Review of chapter "Part 8" from Damia
I really liked this chapter of your story. Actually, I just really liked your story. I haven't really watched "Lost" before, but I'm thinking I aught to.

Review of chapter "Part 8" from hand
So I just started watching Lost and I remembered reading this several months ago. After re-reading it tonight I like it even more!
I hope that you continue it, I know it's been a good six months since your last update.
You do a really good job of integrating Xander into life on the island and I like how you made Shannon much more of a bad ass. (Kate gets way to much attention in the show)
I really want to see how Xander would deal with the other issues that happen.
Please update!

Review of chapter "Part 7" from aeslynn
Another great chapter! I still love the way you've melded the two shows together and developed the characters. Can't wait for the next installment! :)

Review of chapter "Part 7" from Rivana
Loved it, just want more. You manage quite well to integrate Xander with the storyline (I've watched a bit of Lost since my last review). I really liked the part in the end about wanting a leader, but needing a survivor. I think both Locke and Xander are of best use when they can do their own thing.
Comments from author:
Thanks Everyone for your great reviews! I'm really flattered! This is really only my 2nd attempt at fanfic & my first shot at a long form X-over. I'm still working on part 9, but my muse is cranking out the AU aspects of the story right now, so I'm currently outlining some of the future parts rather than polishing part 9. I'll try and get part 9 out next week before I go on a business trip, but no promises.

P.S. The outline currently stretches at least 16 more parts, with at 5 more TV episodes to go this season to inspire more parts.

Review of chapter "Part 6" from MBB
Once again, great chapter.
I was really surprised you had Xander be the one who shot the marshall. (I had expected the 1st guy to miss like the show, and Xander having the second gunn with bullets). But yes, Xander wopuld know where the heart is.

The latest episode that I saw is where the guy who's father died finds his empty coffin surrounded by dollies. And since I just had read your fic, I was expecting Drusilla to turn up having turned the guy. :lol:

Review of chapter "Part 7" from MagnusXXN
Personaly, I don't think Xander's being too Mary-Sue. Hes just showing what he obviously knows. Attacking Sawyer with a stake is sooo him.

But your forgetting about his temper. Which hasn't been shown off much in the later seasons, but he has one. I could list many instantes, but that'd take too long.

Taking out the fed for his own good was something he would have done. Something he would have learned from Giles. Not just putting the guy out of his own pain, but making sure he wouldn't use all the medicine.

Glad you have Jack as the leader. It would have been very AU is you made it Xander.

But as its been seen on Lost, Jack has Lt's. Sayid, and in lesser ways Hurley and Locke. Adding Xander into this would be most likely.

Love that he isn't all dole eye'd at Kate, and her the same. The Jack/Kate/Sawyer love triangle is a big part of Lost. His indifference towards Kate's former crimes is very likely too.

I mean, he knows a number of murders. Spike, Angel, Faith, Willow, Kate wouldn't even ruffle his feathers.

Any thoughts towards a friendship between Xander and Sawyer? If there are two survivers on the whole island that have the most in common, it'd be those two.

Hope to hear more soon.

Review of chapter "Part 6" from aeslynn
I love how you've managed to work in the maturity of the character of Xander that we saw more in the later episodes. I love the way you have managed to work him in virtually seemlessly into the series. I have to say, the end really had me hooked. You did the scene with the shot to the heart very well, and I'll be definately looking forward to reading more :) ~aeslynn

Review of chapter "Part 6" from Rivana
I love your attention to details, bringing the real deal of surviving into play. Burning the bodies instead of burrying them, killing off the one who couldn't be saved. Also like the Xander/Sawyer interaction. Would like to see more Xander/Locke and I think Locke should maybe know about things that go bump in the night, he seems like the type.

Review of chapter "Part 5" from MBB
Once again, good chapter.
But one small thing I don't get: if Xander was on his flight *to* Australia to pick up the slayer that was *in* Australia, how come said slayer could be on exactly the same flight? Shouldn;t she be on a flight out of Australia? Or is this a different slayer then the one Xander was ment to pick up?
Comments from author:
Per "Lost" canon, Oceanic Flight 815 was a flight from Sydney to Los Angeles. Remember, the phone call w/Willow in part 1 was a flashback. Xander did go to Australia from Africa, and he did spend some time there, but I'll cover what happened there and why he ended up on the flight that in a *flashback* to be named later (included in a future part).

I'm trying to write this as standalone as possible from the Lost TV show, but it'd probably help with understanding some of the story, if you've seen the show. "Lost" the show dumps you into the show immediately after the plane crash & slowly fills you in on the other characters backgrounds through flashbacks.

I won't be flashing back in "All things considered..." to any of the other characters pre-crash experiences other than Xander. My goal is to try and keep the plot very close to Xander's PoV as I can.

Review of chapter "Part 5" from Rivana
And there's the prophecy... Lovely.... *rubs her hands in glee*
Loved the part where Xander turned around towards the jungle to say his piece about the radio. It's small stuff like that that gives the right doom and gloom feeling. I'm curious as to why you felt it was necessary to have a mug shot of Kate, couldn't you have just had a normal photography? It would make the connection to the whatchers more natural if it weren't a marshal looking. It's not that big of a deal, I just felt that maybe there was too much 'jailbird' plot going on on all sides.
Comments from author:
Thanks for the review! Regarding the mug shot, I'm trying to integrate as much of the "Lost" plot as possible, thus the mug shot. I'm trying to tie up some of the loose the "Lost" writers have been leaving in the Original Series while adding in Xander & my own special touches. Trust me it's going to be an interesting ride for all involved.
