Written for numb3rs100 Challenge #463 – Mirror

Title: The Man in the Mirror
Pairing/Characters: Colby
Rating: PG13
Word Count: 100
Spoilers: Judgment Call, The Janus List
Summary: Colby feels lost and alone even when he looks in the mirror
Notes/Warnings: Read the disclaimer on my LJ

It's been days since he last shaved; they won't let him have a razor in his high security holding cell.

He knew this could happen. His handler had prepped him for all contingencies and had reminded him to stay strong. This was all in the service of his country, even the parts where the degenerate violent criminals he put behind bars spat at the sound of his name, calling him a traitor - the lowest of the low.

Colby knows who he really is inside, but sometimes he looks in the mirror and doesn't recognize the man staring back at him.

Title taken from the song of the same name.

UGH. Feels.

You know... to this day, I still can't watch the Janus List. It hurts me too much. I don't think I've ever been so mad at a TV show for making us wait all summer to know about a character's fate.

This was a great glimpse at Colby... the Colby we didn't get to see. Thank you.

Poor Colby! He was all alone in this ordeal.
Like Candi said, I can't watch Janus List, despite how good he looks in that episode.

Thanks for the nice drabble!

All the stuff around Janus List still makes me want to just hug Colby.
