Fandom: Mass Effect 3
Prompt: Just Say Yes- Snow Patrol. Any OTP
Bekah sent this prompt and I decided to dabble back into Mass Effect and Shrios. I have a horrible fascination with a Shepard that is really being broken down and just so tired by ME3 and how Thane pushing her away and the fight would make her feel especially. The comfort and safe haven something she would maybe need and then expecting it when she gets the email only for the conversation every Thanemancer dreads. The song referenced more probably the subtle context of what their argument was. But I decided to focus much more on the conclusion.
Is it wrong that this entire bit makes me feel all warm?
Scoot over, we’ll sit and stare together.
Just some Shrios. Honestly, I wish I hadn’t lost my writing mojo half way through this. I feel like I’d like so many more of these drabbles if I wasn’t in the mood of thinking anything I write as of late is complete crap (which isn’t good because I’m going to have to get to writing essays soon for school and those are important).

This is a beautiful, sort of bittersweet piece. I have to say, I really like her Shepard. And all the Shrios feels, of course.
So I don’t remember if Samara let’s you take a gun with you to go talk to Morinth. But I decided, thinking about it, that it makes more sense for Shepard to be packing. Nothing like the Widow or Cain. But a good solid gun (especially if Shep doesn’t have biotics). I mean they’re on Omega of all places. And if Shep’s allure is to be a dangerous killer then there should be a gun I’d think. Might be a headcanon tho, I don’t remember like I said.

More high Shepard, which is one of my favorite things. Also hot, pressed against the wall Shep. Another awesome thing in ficlets.
I probably get one message every few days trying to tell me how I’m right or wrong about calling drell anatomy certain parts.. so, here, take this. It’s a little anatomy sheet I made just for you guys.
They have ribbing, and fringe. Not frills. They are not a frilled lizard, or a cobra, they cannot flare out their necks like said animals.
They inflate, like a frog, or a chameleon, and create a hissing noise with air. Their FRINGE is very dense hard cartilage, that doesn’t move, or wiggle around. You don’t see Thane’s wobbling about when he gets punched or if he moves. It’s dense enough to be pierced, too, so the piercings wouldn’t weigh it down or anything.
They aren’t frilled lizards.
I choose to call it fringe, because that’s the correct terminology on those types of lizards. When I look at drell’s fringe, I think of a bearded dragon, and how their cheeks are spikey like that. So, I call it fringe.
I call the spikes on the top of their head spines, because that’s what it’s called on lizards that have spines.
And their ribbing is very similar to the line markings on Chameleons. So hopefully people will stop asking me, or telling me what’s wrong.
You like saying frills and thinking drell are like frilled lizard and can puff out their faces like twice the size just because you think it’s funny or cute or whatever? Fine, but stop telling me I’m WRONG because I DON’T think they can do that.
Now headcanon about the “headstar”.. I could go into various detail about that, but it’s really long and thought out and I really don’t want to type everything I have written down, but basically, it’s just there, or it’s not. Some drell have it, some drell don’t. It makes no difference, but that’s what I call it. It has a social meaning—not really any significance, it’s kind of like a beauty mark, where there’s a myth that it means something depending on how many points it has—see I’m getting into details. IT MEANS NOTHING, IT’S JUST WHAT I CALL IT.
I like this vocab, a lot of thought has gone into it. And I know how you feel about Frill Friday, so how does Fringe Friday sound? I would love a whole day just for Drell.
