Thank you to Harmony99 for the gorgeous interplay of light and dark making up the banner!
Canon through Ats 'Hell Bound.'
Warnings: Though nothing is too graphic, suicidal ideation is for Spike's very low mood after he saves Fred and loses his chance at a body, and the torture tag is because some of the anger that gets expressed crosses the line.
DISCLAIMER: These characters and the Buffyverse do not belong to me; this is just me bringing my own (sub)text. All publicly recognizable characters, settings, etc. are the property of their respective owners. The original characters and plot are the property of the author.

Warning: Very general mention of the bathroom scene from 'Seeing Red.' I did not add the 'Rape (Attempted)' tag to the story, but will gladly do so if anyone feels it is necessary.
Thank you so much to Harmony99, who gifted all of us with the amazing banner for the story!
