tj_teejay: (Neal Peter - Bench By The Water)
Title: Bouncing Back
Author: TeeJay
Summary: Another illegal back room operation, it had seemed so straightforward. Neal had done this a number of times. Maybe they were getting sloppy, but this one hadn't quite turned out the way Neal (or anyone) had expected.
Written for: [ profile] kriadydragon for the [ profile] collarcorner Prompt Fest #3
Prompt/Request: "What could possibly go wrong?"
Would Like: An undercover operation in which things go wrong for reasons beyond anyone's control, and Neal is caught in the middle. Neal getting roughed up in some way, with lots of comfort and protective Peter afterwards. I'm very much a sucker for aftermath so if you want to jump straight to Neal being rescued/found/helped/what-have-you I'm cool with that.
Don't Want: Neal being at fault. Major whump in which the entire story is nothing but Neal being explicitly tortured (example: strung up by his wrists and whipped/scored with knives).
Characters: Neal, Peter
Genre: Gen
Warnings: Hm, I dunno... Graphic violence warning for folks with a vivid imagination? Also, spoilers for 1x14 'Out of the Box'.
Author's Note: I think we need to form a Neal!Whumpers Anonymous. Is there a way to set up a 12 Steps manifesto towards how not to enjoy writing/reading about one of your favorite characters getting hurt? I surely need it because this prompt totally pushed my buttons. *sigh* So here I go. Again. And I'm warning you, this one's a doozy.
PS: Partially inspired by the author's ridiculously amazing stunt of spraining her pinky in her sleep.
PPS: Once more, thank you to the wonderful [ profile] rabidchild67 for the beta-read and the wonderful advice to take this one further than I initially meant to.
Disclaimer: Bla bla Jeff Eastin, bla bla USA Network. Bla bla not mine, not making any money from this. Bla bla characters should be totally mine, especially Neal welcome.

tj_teejay: (Neal Peter - Then Prove It)
I already wrote a few bits and pieces about the episode in comments over at [ profile] rabidchild67 's journal, but I have more to say about this one. I actually have something to say about previous episodes as well, but there is only so much time I have in between all the business trips and icon challenges and pesky real life things taking time away from online shenanigans.

Can you say... anticlimax? )
