The pairing of Shaun Hastings/Desmond Miles is common in Assassin's Creed fandom.

Fandom

The ship has been around since the release of Assassin's Creed II, which was Shaun's first appearance.

Multiple scenes in Assassin's Creed: Syndicate added further fuel to the ship.

Common Tropes in Fanworks

  • Angst of Shaun watching Desmond lose grip on his sanity, and later grieving Desmond's death

Fan Perspectives

I ship Desmond and Shaun together with a burning passion, though I feel their relationship was all angst, and some comic relief in between. [...] He regrets letting Desmond die in the fullest, because part of him died that day as well.
He lost a significant amount of self worth over the course of the loss he’s been dealing with, and he knows it’s not his fault, but his body still thinks it is.[1]
