Red

Summary: Seven contemplates her new existence.

Characters: Seven

Codes: Janeway/Seven (implied)

Disclaimer: Characters are Paramount's. No infringement intended.

Notes: In The Gift, Seven tells Janeway her favourite colour is red, to match the captain's hair. I wouldn't be surprised if their complex and tempestuous relationship meant that red invoked as many negative emotions in Seven as it did positive.

Rated K

“Her favourite colour was red.”

The colour of strawberries, and the ribbons my mother braided into my hair, of love and happiness. Things I once had.

I know better now. Red is the colour of rage and pain. It’s the colour of bleeding.

Things I have now.
