So cruel. Did 7 ask for Janeway to reject both her and Chakotay and drive them into each other's arms? No!
I'm still in shock they J/C'd it for reals in Treklit, never expected that. Not because there wasn't reason for it but because Treklit seemed hellbent on Janeway getting nothing but pain. Hopefully in the next book(s) it's just a normal, good relationship and not an angst excuse like with the TNG couples.
