Please make sure to read the EXPLANATORY NOTES before reading these reviews.
DOUBLE TROUBLE by The Merpup Collective
The Merpups get creative in this mischiveous little tale that has the bard waking up to not one but TWO Warrior Princesses - the result of a misworded request to the goddess Artemis and a bit of meddling from another source. It's a situation that only gets more complicated when Aphrodite tries to help and those doubles start multiplying ;-) A fun story with a PRICELESS ending guaranteed to please anyone familiar with the writings of Missy Good. - 15 pgs., 7/18/99
DOWN TO THE DARKNESS by Mil Toro
Xena's dark side has and continues to be one of the qualities fans of the show and readers of the fan fiction find most frightening AND fascinating about the warrior. This new story explores not only Xena's darkness but also Gabrielle's attraction to it. Set after the events in the episode THE PRICE, this tale, in fact, captures the characterization we saw of Xena in that episode quite well. As the story unfolds, Xena is growing more and more troubled by the violent dreams she's been having concerning the bard she loves - dreams that recall a past the Warrior Princess desperately wants to forget but which she knows will remain a part of her forever. Meanwhile, Gabrielle struggles to understand, afraid she may be loosing the woman she loves and frustrated at not being allowed to express the depth of that love. This story is VERY well-written and intense. NOTE: Make sure to read the author's disclaimer concerning violence. [See also the sequel DARK BEAUTY] - 26 pgs., 6/97
