"(My personal favorite)The companion piece to "Ares' Chosen". It basically tells the story from Ares point of view." -- AdmralCleo

"A vignette with a theory about the beginnings of Ares' love for Xena from Ares' POV."

"Why it's a Favorite: This beautiful, haunting, moving short piece focuses on a theme that has fascinated many Xena/Ares fans -- the paradox of the God of War conquered by love -- with an unusual twist rooted in ancient mythology. Written during Season 3, this story diverges considerably from the "official" storyline of Ares' love for Xena as it developed later on the show. Nonetheless, it gives us a convincing and unforgettable glimpse into the mind of Ares as he wrestles with new and unfamiliar feelings that he cannot quite understand." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

Rated PG-13 

“This story is a sequel to and contains spoilers for THE WIND WILL DO THE REST a story I wrote about the events of September 11, 2001. While it is not necessary to have read WIND to understand this story (WIND is not a POST-FIN Xena episode but a Hercules story relating to the events of September 11, 2001), I think if you haven't read it you would enjoy it. This story also contains references to several of the Xena episodes of the last two seasons.“ -- McJude

3. Tabula Rasa by Taleen

Rated NC-17

"Ares makes a request of Xena that literally takes them to Tartarus and back."

"Why it's a Favorite: As the title suggests, it's a new beginning for the irresistible GOW and the Warrior Princess. Once the emotional barriers are down, they're down, and it's no different for the God of War than anyone else. Combine that with great adventure and steamy sex, and it's a story not to be resisted." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

The Beginning by Tango

Born for War | The Tango Scrawls | Xena/Ares Fan Fiction | Xena & Ares

 

Rated: PG

"This is a Xena "folk tale", not a chronicle of the actual history as presented on the show." -- Tango

"A 'folk tale' about Xena's youth. Guest appearances by everyone from Cyrene to Solan."

"Why it's a Favorite: This well-written tale looks at the birth of the Warrior Princess - the period in Xena's life that seems to be perpetually "ten summers ago" on the show. It stitches together these glimpses of Xena's past to create a new story that is both the same and different. It's engaging, intriguing, and thought provoking." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

"A brooding Ares vents his Xena-related frustrations to the Goddess of Love herself."

"Why it's a Favorite: Whether or not you agree that this is how Ares would think, this story is sure to make you grin with its affectionate sendup of male stereotypes. As you follow the conversation, Sarie makes you feel as if you had the front row seat." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

Bloodlines by Vickey Brickle-Macky

UNFINISHED - Last updated 11/10/2000

"This will eventually be a multiple time line story and is based on ideas from hearing 6th Season Rumors that Ares may be sealed in his tomb as in the Xena Scrolls--since it requires a descendant of Xena to release him and he gets resealed in the tomb, what if there is another bloodline from Xena that no one knows about that can release him coming from Eve prior to meeting Xena? A direct bloodline that is for Ares rather than against him? The early parts of the story area lot Eve and Virgil with little X, A, & G, but that will change in later parts." -- Vickey Brickle-Macky

The action sequences are dramatic and vividly written, and the scenes between Xena and Gabrielle as they face mortal danger are filled with poignant emotion.

"A dare, and too many smores." -- Born for War

"This is an answer to Maureen the Greek Amazon’s third challenge. Xena and Gabrielle had just gotten back from a three day journey across Greece to see if any of Gabs family were still alive. They got there and found Poteidaia had been turned into a giant rubbish tip. Eve had run off somewhere with Virgil due to the fact the author can’t be bothered to write her into the story. All seemed to be going well except for the incessant whining coming from the short blonde Xena had been traveling with for quite a time. The beautiful Warrior woman was wracking her brain for ideas to get rid of Gabrielle." -- Xena & Ares

Maureen the Greek Amazon’s third challenge - Write a Xena story with these requirements:

1)  Must be after 'Motherhood'                        
2)  Must have Hercules & Iolaus in it                        
3)  Must have a Xena/Ares relationship                        
4)  Must contain rancid peanuts

Immortal Understanding by Aurora

Rated G

"This is a sort of 'what if' story, an alternate ending to "You Are There." You should know right now that I wrote this story because when I watched "You Are There," Gabrielle got me so mad when she kept telling Xena not to eat the apple (as if she thinks she should control Xena, or something.) Anyway, Xena puts Gabrielle down pretty hard at the beginning of this story so if you really like Gabrielle, then this may not be a story you want to read. Now, I like Gabrielle, it's just in that episode, she really got me annoyed. Okay, enough talk, now for the summery. When Xena decides to eat the golden apple and become immortal with Ares, it makes Gabrielle very angry and then when Odin captures her, Xena has to decide what is more important to her--immortality with Ares or Gabrielle's life." -- Aurora

Recommended by Delenn -- Born for War

"This is the first book of what is going to be a two-book series, but it is a complete story in its own right. It's my take on Season 5, which aims to preserve all of the important developments in that season, but reshuffles them into a new story."

