Why are fans called "Xenites"

Beats me :) It's a name like Trekker or Trekkie. Followers of Xena :)

I Have A Script I Would Like To Send To Renaissance Pictures - can I send it to you?

What is the GabDrag?

The Gabdrag (I think the term originated with Handpuppet but I could be wrong) is what happens when a certain warrior princess ties one bard by the ankles and drags her halfway across grass, sand, firepits etc. Not nice. The Gabdrag was first seen in the episode "The Bitter Suite". A variation to the Gabdrag was the XenaDrag seen in a few episodes (the dragging was not done by Gabrielle).

What does BGSB mean?


That wonderful piece of Grecian clothing that Gabrielle wore in Season 2 and 3. It's affectionally known as the Billious Green Sports Bra. It met it's end in the episode "If The Shoe Fits" where Xena used it to tie up a smelly bad guy. The top was never the same again. Gabrielle seemed to own just one BGSB.

Are Xena and Gabrielle REALLY lovers?

Depends on how you see them. If you want to believe that they are like sisters...by all means you can believe that but I've never kissed my sister or friend the way Gabrielle and Xena have...or taken baths together...died for each other, came back to life for each other...you get the idea.

Yes Xena and Gabrielle were lovers.

Back to Top

What Proof Do You Have That They Are Lovers?

Rob Tapert says so. Lucy says so. Renee says so and if you still don't believe the creator of the show, the stars of the show and everyone who cares to comment about the relationship...how about checking out the The Subtext FAQ which is wonderfully maintained by Michael Martinez. Even after all of that you still don't believe...sorry can't help you.

What Type of Xena FanFic Is Available?


It's Xena & Gabrielle fiction based on the timeline of the series

Mel & Janice

It's about Xena & Gabrielle descendents Janice "Mad Dog" Covington (Gabrielle descendent) and Melinda Pappas (Xena descendent). The only time they appeared in the series was the episode "The Xena Scrolls"


The essence of the characters transplanted in other time periods but still retaining the characters of Xena and Gabrielle.


Tales of the evil warlord Xena who conqueors the world. What would have happend had not Hercules changed Xena. First seen in the Hercules episode "Armageddon Now Part 2". Gabrielle is a rebel.

Post FIN Fic

Tales after the events of the series ending episodes "A Friend In Need". Fans finish the series the way it should have finished.


Based on the Season 6 episode "Send in the Clones" - Xena and Gabrielle are cloned by an evil Alti. The two clones set off on their adventures in the 21st Century at the end of the episode.

I heard Renee O'Connor wrote a song about Xena? Where Can I Find the Words / Audio file?

The Gabrielle Rap
Written and Performed by Renee O'Connor

There's a six-foot woman
And her name is Xena
You can bet you've never
Met nobody meaner!

She wears a lot of leather
Armor made of brass
If she flips in your directon
You can bet she'll kick your ass!

'My best friend,' I call her
It's a gift I'll always know
With her I fight the baddies
And hope the peace remains aglow.

You can download the audio file from AUSXIP Renee O'Connor

What does AFIN or FIN mean?

Ah the dreaded FIN. FIN or AFIN stands for A Friend In Need. A Friend in Need Part 1 and 2 were the series ender for the wonderful show. It did not go well for the Warrior Princess. A lot of the fans were gutted by the ending of having Xena die and leaving Gabrielle alone to sail off into the sunset talking to Xena's ghost and hugging her ashes. Not a nice way to end things BUT there is hope. Rob Tapert has heard the cries of fans and moves are afoot to have a Xena movie to bring Xena back from the dead. Let's hope he succeeds. To see more about the Xena Movie go to the AUSXIP Xena Movie Site

Will There Be A Xena Movie and If So When?

No. There will not be a Xena movie starring Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor. Read Rob Tapert interview where he says there will not be a Xena movie

Updated: There has been chatter/wishful thinking from Lucy about a Xena movie or Series but it hasn't progressed from there. You can follow all the news by going to the AUSXIP Xena Resurrection site

Was Julius Tapert (Lucy and Rob's first son) in Xena as Baby Eve?

No. Several magazines claim that Julius was used for Baby Eve but that isn't true. Lucy and Rob are very protective of their son. Daisy Lawless (Lucy's daughter) was in an episode of Hercules as an extra.

Josh Becker (writer and director for several Xena episodes) addressed this issue on a Q&A on his site:

"Xena's child, Eve, is in this episode. As the old expression goes, the things you want to avoid in filmmaking are: babies, animals, and shooting on the water. We had two babies so that when one got cranky we could replace it with the other one. And yes, I've met Julius Tapert several times. He is a very pleasant, quiet, sleepy baby, so far."

Renee also mentioned that several babies played Eve in a New York Times article 22 February 2000

"There are babies everywhere,'- says Xena: Warrior,  Princess a,, star Renee O'Connor, referring to the impact of Eve. newborn daughter of Xena (Lucy Lawless), who arrived a few weeks back as an immaculate conception in the episode "God Fearing Child:-"We've had about four different babies playing this one character.

"It's really amazing," she adds. "I don't think that I will ever need to have children of my own, because they me around me all the time."

Sharon Delaney (Official Xena Fan Club) recently said:

There were eleven different babies used to play her -- a mix of boys and girls -- Julius was not one of them.  I know there were eleven because I had to get clearance on all of them whenever we used a photo with one of the babies in it

What is the AUSXIP Charity Auctions?

AUSXIP Charity Auction is a site dedicated to raising money for The Starship Foundation which is AUSXIP's official charity (Lucy Lawless) and other charities associated with Renee O'Connor, Adrienne Wilkinson and others. The site is 100% free and 100% of the money goes to the nominated charity without fees being involved. Donations to the Starship Foundation are done via their online donation form and bypasses AUSXIP. We are responsible for posting the items after payment has been made.

The idea was born in December 2006 when we held our first auction which was a great success, thanks mainly to the wonderful support of Xena, Lucy Lawless and Renee O'Connor fans.

Since then we have conducted this auction on an annual basis around March every year. We also host auctions for The Official Adrienne Wilkinson Fan Club Charity Auction and other fundraising events.

In it's short life, AUSXIP Charity Auctions has raised over $50,000 USD.

If you wish to hold an auction where 100% of the money goes to the nominated charity, please email MaryD  with all the details.
