Hmm, I think I'll do a fic where Blake is finally made to pay for all the evil things he did in the name of being good and the self-serving things he did.

And maybe one where Vila finally has to face the music for betraying everyone in Hostage and trying to dump Avon, Cally and Blake at Star One and Tarrant later, all just to save his own neck. I wonder if that went through Avon's mind in Orbit.

There are far too many fics where Avon is made to pay for his sins. You almost get the idea that he was the only one who did anything bad and the others were all his victims.

Well it's time to have a little parity. Just fair warning. If you don't feel like reading then don't. I'm going to write them anyway.

One of the minor reasons that I left fandom the first time was that I was sick and tired of Avon's mouth. Of course, that means the writer's idea of his mouth. I was glad when I got re-addicted that authors were no longer doing that so much to him.
Was it you who had a lovely essay, detailing from the series, that Avon only bit back when another bit him first, i.e., Avon only counter-attacked?

Yes, I did write an essay like that. I tracked each instance of when Avon said something negative and when someone said something negative to him or bullied him. I found that in every instance, it was never Avon who started a negative relationship with someone. But the moment you attacked Avon, from then on he became very defensive and the walls came up. If you left Avon alone, he'd be fairly decent to you or at least, he wouldn't be negative or offensive. After the despicable ways Blake and Vila treated Avon in Spacefall, I don't blame him at all for his extremely negative attitude towards them after that. They deserved every thing he said to them after that. If they had done the same things to me that they had done to Avon in Spacefall, I would have been even more scathing and not been as nice about it as Avon was.
