Thanks very much, Winnie! I'll check it out.

A weekly digest for Blake's 7 Fanfiction group

Stories reviewed this week:

REHEARSAL by Jackie Emery is a short humorous story which takes place during the episode "Breakdown". Are Avon's scathing remarks completely spontaneous, or does he take some time to perfect them?
http://www.blakes...icle_id=57

SILENCE by Michelle Birkby is a short story about the relationship between Cally and Avon.
http://www.hermit...&COUNT

THE LIGHT by Babel is a Fourth Season story about Blake and Jenna. Before Blake starts recruiting on Gauda Prime, he asks Jenna to go into hiding.
https://archiveof...rks/144950

On the anniversary of "Time Squad", the first episode in which Cally appears, two more Cally stories were discussed:

One of the most famous stories about Cally (which many also consider the best) is THE QUIBELL ABDUCTION by Lillian Shepherd, originally published by the Liberator Popular Front and later by Lillian Shepherd herself. The story may be read at http://archiveofo...rks/332809

And OPEN SEASON by Alicia Ann Fox:
https://archiveof...ks/4783853

In the news section, a new challenge has been posted to b7friday: the prompt is to write a story about minor characters.
https://b7friday....45810.html

Also, Sue Little has informed us that her story "Zero Hour" (2014) will soon will be available on AO3.

It wasn't me, actually, but someone else in the group. I haven't read Alicia's stories for a long time.

Anyway, I'm glad it awakened pleasant memories :)

The following stories were posted to the group:

ZERO HOUR by Sue Little
https://archiveof...s/30749757
"This was written back in 2014, but Lara and I collaborated for the first time back in 2012 when Big Finish ran a competition for entries for a new book; we didn't win, but we enjoyed ourselves so much we have continued writing together."

THE LIGHT by Babel is a Fourth Season story about Blake and Jenna. Before Blake starts recruiting on Gauda Prime, he asks Jenna to go into hiding.

BLAKE by Neil Davies
25 years after Gauda Prime and on a remote penal asteriod the son of Roj Blake faces a live in captivity, until an alien craft crashes offering hope of a different future.
www.fanfiction.ne...40/1/BLAKE


THAT I LIVE by Natasha
"In Seek-Locate-Destroy, Blake talks about his first encounter with Travis. When the Federation attacked, the members of his rebel group were unarmed, so Blake had to grapple with a guard to get a gun. I wondered, how did he manage it? Was it perhaps because that guard didn't want to shoot? And what if the two of them (Blake and the guard) met afterwards? Those were the questions that inspired me to write a story."
https://archiveof...ks/8815969

There was also a discussion of Discworld/Blake's 7 crossovers, and two such stories were mentioned:

ONE FOR THE ROAD by still_lycoris

In the news section, there is a new FANFIC CHALLENGE on Horizon:

The following stories were reviewed:

FELLOW FEELING by Sally Manton: after the events in 'Voice from the Past', Blake's deconditioning continues. Vila doesn't want to participate -- and for some reason, Blake doesn't want him to, either. The story is told from Vila's POV.
https://archiveof...orks/19315

https://archiveof...ks/4270020

The following stories were reviewed:

THE CHOICE by Sondra Sweigman was originally published in Dark Between the Stars#5, ed. by Kristy Merrill, in 1993. The Liberator crew are Servalan's prisoners. Servalan allows Blake to choose the manner of his death: by firing sqaud or by torture. The catch is that the death he doesn't choose will be inflicted on Avon.
This excellent Blake-centered story was posted in memory of Gareth Thomas on 12th February, which would have been his birthday.
https://archiveof...rks/224022

SHANE by Judith Proctor is a crossover with the famous Western movie (and the book on which it was based). The story is about Avon as a lone gunman after Gauda Prime.
https://archiveof...ks/4734134

Other stories posted by members:

TROJAN HORSE by Alex Pinfold is a Season D story: "Each of the four chapters is told from the viewpoint of a different regular character, coming together to create one adventure for the Scorpio crew."
https://thevelvet...horse.html

THE DREAMCATCHER by Akisame8: "My latest story on AO3 is centered mostly on Deva right before the fatal day on Gauda Prime."
https://archiveof...s/13569621

Other group activities: a poll was conducted where the group members voted for the kind of crossover story they'd like to read. Most people seem to favour B7/Doctor Who crossovers.

Agreed -- in fact, I like all of Sally's stories I've read so far, and I think her characterization of Vila, Blake, Avon et al. is spot on. She is an excellent writer.

