Damn it Joss! You killed Spike! Xander has one eye! Spike has a soul! Well, ever since the seventh season I have never been Jossed, it just went down the opposite path that I chose to take in fanficcing. I got Jossed ONCE seventh season (dammit, MY idea Willow should go to England, MINE), which is good...but I'd rather get Jossed more, because that would mean the show would be going my way. I like canon (hard to do with X/S, sure, but still) and he made it so very, very difficult. So YAY miraculous ressurections! At least there's rumor (or blatant previews) of Spike being on Angel. Anyway...

Despite miraculous ressurections (v. good, don't get me wrong) I have happily taken the trip down the river of denial.

Spike ain't dead.

What are you talkin' about?
