If you would like to purchase a hard copy of her work; many of them have been published into books. If I am not mistaken Missy is the first of Xena Fan Fiction authors to have their uber work published. She also had the privilege of working on the last season of Xena. Again, that was a result of her writing fan fiction. (Please let  me know if I have my facts wrong. I'm not a pro here; this is just what I recall.)

Reviews of Missy's Work

Melissa Good established herself as a very promising writer with her first story A Warrior By Any Other Name. With this second offering she easily lives up to that promise giving us one of the best stories written this year so far - a long, WONDERFUL tale that has a little bit of everything but that you'll remember above all for the beautiful, loving and tender relationship between warrior and bard. The story opens with Xena and Gabrielle relaxing after the events depicted in Missy's first tale. They are traveling on their own once again and have begun to further explore the growing feelings between them. It is an exploration that will be put on hold suddenly when Gabrielle has to return to the Amazons to deal with a dangerous power struggle, while Xena goes to Amphipolis where she soon finds herself in a volatile situation of her own. Separated, the two can no longer ignore what they feel for one another but every day they're apart the danger grows worse until finally both realize they have no choice but to face that danger. Suspense, action, humor - they're all in here but the romance is special and unforgettable. Note that there is no graphic sex scenes in this story. It is a tale the whole family can enjoy. A Personal favorite that gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! Courtesy of Lunacy.

At A Distance There's a reason Missy Good is called the Alpha. She's one of the best writers in the Xenaverse. At a Distance is probably my all-time favorite Xena/Gabrielle first time story. I've read it multiple times, and it always makes me smile. It's romantic; it's emotional; it's suspenseful. It's a wonderful interpretation of the characters. Xena and Gabrielle are just starting to acknowledge the changes in their relationship, but they become separated when Gabrielle is called to the Amazon village. Enemies operating within the Amazon tribe and Xena's fierce determination to protect her bard are part of an exciting plot that culminates into one of the best first kiss scenes ever written. I know everyone in the Xenaverse has already read this one, but there's nothing stoppin' ya from reading it again. I guarantee it's just as good the second time. This one gets everyone's. Review highest recommendation. Courtesy of Cee's Reviews.

