A Magical Holiday

Since Christmas is here

We’ll all have some fun
We’ll brighten your season
With the Heart, Moon, and Sun…

and Gwenevere and the Jewel Riders’ Christmas

With lots of snow
We’ll have a good time
and if you listen close
you’ll hear those sleigh bells chime… ( sorry it sounds corny,
but what else rhymes with time???)

It’s Christmas time with the Jewel Riders

It’s Christmas ( instead of Jewel Power), It’s Christmas…

It’s the giving season
And Christmas is here…
So lets join our friends,
For Good Tidings and Cheer!

And the Magic of
the Jewel Riders

It’s Christmas, It’s Christmas, It’s Christmas!

This cute Christmas pic and the song above were both done by the talented Morning Glory and first posted on the Avalon site.

 

Hi Jewel Fans! Did you all sing the song above to the tune of the the show’s theme song?

We hope you’re all having an amazing holiday season! For the holidays, we wanted to highlight something that has been sitting idle on the Web Archive version of Stormy’s Avalon site: A Holiday Section! It appears that way back in 1999, the Jewel Riders fan community got together and gave each other fun holiday-themed fics and art! It’s an absolutely lovely idea, and we’re excited to share this forgotten fandom gem with all of you again this holiday season, seventeen (!!) years after these were first shared.

The fic pieces contained in the section are as follows:

  • A Christmas Plan by Gryphon
    • “Hey wolf rider where you been” said Gwen interupting his thoughts. “Fufilling a Christmas wish” Drake said with a smile
  • Asacat’s “corn ball story at best” Christmas fic
    • So I called upon Morgana and Marlana. “Please sit and eat with us, let us forget our differences for now.”
  • Morning Glory’s Christmas story
    • Remember that during the giving season, a gift of friendship has immeasurable power.
  • A holiday play by Lisa
    • They were about to go home, when a small cart caught their eyes. It was selling stars for the tree that were
      sparkling so much, they seemed to be glowing.
  • Stormy’s holiday/romantic story
    • Tonight there would be parties until midnight for the most magical night of the year, and at midnight itself the people would scatter back to their beds to wait for the saint who brought presents to the children.

Please read and enjoy them as the authors would have wanted!

In addition to the holiday goodies from the Avalon site, we also wanted to give the fandom a little gift of our own. It has not escaped our notice that there seems to exist no high-quality, archival-style photos of the dolls online, so we set about to remedy that!

We’re featuring these, and many, many more images in a brand new section of the site, the “Domestic” section under the “Doll Line” section of Memorabilia under the main headers. The pictures will soon be up on social media as well, so have fun sharing these little gifts with friends!

Thank you all for an absolutely magical 2016, and we look forward to seeing you all in 2017 and sharing the magic of the Jewel Riders together!

Friends Together, Friends Forever!

And a very Merry Christmas to you and yours,

~Chris & Ronnie

P.S. Enjoy this lovely rendition of “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” by Gwen herself, Jean Louisa Kelly!

    I forgot I wrote that and now I fear to read it again! *laughter*

      They’re all fun little stories, and I’m so glad we’re still able to access them through the Wayback Machine!

  • I wish that the sheer material of the doll dresses had been transferred to the cartoon designs.

      They’re so pretty in that 90s way! Sheer material was everywhere, haha.
