The first ever Conqueror Solstice tale and the third entry in the SEVEN WONDERS SERIES, XWPFanatic's latest is a very timely read that has Gabrielle convincing her beloved Conqueror to reinstate the festival season. With things going well in the empire, Xena orders a series of celebrations, loving the sparkle of excitement in the eyes of her Amazon Queen and willing to endure even the more stifling traditions just so everything is as perfect as possible. It's a time that will reawaken feelings of home and family for them both but one which will also remind them of their duties to Greece and the ever-present dangers always lurking close-at-hand. Bringing back Pei-cha and the rest of the supporting cast, XWPFanatic does a terrific job in continuing to develop these characters, exploring the many sides of the Conqueror and delivering a very appealing depiction of her growing relationship with Gabrielle. These are two women as different as night and day who nevertheless complement each other beautifully and love each other passionately. A MUST for that Solstice reading list - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 31 pgs., 12/27/99

In an EXCELLENT stand-alone hurt/comfort story that recalls the Xena and Gab of season two, the warrior and bard help a group of villagers discover the source of an illness that has been plaguing them. In the process, however, that illness touches our two heroines forcing Xena to revisit a nightmare from the past as she enters into an agreement that may be Gabrielle's only hope and a chance for the warrior herself to perhaps atone for some of those sins from her past. IseQween's Xena and Gab share a casual, playful intimacy that is thoroughly engaging. There are also two women who know each other better than they know themselves and feel a mutual devotion that runs bone deep. This is a heart-warming, beautiful story that comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 35 pgs., 2/7/00

UNTIL XENA by Georgia
This is one of the first new fanfic pieces we are likely to get in the months ahead which attempt to deal with the post-rift situation between Xena and Gabrielle. Georgia's offering is an emotional vignette which has the two still dealing with the aftermath of the past several months, suffering nightmares and wondering in silence where their relationship is going. Nicely done. - 2 pgs., 2/22/98
