Please note: There is a discussion on Xena FanFic Chat on FB where Vivian Darkbloom has posted the following and asking if REBECCA HALL has passed away:
Hi all, I have a question concerning a fic writer from long ago: is Rebecca Hall (“Wildfire” “Heaven Down Here”) still alive? I thought I’d heard a while back that she had passed away. The reason I ask is that I think someone other than her has posted her stories to Archive of Our Own (she is sort of credited but I am seriously side-eyeing this)

Black Panther Movie
- From Steven Sears: As someone who has worked in TV/Film for over thirty years, and being told continually by marketing that minority-led and women-led films can’t succeed, I’m loving the Blank Panther success and Wonder Woman before it. LINK
- Hollywood Reporter:
#BlackPanther is Marvel’s most feminist movie yet
- Women turned out in force to see
#BlackPanther, making up 45% of all ticket buyers

Renee is celebrating her birthday today and we can too – AUSXIP Talking Xena has a thread open for you to send Renee birthday wishes!
The Xenaverse cried together as one collective being when Kevin died in an accident in China in 2002. We rallied round his family and supported them in various ways. One of the things this fandom excels in is love. Love for our fellow fans and love for our Xena cast and crew.
‘Say not in grief ‘he is no more’ but live in thankfulness that he was’
We Miss You Kevin.

Happy Galentines Day (HUH?)
I actually had to look that up because I had no clue what
#GalentinesDay was. Galentines Day is February 13th, the other half of valentine’s day, when you celebrate your love for your lady friends! This was started by Amy Poehler’s Parks & Recreation character Leslie Knope. I don’t watch the show so I had no clue. Fascinating!
Since we happen to have two of our favourite lady friends in Xena and Gabrielle
