Review of chapter "Chapter Four" from NuitTombee
Review:
I'm probably imagining it wrong but when I see it in my head I imagine Xander walking around with a tiny tank for a head.

After this chapter I'm rethinking it but it made me chuckle.

Review of chapter "After Action Report: Four" from Kovac
Review:
Probably the funniest YAHF I've ever read. All the characters get terrific dialogues. Fantastic writing. IMHO, better than the original "Halloween" episode.

Great work!
Comments from author:
I shall not challenge the awesomeness of Joss and the BtVS writers. Halloween stands fine on its own. I loved the compliment, though!

One of the problems with YAHF's is the use of the gimmick--costume changing people into X character--while ignoring the theme of the episode. It is not enough for the crossover to happen. A YAHF should explore how the alternate costume fits into how the episode commented on each character--Buffy seeking to be a princess again, Xander finding himself a competent take-charge guy, etc. Xander-as-BOLO clicked thematically because of both character's sense of loyalty and duty.

Review of chapter "After Action Report: Four" from Gideon
Review:
Great work! You really put the Sci in Sci-fi. And Xander still came out of Halloween with some useful skills.
Comments from author:
Along with a distinct burning sensation.

The YAHF genre is my least favorite Buffy fanfic trope and crossover device. The episode itself is an excellent one. The problem is that most YAHF's use the costume spell without also understanding the metaphor of "Halloween": masks and roles and how they can reveal much about yourself. I wanted to get that feel of transformation in my fic (along with the dick jokes) that Joss put into the ep.

Review of chapter "After Action Report: Four" from Tamojin
Review:
By and large, you have done the Bolo proud. Nice mix of teenage hormones and technological mayhem. I will agree with the other reviewers and say, "This needs a sequel."

Review of chapter "After Action Report: Four" from Gideon
Review:
Hilarious! I love the Bolo in Sunnydale :)
Overkill - the reason Bolos exist.
Comments from author:
To quote (ironically) Spike: "I think that's just enough kill."

This story was, to be honest, written as an out-and-out crowd pleaser for the good folks over on Spacebattles Forums. It got the most enthusiastic response of all the tales I've written over there.
