Summary: YAHF. With what just came out on DVD (November 8, ‘05), I had to do this.
Feedback, It's the coin of the realm.
It was the morning after Xander had turned into his costume. And Buffy and Willow turned into theirs. All he wanted to do was make his family laugh. Only Dawn knew who Xander was dressing as, and decided to wear an appropriate costume. One thing was bothering Xander, though. ‘How Ethan got a copy of this gun, I’ll never know.’
There was a knock at 1630 Revello Drive. Joyce opened the door and saw Xander holding two pieces of his costume in his hands. What he was wearing, Joyce thought she recognized, but couldn’t remember what it was.
“Hi, Mrs. Summers.”
“Hello, Xander. What are you dressed as?”
A smirking Xander answered. “You’ll find out soon. Leave a curtain open. When Buffy, Willow and Dawn come downstairs, I’ll knock, then disappear. Leave the door open, then I’ll let tell you who I’m supposed to be.”
“Alright. I’ll leave the door open when you knock. This better be good.”
Xander smiled. “It is, Mrs. Summers. Trust me.” Xander left the house, putting the mask over his eyes, then the one over his face.
Five minutes later, Buffy in her gown and Willow in her ghost costume walked down the stairs. Buffy yelled to Dawn.
“Hurry up! Xander will be here in a few minutes!” Dawn yelled back.
“I’ll be there in a minute. This wig won’t stay on!” It was a lie, but she was in on Xander’s surprise. Dawn heard a knock on her front door. She quickly took her original princess costume off and revealed another purple costume. From under her bed, she removed a bow and arrow set, where the arrows were more like plungers than real arrows.
When Joyce opened the door, she saw Xander on the side give her the quiet please hand gesture.
“Someone is playing a prank on us. There’s no one there.” As promised, Joyce left the door open. Buffy went to close the door, when there was suddenly a purple puff of smoke at the door. Buffy cursed her dress, she wanted to get ready for an attack, but the dress was too confining. Suddenly, there was a voice coming from the smoke.
“I AM THE TERROR THAT FLAPS IN THE NIGHT. I am the single career guy all women want to date. I AM DARKWING DUCK!”
Another voice came from the top of the stairs.
“And I am QUIVERWING QUACK!”
Willow the Ghost fell on the floor laughing. She was laughing so hard, she couldn’t breathe for a few seconds.
One minute before the Janus spell is cast, Xander and Dawn trip over each other’s feet. When they landed, their duck masks fall off.
