Disclaimer: Don't own them; don't wish to. I just like playing with their minds.
Warnings (It's pretty dark) (hightlight to read): References to suicide, offscreen noncon, abuse, violence, and murder.
Summary: Written for this prompt on the White Collar kinkmeme (highlight to read): I just want one fic where Neal makes someone his prison!wife. He doesn't do it because he wants to get off or anything, but because he feels sorry for the other party.
As I’ve read elsewhere and seen on the show, Neal’s conditions in the series don’t match Supermax (Level 5 security) prisons, but Close Security or Level 3 prisons. This is what I’ve used, as it’s much easier to prod the plot forward when the prisoners actually interact, and aren’t stuck in a sound-proof, featureless boxes for 23 hours a day.
This story ballooned on me. Starting with a 1700 word story/synopsis I wrote in 3 hours; I decided my descriptive paragraphs just weren’t telling the story the way I’d like. It's a lot more actiony, now.
