2000 Muzza Awards: Best Conqueror Story

Athenaeum Fan Favorite in the Category of Xena & Gabrielle

Xippy Award

"For those not familiar with this continuing story that started on the Ex-Guards Mail List, this Xena is not the dark ruler from many Conqueror stories, so some will not care for it. It is more the story of that same dark Warrior after she has ruled for twenty years or so. She has come to the point in her life where she is trying to change, for many reasons...enter slave, Gabrielle.” -- Academy of Bards

"Timid Gabrielle, a slave since she was 10, becomes the 'pick of the litter'. But has Xena, who is trying to change her ways, gotten more than she bargained for?" -- Flat Mountain 

". . . In her mid-forties, L.J.'s Conqueror is a ruler who's now grown weary of the intensity and violence of her younger days. Still a remarkable beauty and still capable of the ruthlessness that carved out her empire, Xena is nevertheless now a warrior in transition - a woman who's learned that no amount of conquest or riches will fill the emptiness within. It is with little enthusiasm then that she prepares to inspect the batch of slaves offered by one of her governors, knowing she must choose one as the customary gift she usually accepts but now seldom uses...only this time a pair of frightened green eyes literally takes her breath away, awakening a compassion and protectiveness within the Conqueror she hasn't felt in years. In the days and weeks to come the feared Empress will find herself going out of her way to avoid frightening her young slave. Struggling against her own rougher edges and the pitiful submissiveness that has allowed Gabrielle of Poteidaia to survive years of servitude, Xena will work to return the dignity long stolen from the young woman, discovering in the process that the heart of a slave may just be the greatest treasure she ever wins . . . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

"In this Conqueror series, the Conqueror is an older woman in her mid-forties. Over the years she has grown weary and has slowly begun to change her ways. She has even switched allegiance from Ares to the more thoughtful warrior Athena. She receives a young slave Gabrielle who becomes her body slave. This Gabrielle is different from most other Gabs. She is a very submissive slave, not the young rebel or sassy young slave we see in other Conqueror stories. The relationship soon becomes more for each of them, but both women must make significant changes if they are to have a trusting, loving relationship." --  Cee's FanFic Review

“The Lord Conqueror's new slave, a submissive and frightened young woman, holds the power to change Xena, if only she can muster the spirit.” -- Academy of Bards

". . . begins with the Lord Conqueror looking forward to the marriage that will turn her one-time slave Gabrielle into Queen of the Empire. It's a joyful time for the two as they get more comfortable in their relationship and as the young woman who stole the Conqueror's heart tries to put her past behind her to embrace her new role in Xena's life and the realm. One challenge immediately presents itself, however, when a visitor from the Centaur nation arrives - a very angry young man with a secret connection to the Conqueror and an attitude that could get him in more trouble than he could ever imagine. In the weeks ahead, Xena and Gabrielle will have to deal not only with this visitor but with a long-time presence in the Conqueror's life - a darkness which still resides within the warrior and which only the gentle emotions stirred by her betrothed seem capable of mitigating . . . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

Athenaeum Fan Favorite in the Category of Xena & Gabrielle

“As always, the Conqueror is rather like having a Bengal tiger for a pet. She has come a long way since meeting Gabrielle, but Xena will never be considered tame, by any means. She has her ferocious moments just as she has the domesticated ones. Lying just beneath the surface of this complicated woman lies the Beast, Ares' curse upon the one-time Warrior Princess.” -- Academy of Bards

". . . the Conqueror and her beloved new wife prepare to go on a tour of the empire. With a deeper level of trust between them than ever before, the two will share painful memories as Gabrielle reveals a devastating secret and Xena recalls the events that led to her embracing a life of violence. Together the two will work toward healing those old wounds as they set off toward their childhood homes and Amazonia where a former slave will officially become queen of the Amazons . . . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

“This story encompasses all the ingredients for a rousing Conqueror tale: Xena bored out of her mind, and guilt-ridden about her past. Gabrielle, a bard-slave; Cyrene a mother trying to hate her daughter; Toris the brother raising a fair-haired son; and indignant Amazons ruled by Queen Melosa combine to make life very challenging for the Conqueror.” -- Academy of Bards

