Shiro laughs, bringing Keith’s palm to his cheek.

“Oh, Keith,” Shiro’s voice liquid, filled with fondness. “You almost make me believe in miracles.”

HUFFLEPUFF: “[War] is instinctive. But the instinct can be fought. We’re human beings with the blood of a million savage years on our hands! But we can stop it. We can admit that we’re killers… but we’re not going to kill today. That’s all it takes! Knowing that we’re not going to kill – today!” –Gene L. Coon + Robert Hamner (Jim Kirk: Star Trek: A Taste Of Armageddon)
