Rating: PG-13 (for violence)
Major Characters: Ezra, non-romantic OC, seven
Disclaimer: I obviously don't own 'em. But since those who do aren't using them right now ..
Notes: Special thanks to all you out there who have been writing fan fiction for the Mag 7. Your stories are great! Please keep up the good work! Thanks to Mog for the ATF universe. I love it! The guys fit into it so well-I wish it were on TV!
Team 8 appears courtesy of HeatherF. They are great guys! Thanks for creating them and for letting me borrow them. I'll return them in tip top shape.
A huge THANK YOU goes out to HeatherF and Enola for all the help they gave me in writing this epic. Thank you so, so much for all the feedback, advice and encouragement! It would have never got out of the hangar, let alone off the ground, without you. Thank you for being willing to put up with all my questions and for kindly being willing to read and critique this story. And thanks most of all for all the inspiration! You guys are truly talented writers and have my deepest gratitude and admiration.
Warnings: Yes, there is some violence. And there is some bad language (because face it, the guys just do not have the best vocabularies, save for Ezra, and even he resorts to the fouler sort when the situation calls for it). The words are blanked out for my own conscience's sake (all apologies to those who find this annoying), but you get the idea. I don't speak that way personally, but, as I'm trying to keep them in character-well, you know how it goes.
I realize that some parts may sound familiar or similar to other stories out there, but any similarities perceived or otherwise are purely unintentional. It's just that I've read SO many Magnificent 7 fan fiction stories, that they've all began to jumble up in my head, and certain ideas have just became canon to me. Consider it to be a form of flattery!
Finally, yes, there is an OFC in this story, and she does play a major part, but she is NOT-and NEVER will be- a romantic interest or a Mary Sue, nor will she become a part of the seven, etc. So, give her a chance, please?
This is my first attempt at fan fiction and only the second piece I've ever posted, so I realize that the writing quality isn't all that great (especially at the beginning!), but I hope to improve with practice-indeed, I think it improves as the story goes along. So if you like the story, please let me know! I need all the encouragement I can get!
