Title: Mutability
Fandom: Star Trek: Deep Space Nine
Pairing: Kira/Odo
Rating: All ages
Warnings: None needed
Word count: 150
Summary: What changes and what doesn't.
Notes: Written for [profile] astrogirl2, who asked for Odo and Kira.

"Doesn't it unnerve you," Odo asks, "that I'm . . . unstable? That I don't stay the same?"

"And I do?" It's late, and Kira is too sleepy for tact. "What's Kira Nerys? A refugee, a terrorist, a freedom fighter, a prisoner of war, a liaison to Starfleet?" Antos's lover, she thinks. Edon's. Yours. "I've been a Cardassian politician's daughter and the mother of a Terran baby. In another universe I'm a psychopath with a sparkly headband." She kisses him. "You're mistaking shape for substance."

He smiles then, and is quiet.

He'll ask again, she knows, on another night, in another form of words, as he has asked before. And she'll answer. Only the Prophets know if they'll come to the end of this question, or how it may shift and change before they do.

"Odo," she says. Whatever it means in Cardassian, it's one unchanging truth. "You're always Odo."

I'm now taking a new request. First commenter on DW or LJ can name a fandom (see here on DW or here on LJ for a list of fandoms I can write), a character or pairing, and a brief prompt.

I really like your grasp on Kyra there.

Oh, I liked this! It's always nice to see new fic for an old and beloved ship, and this one captured them nicely.

(Also, I giggled at Kira's description of her counterpart as a 'psychopath with a sparkly headband.')
