Written during the long lapse between the time Spike placed his order and the delivery of the goods. Something just isn't quite right.

Long fic is LONG- it's a hair over 40,000 words, and it took me nearly a week to read the first time (I had a newborn then, I have a ten-year-old now). Long fic is also Jossed, 'cause it only covers up to "The Gift" and thus is missing a lot of the info from the flashbacks in later seasons. (e.g, while Dracula makes an appearance, The Immortal does not.) Show-canon only, as near as I can tell. It's really, really, really good.
Fair warning: it does contain torture, and some dubcon/noncon stuff (your mileage may vary on how non the con is, I personally found it to be more dubious than outright). My major problem with Fanged Four fic, and "Many Loves" in particular, has always been- and remains to this day- the interpretation by many, many writers (some of them very good ones!) of Darla as the No Fun At All obstacle to Angelus/Spike, who regularly whomps Spike's ass out of jealousy because Angelus loves him more than her. (Mind you, I can easily picture Darla whomping Spike's ass regularly, but I'm pretty sure she'd do it BECAUSE HE'S ANNOYING.) For the purpose of enjoying this fic, I have to breathe and remind myself it's written in the first person, and thus cast Spike in my head as an Unreliable Narrator. (He may THINK Darla is whomping his ass because she's jealous, but she's actually doing it because he's a brat. *g*)
For all that, though, I can say, without hesitation, it's probably the best Spike characterization I've ever read.
