Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

I just finished, and I enjoyed it all. I think you did a very good job with a fully character-driven story. The conversations felt real and convincing, and the character interaction did not feel at all forced. The "quiet", contained nature of the tale, without wider implications beyond the people involved and their personal issues, was refreshing and the limited number of characters really helped focus attention on the issues at hand. The emotion is communicated well, too- I think you are quite a skilled writer.

The counseling is also very convincing. I agree with The Badger- your tale is better than TNG usually was with this.

Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

Thanks, Nasat--very much!



BTW, I would also think that fans who've read the Destiny trilogy, et al, would be interested in Ezri's first meeting with the man who would one day become her Chief Medical Officer on the Aventine.

I must admit, the story spung out of a desire to answer my own question of why Ezri had hand-picked Simon to be the CMO, out of all her options. (I had been wondering why she didn't pick Julian--but then I'd learned about what had happened in Unjoined....*sigh*)

I figured there must have been some kind of connection, some element of familiarity. And then I remembered Simon's place in the Star Trek canon. And...the rest is history.

Okay--anyone else want to express overall thoughts?

If not--thank you all for your time, and words!

Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

Thanks for the link - I really enjoyed this one! I usually abhor psychobabble as much as technobabble but you took us through a couple twists and turns I didn't expect. It's always gratifying to see seomeone else in Starfleet through the lens of time after they "guest-star" in a series episode and disappear. If a universe exists for every decision that gets made it makes sense there is a backstory and better yet - adventures ahead for everyone in the multi- Trek-verses.

I've vented spleen elsewhere about NOT ALL FANFIC BEING EQUAL (from the relative safety of not actually producing any myself!) but you're becoming an author I'll be keeping an eye out for. I'm also enjoying your Aventine adventure now too!

Regards, and keep it coming!

Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

So I just read this story and I thought it was wonderful. The characterizations were excellent and the story was interesting. I especially loved the effective characterization of Julian and Ezri

Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

Wow! Thanks, MHT1138--glad you liked it!

(Somehow....I hadn't expected this older tale of mine to be brought back to page 1, after all this time. )

I have a lot of other tales focusing on Ezri--as she's my favorite character to write for. Hope they're to your liking, too.

Re: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine--The Cleanest Food To Find

Thanks again!

BTW...if you'd like to read the other three in chronological order (they are in a kind of loose "trilogy"), I'd recommend you read:

"Of Power And Passion" first,

"A Rendezvous With Destiny" second (be warned...that one's REALLY long!),

and "Serenity Prayer" last.

This is very good. Both Bashir and Dax are in character (not so sure about Tarses though)

Thanks.

(As for Tarses...well, I guess it's a kind of transition between him in "The Drumhead" and him in the books....)
