Delta Quadrant of Venus is Tenderware's J/7 website.

"The site was originally hosted on AOL's hometown pages, which AOL shut down on October 31, 2008. The DQV site was resurrected and moved to this new home on November 30, 2008 because fans asked to have it back. Thank you for your continued interest in my stories. I'm truly touched. --T'ware"

DQV hosts Tenderware's fanfiction, her art gallery with J/7 manips, commentary, and The Janeway/Seven Fanfiction FAQ. The site also hosts J/7 stories by EmptyFlask and Otter.

Site description from Loving Is Perfection:
Delta Quadrant of Venus: Oh my... what I can say about the lovely human being that hosts this site? Uhmmm, she is my J/7 fan fiction goddess for one thing. I can honestly say that if I hadn't been introduced to J/7 fanfic by her MARVELOUS story "Sustenance" I don't know if I would even be reading, much less writing J/7. "Sustenance" is wonderful, its sequel is wonderful, Tenderware is wonderful and her site is wonderful. Check it out.[1]

  • Adaptations: A Sequel to Sustenance -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Drama). Their love helped Janeway and Seven survive several weeks on a desolate planet. Will it also sustain them now that they're back on Voyager and confronted by a crew that seems incapable of adapting to the captain's new relationship with the former Borg?

(Posted September 19 & 20, 1999.)
    Lunacy wrote in her review that "combining humor with passion in a thoroughly indulgent little tale, this one pushes all the right buttons."[2]
  • The Journey Home -- VOY J/7 PG-13 (Romance). A short first-kiss tale. After several years absence, Q returns to Voyager to make Janeway an offer. Lesbian theme but not sexually explicit. (Posted October 17, 1999.)
  • Rain -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Comedy). Another "first-encounter" story. Janeway and Seven get caught in a downpour and become....very wet. (Posted October 29, 1999.)

    One reviewer describes the story as "A very funny and somewhat metatextual story where Janeway discovers that she is the star of a fanfiction community within Voyager. Tenderware gently mocks some of the fanfiction tropes, including one of her own stories, even while embracing the joys of fandom too."[3]
  • By Thirds -- VOY J/J/7 NC-17 (Romance). A first-time story. A menage-à-trois with a twist ensues after an accident separates the Starfleet-disciplined Captain Janeway from a surprisingly fun-loving Kathryn Janeway, who declares her true feelings for Seven of Nine and leaves the Borg feeling suddenly torn in her affections.
