From being the mysterious stranger, to the champion with a soul who's capable of saving the wrong girl, Angel has always been one of the most 'shipped characters in Whedonverse. Perhaps it's his soulful eyes, his brooding tendencies, his shades of gray... or maybe it's the fact that there is something so enticing about having what you can't have. For Angel, every love is a forbidden love.
