IF WISHES WERE HORSES by Heather - [Alt]
Long and well-written, Heather's first-ever fanfic offering is an engrossing, epic adventure chronicling a time of change for Xena and Gabrielle against a backdrop of intrigue, deceit, despair and newfound hope. As the story begins, the warrior and bard set out to help an imprisoned Autolycus by going after the warlord who's kidnapped the thief's wife and is forcing him to take the blame for the theft of a rare diamond. It's a mission that will bring Xena face to face with a familiar figure from her past just as her and Gabrielle are getting ready to craft a new future together. It's a mission also that will have the gods once again meddling into the lives of these two women, first pulling them together and then driving them apart in a cruel game of deception that will span continents, cost lives, break hearts and endanger everything warrior and bard have worked so hard to build together. Heather offers a good treatment of the relationship here - developing it a sensible pace. She also effectively incorporates into her plot elements of the TV episodes making the storyline fit nicely with Xena canon. A solid, entertaining contribution. - 110 pgs., 3/15/00
