The Way Series by TZ [Classic/Alt/Complete]

14. The Way of the Queen

After so many years on the road, would Gabrielle be ready for a countrywide war and leading the Amazons nestled within it? Would her relationships help to keep her sanity?

15. The Way of Alliances

Alliances are made to benefit all of the parties involved. Amazons create and maintain them to build strength. Individuals also do the same. Some are suspicious to third parties. Some have a lifetime purpose.

16. The Way of the Elders

Elders have wisdom, experience, advice and humor. For the Amazons, they are powerful members. They are the living, speaking history of the Nation.

17. The Way of Generations

Every decade, the Amazons renew their numbers. Festivals celebrate their accomplishments. This is another Festival of Life, when Amazons meet men to get pregnant and add to their population. Some are chosen and some just sneak off.

18. The Way of the End

Some things just come to an end.

Two gods, two titans and one immortal warrior that lives to protect the Chosen's descendants. She served her alliance for two thousand years, but finally got a reunion with her deepest love.

One Moment of Patience by M.S. Wilson [Classic/Gen/Complete]

In Sins of the Past, Gabrielle's father says the Poteidaians have "heard about" Xena, which suggests she never conquered Poteidaia when she was taking over towns in the area; maybe she didn't see them as a threat, or maybe they voluntarily sent tribute, but she seems to have bypassed them in her march. This story takes place in an alternate history where Xena did conquer Poteidaia, thus meeting Gabrielle ten years earlier. Fans (and the show) have often speculated about what path Xena's life would've taken if she'd met Gabi in her formative years and this is my take on that possibility. There's no hint of romance, since Gabi's just a kid (I figure Gabi's about 9 or 10 years old here and Xena is 17 or 18), but there's definitely a connection between them.

Vacationing on the seaside, Bellamy attempts to balance the affections of the village baker, while struggling to keep her growing infatuation with Appoline, internal and at bay.

Cinco De Die-O

by

Toni Draper

It’s Cinco de Mayo on San Antonio’s famed River Walk, a time of mariachis and margaritas, but when muertos are thrown into the mix, there’s a mystery to be solved–and quick! When newly assigned SAPD Officer Paige Turner (the daughter of a librarian with a bookish sense of humor) shows up looking for answers, it’s bar owner Bobbi Garza she finds, and there is an immediate and irresistible sizzle between the two women causing much more than the comal in the little cantina’s cocina to heat up.
But when a second body appears, and then a third, they begin to wonder WHAT’s happening and WHERE all the people are coming from – and find themselves forced to put their attraction to one another on a low-flamed back burner and team up with a duo of neighboring merchants in an attempt to solve the WHOdunit.