The Conqueror: Sceptre of Fate Series by Harpy & HkdonXetG

1. When Destiny Meets Fate by Harpy & HkdonXetG

Academy of Bards | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction | Sense for Synchronicity | The Story Lounge

"A young farm girl named Gabrielle leaves her village and enlists in the Army of Xena the Conqueror. Xena finds herself captivated by this rather bold and idealistic young woman and offers her a job as her personal assistant. Xena soon realises that Gabrielle possesses an unconventional wisdom and comes to rely upon Gabrielle for advice and friendship as she leads her army in a campaign of conquest. After conquering Athens, Xena becomes Empress of Greece and all of the Greek territories, previously controlled by ruthless warlords and petty kings, are united under her rule. Her ambitions do not stop there. It is Xena's self-proclaimed destiny to rule over a vast empire, and so she looks toward Rome as her next conquest. In the service of the Conqueror, Gabrielle goes from being a naïve village girl to the Empress' most trusted advisor and friend, much to the annoyance of Xena's second-in-command. Through Gabrielle's friendship Xena realises that her quest for personal glory does not have to come at the expense of her personal happiness. Along the way, they realise they were fated to be together.” -- Harpy & HkdonXet

2. Harbinger of Fate by Harpy & HkdonXetG

Academy of Bards | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction | The Story Lounge 

“Gabrielle is no longer a naïve village girl: she is senior advisor to the Empress of Greece with more power and influence to do good than she had ever dreamed possible. Xena is Empress of Greece with ambitions to rule an empire that eclipses even Alexander the Great. Together their mutual attraction has grown into love, but they soon find that being in love is easy compared to building a relationship – especially when Xena insists it must be kept secret.

Having secured the empire of Greece and de facto control of Rome, Xena now set her sights on the Persian Empire to the east with a bold plan to conquer the Anatolia Peninsula in Asia Minor. However, Xena's senior military advisor, General Darnell sees Gabrielle's advice as meddling and the Empress' willingness to go along with her unorthodox idea of a treaty with the Amazons as a sign of weakness.

When the Amazons come to Corinth, Gabrielle has to work hard to keep all parties focussed on the goal: to sign a treaty of cooperation and avoid needless bloodshed. The Amazon Queen, Terreis, seems to be everything Gabrielle admires, and her friendship with Terreis leads Gabrielle to question whether Fate had meant her to be with Xena or follow another warrior.” -- Harpy & HkdonXetG

"Will Gabrielle be able to bring about social reforms and secure a treaty with the Amazons, or will political rivals thwart her efforts? Will Xena be able to stay focused on her plans for conquering Asia Minor, or will her relationship with Gabrielle prove to be too much of a distraction? Will their love be strong enough to navigate the treacherous waters of political intrigue, personal relationships, and potential enemies" -- Academy of Bards

The Embrace Series by C.J. Wells

Swollen Buds Award: Constant Arousal / Series 

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. So also is cruelty, kindness, domination, submission, hate, and love... In this compelling and often graphically violent set of tales, Wells presents two views of events as they unfold; that of Gabrielle, a body slave, and the other of Xena the Conqueror, her master for the past five years. Xena has been brutal in the bedroom and in the world outside the palace walls. But the story is more complicated than it appears, as is frequently the case. Somewhere along the line, the control slipped from Xena's hands and love conquered the Conqueror, a circumstance that is initially as painful and devastating to her as any wound or defeat. Her slow return to humanity, aided by a caring and forgiving soul, makes excellent reading, as does Gabrielle's growth as an independent woman with a mind, and will, of her own. We look forward to future stories in this on-going series, including more about the intriguing Bahri, Gabrielle's bodyguard and friend." -- Swollen Buds

1. The Embrace by C.J. Wells

Cousin Liz | Bibliotheca (Home Page) 

