I drew this (from this sick reference) because 1) I like Garak and 2) I like swords and clothes with big shapes. Also I like to think pre-tech Cardassians would have had elaborate traditions around duels, based heavily on outwitting your opponent rather than brute strength or speed. Aka debating, but with swords.

It’s the incredibly wiggly camera for me that makes me understand how serious a situation these characters are in
Avoid suspicions by reminding everyone that you are but a humble tailor.
Ok, but imagine a bodyswap episode, where Odo switches bodies with Garak. The possibilities. I think Odo would try to convince Sisko that he is himself, but he would be in Garak’s body, so it would be…difficult. So he would settle for just trying to manage people on the Promenade, but nobody would believe him that he is himself. Except for Quark, who would take full advantage of the situation, and just do illegal stuff in front of him, since he can’t do anything about it, and later he wouldn’t have any evidence. Meanwhile, I think Garak would either use his shapeshifting ability to go back to Cardassia, or he would just mess with Julian. And you might be asking yourself, wouldn’t they just check Odo’s brainwaves or something to help him prove he is himself? I think not, because Garak could just turn himself into the medical device they would use, and display his own brainwaves, which he would learn to do while Odo is trying to convince Sisko that he is himself. They could ask Odo something only he would know, but they can’t know for sure Garak doesn’t also have that information, because, you know… But these are just some of the things that could happen.
star trek deep space nine
crossover[start id: 3 gifs of intendant kira and kira nerys on deep space nine. they are sat across from eachother at the intendant’s desk on terok nor. 1: intendant kira, smiling, studying her counterpart says, “you are me, aren’t you?” 2: nerys, unimpressed, replies, “i’m kira nerys.” 3: the intendant still smiling says, “That makes two of us.” /end id]
the alamo sucks
I finally watched Little Achievements. I’d been putting it off because I wasn’t ready, just knowing it EXISTED was a bit overwhelming.
(not to be Fandom Old on main, but I’m still largely used to shippery being something kept secret and quiet to avoid drawing attention and having drama happen over it that might get a whole fan community and all their works erased from existence because some snob of an author hates fanfic or whatever, so uh yeah that’s one point of HOLY MOTHERFORKING SHIRTBALLS THAT REALLY HAPPENED)
Anyway @urania-sycorax hadn’t known it existed and then upon being informed of its existence insisted on having me watch it too so we could flail about it together and uh.
I WAS STILL NOT READY. MY HEART OMFG.
I mean. The actual actors doing an Old Married Garashir script? I die. Am ded.
AND ALSO going THAT EXPLICIT with Autistic!Julian???? both in-script and in the meta notes making it very very clear that that was actually the intention and everyone involved knew it??? MORE DED.
(I mean yeah, it’s pretty strongly implied in Official Canon but it’s left vague enough for plausible deniability, which is a bit frustrating yanno)
and of course the PURE TOOTH-ROTTING FLUFF I cannot. I can’t. Can. Not.
I’m currently watching some ds9 and I’m unpleasantly reminded that for some godforsaken reason quark is hot af
Someone tag spammed the Star Trek feeds on ao3 with the entire text of Frankenstein. If you wanna avoid that shit, put “-tiap420” (or any other author’s name you wanna avoid) in the Search Within Results bar and hit filter.
I’m finally watching DS9 from the beginning and theres no heterosexual explanation for Bashir and Garak’s first meeting. Poor twink is so flustered.
