**ANNIVERSARY by Rosemary -- [Alt]
Written back in the Summer of 1996, this is a timeless vignette set eight years after the initial meeting between warrior and bard when the ex-warlord decides to celebrate their anniversary with a very special gift for her partner. Full of hope and touchingly heartwarming, this little tale remains a personal favorite. DO NOT MISS! - 2 pgs., 1/9/99
NICE DAY FOR A PICNIC (A) by Rosemary -- [Alt]
Written in August 1996, this vignette is a sweet first-time tale that has Xena and her bard having an UNUSUALLY nice picnic ;-) - 2 pgs., 1/9/99
**RAGING HEART by Rosemary -- [Alt]
Save some of that Amazon ice ordered during the reading of A SIMPLE TWIST OF FATE to help you better handle this second Rosemary classic - a first-time story written back in the Summer of 1996 which has the warrior and bard surrendering to the feelings between them as they deal with past lovers and determined ruffians. Very romantic, loving treatment of the relationship with strong characterizations of both heroines. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 22 pgs., 1/9/99
**SIMPLE TWIST OF FATE (A) by Rosemary -- [Alt]
After nearly three years of writing Xena fanfic and influencing many a bard exposed to her fiction through small private mailing lists, Rosemary comes at last to the Web bringing with her some classic Xena yarns, among them this early warlord/slave tale which helped to establish the genre and created a CLEAR need for that Amazon Ice Company so many of us rely on these days >:) Written in the Fall of 1996, this story is set in alternate reality where Xena and Gabrielle meet under very different circumstances. A long-time slave already, the young woman from Poteidaia doesn't expect her life to be any different as she waits to be purchased by the next warlord but different indeed it starts to be as soon as she becomes property of the Destroyer of Nations. Gentle despite her toughness and caring despite her cruelty, the warlord starts to win over the slave, enveloping Gabrielle in a passion so fierce that soon nothing else matters and as one heart surrenders, another is finally conquered. A delivery of PLENTY of Amazon ice is definitely in order before tackling this one folks. A SIMPLE TWIST OF FATE inspired many of the best alt. bards working today providing ALL sorts of interesting motivation ;-) It's a fun read and historically fascinating for anyone interested in the development of Xena fanfic through the years. A MUST READ! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 20 pgs., 1/9/99
