Xena Central


This site (https://www.xenacentral.net) will close down when the domain expires on February 28, 2020.

Edit January 21, 2020: there’s screencaps downloading instructions in the comments.

Edited to add: My Xena fan works such as wallpapers will still be up online at So Obsessed – that’s my personal site where I post all my fan stuff, occasional personal blogs and random stuff.

This is due to my desire to lessen the stress caused by having many big sites, which I’ve been doing steadily the last couple of years . This is currently my second biggest site and it takes up a lot of my mental energy due to having to worry about it due to just sheer size… the next server disaster is always just around the corner. And I do know already that when there’s another server and/or host disaster in which I might lose some/all content, or have to transfer my sites to yet another host… I no longer have the will or the energy to do all that work yet again with this particular site. I still love Xena as much as ever, but I having several chronical ilnesses and being a spoonie, I just don’t have the mental werewithal anymore for what it takes everyday to make sure this site is online and working properly.

I’m giving blanket permission to download anything you want, and to re-upload all or some of the files elsewhere. The only requirement is that you must credit me, and in case of Mike’s images (found in that section of the gallery), also Mike’s Images.

I suggest everyone should download everything you want ASAP. Should the disaster strike between now and February 28, 2020… recovering the site will totally depend on whether there’s a working online backup (my host offers these, but this site is too big and unwieldy and it might not be complete). I won’t be re-uploading and re-doing manually everything for just a few weeks. So download everything ASAP!

I’m open to adopting this site out to another owner/webmaster if anyone wants to take over for me. The hard disk space currently used is about 107GB and the monthly bandwidth used has varied between 16GB and 31GB in 2019, with some peak months around 100GB in 2018. You’d need to be familiar with WordPress, Coppermine and FTP or be ready to learn them quickly. I can stay on board for a month or two behind the scenes to help you get going if needed. I can push the domain xenacentral.net to you for free, but after that you’ll be responsible for renewing it every year including when it expires in February 2020. If you go with same host as I’m on, Host4fans.net, I can propably get them to change the cpanel account of xenacentral.net from my account to yours, so no downloading & uploading the 107GB would be immediately needed in order for you to take over, but if you want to host elsewhere other than Host4fans.net, then you will have to do that. In that case, I’ll give you FTP access to download all the files, as well as give you copies of the databases. But I will not be uploading the 107GB for you to another host, you need to do that yourself. If you’re interested, just contact me at intothisshadow@gmail.com and we’ll talk!



Tumblr Gone

by Ariane/December 03, 2019/No Comments

I was trying to delete a Tumblr sideblog and like a total idiot… deleted my main Tumblr instead. Sigh. *head desk*

Unfortunately that means my Xena Tumblr and all the other sideblogs were deleted too. *head desk x1000*

Not sure I’ll re-create them, it’s just too much work. I’ll propably just post all things at https://intothisshadow.tumblr.com instead.

More caps of Lucy from My Life Is Murder, this time from 1.o1 The Boyfriend Experience.

Lucy Lawless Screencaps

by Ariane/August 30, 2019/No Comments

I’m still a huge Lucy Lawless fan despite having deleted my fansite for her years ago (I still occasionally miss it!), and I’ve been following her career. I’m really enjoying her new tv series My Life Is Murder, so much so that I couldn’t resist doing some caps of her in it! I decided to upload them here, as bonus content. You can find them in the gallery, under the Lucy Lawless category.

No promises on how many episodes I’ll cap, or whether I’ll cap her in anything else – just wanted to share these with other Lucy fans since I had them on my hard drive!


Screencapping Complete

by Ariane/January 27, 2019/No Comments

I now consider my screencapping of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys complete too! You’ll notice I capped selected episodes – I don’t like Hercules or Iolaus, but I do like some of the other characters (many of whom also appeared on Xena). These characters are any characters played by Lucy Lawless and Renee O’Connor, plus Aphrodite, Ares and Discord and a few others, so I capped my favorite eps with them.

The usual rules apply – credit, don’t hotlink, don’t ask for zips/rars!

Gallery: https://gallery.xenacentral.net – scroll down until you see the “Last Updated Albums” section to see the new additions.


This completes my Xena and Hercules screencapping (but if Xena is ever released on Bluray, I’ll cap that too!)
