I gotta keep this one short because work is calling, but I didn't want to slack on answering questions, so I'll try a couple:
So is the shanshu question resolved as to who it is for and is it up for grabs still or was the talk between our two vampires more about just trying to cheer the other up about the future?
That remains to be seen. Wolfram & Hart, however, really seemed to bank on the fact that it was Angel who was going to shanshu after causing the downfall of all that is good. I mean, they REALLY believed it, so much so that they poured all their resources into kickstarting that destiny. But, still, who knows what the future could bring?
I will say that I have no plans for it as of yet. Love the character, though.
Okay, back to work!
