If Lance and the Red Lion don’t bond over missing Keith, then I’m gonna…do something.
Like Lance doesn’t say anything at first (because he wants to be strong and doesn’t want bother anyone), but one time, he can /feel/ Red’s sadness and worry while they are flying.
And that’s when he realizes they feel the same.
Cue late night talks and hushed reassurances, that “it’ll be okay. He’s safe, he’ll come back to us again. One day.”
Sharing their favorites memories with him, just bonding together and helping one another cope.
I just really want Lance and Red bonding, okay?
