Quote:Xena loving Ares does not direct me to think Xena weak, a victim or he succeeded by manipulation. I'm assured by Xena herself she is secure and holds her own power over Ares -including Ares the god. Her only reason I believe to not be drawn to succumb to her love for Ares was her fear she'd rivert back to her darkness, back to a killing spree for the wrong reasons.
Quote:When TPTB made Ares mortal in S5, Symbolic Ares ceased to exist. So IMO at that point he may be able to experience the full range of human emotions. Maybe like a new-born child. So Mortal Ares doesn't work on the symbolic level I've been talking about. And theoretically love between Mortal Ares and Xena becomes a possibility within the symbolic reading .

Quote:so as in the case of Ares, I see them returning to and validating those themes. In this respect, TPTB's final word on X/A is SP, and their final word on X/G is FIN. Shippers don't like what TPTB did to Ares in SP, I don't like what they did to Gabrielle in FIN.

Quote:Regarding Ares in TXS: That moment when he mentions being a fan of Hitler is . . . I guess I don't take that one too seriously because it couldn't take into account the potential development of the characters later on in the show. But I really wish they hadn't had Ares say that.
Quote:As for Ares' return to GOW status, I think that that made things much more difficult between him and Xena, but I still feel like they came to an understanding in POV. I also think that Ares' time as a mortal and his love for Xena made it harder for him to be the [email protected]

Quote:Ex: He gave up his war between the Amazons and Rome so that Xena could save Eve. So he does revert back to being GOW, but he has been changed by the experience.
