(Fic) Good for the Soul

Here's a little drabble for you. It was sparked by a discussion with 2maggie2 about the degree of Angel's culpability in Season 8, and I made the point that doing evil and being evil aren't necessarily the same thing. True, the difference might not matter much to the victims of your actions, but they probably would matter to your confessor. Assuming Angel still went to confession, that is:

Good for the Soul

"Forgive me Father, for I have sinned."
"How long is it since your last confession, my son?"
"Um...about 250 years."
"You shouldn't joke about - Oh. Oh. Y-you're a vampire, aren't you? I saw that Harmony woman on television…. Are you--?"
"Yes, Father. Will you still hear my confession?"
"Well, uh, if you’re sure you want to…"
"I’ve got a lot on my conscience. Um, how much time do you have?"
"A-as long as you need, my son."
"Right. Shall we do this in chronological order, or by category? Perhaps we should start with the murders. Or maybe  torture?"
