Because theathenanebula wanted Shenko first cuddles. And I was more than happy to oblige.

Shepard couldn’t believe what they’d just done. Weeks and months of small flirtations and stolen glances lead to this, and she honestly couldn’t believe it. But even more so, she couldn’t believe how happy she was.

Shepard finds the best way to help Kaidan with a migraine is to turn the lights off in Starboard Observation, let him rest his head in their lap as he lies there, eyes closed, and just be there for him.

He pauses, puzzled, and assures himself that EDI had definitely said Shepard was in their cabin.

Shepard playing with their model ships and tiny toy figurines. Shepard drops them in surprise and a blush quickly rises to their face, illuminated by the light of their omni-tool. Shepard starts to try and explain but Kaidan just laughs, gives Shepard a loving kiss on the lips to quiet them, before getting onto the bed, pulling the duvet over them both and playing Shepard’s game late into the night.
