Summary: Tony has chance meetings with Neal five times over the years.

Tony sighed as he saw the same kid he'd seen three days in row hustling people for their money with his card tricks. The kid couldn't be much younger than he was, maybe just barely legal. He looked like he hadn't eaten anything for days.

It was times like this that Tony wished there was more he could do with his job. Instead, he was just a lowly beat cop with barely enough cash to get by on his own.

Walking over to the kid, he pulled out the fifty he kept for emergencies.

"Find something better, kid," he said.


"Hypothetically, what would be the response time be if someone tried to steal a painting?"

"You planning something?" Tony asked his new drinking buddy.

Neal just snorted. "Nah, my girlfriend has a thing for the Raphael that's on display. Figured I'd tell her that I had it on good authority it was impossible to take."

"You'd be right. That show is big news. From what I've heard around the precinct, there's even an FBI agent in town because of it."


"Yeah, an Agent Burke or something like that. Heard he's kind of a jerk."

"FBI can be like that."


Tony had never worked with a fed before, but he was beginning to see why the other detectives had pawned the guy off on him. Peter Burke had a one-track mind and it ran around Neal Caffrey.

"Look, Agent Burke," Tony said hint of frustration, "If Caffrey was here, we would have caught him. I was at that bank five minutes after it was reported."

"Who gave you that sucker you're twirling in your hand?"

Tony looked down at it. "Some guy walking up to the bank. Said he was-"

"Glad you were there to protect things," Burke finished.


Washington, D.C.

Something was off about the Navy officer that Tony was questioning. Apparently, he had been one of several who had had access to an Admiral's house over the past month. The same house from which a painting had been stolen, a forgery left in its place.

"So you've only served as a courier twice for the Admiral?"

"Yeah. Got in late from leave and this was my punishment. But it was worth it," the man added with a wink.

It was only later when the ID turned out to be fake that Tony realized the hair was way too long.

New York

"Have we met before?" Neal asked with twinkling blue eyes.

"A few times," Tony admitted grudgingly. "Let's not rehash it. The FBI says you're the best when it comes to these cases and we need the best."

"Hey Peter, does my contract say I have to play with military guys?"

"Your contract says you do whatever I tell you to do. I figured you gave him a sucker that one time, so you owe him like you owed me."

"I need to learn not to give candy to federal agents," Neal stage whispered to Tony. "So what does NCIS need?"

HEEEEEE! Love it!
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:36 am (UTC)
Yay! I couldn't settle on just one. :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 08:02 am (UTC)
These are great! :)
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:36 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)

This is now my new head canon! :D

And that last line? Perfect!!!
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:36 am (UTC)
Hee! Tony and Neal... BFFs :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 12:26 pm (UTC)
Sweet! Two of my very favorite characters.
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:37 am (UTC)
Tony has been for awhile and Neal is joining the 'fav character' ranks fast. :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 01:16 pm (UTC)
Love this!
The voices are spot on, and the situations note perfect.

Next up...Neal's takes on the rest of the team. Right? Please?.....
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:38 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm pondering other NCIS/White Collar crossovers as we speak. :)

Neal is very, very lucky that he's dealing with *Tony*. I don't imagine it would be pretty if he had to deal with Gibbs. Neal would insult Gibbs's hair and/or suit, Gibbs would headslap Neal, Peter would get offended and tell Gibbs not to assault his CI, Gibbs would say he wouldn't have to smack him if Peter had him better trained, poor Fornell would be regretting ever suggesting this in the first place... ;-)

Okay, now I kinda want this... and I don't even watch NCIS.

aww these are adorable. i love them all but i think i like the first one best - poignant.
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:41 am (UTC)
Thanks! The first is secretly my favorite.
Jan. 13th, 2013 03:29 pm (UTC)
Love it when the sucker makes a re-appearance! It needs its own 5X story.
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:41 am (UTC)
The sucker was awesome :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 03:48 pm (UTC)
Lovely. Now I feel like I should get into NCIS just to get more Tony. Tanks for Sharing :)
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:42 am (UTC)
Thanks! Early NCIS I can highly recommend. It's later and current NCIS that I'm not too happy with because of some character issues... but Tony and Gibbs are awesome.
Jan. 13th, 2013 05:13 pm (UTC)
Great stories, I wish Tony and Neal would meet, I'll bet Gibbs and Peter would have stories to exchange-LOL
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:43 am (UTC)
Gibbs and Peter would be run ragged with those two joining forces. :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 05:37 pm (UTC)
Yup! Tony is perfect for a sucker story!! XD
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:43 am (UTC)
He is! :)
Jan. 13th, 2013 06:08 pm (UTC)
*G* Wonderful...
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:44 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)
Jan. 14th, 2013 02:09 am (UTC)
Love it :)
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:44 am (UTC)
Thanks! :)
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:08 am (UTC)
A world of yay! I unabashedly hope there will some day be more interaction between these two. So much fun to be had!

Plus now I want to see Gibbs and Burke interact. :) Wonderful job with this!
Jan. 14th, 2013 03:45 am (UTC)
There is a lot to do with Neal and Tony and I'm plotting that out in my head. :)

And Gibbs and Peter could definitely trade some stories. :)
