Please make sure to read the EXPLANATORY NOTES before reading these reviews.
**VERSE AND VIGNETTE by Ogami
In the tradition of that ever so popular episode A DAY IN THE LIFE comes this really OUTSTANDING piece of fan fiction by a talented new bard. VERSE AND VIGNETTE is exactly what the title implies - a collection of verses and vignettes all combined to create a picture of what life is like for the warrior and bard during the course of several days. Combining some hysterical moments, with more serious, romantic and poignant ones, the resulting work is simply put - a delight. Ogami's Xena and Gabrielle are two of the best characterizations of these two heroines I've seen in fanfic in a long time. They laugh, they flirt, they hurt, they reveal insecurities and strengths, they joke and cry - they are utterly and wonderfully human. Most of all they share a committed, playful, passionate love that resonates throughout their adventures here. Among other things, VERSE AND VIGNETTE has them fighting ruffians, dealing with still-healing inner scars, discussing their future together, and even visiting one of the wonders of the Ancient World where we discover the TRUE author of a certain melody that would go on to top the music charts in...ohhh, 2,000 years or so ;-) This is a MUST READ folks which will indeed leave you with that same feeling A DAY IN THE LIFE did. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! - 36 pgs., 4/14/98
**VERY LIKE A WHALE by Mike
An EXCEPTIONALLY charming new story that has a frustrated bard having trouble teaching her Warrior Princess about the finer things in life and then deciding to prove a point when the two are accosted by ruffians. Mike's handling of the Xena/Gab relationship is on the money - sweet and playfully competitive. GREAT characterization of the bard in her element! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! [Note: Story is not explicit] - 6 pgs., 4/5/98
VERY SPECIAL MOMENT IN THE LIFE (A) by Chris M.
The bard has that not-so-fresh feeling and it's up to the warrior to reassure her ;-) BIG grin alert on this little tale certain to feel just a tad familiar to many of us. DO NOT MISS! - 4 pgs., 7/4/99
