A Friend In Need: Reimagined by TrueT159 [AFIN/Alt/Complete]

The following story is my attempt to fix the horrible ending to Xena Warrior Princess that was "A FRIEND IN NEED". I'm aware that it's certainly been done before and I'm sure my version won't be the last. But I thought it would be fun to do my own version of how I think things should have gone. Some of the dialog and scenes have been taken directly from the show. While other things have been changed. Besides the crap ending obviously. I feel like that's not really a spoiler saying that a head of time. Otherwise why would I even be writing this since it's the ending that's the problem. Anyway I hope you enjoy my rewrite of the series finale of Xena Warrior Princess, "A FRIEND IN NEED: REIMAGINED"

Molly J. Bragg

When Naomi Woodward’s doctor recommended her for a clinical trial, it seemed like the answer to her prayers. She was finally able to get her gender confirmation surgery and the surgery was a resounding success. She finally looked and felt like the woman she always knew she was.
Her new face and new body finally helped her work up the nerve to ask out Anika, the beautiful nurse that lived across the hall. To her delight Anika said yes, but when they are attacked during their date, Naomi quickly discovers that the experimental procedure she went through had some unexpected side effects, and that when Anika told her things with her family were complicated, she really should have listened.
Now, armed with superpowers she barely understands, a snarky artificial intelligence in her head, and allies that include a Superhero, a Dragon, and the literal Devil, she has to keep Anika safe from the archangel who’s out to kill her while they work desperately to prevent a second civil war in heaven.
