we’ve been rewatching ds9 and let me say my love for Kira Nerys knows no bounds

Putting to one side that Quark is the only person Odo could ever romantically love

I want it on the record before tumblr goes to the big farm in the sky that Kira/Odo it is absolute HORSESHIT and that Lwaxana/Odo is the Good Good


First, because Kira is very clearly gay

Second, despite being canonically 5yrs old Odo is design to look and does act significantly older than Kira. Kira is maybe mid 30’s, Odo presents as being later 40’s or even 50+

And my issue is not that Kira would date an old man it’s that big shows go out of their way to give (yes give) the young female lead to a much older male lead out of Hollywood’s fascination with young girls (actresses) and old men (producers/agents)

Star Trek does a lot of good to break these molds but the forced heterosexuality in DS9 is particularly aggravating when you KNOW Odo had a healthy, age appropriate romantic arch that was played for laughs

Lwaxana Troi is an incredible woman and yes, she is overbearing and domineering and she doesn’t share Odo’s experiences during the Cardassian occupation but that’s why they’re so good for each other. She knows how to have fun, she forces Odo to have fun, to see the light in life and the wisdom of happiness. She teaches him to accept what he is even when that is constantly called into question because you can’t live well if you won’t accept yourself as you are.

And he, in return, shows her the importance of responsibility, saves her and her child from an abusive father, and helps her in turn accept who she is as she ages

And you want me to give a good god damn about him being shipped with a butch lesbian freedom fighter?

Fuck out of here

On this blog is Lwaxana and Odo (and Quark and Odo) or nothing at the fuck all






I think pretty much everyone hates how the writers did Ziyal’s interactions with Garak. I also hate it. He clearly should have assumed the role of godfather.

Because then we could have had at least a season and a half of him and Kira trying to simultaneously parent

 the same teenager with no resulting fatalities.

There could have been parallel scenes where they sit her down and are like “ok so the thing you need to understand about your father…”

Arguing over which over-arching method of self-preservation is the best.

Arguing about the appropriateness of accessories (I SPENT DAYS MAKING HER THAT DRESS THE EARRING IS RUINING IT)

The b-plot of an entire season could have been this sitcom

i love this post but in all honesty if garak ever complained about a bajoran earring ruining an outfit he would end up with kira’s hands rightfully around his throat 

it would happen exactly once and then get referenced at least three more times that season and twice the next

Garak and Kira teaching Ziyal the complete art of survival, combat, stealth and spying.
Remember that she grew up in a labor camp. Of course she already knows how to take care of herself. Garak and Kira would help her develop her skills.
I always felt that the naive girl they wrote Ziyal as didn’t at all mesh with how she was brought up. In reality, she and Kira would have lots more in common in that regard.

Another one of my fav Ds9 scenes.

I wrote about this in another post and I don’t think I can say it better now so I’ll just paste that in:

I love this scene because it says so much.

Firstly, about Kai Winn as a character. She isn’t a one dimensional villain. She isn’t blindly following her faith and that is her only motivation. She has struggled with it and have been punished for it. It would have been so much easier for her to chose another path. To renounce her faith or to simply stop teaching it. But she fought for it.

Secondly, about Bajor as a society. Why is their faith so important to them? Because so many people like Kai Winn had only their faith during the occupation. They held on to their faith. Surely partly because the Cardassians hated it. It was always a form of resistance in itself to keep believing, keep praying, keep gathering in secrecy.

Thirdly, it says a lot about Ds9 as a show. This is exactly why I love Ds9. They weren’t satisfied with Winn as a simple antagonist, there to show up now and then and make trouble for Sisko with some religious opposition. Instead they made her complex. They chose to let us understand her. They do this with a lot of their characters and they do it so well.

How the scene plays out comes as a surprise when viewing the episode for the first time. Of course they are going to exchange some banter and then go separate ways? Of course we the viewers will be left satisfied with knowing who the enemy and the heroes are? No, says Ds9.

Instead Winn here challenges Kira’s, and in turn the viewer’s, maybe quite simplistic narrative. Her disdain for Winn is understandable, but Winn reminds her and the viewers that reality is always more complicated.

Ds9 faces, possible icons.
