Rated NC17

Summary: Written for the 2016 Vamb Secret Summer Exchange for my recipient, TrekkingThru.

This is an episode addition for ‘The Fight’. There are ramifications aplenty and much soul searching for both the Captain and Chakotay following their exploits during the crisis in Chaotic Space.

Request : I have not participated in a while, so I’m going with an old favorite. I love the episode ‘The Fight’. I would like a J/C romance based on that episode. It can take place at anytime during or immediately following the ep. I prefer light reading; some angst is okay but must be resolved and have an HEA.Rated R to NC17 is preferred.

This was a great request and I had a lot of fun dealing with the minefield of emotions explored (and unexplored) within the episode. Thank you for the excellent request, TT. 😀

Huge thanks and many hugs to CF for her eagle-eyed beta and to Audabee for her read through. xx   I have, of course, fiddled with it since then, so any mistakes are mine. 🙂

Kudos to Sira and Ria, the marvellous MOTW, for another amazing exchange. {{{Hugs}}}

Chapter One

Kathryn straightened her uniform jacket and patted her hair into place. Half an hour ago, Tuvok had all but escorted her from the Bridge, and although she was exhausted and needed sleep, she couldn’t shut off the hamster wheel turning in her brain. A shower and fresh uniform was the best she could do for now.

It was time to confront the issues at hand.

A Different Drum

Rated NC17

Summary: Written for the 2015 Vamb Secret Santa Exchange. My request from Katthryn was wonderfully simple – A JC story of the author’s choosing – and this is it. A quiet time of contemplation and resolution for our Captain and Commander, with a little help from the Bard.

The Other Side of Bliss

Rated R

Written for the 2014 Vamb Secret Summer story exchange. My request from Callhervictor asked for a J/C heavy story that takes place inside the minds of the crew when they are asleep (telepathically “knocked out”) by the ship-eating life form in Bliss. Bonus points for an “epilogue” to the story that shows what happens AFTER they wake up.

The story is written in alternating points of view from both Kathryn and Chakotay perspectives. Continue reading

Two Days Grace

Rated NC17

Summary: Written for the Vamb 2013 Secret Santa. My recipient was eydiemunroe and her request was for ‘a J/C story set within the first 48 hours after their arrival in the Alpha Quadrant. They can be hailed as heroes, or victims of a witch hunt – whatever makes for a good story, but I want to know how things shake out. J/C get to have a happy ending, but it doesn’t come easy and they have to work for it. Rating R or above.’

Go Fish!

Rating NC17

Summary: Written for the 2013 Vamb Secret Summer Exchange. My request was from Lady Callista.
I would love a J/C fanfic based upon an episode that isn’t normally used for J/C fics. (ie not Resolutions, Shattered, Coda, etc…). It can be a friendship moment, a first love scene, or anything in between; what I really want is a unique situation or a new spin on some brief moment in an episode.

The story begins towards the end of series seven, between the episodes ‘Friendship One’ and ‘Natural Law’.  Kathryn is feeling the strain of seven years of endless travel and during an away mission, faces one of her worst nightmares.

Another Door Closes.

Rated R

Written for the 2013 Vamb Picture Prose Competition. Thanks once more to Gates Hepburn, Quantumsilver and Audabee for running the comp and the wonderful talents of Tachyon for her visual prompt. Kudos, my friends.

This is a rather angsty Post Endgame J/C piece with the requisite happy ending, of course.

A Story To Tell

Rated NC17

Summary: Written for the Vamb 2012 Secret Santa exchange. My recipient was sibs and one of her requests was for a babyfic. The story is set towards the end of season seven. It branches off into AU after the episode Homestead through Endgame and beyond. There is no C/7 in this universe. Also, I must give credit to the writers of Endgame – I have copied and paraphrased their dialogue for this story.
