now because of apostates’ kissy posts this morning i’m thinking about how the mass effect folks would kiss
there’d be static shock with jack. you’d come away not with any kind of stubble burn but actual biotic burn, tongue numb, teeth practically shivering.
and garrus—garrus would sting and pinch. it’d be rough, awkward, breath filling your mouth, a whistle through the scar, a chuckle, and then that voice, like molten silver burning through steel, saying, ‘can’t calibrate that. it’s off the charts.’
james… i don’t know. i see him as the type to lick his lips plenty before he zooms in for the kill shot, and there’s not so much finesse as there is power, and the sudden hint of thoughtful tongue, that makes you realize he’s way up in his head, and you need to get him down in the gut.
samantha traynor’s kisses kind of vibrate. huh.
miranda lawson is slow. thorough. complete. you’re not sure if it’s a scientific probe or a lesson in how to investigate. how to know, to feel. to make a checklist of your teeth and tongue and leave you wanting a second examination.
kaidan alenko—how to describe kaidan alenko? because there’s two kinds of kaidan kisses. one is what you might expect. a hello, a handshake, a question. friendly, soft, tender, with only the slightest taste of bacon at the end. it’s the mouth-to-mouth equivalent of a palm on the small of your back. but the other… the other’s bossy. no bruises, no biotic lash, but no room for breathing, either.
joker kisses with too much tongue. EDI is included in a world of spit. she does not mind it as much as anyone else might, in her position.
thane krios… when you kiss thane, you come away dizzy. mumbling words that don’t make much sense. summer. a throat lozenge. i suck it til it’s only a sliver. rainstorm. wind in the tall grass. then your knees buckle and he’s there to catch you.
and javik… well, javik kisses like a primitive, and he knows you like it.
(meanwhile, the urdnots pretend they’re going to kiss you, then headbutt. hard. and in a way, it’s almost preferable. also, shepard-commander, at your latest convenience, would you mind teaching this unit how to make out?)

Someone definitely mentioned this before but it’s making sense now. The whole “let’s have Caskett kiss in the darkest place ever” has been a constant up until now. Now, when Castle finally tells Kate something personal about himself, thus revealing who he is and letting her (and us) in to his world - hence the better lighting…?

Yesterday some people were musing on Agron, Nasir, and religion, and I just had a few thoughts to contribute.
First of all, slaves in Rome were often very religious. As antiquecompass pointed out, most of what we know about slaves’ lives, in their own words, is derived from inscriptions that they left at temples. There are at least three holidays we know of specifically for slaves, and several cults that they participated in. Some kept their native religions, some adopted the gods of Rome, and some created a sort of hybrid religion, combining their own gods and similar Roman deities. Nasir, since he barely remembered Syria, would probably believe in Roman gods.
Secondly—and this part is my opinion—I think Nasir is actually religious, and Agron is not. This is partly because of how they talk about the gods. Agron, generally… well, it’s mostly blasphemy. “Fuck Jupiter,” “fuck the gods,” etc. Nasir seems genuinely earnest when he says “The gods return you to my arms,” so while it could be a figure of speech, I don’t quite think it is.
Also, I noticed today when I was rewatching some Nagron scenes: Agron says Jupiter. Multiple times. We know that the writers are aware of varying names for gods, because Heracleo, who is Greek, says Poseidon instead of Neptune, so presumably, the decision to make Agron use Roman names is deliberate. To be the best of my knowledge, he never says Jupiter in Blood and Sand or Vengeance. The people he spends the most time with are Spartacus (Thracian, Greek-speaking), Crixus (Gallic), Gannicus (Celtic), and his own kinsmen. Even if he spends some time with people who are culturally Roman, it’s not much, and it might not be enough to influence his way of speaking so significantly.
If Nasir was religious, on the other hand, and talked about his beliefs, prayed, what have you, it’s probable that Agron would hear him enough to start saying Jupiter instead of Thor (or Donar—although I’m guessing the writers wouldn’t have him use that one).
