Two news ones, two updates below.
NUTBREAD! by Xenrielle
The Warrior Princess reveals a very different side of herself when she and and her bard join some village kids for an old game. Sweet. - 5 pgs.
SOULMATES by Fu Bard
Rather original new story that has the Warrior and bard helping another deal with the loss of his soulmate even as he helps them to recognize their own. Fu Bard presents us with somewhat different characterizations in a story that is ultimately hopeful and reaffirming. - 36 pgs.
THE AMAZONS OF DAHOMEY by Susan Smith
Chapter 18 is now available. A sequel to Susan's outstanding THE CHARIOTEER, this story continues where that one left off, following Xena and Gabrielle as they join a caravan on their way out of the Kingdom of Har back toward Greece. The two are reveling in the new freedom of their relationship unaware that fate is about to interfere once again throwing Gabrielle and a young Amazon initiate into the midst of deadly power play and leaving a desperate Xena looking for her soulmate in a land full of strangers all with agendas of their own. In this latest chapter the warrior faces the gods of Dahomey Amazons. This story again displays Susan's impressive ability to develop suspenseful, engrossing plots around an equally well-crafted Xena/Gab relationship. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [unfinished] - 3 pgs.
OF DRAG KINGS AND A WARRIOR PRINCESS by Susan Smith
Chapter 13 is now available. This talented writer tries her hand at uber fiction this time around, producing a very different, very original contemporary story. Rosalind Olchawski considers herself a fairly ordinary college professor leading a fairly ordinary life - a life so ordinary and so bland, in fact, that recently Rosalind has started to wonder whether she's even capable of feeling that passion others seem to feel. It is a concern that is answered one evening when she accompanies a friend to a club and discovers in the startling blue eyes of a drag king the destiny she had been waiting for. In this latest chapter drag king and professor come to an understanding. Very well written, with characterizations that are sensitively done and an intriguing storyline this one should keep you hitting that page down button. [unfinished] - 2 pgs.
"Who Can Withstand The Raging Flood" by Angelique
Inspired by LAO MA'S KISS by Elaine Sutherland.
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 Gabrielle, depicting them as more than just friends.
