**WHAT ARE LITTLE GIRLS MADE OFF? by DJWP
The talented bard who brought us the already classic A BARD DAY'S NIGHT returns with a FANTASTIC new story complete with all the elements that have made her tales among the most entertaining in XWP fan fiction. Visiting the city of Chalcis to replenish their supplies, Xena and the Gabster stop by an apothecary where the warrior hopes to find some of the medicinal herbs and potions used in healing. Unbeknownst to them both, their shopping trip will eventually give way to a nightmare as Xena soon finds her effectiveness as a warrior somewhat...reduced. DJ's characterizations of Xena and the bard are among the best in the business - very playful, sexy and sweet. She is adept also at creating a strong supporting cast as anyone can attest to who was enchanted with her unforgettable Sappho and the poet's fun-loving followers in A BARD DAY'S NIGHT. Featuring a number of colorful characters who again will leave you grinning, this tale is EASILY one of the most original I've read to date in XWP fan fiction - a marvelous combination of humor, suspense, romance and drama that will satisfy the finickiest of readers. NOT TO BE MISSED folks! This receives my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! - 186 pgs., 12/27/97

**WHAT DAD DOESNíT KNOW, WONíT GET HIM KILLED by FlyBigD
In an ADORABLE sequel to WHAT MOM DOESNíT KNOW, WONíT KILL HER the Warrior Princess turns the table on her mischievous partner during a visit to the bard's hometown. As a panicky Gabrielle watches in amazement, the feared ex-warlord starts to use all her charms to win over her partner's family but one particular challenge may be too much even for Xena...the obstinacy of the man from whom the bard's own stubborn streak originates. This is a enchanting, fun story with the wickedly flirtatious and passionately loving treatment of the Xena/Gab relationship that has been a favorite with readers for years. A terrific addition to FlyBigD's growing fanfic contributions. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 24 pgs., 4/26/00

WHAT IF by Bat Morda
Another solid hit for this gifted bard! Set during the events in the episode COMEDY OF EROS, this is basically a "what if" tale that looks at what could have happened had Joxer NOT made his way in between a certain warrior and Gabrielle when the bard was hit by one of Cupid's arrow. Clever and funny. - 18 pgs., 8/21/97

**WHAT MOM DOESNíT KNOW, WONíT KILL HER by FlyBigD
WICKED little story set in Amphipolis where Gabrielle, frustrated by a couple of weeks of being "good" for the sake of Xena's mom, has decided to try to entice her warrior into being "bad" again >:) It's a monumental battle of wills - and libidos - as one very sultry little bard takes full advantage of her power over the Warrior Princess while Xena agonizes - torn between possibly giving her mom a heart attack - or having one of her own ;-) This delightful visit with our favorite twosome will have you grinning from start to finish.

Poignant little tale about two friends so scared over the possibility of hurting one another that they may just end up doing just that. Interesting twist in this one. - 7 pgs., 12/12/98
http://www.fortunecity.com/village/villageplace/334/what-the-future-holds.html

**WHAT THE HAND DARE SEIZE THE FIRE? by Cheaza
Taking some liberties with the events depicted in the episode REMEMBER NOTHING, this story exudes raw emotion as it chronicles Gabrielle's thoughts in the hours following her escape from slavery. The Gabrielle depicted here is a young woman scarred both physically and emotionally, who desperately wants to believe in the golden savior of her dreams but is too terrified to accept the love being offered by the incarnation of that savior. Deeply poignant this is a MUST READ for anyone who was touched by the story told in REMEMBER NOTHING. - 6 pgs., 3/23/98

http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Labyrinth/6338/question.html

WHAT'S YOUR FANTASY by Lace Priest
This new bard is on a roll tonight :) Another cute tale that has a rather tipsy Gabrielle spilling her guts about a personal fantasy, never suspecting that it could become reality. - 6 pgs., 7/30/98
http://www.geocities.com/Area51/Labyrinth/6338/fantasy.html

