Cheiloproclitic - Being attracted to someones lips
I’m borrowing Mica Shepard from aphreal42 for this, my own Shep was being ridiculously unhelpful. I hope that’s okay.
Shepard is mad, and Kaidan really ought to be paying more attention to her words. The mission didn’t go as planned, and she’s right, he did screw up, he knew his mistake the moment things went wrong, and he certainly won’t do it again. But right now he can’t focus on anything but the fact that she’s okay. His eyes wander to her lips. They are beautiful, even as they form the words of her angry tirade, and it’s been far too long since he’s kissed them.
“It cannot happen again,” she finishes. “Am I being clear?”
“Crystal,” Kaidan says, stepping closer and taking her hand. “I won’t miscalculate like that again. But… you’re okay?”
Shepard blinks at him, and he can see the wind go out of her sails. She’s always been that way. Just a little bit of kindness undoes her completely, though he’s probably the only one to recognize it. It kills him that she’s known so little understanding in her life that she doesn’t know what to do when she’s faced with it, but if she’ll let him, he’ll spend the rest of his life proving she deserves it.
Shepard licks her lips, and Kaidan loses his train of thought.
“I’m fine,” she says.
“Good,” Kaidan breathes, and leans down to claim those lips at last.
Mica drabble: Speculative Purgatory conversation
(So I haven’t actually started Mica’s ME3 playthrough, but in playing Marcus’s I couldn’t help but think how she would respond to certain situations. There are always times in Bioware games where my character wants an option of “I am so not having this conversation.” Mica, apparently, decided to substitute in the conversation she would have.)
Mica stares for a moment, trying to figure out how she can blame her slight inebriation or the noise of Purgatory for what she thinks she just heard. Eventually, she concludes that, no, that is what Joker said. “Why the hell are you asking me?”
aww Mica and Kaidan
aphreal42 prompted: Mica Shepard, Secrets
Joker was smart enough to know when to keep his mouth shut, but he couldn’t hold back a smirk as he watch Shepard ream Kaidan a new one, her face only inches from his, one finger pointed at Kaidan’s chest in accusation for some screw-up that Joker did not want to know the details of. Kaidan’s eyes were wide, his mouth open, apparently just as speechless as Jeff was.
It was pretty obvious that Shepard still had it bad for Alenko, and that they’d both probably be better off if they’d just start making out, but Joker didn’t think Shepard would appreciate the observation, and decided that this was one secret he would take to the grave.
theunlikelyheroine prompted: femShep/Joker, pause
It was only the briefest of moments, only a pause between Shepard dumping Joker unceremoniously into the escape pod and the shudder that wracked the Normandy, tossing her violently out of his reach.
He screamed her name as the explosions erupted around them, turning their beloved ship into so much debris, but it did no good.
She was gone.
F!Shep/Joker - late night chats
“A race that nearly wiped out the galaxy…and I let their queen go.”
Joker shrugged and said, “If you hadn’t let her go, you’d have been dooming an entire species to extinction.”
He could have told her he had complete confidence in her decisions, that she was the smartest and most capable person he had ever known, that he would follow her to the ends of the galaxy, but instead he just poured her another drink and watched her knock it back.
oh mah gosh! Kaidan/Femshep, taking her to his parents house in Vancouver for the first time.
“So this is where I grew up, before Jump Zero, that is…I used to climb that tree every day…my mother has always grown roses in the front garden…I hope they got the comm telling them when we were coming in…”
“Lieutenant, are you nervous?”
Kaidan let his words trail off as Shepard’s warm hand enveloped his, pulling him closer, and closed his eyes as she whispered in his ear, “Relax, Alenko…everything will be perfect.”
