Layla's Fanfiction.

The five stories of the “Fire” series (Fire, Daze, Hope, Seek and Rapture) are set just after the events of the two “Equinox” episodes. Tom breaks up with B’Elanna after finding out that she cheated on him with her ex-boyfriend, Maxwell Burke (the Equinox’s First Officer). His reaction to that (or lack thereof) leads to a passionate encounter with Chakotay, after which they are found by B’Elanna herself. This starts a chain of events that will lead to them admitting their feelings for each other and having to go through a lot of misunderstandings to build something together.

Despite beginning the stories with a somewhat impromptu round of sex between Tom and Chakotay (which is a bit farfetched, though properly explained), the author still manages to keep the characters true to themselves: Tom acting like an idiot when he is unsure of himself, Chakotay trying to lock away his feelings, B’Elanna venting her anger before realizing the consequences, Harry being incredibly protective. There are a couple of nitpicks I have with the story (Chakotay’s nicknames, some purple prose when it comes to the sex scenes), but overall it is a rather enjoyable read.

Oh wow. It's been a long time since I first posted this story. This was my first NC-17 fic and you bet it had some very choice purple prose in it. ;) I'm still thrilled that it had an audience even in 2008. I know it's been a while since you made this rec, but just wanted to thank you for the kind words... and to let you know of the current url of my fanfiction site:

You're very welcome - this was one of my constant re-reads during my Tom/Chakotay phase.

Thank you for the new site link - I try to check links periodically to see if they still work, but as you can imagine this is not an easy task given the size of the comm...
