Read on if you are not familiar with The Magnificent Seven...
M7: For those of you who don’t know, the Magnificent Seven was originally a movie - Western - starring Yul Brynnar and others I can’t remember. A few years ago, someone made it into a TV show, which is still being shown Saturday nights on the Hallmark Channel. This crossover is based on the characters from the TV show.
It is a unique fandom. The show was based in the old west, some time after the civil war, but the unique friendship between these seven men caused one author (Mog) to write about them in a modern day setting (as Denver ATF agents). Now, ATF fanfiction rivals Old West fanfiction in quantity and quality. This spawned a vast quantity of AU’s which put the guys in various worlds. Past, present, future, fantasy, non-corporeal, even. There are sagas involving the guys in the Star Trek universe, as Immortals (Highlander), dragon slayers, FBI agents, as brothers (foster or real), even an incredibly lengthy and well written epic that puts them in Star Wars, set between the two sets of trilogies.
The ability to incorporate these guys into any reality seems to be endless, so I decided to give it a shot myself. This is a different AU from others I’ve read over the years. I created it on my own, and is closed to other authors for now.
I’m hoping that readers will grasp the characters, even without seeing the show, but if you want to become familiar with the guys, go here:
