Thought I'd throw up a public entry with a couple of passages from a very long fic I'm working on in the Star Trek: Deep Space Nine universe, just because I'm very pleased with how they turned out.

Title: When the Farsei Blooms (two excerpts)
Pairing: Garak/Bashir
Rating/Warnings: R for mentions of sex and torture (not at the same time, thank goodness)
Word Count: ~1900 (the full version, at ~7500 words, is available on the Fan Fiction filter here on my journal)
Summary: Stranded on a remote Cardassian colony, Bashir and Garak must seek out a transmitter which is their only hope of rescue. In the process they enter a new stage in their relationship, one that is not meant to last.
Notes: (1) The term a'latli, as established elsewhere in the story, is a High Kardasi word which roughly translates into Terran as One who strikes sparks from me, as blade against blade, and whose gaze sheathes itself in my heart. (2) What I rather like about this fic is that it's told entirely from Bashir's point of view and, as in the original TV series, it's never really clear when Garak is lying or when he may be telling the truth. I'd advise you to keep that in mind while reading. :)

For those of you who have no idea who Julian Bashir and Elim Garak are, a short but classic scene from the DS9 episode "The Wire":
