The two replies I owe are both NSFW and I AM IN A PUBLIC SPACE. BUT I REALLY WANNA REPLY TO THEM.
Let’s just say Fem!Shep and Ellie share similar interests……
Okay so Ellie is afraid of sharp things and screwdrivers because of the whole Stross incident right?
Well Isaac is an Engineer. He uses tools n shit to build shit.
Tools = Screwdrivers.
Thus the headcanon proposed:
Ellie can’t go anywhere near Isaac’s workspaces because there’s always a screwdriver lying around. If he knows that she’s gonna come near his workbench he hides all the screwdrivers so she won’t have a panic attack. And if she does happen to see one of his screwdrivers she starts crying uncontrollably and hyperventilating and having huge anxiety attacks so he calms her down by hugging her and kissing her face and telling her that he won’t ever let something like that happen again and its all cute n shit.
