Ashley and Kaidan pulling through Virmire with scrapes, burns, maybe even a gunshot wound—but still alive.
Ash and Kaidan ripped apart by the Normandy’s crash, brought back together after Horizon by a few awkward vidmails and the fresh pain of Shepard’s return.
Ash and Kaidan worrying themselves half to death over the one that was injured on Mars.
Ash and Kaidan spending more time in the hospital than Shepard does, visiting the other, bringing candy and books and brandy and stories.
Ash and Kaidan holding each other up after Thessia, trying to keep themselves from falling while they sag under Shepard’s weight.
What we could’ve had.
WHY YOU DO THIS
commissioned by the lovely teadrinkingdragon
There are not words to express how much I love this.
Thank you so so so so so so so so SO SO much!!!
Miranda and Kaidan…
I will go down with this ship….
lift me up, hold me down
Shepard: "It makes you human."
You know what I like? (Aside from that this Shepard has the same facial scars as my Merryn.) I like that Shepard is really and truly the leader. Everyone comes to Shepard for advice. (Shepard goes to Anderson.) Maybe Kaidan isn’t exactly looking for advice in this scene, but he and most of Shepard’s besties do at other times. It just feels different being Shepard than it does being Hawke. It could be because I always go sarco or agro Hawke, rarely diplomatic, but folks ask Hawke for help killing things and Hawke happens to offer personal opinions along the way. There are the loyalty missions in ME2 where it’s the same scheme (kill x for me because of y), but in ME3 I think as a result of those missions, it is assumed, the trust is there reflected in how they talk to you and ask for input.
I haven’t put a lot of thought into this, and maybe I’m forgetting some things from the Dragon Age series because I played all three Mass Effect games straight through recently. And maybe it’s because there are 3 whole games with Shepard to develop those relationships and the bond of trust where Dragon Age switches up the protag every time, I don’t know. It just feels different and very special to be Shepard.
If you ever missed out on this beautiful scene of Mass Effect.

Searching for my mojo in different places tonight, with much poking about at nothing. I think this helped a bit.
The sentinel has nice cheekbones.
I don’t know who made this but THIS IS AMAZING!!!!….I’m now imagining him riding a motorcycle, nomnomnom ;)
"Well, that’s not fair.”
Shepard scowled, lip pulled back and eyes squint in irritation. His eyes, however, were nothing short of playful. “How is it that you wear my clothes better than me?”
The biotic ducked his head, hiding the flattered smile before lifting his head and sending the Commander an incredulous look. “I look no better or worse than you in this jacket.”
"Of course no, Kaidan, and the fatigues just so happen to make all Marine’s asses look as round as 21st century jaw breakers."
"… Take your damn jacket back. I’ll get my own." Kaidan tried to shimmy it off, but was stopped by board, precise palms on his forearms and a nibble to his neck.
"Not a chance."
The Major’s lips couldn’t hold back the ghost of a smile.
“and there are benefits to that happiness” is just another way of saying “please excuse me i don’t mean to be rude but tonight i’m fucking you”
