this is an appreciation post to the people who created the artificial gravity controls in star trek. no matter the emergency, no matter how little power the ship has, no matter how completely nonsensical it is for it to function, that thing is. not. turning. off.
We climbed up to the roof drinking whiskey in the rain
But I wouldn’t let you in, my life revolved around escape
Cause I was always such a runaway

Yeah, I’ve been betrayed, ooh
You showed me how to love like a spark in the night
And not be afraid, ooh

A drunk as shit Keith “breaking into” Shiro’s dorm room (he does have a second key okay so technically it’s not breaking in- but don’t ask him how he got his hands on it) at 3 AM on a Wednesday, because he wanted some cuddles.
