Ah! Love it! Brilliant! This is amazing!
I love when characters you don't expect interact with each other, and this is definitely not a combination of characters I ever would've thought up. By happy coincidence, I happen to be familiar with all three of these shows! I love the story, and now that they can all talk freely I can only think it'll get better!

On the matter of why we now condemn torture...I suspect it's a mix of the Mirror rule, better known as the Golden rule and practicality.
One: If you torture someone, you've just opened yourself to be tortured. So be careful which tortures you'll allow.
Two: If you torture someone, you're teaching someone else how to torture. Always kill them afterward or those skills might later be practiced on you or someone you care about.
Three: If your target knows you are willing to torture them for a past crime, they'll be much more willing to commit crimes of an equal level to avoid capture or just because there isn't a reason to hold back anymore.
Four: And if you add a touch of dark cynicism...refrain from torture enough, convince people it never or very rarely happens... and it can come as a terrifying shock.
Much easier to get what you want from people who haven't been hardened due to exposure or spent any time mentally preparing themselves to resist such things.

You know, I might have to watch Gundam Wing. I'm familiar with BtVS and Naruto, so Duo is the only character I don't know already, and the way this story is shaping up, I am getting quite curious about the world he came from.
So, yeah, in addition to giving me an extremely entertaining story to read, you may have hooked me on a new anime. I don't know whether to curse your name or thank you, since my list of anime to watch is already too long.
Loving the story, though. You're doing a great job balancing the three characters, and the interactions between Faith and Sasuke, at least, seem to make perfect sense.

Haven't read this one since they found water - SO EXCITED to read all the other chapters and I seriously hope that you are able to continue this! As for teh specific stuff - I don't have much experience with Gundam Wing, so I like the background you supply there - enough to get the gist, not so much I get overloaded.
My favorite bit has to be all the scenes where the three of them have a cultural blank moment - the most interesting for me was teh segment on torture, but a close second was Sasuke's mental semi-freakout when Duo agreed that he was doing the right thing, doing whatever it took to kill Itachi.
Of course, now I want Faith and Duo to go to Naruto-verse, and vice versa, because it'd be hilariously awesome. Anyway, thanks for writing this and I really hope you continue!

I love it!
I don't know if you still plan on continuing this or not, but I truly hope you do. The plot is a nice slow burn and I love the way you write these characters.
Faith and Sasuke have really stayed true to how they where in their original show/manga. I especially appreciate the way you write Sasukes POV and his dry humor.
Although I've never watched Gundam Wing, I was able to follow Duo's segments without issue, and get to know the character. Though I can't say if his character is true to the original or not, I like the way you've written him. Kinda made me curious to go watch it.
Anyway, I really hope to see more of this.

Jeez, for a minute i thought that Duo was going to pull out a caleb(from Blood: The Chosen series) with the shaman

I like how you dealth with translating numbers from a different base system. That was neat.
| SyntheticMercenary chapter 19 . 7/18/2013
Interesting story, would you be continuing this though? :D Don't give up on this story! :)
| Elspeth chapter 19 . 4/17/2013
What a weird and wonderful idea for a story. Duo, Faith & Sasuke stuck together in an alien desert. They make an interesting combo. Nice job on the characterizations.
I'm glad they can finally all understand each other, the translation thing was a nice touch, but it would get a little cumbersome with another language thrown in. The plot seems to be off and running, so here's hoping another chapter is coming soon...

Thank you for updating! I'd forgotten how much I love this story-so, so much. And now they can converse-huzzah! (Thank you for taking such a long time getting them all able to understand each other-I didn't think it would happen at all. And I like things to be difficult, in stories.)
| Guest chapter 19 . 4/5/2013
Awesome stuff! Very much so enjoying. Curious as to where all you're going to take it. Please continue writing!

Rather more trusting than any of the viewpoint characters, but very practical. Let three strangers who can obviously take care of themselves and aren't overtly hostile come along, or not. If they come along and a deal is cut, then no more trouble. If they don't come along, then the caravan is no worse off. Barring the chance that the strangers kill them all for no reason (or the Sargul do), it's a win-win.
Yay for character exploration! And realistically slow changes (specifically, Sasuke is still incredibly f*cked in the head, but he's slipping out of "vengeance is everything, there are no consequences that actually matter" to "vengeance is the immediate goal, I want to avoid burning further bridges if possible so I have somewhere to go later".)
I look forward to more updates, whenever they may come. - Matsuri

Oy... Not familiar with anything past the very basics for BtVS and Gundam Wing. That said, it feels quite clear, and the character interactions are working out so far. From what I know, all three are big enough trouble magnets that this ("this" being "randomly-or-otherwise summoned by demons") could happen. And Sasuke is definitely his usual charming self. (I speak of beginning of Part II Sasuke, the one who actually held back around his makeshift team.)
