Arena by Sammet
“As Empress of Greece, Xena has a lot on her hands – two wars to fight at the same time, peasants on the verge of revolting and impertinent noblemen constantly trying to outsmart her.

Xena is given a second chance to make up for all the evil she has done, but, the important thing is: The Arch Angel Michael has given Xena 3 life times to find her way. Why three lifetimes? Because Xena asked for that long. This is where the real story comes into play." -- Doria

The spell affects her entire kingdom, turning her soldiers and servants into various animals. Ares tries to reverse Xena's predicament, but can only allow Xena and her kingdom the power of human speech.

Be Careful What You Wish For by Arianwen P. F. Everett
"Ares finds himself in Xena: The Conqueror's universe, a world where force of arms keeps the peace and one warrior queen rules, everything he's always wanted. Unfortunately for him, the old adage 'Be careful what you wish for; you just might get it.' applies to gods, too." -- by Arianwen P.F. Everett
Beware the Conqueror by ArdenTly
A Conqueror poem.
“This is not the same Xena the Conqueror that others have written about. If you are expecting the same old Gabrielle redeems the Conqueror story, this isn't it. If you are expecting the same old Gabrielle and Xena rule together story, this isn't it.” -- Xenafyre

The Children of Ares by Willowluvyr (fixed link 7/22/2011)
“Xena the Conqueror is defeated in a rebellion and imprisoned on Shark Island. Gabrielle, historian, poet, and active participant in the uprising, goes to get information from Xena in order to finish her histories.” -- RAOB
“Gabrielle, is the one-legged Poet of Potidaea; historian, orator, and chronicler for the great Emperor, Alexander. She tells what happened when the war was over, and she left the palace in Corinth, going to Shark Island to speak to Xena in her prison cell, and what transpired thereafter.“ -- Athenaeum
This is definitely not an ordinary Conqueror story. One of the first things that set it apart is the time setting – we see not the world of the cruel conqueror Xena, but the world after her fall from grace. In this world the Destroyer of Nations is captured and imprisoned on
Gabrielle goes to the island prison to interview Xena, hoping to understand the former ruthless leader better, for the sake of history and future generations. On the island she finds something she hadn’t expected – the human being behind the façade of remorseless and cruel warlord. But to get to the real person Xena is, Gabrielle has to overcome her own bitterness towards the Conqueror who ordered her crucified. She also has to stop the abusive and vengeful warden of the prison – Thelassa, whose hopeless crush on the poet makes a surprising turn. -- Maxine Powers
Cover by Calli's Creations
“This is unlike any other Conqueror out there and took two years to make. A wide cast of characters in this unique piece with so many twists and turns it'll make your head spin.” -- RAOB
"Imagine a crossover between "Armageddon Now Part 2" and "When Fates Collide". Now give Gabrielle Xena's past (with a few minor tweaks courtesy of Ares) then send Xena in to restore their timeline and you have this beautifully crafted and surprisingly compelling look at Gabrielle as Conqueror." -- Rio

"Gabrielle's deal with the Fates to bring back her beloved Xena turns Greece on its head. Xena is now the vampiric Conqueror set on destroying Greece with her army of bacchae soldiers and Gabrielle is the only captain in Greece's navy willing to do anything to stop her. Will she succeed? Or will she become Xena's new possession as she is swallowed up by the Conquering Shadows." -- enyo
“Xena the Conqueror encounters Gabrielle of Poteidaea, the leader of the Corinthian Resistance, in Xena's judgment agora. From the first moment, the Conqueror feels there is something different about this rebel, but soon the difference begin to manifest itself in the Conqueror as well.” -- RAOB
“In this alternate timeline, there is no Hercules, but Xena the Conqueror has a soft spot for a blonde bard who dares to speak against her.” -- Athenaeum
Xena the Conqueror sends to the cross another rebel, the leader of the Corinthian Resistance. And then something changes – a vision of two crosses in the snow and a blond woman with beautiful eyes makes her rethink her decision and save the girl. She will soon find that it was the wisest thing she’s done. But will she have enough time to enjoy the bond that is slowly building between her and Gabrielle of Potedaia? (It’s really sad that this story is unfinished – it’s a great read and I’m sure it could be one of the best Conqueror stories out there if it were finished). -- Maxine Powers

