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.


IDK FASSBENDER

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. :((((((((((((((((

* I have some of [profile] yourperiphery 's fics. If anybody wants them, hit me up.

* Apparently, only [profile] jetaimerai hasn't received the Holiday package. Everybody else got theirs. I sent another today, because it's not fair you haven't gotten anything. If you get two, dollface, then good for you.

* I made an easily misunderstood cis-sounding comment in Fanficrants and so I'm trying to find books that deal with transgendered people. I have friends who are transgendered and *TMITMITMIcoolstorybro* but that means diddly, and I'm well aware of how "I have friends who are X, Y, Z" sounds. In fact, I'm not even sure I'm using the term correctly or I sound like a cis-douche. Funnily enough, I was reading Beauty Queens and got some surprise ex-Boybander/Transgendered woman (inspired by Justin Timberlake, I shit you not) and I saw it as destiny. Fate doesn't want me to be an ignorant cis and this will the year of LEARNING. My F-list if fabulous, so if you guys have read any novels or nonfiction about any of this or have watched amazing life-altering movies, pls help me.

* I told my bff I wanted to read Proust this year, because of reasons having to do with wanting to make ALL THE SHIT democratic, and she said, "Ew." And I was like, rme bitch, don't discourage me, and she was all like, "If Proust was alive these days he'd be a twitter addict. 'For a long time I used to go to bed early.' What the hell is that?" LOLIRL Nonetheless, I'm gonna strive to read Vol. I 'cause, damn it. Proust should be read by errybody, snobby dickheads be damned.

* Read the second book of the Vampire Academy series (Frostbite) and liked it plenty less than the first. I did snort at the killing-of-dude-for-womanpain, but meh. Read The Privilege of the Sword and enjoyed it more than I thought I would after not rly enjoying The Fall of Kings. I was super surprised that there was a rape scene in it, because the mood didn't seem to merit it (yeah, I know, that sounds weird; wtf is the mood for rape?) Like, okay, Riverside used to be a brutal place back in the day, but in this novel there was no resonance to any of the tragedies. It was like, weirdly lighthearted rape, murder and disability. o.O Plus, as always with Kushner's stuff, the threads feel a bit loose and frayed. I know, nit picker from nit picker hell. Idek. It's not like I necessarily consider this a flaw, but I just always feel like I'm going to meet people who are not going to matter further on and that there will be plots that will be left hanging in the air or resolve themselves abruptly. I once read the phrase "fanfic for invisible canon" and I think I could apply that to TPotS. Despite all this bitchin' I liked it. 3 star-eyes or whatever.

* WATCHED ALL THE REVENGE AND IT WAS GLORIOUS. you bitches probably never watched Telenovelas, but this is the Girlfriend Telenovela experience. i? am incredibly addicted and anybody who loves to see fierce bitches displaying their fierce bitchery like fiercely bitching bitches should watch it. :D

* On other news, I'm still on Season 2 of Lost. :D I regret nothing, no surplus of fucks given here.
