reflectedeve: Kira Nerys, surgically altered to look like a Cardassian, and not liking it one bit. (my faaace - something has gone horribly)

Um. Sooo. I seem to have fallen down a Garak/Bashir hole? I guess this is what I get for all the conversations with my roommate about how I don’t seem to have a taste for dark, complex, angsty stories these days. (SPN is the fandom of her heart, so naturally we differ a bit.) At least, not in fic. (Which, to be fair, I haven’t been reading a whole lot of for awhile in any case. I mostly look at a lot of fanart, and I listen to a lot of pro fiction audiobooks.)

I seriously have no idea where this sudden, intense fannish engagement is coming from. I’ve been contentedly making my way through DS9 for the better part of a year, finally, and while I love pretty much the whole cast (well, I have to admit, I still don’t care much for Worf, or O’Brien about two thirds of the time, but everyone else) and have a pile of pairings I enjoy thinking about … I don’t know. Maybe it’s the weather? Or the fact that I’m about halfway through season 6, and maybe the way that Garak and Bashir haven’t really interacted in awhile in canon has slowly been getting to me? Or it’s the stress I’ve been under lately? Although let’s be honest, that hasn’t exactly been anything new. IDEK.

But hey, yeah. Totally taking recs (thanks again, [personal profile] epershand) … for fic, and for active challenges? (Big Bangs and Reverse Bangs, I guess?) I mean, I should finish the show before I try and participate in anything, or read post-show fic (yeah, I’m saving “Letters from the Northern Continent”), but it’s kind of exciting to be feeling this kind of motivation to really get elbow-deep in a fandom again. (And while the dynamic between Garak and Bashir is particularly working for me right now, Kira is probably my favorite character, and there are a plethora of pairings and of course, all the team/found family feelings that I would be interested in exploring …!)

I also very much want all the Jadzia Dax/Lenara Kahn canon divergent AUs, naturally. (Both for the chemistry and the exploration of Trill culture/psychology.)

In other news, I finally emailed some staffing agencies and was immediately landed with a short-term temp assignment and encouraging prospects for more, so financial crisis more or less averted, at least for now. I mean, I’m being underpaid, but I’m being paid.

Also, if you're Boston-adjacent, you should come get your indie comics on in Porter Square this weekend!
