My answer to Shipper Fic Challenge #8: Winter Wonderland
This fic should be winter themed. It could be a Winter Solstice Fic; it could be set in the Norse lands. Just about anything that puts you in mind of cold, snow, warm beverages, woolen mittens, and blazing hearths is game.
And as always it has to have some good shippery elements in it. And cannot be a subtext piece. I don't mind a little bi-text but I don't want to read a story that is exclusively Xena/Gabby centric.
1. There must be sledding/sleighing of some kind.
2. Reindeer must be included in the story.
3. Someone must get plastered (inebriated).
4. Mistletoe (need I say more).
No word length.
Genre is open as well; it can be drama, comedy, or angst (my personal favorite).
You can post anywhere you like for the hosting of the story but please include a link here so that all of our lovely members can enjoy your story!
Winner will be announced the first week of February and will be asked to come up with the next challenge.
Okay. So the challenge opens Now! That's right, you can post as soon as you finish your lovely pieces! And it will close on January 31st.
So what was Xena up to when Prometheus was chained the first time in the Hercules episode: “Hercules and the Circle of Fire"? Mankind has lost the ability to heal, lost fire, and it is starting to get chilly outside. A certain War God won’t let her risk herself and Aphrodite has a way to keep everyone entertained.
