A NEAT LITTLE CAVE
Very sweet, sexy little interlude that has Gabrielle reuniting with her warrior after a short visit to Poteidaia and reluctantly agreeing to go see a new cave the warrior wants to show her - it's a decision she wont regret ;-) A wonderfully romantic treatment of the relationship. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 7 pgs., 6/20/99

Just a little something…

Gabrielle decides she wants to spend a whole day making her warrior VERRRRY happy...and she does ;-) Exhausting little contribution from T. Novan guaranteed to drive that Amazon Ice Co. stock WAY up! An enchanting, sizzling vision of the raw passion between these two. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 11 pgs., 6/26/99
CAT AND MOUSE
Stories like this one make it so easy for fanfic reviewers to stay awake reading at 3:00 am >:) This is a study in seduction as the warrior and bard tease one another mercilessly during a formal celebration and then retire to...er...celebrate privately. Ahem... only problem with reading something like this at 3:00 am is that the Amazon Ice Company is CLOSED!!! A definite MUST READ at whatever time is convenient though - although it's probably not advisable to do so during work hours. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 6 pgs., 3/9/99
FRIENDS, ENEMIES, LOVERS
This is a terrific story which has Callisto snatching Gabrielle away and taking her to a cabin, then inviting Xena.
HENBANE, HORSENAPPINGS & OTHER OBSTACLES w/ T.Novan
This is a fun new story that’s about, well - henbane, horsenappings and other obstacles that Xena and Gabrielle must grapple with as they return to Amphipolis for a much needed vacation. Set after the Season Six episodes “The Return of the Valkyrie”, this is an amusing, tongue-in-cheek look at the events of the last season. I especially loved the Eve and Virgil portrayals here: a preachy, annoyingly earnest Eve and a Virgil who is a lot like his daddy. It’s clever; it’s biting; it’s a whole lot of fun. Definitely recommended.
HOLD ME BY THE FIRE
Very nice tribute to those increasingly romantic campfire scenes that through the years have afforded our two heroines with the perfect opportunities to grow closer. Well-written relationship piece. - 2 pgs., 6/19/00
JUST LOOK AT THEM
T. Novan takes a break from her popular RAISING MELOSA SERIES to share with us a lovely piece about that all-important first kiss set against the background of Amphipolis as warrior and bard visit a certain innkeeper that knows just what is best for her daughter. Heartwarming, feel-good story reminiscent of those earlier seasons. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 4 pgs., 3/9/99
Unusual warlord/slave tale that has Xena and Gabrielle just beginning to explore an exiting new facet to their relationship when an old friend of the warrior's asks for their help in setting up an elaborate ruse to fool a deadly warlord. T. Novan includes an interesting twist in this story with warrior and bard assuming the roles of warlord and slave but...switching those depending on the circumstances. Well-written, passionate story. - 71 pgs., 11/19/98
LET YOUR SPIRIT MOVE ME
The Warrior Princess gets a little mischievous in this cute, sensual new offering set during the events in A TALE OF TWO MUSES. Grin-alert on this one. DO NOT MISS! - 2 pgs., 11/21/98

ROOM AT THE INN
Xena and Gabrielle are visiting Amphipolis and love's in the air ... only the Warrior Princess isn't too keen on it being her mom.
Mischievous new offering about a frustrated warrior, one perfect opportunity, a little snakebite and an invigorating convalescence ;-) A fun "quickie" from one of the masters. - 7 pgs., 6/13/00
TELL ME AGAIN, HOW YOU FELT SOMETHING
In this spicy epilogue to the episode AMPHIPOLIS UNDER SIEGE, the bard wonders just what exactly Ares made Xena "feel" and then decides on some tactics of her own to get the warrior..."feeling" ;-) Playful and reaffirming. - 4 pgs., 2/27/00
T. Novan takes a break from her various ongoing series to bring us a sweet first-time tale that has a couple of Olympian voyeurs watching a certain warrior and bard to determine if the two should at last receive the blessing they've been waiting for before acting on their love. Some rather "convenient" situations help the story along here but this should be a treat for my fellow mush aficionados :) - 7 pgs., 8/30/99
THE IMPORTANCE OF FAMILY
T. Novan shares a beautiful, poignant treatment of the relationship in a wonderful hurt/comfort story that has a worried Gabrielle returning to Poteidaia with an ailing Xena intent on getting help for the warrior there only the reception she gets there isn't quite what the bard hoped for. First-class writing in a tale that solidly reaffirms the commitment between our heroines. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 6 pgs., 6/12/99
http://ausxip.com/fanfiction/i/importance.html - XGF 3 - 11/10/07
THE SOLSTICE GIFT
T. Novan brings us a very sweet little Christmas present in this holiday yarn which has the warrior and bard temporarily separating so Gabrielle can spend some time at home without the conflict which usually erupts when her father sees the ex-warlord - only an unexpected solstice gift changes their plans... Great depiction of the Xena/Gab relationship in a story that will warm that old ticker. DO NOT MISS! - 6 pgs., 12/27/99
http://ausxip.com/fanfiction/s/solsticegift.html - XGF 3 - 25/1/07
YOU'VE GOT SCROLLS w/ Advocate & Fanatic
The warrior and bard get a taste of what millenniums later would become known as "life online" when Gabrielle decides to join a top secret Amazon bards scrolls list and soon finds herself dealing with an endless delivery of new scrolls, huge egos, flame wars, pettiness and a warrior intent on finding out just what is taking her bard away from more...entertaining pursuits. Penned by such an impressive triumvirate, this tale delivers two of the best characterizations of our two heroes I've read in a while with Gabrielle as the sweet bard you do NOT want mad at you and Xena as the barely-in-control lusty warrior you do NOT want to separate from her bard. With a...familiar feel to it despite the ancient setting, this is a comedic delight offering welcome relief from those heavier, grandiose themes the TV series keeps throwing our way. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 46 pgs., 10/23/00

