Setting: Season 7, "Chosen"
Character: Andrew POV
Andrew finally feels like Buffy and the others have accepted him. He knows they never wanted him there, and knows he's only going with them now because they need all the fighters they can get. But still, here he is with a sword in his hand, on the side of the angels.
It's all he's wanted, for months: the chance at redemption. And maybe - probably - he's going to die, but it's the way it should be. He's not running now. He looks at Anya, ready at his side, and says softly, "The good fight, yeah? You never know until you've been tested. I get that now."
The Ubervamps rush them. And it begins.
