**ELEMENTAL by JTD - [Alt]
Set immediately after the events in the episode ONE AGAINST AN ARMY, this is an epic first-time story offering a captivating look at the Xena/Gab friendship in transition as the two finally find in the ever strengthening foundation of love between them the courage to at last share all that's in their hearts. It's an emotional journey that takes place as the two become engaged in yet another life or death struggle, helping an old friend to protect refugees from Tripolis trying to make it past slavers to reach the safety of Thessaly. They soon uncover that an even more heinous evil is at work in the efforts against the refugees. To fight that evil they must put their personal issues on hold, but all the while warrior and bard are moving closer to one another and dealing with the unspoken fears and regrets that have haunted them since their recent rift. JTD does a very nice job with the characterizations of our two leads and doesn't shy away from the harsher realities these two women experienced during the conflict which almost destroyed them. Despite the intensity of some scenes, the relationship here projects an easy-going, gentle caring that makes it incredibly appealing. The overall plot is well-structured and well paced offering a good combination of action and drama. One for the MUST READ list, this one comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 152 pgs., 5/1/00
