TOWARD OUR DISTANT REST by Zuke - [Alt]
Set after the Ring Trilogy, this intriguing hurt/comfort story finds the warrior and bard traveling south through Gaul anxious to get home but having an increasingly difficult time as Gabrielle struggles with nightmares. Soon the nightmares seem to be invading her waking moments as she's beset with vision after vision of blood, death and misery. At a loss, Xena can only offer comfort and encourage her to get sleep certain that the bard's restless nights are playing havoc with her psyche but Gabrielle is not as certain. One particular vision haunts her - calling her to reach across physical boundaries to try to bring peace to a soul in anguish. Zuke offers a very appealing treatment of the Xena/Gab relationship presenting them as devoted, concerned, loving companions. The story unravels at a good pace and draws a poignant connection to a more modern time. A treat for classic XWP fans. - 9 pgs., 5/2002
