He didn’t know why he allowed the girls to persuade him into a Halloween get up that was a mix of two characters from their favourite manga and animé called ‘Saiyuki
’. Although he had to admit that the concept was an interesting one because he was going as a mix of Cho Hakkai and Sha Gojyo. They were the best suited for his personality anyway. Plus he could sympathize with both of those characters and the problems they had in their past.
He’d grown his hair long and during his time seeking out the younger Slayer girls because it was too much trouble to cut. During their down time he’d allowed them to play with hair die, so now he had dark red streaks running the entire length and a fledgling Witch had made that change permanent by an errant spell. Luckily the colour spell had not affected the rest of his body hair, but unfortunately another spell took the rest leaving him hairless below the neck. Same Witch only this time her spell hit several of the girls too, however they seemed happy about it since they hated that part of womanly grooming.
He’d eventually had broken down, about half a year after the events of Sunnydale and gotten a glass eye due to the fact that something needed to be in place to aid the fractures in his skull socket to heal properly. So he had no problems with wearing a monocle for the costume, since he’s worn one several times. The impish side of him had chosen to get one with a deep green colour for his artificial eye, in remembrance of his hyena possession. Two different coloured eyes were a pretty cool deal too.
The rest was a fight with the girls when he refused to wear the balloon pants that Gojyo was fond of wearing, but he did agree to wear dark pants with a white muscle shirt. He chose a black vest instead of blue, as black would hide any potential blood stains. The effect was cooler anyway with the white arm wraps that he normally wore because they covered a pair of metallic bracers that were demon made and quite effective in protecting his slightly wimpy human arms. He was not a Slayer or someone with enhanced abilities so they were useful.
The Watcher’s Council had a weapon in storage similar to Sha Gojyo’s in that it had a sharp inverted crescent moon blade at the top, but the base was a rounded ball of strange glass or stone. Giles had explained that the stone was special in that it could store magical or mystical energies, but that no one had ever figure out exactly how. He allowed them to borrow it for the Halloween outing, as it was a weapon that could still be used, just in case something untoward happened on this night.
Little did the young Slayers know that a mischievous Wizard had taken up a similar mantle, spell-wise for this Halloween when he had set up his little costume shop. They had gone there to purchase the white wraps, the one dark red coloured contact lens and a black bandana for one of their favourite Watchers. Their babbling allowed the wizard to infuse just the right amount of magic to cause a personality merger without too much trouble or so he thought.
A certain chaos spell was all that was needed for Sha Gojyo to be born that night. Someone was watching and waiting for an opportunity just like this. Xander - OMC - Xander – OMC
From the Heavens
“Merciful Goddess,” her manservant said. “You can’t be thinking of doing what I think you’re thinking of doing.”
“Why not,” the Merciful Goddess replied with a yawn preparing to pull a person away from their home dimension and universe. “This is going to be fun.”
The manservant muttered to the side trying not be heard saying, “Please don’t create more paper work for us.”
“Quiet,” she said looking into the pools that allowed her to watch things unfold. “The best part is about to start.” Xander - OMC - Xander – OMC
Earth “Halloween was supposed to be quiet again this year,” Xander muttered to himself, pushing the personalities to the side and using the combined skills to dispatch the demons and vampires that swarmed his Slayers. Every time he used the skill of one or the other. These skills got absorbed and the attitude from the personality aided in the manner that they could, by severely kicking demonic ass.
The girls costumes had affected them in a similar manner unfortunately one of the younger Watchers had chosen to go as Miroku from the animé known as InuYasha. They were in a tight situation, but that young Watcher made his choice and shouted out, “Everyone... behind me NOW.”
All of them did, but just as the young man called out, “Wind Tunnel,” a demon advanced and tried to slice the arm facing the hoard of attackers. It was too late to lock the tunnel.
So Xander stepped in front of it and dispatched the demon with a crescent blade flying through the air on a chain rope. He used Chi powered blasts, making them fly from the base of the weapon like a rifle shooting bullets in rapid succession. However he was sucked into the tunnel first before any demon.
The wind tunnel sucked in quite a number of demons before the Blessed beads did their job and locked the tunnel up once more. The spell on the costumes was limited like Cinderella’s attendance to the Prince’s ball and at midnight everyone was back to normal. However the Watcher’s Council was still missing one of their best trouble shooter.
Seven days later and flash of light appeared in the middle of Giles’ desk. A scroll appeared and on it was written: He’s needed elsewhere with the skills he gained seven mystical nights ago. Do not expect his return. So is the will of the Great Merciful Goddess
Giles looked at that letter and knew that he did not have to deliver that news to anyone. The young man he’d known as Xander is still currently listed as ‘Missing in Action
’, in the Watchers Council books. He tucked the note in the young man’s file, added the word ‘indefinitely
’ next to the young man’s current status and closed it.
The girls having finally grown up had learned their hard lessons in messing with things that should not be messed with. Therefore they did not seek Xander out magically. They accepted that he had disappeared. They hoped and prayed that their friend was alive and living well.
That was all they could do. Xander - OMC - Xander - OMC
