Episode #2: The Harvest.
Disclaimer: Another day, another…they don’t pay me anything at all. I just do this to amuse myself and you. That’s what allows me and mine to slip under the radar while playing with characters created by those more fortunate than us.
Author’s Note: The mangled quote is from William Shakespeare’s Hamlet, though I doubt I needed to point that out. In my mind this is set directly after Buffy meets Angel in the crypt during the episode The Harvest. Although, it could fit nicely in any number of places early in season one.
The Paragon of Monsters
What a piece of work am I, how ignoble in reason, how infinite in flaws…
I spend my time staring at the sun, or as close as I’m able, when I should be at her side. Instead of helping, I trade insinuations and shallow taunts.
What’s worse, I know I’m right. I beguiled many a comely lass in my time using nothing more than chilly indifference, keen wit and a sharp tongue.
This one needs my distance more than my help. She’ll never become what she must with me mollycoddling her.
I only pray that we make it that far.
