Conqueror Stories. Conquer Me, Baby. As most of you already know, the Conqueror character came from an episode of Hercules with an alternate timeline plot. In the alternate universe, Hercules was never born and therefore was not around to "unchain" Xena's heart. She became an evil figure known as the Conqueror. Iolas had to find the Chronos Stone in order to go back in time and make certain that Hercules was born.

He ultimately stole the Chronos Stone from the Conqueror and restored the timeline. In the Hercules episode Gabrielle made a brief appearance as a prisoner who was found guilty of encouraging rebellion and ordered crucified by the Conqueror. Many fanfic writers have latched onto the Conqueror character and written stories about Xena conqueror stories. However, rather than follow the Hercules story, many writers use the Conqueror name to explore the larger idea of warlord Xena and how Gabrielle might have been able to "save" her. I'll be honest here, I personally do not like a lot of conqueror fic because of the way Xena usually treats Gabrielle at the beginning of most stories.

If the Conqueror beats, rapes and humiliates Gabrielle, I have a hard time accepting any so-called loving, equal relationship that develops from that kind of beginning. Any stories I've reviewed present a Conqueror who has not abused Gabrielle, or they are written so well that they successfully overcome the abusive beginning relationship hurdle.

Some of the best writers in the Xenaverse have taken up the gauntlet and written Conqueror stories. These are my favorites:. The woman can flat out write. Only a really good writer can create a Conqueror story that stays true to the series story and makes it believable to me.

In Aftermath, Gabrielle has been crucified but has survived. She enters the Conqueror's contest to define what truth is and is selected to be the Conqueror's Oracle of Truth. She is allowed to live so long as she always tells the truth. Gabrielle accompanies the Conqueror to the Temple of Artemis, where they run into Amazons, Caesar's army, and a few other surprises.

Fanatic deftly blends elements from the Hercules story with those from the early years of the series. The story is very well crafted, with an intricate plot full of twists and turns and lots of action and suspense. It stands alone but is also the first in an unfinished series of stories of the Seven Wonders of the World. Aftermath stays true to the storyline laid out in the original Hercules episode AND presents a believable relationship story of understanding and, eventually, love.

This one gets my highest recommendation. You betcha. It's written in screenplay format.

In the story, Xena the Conqueror Xena conqueror stories her noon crucifixion, who is none other than Gabrielle, the Rouser of Rabble. Trust me on this one. It's funny. It's tongue in cheek. It's also very highly recommended. Gabrielle is a one-legged poet who lost her limb after she was crucified by the Conqueror. Seven years later, the Conqueror is defeated by Alexander and put into prison on Shark Island. Gabrielle goes to speak with her to record her history. She finds a woman who is receiving the punishment everyone thought she deserves, but facing the human being behind the evil isn't as easy as Gabrielle thought it would be.

Xena also has her own demons to fight. Even if Gabrielle can forgive her, can anyone else, and can Xena ever forgive herself? The story gives us a close examination of the ideas of redemption, forgiveness, and how we deal with the aftermath of evil acts.

It's a fascinating character study that is very highly recommended. In the original Hercules story, the Chronos stone is responsible for the creation of the Conqueror. With enemies lurking behind every corner, she must figure out who and where she is, as well as figure Xena conqueror stories a way to get home. She seeks out the Amazons guess who is the Queen? The story is filled with familiar supporting characters from the series. There's lots of action as suspense in the well-crafted plot. The story would have worked well as an actual Xena episode.

It stays true to the series' style of storytelling. It's a Conqueror story without the presence of Xena the Evil Conqueror! An imaginative story idea that is well executed. Gets my highest recommendation. The Conqueror usually commits such horrible acts against Gabrielle, that I have a hard time buying the transition from victim to lover. This story by Linda Crist is different. Rather than giving us a conqueror who is a heartless monster, we have a woman who is tired of being the Conqueror; a woman who is no longer satisfied with meaningless military conquest. More importantly, we see that this woman is as much a slave to Ares as her subjects are to the conqueror.