“The Conqueror lets her slave visit her parents for her sister's funeral. Told from Gabrielle's point of view.” -- The Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"These two Conqueror tales [The Embrace and Freedom] recount the same story, told first from Gabrielle's point of view and later Xena's. It's a compelling story, at times troubling, at times deeply poignant, of two very different souls drawn together and yet kept apart by the insecurities and fears and harshness learned in a world where the struggle for survival can harden one's heart and the quest for power can require one's humanity in tribute. As the story begins, Gabrielle has been living in the Conqueror's castle for a while now, suffering mistreatment, abuse and humiliation in a situation growing more puzzling by the day. Resigned to her life as the Conqueror's slave, Gabrielle has learned to deal with the mistreatment. What is more confusing are her feelings for the Conqueror and the Conqueror's own mystifying behavior toward her - showing gentleness one moment and brutality the next, at times revealing vulnerability only to erase that in an instant with the Destroyer's traditional mask of coldness. What the young slave doesn't suspect is the tumultuous battle raging within the Conqueror's soul as Gabrielle's gentle presence is slowly tearing down walls put there by an indomitable will long determined to hurt and destroy others before they could get past those walls. It's a battle for the heart of a woman who long ago forgot how to love - a battle for the soul of a Conqueror immersed in darkness, responding despite itself to a spirit whose nobility even darkness cannot dim . . .

If . . . This Had Been the Beginning Series by Planet-Solin

1. If . . . This Had Been the Beginning by Planet-Solin

Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction

“In this Conqueror tale, Artemis and Aphodite are out to teach Ares a thing or two when Xena the Conqueror meets the Bard of Potadeia under unusual circumstaces, and this begins changes that will affect the known world.” -- Athenaeum

"Angered that Ares keeps encouraging his Chosen to invade Amazon territory, Artemis seeks Aphrodite's help in stopping the Conqueror" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Index What's New June 6, 2000

". . . Gabrielle is a traveling bard who tells stories to the Conqueror's Army in exchange for a travel pass. In a chance meeting that was arranged by the Gods, Gabrielle is saved from an attack by bandits by a woman she later discovers is the Conqueror. Over the course of the three stories, Xena battles the Horde; Gabrielle returns to her village and face with the consequences of her association with the despised Conqueror; and they both must deal with those ever-pesky Amazons . . . highly recommended." -- Cee's FanFic Review

"Nothing satisfies that fanfic addiction quite like a good Conqueror tale and guys - this one is FABULOUS! In a departure from the more traditional Conqueror tales which usually have Xena and Gabrielle in an adversarial role following the canon established by the ARMAGEDDON Hercules episode that introduced this alternate reality, Planet-solin's story has the two becoming unlikely friends early on. An independent young woman determined to make her own way in the world, Gabrielle has cultivated a strong reputation as a talented storyteller traveling the countryside and earning the respect even of the Conqueror's own troops. Despite the relative peace the Conqueror's rule has enforced, however, life on the road can be a very dangerous place as the bard comes to learn one fateful day when she draws the attention of several ruffians. To her great relief, a stranger saves the day - a tall, beautiful warrior with eyes like blue steel whom Gabrielle is immediately drawn to and with whom she soon finds herself sharing frank opinions about the ruler of the land and the state of affairs in the Conqueror's realm. Having saved the girl while on her way to visit some of her troops, the Conqueror is both intrigued and unsettled by the young bard, knowing she should be outraged by some of the things Gabrielle is saying but feeling instead utterly charmed and surprisingly challenged by the insightful arguments. Reluctant to see any harm come to the young woman the Conqueror shadows her as Gabrielle goes on her way but in the days and weeks to come their paths will cross again as they continue to seek one another out - sensing a connection that transcends the impossibilities of a friendship between them and drawing the attention of those waiting to exploit whatever vulnerability surfaces in the life of the feared Destroyer of Nations. Planet-solin has drawn here two of the most compelling characterizations of Xena and Gabrielle in the alternate Conqueror time line I've ever come across. The Conqueror here is not a monster. She's an incredibly focused, driven warrior who's survived and built an empire by cultivating a fearsome reputation but underneath that cold exterior remains a yearning for the one thing power and wealth and victory have never brought her - a true friend. Gabrielle is an independent spirit with uncanny insight despite her innocence and an admirable drive to pursue her dreams no matter the odds. The relationship these two nurture is electric and sweet, funny and poignant, passionate and decidedly romantic. The first part of a planned trilogy, this tale establishes an engrossing premise guaranteed to keep you reading 'til the WEEEEEE hours if you start it late so plan accordingly :) A MUST READ, this gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

