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.

Pressure Point? I hate the way Blake deliberately lies to them there.

I'm not sure whether Avon could have gone through with it. I certainly don't think Vila's aggressive enough to; his first thought is to hide, and I don't think he'd think things through like Avon. He'd be hoping desperately to survive, that Avon would think of something, that where there's life there's hope, but Avon would be logical. That logic did war with his emotions though.

When did Vila kill anyone face-to-face? He certainly killed a lot of people with the neutron blasters. He does shoot at a trooper in Games, I think, but 1) attracts the trooper's attention, 2) closes his eyes, and 3) the trooper isn't there afterwards. So I tend to think it was practice, using a stn setting. After all, he objected to killing "Cancer" even though he thought he was an assassin.

Vila stabbed that guy with a knife in Cygnus. He was shocked after and dropped the knife. And yup, he does shoot at a trooper in Games. So he is capable of shooting at people though he does close his eyes.

I loved in Search that after Blake knocks a Federation trooper out and takes off, Vila came back to check if the guy was alright. I think that if it weren't for Blake's influence, Vila wouldn't have hurt anyone, not even with neutron blasters and if Vila ever saw face-to-face the violence and destruction caused by the weapons, he would refuse to do it anymore. Which is the way I have written him in my stories.

Oh yes. It's only on the nice clear DVDs that I saw that knifing wasn't accidental; I thought the priest had backed into the knife in the darkness before that. Yes, Vila is shocked, and I don't think he'd use the neutron blasters either if he saw the what it did to people rather than ships.
