This is beautiful. I love the way you explore the different facets of Dax and the difficulties as well as advantages of having a joined Trill as a lover. I really like the way you explore Kira's character too--her brittleness, her strong feelings, her own complexities. It's really interesting stuff. I love the ending too--Kira's gradual realisation that she has only Jadzia Dax and only now.
My kindness to myself for the evening is going through and finally replying to your lovely comments, and getting to enjoy each of them again. Thanks for this – you comments are especially enjoyable because they're not just praise, they're generous accounts of thoughtful reading! Fills my fangirl heart and my English-teacher one with joy in equal measures. <3
It's so lovely of you to reply to all my ridiculous comments! And your writing is so good : I have to use whatever skills I may have learnt as English student to do it justice, rather than only responding with an emotional reaction. I can't tell you how happy I was to find all your wonderful Kira/Dax stories--I've just recently fallen for DS9 and the pairing and it's so wonderful to find such beautiful and well-written fic about my favourite characters.
