Ares/Xena Stories and Poetry
A Good Turn
The timeline of the show has always been more of a time warp - and why not build on that idea? In the futuristic world of this story, space stations have replaced Greek city-states, rogue warlords still terrorise innocent civilians, and a certain Warrior Princess is still searching for her redemption.
A 'folk tale' about Xena's youth. Guest appearances by everyone from Cyrene to Solan.
The Birds Will Cry
A post-FIN vignette. Gabrielle tries to go home.
Into the Dawn
My take on the S6 episode "You Are There". Love can be returned to the world by restoring Aphrodite to Olympus - but there's a catch.
Learning To Make Fire
A restoration of the cut scene from the end of "Motherhood". Xena and Ares say good-bye.
A short unguided tour of the minds of Ares, Xena and Gabrielle.
After the Apple
After "You Are There", Ares is restored to godhood and Xena returns to the farm -- where it rains. Of course.
An Amazon ritual.
A post-FIN lament from Gabrielle's POV.
Xena's innocent thoughts about Ares when he appears to her in "Chakram".
Or so it seems to me...
Everyone commissioned Sappho’s verses back then! Just check out these.
Ares' thoughts on the beach at the end of "Motherhood".
My very first uber poem. Immortality can be a curse. Years after Xena's death, Ares awaits a miracle.
Xena walks away from Ares at the end of "Coming Home", the sunset lights her hair bronze and she smiles -- are we missing something here?
What is unconditional love? Isn't it loving everything about someone, both darkness and light?
Xena and Ares in that temple in Amphipolis.
Midnight mushiness. Another take on those one-in-a-billion odds (can Xena even count that far?)
Loosely inspired by the ending of the 2004 "Phantom of the Opera" film, which promised a new maturity for Christine and a new morality for Erik. In this very different sort of music on a very different night, Christine does a little hypnotising of her own. Erik/Christine. Set after the events of the movie/musical.
A night in the forest.
Ballad of Azhure
A very old poem based on a scene from "Enchanter" by Sara Douglass (Book 2 of "The Wayfarer Redemption"/"Axis Trilogy").
A tribute to strobe lights.
A tavern song... sort of.
These are my translations of some of the wonderful lyrics from the Russian group "Nautilus Pompilius". Their music is very diverse, from pure rock to orchestral instrumentals, but it's their lyrics that make them unique.
