-Travis I and Blake make the most aesthetically pleasing m/m couple on the show (I don't ship it, I just like how they look together)
-If Avon could choose anyone to have casual sex with, it would be Soolin
-Gareth Thomas' idea that Avon's full name is actually Kerristopher is THE BEST.
-The mind control drugs the federation dosed everyone with actually helped Avon and/or going off them after a lifetime of being on them was bad for him
-Avon on top (position wise--I think he bottoms from the top) with Blake is sexy as hell
-Avon is not really the #2 man with computers in the Federation. Vila was making a joke.
-Tanith Lee wrote two great episodes for B7
-Nothing beats a happy ending
-Inga is sexy

i may be generalising, but surely we ALL like this ;)

otherwise - your mind control drugs idea is very interesting. i haven't read that before so i think it's neither popular nor unpopular. it would make an interesting fic, but also it might stray towards being an issue fic about avon's depression.... and i think it's an interesting view on his character, because we dont know what he was like on the drugs. but maybe it would end p being too much about people on drugs.

i don't know! i'd be interested in hearing more about that idea anyway.

inga is very young. that's all i have to say about that :p

It's pretty rare in fic, though! Luckily for me, you write it a lot.

Yeah, the drugs thing would be tricky to do well. I probably wouldn't trust myself to do it. :/

Travis 1 is definietely the prettier Travis. It is simply a fact. *nods* And he and Blake do look good together.

Noooo, Vila, Vila, WHY IS VILA SO OVERLOOKED? *sob* Soolin/Avon is kind of a great pairing that I haven't done anything with yet. It's on my List!

It saddens my Tanith Lee loving heart that people disagree. SADDENS IT. Because Sarcophagus and Sand are both AMAZING. Sand is a teensy bit more amazing but Sarcophagus is gorgeous (although I think Sarcophagus gains a bit if you know Tanith Lee - the second I realised it was by her, I relaxed into it more because I've read so much of her work that some of the odder stuff just seemed more sensible after that!)

My Mum used to know the actress who plays Inga. She showed up and there was general cheering and flag-waving, we were both therefore terribly sorry she didn't appear again!

Avon/Vila is good for casual sex, and probably has the most innuendoes of any B7 pairing, from Vila going on about Avon's delicate touch to that Freudian line about there not being "a volcano alive that would dare to swallow Avon" to "I never thought of you as a woman" in Orbit.

I haven't read any Tanith Lee besides Kill the Dead! Do you have any recommendations?

I have a great many recommendations! A lot of them aren't in print any more, although can generally be acquired second-hand.

My personal favourite of all of hers is When the Lights Go Out. It's a bit surreal sometimes but that's really why I love it, it's a beautiful odd book and one I've read again and again. A slightly less odd set but more children's booky (you may or may not like that) are the Claidi Chronicles - Wolf Tower (or Law of Wolf Tower), Wolf Star, Queen of the Wolves and Wolf Wing. I loved them, they were how I first got into Tanith Lee in the first place. If you like a sci-fi romance, Silver Metal Lover is really quite interesting and rather sweet. The Flat Earth Series (Night's Master, Death's Master, Delusion's Master, Delerium's Mistress and Night's Sorceries) were really gorgeous, very evocative and fairy-story like. Her sci-fi short story anthology Space is Just a Starry Night was quite lovely (and I was so pleased that I only got it after I understood the Blake's 7 reference too!)

But basically, I've liked almost everything that I've read by her (not Storm Lord. That was horrid.) I think she's wonderful. :)
