Okay, but Lance wants to fall in love so bad, right? Like, that is literally the thing he is always looking out for. Even in the middle of a space war, he is looking for that person to bond with and to become his best friend.
So wait until he figures out that he’s actually been falling in love with Keith this whole time and didn’t even realize it. This kid is going to blow his own goddamn mind and I am so READY!
The giver of love advice doesn’t even know he’s in love himself. A trope I never get tired of.
YA novel: this guy was the most badass guy you’ve ever seen. he could kick anybody’s ass. he was the leader of his own gang of misfits that nobody dared cross. he wore a lot of leather. he had a scar somewhere that looked really cool. he had this super deep sexy raspy voice no one could resist. he stood at a towering height of 6ft5 and was built af. everybody feared him.
Concept: Keith during his first night with the Marmora after saying goodbye to the team, staring up at the ceiling and just. feeling lonely. He doesn’t really get why– he’s been alone for years, he should be used to this by now. And he’s laying there trying to convince himself of that when suddenly the room lights up and he glances over to find his communicator (”space cellphone,” Lance had said helpfully behind Coran’s back) blinking with incoming messages. "I’m proud of you,” says Shiro. "Be safe,” says Allura. "Good luck,” says Pidge. "I miss you!!” says Hunk. "Come back soon,” says Lance. And it just really hits Keith that. Wow. For the first time in a long time, he has a home to go back to and people who miss having him there.