And, for once, most of Gabrielle's mistreatment is not at the hands of Xena. The story has familiar characters and relationships from the series that are cleverly incorporated into the alternate reality Xenaverse. The author also gives us a literary three-pronged attack: we get a fully developed relationship between Xena and Gabrielle; we have a believable character arc from hardened Conqueror to compassionate leader; and we get a suspenseful plot that includes a vengeful god, crazy Callisto, a kidnapping, and Amazons!

What more could you ask for? Xena conqueror stories entertaining read that is highly recommended. In the story, Gabrielle from the 'real' timeline wakes up in an alternate reality that has been created by Callisto. She is plotting against the Conqueror, but working as her right hand.

A Priest of the Fates tells Gabrielle she must set things right or all of civilization will be lost in the Conqueror's upcoming war with Caesar. She must find a way to restore the Hercules timeline, but Callisto will be able to recognize her and the threat she poses to her plans. She must also figure out how to get into the Conqueror's camp without getting killed. It's a compelling story idea, and Sword'n'Quill doesn't disappoint in Xena conqueror stories execution.

The Xena and Gabrielle characters are wonderfully drawn. This is not a Conqueror who is on the brink of change, just needing a little push in the right direction. She is mistrustful of Gabrielle's motives and still rules with a cruel hand. It's one of the best depictions of a truly dark Xena you'll find. Yet the relationship story is still believable and loving. As an extra bonus, she also does an excellent job with Callisto.

It's a real winner of a story and gets my highest recommendation. In Planet-Solin's Conqueror Xenaverse, Gabrielle is a traveling bard who tells stories to the Conqueror's Army in exchange for a travel pass. In a chance meeting that was arranged by the Gods, Gabrielle is saved from an attack by bandits by a woman she later discovers is the Conqueror. Over the course of the three stories, Xena battles the Horde; Gabrielle returns to her village and face with the consequences of her association with the despised Conqueror; and they both must deal with those ever-pesky Amazons. Slight CEA. The three stories combined are highly recommended.

Over the years she has grown weary and has slowly begun to change her ways. She has even switched allegiance from Ares to the more thoughtful warrior Athena. She receives a young slave Gabrielle who becomes her body slave. This Gabrielle is different from most other Gabs. She is a very submissive slave, not the young rebel or sassy young slave we see in other Conqueror stories. The relationship soon becomes more for each of them, but both women must make ificant changes if they are to have a trusting, loving relationship.

Journey's End is a well-written, character-driven story that is very highly recommended. When Ephiny is captured, Gabrielle offers to trade herself for her release. She uses her captivity as a chance to convince the Conqueror to change her ways. Like the back-story from the series, this Xena has suffered the loss of M'Lila and a betrayal by Caesar.

That betrayal and loss have shaped her worldview and hardened her heart. Storm gives us a more deeply psychological examination of the Conqueror in this story - the forces that helped create her and what she needs to find within herself in order to change. It's a well-written, enjoyable story that is highly recommended. The Conqueror is perched on the edge of Amazon territory. She's ready to invade, but she is invited to negotiate with the Amazon Queen. Gin blends some TV series elements with her own interpretation of the Conqueror timeline, including a very interesting appearance by Solan.

The story contains some references to a Word Warrior story, The Babysitter, that provides insight into both characters' backgrounds Fanfic based on other fanfic - you gotta love that. Like other stories, this Conqueror has her life turned around by love, but we are given a much more nuanced interpretation of how it happens. A nicely written story that is highly recommended. When the story opens, Gabrielle is in the Conqueror's jail.

She is a scribe of the Resistance movement. To ease her boredom, the Conqueror spends time with the brash prisoner. Over time, they develop a friendship and then something more. The relationship dynamic in this story is interesting because it explores the negative consequences each woman experiences as a result of their growing friendship.

Della gives us characters who each Xena conqueror stories something to lose if they are to try to live together as partners. Like all Della Street stories, this one is very well written, and it's very highly recommended.
