Sooooooo.....I had a dream. Or rather, A VISION. From the PROPHETS of Bajor. 'You must make a vid', they said. 'You must vid...THE GARAK.'

And I said, 'The Garak? What is this?'

And they showed me. And lo, it was good.

...ok, what actually happened was this:


And then I did nothing. And then, almost a year later, this happened:


And still I did nothing. And then, finally, over a year since I was first blessed with a Vision from the Prophets, I commenced my life's work:


And so, dear friends, I humbly submit to you this vid, towards which the Prophets guided me, almost two years ago. It just premiered at Vidukon. I hope it brings you joy.

ETA: wrote this in a hurry before the Vidukon premieres show, and so I FORGOT, like the terrible person I am, to thank the amazing [personal profile] bironic and [personal profile] cosmic_llin for their wonderful and supremely patient beta comments, and also [personal profile] such_heights, [personal profile] raven and Flatmate L for their enthusiasm for Garak being punched in the face.

Lyrics
They seek him here, they seek him there,
His clothes are loud, but never square.
It will make or break him so he's got to buy the best,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

And when he does his little rounds,
'Round the boutiques of London Town,
Eagerly pursuing all the latest fads and trends,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He thinks he is a flower to be looked at,
And when he pulls his frilly nylon panties right up tight,
He feels a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
There's one thing that he loves and that is flattery.
One week he's in polka-dots, the next week he is in stripes.
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

They seek him here, they seek him there,
In Regent Street and Leicester Square.
Everywhere the Carnabetian army marches on,
Each one an dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
His world is built 'round discotheques and parties.
This pleasure-seeking individual always looks his best
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Oh yes he is (oh yes he is), oh yes he is (oh yes he is).
He flits from shop to shop just like a butterfly.
In matters of the cloth he is as fickle as can be,
'Cause he's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.
He's a dedicated follower of fashion.

Marvelous! A+ use of song; I never realized just how suspiciously insistent that chorus was. *Garak jazz hands*

Good thing that Cardassian cheekbones are sturdy what with all that abuse! And it never occurred to me until now that Odo could make any tailor look good given that he can adapt to the clothes instead of the other way around.

Fun look back!

This is a thing of beauty and a joy forever. The devilish joy of scheming while looking *smashing.*

This was great fun to see - I'm honestly surprised with hindsight at just how often Garak gets punched in the face. Whilst the vid clearly indicates that it's customer dissatisfaction with his hemming and turn-ups, I think there might be something fishy going on...
