Learning the Language by Allemande
DS9, Bashir/Garak, series 39K.
* Learning the Language, https://archiveofourown.org/works/753560 "Bashir works as a Doctor on Cardassia, learns Kardasi and learns something about his past along the way." // 13K. Another likable take on post-canon Cardassia, rebuilding efforts and courting. (No smut, here or in sequels.)

* "Facing the Past," https://archiveofourown.org/works/754718 "Bashir accompanies the Cardassian delegation to DS9, meets a few old friends as well as a threat to all of them." // 9.5K. Where "old friends" includes Kira and Ezri, and there's various political doings.

* "Stop the Press," https://archiveofourown.org/works/985157 "Bashir and Garak travel to Earth, where their relationship is discovered and revealed by the press." // 16K. Where celebrity gossip journos fixate on the new Cardassian Interim Ambassador's salacious secret, doing an end-run on Julian's tentative plans to gradually introduce his parents to both Garak and their relationship. (And the public at large also have An Opinion on the matter...) I've read this a couple of times; don't know why I've never saved it.

Your Love Is My Drug by tinsnip
Set of two fics, Garak/Bashir. // 21.5K total.

* "When You Go Away," https://archiveofourown.org/works/655134 "How dare Garak go off-station and miss lunch with Julian? Really, he's quite put out about it. Unusually so... Wait, what is this?" // 4.5K. Prequelish, a bit of introductory pining as Julian more or less trips into a realization he's crushing hardcore. Again.

* "Your Love Is My Drug," https://archiveofourown.org/works/724286 "Julian's research project in speculative reproductive xenobiology is turning out to be a little more complicated than he'd hoped." Julian attempts to court Garak ~subtly using Cardassian novels as a guide. // 17K. This is an Early Julian fic, so he's high-octane ~overly in all aspects, which is YMMV. With that in mind, it's a fun version of a popular theme -- Julian trying to figure out and enact a traditional courtship -- that mainly rolls along on pining and UST. Doesn't feel finished (we don't get the benefit of all that xeno research...), but evidently it is.

The Gift We Cannot Destroy by susiecarter
DS9, Garak/Bashir. "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?" // 5.7K. So. Two things I dislike: soulbonds and "5 things" fics. Yet this one has such good interactions btwn the two that I periodically wind up rereading it anyway. Ah, whatever.

Talking to Strangers (No Stranger Than You) by susiecarter
Deep Space 9, Bashir/Garak. "'Arguing,' Miles says. 'It's like flirting for them, or something.' 'What?' Julian says. (Post-3.15: Julian learns something he didn't know about Cardassians, and then has to decide what to do about it.)" // 3K. Always a great fic subject, and this one's a nifty variation on it, with both obliquely setting themselves up as failboats. (No smut.)

Parts Unknown: Bajor by fresne
Anthony Bourdain: Parts Unknown RPF/Deep Space 9, gen. "In the season eight premiere, Tony pays a visit to Deep Space Nine and Bajor." // 7.5K, AU. Haven't seen any Parts Unknown, but this is easy enough to follow. Dwells mainly on the occupation and recovery efforts in a way the canon never did, with the overall downbeat vibe leavened by rather goofy commercial breaks. It's pretty interesting (and filled with typos). Featured canon characters: Sisko, Jake, Jadzia.

Proof by AlphaCygni
Deep Space Nine, Garak/Bashir, Garak/Parmak. "Enabran Tain has retired, and Garak has been second-in-command of the Obsidian Order for over three years. His next assignment is the interrogation of Cardassia’s newest detainee, a Federation doctor charged with espionage." // 81K, fork AU. Yeah, all right. It's well written, a cool premise, and is entirely set on Cardassia. Bashir is a house-bound captive throughout, forced to work on a disease cure (i.e., "arrest" here = kidnapping). It's intricate and culturally dense with really intense relationships, loads of Garak backstory, some vaguely Stockholm-y stuff.

