Oh, look!!! It’s an old meme that I made a long time ago and then forgot about it!!! I found it today while I was backing up some old files on my computer and decided it was time to post it. ~~~~Enjoy~~~~
You are best friends with Elizabeth. Like, super best friends. El sometimes teases that her ulterior motive for marrying Peter was so that she could call you her sister.
You’re a sports fan. Your dad took you to games and your brother was in the pro leagues. There was never any hope for you.
He is embarrassingly proud of you. When you had to enter a high school science fair for a grade, Peter brought his friends to your booth and boasted that you’re his sister. He and his friends were all in college.
Peter is overprotective. You have a date? Oh, that’s great! Better hope you wanted to know everything in his personal history, because there will be a background check.
You once managed to convince a boyfriend that your brother was in prison, just so that he wouldn’t try to meet Peter. When Peter came back from Europe after unsuccessfully tracking Neal and found out what you’d been doing, he didn’t talk to you for a week. (El thought it was hilarious.)
After this, you and Peter finally came to an agreement where you would let him meet your friends and dates as long as he didn’t run background checks or try to interrogate them.
The guest room in the Burkes’ townhouse might as well be your room, because you spend a lot of time with them.
You are their dog- and house-sitter whenever they go somewhere. Satchmo loves you because you sneak him treats he probably isn’t allowed to have.
You have a gun license because Peter taught you how to handle and shoot firearms. You rarely take your gun out of your safe, but you keep the license in case you ever have to use it for self-defense.
Whenever you have an excuse to hire an event planner, you go straight to Burke Premier Events. Not only do you get a discount, you also get very noticeable favoritism.
You visit the FBI offices to see Peter often enough that most of the agents in the white-collar unit greet you on a first-name basis. (Your favorite is Diana, but you let Peter believe it’s him.)
A large part of the reason Peter was annoyed that Neal moved from the hotel into June’s was because shifting his radius meant that your address was within his two miles.
Neal met you much the same way as he met Elizabeth – that is, he learned Peter had a sister and went behind his back to meet you out of pure curiosity. After your brother’s obsession with him, you recognized him from his photos immediately and opened your door wide with a greeting of, “Hey Neal! I was wondering how long it would take you to come by.”
Peter came to visit you one day and found you playing cards and laughing loudly with Neal. Turns out that Neal had neglected to inform him that the two of you were quick friends. Peter was less than pleased.
You were kidnapped in order to get to Peter. You dislocated your thumb to get out of your restraints and called for help. You were rescued within an hour, and Neal was both impressed by your pain tolerance and dismayed that you didn’t know how to pick a lock. (He decided that needed to be fixed.)
Fowler arrested you when he was trying to get Peter fired. Peter was promptly suspended for punching Fowler in the face when he shoved you.
Every time Peter makes you cry, he fumbles around awkwardly for a way to fix it. By the time he’s figured out something to make it up to you, you’ve found his awkward desperation so endearing that you’re not mad anymore.
Your first kiss with Neal was on Peter’s couch. To this day, you would both rather be kidnapped than admit this to him.
Because your kiss wasn’t planned, the next few weeks were a little weird as you tried to work out what it meant. Peter, of course, arrived at a wildly incorrect conclusion as to your strange behavior, and he gave Neal a very long lecture on how he was Absolutely Not Allowed to pressure you into breaking the law… all while you sat there with your head in your hands, wondering how the hell he ever became an investigator.
Once you’d decided that you wanted to make a serious try at dating each other, you both went to Peter at the same time to tell him. … He saw you holding hands and made a big deal out of it, so you understandably decided to wait… a month.
You’re so important to Neal that he asked Mozzie to try to make friends with you. Peter came to drop off a present from El and ended up finding you and Mozzie using props and blueprints from the internet to plan a hypothetical heist. He was not amused. There was yet another long lecture on how Mozzie was Absolutely Not Allowed to pressure you into breaking the law.
In the last few years, you’ve seen more and more of the inside works of the bureau. You’re interested in being more involved, but don’t think you want to make a commitment to changing careers. That’s why you seize on opportunities for paid consultation.
