**FINAL REST by Kelly and Darkone -- [Alt]
Rejoice Mel/Janice fans!!! The archeologist and her Southern aristocrat are back in this tale which has the two trying to return the last remains of Xena and Gabrielle to their final resting place. The Warrior Princess and her bard are featured in this story as well - in a tale recounting their final days which I must warn you warrants a MAJOR, MAJOR KLEENEX ALERT!! This story-within-a-story is heart-wrenching but beautiful, reaffirming and unforgettable. A very nice read! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 43 pgs., 6/1/97

HOW DO I LIVE? by Darkone -- [Alt]
The sequel to NOW AND FOREVER, this story presents a different resolution to the end of season three, chronicling Xena's despair in the days following her partner's death. Compelled to travel North the exhausted warrior eventually sinks into darkness after a vision of her beloved - only to realize upon awaking that what she was seeing may not be a vision at all... The story gives a nice magical quality to the Xena/Gab connection. - 9 pgs., 12/3/98

LEAVE A LIGHT ON by Darkone -- [Alt]
A bitter-sweet tale that has Xena going against a warlord who once almost destroyed her and this time is determined to do so. The one thing helping the warrior to survive is the bard she knows is waiting for her and a love which can make all horrors go away. Well-written and very passionate. - 11 pgs., 7/21/97

Learning of the tradition among the villagers calling for everyone to wear a disguise during the festivities, the Warrior Princess decides to take the opportunity to try to calm Gabrielle's fears - even accepting some godly assistance in the process.
