About me:
I was born in Moscow (Russia) in 1963. I have lived in the United States since 1980. Since March 2001, I have been dividing my time between "real life" -- in which I am a writer/journalist and the author of two books -- and the Xena: Warrior Princess fandom, in which I am a fan fiction writer, a staff writer for the Shipper Virtual Seasons, a digital artist, a contributor to the online journal Whoosh!, and a moderator at the Xena Online Community forum. I also have a new fandom passion since the summer of 2009: The BBC Robin Hood series. I am active in the RH LiveJournal communities, on my own Yuku board (The New Robin Hood) and as a fanfiction writer. I am passionate about Xena, the show and the character, and about the Xena/Ares "'ship." I am passionate about "Robin Hood" and particularly the character of Guy of Gisborne and the Guy/Marian relationship. I am passionate about art and beauty, books and ideas. I am passionate about my friends and my work; and, last but not least, about freedom and justice. I believe in treating people as individuals first, regardless of their race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, or any other group membership. I believe that, with very few exceptions (such as those who preach hate or violence), one should try to look at both or all sides to a story or an argument. I believe that honest and intelligent people can strongly disagree and still treat each other and each other's beliefs with respect -- whether in political discussions or in fandom. NOTE ON FRIENDING POLICY: Generally, I do not accept friend requests from total strangers. If you are sending me a friend request and I have no idea who you are, please message me and explain why you want to be on my friend list. If you are simply making the rounds of Yuku collecting "friends," please move on.

What I've Been Up To

My Fanfiction


Equal to the Gods

While staying on the farm with Xena and Gabrielle, Ares learns that the two women are lovers, and Xena has to confront her feelings for the ex-God of War. The three find themselves caught up in a strange relationship in which there is only a thin line between love and hate, compassion and jealousy, happiness and heartbreak. Contains some sexually explicit scenes, violence, and strong language.

Second Chances

After the Twilight of the Gods, an unexpected development brings Xena and a now-mortal Ares together -- but can they find lasting happiness? Told from Gabrielle's point of view. Contains violence and strong language.

A Twist of Fate

As a mortal living on a ramshackle farm, Ares suddenly finds himself in an alternate reality where he is once again the God of War and Xena, Empress of Rome, is his mistress -- but soon discovers that this new world isn't as perfect as it seemed at first. When the young Greek playwright Gabrielle enters the picture, the Empress, the God of War, and the playwright find themselves enmeshed in intrigue that may turn deadly. Based on the Season 6 X:WP episode, "When Fates Collide." Some adult scenes, violence.

The Joining Part I: Understanding

After helping Ares regain his godhood, Xena believes that he is back to his old ruthless and devious self. But a chance encounter leads to her to see a God of War struggling with the aftereffects of mortality -- and to confront some hard truths about their relationship. Contains some adult scenes.

The Joining Part II: The Test

A new campaign of conquest tests Xena's relationship with Ares and her friendship with Gabrielle, forcing Xena to once again confront the darkest part of herself, Gabrielle to grapple with her path as a warrior, and Ares to fear that he may destroy the woman he loves. Adult scenes, violence.

The Joining Part III: Reunion

A 21st Century historian studying the life of Xena, Warrior Princess finds more than she bargained for.


The Lady of Nottingham

Things take a different turn in the Season 2 finale.  The gang is dead, as are Sheriff Vaisey and King Ricahrd; Guy of Gisborne is now the Sheriff of Nottingham and married to Lady Marian -- but does he have everything he wanted? A clue: Not quite. At least, definitely not the way he envisioned it.  Sexual situations.

A Different Side

As an outlaw on the run, Guy of Gisborne meets someone from his past, with unexpected consequences.  Non-graphic sexual situations.
