Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Dantrag
I have to say that this is perhaps the best and the most balanced Xander/Halloween -story I have come accross so far. Yes, alot of people propably will complain about Xander getting anything usefull out of the halloween-deal but you don't over do it. The strengths and weaknesses are almost perfectly balanced (Stone during Day, Awake at Night. Improved Physical Abilities and The lack of real fighting skills. Mental and physical needs vs Mental and Physical problems).
You also manage to keep the personalities of each character in check and you leave enough for an open ending. Spike and Dru ran but I believe it might follow the same pattern except when Spike meets Initiative, he'd be dust. Buffy'd have no reason to have the bastard around.
Faith will still have issues, both with her insecurities and with Gwendolyn Post etc. She might still stray but Xander would be there for her.
The First Evil fight is propably the only fight that would really go differently. There is no Angel and the Medallion so they'd be in trouble. As much as I'd like a sequel, I also love the fact that your story is making me think of the different scenarios. Well done. 10 out of 10.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from RngrThorne
Very nice. I like how you worked Buffy and Xander into a relationship instead of just dumping them into one. Also, how they seemed to draw strength from each other in times of trouble was nice.
Although Buffy better watch out or Faith might try to steal the Xan-gargoyle way from her. ;-)

Review of chapter "Part Nine" from Vilkath
Good story so far, the hard parts of making Xander not have a normal life is attractive plot device. I also like that Buffy and Xander are getting closer BEFORE the release of Angelus most fics so hard up on following canon plot they won't let Buffy think of anyone else before she sleeps with the dead boy least once just to let Angelus free.
I am a little disappointed on the Drusilla front, she seems to win everything, get everything and basically have no issues. She's just an insane vampire of some skill yet she's totally unstoppable thus far even with stupid minions like Ford. Just happening to capture Kendra after a hard fight with Buffy tops that off. Not mention it seemed like going out their way to be helpless in this fic, how many fights it been now where neither Buffy nor Xander had a weapon despite being out in graveyard middle the night?
Over all this is a great story so far but the 'author's protection' of the bad guys in this fic is a bit heavy. Making normally weak and normal villains unbeatable and always able to either win or escape till the finale is always annoying.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from Gideon
Great Story! You seem to have a real talent for romantic storylines. You even had me rooting for Cordelia right throughout this story. I like how you take the time to develop the relationships and don't drop them on us fully formed. Can't wait to read your other stories! Keep up the good work.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from lordamnesia
Freaking awesome story, above and beyond what you would expect from a Halloween fic. I love how you showed that Janus + Hellmouth /= good transformations for Xander, which is more believable then some of the good transformations he gets. I also very much enjoyed how you answered the Faith part of the challenge, and how Cordy killed Angelus. 'Go poof now' indeed.

Review of chapter "Epilogue" from AngelBlack
That was a suprisingly er... suprising?.. ah! unexpected, there's the word, crossover. Bravo! I completely enjoyed the play of emotions and relationships that you brought into this fic, and I quite honestly couldn't stop reading (and was late for obligations quite a few times because of it). So thanks very much for sharing it with the world, and especially me.
