Well, that's another "big bad" that was likely to do something like that. Who else will you use to torture poor Xander? Angelus? Unchipped Spike? The old Master from first season? I doubt the Mayor could overcome his germ phobia enough to have sex. Did Adam have sexual desires?
Is Janus going to be nicer to Xander than Ethan is? Or will he be worse? A God could probably cause a lot of damage and then heal it and then start the torture again.
What I don't understand is why Ethan lied to Giles about how he got Xander. Wouldn't it have been more amusing (from Ethan's twisted point of view) to make Giles continue suffering with guilt?
Ethan lied because telling Giles that Xander would die without him would have Giles killing them both in a twisted way to save Xander from being used further. And he didn't want to test Giles too much when it came to the one boy he thought of as a son.
no other dark fics for me for a while... I have a few other stories that I need to write first before I plan anything....
Janus is a God... I'm not sure how he'd treat Xander, but probably more pain for Xander whenever he would claim him. I can see him using Xander as a bargaining chip and a reward system for minons.... so Xander would go from beloved pet to common toy..... if that makes any sense...
Tahnks for the review!