WHAT YOU CANíT SEE... by T. Novan

http://www.ausxip.com/fanfic11/what_you_cant_see.html

WHATEVER BROUGHT US TO THIS MOMENT by My Warrior
A follow-up to My Warrior's NOW I REMEMBER, this new entry has the warrior and her bard still in Amphipolis while Gabrielle recuperates from her recent injury. It's a peaceful time that allows both women to reflect on their years together and their love for one another while Cyrene herself reflects on the course her daughter's life has taken. Nice reaffirmation of the Xena/Gab relationship. - 7 pgs., 4/22/99
http://xenafiction.net/scrolls/my_warrior_wbuttm.hts

WHEN by Emperor Penguin
Sweet, thoughtful vignette that has Xena wondering when her feelings for Gabrielle changed from mere friendship to the love she now feels for the little bard. - 9 pgs., 8/31/97
http://www.obsession14.com/XenaRotica/EPenguin/when.htm

WHEN FATES COLLIDE: ANOTHER TOUGH DAY AT THE OFFICE by Creme Brulee
A look at the Fates - one Fate in particular - as you've never seen them before. Our story commences with the maiden, the mother and the crone all chained up with nowhere to go. Unfortunately, the maiden and crone can't stop complaining and it's really beginning to get on their sister's nerves. To her relief, one little bard comes to the rescue...only it isn't exactly the type of rescue our less-than-motherly Fate had been hoping for. A tour-de-force of irreverent writing. Very cute. - 2 pgs., 7/31/01
http://members.fortunecity.com/cremebrulee1/wrt2/wfc.html

WHEN IN ROME by T. Novan
Part 11 of the LEGENDS LEGACY SERIES has Xena and Gabrielle taking a vacation in Rome where the present ruler of the Underworld is hoping for a little revenge against an old nemesis but a certain blonde distraction puts things on hold for a while ;-) Mischievous entry with the leads in their usually insatiable mode. - 5 pgs., 6/15/00
http://ausxip.com/fanfiction/ll/legends11.html

WHEN SHE AWAKENS by Seska
A sensual little tale that finds a warrior being utterly seduced by her "sleeping" bard. Romantic piece emphasizing the connection both physical and emotional between our two leads. Very nice. - 5 pgs., 8/19/01
http://amazontrails.com/xena/whensheawakens.htm

**WHEN THE BOUGH BREAKS by Pink Rabbit Productions
An EXCEPTIONAL novel which takes it's place among the best in XWP fan fiction. Xena and Gabrielle are enjoying a peaceful time, sharing their love and growing closer when a troop of soldiers inform them of the strange killings which have been taking place in the area. It is a mystery that will bring Xena face to face with some ghosts from her past and once again imperil the lives of both warrior and bard. This novel features solid characterizations and a well-structured, intriguing plot. The love story is passionate and rich in emotion. GREAT storytelling! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 166 pgs., 11/4/97

**WHEN THE NIGHT CLOSES IN by Sharon Bowers
This latest entry in Katrina's BLOOD AND ROSES SERIES is a crossover story which has Xena and Gabrielle meeting the Louis from Anne Rice's commercial novel INTERVIEW WITH A VAMPIRE. Written in a style reminiscent of the novel itself, this tale has the men who originally published the incredible interview of the vampire Louis discovering two lost chapters from the original manuscript. In them Louis remembers his encounter one night with the immortal Xena and shortly thereafter with her lover - the Ancient bard with whom he and his kind share a distant kinship. This is well-written with rich characterizations that do justice both to the XWP characters and to Anne Rice's own. As seen through the eyes of the vampire, the bond between Xena and Gabrielle is breathtakingly sensual, strong, and timeless. This is a MUST READ which should particularly appeal to fans of both XWP and Rice's novels. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 22 pgs., 12/21/97
http://bearblue.150m.com/library2/1990s/STO/brose/night/night.html

