Anonymous asked: Hi! I was wondering if you (or maybe any of your followers) had any idea whether Ashley ever says exactly when her father died? I assume it was before she enlisted/before her story about her youngest sister takes place, but I'm working on a fic about her/Shepard/Kaidan & want it to be as canonically accurate. If you could give me your thoughts it'd be great!
My memories are a little hazy now, but I do recall a conversation where Ashley explains her family history, talks about how they were treated in the military, and how she was so stubborn to enlist despite all that. I think it’s there that she mentions that, when she got promoted (to gunnery chief? idk, maybe smth below), the first thing her father did was salute her. So yeah, that would mean he was still alive when Ashley enlisted, and even got to witness some of her success.
I’m not sure when exactly the story about Sarah takes place though.
Hey, guys? Got Anything to add?
Just pondering about early team milky way, and now I wonder…
What could Virmire possibly mean to Ashley, if she is the one rescued?
I mean, she talks about never being good enough for the Alliance, not feeling worth what she’s fighting for and all that.
Yet now her friend - a superior officer - insists on giving his life for the mission so that she doesn’t have to; and her commanding officer is willing to sacrifice an experienced soldier and a valuable war asset that Kaidan is with his biotics and tech savvy-ness, to save her.
Idk, it’s just giving me way too many feelings.
Friendly reminder that it’s officially VSAW
I didn’t choose to ship Shepard/Ashley/Kaidan OT3.
Their banter, playful interactions and soulful dialogue over the course of all three games made me.
And there’s no escaping it now.
So, are we starting another VS week on 24th or no?
Ashley week didn’t get much attention.
Seeing as the VSAW is almost over
I humbly suggest we use “VS appreciation life” tag for VS-positive stuff from now on :3
You know, until a next VS week.
