I just saw a post that misspelled Blake’s 7 as Bake’s 7 and now I can’t stop thinking about the show set in a bakery AU.
The Federation runs a corporate chain of bakeries that sell products lined with happy drugs so the customers don’t realise what a shitty product they’re actually buying. In this verse, Roj Blake used to belong to a number of independently-run bakeries that fought against being taken over by the corporation but ultimately lost; the workers/owners either joined the corporation or “disappeared”.
Once Blake goes off the drugs, he starts to remember his past and manages to escape the central baking factory where he was forced to work. During his flight, he joins up with a group of rogue bakers; they then stumble upon an abandoned bakery that is equipped with highly advanced machinery and a magical pantry that never runs out of stock.
Blake plans to bring down the Federation, returning humanity to the diverse and healthy pre-factory baking period. But will his acts of sabotage be successful? And will the quality of his bread, pastries and cakes really be enough to counter the drug-infused apathy of the masses and join the people together in a full-out revolt against the Federation? Find out more in the new episode of Bake’s 7!
