IT’S ALL FUN AND GAMES UNTIL YOU REALIZE THE RELATIONSHIP OF TWO FICTIONAL CHARACTERS OWNS YOUR SOUL AND YOU CAN’T GET YOUR LIFE BACK AND NOTHING MATTERS ANYMORE
because shepard and kaidan totally swap hoodies whenever they’re apart for extended periods of time ;w;
Shepard inspected the neatly folded blue pile sitting on the edge of his bed in his cabin; it was Kaidan’s spectre hoodie and on top sat a small slip of paper. He reached out and picked it up, bringing up the paper closer to his face, he could make out Kaidan’s clean handwriting, ‘since I’ll be gone for a longer period than usual, I thought you might like this to keep you company, Kaidan’
He let out a small chuckle, apparently he and Kaidan had had the same idea - Shepard packing away his N7 hoodie in Kaidan’s bag before he left a few hours earlier.
Carefully, he unfolded and pulled the hoodie on and stood there for a few moments in the middle of his cabin, drawing the material closer in to himself, burying his nose deep into the soft lining and drawing in slow breaths, drawing in Kaidan.
“I miss you.” He whispered quietly into the fabric.
As he gathered himself, pulling up the zipper and making his way towards the elevator, Shepard could almost hear Kaidan’s ‘I miss you too’ and he smiled.
