| Xinthos chapter 19 . 6/9
I love, love, love, love, LOVE this story. I read it for the first time years ago and was sorting through my favorites when I decided to read it again. It's just so, so beautiful, and has such an excellently crafted plot that held my attention without a moment's doubt or disinterest. The characters are true to themselves and believable even when they're not exactly canon. The language you used really leant itself to the feel, the style of story-telling, and it sometimes struck me like a blade to the heart with both its elegance and its straightforwardness. You wrote gracefully and poetically but with restraint, a rare skill. The poem that Lyceus wrote for Gabrielle (and Xena) brought me to tears.
The ending, too, was wonderful. You really showcased the soul of their relationship, their unrelenting and boundless love, and that it withstands even in the face of tragedy, of meddling gods, and of death and life in all its forms. While I wish in my overly-sentimental heart that Gabrielle would remember everything that happened, I for once accept and relish the "it was all just a dream" type ending. You did it well and with purpose. Aphrodite's "I always win" will, I think, unfailingly bring a smile to my face no matter how many times I come back to read this.
Thank you for writing this story.

You make me want to scream at the screen. In a good, but heart-wrenching way. My head's split between trying to thank you for the story and demanding why you had to do this. I guess the polite thing to do would be to thank you, so, thank you. It was a good story, and while I find myself inexplicably frustrated by the turn of events, I understand that this is how the story ends, and that the melancholy I feel comes from the greatness that is your writing. So, yeah, thank you.
