*swoons* I love love LOVE these cute and sweet sisterly moments between Liara and Ashley that you've crafted :D
Very highly unusual and rare since Ashley is usually such an ass to Liara, so it's really nice to see this 360 degree change in their relationship. Good writing :)

kudos on the watch references. I am sure that each branch may call them a little something different.
Our first watch was 0800 - 1200
0000 - 0400 was called the balls to four. Double zeros meaning the balls.
Never heard of a dog watch.
Ok dark thirty which I still use... is anytime it's dark and your butt should be in bed... No one should ever see 0300 in the morning...
So everyone who reads this...know that somewhere out in the cold, or heat is a sailor, solider or airman standing watch for your protection.. ALL OVER THE WORLD!

I like the fluffy... more more
however being on a very large Naval ship my self (13 stories hight and as long as a football field) it was never cold. It was always HOT! And in Saudi even hotter...
but I like the story and really like how it developes.

Ah, poor Joker. You'd think the Shadow Broker will have better ways to get off, despite his medical condition.

Wow! Were you in the navy to have such knowledge about navy watches? Or do you look them up just to make your writing authentic? Either is admirable!
And Shepard has to find another pillow...

The cobalt blood gave it away for me. I'm happy about it though, diehard FemShep/Liara fan as I am.

What! I'd definitely go and find out Jennifer Hale's distress calls.
And you managed to make me laugh with the first sentence! Especially the mental image you inspired with the word 'precariously'!

Oh how I love the way you depicted Liara! So vivid. "By Liara's reckoning, Ashley did not return for two hundred and fifty-three seconds, but she didn't begrudge her the appallingly inaccurate estimate." - That's exactly my thought some times!

ha ha ha I was wondering if Shepard had eaten something funny for breakfast. Awesome story!

Haha... Very cool. I hope you get around to updating this some time. Keep up the good work.

Lol. I was going to say Shaira sounds really OOC, but after seeing "Consort's Love Potion" I got it.

Cute. I like this friendship between Liara and Ashley; as unlikely and odd couple-y it seemed at first, it works really well the way you unfold it. It's cute how Liara blushes when Ashley says its normal not being able to sleep when you're used to someone else being there with you. Funny how even chamomile tea will knock Liara out, and her comeback when Ashley teases her. I like the stories of their childhood and families and it's adorable how Ashley tucks Liara into bed at the end.
It feels odd for Liara to say so bluntly that the crew has become more of a family to her than Benezia ever was. There's nothing to say they weren't close at some point in Liara's life and for her to say everyone on the crew is like family seems too open for her.
Other than that though, everything feels spot on. I like this chapter.

Meh. Can't really say I like it. I spotted the lift from the Princess Bride, but don't think it's works in this case. The idea of the Joker as the secret Shadow Broker just doesn't seem probable. All the porn jokes don't fit either and leave a bad taste. Then Shepard letting Joker stay on even as the Shadow Broker just because Garrus promises to keep him in line?
This is more blunt than I usually am in reviews, but I wanted to be honest.
