  73. In S3 the gang goes to a masquerade/Halloween party hosted by David Nabbit where Angel gets rather jealous of all the attention Cordelia receives from Nabbit's male guests.

  89. Based on the Supernatural episode 'Hollywood Babylon' - Angel Investigations goes undercover on the set of a new horror movie that has been haunted (quite literally) by a few freak accidents and deaths. AI is hired to check it out, posing as production assistants, extras, etc.
  90. An old vampire foe of Angel’s comes to LA on Halloween night, wanting to seduce Cordelia away from Angel, because he’s missing a Bride. Angel, being the secure guy he is, completely loses control. The vampire foe? Dracula.

  92. Someone's been sneaking Cordy's blood into Angel's pig blood leading to some scary obsessive behavior. Will Cordy be his salvation or his doom?
  93. Costume shopping. Angel doesn't approve of Cordelia's revealing choices. Sex in a dressing room ensues.
  94. The fang gang attends a David Nabbit Halloween party and wacky hijinks follow.
  95. This was inspired by X-Files and the movie The Purple Rose of Cairo. Rebecca Lowell (Eternity) has given up on acting and has written a screenplay about a vampire detective and his seer. It's late S3, and Cordy and Angel are invited to the premiere which also falls on Halloween. Something wonky happens and Angel and Cordy switch places with the actors in the movie and have to act it out fully aware of who they really are and unable to change the plot. The "characters" are in Angel/Cordy's bodies and don't want to go back on screen. How the movie characters were written and the plot of the movie is up to you (is it a romantic comedy, a noir flick, does the hero or heroine die?).
  96. Angel has a cassock fetish but only lets his vestment loving freak flag fly on Halloween. He was able to sneak away the first year for Halloween with the excuse that it was his one night off. This year, he doesn't get so lucky. The FG, and Cordy come face to face with the fact that Angel is still one sick twisted puppy.
  97. Post NFA, Angel shanshues and a number of years have passed during which he had (or still has) a relationship with Buffy. His life as a human has been a sheltered academic one (more watcher than fighter). On Halloween he is haunted by an angry spirit that he tries to exorcize but discovers it is the spirit of a very angry Cordelia who is pissed that he has somehow blown his chance at redemption. Turns out his shanshu never meant retirement. It was never a reward. Cordy should be scary and creepy and play dirty to get through to him. No Buffy bashing, though the relationship can certainly be troubled or over.
  98. Something happens that makes Angel and Cordy switch places allowing Angel to discover what Cordy's visions are like and Cordy to experience being a vampire.
  99. The gang heads to a halloween party where Cordy has made Angel dress as Torchwood's Captain Jack Harkness. Something happens that makes Angel start acting like Jack.
  100. During BtVS years or Angel years, Cordelia gets trapped in a mirror and Angel is the only one who can see her.
