Hi all,

There's a new fanfic site now available with a TON of new stories. Make sure to check out J.S. STEPHENS XENADEX at:

THE BARDS OF THE XENAVERSE page has four new interviews available with Auryn, Jamie Boughen, Phil D. Hernandez, Ogami. To read about these bards and many others go to:

New stories and some new FANFIC ART tonight also.


A sequel to IN THE TWILIGHT HOUR which tells the story from Gabrielle's perspective as she remembers the last time she saw the Warrior Princess some three thousand years before and thinks about all the centuries she's spent searching for her since. An emotional read with a sense of renewed hope. DO NOT MISS! -- 5 pgs.

AFTER I DIED by JS Stephens
Short little tale set after the events in the first season episode IS THERE A DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE which has a recuperating Gabrielle talking with Xena about their friendship. Good depiction of the relationship at this stage of the game. [Note: story includes some very mild subtext] -- 5 pgs.


Set after the events in the episode A NECESSARY EVIL, this tale has Xena trying to help Gabrielle get over the nightmares she's been having recently. Eventually they discover a new interest that succeeds in doing just that ;-) -- 4 pgs.

DARK PROMISE by Katrina and Sharon Bowers
Chapter 10 of this story 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 the daughters of Bacchus and Ares spend a little...quality time in Sunnydale ;-). 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! [unfinshed] -- 4 pgs.

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!
