|logansrogue||10:32 am - Resurrecting Xena Palace Chat.|
For the past few days I've been calculating the cost and efforts of opening up a small Xena Palace Chat. There used to be a huge one run by Whoosh where there were special events held and people interviewed and such. I'd like a place where different areas of fandom can come and hang out, maybe even mix a little, really get cosy, as things have been rather segmented and quiet since the show finished.
What I'd really love is your feedback and your votes. I've put up a couple of pertinent posts in my personal journal - an explanation of Phalanx and a poll regarding what you'd like out of a new Xena Palace Chat.

Xena Palace Chat Poll - what do YOU want to see? Do you want it at all?
Feel free to give me your opinions in the comment of this post too.

Xena Palace and Subtext
Hi...I'm "Argo's Friend"
I just updated my journal about this. I couldn't find how to reply to your poll. I was a part of the Whoosh Xena Palace started in 1999, or I should say, I joined the family then. Lately I have been missing the family atmosphere and support and just plain fun. So I would very much love it if you open a new one. Just let me know when and where. At one time I even conducted "Argo's Friend's Fireside Chats." I even married two people, Palace style. I used to spend hours upon hours in there just about every night. And this is perfect timing, because I'm watching Xena from the very beginning (the Herc 3-ep arc); I'm on seas 4 right now.
Someone wrote about the subtext. As I am re-watching all the eps, there's no doubt in my mind that they were lovers. But perhaps bi too because of Gabby's marriage to Perticus, and Xena's many dalliances with men: Ithica's leader, that guy from "King Con," (they didn't really do anything, but she was attracted to him), and who could forget Marcus, then later Mark Anthony in the 2nd Cleopatra ep. In watching the Xena and Gabby very closely, they often act as lovers do, minus the kissing. I did love the hickey comment by Joxer in "Been There Done That," and Gabby's face after he says it. Anyway, I'm a full subtext believer. And OMG....when Xena was in Auto's body and she let Gabby "see" her, they ended it with a kiss, even though Gabby was really kissing Auto, but the intent was definitely there because Xena had control of Auto's body, so in my mind, Xena and Gabby definitely kissed.
