Welcome to my collection of things written. It's grown into a sizeable gathering of curious and suspect characters - making mischief, and hopefully, some amusement as well.

Xenalicious' review

And now, for something completely different... kinda.

This is a selection of Xena: Warrior Princess fanfiction, Uber and otherwise, that are kinda quirky and I hope fun (I had fun writing them, so I hope you at least get a chuckle out of it).

Query: What is fanfiction?
Answer: Fiction written by fans of a television show, movie or book, that's based on that content. Sometimes, it's closely related to existing plotlines, sometimes it's loosly based on a thread in a plotline and sometimes - it's got barely anything whatsoever to do with the content at all - hence the Uber genre.

Query: Do I have to have seen or liked the show to enjoy fanfiction?
Answer: In the case of Uber, no, not neccesarily. In general, it wouldn't hurt.

Cooking on High

This is an Uber offering.

A notorious chef is going through a difficult life transition. Things were complicated enough before she was accused of murdering a woman she barely knew. And they're complicated further by a waitress she can't shake, who may be after more than her secret recipes.

Join our uber gals on a race through a small tourist town as they hunt down a killer while being chased by a posse of bad guys. (200+ pages) (Conclusion: 06/07/01)

Hey, Cooking On High got an award from the Lair of the Web Wizards! For outstanding fiction - too cool. Click here to see it. Click here to visit the Web Wizard site.

She encounters several impediments to picking up where she and Gabrielle left off - chief among them, Gabrielle's sword and sais at her neck. Life, it seems to Xena, just gets more interesting all of the time. (60 pages)