Home is where the Heart is Melissa Good is quickly proving to be one of the best things to ever happen to XWP fan fic. After reading AT A DISTANCE, I didn't think she would ever be able to top that effort but with this sequel she is well on her way to doing just that. HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS made it into my favorites list with the first chapter. The story begins where AT A DISTANCE left off, with our heroines on their way to Potidaea after receiving a summons from Gabrielle's father. Xena immediately senses her bard's unease about returning home but does not suspect the terrible secret Gabrielle is hiding - the pain which once almost silenced the stories within her and which in a moment of desperation two years before prompted a young village girl to follow a half-crazed warlord on her quest for redemption. It is a secret Xena will slowly unravel as Gabrielle once again finds herself amidst people with no tolerance for those who are different, forced to deal with a family who have never understood her, and having at last as a woman to confront what years before a child could not. For both the warrior and the bard Potidaea will be a difficult struggle but one they are determined to face together, drawing strength from their love and the incredible connection they feel even...at a distance. The exchanges between Xena and Gabrielle in this story are some of the most moving, most beautiful you could ever read - even the most minor scenes between them burrow themselves in your heart sparking a warmth that just makes you want to read this story again and again. There are no graphic scenes. It is a MUST READ and carries my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Bound  Missy's TRIUMPHANT fourth XWP novel picks up where HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS ended. Having left Potidaea behind, Xena and Gabrielle decide to go back to the land of the forest dwellers they first met in A WARRIOR BY ANY OTHER NAME. They want to see their friend Jessan but there is something else drawing them back to those unusual people - a need now to understand the strange bond some of the forest dwellers share with each other - a connection they call the lifebond - a connection Xena and Gabrielle now know they also share but need to understand. In addition to this personal quest, the two will face new dangers as they try to help Jessan's people fight a bloodthirsty enemy and later find themselves strangely drawn to the ghosts of an ancient past - to the story of two other women who also faced incredible challenges and against the odds found a timeless love. This tale is of the same caliber as all of Missy's stories to date featuring exceptional characterizations, a captivating and well-structured plot, an incredibly romantic treatment of the Xena/Gab relationship that manages through flashbacks to even explore the earlier stages of that relationship, and the return appearance of one of the most beloved original characters in XWP fan fiction - Ares the wolf pup (Roo!! :) A Missy story is a magical experience NOT TO BE MISSED people! Note - this story is not explicit. BOUND merits my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Winter's Ending With this bard in our folds, Xenites have to simply be the LUCKIEST fans on the Net. Yes folks...she's baaaaaaack - and as usual she's back with another EXCEPTIONAL novel. When I have to review a new work by Missy I take out my thesaurus because inevitably I find myself in need of synonyms for the word "fantastic"...soooooo, thesaurus in hand - here we go! :) As with all her novels to date, this new work is a sequel to what has gone before so if you haven't read Missy's previous novels treat yourself to the experience. In order they are A WARRIOR BY ANY OTHER NAME, AT A DISTANCE, HOME IS WHERE THE HEART IS and BOUND. Set after the events in BOUND, the beginning of this novel chronicles a quiet time in the lives of the Warrior Princess and her bard. Having faced adversity, struggled with old wounds from the past and deadly enemies in their present, having finally surrendered to the love which binds their minds, their hearts and souls as one, Xena and Gabrielle have settled in Amphipolis for the Winter. With a home of their own at long last, family surrounding them and a joining to look forward to, their happiness seems assured. The Winter is hard, however, and long and before it's over warrior and bard will once again face new challenges - the first one of which arrives with a friend in trouble and young lives on the line. Missy's depiction of the Xena/Gabrielle relationship remains second to none. In this story she continues the technique she started using in BOUND, offering flashbacks of past events in the lives of Xena and Gabrielle. These are often as emotional and captivating as the greater story, adding depth to the already outstanding characterizations. There is a warm, poignant beauty to Missy's writing that just dazzles the soul. I have no doubt that even people who have never seen XWP would be hooked if they read a Missy story. Sit back and enjoy folks because we have some wonderful weeks ahead of us as this story unfolds. As with everything to date that has come from the Good keyboard - it is NOT TO BE MISSED and gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Reflections from the Past Already responsible for six of the most popular, most loved XWP stories on the Net, Missy latest is a combination uber-Xena/clip show story which already looks like it will easily match the outstanding body of work bearing this writer's name. As the story begins Xena and her bard are still hibernating in Amphipolis, enjoying the peace of their home and the simple comfort of just being with one another. They decide to work on translating the ancient scrolls they found while visiting Jessan's people in BOUND. Before long they are uncovering an emotional tale, almost as passionate and poignant as their own, involving a village girl named Ardwyn and the enigmatic Viking warrior who captures her heart. All the while the story revealed in those scrolls is awakening memories in Xena and Gabrielle, memories of the times they've shared and the long road they've traveled to get to the happiness they're now blessed with. Missy's flashbacks continue to be among the best in the business, giving us insights into scenes from the TV show and filling in the time in between episodes like no other fan fiction has ever done. The uber sections in this story are also particularly well written - done in a style that is different from the rest of the novel and adds tremendously to the atmosphere of the more ancient story. In a rather angst-filled third season, this newest Missy offering is a godsend folks! What are you still doing reading this review???? GO READ THE STORY!!! It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Darkness Falls This is THE story every fanfic aficionado out there has been waiting for - Missy tackles "the rift", and folks it is indeed another incredible experience courtesy of one of the most consistent talents in our Xenaverse. This tale is particularly intense in that while set after the episode BITTER SUITE, it also CONTINUES the storyline Missy has been following throughout her novels. Indeed DARKNESS FALLS takes place after REFLECTIONS FROM THE PAST which Missy just finished. Given the incredible love, tenderness and commitment which has increasingly characterized the relationship between warrior and bard throughout Missy's novels, it is especially heart-wrenching to see that relationship in pieces at the beginning of this latest story as Xena and Gabrielle struggle to try to deal with what has happened to them and what they've done to one another. Missy changes the events which we saw on TV just a bit but other than that she plunges headlong into the trauma of the rift chronicling a much more realistic emotional journey for Xena and Gabrielle as they start on the path back to one another. This story is on the surface very different from what we're used to from this bard but beneath that surface and making its way to the top is the same magic, the same sense of gentle passion and fierce love that in Xena fanfic is classic Melissa Good. This story gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Leap of Faith So consistent she'd probably never make it as a character in a third season episode of XWP, Missy returns with another exceptional XWP novel. Set about a month after the events in DARKNESS FALLS, the story begins with the warrior and bard recovering nicely from their recent ordeals, rejoicing in the healing their relationship is experiencing. The sense of things in fact returning back to normal becomes even more pronounce when they visit Poteidaia and once again find people in need of their help, people looking to the Warrior Princess when no other hope remains. Unbeknownst to them, trouble is stirring in other parts too, as danger envelops a dear friend. Featuring exceptional writing, masterful storytelling, Missy's endearing sense of humor, and one of the most beloved depictions of the Xena/Gab relationship in fanfic this is another treat for us all guys. A MUST READ that receives my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Promises Kept After another of her LOOOOONG absences ;-) this bard-extraordinaire returns with the sequel to LEAP OF FAITH which finds the warrior and bard getting on with their lives, making plans for both the weeks ahead...and the years they plan to spend together. For Xena this involves some final preparations for their upcoming trip to see friends and family...for the bard it means taking the first steps in turning a wish into reality. There are things about a Missy story that just seem automatic these days - solid, sensitively drawn portrayals of our two heroines, beautiful writing with rich images and lots of heartfelt exchanges, a terrific supporting cast and one of the most heart-warming depictions of the Xena/Gab relationship in fanfic. We get them all in this beauty of a tale folks...and IT gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Festival Missy is on vacation. However, since it IS available and in case some of you ARE interested, I thought I'd mention that it is now available :) This is the sequel to PROMISES KEPT which finds the warrior and bard on their way to the Amazons to celebrate the Festival of Dyonisus. Missy maintains the general sense of playfulness and happiness the warrior and bard achieved in PROMISES KEPT after learning that their little family will be growing. The opening of this latest offering embodies what makes this bard's fiction so very special - a magical sense of connection and trust and love between two soulmates reveling in the simple pleasure of being together. Don't even bother reading reviews about a Melissa Good story - just go read. On the strength of part one alone it already gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! :) Courtesy of Lunacy.

