Peter Burke is, in more than one way, the "one-in-a-million" guy. First of all, he isn't like many other LEO's on TV - depressed, fed up with the job (and maybe the private life too). No, Peter Burke is, from the beginning, the exact counterpoint to all these clichés. He's happily married to the most wonderful Elizabeth, he enjoys his work, and he loves life in general. And when Neal joins him both in their line of work and in his private life on many occasions, Peter lets him in, because he believes that Neal can change, can become a better man, away from the criminal life. In the end, Neal calls him his "best friend", and while we are led to believe that it was just a phrase, I think that Neal really meant it in that moment. This batch was made for Round 77 of [community profile] tvcharacter20, the final round on LJ. Enjoy!

Some characters in TV shows are just too irresistible to ignore (and not to icon) - Dean Winchester is one of them, any of Chris Kane's another, and then there's this absolutely charming, drop dead gorgeous, yet a bit dangerous con man that we all know since October 2009: Neal George Caffrey.

Thanks to the screencapping talents of my dear friend [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13, we are blessed with gorgeous HD caps of every single episode - which translates to an icon maker like me as a wealth of material to work with. Thanks, hon, for providing so much gorgeousness!

This batch was made for Round 74 over at [livejournal.com profile] tvcharacter20 and as a birthday gift for our lovely bear [livejournal.com profile] pooh_collector. Hope you have an awesome b-day, hon, enjoy!

Caution - Heartthrob ahead!! )

Summary: Feeling a tad too lonely in Paris, Neal makes an impromptu trip to London for the holidays.

Notes: Written for Hurt/Comfort Advent 2016 over at [livejournal.com profile] whitecollarhc. Part of my “Allison Caffrey Chronicles”, prequel to the other stories, leading up to events that were mentioned in Chapter 3 of “Of Second Chances”. Oh, and the hotel mentioned can really be found in London. Unbetaed, so if you spot any grammar errors or typos, please let me know and I’ll fix them.

Christmas time in London... )

We all have them - favorites. Be it a favorite character, couple, scene, or anything else. And in all the years of watching TV, you might get a nice (and long) list of these favorites. I went over mine and pulled the best of the best for this batch, made for the current round over at [livejournal.com profile] tvcharacter20. Enjoy!

My personal best of TV... )

One of the main reasons for me to give "White Collar" the chance to be on my radar in the first place (and becoming an all-time No. 1 favorite) was the fact that it was set in New York. Sure, it's not the first and probably not the last show to do so, but unlike others, it was shot on location. So if Neal and Peter have a talk in front of the Brooklyn Bridge, you can bet that they were really standing there and not in front of a green screen (which happened on White Collar as well, but I don't think to the extent other shows did). This set was made for Round 8 over at [livejournal.com profile] 10in30, where it all was about scenery. Enjoy!

Everyone ready for another icon batch featuring our favorite man? Good, cause here are almost 60 icons of Matt, all of them in stunning black & white! (Is it just me, or is he even hotter when there's no color in the pic?) Anyway, this batch was made for the current round over at [livejournal.com profile] gents20in20. Enjoy!

The current round over at [livejournal.com profile] character_draw was indeed a special one. This time, we had to name 4 characters, played by the same actor. Naturally, I chose the following:

Actor: Matt Bomer

Characters:
Bryce Larkin (Chuck)
Neal Caffrey (White Collar)
Ken (Magic Mike/Magic Mike XXL)
Donovan (American Horror Story: Hotel)


Then we got a special set of themes - 5 directions - which had to be filled four times. While Neal and Bryce were easy to fill, with Donovan just a tad bit more difficult, Ken proved to be a real challenge, especially the first movie. Either the cap was in the right direction, but way too dark/too far away, or the cap had the perfect lighting, but the direction wasn't exactly what I had in mind. *le sigh* But in the end, I found the (hopefully) perfect icons for every direction. Enjoy!

Guess what? New videos have popped up (and I have added some golden ones from the past)! I swear, Matty's out to kill us in the most adorable ways! Enjoy!


the squee continues... )
I seem to be in a Neal/Sara mood recently ;) No big surprise, since these two are so wonderful together. Explaining in depth why I love them so much as a couple would "kill" this entry, so I just go and dedicate it to our lovely [livejournal.com profile] sheenianni (happy belated birthday, sweetie!) and hope you all enjoy the icons, made for the first round over at [livejournal.com profile] otp20in30!

Summary: Sara ponders her life, and the different kinds of games people can play.

Notes: Written for Round 3 of [livejournal.com profile] runthecon and the prompt "the games people play", given to me by the ever awesome [livejournal.com profile] kanarek13. Set in the gap year of the finale (and afterwards), but reflects back to events in earlier seasons and pre-series. Some events mentioned in there will be addressed in another story I’m writing at the moment (for [livejournal.com profile] wcpairings, so I can’t say too much about it).

Round 20 over at [livejournal.com profile] character_draw was a special round. We didn't have to claim a single character, instead we could choose them to our heart's desire. We only got one condition from the mods: all our icons had to capture characters - be it from a movie, a TV show, an anime,... I chose to do a 5 x 4, meaning 5 icons and 4 characters. Enjoy!

Ever since I began iconing, I had the goal of making a set of our favorite crime-fighting couple one day. Well, this day has arrived! Here are - no pun intended - 50 shades of Neal & Peter, made for Round 29 of [livejournal.com profile] couples20in20. Enjoy!

One of the most famous quotes from the show is "If you want a happy ending, that depends, of course, where you stop your story." Originated by the multi-talented Orson Welles, it has become kind of a metapher for Neal's story in the show. But did we all really get the happy ending? Well, I'll leave that to you to decide, at least from a writer's POV we have all roads open to our heart's desire ;) Anyway, this batch was made for Round 67 over at [livejournal.com profile] season20in20. Enjoy!

The final chapter... )

To be honest, Peter Burke had to grow on me. But he did it quite fast, captured my attention from the second viewing of the first season on. You ask why? Peter Burke is, compared to your regular FBI agent, the complete opposite of the cliché. Many LEO's (law enforcement officers) on the various TV shows are grumpy, have marriage problems (or suffer from a divorce), can't really work with their team mates, among other things. Peter Burke, on the other hand, loves his job, is a teamplayer all the way, has a steady marriage with an awesome woman. And on top of that, he forms a relationship to Neal that's oscilating between friends, brothers, father-son and everything else between. This batch was made for Round 80 at [livejournal.com profile] character20n20. Enjoy!

You know the saying of all good things must come to an end? Well, it seems that this is the case with [livejournal.com profile] free20in20 (at least for the time being). With this last set of icons, I want to thank [livejournal.com profile] hermionesparkle for all the fun and the wonderful themes she came up with for every round. *tacklehugs* And now, everybody enjoy this batch!

First things first: this round at [livejournal.com profile] females20in20 was dedicated to females that, let's say, annoy us. While some of the others chose actresses, I went with Kate Moreau. But the thing that annoys me about her is not so much the way Alexandra Daddario portrays her, no, it's the way the writers painted her. Maybe it's only me, but I can't shake the feeling that she was conning Neal, pretty much from the second they get introduced by Adler. Please enjoy this batch, even if you're a Kate fan.

If there's a sure way to expand your picture collections (no matter what theme), it's via social media. Be it Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram - you can find real gems out there. And since I go by the nickname "Huntress", this is perfect for me living up to that name XD Here's a first batch of my findings, with the promise of way more to come!

WARNING: IMAGE-HEAVY - AND DEFINITELY THUD-WORTHY!!!
