Summary: In another life, Gideon was too close to see the damage.
AN: Written for the comment_fic prompt Criminal Minds, Reid/author’s choice, instead of joining the FBI he became one of the people they hunt. Longer than your standard comment. Yep, I did it again.
AN II: Constructive criticism always welcome. Hit me with your best shot!
