Hi all,

B L Miller has moved her site and revamped it adding a TERRIFIC new opening page among other things. B L Miller'S SITE is now at

Short one tonight - one new one and two updates - all alt.


A delightful comedy of errors that once again proves the originality Xenite bards are capable of, this new offering by Anima has Xena and the bard in a funk, still unable to completely recover from the horrors of the rift and fearing that perhaps their relationship will not survive. Determined to at least look for a solution the two decide to take a vacation on the island of Lesbos where they are soon meeting the Tenth Muse herself, Sappho and discovering a wild new sport involving some wooden boards, big ocean waves, and rather strange modifications to their language ;-) Meanwhile, undetected by them, Aphrodite and Cupid are doing the rounds, spreading love and doing mischief - including one particular little faux-pas that soon has major repercussions for the sadly distant lovers. Well-written and highly entertaining, this story is very much in keeping with the spirit of the TV series - mixing emotional moments with quirky humor in a winning combination. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 39 pgs.

DARK PROMISE by Katrina and Sharon Bowers
Chapter 14 is now available. This latest entry in Katrina's BLOOD AND ROSES SERIES promises to be one wild, fun ride. A crossover tale featuring the characters from BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER, this story has Buffy getting quite a surprise when she meets Willow's aunts who aside from having the same names as a couple of popular TV characters, also keep setting off the slayer's hypersensitive senses. In this latest chapter Angel gives in to his hatred for the Sunwalker. Katrina and Sharon's characterizations are on the money and will delight fans of both series although this is entertaining even if you only watch one of them. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [unfinished] -- 9 pgs.

Parts 6-7 are now available. A delightfully entertaining new offering that finds the Bard of Poteidaia in a difficult predicament after Apollo kidnaps her and she unknowingly eats a little too much ambrosia. The new goddess then embarks on a quest to find someone willing to take her godhood away so she can return to the mortal who owns her heart. Some hysterical moments in this as the bard turned goddess leaves her mark all over Olympus :) In these latest parts the Warrior Princess and new goddess are reunited as Gabrielle finds a possible solution to her dilemma. Very well written and very cute! Terrific characterizations. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [unfinished] - 20 pgs.


"A QUEEN'S SACRIFICE Story Cover" by B L Miller
Inspired by the story A QUEEN'S SACRIFICE by B L Miller.

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!
