“Are you so blind in your infatuation with the commander,” his face merely a few inches away from hers, close enough to pick up her scent on her breath. “That you cannot see I only have eyes for you?!”
Head dipped so low his chin hit his chest, Javik sighed as he lifted a heavy hand lay it on hers. A trill ran up her back and over her crest at the contact. Carefully, Liara manoeuvred her grip to fit around his two fingers, and gave a comforting squeeze.
Already the shape of his melancholy sang alongside her own.
“Pah,” scorned Javik, studiously not meeting her eyes as his fingers curled around hers. “Now I cannot even remember her name!”
By far and large, That Hunts on a Lonely Hill is my favorite piece of Mass Effect fanfiction. There are some close runners up but out of all of them this hits the spot for me like no other. I continue to look forward to watching not only Javik and Liara develop as characters, and as a relationship, but the world that Ninaunn develops around them.
The characters are on point, their issues never undervalued, and the breadth of the galaxy is so very real.
Seriously, read this fic if you haven’t. You won’t regret it.
who cooks normally?: Liara, until they have children. Then Javik learns quickly how picky the kids can be (and once he served them fried Salarian Livers. Kids enjoyed them way too much, although Javik argues that it never happened. There was a report the same day about the Blasto Movies director “disappearing”)
how often do they fight?: Constantly, sometime its about Javik’s influence on the children, Liara refusing Javik to let the kids go Thresher Maw riding, (One of the kids begs to ride Kalros.) The fights aren’t really fights, more just Javik stirring Liara up because she bites.
what do they do when they’re away from each other?: At first, Javik is more then happy, Liara doesnt like it. But the roles swap after they have kids, and then they barely leave each other once the kids are all grown up and trying to conquer the galaxy
nicknames for eachother?: Javik calls Liara “Asari” when he gets angry at her for something.But nicknames are really non existent. Except for “King of the Protheans”, when Liara is being sarcastic
who is more likely to pay for dinner?: Liara, Javik uses the excuse: “After 50,000 years and the fall of my Empire, do you think I have anything on me?
who steals the covers at night?: Javik, King of the Protheans
what would they get each other for gifts?: Liara gets him ancient treasure, replicated things from his past and donuts (Javik loves them.) Javik doesnt know what to get her. He asked her Father once, she was no help. He got her drawing/writing equipment, as a joke. That didnt go down well.
who kissed who first?: Liara
who made the first move?: Shepard. They both agree that it was all Shepard’s fault
who remembers things?: Liara, Javik denies everything. Never says sorry, never does anything wrong
who started the relationship?: Shepard
who cusses more?: Liara
what would they do if the other one was hurt?: Javik usually tell her to get over it, but sometimes, when its genuine he tells her:
okay well you guys know i make second gens of everything
so i guess it’s mass effect’s turn? and ya i was havin fun with those bouncy sprites so i made them a lot oopz
i should put a cut but i wont
firstly: a t'sovik babby
I’ve had her general look rolling around in my head for awhile I guess
I imagine that she’d be just idk. I think that she’s be very smart and knowledgeable, and always know more than she’s letting on and all that. At school, she’s that one girl that everyone’s like, should we be scared of her or what, and then Javik comes to pick her up and he has this deep scary accented voice and hes huge and has so many eyes and all the other little kids are like yes yes if that is her dad then we need to be scared of her
but i also imagine that she could be a little egotistical at times you know because she is basically untouchable in every sense of the word, her ‘auntie’ and 'uncle’ are garrus vakarain and commander jane shepard, and then her mom is the shadow broker, and her dad is the last prothean, and her cousin is urdnot grunt so she probably has the tendency to be cocky and loud-mouthed??? i imagine
but still very well behaved because in the empire an Avatars daughter was expected to be well behaved blah blah
shakarian babby I:
she has a blog
I imagine that she’s kind of more quiet, reserved, and good at following rules (unline her parents haha) Though, once you know her, she is actually very very loud and proud and cocky (she gets it from her dad). shes not very sociable, and id imagine that shes one of those people that seems like theyd be very friendly or whatever, so everyone is always wanting to be their friend, but it turns out that they’re very shy or awkward and its hard for her to make friends? but once she makes a friend its like, a friend for lyfe
she’s smart, but a slow learner, and also a bit gullible.
shakarian babby II:
he found his dad’s rifle collection and thought it was the bomb
he doesn’t know what whispering means, and is generally very loud and silly all the time
he’s not notably smart– he’s a fast learner, but it’s mostly situational and as soon as he doesn’t need the information he drops it (he’s gotta keep space in his head to learn about guns and stuff). though he is good at making up creative insults and comebacks.
he’s very sociable and loves chatting it up with people, and he’s really great at picking out traits and analyzing personalities (he gets it from his mom) and diffusing negative situations between himself and his friends and his family really quickly.
(i messed up on her everything its a really easy fix but im lazy)
her name might be irikah i think that could be cute hahah
she’s this scrawny sassy kid that likes fish a lot and i havent really thought about her a lot haha oops
