A fantastic look inside Spike's head in the beginning of Season 7. I really loved how the story ended at the moment when he saw Buffy again in "Lessons".
There are so many lines I just adored in this, here are some of them:
"And he sees himself, taunting, a sarcastic smirk playing over his features, dangling sanity like a withered carrot in front of his own nose. Redemption? It's a figment of the imagination, something that now he knows to be unobtainable. So he spends all day staring at the ceiling, making friends with shadows on the wall, pools of utter blackness in the pervasive dark, and they chatter and gabble in his head and outside it, as soon as his back is turned."
"Even so, he can tell that it belongs to him, despite that it fit like a glove in days gone by and now chafes the creases of a hundred years in storage against his mind and heart."
