A sad reader accidentally confesses their feelings for pidge?? Maybe some fluff and an unexpected kiss? Thank you!
Oh how cute, fluff is what I live for! Also unexpected kisses is literally the best trope and I will fight people who disagree. And I am so sorry if it is long I’m trying to get use to writing for everyone still so I tend to write a lot in an effort to do so.
“Hey (y/n) can you hold these wires together for me?” Pidge said, the words coming naturally to her mouth and an unnatural jerk in her stomach when she realized that they weren’t there. She had become so accustomed to their help with her many projects that she almost forgot how to work without the extra pair of hands. Her lips pursed together as she sat up and scratched her head, it was pretty odd that (y/n) hadn’t been around today.
Sure Pidge had been gone for awhile, the previous mission of specimen collection on a nearby planet had proven hard when the plants started to fight back, but (y/n) was always waiting with open ears to hear about everything. Them not being there was … unsettling. Pidge puffed out her checks and sat tapping her wrench against her knee. She had never gone in search of (y/n) before since they were always just inexplicably there. And she didn’t really need the help and even if she did Hunk was really more experienced with this and if they weren’t there than they probably didn’t want to be so why should she go and interrupt them.
“Well it’s not interrupting if I just go to see if everything is okay,” she argued with herself, now pushing herself up and waiting just outside of the sensor for the door to open. She lingered a few moments more, her foot tapping away nervously with a lonely metallic clang in the lab. “Yes just making sure everything was fine with the castle while I was gone,” Pidge reaffirmed as she pushed her way through the hallways with an awkward gate in her step, as if her feet couldn’t decide whether or not to move forward or go back.
She finally came to their room and with a deep breath tapped on the door with the wrench that was still firmly in hand. “Uh hey (y/n) are you in there, I didn’t see you yesterday and was er wondering if you knew I, that is we, were back?” she asked in what she hoped was a casual tone. She waited in silence and just when she was starting to wonder if they weren’t in the door creaked open. There stood (y/n) looking as if they had just rolled out of bed, hair tussled and disheveled pajamas.
“Oh jeez didn’t mean to wake you, are your days and nights all mixed up too? going in space with no real since of nighttime can be pretty upsetting to the internal clock,” Pidge said adjusting her glasses and trying not to notice how they managed to stay so cute even upon just waking up “So um yeah go back to sleep if you are still tired and we are all back. So if you wanted to come down to the lab or whatever I will be there and I’m sure everyone else is milling about if you look for them. Except Lance he could very possibly be sleeping …” she trailed off, feeling as if she had already said too much.
Pidge pivoted on her foot, hiding her heated face from view but stopped mid step upon hearing (y/n)’s voice. “I wasn’t sleeping, I guess I just got lazy waiting for everyone to get back. Not that I am much help even with everyone here …” they sighed leaning there head against the doorway and banging it slightly “Why am I friends with some of the most amazing people in the entire universe when I am so … so … so ordinary,” they cried out in an exasperated whine.
Pidge jumped back, dropping her wrench in the process and for a split second wondering if this problem could be solved with any of her tools. That plan fell through just as quick and she was reminded that she really should take her teams advice and spend less time around the machines. “Woah h-hey thats not true. You help me out a lot,” she said patting their arm stiffly not at all prepared for these kinds of situations. She saw the scoffing look she got in return that suddenly gave her the energy to keep talking. No way was a friend of hers going to beat themselves down like that.
“No I really mean it! If I didn’t have you around I would probably end up forgetting how to talk since I spend so much time tinkering around with whatever. And well I like having you around even when we’re not building something, I don’t want to think what life on this castle would be like without you here. Yeah everyone else may have a lion and Allura and Coran pilot the ship but you’re a reminder of home. Something normal in all this craziness and everyone here, not just me, needs that. What more could you possibly want to do when just being yourself helps all of us?” she asked, her stance becoming more firm as she got into her stride. Though almost at once she felt that she must have said the wrong thing although she wasn’t sure where she had gone wrong.
But the glare she was receiving from (y/n) was clear in its intent. At least that was what Pidge thought until she saw the tears glimmering in the hallways dim glow on their eyelashes. She gulped and backtracked, trying to dissect her speech and exactly where she had taken a misstep, but came up blank. Her gut instinct was telling her to reach out and hug them but she held back. If she had simply said the wrong thing she had no idea what would happen if she made another large mistake.
“You just don’t get it,” they sniffled, rubbing furiously at their eyes “you don’t know what its like to watch you be so smart and brave and strong. You’ve lost so much and yet you keep going and I can only wish i could be half as courageous but no all I do is sit in my room and wonder how I can ever be enough for you. Next to you I’m nothing but some human who got sucked into your destiny, dragging you away from being even greater cause you have to worry about where I am when you are doing this save the galaxy thing. I just want to be someone you can love as much as I love you,” they said, the tears now streaming down their face. Their eyes went wide and they clapped their hands over their mouth. “Oh, oh my god what did I just stay. I’m sorry I just haven’t been sleeping and i may be going crazy from it so lets just pretend this didn’t happ-”
They were cut off though from a small, dry pair of lips that weren’t so much kissing them as much as blocking them from talking. Pidge just couldn’t stop herself, it’s what felt right even if she had no experience in it. She pulled away rather reluctantly, unsure if what she had done had been exceptional or not. She just went to open her mouth to apologize, perhaps for misunderstanding what they had said, but was happy to find a much more soft and warm pair of lips working against her own. For someone who had just kissed them herself she still found herself caught off guard that someone would be willing to kiss her back.
When at last both pair of lips were pulled apart Pidge let out a nervous laugh, resting her head against (y/n)’s shoulder. “I think you are amazing the way you are. I always have and I worry about you so much because … because I think I love you too. Er if love means that I feel like I am having a heart attack after doing that,” she said keeping her eyes tightly closed and enjoying the quiet that had fallen between them. Hoping that it was a good quiet and not a “omg I regret what I just did” moment.
“Do you really think you can love someone like me even after all the extraordinary things you have seen? All the people you have met who have all sorts of things to offer that I never could?” (y/n) asked letting their hand find hers and squeezing. Pidge tilted her head back and grinned “Honestly? This is the most extraordinary thing to ever happen to me.”
