In the story notes she thanks "Stacey, my Xenaverse editor", other friends and "Gina L. Dartt, One of One, and unarguably the best Sevenfic author there is." Like many authors in the Xenaverse or who came from there she includes a typical altfic content disclaimer[1] but no comprehensive summary.

The story won Silver in the 2003 Janeway Seven Blue Awards in the category Most Romantic Story.

Recs and Reviews

Lunacy says about Arte/Scienza:

VOYAGER alt. fanfic gets a talented new bard with the publication of DiNovia's first Janeway/Seven story - a beautifully crafted, sensual tale which looks at art as the window to the soul. The story begins with a surprised Janeway learning that Voyager's resident Borg has taken up the art of painting and is using the Captain's DaVinci hologram program to learn how. The Maestro himself is more than delighted at the prospect of having the two as students - sensing despite his holographic origins that in teaching the Captain and the Borg about art he might just be able to teach them also about what's in their hearts. DiNovia does an outstanding job here with the characterizations - depicting a Seven of Nine that is curious and scared, poignantly innocent despite a vast intelligence and achingly lonely in a world she does not understand. Her Janeway is a woman who's embraced a similar loneliness by choice if not by circumstance, torn suddenly between the comfortable safety of a loveless life and the risk of sharing herself once again. A fascinating character study of these two heroines.[2]
