From the moment Angel heard his son’s heartbeat, everything changed.
He, like everyone else, had his suspicions when Darla turned up on his
doorstep pregnant, but when he realized that the child had a soul,
he knew that a miracle had happened to him.

Angel loved his son instantly, and was devastated by the thought
of losing him before he’d even had a chance to live – but when
Darla sacrificed herself for the child,
Angel had the one thing he never ever thought he’d have: a son.

Angel named his son Connor and proved to be a very doting father and
was really, truly happy – blissfully unaware of the prophecy
Wesley had discovered. Believing that Connor was in danger
with Angel, Wesley took him away and he soon ended up
in the hands of Angel’s nemesis, Holtz.

Angel rushed to try and save Connor, but he was too late and
Connor disappeared with Holtz into a hell dimension.
He desperately tried everything he could to bring Connor back,
but he soon had to accept that there was nothing he could do.
He had lost his son.
However, Connor had survived and grown up in Quor-toth and found
a way to return to Angel. But it was not a happy reunion.
Having been raised by Holtz, Connor had been poisoned
against Angel and hated him now.
Despite everything he had been told, Connor couldn’t help but
be drawn to Angel and their similarities were undeniable.
Just as it looked like they might have another chance
to become the father and son they were always meant to be,
Holtz framed Angel for his murder. Connor, completely
blinded by grief and rage, he sealed Angel in a metal box
and threw him into the ocean.
When Angel returned, he was furious with Connor, but still loved him.
He kicked Connor out of his house, hoping that Connor
might still become a champion someday. Despite his anger,
Angel couldn’t help but watch over Connor and, as they
were brought together to fight against evil over and over again,
they started to grow closer.
But Connor had a fragile mind and, after a lifetime of being manipulated
by Holtz, was easy prey for the demon possessing Cordelia.
Connor was incredibly conflicted, but Jasmine, possessing Cordelia,
pressed all the right buttons as she turned him against
Angel once again. Angel knew that Connor was a victim in
the situation, but he didn’t have the time to try and help him
as he rushed to kill Cordelia before the demon possessing
her could emerge.
Angel was too late and Jasmine was born.
Both Angel and Connor immediately fell under her
spell and followed her blindly. It did, however, give
them the chance to spend more time together and
start to build the family life they both had always craved.
But it was all destroyed when Angel saw Jasmine for what
she really was, and he and Connor fell on opposing
sides once again. Angel tried to save Connor, but soon
realized that Connor had been immune to Jasmine’s ruse all along,
and was choosing to stay on her side.

Despite choosing Jasmine, the doubt started to eat away at Connor.
While Angel was fighting hard to break her spell over the
city of L.A., Connor suffered a breakdown as he realized
that Jasmine was a lie he couldn’t live with anymore.
Connor killed Jasmine in front of Angel, and then ran away
as his life had lost all reason. Angel could tell how heartbroken
he was and quickly tried to find him.
While Angel was invited to take over Wolfram & Hart, Connor had
become a completely broken man and had taken hostages
in a mall as he prepared to kill himself. When Angel
discovered what was happening, he knew that after everything
he had been through, Connor was now past saving.
So, Angel took the deal with Wolfram & Hart – on the condition
that they erased Connor’s memories of him and built fake
ones so that he could be part of a real family.
Connor was finally happy, but Angel grieved for his son again.
He took the reins of Wolfram & Hart for the sake of his son,
even though he knew no good could come from it.
His world was rocked once again when Connor, with no memories
of him, showed up at Wolfram & Hart after his family
had been attacked by demons. Angel discovered that Vail,
the demon who had built Connor’s fake memories, was provoking
him because he needed Connor to kill his enemy Sahjhan.
Connor agreed to fight him to save his family, but Wesley was
suspicious and when he discovered that Angel had made some
kind of deal with Vail, he shattered the Orlon Window –
the magical device storing Connor’s memories.
Angel nervously approached Connor, but he seemed the same.
Connor later came by the offices to say goodbye to Angel
as he prepared to go back to his life, telling Angel that
he had to protect his parents – hinting that maybe his memories had been restored.
Facing another apocalypse, Angel used what may be his last day on
Earth to visit Connor. The two caught up, then Connor
revealed that he knew Angel was his father and had indeed
got his memories back. They didn’t talk much about,
Connor was still confused about everything that had happened,
but he made sure that Angel knew that he was
grateful for what he had done for him.

Connor came to Angel’s rescue right as he was about to be staked by Hamilton,
knowing that something had to be wrong for Angel to visit him
that day. They fought Hamilton side by side, and eventually killed him,
but angered the Senior Partners in the process.

As the Senior Partners started to unleash everything they
had against Angel, he urged Connor to go home and stay safe.
Connor resisted at first, but Angel assured him that
as long as Connor was okay, there was nothing that could destroy him.

:thud: Great job! I love this OP. I actually read through the whole thing.:)

starryeyesxx 03-20-2016 04:33 PM

You did a perfect job at doing it. How long did it take you to complete all of this?:)

starryeyesxx 03-20-2016 04:54 PM

Hmm, I can't really remember. I didn't do it all in one go, but over a few weeks - it seemed like it was much quicker than the Cordy OP did :lol:

Probably it just goes quicker as you go along.:lol:

The OP looks great.

starryeyesxx 03-21-2016 10:53 AM

Thank you! So glad you guys can finally see it :D

eternalfate 03-21-2016 12:54 PM

Nice to relive all the scenes on the OP.:love:
So many great moments even with a lot of bad ones we got.

starryeyesxx 03-21-2016 01:40 PM

I think we did get more sweet moments then most people realize :nod:

I love when Angel pulls Connor into his arms in Habeas Corpses :thud:

eternalfate 03-22-2016 12:49 PM

Probably because of how many bad ones we got, it's difficult to remember the good ones.:bawl:

I liked it as well.

starryeyesxx 03-22-2016 02:38 PM

That's true, that bad ones were really quite shocking & mad most of the audience quite angry - so I think that is how most people remember them :(

eternalfate 03-24-2016 12:51 PM

That's sad their relationship is remembered that way.:( I think of Angel had more seasons, it wouldn't been remembered more for the good because of how improved it was getting.:)

starryeyesxx 03-24-2016 01:11 PM

Definitely, I hope VK would have come back for more :sigh:

eternalfate 03-27-2016 10:37 AM

I think he would have. The stubborn writers would've been more of the issue I think.:lmao:
