[fic: white collar] you've been taken by the wind  
(Sorry, I've had to turn anon comments off again, I just can't keep up with the absolute flood of spam I'm getting :( They're still enabled on the mirrored dreamwidth posts.)

Title: you've been taken by the wind
Characters/Pairing: Neal, June, Peter, Mozzie; Gen
Rating: T
Word count: 2100
Content Notes: Character death, progressive memory loss, assisted suicide
Other Notes: This is a somewhat loose interpretation of the "de-age" square on my hc_bingo card. I floated the idea of doing a sort of Flowers for Algenon thing, and sholio and florastuart were unwise enough to encourage me.

Summary: He used to be able to look at a problem and see connections everywhere, golden glittering wires connecting everything, and now they're gone.

Guhh, that was lovely (does that sound awful?). Neal's ability to process and make connections is one of the most important things for him, and it's absolutely heartbreaking to see him losing that and slipping away from the people he loves.
:( :( :(

Wow, this is absolutely beautiful, and sad. My heart aches so much for Neal and everyone right now. I need to go find some fluffy h/c fics to read!

But really, wonderful job. Thank you gor sharing!

Oh, this is sad but beautiful. And I love what a creative take it is on the de-age square.

oh my god why. if you wanted to break my heart, you could have done me the courtesy of being heavy-handed or out of character. this is just unfair.
