Buffyverse poll! YAHF - yay or nay?

I may be validating/rolling my eyes over at I Need A Parrot right about now, and the thought came up - as it often does - what's with the fascination for YAHFs? (Yet Another Halloween Fics)

(Oh? And the plural of 'Scooby' is not 'Scooby's'. I'm just saying, if I was being a real pain in the ass I could boot it for bad spelling and use that as an example...)



YAHF? (Yet Another Halloween Fic?)

Yay! You can never have too many!

Why always Xander-centric YAHFs?

You're kidding right? It's 'cause it's Xander!

Actually, there are others out there who write Willow, Buffy, Cordy, Giles, Oz, Other Random Character YAHFs.

Because the prompt was on a Xander list, dummy!

Is there such a thing as a Good YAHF?

Yes, in the first round of answers to the challenge

Yes, but you have to wade through a pile of crap to find it

More than you think, they're a clever way of introducing other genres/fandoms/concepts to the show

Of course there are! Every one of them is an instant classic!

(And, if you haven't read it, The Many Lives of Xander Harris by m_mcgregor is so funny because of stories like the one I have open in a tab right now... and which I can't find anything actually wrong with apart from a couple of spelling mistakes and some not-great formatting...)
