Xena Warrior Princess - The Legend Continues Part 1 and Part 2 by Gabster [Classic/Alt/Incomplete]
This will start right from where the series ended, This story is about how Gabrielle deals with Xena's death and finding out she can bring her back to life. There is a little violence and a beheading of a certain bitch and little bad langue. If that offends you this might not be your story but that was the way life probably was back then. I hope this "reboot" comes if not by my words I certainly hope by some one good words. Let the Greater Good begin.

Dangerous circumstances along the trail cause the women to join forces with another hiker and her dog. The longtime friends and their new companions set off on a daunting trek filled with both menacing and kindhearted survivors.
With evidence of the illness everywhere they go, will this journey bring each of the women the happiness and safety she seeks?

Announcement from The Academy of Bards
Hey authors, writers, bards and storytellers:
Would you like to give your story a certain je ne sais quoi?
(Don't we all?)
Would you like to throw in a few French phrases?
Yeah, me either.
Google Translate is your friend, you say.
Did you know that Google Translate only give you 'literal translations' instead of contextual ones? Thus mangling your intended meaning.
(C'mon, you know that sounds classier than 'OH gosh darn it')
So you say...What can I do OZ?
Have I got a deal for you.
The Academy just received an awesome email from rabid reader Gaby who has offered her services to any author wishing to have help with English to French phrase translations. You can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org
Don't mangle your meaning...get the real deal.
If there is anyone else out there that would like to do the same for any other language, the Academy would gladly post up your contact info.

Flipped - Part 1 and Part 2 by K-Morgan[Original/Alt/Incomplete]
Although I know everyone is waiting for the sequel to Waterville (which will come soon), I've decided to release the attached story as a birthday tribute to a friend. Flipped is a story about a woman and the phone that changed her life. The story was inspired by a friend who had multiple problems with her cell phone and a dare, to my comment, that I could probably write a story about her phone issues.
