RATING: PG-13 for mild language, mild violence and a little sexual innuendo.

DISCLAIMER: Most characters are the property of Joss Whedon & Mutant Enemy.  The plot is mine.  No copyright infringement  intended.

SPOILERS: Well, since Joss decided to change his mind about who sired Spike, as well as a lot of other bits and pieces of Spike's background, there are no longer any real spoilers in this story.  In fact, it will now have to be categorized as an 'alternate universe fic', much to my chagrin.  Just keep in mind that it is based on events up to and including 'Becoming' and possibly some bits and pieces here and there after that.  But spoilers?  No, not really.  Although, as it is a sequel to 'Take Your Time', it does obviously have spoilers for that story.  In other words, this story is based in its own universe, that which was created by the events in 'Take Your Time'.

IMPORTANT NOTES: *This is the sequel to my little saga 'Take Your Time'. If you haven't read it, don't read this story. You won't understand it and will be missing most of the fun.  So please, click here to read Take Your Time first.  Thank you.

Okay.  So, if you have watched the episodes 'Fool for Love' and 'Darla', you will realize that this story is now officially an alternate universe fic.  Boo hiss!  Yes, this fic is based on my stubbornness in believing that *Angelus* is Spike's sire, *not* Drusilla.

Big thanks to all my various betas...Tracy, Lore, JR, Ves...I will thank them individually on each chapter.
As always, I change chapters even after they are betad, so any mistakes you may find are mine, all mine!
