Author's Notes: I got an adorable mental image in my head and just had to share it with everyone. Enjoy the cotton candy. ♥

Tauriel sighs, but she is smiling. So it has happened again. )

Author's Notes: My first (finished) [community profile] castle_perrault fic! I read most of a sad thread between an AU version of Sans and Papyrus and became very sad, and wrote this to cheer myself up. :D;; Notes on the Sindarin that Sans-Serif and Tauriel speak at the end.

Summary: Of course Cassandra isn't planning on writing stories herself. That would be ridiculous.
Author's Notes: Written for [personal profile] hickumu, who single-handedly met my first two fundraising goals on Patreon! As a perk, she got to request a drabble, and so here it is: something with Varric and Cassandra.

For anyone who'd be interested in contributing, the next milestone involving me writing fic nets everyone a 250-word fic of their choice. So, you know.

Summary: Why Kira had invited the newly joined Ezri Dax to lunch so soon after Jadzia's death is beyond her.
Author's Notes: Here it is--my entry for Star Trek Friendshipfest 2015! I was assigned persiflet, who likes explorations of cultural differences. I tried to oblige, but this thing kind of wanted to go in its own direction. Whoops.

'Instead, she very much regrets having invited Ezri Dax to lunch in the replimat, the way she and Jadzia always . . . used to.' )

Title: 30-Day Cheesy Tropes Challenge - 17. Noble/Peasant AU
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Genre: Pre-slash
Rating & Warnings: G (classism, sexism)
Words: This part 1584, ?? overall
Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: There is a new resident of the hamlet of Bajor--a Cardassian, they say. In spite of being warned against it, the Honourable Julian Subatoi intends to investigate these curious circumstances.
Author's Notes: I'll be honest with all of you: this is another trope that's not a favourite of mine, because, not to put too fine of a point on it, I am an old fart. Though I set this a fair bit farther forward in pseudo-history than was probably intended by the trope, the classism is still pretty intense in this and it's topped off with a sprinkling of sexism, so, well, be warned.

That said, I still had some fun with language and wordplay in this. Anybody who can tell me why Julian's home is called what it is gets a cookie (and no, it isn't named after Khan).

'He's a tailor.' Her brows drew together. 'From Cardassia.' )

Summary: Arthur decides to make a necessary adjustment in time for Carolyn and Herc's wedding.
Author's Notes: Because, like just about everyone else in the fandom, my heart broke when I found out Arthur's full name. The idea for this came very shortly thereafter.

Rating & Warnings: G
Words: 4622 this part; 8707 overall.
Disclaimer: I don't own the above media.
Summary: To repair the damage done by its interference with its colonists in the Demilitarised Zone, the Cardassian government has proposed a marriage-enjoinment between one of its citizens and one of the Federation's to symbolise the renewed relations between the two governments. Julian had gladly agreed to marry Garak, Central Command's "volunteer," but now he's learning all over again that nothing to do with Cardassians in general and Garak in particular is as simple as it appears on the surface. This chapter: The wedding-enjoinment ceremony.
Author's Notes: Holy shit, y'all. I had not been expecting this level of response. I'm very glad to see that this has been well received, and I can only hope the concluding chapter is a satisfying one.

Anyone who's curious about the song Garak sings in this, click here once you've finished the chapter.

Thanks for reading!

Whoever had come up with the tradition of not seeing your partner before the wedding, Julian decided, had been a sadist. )

Author's Notes: This is one of the fics I wrote for the DS9 Card Exchange this year! chiefmilesobrien gave me permission to post what I sent her, so here it is! The picture at the end is the front of the card I made. If I'd had more time, I would have put more detail into it, but yeah.

Words: This part 232, ?? overall
Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: Julian knows that someone will rescue them from this supply closet soon. Garak knows that someone will rescue them from this supply closet soon. It's just Garak's claustrophobia that hasn't got the message.
Author's Notes: Another short one, but honestly, with one half of this couple excruciatingly claustrophobic, it would have taken some serious gymnastics to make this one any longer. Whoops.

Before we get going, I want to thank everyone who's commented to my fics over the past few months. My brain weather has been...less than ideal lately, so I haven't been able to respond to comments, but I hope you all know how much I treasure every one. When things are going a bit better inside my head, I hope to give all of you the thoughtful responses you deserve. That just may not be for a while. But until then--thank you. <3

Summary: Herc thanks Carolyn needs to learn to relax. Carolyn disagrees.
Author's Notes: So this one came about by accident. I was looking to write a bit of scene-setting dialogue before another fic (which I have yet to get down on paper) when it, er, turned into something important enough to merit being its own piece.

