Talk:The Road to Hell

Hello! Firstly - hooray for making individual pages for fanworks. This is awesome. Secondly - the Suzan Lovett stories aren't actually interconnected, although they are all awesome. Some (I think it may have been Executrix) have said that they are... similar in theme? And I do think it's worth grouping them together because they are all stories by Suzan Lovett and all about this really intense Blake-Avon relationship (that's the similar theme in a way), plus they were all published together. But they are not a series, so that should probably be changed. I haven't done it, because I thought it'd be better to discuss what might be a good thing to do with it. Also - I did eventually come back and a better review of this fic, I promise! It's here. --Aralias (talk) 23:58, 28 January 2014 (UTC)

It's on my short list to make a lot more individual fic pages for Blake's 7 fics. As per the series thing, how about "While not a series, these stories by Suzan Lovett are similar in theme."? I'll tweak this page, and if you and others think it feels right, I'll tweak the others as well. As per your reviews, Aralias, I always find them interesting and super fun. :) --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 13:30, 29 January 2014 (UTC)
Yes... I'm not sure. Which is unfair because I suggested the theme business. Maybe something like (and I know this is reiterating information you've given above): "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."--Aralias (talk) 00:27, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Take a look now? Maybe tweak the wording if you think it needs it? --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 00:33, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
Yes, I think that's better. I'd say 'it's because it now says what I think!' but... well, you wrote what I said last time and then I came back and said I didn't like it. In a way now it looks like 'so - why are you telling me about these other fics if they're not a series?' but I do think they are worth talking about together (as I said above...). And they were all collected in one zine, which is as good an excuse as any. Thanks for making that change. I do think it makes sense now.--Aralias (talk) 00:46, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
It's fine, all fine... ;). And if it isn't, someone can come by later and say so. At least there will be some context to our decision. I'll make the change on the other fics. --Mrs. Potato Head (talk) 00:50, 3 February 2014 (UTC)
