Summary: Xander Harris has no idea that he is adopted. But in the span of a week, he not only finds out that his parents aren’t his birth parents, manages to get put into “protective house arrest” by his friends (and he’s not even really sure why), and gets sent into space, where he literally lands on the head of the most wanted convict in the verse. Exploring space with a criminal sounds like a terrifying idea, especially as things start getting stranger and he starts to think even more and more that his birth parents might not have been human.
Why You Should Read This:
While the method that leads Xander to meeting Riddick is rather far-fetched, this fic is epic. A well-meaning spell sends Xander through space, right into Riddick’s lap (almost literally). Poor Xander is in over his head but trying so hard, and Riddick is so well characterized – menacing, quiet, mysterious, badass – and yet, he seems to have an odd soft spot for Xander, who is not quite who he seems. There are some dark themes, but this is a fascinating fic and worth reading. This was the first fic of this pairing that I had ever read, and it sold me on the pairing.
