You’re in heaven
This is heaven now
You’re in heaven…

As I’m currently watching (some rewatching) ALL the star treks, and am currently in TNG, I can’t help but love these two.Their relationship is so confusing though! They sometimes kiss and give each other oogly-eyes and yet they both fall in love with other people all the time? Ughh betazoid relationships are strange.
Rendezvous In The Arboretum 1993, colored pencil on Letramax 6000 illustration board.
my favorite TNG book moment is when Riker is first hitting on Deanna and she asks him what the T is in William T. Riker
And he’s just “Terrific.”
“Terrific at sex.”
And then Deanna proceeded to ignore him until she got kidnapped and they fucked in the woods
—It’s a primitive culture. I’m just trying to blend in.
—You’re blended, alright.
After completing a test simulation on the Holodeck, the other Engineers vanish from the room, leaving DEANNA alone. RIKER enters the scene and approaches her.
RIKER: Something told me you wouldn’t let this go. (a beat) Congratulations. You passed.
DEANNA: (quiet) That’s what this was all about, wasn’t it? To see if I’d order someone to their death.
RIKER: That’s right.
TROI: (somber for a moment) I knew that was part of being in command and I thought I’d prepared for it, but when the moment came I hesitated. Maybe you were right. Maybe I’m not cut out for this.
RIKER: You did exactly what you had to do. You considered all your options, you tried every alternative, and then you made the hard choice. (a beat, then smiles) Come on, let’s get out of here… Commander.
DEANNA looks up at RIKER and then seems to accept his words, though the test has given her a lot to think about. They exit together, the holodeck fading back to only a grid.
