This final entry in the series recaptures some of the sense of family and that special quality in the Xena/Gabrielle relationship which made them such a threat to their enemies earlier in the story. In the series as a whole Baermer does a very nice job of incorporating the fictional with the actual historical events taking place at the time of the Peloponnesian War.

Xena Multimedia Series CD $20

1. The Sweetest Dreams by L. Graham

"An absolutely DELIGHTFUL story featuring a truly beautiful, tenderly poignant interpretation of the relationship between warrior and bard. Fulfilling an old promise, Xena surprises her best friend with a trip to Thessaloniki to attend the reknown play festival held there every autumn. For the young bard it's a dream come true but for the warrior a nightmare in the making as she anticipates loosing the most precious thing in her life . . . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

It is an enlightening experience for both of them as the warrior gets a glimpse of the life that led Gabrielle to her and the bard, in coming to terms with her past, feels more certain than ever about her choices in the present. L. Graham does a wonderful job here of fleshing out Gabrielle's life in Poteidaia prior to Xena, giving us an insightful look at the experiences that combined to produce the young woman who would change the life of an ex- warlord. Meanwhile, she's also telling Xena's story - showing the insecurities beneath the tough exterior, showing the vulnerabilities that only a bard is ever made privy too - showing how much these two women have come to mean to one another and how devoted they remain in spite of what they've recently survived. This is a story full of heart with outstanding depictions of our two heroines and the very real, solid bond that glues them together. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

As in the earlier stories, L. Graham delivers outstanding characterizations in this, giving us a very human Warrior Princess with doubts, fears, regrets and hopes. Her Gabrielle is equally well done as a devoted, determined, and perceptive young woman who knows what she wants and has the courage to go after it. This is a beautifully executed story about the healing power of love and the peace that comes with listening to one's heart. Including some wonderfully fresh dialogue and some very vivid exchanges, L. Graham's latest is a MUST READ folks! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

The Third Wheel Series by Jenbob

1. The Third Wheel by Jenbob

Cousin Liz | Mega Fan Fiction | PDA Fiction

"A novel from the early days of fanfic, this great classic by Jenbob is a must read. Set in the first years of the series, this story reads like a well-done episode. Xena and Gabrielle help a village that is under attack, and Xena meets up with an old friend. They set about going after the warlord and his men, but things get a bit strained when Gabrielle begins to feel like a third wheel. This story has it all: an interesting plot, great action scenes, layered characters, and best of all - a wonderful depiction of that jealous, uncertain Gabrielle we knew and loved from the early days. Gets my highest recommendation." -- Cee's Fan Fiction Reviews

". . . THE THIRD WHEEL is among the best pieces of fan fiction I have ever read and the first in at least two novels (keep those fingers crossed for MORE >:) that you will *NOT* want to miss. The novel picks up the story of Xena and Gabrielle as they come upon an attack on a small village. It is while fighting the raiders that Xena encounters an old acquaintance - a one-time friend and a former lieutenant in her army who now perhaps has more in common with the Warrior Princess than they ever did before. Rekindling an old friendship, the two are soon making plans to fight the raiders, speaking of times gone by and admitting truths they cannot admit to others - all the while a certain bard is feeling more and more left out and increasingly...jealous. Exceedingly well-written and edited, featuring rich characterizations, and a well-conceived plot full of action, humor, and emotion, this story marks the beginning of one of the most tender, passionate and romantic depictions of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship you will ever encounter in fan fiction. THE THIRD WHEEL simply is a MUST for anyone who enjoys a well told story. It is a DELIGHT to read and carries my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! -- Lunacy

2. A Fine Line by Jenbob

AusXIP | Cousin Liz | Mega Fan Fiction | PDA Fiction

Amazon Ice Award

"Darkness threates to consume Xena after Gabrielle's death" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Page

"Xena collects quite an army as she embarks down the dark path of vengeance pursuing a Warlord whom she blames for the brutal torture and murder of Gabrielle. At times the violence in this story is graphic in the most extreme sense. Please read the authors notes for violent content in this story." -- Athenaeum

". . . The story picks up where THE THIRD WHEEL left off, chronicling Xena and Gabrielle's deepening relationship after their emotional admission of love in the first story. Still physically recovering from the awful beating she received just weeks before, Xena resumes her life on the road with the bard only to suggest soon after that they go visit the Amazons. It will be an opportunity for the two to explore amidst the relative safety of friends, the feelings and passions they have finally allowed into their relationship and for the warrior in particular to try to deal with the reality of a love the likes of which she's never known before. Always in the back of Xena's mind, however, a terrible fear lurks - a fear ironically made worse by accepting the love of the gentle bard, knowing all the while what it would do to her to loose that love and what a fine line indeed there is between the hero Gabrielle loves and the savage warlord who once shed the blood of thousands. With some of the most passionate and MEMORABLE scenes you will ever read, this novel is storytelling at it's absolute BEST . . . One VERY important ,**NOTE** here - this story features EXTREME (and I'm serious here folks) - EXTREME VIOLENCE - including SEXUAL VIOLENCE. Everyone who I know who has read it has been deeply moved by the story AND quite shaken by the violence. The violence is integral to the plot - HOWEVER, it is very much concentrated in one particular section. Although the experience will be different, you CAN skip this specific section and still follow the story without too much difficulty. A FINE LINE is an extraordinary experience folks. It carries my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!!!!" -- Lunacy