Circle of Life Possibly more anticipated than the fourth season of XWP, comes the continuation of Missy's beloved Xena/Gab series in a story which continues the tale from FESTIVAL but is actually set after the events in the episode FAMILY AFFAIR. Still recuperating from their recent ordeal, the warrior and bard are back in Amphipolis awaiting the birth of their child and treasuring their time together as never before. With Amazons visiting and word of friends and family in trouble, however, their tranquillity is short-lived as the two, reunited once again, prepare to face whatever life throws their way. Missy's very special style is clearly in evidence as this novel opens - immediately placing the Xena/Gab relationship center stage and infusing the story with a unique blend of delightful humor, poignant drama and enchanting characterizations. If you want to treat yourself to the work of a master storyteller DO NOT MISS this story or any other of the others in the series. This gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Dark Comes the Morning Xena and Gabrielle have settled contentedly in Amphipolis, and are enjoying their new baby daughter, Doriana. Or are they? Life is, as Gabrielle well knows, a series of trade offs. To achieve one thing, you often have to give up something else. Here we go again folks on another spectacular ride into what is undoubtedly the most-loved vision of Xena and Gabrielle in this fandom as Missy picks up the story of the warrior and bard almost a year after the events in CIRCLE OF LIFE. Enjoying the new addition to their family, Xena and Gabrielle are happy seeing their daughter grow and spending time with friends and family but there's a restlessness stirring within them also as the bard finds herself craving those quiet times she used to spend with the warrior on the road, and Xena works to keep her active mind challenged. It's a restlessness that soon finds an outlet when refugees begin to arrive in Amphipolis from neighboring areas prompting Xena and her partner to go do a little investigating in a decision that will herald the return of a terrible darkness into their lives. There's a level of understanding, love and devotion in Missy's versions of these characters that adds a terrific sense of warmth and intimacy to their every interaction. Already in part one this story presents a captivating combination of gentle humor, poignant drama and suspenseful intrigue certain to intensify in the chapters ahead under the guidance of this master storyteller. Make this one a regular stop in the weeks ahead. It gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

