How did this come about? Once upon a time, back in June 1999, when the folks on the lysator Blake's 7 list were discussing silly casting ideas, Steve Rogerson suggested the Buffy cast to play various roles, such as:

  • Alyson Hannigan (Willow) as Cally
  • Anthony Stewart Head (Rupert Giles) as Blake
  • David Boreanz (Angel) as Avon
  • Juliet Landau (Drusilla) as Servalan

Then Steve wondered if Willow wouldn't be better as Avon, since she was a computer whiz. Then mistral suggested that Willow was Avon's long-lost daughter. And then people started discussing crossovers. Then mistral daydreamed that a zine would be lovely. Then I volunteered to edit one.

The editor goes on to note:

Staked Blake now has an odd claim to fame, as the "Strangest Fanfic Known to Earthlings" in this 2002 article in the San Fransisco Bay Guardian. Since the link they cite is the zine entry on Judith Proctor's site, it's no surprise that the article makes it clear that they haven't actually read any of the stories. Still, they say that any publicity is good publicity...