EMPRESS, WARRIOR, WOMAN w/ Murphy
A different twist of "When Fate's Collide."
Every parent's worse nightmare - their child grows up and dates. What happens when Xena and Gabrielle's daughter, the new Queen of the Amazons, falls in love (with a little help from Cupid and a stray arrow)? A rollicking good story ;-)
SOUL SEARCHING w/ Advocate
If you read only one Conqueror story this year - this has to be it. It's one of the best that I've seen deal with the ruler of the Known World. Xena, the Conqueror, is tired and goes out of her palace in search for some peace and quiet. She finds it in a small town of Potadeia where an innkeeper and a young boy capture her heart. I can't say it often enough it's a fantastic read and well worth the time to read this long story. You won't be disappointed.
A STITCH IN TIME
I don't think I have read anything like this before. Gabrielle goes to the future to change the past and alter events. It's a thought provoking short story and VERY well written. I expect nothing less from T. Novan. She always comes up with innovative stories and this is one of them.
WHAT YOU CAN'T SEE...
Xena is invisible and that causes all sorts of problems for the Warrior Princess, Gabrielle and Autolycus. Who did it and why? What will cure it? Three little words are needed. A very amusing short story that will make you go "awwwwww" at th end.
Gabrielle is having a hard time trying to propose marriage to Xena...she gets by with a little help from a friend.
STIRRINGS OF A DARK HEART
It's a piece written from a warrior's point of view as she reflects on how far her traveling companion has come, and just how much she feels for her.
TO LOVE A DARK HEART
This is the sequel to Stirrings Of A Dark Heart. A look at Gabrielle's motivations and desires, and a peek into the warrior-bard's soul. The beginning of the sub-text. Gabrielle is a bard, but she shares her feelings over Xena with us in her scrolls. I suppose this would be early enough in their relationship that neither of them were comfortable in sharing their feelings with each other, but after they've realized they're more than just best friends. This is a deeply felt love, so read on and bear witness to the love for a soul mate.
THE YEARNINGS OF A DARK HEART
This is the sequel to To Love A Dark Heart. One of the few pieces of Xena's writing, it allows us to be privvy to her feelings that she keeps hidden from her traveling partner. This is an accompaniment to TLADH, and the third installment in the trilogy. It's not over yet though.
FAMILY SOLSTICE (A)
An entry in the Christmas challenge.
GABRIELLE, BARD IN BONDAGE
Looking for a X/G Alternative Fan Fiction story with no plot but involves a mixture of love and tenderness with spanking and bondage? Well, here it is. The end of the story answers a question we have all wondered about or, my theory anyway.
Here's another Plot, What Plot? story that picks up where "Gabrielle, Bard In Bondage" left off. There are no other characters in the story except Argo. Xena and Gabrielle don't need anyone else... but you already knew that, didn't you?
A LITTLE PAIN NEVER HURT ANYBODY - (Or A DAY IN THE DUNGEON)
Fated to go into many a readers' "guilty pleasures" file, this little comedy is to say the least - WICKED! - and yes the capital letters are there for a reason ;-) It's just another day for warrior and bard as they help a group of villagers fight a vicious warlord - only it's been a while since they've had some quality time together and things are getting just a tad...frustrating. Then on a successful raid of the warlord's castle while the inspired villagers seek justice, the two are rewarded with just the perfect mother load to relieve all that stress ;-) MAKE SURE to read the disclaimers as this offering will not be for everyone! "Kinky" *is* the operative word but a big old grin will likely be the result. - 14 pgs., 12/1/98

