and keith and karen :'(

Me: All these Klance reach posts are pretty funny but they also, quite frankly, give the writers way too much credit and only set the fandom up for further disappointment :/

You spiderman sheith au is so good! I am guessing that Shiro is Keiths man in the chair. What would happen if Shiro got in danger for helping Keith on his missions?

There are other prompts asking for a dramatic Shiro rescuing so this one will just be small scale and Shiro’s first!

[Sheith Spider-Man Homecoming AU] Part 08 (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9)

Their practice for the academic decathlon just finished and Keith and Shiro were on their way home. By the time they reached the streets, Keith abruptly stopped in his tracks.

“My spidey sense is tingling,” he whispered and slowly looked at Shiro.

“Your what?” Shiro felt like laughing at how funny that sentence was but decided to restrain himself as Keith clearly wasn’t laughing. This was serious.

“It’s a thing that warns me when there’s danger,” he explained and his eyes widened as he quickly grabbed Shiro by the chest just in time for them to avoid being crushed by a truck. 

The truck crashed into the tailor shop both boys were just standing in front from a few seconds ago. Shiro felt so disoriented but before he could collect himself, Keith was already trying to help the driver out of the truck.

“Sir, are you alright?” Keith asked in worry as he dragged the man out of danger. “What happened?”

“I-I lost control of the wheel when some asshole drove past me. I reckon it was a hijacked car too,” the driver answered, a hand on his head.

The next thing that happened, Shiro already anticipated. Keith turned to him and without saying a word, his boyfriend nodded and he nodded back in understanding. 

“I have my laptop with me,” Shiro patted his backpack. “As soon as you go online, I’ll be with you.” 

“You’re the best. Be back in a jiffy.” Keith pulled him into a hug and then he ran towards an alley to spider-up. 

Shiro walked to the nearest cafe to grab a table in a secluded corner, away from the public’s eye. He pulled out his laptop and put on his earpiece. As soon as his laptop turned on, a window of Keith’s live feed popped up.

“Hacker voice. I’m in,” Shiro said, feeling excited. They haven’t done this outside of their “headquarters” so the thrill was extremely through the roofs.

“You are such a dork!” Keith laughed as he swung from building to building. “You got the location on the bad guy, babe?”

Babe. Keith just called him “babe” and Shiro wanted to die. But he had no time for that. Right now, he had to hack into government sites to get a live feed on the police chase. 

“Altea Street, third block,” Shiro informed. “He’s going at 120 kilometers per hour. Three police cars on his tail and they are not happy campers.”

“Got it!” 

The police were slower compared to how fast Keith was. The view from Keith’s eyes was exhilarating. To think he get to see it too was mind blowing. It was beautiful and Shiro couldn’t honestly blame Keith for loving being in the red and blue suit considering he get to do all of these things. Sometimes Shiro wish he could too but sadly, the spider that bit his boyfriend was dead. They would’ve been such a great Spider couple. 

Shiro chuckled but he was pulled out of his fantasy world when suddenly the screen turned black. He panicked as he could no longer hear Keith either. The last thing Shiro saw was Keith being on top of the hijacked car while shouting “Hey, Mr. Criminal! Nice car!”

“Keith? Keith?!” He called out a little louder. “Keith, are you there?!”

No response. 

“Shit,” he cursed as he closed his laptop and placed it in his bag. He quickly ran out of the cafe and hailed a taxi to Keith’s last location. He tried calling Keith’s number that was connected to the suit but no answer. 

As soon as he got out of the car, he looked around and Keith was nowhere in sight. He asked the people around if they’ve seen Spider-Man at all. Only one kid answered him, pointing towards the bridge. 

He ran as fast as his legs could carry him. He saw Keith’s lifeless body by the river and his eyes widened in fear. “No, no, no. no.” The adrenaline rush was getting into him as he quickly climbed up the bridge. “Keith! Hang in there!”

“Hey, you!” Someone shouted and if Shiro had to look back right at this moment, this was the one of the biggest mistakes of his life.

Out of reflex, he turned his head towards the voice. Everything happened too fast. The next thing he knew, a bullet was shot towards him. Someone was screaming “No!” Then he saw Keith aiming his webshooter towards his chest, the web pushing him out of the way just in time for the bullet to graze the bridge of his nose. 

