[Artwork] Thanksgiving  
Title: Thanksgiving
Fandom: White Collar
Art characters/Pairings: young Neal
Rating: PG-13
Content Notice: sadness /o\
Dimensions/Resolution: 1800x1280 @72dpi
Stock used: cardboard box, painting, apple, coins

Summary: Pre-series. It was Neal's first Thanksgiving after he'd run away from home and he had nothing to be thankful for.

A/N: Initially I was going to use yet another awesome idea from dennih23 but the photo I wanted to base it on is kinda more suitable for another square I have. So I decided to do something different :D When I was "test-driving" the pic with sheenianni, we both agreed that it's a possibility that after running away from home Neal had it really bad, with the cold and hunger and lack of shelter slowly killing his determination to stay on the right side of the law and be everything his father was not *pets him*

This fills the hunger/starvation square on my H/C Bingo card AND the rainstorm square on my Gen Prompt Bingo card \o/

Poor homeless Neal. If he'll work for food I'm sure I can find some random tasks around here....

Hehe, yeah... though you would have to get in line because Sheeni and I have already called first dibbs on the whole care and feeding of pretty Neal :D

I can't imagine Neal ending up on the street for any length of time...

awwww poor Neal *hugs him*
Great work!
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 10:01 pm (UTC)
Thank you :D Another owie - another square :P

I agree w/phoenix_cry79: I can *definitely* find *plenty* to keep him safe and warm and fed ... and he wouldn't even have to do much "work"!! LOL!!!!

But geez, what a picture! I can *totally*, completely see that in my head. *huggles Neal tightly, always*
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 09:51 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you :D

Ah, the line of volunteers willing to take him in just keeps growing and growing :P I already told Sheeni that I'll be doing all the bathing :P
Sherylynsherylyn on September 12th, 2015 01:11 am (UTC)
LOL *snorfle* Good of you to claim that particular responsibility. That's okay, though... I'll make sure he's warm and comfy in bed every night. Or, you know, whenever he seems to need to be in bed ;-)
kanarek13: snuggleskanarek13 on September 12th, 2015 01:20 am (UTC)
Awww, you plan on letting him get out of bed :P
Sherylynsherylyn on September 12th, 2015 02:43 am (UTC)
Well, I figured it would help if you're planning to bathe him! LOL!!

I can see that too. Poor Neal alone and probably scared.
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 09:53 pm (UTC)
Yeah, poor guy *pets him*

Lovely artwork, poor Neal so lost and alone. *Hugs* him and offers him a seat at my dinner table :D
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 09:57 pm (UTC)
Awww, yeah...between all of us, he'd be clean, warm, fed and well-rested in no time ♥

AWWWwwww. *Hugs* I bet Neal saw New York as a dream place, until he encountered the darker face of the city... Or is this before he came to NY?

I think we should take him home and take care of him until he gets better. Purely for charitable reasons of course.
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 09:58 pm (UTC)
Yes, purely for charitable reasons... I'm still bathing him :P

Aww poor Neal, {{Hugs}} him. Love the desperation etched on Neal's face/
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 09:58 pm (UTC)
Thank you :D I'm quite happy with the pic I ended up using :D It's from Traveler :D

Oh poor Neal!! I can totally see this happening too - and your artwork is wonderful, even as it breaks my heart *pets Neal*
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 11th, 2015 10:01 pm (UTC)
Awww, thank you *hugs* Yes, poor Neal. But it seems we're all having a "help poor Neal" initiative here :P He'll be fine in no time :P
sandy79sandy79 on September 11th, 2015 11:49 pm (UTC)
Aww, Neal!! *hugs him tightly to transfer some body warmth* If he should still need a place to stay after making the rounds with all of you, count me in XD

Great artwork, sweetie, makes the desperation and hopelessness of the homeless people very palpable. BRAVA!!
kanarek13: snuggleskanarek13 on September 12th, 2015 12:34 am (UTC)
Thank you *hugs* This was more or less the idea I had right from the very beginning, just couldn't figure out how to put it together... *pets Neal*

Yeah, no worries, everyone we'll get a chance to pamper the boy :P
sapphire2309sapphire2309 on September 12th, 2015 03:12 pm (UTC)
Awwwwwww :( Poor Neal indeed. I love the rain, but it can't be pleasant without a warm place to return to.
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 13th, 2015 09:40 pm (UTC)
Aww, yeah, poor Neal... but we'll take care of him ♥

Thank you :D
pooh_collector on September 12th, 2015 07:48 pm (UTC)
OHHHHH! I just want to hug him tight and then feed him turkey.

Poor baby!
kanarek13kanarek13 on September 13th, 2015 09:42 pm (UTC)
Awww, yes, he'll appreciate it ♥
