BECAUSE YOU LOVED ME by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Heart-wrenching new vignette which VERY cleverly marries Xena fanfic with the Celine Dion song whose title it shares. Set in the latter years of Gabrielle's life, it chronicles the moment just after she bids her longtime partner goodbye... one final time. Kleenex alert and very much worth the read. DO NOT MISS! - 2 pgs., 4/8/98

BEST FRIEND by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Sweetly passionate first time story that has Xena and Gabrielle finally giving in to the feelings they've been having for one another after the warrior is injured. - 9 pgs., 12/25/97
[French version: MA MEILLEURE AMIE translated by Fanfan at]

BUBBLE BATH (THE) by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Xena and the bard take a bubble bath. Need I say more ;-) Put in for an order from the Amazon Ice Co. before tackling this one. Oh and yes...DO NOT READ AT WORK! >:) [Note: See also the sequel PAYBACKS] - 3 pgs., 12/14/97

**DEATH OF A NATION TRILOGY by Katelin B. - [Read in the order listed here]


**ETERNAL SUFFERING by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Excellent new XWP/ST-VOYAGER crossover that has the crew of Voyager just recovering from an intense battle. Suffering from a head wound Janeway is taken to sick bay where amidst the wounded she meets the mysterious Lieutenant Gabrielle Marcus, a tall officer with dark hair, striking blue eyes and a strange ability to relieve pain using pressure points. Intrigued Janeway decides to learn more about the lieutenant and soon uncovers a story over 3,000 years old about a great love, the timeless devotion it inspired, and the evil which still surrounds it. This is a well-written story that is an absolute MUST READ for fans of the two series. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!. - 67 pgs., 12/8/97

PAYBACKS by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
The sequel to Katelin's THE BUBBLE BATH. Gabrielle gets her "revenge". Put in for a second order from the Amazon Ice Co. ;-) 4 pgs., - 12/14/97

QUEEN'S ORDERS by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
While at the Amazon village Xena and the queen decide to take a quick break from their duties. Invigorating little tale ;-) - 2 pgs., 4/18/98

**REFLECTIONS OF LOVE by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
A beautiful, touching vignette that has the Warrior Princess reflecting on her love for Gabrielle and then showing the young bard the depth of this love. Sweetly romantic and very sensual. DO NOT MISS! - 3 pgs., 12/14/97

**SCAR IN THE SHAPE OF A SHARK (A) by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
After a short hiatus this talented bard returns with a sensitive piece set after the events in LOCKED UP AND TIED DOWN which has Gabrielle once again being Xena's rock amidst the turbulent emotions set off by the warrior's renewed guilt over the past. Solid depiction of the relationship. DO NOT MISS! - 3 pgs., 11/21/98

**TO RESCUE A FRIEND by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Book I in a new series titled DEATH OF A NATION, this is a well-written story that beautifully captures the heart of the Amazon nation in a poignant, dramatic, tale that has the Amazons facing a very real threat to their future. On the eve prior to the start of a war they did not ask for but cannot run away from, a troubled Ephiny asks Xena to lead the Amazons into battle - she herself preferring to fight alongside her sisters as a simple warrior. With Gabrielle in Poteidaia visiting her family, Xena agrees - knowing full well the heavy odds facing the Amazons. None of them, however, suspect the true extent of the danger that awaits them but it is a sense of this danger that prompts the Warrior Princess to examine her heart with regards to a certain bard...and to counsel a friend to do the same with her own heart. Featuring an excellent depiction of Ephiny, this story has the feel of an epic. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 160 pgs., 12/14/97

**WATERFALL (THE) by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
A beautiful, romantic, sizzling little piece about a warrior, a bard, a waterfall...and that first time. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 5 pgs., 2/26/98
[French version: LA CASCADE translated by Fanfan at]

**WHAT HAPPENS NOW? by Katelin B. -- [Alt]
Book II in Katelin's DEATH OF A NATION series, this new offering begins immediately after the event's in Book I: TO RESCUE A FRIEND. With Xena and Ephiny critically injured, Gabrielle and a small force of Amazons and Centaurs head for Poteidaia in hopes of finding help there but the days ahead will be a challenge for the young Amazon Queen as she has to deal with a disapproving family and the seriousness of her warrior's condition. Katelin presents us with an emotionally gripping premise that revolves around the relationships between her characters, all of whom are solidly depicted. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 133 pgs., 3/9/98
