I really loved the stargazing. My dad and I do that now and then.
And I also really like how you bring up the neural link in your stories. You basically do everything the writers of the show *should* have done for Chakotay and Seven's romance, but neglected to.

D: New York doesn't do the giant Christmas Tree anymore? I'm gonna have to look that up.
Anyway, another great chapter. Particularly Chakotay's bad memories.

I am thoroughly a tit for not reading more of your stories sooner.
I love this one so far. Largely because it's sort of a "F**k you" to the stupid way Christie Golden broke Chak and Seven up in "Homecomming," with the excuse of "we're not on Voyager anymore, so all recently formed relationships are null and void, by excuse of identity crisis!" (Barf.) It was touching then, to read your line about Chakotay wanting to reassure Seven that being on Earth didn't change anything.
And second, I love your description of future NYC! The idea of Times Square and the ball dropping ceremony turning into a centuries-old tradition is very cool, and believable! I'm honestly starting to wonder if it'll last that long...pretty cool if it did!
Well, on to the next chapter.

Wow. This is so beautifully written that you've left me lost for words. Well done!

This wonderful story is so well written and a believable "next episode" after Endgame. It inspired me to try and write some of my own C/7 fan fiction. I would only change one word. Thank you.

Decided to ring in the new year reading this story. It just seemed appropriate. I absolutely love your stories. Wish you would write more! :)

This story is just achingly beautiful, it has an almost fairytale like quality to it. I first read this years ago, and have remembered it ever since. I am so happy to have rediscovered it, reading it again brought back all the magic of Chakotay and Seven. I've been reading fanfic for over 20 years and this is one of my favorite stories of all time. I wish there was more C/7 like this, you seem to understand the characters so well.

A great fic.
It lived up to a lot of things. Among them was...and still is authentic romance.
The way you brought NY to life with its people, street and small yet warm etablishments was great.
Felt like walkin there myself.
Loved your firm zet gentle approach to C&7 and the way they interacted with each other without looking silly or being exposed to overkill of mush!
Great work kudos and thanx!

Very, very well written. I see this story as part of the 8th season of the show, and a highly credible progression of an abruptly introduced romance. I loved the imagery of the 24th century New York City in winter, and the romanticism of such imagery. I also loved how Seven and Chakotay have such chemistry, and how very much alike they are. The dialogue was as real as real could be. And thanks for finally touching on how they were neurally linked! I was hoping that would come into play in the show, but they just ended the show.

I've just finished reading this story for the second time, and I'm still amazed at it's stunning beauty and clarity, and the incredible depth to the characterization of Chakotay and Seven and their relationship. This is not only one of the best (maybe the best) fanfics I've ever read, it's one of my favorite stories, period. I love this one. Thanks so very much for writing it and sharing it with us!
| Safety Queen chapter 1 . 4/30/2003
I actually read this fic months ago but I just had to read it again. Of all the C/7 fics I've read, you write some of the best! The way you used words to describe every nuance in the story was such that you made it so intimate! Please write some more, maybe a continuation of this fic? Perhaps something that explores what happened between their return to Earth and the events of "Endgame"? _

I enjoyed this very much. Well written and very visual. Admittedly, I didn't care for the "f" word in the description of Seven's beauty. The Star Trek world is so advanced, that it seems a throw-back to our current world of human ugliness. It didn't seem to fit.
The description of a future New York is beautiful. I like the incorporation of the "ancient" with the current.
The scene with Many Words is my favorite. It was nice to meet a close friend of Chakotay's, especially since he has seemed so alone at times on Voyager. I could believe that your character Many Words would actually be one of Chakotay's friends.
I don't know how I feel about the Voyager shrine. I suppose that's because it's an aspect of people that I don't understand-that need to leave a tangible object in reverence. There's a part of me that believes the people of the Star Trek world would have moved beyond that strange custom, but that's really just an opinion, or perhaps a wish.
I appreciated Seven's uncertainty about her future, and her and Chakotay's discomfort with strangers aboard Voyager. Well conveyed.

A lovely story of new beginnings, as Seven and Chakotay begin to weave a real relationship and to contemplate their futures post-Voyager. Characterization is excellent and description is vivid. This is definitely one of my favorite C/7s, and an object lesson to anyone who thinks the pairing can't be done well.