Discussion topics:

Terry Nation's interview from 1992, on how he would start Series 5 of B7 (Charles)

"Why is it so difficult to write a PGP in which Avon is not present? Are there any examples?" (Jackie)

"I have been spinning around my mind a story immediately following Cygnus Alpha that tells of why it was Blake that takes over Liberator, i.e., why would Jenna and Avon follow him and not simply take the Liberator themselves... I have avoided writing this down, because it seems stories like this are met with anger from the “that’s not canon” brigade" (Malcom)

The following stories were reviewed:

THE THOUSANDTH MAN by Helen Parkinson was first published in Gambit#13, ed. by Jean Graham, in 1995. It is an alternative version of "Rumours of Death" in which Avon has been recognised in prison. Servalan decides to use him to exert pressure on another prisoner -- Blake.

SARTORIALLY CHALLENGED by Nico Mody explains the reason behind some rather strange wardrobe choices we encounter in B7
http://b7friday.l...51117.html

GAME OF HUMANITY by Sheila Paulson was first published in "Probability Square", ed. by Laura Virgil, in 1989. Blake and Avon are stranded on a planet where they encounter an initially hostile, primitive society. It all turns out to be a game played by some advanced alien race, but its purpose isn't revealed until the very end.

IN THIS LONELY PLACE by RileyC is a PGP story where everyone believes Avon is dead.

Watched "The Way Back" again tonight and was struck by how much I'd love a series that was more in keeping with the tone and setting of the pilot... If anyone wanted to write Ravella and Maja leading the resistance inside the dome after their menfolk were murdered, I'd be thrilled to read it. (Sabrah)

I am SO grateful to Nico for writing this, as it's the only explanation so far for Vila's Highly Peculiar yellow rubbery "baldrick" (?!?!) he wears in 18.PressurePoint.

And, it's hugely amusing to boot!

Stories reviewed in the group/recommended by members:

STRAIGHT UP AND BITTER by still_lycoris: in this story, B7 characters appear in a contemporary setting. Blake runs a coffee shop called the Liberator (and also uses it to host political meetings). Avon walks in one day just to get out of the rain.
https://archiveof...rs/3016156

HONESTY by Willa Shakespeare: Gan decides not to follow Blake's plan in "Pressure Point" and teleports back to the Liberator.
https://archiveof...ks/1302523

TRADING DREAMS by Astro Girl takes place after Star One. Jenna has acquired a ship of her own and returned to smuggling. When she meets Blake again, she needs to decide whether she still believes that some dreams are worth having.
https://archiveof...orks/25699

TEARS BEFORE BEDTIME by Executrix: "All of the characters appear in this fic as kids. It's a bit silly but I like it."
https://archiveof...rks/219232

Some members discussed the ideas for their projected stories:

"I am working on a much longer story, where the Federation is placed politically/socially sort of between what we consider 'normal' and the universe shown in Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, (where the people classifications and soma come from). After all, the Federation is about CONTROL of people. I think they start to withdraw from the Galaxy "if they are going to fight it, let them get on with it" and concentrate on Earth. Not really a B7 story, but they are part of the legend." (Sally)

"Idea. Blake and Avon end up together on Sarran with Servalan. Using wreckage the three of them must work together to build a new ship. Meanwhile Servalan plans to steal Orac (as always) but succeeds in making an alliance with the Sarrans and Dayna gets to use some of her more unique weaponry in order to protect Blake and Avon as they complete the repair work. Meanwhile the Liberator is infiltrated by Tarrant and the others and they must find a way to defeat Zens defence challenges... just a thought..." (Luke)

A poll was created on female characters: "Since this is a new story topic on b7friday, I thought I'd create this poll. Which female character would you like to write/read about in fanfiction? Which one do you think has a potentially interesting backstory, or should be further developed?"

Second the recommendation. It was IIRC actually the start of a fairly long AU series. I wasn't crazy about all of it, but it was admiringly well written (charmed by author's style = semi-trumps some somewhat tiresome character tropes).
HONESTY by Willa Shakespeare: Gan decides not to follow Blake's plan in "Pressure Point" and teleports back to the Liberator.
https://archiveof...ks/1302523
Thank you for pointer! Not heard of this before - downloaded to read soon - more Gan fic, looking forward to it!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on these stories, Winnie! I've only read the first few installments of "Straight up and Bitter", and I've liked them for their originality. But if there's no further development of the political aspect of the story I think I'll eventually lose my interest.

"Honesty" I think has a few plot holes, but I like it for its happy ending :)
