Diana put the folders in her hand on Peter's desk with a mournful expression.

"This whole situation? It's turned into such a big mess."

"Tell me about it," Peter said, equally sober as he accepted the files. His face brightened though as he spotted someone walking up the stairs to his office. "But it looks like the cavalry just arrived!"

He rose and walked around his desk to greet the red-haired man who walked through his open doorway.

"Billy! How the heck are you? It's been ages!" Peter shook his hand vigorously and Billy returned the enthusiasm.

"Still dodging bullets out in the field, but look at you all sitting pretty in White Collar crimes!"

"Trust me, I still have my share of dodging bullets." He gestured to Diana who had stood up as well. "Agent Diana Barrigan, this is Agent Billy Cooper: best damn fugitive recovery agent in the Bureau."

Diana shook his hand warily. "FR? Are we admitting that Neal's a fugitive and not just missing?"

"We're admitting we need help finding him and since Billy's our ace tracker..."

"Urban tracker," Billy corrected. "You don't want to piss off Ian Edgerton by going after his title of best wilderness tracker. Or best sniper in the Bureau for that matter."

"Oh, no you don't!" Peter echoed, putting up his hands in defense.

"So this case you called me in on..."

Peter gestured him into a guest seat as he and Diana took their chairs again.

"Yes, those are the files right there."

Billy picked up the files: one for Neal Caffrey and one for Matthew Keller.

"Two fugitives? You want me to find Caffrey and Keller?"

"No." Peter leaned forward in his chair. "You just need to find Caffrey. Wherever he is? Keller will only be one step behind."

A new crossover drabble series out of nowhere! (And nowhere is about where I know it's going at this point - it's that unplanned!)

I had intended on just doing two drabbles for this weekend - N100 and WC100 - and making them a two part crossover with Neal and Billy. Only I showed drafts to the slashchat ladies and they threatened encouraged me to keep going so now I have to write more! /headdesk/

So fair warning: no clue how long this series will go (I do have 3 written ATM) and what prompts it might use on either comm, but when you've got Neal and Billy? Where's the bad?

I think I will love you forever and ever. I was really hoping you'd cross over not just the shows but the coms one day and you went and made me happy. :-)

It makes me happy to make you happy. ♥

(I figure this makes for a nice 1 year anniversary comm present, right?) :-)

Hee! Apparently based on the reception it got in Slashchat!

I'm glad to see you agree.

/hugs you/

I'm sorry I missed the chat. umbralillium mentioned you were asking for crossover ideas and I thought of Covert Affairs/The Mummy. Oded's character in the first is descended from his character in the second.

Ooh! /ponders/ /enjoys the visuals/


And hope to see you at chat again soon!

Heehee! Glad to help! I'll try to make it again. I keep getting distracted by shinies.

I read these in the wrong order but I like that Peter is aware that Keller will probably be chasing Neal. Hopefully Billy will find Neal before any more harm comes to him.

Oh, that's such a cool idea for an AU! =)

Thank you!

Oh, what is this thing of beauty?!

I am delighted and off to read the next drabble in this series.
