Star Trek: Picard Season 3

Seven/Shaw Stories



Behind Those Eyes (R)   -   A story told in three segments, seven years ago, two years ago, and now (aka just before Picard S3 starts). What if their relationship started way before we thought it did? Think of Cruel Summer (the show, not the song) in how this is constructed. (Novel/50,000 words)

Breaking the Ice (PG-13)   -   Shaw and Seven have actual conversations. Mainly in the cuts between scenes of the show. My first Shaw/Seven written while the show was going on. It hews to canon in its worst interpretation. (Novelette/14,000 words)

Broken Silence (R)   -   They haven't spoken since she brought him back to life. (Short Story/5,300 words)

Cowboys and Bureaucrats (R)   -   We didn't see how it began. We don't know what their relationship was like before the circus with Picard. What if things were a little different than they seemed? (Novella/20,000 words)

Captains and Commodores: A Series of Vignettes (R)   -   Read "Cowboys and Bureaucrats" first. This is a collection of vignettes following the end of that story.(Novelette/11,000 words)

Dissociative States (R)   -   He died in love with Seven. Seven was in love with him. But she brings back a Liam who's lost the last five years. How much of love is the interactions that lead up to it? How much is chemical? How much is fated? And what happens when a new person is in the mix? A person Seven loves and trusts at her back but won't be with. A person who a Shaw of five years ago might find very attractive. History repeats itself? (Novel/50,000 words)

Dream On (R)   -   They miss each other. They're light years apart. But not in their dreams. (Novelette/8,500 words)

Love Language (R)   -   Their love language needs work. Or maybe it doesn't. (Novel/64,000 words)

Nobody Knows What She Says When She Means Goodbye (PG-13)   -   What if, after giving Shaw the nanoprobes, Seven panicked over his reaction and really did resign before she saw her officer review? Raffi and Liam won't stop looking for her--will she come home? This is a bit experimental (even weird) in the construction with some drive-by poetry. I hope you enjoy it--or at least find it intriguing. (Short Story/7,500 words)

Payback (R)   -   They've made some enemies. They aren't what anyone would call friends. But they need to rely on each other if they want to get out of this alive.(Novelette/16,000 words)

Sixteen Steps (R)   -   Because we want them to and because I just wanted to take actual canon and work some sexy time in. (Short Story/5,000 words)

There Was No Pain (R)   -   Where was he? Did he want to come back? A wee bit experimental. I wee bit Christian, too (and I'm not, but Shaw wanted it so he gets it). (Short Story/5,300 words)

Too Long Too Far from Home(R)   -   Seven and Shaw and Jack have been stranded a long time. They've started to look at each other in new ways. The threesome nobody asked for but you might enjoy. (Short Story/5,400 words)

Two of Two (R)   -   He didn't die. And only a new show can prove me wrong on this. This started out as a simple one-off, which is why the first chapter is so freaking long LOL, then they wanted more. And it turned into this monster. (Novel/100,000 words)

Unrelenting (R)   -   The one where shit is just weird after she brings him back. And not everyone models Federation ideals (or maybe they do if you rewrite Federation to mean something drastically different). Please take the ride. It probably won't go where you think and you'll be happier by the end of the first chapter unlike other dark stuff I've done that takes a few chapters to make you feel better about things. Also, this is bonkers. (Novel/80,000 words)

We're What Now? (R)   -   AU where Picard Season 3 never happened, pure fluff, plopping myself down on the fake marriage bandwagon cuz it's just such a fun trope. And I needed something utterly silly to write. (Short Story/2,600 words)

"You Complete the Heart of Me" (R)   -   What if--when everyone else got transported to La Sirena to go time travel in Season 2--Seven was left behind on the alternate Earth? Where a certain Liam Shaw is. A Liam Shaw who has a very personal stake in Annika Hansen. So it just struck me as super interesting that the same Chopin Nocturne was played by Shaw during Season 3's Dinner of Disdain and was the music President Hansen of Season 2 used to get ready by. I get that classical music is in the public domain therefore free but the same exact stretch of the same exact nocturne for both of them in two different realities? There had to be a link.Also, this was really just an excuse to hang out with these guys with a minimal amount of plot and lots of gooey snarkiness. Hopefully it works.(Novelette/11,000 words)


Other Picard Fic

Closure (PG-13)   -   Laris speaks. I'm a Picard/Crusher shipper from way back but I'm appalled by this character not getting some kind of closure. So I'll give her some. (Short Story/1,400 words)

Life After (PG-13)   -   The pairing no one asked for (or possibly wanted/needed--or even had an existing tag). I apologize to my fellow J/Cers and S7ers. I just got this wild hair and needed to see if I could make Janeway/Shaw work, even a little. (Short Story/6,000 words)
