Summary:

Right after Tabula Rasa, Buffy realizes something weird: Spike had no memories but wasn't evil. A vampire with no memories didn't even realize he was a vampire and had no inclination to do wrong when he should have theoretically been more like a new fledge with the power of an older vamp. Does this mean he's not inherently evil? Is his personality strong enough to override evil? Hell they assumed he had a soul when he doesn't, what does that mean?

Thinking this through and going to talk to Spike, Buffy stops seeing him as an evil thing and starts seeing him as a person. How does this change the rest of s6? How does this change Spuffy as a relationship?



Summary: What if Buffy realizes that during the Tabula Rasa spell, Spike had no memories but wasn't evil. Not only that, he had no inclination to do wrong and none of them questioned that he was a soulful human. How would that change her outlook and their relationship?

I didn't do the entire challenge, just the set-up, so to speak.  Just a short scene I would have liked to have seen on screen.
