Star Trek: DS9 Notes - S7, Vol. 7

I didnโ€™t even love Deep Space Nine at the start. That may be one of my favorite things about this now, here at the end. I got attached gradually, more and more, a love that built over time until Iโ€™d grown so fond of it, so close, that at times it would almost seem we were completing each otherโ€™s frickin sentences.

Oh my show, my sweet space show, so strong and sure in its storytelling. It has been a steady hug when I needed it most, during times when the world and my own days were both filled with distress and despair. The people on this station experienced great traumas too, but it was boundlessly comforting to watch them navigate each tricky pass with such care and wisdom and heart. Their hope gave me hope, too.

I actually really like watching shows that have already concluded. I like the feeling of having seen the whole thing, and now having this complete world to play in. A show thatโ€™s no longer on the air is like a novel โ€” you can look at it as one thing, hold it in your hands and see what the shapes of all the narratives truly were. Itโ€™s once Iโ€™ve finished a series that the most imaginative parts of my fan-mind finally let loose, spilling light into unexplored corners, drawing plans for how to shore up weak spots, bring a few pieces a bit tighter together, add a haunted attic, etc.

So this is the sort of space I was just tipping over into when Deep Space Nine gave me an ending. A capital letter Ending, achingly realistic. The series ended because the charactersโ€™ time together ended. The course of peopleโ€™s lives change, they take new opportunities, they move away โ€” and so ends the run of months, years if youโ€™re lucky, when you were all together.

The finale is sad, oh it is so sad, and god I love it, I do. I love it for being so sad, and for being so natural, so recognizable, that now this is just my ending. No matter what else my thoughts will go back to fill in, all roads lead to the sea. To goodbye.

Which is probably what has landed me in just a very a tender sort story hangover with this one, walking around sheltering this warm, full, broken heart.ย 

So I do hope you sweethearts will stick around as I feel Iโ€™m going to be in quite the state for a while!!

Coco - [passing Fox] On your left [runs ahead]

Fox- [stops, signing angrily] Come on !

Coco -  [flips around, running backwards] [shrugs] [turns around and spots Velvet]

Velvet - [walks slowly towards Coco, carrying a basketball] Hey Coco ! I’m back from the gym =D

Coco - [spots dem abs] [stops in her tracks, goes completely rigid, blushes and crushes her water bottle flat, dousing herself in its contents]

Velvet -  Coco ! [drops the basketball and runs over to Coco, worry in her eyes]  Are you all right ?

Coco - Y…yeah [gulps] I’m alright

Velvet - What happened ? I’ve never seen you react that way before

Fox- [walks up to Coco and Velvet, signing] We just had a really long run. She needs a shower

Velvet - Oh….

Coco - Yup ! That’s it [waves hands around nervously] Nothing else going on here

Velvet - OK  ^^ I’ll see you back at the dorm [merrily goes on her way]

Coco-  [collapses to her knees when Velvet leaves her sight] [face completely red]

Fox-  [smiles] [signs] You ok

Coco - [breathless]  I didn’t know she had abs

Fox- [signs] So what if she has abs ?

Coco - Velvet has a 6 pack…….Velvet’s shredded 

Fox-  [pats Coco on the head sympathetically]




[Coco Adel stands in the shower, cold water cascading on her back as she tries to banish the gay thoughts from her mind, in an effort to regain her composure]

Velvet - [standing outside door]  Coco, are you OK ? All the hot water is gone by…..

Coco - I’m fine !

Velvet - [standing outside door]  You want me to come in there ?

[Coco faints]

I don’t know if you remember me @sketchhungry , but I asked if I could do something on one of your comics a while back.


Okay, I swear I remember someone in iRaincloud’s Picarto chat the other day saying they liked pie more than cake, and I thought it was Deagle. So I made both because… Well, I can! And my memory’s faulty. >w>;;
Edit: Fixed for just the cake pic. >w>
Edit2: Bah, I’m flippity-floppy. xD Put it back the way it was. lol

I’ve been wanting an excuse to draw this adorable pegasus, and no better excuse than a birthday, amirite? :3 (I hope I got dem spots/freckles right.)

Happy birthday, askdeserteagle! :D
