Scooby Doo Meets Xena: Warrior Princess
By Guitar Warrior
Scooby and the gang arrived in Thrace as the Summer Festival was about to begin. They wanted to take a break from all the mystery solving and just enjoy some time to relax.
SHAGGY: Boy Scoob, I'm glad we decided to take the scenic route to meet the gang. We get a chance to check out all the food stands. Look at those mouth-watering fish cakes, and all those lovely pies. Ohhh . . . and my favorite, shishkabob-a-la-liver, yummy!
SCOOBY: Reah, and rook at rall the rerries and rastries. Ri'm getting rungry Raggy. Do you think re could rake a retour rand feast?
SHAGGY: Not right now. We're late to meet the gang.
SCOOBY: Rah rucks!
Scooby sneaked a small pastry from the stand with his tail, swallowing it in one gulp.
MAN: Hey, you better be able to pay for that!
SHAGGY: Of course sir, I've got the money right here . . . uh . . . ha, ha . . . ZOUKS! Freddy has all the money with him. We'll be right back, sir.
MAN: I don't think so. Do you know what I do to those who steal from me?
The man came from behind his counter and charged at Shaggy and Scooby, a club clutched tight in his hand. Grabbing Scooby by the collar, he brought the club up ready to bring it back down on top of Scooby's head. A loud battle cry came from behind him. "YII LA LA LA LA LA LA AHH!" Xena spun through the air, knocking the club out of the angry man's hand.
XENA: I wouldn't do that, if I were you.
The man glared up at the intimidating warrior.
MAN: This is none of your concern Warrior Princess!
XENA: Well, when somenone is ready to bring a club down over someone else's head, I make it my concern. What did he do that he deserves a bashing like this?
MAN: He only stole from me, that's all. What else do I need to say?
SHAGGY: Sir, we will get you the money. Please, just let us find our friends and we can pay you.
MAN: No way! You will pay me now or I will beat the amount out of you!
XENA: How much do they owe?
MAN: Two dinars.
Xena threw two dinars towards the man. He caught them and said, "Thanks."
SHAGGY: Wow! That was close. Thanks for saving our lives . . . um . . . what was your name again?
XENA: Name's Xena, and you two owe me two dinars.
SHAGGY: Xena, "The Destroyer of Nations," Xena?
Xena cringed at the remark, raising one eyebrow at him.
GABRIELLE: She isn't "The Destroyer of Nations" anymore.
Gabrielle came from behind Scooby, with a cream puff in her hand. A huge smile spread across her face.
GABRIELLE: Hi Xena, what's up?
Xena's eyebrow went down and a sideways smile tugged at her lips, as she saw whipped cream smeared all around the bard's mouth. Xena shook her head and began to laugh.
GABRIELLE: What's so funny. Did I miss something?
XENA: Sorry Gabrielle, it's just that there is more cream on your face than there is on that pastry.
Gabrielle, giving Xena a frown, finished off the pastry before turning to Shaggy and Scooby with a smile.
GABRIELLE: Who are your friends Xena?
XENA: They were in a bit of a financial jam and I helped them out. I didn't get your names?
SHAGGY: Oh yeah, my name is Shaggy and this is Scooby.
SCOOBY: You rwouldn't rhappen to rhave rany more rastries with you, rwould you?
GABRIELLE: Nope, wish I did. My name is Gabrielle.
XENA: Well Shaggy and Scooby, in case you forgot, you owe me money remember?
SHAGGY: ZOUKS! Scoob, we have to find the gang. They probably think we got lost.
XENA: Lets go then.
Shaggy and Scooby led Xena and Gabrielle through the crowd of people to where they were to meet up with the gang. They finally found them standing by one of the clothing stands. Daphne and Velma were admiring the merchandise when they heard Freddy address Shaggy.
FREDDY: Where have you two been? I've had to stop at every clothing and jewelry stand we came to!
SHAGGY: Sorry Fred, we ran into a little trouble and were delayed. Thanks to Xena, me and Scoob are still in one piece!
VELMA: Xena, "The Destroyer of Nations," Xena?
Gabrielle saw the hurt forming on Xena's face and quickly spoke up.
GABRIELLE: She isn't like that anymore. Thanks to Hercules, she works for the greater good now.
DAPHNE: Wow! Xena Warrior Princess, it's an honor to meet you. I'm Daphne, this is Velma, and sour puss over here is Freddy.
FREDDY: Hey, I'm not a sour puss. I just don't enjoy standing around while you two drool over clothing!
XENA: Yeah, I know what you mean.
Xena looked over at Gabrielle and formed that crooked grin of hers. Gabrielle did her best to frown over at Xena; however, the frown became a smile.
XENA: This is Gabrielle, my best friend and partner.
DAPHNE: Oh, I know you. You are a bard, right?
GABRIELLE: Yes, you've heard of me?
VELMA: Of course, you are mentioned quite often around the area we come from. They say you are quite good.
Gabrielle blushed slightly at the comment, breaking into a light laugh.
GABRIELLE: I can't believe you've heard of me. Thanks, but all my stories come from Xena. That's why they are good.
XENA: They are good because they come from you. They are just always about me.
Just as Gabrielle was about to make another comment, a loud roar burst through their ears. Scooby jumped into Shaggy's arms.
SHAGGY: Wh . . . What was that!?
Xena and Gabrielle ran toward the noise, with Fred, Daphne, and Velma close behind.
XENA: I'm don't know. It sounds like trouble, what ever it is!
Xena, Gabrielle, and the gang came to a screeching halt, at the sight that filled them. A flying dragon hovered over the town, breathing fire at the villagers.
SHAGGY: Oh, ho, ho, ho, were doomed! It's been nice knowing ya Scoob, buddy, 'ol pal, 'ol friend.