Academy of Bards | AusXIP | Cousin Liz | PDA Fiction | Tom's Xena Page


Swollen Bud Award: "Getting Serious" - Drama

Tom's Xena Page Editor's Choice Award

"A classic in its truest sense. This story was first released in 1997 back at the beginning of XWP fanfiction. It still stands as one of the best. Xena and Gabrielle's newly formed bond is tested. A MUST READ and please feed the bard and encourage her to post more!" -- Academy of Bards

"Xena and Gabby are trapped in a cave, and try to while away the hours." -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

". . . features a somewhat chilling characterization of the Warrior Princess. Trapped in a cave after a landslide, Xena and Gabrielle struggle to find a way out but this is just the beginning of a greater struggle as events unleash a darkness that will test both them and the fragile new bond their souls form in that cave. Gabrielle's love and dedication in this tale are deeply moving. A MUST READ which has become a classic of XWP fan fiction! . . . This story carries my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!" -- Lunacy

"Gabrielle teaches Xena "Truth or Dare" after a rockslide traps them in a cave with little hope of escape. The childhood game leads the pair to important discoveries about their feelings for one another, their individual capacities for courage, and their limitations. This proves vital when another slide opens an escape route -- but leaves the Warrior Princess severely injured and facing the possibility of lifelong dependence on the bard. Enter the incomparable Widgie, one of the classic characters of X:WP fan fiction. The big, bossy healer/oracle/cook sets out not only to mend Xena's physical ailments but a few of her emotional ones as well, in a dramatic hurt/comfort tale told with Wordee's characteristic style and comic relief." -- Swollen Buds

"This is the practically textbook perfect Hurt/Comfort story. Gabby is the focus through out and the Truth or Dare game is beautifully woven in. Oddly though, it reads almost like two different stories welded together. All good, just strange. Rating: 8.5 out of 10 Dares" -- Barron Chugg

3. The Empty Heart by Joanna (aka WordWarior)

Academy of Bards | Cousin Liz | PDA Fiction | Tom's Xena Page

"Xena is emotionally decimated by the loss of little Ilsa and trying to deal also with the repercussions of a promise she made to a foreign god. Unbeknownst to the Warrior Princess, the fulfillment of that promise has brought into her life perhaps the deadliest enemy she has ever known. An enemy willing to hide in the shadows watching as Xena looses everything and everyone she's ever cared for." -- Academy of Bards

"After fulfilling her promise to Thor, Xena is so overcome with guilt, regret, and loss that she pushes Gabrielle and their love away, and her heart is filled with emptiness as she runs from her feelings. Only the love of the Warrior and the Bard can heal" -- Athenaeum

". . . a dark tale of guilt, regret and revenge all pitted against the power of love to heal and ultimately overcome. It is a treat from one of the finest talents in Xena fan fiction. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!" -- Lunacy

"A simple game becomes a race with death for the pair" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"Two Princes ask Gabrielle and Xena to head up opposing teams in a game of "Capture the Flag" but there is more planned for the two friends than meets the eye." -- Athenaeum

"This is a follow-up to Ms. Auggie's earlier story WALKING AFTER MIDNIGHT which was one of the entries in the Second Xenite Bard Contest. It is a very different tale which has Xena and Gabrielle agreeing to participate in a seemingly harmless game organized by the two brothers who are princes in the city they are visiting. Releasing some of the tension they've recently been under, the warrior and bard embrace the competition with fervor each determined to win and neither suspecting the game could lead to the greatest loss of all... This story has a subtle quality to it that lends emotional impact to the darker moments and a poignant desperation to the romance. Well done!" -- Lunacy

The Wedding Night Series by Catherine M. Wilson

1. Wedding Night by Catherine M. Wilson

"The aftermath of Gabrielle’s marriage to Perdicus." -- Catherine M. Wilson

"This story deals with the darker passions of the human soul, the attraction that dark side sometimes holds for us and the irony of pain born out of love. It explores from an alternative viewpoint the relationship between Xena and Gabrielle in the days after the deaths of Perdicus and Callisto. This is a very well written and thought out story but it is NOT for everyone. There is sexual violence in it and the themes explored may be disturbing . . ." -- Lunacy

Xenalicious Recommendation

2. Gabrielle’s Answer by Catherine M. Wilson

"Gabrielle’s response to the story told in Wedding Night." -- Catherine M. Wilson

"A deeply psychological look at Gabrielle's thoughts on the events depicted in the story WEDDING NIGHT. This new offering by Kit reveals a passion in Gabrielle for the Warrior Princess that troubles the bard - scares her in fact for it is a feeling she knows will drive her to follow Xena even into darkness. A thought-provoking tale that examines that point when passion, love and need all merge into a soul-consuming reality where nothing else matters." -- Lunacy

The Xena/ Gabrielle Series by Linda Crist (Texbard)

"Begins after "The Ides of March" 4th season cliffhanger and is their ongoing adventures from that point. My Xena/Gabrielle series parts ways with the show after the 4th season. What that means is no pregnant warrior, no Eve, no 25-year ice cave time warp, no twilight of the gods, no new chakram, no angel Callisto, no Japan, no Akehmi, no battlin' bard (although Gab does fight in this series both with staff and with sais, she just isn't the killing machine she became in the 5th season). Cyrene, Toris, Amarice, Eponin, Gab's family, Eli, Hercules, Iolaus, and all the Greek gods are alive. Octavian is still a very young Roman leader. Joxer is dead because he died in my first story. Callisto is in Hell for breaking her deal with the devil to not physically harm Xena during "The Ides of March." I have made Xena's history in the Norse lands a part of her history in the series, but only up to the part where she locked up Grindle, so in this Xenaverse, Grindle is still locked up with the ring." -- Academy of Bards
