Pick a Challenge or Create Your Own:

Humor
• Someone gives Cordelia a basket of Easter Candy. Each time she eats one, Cordy falls under its magical influence. Each candy has a different effect.
• It’s April Fools Day and Angel makes an attempt at playing a joke on Cordelia, and/or his other Fang Gang friends.
• Cordelia & Angel get drunk on St Patrick’s Day, and start to see Leprechauns.

Friendship
• Angel buys Cordelia an “Easter Bonnet”
• Cordelia’s thoughts as she plans to spruce up Angel’s training area in the basement.
• The Fang Gang goes on a picnic.

Romance
• There’s a freak thunderstorm, and Cordelia & Angel are drenched and trapped together at the location of your choice.
• Baby Connor gives Cordelia a Mother’s Day Gift. Of course, it’s really from Angel, setting things up for the reveal that he’s in love with her.
• Cordy. Angel. Moonlight. Spring night.
• Spring is a time for change, and there is an awakening of feelings between Cordelia and Angel.

Angst
• The Ides of March are upon us when betrayal is key to something going on at Angel Investigations.
• It’s the season of birth and rebirth, but Cordelia knows that she is dying.

Dork!Angel Themes
• Angel tries to be poetic during National Poetry Month, but Mr Stoic gets all tongue-twisty when he tries to express his feelings to Cordelia, whether they be friendship or love.

Beige!Angel Themes
• Cordelia is planning something special for Wesley & Gunn as they celebrate a victory for their little detective agency. Angel, as usual, is stalking all of them, but especially Cordelia. Though he is too cold to care that she is spending time with them, he covets what he sees, and plans to get a little Cordy time for himself.
• It’s Mating Season for certain types of Demons, and as per usual, they seem to be drawn to Cordelia. Beige!Angel decides to step in to claim her for himself in order to save her.

Angelus Themes
• Love is in the air in Springtime, something Angelus finds abhorrent. He is devoid of feelings. There is no shred of human emotion within him. Until he is exposed to something mystical. This can spark any kind of emotional reactions and make the story humorous, romantic, etc.
