My old computer died a very painful death, so I've been having to go back and recollect my library of fanfiction. In the process, I've reread a number of my old favorites, one of which is Jackson's Divided series. And I got to thinking... anyone else feel the disturbance of the Force?
Toth's stick split Spike into Demony Spike and Soulful William, but instead of a tug'o'war between the two, they find themselves desperately attracted to each other. The Scoobies finally get both halves in the pentagram to recombine Spike, but it doesn't work -- the split wasn't even, soul and demon aren't polar opposites, whatever reason. Which leaves a human (but immortal, at least in my mind) William needing a place to stay. Enter Xander Harris. William falls for him, but doesn't have the cunning/seduction talents necessary to drag booby-loving Xander over to the bi-side. So he asks Spike to help.
Yes boys and girls, I want to see a triad. Not only that, but I can see this completely rewriting seasons 4 thru 7. Do I have the patience or practice for such a long term project? Nope, but I'm hoping that some of you wonderful people do.
I plan on trying my hand at this concept sometime in the future, but I doubt it'll explore all the intricacies the idea deserves. So if anyone wants to take a stab at it, please do so! And drop me a line if you want a Beta for it *egrin*
