The Tavernkeeper’s Sister by Ella Quince

I stumbled across this classic Xena/Gabrielle fic while looking through some old recommendations and decided to give it a shot. It packs a nice punch for a short piece and I absolutely enjoyed it.

The openning scene is Xena lighting a funeral pyre for a young woman with reddish-blond hair. Shortly after that, we find our favorite warrior in a tavern and getting the attention of Larissa, the – yep, you guessed it – the tavernkeeper’s sister.

I won’t say more because I don’t want to give anything away. This is a revised version of the story, according to the author, and has a different ending from the original. Not sure what the original ending was, but this one was very good. If you like Xena & Gabrielle stories, you’ll probably really like this one.
