Death by Tim Wellman

Jane's X:WP Alternative Fan Fiction (Archived) | Tim Wellman (Archived)

". . . heart-wrenching, beautiful story set in the twilight years of the warrior and her bard as their love struggles to transcend even death." -- Lunacy

Death, Resurrection, and Taxes by Trisha Von Doss AKA Xenamour

". . . Set after the duo's fifth season extended "beauty sleep" but thankfully avoiding the twilight of the gods storyline, Trisha's tale finds the warrior and bard facing something even scarier than the wrath of the Olympians - a tax audit. With the potential of a 31 year tax bill in their future, Gabrielle goes to work trying to defend their somewhat unconventional deductions while the warrior spends time placating one cranky bard and uses her own methods for dealing with the dilemma. This is a fun, light-hearted tale with the Xena and Gab that made most of us fans - two very different partners who sometimes drive one another crazy...but wouldn't have it any other way. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

"Contributing to the Greater Good has its down side; After 31 years, plus, (6 + 25 years entombed), of unpaid taxes, the Greek version of the IRS has come looking for the Warrior Princess and her side kick. Xena's filed their first ever Tax Return, with a little help from Salmoneous's kid brother. Now they're being Audited, and it's up to the Bard to sort out their friend's handy work. Justifying their creative accounting recalls some of the funnier moments in their travels. They'd be laughing too... But when an honest man and his family are threatened with foreclosure on their business and home, Xena and Gabrielle become suspicious. Someone's been altering people's tax returns... And cheating the people of Greece out of their hard earned dinars." -- Academy of Bards

". . . a very funny story about one of the only things in life Xena was afraid of: the tax man. In the story, Xena and Gabrielle are being audited, and things don't look so good for our gals. With that twenty-five-year slumber, it seems they haven't filed a joint return in over thirty years. Their dealings with the auditor are laugh out loud funny. The story has some hysterical Itemized Deductions taken from their six years of travels. There's also an action plotline that involves government corruption and the usual band of unwashed thugs. Very funny and very highly recommended." -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

Death Wish by Larry Dudock

Meanwhile, Xena and Gabrielle happen across a mysterious stranger, a woman both are strangely drawn to and who seems capable of looking into the very core of their hearts." -- Lunacy

Athemis uses a beautifully vivid writing style that conveys a lot of emotion.

AusXIP | PDA Fiction

"This story by Bel-Wah focuses on the inner thoughts of Xena and Gabrielle in the hours immediately following the events in "When Fates Collide". It's an insightful, thoughtful exploration of each woman's dreams and emotional fulfillment in both worlds. They each realize that they seemingly had all they ever wanted in their other lives, yet they were both empty and unfulfilled without the other . . . The story reads like poetry. It's beautiful, lyrical, emotional writing that is very highly recommended" -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

Did He Who Made the Lamb Make Thee? by Cheaza

" Gabrielle deals with her guilt after Maternal Instincts. This is a dark gritty piece." -- Athenaeum

". . . Cheaza gives us in this tale an alternate culmination to the rift that does not involve singing, tarot symbols or illusions. Instead we get the stark reality of a friendship in ruins, a heart in pieces and a mind overwhelmed by a guilt so complete that it simply sinks into insanity. This is an utterly dark, gut-wrenching piece featuring descriptions of sexual violence, rough language and containing some REALLY disturbing scenes. Packing an emotional wallop, this hurt/comfort story is *NOT* for everyone but if you have a strong constitution and appreciate angst it is certainly a thought-provoking read that comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

German Version: Verrath's Tür

Double Trouble by The Merpup Collective

". . . mischiveous little tale that has the bard waking up to not one but TWO Warrior Princesses - the result of a misworded request to the goddess Artemis and a bit of meddling from another source.

The Dragon's Child by Domenica

Swollen Bud Award: "The Quickie" / Short Story

"Gabrielle and Xena split up with the bard telling stories and Xena taking on a giant" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"On her own, telling stories at inns, the bard remembers her history with the warrior. Xena, in the meantime, waits to connect with villagers who are threatened by a giant." -- Athenaeum

"A very passionate and very different look at the Xena and Gabrielle relationship as it progresses from the day they first met to the time when having experienced both the happiness of loving one another and the pain of separation, they can finally decide as equals what they each need to feel complete . . ." -- Lunacy

"The bard and the warrior have gone their separate ways. And though Gabrielle reflects privately in her scrolls about her relationship with the warrior, the tales she tells in taverns now focus on... dragons, much to the dismay of those who want stories about Xena kicking butt. "Fool!" spits a barmaid to one drunken complainer. "Every story she tells is about Xena." Domenica artfully encourages readers to explore the evolving relationship of two complex and ever-changing individuals in this sequence of sensuous and compelling vignettes." -- Swollen Buds

"This is an incredible story. Set in the early years of the series, Domenica gives us a very different interpretation of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship. They struggle to define their relationship and separate for a time, but they ultimately realize it’s all about love. Written in a style unlike any other story I’ve read, it’s emotional and powerful with an almost dream-like quality to the writing. This one gets my highest recommendation." -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

The Dreams of Children by TZ

Swollen Bud Award: "All Nighter" / Novel or Novella Length

"The Dreams of Children is a novella set in an alternate Xenaverse setting. In this alternate place, Xena and Gabrielle, as well as a host of other characters from the series, grow up together in the sleepy village of Amphipolis. Xena, with a great desire to be a great warrior, leaves the village in search of her destiny. Gabrielle, through a viciously cruel twist of fate, finds herself trapped in a life she dreaded as a child.

