to counter the fuckin' roller coaster ride that pt 2 was, consider keith stimming by purring. a soft, low rumble feel/sound.
A++ good headcanon. I am so here for purring Keith.
He doesn’t know he can do it at first, cause I mean. Most people don’t go out and try to purr?
And while he was away from his friends, he didn’t really have all that much reason to purr.
Then he reunites with his friends and they get back to the castle-ship and Keith is exhausted, but happy, and god has it been a long time since he was actually, truly happy.
He knows he should probably go to bed, but he’s not ready to leave his friends just yet, and they seem more than happy to keep hanging out, so they’re all just crashed in the lounge on the couch.
Keith is flopped on his own section, changed into his casual clothes for the first time in months, his jacket wadded up under his cheek as a pillow. Lance is dramatically retelling the tale of the Search for Keith like it’s some sort of modern space opera.
(Keith stops listening after two minutes because he’d rather not punch Lance an hour after they’ve all finally reunited.)
((Besides, all you really need to hear of Lance’s rants is the tone. When it’s loud and grating he’s being dramatic and exaggerating and Shiro’s probably going to step in soon to calm him down. When it’s low and humming with energy, he wants you to ‘ooh’ and ‘ahh’ at the suspense. And when it gets that sideways lilt, like an elbow in your ribs, that’s when you’re supposed to laugh.))
Hunk and Pidge eventually just start talking over Lance, and Shiro’s sitting about a foot from Keith’s feet, smiling quietly, as big a presence as Lance without saying anything at all.
Keith starts drifting off before long, and he’s so relaxed it takes him a minute to notice that everyone else has gone silent.
“Dude,” Lance says. “Are you purring?”
He is, he realizes. A low rumble in his chest, filling him up, shivering through every bone in his body.
He smiles at Lance through slitted eyes. “You have a problem with that?”
“Nah, man, it’s just weird.”
Somehow, when Lance says that, it sounds more like, “I’m glad you’re happy.”
Keith eventually figures out how to purr consciously, and then how to purr silently, or nearly so. He can pitch the sound so low none of the others hear it unless they’re practically on top of him, but he still gets that pleasant vibration in his chest, and it’s just
10/10 would recommend
(Pidge is jealous of Keith’s awesome alien stim)
(Keith thinks there are some perks to being Galra, after all)
So yeah, I know I am going to sound jealous, NO I’M JUST PISSED.
I have this “friend” that just got married to this woman after only DATING her for maybe 5 months. Unfortunately for me, I am “friends” with him on facebook, of all fucking places, and as of Saturday he has been positing all this cheesy, make you want to go jump off of the nearest and tallest tree/building things…
Anyways back to the point I was making. I really would have liked to post this up on my facebook page and ask him if there was by any chance a reason why he “cough cough” rushed into this marriage (I may still post it, who knows. I like playing the Devils advocate), but as of now I am being nice.
Sorry for those of you who have stumbled across this post, it was just better for me to post it here than on facebook where I would have most of my hometown at my throat (like I should really fucking care what they fucking think).
Someone take photoshop away from me, because damn it I can’t help myself hahaha. Because of a combination of me having a momentarily hard time last night with finishing part 19 of Mafia Boss, as well as the fact that it’s me we’re talking about, I’ve kind of ended up making my life a bit more difficult - by making gif headers for almost all my series (both the long ones, but also the short ones). Life gets hard because this means that I have to sit through changing the header for ever. single. part of these series haha.
Okay, I’m tired and I’m about to start rambling nonsense, so shush, Sofia. Some of you, that have read the new part of Mafia Boss (or any of the part for it), may have noticed this change~ ^^ So far, these are the series I’ve had enough energy to update with the new headers (and the rest will go through the same update when I have the energy to do it):
