                    Conqueror and Amazon Series by Romansilence

1. Conqueror and Amazon: Towards A New Life by romansilence

“This story encompasses all the ingredients for a rousing Conqueror tale: Xena bored out of her mind, and guilt-ridden about her past. Gabrielle, a bard-slave; Cyrene a mother trying to hate her daughter; Toris the brother raising a fair-haired son; and indignant Amazons ruled by Queen Melosa combine to make life very challenging for the Conqueror.” -- RAOB

“Here's a different twist on a Conqueror tale, whereby Xena ends up with the Amazons in a role not usually what you would expect.” -- Athenaeum


2. Conqueror and Amazon: Echoes of Darkness by romansilence

Athenaeum Top 25 #1

“Sequel to Conqueror And Amazon: Towards A New Life. The story picks up one moon after 'Towards A New Life' ended. Add a village full of Centaurs, another bunch of prickly Amazons, Cagnine, Ares, and Cyrene - and you have the ingredients of a very Xena-like story. At least I hope so.”--RAOB


“This is a sequel to 'Conqueror and Amazon: Towards a New Life' and leads our reluctanty heroic ex-Conqueror, her bard, and the Amazons straight to the Centaurs and a whole lot of trouble.” -- Athenaeum

     The Conqueror: Sceptre of Fate Series by Harpy & HkdonXetG

 1. When Destiny Meets Fate by Harpy & HkdonXetG

 “A young farm girl named Gabrielle leaves her village and enlists in the Army of Xena the Conqueror. Xena finds herself captivated by this rather bold and idealistic young woman and offers her a job as her personal assistant. Xena soon realises that Gabrielle possesses an unconventional wisdom and comes to rely upon Gabrielle for advice and friendship as she leads her army in a campaign of conquest. After conquering Athens, Xena becomes Empress of Greece and all of the Greek territories, previously controlled by ruthless warlords and petty kings, are united under her rule. Her ambitions do not stop there. It is Xena's self-proclaimed destiny to rule over a vast empire, and so she looks toward Rome as her next conquest. In the service of the Conqueror, Gabrielle goes from being a naïve village girl to the Empress' most trusted advisor and friend, much to the annoyance of Xena's second-in-command. Through Gabrielle's friendship Xena realises that her quest for personal glory does not have to come at the expense of her personal happiness. Along the way, they realise they were fated to be together.” -- Harpy & HkdonXetG


 2. Harbinger of Fate by Harpy & HkdonXetG

“Gabrielle is no longer a naïve village girl: she is senior advisor to the Empress of Greece with more power and influence to do good than she had ever dreamed possible. Xena is Empress of Greece with ambitions to rule an empire that eclipses even Alexander the Great. Together their mutual attraction has grown into love, but they soon find that being in love is easy compared to building a relationship – especially when Xena insists it must be kept secret.

Having secured the empire of Greece and de facto control of Rome, Xena now set her sights on the Persian Empire to the east with a bold plan to conquer the Anatolia Peninsula in Asia Minor. However, Xena's senior military advisor, General Darnell sees Gabrielle's advice as meddling and the Empress' willingness to go along with her unorthodox idea of a treaty with the Amazons as a sign of weakness.

When the Amazons come to Corinth, Gabrielle has to work hard to keep all parties focussed on the goal: to sign a treaty of cooperation and avoid needless bloodshed. The Amazon Queen, Terreis, seems to be everything Gabrielle admires, and her friendship with Terreis leads Gabrielle to question whether Fate had meant her to be with Xena or follow another warrior.” -- Harpy & HkdonXetG


3. In the Hands of Fate by Harpy & HkdonXetG

"Xena's worst fears have come true and knowledge of her relationship with Gabrielle has made Gabrielle a target for those who oppose the Empress.  Intrigue, betrayal, and conspiracy imperil alliances, friendships, and lives, and no one is above suspicion as Xena uncovers a plot that threatens the stability of her empire.

Will Xena rescue Gabrielle or will Xena be too late to save her?  Will the treaty with the Amazons be ratified or will the Amazon Queen be collateral damage in the growing conspiracy?  Will Xena's plans for conquest be thwarted?  Will Xena and Gabrielle be united in love or will unseen forces jeopardise their happiness and risk the fate of all they hold dear?

A different timeline, a different Xena and Gabrielle--or are they?  Read Sceptre of Fate, Part III and find out in this original and refreshing take on Xena and Gabrielle in the alternate timeline of the Conqueror.” -- Harpy & HkdonXetG

"For those not familiar with this continuing story that started on the Ex-Guards Mail List, this Xena is not the dark ruler from many Conqueror stories, so some will not care for it. It is more the story of that same dark Warrior after she has ruled for twenty years or so. She has come to the point in her life where she is trying to change, for many reasons...enter slave, Gabrielle.” -- RAOB

3. Time's Fell Hand by L.J.Maas

“As always, the Conqueror is rather like having a Bengal tiger for a pet. She has come a long way since meeting Gabrielle, but Xena will never be considered tame, by any means. She has her ferocious moments just as she has the domesticated ones. Lying just beneath the surface of this complicated woman lies the Beast, Ares' curse upon the one-time Warrior Princess.” -- RAOB

Gabrielle and Kyros are on the run, and the Conqueror is launching a campaign against Sparta. Their relationship remains unresolved, but how long will it be until they meet again, and what will happen when they do?" -- thewrook

“Prequel to my AU series. Set before Death of the Conqueror. Describes Caesar's view of what happens the night the news of Cyrene's death reaches the Dark Conqueror's camp.” -- atiaran


