hey so for kiradax month/week, today’s telling the crew so…
Kira is surprised that some people already know and Dax is surprised that not everyone does. Because like 90% of the crew or at least the (honorary) senior staff have seen them on dates and just… not realized they were dates.
Dax probably tells Sisko first, and he’s not at all surprised but he didn’t already know for sure. He’s just really happy for them. He’s like good for you old man hope you’re happy. And he tells Jake (with Kira and Dax’s permission) and here’s where it gets funny. Jake is like, “Damn, Mrs. O’Brien won the bet. I thought they’d wait another week to tell you.”
So Jake shows up to school the next day and gives Keiko a bunch of latinum and all of the students are probably like yay! They finally told Sisko! Nog’s like “I told you to bet a week earlier.” O’Brien (as in Miles) also sees this and is like what??
So Keiko’s like “oh it’s just the bet that Jake and I had going about when Kira and Dax would start telling people they’re dating.” And poor oblivious O’Brien did NOT see that coming and he’s like “they’re dating??” And Keiko’s like “yeah?? If I’m right they’ve been dating for like months now?? You see them in Ops every day Miles how did you not notice how often they flirt? Kira finds an excuse to lean over Dax’s station like 50 times a day.” And O’Brien’s probably like “I just thought they were friends.”
Keiko teases him about this for around seven years.
Also on that day Sisko probably calls Kira into his office and has a similar conversation with her about I hope you’re happy congratulations and Kira probably almost cried because she’s adorable and Sisko is the Emissary.
Anyways so O’Brien is at Quark’s or something the next day and Bashir is there waiting for lunch with Dax because she wanted to tell him something so Garak and him are having dinner instead. (There’s also a betting pool about them dating, one that Dax eventually wins.) So O’Brien’s chilling with Bashir until Dax gets there and he just absentmindedly is like “I can’t believe they’ve been dating this whole time.” And Julian, also oblivious, is like, “who???” And O’Brien, assuming Julian already knows, says “Kira and Dax.”
So Dax gets there and Julian is like, “YOU and KIRA are DATING and you didn’t tell me??”
And she’s like, “that’s what I wanted to talk to you about but honestly I kind of assumed you knew?” he did not. he also just wants Dax to be happy.
Kira tells Odo and Odo knew. He doesn’t super understand why humanoids are like this but he’s observant. He congratulates her, and they probably like hug it out because Odo is her Brodo.
Julian (with permission) tells Garak who is literally so unfazed by this. He’s just like “…yes… I know… did you not?”
Quark didn’t actually know but he’s really upset that he didn’t know when he finds out because half of the dates they go on are at his bar. They use the holodecks all the time. Had he known, he could have started a betting pool like Keiko and Jake’s and made a profit. Alas, hating women and not respecting them can hurt profit once in awhile. Who would have guessed?
Am I missing anyone? There’s Worf in later stuff but I’m barely there and I do not know him.
Kasidy! Kasidy knew. Kasidy obviously knew. Kasidy met Kira and Dax individually but immediately after knowing both of them knew that they were gay for each other. Jake’s been keeping her in the loop. Sisko tells her and she’s like “I know. I’ve always known. Your son also had a bet with me. He lost that one too. I know.”
Anyways, all these stories make it back to Kira and Dax and at the exact same time that Kira says, “How did all of you guys know?” Dax says, “How did all of you guys not know?” And then they all have a good laugh about that.
