[After “Shadows and Symbols” I shipped Jake/Ezri hard. I still think that would have been a great way of emphasizing how much younger and inexperienced Ezri was than Jadzia, and it would have been an interesting wrinkle to Dax’s relationship with Ben Sisko. And it would have been better than just having Ezri hook up with Jadzia’s old flames.]
[I really loved Bashir/Ezri, but then when they got together they focused so much on Jadzia—Bashir’s feelings for her, and Ezri’s memories of Jadzia’s feelings for him—that now I’m afraid that they broke up as soon as they both realised that Dax wasn’t Jadzia anymore.]
mostly a gift for southerndrawlinmypants who deserves all the things: two disney aus and a bee backpack, plus a self indulgent western!alexander
Ezri and her new symboint-style cellphone case
[To be honest, I dislike Ezri’s character more than Kai Winn’s and Skrain Dukat’s put together.]
I feel like a person who dislikes a character like Ezri more than a character who has raped several women and helped oppress and entire planet probably should do some introspection about their character preferences.
Going in the Ezri tag can be really discouraging because there is shit like this confession and then there are also people who think she “treated Worf terribly from their first episode together,” like, WHO treated WHOM terribly??? What show are you watching???
(It really boils down to misogyny; being an “annoying woman” is a bigger turnoff to these fans than being a rapist or a violent, possessive ex-boyfriend-type.)

"Do you remember when I met Jadzia for the first time?" Ziyal asks, and smiles so sweetly and earnestly that Ezri has to smile back and nods, because she really does remember. Or Jadzia does. It’s hard to say.
Ziyal had never met anyone quite like Jadzia before, someone so sharp-tongued and bright-eyed, not in her childhood on an occupied planet, nor her life in slavery, so when Kira introduced them she’d been so fascinated.
Jadzia, Ezri thinks, would love what Ziyal is growing into. She’s strong and confident and a bit brash. Jadzia would be so proud.
aaaahhhhhhh hand cramp
;-; I have a lot of feelings about the idea of Ziyal surviving and meeting Ezri because what the hell do you say? “Sorry that my dad killed you?”
