frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Neal+Peter 1)
Right, this is the thing I am posting for my [ profile] hc_bingo's "accidentally mating for life" square because I still HATE all iterations of that trope and this is literally the closest thing I'm ever going to get to it.

This is a fic snippet from when [ profile] sholio and I accidentally started writing a White Collar AU in which all the characters were Fae. Well, she wrote setup and world building and excellent stuff like that, and then I skipped way ahead because I wanted to write gratuitous hurt/comfort. So when you read this and go "but there's no context, what happened previously?" the answer is that I don't know because never got around making actual plot. Hopefully the h/c will suffice for now.

Relevant background: Neal is Cait Sidhe — a cat fae — and Peter is half Cu Sidhe and half Tuatha De Dannon, so half dog fae and with teleporting powers. Peter is a knight in June's court, and Neal is… Neal. Then plot stuff happened. Neal got shot. The usual.

1000 words, gen.

I can't believe what I'm doing for you, cat )

Title: if you hurry you can still catch the tide
Characters/Pairing: Kate, Adler, Neal, Fowler; Kate/Neal but mostly gen
Rating: T
Word count: 2,500
Content Notes: Coercion/blackmail (non-sexual). Season 1 AU.
Other Notes: Written for [personal profile] magibrain's prompt on [ profile] collarcorner. Title from a Seanan McGuire song.
Claiming as the "caught in a robbery" square for my [ profile] hc_bingo card.

Summary: Kate is a selkie. Adler stole her skin.

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Neal 1)
This fic requires a little explanation. The mechanic used within is adapted from the computer game Bioshock Infinite, purely for my own amusement. Absolutely no knowledge of Bioshock is required to read this fic, and no actual game character or settings are used "on-screen" (this being set some 50-odd years after the canon), but the fic does spoil a couple of the key reveals of the game. If you want a quick overview (and to see the inspiration for this fairly bizarre crossover), I can't recommend this fanvid by [personal profile] violace highly enough.

Title: Laws of Gravity
Author: [personal profile] frith_in_thorns
Characters/Pairings: Neal, Elizabeth, Peter, Mozzie; mostly gen but with various alt-pairings in different sections.
Rating: T
Word count: 15,000
Content Notes: Spoilers up to the end of season 5. Acts of violence with ambiguous results. Mentions of cancer.
Other Notes: Beta-read by [ profile] sholio, and also written for her prompt at [ profile] collarcorner. This fills the "magical trouble" square on my [ profile] hc_bingo card.
The absolutely STUNNING art is by the amazingly talented [ profile] kanarek13. Thank you so much! ♥ (Tell her how awesome it is!)

Summary: When the hood comes off, Neal learns that his kidnapping was masterminded in a different universe altogether, by someone utterly unexpected. And then an accident sends him tumbling between worlds, lost and in freefall…

For the 2013 White Collar Big Bang.

Title: Hold With All You Have
Characters/Pairings:Neal, Peter, Diana, others. Gen with mild Peter/Elizabeth, Diana/Christie, and Diana/OFC.
Rating: FRT
Word Count: 32,500
Spoilers: Plot points from early season 4.
Warnings: This is an apocafic, dealing with a pandemic. Quite a few warnings are included in that, including disturbing descriptions, violence, a lot of general background death, and death/implied death of canon characters. (Specifically: Christie's death is described; Satchmo dies off-screen; other characters including June, Jones and Hughes have unresolved fates.)
Author's Note: This fills the "apocalypse" square on my [ profile] hc_bingo card. It is also very much the longest story I have ever sat down and written. I very much hope you enjoy it!
Beta: [ profile] sholio, [ profile] florastuart and [ profile] helle_d, who were all wonderful and extremely patient with me. Thank you so much!
Art: The amazing art is by [ profile] sholio. Please let her know how awesome she is!

Summary: A lethal epidemic rips through New York. In the aftermath, Neal, Peter and Diana must work together to survive, and to search for those who left the city before lock-down. And after they have to keep on surviving.

Title: Thefts of Particular Character
Characters/Pairing: Neal, Mozzie, Peter, Diana
Rating: PG
Word count: 6400
Warnings: None
Notes: The “Thefts” storylet in-game allows you to steal high-level items, with a brief description of where you’re stealing them from. This seemed eminently suited to Neal.

Summary:If you’re in need of particular items, you could go shopping. But who does that? (Or: Five times a heist went as planned, and one time it didn’t.)

frith_in_thorns: An open black umbrella with small red hearts falling out of it (.Love)
Untitled Kitten!AU #1 for Eternal Law

This is another of my [community profile] fandom_stocking fics, this one written for [ profile] helle_d, and it is [ profile] hedgebackwards's fault. It is also for the five other people in the world who care about Eternal Law. (It is a show about some incredibly angsty angels being incredibly bad at being both angels and lawyers, and a fallen angel, Richard, who is also incredibly angsty and hopelessly in love with Zak. Set in York and starring Sam West's face.)

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, this could probably be just as well read as a random fic about three incredibly angsty kittens.

If you let Tom starve to death you'll have no one to torment. Just think how dull your life would be then. )

Masterpost for the Fallen London 'verse (fics by both myself and [ profile] sholio)

London is by no means the only thing in the vast cavern of the Neath; there is also the unterzee, or zee for short. On which one zails, to reach the lands beyond — Polythreme, The Iron Republic, North. It can sometimes feel like it's taking forever to cross it. Sometimes one encounters other zailers, or… less pleasant things.

Title: Fair Zailing
Characters/Pairing: Peter, Neal, El; Gen
Rating: PG
Word count: 1800
Warnings: None
Notes: This is basically floof. I know, I'm surprised too. (I will write another one with All The Peril.)

Summary: It's a long voyage across the broad unterzee.

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (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. [ 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.

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 [ 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 [ profile] hc_bingo card.
Now with a gorgeous cover made by [ profile] kanarek13!

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

frith_in_thorns: Unfortunately, you'll also all blow up. (Books - Discworld - Words)
Um, so. This is a thing that I have written. You can probably read it without knowing The Hunger Games as it's a "characters from one canon put into the setting of the other" sort of AU, rather than a strict crossover - I've put some of the background for the Games below.

Context for the setting )

Title: life is fragile as a dream
Fandom: White Collar/Hunger Games AU crossover
Characters/Pairing: Elizabeth, Neal, Peter, Diana; Gen with hints of El/Peter
Genre/Rating: Action, angst; 15
Word count: 3000
Warnings: Graphic violence, character deaths
Notes: [ profile] hoosierbitch and [ profile] rabidchild67 encouraged me, and [ profile] helle_d beta-read (and listened to my long, long spiels of canon-geek justification for everything in this fic). I blame all of you guys for this *g*
Apart from the context of the Games (see above), I don't think there are really spoilers for The Hunger Games in here. (This is an AU for both canons.)
Also, I've just realised that I can totally use this for the [ profile] 10tropes challenge as my Beware The Nice Ones fic.

Summary: Elizabeth is no fighter. The only bets are on how soon she'll die.

Summary: Written for this prompt on the meme: Sherlock is a faerie that lures John under the hill.
