Title: The Devil You Know series
Canon: The Chronicles of Riddick
Pairing: Richard B. Riddick/Vaako
Rating: Explicit [NC-17]
Word Count: 23,384
Summary: Post-Riddick, Vaako comes looking for assistance. They strike a bargain.
Recommendation: Man, this was some good stuff. I love how this story more than most of the others I’d read really leaned into the whole Necros are dead or undead not having to eat/sleep/etc and how it is a process that can be undone with time. I loved how Riddick and Vaako grew together, no softness really just familiarity and comfort. It is a little brutal in places but considering the canon that is to be expected ending with as close to ‘happily ever after’ as these characters could get. Good stuff.
