Haven - 1.11
From a chat dated 12/27/11:
Charlie: so that episode that is in your TNG zine, Haven, i was gonna do that one, but then i saw it’s the first Luxwana ep, and i didn’t know if you, like, wanted it
Charlie: since you and luxwana have a thing together
Anna: you can do it if you want
but spell her name right
THAT’S ALL I’M SAYING
Charlie: i mean
when i write the thing
i’ll look up the
Charlie: you haven’t done this one, right?
it’s Deanna’s arranged marriage
Anna: I am looking at the wiki page for it
and I would remember that rick springfield hair
you’re already doing it
those portraits look like they were done by a Chinese man on fisherman’s wharf
Anna: “This is the one and only time that Homn speaks.”
ok yes I want to do it
I mean we’re both already doing it
So, as you can see, Charlie relinquished this sort of terrible first-season episode - intensely campy, with one scene that is one of the most awful examples of clunky exposition I’ve ever seen on TNG or anywhere, but all redeemed by the fashions of Lwaxana Troi, Daughter of the Fifth House, Holder of the Sacred Chalice of Rixx, Heir to the Holy Rings of Betazed. I fucking love that bitch.
In any event, we have to start where plenty of things start: in Riker’s quarters.
Fuck-me eyes are key to playing this kind of harp
