tj_teejay: (Neal Peter - Trust Issues)
Title: Places To Go And Secrets To Keep
Author: TeeJay
Genre: Gen
Characters/Pairings: Neal, Peter
Written for: [livejournal.com profile] ariadnes_string as a response to the "Running Hot" multi-fandom fever comment fic meme
Prompt: Feverish Neal spills the beans
Would Like: Some time after the events of 3x01, Neal is ill/drugged/poisoned and in his delirious or simply kind of out-of-it state, he lets something slip about what he was really up in the episode. Peter hears (or overhears). What difference does it make that Peter knows?
I'm less interested in what Peter does with the information in the long term (though feel free to explore that) than I am in what difference it makes to Peter in the short term—looking after Neal, trying to get help for him. Does it change the way he treats Neal once he knows the truth? Feel free to make the scenario as mundane or as life-or-death as you wish.
Rating: PG-13
Warnings: Spoilers for everything leading up to and including 3x01 'On Guard'
Summary: When June asks Peter to keep watch of a fever-ridden Neal, the latter lets some info slip that he rather should have kept to himself and that gets him in a world of trouble.
Author's Note: Oh man, I'm doing it again. Seems like all I'm writing lately is Neal whump. But, well, it seems to be in great demand, so who am I to say no? He's also such an adorably easy whumpage target. Are two excuses enough to make it remotely okay?
This will obviously be AU-ish, with a pinch of added wishful thinking. Also, there's going to be unresolved angst. If you're a fan of happy endings, this probably isn't for you.
Tons of thanks to the trusty [livejournal.com profile] rabidchild67 for the beta.
