Is very expressive and the first to break out and start yelling. "You know full well I don't have that colour Carter!"
Keeps track of who has what cards mentally, and fumes silently if they are brought down by pure luck. "No, I had no idea that you were out of red, I swear!"
Strategises and has a hypothetical plan, but tends to abandon it halfway through and play as things happen. "What? No, that's not what was supposed to happen. How could you!?"
That one nice person that gives people a break once or twice a game, but they will want to play again and again until they win. "I'm not going to be that merciful next time, Jason. You're lucky I like you."
shiro was an avid couponer pre-kerberos and used to just give keith sandwich bags full of coupons to use “it’s a 7 boxes for three dollars special on hamburger helper” “shiro i hate hamburger helper”
keith is constantly constantly turning the light off when he leaves a room even though shiro is still in there
keith and shiro have lots of inside jokes because they knew each other pre-voltron
they have a secret handshake but it’s really embarrassing and keith hates doing it - “you were stranded on an alien ship for a year how do you even remember this”
the only person allowed to touch keith’s hair is shiro when he does his patented dad hair ruffle™
shiro frequently and very loudly expresses his disapproval of keith living in a desert shack alone for a year- “you know because if you live in the desert by yourself likesomeone i knowyou might get stung by a scorpion and dielike an asshole ” “just say my name shiro everyone knows you’re talking about me”
alien: insults shiro - keith: say that again you fucking punk i’ll rip your intestines out so what if you’re 9 feet tall and have laser eyes - shiro: carrying keith away while keith continues to talk shit
shiro feels really shitty a lot of the time but he’s always trying to keep it together, keith knows better so he reminds shiro to get some rest and to eat and stuff
shiro: i didn’t raise you to be this petty keith: actually you did
keith is constantly making jokes about not having a family and being an orphan because he Doesn’t Care but he lives for shiro’s scandalized expression
when shiro is really mad he calls keith by his first and last name and it instills fear into keith’s very bones
keith: roasts someone out of the blue shiro: i apologize on behalf of my son
keith is naturally a loner so the other paladins have fun a lot without him and shiro is always trying to get him to join them because he’s a really nice kid and he wants to see him be happy with friends
shiro is the only person who 100% knows about keith being autistic and he checks in with him to make sure he’s not overstimulated or on the verge of a meltdown/shutdown
shiro has blackmail on keith for embarrassing things he’s done
one of the embarrassing things is crying at the lorax movie
this is his secret weapon but keith never gives him a reason to use it
shiro goes out and yells at the others if they’re being too loud and he notices keith getting agitated
shiro tried to do that thing with keith where you put cucumbers on your eyes to decrease puffiness but keith just. ate the cucumber slices.
*a really stressful day on the ship* keith: in a bad mood shiro: hands keith a snickers shiro: you’re not you when you’re hungry
sometimes when shiro is having a really bad day keith will hug him and he’s really bad at it it’s like having a suitcase placed on your back and it cheers shiro up because he knows keith doesn’t like hugging people or being Soft but he’s trying to make him feel better and shiro appreciates that
shiro: hey i saw you smile at lance earlier and- keith: not. another. word.
sometimes keith falls asleep on the couch and shiro picks him up and brings him to his bed and tucks him in
shiro keeps trying to teach keith japanese and keith is like “for the last time no i have enough trouble with english” bonus: keith eventually picks up on a few phrases and says them without warning and it makes shiro So Happy
when someone says something ridiculous they give each other the Are You Fucking Serious stare
“you’re not my dad!” *dramatic gasp* “why did you all do that he’s literally not my dad.”
they play checkers a lot
keith: shiro i know bigfoot is real i know it shiro: i know buddy
shiro, putting a hand on each of keith’s shoulders: calm
shiro: tells a joke keith: haha oh shiro you’re so funny someone else: tells the same joke keith: that was the worst joke i’ve ever heard
shiro tries to tell the group jokes and keith always ruins it because he calls out the punchline before anyone else has a chance because he’s heard him tell those jokes so many times
keith is constantly revealing minorly embarrassing things about shiro to the others - ”did you guys know shiro loves the song “never gonna give you up” - ”one time shiro bought ten pairs of crocs” - ”one time shiro literally slipped on a banana peel” - ”shiro knows every word of the hannah montana pilot”
keith loves cats and back at the garrison shiro finds keith with like. 9 cats one day bc apparently they’re all his Children and he feeds them secretly and keith is like :0 bc he’s petting like all of the cats at once and shiro has Discovered him and they’re named things like mocha and tetris
every time keith backtalks shiro shiro goes “i can’t believe you’re doing this to the guy who brought you to see three days grace four times”
keith: kicks an alien’s ass shiro internally: they grow up so fast
they argue a lot because shiro was raised to not wear shoes in the house and keith just. sleeps with his shoes on like a barbarian
shiro firmly believes hotdogs are sandwiches and it makes keith so mad one time shiro said that and he just got in his lion and left
Green: You are irrationally angry 365 days a year. Blue: Well, that’s just your personal opinion because I don’t have anger issues. Do you guys think I have anger issues? Vio: Well, I wouldn’t really call it an issue. An issue is something you can fix.
