Fic Update: Courtship (2/7)
Fandom: Mass Effect: Andromeda
Chapter Title: Sexually (read on Ao3!)
Pairing: Jaal Ama Darav/Skylar Ryder
Summary: Jaal’s family comes to Meridian, ready to ask questions and get some answers about the relationship between Ryder and Jaal.
Notes: Endgame spoilers here.
At the sound of SAM’s voice, Jaal looks up from his workstation in Ryder’s room, even though he knows there will be nothing to look at. Habit. “How can I help you, SAM?” he asks, picking up his datapad. His family wanted a rest after the lunch they just shared, so he took the chance to do some work. He will finish this gift to the Tempest crew, an epic poem of their adventures together, if it kills him. At this rate, it just might if he doesn’t find a rhyme for ‘intelligence’ soon.
I have been researching the tavoan. From the texts I have discovered, I see that the true mother is responsible for organizing the family and that Ryder should not be a part of that. She was not aware of that and planned on undertaking the responsibility herself.
“Of course she did,” Jaal mutters under his breath. No one will ever describe his Ryder as uneager.
She is now aware that someone else needs to take the lead and accepts this. As you know, Ryder’s mother is incapacitated. I was created to help her mother and prolong her life span. Because of this, I feel it is my duty to organize the tavoan for Ryder.
“That is very kind of you,” Jaal says, meaning every word. It makes sense, in a way. The only other person he imagines might offer is Scott, and Ryder’s brother is still recovering from his various maladies.
So I must ask you, does Ryder satisfy you sexually?
