Title: The Hired Man
Rating: PG-13
Summary: Peter Burke, ex-FBI agent, met Neal Caffrey, thief, during a bar fight. Peter was in need of a job, and Neal was in need of a bodyguard. Everything was going fine until this art-restorer named Elizabeth hired them to steal a statue...
Notes: Do I need to actually say this is an AU? This is an AU. It's based off a short AU I wrote in a post ironically titled 5 AUs Sam Didn't Write.

Notes: This story basically follows S1 with a twist.

It's probably best to think of this as an extremely mild AU.

Upon request, here is a master post for Exquisite, my epic follow-the-leader with White Collar.

Exquisite is a mild AU in which Neal has formed a sexual relationship (involving some bondage and submission) with both Peter and Elizabeth, and the story studies how their canon interactions might affect this relationship. It also introduces several original or semi-original characters including Clive the young forger, Sergeant Calhoun of the NYPD, and Captain Mike Shattuck ("Captain Shattuck" is a canonical offscreen character) who dated Peter before Peter met Elizabeth.

Rating: NC-17; language and sexuality
Warnings: Listed by chapter; so far nothing major, as far as I can tell. Some brief discussion of child abuse, some violence.

You can find all chapters in sequence at the Exquisite tag.

Notes: I have done a reasonable amount of research on Federal Level Five ("supermax") correctional facilities, which canonically is where Neal was placed when he went to prison. The supermax we see in the show, however, correlates to Level Three ("close security") facilities, so I've used Level Three guidelines -- with some small creative license -- in writing this.

On Storytelling:

Fanfiction is a way of the culture repairing the damage done in a system where contemporary myths are owned by corporations instead of owned by folk.
-- Henry Jenkins

Life is very short. We die on the march. But there is nothing outside the march so nothing can be lost to it. The missing plays of Sophocles will turn up piece by piece, or be written again in another language.
-- Tom Stoppard

Life does not cease to be funny when people die any more than it ceases to be serious when people laugh.
-- G. Bernard Shaw

A good story should provoke discussion, debate, argument...and the occasional bar fight.
-- J. Michael Strazynski

Here's how to become a great artist. First, get miserable. Misery drives you to become a great artist, but the art does nothing for your misery, which drives you to drugs, which makes you a lousy artist.
-- House M.D.

Humans? They're long gone. Vanished. Extinct. They only exist in stories.
-- Ferngully

Anton Chekov, who was a doctor, said, "Medicine is my wife; writing is my mistress."

Se non e vero, e ben trovato. (Even if it’s not true, it’s a good story.)
-- Italian Proverb

The recipe for becoming a good novelist is easy to give, but to carry it out presupposes qualities one is accustomed to overlook. One has only to make a hundred or so sketches for novels, none longer than two pages but of such distinctness that every word in them is necessary. One should write down anecdotes every day until one has learnt how to give them the most pregnant and effective form; one should be tireless in collecting and describing human types and characters; one should above all relate things to others and listen to others relate, keeping one's eyes and ears open for the effect produced on those present, one should travel like a landscape painter or costume designer. One should, finally, reflect on the motives of human actions, disdain no signpost for instruction about them and be a collector of these things by day and night. One should continue in this many-sided exercise for some ten years; what is then created in the workshop will be fit to go out into the world.
-- Nietzsche

The thief. Once committed beyond a certain point he should not worry himself too much. Thieving is God's message to him. Let him try and be a good thief.
