Today's topic is "worst decision." Blake and Avon have each made some bad ones, but surely the award goes to

Thing aren't going well so you decide to DESTROY HUMANITY? Really, Travis?


Here's a cracky opinion, escaped from yesterday's post. Sinofar and Giroc or some other god cursed Blake and Travis so that whatever the one does will help the other. Blake saves Travis when he attacks Space Command HQ in Trial. Travis defeats the Federation for Blake. All life is linked. See? It all makes sense. Where's the fic?

Blake and Travis can be like Bolingbroke and Richard II--one bucket goes up, one goes down...

I like it...

I don't know about you, but I have the impression Boligbroke/Richard is a more popular pairing than Blake/Travis.

That's because the Histories ficathon* is bigger than our ficathon!

*They turned down my suggestion of calling it "Hallelujah, It's Reigning Men"

:lol: This is true.

I think, actually, the thing about this is that it does make some kind of twisted sense for Travis post-Trial, because he condemns himself, the system, he isn't cut out to be a rebel of any sort - so to maybe condemn everybody else in response could be a workable character ending/breakdown. Just unfortunately, in between, we had the decision to be the Invisible Man, the decision to kidnap Blake's cousin, whatevs, and the decision to hang about gambling dens with a hat. Which then make the ending one more random on top of the rest. They actually needed to either not use Travis between the two or drop some hints that he was still on a post-Trial bender of disgust for everyone.

So, yes. And then maybe no. It's Blake's 7. Everyone loses it in the end, Travis just sooner than most...

I'd never really thought about Travis' arc this way--good points! I'd like to write some fic about Travis, but I have a hard time getting into his head. This helps.
