Summary: Summary: They are the leaders, after all. Everything is their responsibility, their fault, their crime. It’s natural that they should turn to each other. John&Elizabeth friendship.

This isn’t meant to be shippy (but feel free if you’re so inclined). It’s mostly a reflection on the fact that although some seriously ghastly stuff happens on the show, everyone seems to get over it and go on with life. This story is unbetaed, so I hope it makes sense.
