I adore angsty Keith as much as anyone ...
… but sometimes I need to remind myself that he isn’t brooding one hundred percent of the time?
He’s also capable of cracking jokes:
And being sweetly confused:
And look, he knows how to respond to a show of battle bud camaraderie:
And he’s not always cool in the face of danger:
And while I’m all about his mysterious-tortured-soul-loner vibe, boy knows how to laugh and get along with people on occasion:
Even though he and Lance get under each other’s skin often, they’ve been able to interact for a few minutes here and there without descending into arguing:
So I really need to learn to keep these things in mind when I write our beloved emo (possibly part Texan, most definitely part Galra) Red Paladin.
I mean, I say all of this, but you better believe the angst is still gonna be there. It’s a habit that I may never completely break ;D
