Xena - Recommendations

There are so many Xena stories on the web that it can sometimes be a little overwhelming for newcomers. So in addition to the stories housed on the site, all of which I'd recommend reading, we have a number of story and video recommendations, as supplied by members of the site's lj community, to help feed the addiction that will soon be brewing. More will be added throughout the month.
