So, this is the first time I am using my journal to post something that happened to me recently.

I decided to go ahead and spring for Season's 4-6 of Star Trek Voyager because I had been dreaming about B/7 story lines for the past week or so. I haven't gotten them yet but I look forward to watching some of those old episodes.

Yesterday I sat down and wrote almost 2,000 words to a new B/7 fic in about an hour. The words just seemed to flow, and I barely made any changes after giving is a read-through.

Then this morning I went to breakfast with some friends to a new restaurant and decided I would have pancakes. Upon reading the menu I saw banana pancakes and decided to get them. For those who don't know banana pancakes are B'Elanna's favorite. The really odd thing about this... the menu had them listed as #B7!!!!!

So I was a little tickled about that but couldn't share because the folks I was having breakfast with were not really fans, nor were they aware of the fact that I write fan fiction. We went on a brewery tour and while in the beer caves a friend took my picture. When she showed it to me she said "It look like your in Star Trek or something." Totally unexpected comment coming from her - I don't think she even watched the show.

So I'm going to take this as a sign that I should devote some time to writing B/7 fic. I have an unfinished B/7 and the new piece so far and plan to finish both and just keep going. So, all you B/7 fans get ready for some new fic!

I know, right! It was a very strange set of circumstances to say the least.

I finally got my head out of the sand and joined Voq_Je_Bang so I will be posting my stories there and on P&P.

B/7... Alexis/Tory. I"m good either way. *veg*

Too right! There are so many similarities between these pairings. I am also planning to work on the longer Alexis/Tory piece as well.

I feel a certain kinship with these characters and their struggle to find themselves. All of these recent events just made it more apparent that I need to use that connection and put it down on paper.

Yes, it was actually quite difficult not to squee about it! But it definitely made my day. Thanks so much for commenting! I really do need to get back to the B7 love and finish my Fics. Hopefully real life will cooperate. Thanks again!
