I have recently supported Quark/Sarek but this was not received well in the group chat.

But consider: Sarek is withholding and dramatic with a great sense of style and he would treat Quark like he’s beneath him.

Quark would find this irresistible.

It was @idkipoststuff that birthed this idea into consciousness and we should all be thankful for all the mental images they provided us.

realtalk, tbh Garak literally makes more sense as a Jadzia-adjacent tertiary character

– both have had “past lives” that they discuss in humorous ways

– both have gone off on a trip and then murdered a dude because they were all fucked up on Blood (this is an important experience and they would be able to relate to one another in ways specific to being fucked up on Blood)

– game masters (dabo & kotra)

– excel at drinking

– kickass clothes & rad fashion sense

– sense of detachment based on having a very disaffected view on whether they live or die / find bad shit hilarious

– graduates of institutions founded on deceit and the belief that you have the right to determine someone else’s life trajectory based solely on nigh-arbitrary standards

– old bastards

I think the writers were just afraid if they had them onscreen at the same time they’d just be too cool and make the rest of the station look less cool

this isn’t to exclude bashir and garak though obvs, imho this is just one of my excuses for More Garak Episodes

Any talk of Garak & Jadzia always reminds me of this bit from the original script for Civil Defense:

You can still hear the “sudden appreciation” in the line that remained in the episode. Clearly at least one of the writers considered it, too. 

Fascinating!

Of course, thought process went:

1. Ahhh nice, the writers were thinking about it!

2. Your lunch calendar is full? Let me guess: once a week, “Lunch with Julian”, six days a week, “chance he might be free today also”.

I also accept the prospect that all of his friendships began as an opportunity to scam free meals

Star Trek (1966)

I’m glad we sorted that out, Tumblr

The adult algorithm strikes again.
