1 - Barry is the artist. He works at superspeed in all sorts of new mediums; he even records his art-creation-process as performative art. He doesn’t care that other speedsters think he’s wasting his gifts, but he’s starting to run low on inspiration. At least until two thieves break into his workspace.
2 - Len is unable to resist making a pun when he sees one of the pictures. Several puns. In a row. That’s what gets them caught. Mick knew it would happen one day.
3 - Barry is totally able to defeat the non-meta thieves, but something about the way they stand in the moonlight, the way they smile at each other, the way they finish each other’s sentences - it speaks of the sort of intimacy and affection, unconditional love, that he’s always craved but has never been able to recreate in his art. And when he steps forward, that changes in an instant to a barely leashed rage, intimidation, protectiveness - he suddenly wants to capture every last emotion they have. (only a little bit because that stupid art critic Bivolo said that Barry’s works were technically beautiful but lacked emotion)
4 - Len and Mick were not expecting to be propositioned during a heist. This is because it’s not a proposition, even though Barry does ask them to get naked at one point. They’re increasingly surprised that it’s not a proposition, honestly.
5 - Barry could watch Len and Mick doing their Len-and-Mick thing forever.
6 - His art series based on them is widely agreed to be his best ever. Iris, his agent, is overjoyed and practically blackmails someone at gunpoint to ensure that Len and Mick get their pardons so that they can keep working with Barry. Barry’s pretty sure she’s joking about the blackmail and the gunpoint. Pretty sure. Not 100% sure.
think they’re the power couple of the galaxy and everyone who meets them does too at first but it takes about 5 minutes to realize that nooo they’re just 2 smitten losers in love
legitimately finish each other’s sentences and do that weird thing
couples do where they have entire freaking conversations with facial
sometimes lance gets very quiet and sad when he’s thinking about his family and keith tries giving him some space for a while ‘cause he doesn’t know what to do to make lance feel better and it doesn’t feel like he can do enough to ease the pain. he tries though: he brings by lance’s favourite food (the goo equivalents of it at least) and as many sweets as he can find in the castle and purposefully messes up cheesy pick up lines and puns because it always makes lance laugh
they head to the training deck to spar when one or both of them can’t sleep but they always end up either sitting on the floor and having long conversations or getting into some silly competition that usually ends with several minor damages to the ship
concentrating during battles becomes harder for them though. like their attention is always at least partially focused on keeping the other safe and separating them during missions is pretty much useless at this point, ‘cause they have each other’s back 24/7 and are attuned to the other’s movements at all times
they’re still a Good team though ofc. they work best when together
if one of them comes from a mission even a little beat up, the other just. freaks tf out. lance just loses his shit and won’t stop checking on keith and asking if anything hurts for days. and keith is immediately reminded of that fight with sendak and how wrecked lance was after it and his heart just fills with intense fear at the mere thought of lance in pain
they don’t really talk after days like that: they just hold each other for a very long time and kiss and kiss and then lance flexes his arms and wiggles his eyebrows exaggeratedly to make keith smile and shove at him playfully & they both feel much better afterwards