Unable to contain the darkness within, Xena finds herself in trouble and only a powerful ally can save her. Their alliance creates the Destroyer of Nations. For years, Xena lays waste to Greece. Her name is feared and spoken only in hushed tones. Her future seems lost in bloodshed until she remembers the fair, golden bard. Realizing that she was everything Gabrielle would have fought against, she betrays her mentor. Ignoring the price on her head, she makes her way back to Amphipolis in search of forgiveness and love.

Gabrielle, in the meantime, must remain in Amphipolis. Her dreams of travel and adventure are shattered in the course of one violent night. Disowned by her family, she is taken in by Cyrene. At the inn, she falls into the daily routine of helping with the business and telling stories she hears from other bards and travelers.

When their two paths meet once more, Xena and Gabrielle are changed people. Their feelings towards each other, however, remain the same. They discover in each other's arms, the answers to all that they are seeking. However, a jealous and petty god that is determined to keep Xena in his dark embrace will test their love for each other.

Their dreams will seem as distant as the stars they wished upon when they were children. Will their love be strong enough to pull down the heavens?" -- TZ

"The Dreams of Children" is a novella set in an alternate Xenaverse in which Xena and Gabrielle, as well as a host of other characters from the TV series, grow up together in the sleepy village of Amphipolis. In the best traditions of fiction writing, TZ asks "What if?" What if Xena had had the benefit of Gabrielle's goodness before the darkness seduced her? Would Gabrielle have grown up more assured, more self-reliant with Xena as a childhood companion?

TZ weaves the characters of the show -- from Joxer, Callisto, and Autolycus to Meleager, Ephiny, and Toris -- into a tale that entertains even as it offers up insightful interpretations of how these men and women might operate in different circumstances.

The seven-part story takes the reader from Amphipolis, where Gabrielle teaches Xena to believe in herself and encourages her to pursue her dream of becoming a warrior, to the far-off camp in which Xena trains with Master Lao and his wife -- and falls into the clutches of Ares. It returns eventually to Amphipolis and Cyrene's tavern, where Gabrielle and her four-year-old daughter Hope have taken up residence. Xena eventually sees the light and begins to atone for the wrong she's done, but can she get back to her home before Ares destroys it -- and Gabrielle -- in order to punish Xena for her disobedience?" -- Swollen Buds

"Xena feels she has led Gabrielle to her death in the desert." -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"One of the premier talents in the business brings us a terrific new story that finds the warrior and bard desperately trying to survive after pursuing an assassin into the desolate wasteland known as the Sahara. It's an ordeal that will push them to their physical limits even as it draws them closer than ever - moving them toward a deeper understanding of themselves and their relationship. A seemingly simple tale at first, this quickly turns into a complex character piece driven by WordWarior's unique ability to imbue her fiction with meaning and depth. The dialogue in this story is particularly well done - clever and insightful, it both drives the plot and helps to mold the characterizations. A first-class effort by a very skilled storyteller, this one comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

"Two familiar figures trudge across the desert. A dark shape looms in the distance, blocking their path. To the warrior, a formidable, ominous enigma challenging her confidence, mocking her ability to protect her bard. To the bard, a tenuous collection of sand that threatens to stifle her voice, to suffocate the faith that sustains her as well as the warrior. This suspenseful, multi-textured, warmly insightful adventure (presumably post Sin Trade) offers a unique journey through the hearts of this duo and their relationship . . ." -- Athenaeum

"Set immediately after the events in ONE AGAINST AN ARMY, this "first-time" story is an emotional excursion." -- Academy of Bards

"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!" -- Lunacy

Falling by Grit Jahning

Academy of Bards | AusXIP

"Sent on an errand for her mother a fifteen year old Xena comes to Potedeia. And meets a small, blonde girl. Feeling herself pulled towards her in way she can't quite explain. Not knowing the pain Gabrielle has to go through at home she leaves again after a couple of days. But sometimes we're meant to meet and be together. A lesson Xena is about to learn herself. ... But will she accept her destiny? - The story covers nearly fifteen years in the lives of Xena and Gabrielle but I promise it will be finished and it won't be as long as it may sound." -- Academy of Bards

