because I wrote them quickly and 'on the fly' so I could post
them quicker to the 'Nutforum' back in the day.

story opens with Xena and Gabby whipping along on their horses
in a storm. They got
thunder, lightening, tornados, etc. fast on their heels. They
see a cloaked figure pointing
a way out.
make it to a cave and once inside meet up with Joxer. Seems he
found some three
folks that want to pay tribute to Eve (kinda like the Christ
child - Tapert wants to
piss off all the christians now it seems (VBG).
and Gabby are leery but they don't want to seem too unkind.
When the last gift giver
offers laurel Xena knows something is up. She kicks the gift
away and the gift givers
expose themselves has the warriors of Possidon, Apollo and
and crew take them out but Apollo's henchmen cuts Joxer with a
poison sword. Xena
tells them they have to go to this special tree to get the
antidote so they split up.
Ares reveals himself as the cloaked figure and says he wants
to protect Eve. Xena's not
buying it and tells him to get lost.
and Joxer have a conversation about how he needs to think
before he acts as she
tends to his wounds. Xena nurses Eve and some bad guys show
up. She knocks them
out with diaper pins and dirty diapers. (Yes X:WP has sunken
this low (LOL)). Later
that night Xena has a dream about getting it on with Ares.
Seems the God of War
wants an heir and wants Xena to be the one to give it to him.
Xena wakes up next to
Eve and gives a sigh of relief that it's a dream.
next day on the trail Joxer gets worse and he and Gabby have a
discussion about why
he loves her. Suddenly they are surrounded by Artemis 'amazon'
followers. They tell
them that they are looking for the temple of Artemis. The
priestess sees Joxer's condition
and the duo blame Xena for Joxer's deteriorating state.
for her part is making her way to the tree after throwing the
Gods henchmen off her
trail. She talks to Eve about the dream and we see a few
flashbacks. (Note: Tapert feels
it's appropriate for 2-11 year olds to see Xena get it on with
Ares but God Forbid should
they show Xena and Gabby hold hands - he's such a damn
hypocrite but I guess we
already know that huh? (BG)). Seems the dream isn't sitting
very well with Xena.
get weaker and curls up with Gabby after she fetches some
water. He asks why she
never loved him the way that he loves her. She says she
doesn't understand why people
fall in love with who they fall in love with. She says she
does love him but just as
a dear friend.
makes it to the tree but no Gabby or Joxer. She starts to look
around for them. Gabby
puts a kite in the air to give Xena their location and Xena
makes her way over.
armies of Artemis, Apollo and Possidon start to close in. Xena
and Gabby kick butt and
take a few names. More and more soliders come and Ares stops
tells Xena if she adheres to his request for her to give birth
to his heir he'll take the army
out. Xena refuses telling Ares that he's not a dream but her
battle begins again and of course. Xena and Gabby are
victorious. Joxer gets his antidote
and is soon on the mend.
four of them are walking (well Eve isn't walking yet but you
get the point (BG) ). Joxer
tells Gabby that he'll always love her as more than a friend
and that for him her friendship
is enough. Xena and Gabby talking about finding a better way
to fight the greater
good without harming Eve, but no conclusions are drawn.
was it. The big Ares/Xena sex scene. For all you Ares/Xena
lovers out there I'm sure
you'll get a kick out of next weeks ep. Xena tells Ares she'll
give him 'her sword and
the body that welds it' in exchange for protecting Eve, that
of course is before she drops
the fur that's around her body. It's all I could do to keep
down the pancakes I had
for breakfast (LOL).
on the bright side, Gabby yells 'Charge!!' with what looks
like a group of amazons. Maybe
Gabby should dump the warrior and find a cute, moderately
butch amazon to hang
out with. Now that show could be interesting.
