Finding Strength ShepardxAlenko"You mean a lot to me Kaidan, I love you." Three years. Three absolutely agonizing years Kaidan had waited for Shepard to whisper those three simple words to him. As her hand brushed against his face and he looked into her eyes, she held nothing but affection and admiration for him. There had always been holding back, skirting around the idea, and light playful jokes about it. But when he finally had her sitting in his lap, their gazes locked in each other she finally let him know just how much she cared about him. There was nothing keeping her from him anymore, as he'd long abandoned his philosophy of leaving a way out as well. He no longer wished to be with anyone else, no one else would ever be able to fill him so completely the way Shepard did. He wanted to be hers and hers alone, he wanted to be the man she needed, the man she wanted. It was obvious that Shepard didn't actually need a man to protect her. She could handle herself against just about anything this galaxy could thrFinding Strength ShepardxAlenko in Romance More Like This

Things were never easy whenever Shepard was involved. Kaidan would have liked to say he was surprised when Anderson had told him that Shepard had surrendered to the Alliance after venturing into the unmapped Omega 4 relay, destroying the Collectors ship as well as the base then blowing up a mass relay in the Bahak system, destroying the entire thing in the process. The news itself certainly rocked him to his core. Shepard had destroyed an entire system. The way it sounded it was without a single flinch or care, all in the name of stopping the Reapers. Shepard's resolve was never going to break whenever the Reapers were involved. Despite death, disaster and destruction following her around like a second shadow, she still persevered trying to be the biggest hero in the galaxy. But then she went and destroyed an entire system, Kaidan was having trouble wrapping his head around that. He barely could accept the fact that Shepard was alive again, he had watched the original Normandy explode,

"I appreciate the help." Shepard said with a bitter tone in her voice, her hand clasping the recently acquired data pad the Asari councilor handed her with minimal interest of what the report actually said. They were talking high detailed secrets, there wasn't going to be anything in a written report, she already deduced that. The issue was the severity in the councilor's voice, the sheer desperation for help.
"It's you who will be helping us. The Matriarchs are growing desperate, for the first time in our history Thessia is vulnerable." She sighed and began to walk away, her hands folding in front of her body. Shepard could only follow as she continued to explain the situation with incredible skill, the vague details leaving key facts carefully eluded. "For all our intellect we're outmatched by Reaper fire power." Shepard wanted to laugh at that, remembering Liara's father and how she mentioned the Asari tactics were about as useful as tits on a hanar in a time like this.

"Commander Alenko." Admiral Hackett said dismissively. His hand waving at the air as he stared at a data pad in his hand, his back was to Kaidan as he entered the room.
Kaidan still tapped his heels together, saluting the Admiral with a finely engrained sense of respect that could not simply be tossed aside. "Admiral Hackett sir." Kaidan responded. Were anyone around him he might even be so inclined as to yell ten-hut. But it was simply him and the Admiral in Councilor Anderson's office. Which Kaidan found perplexing, where was Anderson anyway?
"At ease Commander." Admiral Hackett glanced at him, his one good eye looking him over carefully while his scarred over blind eye shone against the pale artificial light of the Citadel. "I'm sure you're wondering why I've called you here."
To put it mildly Kaidan bemused to himself.
His gaze was pensive as he stood at a very strained parade rest, uncertain of what to say. He retained a respectable silence. Deciding it better for all part
The Captive (John Shepard x James Vega)Of all the spineless, cowardly, miserable bureaucratic political bullcrap the Alliance had pulled in the past, this took the damn cake. Why didn’t they just dishonorably discharge him? At this rate, that’s where he was headed anyway. They already gave him a damn medal for his supposed heroics, but were quick to dismiss them behind his back and criticize them as though they were acts of terrorism to be evaluated. Alright granted, he might be willing to admit he didn’t have the best track record lately; and maybe having shore leave after that mission a few months ago on Omega was probably not the best of ideas, but he never wanted to pick a fight with Batarians…Honestly how was he supposed to know that relations between them had nearly exploded into a thousand pieces, the Alliance didn’t tell him anything. He was given a promotion and a pat on the back to shut him up, and now he was being firmly kicked aside where this new promotion wouldn’t even be oThe Captive (John Shepard x James Vega) in Sci-Fi More Like This
If Only In My Dreams (ShepardxAlenko)The hushed whispers of wind spun through the twilight sky. Free and void of responsibility, they danced between the sparkling specs of white. The crystallized frozen flakes of snow collected and bunched themselves tight; they covered the world in a blanket of dazzling ivory. It was the darkest hour of the night, the peace and serenity had settled over the city of Vancouver. The glistening utopia slumbered soundlessly. Untouched and undisturbed the people retained their blissful ignorance as they awaited their joy on the morrow. They did not know of the struggles they would face in the coming months. They were unaware of the danger that lurked just beyond the farthest star.If Only In My Dreams (ShepardxAlenko) in Romance More Like This
They lived on borrowed time, an invaluable resource that was being whittled down as the seconds ticked by. Each flake of snow resembled a moment lost, fluttering pointlessly through the sands of time. It was these quiet instances, these most tender semblances of normalcy that felt the bleakest.
