Oh, this one is so good. It’s been years since I’ve read this story, but I still remember it like it was yesterday. This XWP story of LN James is not just 🔥🔥🔥 the characterization of Xena and Gabrielle is so well described too! God, it’s like watching an episode of XWP but then one you’ve always actually wanted to see 😏.
The story begins as it often does: Xena and Gabrielle walk from one place to another and discuss Xena’s claim that no one would ever believe that Xena could be Gabrielle’s slave. Gabrielle bets 5 dinars that she can get people to believe that this ‘big, bad warrior’ is her slave. And there we go. Wow, how Gabrielle gets Xena to do absolutely everything for her is so sexy and romantic, phew! These two remain ‘the mother of all ships’ for me. Although Supercorp comes pretty close 😉.
