|Reviews for Dear Fanfiction Writers: VOY Style!|
| Fulgrim chapter 22 . 2/1
Dear Seven of Nine, Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix Zero-One,
I understand your feelings regarding fanfics in which you are depicted in a romantic relationship with Captain Janeway, and agree with your position regarding them.
However, I would like to ask: how would you feel about a fanfic in which you share a (purely platonic) hug with her? After all, you have said you admire her and consider her to be a role model - and, I presume, a good friend; such a gesture would be in-keeping with that friendship. I must confess, ever since you joined Voyager's crew, I was rather hoping to witness you share at least one cuddle with the captain and/or Naomi, and was a bit disappointed when no such incident made it onto the airwaves.
Fulgrim the Devonian
(Postscript: that's 'Devonian' as in 'native of Devon', i.e. a county in southern England. Just in case anyone reading this is confused and thinks I'm from a planet in the Star Wars universe...)

I wanted to say how much I've enjoyed reading this. I greatly enjoy Voyager fan fiction (often more than the series itself), but there are a lot of things in Star Trek fan fiction in general that drive me nuts. It's entertaining to get to "listen" to the characters fighting back.
I'm not terribly fond of Chakotay. It's not so much that I have anything against him as I just don't see much to his character (one of my biggest reason for supporting Voyager fanfic). That being said, I do support JC for one reason, and one reason only. I am of the opinion that the Captain is in desperate need of a hug and that Chakotay looks like he gives really good hugs. I mean honestly, I can only think of three or four times (excluding mind control and holograms) when the Captain gets to do more than just pat someone on the arm. And most of those times were when Kes needed comforting. When considering the fact that humans actually need physical contact to survive, is it really all that surprising that the woman was desperate enough to have a thing for a hologram? I'm actually shocked she didn't go nuts.
I'm done. Though I still think the Captain needs a hug. Can you make sure she gets one?
Sorry, I don't have any ideas for letters. But I do really enjoy this. It makes me laugh regularly. I hope there's more to come. And if I ever find anything obnoxious while reading Voyager fanfic I'll be sure to let you know.

You should mention something about the Harry Kim/Tom Parris

This is brilliant! I laughed so hard while reading this, and you do a fantastic job of explaining why Janeway and Chakotay can't be together (though I'll admit I still think they belong together). And the Janeway/coffee letter - absolutely hysterical!
I noticed that there are no letters involving Kes, if you are looking for more ideas. And maybe a letter involving Neelix and leola root.
| Neshomeh chapter 15 . 5/17/2013
Aw, poor Neelix. I like you, at least! You're colorful and fun and optimistic, which is great. You have to admit you do come on a bit strong sometimes with all that upbeat-happy-cheerful stuff, though. It can grate on people's nerves if they're not in a receptive mood.
| Guest chapter 20 . 5/11/2013
Oh, you haven't seen the tuvok/neelix fic? It's not a huge thing, but its the most common tuvok shipping fic I've seen, and the only neelix shipping fic.

Idea: The Voyager Crew find the crossover section. They respond to crossovers of SG1, SGA, Doctor Who, STNG, STOS, STDS9, STetc, and Harry Potter.
| Guest chapter 35 . 3/11/2013
You could write a letter with how Chakotay reacts to C/7, C/T or C/P. I would imagine that he isn't happy.
| PolarLuv chapter 34 . 2/28/2013
You should have Q show up and read/reply to some of the fanfiction. Btw, this is great! :)

Out of curiosity, don't you have better things to do then read FanFiction? It seems to me that there would be more efficient things to do with your time. FanFiction is extremely time consuming and the fact that you are reading these stories at all makes it seem like you enjoy it on some level. (I do find it suspicious that the command team seems more interested in the stories about the two of them being together then anything else. You must realize that many of the stories involving the two of you are borderline porn right? (or are you enjoying that?))
Who is running the ship while you are all occupied with reading? What if the ships attacked and you all get trapped in astrometrics? If you are going to waste your time why not at least do it in a safe manner? You have a schedule for the Holodecks why not for your reading time? Shame on you all. I hope you feel chastised.
Sincerely, A Recovering FanFiction Addict

Oh, and Elsie, a Mary Sue is when someone writes themselves (or rather, how they wish they were) into the story and makes them better and smarter and stronger and blah blah blah than the original characters. They are typically marked by flawless physique, superior abilities, wonderful social skills, and/or a relationship with one of the main characters. None of which characteristics (we often presume for insults' sake) the author possesses :)
| J chapter 35 . 1/29/2013
I love this! :D it's my favorite voyager fic!
That being said, it might be kind of a hilarious paradox if you did one where someone addresses the ship going back in time to 21st century earth, or receiving transmissions from 21st century earth or something. Since they kind of are in this fic XD idk if it could be pulled off, ahem, *logically*, however. :) just an idea. You never know what will be inspirational, and I don't want this to end!
| ElsieJo chapter 35 . 1/15/2013
I LOVE THIS WHOLE IDEA! You have me cracking up. Seriously. Although is there someone out there, anyone, who can tell me what the hell a Mary Sue is? I feel so out of the loop. Some of these are super specific, and I feel really bad for people who have written themselves into stories. -_- Um, I might suggest scolding people (achm, talking about myself here) for the overuse of wormholes/temporal anomalies in crossover fics. I know I stayed awake for probably 24 hours trying to come up with an alternative. Those appear way too often. Although, to be fair to us fanfiction authors, the show's writers (talking across the Star Trek universe) didn't do much better. Anyway, this is lovely, hermoine of Vulcan!
| angiehodgins chapter 35 . 1/13/2013
Wow you seem to have coverd a great deal in the crew descovering different fanfictions. Though you haven't touched on how janeway would feel if she came across a fic where in she becomes jealous of chakotay/seven. Just an idea for you to think on!
| Guest chapter 1 . 1/12/2013
fics where Janeway reacts to things like a high school drama queen. She's got too much self-control and brains to do things like that.
