I'd prefer it if Xander stays human, doesn't get any powers and is as close to canon as possible and where Spike is either chipped or even better, has his soul.
If there's some fics where Xander redeems himself for his behavior towards Spike in s6, I'd really love to read them.
Anyone have any links for fics like that?
Pretty please no Buffy or spuffy bashing. I know, not everyone likes the pairing, but I personally feel it diminishes Spike if you just ignore his feelings for Buffy. It was a huge part of his characterdevelopment and to ignore it or pretend it didn't happen will in my opinion lessen the depth of Spike's ability to love.
