A nice ficlet. I don't remember reading your other stories, but in this you you write a decent Xander.
It's too short to say if he's outstanding, but better then a many pro-(super)Xander fic.
Also, it is a pretty hard episode to write in (not even the writers did that well) considering most characters don't know all sides of the conflicts - which by the way I think you solved nicely by having them use the information the other reveals. (something that became rarer as the show progressed).
I agree that SuperXanderfics are not realistic (although fun if done well), but I think he could be more then emotional support, there are also the roles of sidekick and supply-guy. :-)
Overall I believe you succeded in your mission of writing a positive Xanderfic, since you understand why Xander (initially) defended Riley (hoping he could emotionally support her). Which at the very least you prooves you are not a Xander-basher, if not a fan. :-)
Personally, i think there might also have been something of his own experience with Cordelia in the show's scene (love him...or let him go, but make it a clean break) to save Buff the same pain, but that's justspeculation my side. :-)

I can't believe someone accused you of anti-xanderism.
This is one of the nicest fics I've read in a while.

i know you are not a xander and buffy fan but you did just describe xander there when she need him, to save her life, hold her why she cries, and to fix her house, and make her laugh... and when she does not need him he almost disaperse
