If you find a broken link or you are a bard who posts here and you need your email changed, can you please contact Shari on shaz@shaztilz.com. Shari helps me around AXIP infixing bad links and other errors that pop up.

The following story by T. Novan is an absolute beauty. It's a Uber with a twist - it's Xena an immortal (a vampire) who mourns the death of her Gabrielle until she finds the reincarnated Gabrielle in a most unlikely place. A fantastic read.

BTW His name is Horatio and he had big shoes to fill <vbg> Also Little Horatio...you could say Son Of Horatio went along too...stored away in a convenient place..his bum! Many thanks to JuneBug for carrying him over and for nlivin for the photos! And yes there is a little of sanity left in me after three years in the Xenaverse but not much! <vbg>

Just a reminder - If you haven't caught up with this series I highly recommend you do. It's a brilliant Uber series.

You can catch the latest episodes on the mailing list - get info on the mailists from http://members.xoom.com/tmuir/expchannel.html or catch the reruns on the Official Exposure Web Site

I think a clarification is in order - I've received too many emails from distressed people who think that G&J will become a couple according to the latest blurb from the interview with Rob Tapert. Folks the interviewer asked Rob if he will use Lucy and Renee in another project once Xena is finished. Rob wasn't referring to XWP but after XWP finishes after Season 6.

From a recent interview with Rob Tapert about the future and after XWP is finished.

Q. Would you want to do something else with Lucy and Renee?

Tapert: Of course I'd love to do something with any of them. I pitched a show to Renee and Ted [Raimi, who plays Joxer,] about them as a couple. A silly comedy. And they laughed, but that was more of an off-the-cuff thing.

New Xena Mailing List

I don't run this list but I like the sound of it.

This is a list for committed fans of Xena Warrior Princess. What's allowed are posts that support Xena: Warrior Princess, the Xenastaff, and their vision. Constructive criticism of the show is encouraged. Be as serious or silly as you like.

What is NOT allowed is flaming of other members, the show, the Xenastaff, or the vision of the Xenstaff. They work hellishly hard to give us great entertainment. Let's celebrate that!

6th Season Xena Confirmed by Rob Tapert
News of a 6th season has been around the xenaverse since last year. Sharon Delaney first broke the news, then Lucy stated that she would like to do a sixth season. Now comes confirmation from the man that should know - Rob Tapert. In a recent article about Cleopatra 2525 in USA Today (20 January 2000), the article stated that As for Xena, the show is in its fifth season and has an order for a sixth, but beyond that, Lawless, who recently gave birth, ''would be suicidal at the notion of a seventh,'' Tapert says. ''But we'll see what happens.'' If you would like to read the full article you can read it at:

Fanfic recommendations:
If you haven't read Love's Rendition by Tragedy88 may I suggest you do. It's a fantastic story. It's not finished yet - it's a work in progress and if you don't mind reading in parts it's
an absolute beauty of a story

Another story which I love is Hope's Path by Carrie Carr. Check them out. They are well worth the read.

new message from Lucy via Sharon Delaney

I sent Lucy and Rob a note on what fans all over the world had been doing in celebration of Julius' birth and she asked me to pass along the message below. Sharon

Time and again you guys have given generously to charities in our names, this time on behalf of Julius. Once again, you find us "gobsmacked" (Kiwi for speechless). I don't know how to thank you. I really don't. I guess I always feel so abundantly blessed in this life that I don't like to receive gifts, particularly as I know that every cent you all spend is money hard earned. The fact that you have stood by us through thick and thin and tuned in every week for 5 years is greater fidelity than many marriages enjoy. I cannot convey to you how deeply touched Rob and I are by your kindness in raising over $20,000 for charities around the world in the name of our son.

Whenever I feel myself on the horns of a moral dilemma, I try to remind myself of a maxim I wish to live by: "spread more Joy." It helps me choose the right direction even if, in the short term, it seems the least profitable option. This is what you have done.

At the risk of seeming repetitious, you inspire me.

God Bless HCNBs,

Yours truly,
Lucy Lawless

Xena News

News for Isreali Xenites (from Mikee PM)

Well there's a rumor going on that YES, the satellite broadcasting company will air Xena's fifth season around June 2000. Yesterday I Spoke with Mr. Rosenthal, Assistant CEO at YES. He said they're neither buying Xena nor negotiating a buy. Advice for Israeli Xenites: if you have friends abroad, ask them to tape Xena eps for you. At this rate we are not getting any Xena anytime soon.

I am very pleased to announce two new additions to The Bard's Corner - Linda Crist and Kerry McCommon.

Linda's first story on TBC is absolute corker! It's also an huge epic of a story that is 803k in length so settle back in a comfy chair with munchies and drinks because I'm sure you will enjoy this story as much as I did.

Kerry's first story is a Uber/SciFi piece which I enjoyed a great deal - I love scifi.

Season 5 Episode Information & Rumours

Seeds of Faith is the 100th episode - even though it's the 99th episode airred, it seems TPTB take the 100th episode as the episode that has been filmed. I don't understand this logic but that is what it's about.

Added editorial for 2nd January 2000

I have archived December's what's new - it's not a Y2K bug (although that theory is very funny)

The Sydney Morning Herald yesterday had an article on strong women and the impact of tv has had on how women are portrayed. It was a thoroughly fascinating article - it had a huge Xena picture but no mention of Xena in the article! What a shame.

UK Xenites: Season 5 starts in the UK in March - Many thanks to Ginj for that news

The following report is from Liz:

Lucy was on for about 5 seconds - one of a series of clips by famous NZers describing their dreams for this year/millennium. Her 'dream' was for Daisy to marry Prince William. "Because we're royalty too - in our own funny way." And the smirk she delivered this with can only be described as evil. (She was in full XWP clobber - the OLD outfit is back!!!! Well, the brass swirls looked a little darker, maybe silver? but there were those armband thingies and the sword. And everything.)
