Athenaeum | Lynka

German Translation

"Xena is noticing her partner's recent weariness and contemplating the second chance at life they've been given. Wanting nothing more than to make Gabrielle happy now, the warrior comes to a decision that will change things forever for them just as fate intervenes to remind them of how precious life can be." -- Lunacy 

" The Gods had sent them back for another second chance. Xena wanted to settle down, and have a place that was home - a home for Gabrielle. She wanted to stop the incessant, life threatening trips they had been taking, and to be happy, and for her to be happy, Gabrielle must be at peace. The thoughts had been nagging at her for some time, pretty much every time Gabrielle had been in danger or had been hurt because of her. This was what the Gods would want them to do, to settle down and enjoy life. This second chance was a reward for the pain they had endured. They both had so much to offer. They could certainly continue to give back to the world while they made a life for themselves, together." -- Athenaeum

Aria & Talia by Shadowdancer

Bibliotheca (Home Page) | The SandBox

"This is a story about two Amazons who come to meet Xena and Gabrielle on a day “between” episodes, on one of their “Quiet” days when they aren’t fighting warlords, or bandits or bad guys in general, and are just meandering down the roads of Ancient Greece. We catch up to the two Amazon bond mates who are Queen and First Warrior of their tribe on the day of their children’s birth. This would normally be a very  happy occasion for any family, except an Amazon family. Amazons, at least all that I’ve ever heard about their culture, do not accept males into their tribes, and so the Amazons in my stories also do not accept them. It is the same with this tribe that you are about to read about, thus their predicament.  Aria, the Queen of the tribe, has given birth to triplets, yes, triplets, an extreme rarity but it did occur from time to time, and it did this time. Normally as I said, it would have been a happy event, but Aria’s triplets happened to have been two girls and a boy, and you are about to find out what Aria, and her bond mate and First Warrior, Talia did about the situation, and dealt emotionally with birth of a son into a society that did not accept or welcome males.  Xena and Gabrielle might make a cameo appearance some where about if they happen to be in the area. Enjoy, Hope you like it." -- Shadowdancer

Artemis Complex by JLynn and BM Morgan

"While on the way to the Amazon village for the sacred festival of Brauronia, Xena and Gabrielle encounter several bizarre (and seemingly unrelated) occurrences drawing them into a series of events and comedies of error that may spell the doom of the Amazon Nation and possibly the world.

The goddess Artemis has had the source of her divine powers stolen and, without it, the laws of Nature are spiraling out of control. To make matters worse, the thief is nowhere to be found and time is running out. As they struggle to solve the deepening mystery, Gabrielle and Xena must face armies of slavers, in-fighting Amazons, crazed animals, and most importantly their own divisive struggle when deepening passions and suspicions threaten to tear their friendship apart.

Set in the second season between The Execution and Blind Faith, the story is both a comedic and dramatic race against time, as Gabrielle and Xena struggle to discover the identity of the thief and restore Artemis' belt before the Nation and its goddess are destroyed." -- JLynn and BM Morgan

Academy of Bards | AusXIP | eBooks by Lida | Moonspeaker

"Like many fanfic authors, I've always found Eponin very interesting... probably because RenPics never did get around to building up her character, apparently because the woman who played her disappeared from the acting industry after playing the role. I bet she's running a dojo somewhere, because she sure could do wild things with that staff. Anyway, this story gives a bit of a life story of Eponin, and explains a few details from other stories, although you don't have to read them to understand what's happening in this one." -- Alexiares

Gabrielle knows that Xena will come after her as soon as she recovers consciousness. But will she arrive before the bard succumbs to the torture being inflicted upon her by the embittered townspeople?

The Game by Poto

Tom's Xena Page Editor's Choice Award

"Xena plays a little game with the Amazons." -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"Skillfully written, this post BITTER SUITE tale has Xena and Gabrielle on their way back to the Amazons for the first time since Xena's attack on the village. Nervous at the prospect, the warrior is relieved when they run into a young Amazon from a now disbanded tribe on her way to visit Gabrielle's. Recognizing the young warrior's skills, Xena proposes that they test the security of the Amazon village as a game to hopefully lessen the tension she's certain the Amazons will be feeling around her. It is a game that unfortunately turns deadly when they all fail to realize that others may not be as forgiving as a certain bard from Poteidaia. Poto delivers here a very compelling treatment of situations and feelings that have been woefully ignored by the TV series. The characterizations are solid all around in a storyline already riveting and with the potential to get ever more so. DO NOT MISS! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

Hostage by B.L. Miller

Academy of Bards | AusXIP | B.L. Miller


"Once again the friends are victims of a God's bet when Athena takes away all of Xena's memories of her post-Warlord life which leads the warrior to hold the Amazon Queen for ransom." -- Athenaeum

"Thanks to the petty games of the gods, Xena loses all memory of her time with Gabrielle and believes herself to still be the ruthless "Destroyer of Nations" that once terrorized Greece. Now she has the Queen of the Amazons as a hostage in her bid to rebuild her army. Only Gabrielle's love and bardic tongue can keep Xena alive after the Amazons demand justice." -- Academy of Bards

". . . HOSTAGE . . . is a warlord/slave story with a twist. It begins with a conversation among the gods - a conversation which soon turns hostile resulting in a challenge. Before long Xena and Gabrielle's world is turned upside down as the Warrior Princess finds herself wondering what she is doing in the company of an Amazon, and Gabrielle meets for the first time the warlord who once terrified most of Greece. The ordeal to come will test them both as never before, ultimately providing the opportunity for the love between them to surface... or destroying that love forevermore. Those crazy Amazons are back of course complementing a storyline that is wonderfully clever, shocking, poignant and VERY passionate. This is B.L. at her most entertaining. NOT TO BE MISSED guys! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

This story has the Bard of Potidaea coming into her own as Queen of the Amazons when she has to face a deadly threat to the throne. Aware of the odds at stake, Gabrielle must battle her own fears and an even greater challenge to her resolve - the knowledge that deep inside Xena does not consider her capable of being queen.