Entry in The Academy of Bards 2005 Winter Solstice Challenge - “I Want Candy”
A charming take on Dicken’s amazing novella A Christmas Carol. Xenaverse style! Imagine Scrooge as six foot tall, blue-eyed woman, heading an empire; a tyrant determined to rule with iron fist. She wants all her subjects to pay tribute to her rule, even if it means starvation for them through the winter. And imagine that one of the leaders she demands tribute from is a fair-haired Amazon queen named Gabrielle. Add some ghosts, a future that seems impossible and a decision the Conqueror must make and you have this wonderful Solstice short story to enjoy. -- Maxine Powers
“Dark in both deed and desire, Lord Xena held her empire in a painful grip, determined to have her reign go down in the annals of history as not only the most powerful, but the most fearsome as well. Into her stronghold was brought a young woman naive in the ways of the world but learned in the ways of the heart. Her fierce determination to change the cold and heartless Conqueror would have both women in a battle of wills, pitting both against each other, the truth, and life as they both knew it.” -- RAOB
"Lord Xena is the ultimate ruler of Corinth with a violent reputation. Her life is changed in ways she could never have expected when a young rebel is brought before her in judgment. Having been unable to break the young woman in the harsh confines of her prison the Conqueror decides what the case needs is her own personal touch. What ensues is a battle of wills where there can be only one winner. While this is going on Caesar is setting the stage for a rebellion to take everything Xena owns. Violence, passion, brutality and betray all play major parts in this story. There are scenes of graphic violence and unbridled sexuality." -- Whoosh

[Unfinished - Last updated September 18, 2010]
“Xena is the Conqueror, ruler of the known world. In this story, she gets a new body slave. Go ahead; guess what the slave's name is!” -- Xena's Little Bitch
“The Conqueror has been presented with a gift, a new body slave. Her name is Gabrielle.” -- Athenaeum
This is a short story, bordering on PWP. The Conqueror’s Touch is an erotica-focused tale and because it’s very short and very hot, any extensive summary would be like a giant spoiler. Let’s just mention the unusual use of some palace locations – the training grounds or throne room, for example. Either imagine the rest. Or better yet, read the story. - Maxine Powers
“In this version of the conqueror plot, Gabrielle is an Amazon Princess daughter of Melosa, a traveling bard and a muckraker. Xena is Lord Conqueror she's is a little bit quirky and a lot evil and is enraged by scrolls that rouse the people to rebellion. A light conqueror story.” -- RAOB
Entry in The Academy Halloween Extravaganza 2002 -

