So this Avon/Cally thing
dissentliveson
Eh...expecting one of the last survivors of a recently genocided telepath culture and an anti-social misanthropic computer hacker whose greed for the Liberator tricked him into becoming an unwilling rebel leader in place of Blake and just found out he got betrayed to show romance in standard ways is perhaps a bit much to ask.

Beautifully summed up!

Cally gets to tease Avon a bit and he doesn't kill her for it. And she's lovely when she's angry. Not a stretch to imagine a bit of recreational pleasure between the two. And why did she stay on Liberator? In the hope they'd find Blake or out of affection for him!( Avon). The fact she says the latter so angrily suggests some sort of connection -

Especially when there's no romance.
well most of the people who believe in the Avon/Cally thing Sarcophagus as their biggest argument.
Because outside of Sarcophagus, the interaction between Avon and Cally is "Cally gets possessed and hits on Avon/ Avon demands she be thrown off the ship" with the added bonus of "There's no one else" in Rumours said by Avon well in Cally's earshot...
I know Paul D said everyone was desperate for Avon to find a good woman ( or a bad one), but that's just ...
I have concluded that Jenna is Blake-aware, Blake is Avon-aware, Avon is self-aware and Gan is rarely aware. Vila is merely wary. Cally is frequently more away than aware.

where else would she go? She didn't have anywhere to go since S1, and we're told so.
Affection for him, yeah she did make with the moon eyes a couple of times, but Avon was otherwise engaged Pfft

Death maybe? A mission which she knew she wouldn't escape from? Companions for her death? Or she could have asked to join another group of rebels...Avalon maybe....

Probably though you're right - she was a bit stuck.

I think Jenna said that in SLD

and the "affection for him" part sounded to me like a ridiculous alternative , like "why do you think I'm staying for, the quality of the coffee?"

I don't think C/A had a romantic relationship, but I do believe they respected one another, and given that it's Avon and Cally, that is saying something.

Avon was stuck on Anna for a long time, and probably not open to a long term relationship during most of the series.

Well after reading this entire thread, and me being a believer that Avon/Cally had romantic feelings for each other, I think that my latest episode of Blake's 7 Continues will make sooper mouse very unhappy, read it to find why:

I liked it even if I didn't quite buy the premise. I welcome all fiction that brings the possibility of a happier ending to the story so thank you for that.

You are entitled to your own version of it. I might not find it credible but won't stop me from enjoying your writing.

In Blake's 7 Magazine in around 1982, Paul listed the following as the ladies in Avon's life:

* Meegat
* Cally
* Anna Grant
* Servalan
 
sooper mouse
Keyword here being "ladies"

Mr D has this thing where he's incredibly subtle when he wants to be.

IF Meegat, whom Avon sees for a couple of hours at most is on the list, that only tells you that Avon's interraction with "ladies" is pretty scarce.

In that line you could say that Jenna was one of the ladies in Blake's life...

Indeed, which is why I've always wondered about events as reported in Blake.

Deva: Jenna! I've found you. Come to Gauda Prime and join Blake.

Jenna: Oh, hell no. I've got a successful smuggling operation all my own supplying guns to Avalon and Grant. If I'd known it was Blake on GP, I'd have never delivered this shipment.

Deva: But you know how he is, now that I've found you, he won't take no for an answer, what do I tell him?

Jenna: tell him I hit the self destruct. Now get lost.

We agree on something. I first wrote that fan fic in 1986. Horizon published it as Hunter's and Prey.
I don't recommend reading it. It was my first ever story and I had NO IDEA what I was doing.

today I agreed with both you and TT. I blame my new pills.(first spelling of this said "I blake my new pills"Wink
Jenna deserves to be happy and Del Grant is the most endearing non villain character of the show. they kinda fit together.
AS in, who isn't Avon, but Avon has no eyes for anything that isn't Blake or Orac.
