On an idyllic country hillside rests a grandiose cottage - one that tries to kill everyone who tries to spend the night inside. Can Xena and Gabrielle uncover the source of the carnage and put a stop to it?

Dragon in the Mist - Phineas Redux

‘Dragon in the Mist’ is a classic ‘Xena’ tale – Gabrielle meets one of the many Demons which inhabit Japa’s Upper Air; a Lamia-Dragon dwelling on the misty slopes of Mt. Fuji. Xena, on the other hand, is enveloped elsewhere in Japa’s famous social etiquette.

Xandra, Gail and Jonas return for a third round of Halloween zaniness. This year, the young, Xena-worshipping friends trek through a park straight out of the deepest level of Tartarus as they try to help the police find a shoplifter…

Castle of the Damned - Norsebard

For location scout Mattie Eckhardt and her assistant Adam, it was just another job: they were to fly overseas, visit a selection of Gothic castles and assess whether or not any or them would work as a filming location for the remake of a classic horror movie. What they didn't take into account was that in some corners of the world, real horror was never far from the surface - especially not at Lady Constance's Wolfenburg Castle…

Sins of the Past by M.S. Wilson

This is kind of an adaptation of the first episode (Sins of the Past), almost like a novelization (although it's much shorter than a novel ... more like a novella-ization) where I try to get inside the characters' heads and flesh out some of the scenes. I used the dialogue from the episode (and some cut scenes from the shooting script I found over at Whoosh), adding my own interpretation of what the characters might be thinking or feeling throughout the story. I also added some new scenes to fill in some gaps, especially near the end with Xena, Gabrielle, and Cyrene. Sins of the Past is one of my favourite episodes (top five!), so I hope I can do it justice. 

"War God Interludes" by D.C. Parker

Just some little scenes and thoughts that occurred to me while watching the show, that might have happened before, inbetween, or after the named episode. Enjoy!!!

3. Eternal Bonds [Classic/Gen/Complete]

Dear Diary: Live From The Ghouls-Rulz Convention by Norsebard [Original/Alt/Complete]

Visiting a fan con is always a magical experience - the 214th annual Halloween Ghouls-Rulz Worldwide Convention is no exception. Although some of the events described in this report may seem surreal or even grotesque to the uninitiated, most of the things witnessed by the intrepid con-goer J. Ockser will be all too familiar to anyone who's ever been to one of the major cons. As we eagerly await the official 25+2 XWP con, sit back and read about a convention that may seem wildly different at first glance but that really isn't...
