“Maybe there’s a universe out there
— where we end up together. Maybe there’s a universe where I’m the right person for you. Where I adore every nice thing you did for me without starting to resent you.
” - Gaby Dunn
I bet Keith’s life with his shack in the desert was Fun so here are some headcanons:
When he first moved in he spent a solid week just sleeping
*after waking up*: Time is an illusion and the world is fake
After he moved into his shack and gotten used to it he LOVED it, the Garrison and life in general was really stressing him and he liked being on his own
He spent most of his time in Big T-Shirts and Boxer Shorts because he’s hot and it’s comfy
As a kid his favorite movie was Cars
Now that he’s older it’s Big Hero 6, because Tadashi reminded him of Shiro but he couldn’t watch it after the first time because it hurt too much
He really likes plants and likes to see them grow
He never intended on getting a mullet, he just got lazy and let his hair grow out, he liked it so
He loves cats and cats love him back and it’s the BEST
He gets REALLY excited when he discovers something new about the blue lion’s energy
I’m not kidding his eyes light up and he smiles and he gets very dorky about it
When he has laundry or dishes (or anything that requires him to Be An Adult) he groans and wishes there was someone else to do it but realizes he has nobody
He will literally take any other option for food that doesn’t involve actual cooking and/or work
Meaning he lived off of instant noodles and eggs
Sometimes he’ll just stop and think “should I really be living on my own and stay a dropout despite having skills?” but he ignores that and continues following the vague blue lion energy and the hope that everything will turn out okay
*goes into the cave*: *hums x-files theme*
Keith is actually?? a decent artist?? The carvings in the cave inspired the hell out of him
When he gets frustrated with his work or gets stumped he drives his bike out into the desert and it clears his head
You know what kind of sucks in real life relationships? Endless angst and drama and uncertainty. You know what’s really fun in fictional relationships? Endless angst and drama and uncertainty that adds conflict to the story.
Sometimes people enjoy horrible things in fiction because they’d never want to experience those things in real life, but fiction allows people a safe, reasonably controllable space to experience incredibly intense emotions and conflict and drama.
