Winter Storm | Mass Effect | Guardians in the Darkness | Nyx Shepard x Kaidan Alenko
Summary: Nyx is awoken by an unexpected bump in the night and experiences her first real winter storm.
a/n: This was prompted by a post I saw of a Canadian storm. While I’ve been through hurricanes and other windy battering storms, this just floored me. And I figured that my spacer Shepard might not react ‘normally’ or calmly to such a weather event. And this happened.
Read on AO3
Winter Storm
Snap. Pop!
Nyx wriggled at the sounds, but they seemed so far off. So sleep held it’s grasp, though she tightened her arm around the man she was sprawled next to. A few hollow knocks resounded through the small apartment, which her dreaming brain turned into noisy neighbors. It wasn’t until something cracked against the glass a few feet above her head that she finally reacted.
“What the …?”
With the next series of high-pitched pops, she rolled off the side of the bed landing in a crouch. She yanked her sidearm from the bedside table, then rubbed at her tired eyes with the back of her hand trying to figure out what the hell was going on.
“Kaidan?” she whispered, tugging at the sheet with one hand.
He just groaned at her and stole the pillow she’d left behind, burying his face into it.
The sound cropped up again and she crept toward the door of the bedroom, expecting … Well, she didn’t really know what she was expecting, but it sounded like the damn place was under attack. The lights of the courtyard were barely visible beyond the picture windows in his living room, but she finally got a better look at what was going on. Curtains of white whirled around beyond the glass, when a large ball of ice bounced off the window she jumped at the sight and the sound that accompanied it.
The warm hand on her shoulder, prompted the same reaction. “Dammit!” She spun toward him, then back to the window being pelted. An exasperated sigh fell from her lips as she tried to calm her nerves.
Kaidan chuckled and pressed a kiss against her shoulder while his other hand slipped around her. All around them the snapping, popping, and knocking of hail echoed. She felt a little foolish realizing it was in fact just the weather that woke her and set her on edge.
“It’s just a storm.” His voice was low and gravelly, with a calm sexy tinge to it that she couldn’t rationalize.
“A storm?” she asked. “It sounds like the whole building is under attack.”
“It is. Kind of.” His words came out against her skin, between slow kisses. His arms around her waist held her tight, trying to impart some sense of comfort.
“This can’t be normal.” The building seemed to creek and moan beneath the assault of the weather. “Should we leave or seek shelter, or something?”
“We’ve got all the shelter we need,” he said against her temple, tightening his arms around her.
“Are you sure?” she asked, turning toward him.
“Yes.” He took her hand and tried to coax her back toward the bedroom. “It’s just a little winter storm.”
“Little?!”
With an amused chuckle, he took another step and she reluctantly moved with him, but once they were in the doorway of his bedroom, she halted. Her keen gaze fixed on the insanity outside the window. The way the snow moved through the air like ribbons behind a running child and the thunk and thud of icy projectiles. There was nothing little about this.
“But,” she tried to come up with an argument that sounded cogent and viable as she gestured toward the window with her scarred and trusty Edge.
“What were you going to do? Shoot the hail before it hit the glass?” he teased, pulling her closer in order to relieve her of her pistol.
“It sounds like hell is breaking loose.”
“It is. It’s a storm.”
“This is not ‘a storm.’ Sounds like the world is ending out there,” she argued, letting him pull her against his chest. His hand moved down her arm and past her hand.
He eased the pistol out of her vicelike grip, and moved it between his hands behind her back to set it on the dresser. “It’s normal.”
“This is not—”
He pressed a finger against her lips and she huffed at him. “For winter, in Canada,” he added. “It is.”
A loud impact resounded through the apartment and she pressed herself against him. When it happened again, he chuckled and draped his arms around her.
“This is worse than Noveria,” she complained.
He hummed. “I’m pretty sure the experiments running amok still make Noveria worse.”
Another massive piece of hail bounced off the living room window, making Nyx jump. She immediately started laughing at her own reaction. Kaidan joined her, pressing a kiss to the top of her head as he rubbed her back in a soothing, repetitive motion.
“Come back to bed,” he suggested, grinning at her.
“How can you sleep?”
He slipped out of her embrace, keeping a hold on her hand as he stepped back toward the bed in the center of the room, beneath the window being pelted with speeding balls of ice.
“Aren’t you worried about all the hail?” she added.
Kaidan tugged her hand and she took a step toward him. “Nope.
“Sounds like an invasion. Almost expecting pirates to kick in the door.”
He grinned at her, clearly amused. “Lay back down. Get some rest.”
“You can sleep through this?” she asked in disbelief.
“I could if you were in bed next to me.”
That stopped all her arguments cold and flipped a switch in the back of her head. It was going to take a moment for her brain to reset after that. In her distraction, Kaidan managed to get her back into his arms.
“It’s nothing. Really.” He dropped a kiss on the tip of her nose while her brain still tried to work around the implications of what he’d said.
“What about the window?” she managed to eek out, though her mind still spun around the myriad of potential meanings to his comment that was probably far more innocent that she could let herself allow it to be.
“It’s withstood at least a dozen of these.” A soft kiss on her chin punctuated his assurance. “It’s also shatterproof.” He pressed a soft kiss to her lips, one she couldn’t not return.
“That just means it’d crush us both in our sleep.”
Kaidan snorted, then shook his head. “Would you feel safer on the sofa?”
Nyx thought about it a moment. “Nah. Too exposed. The windows in there are larger, lower surface tension.”
Her rationalization faded when she blinked up at him. His amber eyes were soft and welcoming, a little crinkle in the corner betrayed his smile and the happiness it sprang from. Her chest tightened as she looked up at him, a new realization flitting into her head.
“Besides, I think I might have found the safest place in your apartment already,” she said as her hands worked their way up his arms slowly until she could clasp them behind his neck.
That earned her a wide smile that could melt away the chill of the storm. The tip of his nose nudged hers and she tipped her chin higher to offer him unfettered access to her mouth. Kaidan kissed her softly. His hands on her hips, steered her toward the bed, though he refused to stop kissing her long enough for her to crawl back enough for him to join her.
Even as she tottered and started to giggle, he still held her cheeks gently and pressed light kisses on her mouth at least until they both found themselves back in bed. Then and only then did he brush his thumbs over the apples of her cheeks and slow his kisses.
Kaidan shifted first, grabbing up the sheets and blankets and throwing them over her legs as she rearranged the pillow he’d stolen earlier. When he laid down on his side, she turned on hers to face him, wriggling closer until there was almost no space between them. She pressed one of her feet between his ankles and he hissed in reply.
“How in the hell are your feet that cold?”
Nyx chuckled, burying her face against his chest as she shrugged.
“You couldn’t have even been out of bed for five minutes and they are like ice.”
“Must be a Canadian winter thing,” she chuckled. A series of hailstones pounded on the window and she flinched closer to him.
Kaidan just pulled her tight against him and snuggled the blankets around them, her mostly. “Must be,” he replied in an incredulous tone. He curled his finger under her chin and kissed her tenderly. “Better?”
“Best,” she said, sliding her arm around him.
The storm raged for hours more, but eventually, for all its rage and fury, it lost out to the constant, steady heartbeat that finally lulled Nyx Shepard back to sleep in the arms of a man that regulations told her she couldn’t want.

