Oratorio chapter 1 . 7/8/2014
This is really lovely and realistic. It's tough to write this pair and get them right, but you have here.
Suilven chapter 1 . 2/28/2013
I have a total soft spot for FemShep/Zaeed, and you hit all my shipping buttons with this one. Seriously, how sexy is this (and beautifully descriptive, too):

"All the while he grew more bold and stroked her hip, gradually edging her shirt up until he was touching her bare skin. She didn't comment on his actions, only snuggled in closer and turned her head toward him so he could feel her breath on his neck. When he was finished weaving the tale, he fell into silence and suddenly he was aware of how warm she was in the cooling air, the rushing waves, and the light that was slowly draining out of the day, revealing a broad swath of stars that salted the sky."

Loved it.

I loved the descriptions of the sunset, the sand between Shepard's toes and the slow advancement of Zaeed's hand over her body (and of course her reaction to it ;) ).

Your Zaeed's voice was perfect, I could just hear him saying those lines.

And I really liked this part:

"I've been waiting weeks to do that," she said.

"You could have done it sooner. I wouldn't have said no."

"I know, but you so rarely shut up long enough for me to ask."

"There you go, taking the piss again."

LOL, great banter between them. :D
