*****Note: This marks the end of The Real Legendary Journeys for the time being. The staff is taking a well deserved hiatus, if there is interest in continuing in 6 months to a year, we will see where that takes us at that time. In the meantime anyone who would rather write stories set in the RLJ Universe (where things happened a little differently) is welcome to do so and we highly encourage you to do so. But for the time being the official RLJ story ends here.

These are the stories of a time long ago…

A time of myth and legend, when the Earth was still young. The ancient gods were petty and cruel, and they played mankind for their sport, plaguing them with suffering, besieging them with terrors. For centuries, the people had nowhere to turn-no one to look to for help-until he arrived. He was a man like no other, born of a beautiful mortal woman but fathered by Zeus, King of the Gods. Hercules possessed a strength the world had never seen, a strength surpassed only by the power of his heart. But everywhere he went, he was tormented by his stepmother, Hera-the all-powerful Queen of the Gods. Hera’s eternal obsession was to destroy Hercules, for he was the constant living reminder of Zeus’ infidelity. Despite her constant harassment, no matter the obstacle, as long as there were people crying for help, he would never rest…

But, the demigod did not stand alone. Regardless of the dangers, one courageous mortal stood with the Son of Zeus, to face evil and destroy the wicked, to safeguard the innocent and stand for hope in adversity. That mortal was Iolaus of Thebes, son of Skouros, former thief, the Golden Hunter, champion charioteer, valiant warrior, the loyal heart-brother to Hercules …a mortal who inspired others with his example and who would one day come to be honoured and worshiped as a god in his own right…

These are the stories of their adventures, the stories of myth and legend that inspire through the ages-the stories of a friendship that knew no bounds between two heroes who walked side by side and stood together, back to back, to bravely defend the helpless from whatever evil threatened…

The Real Legendary Journeys

A virtual series which will rewrite history and right what once went wrong.

Final Notes:

Hey all

The final 10 episodes of Real Legendary Journeys are complete at last. We will begin airing 1 episode a week beginning Aug 5. We're a year later than planned but we got here.

It all began in 2003 with a basic outline written by me, Bwell, Jane and Margui for how we thought things ought to be fixed but an outline is a fluid thing. It changes and grows. Each author that joined us had something new to bring to the overall story and each twist changed things down the road and made the whole better. Eventually we disembarked from making little fixes in the original series and created our own alternate universe to play in. We hadn't intended that really but it was a welcome outcome when it happened. And now we come to the end of the story.

At this point, I believe this is the end of Real Legendary Journeys. I say that because it has taken an extra year to complete these last 10 episodes and over half of them have passed through multiple hands. And even before that we've had writers dropping out, muses drying up, computers melting down, hurricane evacuations, you name the real life crisis, we've probably had it. In short, at this point, we don't have enough writers left on staff to even consider a season 6. If that changes in the future, we might consider continuing the official story in a limited way, maybe movies or a miniseries but for now this will be the end of the official story.

Anyone is welcome to play in the universe that we have created. Consider this a jumping off point where individual authors may continue the adventures of Herc, Iolaus and co on their own outside the official RLJ series framework. We created this universe as a place to play in where the events of season 5 that so many of us thought could have been so much better happened differently.

I know that if I should write anymore for this fandom, it will be in the RLJ universe where things happened the way we wanted them to.

Before we begin airing these last few episodes, there are a few people that I'd like to publically thank without which this series would not have reached completion.

Our audience for sticking with us for the long haul. Without a reader there is no reason for a writer to write.

Our writers for being the brilliant, talented people you are, without you there would not be a RLJ and RLJ is something we can all be very proud of. Thanks to the following for their participation: Owlharp, Melinda, Melisande, Rhiannon, Caro, Margui, Sandman, Pythia, MaryE, Ziggy, Marcia, and Mary Crawford

Special commendation to Barbara, Llyra and Arianna for stepping up when others backed out. Llyra was the only author of these last 10 to even come close to making the deadline and even long after the deadline had passed and she thought she was done, she took up yet another episode at the last minute and still wasn't the last to finish. Bless you, it's good to know that there are folks who will say yes when I say, "can you do one more, please?"

Gem, Jane, Bwell and Baisden for hanging around long enough to do one more episode in spite of real life and nearly non existant if not completely dead muses. Thank you for sticking with us until the bitter end.

My biggest thank you to Quiet Wolf who has become the chief beta and co editor for the series, who remembers all the little details of the tv and RLJ series and which is which, I don't anymore, it's all a jumble. You willingly shared the editing duties and the dirty jobs. You knew when to sweat the small stuff and when not to. (I think we both discovered what a valuable skill that is for managing editors to have. We'd have gone crazy or committed hary cary otherwise, I'm sure.) You jumped in and volunteered to do whatever needed to be done. You kept me going when I was ready to throw in the towel. Most importantly, you could always be depended on to share an honest opinion and I depended on that more than you can know. You may not have been there in the very beginning but we'd never have gotten to the finish without you You have become a good friend. I have no idea what we're going to get up to next but I sure hope that it has fewer trials, then again, it's the journey that's the most important part. It's not where you're going, it's how you handle the bumps in the road. It's good to have a partner in mischief. Thank you, my friend.

Real Legendary Journeys has been a journey and an adventure and a highly educational experience on several fronts. I think we accomplished what we set out to accomplish. I think we righted the wrongs and we did it with style. What more could we have asked for?

I count 21 writers who between them wrote 100 episodes of the Real Legendary Journeys in 6 years.

Well done Everyone.

Thank you.
Ceryndip (7-25-08)
soon to be retired managing editor of RLJ. It'll be good to just be the Librarian again.

*****************************************************************

Hey all.

It has been a long ride, with more than a few "tearing out your hair moments", but it's also been a lot of fun. The whole project never would have happened without everyone who participated, and I think together we've managed to create something we can all be intensely proud of.

I would also like to thank the readers who've stuck with us all this time, especially the select few of you who always offered up encouragement and feedback and even dropped a few subtle hints that you were patiently waiting for the next installment

And I would definitely like to give thanks and praise to all the writers. This wasn't an easy project to write, because while everyone had input, ultimately authors had to sometimes push their own muses aside and write their story according to the plan the group put in place. Especially with season five, where we completely went off in our own world and the episodes were so interconnected - it was vital to stick to the plan and I'm still amazed we pulled that off with so few problems.

And my super special thanks to all the authors who read the season plan and followed it - not just for their own episodes but for the eps surround theirs so they could adjust their stories accordingly, and my intense thanks to those of you who followed the spelling list And for those of you who didn't, thanks to you as well for making those corrections in a timely fashion with such good grace! ;)

And of course, to Ceryndip. She's stressed before that this was never "her" project, but she was definitely the heart and soul behind the whole thing. She kept all of us going and I don't think anyone could have asked for a better project manager. She definitely did a lot of work behind the scenes and maintained her sanity through it all. Or at least kept up appearances I learned a lot by watching her handle the various situations that cropped up, and I'm extremely proud to count her as my friend. After all that, we were going to come out as either friends or enemies - glad it was the former!

In summary, I hope everyone here has gotten something out of RLJ. It was never easy, but it was a labor of love for us, and I hope it gives our readers some measure of satisfaction or closure when season 5 wraps. Please feel free to play in this world, and thanks for indulging us all these years.

Love,
Quiet Wolf (7-31-08)
