Well, I was in such a state of shock, I completely blacked out. I can't remember a thing. It wasn't until later, when I was washing the blood off my hands, I even knew they were dead.
OH MY GOD WHY ARE YOU SPREADING HATE ABOUT AN ARTIST STOP THIS MADNESS FOR GODS SAKE ALSO KEITH IS 19 AND SHIRO IS 24 THATS OFFICIAL GET OVER IT
you don’t have shiro wrong but do y’all like…..KNOW what late teens mean??? 16-18 y’all and i can pull out some sources on keith in particular being either 16-17 if you give me a bit. don’t give me that “he’s 19″ bullshit y’all know that isn’t true. also even so sh//eith STILL has a power imbalance w/ shiro being a superior officer/ teacher to keith. ALSO sh//ieth is the two lightest most conventionally attractive guys paired together so overall it wasn’t great to begin with i don’t know why you’re so desperate to defend it. get out LMAO

Despite the stories spun by Hollywood, every person had multiple soulmates. Every person was born with a phrase tattooed on their bodies. For centuries, people believed it to be the last words your soulmate (singular) would ever say to you. This inspired fear in most and lead to stories such as Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet and Emily Brontë’s Wuthering Heights.
In the last five centuries, however, global travel revealed the existence of multiple soulmates for each person. Even more interesting, telecommunications proved that each soul mark is in fact much more nuanced than simply ‘last words’. The mark is meant to indicate the moment when everything changes. Sometimes that means hardships, separation, or death. But sometimes, the words can lead to something greater. If only the soulmates know how to navigate life and each other.
Bitty didn’t know about this technicality until he got to Samwell. Until Shitty and Lardo literally run into Camilla at Winter Screw and realize all three of their marks synch up. The phrase “1 in 4, maybe more” is very appropriate considering the high percentage of soulmates that meet multiple partners at Samwell.
He tries to be happy for them as they fall into each other. He ignores the way Ransom, Holster, March and April circle around each other, avoiding the moment when they realize they’ve been in a relationship forever. He rolls his eyes when Ollie and Wicks sneak behind the docks before games to kiss their boyfriend, a Chad, for good luck. But Bitty thinks it’s sweet nonetheless.
He isn’t even jealous when Chowder breaks up a fight between Nursey and Dex saying “I love you, but this has got to stop.” Which just so happens to be Nursey’s phrase. And much later when Dex tells Chowder “you mean more to me than a stupid fight.” He’s happy for them. Especially when they meet Farmer and she ticks off every one of their phrases by the time their Frog year is over.
He doesn’t believe it’s gonna happen for him. Not at Samwell at least. His phrase could be worse.
We’re a team is branded in small font on his wrist. It’s still customary to keep your phrase hidden from the public eye, so he wore wrist guards when it’s hot out and long sleeves at every other opportunity.
Bitty thinks that’s nebulous, but distinct enough that he’ll know it when he hears it. His words don’t come for quite some time. In the interim, he falls in love with Jack whose phrase is supposedly hidden somewhere near his torso. He doesn’t think much of it when he overhears Jack and Parse fighting during the Epikegster.
You were nineteen the first time you felt this. This disbelief. This anger. Eyes stinging. Throat raw. Choking on the smoke of a thousand burning homes. You’d had the body almost a year. The training. You had scars. You’d been shot at so many times that you laughed when you found yourself staring down the barrel of a gun. But you weren’t a soldier… until that day.
