Both of these fics are by the same author, take place post-Endgame and actually have some of the same secondary characters in both, but they are standalone stories.

Fandom Category: Star Trek Voyager
Pairing: Janeway/Chakotay, background Chakotay/Seven, Janeway/OFC
Fic Title: The Heart of the Moment
Author: Young_Khaleesi
Link: https://archiveofourown.org/works/528714
Rating/Warning(s): 14A, language and heartbreak, but no triggers
Genre: angst, romance
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: This is Khaleesi's take on the 'stuck-in-a-tubolift' trope that can single-handedly support this pairing. But I promise you've never read an interpretation like this. Taking place 10 months after Voyager gets home, it catches up with our starcrossed lovers who are now estranged and kind of hate each other. A series of happenstance turbolift meetings force them to deal with each other. Its heartbreaking, omg will your heart break for these two, Young_Khaleesi just keeps throwing the angst at you in such a believable and honest way. It ends up being a remarkable character study of these two people and how they are their own worst enemies. There is a happy ending, but the angst and tears to get you there is really the joy of this story.

Fic Title: One Single Step
Author: Young_Khaleesi

Rating/Warning(s): 14A, violence, language
Genre: action/adventure, angst, romance, political thriller
WIP?: no

Why This Must Be Read: I've had this very long story (over 72000 words) loaded on my phone and I read a few chapters in bed each night before I went to bed....but last night I stayed up way too late finishing this epic. Its AMAZING. Like the other story, this catches up with the Voyager crew 10 months after they get home and Janeway/Chakotay are estranged. This story is packed full of angst and romance as these two manage to get their crap together all while there is this quadrant-spanning political mystery tying the story together. While I was swept up in the romance, its the primary action plotline that really gets you. There's double-crosses and several swept-the-rug-out-from-under-you moments. Plus there's Janeway creating a whole heck of a mess with the Temporal Prime Directive (and we all love that right). The secondary characters are wonderfully created, she creates an entire believable world in this epic story.

Pairing: Kathryn Janeway/Chakotay
Fic Title: Arcadia
Author: Elem
Link: HERE
Rating/Warning(s): R (for swearing only)
Genre: Romance/Angst
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: A post-Endgame story. The return to Alpha Quadrant is not what the Voyager crew expected but time is a great healer. I love Elem's stories. And this is by far my favourite. The set-up with the whole crew and Janeway's background story fit perfectly into the angst/romance between Janeway and Chatokay. But what draws me in every time are the wonderful written J/C scenes.

Fandom Category: Star Trek Voyager
Pairing: Kathryn Janeway/Chakotay
Fic Title: The Only Way
Author: Elem

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: PWR (Porn with Romance)
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Chakotay is at the end of his tether and decides to set some new ground rules regarding his and Kathyrn's relationship. Uhm, Alpha Chak. Like woah. The way I would have loved to see Chakotay on screen more often, not his whimsy self of the last season(s).

Fic Title: A Good Man is Hard (to Program)
Author: monkee

Rating/Warning(s): NC-17
Genre: humor
WIP?: no
Why This Must Be Read: The lengths, so to speak, that a Starship Captain has to go to, just to have a good time... / A short piece, very worth reading because of the sheer humor and because... well, who sometimes wouldn't want to be able to make a few changes with the same easiness of Captain Janeway? :D

Rating/Warning(s): Explicit, blunt escription of a rape.

Why This Must Be Read: The tale of the first Vulcan-Human pair bonded 'normally'--at age seven. / A moving, insightful story, written with Macedon's usual stunning style.

Pairing: Kathryn Janeway/Chakotay; other canon pairings
Fic Title: Talking Stick/Circle
Author: Macedon & Peg Robinson
Rating/Warning(s): R? Violence
Genre: Drama
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read:

I was lured into posting my first rec ever for this challenge, because anyone who appreciates great writing should read the Talking Stick cycle.  Not a single story, but a sprawling, epic series that spins off from the first season (Kes is very much alive, and there's no Seven of Nine to be found).  I can't possibly do justice to this astonishing piece of storytelling, except to say that it's legendary, it's the finest writing I've ever seen in any fandom, and it changed the way I think about family, community, heroism, and heritage.  If you think you didn't like Voyager, or if you didn't like what it became in its later seasons (really, who did?), then you should read this, because this is all of that wonderful potential done right.

Pairing: Samantha Wildman/Joe Carey
Fic Title: Three Anniversaries
Author: spiletta 42
Link: http://www.fanfiction.net/s/1550904/1/
Rating/Warning(s): Teen; Canon character death, adultery
Genre: Drama, Romance
WIP?: No

Why This Must Be Read: Though Samantha and Joe were very rarely seen on screen, it's obvious that the author put a lot of thought into their characters. They're both very real and realized as individuals on the ship, and the narrative is just absolutely wonderful. Major canonical moments are hit upon, but they're not the main focus of the story; the evolving relationship between Sam and Joe is. Not everything is sunshine and roses, and the ending is very bittersweet, but it's very much in the spirit of the show. I'm very happy I stumbled across this story.

Pairing: Kathryn Janeway/Harry Kim, Kathryn Janeway/Chakotay, Tal Celes/Harry Kim
Fic Title: Audience With The Queen
Author: KJ

Rating/Warning(s): R, crack.
Genre: Fixit, friendship, romance.
WIP?: Complete.

Why This Must Be Read: *coughs* Right, so I figured that I should be really, really late and go ahead and post one of my guilty pleasures. After Voyager ended, I got really, really mad about how everything shook out and decided that (relationship-wise) the two people who got screwed over the hardest at the end of the series were Kathryn Janeway and Harry Kim, and sure, it was insane, but wouldn't it be awesome if they ran off into the sunset with each other and were crazy-happy and everyone else could just SUCK IT? This is not that story, but it's the closest anyone's ever come.
