Title: Know Thine Enemy
Fandom: White Collar
Characters: Neal Caffrey, Peter Burke (vague, barely-there attraction)
Summary: After his first run-in with Peter, Neal can't leave well enough alone, and runs into him again. (Part of the "Forging Bonds" flashback section.)
Author's Note: I just rediscovered this on my hard drive, and I kind of love it. I wrote it literally minutes after watching "Forging Bonds" for the first time. It was initially going to be less work safe, but that never works when I try it, so then it was going to be a complicated longfic, but it ended up just being this, and I am okay with that. I wanted it to go up somewhere, so here it is. I hope you enjoy it! I have no idea if this works with the actual canon of the show, timing- or anything-wise, so please forgive me if it breaks the show somehow.
