Sleep talkA soft startled hiss breaks the silent room as cold feet are placed upon a very warm bare back. The owner of said back groans a little after being disturbed from sleep and turns over on his side to see the top of a black haired head poking out from under sheets. A small smile plays across his lips, the initial annoyance of being woken up fading away, and he scoots a little closer, very carefully as to not disturb his sleeping partner, until her head is nestled under his chin and her shins are pressed against his chest as she curls up into a small ball. It was quiet throughout the ship, or as quiet as the large vessel known as the Avalon could get.Sleep talk4 days ago in General Fiction More Like This
A hint of lavender wafts up from her hair as Auri moves closer to her fiancé, snuggling up with him. Sorrow tilts his head down and places a light kiss on her forehead, stubble on his chin tickling the skin there before she lets out a tiny half awake grumble and a small sigh. She then buries herself into him. An arm wraps around h

Chapter 11. Citadel, again
They docked at the Citadel at shortly after 1000 due to a delay in the docking process. During the whole time Shepard stood behind Joker's seat, drumming the fingers of her right hand on his headrest, evidently impatient to get things done. Joker tried hard to ignore the constant thrumming. It was distracting. After a few minutes Joker looked up at her annoyed.
“Commander, could you quit doing that? It's driving me nuts. I can't help it if Traffic Control is so slow!”
She stopped and went out to Kaidan and Ashley who were waiting just outside the cockpit in front of the airlock.
“What's taking so long, Skipper?” Ashley asked.
“Delays at Traffic Control. Our docking request hasn't been processed yet.” Shepard grumbled. She was not looking forward to the task at hand. Telling the admiral his missing platoon had been lured into a tr

Dying Shadows (Part 1 of 2)
*Written by Legion716*
Shenko, the Sangheili escapee from a prison cell inside the gargantuan flagship of the Dark Krosheets, flees in a hurry with a Needle Rifle in hand, sprinting through the claustrophobic hallways with a sense of dread, knowing if he’s spotted by even just one Krosheet soldier, he’ll be relentlessly hunted down by hundreds more until he’s torn to shreds. Perhaps e

Piercing blue eyes narrowed. “Are you saying you don't?”
Kaidan clenched his jaw and stared at his drink. It had been a long day and all he wanted to do was have a beer or 2 and unwind. The last thing he was expecting was Garrus to come in and ask for his help. And he never would have guessed Garrus wanted his help rescuing Shepard.
It had been 3 years since the Reapers had been defeated. The galaxy was rebuilding. Things were, for the most part, pretty damn peaceful. All because of Shepard. Three years of people adulating the woman he could have had and didn't because he was a stupid, stubborn ass. Three years of him wanting to talk to her, to apologize. Three years of him starting to type a message only to lose his courage and delete it. Three years of “I'll give her a call and see how she's doing” never happening. Three. Damn. Years. He was cert
The ProposalHe was pathetic.The Proposal1 month ago in Romance More Like This
Absolutely and completely and utterly pathetic.
Men, other men, managed to do this every day. Every. Damn. Day. He was a marine; a marine and a Spectre, and in the past few years he'd seen and been through things that those other men wouldn't even dare to imagine.
Yet, they managed to do this, and he couldn’t seem to.
He wasn't quite sure what the problem was.
He loved her, he loved her so much it hurt, and after everything they'd come through, he knew without a shadow of a doubt that no-one could ever take her place in his heart. He knew that more certainly than any of those other men knew, because he'd already lost her once and he knew, firsthand, how empty a life without her could be. He never wanted to go through that again.
And he knew knew she loved him too.
She told him, she told him every day and she showed him, in a myriad of tiny miniscule little ways all the time.
But a part of him still thought she might say no
Once Upon a Snowy Day in Canada. On the plus, and more logical, side, she was sure that that the planet she was stood on wasn't actually trying to kill her.Once Upon a Snowy Day in Canada. 1 month ago in Romance More Like This
Which, all things being considered, was a good thing. It certainly did not bode well for humanity if this particular planet was in fact trying to kill her.
On the negative, and slightly less logical, side, it really felt like the planet she was stood on was trying to kill her.
Which, all things being considered, was a bad thing.
It wasn't like she was exactly a stranger to icy death-trap planets. In fact, most of the icy death-trap planets she habitually visited usually had a lot more Geth shooting at her, and a few thresher maws dotted around, just to make it really interesting. This planet had neither, which should have been a plus. But damn, if the icy wind and freezing cold didn't make it feel like this planet had a personal grudge against her.
She gripped the edge of the fur-lined coat she was wearing and wrapped it more securely around h
