Summary: A brief exploration in contrasts as Angel gets caught up in the spell from Tabula Rasa along with the others. Very different behaviors from the two vampires in Buffy's life would be very illuminating but would it be enough to make Buffy see that those who've stayed at her side have more to offer than she's allowed them give? Would parts of her broken heart begin to mend even as the rest of her heart is in tatters? Just what lessons could they all learn from what they witness?

Hoping there aren't any glaring errors. Haven't been to sleep yet but didn't want to hold this up any longer. There should be one more chapter after this long one to tie up a lot of loose ends.
