Perception is Nine-Tenths of the Law
Iolaus knew when he woke up with a terrible hangover that it wasn't going to be one of his better days but when he found himself dressed in black, in Ares temple, with a nasty nickname, he knew it was going to be his worst day ever.
Someone's in the Kitchen with Hercules
It's always nice when old friends drop by unexpectedly for dinner, even if all you have to eat is leftovers and the old friend has been dead for centuries.
My version of how Iolaus gets to have his cake and eat it, too.
Play it Again, Herc
h/c, drama, AU, episode related (Amazon Women)
Being hit on the head sometimes caused Hercules momentary confusion but surely the blow hadn't been hard enough to cause him to forget what happened to Iolaus at the hands of that Amazon.

An Iolaus A Day
Well, it's better than having Iolaus dead again but it is giving Hercules a headache and Jason can't keep them all straight.
Difference Between Me and Thee
Thinking in the Rain
Better for Everyone
challenge 6-2001, drama Golden Apple Challenge: Hercules and Iolaus genuinely disagree about an issue. This is my version of what Iolaus does when he isn't with Hercules.
Iolaus was born mortal. Hercules was the son of a god. Someday, that was going to make a big difference in their lives and Iolaus was going to have some trouble dealing with it.
Change of Scenery
Response to a Golden Apple challenge: The opening line was the challenge. The story is about Iolaus making a life-changing decision.
Chaos begat Ge who begat Uranus who begat Cronos who begat Zeus who begat Ares and Hercules and is really beginning to regret it.
The alternate Iolaus thinks back about his relationship with the Sovereign.
Farewell to Youth
Sometimes, Ares is his own worst enemy. Inspired by mythology.
What does the God of War give his daughter-in-law as a wedding present?
A conversation on the subject of fan writers beating up on Iolaus led my husband to suggest this very gross and disgusting story. It's his fault.
For our favorite heroes, even something as ordinary as hiccups can be dangerous. G-rated. A bit of silliness, a bit of smarm, a bit of humor.16K
After dinner conversation, with Iolaus, Hercules and Ares.
Laws of Life
A Golden Apple Challenge for November, 2002. Iolaus teaches someone the "facts of life." How the phrase "facts of life," is interpreted it up to the author. These are the non-reproductive facts in my version.
Natural Born God
In classical myth, the four children of Aphrodite and Ares were Eros, Deimus, Phobus and Harmonia. I try to imagine what Ares must have been like as a parent.
Again, falling back on classical mythology. Ares and the brass jar story.
Sharper than a Serpent's Quill
Quill-throwing monsters do not a good day make for Iolaus and Hercules.
Just something that came to me during a slow day at the office. I work alone and was having this dialogue, sort of out loud, Iolaus talking to someone holding him captive. This was the result.
Just some innocent silliness. Grecian river deities were mostly male but since these stories take place in a world with a blue-eyed Hercules, I figure I can take some liberties.
Tale of the Temple
Time passes and where are our old friends now? Herc's a god, Iolaus is old and Ares is still a troublemaker.
Tears of War
Written, with tears in my eyes, the day after I learned that Kevin Smith had passed away, February 16, 2002. 12K
