Kisses by Prettylittlepetal reviews
Public displays of affection never phased them. I don't really know what this is, except sheer procrastination. Don't expect much, this is as much stream of consciousness as coherent thought.

An AU for 3x15 Break in Diplomacy. A darker take on the episode. President Andrada is a different kind of crazy…more of a paranoid, psycho fascist than a rapey, psycho fascist. His paranoia turns dangerous for Elizabeth. One shot.

I am a bit haunted by the recent episodes Tamerlane and Face the Nation. This piece is a reflection on the events surrounding Elizabeth from a different point of view.