"What if Xena and Gabrielle grew up together?" -- Rocky

"The author claims in the disclaimer that this is almost an uber, but I disagree. This is classic, although it takes place in an alternative universe. Grit Jahning (fast becoming one of my favourite writers) asks what would happen if Xena and Gabrielle had met earlier, and both our heroes had the chance at a more normal life. Adolescent Xena avoids the horrors of the raid by Cortese, and Gabrielle finds a family that loves her for who she is. Normally this would remove much of the depth to Xena's character, but the leads and peripheral roles are so lovingly rendered; Gabrielle's rescue from her brutal home life, Xena's discovery of someone to believe in her are beautifully rendered, that it instead becomes the reader's wish that they might have evaded the standard timeline. But this is also one of the sweetest romances it has been my delight to read. Touching, well written, although sometimes painful as well, this is a feast for the romantic, filled with phrases and scenes that touch the mind and heart with unerring precision." -- Kamouraskan

"Set in an alternate reality, this new story has the Warrior and Bard meeting under different, but strangely familiar circumstances, when a fifteen-year old Xena travels to Poteidaia to purchase supplies for her mother. After nearly running over a young waif, Xena finds herself completely taken by the blonde five-year old. Similarly drawn to her new tall friend, Gabrielle treasures the sense of safety and affection she feels around the older girl. Unbeknownst to Xena, her kindness toward Gabrielle is a rarity in the small Poteidaian's short life - one that will motivate her to run away from her family seeking the new friend whose presence seems to drive all of Gabrielle's fears away. Allowed to remain in Amphipolis with Xena's family for a few moons, Gabrielle will experience happiness for perhaps the first time forging a friendship with her teenage benefactor neither girl will ever forget. In the years to come fate will drive them apart as Gabrielle has to return to her family and Xena pursues a career as a warrior fighting in the Athenian army - but their paths will cross once again in Gabrielle's greatest hour of need, this time cementing their connection into an unbreakable bond that will only grow with time, maturing from friendship into something much more and merging two souls meant to be together no matter what reality they're in . . ." -- Lunacy

A Familiar Affair by OBard

Family Affair by Xero

"A beautiful story about love and family and friends set before the events of the third season which finds Xena and the bard unexpectedly running into Solon who's been visiting a neighboring centaur village. Xena's decision to accompany him back there is one they'll soon regret when the head of that village, a very bitter former enemy of the Warrior Princess jumps at the opportunity to finally bring the Destroyer of Nations to justice. Running against time, Gabrielle and Solon desperately look for a way to help the warrior as the possibility of war looms between two nations and long-held secrets are finally revealed. In her first fanfic offering ever, Xero brings us a tale with all the right ingredients - a hero willing to sacrifice everything for those she loves, a bard whose love and determination know no limits, loyal friends ready for any challenge and a young boy with the courage of his mother and a heart very much like that of the bard he so loves. This story feels like "classic" Xena. It's a thoroughly satisfying tale that will keep you glued to that keyboard 'til the end. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

"Take off of 'Remember Nothing'" -- -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Page

"Xena tries to adjust to her new reality while helping the slave Gabrielle adjust to her freedom after the warrior chooses not to spill blood in the episode "Remember Nothing"." -- Athenaeum

"A thought-provoking what-if story set around the events in the episode REMEMBER NOTHING which assumes that Xena did manage to stop Gabrielle from killing Mezentius at the end of that episode. In this tale, the Warrior Princess remains only a memory in Xena's mind from another life. She is living with her brother in Amphipolis and with them, trying to recover from the years of slavery, is Gabrielle. Tormented by what the young woman has been through and desperately wanting to recapture the bond they once shared in another life, Xena opens her heart to the former slave girl but this Gabrielle is not the same carefree, gentle bard who once chose to share her life with an ex-warlord. The years of abuse have taken a toll possibly hardening a heart beyond even love's ability to reach it." -- Lunacy

A riveting, MASTERFULY crafted tale that recalls a vary dark time in the life of the Warrior Princess. It is a time Xena reluctantly finds herself remembering as she and Gabrielle travel through an area she once destroyed, on their way to a meeting with one of the men who helped her in that campaign.

For All Time by Jamie Boughen

"This is a hurt/comfort tale in the tradition of ALL THRU THE NIGHT. It is also rather original in its approach to the "first time" situation. Tired of being left behind and worried that Xena might be hurt during a mission to stop a ruthless warlord, Gabby decides to follow her never suspecting the cruelty she would soon encounter - cruelty which only together will warrior and bard be able to overcome. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

"In this tale, Xena and Gabrielle stuggle with the same fears about the other until Xena is called to help a nearby town, leaving Gabrielle behind for her own safety. Not one to be left behind, and still struggling with her feelings for the warrior, Gabrielle folows, and is confronted by more than she can handle, and Xena has to come to the rescue once again. What follows is a bitter sweet exploration and recuperation of two souls...perhaps healed and reunited for all time." -- Athenaeum

"Gabrielle tries to bring recluse Xena out at a festival with unexpected consequences." --  Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"This gifted writer brings us a gripping story about choices and consequences that begins innocently enough with a bard and a reluctant warrior on their way to a festival. Proud of Xena and anxious for her to have a good time, Gabrielle pushes the warrior to become more and more involved in the festivities never suspecting what her playful prodding will lead to or the fateful decision she'll soon have to make. Revolving around one of the series' major themes, this tale features a particularly compelling characterization of the bard as she and her soulmate are once again challenged by the darkness in the human heart and the realities of life in a violent world.
