Please make sure to read the EXPLANATORY NOTES before reading these reviews.
UNCHANGING PAST (THE) by Robert Nickerson
This is a new Callisto story that has the deadly blond back again in her mortal body, this time with a promise from the God of War that she will have vengeance against Xena. - 6 gs., 1997
UNDELIVERED MAIL by Kamouraskan
Poignant vignette written in the form of a letter from Lila to Gabrielle that reveals a lot both about the sister that found the courage to seek out her own destiny...and the one that stayed behind. Nicely written. - 2 pgs.
**UNDER THE MOON by Zwolf
In his second piece of fanfic after IN A DEEP SLEEP, Zwolf delivers another masterful horror piece, this one set around Xena's reunion with an old friend - a friend that is more than he seems and who makes the Warrior Princess an offer she's sorely tempted to accept...if only she wasn't committed to solving the series of grisly murders terrifying a small town. Zwolf presents us here with a story that is poignant and scary all at once - eliciting sympathy for characters that at the same time terrify. This is a well-written, intelligent, suspenseful tale that will remind you of some of those classic horror movies of the thirties and forties. DO NOT MISS!! - 33 pgs., 4/97
**UNDERWORLD ADVENTURES by Lara Zielinsky
A companion piece to Lara's GABRIELLE'S CHOICE, this story is set immediately after Xena's death in DESTINY and chronicles the warrior's struggle in the underworld to get back to the world of the living...and the bard who so desperately misses her. Lara presents a very well-thought out and clever explanation behind Xena's eventual return while painting a deeply poignant picture of Gabrielle's pain over her friend's death. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 14 pgs., 1/31/98, re-released 1/5/99
UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN by IseQween
Sweet little story that has a stubborn ten-year old dreamer insisting on helping a wounded dark-haired stranger hiding in some bushes despite the young warrior's reluctance. It's the beginning of an unlikely friendship destined to one day flourish into a bond for all time. Nice sense of nostalgia to this one. - 8 pgs., 8/30/00
VACATION (THE) by Eimajj
A beautiful vignette which has Xena contemplating all the ways in which her life has changed since a certain bard made her way into it. - 3 pgs., 8/23/97
[Palm Pilot version available at XENA FAN FICTION FOR THE PALM PILOT]
VALENTINE'S ENEMY: A VIGNETTE by Arianwen P.F. Everett
Unusual vignette about the God of War which has him taking revenge on one of his sisters after loosing what he treasures the most. Nice blend of fiction with history and tradition. - 2 pgs., 3/18/98
**VALLEY OF REGRET by Wishes - [See the SERPENT/TEMPLE TRILOGY by Wishes]
**VENGEANCE by Tymedancer
This story is the first in an EXCELLENT new series which marks the debut on the Web of a very accomplished storyteller. Tymedancer has chosen with this series to develop the Xena/Gabrielle relationship slowly, exploring each stage in their evolution from friends to lovers. In this initial tale - the two are friends - friends who will be separated by the evil of a heartless warlord and challenged in the worst of ways as one struggles against a promise made long ago while the other fights against fate itself. Exceedingly moving, this story has scenes which merit a multi-hankie alert so have them handy! [Do not miss the sequels JUSTICE and MERCY reviewed in the alternative fan fiction section]. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!! - 28 pgs., 9/8/97
