Heh wow you put up both my fanfics (heaven's gift and together at last) and my gallery. Kinda makes me feel good that you liked my stuff enough to link it. Thank you.

Thinking of my fanfic I have to get back to work on that! But it is going to be painful to write since I am inching ever closer to the Slayer change...

I'd just like to say I'm quite flattered, too!  Especially since the little one-shots I did have been linked.

Unfortunately, I don't have an artistic bone in my body, so artwork is a no-go for me :(  I wish I could draw, and Mene's pictures are incredibly sweet :D

Thanks. I am working one another one for the artist challange over at SHS. Two if I can get them done in time. And of course Xan's girl will be in them too. Can't draw him without the woman he hopelessly loves after all.

Well, I wrote this over a year ago, and just finally got around to editing and finishing it up. Not particularly good. We're all doomed anyway, so what is the point?

I have an unfinished sketch of Xan up on my LJ that's going to (eventually) be part of a really massive portfolio project with BG NPC's. He's moping at me because he doesn't have a left hand and isn't colored yet. You can find him at http://serendipityhq.livejournal.com/ there, pretty close to the top.

Thanks, added! I just was reading an e-mail from arabellaesque/magrat, then went to see the updated "Reclaiming" and thought "One more Xan story! Must read, must add!"  - and here it was. Eyes that used to look with love and now reflect nothing - what a scary thought...

Another work - Baldur's Gate by Vegetius, and though I only read one chapter, I can recommend it already,

and there's a serial At Soul's Edge by a fellow modder, Tempest, which, too, features Xan heavily.

Again, please, forgive me if I missed something, and if you have a link(or many), please, post it all here.

Added some deviantArt links - I can recommend this artist in particular. Very sweet, very lovely, and Why Haer Is A Sparrow is, while not about Xan, priceless.

Hi, I wanted to thank you for creating such a breathtaking mod - Kulyok, you're amazing :)
I'd say you have a great future as a writer before you :)

I also wanted to share with you my latest version of Xan picture http://daytha.deviantart.com/art/Defender-of-Evereska-63588204

Don't know if you've seen this yet, but the fourth one down from the top is meant to be Xan. I like it.

I should point out that these are meant to be used as PC portraits, though. The BioWare NPCs are on later pages.

Ooooh, yes, the author mentioned Xan mod(after this Orlando Bloom edit appeared on the page), so I'm rather waiting for it. :) I should definitely link to G3\Clan Dlan portrait packs soonish, too, come to think of it.

Your page regularly shows "404 not found" to me, so I linked straight to G3 portrait subdivision, instead.
