"Packs a wallop in its few pages. This is an a/u version of "Blake.'"
This fic was published in The Road to Hell and Other Stories with Lovett's other Blake's 7 fics (listed below). All five fics focus on Avon's relationship with Blake, but they take place at different points in canon and portray different versions of events to each other. They are not intended to be read as a series.
Reactions and Reviews
We won't say one word about the plot, to avoid the risk of spoiling - but if you thought 'Blake' was wrenching, this one will get you where it really hurts. Stunning. 
The fourth story, "Circle of Fire," is a short alternate version of "Blake" about which, for spoiler reasons, the less said the better, probably. But I *will* say that I found it to pack quite an emotional punch. 
And speaking of B7 (which I like to do, for some reason) for anyone who wants to try somewhere near the very best gen that Blake's 7, The Road to Hell - my own very very favourite - is on the web ... The other four stories on the page - Doppelganger, Gemini Rising, Lightbridge (I love Lightbridge, the imagery is so perfect) and the wonderfully *black*angst Circle of Fire - are all among my favourites, but may be more difficult to get the benefit of if you've never seen the show. The Road to Hell takes one of the lesser Series 2 episodes and turns it into something rich, strange and obliquely intense.
