ok i had a whole comic idea for this but it didnt pan out well mostly because of my laziness and i wanted it to be really good and thought out but thats way too time consuming so heres a rough doodle instead rip
SO ANYWAY the idea was that one night keith cant sleep because hes too worried and miserable about shiros disappearance so he wanders out into the halls and finds pidge holed up somewhere typing away at her computer which is Normal for her since shes a night owl
at first its kinda awkward because pidge and keith arent exactly close but then pidge starts talking about shiro and how he was like a brother figure to her too and that she misses him too and knows how keith feels considering her own familys disappearance and soon theyre just sitting and talking about shiro and eventually keith asks pidge about matt and as the hours go by they start sharing dumb funny stories about their respective brothers (or surrogate brother in keiths case) and due to sleep deprivation they begin laughing loosely over every little story and tidbit through the night
the next morning the rest of the team finds keith and pidge sprawled out on the floor, leaning against each other, fast asleep
SORRY THIS GOT SO NEEDLESSLY LONG but on a completely unrelated note if you are at all interested my commissions are currently open lmao
this is what happens when I headcanon with the incomparable @ananbeth ! lol thought I’d share these because we had tons of fun with it and it’s fucking solid as hell if I do say so myself
Percy and Frank who grow up together and go surfing constantly
Percy laughs every time he watches big Frank get into this tiny car
Percy and Frank who grew up like cousins
their moms are best friends and their houses are down the street from one another
Percy making jokes and Frank laughing hysterically, his face bright red
when they meet Annabeth in the 7th grade Frank immediately KNOWS that she and Percy are gonna get together But he has to watch them both be idiots around each other for years
Frank getting demoted to the back seat of the car when they start dating and he’s like “guys….I know you’re in love but… Please”
LITTLE FRANK HELPING LITTLE PERCY WITH HOMEWORK sitting at Sally’s kitchen table, a plate of warm cookies in the middle
patient Frank who is constantly encouraging Percy and Frank never brings it up when they’re older
Percy is like "I would not have made it without you” and Frank is like “you’re crazy, that was all you man”– it means so much to Percy
also, going back to the original image: Surfer bros
getting up at 5am to get out on the waves before school then falling asleep in class later
Frank always misses a spot of sand on his leg no matter what he does
Percy’s hair is always crisp from the sand and salt
Frank after his growth spurt and he’s like “Percy why are those girls laughing at me, did I spill on my shirt again” and Percy is like “…no, I don’t know” and Annabeth is like “you guys are idiots, they’re giggling because they’re checking you out”
Frank goes red and is like “…I’ll be in the water if you need me”
Sally packs them a cooler of snacks for summer beach days. Frank always has at least 3 different SPF sunscreens with him. He wears one of those dorky tan bucket hats. Percy has a pair of old beat up vans that are his beach shoes.
blasting music with the windows down as they drive home.
bonfires on the beach.
floating on their boards out in the water during sunset, which they call “the best seats in the house”
Frank living with the Jacksons during his mom’s deployments
Sally and Percy helping him make care packages to send her
this leads us to even better territory: Bunk beds.
Percy isn’t allowed on the bottom bunk because he kicks the top mattress when he’s bored
he always pops his head down to ask Frank obscure questions late at night and Frank is like “PLEASE"
they try to build a treehouse?
It’s terrible bless them
until Sally steps in and helps them then they spend all their time there
hiding out, and playing super heroes and stuff
they sleep there one night and it’s such an ADVENTURE
It’s where Frank goes when he wants to feel brave
they both go back up there the night before they’re about to leave to go to different colleges for the first time in years. They can barely fit and they’re both wearing their college sweatshirts
Frank’s mom passes away when he’s 15, and he goes missing after the funeral
they look all over for him until Percy suddenly realizes where he is
he finds Frank in the treehouse holding the medal his mom was given
Percy scoots in and doesn’t say anything but Frank eventually looks up and he’s kinda still crying and he’s like "she would want me to be brave…right?"
And Percy is like "she would want you to be whatever you need to be to get through this"
Frank looks back down at the medal as he runs his thumbs over it and he’s like "I wanna be brave”
imagine them going off to separate colleges and keeping up a long distance friendship
Frank goes to the northwest like Oregon or something and Percy is like “I don’t understand how you traded the beach for the forest” and Frank is like “Says the guy in the middle of New York!” “Frank, it’s different”
imagine successful NY Percy who buys his mom a cabin in Montauk so she can be closer to him
Percy finally being able to provide for his momma because he recognises how much she gave to him when he was growing up
he just wants her to be able to enjoy life and not worry about things the way he did when he was growing up– wants to give her the peace of mind she always gave him
he never begrudges the childhood he had, but he wants to be able to provide for his kids and give them a childhood that he couldn’t really have
imagine them seeing each other when they fly home for break after their first semester
Percy is like “did you hear the slo mo music as we ran to each other or was it just me” and Frank is like “no I heard it too"
(Possible Annabeth being like "that’s cause I was playing it on my phone for your romantic reunion”)
She would totally video it too and caption it like, Percy gets less excited when he sees me after a long break or just Reunion 💕
she loves it– loves her boys
the first time Annabeth gets to go into the treehouse it’s such an occasion
Frank puts up fairy lights to make it fancy
it’s her 15th birthday and her and Percy have been dating for a couple of months
They have a little cupcake for her
Percy is like “you’re in the club forever now” and it’s this sweet moment cause she’s used to moving around and not having a home
Frank excuses himself after they sing happy birthday but not without blushing furiously and tripping over his feet
