    Summary

    Gabrielle had pleaded, and argued, and persisted until Xena finally told her to either fuck off or meet the pointy end of her sword.

    Gabrielle took another gamble. She called Xena’s bluff.

    Gabrielle wasn’t sure who was more surprised when she did it. They were both stunned into silence, and for half a second Xena’s glacial eyes had thawed, and Gabrielle saw a bone-tired weariness through the mask of stone. And then Xena sheathed her sword and agreed to Gabrielle’s terms.

    Xena would get the young bard to the crossroads outside Athens, and from there, they would part.

    --OR--

    A what-if AU where Gabrielle stays at the Academy of the Bards and Xena goes her own way. Six years later, Xena returns to Athens, bloodied and up on the auction block. Gabrielle leverages her success and position to protect her one-time friend, but how safe can either of them really be when Caeser comes to town?
