vibrating and creating perfect rings. He stared at it, enraptured, when a hand gripping his shoulder brought him back to the here and now. He looked up into Peter's face – his very worried face.

White Collar fic rec

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: gen, friendship
Characters: Neal & Peter
Clips: used through 5x06
Length: 2:47
Summary: 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.
