crossfire
you might have noticed that I seem to like character driven episodes. while I was editing the photos the…third row in and fourth photo down - that still of odo made me shiver, the expression is about five emotions all into one. sorry that this turned into a kira/shakaar lovefest but the gamut of feeling we see from odo was well worth the episode choice. and as you can tell my cap choice sort of got out of control for this one.
for cardassians: don’t worry, garak is my bff there will be tons more of him!

I am ridiculously happy to be spamming for you. literally all it took for me to have a big, goofy grin on my face was to pop in the dvd. and that was just at the first scene.
I love this series, although when I googled ‘deep space nine cookies’ to give to you guys there were some pretty bizarre hits. will these suffice?

(one of the) five reasons i adore elim garak

&five; honesty
you may think it strange that honesty would be a reason that I love garak given his penchant for telling, and encouraging bashir to tell, lies. however I believe him to be one of the most forthcoming people on the station. if you know what to look for you can look past the words. bashir figured this out in the end and became a much stronger person himself for it. and much like benjamin was angry that vreenak was killed, he was angrier with himself that garak was right and had been right all along. garak’s going to tell you the truth, it just may not be the truth you want to hear.

I must tell you, I’m disappointed at hearing you mouth the usual platitudes of peace and friendship regarding an implacable foe like the romulans. but, I live in hope that one day, you’ll come to see this universe for what it truly is, rather than what you’d wish it to be.”"than I shall endeavor to become more cynical with each passing day. look gift horses squarely in the mouth, and find clouds in every silver lining.""only if you mean it."

&three; acts

"that’s why you came to me, isn’t it, captain? because you knew I could do those things that you weren’t capable of doing? well, it worked. and you’ll get what you want: a war between the romulans and the dominion. and if your conscience is bothering you, you should soothe it with the knowledge that you may have just saved the entire alpha quadrant. and all it cost was the life of one romulan senator, one criminal, and the self-respect of one starfleet officer. I don’t know about you, but I’d call that a bargain." - in the pale moonlight

(one of the) five reasons i adore elim garak

I completed this entry as a challenge elsewhere but thought it would be more than appropriate to post here. because I’ve been…slow with posting, let’s try this automated post bit. one reason for the next five days, eh?

&one; words
one of the things I love most about garak is his use of words. his character would be nothing but relegated to the background, unknown, if the writers hadn’t given andrew robinson such fantastic prompts. while cardassians in general are a bit wordy, garak’s word choice both requires no thought and tremendous thought. he rarely hesitates before/when he speaks, but when he does it’s as if he’d been ruminating on that exact point for minutes. exiled on ds9, words are the only tool garak has left and there is nary a person on the station that can step toe to toe with him.

the wire, bashir & garak
"of all the stories you told me, which ones were true and which ones weren’t?"
"my dear doctor, they’re all true."
"even the lies?"
especially the lies.”


distant voices, bashir & garak
"to think, after all this time, all our lunches together you still don’t trust me. there’s hope for you yet, doctor."

empok nor, o’brien & bashir
"what’s the matter?"
"well, it’s just that lately I’ve noticed that everyone seems to trust me. it’s quite unnerving, I’m still trying to get used to it. next thing i know people are going to be inviting me to their homes for dinner."
"well, if it makes you feel better, I promise I will never have you over.”
"I appreciate that, chief."

a little shameless comment (i know, i know!)

so, while thinking of a post to put up since I’ve been lax due to life interrupting i went ahead to google: “why do i love ds9”.

and I’m not going to lie, I’m extremely flattered (and a little happy) that my last rom-related post came up pretty high in the google image search.

YES I LOVE DEEP SPACE NINE GOOGLE, I DO, THANK YOU FOR REAFFIRMING IT. 

that said, let’s have a little fun. reasons why people love ds9 via google images:

no1&: they love o’brien and keiko. but they probably don’t like that molly is running away to cavelady status in the background as they get their loving on.

 

no2&: weyoun’s fierce side-eye. this gqmf doesn’t even need his whole face to tell you what’s what. i applaud the watchers of ds9 for loving this.

 

no3&: they love aliens and their crazy wardrobes. textures, skintight bodysuits, shoulder pads, pointy eyebrows and ears aplenty. neutral colors are in at the alpha quadrant fashion week.

 

no4&: ferengi and rodeo ferengi action figures! honestly this is a given. with all of the ferengi hits that came back for this search it seems to follow that quark, rom, nog and moogie did a great job with schmoozing on behalf of ferenginar.

 

DRUMROLL LADIES GENTLEMEN AND ALIEN FOLK. THE LAST REASON PEOPLE LOVE DS9:

no5&: dax! people love dax. according to my wholly accurate scientific reasoning (which means she was last on the page) people really like dax. how could you not? she’s spotty, funny, and is not afraid to take it outside if need be. girl’s fierce and lovable, no way around it.

 

that’s all, folks!