cuddling! on the couch! having missed each other! (or maybe a date that ended w them both exhausted from the travel and just falling asleep before going anywhere)
Looky look! I finally wrote something for it! - Also on AO3.
~ Stiles walks inside with a heavy sigh, leaning back against the door. It was a long day at work, one that has him grateful to be home. He’d been a part of a hit and run chase, practically all of the station was, and a robbery, all of which he had to do the filing for. To say he’s exhausted is an understatement. He pulls his utility belt off and sets it on the front entrance table, unbuttoning the top button on his way into the living room. “Derek? Babe?” “Finally.” He turns toward the kitchen to see his mate pulling something out of the oven. “You said you wouldn’t be home late today.” “I know, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t make any promises.” He walks over and hugs Derek from behind, kissing his shoulder. “I missed you.” Derek’s hands settle on his as he leans back against Stiles. “I missed you, too.” “Wanna go cuddle on the couch and watch a movie?” “I’d love that.”  They hold hands as they go into the living room and lay back on the couch. Stiles wraps his arms around Derek and holds him close, handing him the remote. Derek goes to turn the TV on, but then sets the remote down.  “What’s wrong?” Stiles asks, looking at Derek. “I just really missed you. Can we just…?” Stiles smiles. He’d had a few days off so it makes sense that Derek missed him so much. “Yeah, of course.” He kisses the top of Derek’s head and closes his eyes, relaxing in his mate’s embrace.

The Dummies Guide to Hand-Holding for Buddies
Based off the anon tumblr prompt: "i was wondering if you could write cas being touch-starved (as human or angel, your choice) and dean realizing? if it doesn't make you uncomfortable could you have cas cry as well when dean touches him? idk just looking for super fluffy stuff."
Summary:
Cas gasped, “Please-,” and tightened his grip on Dean’s hands. He immediately silenced his thought and released his grip on the hunter.
“Sorry,” he muttered.
“Nah. Don’t be sorry. I get it,” Dean whispered as he looked down at their hands and licked his lips. A strange weight lifted off Castiel’s shoulders when Dean grabbed his hands more firmly and held them tight. They let their hands rest on the mattress between them. “I get it. Contact - touching - it’s important for humans. Sounds dumb. But it’s true. People need… like a herd or clan or whatever. We’re not meant to be alone.”
Cas looked blankly at him. “That seems like interesting advice for you of all people to give me.”
Dean chuckled, nodding. “Yeah. But I do have some friends and I have Sammy. Still, you have a point. I mean, how do you think I know? Why do you think I am the way I am? Like I said. I get it.”
(PSA this is not in the "How Long?" universe. It's a separate, unrelated one-shot.
I'm thinking of creating a tag list as suggested by one of my darling readers- please let me know if you'd like to be added to my taglist for writing updates! I started a teeny one below the cut <3
Edit: 🙄 it helps to include the link

