Thank you to enigmaticblues for hosting!

Notes: This story takes place in my Gifts-verse, where Spike was resurrected as a human after “Chosen” in 2003 and went back to the name William. In 2008 he and Buffy were reunited, in 2009 they married, in 2011 they had a daughter named Eleanor and in 2015 they had a son named Geoffrey.

The title and several quotes are from William Wordsworth’s Ode Intimations of Immortality from Recollections of Early Childhood.

There is also a quote from W.H. Auden’s September 1, 1939.

Warnings: I hesitate to post this story. It is very, very dark. I’m not even sure it’s “canon” for my Gifts-verse.

Whither is fled the visionary gleam?
Where is it now, the glory and the dream?
