Xenaverse News

  • The SciFi Channel has removed Xena from it's lineup. Starting from next week that old faithful Star Trek will be back.
  • The Norse Trilogy won an award from Sci Fi IGN for Best Episode for 2000
    "Best Episode: The Ring Arc, Xena: Warrior Princess. For sheer audacity, this three-part arc (consisting of The Rheingold, The Ring, and Return of the Valkyrie) wins, hands down. Not only does it incorporate outrageous, epic twists into an already epic show, but it also throws in wild cards like Beowulf, Grendel, and a subtexty twist on the Sleeping Beauty legend (guess who gets to awaken snoozing Gabrielle with a smooch? Mmm hmm). The whole shebang is akin to a bigass Xena movie, and it's a fine, emotionally-wrenching mark to leave on the show's final season. Here's to hoping that Xena and Gabs ride off into the sunset in similarly b*tt-kickin' style."

Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race Update - Xena is leading the pack as of last night. Xena is crewed by an all woman crew and they are doing quite well. They are headed into some very rough weather ahead as they race to Hobart.

Today is Boxing Day in Australia...

Boxing Day is a holiday celebrated in Britain, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada. It falls on December 26, which is also St. Stephen's Day. The public observance of Boxing Day takes place on the following Monday if December 26 falls on a Saturday or Sunday. The traditional celebration of Boxing Day included giving money and other gifts to charitable institutions, needy individuals, and people in service jobs. The holiday may date from the Middle Ages (A.D. 400's--1500's), but the exact origin is unknown. It may have begun with the lords and ladies of England, who presented Christmas gifts in boxes to their servants on December 26. Or it may have begun with priests, who opened the church's alms (charity) boxes on the day after Christmas and distributed the contents to the poor

Lucia's Cartoon Connection

Lucia has been rather busy of late and didn't have time to do the new Little Xena and Gabrielle. She had a very good reason - she was doing the illustrations for my novel Out of Darkness <g> They are superb! Lucia has drawn 10 pieces for the book.

  • Added Little Legacy - Little Xena and Gabrielle latest adventure inspired by Melissa Good's episode Legacy. It's so cute :-)

Kodi Wolf has a new site - but it won't be this address for very long since she has also got a new domain!

15 December -

TODAY IS AXIP'S 4TH BIRTHDAY!

It's also a good time to find out what will happen to AXIP once the show ends.
As everyone knows Xena will finish it's Sixth Season in 2001 and thus end a period where we witnessed the birth of a warrior princess, her soulmate Gabrielle and their adventures. What does this mean for AXIP? AXIP will change. How? Once XWP stops airring, AXIP will morph into two sites:

The Lawless Files - to track the career of Lucy Lawless

and

The ROC File - to track the career of Renee O'Connor

AXIP will still be active with The Bard's Corner, Artwork and News but the main focus will be on TLF and TRF.

A Xenaverse bard makes a comeback and I am thrilled to see Jules Mills back and her excellent series The Nanoverse with Grace and Dana.

Speaking of great fanfic -  CiarŠn Llachlan Leavitt has started  a new novel based on her popular characters Jae Cavanaugh and Reed Lewis. It's called Blow the House Down and it's a thriller more than romance but I think there's some of that as well :-) I've read the first chapter and it's fantastic! Check it out

  • Xena's Last Fight - NZ Herald - 7 December 2000
  • Here's an interesting article from The Sydney Morning Herald about
    Why is it that women are always singled out to foster a sense of community? Part of the article says: There has never been good evidence that the shows that children watch affect behaviour. Even extremes such as pornography and excessive violence have never really been proved beyond doubt to affect children's behaviour. So why do we think Ally and Carrie are more influential as role models (bad) than the strong heroines (good) of Xena: Warrior Princess, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Or does Wheeldon's gloomy view of popular culture analyse these shows as merely encouraging teenagers into witchery and covens?

Meet Michelle St. Jean, on the run from her old life and searching for a new one. Learn about Dr. Bobbi Waszinski, a woman who has been apart of enough tragedy that it has changed her, seemingly irrevocably, making her devoted to her patients-- giving them so much that there is nothing left for herself or others. Minnesota is a small world for them, and Ivanhoe is even smaller, where they literally run into each other.

CARES - Safe And Sound Appeal

  • The t-shirt Lucy signed for Safe and Sound Appeal Charity that we auctioned off on Ebay went for $1477.

As you may have heard, the sixth season will be the last. I can't believe six years have gone by so quickly. Since the announcement was made, people have been writing asking how they can say thanks to Lucy, Renee, Rob and everyone who helped make the show. If you have some thoughts, you can send a letter via email or regular mail -- outback@primenet.com   or 100 W. Broadway #1200, Glendale, CA 91210. We'll make sure the cast and crew know just how much this show has meant to you. I'm also going to print some of them in upcoming newsletters and on the fan club web page.

  • Kevin Smith is not a body for hire <g> The following is from Tracey at Kiwi Attic
    There is a biscuit manufacture here that makes a brand of bikkies called "toffee pops". In their TVC currently they star a famous NZ All Black (thats a rugby player) and he appears as part of a fantasy dream a woman is having, there is no dialogue just this "hunk" on screen undressing (need I say more !!!)....... the company decided it was time to change the celeb in the commercial and so asked the NZ public to vote for the new "Toffee Pop hunk". Well they voted KEVIN..... and the company approached him and asked him to "name his price" but he said NO! Robert Bruce ( Kevin's agent ) is quoted as saying " Kevin is a talented actor singer and comedian -not just a body!!"........ the full story is in today's newspaper http://kiwiattic.bizland.com/Kevin/KSsundaynews031200.htm
