Miles *I like you more than I like my wife* O’Brien (good thing he and Keiko are just the centre of a massive polycule, isn’t it)
also @sigynpenniman can we talk about how Julian sits on that chair???
I would like to thank you profusely for bringing the way he is sitting to my attention because I have NEVER NOTICED BEFORE IN ALL THE TIMES I HAVE SEEN THIS SCENE
I have seen this 100 times and I have never actually clocked that the things his hands are resting on are his KNEES
WHY IS HE SITTING LIKE THAT
What’s he got his feet on? Is he like…perched on that chair? I’m at work but I want to lighten that screenshot just so see that perch better.
I promise a lightened image later!
it looks like… he somehow managed to fold up his ludicrously lengthy legs… and balance his feet on the edge of the chair… sir, that cannot be starfleet protocol. you’re lucky it’s your best friend who loves you sitting opposite
(but yesss please lighter images! for research!!!)
UPDATE! I’m so tired I’m absolutely delirious and that seemed like a good time to do this!
Turns out brightening up the image really hammered home the absolute absurdity of that pose! I love him! So much! Ahhhh! Theoretically he has his feet on the edge of the chair but it’s more like he’s doing ballet stretches! I’m crying! I need to go to sleep! I love he! So fucking much!
love the use of the word “theoretically” here. We can accept that theoretically Dr Julian Bashir should be able to fold himself up like an ikea desk, but practically he’s a dork with legs too long to be contained for long
@michaelburnhamfanclub Garak and Worf??
i am right
