So, we want to get everyone all excited about White Collar Big Bang and we also wanted to give you guys a place to vent when Neal misbehaves or Peter doesn't cooperate with you. :D

Feel free to introduce yourselves and share your ideas of what you're going to write. :D

Current Mood: amused

Hi! I'm B. Super excited for BB!

I'm actually thinking of trying to write 10,000 words about Moz. Starting before he met Neal, through their relationship, detailing the years Neal was in prison, and then their new situation. Probably gen (or at least not Moz/Neal). But who knows! After the season finale, I may totally change my mind.

Anyone else have plot thoughts yet?

I have several ideas - most of them are AUs that would need some world-building hence Big Bang.

Oh, that sounds really interesting! I would love some Moz backstory :D - but there's still plenty of time to see what you come up with :).

Hey, this is quite a few months later and you may have completely changed your ideas several times by now, but I just wanted to let you know that your Moz idea sounds great! I'm in love with Mozzie, and I'd love to read anything involving him at all. No worries if you did change what you were writing though--I'm sure that if you could come up with an idea like that, then you could come up with a bunch of even better ones. ;)

Hurt/comfort for me :D. Depending on what happens to Kate in the finale, I might have a bit of a bunny about Neal coming to terms with the fact that their relationship is over. While convalescing from some physical hurt.

Lol - there are so many ways to do that, I'm sure you've come up with completely different stuff from me :D. And I'm thinking of doing that before BB and coming up with something different later, though I'm not sure about that.

Oh, man - are you still thinking of doing this? It sounds like a great idea! Or have you come up with something new?

Tim's eye color?
Can someone tell me what color Tim Dekay's eyes are? I've been searching in vain for the info on the web. Thanks!

Re: Tim's eye color?
Thanks! Nice pic! It's hard to tell if they're brown or hazel and I didn't want to assume.

Hi! I'm QueenViolet, also known as Vi or Violetta. As an insomniac that thrives when writing Harry Potter drabbles, this is going to be hugely outside of my comfort zone.

But I'm a weirdo, so I'm going to try writing in a largely unfamiliar fandom anyways, and write a crazy amount of words while I'm at it! XD

Just joined both comms,and will sign up tomorrow. I got smacked with a xover bunny that won't shut up. Very please I can write it as a WCBB cause the other fandom, Fastlane is kinda ded, but now in might have a small audience - is excited ;)

[identity profile] hoosierbitch.livejournal.com on April 1st, 2010 07:39 pm (UTC)
I AM SO EXCITED FOR YOUR FIC. I loved Fastlane, like, an unhealthy amount. It was one of my favorite guilty pleasures. You may have a small audience, but it will be a dedicated, eager, and grateful audience! Go you! Rah rah rah!

YAY!! I just officially signed up and even started writing it ;) Yes Fastlane *pets* sadly not much is out there, but if you're interested there were a couple of fics and even a vid that was posted last year over on [livejournal.com profile] fastlane_fic. I've been a bad Mod, but you're right there still is some ♥ for Fastlane and mixing White Collar, I think will be a perfect match ;)

Hello, all! I'm lovefanfiction, you may (or may not) have seen me around. I'll be writing a Kate/Neal fic where he falls in love and she- doesn't.
And I'm so excited to pound out 10,000 words- I'm already 1,000 in, plus a rather thorough extensive outline-like thing.

Argggh, ok, so I ditched all my original ideas because I couldn't quite get to the 10k mark and the plots made no sense (I was derailed by three RL things that delayed my writing).

The new idea I have is cracky and fun and people I've sent snippets to like it, but now the story is evil, has taken over my life and is not wanting to end.

This should be good because I will be over my 10k words tonight, but it still needs work.

-flails and panics- I don't think I'm going to be done! -cries-

*hugs* Don't worry - you have ten days to finish up. Plus, you're just sending in a rough draft. If you just want to stick on an ending that makes no sense, we won't hold it against you. It'll be an ending, even though you're going to edit it.

Cracky and fun are the best combinations, at least when you're writing. Good luck in the home stretch!

[identity profile] katikat.livejournal.com on July 6th, 2010 11:07 am (UTC)
I'm curious about the rough drafts: Do we have to post them anywhere? If so where? Here? How? Locked/un-locked? With all the warnings etc.? Maybe a template would be good for that?

I've never written any Big Bang fics, that's why all the questions. Thanks for any info!

Sadly I just officially dropped- seems I'd been kidding myself that I could tie everything it up under 15k, and I'm no where near 15k. So for now it'll have to go on the back burner as I'm now officially working on finishing another deadline draft in a different fandom.

Anyhoo, since I'll be taking a step back for those still participating if you need/want a cheerleader??

I'll be honest I'm not exactly sure how much free time I'm gonna have, so (depending on length, pairing/genre) I might be able to be a reader/cheerleader for 1-2 people still participating.

Just lmk :)

my story idea (and I just joined!)
I'm a contributor at FFnet but someone told me about this site. I figured I could try it. I wrote 180k words last month for one story. I've been known to throw out a 20k story in a couple of days if the mood hits me. I have a penchant for making up stories just cuz. ;)

I didn't have an idea 5 minutes ago when I started this thing but now I do but I'm not sure I want to share yet. I will say this: It will be kind of an oddball sci-fi gen with a spin on an old Disney movie I won't mention yet.

So where do I post / mail the rough draft to next week? This will be my first one of these and I've done NaNoWriMo so I'm up for the challenge.

It is zombie like? Um, it never really was that active. I'll have to check the settings, but I think that you can post in this comm if you want. :D

Yep, I'm hoping on writing a sequel to last year's story, but I'll have to see if it cooperates with me. :D It will include El and Neal working together to rescue Peter.

That sounds like fun!

I haven't read your story from last year. What was it called?

I've finished my story, and it's with my second beta. I had to finish early because I'm doing a summer course and I was worried if I didn't finish early I wouldn't finish at all...

And btw, do you know a good site where I can get some WC icons? I only have Stargate ones and I need to update.

Last year's fic, The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons, 16th October, 1834 (http://whitecollar-bb.livejournal.com/16808.html), was a kidfic about Neal and Peter catching an art thief.

I've yet to start my sequel, because I'm already finishing off three big bangs elsewhere. But, I'll write it in June with plenty of time.

I actually made 2 of my WC icons, and my friend made my 3rd one, but I had this icon site favorited that has a lot of good icons: Zoicite Icons (http://zoicite-icons.livejournal.com/) Other than that, I'd suggest searching for WC icons. :D

I am very much going to read your fic! Probably this weekend.

Thanks for the icon site. I did Google, but I didn't like what came up, however, being entirely optimistic, I did try again, and now I have some nice ones.

Take care,
