[Artwork] Apocalypse THEN  
Title: Apocalypse THEN
Fandom: White Collar
Art characters/Pairings: Neal
Art rating: PG
Content Notice: safe
Dimensions/Resolution: 1250x1600px @300dpi

Summary: Pre-series. Young Neal had everything figured out until his 18th birthday came - then he learned the truth about his father and the life that he knew came to an end.

A/N: I decided not to tackle this prompt the way you would expect but have more metaphorical take on it instead :P After all, when Neal learned the truth about James, everything fell apart for the poor boy *pets him* And there was no Peter in his life back then to put the pieces back together again.

This fills the apocalypse square on my H/C Bingo card \o/

That is so gorgeous! I love his sweater (and his *socks*! Hee!!) and just how adorable he is... but he's also just so unbearably sad and heartbroken and devasated, and he needs allllll the cuddles. And I am soooo willing to be the one to give them to him!! LOL!! *smishes sweet li'l Neal* ;-)

LOL, yes, poor baby needs ALLLL the cuddles... back then he didn't have his Peter to do that, aww.

And now I'm craving fic where it's winter and of course Neal is recovering from cold/pneumonia/whatever, he's feeling rather miserable but he gets to wear Peter's oversized but insanely fluffy sweater and a pair of super warm socks that El's mom made... they make a nest of pillows and blankets in the living room, Peter leans against the sofa, Neal leans against Peter's chest and he's pretty sure that never before has he felt more warm and comfy and loved :P

The poor boy looks so heartbroken. Queuing up to hug him :D, with a cup of hot chocolate with marshmallows.

Poor Neal alone and in pain. An excellent interpretation showing anguish.

Thank you :D Yeah, I already did the literal end of the world last round, this time I'm so very happy I could do something different :P

Poor baby *hugs him*

This is gorgeous! Poor Neal, though it's just like him to drown his anguish in style.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 21st, 2016 08:19 pm (UTC)
Thank you ♥ Yes, so very true, he does it in style *pets him*

Thank you ♥ Yes, poor baby, all alone *hugs him*

Aww, baby!! *cuddles him* Everything will work out somehow, you'll see, Neal!

Great work, Olena, (yeah, I know, sounding like a broken record XD) BRAVA!!!
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 21st, 2016 08:28 pm (UTC)
Thank you, my friend :D ♥ Awwww, now you made me think of a beautiful scene in which Peter and Neal talk and somehow Neal ends up telling Peter about that day, about how terrible it all had been... but then, when Peter holds him, tries to soothe him, chase away those painful memories, then Neal tells him that in the end, he wouldn't change a thing because everything that had happened that day had steered him on a path that led him straight to Peter ♥

sigh ♥

That is wonderful and heartbreaking and all sort of ouch. Poor kid. *hugs him*
Love the casual clothes, especially the sweater and the socks. Great art.
kanarek13kanarek13 on July 22nd, 2016 08:17 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much ♥ Yeah, poor kid, so young and already with so much angst in his life, aww...
