    Summary

    This is an adaptation of the first episode (Sins of the Past), almost like a novelization (although it's much shorter than a novel ... more like a novella-ization) where I try to get inside the characters' heads and flesh out some of the scenes. I used the dialogue from the episode (and some cut scenes from the shooting script I found over at Whoosh), adding my own interpretation of what the characters might be thinking or feeling throughout the story. I also added some new scenes to fill in some gaps, especially near the end with Xena, Gabrielle, and Cyrene. Sins of the Past is one of my favourite episodes (top five!), so I hope I can do it justice.

    Obviously, none of the characters are mine, they belong to Paramount/Renaissance Films; R.J. Stewart gets credit for the excellent script and Rob Tapert for the story.

    Summary

    Xena and Gabrielle grow up together as best friends until one day Gabrielle's village is attacked by a warlord. Xena tries desperately to protect Gabrielle but ultimately fails. Xena will not stop believing that Gabrielle is alive, and she hunts for her friend. Along Xena's journey, things become darker and lead her farther from Gabrielle and the memories.

    Meanwhile, Gabrielle is taken into slavery but it isn't for some time before her luck comes back. She meets a very caring master, who sends her away to be schooled as a bard. Later, Gabrielle befriends a very unusual girl, and the girl claims to be an Amazon. It isn't long before Gabrielle discovers how real the Amazons are, and that she's fated to be more than just a slave.

    Summary

    For his part, Perdicus laughed when Gabrielle asked if he wanted to go to Poteidaia for the wedding.

    “Where else would we go?” he asked. Again, Gabrielle blushed, and he read her instantly, laughing again, this time with affection plain in his voice. “Same old Gabrielle. We can wait a few days to get home, can’t we? See our families and have them with us? You wouldn’t want us to start our life together on the road, anyway.”

    --

    Gabrielle and Perdicus go home for the wedding. Xena accompanies them. Callisto doesn't show up. Angst ensues. (Return of Callisto AU.)

    “Stop fixating on that woman,” her father had told her gruffly more often than once, which Gabrielle had felt was unfair, because she wasn’t. “And stop listening to the bards. These aren’t just stories. You’ve never lived through war, and I pray to the gods that you don’t.”

    Summary

    Xena is the pureblood slytherin that even Salazar would be wary of. It's been said that she's broken a kid's nose for looking at her funny, she sleeps in the forbidden forest because she feels more at home with the other monsters, the only reason she hadn't been expelled was because all off the other teachers were afraid of her and she might actually be a vampire.

    But all that and a bag of dragons couldn't keep Gabrielle away.