THE WATER'S EDGE
Playful offering set in the fourth season which has the warrior and bard engaging in some distracting water sports under a moonlit sky. Sweet and sexy. - 8 pgs., 2/4/99

Can Xena survive a Bard on the Rampage? Is leather really a summer fabric? And how many personalities can one small Amazon have in the space of a single morning?
Attackers stalk Xena, Gabrielle, and a baby Eve as the family sleeps. Roused by the intruders, the warrior moves to protect her lover and child, transforming the predators into prey. In this thought provoking, very short story, Temora gives us a glimpse at the heavy emotional burdens and well-earned rewards that go along with being a protector in a dangerous world.
THE LADY KNOWS WHEN TO LEAVE
Set during the episode THEM BONES, THEM BONES in that instant in time when Alti was killing Gabrielle, this tale has the bard receiving an unexpected offer that will have her facing her greatest fear. Emotional, well-written character study. - 6 pgs., 3/15/00
http://ausxip.com/fanfiction/l/lady_knows.html - XGF 3 - 28/3/05
THIS IS A FIRST-TIME STORY
A DELIGHTFUL little story not as much about THE first-time but about all the first-times leading up to it as a warrior and a bard realize over time that they touch one another's souls as no one else ever has. Featuring a wisecracking but astute narrator, this is a charming tale about clicking with that special friend and falling in love. A MUST READ! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! - 11 pgs., 5/20/01
YEAH, BUT WITH A REALLY BIG SWORD
Set after the episode GOD FEARING CHILD, this is an exceedingly well-written story and a VERY impressive character study of Gabrielle in particular. The story begins with the bard, Xena and Eve on their way to Poteidaia where Xena hopes to give her partner a chance to spend some time with her family. Feeling at a loss lately, Poteidaia is not actually something Gabrielle is looking forward to. There's an emptiness inside her now, a sense of confusion, an ache in her heart that she cannot shake and cannot quite understand. A worried Xena senses the turmoil in her partner but in a disquieting development realizes that the young woman who once seemed to talk non-stop, now doesn't talk at all. In Poteidaia a beloved face from the past will finally coax Gabrielle out of her silence but another will bring a bitter betrayal forcing the bard to embrace her unsettling new role as warrior in order to protect the family she loves most of all. Temora skillfully uses internal dialogues here to reveal the thoughts of these characters - their fears, their confusion, their anxiety and their vulnerabilities. Both Xena and Gabrielle are painted in a very human light as friends who care for one another deeply but are essentially different, have arrived at the points they are in their lives through very different roads and will struggle differently not only with the physical threats against them but the emotional challenges of the lives they've chosen. This is an insightful, psychological piece with a refreshingly effective treatment of the Xena and Gabrielle we've seen in season five. DO NOT MISS! - 36 pgs., 5/23/00

This is a truly wonderful story...set right after Gabrielle plunges into the lava pit, we are witness to Xena's efforts to get her back, and privy to the God's interference on our duo's behalf. Well-written and thoroughly interesting, I'm sure you won't be disappointed when you finish reading it.

http://www.fortunecity.com/village/villageplace/334/bardly-pursuits.html - XGF 3 - 26/1/06
A delightful collection of story fragments that will have you grinning from ear to ear.

GETTING IT RIGHT
WHEW! TZ is back and she's back with a VENGEANCE! This story is just plain exhausting! 8-| The tale has an exceedingly frustrated bard trying to work off some energy by fantasizing...when suddenly one of those fantasies ROARS to life! Offering some hysterical moments along with some gentler exchanges, this ultimately is one seriously SIZZLING offering that should NOT be tackled without plenty - bucketfuls to be precise - of Amazon Ice on hand ;-) DO NOT MISS! - 14 pgs., 11/13/98

Once again TZ does a nice job of combining passion and emotions into a decidedly satisfying story. Some Amazon Ice might come in handy while tackling this one ;-) - 7 pgs., 7/20/98
THE BIGGEST STEP
Set after the episode FINS, FEMMES AND GEMMES, this is a wicked little exercise in seduction that has the Warrior Princess deciding to take that final step in her relationship with Gabrielle - and discovering a whole new side to the innocent bard.
