Sheith prompt after Keith finds Shiro (from the first episode of the show)
There should be a difference – in the
air, in the shadows of his shack, in the damn electromagnetic field of the entire world – but it’s all self-contained.
Shiro’s back. That single thought tumbles around in Keith’s head, disbelief
warring with overwhelming joy; jarring uncertainty tussling with itchy relief. The
numbness Keith has grown accustomed to over the last year, the quiet lull of
his heart and the scratchy hum of his breathing, has been overtaken by static.
His skin tingles, as though tiny pins and needles poke at him restlessly. He
rubs his palms over his thighs, freezing when Shiro shifts on the couch.
Everything returns to stillness. Keith licks his lips.
He scoots forward, enough that his knees
disappear under the couch and his stomach nearly touches the thin cushions. Shiro’s face remains blank, quiet in a drug induced sleep, and Keith
drinks his fill. The scar is new. Hair too. The skin and the muscles and the
lines around Shiro’s mouth; the darkness bubbling beneath his eyes and the
slight broken jaggedness of Shiro’s nose. All minute differences. Underneath,
it’s still Shiro. Keith clenches his fingers around his knees, sucks in a quick
breath and holds it. He dares not blink. Shiro exhales and Keith follows.
He mimics the rhythm of Shiro’s
breathing, drops his chin to the couch to continue his vigil. Somewhere behind
him, the trio that had intercepted the rescue mission sleep. In front of him is
all that matters. Shiro’s lashes swoop low over his cheekbones. The pinpricking
When the first edges of pink begin to
lighten the world, Shiro stirs. Keith straightens, his entire body tingling,
his throat scratchy, his eyes dry. He hadn’t blinked. Shiro groans, gaze
darting up to Keith’s face, and for a single moment there is no recognition.
Keith stills. Shiro squeezes his eyes closed before opening them once more,
gaze sticking on Keith’s. His smile kicks Keith’s heart into high gear.
“Yes, nana,” replied Teddy sleepily as he yawned. It was a warm summer morning and he wasn’t used to waking up this early during summer.
“You’ve got mail,” said Andromeda with a grin on her face. “Want to open it?”
“I don’t know,” she said with her eyebrow raised. “You are eleven after all.”
Teddy jumped from his bed and ran to where Andy was standing with a letter in her hand, no sign of his exhaustion from mere minutes ago. He didn’t wait for her to stretch out the letter, he snatched from her, his eyes filled with wonder.
He turned the letter around and saw the crimson wax seal stamp with the Hogwarts emblem on it. He tore it carefully, afraid of hurting whatever was inside. He pulled out the letter and dropped the envelope on the floor.
Dear Mr. Lupin,
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Please find enclosed a list of all necessary books and equipment.Term begins on 1 September. We await your owl by no later than 31 July.
Teddy’s eyes grew twice the size and he looked up at his grandmother with such glee that Andromeda couldn’t help but get tears in her eyes.
“I wonder which house I’m going to be in,” he said as he read the letter once more. “I hope I’m in Gryffindor like my dad.”
“Well,” laughed Andy. “Your mum was a Hufflepuff and there’s nothing wrong with other houses, you know.”
“You were a Slytherin, right?”
“I sure was.”
“He was a Hufflepuff, too,” she replied as her eyes drifted off remembering the first time she saw Ted Tonks in 4th year with his yellow and purple scarf around his neck laughing at a joke one of his friends had told. “And you know Aunt Luna is a Ravenclaw.”
“I know but I’d rather be in Gryffindor or Hufflepuff,” he said with a sad face. “You know, like my parents.”
“The Sorting Hat is an incredible object dear,” said Andy with a soft smile. “I’m sure it will put you in the best house for you. So… pancakes for breakfast?”
“Yes!” exclaimed Teddy and he went back in his room to put his letter on his desk as his grandmother left for the kitchen. He then ran down the stairs to the kitchen hoping she was making the pancakes with magic. He wasn’t disappointed to find plates and eggs flying around the kitchen once he entered.
