The original order was:
- Many Happy Returns
- Friend in Need (1 and 2)
- Soul Posession
- When Fates Collide
It makes much more sense if you see the last episodes in that order <3
13 years of pain over this decision
Ikr?? That’s why i saw it again in that order, then my soul is in peace~
That kinda explains the ending of When Fates Collide… they just sorta ride off together without a word. All that craziness had been negated. Man, I wish it had ended up that way.
And that they’d left that damn kiss in in When Fates Collide.
this still hurts me somehow. like… Xena stopping Gabrielle from putting the ashes in the fountain is the most horrible thing and will hurt me until the end of time
knowing that it’d be Caesar who brought her back would be.. ….. .. unless they planned on changing that whole death element.
I don’t know, I just don’t like it. the only things I can stand out of AFiN are “If I only had 30 seconds to live, this is how I’d want to live them - looking into your eyes” (please kill me, someone just end it, I can’t handle it) and the kiss. I wish they’d taken those things and put them in WFC (/left the original fucking kiss in, obvi) and that FiN just plain didn’t exist. It’s been weeks and I STILL feel like… scarred for life.
Believe me, all of those who are Xenites from heart didnt take afin as canon and/or real. Its just… A BIG NO.
Yeah, like… I imagine even just finding her body like that would be INCREDIBLY TRAUMATIC/SCARRING. I can’t even FATHOM the number of ways seeing that would fuck her up. But for them to throw out the entire “death=/=redemption” thing and also the “I’m done paying for my past, my responsibility is you now” thing and have Xena DO THAT TO GABRIELLE knowing how much it would hurt her? no, just no. it’s OOC in addition to being lazy writing and just awful.
I’m a new Xenite so it still just HURTS SO MUCH ARGH ;___;
amen, sister. Get it out. Deep breaths. We feel your pain
I was saving watching AFIN since I could only find Part One online and so I watched it on a friend’s netflix and god I wish I didn’t. I hated it! I mean you’re right, they threw out all those things that Xena had learnt. Even so, how in the world were those deaths her fault? I mean yeah, she did blow/spit the fire of the two men who then ran around instead of STOP DROPPING AND ROLLING ON THE GOD DAMNED SNOW!!! I mean seriously, what was going on through their heads. “OH NO! I’M ON FIRE! WHAT DO I DO?!?! HEY LOOK, THERE IS SOME BUILDINGS, LET’S GO IN THOSE TO TRY TO PUT OURSELVES OUT! At least our feet are nice and cold and wet from the snow! Huh!”
And those towns people CAME after her! She didn’t just pick a fight! She even said that she tried ignoring them but then they attacked her. THEY were the ones who brought the fire and attacked her. She was just defending herself. They died because they attacked the wrong person.
Also when that man says how many people died, just wow. 14,000! But how even?! I mean I doubt they were all up on top of each other with multiple floored buildings! And if you look at the fire, it looks like it started with just ONE building on fire and those two guys running around. Yeah the fire would have spread, but there is NO way that could have killed that many people and I doubt that 40,000 is even a probably number. I mean where did they get that number?! I doubt they were able to count EVERY. SINGLE. LAST. BODY! Especially if they were burnt! Even with the wind I doubt there could be that much damage. I mean, I looked it up a little- To guess around what time Xena was around, I figured why not look at a villain that was actually known in history, Julius Caesar. He was born 100 BC. I then found this estimated population of Japan chart of Japan from wikipedia and it is estimated that in 200 BC the population was around 100,000-200,000 lived. In 1AD it is estimated to be around 300,000, so I’d like to guess that there were around 175,00 people living in Japan around the time of Xena. So if that is so, how the fuck do 40,000 people die and she doesn’t even know of it until over 30 years later?!?! That would be close to Japan’s estimated population of the time! I think SOMEONE would have spread the word!! She probably would have even heard of it when she was in Qin(or is it Chin?) (Estimated chart from- http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Demographic_history_of_Japan_before_Meiji_Restoration )
Also about the soul things, how the fuck is that Xena’s fault. I mean ultimately, yeah, kinda…She did teach Akemi the pinch. But she didn’t think that she would use it on her father! I mean, who can expect that?! Xena is good, but she isn’t that good-or at least not then. Akemi was the one who killed her father and caused him to become Lord Yodoshi, not Xena. The only thing Xena is to be blamed for in this episode is trying to ransom Akemi in the first place. That is it.
And let us not forget about Gabrielle’s part. I mean, Gabrielle has proven that she can do a lot! She destroyed the Fate’s web for Pete’s sake! And she only knew Xena for what, a few days?! Yeah, Xena did save her life twice and she did get the visions of the past, but even so, you never know what that is. There is no way I can see Gabrielle just allowing Xena to remain dead. I see her feigning an agreement to let Xena stay dead, then once Xena wasn’t expecting it, WHOOPSIE! YOUR ASHES FELL INTO THE WATER! MY BAD! SORRY SOULS! I’m no Gabrielle and I certainly probably don’t love Xena in the way Gabrielle does, but if I went through all of that- went through all those trials to get the body(don’t forget seeing it in such a condition), there is NO WAY I’d let Xena just die. Gabrielle has a lot of emotional strength, so I’m calling bull on that.
Sorry for the rant
not really.But I just felt like saying it and I will never accept the existence of AFIN! In my head, Xena would have died with Gabrielle peacefully on their twentieth wedding anniversary.
Agreed, friend. Agreed.
Gabby being like “how ‘bout no” and quickly dumping the ashes in anyway is my headcanon/personal fanfic canon/THE MOST LOGICAL THING. Gabby is a spitfire, she stands up for herself and what she believes is right even when it means standing up TO XENA. There’s no fucking way she’d just lie down and take that.
I definitely see Gabrielle using the “Some things are more important than the greater good” like here. I mean, XENA herself taught her that! If course she would remember that. So yeah, screw AFIN.
Do you ever have that outfit you wear so often you think
"Yes, this is the outfit I’d be drawn in everyday if I was a cartoon"
REGINA IS HELLA GAY!
Now that you have met my demands, I can reveal the surprise!
John Dilworth and Cartoon Network will be making two half hour Courage the Cowardly Dog cartoons in 2015. One will be a Halloween special, and the other will be for the winter season.
More updates on that eventually!
