I’m still (very, very slowly) watching Deep Space Nine, and I’m nearly at the end and oh my god DAMAR. I thought there was no way they could make me like him and then SUDDENLY. all his terribleness was character development?! Well played.
Also, I finally, finally buy into Kira/Odo. The fluffy romance did nothing for me but put them in a horrible situation together and push them to their limits and suddenly I’m all about this.
