Reactions and Reviews

Avon, 'hiding a fierce, passionate love behind a facade of black leather and indifference', nearly pushes Vila out of that airlock because he finds it easier than saying 'the words that would have bound Vila to him for life.' Avon then catches Tarrant beating Vila, beats Tarrant (who loves it) and heads off to confront Vila, who whimpers at the sight of the bloody belt and thereby wins Avon's heart. Confusing? Never mind. Avon also utters lines like, 'Shut up with the class crap,' which means that this one of those stories with only a tangential relationship to the B7 series, so there's no need to try and make sense of the characterisation.
