Of the Night: Chapter Three - Fanfiction Friday

Welcome back to Fanfiction Friday! I've started here with a set of drabble's, a drabble being a short story of 100 words exactly, no more, no less.

This story is called Of the Night, and can be read fully here. Each chapter is unrelated, and this story is continually growing. It is a Star Trek: Voyager story, and explores small moments that I believe could have occurred between Captain Kathryn Janeway and her First Officer, Commander Chakotay, if the show had decided to explore their relationship, rather than ignoring it as they did. They all take place either at night or in the early hours of waking. Enjoy!

Previous Chapters: 1, 2

“You could have been killed, Kathryn. It’s my job to keep you safe.”

“No, your job is to make sure that the ship is safe when I’m not onboard.”

“I wasn’t talking about being your first officer.” He reached for her hand but she pulled away.

“If this is clouding your professional judgement, then we shouldn’t be here.”


“Goodnight, Commander.” The doors swished closed behind her.

That night, both were restless and couldn’t sleep - not until she slipped back into his quarters and under the covers. As he wrapped his arms around her protectively, she murmured:

“I’m sorry.”
