The Voltron Team spend sometime on a random planet. Lance hits on this girl, who actually likes being hit on the way he does and asks to take him to dinner as a thank-you for Voltron’s protection. Her twin brother insists on joining them, because who is this cocky human hitting on his sister. Keith insists on chaperoning as well, because so far all of Lance’s attempts at interstellar dating have ended up in disaster.
The Twin Brother is hot. Like super beautiful and takes an interest in Keith. Keith likes it and the two engage in light hearted banter and teasing. Lance notices. Lance gets jealous but for the most part keeps his cool. He is trying his best to pay attention to his date but he finds himself checking out the brother and Keith a lot. Keith looks good when he smiles. Frigging Keith.
At the end of the date, the girl tries to kiss Lance and it is awkward and he is not into it and trying to watch this lingering handshake Keith and the brother have going on.
The next day, Lance is diving deep in the rivalry game again. Keith goes to Lance’s room to call him out and ask him what’s up.
Lance is all, “I’m not talking to you, Keith.”
Keith is all, “Fine. Don’t talk to me then” and turns to walk away before Lance reaches out to him.
Lance: No, stay.
They sit on Lance’s bed in silence for a long time before Lance speaks.
Lance: Keith, I think I might be gay.”
Lance: The other night on my date, I couldn’t stop looking at her brother. He made me feel things.
Keith: Oh? What sort of things?
Lance (dramatically): You, know. Gay things.
Keith contemplates this before responding: You’re not gay, Lance. Bi or Pan maybe. I’ve seen the effect girls have on you. Being attracted to one very good looking man doesn’t make you gay.
Lance: There may be others.
Lance eyes Keith from the corner of his eye.
Lance: Fine. I’m bi, pan, whatever. How do you know so much about being gay, anyways, Keith?
Keith: Lance, I’m gay. Like, super gay. It’s not a secret.
Lance makes the Pidge is a girl face then: Damn it, Keith.
Lance: You couldn’t let me have this one. I open my soul, come out to you and you tell me you are gay too? I just wanted to be the most fabulous gay man on this ship.
Keith: Being gay is not a competition! I thought we were bonding!
Coran, who has been eavesdropping outside the room, enters.
Coran: Boys, boys. I couldn’t help but overhear your conversation. Not because I was listening, because I certainly wasn’t, but Lance, I am glad to hear that you are learning about yourself, and all of us on this team, will love and support you, no matter who you choose to love. However, both of you look at me very carefully. No matter what team you play for, I will always be the most fabulous gay man on this ship.
