I always was partial to B'Elanna Torres and Harry Kim getting together, even though I like Tom Paris and B'Elanna getting together. -- RR

I've always wanted to read Riker/Beverly fic. Not angsty OTP fic so much as an ill-advised hook-up between friends whose canon love interests both seem so frickin' high-maintainance. Always thought they'd be cute.

What "fic"? I just made that up. Point me in the right direction... I just HAVE to read it now!

No. Effing. Way.

Are you saying there's Riker/Wesley fic out there? Or Riker/Picard? Either way: (But especially Riker/Wesley, that's just all kinds of wrong.)

There aren't enough WTF smilies in the world for either of those pairings. Pass the brain bleach, please ....

I beg to differ. How about Picard when he was Wesley's age?

Re: Ships that *never sailed*

Gave it a bit more thought and these are the ones that would've been interesting to me:

-Chekov and Chapel.
-Sulu and Uhura (homage to Mirror, Mirror.)
-Picard and Troi.
-Geordi and Ro.
-Sisko and Nerys.
-O'Brien and Nerys (if Keiko wasn't in the picture, which they fooled with once when Nerys was carrying the O'Briens child).
-Odo and Dax.
-B'Elanna and Chakotay.
-Seven and Tom.
-Phlox and T'Pol.
-Hoshi and Travis.
-Trip and Hoshi.

And for you same-sex 'shippers:

-Sulu and Chekov.
-Khan and Joachim.
-Dukat and Damar.
-Nerys and Dax.
-Seven and Borg Queen.
-Janeway and Seven.
-Neelix and Kim.

Lol. No you don't. The fic I'm thinking of was an appalling Trek 'parody' porno which garnered quite a lot of fame on the old Godawful Trek Fiction site. It's most famous line began "'Surprise!' yelled Riker" and went rapidly downhill from the next clause onward. I'm not linking it, because iirc it involved quite a lot of "jokes" were things about which I have no sense of humour.

Actually, in all my reading of TNG fic, I've found very little Wes slash. Even the Pit of Voles only has one Wes/Picard drabble. I'm a bit surprised. I don't read m/m slash, but ST fandom is rife with it. You'd think we'd be falling over the stuff.

I know I've definitely read fic that paired him with both Harry Kim and Harry Potter in the past though... this may require some masochistic Googling.

ETA: Well that didn't take long, and now I'm going to go cower in a corner for a bit. 'scuse me.

I liked Janeway/Chak and Seven/Doc moreso than what they belatedly did with Seven/Chak.

It just came out of nowhere, and was so forced. Urgh.

There's a great story called Friends and Crewmates in an Idylls zine (put out by Orion Press, if you wanted to track it down). It's set between Generations and First Contact. Not much of a plot, really, but it show a nice, friendly fling between Bev and Will (until Picard turns up unexpectedly one morning!)

Could you have come up with more random pairings?

Your same sex pairings make more sense than your opposite sex pairings, even though all those people are heterosexual, and that is saying something.

I'm not going to comment on the VOY and ENT ships, since I haven't seen enough of those shows, but:

-Chekov and Chapel - why??
-Sulu and Uhura - he clearly had a thing for her in both universes (see "The Naked Time"), but she didn't care, in either of the universes. It was one-sided.
-Picard and Troi - ugh. Why?! Just why? Maybe if there was no Riker/Troi or Picard/Crusher, but this way, it would just have been
-Geordi and Ro - no sexual chemistry at all. I could never see those two as anything but friends. Ro and Riker, yes. Ro and Geordie, no.
-Sisko and Nerys - theoretically, it could have been OK. But never showed any romantic or sexual interest in each other (MU doesn't count). Which might have been really fortunate, since they didn't seem to have any sexual chemistry, and it would have been too predictable ('So we have a male first in command and a female second in command... we have to play up some sexual chemistry! And they first clash and argue, but then they start respecting each other and getting along... it just has to go into a romantic direction, right? I mean it's not like a woman and a man can ever have just a professional and friendly relationship?" )
-O'Brien and Nerys - ugh. The only "attraction" there ever was between them (for something like, what, 5 minutes) was only there because she was carrying his - and Keiko's - baby. And that was just ewww. If there hadn't been for Keiko, there would have been no baby, so there would have never been any "attraction" between them. He is just not her type. And they were never even particularly close friends.
-Odo and Dax. - Again, WHY?? There were no sparks between them, and he was always in love with Kira.

Re: Ships that *never sailed*

Neelix and Kim? That would have been atrocious! I still think Bashir and Garak was the best candidate for a same sex pairing. Not that it would necessarily have lasted, but it would have been cool.

I'm glad that Seven/Doctor never happened. I think the characters were great together, but I prefer them as friends rather than lovers.

Odo and Dax though? That's just crazy enough to work! I wouldn't trade it for Odo/Kira, but it's fun in a sort of "what if?" way.

Picard and Pulaski.

An actual, age-appropriate romance for the captain, kinda like Adama-Roslin, but with fewer things like mutinies and coups to get in the way.
