Notes: This is unbeta’d. This fic is nominally set in my June 17th universe but it isn’t even remotely necessary to have read that in order to understand this. This fic was written for the “5 minute fic” challenge on the Jed and Leo list although it actually took closer to half an hour. Many thanks to: dot for inspiration and chat about the Posse Commitatus episode. I found the tough choices Jed and Leo faced towards the end of Season 3 very intriguing.
