On the Importance of Family by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, gen. "The latest in a string of tedious assassination attempts temporarily forces Enabran Tain to interact with his housekeeper's child. What he observes is altogether unexpected." // 1.7K. Where "housekeeper" equals "fanatical agent," and "housekeeper's child" might be his own child if he weren't utterly incapable of connecting with another person.

Meditations on Two Bastards in a Corridor by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, gen. "A little riff of that one scene in 'Way of the Warrior' where Garak and Dukat are stuck together fighting off Klingons in a hallway." // 2.7K, Garak's thoughts on fashion, laundry, the insufferable Gul Dukat, and society in general. Also dead Klingons and minor gore.

A Secret Between Friends by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. Post S05E6. "He wanted to tell him, but didn't."
Was there really something to be forgiven for? His personality, with all attendant deficiencies, was unaltered. It was just that he had deleted a long-running subroutine called 'Hide the Secret' and now felt like a burn victim: over-sensitive, missing several protective layers of skin, and repulsed by mirrors.
//3K. Julian, after everyone's returned from the Jem'Haddar captivity, resumes his angst fest. (A sign of overdosing on the bmouse brand of Cardassian cultural delicacy: you think, Wow, a hand squeeze seems far too forward; but then they've been though a lot and no one could see it, so perhaps that ameliorates the audacity somewhat...) This could be a nice prequel to her post-canon fics, actually.

The Theoretical Tail by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. "Garak wears a full tail-sleeve. All the time." And Julian is, by nature, a curious creature. // 1.5K. Tail!AU. More gentle humor.

Aid by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. "Garak and Bashir find themselves in a delicate situation." // 1.6K. Sex pollen. Julian is under the influence, following the established protocol. Garak's just along for the ride... Unexpectedly sweet (and smut-free) for this kind of fic.

Post-Canon Cardassia by bmouse
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir. Unconnected fics, but I've connected them! And arranged them in a (tentative) reading order. Set in postwar Cardassia, with multiple POVs, covering the reconstruction period of Garak's rising influence and Julian's hopeful immigration and eventual clearance as a medical professional -- and a gradual courtship of diffident roommates. They're all low-drama, smut-free explorations a distinctive reptilian culture where stealth, indirectness, and subtlety are prized. (And I keep thinking about that image of Cardassians at the beach, lol.)

* Hail, Old Comrade, https://archiveofourown.org/works/988035 "Kira visits Garak on Cardassia." // <1K, gen. Garak winning over the masses, one delinquent at a time...

* The Harvest Season, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1580114 "On Cardassia even the flowers have secrets." // <1K. Garak POV, Bashir POV. Garak surviving post-war, Julian finding him.

* Not Quite Boston, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2525825 "Julian Bashir's post-war platonic 'Boston marriage' plan has a bit of a flaw." // 1K. Now Julian's moved in with his BFF! However.

* A Long-Term Plot, https://archiveofourown.org/works/859567 "How long do people live? In your family?" Julian asks. // <1K. An actual relationship conversation...

* Equivalent Exchange, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1008440 "So apparently to become a Cardassian citizen, one must have a molar extracted. Julian's not looking forward to it..." // 1.3K. No dental horror per se. A pretty, gentle fic about Julian earning his way into the medical establishment (with a tiny, quiet aside highlighting the diff. btwn ordinary kid Julian and his augmented afters).

* The Inconsequential Matter of the Feet, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1041696 "He had never once seen Garak wear open-toed shoes while on the station, which in hindsight was clearly deliberate." // 1.4K, Julian's meditations on foot claws, society, and reconstruction.

* Draco Dormiens Nunquam Titillandus, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1104063 // <1K. Sunning Cardassians make excellent lounges, Julian finds.

* Another Line of Work Presents Itself, https://archiveofourown.org/works/1987704 "While wandering around a sun-warmed small town in central Cardassia Julian Bashir finds exactly what he was looking for. And a refreshing drink." // 3K. Julian POV. Spies gonna spy, official and nonofficial both. Part of this one is an outside POV, and it's hilarious.

* Little White Lies, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2128455 //9K. A series of laid-back ficlets, many set in the post-canon universe. These are lovely, and several are outside POV.

* Nine Years On, https://archiveofourown.org/works/2396348 "Elim Garak never imagined a future where he'd have to shave his husband for summer. Luckily, that's the one he's got. A glimpse into a little ritual between an old married couple." // 1.6K of co-grooming, Garak POV.
