Genre / Rating: gen AU; PG-13 for language and non-graphic references to violence.
Fandoms: Heroes, Leverage, and (slightly) White Collar.
Word count: 1,600 words.
Spoilers: for season 1 of Heroes and the pilot of White Collar; pre-canon for Leverage, so no spoilers.
Summary: Alec Hardison just can't work out how Nathan Petrelli won his 2006 Congress race. But he's got more important things on his mind right now, like getting the hell out of New York before FBI agent Peter Burke catches up with him...
Author's note: this is the 4th of 5 interconnected Leverage crossovers, all focusing on Hardison and his encounters with fellow geeks from various TV shows. It can be read independently, but it'll make more sense if you read the previous parts first:
Part 1 (Buffy crossover)
Part 2 (Veronica Mars crossover)
Part 3 (Doctor Who crossover)
Read part 4 at my journal.
