no Why This Must Be Read:
So, I normally would not be interested in a Willow/Angel(us) or Willow/Spike story. At all. But damn if this author doesn't make me entirely reconsider my stance on this, while writing an epic that *gasp* stays true to all the characters present. I know what you're thinking: a Willow/Angelus fic in character? But, dude, read it to understand. Angelus isn't suddenly a good vampire, and Willow never stops ringing true to the hesitant Wiccan we see on screen during the first few years of BtVS.
The story's idea is pretty awesome - Willow tries to do a spell, Post-Becoming, to save Angel but accidently gets sent back in time to before Angel was sired as a vampire. Spike gets dragged along for the ride. So, then, they're trapped in a time/world not their own, and things unfold in a complicated way. The story is looooongg and plotty, and there's a sequel that is, I think, left abandoned. I still recommend reading it anyway, because I like how this story has repercussions and changes the 'verse.( Collapse )
