A Very Merry Christmas

Chapter Text

Character A and B, enemies, are chosen to prepare the company Christmas party
-Set early in season one-


“Ah Captain, just the person I was looking for!”
“Neelix, I’m really busy right now. I’m just here to get my coffee. Where… where is everyone?”

“Neelix! Are you just going to stand there, or are you going to help me?” a voice called from afar.

Janeway turned to see the aftermath of Christmas decorations crashing to the ground and her first officer covered in tinsel.

“Nice look there Commander.”
“Ah... Captain, sorry, I didn’t see you there.”
“Clearly,” she laughed.

“Well, I’ll leave you two to it. I promised Kes I’d help her in the airponics bay. I look forward to seeing what you two come up with!”


“How did you get dragged into this?”

Chakotay pulled at his left ear.
“He asked me to bring the decorations from the cargo bay here. And now I guess I’m stuck with setting up for the party. You?”

“I only came to get coffee.”

“Typical Neelix.”

“Well, Commander, you don’t strike me as someone with good decoration skills, and Christmas is my favourite holiday, so, I guess you're stuck with my help!”

“Sounds like a plan!”

Slowly approaching him, she whispered with a smirk, “Oh and commander.”
“Yes, Captain?”
Reaching up, she removed the tinsel from his hair. “Let’s start with decorating the mess hall and not you, hm?”
