SPIKE: Hey, I'll root for anyone with half a chance of taking you down a notch.
ANGEL: What is your problem?
SPIKE: You are, ya ponce! You're my problem. You got it too good. You're king of a 30-floor castle with all the cars, comfort, power, and glory you could ever want; and here I save the world, throw myself onto the proverbial hand grenade for love, honor, and all the right reasons, and what do I get? Bloody well toasted and ghosted is what I get, isn't it? It's not fair.
ANGEL: Fair?! You asked for a soul. I didn't! It almost killed me. I spent a hundred years trying to come to terms with infinite remorse. You spent 3 weeks moaning in a basement, and then you were fine! What's fair about that?!
~~"Just Rewards,"~~ Angel, Season 5, Episode 2 (Series Episode #90)

- Fiction Rating Key Here
- "NR" = "Not Rated"
- Authors' given ratings usually trusted, but "general audiences" and "K" or "K+" are increased to "FRT" because of original BtVS/AtS series' ratings. Occasional stronger ratings given when chance glance shows they're needed. "F-bomb" and/or gratuitous coarse language marked as FRMA-AL, no matter how used. Graphic depictions of human-on-human violence and/or abuse deferred to next day's editor for private life reasons. Thanks for understanding. :-)
