AUSXIP Announcement: 2020 AUSXIP Charity Auction Update

It is with great sadness that I announce that this year's AUSXIP Charity Auction that was to be held 23-25 September 2020 to benefit The Starship Foundation and The House of Bards will be postponed till 2021.

With COVID-19 wreaking havoc in the world, we felt it wasn't the right time for this auction to go ahead. We have held the AUSXIP Charity Auction since 2006 and have raised over $221,000 for charity in that time. We were going to hold the 25th Anniversary charity auction to celebrate Xena's 25th Anniversary but alas a coronavirus decided to spoil our fun.

The most important thing is that everyone is safe, virus free and healthy. We will be back in 2021 bigger and better than ever.

Thank you

Xena Fanfic (New!)

  • Texbard is back with a series called The Between The Lines:
    The Between the Lines series are short stories written in the first person, told from the viewpoint of one of the characters (usually Xena or Gabrielle, but occasionally others). These vignettes explore what happened in between the episodes of Xena: Warrior Princess. This story, 3:4 The Coming of Shadows, covers Xena's thoughts after the third season episode, The Deliverer. It is currently posted to my io list: (will eventually be at my Texbard website)
    The entire series, up to this story, can be found here:

Xena Fanfic (from the Archives)

  • Legends Legacy - #13 - Cupid's Arrow by T. Novan
    Every parent's worse nightmare - their child grows up and dates. What happens when Xena and Gabrielle's daughter, the new Queen of the Amazons, falls in love (with a little help from Cupid and a stray arrow)? A rollicking good story!

Adrienne Wilkinson is pleased to announce the 2020 charity raffle. You can find information and buy tickets below. Funds from the sale of raffle tickets will go to benefit a family struggling with medical costs.

The drawing will be done over Facebook live on April 26th!

ImageCharity Raffle

Thanks to the generosity of last year's raffle winner for donating the book back to further the cause, I am once again able to raffle off a signed special edition (sold out online!) version of director/photographer T.J. Scott's In The Tub: The Special Edition (Revealed Version) - Volume 1 limited edition, museum quality coffee table book. Originally sold to raise funds for breast cancer research, this special edition extends the number of the photos and also includes the nude images. The book is huge and beautiful, and the photos are SPECTACULAR. This is a photography book of actors, artists, musicians, and others using a bathtub as the common canvas for the photograph.

There will be a maximum of 125 tickets available for purchase at a price of $50 per ticket. There is no limit to the number of tickets you may purchase. Each ticket is equal to one chance. Anyone who purchases 9 tickets will automatically get a 10th ticket free! Funds from the sale of raffle tickets will go to benefit a family struggling with medical costs.

ABOUT THE BOOK: T.J. Scott has been behind the lens as director of numerous television series, including XENA and SPARTACUS. After his mother's fourth round with breast cancer found its way to her bones and lungs, T.J. decided to wage his own war on cancer the only way he knew how - by raising funds. He donated his unwavering artistic eyes and all of the actors, musicians and celebrities donated their time to this title created strictly to raise funds for breast cancer research. Each person was photographed in his/her own unique manner in a tub. The "Revealed" version of In the Tub will be limited to 1000 copies worldwide and be revealing just a little bit more in its additional fifty pages. As with the standard version, 100% of the profits will be donated to charity. (

The book is autographed by the following individuals:

  • Adrienne Wilkinson (Livia / Eve - Xena)
  • Renee O'Connor (Gabrielle - Xena)
  • Brittney Powell (Brunnhilda - Xena)
  • Dan Feuerriegel (Agron - Spartacus)
  • Steven L. Sears (not pictured in book)
  • Jacqueline Kim (Lao Ma - Xena)

I'm in COVID Isolation at the moment until my swab results come back.

I need to send out an AUSXIP Annoumcent (once again) because this issue has raised it's ugly head.

No photo description available.AUSXIP is a network of sites (which includes twitter and facebook) that is LGBT friendly and has been for the last 24 years.

There will be NO anti-LGBT on my watch on ANY site that comes under the AUSXIP banner. I accept that others have ideas different to my own, I accept that I will not agree with everything and we are all different BUT that's on the proviso those ideas and beliefs do NO HARM.

Anti-LGBT sentiments promote HATE. They do HARM and can lead to VIOLENCE (violence is not just physical violence but VERBAL as in written communication or otherwise).

If you feel that you can't abide by those rules... UNSUBSCRIBE, UNFOLLOW and go your merry way. THERE WILL BE NO ANTI-LGBT COMMENTS ALLOWED IN ANY AUSXIP site whether it's the main site, facebook, facebook group or twitter. AUSXIP is and ALWAYS be LGBT friendly. That will NEVER change. You will be banned from any AUSXIP forum if you go against these rules. If you don't like this rule... UNSUBSCRIBE. UNFOLLOW.

Thank you.

  • A Woman Called Alika by M. Parnell
    In a strange turn of events, Xena loses her memory and ends up with a family who are determined to make her a wife for their son, whilst Gabrielle is trying to find her. The story is very dark and reveals a strange way of living by the people who live in The Vale. M. Parnell has created another great story with this tale...

Star Trek: Picard

If you are watching ST: Picard and you have not seen ST: TNG (especially the two episodes that IMO are two of the best hours of TV: Best of Both Worlds 1 and 2), go and have a look at them. That will fill you in on Picard's psyche when it comes to the Borg. BOBW is PHENOMENAL TV.
