    Summary

    Whatever Kaidan had been expecting from the Butcher of Torfan, this isn’t it.

    There’s nothing krogan-like about the soldier sitting at the table. The lethal gaze from the vids is watery and unfocused. The empty bottle in his hand isn’t a gun, but he clutches it like one. When the bartender delivers a fresh one Shepard doesn’t look up, merely pops the top off and takes another quick pull.

    This isn’t good.
    ~

    Sam Shepard and Kaidan Alenko, in the years before the Normandy. AKA, the slowest of slow burns.

    Summary

    The 14-year old-kid who changed David Anderson's life.

    The unexpected mentor who changed Sam Shepard's.

    The kid can’t sit still. Sam is like a walking, talking action figure, in a perpetual state of motion with no sense of his own body. According to Daniel he’d just hit a growth spurt, shot up to over 175 cm in the space of a month, and it shows. It’s like watching a puppy try to figure out what to do with four feet, and the Alliance is shipping him off to learn how to play with dark energy.

    No wonder Daniel had called him. Without someone to keep an eye on him, this string bean of a kid might take out the whole system.

    One-shot stories featuring Sam Shepard & David Anderson pre-ME1.

    Summary

    Kaidan owes Ashley a drink. He's not sure why, but she says so, and he knows better than to argue.

    Kaidan’s not more than two steps out of the Citadel airlock before Ashley grabs him by the front of the shirt. “Come on,” she says. “You’re buying me a drink.”

    “Wait, what?”

    She doesn’t answer, just starts walking, Kaidan’s shirt still trapped in her fist.

    It’s Ashley who notices first. Ever alert, ever-suspicious Ashley who sidles up and says in a low voice, “Turian on your nine, we’re being watched."

    aka, the realisation that Garrus is a hot boy.