Thank you very much to Mars once again for a delightful beta! I very much encourage checking out her fics if you're into awesome writing. ♥

Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: Ever since transferring to this particular building of Deep Space Co., Julian has had an unusual problem: he's getting along too well with one coworker in particular. Now he and Elim are facing the (hopefully metaphorical) firing squad.
Author's Notes: Er...hi. :D;; I didn't mean to go on hiatus, but it's amazing what moving 1800 km, spending two weeks in another country, and apartment hunting will do to your free time. I don't think I'm going to be right up to my usual schedule for a while yet, but I do hope to post more often from now on.

Another contributing factor to the space between updates would be that this was yet another trope that I needed to rewrite. I just wasn't happy with how it had turned out and the decisions I had made about the AU, so there was a fair bit of reworking going on. It's still not my favourite, but I like it a lot more than I did when I first started editing! :D;

He'd never thought, before meeting Elim, that getting along well with someone could be a problem. )

Summary: The truest pleasure in Tekeny Ghemor's life is the regular correspondence he shares with his daughter, Kira Nerys.
Author's Notes: Ghemor is one of my absolute favourite minor characters in any Star Trek series, and I simply adore his relationship with Kira. But I couldn't believe that, when he returned in "Ties of Blood and Water," that they'd had no contact whatsoever in two years! So, rather than them spying on each other for news, I decided to write this.

'Hello, Tekeny,' she greets him. He still can't convince her to call him 'Father.' Maybe someday. )

Summary: The way Julian and Garak tease each other has changed over the years.
Author's Notes: As always, I enjoy challenging expectations for prompts. :D

Early in their friendship, Garak often amused himself by seeing how outlandish he could make his falsehoods and still have Julian swallow them. )

Summary: Asbel and Richard have confessed their feelings to each other and are now boyfriends. The only problem is, Asbel has no idea what being a boyfriend actually consists of.
Author's Notes: I wrote this quite a while ago, and I was hoping to get it posted in time for Richass Week on tumblr, but obviously that didn't happen. Whoops.

This follows immediately after To See His Smile, but it isn't necessary to have read it to understand what's going on in this.

But how was he supposed to be Richard's boyfriend? )

Summary: Julian thinks things are looking rather grim when he and Garak are captured by the Romulans. As it turns out, they aren't.
Author's Notes: This trope was made for these two and I was very amused when I got to it. (I also tried to keep this one short in reaction to the previous chapter. It worked for today's fic, then stopped working after that for the most part.)

'Now what? Without my combadge, we can't—Garak, what are you doing?' )

Summary: O'Brien wonders why only the Klingons get to sing while going forth into battle. Sisko offers a suggestion as to what Federation members could sing themselves.
Author's Notes: In general, Klingons and I don't mix too well. However, one thing I do adore is the importance of song in Klingon life. (This has nothing whatsoever to do with me being a music teacher.)

This also came from the never-not-hilarious tendency for history to change the context of media--and I'm not saying anything else, because it'll give the joke away.

Summary: Species differences between Humans and Cardassians are never more evident during a Cardassian winter.
Author's Notes: My entry for DS9 Tumblzine's Drabble Free-For-All! Species differences are my catnip, and considering I react to the cold pretty much like a Cardassian, I had no shortage of inspiration to draw on....

'. . . And with temperatures as low as fifty-six tUrlan in Kardasior, this winter is officially the coldest in nearly forty years.' )

Genre: Pre-slash
Rating & Warnings: G
Words: This part 2415, ?? overall
Disclaimer: I don't own Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.
Summary: After the business with the Maquis, Cardassia's Central Command suggests a grand gesture to demonstrate the renewed commitment to peace between the governments of the Federation and the Union. They also know exactly who will be making that gesture.
Author's Notes: So from about this point on, things started getting away from me. :D;; My fics started getting longer and longer, and a few of them spawned their own AUs for me to follow up on later.

This would be one of them. Normally, "arranged marriage" is a trope I'm rather tired of--before learning how to find good romance novels as a teenager, I read anything I could get my hands on and that rather burned me out. But this, however, is another of my very favourite pieces in the entire series. I've even written a follow-up, with one more planned (although when I'll get to it is anyone's guess). So, uh, there you go.

'I can't see many people lining up to marry a stranger!' )
