Let's start at the very beginning

When you read you begin with A-B-C

How do you choose a starting point? Life is a continuum, and even when you die, that doesn’t necessarily finish. And we present vampires as our prime example. So how does he choose a starting point for his story? Does he go all the way back to the day before Buffy arrived, and Jesse left? Or that momentous night when Spike turned up, luring them out into the open with his false-wolf’s cry in the Bronze? Or the even more momentous occasion of that rat fink bastard … sorry, Angel giving him to Spike? Because they were all pretty significant points in time, and all worthy of being beginnings, surely.

Or how about that first kiss? The first time cold fingers slid through his hair, tilting his head just right, so that their mouths met just right, so that he could melt against the other man, sliding his arms under that duster and around a narrow waist? The first time they acknowledged that the fire between them was lust, not hate? The first time that word (love) was mentioned between them?
