Summary: With those last words, McKay had actually almost sounded like a voice of experience, like someone who knew what he was doing, which pretty much clashed with the version of Rodney McKay that Lorne had in his head. [Lorne fic. Condemned tag. Contains spoilers for Runner also.]
I have mixed feelings about this story. On the one hand, it was great and engaging and interesting. But then on the other I'm left feeling bad for John 2.0 and for everyone in the city. I mean, he's left to a life of pretending to be someone else and of deceiving an entire population. And as much as he feels at home, that's just gotta suck some of the time.
But really, the fact that I'm contemplating this and feeling for the characters just means you've done a good job as a writer. :)
Author's Response: I have very mixed feelings about this story too (as in almost didn\'t post it). The problem you identified is one of the reasons I set the story in an AU. I have a feeling John 2.0 will never be able to entirely shake the feeling that he is not the first choice. I\'m glad you can empathize with them though! Thanks!
