Illyandria Salara Valassiah was my original online alias. I started watching Xena: Warrior Princess in the middle of the third season. I got online in May of 1999, and the first piece of fan fiction I ever read on the internet was "Uncertain Heart" by Larissa, which was then located at Fireheart's Den. I began writing my own fic in August of 1999. Between 1999 and 2002, I wrote 28 Ares/Xena stories (some of which remain unfinished) as well as 6 poems. In 2008, I briefly returned to the fandom to write something better.

Under this alias, I was webmistress to the first large-scale fan fiction archive for the Ares/Xena pairing. Illyandria's Xena and Ares Page was created on October 30, 1999. It was later renamed Sooner Die In Your Arms, and then finally Illyandria's Enchanted Lands. In its heyday, my archive hosted over 500 stories and poems, an active forum, the Ares and Xena Writer's Club (with over 100 members), the Ares and Xena Fan Fiction Awards, graphics, episode guides, lyrics, and more.

The archive was closed without warning on December 4, 2002, due to a childish decision on my part.

A portion of the original archive was restored as AresXena.Net on May 21, 2006 and stayed online for a decade before being closed (with notice) on August 31, 2016.
