“Imagine Neal telling you to meet him in Paris” as requested by Anonymous.

Upon hearing your favourite phone ringtone, you immediately dug in your pocket and extracted your precious smartphone, immadiately at the caller ID. Strangely enough, it was a masked call. Frowning, you slid the screen and answered in a rather clipped tone.
“Hello? Who’s this?”
“Hey (Y/N), damn I missed your voice.”
You gasped when you recognize the man the voice belonged to.
“Neal?” your question was all but a whisper as if you were afraid that speaking too loud would make him disappear. “Is that you?”
“Yes, sweetheart. It’s me.”
You bareky contained your tears of joy.
“Oh my god, Peter was right, you are alive!”
You heard a chuckle at the other end of the line.
“I knew he would. I was hoping he would pass the message to you.”
You nodded, happy, but realizing he couldn’t see you, you added:
“Yeah, he did.”
You could imagine his soft smile as he was talking to you, talling you how it had all happened, how he left you unwillingly, always hoping that you would take the hint that he was alive but had no other choice but to fake his death to finally be free. Free to be with you.
“(Y/N).” He said, his tone suddenly solemn. “Would you join me in Paris?”
You were at loss of word for a moment, and he called your name again, worried that the communication had cut.
“Yeah, I would love to, Neal! I can’t wait to see you!”
“How about meeting where we dreamt to go if I was ever free?”
You smiled and acquisced, thrilled to see that he did not forgot his promise to take you to the Louvre.

I’m not sure why Tumblr isn’t all over White Collar. Seriously, it’s an incredible show with wit, great humor, clever plots, and AMAZING character development. Not to mention:

  • Gay actor Matt Bomer is the lead
  • Neal Caffrey: super suave con-man art-thief with a heart of gold and an intense love of all things artistic (he’s an adorable puppy dog cinnamon roll)
  • Diana Barrigan: daughter of a diplomat and a badass lesbian woman of color who isn’t sexualized 
  • Clinton Jones: A black Harvard-educated Navy man turned FBI agent who is cool as hell
  • June: super awesome black woman who is so sweet but also crafty and on occasion helps the guys with cons 
  • Mozzie: conspiracy theorist comic relief with a penchant for philosophic quotes and completely random eccentricities - who has a REALLY SAD BACKSTORY WHY?! 
  • Peter and El: They have the BEST marriage ever. Both are supportive, encouraging, and SO TRUSTING. Seriously, Peter constantly gets thrown into compromising positions where he has to flirt with other women, and each time they set it up like El think he’s having an affair but she just laughs at him because he sucks at flirting - Sorry I just really love the Burkes
  • Satchmo the dog saves the day more than once 

It’s funny, light-hearted, with great writing and acting, and touches on deep themes with grace. This show is INCREDIBLE and went out with a hell of a bang. It’s all on Netflix and you should totally go watch it right now.
