Delta Quadrant of Venus
Welcome to Delta Quadrant of Venus (DQV), a Star Trek: Voyager fan fiction site dedicated to J/7 stories -- that is to stories dealing with the relationship we all knew was simmering between Captain Kathryn Janeway of the Federation Starship Voyager and her lovely blond Borg, Seven of Nine (formerly Tertiary Adjunct of Unimatrix 01). As fans know, Voyager ended its run in May, 2001, but some of us still have a few more stories to tell.
Please drop me a line if you like what you see, have suggestions for improvements, would like me to consider adding a link to a new J/7 site, want my philosophy regarding Fan Fiction (a.k.a., "Textual Poaching"), want to chat about the J/7 subtext, and/or if you want to find out where the title of this Web site comes from. Otherwise, just feel free to lurk and remain anonymous. Either way, my heartfelt thanks to those of you who are still stopping by for a visit.

FanFiction by Tenderware: The place to find my contributions to stories about Kathryn Janeway and Seven of Nine. It begins with my very first fanfic story ever, "Sensations," and ends with.....who knows?
The "Sustenance" Couplet (two stories....and that's it, I think)
Sustenance -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Drama). Another "first-encounter" story. Rescued after weeks stranded on a desolate planet, Janeway tries to come to terms with what she and Seven were forced to do to survive. Warning: This story is for ADULTS ONLY. (Posted May 31, 1999.)
Adaptations: A Sequel to Sustenance -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Drama). Their love helped Janeway and Seven survive several weeks on a desolate planet. Will it also sustain them now that they're back on Voyager and confronted by a crew that seems incapable of adapting to the captain's new relationship with the former Borg? Warning: This story is for ADULTS ONLY. (Posted February 6, 2000.)The Standalone Stories
Sensations -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Comedy). A "first-encounter" story. Janeway's gratitude for Seven's birthday gift leads to some unexpected emotional repercussions. Warning: This story is for ADULTS ONLY. (Posted May 16, 1999.)
Bride of Arachnia -- VOY J/7 NC-17 (Comedy). Another "first-encounter" story. When Janeway returns as Queen Arachnia and tries to get Seven to loosen up by playing Constance Goodheart, they unwittingly uncover a seamier side to Paris's "Captain Proton" holodeck program. Warning: This story is for ADULTS ONLY. (Posted September 19 & 20, 1999.)
FanFiction by Close Personal Friends and Family: The place for stories by some of my favorite people about two of my favorite characters.
Into My Arms by EmptyFlask -- VOY J/7 NC-17: A devastating injury, and Janeway's bedside manner, teach Seven much more about being human than she ever expected. Warning: This story is for ADULTS ONLY. (Posted May 22, 1999.)
The Art Gallery: My place for J/7 fan art. Currently, I have two "galleries" open. In the "Romance Gallery," you'll find the more somber images depicting affectionate moments between Janeway and Seven. The "Pulp Art Gallery" houses images from my series parodying the cover art from the lesbian pulp fiction of the 50s and 60s.
Please Note: My appropriation of Star Trek characters
and of images of the actors portraying them is meant as a celebration of
J/7 subtext. No disrespect is intended, and I hope none will be taken.
I have produced and distributed this artwork for free and purely for the
enjoyment of visitors to my site. This artwork isn't authorized or endorsed
by Paramount, Kate Mulgrew, or Jeri Ryan. (Please refer to the disclaimers
on the gallery pages for more information.)
Why NOT with Captain Janeway?: The place to debate why a J/7 romance could and/or should happen (inspired by Jeri Ryan's comments to the contrary). If you've posted your own thought-piece on this topic, please send me a link. With the addition of my Xena finale commentary, consider this the place to debate subtext, fan fiction, and things done by The Powers That Be.
Why NOT with Captain Janeway?: My Rejoinder to Jeri Ryan, by Tenderware -- In this article, I respond to comments made by Jeri Ryan at Fedcon 7 (May 1999), where she categorically denied that Janeway and Seven would ever have a romantic relationship. This is for J/7'ers everywhere: a plea for "plausible open-endedness" and for more novel responses to the lesbian question. (Posted May 22, 1999.)
J/7 FanFic Resources: The place to get information about Janeway and Seven, get help regarding the canon (past Voyager episodes and the "pro-fic" stories), and find out more about the philosophy of fan fiction. Link suggestions welcomed.
"The Janeway/Seven FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)" -- This may be premature since I don't recall folks asking too many questions about J/7, except maybe "Why Not?" (see above). But I'll be anticipating a couple of questions here and there and providing responses to them, and I welcome visitors to email more questions and suggestions. In general, therefore, this page will be "under construction" for a while.
Just a few of my favorite places to visit -- Links to other J/7 FanFic sites, to Other Voyager FanFic sites, and to other Must-See Voyager Related sites.

This page is from the Delta Quadrant of Venus website. The site was originally hosted on AOL's hometown pages, which AOL shut down on October 31, 2008. The DQV site was resurrected and moved to this new home on November 30, 2008 because fans asked to have it back. Thank you for your continued interest in my stories. I'm truly touched. --T'ware
