When Kathryn left, we agreed to meet again when Voyager returned from the Yaris Nebula. I waited at a cafe in Venice for her to arrive. I wanted to make it official and propose. She didn’t show up.

I’M SORRY BUT

HE WAS GOING TO PROPOSE??  

I reread this often and just die all over again

She’s back now; is he still going to or….??

I NEED THIS BOOK IN MY LIFE LIKE RIGHT NOW

Yesterday I Finished "The Eternal Tide"

I was GREAT & AMAZING!!! I luv it!!!
I dont want to spoil everything so I will write in a way that people who read it understand and others (I hope) dont…
the first 100 pages or so are simple parallel stories but later you see the dots connected and when you are around page 200 you are like OMG OMG THIS IS WHY THAT AND THIS MAKES TOTALLY SENSE and WILL THIS HAPPEN etc.
during the last 60 pages I was like “OMG WHEN WILL THIS BOOK END” NOT because it was terrible but because I wanted to know how the hell does it END?!?!? (well I already had read the very last page)
the only thing that puzzels me is: really 4 ships? Wouldnt 1 be sufficient?
I am sorry because of Eden, but IMO it was always clear it could never be both of them either Janeway or Eden (I will miss you)
and I knew IT, I knew when Chakotay would see Kathryn the first time that he would react like that!!! I AM JUST THAT AWESOME!!!!!

there are not so many JC moments (I counted 7) in there like I though would be but the once in there are pure perfection!!!!!!
“one breath, one moment, one day at a time” will have you on your knees when you read it again; I almost threw my book against the wall and would have started crying and weeping desperately

if I had not know the end (or the last page)


TET is great, not great in the way Full Circle is (FC was good in cracking & tearing you up) but in so many other ways… TET combined great mystery (keeping you guessing), a little headache (remembering the names of the ships), almost to the same way tearing you up (esp near the end!) like FC (but not so extreme) and giving you a damn fine thrill while reading…

AS A JANEWAY & CHAKOTAY FAN YOU HAVE TO READ IT
AS A CHAKOTAY FAN YOU HAVE TO READ IT
AS A JANEWAY FAN YOU HAVE TO READ IT
AS AN EDEN FAN YOU HAVE TO READ IT
JUST
DAMN IT
READ IT
!!!!!!!!!

since the greater mass of my followers are JC fans here are the pages you are going find the moments:
page 246!; 304; 307; 332!!; 365; Epilogue (381)

Books I recommend reading before this:
Full Circle (highly recommended!)
a little bit of Children of the Storm, but I guess the basic knowledge about Eden will be enough (memory-beta can help you)
if you read String Theory you have even less problem understanding it (and making wild suggestions about the mystery something I like to do & did)…no worries, Ms Beyer () does explain it well

Will you marry me, Kirsten Beyer?

I’m finally getting around to reading “The Eternal Tide” and I just cannot tear myself away from this book!! The last Voyager novel I read was “Full Circle” because I couldn’t bear the thought of reading the books without Captain Janeway… though, to hold my own in the tumultuous world of fandom I do know the basic plots. I’m sure they’re excellent, however, as I’ve loved Kirsten Beyer since “Isabo’s Shirt” in the anthology “Distant Shores.”

ANYWAY. Everyone - everrryyyone - needs to read “The Eternal Tide” and lose themselves in the wonderful, intriguing storyline and fabulous happy ending for the JCers out there.

Aaah. Love love love.

:)

Fuck yeah Kirsten Beyer!!!!!! She’s…

STILL BOLDLY GOING