Ralst Recommendation

2. Home Again by Planet Solin

Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction

“This continues from "If This had Been the Beginning...' and finds Gabrielle more embroilled in the gods' intrigue as she visits Potadeia and then ends up with the Amazons. Xena is finding it hard to see past what the circumstances reveal and what her heart is telling her as she goes after her.” -- Athenaeum

"The SPECTACULAR sequel to IF...THIS HAD BEEN THE BEGINNING picks up the story where the first one left off, with the Conqueror on her way to fight the Horde forces in the North, while back in Corinth Gabrielle spends time learning about her partner's government. These are lessons that will serve her well in the weeks ahead when, too lonely to stay in the palace without the Empress, she decides to pay a visit to Poteidaia. The fateful trip will unleash a series of events that will have the young bard making a heartbreaking choice between her past and her present and will have her embarking on a new adventure into Amazon territory where a new future awaits her. Meanwhile, Xena will be tying up several loose ends, dealing with enemies both outside and within her empire, all the while looking forward to a reunion with her bard. When ultimately that reunion is delayed, it is a VERY determined Conqueror who will go looking for the blonde storyteller, intent on destroying whoever has kept Gabrielle from her and about to realize just how much trouble the young woman can get into . . . This story DEFINITELY proves that sequels CAN be every bit as good as the original stories they're based on. Put it at the top of your MUST READ list folks - it gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

3. Surrender by Planet-Solin

Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction

". . . this third tale finds a reluctant Conqueror and a reluctant Amazon Nation in the unlikely position of having to bargain with one another all thanks to the efforts of one...little bard ;-) No longer capable of denying her growing feelings for Gabrielle of Poteidaia, Xena is willing to make a truce with the race of warrior women, and with the bard-turned-Queen who thanks to some incredible circumstances now leads them. Having done away with some of the intrigue and conspiracies among her own troops, however, the Conqueror will now have to deal with a similar situation among the Amazons, for not all within the Nation look kindly on the new queen or the idea of peace with the Conqueror. Anxious to resume their relationship, the Empress and bard will first have to address a deadly threat to that peace and to their own happiness - a threat which may require something from Xena she's never given before and is not sure she can give. The Xena/Gab relationship here is increasingly charming with the two expressing fears and getting past those, no longer caring about previous roadblocks in their way, growing more confident about themselves and what they feel for one another. Planet-solin never depicts those changes as weaknesses but rather as strengths allowing these two women to better deal with the many challenges in their lives and to gain a new perspective on the greater good they're fighting for. A page-turner if I've ever seen one, this story keeps you riveted to the screen and looking forward to more from this gifted writer. Yet another for my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION list!" -- Lunacy

4. The Promise of Tomorrow by Planet-Solin

Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction

"One of the fandom's finest Conqueror series continues with this sequel to Planet-solin's SURRENDER which finds the feared Empress of Greece and her Amazon bard on the field during the final days of a fierce campaign again the Roman armies of Julius Caesar. It's a battle made easier on Xena's soul by the presence of the young woman who has come to mean everything to her. Together for a year now, the two have discovered in one another a love, a passion, a sense of trust and completeness neither has ever known before. That happiness will be tested in the months to come as insecurities plague the warrior who wants nothing more than to give Gabrielle everything in the world...but knows she can't quite do that. On her end, Gabrielle will have to deal with her emerging role as Amazon Queen and consort to the Conqueror, as well as with some powerful figures from Xena's past once again targeting the beautiful Empress of Greece. All the while, immortal hands are setting in motion plans of their own for warrior and bard - one based in darkness, the other in love - and both as equally capable of destroying them . . . The plot itself is INCREDIBLY compelling in that it is developing as an alternate version of the "rift" we saw in the TV series , , , this is one for the MUST READ list guys. It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

