BETA: Myself, lexa4227
Rating: NC-17
Pairing – M/M, Angelus/Spike, Angel/Spike
Timeline – ATS Season 4/BTVS Season 7-AU
Summary - With both Angel and Cordelia still missing, Fred and Gunn try to keep Angel Investigations running while they search for their friends. Ironically, the man everyone believes betrayed Angel is the one who finally comes to Angel's rescue. Then, as suddenly as she had vanished, Cordelia inexplicably reappears with no recollection of her life or her friends. Unbeknownst to the team, things aren’t always what they appear. Even as Cordelia regains her memory, she harbors a secret that will change their lives forever. Finally, Spike returns from his sojourn abroad with his gift to Angel that leaves him mentally unstable. Meanwhile, in Sunnydale, Dawn starts her sophomore year at the new Sunnydale High School with a mysterious new principal that may shake things up. Oh, and there's an apocalypse a'comin' on two fronts.
Feedback – It would be appreciated. My plot bunny has been lagging lately.
Author's Note - This story came to me after watching how Buffy treated Spike in SMASHED - AS YOU WERE (BTVS, Season 6). I wondered how Angel would truly feel, if he really knew how Buffy mistreated Spike. Yes, Spike is the Big Bad, and he and Angel normally don't see eye-to-eye, but they are family nonetheless

Chapter 55: Step 4 – Reconciliation (Part 5)
“What we once were informs all that we have become. The same love will infect our hearts, even if they no longer beat. Simple death won't change that.” - Darla, The Prodigal

Angel was born in Ireland as Liam, who only a few facts are known about; he had serious father issues (The Prodigal), liked to start his day with a brawl and a drink then end it with a whore (The Prodigal), and was Catholic (Becoming I). Those traits followed him all his life, so, until one understands Liam, one can't understand Angelus or Angel. This essay will concern itself with the historical facts of those traits and how Liam fit in with them. The three sections start with the fathers and sons in the 1700s, then the vices and excesses that were open, a general rundown of the role of the Catholic religion in Ireland and Liam's life and lastly the wake.

Yes, July 13th is fast approaching everyone, and that's the date when we will officially open our doors. I made some community banners that you can use if you wish to pimp the community. They are below.

Your help is truly appreciated in getting the word out to everyone you think would be interested, and I thank you in advance. If you do pimp the community, you are free to copy and paste the information any of the information from the community's profile page.

I will be making more this weekend and will have them up when they are done.
