Fitter Happier More Productive by Zara Hemla

Five things that might happen to Connor. Funny, clever & heart-rending by turns, and I didn't even like Connor!

[Added 28/01/2004; Character Piece; 6000-20,000; Angel; Characters: Connor]

Second Hand by Kita

'Spike the vampire bard, keeper of handed down tales no one else wants.' This insightful coda to 'Not Fade Away' draws parallels with 'The Gift'. Kita's work will be familiar to all AtS readers, but I think 'Second Hand' may be her best yet (AtS/BtVS)

These Reasonable Taboos by Glossolalia

Glossolalia has captured Connor's inner voice incredibly well, as he tries to remain true to himself in the moral maze that is LA. Highly recommended

Things Left Undone by Minnow

Twelve vignettes about things left undone after the Angel finale. The best piece I've seen to follow 'Not Fade Away' without taking away from the episode's impact. Some of the pieces are more interesting than others, but the whole is definitely worth a try
