Perfect Choice

Work Text:

"As you know, the stakes are higher than ever. Wolfram and Hart have made moves that must be countered."

"This your candidate?"

"Yes. Strong, an excellent fighter, nearly indestructible. I believe him to be the perfect choice."

"What about his darker nature? Shouldn't that give us pause?"

"That's the beauty of it. Now that he knows the nature of the curse, he'll be inclined to deny himself earthly pleasures, just in case. And he'll leap at the chance for redemption."

"A perfect puppet, never questioning our actual motives."

"Exactly. Pull Angelus out of hell and set the wheels in motion."
