Title: I've Pushed To Get Through
Rating: PG
Fandom: White Collar
Summary: Neal's gift is everything he wished for, back when he was seven years old and dirt poor. It's also the reason he's alone, why people turn on him, why people want to use him, and why people leave him.
Disclaimer: Not mine.
Content: Hurt/comfort, AU, superpowers, pre-series, character origins, friendship, gen.
Author's Note: I was rereading a bunch of White Collar fic the other week, and when I came across Five White Collar AUs Sam Didn't Write by [personal profile] copperbadge/[personal profile] sam_storyteller, I got grabbed so hard by the fourth one, The Comic Book Caper, that I had to expand on it. You don't have to read it to understand this, but you should. It's only a couple of hundred words, and it's the Peter angle, so you'll appreciate this better because of it.

Much thanks to [personal profile] tree00faery, [personal profile] tjs_whatnot and [personal profile] copperbadge for the lovely beta reads. You guys are awesome.

Spoilers for Season One (with specific references to 1.01 Pilot and 1.07 Free Fall) and 2.11 Forging Bonds, but goes AU thereafter for Neal's backstory. Yes, I wrote something that is already jossed, but hey, they have superpowers, so it's an AU anyway.

The references that might sound vaguely familiar are to The Pink Panther. I still don't know how Jeff Eastin & co got through an entire episode about a pink diamond, cat burglars and framing someone else for the crime without a single crack about The Pink Panther.