5. Family by Planet-Solin

Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | PDA Fiction

". . . This fifth installment in the series finds the two on their way to Poteidaia where Xena is going to leave the bard to celebrate her sister's wedding while she goes searching for her lost son. The journey starts off through the streets of Corinth where the innocent bard accepts a gift seemingly offered in gratitude. Unbeknownst to her or her fierce protector, there are forces at work all around them threatening the fragile happiness warrior and bard have found. In the days to come the Conqueror will fight a frantic battle to save the woman that has come to mean more to her than her very empire but the biggest battle of all will be with her own fears and doubts as she's forced to make a choice between accepting the impossible...or loosing the other half of her soul. Planet-solin has taken her two protagonists on a journey from being strangers in that first novel to what has become one of the most tender, moving and passionate interpretations of the Conqueror/bard pairing in XWP fanfic. It makes it even more poignant when this fifth adventure has them experiencing what is essentially an alternate version of the rift. Dahak, Ares, Callisto, Krafstar and other familiar faces are all cleverly incorporated in a plot designed to challenge the love between warrior and bard. The result is a tale with many of the same riveting elements the TV arc gave us but which honors the integrity of the characters and ultimately delivers a much more satisfying resolution. Make place for this one right at the top of your MUST READ list. It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

My Lord Conqueror Series by Kennedy Northcutt

1. My Lord Conqueror: Changes by Kennedy Northcutt

"Xena has been Conqueror of the Known World, ruler of Greece and the most feared warrior in all the land, for a number of years. Bored with her duties at the keep at Surra, she takes a side trip to the small village of Potidea, where her entire world changes forever. She meets a feisty young village girl—an orphan storyteller with a heart of gold and the courage to stand up to her. The one person in all of Greece who will surely steal the Conqueror's heart and turn her world upside down is the one who will change her utterly and completely.

Gabrielle's life has never been easy. She watched helplessly as her family's livelihood was stolen by raiders and her father disappeared without a trace. After narrowly escaping slavers who took her friends, she and her sister then watched their mother slowly waste away and die. But little did they know the worst was yet to come. One day, their village was visited by the dreaded Conqueror and nothing could prepare them for the changes to come."-- Kennedy Northcutt

2. My Lord Conqueror: Taking Chances by Kennedy Northcutt

"Xena is no longer Conqueror of the Known World, ruler of Greece or the most feared warrior in the land. After a sound defeat at the hands of Romans and a former ally, as well as a heart-wrenching betrayal by her own brother, Xena is regrouping and preparing to retake Greece and restore her reputation. With the help of a certain green-eyed Amazon queen and her retinue, Xena embarks on a journey to once again conquer the Known World." -- Kennedy Northcutt

"Set on invading the Amazons, the Conqueror is intrigued by their offer of peace. She travels to their village for a meeting with the queen, but things don't go according to plan once she meets Queen Gabrielle. What surprises and life changing events will the negotiations hold.” -- Athenaeum

"In this Conqueror story by Gin, Gabrielle is Queen of the Amazons. The Conqueror is perched on the edge of Amazon territory. She's ready to invade, but she is invited to negotiate with the Amazon Queen. Gin blends some TV series elements with her own interpretation of the Conqueror timeline, including a very interesting appearance by Solan. The story contains some references to a Word Warrior story, The Babysitter, that provides insight into both characters' backgrounds (Fanfic based on other fanfic - you gotta love that). Like other stories, this Conqueror has her life turned around by love, but we are given a much more nuanced interpretation of how it happens. A nicely written story that is highly recommended." -- Cee's FanFic Review

"Gin takes some liberties with the story as presented in that episode, creating a world in which Xena has not yet conquered all though she's well on her way. Still to be vanquished is the proud Amazon Nation. Standing between the Conqueror and that particular prize is a Poteidaian turned Queen who having been rescued from slavers by the Amazon a few years back, now rules the Nation with a fierce protectiveness. To the amazement of her Amazon sisters, the young queen chooses not to fight the Destroyer of Nations but to reach out to her. It is a desperate gamble but one which Gabrielle must take, knowing as ruler just how deadly the Conqueror can be but remembering a five-year old who once saw a very different side of the Warrior Princess." -- Lunacy

