"War God Interludes" by D.C. Parker

4. Amphipolis Under Siege [Classic/Gen/Complete]

Her plan got her what she wanted, but after all is said and done, the Warrior Princess can’t help but feel guilty…and decides to do something about it.

Dying of Such Love by M.S. Wilson [Classic/Alt/Complete]

This story is set about a year after A Friend in Need and is about how Gabi brings Xena back from the dead. I don't hate Friend in Need as much as some fans do (technically, it's quite well done and does bring both Xena and Gabi's character arcs to logical conclusions), but I do hate the fact that Xena and Gabi don't get a happy ending ... they certainly earned one. But I read somewhere that the creators were planning on doing a series of Xena movies after the show ended, which must mean they were planning on bringing Xena back somehow. So if the creators were thinking about it, that makes it (almost) Canon as far as I'm concerned. Gabi's mention of going to Egypt made me think of the Egyptian Book of the Dead and how souls/hearts were judged in the afterlife, which I thought would make a great way to bring Xena back.

Santa Claudia 2: New Year's Magic by Norsebard [Original/Alt/Complete]

Happy New Year!  Five days have passed since Claudia MacCready and Elaine Sutcliffe's romantic heart-to-heart at the frozen lake. On New Year's Eve, they go out on a date that'll take them from a cozy dinner café to a tour of the bustling metropolis Carlyle - and ultimately home to Claudia's penthouse apartment for the traditional New Year's fireworks...

Test Day by M.S. Wilson

This story was inspired by Gabi mentioning a "Test Day" in Warrior ... Princess (and by how she assumed Xena was testing her in Warrior ... Priestess ... Tramp). I figure Xena is teaching Gabi her many skills in between episodes and probably tests her periodically to make sure the lessons are getting through. Xena probably throws in surprise Test Days (like pop quizzes) to make sure Gabi's always ready for anything. This story is about a Test Day that goes off the rails a bit; it's set early in the second season (before Return of Callisto), so I feel like Xena is definitely in love with Gabi at this point, but Gabi still hasn't quite figured that out yet.
