The World Loses An Extraordinary Woman...

Mira Furlan, 'Lost' and 'Babylon 5' Actress, Dies at 65It's with great sadness I report that one of my favourite actors who I adored has passed away. Mira Furlan has passed away.
 She was only 65 years old and it has not been reported as to how she passed.

Mira was Ambassador Delenn from Babylon 5; one of the best tv shows ever made. The very first page I ever created was in tribute to Mira's character Delenn and Captain John Sheridan called "The John and Delenn Information Page". My sincerest condolences to her family and friends. The world has lost an incredibly gifted soul.

The last twitter post on Mira's official site said:

"I look at the stars. It's a clear night and the Milky Way seems so near. That's where I'll be going soon. "We're all star stuff', I suddenly remember Delenn's line from Joe's script.
Not a bad prospect. I am not afraid. In the meantime, let me close my eyes and sense the beauty around me. And take that breath under the dark sky full of stars.
Breathe in. Breathe out. That's all."

Xena Fan Fic - From The Archives

  • Dark Comes The Morning by Melissa Good
    This is truly an epic tale and I mean EPIC. Melissa Good weaves a tale of a danger to Greece from a mysterious medallion worn by a warlord intent on capturing Greece and the Warrior Princess. All the characters that many Missy Good fans have come to enjoy reading about are back in this novel and get set for one final bloody battle for the greater good! An excellent story. Well worth the time and effort.
  • Deal of a Lifetime (The) by T. Novan
    This is number ten in the Legends Legacy series by TN. Xena makes a deal with Ares to save the life of her granddaughter. Xena at her best - dealing with Ares.

  • Podcast: Invisible Women - Stories of WW2 Espionage Episode: Propaganda
    On her wedding day Liliana discovered that she was not only saying yes to marriage, but also to the perilous work of a wireless operator in one of the first resistance cells in France.

  • Beneath A Scarlet Sky by Mark Sullivan
    Based on the true story of a forgotten hero, the USA Today and #1 Amazon Charts bestseller Beneath a Scarlet Sky is the triumphant, epic tale of one young man's incredible courage and resilience during one of history's darkest hours. Pino Lella wants nothing to do with the war or the Nazis. He's a normal Italian teenager-obsessed with music, food, and girls-but his days of innocence are numbered.

Xena Fan Fic - From The Archives

  • Crossing the Fire by Linda Crist
    Gabrielle ponders what went wrong in her relationship with Xena as she watches her warrior play with baby Eve. Xena also wonders what happened and with a little help from the Goddess of Love, a mystery is solved. Xena and Gabrielle finally have that talk about what went wrong in their relationship. This is a beautifully written story. This easily goes into my favorite story folder.
  • Denouement by Bel-wah
    A story set just after the events of When Fates Collide - we read the thoughts of both Xena and Gabrielle. Beautifully written.

Xena Fan Fic - From The Archives

  • The Conqueror's Stone by DJWP
    I wasn't a big Conqueror story kind of gal and very few conqueror stories really interested me but when DJWP wrote this absolutely fantastic piece, I was overjoyed. It's a brilliant piece  It's a Xena and Conqueror story rolled into one. That is OUR present Xena and the Conqueror. Very interesting.
  • Creative License by Ella Quince
    A bard's stories about a mighty warrior princess is spread throughout the land but there is a slight problem - the warlord Xena isn't at all like the stories! A fascinating look at what it might have been if a bard had made up stories about a hero that would change the world with her courage.
