Livejournal! I have missed you!!!

I need to share more DS9 thoughts with you. :D

Season 4 remains good. I even loved Bashir as James Bond going "Honey," though mainly because Garak did all the eye-rolling for me.

Gender politics remain terrible, and I don't know whether I'm frustrated or amused that Kira and Samantha Carter are treated about the same in their relationships (powerful men in love with them, yay gender essentialism despite what else might be important about this character).

There's some great Kira/Sisko friendship stuff going on, though, and Dax is her own character, and Odo is awesome. As is Garak. And Dukat. Even Sisko's interesting now, and Bashir (on his own, despite the sexism) is growing on me. The character interactions are all interesting and work. Absolutely loving the overarching plot, though I can see where all the B5 rivalry came from.

I am amused that it took a literal growth of beard for this show to suddenly become awesome.

ETA: Spoilers re: Garak's relationships and OH GOD EW )

Dear DS9,

I am quite enjoying this same-sex relationship/marriage commentary episode. It's fun. And, thus far, actually good. And I love that the taboo isn't the same-sex aspect but, instead, the "Trills that knew one another" aspect.

I'd appreciate it a lot more, though, if your 'verse had same-sex relationships in the first place. Cop-outs are annoying. Even if you were written over a decade ago.

Grumbling and--WAIT, WHY DOES KIRA HAVE PURPLE HAIR IN THIS SCENE, IS IT THE LIGHTING OR IS IT ACTUALLY HER HAIR, YES I HAVE THE ATTENTION SPAN OF A RABBIT

Huh.

...I'm on the first episode of s4 of Deep Space Nine, and it's actually good.

Huh.

I need a DS9 icon. I need a Paid account for purposes of several icons from several fandoms.

Garak and Bashir give each other chocolates. They give each other chocolates.

...Okay, [livejournal.com profile] wemblee, you're right. They're not just fucking. They're dating.

This is my canon, and I'm sticking to it.

More DS9

(...Yeah, there'll be a lot of these entries until I finish my rewatch.)

I have a new litmus test for determining whether an episode is good. Yes, if Garak is in it, but there's a 50/50 chance of incredible suckage otherwise. Generally amusing Swamp Thing-type suckage (but nowhere near that bad), though there's a good deal of horrible offensiveness too.

...Like this episode. Which makes me sad, because the last episode was awesome.

It is getting better circa s3. The Dominion + Odo growing as a character + Garak & Dukat showing up more = pretty awesome.

I'm also writing Julian/Garak. It's fun.

ETA: ...The Star Trek version of history is like a video game. I'm waiting for the zombie apocalypse.

Garak/Julian is my new ship. For forever.

Must make self write fic. Must make self write fic.