But. I don't read the licensed mass-market novels (and don't plan to), and I felt uneasy the whole time about not being to discern what was this writer's own take on canon versus what got lifted whole-cloth from some book or other. Fuck it, spoilers: Bait-and-switch fic. The *TV series* pairing you chug through 80+K for is not the author's end game. It's some licensed novel rando (per Google). When I spotted this fic sitting in an old tab from last month, I got ticked off all over again. (╯°□°)╯︵ ┻━┻

How Much of the Map (those undiscovered places) by susiecarter
Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. Julian wakes up married, in someone else's bed. He isn't sure how that happened, but his headache says far too much kanar was likely involved. // ~7K. New DS9 fic omg. Set post-Zimmerman reveal, mostly a fic about Julian freaking out about his bad life choices. I did wonder who'd officiate a marriage with that much booze involved, but once the fic got there -- oh. Yeah, of course. No smut.

Between the Noise by sparklyslug
DS9, Julian/Garak. Their daughter wants to move back in, with her husband in tow ... because reasons. Julian is delighted at any opportunity to see Garak rendered speechless. // 2.4K. Postcanon, on Cardassia, situation wherein Julian and Garak took in war orphans. Thus kidfic.

The 50/50 Consensus by TheoMiller
DS9, Garak/Bashir, gen. "It's a problem of genetic differences and environmental factors. Always too cold, always too bright, always surrounded by people who despise him: Elim Garak is miserable." // 3.4K. Julian decides Garak's quarters should be warmer. This effort escalates beyond Julian's purview, and Garak succumbs to paranoia. A fic of fluffiness and zero smut. I rather liked the notion that Bajorans used light as an offensive tool for the resistance.

Off to the Races by Eve_Louise
DS9, Julian/Garak. "When DS9 intercepts a communication from the Orion Syndicate inviting a Cardassian Gul to an outlying moon, they ask their resident Cardassian to go undercover. With a Starfleet partner, of course, and who better than the intrepid Doctor Bashir?" // 20K. Julian's pleased to get a chance to be a real life spy -- but it's as a Bond Girl, the arm-candy from Risa for Garak, who's less than enthusiastic about the whole affair. So the leap to OMG ILU is whiplash sudden, but that aside it's pretty fun and twisty. (Tho I have to say, that the author passed on the opportunity for a cool TNG xover was disappointing.)

Strange and Distant Shores by gryvon
DS9, Garak/Bashir. "In 2398, reporter Felix Marian interviews Chairman Garak and Ambassador Bashir about the formation of the Cardassian Democratic Union and ends up learning more about Cardassia than he intended." // 6.8K. Outside POV interspersed with Julian POV anecdotes. Not an exciting version of "Julian runs off to Cardassia to be a doctor," but I'll read any version of that. Some smut.

The Smallest Things - tinsnip - Star Trek: Deep Space Nine [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: Garak writes to Bashir. Bashir writes to Garak. The letters, and the spaces in between. // Epistolary WiP, probably unfinished, but the ending is very satisfying; the fic could very well end like this because it's so logical from narrative POV that I couldn't imagine a better conclusion.

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.

Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. "'You want me to read to you?' Julian repeated, somewhat taken aback." Julian's offer to entertain Garak while he's recovering from the surgery turns into Julian's learning Cardassian while reading it aloud. // 5.6K. Very fun. The best kind of sneaky vs. naive fic.

Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. On Cardassia, Garak's manning a work crew (and managing impressions) while Julian's working in a clinic in the southern provinces when a dust storm hits then Julian goes incommunicado. // 6.8K. Domestic fic, complete with getting to know their shipping-crate neighbors, mildly angsty, v. good.

Plus One by potentiality_26
Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. "Julian works in a hospital on Cardassia after the war and learns some new things." Specifically: After Julian's had a chance to observe firsthand a courting coworker's successes - and gotten to ask some nosy questions - he realizes he's seen it all before elsewhere. // 6K. Straight-up courting fic, loads of two-sided pining.

Letters from the Northern Continent by thehoyden
Deep Space Nine, Bashir/Garak. "It just figured that the first time Julian Bashir set foot on Cardassia after the war, it would be halfway around the world from Elim Garak." // 1.7K. The one with Bashir setting up healer shop on the other continent and back and forth via vid-mail. Which is lovely, and I've read before, and must have bookmarked somewhere else... I need a lot of "sets up shop on Cardassia" fics, and I can't find the one I was remembering.
