This story is amazing. I totally agree with everything you said about Prototype 2, I don't know what madness made them think not only replacing Alex as the protagonist but turning him into the villain was a good idea.
I like to give constructive criticism in my reviews but I'm struggling to find fault with any of this. The characterisation, plot and general writing style are all so good! I know it's been more than three years since your last update so I won't hold my breath but it would be really great if you could come back to this one day.

I've retread this fic talents 4 times now, it's always been one of my favourites, I just love it 3

Even if this might be dead, this is definitely my favorite Prototype fic. I'm also guessing that Mercer was planning to turn Cross into some sort of Runner?

Noooo, please tell me you're not going to leave it like that? This story is really amazing, and I just spent the last 5 hours binge reading all 16 chapters! You wrote Alex's character perfectly in this, and my god I could t have agreed more with you about Prototype 2! I refuse to buy the game and watched walkthroughs of it online, and was so very pissed off at how they made Heller seem so Mich more powerful than Mercer when he wouldn't have even been that way if it weren't for Alex in the first place! Not to mention the Alex in 2 was like a shadow of Alex in 1, it was just utterly rediculous! If you ask me, your story here should have been the storyline of the second game. As I said before, your writing is incredible, and oh my god that part where Pariah makes Elizabeth come out of Alex gave me the chills!

You can't leave it there, you just can't! Alex and Cross' bantering shares some semblance to being a married couple, it's hilarious and brings some much needed humor to the prototype world. -fingers crossed- that this hasn't been abandoned.

Well, I personally think that creating Alex's own infected army is quite cool, as far as he doesn't lose his mind in the end. Please don't abandon this fic, as far as I'm concerned, Alex in this fic is WAY better than that of A Dead World. Seriously.

That's... not where you're going to end it... right? I mean, when I saw your rant against what the did to Alex in Prototype 2, I was elated. Someone who understands how badly they messed up Alex' character!
Then that nightmare sequence showed up, and I was confused. Why the rant if you're going to just stick P2 Mercer in the story anyway, and give large hints that that's what he might become if he does go through with it and creates his own Hive.
Now we get to the end of this chapter... and you said this was AU, but this is looking more like an inbetween-quel between P1 and P2 now, since you've basically set it up so that after this point, the following sequence of events can be: Alex creates a hive, gains immunity from Pariah, but becomes the monster he feared he would be. He wipes out Pariah and Greene again, and starts spreading his Hive more and more, creating the blacklight runners and his inner circle. Then along comes Heller and Alex decides to turn him into Blacklight as well. Cue the events of P2. Seriously disappointing after you had that huge rant which I thought was a clear statement that you disapproved of how they screwed up Alex in the new game and you were going AU to preserve Alex' character from P1. I wouldn't think this if it weren't for the bits you've put in that pretty much blatantly show that P2 Alex is in this story and just hiding underneath the surface of P1 Alex.
This makes me sad.