SCOOBY: Mh, mh, mh, reah, buy Raggy.
GABRIELLE: Oh boy! Xena, I'm assuming you have a plan?
Xena pulled her sword from its confines and ran toward the beast. The dragon saw Xena coming towards him and let out a huge roar, sending Xena flying backwads.
Gabrielle ran up to Xena and helped her up.
GABRIELLE: Are you alright Xena?
DRAGON: Listen to me carefully. If you know what's good for you, you'll end this festival right now! Don't make me come back and finish what I've started!
With that said, the dragon vanished into thin air.
DAPHNE: What was that all about?
FREDDY: I don't know. It looks like we have another mystery on our hands.
VELMA: You two super chickens can come out now. The dragon is gone.
Shaggy and Scooby popped their heads out of the barrel they had been hiding in.
GABRIELLE: Xena, what was that?
XENA: Well Gabrielle, off hand, I'd have to say it was a dragon.
GABRIELLE: YA THINK!? Xena, I know that! What was it about?
XENA: I don't know, but I intend to find out.
FREDDY: We can help. What do you want us to do?
SHAGGY: Oh . . . NO, NO, NO! Forget it! Brother, count me out! I'm not going to go off hunting down some fire breathing dragon, that I have no desire to meet up with again! I'm high-tailing it out of here before creepy shows up again!
SCOOBY: Reah, re to.
DAPHNE: Not even for a Scooby snack?
SCOOBY: Yuh, yuh, rot re!
DAPHNE: Two Scooby snack?
SCOOBY: No ray!
GABRIELLE: Please Scooby. You're not going to let these inocent people get burnt to a crisp are you?
SCOOBY: Rell . . .
GABRIELLE: For me, PLEEEASE.
Gabrielle batted her eyelashes at Scooby, while giving one of her most winning smiles. Shaggy gave Scooby a look that could kill, if he backed down.
SCOOBY: Rell . . . rokay.
Gabrielle hugged Scooby and scratched behind his ear.
GABRIELLE: Thanks Scooby.
SCOOBY: HE HE HE HE HE HE HE HE.
SHAGGY: Traitor! Some best friend you are.
SCOOBY: Rorry Raggy.
XENA: I don't know if it's such a good idea. You kids might get hurt.
FREDDY: Naw, we're used to danger.
VELMA: You might say we specialize in it.
XENA: Okay, we need to find out if anyone knows what this dragon is and why he wants the festival stopped. Fred, you, Daphne, and Velma see if anyone in the village knows anything. If you have any problems, come find me. Shaggy and Scooby will come with me and Gabrielle. We'll start on this side of town, you guys take the other. We'll meet back here in two candlemarks.
Two candlemarks later . . .
SHAGGY: Boy, am I hungry. I could eat a horse.
XENA: Don't even look at Argo!
Xena gave Shaggy "the look."
GABRIELLE: I don't think he means it literally Xena.
XENA: Well I'm not taking any chances. He and that dog seem to have more of an appetite than you. Sense we've been with them, all they do is eat. I don't know were they put it all!
Fred, Velma, and Daphne appeared around the corner and headed towards Xena, Gabrielle, Shaggy, and Scooby.
XENA: Did you find out anything?
FREDDY: No, did you?
XENA: No. No one seemed to know anything about the dragon. I don't know if I believe them or not.
GABRIELLE: Xena, why don't we ask the dragon?
XENA: Well, if he was here, I would.
GABRIELLE: Well, he is here. LOOK!
Xena turned around and saw the dragon floating above them.
DRAGON: You all seem to have a death wish!
XENA: What is it that you want?
DRAGON: I told you, I want this festival stopped! It appears I will have to finish the job I started earlier!
The dragon began his fire throwing at the village, as the peasants ran for cover.
XENA: Why do you want the festival stopped?
Xena tried to distract the dragon long enough to think of a plan.
DRAGON: Because, I hate this festival. I've lived with this festival too many years. I live in the cave above this village and can't stand this racket any longer. All the noise, noise, noise! It's enough to drive me insane!
XENA: Well, I can't argue with you on that. Can't you settle down and maybe we can think of a better solution to the problem?
DRAGON: No, I want this festival stopped right now! MY WAY!
The dragon continued his assault on the village. Xena unsheathed her sword and charged at the dragon. He swung his tail around to trip her. Xena jumped into a summersault and dodged the offending swipe. She leaped up and swung her sword at the dragon, catching him off guard. He howled in pain, as the sword caught his left wing. Gabrielle took the advantage and threw her staff at the dragon's head, hitting her mark straight on. The dragon stumbled back and appeared to be going down, but instead shot Gabrielle with a lung full of fire. Scooby jumped towards Gabrielle and knocked her away from the flames before they made contact. Xena grabbed her chakram and flung the prized weapon at the dragon, slicing the beast's throat before returning to her hand. The dragon's roar was silenced, as he burst into a cloud of dust.
VELMA: Jengkees! That was close!
Xena ran over to Scooby and Gabrielle. Scooby held Gabrielle in his arms.
XENA: Gabrielle, are you okay?
GABRIELLE: Yeah, thanks to Scooby.
FREDDY: Way to go Scooby!
DAPHNE: Yah, Scooby!
SCOOBY: Raw rucks, it ras ruthin'.
Scooby attempted to imitate Xena's battle cry.
SCOOBY: RI RA RA RA RA RA RA RAHH!!
Gabrielle and Xena burst out laughing at the nice attempt.
SHAGGY: I've said it before, and I'll say it again--what a ham!
The rest of the gang joined in on the laughter as Scooby got another hug from Gabrielle.
SCOOBY: Scooby Dooby Doo . . . HE HE HE HE HE HE HE.
