in the tempest

Head-canon that Ryder discovered if she/he wears socks, they can get a running start from their quarters and slide down the hallway in the Tempest. The many slips and falls attracts the crews attention, who are all fascinated and exasperated at this simple yet amusing activity. This leads to a contest to see who can make it to the far end d without slipping or falling, until Lexi makes everyone stop after Drack manages to put a crack in the Tempest wall.

It’s World Theatre Day!

So as a celebration, I’d like to post a series of photos. A number of you have asked about shows I’ve done in the past, so here are some highlights:

Pharaoh, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat:

Haberdasher, The Taming of the Shrew:

Laertes, Hamlet:

Oberon, A Midsummer Night’s Dream:

King Alonso, The Tempest:

Gordon (the Dead Man), Dead Man’s Cell Phone:

Antipholus of Syracuse, The Comedy of Errors:

Jack Worthing, The Importance of Being Earnest:

Mr. Wickham, Pride & Prejudice:

Alonzo, Cats:

And of course…

Wheatley, Portal 2: The (Unauthorized) Musical:

Lexi has SAM listening in on every single member of the crew at all times so that she can listen in if any of them say certain words together in a sentence

Kallo already had to frantically call Lexi to stop Suvi from putting alien stuff in her mouth (again) and Drack was on Kadara and was like “I bet I could drink [the highly poisonous water]” and Lexi immediately came over the comms and goes “NOOO.’” 90% of Lexi’s job is getting everyone on the Tempest to stop putting foreign matter in their mouths because they’re in kindergarten 

I’m a tad bit disappointed that we didnt get the alien safe sex talk from our resident doctor. I mean come on! A brand new species of aliens, and it’s pretty obvious if your Ryder and Jaal get together, shouldnt there have been some kind of…reassurance…that they even….could do it? Without someone having some kind of horrible reaction..?

Man, where’s Mordin when you need him??

Surfeit is a very old English word. It is recorded as early as 1393. It comes from the Latin roots sur- meaning “over” and facere meaning “to do.”

“Love comforteth like sunshine after rain, But lust’s effect is tempest after sun; Love’s gentle spring doth always fresh remain, Lust’s winter comes ere summer half be done; Love surfeit’s not, Lust like a glutton dies, Love is all truth, Lust full”
- William Shakespeare

Si amano.
Di un amore che è nelle loro vene.
Di un'ebrezza eterna.
Nell'istante e nell'eternità.
Nel contempo la paura è sempre presente.
Paura della mancanza.
Paura di ritrovarsi senza ossigeno.
È la chiarezza e insieme la confusione.
È a un tempo il fulmine e l'annientamento.
La più bella della primavere, la più violenta delle tempeste.
Eppure si amano.
—  Guillaume Musso

Chapter 1

AO3 |

Emma’s face grows even paler, a feat he’d not thought possible, her lips pulled into a tight line.

He’s sure he looks much the same, his sudden realization having turned his veins to ice, his stomach twisting uncomfortably and his heart made of lead. He’s felt this before - on two separate occasions ( three , a traitorous voice in his head supplies, reminding him once again of how Liam was snatched back from the clutches of death only to succumb as soon as they thought they were free) - and the depth of it shakes him. She is not Milah. She is not Liam. And yet -

“What kind of poisons?” She interrupts his thoughts, biting off the words through clenched teeth.

He needs the acid in her tone to bring him back, to distract him even, but when he looks at her that familiar feeling once again lodges itself in his chest, tenterhooks that refuse to let go. “There’s at least a dozen I know of, and probably several dozen more that I don’t.”

“You said there was nothing on that arrow.” It’s not quite an accusation, but close enough.

“I said there was no Dreamshade on that arrow.” He picks it up once more, examining it. “Whatever was on it either stayed inside you or isn’t visible to human eyes.”

“Any ideas?” her voice wobbles on the words.

“Well, we can cross Dreamshade off the list.” He regrets the words the instant they leave his mouth, and her eyes grow hard when she hears them.

let yourself breathe

Saskia loses a sanctuary, and gains something unexpected in the process. Jaalmance (is this the ship name??), pre-relationship

Saskia had been raised on Alliance vessels and space stations, the hum of a drive core or a mass effect field generator, the chill of metal under her feet as natural to her as grass and sunlight were to others. She knew the black depths of space, and had never been afraid.

But living in the Tempest, with SAM in her head and her crew watching her every move, waiting for the sign that she’d finally snapped and gone mad—was like the entire ship was shrieking and she was standing in a huge, empty room with thousands of unseen eyes pulling her apart.

me, at level 5: i’ve got to be careful position my squad just right or else these guys will carve me up. can’t take any risks. need to concentrate fully.

me, at level 53, after i’ve abandoned using guns at all in favor of pull + charge + flamethrower + krogan warhammer to the muffled sounds of dragonforce’s ultra beatdown album: why the fuck wouldn’t bioware just patch in the jaal romance at this point? the dialogue for m!ryder exists and they’re going to need to pull nyasha hatendi back in for dlc anyways in the near future. i’ve already done like four quests for straight people in this game, why would we ever need more? three straight squadmates? it’s completely unrealistic. i don’t even know two straight people to hang out with, where would i find three? how would they all get concentrated there on the tempest?

Can you just imagine though how cute Liam and Jaal are? You know Liam casually lays in Jaal’s lap while Jaal just pets and touches him and they watch movies and laugh because man it’s all so stressful but these movies? Naw they’re safe.

Jaal’s body warming every time Liam laughs and looks up at him with those big, kind eyes. All the kisses so many kisses!

And the dates in Aya where he just feeds Liam everything just to see him hum or gag then regret everything when Liam feeds him food on the nexus. Holding hands all the way to the shooting range where Jaal shows Liam all the new weapon tech they have then they compete for the best shot, loser eats the species least favorite dish.

You know they’re like the Tempest’s morale support, like, you sad? Let Liam fix that. Unsure? Jaal’s got you. Proof to the colonies this world is worth the trouble.

Aaahh they’re so in love!!

Liam wearing Jaal’s jacket and they sleep with Liam as the big spoon because Jaal adores physical contact. Wake each other up with neck nuzzles and nose kisses.

Liam is very ticklish! Jaal is like “This is very cute and weird? I love this?” So he sneaks the tickles in making Liam’s face burn as he plots revenge.

Aaaaaahh they’re so in looovee
