| Guest 7/18/12 . chapter 4
I was so angry at myself when I realized that I had read a story where Janeway died. I avoid these kinds of stories unless I know that they're going to end with something like it was all a dream or that it was an imposter and she had been kidnapped or something because I honestly cannot control myself when I read about one of my favourite characters dieing and I end up crying. But then I continued reading it, and I'm still pretty pissed at myself, but I'm glad I did. The insight into each emotion is amazing and deconstructing episodes and mixing them together makes this just a touch more interesting.
I look forward to reading more.

Wow, this is quite the tense and tragic chapter. I really like that you included references to both episodes and the novels. The descriptions are beautiful and really help to convey the emotion of this chapter.
I loved these lines:
"If she reached out, as she tried to do but her limbs were already dead, she was sure she could reach Voyager. To pull it into her arms and protect it from the universe.
I have unfinished business here. She sighed to herself as she imagined Voyager flying across her consciousness." - This is Janeway, every single word of it. It is so true of her character to want to protect Voyager because she is like a mother to that crew, and she will protect that ship against all odds.
A few minor spelling and grammar mistakes aside, this is a fantastic chapter.

Death is a companion that many prefer not to examine too closely. Others cannot tear their eyes away. Still others have to reach out and touch it, perhaps compelled by urges similar to those that draw us to peel away the protective scab from an otherwise healing wound.
You've drawn from multiple perspectives and multiple episodes to create almost abstract pieces of art.

A brilliant and chilling exploration of Kathryn Janeway's ongoing flirtation with death in its many forms. Looking forward to the next stages - but acceptance...?
Welcome to a new, clear voice on this page.

What chilling tales these are. From the (literal) twist in chapter one to the confrontation of fear in chapter two to the confrontation in chapter three, these are all very well written and dark in the best possible manner.
I love the references that you've made to various episodes, as well as adding your own twist to some of the pivotal events during Janeway's time in the DQ. The third chapter is especially chilling if you consider the novel timeline...
Great job; I look forward to more:)

Loved these, from the twist (so to speak...) in the first to the palpable desperation in the third. A murky pool of angst and despair; one I am quite pleased I waded into.
Thanks for writing.
