    Summary

    Gabrielle’s eyes squeeze shut in a silent plea, Sweet Aphrodite, what am I to do? And when they blink slowly open again she sees it on the desk beside her writing box, in a spare ink pot filled hastily with water - a single, unassuming rose. Her fingers are at the stem before she can register what she’s doing, and this time there’s no hesitation.

    Or: what if the playwright Gabrielle kept the rose tossed at her feet by the Empress of Rome?

    Summary

    “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.”

    The rise of the bard Gabrielle, and how she fell in love with a woman while creating a legend around her.

    Summary

    I was watching Xena the other day and thinking about when Xena and Gabrielle's relationship crossed the line from friendship into more than that. This is the result of my musings. A rather sweet story of how friendship can turn into romance. Set in season 5 after episode 2, it's mostly canon but I have taken some liberties regarding Xena and Gabrielle's previous relationships.
