First Kiss by napalmnacey First Kiss by napalmnacey
Well, yes. When it came to Xena: WP, I was one of *those*. I was a Gabrielle/Joxer shipper. Most people find this kind of surprising because I'm openly bisexual. To be honest, I always found Xena and Gabrielle's relationship kind of unhealthy. Then again, now that I've grown up some, I could see how G/J is kinda unhealthy too. I don't know. I guess I liked what Joxer brought out in Gabrielle sometimes. Kindness, and she used to face herself. Plus I will always love Ted Raimi. What a hottie. Very nice man, too. :)

I think any relationship between two people who are very different from each other can be unhealthy. That’s why communication and trust are such vital components to a relationship’s success, and that’s why, when it comes to Xena, I prefer Joxer/Gabrielle over Xena/Gabrielle. Xena is just too much of a “hit first, ask questions later” sort, and frankly, judging by how she acts in some episodes, I’m inclined to believe she actually enjoys killing to some extent. Joxer may be deluded about how much of a warrior he is – which I chalk up to how, and by whom, he was raised – but deep down he’s gentle, and I think he’s more the type to actually talk to Gabrielle and trust Gabrielle, rather than condescendingly treat her like a child who can't make her own decisions.  

Xena/Gabrielle have their moments (and those moments can be beautiful), but all in all, I think Joxer's gentle and lively nature is more Gabrielle's type.

Well, I'm a G/J and A/X shipper, but I get squishy over X/G all the time. Cause sometimes those ladies are too adorable! In the words of Joxer, "GROUP HUG!"

Wow this is really good! I was never really a big fan of xena, then again I don't think I ever watched more than five minutes of it so I never reallyhad a chance to like it haha. Still the people are really well drawn and I love the shading on their faces.
