This feels very 'right' to me. Connor's state of mind is usually portrayed as so absolute, so certain, but it seems to me no one is ever *that* certain about anything. He had few choices left, none of them good. Nicely done.
Author's Response: Yeah, I can\'t see Connor as being absolutely certain about everything, especially given these circumstances. Glad you liked this! Thanks so much! - Raine, 11/26/06
