Hello Everyone:
I belong to a group of Xenites that dedicate some of our time to activities that will help to preserve a space in the Xenaverse. We have translated the www.xwpvs.com and www.xwpsubtextvs.com virtual seasons and are currently translating some of great fanfic works by Advocate, TNovan, and several other great writers (with permission of course). If you are interested in maintaining this space alive by working with us by translating or planning future projects, we are looking for new members for our group.

We only ask for some minor prerequisites, which are as follows:

You must posses at least a 40% understanding of Spanish. It is not necessary to be able to dominate the language in order to translate since there will be someone available to help with language problems. (This would be a great way to improve you language skills).
You must posses a great desire to preserve the Xenaverse. You must be able to dedicate some time to translating a few pages of text that would be distributed on a weekly basis and translated within a specified time frame.

Please remember this is all done for fun and to preserve the Warrior Spirit in all of us. If you would like more information you may contact us at xenacentro@hotmail.com

Borderline Charity Merchandise Announcement:
For those of you who are on my chat list or updates list , you know I post in parts.

Some crazy friends of mine latched onto Part 12C of Borderline , ran with it, and came up with a graphic. From there, they created a shop at Cafepress and placed the graphic on a variety of items. All profits from Borderline products will be split between two charities, both benefiting victims of Hurricane Katrina. The charities are The North Texas Food Bank, and Noah's Wish.

The North Texas Food Bank has been around for a long time. Some 25,000 victims of Katrina are being housed in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, and the food bank is helping feed them. They have pledged that 100% of funds ear-marked for Katrina will go directly to help victims. Noah's Wish is an organization that goes into disaster areas to rescue animals and pets.

So, enjoy Part 12C of Borderline , and then check out the merchandise at the Cafepress shop.

Thanks!

Welcome to two new bards entering the Academy of Bards! Lissa and JLNicky!

The Journey of Love and Life by Lissa [X&G/Alt/unfinished]
Set afterSuccession in the beginningofSeason 5 Xena and Gabrielle's homes are being threatened by war, and Athena comes to their rescue, this is a first time story that becomes a series about the love and life of Xena and Gabrielle after the events of the first few episodes of Season 5, yes Xena still ends up pregnant and there are still some pivotal things in Season 5 that must happen, but this takes their travels too different places and answers a lot of questions that I think were left unanswered by the series.

Sydney's Serenade by JLNicky [alt/über/complete]
Sydney's younger brother Sammy is a radio contest winner of a week long trip to stay at JT and the Stars home in Nashville, Tennessee. Sydney takes the announcement calmly in stride until she is given a CD to listen to a few songs from the band. Suddenly the years fall away and she is once again mesmerized by that sensual, husky voice crooning out lyrics of love. Justine Salinger has returned. Too bad their romantic encounter when they were younger had ended so painfully. Well at least now Sydney gets to see how Justine grew up. Good Lord that sexy voice!

The Lesson by MerryAngel [complete/classic/alt]
This idea came from another writer's story and the idea is used/expanded upon with her permission. Gabrielle tries to teach the "Warrior Spies", how to make love to Xena so that she screams like a banshee. If you haven't read Hercules and Iolaus: Warrior Spies by Katie Burnett, you might want to do so. This idea came from her ending of this story. It can be found at the this address: http://www.academyofbards.org//fanfic/k/katieburnett_warriorspies.html

Third Time Lucky by Joanne Boyle [unfinished/classic/general]
This story is set between the fifth season episodes "Succession" and "Animal attraction". Xena and Gabrielle are enjoying a quiet moment between battles, but little do they know some unfinished business is about to interupt this brief moment of peace. Ares makes his presence felt, as does an old adversary. Gabrielle gets stoned (again!).

Announcement
from Cephalgia

I am extremely proud to announce the publication of a collection of my short stories by Blue Feather Books. It's entitled "Pearl Had to Die" and features that story and a host of others, including the Unlimited Sexual Favors stories, written with MJ. Also in the collection is the Swollen Bud Award winner, "Sin City Confidential," a story that premiered here on the Academy in a bard's contest. The books will be available first at BardCon in Orlando, so be sure to stop by and chat with me there.

Revised Ending by Cephalgia [complete/original/alt]
There are lessons to be learned in the afterlife and Becca Bean's journey is designed to help her learn them. With a very familiar face to assist her, she might just survive her death.

Those Three Days by Erin O'Rielly [unfinished/original/alt]
Winnie James' life was finally taking professional shape when she got her first big break...a client of her own. Now, all she needed was to have that someone special in her life to share it with. Her search for love lead her to three days that changed her life. After that nothing would ever be the same again.

September 2nd, 2005

Announcement

A lot of people have asked about certain people in the Xenaverse. We are happy to try and make sure everyone is ok and to let people know if anyone needs help. I have a few ways to accomplish these things. By the way, I have heard from Ali Vali and she's safe. She has three days worth of clothes and seems in good spirits. Heck, she's even considering rewriting a story. She's a trooper.

We've heard of someone who has posted stories on the Academy and is a published writer and most importantly someonee who is helping out others in need with shelter, etc. If you can, send goods such as diapers, pedialyte, non-perishables, toiletries and clothing. Apparently, the big need is clothes, water, soap, and food that doesn't need to be cooked. These are the true heroes in this horrible mess.

Here's the info -

Robin Alexander
13623 Prairie Lane
Walker La. 70785

And another hero doing the same thing -

Tina Peak
403 N College St E
Denham Springs La 70726

Send anything you can spare, clothes you don't use, sheets that were going to be given away...anything.

Keeping Track of a Our Xena Family after Hurricane Katrina

Hurricane Katrina has blazed a trail of devastation throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. Across the Gulf Coast, Katrina engulfed thousands of homes and decimated the landscape in what could become the most destructive storm in U.S. history.

Many of our friends have been affected. This section of AUSXIP is to keep track of those friends, to alert others of ways that we can help and to do our little bit for The Greater Good.

There is a Xenite Safe List for those that have checked in with friends that they are okay

There is a Xenite Waiting Info - we haven't heard from these people so far

If you know of anyone still missing or if friends have contacted you please let us know.

There is also an announcement list where you can subscribe to at yahoogroups
