AtS - spoilers, Series Finale. If you don't want to know, don't read this till you've seen the end of Angel.
As always, they're Joss', I only wished I owned them - then the series would be coming back in September.
An echo, a glimmer, a fleeting dream. that's all I am now. Once I was a human being, with dreams and hopes and a lover I looked forward to waking up with every day of a long and rewarding life...
Thanks to a insanely obsessed lab tech that would have made a better lab rat, I exist on the fringes now, and Something older than time has my body now, and sits where my intact soul used to... I'm fragments of myself, and everyone - including the entity - Illyria, they call it - her... thinks I'm gone, forever.
I "don't exist" any more, but I'll do what I can to assist those I love, however I can... Maybe, I can help Illyria with what it means to be human...
Wesley's dying in my/her arms.
And for the moment when she "lies" to Wesley, I live again. We share my sadness and grief at his passing. from me, Illyria learns the weaknesses and strengths of humanity - and it improves her. *We* share our grief and rage, executing Wesley's killer, then throwing ourselves into battle with the forces of Wolfram and Hart, knowing none of us may survive this...
But, this time, if I - if she and I - *we* - go, I know that we won't go to whatever waits beyond, alone.
And it's my hope that Wes will be waiting for me there, beyond.
