Summary: It's pretty obvious what this story is about from the title. Deanna is introduced to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

A/N: This is my second fanfiction, but the first one I've ever posted. It's not finished yet, and I'm not sure where it's going. I have a couple of ideas, but I'm quite busy right now so it may be a while before I update it. If you have any positive comments, let me know. Also, if you have negative comments, or just plain didn't like it, let me know, but give me a reason. I'll try to use any comments or suggestions you may have to improve the quality of this.

Deanna and the Chocolate Factory

Part One

She was bored. It was that simple. She had been trying to figure out what was wrong with her for hours, before she finally realised she had nothing to do. No appointments with patients, no meetings with friends, no journals to read. It was mid-afternoon, so most of her friends would probably still be working. Finally, Deanna decided to go to Ten Forward and see what was doing there.

Walking into the lounge, Deanna saw it was fairly busy. Looking around, she noticed Will Riker, the Enterprise's first officer, reading something a PADD. She walked over to his table.

"Mind if I join you?" she asked him.

Looking up, Will smiled when he saw Deanna and pushed out the chair opposite him with his foot. Deanna took the hint and sat down. "Anything interesting?"

"Nope, just the monthly supply report from Sickbay. What can I do for you De?"

"I was bored. Thought I might see what was going on here. Any suggestions for something to do?"

"Hmm". Will thought for a moment. "I think I have something. Come with me."

They got up, left Ten Forward and headed for the turbolift.


"Yes De?"

"Where are we going?"

"My quarters. I have a book I think you might find interesting."

Thoroughly confused, but curious as to what the book was, she followed Will through the ship and into his quarters. As the doors shut and Will went to get the book, Deanna sat on his couch and waited. After ten minutes of searching, she was starting to get impatient.

"Ah!" Will called out triumphantly as he walked over to where Deanna was sitting. "Here it is."

He held the book out. Deanna looked at it, but found that his hands were covering the title. It was a real, paper book, that looked fairly new. She looked up into Will's smiling face. There was a glint of amusement in his eyes that Deanna couldn't quite understand.

"Where did you get this?" she asked him curiously.

"Replicated it," he replied a little too proudly. "It was originally published in the 1960s and was written by an author called Roald Dahl. It was apparently quite popular."

Looking back to the book, Deanna took it from his hands and read the title.
