Q and Suzy-Q

This page includes stories that focus on Q's relationship with Suzy-Q. Q himself is not necessarily a character in all of these fics.

Mistress of War: Who is Q's mate? What does she do when she's not with Q (which, one guesses, is much of the time?) And what was her role in the war?

Power Corrupts: Technically this is more about Kes than Q, but I've included it here because it features Q vs Suzy-Q, where Q is the prosecutor and Suzy-Q is the defense attorney. It's the trial of the aeon -- the Q Continuum vs. Kes, for Kes' destruction of the Borg. Written for the Remix Redux, a remix/sequel to Cait N's drabble Absolute Power.

"Judgement Day"

Included here because Suzy-Q is a major character and her relationship with Q is the primary driver of her motivation, even though Q himself is dead in most of this series.

I had been doing a lot of mental work with "The Q and the Grey" and the war.  The thing that keeps hitting me, every time I think about it, is that if they'd just had the brains to split that out into two episodes, a goofy episode about Q hitting on Janeway and a serious and dark episode about war in the Continuum, it could have been so good... but what they actually did do was more or less completely schizophrenic. It didn't really succeed at being either funny (oh, immortal people are getting shot and killed, and suns are blowing up! hahahaha, stop, you're killin' me!) or profound.

While any number of war stories are sooner or later going to come out of this dark obsession with rewriting "The Q and the Grey" so it fails to suck, this particular arc is coming out... darker than most. For one thing, Q's dead in most of the stories in it. For another, I have royally screwed with every human and every part human and every sentient construct of humans in the plot. This is an AU where Q's side of the war... lost.

Covers TOS, TNG, DS9 and VOY. Maybe ENT will have a character or two if I can figure out why they'd be alive.
