Caffrey-Burke Day: October 23
I recently took part in something in the Star Trek fandom called “Kirk/Spock Day” which is apparently an annual event commemorating the first airing of that slashiest of TOS eps, “Amok Time.”
Realizing that the anniversary of the airing of the White Collar pilot was coming up (why DO I have that knowledge in my head?), and given that we’re in the midst of the midseason break, I thought I’d give it a go starting one of these things for White Collar.
Let’s start with what this ISN’T: It’s not a swap or challenge, there are no sign-ups, there are no rules. This is not Slash-only. It is not Gen-only.
What it IS is a celebration of the relationship we love so very much – the one that makes watching White Collar such a joy – whether you choose to interpret it as friendship, father/son, or luuuuurve.
How can you participate? It’s simple:
On October 23, publish a White Collar fanwork that focuses on or otherwise features the relationship between Peter and Neal. Any fanwork. Any subject matter. Any genre.
Then, when you cross-post or otherwise promote your work on any of the communities or archives in the fandom, be sure to include in the summary or author note that it is for “Caffrey-Burke Day”.
1. Create Neal-Peter works, any medium, any length, any subject matter
2. Publish October 23
3. Mention it’s for “Caffrey-Burke Day”
If anyone cares to signal-boost for this, please do! If you TWEET it, use the hashtag #CaffreyBurkeDay
And many thanks to my buddy, the v. talented Kanarek13, for the banner!
