star trek: voyager fan fiction

recommendations by allaire mikháil

date: 20 Nov 2009



Star Trek: Voyager was a show I watched religiously - until Seven of Nine came on board and Katryn Janeway's character went through an unexplainable change from competent captain to unreasonable tyrant. I had a thing for Chakotay (crazily enough mostly because of the German dubbing - that voice!) and considered myself mainly a Janeway & Chakotay shipper. Sadly, though, good J/C fan fiction is incredibly hard to find. The next best choice for me was Chakotay/Paris, although the very same thing applied here - a shortage of good slash fiction. Most stories I found painted Chakotay as the bigger, stronger, alpha male while Paris, the bottom, was written as a feminized, pretty victim of a bad childhood and/or prison rape (which in 2371 is evidently the norm, not the exception in UFP penal settlements). There are a few exceptions that have none or at least just a few of those clichés - you can find them recommended here.



The main pairing on this page is
Chakotay / Tom Paris.

Title: Falling Story Length: ~ 87 KB
Series: none Rating: NC-17
Category: Slash Warnings: none
Pairing: Chakotay / Tom Paris Time Frame: Season 3
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama, Hurt/Comfort, Romance Recommended: 23 May 2000
Summary: After Tom and Chakotay have an accident on an away mission, Tom has to get them out of it. The after-effects leave him with a problem only Chakotay can help with.
Review: Amirin's Tom Paris is a strange mixture of strong and vulnerable - strong enough to save Chakotay and to go through an ordeal taxing his body to the limit - and yet unable to sleep unless his nightmares are laid to rest by Chakotay's presence. Almost a bit too sweet at times, it has none of the bad-Admiral-Paris or raped-in-Auckland clichés and shows us a slowly developing relationship that, while heavily based on comfort, gives the impression of being balanced enough to last.

Title: Cold Comfort Story Length: ~ 152 KB
Series: none Rating: NC-17
Category: Slash Warnings: child abuse, graphic m/m sex, references to past rape
Pairing: Chakotay / Tom Paris Time Frame: Season 2
Genres: Action/Adventure, Drama, First Time, Hurt/Comfort Recommended: 23 May 2000
Summary: A transporter malfunction during a survival course assignment leaves Chakotay and Tom Paris alone in a cave on an ice planet.
Review: This story contains two of the most (ab)used clichés in Star Trek: Voyager slash fiction: Tom Paris was abused by his father during his childhood, and (of course) raped in the penal colony at Auckland. But Kate uses them so charmingly you simply cannot not like the story. She also has written a sequel, "Tempest Tossed" (no longer just C/P), that deals with the episode "Resolutions".
