**AND FAIR TRUTH by de Bonheur
This is the sequel to de Bonheur's excellent LONG IS THE WAY SERIES. As the story begins Xena and Gabrielle are with the Amazons, happy at last while they make preparations for their joining ceremony. It is a ceremony that will only make official the love and commitment the two already share but not everyone is anxious to see them happy. Some in fact, want only to destroy their happiness... This story immediately captivates with an intriguing, suspenseful plot and a depiction of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship that is heartfelt and deeply passionate. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [See the sequel THE SECRETS OF THE HOARY DEEP] - 62 pgs., 12/8/97

**AND I THINK OF HER by Zea
This is possibly the most SENSUAL piece of fan fiction I have ever read. Depicting a moment of passion and deep emotion, this vignette is so beautifully written that it reads almost like a poem. It calls to mind the deepest longings of the human soul to love and be loved. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 4 pgs., 9/29/97

...AND IN THE END...SERIES by Mark Alger - read in the order listed below

**AND IT'S ONLY LOVE by Kamouraskan
Written partly as a series of journal entries and from different perspectives, Kamouraskan's latest is a gut-wrenching journey of the heart that finds the warrior and bard on a quest to return a young boy, abducted years before by his father, to the mother who's been desperately searching for him ever since. The mission is one that opens up old wounds for them both recalling the children they themselves once gave up and the guilt they have yet to come to terms with. Kamouraskan offers here a very sophisticated, sensitive treatment of the characters which has them dealing honestly with their own feelings and with each other, trying to come to grips with a part of the past that continues to test them like nothing else has in part because it has denied them the comfort of one another. An original style and a poignant premise makes this one a MUST READ. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 9 pgs., 2/7/00

AND STILL SHE FOLLOWS by Cousin Liz
A dark, intense story that has Xena dealing with battle lust, remembering what that feeling used to drive her to as a warlord and desperately trying to keep Gabrielle from knowing that side of her - only the bard has other ideas... This is a well-written, passionate look at the darker dynamics involved in the Xena/Gab relationship. Note: Make sure to read the warnings at the beginning of the story. - 19 pgs., 1/20/98

AND THEN THERE WAS TWO by Crys
The first entry in a planned new series called SINS OF A GODS, this debut by a talented new writer is a dark, mysterious story that begins with the warrior and bard coming upon a village recently decimated by Caesar's forces. Among the crucified they find a surprising survivor - a seemingly frail, half-dead child, who soon begins to manifest remarkable healing abilities...and a puzzling hatred for the Warrior Princess. This is well-written with good characterizations and an interesting interpretation of the series canon. - 113 pgs., 7/12/99

ANGER IS MY SHIELD by Jamie Boughen
The Warrior Bard's newest tale is an emotional and sometimes heart-wrenching exploration of Xena's psyche. As the story begins Xena and the bard are summoned to the Amazon Nation where Ephiny and her warriors are at a loss as to how to explain the mysterious disappearance of several Amazons. Xena starts investigating, never letting on about the inner struggle she herself is in - a struggle to contain the raging emotions still haunting her despite having abandoned the life of a warlord - a struggle she will eventually loose plummeting her heart into a dark place where even Gabrielle may not be able to reach it. [See also the sequel THE VALLEY OF HIDDEN FEARS] - 56 pgs., 7/4/97

**ANNIVERSARY by Rosemary
Written back in the Summer of 1996, this is a timeless vignette set eight years after the initial meeting between warrior and bard when the ex-warlord decides to celebrate their anniversary with a very special gift for her partner. Full of hope and touchingly heartwarming, this little tale remains a personal favorite. DO NOT MISS! - 2 pgs., 1/9/99

Novan ends one remarkable fanfic accomplishment and begins another, the LEGENDS LEGACY SERIES as the Warrior Princess and her Amazon Queen recall their life together and anticipate the coming marriage of their beloved Mel.

ANOTHER KIND OF VICTORY by Meleager
Sweet vignette set during those sometimes frustrating but usually much wiser golden years that has a certain bard reasuring her Warrior Princess of just how important a contribution she continues to make every day, in so many ways. Good advice in this one :) - 2 pgs., 10/3/99

ANOTHER SECOND CHANCE by Bard Blue
Set in the fifth season after the episode ANIMAL ATTRACTION, this story takes Xena and Gabrielle in a different direction from the TV show, most notably avoiding the pregnancy storyline. As the tale begins, Xena is noticing her partner's recent weariness and contemplating the second chance at life they've been given. Wanting nothing more than to make Gabrielle happy now, the warrior comes to a decision that will change things forever for them just as fate intervenes to remind them of how precious life can be. This is the first story in an entertaining new series revolving very much around the warrior/bard relationship. [See the sequel IN THE COMPANY OF WARRIORS] - 14 pgs., 2/9/00

**ANOTHER TIME, ANOTHER SOLSTICE EVEN by Beowolf
Already responsible for two of my favorite Solstice stories ever, SOLSTIVE EVE and SOLSTICE MORNING, Beowolf brings us an absolutely BEAUTIFUL new offering set exactly one year after those two earlier stories. This time Solstice finds the warrior and bard in a very different place under very different circumstances with Xena feeling horribly guilty at the life she is giving Gabrielle. The little bard, however, has different thoughts on the matter, knowing full well from where her happiness truly comes. This story is very much based on the sense of love and family and hope the Solstice season celebrates. It is reaffirming and deeply poignant. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! [PLEASE make SURE to read afterwards Beowolf's story CROSSINGS] - 4 pgs., 12/25/97

ANTONIUS SITUATION (THE) by CJ Wells
In this sequel to the stories EMBRACE and FREEDOM, the Conqueror takes the first step toward some semblance of normality in her new life with Gabrielle when she frees the young slave. Together, the two start off on a long and difficult road toward healing that will have Xena struggling to keep her darker impulses in check and Gabrielle fighting to overcome her fears as she sets out to help the woman she loves emerge from behind those walls around her heart. Meanwhile, enemies of the empire will challenge the Conqueror forcing Xena to once again taste the savageness of war and calling attention to the young woman who's quickly becoming the Conqueror's one vulnerable spot. The story features some very emotional moments as it continues a fascinating treatment of the relationship between these two women. If you enjoyed the earlier stories make sure to put this one on your list. [See the sequel DARPHUS' REVENGE] - 22 pgs., 2/27/00
