Vila : I've
had my head adjusted by some of the best in the business.
But it just won't stay adjusted.
I wrote this because there’s so much fanfic based around Blake’s conditioning, and everyone seems to forget about poor Vila.
It was almost called “Memory”
Originally it was going to have a beginning that explained how they’d ended up at Reymon’s planet in the first place but I couldn’t work up any enthusiasm for writing that part, it’s not really relevant to the story anyway. I do have this tendency when writing to come up with ideas that are basically middles. Then spend ages trying to find and end and a beginning. I find beginnings the most difficult part (along with titles) so often tend to drop into the action straight away.It had been sitting half finished for ages because I wanted a more definite ending than Vila just slipping back into the usual ship’s routine. The ending I finally used abruptly came to me all in one go some weeks later and I scribbled it down it a great hurry before it fled again.
