Rides a Pale Horse 4/11

Title: Rides a Pale Horse
Rayne Jelly
Fandom: BtVS
Pairing: Spander. Of course.
Disclaimer: It would be a bit silly for me to claim this, when we all know I'm so clearly delusional. 
Summary: What would life be like if you couldn't die? Xander Harris is about to find out.
Rating: Stronger than Gatorade, not as harsh as whiskey? I dunno. Somewhere in the PG-13/R range for the moment.
Warnings: Overall story warnings include general angstiness, eventual implied non-con, and possible pretentiousness. Also, it’s been proofread [in as much as anyone is capable of proofing their own stuff: I find I’m not], but is not beta’d. Any mistakes are mine all mine.
Feedback: According to B.F. Skinner, a blend of positive and negative stimuli can reinforce desirable behavior and punish undesirable behavior. By introducing positive stimuli to the subject, a desirable behavior is reinforced and likely to be replicated.

General Stuff: Sorry this is a little later than usual, I spent the evening working on a psych test and running away from various sources of noise. Ah the joys of summer school. About the chapter – I quite like this one. Finally a little bit of plot, but I was playing around with some especially wacky continuity issues – this is the way it was written, and despite my best efforts, this was the way it wanted to stay. I’ve also taken advantage of the fact that this is season five, and that’s all the hint you’re getting. 
Previous chapters live here.
