Tony Bennett - Close Enough for Love (Audio)
… So I’ve seen y’all recently, with your lovely Qcard song suggestions, all of which are very valid and I adore you for them, but if you’ll allow to wade in, mes captaines, I’ll raise you: space jazz, on their anniversary, with a twist chucked in because it’s me. This was a date idea at one point for the side blog (come say hi to some galactic idiots over at @ask-q-and-picard, if you’re up for such things ^_^), but this narrative was far too sprawling, so here we are! Welcome to around a thousand words of softness, a sprinkling of angst, a side order of introspection, and a god who can’t dance to save his own immortal essence.
(This isn’t a songfic as such guys, but you’ll get the most from it if you have a listen to the above whilst reading, thematically as well as lyrically. Let Tony Bennett melt your soul with his deeply appropriate words and delightful voice. <3)
* Also, as promised, ma’am - @q-card, have fun with this cosmic romance!
“Dammit, Jean-Luc, I don’t
-” His footsteps are automatically corrected, the movement vexingly smooth, and
he barely represses a snarl at his lover’s grin.
“You’re omniscient, my dear - how can you be so awful at waltzing?” He
queries, voice a teasing lilt.
