Post-Xena Convention Tweet update

I didn't go to this year's convention so I had to rely on the social media outlets to keep updated and to get that stuff out into the Xenaverse. From what I'm hearing there's a mixed back of reactions. Some of it ranges from "awesome" to a mess of con virgins asking the stupidest questions and people going ad nauseam about how Xena affected their lives in positive ways.

I tweeted at one point yesterday evening that Xenites are happiest people on earth or the saddest people on earth with the stories I was picking up off Twitter and from texts. While I could go on at length at convention etiquette, I'm going to let it pass for the time being.

Yes, Brittney and Hudson auctioned off pieces of their clothes again. I think the total ended up being around $7000 for three things. Not sure on that. At one point, Brittney said the Xenaverse has raised around $12M between the Creation conventions and various fan charity fundraisers over the last 15 years.

That said, however, there was a significant event at the convention on Sunday. The first, Tsianina Joelson (Varia) had to cancel her appearance. She was reportedly about to have a baby or something like that. So it was just Jen Sky (Amarice) and Sheeri Rappaport (Yakut) for the Amazon panel.

But that's not the most significant thing. In fact on the scale of most important things, that ranks about a 3 on the Richter Scale of fandom geekiness. I'm talking about an alternate ending to the skit that Katherine did for her stage performance on Saturday.

Before I get to that, however, Lucy and Renee were asked about the movie and what it would take to get them to do a movie and that was a "script" and "budget."

This is the skit from Saturday with Claudia Black playing Xena.

Of course, that was that and there wasn't much to it.

The main event was held until Sunday when Lucy and Renee were to appear. Both did a few minutes of solo bits before going out on stage together. Lucy promised that they would do the "proposal" scene but with an alternate ending.

So, without further adieu...

I'll leave it at that. :)
