I’m a little surprised that I haven’t had more readers and reviews on my latest J/7 story. My theory (and I could be totally wrong) is that people aren’t as interested in reading about the characters once they are already in the relationship. I understand this from one persepctive, as I have tended to gravitate towards the stories where there is more build up and anticipation, the falling in love, the first sexual encounter, etc. However, it also troubles me, because it seems to set up a pattern in our brains that the “being” of being in a relationship is somehow less exciting, when that isn’t the case. I wanted to represent the dynamics of change within an already establishd relationship and show that it can still be super exciting and sexy. I feel good about it, but thinking for my next story, I will either a) come up with a brand new idea for a building-up-to-the relationship story between Seven and Janeway, or b) do more one-shots, or c) try my hand at another fandom (man, do I miss Body of Proof…). Let me know what you guys think. I’m really itching to write something new, and as always, truly appreciate all of your ideas and feedback. So, what do you want to read? Thanks!
…annnnnd I’m gonna have to write a fic about this now. Thanks! (:
Man, Voyager got harsh in the later seasons
