|Reviews for A Chance Encounter|
| melodycraft chapter 1 . 3/22
Well I decided to dive into this one. It has been a few years since I rewatched all Voyager, but even so I still remember that episode where the captain and first officer were stranded together. It was so full of romantic tension! Then they tried to link him with Seven at the end...wtf? Anywho, this is fun because I just hear their voices so clearly. You really captured them.

Short story 134,709 words DOES NOT COMPUTE. :)

I thought this was a great story, well-written and interesting. I'm not a Rose fan so I could have done without those parts but a very entertaining story nevertheless.

Any chance Janeway is descended from Kate Stewart in this universe?

The only thing I would change, is what Kathryn and Edward were doing while Chakotay was talking to the Tenth Doctor in the epilogue. Instead of a Klingon festival, I would've had them have an encounter with a mysterious young man wearing a tweed jacket and a bow tie. But, that's only what I would do.
Anyway, this was an awesome story and it was fun to read it again. Yes, I said again. Truth is, I read this story years ago, but forgot to leave a review. But then, earlier today I remembered this epilogue and came looking for this story again, and I'm glad I found it. So, like I said, it was fun to read this story. Great job!

I've been reading Voyager/Doctor Who crossovers in the last few days, and this piece is by far the best all-around story so far. It's a fully fleshed out story, engaging. I was thrilled to see the Vashta Narada appear. The visit during Ten's farewell tour was great. I think Eleven should show up sometime though ;-)

Well what can I say, this was a wonderful story. Just what I went looking for when I searched for a Dr. Who, Voyager crossover on google. Time is flexible, I love it, Kathryn and Chakotay can get together earlier and keep the time line in tact. I always thought that Dr. Who should have a crossover with Star Trek, and Janeway would have made a great companion. Well done!

This was such a wonderful story! You did an amazing job. I even cried a few times. So beautiful!

Holy shit that was amazing.

This is an excellent piece of work and felt like an award winning episode. Thank you.

this was my first Voyager/Doctor Who, and I was so delighted since I love both shows ...(althought ...and please don't throw rocks at me, I like more 9th and 11th) I think you did a wonderful job with the characters and also the story, you made me laugh, and cry and cry a bit more and then I laugh again...an emotional rollercoaster if you ask me, but worth every kleenex box!... thanks for sharing your work ...(btw I finish reading it like 2 weeks ago, and I still need the ocational hug when I remember some parts of this brilliant fic)

Ok, after reading CKLizzy's and Marcus' and Kai21's comments I'm completely intimidated...
It's so rare to find good Doctor Who / Star Trek, it was great reading your story :) thank you for sharing it.

I think the last time I cried so hard reading a story/novel was when I finished Before Dishonor... KJ's message from the future brought it all back... still can't believe what they did to her in the books, but a part of me also wishes that this would be the book, so that she wouldn't be that, but it had only been one possible future that then was prevented...
Kathryn in the TARDIS was a nice picture, so quiet, so... the calm before the storm, I guess. And I love it that he calls his ship Rose now... I feel a(nother) shipper resolution coming up. Well, I hope. Who knows what else you have in store that will tore my poor heart apart *grumbles* ;)
You brought out a truth in this chapter though that has been haunting me ever since I started watching TV shows and the ones with military background in particular. What the Doctor says about KJ wanting to keep Chakotay safe - that she does it even though she isn't with him, has no romantic relationship with him. I never understood it. I may understand the reasons logically, but still, I don't understand it. What use is it to deny a relationship where feelings are present in any way? Whether you act on these feelings or not, if they are strong, and especially if they are mutual and both parties KNOW it, then it doesn't matter. You only deny youself a chance of at least some happiness. Instead you harbor your feelings, both persons suffer, have nothing from it, and when one of them dies in the end, the other will always wonder how it could have been. It is so stupid.
That was my problem with many of the shows I watched (and watch), first and foremost Star Trek (esp. Voyager) and Stargate. And the Doctor is so right. So damn right. No matter what, she still loves Chakotay, as he loves her. And you can't make feelings go away just because you think they are not right, because some stupid protocols don't allow them. I just wish anyone - even the Doctor himself - would have said that to KJ (or Chakotay) on the show.
To imagine that last conversation in Kathryn's quarters... how they almost, more or less, admitted to their feelings... how they almost... I really think this is "worse" than Before Dihonor... and yes, I'm too emotional... but I'm crying like helll at the moment, because right now I feel that this is bigger than any tragedy ever written... And I hope that - because I believe everything will go well - that I'll never have to read the full message to Chakotay...

The Doctor telling Voyager's crew of the Slitheen. Now that's faces I wuld have wanted to see. And KJ's laugh heard. It's almost as if one can feel the happiness
Though I get the impression that you take a liking in destroying always the most happiest moments, huh? And again just when there's this little distance-closing between J&C... I was sitting here and scowling "I'm so tired of interruptions!" at my screen for them *lol*
Still trying to decide what is worse - Vashta Nerada or the Borg... maybe they should have brought Vashta Nerada on board with them, and then sent them to the Borg. Ha, now that's an idea I like! On the other hand, where there's only shadows, VN wouldn't have a lot ot do...
And there he goes again, the Doctor, the Lonely Angel behind the joyous man. Heartbreaking, again (though my brain is still busy getting a picture of a assimilated Dalek... bloody hell...). Of course he has to leave then. I always thought that if there was a personification to the saying "Don't judge a person on their happiness. I've often laughed to keep myself from crying.", it's the Doctor.
The goodbye scene is sweet. Especially the Doctor foregoing hugging Chakotay :D And of course - K9! Our beloved robodog. Got me a stab in my heart, though, as K9 always makes me think of Sarah Jane, and therefore Liz Sladen... :(
And then the exchange between J&C about K9, "Mistress Janeway" and Chakotay's cuteness... laughing out loud, AGAIN... that is, until there came the little talk in the turbolift... that had me all, um, tingly. Indeed they need to talk. Can't wait to have them to, and hopefully some truths will be said... it's about damn time...
The Doctor and Donna in the TARDIS. As you might by now have realized, I'm reading the chapters in bits and always write on my review in between. Just now, I've reached the part with them arriving on Jupiter... and realizing that something went horribly wrong, that they're all dead, all those people who should be there, assimilated... and you know which song is playing on my media player? "Who Wants To Live Forever" by Queen. Gosh, sometimes I hape my computer... that really gave the chills right now...
I'm assuming the Doctor's interference in the past changed the timelines a bit too much. Him sneaking in to gather information(it's "Headlong" now, by the way... I'm getting a soundtrack here without wanting it...) is risky, even for the Doctor... I really don't want to imagine what could happen if they got his technology.
But wait a moment, that information... Am I right to assume that your including the books in your story, or in the possible future anyways? Because 2380 is when it happened, and when KJ died... NOW I'm getting agitated...
The ready room scene... awwwww... wonderful. So, so sweet. Absolutely loved it. How he asked permission to hug her! I'm a happy puddle of shippy goo right now *laughs* And then K9... I love that dog, did I mention that? He always made me laugh, especially in the Sarah jane Advantures. And imagine him with that basket on his back! LOL!
Never mind though... because you slapped me, your poor, poor reader, again. Hard. This last sentence definitely felt like a blow to the gut and face, equally. Ouch, I'd like to say.
Could you stop with these cliffhangers, because I'd really like to také a short pause from reading to do *anything* else? *sighs*
Heavens, you're good...
