FAITH by Onora
Very well written, emotionally gripping story that has Xena and the bard going after a cult using children as blood sacrifices. With Xena distracting the cult followers Gabrielle successfully liberates one of the intended sacrifices, returning the child to her village. Certain that the warrior will follow soon as she cleans house with the cult, the bard grows more and more concerned as times goes by without Xena making an appearance. It's a concern that will soon turn to desperation as Gabrielle finds herself still having to help the villagers fight the cult members even as she agonizes over Xena's possible fate. Meanwhile, a physically and emotionally tortured warrior clings to the one thing that is a constant in her life - an unshakeable faith in her partner and in the strength of will she knows is so much a part of the young woman. This story features good action sequences, strong characterizations, and a solid depiction of the Xena/Gab friendship. DO NOT MISS! - 42 pgs., 2/18/99
SHARED LOSS by Onora
Two hearts mourn the sacrifice of one very special friend. Touching vignette. - 2 pgs., 2/11/99
SOLSTICE LIGHT by Onora
Heartwarming tale set during Solstice Eve when the stubborn determination of one friend serves as the guiding light for another. Very sweet. - 4 pgs., 2/11/99
TRIAL OF XENA WARRIOR PRINCESS (THE) by Onora
Thought-provoking new story that has Xena and Gabrielle spending time with Hercules and Iolus when Athenian soldiers arrive to at last bring the Warrior Princess to justice. It is a development that will test Xena's commitment to justice even as it tests her friends' desperate need to protect her. A gripping story with a very moving depiction of the Xena/Gab relationship and a well-developed supporting cast. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! [unfinished] - 9/3/97.
WATERFALL by Onora
A waterfall and a warrior prove more than enough inspiration for a restless bard in this almost poetic little tale. - 3 pgs., 2/11/99
WHITHER THOUG GOEST by Onora
A very touching, nicely written story based on the Book of Ruth from the Bible that has Xena and Gabrielle meeting Ruth as she travels with her family to the land of their birth. The warrior and bard offer to escort them in a journey which will have the two of them thinking about their friendship...and learning to treasure it even more. - 12 pgs., 2/7/98
