The team comes together when Victor Dubenich, a wealthy aerospace executive, persuades Ford to lead a team of talented criminals to steal aeronautical plans allegedly stolen from him by a competitor. After a successful heist, Dubenich withholds their payment and attempts to have them killed; whereupon they implicate him in a bribery attempt, which leads to his arrest by the FBI.

Thereafter they practice similar deceptions to avenge civilians who cannot use the legal system to redress their grievances. After a series of extremely intricate confidence tricks, the secret project is revealed and carried off, despite the recurrent Sterling. After meeting the client, the Leverage team researches the villains to find a weakness to exploit. Each con, either as originally planned or as complications develop, typically requires the specialized skills of all the members of the group.

Towards the end of each episode, the villains seem to get the upper hand, only to be outwitted by the Leverage team. More often, the flashbacks reveal new information the viewer has not been privy to. This formula is followed by every episode in seasons one, two, and three. While Ford was working for IYS, Blackpoole decided on a policy of denying payment for every medical treatment it once covered, especially those procedures deemed experimental.

At this low point, Nate was hired to lead a group of thieves to retrieve stolen documents.

In the Bleach pilot, Orihime who died from falling down the stairs considers confessing to Ichigo just before leaving for the Soul Society, but the spirit of her father advises against it, as it would only make Ichigo suffer. In the Distant Finale of Bokura no Hentai , Mai plans on confessing her feelings for Marika before she graduates, knowing they’re unrequited.

She instead tearfully congratulates Marika on graduating. At the end of “The Second Raid” Kaname has travelled all the way to Hong Kong to make a Love Confession to Sousuke after first beating him up for all the angst he’s put her through but chickens out at the last second. Except that it never seems to be played as anything final, Kaoru of Hayate the Combat Butler does this while he and Yukiji are visiting Italy during Golden Week.

He starts confessing, and then decides that he just can’t do it, so he changes the end of the sentance to be about her little sisters’ relationship status.

As we find out much much later, Obito never confessed because Rin loved Kakashi. In Sands of Destruction , Morte very nearly tells Kyrie that she loves him and just remembered that she’s loved him for millenia, but stops herself because she still thinks she’s unworthy of happiness and it’s too late anyway, as she’s dying of a sudden case of hole-through-the-chest.

Leverage follows a five-person team: Season 1 to 4 Consists of thirteen episodes, which writers John Rogers and Chris Downey and producer Dean Devlin intended to be a complete story should the series not be renewed. Nathan Ford is a former insurance investigator with an intricate knowledge of scams. He and his team act as modern-day Robin Hoods, staging elaborate cons for clients victimized by an individual or corporation with the wealth and influence to avoid reprisal within the legal system.

The team comes together when Victor Dubenich, a wealthy aerospace executive, persuades Ford to lead a team of talented criminals to steal back aeronautical plans allegedly stolen from him by a competitor. After a successful heist, Dubenich double-crosses them, withdrawing their payment and attempting to blow them up in an abandoned warehouse. In retaliation, the group decides to run a con on Victor, eventually exposing his corruption and implicating him in a bribery attempt, which leads to his being arrested by the FBI.

When the con is complete, rather than retire, they decide to keep working for the thrill each gets doing the work they are best at, and the added bonus of how effective they are as part of an elite team.

Many more people rcognize the station by the abbreviation or at least I think. Whole conclusions can’t be derived from one line. The whole premise of the show is mostly the same. You’re right; it is original research. But I’m sure some citable reviewer has made the connection by now.

This chapter is rated FR15 Chapter 3: Leverage Family Chapter 3: Okay, see, I had my plan for what Buffy would do to Sterling but was told by a close friend that it was too cruel. That it would make Buffy seem sorta sociopathic and put anyone who found out about what she did in a difficult place, ethically speaking. Originally, she was going to plant evidence that indicated he was a pedophile — at least where she was concerned.

The only charge Buffy would make verbally was that he was hanging around and making threats. It was the evidence she manufactured that was the problem to my friend. Thanks to my betas: I claim no rights to any copyrighted material. Please do not copy or take this story without my permission.


The smell of coffee beans and pastries filled the air.

The Avengers Marvel – Several configurations of poly ships are common. Legendary Defender – “Polydins” refers to shipping the paladins main characters in poly relationships Fanworks With Poly Themes Apple Candy and Imma Be Two vids made by the same vidder, talitha78 , explore poly themes in two very different ways. One is a plot focused piece that uses the song and the canon , and adds to it, to create a plausible poly story. The second is a character study, at once a celebration of the characters’ individuality, and also an examination of their team dynamic as revealed by the canon and flavoured by the song.

The almost vulgar line from the song, “I wanna go where he’s been,” leads the viewer to see Uhura as primarily someone that Kirk wants, even though he is seeing her in all her aspects–beautiful, full of humour, intelligent, talented–the list goes on and on. Gradually the story changes, and while still from Kirk’s POV, now he is seeing Uhura more the way Spock sees her, utilizing the canon relationship from the film to broaden Kirk’s view of Uhura into a more complete person.

The song gives us the line, “I want you and I want him,” at nearly the half-way point of the vid, and the view abruptly changes to Kirk’s focus on Spock. We see Spock the way Kirk does–as an adversary, a rival, a compatriot, a fellow adventurer, nearly, but not quite yet, friends.