2. The Beginning: Death of the Conquero by Atiaran

“This is the prequel fic to my series of AU Gabrielle and Caesar fics, detailing Gabrielle's capture by Xena, Xena's death, and Gabrielle's and Caesar's escape. AU. Not romance.” -- Atiaran


3. Destiny I by Atiaran

“After the death of Xena the Dark Conqueror, Gabrielle and Caesar must try to find a new life for themselves. AU. Not romance.” -- Atiaran


4. Destiny II by Atiaran

“Gabrielle and Caesar try to find their way in the world after the death of Xena the Dark Conqueror.” -- Atiaran


5. All I Have by Atiaran

“A little scrap of a fic I wrote several years ago for background to my Destiny fic series, but recently decided to post in its own right. Caesar observes the Dark Conqueror in the aftermath of her having killed one of her girls.” -- Atiaran


6. Forever by Atiaran

“AU to my Destiny series, detailing what would have happened to Xena and Caesar if the Dark Conqueror had never come across Gabrielle.” -- Atiaran


7. One Night by Atiaran

“This is one of several scraps I wrote several years ago for my "Destiny" series. Originally they were never intended to see the light of day, but when going back through some older files recently I came across them and decided they were worth posting in their own right. This fic is sort of a "one-shot" that describes a single sexual encounter between Gabrielle and Caesar. As my "Destiny" universe finally evolved, I don't consider this fic to be canon; however if it were canon, this fic would have taken place between "Choices" and "Heroes."  -- Atiaran

"Xena has been Conqueror of the Known World, ruler of Greece and the most feared warrior in all the land, for a number of years. Bored with her duties at the keep at Surra, she takes a side trip to the small village of Potidea, where her entire world changes forever. She meets a feisty young village girl—an orphan storyteller with a heart of gold and the courage to stand up to her. The one person in all of Greece who will surely steal the Conqueror's heart and turn her world upside down is the one who will change her utterly and completely.

Gabrielle's life has never been easy. She watched helplessly as her family's livelihood was stolen by raiders and her father disappeared without a trace. After narrowly escaping slavers who took her friends, she and her sister then watched their mother slowly waste away and die. But little did they know the worst was yet to come. One day, their village was visited by the dreaded Conqueror and nothing could prepare them for the changes to come."-- Kennedy Northcutt

                     The Pardoner's Path Series by Enoon Erehwon

1. Well Worn Path by Enoon Erehwon

Academy of Bards | Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | ForevaXena

"Xena is gone leaving Gabrielle behind in emotional ruin. Unable to allow herself to feel the pain of Xena‘s loss, she turns grief to hate and unleashes her fury at anyone or anything that gets in her way. "Gabrielle the Conqueror", as she had come to be known, and having joined forces with Draco, she has known many battles. Yet none have come close to the fierceness of the one that continues to rage in her own soul." -- ForevaXena's FanFic Reviews

2. Bridge of Cinders by Enoon Erehwon

Academy of Bards | Amazon Trails | Athenaeum | ForevaXena

"Gabrielle is on her road to redemption only to be side-tracked when her old tribe take her prisoner. Can she find forgiveness from those she betrayed?" -- Ultimate Xena Fan Fiction Directory

"A sequel to "Well Worn Path", Gabrielle continues her quest for inner peace despite having to come to terms with deeds best left drowning in alcohol. The most difficult is the need to confront her brutal crimes against the Amazon nation. Even Ephiny, once an adored friend, had over the years become one of her countless enemies. But it is with them, as perhaps it was meant to be, that Gabrielle begins her long bloody climb to redemption.

The author’s portrayal of Gabrielle as the "angry ass-kicking warrior" was nothing short of brilliant. We are painted a portrait of a woman whose once gentle soul has been darkened by heart-wrenching grief. Anyone who has been unfortunate enough to have experienced this kind of pain knows full well that grief has a way of making itself heard no matter what attempts are made to silence it." -- ForevaXena's FanFic Reviews

"There´s no happily ever after ending in this one either and like the first, this tale is also graphic." -- Day


3. The Remuneration III by Day

This story depicts the events of the Conqueror´s and Gabrielle´s first meeting, and as you can imagine it isn´t all love, peace and harmony so if you had any difficulties stomaching the two first stories, or didn´t read them at all, you probably should stay away from this one. It´s graphic, but not as much, or at least not quite as much, as the two previous tales." -- Day

                      The Waking Up Series by Candideyes

1. Waking Up With the Conqueror by Candideyes

“After 2500 years searching for the last piece of the Chronos stone Aphrodite finds it in a pawn in Las Vegas, NV. She enlists the help of a lonely lesbian XWP fan Desire' Love to help her go back and correct the terrible mistake in Jappa. Desire' goes to bed one night and wakes up on judgment day in front of the Conqueror wearing only her Xena T-shirt and a smile. Desire' becomes the Conqueror's body slave and must find the stone, open up the heart of the Conqueror and reunite her with her soulmate Gabrielle all without getting herself killed by the temperamental ruler or without getting her heartbroken over a love that can never be hers forever.

There is a bit of erotica in it, both lesbian and straight and a lot of comedy if you can picture the Conqueror doing the Tush Push or learning baseball and football etc. The hero of this story is an XWP fan who eventually gets it right and finds out that she has an ancient soul that is forever connected to Xena and Gabrielle.” -- RAOB

This is the story of Destiny. Find out why she isn't just another villian and learn which hero she is related to.” -- RAOB
