I'm not much of a Kira/Dukat shipper, but I have enjoyed the slow-burning, slippery-slope nature of this story. I could never see Kira simply jumping into Dukat's arms and declaring her never-ending love, but set their love/hate chemistry in the topsy-turvy loonyland that was the Dominion Occupation and add in a Dukat plan within a plan within a plan leading to a trap...I look forward to reading the rest of this.

Hmm, I get the feeling someone doesn't like Shakaar...and I'm not talking about Dukat! :) It'll be interesting to see what Kira does with the First Minister's "request".

I love how you're slowly but surely altering the Kira-Dukat dynamic, so it isn't some abrupt, "they-fall-right-into-bed-and/or-love" story. Layers, I love 'em.

I love this chapter. I like how you add even more mystery and contradictions to Dukat by having him speak Bajoran with a native accent. Cardassians really have some delightful depth. I adore this:
'An hour?' Shakaar demanded suspiciously.
'If you think I'm going to let you stroll around the place freely for an hour – '
'Oh come on, it's not as if I'm going to run amok and kill everybody. Amazing as it may seem to you, I actually have better things to do than massacring civil servants.'
No matter what you think of his personality, no one can deny that Dukat never fails to deliver in a confrontation. I also like Kira's conflicted emotions about Dukat and Shakaar. If I was her I'd dump Shakaar, leave him to look after Bajor and the Dominion, run off to a remote planet with Dukat and never leave. I look forward to your next update. xx

I can't say enough how much I enjoy complex, plotting Dukat over the televised cardboard villain they gave us as the end of the series. I really wish things had gone this way instead.

I'm blown away by your talent. You write every character perfectly, I can actually imagine them saying it all. I love the banter between Kira and Dukat, it's actually really funny :)
I can't wait for the next chapter. xx

I love how deviously twisted your Dukat is without him turning into the baby-eating monster the show twisted him into the last season. Well done.

Loved the last line of this chapter. Good luck with school and I'll wait patiently for the rest of the story. You know, after your brain explodes and everything. :)

Looking forward to the next update as the tension mounts. Can't wait to see where this push-and-pull between Kira and Dukat goes.
| MizJoely chapter 1 . 5/9/2011
Loving it so far, Dukat as his usual devious self and Kira stuck between a rock and a hard place. Can't wait to read the rest! Only one quibble: some very British spelling distracting this American during her reading. Perhaps an American beta might be a usefull ally in the future. But that's just me, easily distracted. The story itself certainly holds my interest!

Very nice! After discovering that most Cardassia-centric fanfic is gone from the web (*sob*) finding yours was a lovely gift. I hope you'll continue; your idea is a truly fascinating one!

Ooooh I'm intrigued :P I like the way you wrote Ziyal in the 2nd chapter. Update?
