Happy 20th anniversary Xena Warrior Princess! :squee: Today is very special! Exactly 20 years ago, Xena Warrior Princess aired on tv. 

I didn't know about the series back then yet and I had no idea what an impact it would have on my life! :love: I'm not even kidding. This series has touched me like NO other in my INTIRE LIFE up till now. No movies, no live action series, no freaking anime series touched me like this one. 

It helped me distract me from stuff I was and still are stessing over, taught me life-lessons, gave me inspiration for my own creativity and even some looks on life in general. It inspired me to go on vacation on my own for the FIRST time and made me meet my dear, dear guyfriend for the first time face to face after 10 years of knowing each other. It let me meet my idol, inspiration and example Lucy Lawless in real life and showed me what an incredible, talanted, humble, kind, funny, sweet and down to Earth person she is in real life. This also goes for the rest of the cast/crew I met. Renee O'Connor, Hudson Leick, Steven L. Sears, Adrienne Wilkinson to name a few!

It taught me most to stay true to my values and morals, do the right thing and to believe everyone deserves a second chance if they're willing to change. The whole 'There's only one way to change the cycle of violence and hatred and it's through love and forgiveness' - Gabrielle

And that 'You can re-invent youself every second of the day' - Xena Also that hatred is the worst enemy of mankind, revenge is not justice and to not just play judge, jury, and executioner. As in murder is wrong. Of course I already knew that but the way it was portrayed in the series was what got to me. Something terrible happened to multiple family members of Gabby, she, the woman with the most pure and heighest morals, wanted revenge. But once she had the chance, she choose not to kill him saying 'If I kill you, you win. I become like you' That really got to me. Such a simple sentence but yet so true, hard and brave <3 She just doesn't kill out or anger and revenge, no matter what life throws at her and that is something I respect and admire very much : 3 

Also small lessons that were taught in quotes. Simple yet so true and sometimes so deep.

Some of my favorites are; 
'It's easier to believe in yourself after someone else has believed in you first ~ Gabrielle'

'For many years, I walked in Xena's shadow. I wanted to be her. She taught me something. It's warmer standing in the sun ~ Gabrielle'

'You do one thing, one good thing for no other reason than you know it's right, that's the first step ~ Xena'

'Life is eternal. It has no beginning and no end. The loving friends we meet on our journey return to us time after time. We never die because we were never really born ~ Gabrielle'

'There’s only one way to end this cycle of hatred and violence, and it’s through love and forgiveness ~ Gabrielle'

'No one made you who you are. It was always there. Question is, who would I be without you? ~ Xena'

'For me, our friendship binds us closer than blood ever could.. ~Xena'

Or conversations with so much depth in it:

'Gabrielle: When will this end? Look at Melas. I know that he's a good man, but this hate is making him an obsessed killer. Somebody has to say no to this lust for revenge.
Xena: That is so hard to do.
Gabrielle: You did it! When your village was destroyed, you were-- infected with bloodlust. But you overcame it!
Xena: I was lucky. I saw what I'd become, and I was able to turn around. But if something happened to Mother, or Hercules, or you-- I might do just the same..
Gabrielle: No--! No look, you promise me. If something happens to me, you will not become a monster. There's only one way to end this cycle of hatred, and it's through love-- and forgiveness.
Xena: Don't you go changing, Gabrielle. I like you just the way you are.'


Gabrielle: 'Do you think somewhere deep down, Callisto felt sorry for what she'd done?'
Xena: 'No'
Gabrielle: 'I think she did. I have to believe that, otherwise I can't forgive her' 

'Gabrielle: Do you get the feeling that sometimes nothing is really over? You know, it just keeps coming back around, but it's it's wearing a different face. It's the same underneath. Do you know what I mean?
Xena:  Sure. I was trapped in a cycle of violence and hatred. And no matter how I tried to break free, something always pulled me back. Until you.
Gabrielle: Xena-
Xena: No, it's true. You talk about trying to find your way but to me, you are my way.
Gabrielle: How can I be your way, when I'm lost myself?
Xena: I'm searching for answers too. But how we look for them doesn't matter as long as we look for them together. You and me.Gabrielle: *smiles and then sits next to Xena and wraps an arm around her shoulder, leaning her head of Xenas shoulder*'

'Amarice: -I don't get it.
Xena: -What? 
Amarice: -You and Gabrielle. Are you really gonna just let her pardon Brutus? 
Xena: Well, what do you suggest? That we take over the village, chain up Gabrielle and kill him? 
Amarice: Pick one. I'll go with it.
Xena: You know, Gabrielle is not the weakling that you think she is. She's seen more of life and death than you will ever know. This is just one more battle and she's got her own way of fighting it.
Amarice: By letting him go? Are you crazy? 
Xena: Her battle isn't with Brutus. It's with this *holds up her sword* and with this *holds up Amarices dagger*. With war and with hatred. And you know what? Sometimes I don't like the way she goes about it. But I've come to understand her. 
Amarice, you're so young. And when you're young ya think the answers are simple to find. You think you're gonna find them on the point of a sword? Well, you're wrong. I just pray that you live long enough to lay down your sword and look for those answers in yourself.'

To name a few quotes or conversations. No, this series is a gem, it's like no other! :love: I can go on and on and I have re-watched the series liek 3 time snow already and still enjoy it to the fullest.

So Happy anniversity Xena Warrior Princess. 
Yesterday, today and forever! 

:heart: Love you all so much! What great people and actors, producers and directors they all are! :heart:

Happy 20th anniversary Xena Warrior Princess! by 10animallover10

Before I forget, the cast/crew/fans also do stuff for the world. Like children hospitals and cancer charities. Lucy is an Eco Warrior against Global Warming and oil companies like Shell. This is a nice reaction by some of the cast/crew. Damn, 15 million! I'm s proud and happy to be a part of this incredible family of fans, cast and crew!

Thanks for the favorite! It means a lot. :)

It's nice to know that not everyone one here hates me. There's someone working round the clock to spread ridiculous rumors about me and my cousin. It's all so childish, but she's managed to convince several hundred people of it already.
