The Shipper Seasons would be nothing without the fans, and especially nothing without everyone who contributed to it and made it what it is today. I was going to create a video and tell you all how I felt and say thanks, but it just was not working, felt forced and not real (I'm not the video type, believe me!). So below is what I was going to say. Picture me saying it, with as much heart as the words can evoke.

Today, September 29th, 2011 marks 10 years since we began the Shipper Seasons and I wanted to take a moment to say "thank you"!

First, a huge thanks to everyone who has read our stories. I have enjoyed working to create this virtual series and it's wonderful to know you all enjoy it as much as we have. It would not be the same without all of you.

It also wouldn't be the same without everyone who has contributed time, effort and ideas to this series so I want to offer my thanks.

To Sais 2 Cool for your hard work and dedication in the development of Gabrielle's character, the Roman storylines and history and to knowing how to bring the angst when it comes to Gabrielle and Haimon. *grin* As a non-shipper, you brought a wonderful balance to the team and your work has been greatly appreciated.

To Amber who is one of the people who worked on the Shipper Seasons in those early years and who has such a passion for the development of Eve's character. She might not have grown as much as a character without you. Thanks for all your contributions.

To Tango for her early work on the series and the countless editing you did on episodes. You were part of those few fans who helped get the Shipper Seasons off the ground, did some wonderful work on the gods eps of season 7 and This Is Your Life of season 8. Thanks for all of your efforts, it has been wonderful to have you aboard.

To Ryan for a simple fact that you became a unique contributor to the later seasons, the only guy on an all-girl team. Your ideas were always interesting and I had a wonderful time discussing concepts with you. Thanks!

To Tali for all the comedy you brought to the stories you worked on.

Also, I want to give a shout out to our other writers: Elfrieda, Del, Sally, Karla, Kim, Initia, toxic, and Marueen. You've been a great help!

And last but most certainly never least, to LadyKate, my partner in crime, so to speak. *grin* Your ideas and dedication are inspiring. It's been such a joy to get to know you better through working on this series. To be able to share in our love for Xena and Ares has been great. So thank you for all of your hard work and drive!
