@obstinatecondolement requested kira/cretak for @trek-rarepair-swap round 13! this was incredibly fun and i’m glad i got a chance to draw one of my favorite rarepairs i’ve never gotten around to otherwise I hope you like it!
[Cretak/Ross bugs me because 1) I hate how a “working relationship” between a male and a female character is always interpreted sexually. and 2) Ross betrayed Cretak and sold her out in favor of an operative who is almost guaranteed to start a war between the Empire and the Federation, that he will then be able to “supply information” for. Meanwhile Cretak was willing to help Julian keep the alliance going in hopes that in would become permanent. Ross had absolute 0 regard for Cretak’s life. ]

[TBH I loved the DS9 episodes with the Romulans, given how little we got of them in TOS and TNG. I especially loved Senator Cretak and was sad to see what Section 31 did to her. But I am especially disappointed we didnt see more of them. You only seemed to see one or two Romulans at a time during meetings, and you never saw them communicate with the Klingons and the Federation during battles. IDK it just seemed like table scraps. I hope the new series will have more Romulans.]

Nerys is struggling to make sense of her conflicting feelings for Senator Cretak.
Normally she’d talk to Jadzia about it, but Jadzia isn’t here any more.
Are you the author that wrote that one (i.e. all of) Kira/Cretak fic?!
Hi there! I wrote a Kira/Cretak (ish) ficlet once, but you might be thinking of cosmic_llin, who wrote a sweet little story about flirting and jumja sticks. To my knowledge that is the full extent of Kira/Cretak fic in the world, so if you’re thinking of something else – or if you, my darling readers, know of something else – BY ALL MEANS LET ME KNOW.
And then we can talk about how much the world needs a post-canon epic in which they take over the galaxy together. Sigh.
[I’m disappointed that Senator Cretak didn’t become a major character on the final season of Deep Space Nine. She had such good chemistry with Kira, and I would love to see the Romulan culture explored to the same level of detail as those of the Klingons or Cardassians.]
