|Reviews for Gabrielle, Queen of the Amazons|
| FroilanBard chapter 3 . 6/19/2011
I've always liked Ephiny and how much she's grown to care for Gabrielle (in the series and stories I've read). You've got her downpat methinks :D And yes for more amazons!

Great first chapter, this one! I'm glad you chose to delve deeper into Velasca's villainy. Indeed, she is quite the underrated one, isn't she. Great definition, too, in her resentment towards Gabrielle's coronation.
Be posting more reviews as I read :D

Hey. I really don't review very often because I don't usually know what to say other than I almost always like them. Same with yours. I really enjoyed what you did with this story and how it was written usung what had happened and then changed by just that one event. So overall it was good.

You seem to have a good idea going on here. I like the fact that Gabrielle has to go out on her own and is forced to grow as a character. It's always interesting to a alternate way for with out Xena. Even though I'm a firm believer that they belong together... it's still interesting to play with the different possibilities.
I do, however find your work to be difficult to read. You jump around from one section to another with out connecting the two parts. Sometimes it is confusing to figure out what is going on next. Take your time when you write and don't be afraid of detail. Detail is good. Try not to tell the reader what they are seeing, but rather show it to them.
For example. "Velasca's party composed of six well armed Amazon. Three with Staffs and three with Swords plus herself." Maybe try something like.
Velasca and her six cohorts prepared to attack. Three of them wielded staffs while the other three preferred the cold steel of a sword.
That gives more a picture.
Also be careful in your editing process. You often miss adding things like a 's' or capitalize when you shouldn't. I find with my own work that if you read it out loud to yourself it may help you catch some of the mistakes.
I hope this is helpful to you.

Great ending to a great story, I guess all things do have a way off working out in the end. Looking forward to more stories from you :D

Wow wicked face off between Zeus and Dahak, I like your take on that in. Its such a surprise to Xena and Gabrielle back together the question is which path will she take now bring Xena back and stay with her or Iolaus?
| HAZMOT chapter 35 . 1/27/2010
I knew it, I knew somewhere there had to be and end for Gabrielle so that Xena would carry on in her stead. I really wanted to see how Ares would carry on at taunting Gabrielle and siding against his own family on Olympus. Gabrielle was the ultimate hero and the change of course to Dahak was a surprise I think even to his end that Gabrielle would be the one to defeat him in the end. In truth, I wanted Xena to appear and help save the day, but after seeing where you going with the intent of Gabrielle saving the day, Xena was not needed to change the course of time. So as far as I see this was a great insight to Gabrielle spirit and destiny put to the ultimate test and it was a great ride. :D

Ok, Velasca was definitely a nemisis that Gabrielle didn't need. The bad old Dragon is dead, but at the price of Ioalus's life. To bad, yet I beleive his death will not be in vain. If Hades has a plan before Olympus falls, then the question is will Xena be a part of that plan? Or will Gabrielle, Ephiny and Janelle pay the ultimate price also to stop Dahak, Peace and Ares? If Olympus falls, will the Elishan fields also fall? Who or what could possibly stop this evil god if even the Olympian Gods could not stop him? I'm waiting. hehehe :D

Glad to see that Gabrielle is really getting eveything back together I just hope she has a happy ending and defeats Dahak.
| HAZMOT chapter 32 . 1/25/2010
Well looks like Ares has turned coat tail and ran to the other side. It's funny how the turn of events were noticed by Hades, but his inevitable death stops him from doing anything to help change the future. He must see he was going to die anyway and Dahak would only be pleased to be the only ruling factor. Gabrielle and Ioalus must knwo already they are dead from how Gabrielle speaks. Ioalus has enough sense to know, that fighting to destroy Dakok will not bring and end their grief or sorrow. It's only natural to find solace in each other and who's left to care about. Either Ares will interfere enough out of respect for Xena or Gabrielle's future in this twisted future will be their end. :D

This was a tough one to read. Especially knowing how much Ceaser and Valesca wanted to conquer Gabrielle and her Amazons, along with the Centaurs. Truly this was a bloody battle and there was no mercy given. Gabrielle has lost more than just the battle, but her family and friends. With this massacre set in motion then Ceaser thinking his world has finally come to pass. To bad he was not so forthright to see that you never turn your back on an enemy that would wipe out it's own kind. Valesca serves another, and she has definitely fulfilled her own destiny. But I have a suspicion that this battle is not yet over. Gabrielle will grieve for her tribe but I have a feeling the fight to come will allow Ares to interfere, simply for the fact his own existance will be threathned. :D

Well I bet Caesar never saw that one coming. Looks like there going to be one hell of a showdown.
| HAZMOT chapter 30 . 1/20/2010
One thing is for sure, Gabrielle and the Amazons are putting up quite a fight despite the odds being overwhelming. I have a sneaking suspicion that Ceaser is a little over confident about Valasca. I might be even suprised if Ares doesn't just piss off Ceaser for the heck of it. It seems that Gabrielle is holding her own, but at what cost. If she fights then her home may be destroyed. If she doesn't then her village and her Amazons will be put into slavery. So there is definitely no easy choice here. :D

Really feels as though the real war is about to hit off, you can feel the tention building.
| Silvermoonlight GJ chapter 29 . 1/20/2010
Ares really tried hard with that one is it just me or is he trying to Gabrielle in a postion in which she'll lead his armies?
