Last year we created a special MEN OF XENA: WARRIOR PRINCESS CALENDAR and, due to popular demand, we present this year another calendar. Not just ANY calendar, however. This is the GRRLFRIENDS edition. The guys got their turn, now it is the gals.
Xena has many friends, and lots of them are girls (or at least were some part of their lives): some are mortal enemies, some are bosom buddies, some are relatives, and still some are complete accidents of nature. There is a whole universe of womenfolk out there, who have had some type of contact with the warrior princess.
About six months ago the membership of the International Association of Xena Studies voted on their favorite grrlfriends of Xena. Here are the results in order of the most popular to the dregs of society (ties are indicated separated by a slash):
These received one vote each:
- Lao Ma
- Janice Covington
- Melinda Pappas/Tara
- Alt Universe Xena
- Autolycus as an Amazon
- Bacchae Gabrielle
- Gabrielle of REMEMBER NOTHING
- Kym Taborn
- Salmoneus in drag
- Three naked Gabrielles
- Widow Twanky
The first twelve are immortalized by our monthly calendar and by the exclusive interviews we got from them. We even had to send our reporter to the Land of the Dead for three of those lucky gals. You can only imagine the expense account request. The others not making the month assignment cut will just have to remain in Purgatory Hell (or is it Eternal Waiting in the Calendar Land of the Unpictured -- makes you wonder what the Holy word for them are, 'cheese'?). We have assigned each of the lucky twelve, in order of popularity, a month so you can ponder the wonders of THE GRRLFRIENDS OF XWP throughout the whole year.
We have also added dates to this calendar. Some of the dates are the birthdays of current staff members here at WHOOSH. Feel free to honor these over-worked, non- paid drones to fandom. They work like busy little worker bees making sure that you get your monthly WHOOSH fix come good or bad.
Other dates included are birthdays of fans that were sent to us as well as important fandom dates. We sent out a plea for dates a while back and we have incorporated the dates that were fit to print. Also, we realize that we have missed many important fandom dates.
To access the calendar, please click on the month's name or the widdle picture next to it. You can print from there.