"very humorous story of an Amazon and would-be bard who encounters a certain Warrior Princess and Amazon Queen with often hilarious results" -- Pink Rabbit Consortium

"A clumsy Amazon stumbles into Xena and Gabrielle. An funny tale of realizations and introspections as we view Xena and Gab's relationship from an outside perspective." -- Ashera's Archive

"A look at Xena and Gabrielle, from an outsider who isn't carrying a 747 worth of baggage. Weaponmaster Thraso has a quicker mind and wit than most would expect, and some difficulty walking in a straight line without tripping. The trip to her home village leads to some surprising results, and a rousing game of 'Slap Your Neighbour.'" -- Alexiares

2. And It Continued With a Skunk by Alexiares

Academy of Bards | Ashera's Archive | Athenaeum | eBooks by Lida | The Moonspeaker | Pink Rabbit Consortium


"things just get stranger and stranger as goddesses and Xena's mom get involved" -- Pink Rabbit Consortium

Walk a few miles with Thraso and her thoughts as she travels to Amphipolis and Arboria with Eumache, takes part in some strange Amazonian traditions, and plays games with a few choice Gods. Throw in a bit of our favorite Warrior Princess and Bard and WOW!, you have a truly interesting and funny story." -- Ashera's Archive

"Thraso is as hapless as ever, this time travelling with her girlfriend Eumache to Arboria on a diplomatic mission. The little party soon picks up not only Xena and Gabrielle, but also Cyrene with her supply of pastries and mischief.

Rated R

"Eponin and Solari get volunteered to take an invitation to Ankithea, resulting in Thraso and Eumache making a trip to Arboria for the joining ceremony of Regent Ephiny and Callisto. Embarassing predicaments, practical jokes and all out hilarious and improbable situations are just part of the thrill ride here! So, if u are in the mood for a heavy dose of laughter and romance, take a peek at this continually developing escapade…" -- Rachel Hahn

"The first five Parts of this epic of foolish proportions were created - Alexiares and Rachel Hahn. Starting with Rachel's idea that Ephiny and Callisto should be a couple and Eponin and Solari were just made for each other, the craziness starts with an invitation to Thraso and Eumache in their village of Ankitheas to attend the joining of the regent and the reformed Goddess. Artemis, Aphrodite, and at least one Muse are soon cheerfully wreaking havoc behind the scenes while Xena struggles to avoid decorating duty. heck, there's even a bay boom happening in this thing!" -- Academy of Bards

4. A Centaur's Tail by Alexiares

Academy of Bards | Athenaeum | AusXIP | The Moonspeaker

"Life is never dull for the weaponmasters of Ankitheas. Dealing with Eumache's pregnancy and struggling with home improvement projects has Thraso's hands full, a situation Artemis can relate to. An unfortunate argument with Cyrene has led to the home improvement project of all improvement projects in Amphipolis... and their own joining arrangements besides. Throw in a centaur and the remainder of Gabrielle's labours and... ummm... well, the author has no idea, but will keep you posted." -- Alexiares

5. A Very Near Thing by Alexiares


"This story is set a ways into the future, relative to 'A Centaur's Tail.' Learning to get along with Eirthakos isn't so easy. Xena is inclined to cut her newly found sister some slack, but due to a rather unfortunate first meeting, Gabrielle isn't feeling quite as generous. On top of all else, matters with Ares finally come to a head, only to set in motion something much bigger." -- Alexiares

In some ways reminiscent of a Conqueror story (evil Xena does get to play a big role in these), this series delivers good deep characterizations both of X and of G. Also kinda nice to have a G who isn't quite perfect... " -- Anne Vespry
". . . an exceptional new story with a lot of heart that begins with Xena and bard on their way to Amphipolis for a much-deserved rest and what Gabrielle hopes will be a chance for the warrior to touch base with her mother. Before it's over, however, Cyrene not only will have learned more about the daughter she saw become a destroyer of nations, but also about the young bard who loves that warrior now and believes in her above all else. Featuring one of the better characterizations of Xena's mom I've seen in fan fiction as well as solid depictions of our two heroines, this story is deeply rooted in the dynamics of the Xena/Gab relationship. Poignant and heartwarming at the same time, this is a MUST READ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

Furthermore, Velasca is alive and well at the beginning of the trilogy, and not an insane goddess trapped within a hardened lava pool with Callisto. It also introduces some characters from the fourth season H:TLJ episode "Prodigal Sister" because while they weren't known to viewers of the Xenaverse during X:WP's second season, they were known to the Amazons." -- M.