"Xena is gone leaving Gabrielle behind in emotional ruin. Unable to allow herself to feel the pain of Xena‘s loss, she turns grief to hate and unleashes her fury at anyone or anything that gets in her way. "Gabrielle the Conqueror", as she had come to be known, and having joined forces with Draco, she has known many battles. Yet none have come close to the fierceness of the one that continues to rage in her own soul." -- ForevaXena's FanFic Reviews

2. Bridge of Cinders by Enoon Erehwon 

Academy of Bards | Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | ForevaXena 

"Gabrielle is on her road to redemption only to be side-tracked when her old tribe take her prisoner. Can she find forgiveness from those she betrayed?" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"A sequel to "Well Worn Path", Gabrielle continues her quest for inner peace despite having to come to terms with deeds best left drowning in alcohol. The most difficult is the need to confront her brutal crimes against the Amazon nation. Even Ephiny, once an adored friend, had over the years become one of her countless enemies. But it is with them, as perhaps it was meant to be, that Gabrielle begins her long bloody climb to redemption.

The author’s portrayal of Gabrielle as the "angry ass-kicking warrior" was nothing short of brilliant. We are painted a portrait of a woman whose once gentle soul has been darkened by heart-wrenching grief. Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to have experienced this kind of pain knows full well that grief has a way of making itself heard no matter what attempts are made to silence it." -- ForevaXena's FanFic Reviews

Muzza Award - Best Conqueror Story 

Gabrielle is an insurrectionist who survives being captured and hung on a cross only to end up as a personal attendant for Xena The Conqueror. *recommended by Absinthe*”  -- The Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

". . . this is a FANTASTIC story. Wonderful writing and a believable story involving the Conqueror and Gabrielle. This Gabrielle, crucified and broken by the conqueror, returns to debate Xena who decides to take her on as her truthsayer or Oracle. This isn't a reward, it's a threat for if Gabrielle lies to the Conqueror, she dies. There's another story here involving Caesar and a battle, and the Amazons. There's intrigue, romance, and perfect characterization." -- leavethesky

". . . An effective, albeit ruthless ruler who is bored by the tedium of ruling an empire, Xena agrees to a contest in which entrants must give a definition of truth. Risking exposure, Gabrielle, who has already been crucified and survived, offers the statement that 'the truth is dangerous to the one who denies it.' A furious Xena decides to accept the implicit challenge, making Gabrielle her oracle, one charged with telling the truth or facing death. The young woman shows Xena that truth has more than one face, and, in so doing, earns the respect of the Conqueror and her entourage. This, together, with a fateful visit to theTemple of Artemis puts her in position to play a pivotal role in both the Amazon Empire and Xena's." -- Swollen Buds

2. The Hanging Gardens by XWP Fanatic

Academy of Bards | AusXIP: Part 1  Part 2  Part 3 | AusXIP Rocket EBook Corner | PDA Fiction

Muzza Award - Best Conqueror Story 

“In this sequel to *Aftermath*, the conqueror is invited to Babylon, but so is Caesar.” -- The Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

". . . this sequel continues the story of Xena the Conqueror and her lovely consort, Gabrielle, Queen of the Amazons as they travel to exotic Babylon home of one of the wonders of the Ancient World, the majestic Hanging Gardens. There to celebrate the anniversary of King Nebuharin's reign, Conqueror and queen begin to suspect the intentions of the crafty Babylonian ruler the minute they spot a Roman flag among the ships in the harbor. Joining the other rulers also invited to the festivities they soon learn of Nebuharin's plans for the historic gathering - only there are other plans afoot as well...ones which may endanger the Conqueror, her queen and the still fragile happiness they have found together. Fanatic continues here the very solid characterizations she established in the first story as she develops the relationship between a very dangerous, very driven, very smart Conqueror who is nevertheless pitifully ignorant when it comes to affairs of the heart, and a stubborn Amazon queen with a gentle soul, a wisdom that is often beyond her years and a keen understanding of those affairs of the heart. Establishing in the first few chapters what promises to be one heck of murder mystery, this tale surrounds the Xena/Gab romance with a terrific sense of suspense and intrigue. A MUST READ that comes VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!" -- Lunacy

