Not Who You Thought I Was

I loved it, I absolutly hated that they got a different actress to play her and then changed her name! I got so mad, and its funny that the new actress, Alexa something, wasn’t even Vin’s first choice, he was rooting for Rhianna, I think I spelled that right, and so was I. If *pukes*Kyra comes back in the other TCOR movies they should get Rhianna to be her again. I don’t know why, but I think she was a better actress. 😀 oh and I agree with the don’t make Riddick and Jack lovers thing, it just doesn’t work for me, I don’t see it either, she idolized him, she didn’t flirt with him or have a crush or nothing. lol wow this got long. 😀


Nice 😀 I personally don’t want riddick and jack to be lovers, so I’m happy with the ‘kyra is his sister’-twist to it. But please don’t make jack his lover….They’re so wonderful as friends, it would take away that power. Besides, they have so much of this brother-sister feeling to it that it would seem like incest…Me don’t like 🙁 But this story (so far) didn’t contain any of that, so I love it. Keep up writing this stuff and I’ll keep reading. Love, Nienke (Holland)


Yes! Yes! Yes! I didn’t mind the whole Kyra/Jack name change thing and I could even see the evolution but I ABSOLUTELY did not want to see Jack die (or did she?). This gives a total new venue to pursue. Keep it up. P.S. – I have read many of your stories and love them all. Keep writing. PLEASE!


Finally someone who agrees with me. I hate the whole “Kyra” thing. Highly disappointing. I’m interested in watching this story progress. I’ll keep my eyes open for an update


I really like your idea of not interchanging Jack with Kyra. Keep up the good work.
