This has to be one of my favoritest Kam stories, and Ive read a few of them. I did. Im a fan. Though, I have to admit it has taken me some time to fully get over the "Crying Game" kind of shock after I realized that Kamouraskan, indeed, is a man.
Yeah, yeah, thats what I said how can a *guy*, no matter how sensitive and New Age he may be, write such excellent, poignant, funny, but most of all, like, right on Xena fan fiction? What is this world coming to? Should we start expecting the toilet seat to be lowered down as well? Lord!
But its true one of the most prolific and established authors in the Xena fan fic realm is not a woman, its a man, man! Not that Im dwelling on that or anything
But, back to "First Date". An excellent short story. A vignette really, but with enough feeling and wit in it to keep you more than satisfied. A characteristic of Kams body of work, wonderful Xena and Gabrielle characterizations, are present in full force. This is a tender story, a vision of the kind of future Xena and Gabrielle deserved to see together.
Go ahead, youll like it. I promise. Oh, and make sure you thank the boy for it, k? J