When the caretaker brings the injured whumpee home and gets them settled into bed, and then leaves to get them some water, only to return to the room a few minutes later to find the whumpee’s dog curled up in bed with them. The dog staying there for hours, knowing that the whumpee needs them, and then continuing to stick close to the whumpee as they recover, trying to comfort the whumpee whenever they can.

cuddling the main six would include...
a/n: i just wanna be cuddled by.. any of them
(the old lucio art is by @bastart13 but i changed the picture anyway)
warnings: none
Tumblr media
Asra
Asra was born to cuddle
When they comes home after traveling for so long, they’ll sneak up behind you and wrap their arms around your waist, snuggling into the crook of your neck
Faust likes to join in the cuddles, sleeping on one of your pillows or between the two of you
Asra loves spooning, it’s one of their favourite cuddling positions
Just holding you and making sure you’re safe and with them is such a reassurance
Asra doesn’t really talk during cuddle time, they just like to lay there next to you and enjoy the silence
Sometimes Asra will quietly hum a song they have stuck in their head and play with your hair
Likes to be the little spoon sometimes
Tumblr media
Julian
He’s a big cuddler
Julian just likes touch in general, it’s definitely his love language
He likes laying on top of you while cuddling, mostly because you can’t get up until he lets you
If you initiate the cuddling, Julian will be blushing because he’s usually the one to initiate most things
But he would also be very happy
He loves having his hair played with or his back rubbed
He also likes spooning (he’s the little spoon)
Sometimes you’ll just be lying down reading and he’ll just jump on top of you and start cuddling, it scares the shit out of you
Tumblr media
Nadia
Her bedsheets are so soft
Nadia’s bed in general is super soft and comfortable
She likes facing you while cuddling and likes to talk about whatever is on her mind
Whether that’s asking about your day, telling you about hers, shit talking the Council
Her room always smells like essential oils
Nadia likes to rub your arm or back while you two cuddle, always mentioning how she should sign the two of you up for a spa day
Tumblr media
Portia
ugh my wife—
She’s so soft and she’s the best cuddler out of the six
i will fight you on this
Her bed has so many pillows and blankets to the point where you can get lost in them
Once you two lost Pepi in the blankets and she freaked and ripped apart the bed
She likes cuddling into your chest and wrapping her arms around you
Definitely will randomly pick you up at any time and throw you onto the bed
Tumblr media
Muriel
He didn’t know what cuddling was before he met you
Muriel is very shy while cuddling and does not initiate it at all
The most physical affection he’ll do is hold your hand
You lie on top of him while cuddling and trace shapes on his chest
Muriel wraps his arms around you pretty securely because he’s scared you’re gonna fall off by accident and hurt yourself
He likes cuddling a lot more than he lets on
Inanna also likes cuddling, especially when you two cuddle by the fire
Tumblr media
He will never admit to liking cuddles, he’s too prideful
Lucio has a big bed, stretching halfway across the room, because he wants Melchior and Mercedes to have enough room on the bed too
He tries to keep his metal arm away from you as much as possible because he knows it’s cold and sharp
He likes spooning because he can just kiss the back of your neck whenever he pleases, as well as he likes to squeeze your ass
Lucio likes to lay on your lap while you play with his hair, whether he forces you to or not is another story
If you try and leave the bed while cuddling, Lucio will have a literal death grip on you and aggressively pull you back into bed saying you’re not allowed to leave

Was it hard to cuddle with Tai when you were more advanced into pregnancy? Since you had a belly in the way

Dreaming together | Oneshot 1 - Yunho
Inspired and written for @a-soft-hornytiny <3 A/N: I ended up keeping it small, light and fluffy, just like a dream would feel I suppose. Something that pulls at you from your gut and tingles pleasantly at the back of your mind. I hope you enjoy ^_^
--------------------------
You felt so wonderful. Your body was encased perfectly by your soft blankets, keeping you at precisely the right temperature. You could feel a soft glow on your face, and it was slowly becoming lighter behind your eyelids. As much as you loved the way the sun felt kissing your skin, you also didn’t want to leave dreamland quite yet. A smile grew on your face as you felt Yunho’s nose rub your back. He had his arms slung around your waist, and was probably still dreaming sweetly. You drift back to dreamland for a moment, until you feel Yunho stirring a second time. This time he had let out a soft groan, signalling his most probably awakening. His arms tightened around you, pulling you into his chest. His nose now proceeded to nuzzle into your neck instead, pressing little kisses all over it. Yunho smiled into your skin, he loved nothing more than waking up to you right in his arms.
“I don’t want to get up today~” He groggily spoke over your shoulder. “Just want to stay in bed with you all day.” He laughed softly. “I just love you too much to ever let you go.”
He stretched out cutely, before tugging the blankets a little further over your bodies. He made sure to keep one of his arms around you at all times. Not that you would run away, but Yunho wouldn’t take the risk. This all felt like such a dream, and he wasn’t about to let it end.
