We need more mass effect brotp fanfics!
Although it’s awesome to read about your favorite romantic pairing wouldn’t it be fun to write about your favorite Normandy relationships? Brotp is gender inclusive, don’t leave out the ladies! Here are some head cannons for inspiration.

Liara and James continuing to stay in touch via online poker matches.
Jacob takes a shower on the Normandy, for fun Kasumi hides his clothes and he has to get either Garrus or Jack to help him find them again.
Tali notices Joker sings in the shower when he thinks everyone is asleep. Eventually she decides to sit in the mess hall and sing along. Joker is embarrassed at first, but he allows it to keep happening on the condition that Tali tells no one.
Joker and Miranda have an awkward conversation while they’re waiting for Shepard in the com room.
The dream that Kaidan has the night Ashley died on Virmire. (Or visa versa)
Jack and Miranda’s relationship after the party and how they might stay in touch, I.e insulting yet encouraging emails about their work in the war and beating cerberus.

Grunt trying to get Garrus to help him replace all of Shepard’s fish before she notices he ate a few of them.
Drunk Tali teaching Legion to play pattycake for some odd reason and then dragging him into watching fleet and flotilla. In order to reinforce the positive interaction with creator Tali'zora Legion quotes it every time he and Tali talk and she doesn’t know why.
Liara teaches Garrus, James and Kaidan all a formal (samba, foxtrot, ballroom dancing, take your pick) dance to woo their love interests on different nights of the week, Garrus is already pretty good so he and Liara practice harder moves together.
Garrus and Ashley getting overly competitive at the shooting range.
Garrus and Jack doing shots.
Expand on the conversion after Liara tells Wrex she’s of Krogan decent.
Kaidan meets Jack on the Citadel and they end up talking about all of the ultra powerful biotic things that they can do. They end up playing regular matches at the arcade together to see who’s more impressive.
The conversation with ____ that finally brought Ashley around to like aliens.
The missing conversation between Thane and Kaidan in the Hospital in mass effect 3.

Prompts are good for writing, drawing or just reading. Add the characaters in that I you want! Swap people in and out!

A/N: Remember how I said I had writers block? Yeah… uh… have well… this. 8k words of angst and smut, of what I imagine a loyalty mission for Kaidan being like in ME2. I cried like three times. You’re welcome.
Shepard’s private terminal blinked furiously, to indicate she was getting a call. She set her datapad and her third cup of coffee for the day down on her desk before pressing ‘receive’. Her eyes lingered on a very particular message in her terminal for just a second, however. She still, after weeks of it sitting there, had no idea how to respond, or what the best way to respond to it might be. How did she even begin to broach the subject of what had happened on Horizon?
a good concept: Legion and Jack become unlikely friends because Jack really appreciates the fact that Legion is frank, upfront, and doesn’t lie. Legion insists that he, as a personality construct occupying a machine, can’t really like a human but. jack’s presence has a comparably low rate of conversational conflict.
