Stormtroopers do it in uniform - nekosmuse
Relationships inside the First Order demand subtlety: after all, fraternization is strictly forbidden, the consequences... unpleasant. Life on D'Qar is different, subtlety leaving too much room for misinterpretation. All things considered, cultural misunderstandings were bound to occur.

Aka the one where Poe is too busy pining to realize he and Finn have been dating for weeks.

Learning to Speak - tinsnip
Julian Bashir has been on Cardassia for six months. He thinks he's adapted pretty well. But when it's time to learn the language, he realizes he's nowhere near as clever as he thought.

Set post-canon, about a year and a half after the series ends. Light stuff, with occasional dips into darker territory.

Mint Car - tinsnip
Post-canon Cardassia vignettes, inspired by The Cure's "Mint Car."
Very light, very fluffy, very self-indulgent.
Hey, the world may be half-destroyed, but Cardassia rebuilds, Cardassia survives - and in the meantime, infatuation is a power unto itself. Even survivors fall in love, as Elim Garak is finding out. (Julian Bashir is pleased to assist.)

Time and Time Again - ChampagneSly
In the here and now, wanting to feel a part of his new family, Sealand is infatuated with Sweden's history and begs for stories from the Nordics, all while trying to match-make his Papa and Finland because that's what sons do best.

A story about past and present, love and forgiveness, and family.

Learning the Language - Allemande
Julian Bashir joins the post-war effort on Cardassia Prime because it seems like the most obvious thing to do: No planet is worse off after the war, he's a doctor, and they don't have enough of those. He's learning the language, because that's what you do when you're living somewhere for an indefinite amount of time. But he soon realizes that language isn't just about vocabulary and grammar, and learns a few things about his own past along the way.

The Affairs of Dwarves - sam_ptarmigan
Dori certainly would not have set off on a quest with twelve hobs if he hadn't thought his bearing years were far behind him. His body, however, has other ideas, and he soon finds himself with one last chance to indulge in everything he's spent a lifetime putting off for the sake of his family.

Or, the one in which Bilbo learns that you ought not to meddle in the (love) affairs of dwarves, for they are subtle and involve group sex.

Your Love Is My Drug - tinsnip
Julian's research project in speculative reproductive xenobiology is turning out to be a little more complicated than he'd hoped...
Silly and fun and very light. Highlights: second-season Bashir; flirtatious, fascinated Garak; Cardassian manners; lack of sleep; too much coffee; when when when can I see him again??
