| Queen of the Red Skittle chapter 15 . 8/14/2014
Again, such a stunning story of emotional betrayal, tension, strained loyalties, and everything else that made this saga as riveting as it was. My hat off to you for creating such a strong Janeway, such a believable Chakotay, and such a mesmerizing Kashyk.
Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am exceedingly picky when I favorite stories, and this gem is no exception.

Oh my. The prologue is so much scarier when one knows what happened on his ship, and what exactly is happening now.
| EwigeStudentin chapter 15 . 11/9/2013
The story is over and all I can think about after this ride is SHE KILLED KASHYK! O.o
Well, I guess it was the only way to put him out of his misery. And to knock some sense into readers after the previous *very satisfying* chapter :)
I think I'll go back to read the prologue now.

Wow, a whole chapter of delicious, nerve-wracking Kashyk angst! I was really, really afraid for him here. It was great to see the reason for his special relationship with Juryk, and who Juryk actually was... cool naming scheme there, I think I'll ask you next time I have to name a kid, lol.
It was also amazing to see him pull his act together... even tho I am a little afraid of the epilogue now O.o

Yet another very intense chapter, and the pinnacle of the promised character growth. I can't even begin explaining how much I loved it.
I was a wee bit taken aback in the previous chapters when KJ had to basically force herself to make out with him... I was hoping she'd feel a tiny tingle of appreciation for him because, well, he was so damn smart and plain hot, both in the episode and in this story :p
But then I resigned to accept your sticking with them both acting in character and I loved them both even more because of that. This whole chapter was very inspired, with more revelations and all those inner conflicts - his nature battling with his pride and feelings. Mwah. Loved it.
Loved how he didn't tell her what the transmission of Prax's was really about... and how she deceived him yet again with the flu!

Oh the excitement! So many breathtaking topics approached, such admissions allowed, revelations exchanged. *faints*
| EwigeStudentin chapter 11 . 11/9/2013
So glad you let her discuss it with Chakotay! It was so much fun. I half-expected him to kiss her. No idea why - but I was sort of glad he didn't :)
It was also great to see that transition in both Kashyk and KJ... that they both had to believe their own lies to convince the other. What a crucial notion it is, so important for the future development of their characters.

It's my favotire chapter, I think! All that delicious deception around figuring out the wormhole first, and then that heart-stopping hotness later! Funny how KJ didn't expect to be quite so... swept away... that evening. Loved that scene, loved the whole chapter!
| EwigeStudentin chapter 9 . 11/9/2013
I enjoyed that scene between Chakotay and B'Elanna a lot. You manage to give something special even to the characters I am not very fond of. They sound sharper and more alive here than ever on the show, actually.
I also love seeing how you interpret canon - the lines that we have actually gotten to hear in the episode. And my fascination with how thoroughly you considered EVERY frikking plot-hole, every motivation behind their actions is growing with every chapter.
| EwigeStudentin chapter 8 . 11/9/2013
It's exciting to see KJ and Kashyk playing in one team for a change :) I was already wondering how you'd write your way out of the scary situation in the previous chapter O.o Let's just say my jaw dropped, together with KJ's and Juryk's!
| EwigeStudentin chapter 7 . 11/6/2013
Holy cow! How intense was that! And we naturally remember Mr. Juryk from the prologue *shudders* Kashyk's thoughts and actions appear so much better motivated now.
I wonder what "Program Janeway Theta-" was supposed to do... and I LOVE Kashyk's casual line in the end!
| EwigeStudentin chapter 6 . 11/6/2013
"He wants you."
Loved the abruptness of that line!
The Devore background was amazing too! You've obviously put so much thought into it, I found myself as captivated by the story as KJ was.
| EwigeStudentin chapter 5 . 11/6/2013
Wow... Kashyk taunting Chakotay... I think it was my favorit bit of this intense chapter.
Janeway's quip about disinfecting her ready room in the end was a much needed tension relief... you write the story in the way that makes the reader as exhausted by apprehension as the crew is!
| EwigeStudentin chapter 4 . 11/5/2013
I really liked their strategic, evaluating kind of banter. You had me on the edge of my seat here all the time. Kashyk's first coffee was spectacular, loved their reactions :)
The syringe is very unsettling however O.o
| EwigeStudentin chapter 3 . 11/5/2013
So many yummy insights - like Janeway's thought process, or the way telepaths speak so openly, but Kashyk's tactical considerations take the cake. You have it all figured out, down to the smallest details, like the smells on Voyager. His POV is always very exotic and even educational :)
And in the end - "Please, follow me." Whaaa. So much subtle menace, I'm melting here.