They spent their breakfast talking about Hogwarts and the houses. Andy explained how the school wasn’t the way it used to be anymore. How Slytherin was such a mess when she went to school but slowly got their reputation back. Teddy had always been interested in the Wizarding World but recently his curiosity over Hogwarts had been overwhelming which required Andy to tell the same stories over and over again but she wasn’t complaining. The way Teddy’s eyes shined with happiness was worth it.
“Nana,” began Teddy excitedly. “We should let Harry know that I got the letter!”
“Ah, you’re right.”
With that Andy summoned some parchment and a quill and wrote to Harry about Teddy’s letter. In five minutes, their owl had left the house to go to Godric’s Hollow.
“Now, I have something to show you,” said Andy as she sat down on their sofa in the living room and Teddy climbed next to her as he looked up at her expectedly. She was holding a very thick photo album in her hand. “Your grandpa liked taking pictures the muggle way.”
Teddy smiled and got comfortable next to his nana, he knew this was going to take some time but it was his favourite thing to do with Andy, looking at the old pictures of his mother.
“This album is from the day she got her letter and onwards,” she explained as she slid her fingers softly over the picture of her daughter. “Back when she still used black hair.”
“She looks like you when she has black hair,” pointed out Teddy looking longingly at her mother at the age of eleven. She was smiling at the letter she was holding in her hand. Teddy had seen many pictures of his mum with different hair colours but never with black.
“I always thought she looked more like Ted,” she said smiling at the memory of her daughter and husband. “You look like them a lot as well.”
“You think so?”
“I know so,” she answered as she tapped on Teddy’s nose softly making the little boy giggle. “You are more like her than you can imagine and I’m not even talking about the metamorphmagus abilities you have.”
“This is from before we went to the King’s Cross to send her off,” sighed Andy. “We tried talking her out of it but she wasn’t having it. So she went to school with half purple and half yellow hair.”
Teddy was laughing at the picture and thinking about doing the same thing in his second year, it didn’t matter which house he was in.
“I’m going to do it, too,” he said finally after he stopped laughing and Andy rolled her eyes.
“Of course you are,” she teased. “Like mother like son, right?”
They didn’t talk for a while after that and kept looking at the pictures. They weren’t moving like regular pictures did but Teddy appreciated them still. Andy explained when the pictures were from every now and then but other than that both of them were lost in their thoughts. It was such a heavy burden for a eleven year old Andy thought but she showed the pictures she had. She thought Teddy deserved to know who his parents were and Andy was one of the few people who can show him. She wasn’t going to deny him that.
“Her face stays the same all the time though,” said Teddy.
“I loved her for that,” replied Andy with a small laugh. “Her eyes and her hair changed all the time. She did it unintentionally when she was a baby so even I don’t know what colour her eyes are but she never changed the way she looked permanently even though she could.”
“I would never do that either,” said Teddy proudly. “Do you know what colour my eyes were?”
“No dear,” admitted Andy. “The moment you looked into your dad’s eyes, they turned amber and changed every time someone you liked held you.”
“Oh,” mumbled Teddy. “I like amber though.”
“I like amber, too,” she agreed smiling warmly at Teddy. “When you have my pale grey eyes you look so much like your Uncle Sirius, like you do right now.”
Andromeda got lost in the memory of his cousin and how much he would have loved Teddy. Teddy looked like Sirius but was more like Regulus on the inside and the memory of the younger Black boy turned Andy’s stomach upside down. Even since she found out what he did, she couldn’t stop thinking about how she didn’t do enough to save him or how Sirius died not knowing what his little brother did. Andy shook his head in an attempt to get rid of these thoughts in her head.
They were slowly coming to the end of the album. As she was looking at all the pictures of her daughter with her friends and family, she saw a drop of water fall down on the album. She lifted her head up to Teddy and gasped unwillingly as her eyes filled up with tears.
“Teddy,” she whispered softly. “You don’t have to try to hold it in when you are with me, you don’t ever have to do that.”
“I know dear,” she confessed. “I know photographs aren’t enough. I know it will never be enough and I’m sorry.”
“I just wish I could show them my letter,” said Teddy. “I wish she could share my excitement with me and tell me I will be a Hufflepuff no matter what Dad says.”