Shiro stumbled backwards, losing his balance. However, the guy who shot him was already walking forward, his gun still aimed at him.

“How dare you touch him!” Someone shouted and Shiro turned his head to see Keith climbing up the bridge, looking like he was ready to commit murder. The eyes on Keith’s Spider-Man mask turned completely black with a tiny red dot in the middle on each side.

Oh god. Shiro knew what that meant. 

The Instant Kill Mode.

fanamc  asked:

Omg! I'm really sorry but thanks to you I can't get enough of Sheith-Spider-Man au!! Hahaha XD Can I have their first kiss??? Pleaaaseee 😅

Dude, it’s okay. I’m all about the Sheith Spider-Man au I was literally thinking about it while I was riding the bus to work looool 

[Sheith Spider-Man Homecoming AU] Part 3 (1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9)

Weeks passed by and nothing much really changed with Keith and Shiro’s relationship except they hold hands now in secret, which was exciting every time for them because they were both new to the whole boyfriends thing. So Keith was glad they were both noobs. 

They were having their academic decathlon team practice when Keith received a text message from Thace:

Hey, kid. Kolivan wants you at the Avengers HQ ASAP. I’m waiting outside your school gate.

Keith’s eyes widened. He looked around and Allura was discussing strategies and such and the rest of the team were listening intently. He looked to his right and Shiro’s attention was on Allura as well.

Thace would kill him if he didn’t get out now—well, okay he wouldn’t, but still. So he leaned in to Shiro to whisper, “Dude, I need to leave. Thace is outside waiting for me. Avengers thing.”

Shiro leaned closer and turned his head that their noses bumped. “Oh, okay. Good luck. I’ll cover you, man. Be careful, okay?” 

His Spider Sense was probably offline because Keith didn’t feel the “danger” when Shiro closed the gap between them and gave him a soft peck on the lips. His eyeballs felt like popping out and Shiro even had the nerve to be shocked at what he did when he leaned away quickly. 

It was their first kiss.

They just stared at each other, a silent “Holy shit” screaming between them.

“What the hell?” Pidge broke their awkward staring. 

By the time both boys turned their head towards their fellow member, the rest of the team was staring at them in shock. Lance had his mouth open so wide a fly could literally fly in and he wouldn’t even notice. Hunk looked like he was on the verge of squealing or crying, probably both. Pidge had her eyebrows raised in confusion and Allura… damn Allura dropped her book and gaped at them, her eyes blinking rapidly as if not believing what she just saw.

“Uh… um, uh,” Keith fished mouthed. “We’re uh, a-a… uh, we’re a thing.” he nodded awkwardly as he turned to Shiro. “We’re a thing now I guess, yeah?”

Shiro nodded quickly. “Yeah, l-like living things. Ha ha. G-get it?” 

At the same time Keith said, “Like Thing 1 and Thing 2. That kind of thing.″

The second Keith heard what his boyfriend just said, he gave him a look that clearly said Really? Living things? What the fuck, Shiro?

Before things got more awkward, Keith stood up to excuse himself to Mr. Coran and Allura. 

“Keith, wait!” Shiro called out as he ran after him.

As Keith turned around, Shiro was already giving him the kicked puppy dog look and he was always weak for Shiro’s kicked puppy dog look. It was unfair.

“I’m sorry for what I did there. I.. I kinda panicked. And you were so close I didn’t know what got into me and—.”

Keith held his hand up in the air. “It’s okay, Shiro. It’s no big deal.”

“It was our first kiss,” Shiro whispered. “So it kinda is a big deal.”

“Dammit, you’re right,” he clicked his tongue and breathed out heavily, as if releasing the stress he was bottling up. “What a huge step this is for us.”

“Monumental even,” Shiro smiled fondly.

A snort escape from Keith’s mouth before he could even stop it. “We even skipped the cheek kisses and you kinda just went straight for the gold.”

Shiro chuckled. “We’ll talk about it later. You should go now or Thace will decapitate you and I won’t have anything to kiss anymore.”

“I knew you were only keeping me for my lips,” Keith joked and then he felt his phone buzzing again. “Okay, I gotta go now.”

Shiro nodded and he pulled Keith in for a hug. “Be careful, okay? Text me when you’re at the Avengers HQ. Make Karen call me when you’re—”

“Okay, Mom,” Keith rolled his eyes.

