    But I enjoyed the conversations between Spike, the soul and the demon in this fic a lot and the main reason for that was, that the soul and the demon often teamed up against Spike. That was such a nice turn and - to me - a mocking of all the fics, that take the matter of the different entities too seriously and have meaningful discussions going on between the demon and Spike or the soul and Spike. Did you write it that way on purpose or am I reading too much (or maybe too little) it ?
    Maybe too much?? I'm not sure I'm that clever, lol. I actually don't know if I've read anything where the dynamic is that serious (sounds like Hamlet with the skull). My versions do have their comic relief moments (like the demon going: Pretty! over the gold. But it's almost more the Id there than anything) but they're mostly a way to show how fragmented Spike is feeling, in a hopefully nonboring way. (I think I did okay bringing them in less and less as the fic goes along to show that he's coping better).