"Why it's a Favorite: An "alternate season 5," Book II begins with the time period of "Chakram." Tango keeps all the essentials in this one too, but re-mixes, re-matches and adds things that were "left out" or seemingly glossed over in the show. It's a whole new tale that in some ways is more satisfactory than season 5 itself." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

Second Chances by Lady Kate

AresXena.Net | Bonded for Eternity | Born for War | Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

 

"Rated R for fairly graphic and disturbing violence and occasional vulgar language."

"The plot of Second Chances presumes an alternate story line that diverges from the official one somewhere in the last five minutes of the Season 6 Xena, Warrior Princess episode, “Coming Home.” Besides the very different development of the relationship between Xena and Ares, this version has other departures from X:WP “canon”; for instance, Xena’s mother, Cyrene, is still alive when Xena returns to Amphipolis after her 25-year sleep."

"After Ares gives up his godhood for Xena, an unexpected development brings them together--but can their love survive? Told from Gabrielle's POV; alternate storyline from just before the conclusion of Coming Home." -- Bonded for Eternity

"Why it's a Favorite: LadyKate has captured Gabrielle's essence like no one before her. Her portrayal of Xena and Ares' relationship is believable, realistic, powerfully emotional and moving." -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction

Shipper Seasons by The Shipper Staff

"A little bit about this project: in April of 2001, several months before Xena ended, a group of online friends decided to get together and start a new virtual season of XWP once the show wrapped up and the credits rolled for the last time. The plan was to have the focus be on Xena and Ares because we were all shippers and felt that their relationship was not finished during the course of the show and we wanted to take their relationship in the direction that it deserved to be taken in. We also felt that Xena and Gabrielle had more adventures to embark upon and that Xena's death in Jappa was not going to be her final stand. Thus, the Shipper Seasons were born and the Xena/Ares relationship was destined to continue on.

So, for those die-hard shipper fans out there who feel that Xena and Ares were meant for one another and that Xena still had more lives to live despite the way the show ended then this site is just for you! The Shipper Seasons will bring a whole new meaning to shipper fan fiction and will be able to fill that gap that so many of us shippers were left with when the show concluded its run.

So, sit back and relax and journey into the heart of the Shipper Seasons, where the show may have ended but the Xena legacy and more importantly, the undeniable bond between Xena and Ares, lives on!"

"This story was orignally going to be part of Shipper Season Seven but following the tragic passing of Kevin Smith, it no longer seemed fit to air it. So, now it just one of my fanfic pieces and it is dedicated to Kevin Smith who I will always miss greatly. This one's for you, Kevin! This story refers to events that happend in Shipper Season Seven (basiclly, just that Xena is alive again after "A Friend In Need"). During a convention in the 21st century, an electrical short circuit sends the stars of Xena: Warrior Princess into the past and their character counterparts into the future." -- Aurora

"Why it's a Favorite: This story is everything that is good in fan fiction, and then some.

"Why it's a Favorite: So you think you understand what Xena means when she talks about her inner demons? Not until you've read this story. Juxian takes you to a depth of darkness in the human soul so complex, it's frightening. "Together" is definitely a violent, gut wrenching piece; it's also a brilliant piece of writing - so many levels of emotion there and she can make you understand them all. There are no villains in this psychological Hell - just the sheer horror of human suffering." -- Xena/Ares Fan Ficiton

The characters and voices of Xena and Ares, and the dynamics between them, are captured perfectly here; those who have wondered how Xena really feels about Ares may find a convincing answer. Thamiris provides no easy resolution to the complicated relationship between the God of War and the Warrior Princess -- indeed, she leaves the reader unsure just what the "right" resolution would have been. But the twist at the end is likely to leave many readers smiling through tears."  -- Xena/Ares Fan Fiction Library
