The credit for the format of this story goes to Robert Picardo, who once joked in a Starlog interview that although Paris and Chakotay used to dislike each other, they had since made up and were touring together in Kiss of the Spider Woman. He meant the musical, but that made me think of Manuel Puig's novel-in-dialect, so this story was born. The title is a deliberate reference to Della Van Hise's K/S novel of the same name, and that's as much of a warning as you're going to get. This is for Siubhan, Laura, and Pam, for their contributions to the C/P oeuvre -- and for Sue, because I never would have written it without those conversations about Chakotay. Thanks to Joan and Lynn for editorial assistance. Paramount owns everything else herein, including the characters and shuttle.
Recs and Reviews
Today we'd like to recommend three fascinating stories about one of the most mistunderstood guys in fanfic: Chakotay. Yeah, so he's complacent and underdeveloped on the show, but he didn't have to be like that. For a more complex view of his character, and some excellent Maquis action, check out War Crimes by VoyWriter, Killing Time by YCD, and Truth and Dare by VoyWriter. (The stories form a loose series in the order listed.)
