**DANGEROUS TRUTH (THE) by Curiositee -- [Alt]
Set in the present day, this FANTASTIC new uber-Xena story gets off to a rousing start as it follows a gutsy young reporter named Bridget Stone on a fateful excursion into the Chicago slums. In search of a lead, she'll find more than she ever bargained for when an assassin tries to end her investigation and a mysterious stranger interferes, one of the many homeless that frequent the slums, only in the blue depths of that stranger's eyes Bridget will sense a connection as old as time. Soon enough the reporter finds herself with two mysteries on her hands as she considers who may be trying to kill her while trying to solve the puzzle that is the woman who saved her...a woman whose tortured past holds secrets only Bridget may be able to uncover...Terrific characterizations make the reporter and her indigent savior immediately endearing. Combining suspense, mystery and a sense of pathos this wonderfully written tale is going to leave you anxiously awaiting that next chapter. A great uber drama in the making folks.

**MOMENT OF COMFORT (A) by Curiositee - [Alt]
This latest installment in Curiositee's MOMENTS SERIES is a very moving, emotional epilogue to the episode A FAMILY AFFAIR which finds the warrior and bard still staying with Gabrielle's family as the two try to come to grips with recent events. For Gabrielle it's a time for recollections as she thinks back on the little girl she once was and the dreamer who once followed an infamous ex-warlord in search of adventure never suspecting the incredible love and incredible heartache she would eventually experience on that new road. For Xena it's a time of emotional turmoil as she struggles to maintain her composure around the bard's family despite a near-desperate need to reconnect with her beloved soulmate. Curiositee does a terrific job here of capturing the intensity of emotions between these two women letting us feel their love, their passion and their need for one another.