A Matter of Pride Missy continues the JOURNEY OF SOULMATES SERIES which started her out on her unlikely journey in this fandom with the fifteenth installment in this much-loved saga of the Warrior Princess and her bard. As our story commences the two are living an unusually peaceful life in Amphipolis, helping to chart the town's rapid growth, trying to keep Dori in one piece, and as always, enjoying one another. It's a quiet time destined to end all too quickly when the recent prosperity they helped to bring to Amphipolis attracts some unwelcome attention forcing the warrior and bard to once again take to the road - this time to represent the interests of their family and neighbors in a whole different arena. Along the way though, they'll revisit the usual challenges of life on the road, have opportunities to once again use those "many skills", and take the time to have one or two of those heart-to-hearts Missy has elevated to a new art form in her stories. Indisputably the most prolific fanfic writer in this fandom and possibly the Internet, Missy has honed her skills with each new novel to the point where her writing, strong to begin with, now flows with an easiness and sophistication that makes her stories a true pleasure to read. Her characters are designed with a depth and richness that makes them come alive in a way that even eclipses the live ones we see in the TV series. Still in its initial stages, this newest addition to her formidable body of work promises to entertain us, and delight us and move us through the end of the sixth season and beyond. Something DEFINITELY to look forward to. A MATTER OF PRIDE gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Champion This 16th entry in Missy's much-loved A JOURNEY OF SOULMATES SERIES picks up the story after Xena and Gabrielle's visit to Athens. The trip home is interrupted by a forest dweller with an urgent message for the two - Lestan is dying and he needs to see Xena. What they find when they reach their old friend is a devastated community and a people in turmoil - torn between their more violent nature and the soul bonds which have formed such an integral part of their society for so long. Some of the younger forest dwellers are determined to undermine the power of the soul bonds. Certain that love only weakens warriors, they have vowed to bring back the more savage traditions of a people long devoted to the God of War. Unbeknownst to them, Ares' Chosen and her soul bond are about to show them just what love can do to warriors. Throw in a precocious toddler that is VERY much her parents' kid - and the forest dwellers are in for a much WILDER time than they ever imagined! With some of the most intense cliff-hangers Missy has ever written, this tale is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story spotlights not only the strengths of our two heroines but the uniqueness and magic of their relationship. Moments of humor combine with moments of insight along with that trademark Merwolf mush to provide a thoroughly satisfying read. VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Courtesy of Lunacy.

One Wild Ride This absolutely traumatized me - in a good way though... It teasingly left you unsatisfied and I felt justice wasn't served and then I was like.... damn she's doing that on purpose - and boy it gets nasty, but its so so worth the heartbreak. Courtesy of The Athenaeum

A Queen’s Tale Ok so I have been looking for somewhere to vent my love for the amazing author that is M GOOD. I have read everything she has written and then read it twice more, I have to keep amercing myself in her imagination. Amazing thank you thank you. I happily recommend any story MELISSA HAS put her hand and mind too, she keeps you wanting more, you will fall in love with her heroines and hate the people who want to do wrong by them..... keep them coming Melissa WE Want MORE. -  Dec-11-2012  Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Shadows of the Soul I must say that I love this particular "CONQUEROR" series. Xena is bloodthirsty, however she is not abusive to Gabrielle. She is almost goofy in a way that all of us are when we first fall in love with someone and faces the same insecurities. She questions herself along the way, and somehow she finds her path and faces the consequences whether good or bad. Melissa is truly the "Goddess of Bards"!!  Feb-17-2008 Courtesy of The Athenaeum

This has to be the best conquer story ever written. She paints an excellent picture of a ruling Xena. One who will not apologize for her actions, but instead explains the reasons behind them. Gabrielle in her remarkable yet subtle way gets Xena 'The Merciless' to see that there are other ways to obtain loyalty And to know love. The depth of each character is endless. One can only hope for a sequel. A MUST READ & HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!  - Jan 8th, 2003  Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Queen of Hearts Another gem from Missy. Her Xena is very believable. Though deeply in love with Gabrielle she cannot & will not forsake the violence that made her a ruler. Only with Gabrielle will she allow a softer side to show. Lila - Anonymous - Nov-12-2010   

