In preparation for NaNoWriMo (five and half hours away...) I have finally finished posting the Returning Saga (so far) to the AO3.

For those unaware of The Saga, I started it back in 1999, as a "homecoming" story. Seriously, it's an entire sub-genre of Voy fiction. "Returning" is very long, with individual parts for all the main crewmembers (plus my OFC), as well as three parts at the beginning and a projected three at the end (a total of sixteen chapters overall). At heart, it's a J/C fic, although there are various other pairings as well. There's romance, adventure, conspiracy, legal argument, and plenty to keep you interested.

It's fabulous (to me) to note that the Story So Far is over 100,000 words long at this point. With somewhere between a third to a half of the story written and posted, I don't think there's going to be a problem with having enough material for 50,000 words during NaNo. I've got the first two parts all blocked out. The third - Kit's - is causing me a little more difficulty so far. Of course it would.

Anyway, I need to go and work on dinner. I have many thoughts on the impendingness of NaNo and may well be back with more wordiness soon.

It was called a 'saga' for a reason.

After ten years in the Delta Quadrant, Voyager has returned home to a rather less rapturous welcome than they might have hoped. In some quarters, in fact, the welcome was downright hostile. The former Maquis crewmembers were acquitted at a Court Martial on treason charges, but the entire Voyager family find that re-integrating into Alpha Quadrant society is no easy thing.

Although they all have supporters among their families and friends, they also seem to have enemies - and in some very unexpected places. In the end, it all comes down to a single question: is coming home the wonderful thing that for so long, they thought it would be?

'Returning' was last updated in 2002, halfway through its planned run. Since then, I've often thought about working on it, but haven't. There is, in fact, no prose at all written from the end of 'Adjustments' onwards. That's what I'll be starting on November 1st.

Also, I've grown up a lot over the past eight years. I've changed. Once consequence of this is that... I actually no longer think the planned ending works at all. So I'm pondering my way towards an entirely different ending, and I'm not there yet. This could be... 'fun'.

In honour of the holiday that most of you celebrated yesterday, except for those who celebrated it last month and those who don't celebrate, but which my family is celebrating tonight, I give you a fic written ten years ago.

Title: Commander Chakotay's Thanksgiving
Fandom: Star Trek: Voyager
Rating: G
Warnings: None needed.

Based on Chester Chipmunk's Thanksgiving by Barbara Williams, illustrated by Kay Chauro.

(Our thanksgiving this year is kind of Chester-y: we started with inviting four people, two couldn't come, so we invited another couple, who are coming, and now so are the first couple!)

Title: La Clemenza di Caterina
Fandom: Star Trek: Voyager
Pairing: Janeway/Chakotay
Originally written and posted: May – July 1999
Rating: PG-13
Disclaimer: Star Trek belongs to Paramount, McBride is an OC.

Notes: Acknowledgments to WA Mozart and Pietro Metastasio for the original, and to Rosamund Illing who sang the role of Vitellia (La Clemenza di Tito) in Melbourne, May 1999, in a way that reminded me so totally of Kathryn Janeway, and inspired this effort. (Never mind that Chakotay is cast as Vitellia in this version – it wouldn’t have worked any other way).. This story takes place in an alternate universe similar to the one in TOS 'Mirror, Mirror', but even more like that in Diane Duane’s TNG novel Dark Mirror.

La Clemenza di Caterina - An 'opera' in two acts, with Prologue and Epilogue )
