Review of chapter "Returning from Afar" from sunamee
Review:
Nice update. That description at the end looked like the replicator Samantha Carter. I look forward to the next update and hope you will update soon.

Will there be any pairings? Like Xander and that possible replicator Samantha or female. It would fit the theme of Xander never being with someone human or tries to kill him first before pairing up with him.
Comments from author:
Indeed it is RepliCarter. I don't mind giving that away since a lot of people have either figured it out or suspect already and I'll be going over how she survived and what she plans to do over the next few parts of the story.

There will actually be a few different pairings for Xander in the fic. Who he ends up with you'll have to wait and see, but I plan on giving Xander a healthy love life once I have him in a position to be (mostly) ready for one.

Replicators. Huh, I wasn't expecting that one.
Comments from author:
Cool, I like surprising people. This is the chapter where the story beyond the familial aspect begins to take shape.

Review:
Looking forward to the next chapter. Will we see some X/F in here?
Comments from author:
Sorry, as much as I like the two of them together I have other plans for Xander's romantic life. There will be some Xander/Faith friendship though.

Review of chapter "Returning from Afar" from kayron
Review:
When Dawn said "let's get you home", I got it that Xander felt lost and isolated. His home has been destroyed. He loves the people that he considers family, but they don't seem to be capable of comforting him. Or even making the attempt. Xander remebers that everyone, especially Willow, forgot about Jessie. There was no one to help him mourn. They disregarded any feelings he might have about Anya. They all acknowledge Xander as loyal and caring. Even if he didn't go through with the wedding to Anya, just the fact that he cared enough to ask her should have made somebody try to talk to him about her death. Maybe his father and sister, and maybe SG1 too, can help him find his center and a purpose to his life so he won't be adrift anymore. Question...arm shifting into a blade...was that a Terminator? Good story. I'm definitely going to be tracking.
Comments from author:
Well, his father and sister may just help him find his centre, while throwing him off kilter at the same time.

As for the arm thing, it's not from Terminator (though the Stargate guys probably got it from there). I'll reveal more in the next chapter or two.

Review of chapter "Returning from Afar" from kaleecat
Review:
Hmmm, RepliCarter was disintegrated by the Ancient weapon not spaced as a whole body--but then this is an AU. My biggest gripe about the RepliCarter storyline was she wouldn't have been a problem if Sam Carter hadn't suddenly been a moron (instead of the smart soldier-scientist) and Jack such a wishy-washy commander about how dangerous she was. Oh, and the little fact that no one actually talked about that RepliC. killed Daniel. Maybe you'll fix that? :looks hopeful:

I like this Xander; more cynical & definitely will be a force to be reckoned with. His mini-rant felt in character & was appropriate. Some of the other reviewers commented on it. My take is they all forgave Willow too easily given the mind-rapes she played & what she did to Warren but then she was Buffy & Xander's best friend & Whedon's secret love so Devon detox it was. Considering how Buffy avoided the Angelus problem for so long (causing several deaths), Xander should have been angry at how quickly Buffy jumped to slay Anya. I like Spike a lot but I can see the argument.

I'm looking forward to seeing how the actual first contact between Landry & Xander will be. I also think there will be some personality clash with Caroline & Xander. Oddly, I've always felt that Xander and Daniel Jackson could be friends.
Comments from author:
Don't worry, I do have rhyme and reason to RepliCarter not being disintegrated by the Ancient weapon. Fortunately you won't have to wait long to find out. The next chapter or the one after that at the latest. Props for figuring out right off the bat who the woman was by the way.

This Xander is certainly more cynical than on the show, just don't expect him to be kicking ass and taking names. At least not anytime soon, he still needs his badass moments. I agree on a lot of your points, especially about forgiving Willow. When it comes to Buffy, as much as I hate to admit it, another perspective could be that Buffy went after Anya because she actually learnt something from the Angelus fiasco. With Spike I'll be the first to admit I don't like the character. I thought he made a great villain but a lousy anti-hero/lovestruck puppy type of character. I try not to let that colour my writing too much though.

You'll have to wait a couple more chapters until Xander and Landry meet. I have a pretty good idea how that is going to go, it's Carolyn that is giving me trouble. You're probably right about the personality clash though. Given how I'm setting up his stepfather I doubt Xander would easily understand how she cut ties with a Dad who wasn't an abusive ass. And my interpretation of Carolyn is that she has a rather hot temper. Huh, now that I think about it your comment has spark a few ideas for that encounter. Thanks.

When it comes to Daniel I happen to agree with you and he is going to become a big part of Xander's life.

Review of chapter "Returning from Afar" from LFW
Review:
Very glad to see this updated
Concise SG facts and a great Xander arrives at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Hoping for more; especially Xander and Dawn and Faith
Comments from author:
Thanks, I usually have Stargate and Buffy wiki's open when I'm writing to help out with the details. And there will be more of the three of them. Look forward to Dawn and Faith torturing... err, I mean helping Xander over the next few chapters.