“I worry, okay? It’s not everyday I get to date Spider-Man,” Shiro huffed. 

“You’re such a lucky dude, aren’t ya?” Keith smirked. “Getting to have all of…” he gestured to himself, “…this to yourself for hugs.”

“For hugs,” Shiro repeated while laughing. “Now go or Thace will have my head too and we can’t have that. We have a decathlon to win and I need my brain for that.”

“Okay,” Keith nodded as he fixed his bag strap. “Bye!” He quickly pulled Shiro to give him a peck on the lips. His boyfriend didn’t even get to say anything because he ran towards the school’s front door but not before he shouted, “That was our second kiss!” 

The smile plastered on Shiro’s face was so worth it.

“You know they’re going to ask me questions once I step back in that room! Especially Pidge!” Shiro shouted.

Keith’s laugh echoed through the halls. “I know!! Give them hell! Love you!”

“also consider soulmate au w first words tattoo’d on the wrist, lance is mute/deaf/doesn’t speak for whatever reason, keith is a grumpy soulmate who doesnt have a tattoo” - @transmothmun

When Karen was five years old, she began kindergarten. With it began the life long torment of seeing others around her with words on their wrists. Everyday, couples would get together. In class, on the playground, in the hallway. Even when she went out to eat with her parents people would bump into each other and bam! Soulmates.

Karen didn’t have anything on her wrist, save for a glittery hairband to tie back her dark hair. Her parents always just said she was special when she asked about not having a tattoo. She was tired of being special.
When Lance was five, his father started hitting his siblings. One older sister, two younger brothers, one younger sister. He didn’t understand why yet, but he couldn’t just let the others be abused, so Lance started taking all the hits.

In pretty cursive on his skinny wrist, Lance had the words, “Dude, what’s wrong?” Every day, he would look at it and cry. He waits (increasingly more impatient) for the day that some one will ask him what’s wrong.
Karen is eight when he becomes Keith. His parents are supportive, but they lack money. They start saving up for when Keith is older.

The same year, Keith learns he is adopted. His parents come home with thirteen year old Takashi who has a scar across his face and a crappy prosthetic arm, Keith tells them to use the saved money to get him a good arm. Keith and Takashi quickly become best friends.

Every night when Keith is in bed, he can hear Takashi down the hall screaming. He’s started not sleeping so that he can sneak into Takashi’s room and calm him down.
Lance is eight when he stops talking. His father tells him to shut up and, he just, stops.

The same year, his Mama dies. “A heart attack. Very strange for her age,” the doctors say. With Mama gone, Lance’s father doesn’t bother to feed them. So Lance makes meals for his siblings on what’s left as long as he can.

When the food runs out, Lance does what he can to make a little money. Mostly mowing lawns for neighbors. They all think it’s sweet that such a young boy is already trying to get a job. They don’t realize that if he doesn’t, his family won’t be able to eat.
When Keith is thirteen, Takashi leaves to go to college. They both cry. Keith can’t imagine a life without Takashi there everyday: teasing him and supporting him through the dysphoria. Takashi doesn’t know how he’s going to survive the nights and the flashbacks without his little brother.
When Lance is thirteen, he’s propositioned by the man next door. He can’t say no, and he doesn’t want to. Five hundred dollars is enough to feed his family for at least if he spreads it out.
Keith is sixteen when he gets the call that Takashi is dead. He’s so confused, he talked to him just the day before. “Too many pain meds, combined with alcohol. He was dead before we even got there.”

He couldn’t even cry this time Takashi left him, he was too numb.

The same year he starts sleeping around with older guys. It’s strange how many guys want to fuck a guy with a pussy. Keith doesn’t care what they say, what they do. It makes the pain go away for a little while, and that’s good enough for him.
Lance is sixteen when his sister gets married. He’s so proud. Not because he approves of his sister getting married right out of high school, but because she’s getting out of this house. “One less mouth to feed,” his father says.

He’s not the one who feeds them. Lance is. He doesn’t have to deal with the pain. Lance does. This time, Lance doesn’t get punched. His father does.

The same year, Lance gets separated from his siblings. His father is finally tired of dealing with them and calls social services. He’s gone before they get there.
Keith is eighteen when he is at a bar and sees a pretty boy sitting alone. Tan with long legs, the boy is exactly Keith’s type.

