A/N: I don’t really care for dark, depressing stories. Dark!fic just isn’t my thing. Too damn bad the muse wouldn’t listen, and despite my endless pleading, he demanded this one be written in response to the “Third Slayer” challenge posted for round nine of Fang Fetish Awards. I will warn you up front that this is not a fluffy, happily-ever-after story. And it takes place in an alternate reality wherein Angelus has never had a soul. Spike never came to Sunnydale, never got caught and chipped by the Initiative, and never fell in love with Buffy. He is still evil and soulless with no intentions towards the side of good.
