Chapter two of Living with Max Posted!


Living with Max Summary:

At the end of the Summer, Max is left in David’s (temporary?) care. After Max stumbles in on David darkest, best-kept secret the pair are forced to make some hard decisions.

And hard decisions are never straightforward when trauma and human emotions are involved.

A collaborative fic that was born out of a brief one shot and took a life of its own.

VERY SENSITIVE writing. PLEASE pay attention to the tags.

It's sad that there appears to be so much hate for the Autistic Keith headcanon. I am so confused right now because I thought it was such a great idea and so many autistic people said it was like them! I think you're amazing and so strong dealing with all of this right now and I want you to know I'm on your side.

Yeah, it’s a real bummer. I thought the fandom loved that headcanon until recently. 

Thank you so much! It really means a lot to have you and other nice people supporting me and other autistic people during this. This whole thing has been pretty depressing, but I keep telling myself that a lot of people do care. You’re one of the people who keeps popping up in my activity feed for this, and it always makes me feel a bit better. ❤

exactly!! if anything the vlog gave a lot of evidence for autistic hc? his explanation about being unable to connect actually really reminded me of myself. I would always blame it on that I moved around a lot and spent a lot of time growing up in countries from which i spoke the language poorly. Anyway, back to keith. I find it quite disappointing that this is coming from a fandom that actually seems to really see how important representation is.

i guess that’s why people are now resorting to “there’s an alternative, ~normal explanation for all these autistic traits he’s displaying” instead of “there’s no evidence to support that”, actually… huh. 

the most relatable part for me was when he was so hung up about the chant. “it doesn’t have to be complicated!” like, i could feel that frustration in my bones. 

meanwhile, keith blamed his inability to connect with others on being galra, and feeling “alien” is something autistic people talk about all the time, so…

yeah, this fandom is all for bi lance/shiro with ptsd/etc. but as soon as autistic keith is brought up, excitedly claiming it’s canon is a Problem and they’re going to lecture you on why that’s not the case because keith is just xyz instead!! 

like why are they so desperate to prove this HC wrong? it’s baffling.

How would Shiro react seeing Keith's vlog?

To put it in the simplest form, Shiro’s going to love the ever-living fuck out of that boy for the rest of their lives. 

No, but seriously – we clearly know how much Shiro means to Keith in the series, but it’s high time we see the full extent of how much Keith means to Shiro, which is obviously a lot from subtle cues but in his VLOG I want to hear him outright talk about how much faith he has in Keith, how much he appreciates him, how much he cares about him, how much he loves him. I have a need. A serious need.
