Reviews for Dandelion
TrekInTandem chapter 1 . 6/14/2014
Sweet. I don't know why the previous reviewer can't fit this into his/her concept of XWP. Can't see Gab, who encourages Xena to stop and appreciate nature and smell the flowers, waxing nostalgia upon seeing a dandelion? Can't see Xena and Gab, the women who argue for kicks over whether a certain pattern of stars resembles a bear or a dipper and play Ancient 20 Questions (with Xena cheating) and who race for the stakes of a batch of dumplings with the red stuff inside, giving in to a moment of whimsy? Or can't see big tough Xena, who once gave Gabrielle a toy sheep and later tricked her into drinking out of a dribble cup, giving into making a wish at Gabrielle's request? Xena who one explicitly stated, "What Gabrielle wants, Gabrielle gets"? No, this piece is well within character and fits with the tone of the X/G dynamic. Xena, both sardonic yet wistful and romantic at once, is spot on.

Cute, but a little silly. I certainly learned plenty about dandelions, but I can't ever imagine this on the show. I understand what you were doing when you described Gabrielle's eyes as "grass-colored," but it just made the sentence awkward.

I just melt over here hahaha

Very good,I can almost see it.I can really picture it as part of season 1 or 2. Gab and her nature also was not really subtext of them being together until The Quest,so i would believe Xena getting all shy here. Lol good job!

Ahhh, this was a pretty fast read, but because it was so easy and fun to get through. XD I loved the fast bantering between these two, and I learned more than my fair share about dandelions. *snicker* Soprano. XD Ahh, such hilarious inside jokes.

Phineas Redux chapter 1 . 12/28/2010
A very pretty picture of the two lovers. Both Gabrielle and Xena are perfect here. I like Xena's reminiscence of her warlord days!Their delightful chat is sketched with just enough detail to give the ideal atmosphere. Very well written.

I love this story. Short and sweet. Some of my favorite stories are where no specific thing happens, no wild adventure, just quiet moments of bonding that make up relationships. This would not be at all out of place in a "Xena" episode.
ideasofmany chapter 1 . 12/23/2010
Very sweet! I think I have a cavity lol. I like how they both share their memories . My favorite part is "Alright, if it will make you happy." and what Xena wished for. Nice glimpse into their life :)
the mighty lu bu chapter 1 . 12/22/2010
very nice!

It feels very much like a converation they would have, like on the show.

Really well down, both characters were spot on.
