I hadn't read R. L. Wilson's The Mind of a Heart before, but I did last night and I thought it was very good. Thank you for recommending it. I haven't read anyone else except Margaret Warren who goes so deep into the characters' thoughts and feelings. I also liked the strange and ingenious plot.

I think Margaret Warren's Rough Magic is the best fanfic I've read. It captures the spirit, humour and surrealism of the show very well. It surpasses the original in that, as Brian Clemens said, they were cardboard characters. She breathes life into Emma Peel's character and makes her like a real person. It's amazing.

I loved the early part of The Quick and the Dead, but I thought the latter part was far too sentimental.

I read quite a bit of a fanfic a couple of years ago. I'd read a couple of Mia McCroskey's early stories, but I didn't like them. I read the first of her reunion stories a few days ago and it's a lot better, but I still didn't like it much because of the lack of humour or surrealism.

I love Sula Bassana's short stories. I find them hilarious. The FOLLI in Avengerland website they were on is no longer there, but they can still be found courtesy of the Internet Archive Wayback Machine, which is good for finding stories that have disappeared http://www.archive.org/index.php. Sula Bassana's stories are at: http://web.archive.org/web/20070819180837/http://www.geocities.com/sula_bassana/. The most popular one is 'Just Desserts', but I think they're all very good.

I also adore BitShifter's stories. Like Sula Bassana's, they may not be to your taste because they're not love stories, but I really enjoy them because I think they have the spirit, humour and surrealism of the original series.

There is an app for iPhone called "speak it".The British Male accent sounds remarkably like Patrick MacNee at times. Just type in the text and he says it. It's fun to make him say off colour things about his co-stars...
"Peter Cushing? a Right Tosser!" etc.

Hello, Miska_cz,

I've written a few fanfics from The Avengers, and they got pretty good reviews. I have a few from the Steed/Emma era. If you wish me to send them to you--although I realize this was written over a year ago (I'm still catching up on the Forum)--please email me privately.

Mona

It's not really a full-blown fanfic so much as a quickie joke; the writer is part of a fanfic group that practices with challenge assignments from a random word generator. The random word chosen was "genuphobia", an "acute fear of knees or kneeling brought on by a past traumatic event." Interesting, or should I say amusing, that when assigned to write about "fear of knees", the first fictional character that pops into the author's head is Emma Peel of the Avengers and her "leather-clad knee", to quote the author.

And no, it's not me writing doubly pseudonymously... Cool Laughing

Speaking of writing...any plans for future stories, BitShifter? Very Happy

I had 7 half-finished fanfics at the beginning of 2009 in my "odds and ends" folder when I got the opportunity to do some technical commercial artwork for two years (not the usual photoshop and web design I do for fun, but actual paint and india ink on actual canvas). Now the paint has finally worn off my fingernails and I'm back to work finishing the next story in the series, number 16. It's currently at 15K words, and will probably need another 8-10K, all glue and polish. It's 8 chapters plus an afterstory chapter. I predict it will be highly disliked by all readers, but then I've predicted that about every story I've written, and yet some of them have actually been popular, so what do I know.

It'll be finished soon, unless another interruption pops up its head. Of course, I had planned to finish it last spring, but I kind of got caught up in the art...

I should probably point out that I'm neither a writer nor an artist by trade, so these are all "bucket list" activities for me. I only wish I had more time for them!

Oh, I'm a huge fan of your Steed/Emma stories...and the Ladja!

You haven't seen mine yet:

JS: Ms. Peel, we're needed!
EP: Sorry, I still have to do the dishes. Can't it wait a bit? Let's say: till tomorrow. I have to take care of the baby.
JS: Oh, I'll pop by when I have more news.
EP: Yes. All right. No Problem. See you. By the way: did they get one of our best agents?
JS: I didn't dare to mention it, because I didn't want you to feel pushed into this against your will.
EP: Well, as long as they don't get you, they didn't get our best agent, so, they're still in a tight spot.
JS: You're flattering, I'm only second best.
EP: Don't wink.
JS: I never wink.
EP: I know. I have a bad author.
JS: Sorry to hear about that.
EP: Don't mention it. Forget about those dishes. I'm a modern woman. I have a dish washer.
Js: Come on then, off we go!

[I can rattle on like this for hours]

I like fanfiction very much, especially the stories from the Avengers Liberary. It's good too see that there are so many talented writers amongst the Avengers fans.

I tried something new myself , I call it a photo fanfiction about a thing mentioned by Steed in the episode The man with two shadows -
he is telling Mrs. Gale, that he was caught once by "the other side" and obviously he is afraid that could happen again one day...

Holy COW, Ischtar! You have got to continue that photo story right away!

It's very well done. You are one of the real artists on the list, like Mousemeat and Dandy.

Very Happy
Thank you very much Mona - this was a lot of work, because the pictures are from so many different episodes.
The sequel of the story will be online on saturday, maybe a little earlier...

Nicely done, Ischtar! That was an interesting mixture of many little story snippets from the show and the artwork was really excellently matched to your narrative. I like your art style; your use of using a technique to create old-looking photos/pictures is cool.

Does anyone know what has happened to the http://www.pattypatwebdesign.net/library/av_library.html site?
All Avengers stories are gone Crying or Very sad , but fictions from other series are still online.

A lot of the Avenger stories which could be earlier found on http://www.pattypatwebdesign.net survived due to a enthusiastic (seddi) fan on this livejournal site:

For the fans of Emma Peel and Severus Snape (Rick would have been a great diabolic mastermind) . there is another cool page from Mrsemmapeel07 on tumblr Avengerland:
