Welcome to Nicola Mody's Blake's 7 fan fiction.

I finally got my old web update software to work with my new computer and added two more stories on 10 October 2011, Zen and the Art of Computer Maintenance, and Necessary Force. Note: the dates beside stories reflect when I wrote the them.

Warnings:  In general, all stories have the same rating as the series; that is, PG13 or G.
If a story doesn't have a warning on it, then there is nothing in the story that needs to be warned for.
