Above And Beyond
The story is written in the form of a letter, left behind on Christmas day. And that's all I can say about it, really, without giving away parts of the plot, so you'll just have to read it if you're curious.
Xena and Gab chat about the approaching millennium.
A Day In The Life
The opening scene from 'A Day In The Life' with a Homeric twist.
The Edge Of Nowhere
A Conqueror story with a twist. Three years after the events of Armageddon, Xena has settled down in her role as ruler of the world. The Empire is peaceful and prospering, crime is at an all time low... In other words, the Conqueror is bored out of her mind. Which is why she quickly agrees to personally solve a "minor" problem reported to her by the regent of Macedonia. The minor problem turns out to be a handful however, and the face off sets in motion a cascade reaction of changes.

This story picks up a month after where Edge ended. Everything seems to be working out, between Xena and Gabrielle, between Xena and Iona... But things are never as easy as they seem. And when you're dealing with a confusing relationship that is constantly being attacked, a hormone-ridden teenager with newly discovered godly powers, meddling gods and a new threat coming from overseas.
Eye Of The Needle
A young convict, being transported to Australia by ship, nearly meets her end at the hands of a brutal sailor, but is saved just in time by the dark haired captain of an attacking vessel. A long journey starts for them both as they are tossed between friendship and hatred, while suffering through shipwrecks and seabattles.
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4
This is the sequel to Eye Of The Needle. After three years of sailing the seas, the former Torment of the Southern Seas is called back to Port Jackson to help catch a group of mutineers, heading down the Australian coast. The job seems easy enough but when they do find the mutineering ship, it turns out the situation is a bit more complicated than they'd imagined...
Father Of All Evil
Xena gets called to Macedonia to help out an old friend. This leads to our two heroes getting caught up in one of the biggest wars of Ancient times. Once more they have to face up to a part of their past they'd though was over and done with.

I'll Take The High Road
This humorous story sort of hit me in the face when I got stuck in yet another trafficjam ;) X&G try to get into Athens...
Me, Myself And I
Another bit of humor, Xena gets into a bit of an identity crisis, with some godly assistance...
It's hard to give a short description of this story without giving away parts of the plot. Lemme just stick with saying that: yes, this is another one of those post-FIN tales, but I'd like to think this one is different. This story isn't about getting Xena reheaded (though I'll admit that's what it started out to be right in the beginning). It's about stuff like redemption, true sacrifices and how sometimes little things, insignificant events that will fade and dissapear from the memories of most, can be far more meaningful than grand battles for 40.000 souls. It's about things that I felt FIN didn't deal with properly.
If you're looking for a light read, this ain't it. This story is dark and pretty complex. It's gonna have its comedy moments, but in the end it's gonna deal with some tough issues. You might like it. And you might not. Either way, I'll hope this'll make for an interesting read.
Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5
Gabby elaborates on one of her theories once again...
When Cutting Off A Serpent's Head
Xena gets a summons from an old 'friend' to come and repay her debt. I wrote this for a 'max of five page' story competition by the Dutch Fanclub DAHX.
Xena's Day Off
Gabby decides Xena needs a day off and takes over the warrior's job. Wrote this one for a 'challenge' from the Elysian Bard's mailinglist.
