Summary: Riker and Troi meet as children. As they grow up, they have chance encounters with each other. Is this the universes way of bringing them together? Or is it just coincidence? AU.
I came up with this idea a while back, but just now decided to write something like this. I’ve always wondered what it would’ve been like if Riker and Troi had met as children and had met unexpectedly throughout their lives.
This is a different kind of AU. I’ve got Riker surrounded by family, instead of just him and his dad. He’s got his mother, his aunt, grandmother, grandfather, uncle and a little sister added to the mix. Yes this starts as a family fic, but I assure you, it will turn into a romance fic later on.
For anyone interested here are the first two chapters for you to sink your teeth into:
Chapter 1: Entwined Souls
Chapter 2: Best Friends
*I hope this is satisfactory. I’m doing my best.* 🙂
As a bonus blog post for today, I’m letting you guys in on some upcoming writing projects. This means more romance/drama fanfics galore!
I’ve got two new Riker/Troi romance fanfics on the drawing boards. The first is called:
Summary: Riker and Troi meet as children. As they grow up, they have chance encounters with each other. Is this the universes way of bringing them together? Or is it just coincidence?
*This is a slightly different AU fanfic from what I normally write.*
The second is called:
Summary: *This is a very different sort of AU fanfic.* Instead of Riker pursuing a command path aboard various starships, he works as a doctor at Starfleet Medical. He meets Troi when she is admitted for a broken arm. Riker always follows one rule: Never fall for a patient, even if its a beautiful woman. But he can’t help but feel a strange connection between the two of them.
*So, what do you guys think of these premises?*
So, with this post comes the close of my Riker/Troi romance fanfic Cards of Fate. On a scale of 1-10 how do I think I did? An honest answer? I give it a solid 8. I think I managed to balance out the romance, drama, angst, and the eventual family attributes of this story.
So for those of you who have read the entire fanfic, how would you rate it? On a scale of 1-10? I look forward to seeing what numbers you guys come up with.
As a bonus, here is the banner for it:
*Made using screencaps from trekcore.*
*Now if I can just figure out how to upload my book cover for this fanfic without having it look like a broken picture.*
Here is the link to the last chapter for those of you interested:
Chapter 13: Sleepless Night’s
So far, my Riker/Troi romance fanfic Cards of Fate is a labor of love. As previously stated in my 1st post about this fanfic, I came up with the concept and the idea for it while staring out at The Zocalo Square in Mexico City.
As a lot of you read so far, Riker and Troi have gone through a number of different situations. They’ve gone from the confused, but happy couple who don’t quite understand their strong attraction and bond with each other, lying in each other’s arms, to having a quiet dinner with one another. Then to Riker caring for Troi when she comes down with Clodonian Flu, never leaving her side.
Then to more recently having to deal with the loss of a child they didn’t even know about. I feel that with the ups and downs that these two go through in this fanfic is necessary to tell this particular story.
I hope to lure more of you in with this next chapter:
Chapter 4: Comfort and Hope
*I’m having fun writing this romance fic, and I hope to come up with more soon.*
So I give you all chapter’s 2 and 3 for my Riker/Troi Romance fanfic Cards of Fate:
Chapter 2: A Match made in Heaven? Most Definitely.
Chapter 3: Two Halves Lost
*Get some tissues handy for this chapter. It’s meant to bring on the water works.*
I hope you guys will continue to enjoy, I’m doing my best with the romance and the drama.
Hola everyone! I am back from Mexico City and am diligently working on my 1st Riker/Troi Romance fanfic. *Gasp* *This should be interesting.*
I came up with the idea for Cards of Fate while taking this picture of The Zocalo Square in Mexico from The Terrace restaurant on the top floor of the Best Western:
It’s always been a romantic setting for a lot of different events. So naturally I thought of Riker and Troi.
So without further ado, I would like to jump right in and give you guys the summary: My version of the scene right before Ensign Ro interrupted Riker and Troi in Season 5 Episode 14 Conundrum. What if she hadn’t interrupted?
Here is the link: Cards of Fate
I hope you guys will enjoy my 1st attempt at writing Romance. This used to be a serious no-no issue with me.
