I had a story idea for a self-insert that I think might work well as YAHF. What if Xander (or Buffy or Willow, though I'm hoping Xander) dressed as a goa'uld for Halloween, and when the spell ended Xander was left not as a human, but as the actual goa'uld symbiote?

I'm assuming he would have the memories (genetic and otherwise) and knowledge of whichever goa'uld he dressed as, and likely that he'd be a bit of a power-hungry megalomaniac. I have no recommendations for who's body he could take over, mainly because I don't really expect that person to be a character, I expect Xander to...

I don't know if Limitless fits as Sci-Fi or Drama more, but I went with Sci-Fi. That aside I have two ideas for a fic that have come from me thinking about that movie.

The first:

YAHF where Xander dresses as the guy at the END of the movie, where he's already fixed things so he doesn't need the drug and is a super genius.

The second, and I think better idea is as follows:

Xander somehow finds the pills and takes one, whether he has been told what they will do or he is depressed and thinking along the lines of 'at least it's not the bottle like my parents' o...

This challenge is two-fold. The first part is just a request for more Immortal Xander fics in general. The main request though is as follows:
YAHF where either Xander makes his own costume by buying a toy sword and using an old trenchcoat or something OR there are several costumes from Highlander at Ethans. Either way though, Xander is the only Immortal that dies (and is obviously revived via Quickening) during the course of the spell, because of this when the spell ends, Xander retains the Quickening/Immortality... BUT, and here's the part I haven't seen done before, because Xander is ...

In honour of Groundhog Day... and because I have no shame... I'm going to beg for another 'Xanderhog Day' type story. I don't want it to just be a rehash of the original, but I'm sure plenty of different things can be done, especially if you like a super, nigh-on godly Xander like I do. The challenge is pretty simple, you all know the Groundhog Day movie and time loop idea. I'm even fine with it being open to more than just a single day (I know plenty of you (that know what it is) hate it, but Chuunin Exam Day is a good example) it can be a variable time-span that is reset if certain condit...

I know that E:FC wasn't all that popular, but I loved it. Recently the show has come out on DVD and I've been rewatching it. In doing so I had an idea; what if Xander wanted a simple costume, one that would let him look pretty much like normal so he wouldn't have to spend a lot of money... Ronald Sandoval.

My idea has a few different parts depending on which way you want to take things, the simplest being that Xander dresses as William Boone or Ronald Sandoval (complete with Skrill and CVI), and then, using the almost-cliche of the Hallowe'en spell not being allowed to kill anythi...

This is a really basic idea, but I've seen so many fics where Xander goes back in time to change things, make them better, but in none of those does he really do much for himself. My idea is that it's well after the TV show ended, timeline wise (I know nothing about the comics), something happens, or maybe even on purpose, Xander sends himself back in time (into his own body, not physically) and he then uses his knowledge of the future not so much to help the Scoobies, but to control them, direct them. In the back in time fics I've read, Xander always seems to STOP the Hallowe'en thing, but ...

I'm actually just about to post the first chapter of a story based on this challenge myself, but I don't think I can update all that often, and I don't know that I can pull it off writing-wise, so I'm hoping someone else might run with the idea.

There's a series of novels by Kelly McCullough, I'm not sure that the series has a name, but the main character is Ravirn. He's a child of one of the Houses of Fate (as in THE Fates) who has been cast out, but given a new name, and has become a minor power in his own right. In the end of the most recent book, he and his familiar hav...

Earlier today I was thinking about all the YAHF fics where Xander is one specific soldier; Hammond or O'Neill from Stargate, Spartan-117, an uncle that fought in Vietnam, etc. What if, since Xander went as a 'generic soldier dude' and NOT something specific, he became ALL soldiers, from ALL times and ALL dimensions, etc. At the time, he used the weapons he had and went with the flow, but imagine if, since there were so many people in the composite he became, only a small portion of the knowledge, skills, abilities, etc. were lost....

Imagine a Xander with the implants of a Spartan, ...

The idea for this is YAHF; one in which Xander dresses as Jarod from The Pretender. I haven't found many Pretender crossover's, and I really like that idea. That said, my challenge goes beyond that; Jarod knows about prophesies (in the movies, if not the TV show) since there are some about him, what if, along the way, he found out about the things that go bump in the night, magic, etc. My idea is for Xander to dress as Jarod, while Jarod is in a Pretend as a mage of some sort. If you know Pretender at all, you know Jarod goes all out, and he's a super genius, if he studied magic he would p...

Ok, the gist of my challenge is this; when they were young, Xander and Jesse both loved comics. They loved them enough that they created their own superhero's, normally using the powers of those already in the comics they read. Basically what I'm picturing is 'YAHF' but instead of going as a set costume, Xander picks and chooses from the discount bin to make the costume of his and Jesse's favourite made up hero.

I don't have a name, but the rundown of powers I've thought up (which can come quickly or over time) is he is from another planet and has pretty much all of superman's power...
