Things I love about Kristen's "Eternal Tide"
 
Hey... I KNOW we have another thread on this, but I don't know how to do spoiler tags and so I thought a new thread was warranted to keep Teacake from cutting my heart out with a spoon. ;)

Ok... things I loved.

#1 JANEWAY'S BACK well Duh! :bolian: :bolian: :bolian:

#2 and CHAKOTAY'S GOT HER! :drool: :drool: :drool:

#3 The Q have CONFIRMED that if Admiral Janeway hadn't changed the time line then everyone would have been assimliated by the BORG.

Anyone else have things they love about this book that they'd like to share?

I finally have reading time today on the train!! I am so excited!!!

I will take pictures.

JRule'z you didn't expect me to NOT read the thread did you? Also I keep glancing at the one in Treklit through my fingers so I've absorbed rather a lot of spoilers now, LOL

I've noticed it puts the smack-down on anti-Janeway trolls.

Aside from the above mentioned, I loved the metaphysics and the cool science stuff in this novel. And the whole cavern with the glowing star map was such a cool image. Wouldn't that be cool if in observatories they had hallways that lit up with constellations?

And yes, Q! And Q, and Q, and...Q! :D In my mind there can never be enough Q.

I must confess that I read the end of the book first. I just could not help myself. Lots of shippy, squishy goodness.

It was nice that Eden let Chakotay see Kathryn for the first time alone.

Is the any reason that i can find the word "latrine" from a word jumble of Eternal Tide?

I'm guilty of this too; I just couldn't resist :p. I love that Janeway and Chakotay are finally back together again and that they're so happy.

Plus, the first time that they say "I love you" to each other? Adorable:adore:

Hey I can read Janeway/Chakotay fics for free online by the dozen. ;)

I loved that Kes(!) suddenly appeared and helped KJ w/ her "body image" at just the right time. Of course I loved the J/C stuff, and hope they can maintain their relationship. And I love lots that KJ will be an Admiral again (if a little surprised, lol).

Spirit guides show you what you need to see.

I also liked the fact that the child had SUCH an impact on his parents.

She's not Fleet commander for nothing! ;)

I could NOT read the end first. I was so afraid the spoiler in the other thread was a trap, especially when the next line in the photograph of the book mentioned "BOTH" of their deaths. :wtf:

I loved the fact that Kes made it home and that Ocampa was a beautiful place again.

More so, I loved seeing Janeway's reaction to Kes & Seven. She had no compunction against wrapping her arms around Kes, but was as reserved with Seven as Seven was with her...

:sigh:

... well

... between those two one doesn't need anything except...

:hugegrin:

...that smile.

Sounds like "the room of requirement" to me. ;)

That was so moving, seeing how much Q was willing to sacrifice for the sake of his son. To me it was the classic example of how a parent will give everything for their child, and Q's rage afterwards made complete sense because of that fact.

Plus the line "You have made an enemy of me today, Kathryn Janeway" is like literary ice water. Brilliant!:bolian:

My spirit guide is a toilet?

If B'Elanna's spirit guide was a toilet, methinks that she wouldn't have been able to kill it so easily.

And of course, what I love most about The Eternal Tide that it did bring back Kathryn Janeway, even though the (then) editors said after Bef. Dishonor was published there were no plans to do so. (Of course now are maybe new editors, so it seems those (non) plans were changed.) Guess one never knows, does one, lol.

I wouldn't want Q as an enemy. He can literally erase Janeway from existence with a thought. Is there going to be something that prevents him from doing this?
