Title: On His Toes
Author: viciouswishes
For: kangeiko
Fandom: Star Trek: DS9
Pairing: Odo and Quark
Setting: Post-series
Rating: G
Words: 174
Request: Odo & Quark, apologies & regret.
Summary: Odo's at the end of his life.

At the end of his life, Odo's not thinking about his choices or the choices of his people. He's not even thinking about what it means to be at the end of his life. How long do Changlings live? Not long enough apparently.

Instead of thinking about Kira or about Sisko and the others he left, Odo thinks about Quark.

If Odo were the type of being to believe he had a soul, he might do something Jadzia used to call soul-searching and admit that he missed Quark. But instead, he lumps those feelings in with missing everyone he knew while he was human. Well, almost everyone.

Quark just happened to be the only solid who challenged Odo. Kept him on his toes all those years that Odo could've been bored arresting petty thieves and careless arms dealers. It was something like cat and mouse, even though Quark always managed to wiggle his way out of any charges Odo placed against him.

Yes, Odo thinks he just might miss that kind of surprise.

This is lovely! Also: the only DS9 fic I've ever read. Now I have a yen to watch again.

Yeah, the writing made me want to break out my DVDs and then some. (Damn them being so expensive.)

Glad you liked it.

Oh, that is great, and feels so right regarding the Odo-Quark relationship!

This is fantastic, especially because I can really see Odo thinking this about Quark towards the end of his life. It's a great finish to that relationship they had on the show.
