I don’t think enough ME fans realise just how much Vega loves Shepard. He worships Shepard.
- In Paragon Lost he nearly pees his pants just hearing Shepard’s name.
- He wears a “Normandy Forever” pin on his uniform.
- In his rousing speeches he always uses Shepard as inspiration. He even quotes Shepard directly.
- His team mock him all the time for acting like a schoolboy crushing on Shepard.
- At one point he heard Liara say that she personally worked with the Commander, and he literally shoved his love-interest out of the way to hear more.
- When he’s inconsolable because of tragic events, he actually snaps out of it at hearing that Shepard has been brought back to life.
- In the official comic he’s intent on quitting the Alliance for good. The only thing that changes his mind is Anderson offering him the assignment to guard Shepard.
Thing is, James is almost 10 years Shepard’s junior. He must have been a kid when the Commander was out winning wars. Whether your Shepard is male or female, whether they survived Mindoir, endured Akuze, triumphed at Torfan, or held the line at Elysium, James Vega knows all about their career and holds them up as the ultimate example of a hero. All he wants is to be like Commander Shepard.
Wrex to the rescue.
The first time I saw this scene I thought Shepard was simply getting Kaidan out of the way (4th gif), which I thought was a little odd considering he was the only one of the two wearing armour. Now I realise she’s protecting herself by using him as a human shield.

and also that AIUs speak shibe
well this gives shipping a whole new context
im gonna cross my fingers and hope this me3 save doesnt do the