3. The Unconquered Sun by XWP Fanatic

Academy of Bards | AusXIP | AusXIP Rocket EBook Corner | PDA Fiction

"The first ever Conqueror Solstice tale and the third entry in the SEVEN WONDERS SERIES, XWPFanatic's latest is a very timely read that has Gabrielle convincing her beloved Conqueror to reinstate the festival season. With things going well in the empire, Xena orders a series of celebrations, loving the sparkle of excitement in the eyes of her Amazon Queen and willing to endure even the more stifling traditions just so everything is as perfect as possible. It's a time that will reawaken feelings of home and family for them both but one which will also remind them of their duties to Greece and the ever-present dangers always lurking close-at-hand . . A MUST for that Solstice reading list - HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

The Storyteller Series by Katrina

1. The Storyteller by Katrina

BearBlue's Blue Haven | PDA Fiction

According to angharad governal, of the Annals of the Conqueror, this is the Xenaverse's first Conqueror story.

"Gabrielle tames Xena the Conquerer" -- Athenaeum

". . . this fantastic new warlord/slave story is a powerful, intense, emotional piece that has the young agitator Gabrielle surviving the ordeal Empress Xena condemned her to on a cross. It is while suffering the pain of that torture that Gabrielle gains a sudden insight into how she may be able to change the ruthless empress - not by inciting the people against her, but by inciting a revolution in the woman's own heart. Determined to try even if it leads to her death, Gabrielle returns to the castle where the now crippled agitator turns storyteller and is soon telling her one-time enemy tales of heroes, of fighting for the greater good, and of a love that would change the world. Katrina's characterizations in this are beautifully multi-layered, presenting a Xena with all the power in the world and an aching emptiness within while her Gabrielle, despite a poignant outer frailty, is a storyteller of gentle heroism and steely determination . . . this receives my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" -- Lunacy

Ralst Recommendation

2. The Healer by Katrina

UNFINISHED - Last updated May 7, 2000

"Set some months after STORYTELLER, this new tale finds the world marveling at the subtle changes that have taken place in the realm of Xena the Conqueror as the Empress has embraced a new way of governing, a new way of dealing with her subjects. Though at times still swift and merciless, the Destroyer of Nations is also now surprisingly just - more mindful of her human resources and less ready to resort to plain cruelty. It's a change attributed in part to the crippled scribe who's become a constant presence by the ruler's side - a change welcomed by many and despised by others - a change which has exacted a toll of its own on the once heartless Conqueror for in opening herself to the love of the young woman she once sought to kill Xena has now rediscovered a long-buried heart, making herself vulnerable in the process. Fighting outside forces and inner turmoil, the Conqueror will take them on a journey to see an old friend, on a quest for redemption and healing that may prove to be the greatest challenge yet for the fierce Warrior Queen as she endeavors to heal those scars that can be seen...and the deeper ones that cannot . . . VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" -- Lunacy

The Waking Up Series by Candideyes

1. Waking Up With the Conqueror by Candideyes

Academy of Bards | eBooks by Lida | Heartbrkn's Place

“After 2500 years searching for the last piece of the Chronos stone Aphrodite finds it in a pawn in Las Vegas, NV. She enlists the help of a lonely lesbian XWP fan Desire' Love to help her go back and correct the terrible mistake in Jappa. Desire' goes to bed one night and wakes up on judgment day in front of the Conqueror wearing only her Xena T-shirt and a smile. Desire' becomes the Conqueror's body slave and must find the stone, open up the heart of the Conqueror and reunite her with her soulmate Gabrielle all without getting herself killed by the temperamental ruler or without getting her heartbroken over a love that can never be hers forever.

There is a bit of erotica in it, both lesbian and straight and a lot of comedy if you can picture the Conqueror doing the Tush Push or learning baseball and football etc. The hero of this story is an XWP fan who eventually gets it right and finds out that she has an ancient soul that is forever connected to Xena and Gabrielle.” -- Academy of Bards
