Unorthodox Methods by Captanddeastar
Fandoms: White Collar, Supernatural
Pairings: Neal/Peter, background Peter/Elizabeth, Sam/Jess
Rating: PG-13
W/C: ~3,000
Summary: AU from original premise of SPN – Sam goes to law school and eventually joins the FBI, where he gets assigned as Peter’s probie, and the New York FBI office staff are amused, and eventually, slightly traumatized.

Peter pov fic, where Peter is jealous of probie!Sam&Neal, when he really really doesn't have to be. In this fic, El is as fabulous as always and Peter is hilariously insecure. Sam? Sam is a Neal fanboy. A gloriously poignant/funny fic where the Peter/Neal is lovely and Sam&Dean love is epic and beautiful.

rating: hilariful.

Wow. This was the perfect fic for me rn because I'm feeling conflicted as all hell about Fassbender and Fassy. This is a tumblr post from 2 weeks ago.


I’m having a hard, hard, hard time getting a handle on the whole Fassbender thing. On the one hand he seems like an awesome guy. On the other hand, Ike Turner and Chris Brown.

On the one hand, To Kill a Mockingbird. On the other hand, the world is full of instances where women are disbelieved when they accuse a man of— anything, pretty much.

On the one hand, it’s horrible to judge/think/accuse somebody of a crime they did not commit, and that makes them a victim. On the other hand, if we don’t believe her then we’re calling her a liar, without knowing her, and how impartial is that? And a liar about being the victim of domestic abuse…fucked up, ngl.

On the one hand, he’s a white man. On the other, she’s a WoC. (If you think this shouldn’t matter, I’m side-eyeing you soooooo hard.)

On the one hand, she accused him. On the other hand, she recanted.

On the one hand, she recanted. On the other hand, women recant ALL THE FUCKING TIME with bruises in their faces, loose teeth and cracked ribs.

On the one hand, she’s made these accusations before with other exes. On the other hand, people who have been abused tend to be abused more than people who have never been abused.

On the one hand, she was nowhere near him when she accused him. On the other, what better time to be proactive/brave/get her power back than when he’s really far away and can’t hurt her.

On the one hand, I really loved him before this. On the other hand, I don’t know if I can look at him the same way again.

The fic didn't magically solve everything for me, but I don't think it's supposed to. This fic encapsulates everything I love about fanfiction, blurring lines btw media and reality, examining motivations, using tropes and kinks, analyzing what is desired while desiring.

rating: meta-awesome.

a moment of silence for [profile] squishyball's deletion. she was an amazing awesome fun girl and i'm gonna miss her horribly. :((((((((((((((((

*those photographs of 6x18 are making me grin for days. spoilerspoiler )

*i was re-reading "Gone with the Wind" --which I hadn't read since idk? childhood? i've always been kind of curious about the South, so from an pretty early age i started reading books set in Dixie like they were set in a foreign country. reading GwtW is more like reading fantasy, no-- more like reading about a Dystopic world where a society fueled by slavery is considered glamorous and precious. that's the only way I could read about a Rhett Butler who killed an "uppity" n-word for insulting a white woman and not vomit up rage, because i remembered exactly how i read WATCHMEN and just When in Rome'd it. i guess that's how most people read GwtW these days. i hope it's not for the romance, though i've got to admit that Scarlett/Butler are the most dysfunctional couple in Christendom and assholes can be strangely attractive in fiction. they're like Liz and Darcy without any of the redeeming qualities that make all the fangirls want to be Darcy and want to marry Lizzie. ;D the novel was so freaking readable i pretty much breezed through the gazillion pages. now I want to read "Kindred" by Octavia E. <3

*[livejournal.com profile] furiosity is looking for great female characters of the last 20 years, here. some of mine? Elena, Carne Tremula; Agrado, Todo Sobre Mi Madre; Ofelia, Pan's Labyrinth; Shoshanna, Inglorious Basterds; Mathilda, The Professional; Phedre, Kushiel's Dart; Patty Hewes, Damages; Nicolette Grant, Big Love. there are a lot more inspiring ladies, but i thought these were mainstream/obscure enough (maybe not) not to overlap and be rec'd over and over.

in f.'s words: I define a "great" female character as anyone who has inspired me, whose actions or words moved me in a way that lasted, or who is memorable to me in an empowering way -- your definition doesn't have to be the same, and we don't have to agree on what's inspiring, lasting, or empowering.
