Voyager fanfic alert!
Twist of Fate: Chaos
Chaos: Chaos Theory becomes reality when Voyager's crew finds itself lost in Chaotic space. This is a rewrite/novelization of the episode The Fight (SPOILER ALERT-- but changes have been made).
The Twist of Fate series assumes canon for Voyager up to the episode Timeless and breaks off from there. The Twist of Fate stories weave through some of the canon episodes (the series is currently up to Season 6 in terms of the most recent installments) but is an alternate universe.
The character of Chakotay was initially described as 'spanning two cultures, part of both yet belonging to neither.' Unfortunately, that dual nature was never really brought out in the series. Since the Starfleet uniform and his duties on Voyager would be representative of the modern world, we created an original character specifically to reflect the spiritual/traditional part of his life. The intent of this series was to develop the spiritual side of Chakotay's nature to more evenly match the modern aspect of his nature--to balance him out, so to speak. It is a series of romance stories (the ones that can be edited down to PG-13 at any rate), so it is primarily focused on Chakotay and his relationship with our original character. There is a minor thread of K/7 that pops up throughout the series as well, showing how we think a budding romantic relationship might have worked for those two characters.
This story follows the events in Wyrd and What Comes Naturally, but it's not necessary to have read any of them as our stories are written (intended) to stand on their own. We are introducing an original character, so each story does build more of her background. There's hopefully more depth and a sense of continuity if you've read previous stories in the Twist of Fate universe, but it should still be an enjoyable romance story regardless.
This is an edited down version of the original. If you're over 18 and interested in the non-PG-13 version of the story (or in the stories that couldn't be edited down to PG-13 at all), it can be found at Whoa Nellie's Sci-Fi Romance Fanfiction website in the Voyager index. There are links from our fanfiction.net author page to our websites (since they contain R and NC-17 material, we don't link directly to there from BBS).
