Chapter Title: Loose Ends
Disclaimer: Obviously, I'm not Joss Whedon
Summary: AU after BtVS Season 3.
Warnings: I hate spoilery warnings, so let's just assume that dark stuff, non-con, m/m, torture, occasional character death, violence, kinks, language, and other fun things like that are likely to happen here.
Author's Note: This is a sequel to The Right Tool, which can be read here, or a quick summary can be found here. It's less graphic than RT, but chock full o' angst, and you should still heed the warnings. I'll post a chapter a day, and comments are muchly appreciated. Huge thanks to kid_viciously for the beautiful (NWS) art, and to shapinglight for vetting my British!
Some chapters, like this one, are longish, so I'll post them in two parts.
Chapter 1a: ( I’m starving, he thinks sleepily. )
Chapter 1b: ( Spike's mouth drops open.... )
