HIRA DO HIRA
Something felt off about the commander. Normally impassive, she toyed with her empty shot glass, brow furrowed as she watched the reflections of Illium’s neon lights.
Miranda knew she would refocus on the mission the second her contact arrived, but it itched at her. It was better to address problems directly. “Is something wrong, Commander?”
Shepard turned her gaze to the biotic. “Would you go out with someone you barely know?”
Miranda allowed herself a slight smirk. “That’s generally the point of going out with them. What brought this on?”
"Asari I met briefly on Feros, ran into her yesterday." Shepard scratched her nose, frowning harder. "Apparently tried to flirt with me."
"Apparently?" Miranda repeated.
"Krios and Garrus pointed it out."
"Ah." She bit back a smile. "Are you considering accepting her offer?"
Shepard shook her head. “No connection there. Just confused me.”
"Well, you are rather attractive, Commander," Miranda pointed out, tone sly. "And of course there’s the pull of strength and status."
Humor flashed through her green eyes. “Not what I meant. Never understood fraternizing happening without a prior connection.”
She leaned back, smiling openly now. “You sound like you’re reading from a military manual.”
"Was born and raised Alliance," Shepard reminded with a brief smirk.
"Which explains much about you."
A moment passed and her smirk widened. “Walked into that one.”
Miranda chuckled. “That you did. So you’ve never ‘fraternized’?”
"Not without a prior connection," Shepard answered, warmth coloring her rough voice. "You?"
"Not for a while," she said, sobering slightly. "It complicates things."
Shepard hummed in agreement, then set her glass aside with a slight head-shake. “Relationships are weird.”
Miranda nodded ruefully. “That they are, Shepard.”

April is Asexy April in fandom; much like Femslash February, which celebrated works with female/female pairings, this month’s goal is to celebrate and educate all and sundry on asexuality-related matters through fanfiction. Today’s fic is from 2012, but it’s a great example of what this month could be.
love is for children and other lies spans Natasha’s life from when she was first recruited into the Black Widow program until a little after the events of The Avengers. Author Fahye doesn’t draw from any particular comics canon, instead choosing to construct their own backstory for Natasha through what we know of her from her MCU appearances. I may be biased, but Fahye does a great job. What a backstory this is—it’s so emotional and so real that I almost want Marvel to keep their vague Black Widow movie promises to themselves, because I’ve already got my Black Widow headcanon right here.
Just a reminder that I wrote this narumitsu fic for Asexy April because for some reason it didn’t show up on the tag.
