Garak knows better than to think that this will ever work.

Garak knew better than to think that this would ever work. Cardassia and the Federation had never made the best of bedfellows, and that was true both literally and figuratively. Even if they completely ignored the quagmire of political differences that kept their two races firmly apart, there was still a galaxy worth of reasons why they shouldn’t be together. Gender itself would have been an issue in less modern times, or at least that was true for the humans. Their race had brushed past that social stigmata well over a century past, and while the Cardassians did still have some taboo on the subject, Garak considered himself old enough and wise enough to see past that. Besides, given who they were, the fact that they were both male was the least of the rejections against their relationship. The only reason it’s lasted this long is because they’re both too stubborn to actually listen to all the reasons why they shouldn’t be together.

Race had been the largest issue in Garak’s mind. Cardassians were used to hard lives – from the constant state of war to the very nature of their skin, they were hard creatures. Perhaps that was why he found himself drawn almost magnetically to the soft-skinned creatures surrounding him. They would have been a rare treasure on his world in the old days, something strange and exotic, like a fragile flower so easily crushed beneath his palm. If soft-skin was all that he needed, anyone would do in theory but there was more to their current situation than just an attraction to exotic appearance. And yes, he did admit that any human who engaged in the carnal with a Cardassian had to be considered somewhat aberrant by his or her fellows. On Cardassia, captures of war had long accustomed his people to exotic ‘pets’ and an almost accepted exploration of foreign bodies.

  1. Beautiful. I love the relaxed and languid feel of the story – it is somehow enhanced by the discussion of their differences and the war. You really do believe that even though the odds are against them, the relationship will endure. Lovely piece.
