Welcome to another Awesome Fanfic Monday!
I, like many, grew up watching the excellence that was Xena: Warrior Princess. I enjoyed the evolution and transformation of that show and frankly it was freaking entertaining and fun as hell. I love how it incorporated different mythologies and segments of history (even if it did tweak a few facts/details here and there) and something I would love to see is a crossover between Xena and Thor. Now the show did explore some Nordic mythology, but I just love the idea of Marvel’s Thor battling alongside the Warrior Princess. Thanks to some kind folks on fanfiction.net, my dream of imagining these two worlds together has come true.
This week’s Awesome Fanfic Monday goes to Gods and Demi-Gods by daviderl31 of fanfiction.net.
What I love about this story is how the author has mixed these two fictional worlds. Yes, Xena has had its adventures with characters from Nordic mythology, but not specifically with the Marvel incarnation of them. The way Thor interacts with Xena, Gabrielle, and *especially* Ares is priceless! Oh, that’s another reason you need to read this, it includes everyone’s favorite God of War (rip Kevin Smith).
The dialogue is so on point that I feel like these characters are truly interacting with each other. I also appreciate the inclusion of Hercules and that aspect of the storyline, so everyone gets to join the party! This is quite the tale and it takes some surprising turns that’s gonna cause some tears down the line. I won’t spoil it, you’ll just have to read it! daviderl31 has created an epic and fun tale that combines two over the top and magical worlds in a wonderful and plausible way.
