just a little thing with sspacer's Meera. 

Slow times were always the ones held most dear, the spaces in between stress and combat. Gentle little bubbles of almost-happiness, filling him and proving that, yes, this is right.

She’s so much less composed in these times, when sleep tugs her expression smooth, when dreams command that she sprawl. He clasps her close, then, when there’s no quick wit. No sharp tongue ready to object. He inhales, and when the breath comes out it’s shaped along the words of a prayer.

She is his only god, and she shakes him to his core.

Tell me about Meera's childhood. *chinhands*

Welll :D she’s been trained for combat since she was small. Her parents are Alliance and they raised her to be a soldier. She was never going to be anything else.

She was pretty sheltered. Because of everything her parents injected to her and even planning her exposure, she’s teaming with biotic power she can’t really control. She wanted to be normal. So for one night when she was 15 her mother let her sneak out, promised she wouldn’t tell her father. Shepard took off her biotic suppressors and kissed her mother on the cheek.

She went out to a school party with some of the other children her age when she lost control. Killed a boy. He’d pushed her down into the punch bowl, told her no one wanted her there. She bawled into her mother’s chest and her father made it all disappear.

But, before her 16th birthday rolled around they had shipped her off to Annapolis.      

*cries* i think about the girl shepard used to be a lot.

“it’s like you’re screaming and no one can hear. you almost feel ashamed that someone could be that important, that without them you feel like nothing. no one will ever understand how much it hurts. you feel hopeless, like nothing can save you. then when it’s over and it’s gone, you almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back, so that you could have the good.” [x]