As much as I enjoyed the first in this series, I enjoyed this one even more. Melissa brings such a light and insight to both characters, but especially Gab. Watching Gab find herself in this and stand up to Xena in her darkness was just inspiring. Walk, don't run to this series if you're a Conqueror fan.  - Apr-21-2013 Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Queen for all Seasons Good Series and an amazing characterization of Xena and Gabrielle. I like the dark humour of this Merciless's warrior. It make laugh and it compels me to read to get more... To think that I stumble for pure case on these works... lucky me... - kky - Dec-03-2009 Courtesy of The Athenaeum

"Dar Roberts and Kerry Stuart -- their meeting and subsequent work and life together, chronicled by Missy Good in "Tropical Storm" (her first uber), "Hurricane Watch," " Eye of the Storm," and the as-yet-unfinished "Tropical High," have enthralled thousands and inspired caps, bumper stickers, a movie deal AND a Bud-winning spin-off ("Silent Legacy" by Llachlan). At the heart of it all is the story of two remarkable women who -- like the Xena and Gabrielle portrayed in Missy's Bud-winning Journeys of the Soul series -- find each other and in the process find themselves." -- Swollen Buds

Tropical Storm Time for uber-Xena fans to rejoice as the incredibly talented Missy Good extends her gift of storytelling into the contemporary uber realm. Missy's latest is a departure from everything she's done before - a story set in modern-day Miami, centering on the lives of two strangers whose destinies bring them together amidst the turmoil of a hostile corporate takeover. Wealthy, brilliant and deadly, Dar Roberts has cultivated a well-earned reputation as one of the most efficient corporate raiders in the Information Technologies business. To her bosses she is a formidable weapon to be used in the never-ending struggle for power, control and profit. To the people employed by the companies she assimilates - the executive is a predator - cold and merciless. It is a reputation she is living up to as she prepares to decimate the work force of a recent acquisition. In charge of that work force is Kerry Stuart - a smart, young manager whose life had been going well until the recent turn of events. With dogged determination, Kerry has escaped the pressures of family to make her own way in the world - establishing a career and rising quickly within a small company - only to now have to face the prospect of those efforts being for naught as a disconcertingly beautiful blue-eyed shark strolls into her office. Missy's many strengths are quickly in evidence throughout the first parts of this story - rich descriptions that engage your every sense - multi-layered characterizations that draw you into the psyche of the characters and a story very much grounded in human emotions, human frailties and strengths along with the raw vulnerabilities that ultimately make us all seek the comfort of another soul. Working in the the Information Technologies industry herself and a fellow Miamian, Missy also imbues the story with a very realistic feel. Another outstanding offering from this bard, TS gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!! Courtesy of Lunacy.

Hurricane Watch IMHO, Melissa Good writes the best Xena fan fiction on the Internet. This is the second in her alt/uber series featuring Dar and Kerry (starts with Tropical Storm). If you are at all into tech stuff, these are especially fun. - Xena Lives - Sep-19-2011 Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Eye of the Storm Missy's ground breaking DAR AND KERRY SERIES continues with our two heroines busy at work as they prepare to face challenges both professional and personal. On the last legs of a two-week work trip, Kerry is laying the ground work for the latest company merger but what should be a routine procedure begins to get complicated when the young executive starts to smell some skeletons behind those unfriendly offices. Meanwhile, Dar travels to Houston to help her boss deal with a very serious and very determined new enemy - an enemy that wants a change at the top and is not past getting personal to get what he wants. Amidst this world of corporate intrigue and back stabbing, Dar and Kerry hold on to the very special magic they've found with one another, recognizing their connection as a treasured oasis in the eye of a coming storm...This story has a master storyteller doing what she does best - delivering a tale with vivid characterizations, rich descriptions and a plot which hooks you from that first paragraph. Missy continues to beautifully develop both the characters of Dar and Kerry and their relationship - presenting us in this story with two women more comfortable than ever with one another, more in love than ever, gaining strength and confidence in who they are together and apart. Strap those seat belts and prepare for a WONDERFUL new ride courtesy of one amazing writer. Missy's latest gets my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!

