[Previous report was for 2/9/98]
A short one tonight :)
THAT THE NIGHT CAME by Hobbes
Powerful vignette that has Xena coming across a familiar face from her days as a warlord - one of those few who for an instant made the Warrior Princess stop to think about what she was doing.
FROM TIME TO TIME by Georgia
Terrific new story that has Xena and Gabrielle meeting Kelly Valchris - a kindred spirit from the future who has traveled back in time determined to stop the man who killed her sister from continuing his mission of hatred. Separated from the partner she loves deeply, Kelly is soon forging a friendship with warrior and bard as the three join forces with the Amazons to try to stop the danger threatening them all. Georgia does a wonderful job in drawing the character of Kelly - presenting us with a spunky, determined, brave young woman who we soon find ourselves caring for. The Xena/Gab relationship is on the money - passionate, mischievous, and very loving. A very nice read. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
TO BE A WOMAN by DelShannon
Chapters 9-10 of this story is now available. This bard's first XWP offering is a promising hurt/comfort story that has Gabrielle thinking about her feelings for Xena just as an attack intensifies these, reminding her of just how much she loves the warrior. Unbeknownst to the two of them - an old enemy has seen what they themselves have yet to admit and now knows Xena's greatest weakness. [Note: this story features extreme violence]
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.
