summary: Shiro has pretty clear intentions; Allura clearly has no idea what’s going on. Or, The 5 times Allura was completely oblivious to Shiro’s crush, and the one time she wasn’t. notes: shallura hell is reading all the fics on tumblr/ao3 3 times and still not being satisfied so you have to write your own
The original mission
objective was to liberate the small planet from a tyrannical
government–which, at first, just seemed to be a normal level of
corrupt, but after some digging they discovered Galra influences as
the driving force behind it all. Some rich, lucky power-monger had
discovered he could save his own skin but selling out his people.
Shiro kept a pretty
short list of things he hated, but sellouts definitely made it on to
Liberating such a
small planet surely wouldn’t attract too much Galra attention, and at
the least it would just be a thorn in Zarkon’s side. Personally,
Shiro would rather put a spear, or a handful of blaster bolts into
said side, but beggars can’t be choosers.
They didn’t really
go into it with a plan; at least, Shiro didn’t. The esteemed princess
of Altea, however, got a certain gleam in her eye that sent shivers
down his spine. Terrifying and powerful was a good luck on her.
(Technically, everything was a good look on her, but that was
more because Shiro tended to look at her as if she hung the stars
than anything else.)
I just don’t know what I want or how to get it, I don’t know how to feel emotionally, and I don’t know how to act. I feel like my emotions are slowly getting the best of me. This feeling sucks. I’m getting too attached.
