Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from iamaslashaddict
I really enjoyed this. Xander was always a favorite character of mine of BtVS and the gangs treatment of him at times really irked me, so seeing him paired with Riddick and finding a quasi-family with him, Giles and Faith was very therapeutic. You really have the voices of all the characters spot on, especially Oz and Xander. Its too bad you didn't finish they story, but even still, the last chapter fills like an ending/beginning to me. Its really is too bad there aren't more fics out there like this, crossovers for these two fandoms, especially this pairing, are very rare.
Thanks so much for sharing. ;-)

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from Scorpio
I've just re-read this for the umpteenth time and I still adore it and love it and want to hug it to death.
Although, I really wish you'd finish it. It seems like it only needs a chapter (maybe two) to be finshed. Just the guys meeting with Giles for his list and driving off into the sunset. That'll give it a natural ending point.
Of course, that leads right into the next story in this series (yes, I've already decided this should be a series). Which would be a chronicle of Xan & Riddick's road trip to various places (both educational & demonic) with the occasional phonecall/postcard to Faith & Giles. It'd be a fun way to have multi crossovers. Have them run into the Winchester boys, the Charmed Ones, Veronic Mars, The Sentinel, or even the Addams family. *giggles* Maybe stay a the same motel as the Grizwald's on thier vacation or stop for shopping at the same mall Al Bundy works at. Lots of fun to be had. Plus, I wouldn't be surprised if Riddick wants to swing through LA to dust Angel either.
The third story would, of course, start upon thier return to the Hellmouth. Finding work (possibly), Anya in the mix, Faith being in school with Wes (and oh god, Andrew!), Giles starting up the Magic Box & Riley coming to town with the Initiative. And Spike! Can't forget Hostile 17.
It'd be an interesting twist to have Andrew & his boytoy Jonathan following Faith around trying to be her 'Scooby' gang instead of letting them fall into Warren's hands. *imagines Faith with geekboy!Andrew trailing after her between classes babbling about Star Wars & X-Men & possibly becoming Wes' assistant*
Just think; Wes, Andrew & Jonathan as the Trioca. Intead of villians doomed to mediocracy, they'd be semi-heroes doomed to the same. Plus all three are magical. While none of them are as powerful as Willow, there are three of them. It could turn into a weird sort of contest between Faith & Buffy.
Faith= Wes, Andy, Jono (magic); Xan (fighter/human); Riddick (enhanced fighter); Anya (former demon)
Buffy= Willow (magic); Riley (fighter/human); Spike (enhanced fighter); Oz (werewolf)
And poor Giles is stuck in the middle as always.
Please, please, please finish off this story & start in on the next. There's so many things in this verse just waiting for thier story to be told.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from Vigdis
I just re-read this story. [Yes, i have reviewed before... :)] I still love it. I still wish for it to continue. I love the way you write Xander and Riddick's personalities. The other characters are also very well written and developed even - or especially - when they deviate from canon. You did leave this at a good stopping point. It could even be classified as complete. In either case, I hope you either continue it or write a sequel. I would love to see where you planned to take the summer vacation as well as the ultimate plot of Samiel rising.

Review of chapter "The Chronicles of Riddick: The Underverse" from AlecMcDowell
very interesting story here. i like how you've humanized riddick a bit while making xander a bit darker as well. good dynamic between the pair. the whole furyan energy aspect to the relationship is particularly interesting. too bad you never came back to this, would've loved to read more- i could see interesting things happening with the initiative the next year

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from AXanFan
I have never seen or read anything about the Riddick character before I read some varied x-over fanfic. Surprisingly, the Xander/Riddick pairing seems to be quite popular. I really like the idea that Giles (and Xander) are working to help Faith. Xander is my favorite character and I do think that Buffy and even Willow never treated him as well as they should have, but I hate to see them as all bad. I always liked the Oz character -- always thought that he and Xander could have been friends -- even after the Willow/Xander disaster.
I realize it has been a couple of years since this was updated, but I figure it wouldn't hurt to ask nicely for you to continue, but if not I liked your version of the Buffer-verse so far.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from Mamodo
Nice!!!! Why didn't you continue???
It's just a shame.
There are too few Xan/Riddick fics on the net and they are such a sweet pairing.
I simply adore them.
Today there was "Pitch Black" on TV and all I could think about was how much I missed Xan in the movie.

Review of chapter "Chapter Twenty-Four" from Omegaprime
This is a really good story. Never thought a Riddick/Xander xover would work but it did. It is good that Riddick helps Xander build up his confidence and strength. I just loved how the new Xander just tells Buffy off and shows her that she is not the head slayer anymore.
Keep up the good work and please, please, PLEASE update soon.
