Too bad the DarkXander story doesn't actually match any of the 5 false starts, but there you go.
Actually, I'm rather pleased. It'll be short-ish. It'll be simple. Not much mystery here. Good.
Explain to me, however, why on earth you think adding Spike into the mix is a fabulous idea?
Well, actually it is a fabulous idea considering how he's positioned in the story.
One little problem: I write Spike about as well as I write sex scenes. As in...not well at all.
I'm gonna need a Spike-picker.
