Verrath

Last Updated:  5/11/2013


The Bet   ebook version available

This was inspired by the infamous "Triple XXX Review", performed by Alexandra Tydings and Claire Stansfield at the 2001 Pasadena Convention. Let's just say that Aphrodite finds herself compelled to seduce a rather unlikely person... Classic Xena, Alt, therefore rated PG13

The Crazed Ramblings Of A Madwoman   [Incomplete]

Part 1  Part 2  Part 3  Part 4 

The Heart Of The Lepoard

The story of an unlikely friendship set amidst the harsh beauty and unforgiving cruelty of the wild jungle. Men have come there intent on hunting for leopards. Raised among those men since she was a kitten, Ginelle is innocent in the ways of the jungle but she senses that they plan on using her as bait to draw in the male leopards nearby and it's a plan she does not want to be a part of. Unbeknownst to the hunters, they are themselves being hunted by a dark, prowling, living nightmare whose hatred of man is perhaps second only to her hatred for the pampered slave cats they keep.

Old Warriors Never Die, They Just... - with Kam and Lariel   ebook version available

These bards all went to Brighton Beach and all you get is a X+G comedy? Definitely 'post fin.'

Opening Up   ebook version available

A VERY short piece about the importance of trust in... certain situations ;-)

The Sad One   ebook version available

Here is my latest completed offering - my own take on the Years After. Like many others, I could not leave the Show the way it ended. It left me wondering how Gabrielle would have fared... here's the result. A tad on the somber side, I might add.

The Warrior, The Witch And The Nightmare   ebook version available

It's Xena, it's ALT, it's PG13 (creep factor!) and it's finished!

Part 1  Part 2  Part 3  Part 4  Part 5 

Tell Me Series   ebook version available

Tell Me, Gabrielle

Man-eating giants and a big siege engine delay two girls on their way to school. Only Xena the mighty Warrior Princess and her mighty steed Argo can save the day (though Argo's wheels do tend to skip and skid on that gravel)!

I'm Bored, Gabrielle

Sina struggles to while away the days until Gabby is ungrounded. This kid just cannot stay out of trouble. And of course, Sina wouldn't be Sina if she didn't find a way to pull little Gabby into it as well.

What's With The Sun?

Sina and Gabby round up all their friends to battle an unseen force that threatens their existence! Will Xena yet again save the world? The premise for that story was taken from a children's tale titled "Someone Is Eating The Sun" by Ruth A. Sonneborn, where a bunch of farm animals experience the same horror. I read that while sorting through some of my old stuff at my parents' house, and found it too cute to pass up. :-)

Pillow Talk

Some serious soul-searching and a pillow fight during a sleep-over at Gabby's.

We Got Him, Gabrielle!

Sleep-Over II - a bad b/w horror movie in the middle of the night has the girls in a stir. Rated PG for messy violence against murdering monster

Summer Slave Camp

Finally! Summer Camp is here! But what would a camp be without proper supervision...? More fun for the kids, in Sina's opinion.

Summer Slave Camp 2: Slave Hunt

A daring team of adventurers sets out to find a hidden treasure, while a miserable little Warrior Princess is toiling in the kitchen. Maybe the scheduled afternoon activities will bring a few surprises.

Flukes, Fauns & Griffins

Who would have thought what weird and wonderful creatures this world holds...?

Battle Kicks

A wise general always keeps to the back of the battlefield - no matter how badly the battle is going...

The New Kid

Summer is taking a new turn as a huge truck unloads furniture down the road from Gabby's house.

Run Alice, Run!

The hidden horrors of a lonely path through the park unexpectedly work in the girls' favor. Rated PG.

A Hard-Headed Hound

Dogs will be dogs, no matter how many heads they have...

Wardrobe Warrior

What happens when a little bard gets way too caught up in a book? What's a warrior to do? And Sina's mom does have this ancient wardrobe sitting in the attic...

A Bowl Of Tsunami

The sea is a formidable opponent. Especially when it's a certain little Warrior Princess who is braving its storms... Rated G. It takes place some time after Wardrobe Warrior.

Remember When, Gabrielle?

An unexpected reunion after many, many years does not turn out the way either Sina or Gabby imagined. Rated PG.

Always, Gabrielle

Lana discovers that it's not always easy to stick to an old childhood promise when Sina disappears, leaving only a cryptic e-mail message.

As The Dragon Flies

Here is the 15th story in the Tell-Me-Series. Xena and Gabrielle realize it is better to let sleeping monsters lie, and more importantly, not to mess with their toys. Sina, however, refuses to learn ANY lesson at all.

A Friend In A Funk

In this latest 'Tellme'-story, we learn what REALLY happened to bring about the Series Ender...

Birthday Bard

It's Gabby's birthday! But what fun is a birthday party when your best buddy cannot be there?
