I'm so sorry that I didn't reply to this sooner, but THANK YOU. This one of my very favorite stories that I wrote, and it's lovely to hear that it worked for you. We just rewatched the episode in S5 when Wesley shoots his (robot) father, which is what I had in my mind when Wesley kills Roger in this story. It was such a powerful moment in the series and to think I might have captured even a tiny fragment of that in this sort of odd AU is enough to satisfy me. :-) Thanks so much for reading it and for taking the time to comment.
