Modern AU with nothing special going on, no aliens, no magic space lions, nada.
Shiro works as a social worker and helps out at a private institution for kids with no parents that aren’t good fits for regular foster homes. Keith is a young kid whose parents died when he was young and he was sent to his next of kin, who are just. Awful, awful, awful people. They get a call from a concerned neighbor and it turns out the kid had been severely neglected to the point where he’s mostly nonverbal, and Shiro’s workplace takes custody of him.
Shiro was the first one on the scene and he was the one who coaxed Keith out of the house, he made sure to speak softly and tell him that he was safe and, when he figured out that Keith couldn’t or wouldn’t speak, made sure to ask yes or no questions that he could nod or shake his head to. Because he didn’t even have a change of clothes, Shiro gave Keith his jacket and let him keep it and now Keith just latches onto him instantly.
OKAY, SO A FUNNY THING HAPPENED WITH ME & @partylovingmikey15 while we were cosplaying as Cosmo & Taloupe.
It was the last 15 seconds for turf war, and we decided to try and party with each other. EXCEPT…. we both super-jumped from opposite sides of the map and ended up awkwardly passing by and I just couldn’t stop laughing XD
The stages changed afterwards and we just screamed at each other through Skype about this wonderful moment, which is where Pingueno gave me the lines to write for this quick little comic strip >v>
We both got home late from work last night, both tired and sleepy but we still managed to skype.. Keeping skype open until he has to go to work the next day, just Precious! It felt like we slept together coz every time i open my eyes, i see him sound asleep, hugging the blanket i gave him, snoring loudly.. He is just amazing.. I love him dearly:-*
