After that, ostensibly as a form of revenge for Gabrielle, she proceeds to conspire to strip Ares of his godhood by telling Zeus Ares was plotting to kill him, and to subject the mortal Ares to torture and abuse -- including gang rape by her soldiers and cutting out his tongue -- while continuing to keep him by her side as her slave/lover.

The Best World Possible
(29 July 2002) PG-13. (46kb)
Note: The characters in this story do not belong to me -- big surprise -- they belong to Renaissance Studios. This is actually an attempt to straighten out and explain a situation created by professional writers and producers that made very little sense. I am certainly not going to make money off this story. I have had many, many people help me with this story including Kam, Lady Kate, Fruitbat44, Becky and my husband, Kim. Thanks everyone. Also, dear readers, please remember that the outcome of this story was created by other writers and that in order to create a plot I have had to make some friction between the characters. Please do not take this as a personal dislike for any character or his or her life style. I love them all!

How You Played the Game

Summary: (Andromeda Crossover Series, Part 4) As a god, Ares moves through time and space, as the backstory to his presence in the Andromeda Universe is revealed. The crew of the Andromeda travels to a silver planet where the King (who looks a lot like Tyr's lover) is too possessive of his war minister (who has a strangely familiar alias.) The game is becoming complicated and it is difficult to win if you don't know all the details.
(29 July 2002) NC-17. (14kb)
Note: This is a Post-Fin story based on some comments in the Xena episode You Are There. The characters are not mine belonging either to Renaissance Studios or the public domain. Please note that this story exists in the same universe as my story Old Love, and gives a view from a Shipper Universe. There is one scene, which while not extremely graphic, is not suitable for children -- but then any children reading my stories would be bored long before they come to the sex part.
Summary: Ares negotiates an Post-FIN afterlife for Xena.
Ocean City Memories
(30 August 2002) R for a few bad words. Implied slash. (17kb)

Reflect on the Rising Sun
(29 July 2002) PG. Uber. (11kb)
Note: The characters in this story do not belong to me. Once they belonged to Renaissance Studios but they Renaissance killed off Xena and she reincarnated. Ares is immortal. Their love is eternal -- it just goes through a few rough periods.
Summary: Ares looks back on present lifetime with Xena and prepares to move on.
(15 April 2002) PG-13. (11kb)

Secrets But Not Lies
(29 July 2002) NC-17. (116kb)
Note: This is story set outside the universe of Hercules and Xena as seen in the shows. (If TIIC can do it why can't I.) In this story the warrior Xena came to Thebes and left with Iolaus as in The Warrior Princess (H:TLJ) and then something went wrong, very wrong. The characters in this story (except for Penelope) belong to Renaissance Studios. This story is rated NC-17 for a scene (m/f) smack dab in the middle. It changes everything. I hope you give this story a chance, even if you do not like the pairing, maybe it will surprise you.
Summary: Set in an alternative world where Hercules does not go after Iolaus when he leaves with Xena in The Warrior Princess. Xena is married to Iolaus and their new life presents some challenges.

Testing and Trying
(8 February 2001) Slash. NC-17. Language. Andromeda/Hercules crossover. Ares/Tyr. (22kb)
Summary: (Andromeda Crossover Series, Part 3) A fun romp. Only the smallest hint of a plot keeps it from being pure PWP.
You Have To Die, So You Can Be Reborn
(15 April 2002) NC-17 for f/f and m/f sex. Xena/Gabrielle, Xena/Ares. Plus other crossover characters in Uber setting. (88kb)
Note: This story is the third in a series of post 9/11/2001 fan fiction that began with "The Wind Will Do the Rest" and continued with "Ari's Ashes". The story also makes reference to another of my works "Old Love". The end of this story contains gore and character death; but actually is an uplifting story. I want to thank Lady Kate and Ahary for the help they gave me with Russian words. My language skills are about the same as Grace's. Lady Kate also helped with a second edit of this story, thanks loads.
Summary: Uber characters in present-time Afghani conflict attempt to figure out past and present relationships.

(16 July 2001) R. Um, Gabrielle/Hercules bashing. Ares/Joxer. (200kb)
Note: Thank you Kate, this story would be a real mess if not for you. This is my first Ares/Joxer fic, even though I've been addicted to reading this pairing for over a year. I normally write Sentinel fic, but my focus seems to be expanding of late. All mistakes are mine.
