"But I want you to know that I still think you are the best thing that ever happened to me. You gave my life meaning and joy, and you will be a part of me forever."
Xena Warrior Princess alphabet | G - Gabrielle
Wow can we talk about that middle left and the bottom right because WOW those gifs summarize the tragedy of Gabrielle’s entire arc. That middle one is the first time she killed anyone and it was partially tricked and partially intended but she is FREAKED. She knows she crossed a line, and the fact that she crossed it knowingly terrifies and disgusts her. Compare to that last gif two seasons later and she is ritually smearing herself with blood, deriving power from death. Her heroic journey runs parallel to Xena’s, but in reverse: as the show goes on Xena stabilizes and begins to lose her lust for blood, while Gabrielle acquires it.
This fucking show, I cannot.
^ I wish you would write about Xena forever.

“But you’re my source, Gabrielle. When I reach down inside myself and do things that I’m not capable of, it’s because of you. Don’t you know that by now?”
