I mean, you’re talking about a woman who killed easily over a million people, crucified entire cities, destroyed and nearly put the Amazons out of existence, sold thousands of men into slavery and planned on conquering and destroying the entire known world. She use to TORTURE people by…
The thing is that Xena was at a point where she felt immense guilt for everything she had done and worked day, after day, after day, for 6 years (not counting the 25 she was frozen) to make up for that. She ultimately gave up her life for the final “right thing to do”, to achieve final redemption. Regina on the other hand has not felt any guilt (other than for Tink), she has only wanted to change because her son wants her to, because she loves him and doesn’t want to lose him. The moment she reaches that point in which she truly feels guilt for all the lives she’s ruined and works toward making up for that (at least apologizing to a few) then she will really become a hero worthy of a happy ending. She is very well on her way, this season has been showing a slow but steady development and I love that.
Just like that baby started the change in Xena (though I personally think it began with Solan), Henry is what began the change in Regina. Regina just needs to take it a little further now.
regina/henry | my little prince [3x09]
most important relationship on this show imo. Amazing video!
If they decide to make a ”Xena: Warrior Princess”- movie (because come on, that’d be epic and besides, there are so many remakes made right now so why not make it happen…) I want Jaime Alexander to be Xena and Jennifer Lawrence to be Gabrielle.
i vote for jennifer lawrence to be everybody
watching Caching Fire I thought “Jennifer Lawrence would be an awesome Xena.
Look people, look at this woman throw the chakram (the coolest weapon ever), cleanly cut the rope, lodge it into the tree on purpose, flip over Joxer, love tap the tree causing the chakram to fall, catches it left handed and then cut him free without even fucking blinking.
She then proceeds to use a warcry to attract the attention of a man eating demon.
Did she need to do all this to get the job done?
Nope. She’s Xena.
what episode is this? I don’t remember this scene
Screw writing “strong” women. Write interesting women. Write well-rounded women. Write complicated women. Write a woman who kicks ass, write a woman who cowers in a corner. Write a woman who’s desperate for a husband. Write a woman who doesn’t need a man. Write women who cry, women who rant, women who are shy, women who don’t take no shit, women who need validation and women who don’t care what anybody thinks. THEY ARE ALL OKAY, and all those things could exist in THE SAME WOMAN. Women shouldn’t be valued because we are strong, or kick-ass, but because we are people. So don’t focus on writing characters who are strong. Write characters who are people. [x]
