CHILDISH GAMES

This is a long-time favorite of mine which with its release now on the Web will likely become a favorite of many other readers as well. It is a beautiful, POIGNANT story that in revealing a part of Gabrielle's past Xena had previously not known about, opens up a whole new future for them. It begins at an inn where the warrior and bard come upon an old acquaintance of Gabrielle's - a childhood friend from Poteidaia whose presence unnerves the bard and has Xena wondering why? Wonderful writing, a solid presentation and original, well-defined characterizations combined to make this an exemplary read. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 8 pgs., 11/17/97

CREATIVE LICENSE

Reality meets Xena: Warrior Princess in what has to be one of the most charming stories I've yet to read in fanfic. Ella once again stays true to her reputation for skillful, original writing, delivering a very different type of warlord story which has the warlord Xena at last meeting the pesky bard that has been making her life just a tad more difficult as of late with her "slight" embellishments of Xena's life. As it turns out - Xena isn't quite the feared figure from Gabrielle's darker stories nor the heroic one from her more recent ones. Neither is Gabrielle the mirror image of the bard from her own tales. Far from perfect, these two women are nevertheless drawn to one another in a sweet recognition of simple attributes and noble hearts. A celebration of humanity in its many shapes and forms, this delightful addition to Xena fanfic comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [See the sequel REALITY CHECK] - 6 pgs., 5/13/99

DEJA VU ALL OVER AGAIN
A delightful new story based on the premise of the episode BEEN THERE, DONE THAT which has Xena once again trapped in a never-ending day with only one possible way of breaking the time loop - she has to help the bard find...her true love. Terrific grin potential in this ;-) HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 8 pgs., 1/20/98

REALITY CHECK
In this sequel to her ground breaking story CREATIVE LICENSE, Ella continues the delightful story of one less than perfect warlord and one very imaginative bard as Xena finds herself without an army, discovering all of a sudden that there are definite advantages to that bigger-than-life reputation Gabrielle's stories have given her. Charmingly real, this Xena and Gabrielle live in a world where perfection is more fiction than anything else but soulmates can still find one another, can still love and laugh and make it easier for one another to deal with the craziness of the human condition. A welcomed break from the fantasy world of fiction, this is indeed a nice reality check, reminding us all that imperfection can have its charms too. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 9 pgs., 12/20/99

RUMORS OF LOVE
A very different type of alt. story from a bard already well- known for her originality. Set in Amazonia, the story has Ephiny trying to help Xena and Gabrielle come to terms with the realities of their relationship as the Warrior Princess reveals a surprising fear and the bard can't bring herself to let go. Ella brings a sophisticated treatment to the Xena/Gab relationship - stripping it of the ideal and immersing it in a reality that adds a very definite emotional impact. A thought-provoking piece for your MUST READ list. DO NOT MISS! - 9 pgs., 10/31/98

THE BROKEN THREAD
Beautifully poignant tale set on the eve of a bloody battle that has Xena preparing herself for the encounter when a mysterious stranger walks into camp - a stranger that looks like an older version of Gabrielle. To Xena's amazement, the stranger proceeds to tell her an unbelievable story about a warrior who left her love behind to go die in battle and the bard who then became a warrior herself in a desperate quest to alter the timeline. The stranger is certain that if that bard can stand beside her lover during the battle - two lives will be forever changed and two souls reunited. FANTASTIC tale sure to pull the old heartstrings!

IN THE EYE OF THE BEHOLDER

This amusing little tale from one of our fanfic veterans finds the warrior and bard trapped in a cave where they discover these mysterious scrolls chronicling quite an outlandish future for the two of them. A concerned Gabrielle worries about the pain and betrayals, the lies and hatred those scrolls seem to predict but the Warrior Princess knows exactly what to do with them ;-) As always, Enginerd excels at portraying a Xena and Gab that are clearly best friends and soulmates, enjoying each other's company, able to tease one another, able to share their fears. She recaptures that second season feel in a tale that makes a statement and is fun at the same time. - 11 pgs., 8/14/00
