Summary: In the days leading up to the final fight, Spike is triggered on a different victim. Now everyone's dealing with the consequences.
Notes: Takes place in BtVS season 7, starting from roughly before Lies My Parents Told Me, though I have taken a few liberties with the timeline and certain events. Contains some dialogue from the show and, obviously, spoilers.
