Another amazing Chapter from you matey – really am enjoying this one from you…
Am loving how much you’re getting into Mackenzie’s head and then sharing all those inner thoughts with us…
“I wish I were the woman he thought I was, she yearns longingly.” - awww – feel so sorry for Mac here…. :(
“Why not be the strong, beautiful, brilliant woman he has seen in her since day one?” - Love this line and that maybe it was how Will thought of her before that made her the confident woman we see today…
"Yeah, they f***ed up, Mac, they trusted you!" – Have always disliked this line from Will/Jeff in Episode 1 mainly because of the anger in his voice and on his face…
Love how you've bought the dialogue from Episode 1 into this... Really can't wait to read more from you matey so please don't keep us waiting too long!
Thanks so much for posting!

I really like the inside version of what is in Mac's head. Can't wait for chapter 3.

Reading this makes me feel like re-watching Episode 1 and you really captured her inner thoughts so well.
I agree with Steph, the two actors did such an amazing job

Oh, so much to love about this chapter... I don't know why you don't think it 'sounds' like chapter one. I think it does, only better, if possible.
I love the way you discuss that first shouting match between the two of them in Will's office. Looking back on that scene now, knowing all the things we didn't know the first time the episode aired, I am struck even more by how good Jeff and Emily are in it. There are all these little facial expressions that convey the hurt, loss, anger of their situation. I think you nailed the explanation of all of them!
Amazing too, the way you describe Mackenzie wanting to be the woman Will thought she was. How she imagines she is strong and capable before going on the air in the Middle East. "Why not be the strong, beautiful, brilliant woman he has seen in her since day one? Why not be Mackenzie?" Such a great line!
Amazing chapter! Hurry up and post more!

this is beautifully amazing, i really loved the way you wrote Mackenzie.
couldn't help thinking of the episode one, i have been rewatched it thousands times, and their re-encounter really made me feel sad...
your story made me feel heartache a little when thought about what Mackenzie felt at that time, and the spoiler for next season made me feel heartache again...

So, I love this beyond all reason. That is all.

This is truly sad, but really well written and it all makes sense. The way he used her name and still calls her Mackenzie the very first time he sees her... *sweet* and I actually rewatched that scene and it seriously feels as if he's on the defensive after calling her Mackenzie... awww... how I wish Sorkin would give us some looooove next season!

Brillant idea for a story and so beautifully written. Can't wait to read more!

Oh my goodness... I love this! It gives us a lot of insight into Mackenzie. The lines about hating her nickname, except for the fact that it annoys her mother seems spot on.
Love the description of the feelings Mac gets when she first starts hearing Will use her name...it's an incredibly interesting and different way to describe her falling in love with him. It's as if she doesn't even realize that's what's happening...she just knows, for the first time, she doesn't hate the sound of her own name. Amazing!
The last couple of paragraphs killed me though. Heartbreaking really! You have to continue soon...I won't be able to stand having those last two sentences rumbling around in my head for too long. Hurry, please?!

What a great idea to form a story around. Her name. This is really well-written. And that last paragraph broke my heart.
