Rating: I'm gonna go say R for language.

Spoilers: Halloween, plus the movie, which is a surprise.

Disclaimer: Most of the characters depicted herein belong to the almighty Joss. One belongs to a man whose initials are J.C. I'm just borrowing them for a while.

Summary: On that fateful Halloween, Xander wears a costume slightly more appropriate to the Hellmouth. Crossover costume.

Author's Note: This plot bunny wouldn't leave me alone, and it took me about ten minutes to write this. For those who are worried about my WIPs, I don't intend to continue this. Period. If someone else would like to pick this up, feel free.

"Hey, Xander!" Willow called. As her lifelong friend walked up, she asked, "What'd you get?"

He held up the plastic handgun, and Buffy frowned, "That's not a costume."

Xander shot Buffy a Look and said, "No, it's not. I know just who I'm going as, and I've got the perfect outfit, matches what he wore in the movie. I just needed this and one of the G-man's crossbows, and voila! Call me the Two-Dollar Costume King, baby!"


He whirled around, and Willow found herself staring at the business end of a crossbow. "Who the fuck are you, lady?" he demanded.

"Xander?" the redhead sputtered. "Don't you recognize me? I-it's me! Willow!"

"That's nice," he said impatiently, "but whoever the fuck this 'Xander' fellow is, I ain't him."


"The name's Crow. Jack Crow," he nodded. "Now what the fuck is going on in this fucking town?"


Author's Postscript:

Yes, I do know John Carpenter's Vampires wasn't released yet, but in this 'ficverse, it was released earlier. Also, apologies if I didn't get Crow's characterization right. I saw Vampires on cable, which means censorship. *shrug* Sorry.
