White Collar - Congratulations on Your F
There is youtube!video of the White Collar stars dancing to Tik-Tok (every single current fandom seems to have at least one Tik-Tok association), but I took a look at the first five seconds, hit pause and never came back, so in my head this is what I shall imagine:

but this party don't stop, no.




Friday/Saturday
Had dinner with parents before they flew off Down Under, then met theprerogative, tokei, and gomimushi at a casino. :D And the Helix Bridge. Then met up with friend and went to friend's place and watched White Collar til 4.30am in the morninggg. We woke up and ordered MacDonalds' breakfast and then there was Even More White Collar. :D :D :D Went for Korean barbecue dinner with colleagues and ex-colleagues and there was INCEPTION DISCUSSION AND THIS HAPPENED:

ex-colleague: "There was such a cute guy in Inception."
me: "Who was it? :D"
ex-colleague: "NOT Leonardo Dicaprio."
me: "I KNOW! IT'S ARTHUR! :D"
ex-colleague: *BEAMS* "YES! IT'S ARTHUR! HE IS SO CUTE!"
me: "I THINK HE IS CUTE TOO!"
ex-colleague: "YAY LET'S HIGH-FIVE!"
us: *DO SO*

So Joseph Gordon-Levitt is awesome and he & Inception will get MORE AIRTIME.

Then we went for Japanese dessert and I came back home and started working on fic.

THINGS I DID TODAYYYYYY (SUNDAY)

Today I went to bed at 6 A.M. because I was finishing up IB fic. This was entirely my fault, by the way, for not having better time-management skills. I woke up at 11+am and then proceeded to work on the fic until I finished at 2pm, by which time I was one-and-a-half-hours late for lunch with theprerogative, tokei, baseballidiot and argentum_luna (I HAVE ADDED YOU ON TWITTER). I chose the same place they had had lunch in (without even knowing it). XD And then there was Reborn doujin and Taiwan!Rebocon discussion and Inception discussion and Joseph Gordon-Levitt discussion and it was awesome. And I pretty much had CANDY for breakfast and lunch at 3pm. \O/

Then it was off to amarukei's place to meet up with amarukei and fouenpassant and was introduced to a new series called Legend of the Sun Knight. Here is an introductory post from the dA fanclub, but I personally find that this blog entry tells you much more. I ship the main character with EVERYBODY. Also please have a link to the Sun Knight / DRR AMV introduced by amarukei. The series is in Chinese but there are translations of the early chapters.



WARNING FOR AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF WHITE COLLAR
MAJOR (5) GIF PARTY


White Collar in 5 .GIFs

IN THE BEGINNING:

so you work with this guy


and he begins to work his way into your life


and sometimes you are like D: WHAT IS THIS


but you know what really matters


and it's that you make a really good team when you're working together.

Neal you get a ☆.

:)

☆☆☆ First past the post: White Collar gag reel: this selection is all of Neal's moments. :D (My favourite one is the line at 2:30. Elaborated below.)

recs, interviews, galleries, fansites, assorted media, you name it.


MAJOR WHITE COLLAR LINK DUMP I AM NOT KIDDING GUYS. I have so many tabs open I don't even. AUGH.

media
☆☆☆ 1. A+++: White Collar gag reel: this selection is all of Neal's moments. :D My favourite one is the line at 2:30. Neal: "Peter, I have access to every - f*$k! Ooh- sorry-" *looks guilty* "If there are children out there still watching, I'm sorry."

articles / interviews
♡♡♡ 2. YOU KNOW WHO COMES UP WITH THE BEST (i.e. the slashiest) lines in interviews? TIM DEKAY, THAT'S WHO (the actor who plays FBI Agent Peter Burke). Check out THIS ONE:

"To me, these two like each other. They've admitted they are friends and they care about each other more than just professionally," says Tim. "But I think if both of them completely trust each other, like a love story where two people haven't gotten together in a romantic comedy series, if they completely trust each other than those two will have gotten in bed and we don't quite want that yet. We want to hold that as long as we can."

♡ 3. And this one (you can watch this live/with audio here on youtube):

The relationship varies: "It's father-son sometimes, it's sibling, sometimes we're like an old married couple together," says DeKay, 46, who has appeared in HBO's Carnivale and Tell Me You Love Meand was Jerry's opposite in the "Bizarro Jerry" episode of Seinfeld.

...

The irony is, "the person who ultimately took away what I did for a living is the person I trust more than anyone else," Bomer says.

4. Interview with the White Collar leads

♡♡♡ 5. White Collar Screencap Gallery

6. The F**Kyeahwhitecollar and F**Kyeahmrmattbomer Tumblr sites. I like woodcomb's White Collar tag on Tumblr, too.

fanfiction recommendations

Gen
☆ 1. Trust Games: Trust games at a FBI retreat, an outsider's perspective on the White Collar unit. HILARIOUS.

☆☆☆ 2. You Ruined Everything (In the Nicest Way): AU in which Neal and Peter have an unconventional relationship. AMAZINGGGG. Official summary: A story of missed connections, in which Peter doesn't know what to say, Neal doesn't seem to want to hear it, and Elizabethan translation proves vital. There is also a video for this. (For me, this story gets even better on reread)

and the rest of it
It is all Neal/Peter, okay. sometimes it is neal/peter/elizabeth.
(Also why do people call it Neal/Peter when sometimes the story is CLEARLY Peter/Neal.)

☆☆☆ IT HAS NO NUMBER BECAUSE IT IS AWESOME: Paws! - in which Neal turns into a KITTEN.

☆☆☆ 1. Deastar's White Collar - Five Classic Slash Clichés series. My favourites are Blind/Dates and some PRICELESS (hilarious, and best of all, TRUE) lines in which Neal describes his relatioship with Peter in Just Like in the Movies.

☆ 2. Taking Liberties, by astolat. Remember the mid-Season 1 episode when Peter was played up to be the puppetmaster? Well, this fic runs with that. I love that this one shows Peter can be, and sometimes is, one step ahead of Neal.

☆ for the Con Manual. 3. Don't judge that it's a kink meme fill: this is a fascinating one where Peter asks Neal to write a manual to help the FBI understand how cons operate and conmen think, and Neal does so. Fascinating. (The only thing I don't like is the last line.)

4. gyzym's White Collar fic: I personally liked Resistance and Futility: A Study (Or: Seven Times Peter Burke Caught Neal Caffrey): Everyone thinks Peter Burke has only caught Neal Caffrey twice. Everyone is wrong.

For my own reference: recsforalloccasions's White Collar recs.
whitecollar_tv

the incredible guilty pleasure-type things

♡♫ ♡♫ be all my sins remembered, a Shakespearean AU. Summary:
Peter never thought he'd see Neal Caffrey again after his fall from grace and departure from the stage. But when The Globe needs a new lead actress, Neal may be his only choice.
(They put on a production of Hamlet. I AM A SUCKER FOR HAMLET, OKAY)

matthew_bomer. Endless pretty, pretty much.



to-go set of assorted links
☆ 1. Massive Inception picture gallery.
♡♡♡ 2. I SCREAMED with laughter at this: official!Tessa convention art of fat!Conrad (the story was what made me scream with laughter: oh Tessa, how can your only question be How fat?, that is adorable), and beat!up Worth's "The things I do for you, Hanna" (this is AWWWWWW-ESOME).
3. Selkie story came THIS close to having a crazy Cousin Neil who was very fond of being tagged (see that second-to-last picture of all those SEALS at the beach looking so contented, this is pretty much why I linked it). Also those tags are SO UGLYYYY.
☆ because it EXISTS: 4. Saito/Cobb fic on Archive of Our Own (Inception).
♡♡♡ 5. So a while back, there was a "Take A Sad Song and Make It Better" fest - rewriting canon for extra!happiness, basically, and there was a lovely Bryce/Chuck working together AU. I ship Everybody/Chuck so this was especially awesome (I always wanted for Bryce to be able to make things right between him and Chuck, and I was never quite happy with how they handled the conclusion of Bryce's storyline, but one takes what one can get). (p.s. Bryce was played by the same actor who plays Neal on White Collar)
