Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from (Recent Donor)tchizek
Review:
Oh wow, I loved Deathworld and this is a great crossover for Buffy.

You are doing a wonderful job with the personalities of Jason and Meta, I will be interested to see how they blend with Xander and Gwen's personalities in future chapters.
Xander is more of a Hero type than Jason, but they both have the do anything to protect "their people" streak Xander's is just wider and deeper. I don't think Gwen was developed at all in the series so you can do what you want with her, I think not just doing a Meta clone would be most interesting.

I will be tracking this and hope you continue it soon!

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Kethric
Review:
So frustrated. Took me until seeing Jason's name to remember some details, but not enough to remember the titles of the books. Other reviews reminded new of the titles. I have them on my e reader. Takes me back.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Rich
Review:
I agree that Pyrrans are strong - as you've pointed out, strong enough to bend steel. Buffy, OTOH, is strong enough to fight with a troll hammer which is too heavy for Spike, so I'm still a bit skeptical. But the Pyrrans still have those "kill on sight" reflexes.
Comments from author:
Thank you for the review.

I'm not sure what the deal with the hammer really is. Before I wrote this, I looked over the web trying to find out just how strong Buffy is. There were different levels given everywhere I looked. One site even said that her strength varied episode from episode. That one speculated that the hammer might be mystical in nature, not simply heavy. Where only "alive" beings can pick it up.

I really won't put too much into them being stronger then her, but if I find reliable sites (more then two) that can give her steady levels of strength, then I'll change it. I'm mainly banking on Pyrrans being more dangerous then a slayer with as you stated "kill on sight" reflexes. Jason, while not native Pyrran, spent enough time there to get them. Even with his skills, he wouldn't survive otherwise. So, Xander will have them also.

Thank you again for the review.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from CrystalBlaze
Review:
The Deathworld trilogy!

I remember having that as a child, that set of tales was incredible.

Jason's powers had much to do with avaliable energy, I always felt, as he was open to the telepathic ambience of Pyrrhus.

(Pyrrhus, as related to Pyrrhic victory, which was about the result when the militants managed to wipe out the main directors of Pyrrhus' wildlife. The ones that went native had no problems living in the wild. They were also likely minor psis like Jason from the way the book described them..)

Xander, with Jason's powers and Pyrrhus-centric immunities, should be rather difficult to poison and a trifle empathic to threats and dangerous intent.

Overall, this is an excellent piece and I thank you for it.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Greywizard
Review:
It's fun to see a crossover with the Deathworld series,especially since Jason is so alike and yet so different from Xander. ;-)

Looking forward to seeing where you're going with this.

One thing to remember, though, is that Jason's power was quite erratic, and he couldn't simply utilize it whenever he wanted to use it.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

From what I remember (and I'll be making sure that I use the book to verify any events, strengths, or weakness that they have) that he could use his powers whenever, but they could stop working at any time. The main thing was how strong he was at different times. He could have complete control one day and little the next. And the control could slip at any time. But I won't be using his powers as a main focus in the story. He'll mainly use his intelligence. That and the increased strength and speed from living on a 2G planet. I'll be adding a little something to the story that wasn't in the book to ensure that he doesn't lose the strength and speed. And he'll have his power holster.

I can't remember him using his powers to fight, mainly to influence his surroundings and get a read on people. So, he won't be going around pulling a Jean Grey. As fun as that might be, not for this story. Though, that does give me an idea for another story.

Review of chapter "Chapter 01- Never mess with a Pyrran" from Runewolf
Review:
Interesting start. I'm not familiar with the series it's based on. You might want to post a bit more detail on that at the start so those of us intrigued by it can find it.

I also don't have a good visual for Gwen. I think she's an OC? I think you describe her in comparison to the woman in the book? but it would be nice to get a full description of her now. Perhaps have Xander or Giles think it as they evaluate her post-Halloween?

I am curious as to how Xander will shift, as the morality of the character he became seems much more fluid than the canon Xander. Well done.
Comments from author:
Thank you.

As for giving a little bit more details, I'll be doing some of that in the next chapter. Other then that, there are really only two ways to find out about it. Reading the short info on wikipedia or reading the book. There aren't that many sites dedicated to the series. The series is Deathworld by Harry Harrison.

As for Gwen, I'm going back and editing part of chapter one to give a better idea of what she looks like and is like. Chapter two will have more. And she really isn't OC, just a very minor character in BTVS. Only in 2 or 3 episodes.

Jason was a man of the galaxy. Towards the beginning of the first book, he was growing tired with how things were going. It was losing the sense of adventure that he loved. So he jumped at the first chance to see something new.
