To Sooth a LionIt’s late. I know it’s late. I’m tired, but something keeps waking me. Something inside me calls me awake when I start to doze. It warns me of something horrid that may occur.To Sooth a Lion by *LilyAlisandra
So I stay awake, my eyes focused on my turian. He’s bathed in the blue glow from the aquarium, the light dances off his plates and highlights his clan markings.
Suddenly he stirs. A turian takes up a lot of space when still, but when in motion they could take up a whole room if they felt like it.
His body trembles, and I wonder what he’s dreaming about. His talons dig into my hip in a painful way. “Garrus, baby, you’re hurtin
Chimera: Deleted Scene - B-day RequestGarrus peaked out into the mess hall from his place in the main battery. It was silent except for the natural hum of the ship’s core. Slowly, he moved through the ship, finding his way to the kitchen.Chimera: Deleted Scene - B-day Request by *LilyAlisandra
“Strawberries,” he muttered to himself, searching the cupboards for the pointed red fruit. “Strawberries,” he muttered again, shoving tubes of dextro-friendly paste aside.
“Bottom drawer, in the fridge, they’re next to the diced watermelon,” said Seraphina, popping her head from around the corner. Her sapphire eyes watched him curiously. “What do you need strawberries for?” she asked,
A Very Normandy Christmas: Part Two"I have something for you," Garrus said, flicking his mandibles in a roguish grin. He held his hands behind his back, leaning back and forth on the balls of his feet. "I think you'll like it."A Very Normandy Christmas: Part Two by *LilyAlisandra
Rylee smiled, and her emerald eyes smiled with her. "Oh really?" she asked, tipping to the left a little. She'd had just a bit too much to drink. "What'd you get me?"
Garrus tapped her nose gently with the tip of his talon. "Close your eyes," he said softly, in a way that sent shivers up her spine.
She obliged, pressing her eyes shut tight. Her cheeks flushed pink in anticipation.
He raised his right hand over their heads, leaning down so he was a f
A Very Normandy Christmas: Part One"Explain this to me one more time, Rylee," Garrus said, watching as Kasumi bounced around, hanging up streams of red and green lights. Even Grunt, Zaeed, and Jack came up from the Engineering Deck to join in on the transformation of the Normandy.A Very Normandy Christmas: Part One by *LilyAlisandra
Rylee smiled at him in an overly kind way. "Christmas," she said, that smile not leaving her mouth. Her fingers moved again to her head as she clipped in another warm green strip of hair. "It's a human holiday, Garrus. You can celebrate it with the rest of the crew or not. No one will hold it against you either way."
"Is anyone else not celebrating?" he asked, feeling the answer to already be no.
When It Raynes: Chapter Five - DifferentRayne had never complained about the crew quarters on Alliance vessels when she first started out. It was sufficient for a woman of her station and it was comfortable enough. But over the past few years she'd become spoiled.When It Raynes: Chapter Five - Different by *LilyAlisandra
She had private quarters, fish tank, private bathroom, desk, couch, and plenty of space to spare. Now she didn't even have a bunk.
There wasn't much space left over with the full crew. So Rayne found a place to rest wherever she could. The Med-bay a couple of times, borrowed Liara's chair whenever Liara was on missions. She even napped in Nihlus' bunk when it wasn't in use by either Nihlus or Soren. It wasn't the best s
You're Still an Idiot, Big Brother"So, let me get this straight. You quit being an idiot long enough to tell her everthing. And somehow managed to dance around the part where you tell her you love her. Is that right?" Solona asked, her moss green eyes boring into him with frustration.You're Still an Idiot, Big Brother by *LilyAlisandra
Garrus had been avoiding his sister since he got home. But when a Vakarian sets their mind to something...there's nothing you can do to stop them.
They sat in his room at a stalemate while Garrus silently cursed himself for not locking the door before having some "alone time". Slowly, though, Solana managed to coax out information, and occasionally needed to pause to compose herself. When he a
