    I was persuing this wonderful fanfic for a second time and realized that she had started writing the sequel Home :). So far there's only 8 chapters, but it's GOOD.

    Find it at http://www.picard-crusher.net/HOME.htm

    Sure, in the MU for example that's very true. However, in every AU, except the Mirror Universe, we see the characters act within the core of themselves: in Twilight, T'Pol is about duty, obligation, self-sacrifice and loyalty. Her character doesn't change drastically. In E2, T'Pol is still about these things, just picks a different path. Her character doesn't change drastically.

    Archer did in this story, and its sequel.

    Yes, it's clear T'Pol dislikes Archer because he's abusive, including to a boy he thinks is his son. I guess my argument is twofold:
    * T'Pol would never marry him if that were true.
    * Archer doesn't seem to be that kind of a person. And I'm not sure, because it's not made clear, why he's like that, other than that's the writer's view of the character.

    AATP's intent was to punish a character, imo. And it's why I indicated this was not good story telling.

    There are many good stories that fall within excellent T/T'P writing - Quills has some good stuff, as does Zane. In their stories everyone is a hero. Refreshing!

    Here are some of my favorite stories:

    Just putting in my vote for ghiaman74's fantastic Dominion War tale, Nightingale's Song. Fantastic action, well drawn characters, drama, angst, and oh yeah... The Badlands!

    The story is posted here on the fanfic board. :)

    DavidFalkayn's USS Sutherland series offers a marvelous mix of canon and original characters aboard one of the most professional yet fun-filled starships in the Fleet. These people work hard, and play harder. :D These stories are very much worth your time.

    "Star Trek: Avalon" - by Jason K.S. Hauck
    http://www.geocities.com/trekfan1975/FanFiction_Engineering.html

    Synopsis: 3 Years have passed since the Dominion War. The signatories of the one-time "Alpha Quadrant Alliance" have all granted Starfleet & The U.F.P. safe passage across their territory to explore on their behalf. The U.S.S. Voyager has safely returned to Earth. Advances have been made. Now that the war is over, some are free to resume making long term arrangements.

    Sophie Grimes & her fledgling crew have been hand-picked from throughout the tattered remainder of Starfleet to handle this important five year mission.

    The U.S.S. Avalon-C NCC 27936-C, (an upgraded Loknar-style starship with modern Sovereign-Class attributes) has been slapped together by the S.C.E. & dispatched on a TOS-style adventure to the furthest reaches of charted Beta Quadrant space to peer over the edge of the detectable horizon toward the Delta Quadrant.

    Just remember, Trouble comes in ~all~ sizes and shapes....

    Hey hellsgate, I was interested to see that you had posted a link here in the ff recom's to an off-site story of yours, but when I went there to read this Avalon instead I found a Visionaries fic by somebody other then you. Huh? What's up with that, and where's this Avalon? Sounds interesting and I'd like to read it, thanks...

    The only Avalon I knew about was a fic that took place in the far future and used the "End of the Federation" setting that Andromeda did. It was a pretty good fic, which took a lot from Firefly (or Blake 7 depending on how you look at it), but unfortunately after a season and a half they called it quits.

    Appreciate it; it just made me go back and re-read what you'd already written, which is never a chore. :)

    I highly recommend Juzam Djinn's fantastic Supermax series about the Federation's Sundancer Penal Colony. It's Star Trek meets Oz, and it's as entertaining as it is thought provoking. And oh, remember, don't get stuck in the chow line behind the Klingons. Bad things, man... bad things. ;)

    Just putting in a good word for DavidFalkayn’s new Star Trek: Lexington series. Set aboard the original Constitution-class USS Lexington under the command of Commodore Bob Wesley, it’s a throwback to the rough-and-tumble days of TOS, and it’s one helluva ride.

    Well drawn characters, though provoking situations, and plenty of action combine to make it a series that is very much worth your time.

    I have to stand in line and recommend JM1776's Liberty fics. Well-written, with excellent plots and great character development.

    Naraht's How To Advance Your Career Through Marriage, When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again, and Pearl (only ones I can remember, and I'm not sure about that last title) are wonderful. Yes, they're P/C, but also so much more. The detail, the plot...*sigh* they're just awesome. I'd like to credit her and mackillian with putting the little thought nugget in my brain, unconsciously, which propelled me to try my hand at fanfic as well.

    Speaking of mackillian, her Snow Falling Softly is also incredible. More P/C, but the way it's written and the different take it has on certain episodes is worth the reading.

    I'm adding a shout-out for Rigil Kent's latest work-in-progress Divergent Paths. A great story and lots of Trip/T'Pol goodness...for those of you who appreciate such things, of course. :D
