Okay, okay, okay, so, like, I wasn’t too fond of the new season, but consider-
Lance missing Keith so much that he starts going into Red just to kind of, like, help with the loneliness. And then he gets really daring and tries contacting Keith from Red. And, you know, he gets through, and they just start talking long distance–in private–every few “days” or so. And they get closer that way, because a little more distance between each other puts things in perspective. And suddenly Keith isn’t so annoying and Lance looks forward to talking to him, not just to making fun of him, and he admits that he thought they were just starting to get along when Keith left. And Keith is all “it’s just easier for me to push people away first, you know? I wasn’t cut out for the Black Lion, it’d happen eventually.” And Lance is, just, NO! And they get closer and closer but it’s terrible because they’re far apart and Keith wants to keep that way, but Lance misses him SO MUCH!
Also, like, trying to touch through the screen? And- and- and! I know there are lots of other romantic tropes here, but I can’t think of any more! Suggestions? Maybe I’ll write a fic.
