Fic: The Purloined Conman (Leverage, PG13)

Title: The Purloined Conman
Rating: PG13
Fandom: Leverage
Summary: Everything is a con. The only variables are your leverage, your intentions, and the scope of it.


Nobody else in the team had thought they could pull it off. They knew what each of them were capable of, but even after working together so long, they hadn't grasped yet what they could do together.

Nathan had always known, though, and it hadn't surprised or unnerved him. They were conmen, and everything was a con.The only variables were your leverage, your intentions, and the scope of it.

Still, when sessions got particularly boring, Nathan wished he hadn't let Sophie talk him into stealing a Senate seat, even if congressional politics offered him a dozen daily chances to screw the corrupt and do some good. He hadn't thought about drinking in months, and there were days when the client mattered to him more than the final twist of the con.

He had the nagging suspicion his team had conned him good.

Yeah. They way they played with the Pentagon was both awesome and frightful. I'm waiting for The 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue Job.
