Long tale which has Xena and the bard going on a mission to try to keep a deadly weapon from falling into the wrong hands. Joining them is a young warrior hungry for power and glory that will remind you of Palaemon in the episode BLIND FAITH.
ONE LAST WARLORD by Silk
Tender, romantic, heart-wrenching and ultimately reaffirming, this is a story about the later years of the Warrior Princess and her bard - the life they made together, the family they formed and a love so powerful it conquered all. Hankie alert on this one :) Very nice read. Note: This story is not explicit.
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.
