GENERAL FICTION:

THE PRAYER by B.S. Barber
A heart-breaking snapshot of Gabrielle's thoughts as her friendship with the Warrior Princess seems beyond repair. This is worth reading alone for the very nice poem which concludes the story.

ALTERNATIVE FICTION:

GOTCHA by Allyson Heisey
Devilish little entry that has the warrior furiously giving her bard some needed...instructions ;-)

HOMECOMING by Katrina
A sweet, unusual little uber-Xena tale about two hearts connecting across the miles in a time of war.

THIS LITTLE PROMISE by Dhyanna
Emotional short story set after the events in SACRIFICE II which has Xena experiencing an unexpected reunion...

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.

Happy reading!