Unfinished- Last Updated September 2007
“In the footsteps of the infamous 'Curse of the Conqueror' and the unequalled 'The Conqueror goes Shopping' I offer up 'Curious Whine'. Where the Ruler of all Greece is tall, dark and brooding, and the small blonde one is sneaky.” -- Msprism
"Following the time honored tradition where the Ruler of the Known World is tall, dark and brooding, and the small blond one is sneaky. Gabitina, a new slave to the Imperial Palace has caught the eye of The Conqueror. However, this new handmaiden is none other than the notorious assassin Gabrielle, the Golden Wolf of Potidaea, hired by the local rebel cell to infiltrate the Palace and kill the Empress." -- Athenaeum
“A very funny Conqueror story - yep you heard me. Xena the Conqueror rules all of Greece but is unhappy - she has problems with her love life. So she goes to her mother for advice and gets the cryptic response to "find someone with good oral skills." So Xena takes that advice and being of a literal bent kidnaps her mother's bard, Gabrielle. From there on the reader is taken on a humerous adventure as the couple cope with scheming henchmen, naked amazons, comas and assorted odd adventures. Enginerd creates a wonderfully wacky alternative universe that deftly combines humor and adventure.” -- Athenaeum
“In the Amazon’s scrolls of times gone by. There is a prophecy, a prophecy of a Queen who would raise the Amazons to great heights and even greater glory, and in the interim bring down a great evil. What this evil was it did not say, but it would be an Evil that encompassed the whole world and would bring great death and misery to the globe before it was put to an end. This is the story of that Queen, her name was Gabrielle daughter of Melosa.” -- Sword Master
What if Xena became a conqueror for all the right reasons? Or so she thinks. -- Lori A. Meyers
The Death of Me: A Conqueror's Tale by improbussaga
This story was written by one of our very own members and we were fortunate enough to get a sneak preview here in The Tavern.
"Two years after her crucifixion Gabrielle, the Queen of the Amazons, returns to Corinth to exact her revenge on the Conqueror. Will she be the one to finally destroy the Destroyer of Nations? Or will she finally find the part of herself she didn’t even know she was missing?" -- Enyo
“Xena has conquered Greece and has her sight set on Rome. She meets a slave, Gabrielle, and her world is turned upside down. Please read the disclaimers. It is violent and graphic.” --
Winner in the very First Bard Challenge, "Destiny Conquered" tells the story of the Amazon Queen-turned slave Gabrielle, from the moment she is given as a gift to the Conqueror and is chosen to be her new body slave. While Xena tries to break her new slave, urged by her mentor Ares, she finds out that something stops her from just taking what she wants from the girl. Infuriated, and somehow threatened, Ares comes up with a plan for revenge. Now Xena must ask her former slaves, and Gabrielle, to help her save her son, and perhaps, in the journey – herself. Oh, and one more thing – trust the disclaimers, the story is quite graphic. -- Maxine Powers
“Just a short Xena poem I wrote ages ago. Basically it is an explanation of why she became who she is. Nothing too deep, its mostly a tribute to a great show.” -- Mistress Nyda
The Destroyer of Nations by AngelKim
An alternate reality in which Xena is the insane Warrior Queen of Egypt, and even Ares fears her."Xena will fall milord, it has been foretold by the prophets of Athena, goddess of wisdom, she will not remain in power for much longer, an amazon called Gabrielle will bring her down, and she will fall from power into the arms of Ares."
"Gabrielle was purchased from Sappho the Conqueror.
After two years of searching, the Conqueror has found the leader of the resistance movement. It turns out that finding her and catching her are two different things. In a game of cat and mouse, they both exploit weaknesses in each other's ranks until those weaknesses become threats from within and they must rely on each other for survival. -- Rio

Read on as Gabrielle unknowingly explores the theoretical, psychological, and literal meanings behind Aristotle's four causes.” -- J. Walker
“This is a story about Xena The Conqueror and an alternate ending to the Hercules episode "Armageddon Now, Part 2." It’s a little dark, but not for a Conqueror story; she’s got serious issues but she’s no rapist. It is also a first time story and a bit of a hurt/comfort story. And it’s a romance and an adventure and a cautionary tale and......” -- Xena's Little Bitch

“An AU story, based loosely on 'When Fates Collide.'.” -- RAOB
"One of the few Conqueror stories depicting Gabrielle as a prized Gladiatrix. Bored from the lack of real challenge in her life as Ceaser’s bride-to-be, Xena seeks entertainment in sparring sessions with

“While in Rome to renegotiate a treaty, the Conqueror meets an unusual gladiator.” -- Spyrel
Extremely realistic, graphic and in the same time – touching, this story is a masterpiece in the Conqueror fiction universe.
On a diplomatic trip to Rome Empress Xena meets someone interesting – Gabrielle, a gladiatrix with unusual skills. She decides that she must take the gladiator to Corinth. And that’s when her world turns upside down. While it strays from the average master/slave dynamics, this story shows one of the most complicated and believable relationship between the lead characters.
The Price of Silence is dark (sometimes even brutal), honest and beautifully written. And I highly recommend it.

“I conceived and began writing The War shortly after viewing the original airing of the episode The Price in the spring of 1997. This story explores what might have happened between Xena and Gabrielle if the events of that episode had taken place over a much longer period of time. In this version, Gabrielle does not bring about a turning point to the conflict by running outside and giving water to the enemy wounded. I have never believed that the Horde would have watched a foe pouring an unknown liquid down the throats of their injured comrades without responding by putting an ax in her back. So I have eliminated all references to this action. On a more positive note, in this alternative setting, Gabrielle's Bilious Green Sports Bra <tm> was never invented.” -- Kauri