WHEN THE STARS THREW DOWN THEIR SPEARS by Cheaza
Cheaza's second offering tonight is a sentimental first-time story set during the early days of the Xena/Gab friendship that paints a very innocent, trusting picture of the bard and a rather vulnerable, uncertain one of the Warrior Princess. The combination gives way to a very emotional story in which neither can deny the feelings they share any longer. Lots of angst in an engrossing read. - 9 pgs., 3/23/98
http://xenafiction.net/scrolls/whenthe.html

WHEN TRUE LOVES KISS by Debby  Save Alert
Ares is up to his old tricks again in this romantic tale that has the warrior and bard once again being pulled apart by the god's jealousy. Determined to get Gabrielle out of Xena's life, Ares changes the past, placing them in a different reality where Xena never saved the bard from slavers and Gabrielle never left her home village. Much to his chagrin, however, the two are fated to meet in this life as well as Xena, uncovering a plot to attack Potidaea, travels to the village to help protect it and there finds herself strangely drawn to the barmaid turned bard with red-gold hair. This story includes some funny moments with Aphrodite :) - 49 pgs., 7/97

WHEN WE DANCE, WHO LEADS? by LZClotho
Set just after the event's in Clotho's earlier story NEW TERRITORY, this is a very different alt. story that has Xena and the bard a bit at odds as they work on the dynamics of their new physical relationship. Aside from trying to deal with Xena's constant need for control, the two soon realize they may sometimes not be quite...in synch ;-) This is an original, realistic tale, sensitively told and well-presented. - 20 pgs., 1/5/98, re-released 1/5/99

**WHEN XENA CAME TO TOWN by WordWarior
This new tale from WordWarior is a departure from her usually dark, serious pieces - and an absolutely marvelous one at that! It is a story told by a tiny aspiring bard who on a certain day finds herself hiding with Digger, her best friend, when right before them their hero appears, the Warrior Princess, to fight the thugs threatening their town. Told from a child's perspective, this story has a tender quality to it that is thoroughly endearing. We get to see Xena and "stick lady" through the eyes of innocence and the picture painted is one guaranteed to warm your heart. WordWarior has shown in previous stories an uncanny knack for creating unforgettable characters. With a nameless little girl, she once again exerts that skill in this new offering. The story has NO graphic scenes in it at all. It is appropriate for all ages and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it to every Xenite out there. - 4 pgs., 6/97

WHERE TO START by Lawlessgal
Very passionate entry from this new writer that has a worried Xena demanding to know why her bard seems so distraught and distant - then finding a beautiful spot for them to have a heart-to-heart. Some Amazon ice might be in order for this one which beyond the passion is also about a very deep and honest love. DO NOT MISS! -- 7 pgs., 9/14/98
http://www.amazontrails.com/xena/start.htm

**WHIFF OF BRIMSTONE (A) by Chris M.
A crossover story featuring characters from XENA and the recent FOX TV series BRIMSTONE as well as references to a number of other current TV shows, this little tale should put a grin on fans of popular television. Part of the BLOOD AND ROSES Altaverse series> which has Gabrielle as the immortal daughter of Bacchus and Xena as the immortal child of Ares, the story begins with Gabrielle on her way to Sunnydale to interview for a teaching job at the High School there when she runs into a mysterious figure at the airport - a woman with a distinct scent and a dark purpose Gabrielle is compelled to learn more about. Her efforts soon reveal the woman as one of 113 souls recently escaped from the bowels of Hell and determined now to make humanity pay for turning its back on the gods that once gave her power. Thinking that she needs to interfere with the vengeful soul's plans, Gabrielle is about to do that when she finds herself face to face with yet another mysterious figure - a stylish man with longish hair who assures the ancient bard that he has matters well in hand then proceeds to introduce himself...as Lucifer. Chris does a wonderful job of merging the worlds of XENA and BRIMSTONE, capturing the essence of the characters and excelling in particular with the characterization of that wicked but disarmingly charming devil from BRIMSTONE. With the references to other TV and historical personalities this should be a fun read even for those who didn't follow the BRIMSTONE TV series. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 16 pgs., 4/2/99
