The Most Painful Shipper Moment
Any X/A shipper knows full well that there have been some painful, vindictive, downright depraved moments between Xena and the God of War. So, I thought it interesting to ask what moment was the hardest for you, as a shipper, to swallow?
For me, it's the scene in 'You Are There' where Xena gives Ares the apple first, before she brings love back into the world by giving Aphrodite her godhood back. This shows a total disregard for Ares feelings. All through the series, Xena spouts rhetoric about the importance of a person having the freedom to make their own fate and chose their own path, but when it comes to giving Ares the dignity of a fully conscious choice, a choice he might literally have to live with for ETERNITY, she waits until she knows he's been stripped of the ability to factor in his feelings. Ares did some terrible things to Xena, but for most of the series, he literally didn't know any better. Xena did and she still went through with it. That hurts.
