B7: Stories Anniversary 
12th-May-2008 09:20 am
This is just an FYI to all of those who have read or are reading the New Patterns and Old Friends and the Perceptions stories...

I can't believe it but I was looking at the calendar and it's been a year since I was inspired to write my first B7 fanfic (or fanfic of any type); which was the first New Patterns and Old Friends story. My how time can fly...

From the original intention to write a short PGP story, it soon blossomed out of control as I became more and more involved in the characters and the B7 universe. Now I'm afraid that I'm so caught up in it that I don't see it ending soon. Sigh. Well, I just hope that I haven't bored too many people.

I just wanted to express my appreciation to all the wonderfully patient readers over this past year. All of your support, comments, suggestions, ideas and humour have been greatly appreciated!

P.S. My sister and her husband are visiting for 10 days starting this coming weekend so the chapter postings will slow down. I am currently trying to bank a couple so that there won't be a 10 day stretch without a chapter.

Just a few pics of all of the characters in the stories... couldn't find one to depict Sester.

Is it really that long? Time does fly like an arrow (fruit flies like a banana)

I love that picture of Cally in the top row ... and Servelan looks almost human ... she must be thinking about Avon! Great ones of Avon as well, btw.

Keep writing - I read bits here and there when I get time!

I'd love to see a picture of Argus, Reya, Sester, Ture and Allren. You must have an idea of what they look like; can we have a description in words? I like to at least know basic size and shape, hair colour, any special features, as then I build my own image. If I have nothing to go on, I make it up.

So far, Argus is tough with very short hair, Reya is tall, strong, and has short straight fair hair, and Sester is sort of pale and grey and unnoticeable. I don't have an image of Ture and Allren. I'd like to know how you see them--if you're at all visual like me.

I'm not as visual as you are but I do have a very vague impression of what they look like. I'll try to put words to the impressions....

Argus is tough with a strong cheekbones and just a bit longer than a military cut; he's about the same height as Avon; dark brown hair and light hazel eyes; built like a muscular acrobat with broad shoulders; stands tall and walks purposefully; very still body until he acts; quiet self-assurance; has no need to prove himself; a slight haunted look in his eyes

Reya - is tall but a bit shorter than Argus; her hair is a short brownish-blond; she has light grey eyes; triangular face with strong jaw line with narrowing at the cheek bone and temples; strong; moves like a dancer; long slender fingers; cynical, tough and doesn't put up with nonsense but at the same time is very vulnerable once you scratch the surface; naturally compassionate; radiates a bright warmth once you get past the tough exterior

Sester - has strawberry blond hair and has intense blue eyes; medium to slender build; silky compelling voice; quick easy smile; comes across as charming, whimsical and sincere; easy stance; likes to lean lazily against things with his arms crossed casually across his chest

Ture - light brown hair; dark brown eyes; tall and slender, taller than Avon; moves in nervous spurts of energy; light airy quality; excitable and enthusiastic when he is interested; quick engaging smile; curiousity about anything relating to computers and technology; normally quiet unless you get to know him; prefers letting Allren do the talking in any deals; somewhat of a geek

Allren - black hair; dark brown eyes; shorter than Ture about 5'8; medium build; stands with a slight hunch except when he's 'on duty'; slower and more deliberate in his actions; much less trusting than Allren and less tolerant of danger; the spokesman for both of them when making deals, very practical; responsibilities weigh heavily on his shoulders

Thank you, just what I needed! I was pretty close with Argus and Reya. :-D Now I have a good feel for them all.

Now all I have to do is find something that represents each of them :) I really wish I were artistically inclined.

Hmm. I could have a go, but they'd be how I see them.

I'd love to see what you come up with.

I don't see it ending soon.
Thank heavens! I had been dismayed to think what was I going to do when it was all over.

hope that I haven't bored too many people.
No way! Look forward to it every day at work Mon-Fri. Your series is amazing and so enjoyable!
