Title: you've been taken by the wind

Rating: T
Word count: 2100
Content Notes: Character death, progressive memory loss, assisted suicide
Other Notes: This is a somewhat loose interpretation of the "de-age" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card. I floated the idea of doing a sort of Flowers for Algenon thing, and [livejournal.com profile] sholio and [livejournal.com profile] florastuart were unwise enough to encourage me.

Summary: He used to be able to look at a problem and see connections everywhere, golden glittering wires connecting everything, and now they're gone.

I know I'm way behind with my fic reading/commenting, so I feel bad about posting my own fic anyway! But this is a tag to the latest episode, so I thought I should get it up before the next one airs.

Title: We Build Our Lives On Shifting Sand
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter; Gen
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 2000
Warnings: SPOILERS for 5x11. Also please see notes below.
Notes: This is my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo fill for the "suicide attempt" square. This is NOT anything explicit; just a (slightly oblique) discussion of events in the episode.

Summary: Episode tag for 5x11, Shot Through The Heart. Peter gets a phone call in the middle of the night.

Peter was jolted out of a sleep thick with uneasy dreams )

Characters/Pairing: Neal, Diana, June, Peter; Gen
Rating: T
Word count: 9000
Warnings: None
Notes: This is my SandyAid fic for [livejournal.com profile] leonie_alastair, horrendously late! I really apologise, and hope you enjoy it.
I'm using this as my wild card square (smoke inhalation) in [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo. Thank you [livejournal.com profile] helle_d and [livejournal.com profile] sholio for advance reading!

Summary: An FBI agent, a CI and an ex-con infiltrate a party. Only one comes out.

Neal could practically hear Peter refrain from telling them that this wasn't a game. )

Okay, I THINK I'm done with tags for this episode now!

Title: With You Through The Dark

Warnings: SPOILERS up to 5x04
Notes: For the "Arrest" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.
Summary: Missing scene between 5x03 and 5x04. Peter visits to check on Neal.

For Caffrey-Burke Day! (Which I'm celebrating with a horrible cold. Yay.)

Title: Blackout
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter; Gen
Word count: 6500
Warnings: Looooads of angst.
Notes: I wrote most of this a year and a half ago for the "captivity" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card. Which, luckily, I have again this year. So. Thank you lots to [livejournal.com profile] sholio for the encouragement and helping me figure out the (lack of) plot!

Summary: Neal wakes up, and he's not where he expects to be.

Neal lay very still, not opening his eyes )

Title: Silent Night
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter; Gen
Rating: T
Word count: 3200

Notes: I actually wrote this ages ago, but [livejournal.com profile] sholio just convinced me to post it. (Thank you!) It fills the PTSD square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: "I've never killed anyone," Neal says. His voice is shaking. "You know that, don't you?"

More fic! The comfest prompts ate my brain a bit.

In a shocking departure from my normal shippy gen, this is gen-ish ship. (But mostly angsty h/c floof.)

Title: Unravelling
Characters/Pairing: Established Peter/Neal(/El)
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1300
Warnings: None
Notes: For [livejournal.com profile] love_82's prompt at [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarhc. This is so very plotless.

Summary: Some days are bad ones.

Unravelling )

frith_in_thorns: (Neal 1)
I am literally just here to throw fic at you all and then run away again, argh why is life.

Although one thing that makes terrible days much better is writing incredibly ott woobie Neal. So have some incredibly ott woobie Neal which is ridiculous and has no plot. It is for [livejournal.com profile] saphirablue because she has also been having terrible days at work.

Title: Variance
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter, El; Gen
Genre/Rating: PG
Word count: 2600
Warnings: None
Notes: Beta-read by [livejournal.com profile] helle_d who agrees with the assessment of ridiculousness and also says this is OT3 not gen. Hence the new tag for the intelligently-named category of "gen-ish".

Summary: "I'm staying back," Peter said, from the doorway. "I don't want to catch what you've got."

Variance )

frith_in_thorns: (Mechanisms - storybook)
Today is very much [community profile] the_mechanisms day. The début performance of Ulysses Dies At Dawn was a few hours ago and it was fantastic.

Therefore, I decided that this was definitely the impetus to post the fic I wrote for Once Upon A Time (In Space) which I have been poking at for way too long. (And now I'm trying to think of a good way to categorise posting fics for canons within canons, argh! I suspect this problem will have to wait until I write UDAD fic, or general Mechafic.)

Title: Falling
Characters/Pairing: Cinders, Rose; Pre-ship
Rating: T
Word count: 700
Notes: Written for [personal profile] amaresu's [community profile] fandom_stocking.

Summary: The war is lost, and the Princess's surrender the only formality left.

Title: Sense Memory
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter, Diana; Gen
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 2200
Warnings: PTSD. Also spoilers for 1x13 and brief reference to a scene from 2x16.
Notes: Written for [livejournal.com profile] kriadydragon's [community profile] fandom_stocking. (Also claiming as my Fire square on [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo.)
And [livejournal.com profile] leesa_perrie made me an awesome cover!

