The Watering Hole is a Magnificent Seven fanfiction archive and fansite.

Description from Freyan's The Magnificent Seven Fanpage: "Yet another Ezracentric archive. Gotta love those. *G* Just be prepared for some god-awful wav-files playing."[1]

From the main page:
The Watering Hole was launched in February, 1998 with the intent of providing a central location for contact information so that fans of The Magnficent Seven would be able to send out letters. Members of The Magnificent Seven Mailing list provided me with a lot of addresses (which were compiled here for your writing convenience). Fans also wrote letter upon letter to CBS and sponsors, telling them how wonderful this show was.
The efforts of the fans were rewarded when the show was renewed. Unfortunately, CBS pulled the series without showing all episodes. Hope was not lost though, and fans continued in their efforts, writing several different channels...hoping to find the show a home. Success The Magnificent Seven now airs on TNN.
Fans also wrote to MGM requesting that the series to be released on video. Success The Magnificent Seven has been released on video. Soon to be released on DVD.
There are a lot of things here: from fanfic to gathering information, music to pictures, trivia, mailing lists, webrings.
The page is a member of the Mag 7 Webring and the Ring of BrigaDears.

The description of the content is taken from the website, so it might not all be written in third person POV right now.

Since it would be impossible for him to get all of the fans a copy of this CD, I'm hosting it at this site.
