Hope and a Fighting Chance, Chap. 3
It turned out that Joker and Garrus had been right... Perhaps all that Shepard really needed in order to beat the Reapers and save the galaxy was someone that loved him. If the last few weeks were any indication, at least. Simply put, the Commander was on a roll. He had just killed another Reaper, ended the quarians v.s. geths conflict without having to sacrifice either side, and now, they even had Tali back.
According to EDI, Shepard's biometrics showed a significant decrease in terms of stress levels, as well as an increase in his reflexes and his ability to achieve and maintain optimu

"Can you feel it Shepard? Feel the quickening? Illusive Man better say his prayers tonight, 'cause we are coming for him. Murderous asshole. Oh yeah... Tide is turning... I feel it."
They had been confronted to many atrocities over the last few years, but this? He didn't know how Shepard had managed it... Calmly convincing Henry Lawson to hand Oriana over to them in exchange for his life. Perhaps because deep down, he knew that Miranda was going to take a stand against her father and put an end to his horrible schemes, once and for all. If she hadn't, Kaidan probably would have been the one giving him a little "biotic pu
Hope and a Fighting Chance, Chap. 2
Kaidan had arrived at the little café about 45 minutes before the time of their meeting... And now, he was starting to regret it. For the last half hour, he had been rehearsing in his head what he was going to say, how Shepard was likely to react, different scenarios with different outcomes... Some rather good, others nothing short of catastrophic... The anticipation was simply driving him mad!
It didn't help that this was the very first time that he'd been thinking about getting involved in a serious relationship with another man either... Not that gender mattered much, as far as he was concerned. Though many men or wo

Shepard's arm is tight around me,

It was inevitable.
There's no way I could have prevented it.
But it still sucks.
And dealing with the aftermath.
The snide remarks.
The witty comments.
"You and Kaidan, huh?"
as I sit around the table with a few members of the crew.
Kaidan got a migraine this afternoon:
a really bad one.
He tried to pretend that it was okay.
But I saw right through it,
and sent him down to see Chakwas.
His absence gave them a chance to ambush me.
And now I'm here:

Garrus looks increasingly cheerful.
Joker is smirking.

Hold on, Kaidan...
Don't give up... saved my life, and I can't... Oh Goddess... Please pull through, Kaidan... We all need you, but Shepard... I'll go see how he's doing... be right back... better not go anywhere...
Hey Kaidan... Don't know if you can hear me... take my chances... Don't die, Kaidan... You've got to fight... need you in this... I could use you... Come on Kaidan, fight... that's an order...

Sentinel - Chapter FiveRevelations:
Kaidan couldn't remember the last time he'd been this frustrated.
The group had been working non-stop since the start, but the strain was beginning to show on them all. Almost a week into their private investigation had left them with a big fat nothing to show for, something the Commander was happy to let them know by yelling at them to "get their fingers out of their asses and get something done".
While not directly motivating for none of them, it was their own work that left them with a sense of both misery and failure.
Especially for Kaidan.
He really didn't mind the yelling that much, he was well used to that, being a j
Sentinel - Chapter FourChoices:
Kaidan never regretted having that discussion with his father that night. Never regretted listening to his father's advice, arguing back and forward between what Kaidan felt was smart and what felt right.
It had taken most of the night and several Canadian lagers until they reached an answer and by then they were both tipsy, talking loudly outside on the balcony until Kaidan's mother had threatened to set the dog and the hose on them both.
He had been twenty-three then.
Now he was closing in on twenty-five, feeling just as young and inexperienced as he did back then. He wasn't as closed off anymore, learning to trust and to work

The voices were incomprehensible through the veil of black around me. It had thinned over the time, allowing me to catch a glimpse of the world behind it, only once. I had bathed in light that time, so bright it had blinded me. Something had covered my eyes, a gentle hand and something had stung in my neck.
"Not yet, Lieutenant."
And I had fallen back into familiar darkness.
But now it was fading, growing weaker with every heartbeat, until it felt like I only had to reach out a

The first beer was soon followed by a second and a third. I must have looked pitiful between all the celebrating people in the club, sitting hunched over at one of the bar stools, nursing my already stale beer.
"You look miserable," the barkeeper told me when he put down a dangerous looking cocktail in front of me. "Something to cheer you up, mate."
He winked at me and left to serve something to a salarian further down the long bar. I looked suspi
Worth Living For, Act I, Chap 3
Well, at least the mission on Therum had gone much better than Eden Prime, Kaidan had to admit. Despite the heavy resistance they'd met from the geth, they'd managed to locate Dr. T'Soni and bring her on board the Normandy safely.
The Mako had also proven useful and very effective against the attacking synthetics. It was equipped with a large mass accelerator cannon that, as Garrus put it, "packed one hell of a punch," as well as a more regular mounted machine gun. Shepard, however, simply preferred to run over any geth that were unfortunate enough to get in his way. Crude, but effective. Thankfully, the shields and armor on

Summary: Urz and Kaidan may not always see eye to eye, but they'll always have one thing in common--their love for John Shepard. Partially Urz's POV.

Living on the Citadel with two Spectres as your owners is about as cushy as things could get for a varren like me: guaranteed meals every day, including some snuck-under-the-table treats; a comfy place to sleep, be it in my own bed or theirs (but only when Kaidan isn't around); lots of traveling to places varren have probably never been to; and more love and attention than I could possibly ask for or expect.
If there's anything I could complain about, it's the lac
Sentinel - Chapter TwoLittle Boy Blue:
After three days, Kaidan was sure that the blue-eyed guy was stalking him. Either that or he was assigned to every god damned place he happened to be at.
He didn't look at only him, that much Kaidan was sure of. But when Kaidan was looking at him, the stranger seemed to be studying him.
This made Kaidan nervous. And when he was nervous, he fucked up more easily.
"God damn it, Alenko, where the hell is your head?! You would have been dead out there," Michael barked, tugging off his helmet so he could give Kaidan a proper glare as they walked out of the simulator, breathing hard.
"I am sorry, okay? It's just That gu