Summary: He can't look away from the flames and suddenly, horribly, it's Kate's face he sees in them; that moment of the explosion hanging suspended in white heat.

frith_in_thorns: (Neal 1)
This is the first of my [community profile] fandom_stocking fics to be posted to my journal. It's also possibly the strangest. [livejournal.com profile] sholio and I had a very long and exclamation-mark filled discussion recently about how the characters from White Collar would get on in Fallen London, which is a web game which is beautiful and dark and hilarious and all kinds of wonderful (The game description is in italics below the header). Then I wrote this for her. More ficlets in this 'verse will almost certainly follow.

Title: A Boat Trip
Characters: Peter, Neal, the Boatman, El
Rating: PG-13
Word count: 1550
Warnings: Character death as game mechanic. Entirely non-permanent.
Notes: Hopefully this will make some sort of sense without playing the game! For this segment, what you need to know: You have a Wounds quality. When your Wounds are high enough you die, and are sent to the river where you have to stay until you've reduced your Wounds enough to come back to life again. In Fallen London it is all but impossible to die permanently, and all the inhabitants know it.

Summary: Peter is temporarily dead. Neal thinks he should have some company.

- - -

Three decades ago, London was stolen by bats. Dragged deep into the earth by the Echo Bazaar. The sun is gone. All we have is the gas-light of Mr Fires.
But Londoners can get used to anything. And it's quiet down here with the devils and the darkness and the mushroom wine. Peaceful.
So welcome. Delicious Friend.

This is one of those things I'm going to start worrying about having posted very soon. I wasn't really trying to write this; it just sort of... happened. May be OOC.

Title: Shadows
Characters/Pairing: Neal/El/(Peter)
Rating: T
Word count: 750
Warnings: Very oblique discussion of depression/SI
Notes: For the square "scars" on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: It's easier to share secrets in the dark.

Peter's breathing is low and quiet )

frith_in_thorns: (White Collar - Neal+Peter - purple)
Title: Forward Momentum
Characters/Pairing: Peter, Neal, Elizabeth, Mozzie; Gen with canon levels of Peter/El
Genre/Rating: Angst, h/c; T
Word count: 1900
Warnings: Spoilers for 4x09, Gloves Off
Notes: Usually I try and write character stuff and it accidentally turns into h/c. This started off as me wanting to write a concussed!Neal tag to the episode and it somehow turned into Peter Talking To People. So yeah. *Claims this for my "combat" square on [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo*

Summary: Tag to 4x09. Neal's not in great shape after the fight, and he won't let Peter near him. But at least Peter has go-betweens.

Forward Momentum )

I wasn't planning on posting two vaguely supernatural fics one after the other, but eh.

Title: Old Dreams of Flight (1/?)
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter; Gen
Genre/Rating: Wing!fic, h/c; pg
Word count: 1600
Warnings: None
Notes: So I started writing this for [livejournal.com profile] elrhiarhodan ages ago, but never finished it. Okay, so it's still not actually completed, but I didn't like the ending I had, so I chopped it off and will write a sequel to this instead.
Fills the "wings" square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.
Now with a gorgeous cover made by [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13!



Summary: Neal has a hidden ace up his sleeve, but things like that come with a cost.

Okay, so this is a thing, which is pretty much all the angst ever. *iz not sure about posting this*

Title: We Sleep on Stones
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Peter; Gen
Genre/Rating: Angst; T
Word count: 1800
Warnings: Spoilers for 4x04; Character death
Notes: The title is from a song by Cherry Ghost. This is unbeta'd, and doesn't really have a point apart from Neal-angst. I did promise it to [livejournal.com profile] theoret.
I'm using this for my 'loss of voice' square in [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo.

Summary: Tag to 4x04, 'Parting Shots'. Neal in the aftermath.

Look at this, I've actually written relationship!fic. Eventually. I'm rather nervous about it.

Title: Love is a word too small
Characters/Pairing: Elizabeth/Peter/Neal
Genre/Rating: Romance, angst; Teen
Word count: 5300
Warnings: Not-very-explicit sex
Notes: This is my fic for [livejournal.com profile] ivorysilk in the [livejournal.com profile] wcpairings exchange, for her prompt "an OT3 love story".
Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] helle_d and [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 for the help!

This is basically my interpretation of their relationship from canon — I love the OT3 ship, but I don't see El and Neal wanting the same sort of relationship between them as El and Peter have, or as I can see Peter and Neal having. So this is my (slightly clumsy) attempt at writing that.

Summary: There are plenty of ways to be in love, and to be together. And there aren't always maps.

Elizabeth thinks she might have noticed the change in Peter's behaviour before he does. )

frith_in_thorns: (White Collar - Neal - hat steps)
I have a thing which I felt I should post before it gets jossed next week. I was holding onto it until I could find a way to conclude it, but I sort of really hate predicting canon, so... here's what I have. This is only posted to my journal for now because I'm not sure it really counts as a proper fic. And it was one of the ones that's easy to write, but hard to let other people read.

Anyway.


Title: getting kind of cold
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Mozzie; Gen
Word count: 1500
Warnings: depictions of depression
Notes: The title is from the song 'Landing In London' by 3 Doors Down. I think I can stretch a point and use this for the 'runaways' square on my [livejournal.com profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: He's getting tired, now, but unsure exactly of what. Crowds. Travelling. Tired of places he'd been missing.
