Chakotay fic alert!
BBSpost Speaking in Tongues
Speaking in Tongues: Someone is planning an assassination at Daystrom Institute's Annual Science Symposium. The question is just who is planning to kill whom.
Okay, it's a TNG story, but we've reached the point in our Reasons of the Heart universe where we introduce Chakotay as a love interest for Beverly Crusher. For this incarnation of Chakotay, we take the character as written through the end of the series and create our version of what his life was like after Voyager's return to the Alpha Quadrant. The only major item we ignore is Season Seven's reference to a sister. Since every scrap of canon prior to that has Chakotay's only living relative as a cousin in Ohio, that's what we go with; otherwise all Voyager canon through Endgame is assumed. In terms of TNG canon, the Reasons of the Heart universe assumes canon up through Insurrection and breaks off from there. So, we can all happily pretend that Nemesis never happened.
This story follows the events in Incendiary, but it's not necessary to have read that story as each of our stories are written (intended) as stand-alone stories. There's hopefully more depth and a sense of continuity if you've read previous stories in the Reasons of the Heart universe, but the story should be able to stand on its own.
