Larry followed Xander from a distance. He was heading to the library.
"How many times..."
As Larry walked nearer, he noticed the door was open slightly.
"So, how is Cordy?"
Giles sighed. "Other than the fact that she repaired my coffee maker, she seems to have control... Yes, can I help you?"
Xander turned around, then backed up. "Um."
Larry shook his head. "I finally figured out that the supernatural was what you were referring to a while back, Xander. Not the other thing. So don't worry about me trying to pick you up."
Xander blinked. "Ok... um, supernatural?"
"Spare me. I got possessed on Halloween night, and watched some people turn to dust when I blasted them."
Giles adjusted his glasses. "What other thing? And you got possessed?"
Larry sighed. "The other thing is private. Xander accidentally stumbled onto it, and it's to his credit that he kept it a secret. As to the possession part... I got a Star Wars Rebel Pilot costume from a shop called Ethan's."
Giles rubbed his head.
Xander snorted. "Great. This rounds things out. I became Chewbacca, Cordelia dresses up as R2D2 and gets affected as well.... And we're still trying to figure out the inner workings of the probe droid that crashed nearby..."
Larry stared in shock.
"So Larry, any specific pilot? Or just general."
"Jek Porkins. He was one of the ones that died in the assault on the first Death Star. What wasn't mentioned though, was that only the best pilots were launched. Luke originally would not have been included, but Biggs spoke up for him. Minor character he may have been, but Porkins was good."
Xander nodded his head. "So, want me to build a blaster for you?"
Buffy walked into the library and saw Larry of all people talking to Willow. Then she blinked. Was he giggling?
"Don't ask. He was possessed by his costume on Halloween, and he's a new member of our crew. Leave it at that."
"Ohhh Kay. Where's Xander?"
"Building a blaster for Larry."
"The Rebel pilot uniform he wore, while generic, gave him the memories of a minor pilot in New Hope. Named Porkins."
"Why can't we have a boring day on the hellmouth? I'd love to be bored. Nothing to do but twiddle my thumbs."
Giles rubbed his head again. The headache was back.
(The other thing reference is from the second season when everyone was looking for a werewolf, and Xander thought Larry was one.)
