New Uber FanFic - Guardian Angel by D

Guardian Angel By D
(Uber / Complete)

Prologue

Everyone has heard of guardian angels – we probably have the best PR department in the world. On the other hand, they're also very good about keeping the true nature of our job out of the press, so to speak. Oh, don't misunderstand – some guardian angels do exactly what is advertised. That is the job of a few... to uphold the myth that we are there for the protection of mankind. Most guardian angels don’t protect – they offer hope to the scared and the lonely and the wounded. But for a few even that is not their primary function.

No, for a very few guardian angels, their job is to be there at a crucial time in their charge's life. They are supposed to guide and help a person make the right choice. Only sometimes, they’re not in the right place at the right time and that’s where I come in.

My job is clean up. When the guardian angel misses their opportunity, my job is to determine if the charge can be salvaged in spite of the guardian screw-up or if there is another choice that can be made or another opportunity offered.

This is the story of one such charge.

The Hub Cancels Australian Xena Convention

Received the following from my friend Dave in Melbourne and it's rather unhappy news. The Hub Productions Xena Convention which was going bring out Hudson Leick and Danielle Cormack to Australian fans. It seems they were trying to get Lucy as well but that didn't work out due to Lucy's schedule.  Unfortunately for fans instead of going ahead with the convention with Hudson, Danielle and other guests, The Hub has decided to cancel this event. There is going to be quite a few people who would be very disappointed in this turn of events.

Here is the email that they sent to everyone regarding the cancellation

If you haven't already heard, we're sorry to have to tell you that our Xena event is being cancelled. Despite her and our best efforts to make the scheduling work, the lovely lady who was to be the crown jewel of our Xena event, Lucy Lawless, is unable to make it to Australia at this time. With that being the case, and considering the availability of our other intended guests and other factors, we feel we cannot go ahead with at this time. It's a sad decision we've had to make, because we're not sure we're going to be able to make a Xena work in the future.

With regards to your tickets, there are three possible courses of action you may choose from. Firstly, as we are cancelling the event, you are entitled to a full refund, including any and all transaction fees applied at our end (if you opt for this, we will discuss your options for refunds subsequently). Secondly, you can use your ticket price as a credit towards any other Hub event (though if there is a difference in price, you will still need to cover that). Finally, you can request we hold your payment as a credit towards any future event. Please advise us of your preferred course of action at your earliest convenience.

Please note, you may experience a delay in response until mid-next week, as we are out of state for an event from Thursday. Our apologies in advance.

We look forward to seeing you at an event in the future.
Regards,

The Hub Productions

Renee's Two Day Photo Op at 2012 Xena Convention

Image

The following has been posted on the official 2012 Xena Convention page on Creation Entertainment. We all know that Renee likes to add something special to photo ops (dressing up in various Gabrielle costumes). It seems the 2012 Xena Con will feature her in TWO outfits.

Personally I'm hoping my favourite Gabrielle outfit makes it's return: BGSB and the brown skirt with her original staff.

Check out the notice below

RENEE O'CONNOR: $70 (SATURDAY AND SUNDAY, Renee has graciously agreed to wear a different super-cool outfit each day. It is always a surprise to see what she has planned for her many fans!).

Note that you are free to use your Renee photo op tickets either day you choose.
