We have a new Web site dedicated to Mel and Janice Fan Fiction! The site is called simply ADVENTURES and is already featuring two of the best Mel/Janice stories around. The URL is:
JOURNAL #4 by Gabrielle of Potidaea as translated by Shelley Sullivan
The fourth entry in this FANTASTIC series is now available. Thanks to the efforts of one VERY talented translator Shelley Sullivan, the Journal of Gabrielle of Potidaea, bard extraordinaire, Amazon Queen and friend of Xena the Warrior Princess, is now finally being made public. The Journal exists in parts written in a series of ancient parchments and follows the adventures of Gabrielle and the reformed warlord from the time they first met. In this latest parchment we see Gabrielle begin to give serious thought to the craft of storytelling as she takes Xena's advice and starts to look for her own voice. We see the bard experience one of the most significant events of her young life as with a show of courage she earns the gratitude of a dying warrior and the right to call the Amazon Nation her own. Finally we see the first reunion of Gabrielle and Perdicus since she left Potidaea and in a telling passage, read about the young bard's guilt over the path her former betrothed has now taken. This journal covers the period depicted in the episodes HOOVES AND HARLOTS, THE BLACK WLOLF and BEWARE OF GREEK BEARING GIFTS.
CAPTURED by Virginia Leonard
Chapter two of this story is now available. This tale has Xena and Gabrielle meeting up with an old friend of the Warrior Princess - a roguish thief with an eye for the ladies and a penchant for trouble. In this latest chapter the warrior and bard get into a little trouble themselves but fortunately...it's with each other ;-) Previously reviewed 6/9/97.
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.