He’s walking over when he realizes the boy is crying. “Dude, what’s wrong?”
Lance is eighteen when he goes out for a drink, flashes a fake ID at the door, and sits down by himself at the bar. As he drinks, it all crashes down on him; and he starts crying.

He hears the words “dude, what’s wrong?” and looks up into beautiful, purple eyes.

Imagine a future moment in your life where all your dreams come true, you know? It’s the greatest moment of your life and you get to experience it with one person. Who’s standing next to you?

ainiyuku  asked:

Today my friend treated me to another showing of Spiderman Homecoming after work :D One of my favorite parts of the movie is Peter's interactions with Karen. I was wondering, has Keith ever had any talks with his suit lady about Shiro in your Sheith Homecoming AU?

Sheith Spider-Man Homecoming AU

“S-should I tell Shiro that I’m Spider-Man?” Keith asked Karen—the suit’s AI—as he sat on top of a moving train during his after school patrol.

“Who’s Shiro?” Karen asked.

“Who’s Shiro?” Keith snorted fondly. “He’s… he’s…,” he stammered as he felt his cheeks heat up. “…he’s amazing. He’s my best friend. And recently he’s been talking about his huge crush on Spider-Man and honestly?” He puffed his cheeks in annoyance and added, “It’s making me jealous.”

“But you’re Spider-Man, Keith,” Karen pointed out.

“I know!” he threw both of his hands up in the air. “But he doesn’t know that! For some reason I feel like this person is taking my best friend away.”

“You do know Shiro’s crushing on you in this sense, right?” Karen chuckled. Did AI’s even chuckle? Was that even possible? Because Karen just did.

“I can’t believe I’m jealous… of myself,” Keith frowned.

“Do you like Shiro?”

“Of course, I do! Since when we were kids actually,” Keith admitted, his shoulders sagging down feeling a little lame of his lame-ass crush.

“You should tell Shiro you’re Spider-Man then,” Karen said with finality.

“I can’t just do that!” Keith jumped up to stand on top of the moving train. “He’s probably expecting someone like… like Iron Man! Or I don’t know, Black Widow!” He gestured his hand to the side aimlessly. “I don’t think I’ll be able to handle the look of disappointment when he finds out it’s just me under the mask.”

“If it was me, I wouldn’t be disappointed at all.”

Warmth spread across Keith’s chest upon hearing his AI’s words. “Thanks, Karen. It’s kinda nice to have someone to talk to.”

Their sweet moment was disrupted when Shiro’s photo flashes in front of his screen.

“Incoming call from Takashi Shirogane,” Karen announced.

“Keith?” Shiro’s face occupied the whole screen and he seemed to be in the auditorium where they usually practiced for the academic decathlon. He squinted his face as he leaned in and gasped, “Are you on top of a train?! A MOVING TRAIN?!!!”

“What?! No, I’m not—” Shiro couldn’t possibly have known. He had no video feed unlike his best friend.


“I’m fine, Shiro!!” Keith cut him off sounding so tired. “I’m fine!”

“You little minx!” Shiro pointed at him. “You’re missing practice again! One day I’m going to run out of excuses for you.”

“What was it this time?” Keith smirked.

“Dysmenorrhea,” Shiro flatly said.

Keith barked out a laugh. “I’d be surprised if someone actually believed you.”

Shiro smiled fondly at him. “Lance seemed to buy it. The others, not so much.”

“Obviously,” Keith rolled his eyes.

“This is the perfect time for you to tell Shiro how you feel,” Karen encouraged.

“Karen, now isn’t the time!” Keith squeaked out at the sudden comment.

“Karen?” Shiro asked, alarm visible in his voice. “Who’s Karen?!”

The whole three way conversation was just not a good idea. “I… gotta go now, man. See you later at home! Bye!”

As soon as Shiro’s call window disappeared, Keith let out a heavy sigh and placed a hand on his chest.

“Why didn’t you tell Shiro?” Karen asked.

“I just can’t, okay? Just stop it, Karen,” Keith gritted his teeth and he shoot his webs towards a light post. “Shiro can’t know. I don’t want to drag him into this messy world I’m in.”

“He’s your best friend. I’m sure he’ll be supportive.”

“That’s the problem. He will be.”
