pouring just a hint - susiecarter - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
Julian doesn't think about it much these days. Why should he, when it's been so long?

But when he does, if he does, well—he considers it part and parcel of Garak, that's all. Disconcerting at first, a little invasive. Awfully close to a line but not quite crossing it, and leaving Julian with absolutely no idea what he's meant to do in response. Garak in microcosm, summarized in a single unexpected gesture.

(Or: Julian has always thought Garak just had a weird little habit. Until another Cardassian does the same thing to him, and seems to imbue the gesture with a meaning Julian really had not anticipated.)

Plus One - potentiality_26 - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
“How are you, Garak?” Julian asked when he sat down. Complicated though things had been between them ever since Elina’s engagement, he was still happy to see his friend whenever he did. In truth, Garak had been cool with him since before the engagement- he had been cool with him since he came to Cardassia- but it wasn’t until after the engagement that Julian finally realized the indefinable something that had been missing from their friendship since they both left Deep Space Nine was that Garak was no longer flirting with him.

Julian works in a hospital on Cardassia after the war and learns some new things.

the gift we cannot destroy - Chapter 1 - susiecarter - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
Julian has no soulmark. He knows what that must mean, and he's learned to accept it. Meeting Garak, getting to know him, is almost enough to make him think—but it's not possible. Garak must have a soulmate, and there's simply no way it could be Julian. Right?

(Or: five times Julian thought he was alone, plus the time he realized he'd been wrong all along.)

Bashir Program Golf - Eve_Louise - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
He knew there would be a day when the regret wasn't worth it, but right now it was all he had to keep him sane and well functioning on some days. He called them "Bashir Program Golf" followed by a different number for each version. It didn't talk much. He didn't need it to. He had the real Garak for that.

“Garak,” Julian said sternly. “Chut’s just arrived and you’re already quarreling?”

“I have to do something to assert my authority,” Garak said, walking in and putting a hand on Julian’s shoulder. “The number of subjects under my command in this house has been dwindling.”

Day of the Winter-Vole - bmouse - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
"The universe apparently wanted Tora Ziyal to live. Elim Garak initially found this somewhat encouraging." As a temporal anomaly mysteriously gives him a string of second chances, can Garak save his young friend from the clutches of entropy? And at what cost?

The Theoretical Tail - bmouse - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
The first, and most paramount rule of the game was that he didn't ask about Garak's tail.

Cardassians had them. Some Cardassians at least, of the stiff-and-armored kind you saw trailing Dukat or various visiting dignitaries around the station. There was apparently a whole pauldron-like addendum to the regular cuirass uniform that fit over the tail and looked like it spelled trouble for enemy kneecaps.

He knew from some of the more ‘traditional’ (read: lurid and overtly-violent) novels that an accredited duel technique involved knocking someone down with your tail and then stabbing them through the throat. Upper-class status was a good tail-keeping indicator, those were found sheathed in colorful short to three-quarter fabric sleeves that inevitably complimented the pattern and colors of the formal suits. Higher-ranking military officers though seemed to view having kept one's original tail as something of a faux-pas, the unfavorable indicator of a desk-jockey and not one willing to risk so much as a non-essential regrowable limb for the State, though there seemed to be exceptions there as well.

He'd mentioned as much over lunch and received, preening, his due reward of two fond catlike blinks.

Bury Me til I Confess - brinnanza - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
He’s just tipsy enough that it seems like a good idea to be standing outside of Garak’s quarters in the middle of the night, leaning on the buzzer and seriously considering using his medical override. (It would be tremendously unethical, obviously, and would probably get him booted from Starfleet besides, but considering where he is and when, it’s safe to say that his judgment isn’t quite sound.)

The Economics of Star Trek — Medium
Screw the dodgy world of heterodox economics. Let’s go full-on fantastical and look at sci-fi. There IS actually a model out there that deals fairly realistically with a post scarcity economy. Not only that, it actually takes into account the difficulties of migrating from a capitalist society to a post scarcity society incrementally. It’s not just a theory in a vaccum.
