Hi guys,

Couple of new ones tonight and an update :)


OLYMPIAD by Kaiser
The first nine chapters of this promising new story are now available. The tale has Xena and the Gabster agreeing to protect an arrogant star athlete headed for the Olympic competitions who's supposedly being stalked by assassins. This is well-written, combines a little bit of subtext with a bit of maintext and has some VERY funny moments. It reads quite a bit like a TV episode.

The fifth chapter of this story is now available. This mysterious tale begins with a Roman soldier on watch at a fortress in the land of the barbarians as he is thinking back on the number of soldiers killed recently - some right as they slept...Before long he too will witness such a slaughter while in another part of the Roman empire a man by the name of Julius Caesar will realize that someone has been teaching the barbarians, the art of war...


THE SHADOW by Watcher Watcher's latest love-fest has the warrior and bard trying to find a mysterious assailant before he can find them. While doing so they struggle with the emotional highs and lows of their relationship and try to deal with some strange powers the assailant seems to have.

For those of you reading this post who are not familiar with the term alternative (alt.), it refers to ADULT stories that add a romantic element to the relationship between Xena and Gabby, depicting them as more than just friends.

Happy reading!