Teddy looked guilty for some reason but Andy thought she would let him do the talking, she never tried to make him feel better when he was crying because she never knew what to say.
“I love you, nana,” he continued through his hiccups. “I love you so much but I miss them, too.”
“Never think I will replace them Teddy, not Harry not me. We will never try to.”
“I’m so lucky to have you but I just wish I had them as well,” sobbed Teddy, his head on his grandmother’s chest as she stroked his pick hair softly.
“Me, too, Teddy,” sighed Andromeda. “All of us do.”
“I came as soon as I saw the–” began Harry but stopped cold in his tracks. “Teddy your hair…”
“What?” said Teddy before he ran to the mirror. He had bubblegum pink hair that looked fluorescent with his pale skin. “I didn’t– I didn’t do it on purpose.”
“You look so much like her,” babbled Harry as he looked at his godson with so much wonder in his eyes. “It suits you Teddy.”
“I-I can’t look in the mirror like this everyday,” he said as he pressed his palms on his eyes. “I need to change it, it’s like seeing her. I can’t do that.”
He closed his eyes and focused on changing his hair to whatever colour, he didn’t care he just wanted it to change. When he opened his eyes he had bright blue hair and he thought it was a good tribute to his mother without giving him so much pain.
“I think this is better,” he smiled a little after he saw the concern in his godfather and nana’s eyes.
“Yes it is,” replied Andy as he hugged him tightly. “You are such a strong boy Teddy, I don’t know where the Sorting Hat will place but I feel like he’s going to have a hard time.”
“I think purple would look amazing on you,” grinned Harry before he kneeled down to give Teddy a hug. “However, any house would be lucky to have you.”
“Thanks Harry,” he mumbled.
“Now, I want to see your letter, can you go and get it for me?” he asked and Teddy’s eyes lit up instantly.
“Of course,” he replied before running off to his room.
Harry took the time to bring some water for Andromeda and sit down on the couch with her.
“Are you okay, Andy?”
“It hurts me to see how much pain he goes through every time we do something like this,” she explained. “But he wants to do it, I don’t know what to do. Maybe I shouldn’t do this for a while.”
“No Andy,” objected Harry softly. “I think it’s a part of the healing process. I would have given anything to know more about my parents even if it gave me pain.”
“You’re right,” said Andy wiping away the tears from her eyes just as Teddy ran into the room and jumped on Harry’s lap with the letter. Harry read the letter intently and gave it back to Teddy.
“So I was wondering if I could come to the Diagon Alley with you guys when you go. We can visit Uncle George and eat ice cream,” offered Harry to a grinning Teddy. Teddy lifted his eyes up to his grandmother to ask for approval.
“Well of course you could Harry,” said Andy before smiling warmly at the both of them.
“We can even look at brooms,” Harry whispered to Teddy and he giggled in response.
“No,” came the voice of Andy from the kitchen and Harry winked at Teddy making him go into a giggling fit and the sound of it made Andy feel better in a matter of seconds.
It’s hard to even think about it today,“ says Andy Karl of the full tear of his ACL that he suffered during the second act of a preview performance on April 14, just 72 hours before opening night. […] “I had never felt any loss like that in my life. I had three days before we were opening, I had just won the Olivier [in recognition of his work during the show’s triumphant run at London’s Old Vic before it headed stateside], I heard about good reviews, people were slamming us with such love for the show, my producers were happy, everybody was happy — and just before the show ends, I go down so hard and I realize I’ve lost everything. All gone.” At this point, Karl […] chokes up. “That’s what I was hurt about most,” he explains. “The pain really didn’t affect me."
The curtain came down and, Karl recalls, "I just laid on the floor, sobbing in front of the crew and the cast and the production team, because I had lost it all, right at the pinnacle, with a show that was gonna do better than anything I had been involved with before.” But, says the man whose Broadway breakthrough was 2014’s musical version of Rocky, just 15 minutes later he resolved not to stay down, but to get back up and fight. “I told the EMT guys, ‘Here, I’ll sign that, go away, I don’t want you guys. I’m gonna limp out on stage and I’m gonna do this last number for this audience.’ And I sang the song with a cane in one hand.
