There was a post in the “garak” tag about wanting fics where the focus is on Garak being the desired/pursued/saved part of Garak/Bashir. So I put together a little list of such fics. It’s only what I could remember off the top of my head, so there might be more, but it’s a start. Hope they hit the spot!
First my own. Because Pimping, fuck yeah!
First Time. (Might not hit the mark precisely, but I personally think it’s one of the best role reversal fics for this pairing.)
Merry Christmas Julian. (Julian has a holo-Garak)
Red Satin Ribbons. (Julian sends Garak love poems)
Tiresias’s Children. (Garak is raped.)
The Garak/Bashir Mysteries. (Insanely long and complicated, but I totally think it would fit this request.) (Since there’s no real masterpost, I linked to a rec page for easy navigation. Scroll to the bottom of the page.)
Wired. (Julian’s POV of The Wire. With more slash.)
OMFG, I’m reading Fairy Tales in Deep Space and I am DYING FROM LAUGHTER!!
JB: Look, is the story called ‘Political Assassination in Fairyland’? No, it’s not. It’s called ‘Snow White.’ So please pipe down so I can get on and tell you what happens to Snow White.
EG: Oh, were they fairies?
EG: Excuse me, this is Political Assassination in Fairyland.
Here is this incredibly quick illustration and rough written chunk of Garak meeting Mira~ Takes place outside the ‘orphanage’ in some little courtyard where they let the kids (and doctors who should have been home a few hours ago) run around.
591 words. SUMMARY: An internal monologue at the end of a pleasant evening.
TAGS: Pre-slash, internal monologue, unresolved sexual tension, no dialogue.
Ordinary moments in the lives of Bashir and Garak.
(Most of this series is already posted here on tumblr with the exception of the first two.)
So I read Letters From The Northern Continent the other day *_*
also I have no idea how Cardassian furniture is supposed to look like but judging by their buildings and stations they seem to like… pointy edges? Cardassia’s obviously not the place to visit if you’re like me and have a tendency of bumping into corners aioejtaoeoaieja
613 words. SUMMARY: “The instant he’d looked up to see that roundish pleasant face with such penetrating blue eyes he’d felt the sleeping part of his sexual personality surge to life with a deafening roar.”
For Ladydrace. Hope you enjoy it! :)
OMG YES! PERFECT, PERFECT, PERFECT! THANK YOU!!! *flailing*
Excuse another Star trek post…But i have many feels for Bashir/Garak. That, and Kira/Odo, are my OTPs of DS9. So finding GOOD fanfics of the doctor and the cardassian is haaaard.
So for those of you in the same pickle as me, read this.
Woah, just like that, one of MY fics turn up, recced on my dash! *flails gleefully*
437 words. SUMMARY: A quiet moment shared in the dark of night.

Julian was exhausted. He’d just pulled a double shift, working in the infirmary and then working 12 hours to help Jadzia identify some new life form Sisko had discovered coming through the wormhole. Now more than 30 hours after having strode confidently from the quarters he now shared with Garak, he crawled pitifully back home.
He’d accidentally killed the creature from the wormhole. He didn’t know why, but that fact weighed heavily on his mind. He wasn’t even sure it was sentient, whatever it was. It could have been some sort of space seaweed. But it was dead now, and he was sure he’d killed it.

This little gem was inspired by an acting game that my friend and I made up, in which there is a deck of characters (in this case, DS9 characters) and a deck of scenario cards. This fanfic was inspired by drawing Dukat and Garak as the character cards with “A must perform surgery on B while B is conscious.”
We couldn’t manage to act it out but it made for a great fic prompt!
Takes place offscreen during “By Inferno’s Light” (Season 5)
Has anyone written fic of Julian’s internal monologue as he watched over Garak during The Wire?
I think that would be a thing relevant to my interests. Does it exist?
This might hit the mark. I can certainly recommend it! http://prelocandkanar.livejournal.com/19008.html