Tropical High "As the story commences the grrls are separated with Dar turning heads and trying to make the best of it at a business meeting in New York. Back in Miami, Kerry is keeping those home fires burning as she makes sure things continue to run smoothly at the office, makes plans for the Thanksgiving dinner they will be hosting for friends and family and spends a bit of time volunteering with a group of teenagers who like Dar - think she's just the coolest! ;-) With Dar looking forward to the new work she'll be doing for the military and Kerry settling into her position as vice-president, lots of challenges will await these two on the professional front while on a personal level their relationship continues to grow and strengthen, always remaining a sanctuary of love and acceptance and support against whatever life throws their way . . . Missy+Dar+Kerry = HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!" Courtesy of Lunacy.

Terrors of the High Seas This new tale finds them planning a nice, quiet, relaxing little vacation in the Caribbean...only things don't quite turn out as planned. Before long Kerry is playing hero and getting a clueless admirer in return, Dar is skillfully dodging a mysterious black ship intent on pursuing them, and the two are dealing with a growing mystery on their hand as they investigate rumors of piracy and realize that they may have stumbled upon a much more serious cover-up than first suspected . . . HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" Courtesy of Lunacy.

Moving Target I HIGHLY recommend anything written my Melissa Good...she is truly one extremely talented writer...I greedily eat up her work like there's no tomorrow. Moving Target will not disappoint but I'd recommend reading her Dar & Kerry series in order... May-13-2008 Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Storm Surge One of my marked favorites is merwolf updates and has been for 7 years. I have followed each of Dar and Kerry's stories one update at a time then gone back and read them completely, several times. With Storm Surge, Melissa shows the personal growth of Dar and Kerry as adversity only tightens the bonds and highlights the strengths brought forth in the development of all her characters. This is a reflection of the strengths shown by our nation following 9/11. As always, Great job Melissa. (please write faster-lol) -  Apr-15-2008  Courtesy of The Athenaeum

Winds of Change Melissa Good is a fine gift to fanfiction. I am so happy that someone of her skill has taken the time to write these brilliant stories. It only shows the love Melissa has for the characters and the world she has created. Dar and Kerry (and every other character) are multifaceted and polychromatic. They are tangible and real, just as their love for one another. They embed themselves into your psyche, it's inevitable! Melissa's descriptions are visually rich and satisfying. The very present erotic moments are handled in a tactful, gentle and "just enough" manner. The dialogues are the best I have ever read. Nothing feels forced. The story flows and the characters flow with it. Everything happens at the right moment. If I could only read one fanfiction author, it would be Melissa Good. I've read them all: Tropical Storm, Hurricane Watch, Eye of the Storm, Tropical High, and I just finished reading Terrors of the High Seas today, after rereading the previous 2 or 3 times. After reading Tropical Storm you will feel the need to glue yourselves to Dar and Kerry for the rest of their lives... But Melissa has written just the right number of sequels. At the end of Terrors of the High Seas, you will feel that need delightfully sedated from knowing that Dar and Kerry have reached closure in the most outstanding aspects of their separate lives. From then on, they will be together forever, and prepared to face the future come what may. - Feb 12th, 2005

Home from the Sea HOME FROM THE SEA by Melissa Good - [Alt]
The Merwolf gets in the "spirit" of the season with this little Halloween entry in the DAR AND KERRY SERIES that begins with our heroines shopping for costumes. Later in the day the two exchange some ghost stories including one Dar knows about the empty Vanderbilt mansion located within site of their condo. Intrigued despite herself, Kerry is drawn to the mansion when she spots movement in the supposedly abandoned upper rooms. Curiosity getting the best of her - she decides to investigate only to soon be desperately regretting doing so when it starts to look like something does indeed seem to still be inhabiting the lonely mansion... A fun if scary ride for one of our favorite uber twosomes. Courtesy of Lunacy.

Unmasked Hearts Merwolf treats us to a very special visit with Dar and Kerry in this look back at their first Halloween together. Set just after Kerry began working at EDS, the story has the young newcomer shopping for a costume for the upcoming office Halloween party and feeling a bit angsty about fitting in. For her part, Dar plans on avoiding the festivities as she's always done but those plans start to go awry when her new assistant gently prods her to go awakening within the executive a peculiar urge to scandalize her co-workers...and mingle a bit more with a lovely little revolutionary. One of the best in the fandoms in the use of flashbacks, Missy essentially devotes an entire story to one here giving us a delightful insight into those first stirrings of friendship and more between Dar and Kerry. Amusing and sweet, this is yet another terrific addition to one of the finest series in the fandom. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Courtesy of Lunacy.
