Because You Loved Me by Katelin B
This is a sorrowful tale of the aging Amazon Queen saying farewell to her consort. Xena's final words via a scroll got to me. It's beautifully written. Set to the lyrics of the Celine Dion song "Because You Loved Me." Have a box of Kleenex handy.
Back Trouble by Della Street
I love Della Street's work and this little tale is just too cute for words. Poor Xena has hurt her back. Just when she and Gabrielle were finding out what everyone out there in subtext land already knew! She is under orders to stay put in bed by the Amazon healer. Doing this is a tough job - a cute story.
