Please don't tell me that I'm the only one with this problem...

It's been over a year now since I first watched Blakes 7. I would have thought that I would be over this obsession by now; or that I would have worked the fanfic writing bug out already. But from the looks of it...that was a slim hope.

I really had no idea what I was getting myself into... It's odd that this is the first, and only TV show that's expired me to do any writing at all. And the only one that I'm this passonate about.

I think I found B7 in 1990. I'd never been inspired to write fanfic for anything else.

I vaguely remember that you mentioned writing a long fic series for it? Or was that someone else?
21st-Jul-2008 02:25 pm (UTC)
Well, I did write a long series by my standards. :^)

It was the first stuff I'd written, so it's not at all what I'd write now.

The Stiletto Saga is 7 fairly good size Gen stories, and 5 groups of bits (some of the bits are sexy.)

Thanks. I'll take a look at those when I get home.

There are plenty of "First Cousins" in Man From UNCLE fandom--people who have been fans since the initial broadcast. And B7 is certainly rich enough to support psychologically probing stories that explore the universe and its fascinating characters.

Definitely agree there. The characters are much richer, more complex and seem to have greater possibilities than most shows out there.

I like Man fron UNCLE as well - but prefer The Champions! Although haven't got into the fandom of either of those (fortunately!!)

I still love Avon etc ... but don't spend too much time with them - As I have a different obsession now!

So the good news is, that you will get over it ... it just took me about 20 years!

Well I started in 1978 with B7 and its still my main fandom so nope, no hope for you.

I've been a fan since it was first shown - so no you may be stuck for life!
It doesn't stop me being fannish in other spheres, though less so of late.

I fell for it about five years ago. It's the only show I've feel driven to write for, though I've done the occasional crossover. I know a of fans who've been around a long time though. The characters and universe are so complex and there's so much room to play!
