All The Whispers
Mass Effect 3
This is all the whispers that Shepard hears during her/his nightmares. I get torn into pieces when I hear my Thane… and Garrus. Legion. Wrex. Mordin…
I warn you, this is painful, but it’s still so beautiful.
but ideally you find someone who will sit with you and glue shit together
The first time Shepard asks Kaidan back to the captain’s cabin after hours, it’s like this.
Kaidan spends a while in front of the mirror. He thinks about shaving. He knows it’d be too obvious. He puts more product than usual in his hair and has to wash it out; the second time around, he knows he doesn’t look as good as he did before he went too far and needed to start over.
(Isn’t that always the way.)
‘Maybe we can, uh, work on some thrusters,’ Shepard said, and Kaidan thought, It could be worse.
It could always be worse.
Pick-up lines and Shepard don’t exactly go together like drell and hanar. There’s a missing piece in there somewhere, that’s for sure. Some guys just don’t—some guys just aren’t—and Shepard’s the everything in-between, anyway, the glue that holds the parts together, all of them falling into line around this nucleus, the center of their galaxy.
Or, if Kaidan wants to get romantic while trying to pick out which blues he should wear, if he should go for the new fatigues or the old ones, the heart.
Kaidan shows up on time. He’s never been the guy who gets to a place fashionably late. Shepard opens the door and his sleeves are rolled up; there’s glue on his thumb and more of the same on his cheek.
‘Thrusters,’ Kaidan says.
‘Yeah, it’s a two man job,’ Shepard replies. ‘You up for it?’
There are two mugs of coffee on the desk between the model ship they might just build together. It’s better than the usual—crashing a big one, watching it go up in flames.
Kaidan could look at it like fixing what they broke one time, starting small, figuring out the little things.
Or he could look at Shepard’s face, tight concentration making him look young again, and pass him the red paint when he asks for it. Fingers touching. Scars and calluses and glue.
Sorry I’m late to the party (got sick unfortunately so couldn’t finish on time) but here’s my contribution to last week’s celebration of the sexiness that is Kaidan Alenko (and by association his equally gorgeous lover J. Shepard)
Actually still not completely finished, adding a couple more sexy images and cleaning the existing ones up more, but I wanted to put something up for now since some have been waiting.
