I love Spike. I've loved him since he first appeared on the show. There was just something about him that made me want to see more of him. And it seemed like every episode he was in I loved him more and more. But nothing Spike does could ever make me not like him. Even when he tried to rape Buffy, I just couldn't stay mad at him. I don't ship him with anyone, but only because I like his attitude and personality a thousand times better when he isn't with anyone.
