i offhandedly mentioned this movie one day

It seems very likely to me that Garak and Julian would be the type to just sort of accidentally drift into a relationship without realizing it. Overtly flirting without realizing, they start giving each other gifts every time one of them goes on a mission, can’t make it to lunch today so how bout dinner at my place instead? Everyone else knows before they do sort of deal. Then one day someone offhandedly mentions “Julian’s boyfriend” and the convo moves on before he can reply and he’s like okay??? wtf???? Then that night him and Garak cuddling on the couch watching a movie as per usual and something just clicks and he’s like oh. OH.

i think about post-litchfield nicky/morello a lot like lorna taking nicky to morello family dinners which are so embarrassing to lorna to the point where she just spends the entire time shoveling food in her mouth and hopes that nicky doesn’t notice how loud her family is or how nervous she is but nicky just thinks lorna’s nervous eating is so fucking adorable and kinda just smiles and doesn’t say anything because no one could get a word in over the morello clan but also nicky and lorna living together and watching west side story almost every night and nicky just rolls her eyes because they’ve seen this movie so many times but hey it makes her girl happy and lorna totally ignores nicky playing with her hair and kissing her neck because she’s too busy singing along to all the lyrics which nicky thinks is really cute even when she tries to reach the high notes and practically makes nicky’s ears bleed and then the like one time they don’t shower together lorna walks in on nicky singing “tonight” and lorna just giggles because nicky always act like she hasn’t seen said movie 8 billion times whenever lorna references it but also most importantly i think about lorna and nicky first seeing each other in regular clothes like lorna is shocked at nicky wearing a skirt and nicky just thinks every fucking thing about lorna’s little brooklyn-boston girl attire is so sexy and adorable and lorna just raves whenever someone calls them a cute couple and nicky gets great pleasure out of informing said people that they met in prison and then one day nicky offhandedly mentions how great it is for gay marriage to be legal because now they can get married and lorna is like ha ha that’s cute nichols and turns out nicky actually meant it marriage is bullshit to her but she knows how much it means to lorna so she just gives up and lets her have this plus it’s not like she’s every gonna leave lorna or anything so why not and nicky just kinda sits back and lets lorna go crazy with wedding planning because it’s her thing and this is all for her and lorna is finally getting what she wants and know this time it’s actually real like i spent two entire hours in a car thinking about these two outside of prison
