DescriptionI've seen some WH40K/BtVS crosses, and they all seem either start out dark or go incredibly grimdark over time. Let's do something different. Something more in the spirit of, "Cavalry's here. Cavalry's a frightened guy with a rock, but it's here." Xander goes as a soldier for Halloween... a soldier with a red sash, a black coat, and a very nifty hat.

Cain's reaction to waking up on a Hellmouth is likely to be equal parts surprise, "run away if I could figure out _where,"_ and no little measure of absolute glee at having enemies he can shoot that will _stay dead._ (See Interitus Prime, necron tombworlds, etc.) And we have to see Spike's face at meeting one of the finest chainsword masters of the galaxy.

Of course, if we have Cain, someone had to go as Jurgen... Jonathan or Andrew, anyone?

Up to you if anything sticks post-Halloween, or how Xander's choice of costume might affect other characters'. (Willow as Inquisitor Amberly Vail might be very, very scary.)

What I'd mainly like to see is the effects on Xander of having shared the mindset of a soldier who was an ordinary, unaugmented human being, trained to face down things even nastier than Slayers normally survive, and who still managed to live long enough to retire.

And if at all possible, keep the story upbeat. Xander and Cain both try to look for the brighter spots in the world.
