as a response to the collarcorner Prompt Fest #2Prompt/Request:
Neal being cuffed to a bed/radiator/chair/whatever in a burning room/building. Peter (or whoever you want to write from the team) gets him out there in the nick of time and has to deal with/treat a Neal that has inhaled (a lot of) smoke, is shocky and maybe has some light burns until the firefighters/EMTs arrive.Don't Want:
Death!fic; Neal being rescued and immediately handed over into the care of the EMT/firefighters; the H without the CRating:
A freak explosion hits the museum Neal happens to be visiting, and it's up to Peter find him.Author's Note:
This prompt really got my mind spinning, and I wanted to write my own story for it. Since the prompt has already been filled (and I've read and loved it), I have a feeling my story is not going to be able to live up to what silver_falcon24
posted. (Because, seriously, I am not that eloquent in English.) Still, I couldn't resist to do my own thing. In order to make this different, I've made an attempt to write in first person Peter point-of-view. Not sure if that'll work. And if it doesn't, I won't try it again, promise. So consider this kind of an experiment.
Statua di Vulcano-sized kudos goes out to rabidchild67
