Listen I don’t care what the Boruto manga says Naruto is everyones dad and he’s super invested. Shows up to all the academy PTA meetings. Sits in the front row to cheer on Inojin at the spelling bee. Has tea parties with Himawari and her stuffed animals. Hosts Sarada’s favorite book club every thursday night. Oh Shikadai fucked up? Shikamaru, Temari, and Naruto are very disappointed.
Juan and I met on Tinder (I know what you’re thinking, do not be judgy about it). I saw his profile and I he seemed adventurous and funny, he had a quote from The Office and I love that show, it was: “Bears, beets, Battlestar Galactica”… That phrase made me swipe right.
tfw Kageyama can’t cook to save his life but he loves baking??!
So Hinata goes over to Kags’ house for a study date and he just has a tray of these tiny cakes on his desk. He eats one and gasps, “Ooh your mom makes really good cakes!!” And Kageyama casually replies, “I made them.” Hinata is shocked (and impressed) but also thinks it’s so cute! that he bakes when he’s stressed.
Sometimes he’s not even aware of it like once Hinata found Kags in the kitchen stirring batter with one hand while trying to study his notes. And when he asked what he was making Kageyama just said, “What? I’m not making anything- oh.”
Yellow took them back to the Garrison, only this time, the team could only see past Lance and Hunk. Hunk had his head in his hands, books and papers scattered around him. “Lance, I can’t do it. I’m gonna fail this test, I’ll be kicked out of the Garrison, never become an engineer, and at this rate, I’ll probably die alone.” Lance got up from his bed, and put down the book he was reading. He walked toward Hunk and placed a hand on his shoulder. “Hunk, buddy, it’ll be okay. You’re like the smartest person I know, and you’re gonna nail this test. And die alone? Please! Who could resist that pretty face?” Lance wiggled his eyebrows. “You just need to take a break. Let’s go sneak into the kitchen and get some snacks.” Hunk irritatedly huffed. “Lance, no. I gotta study. This is serious, if I don’t study I’ll fail.” “No you won’t. You’ve been studying for hours, you really should take a break.” “I said no.” “Come on, we don’t even have to go to the kitchen! We can go to the roof, stare at the stars.” “For the last time, no!” “Buddy, I’m really concerned about you, it’s literally been hours! Just a small break, at least thirty minutes. You should really take a nap and-” Hunk turned around, face flushed red with anger. “LANCE!! For the last time! I said no. You may not care about you grades and think all of this is a game, but not me. So. Leave. Me. Alone.” He quickly turned around, eyes glued to the notes before him. Lance quickly shut his mouth as water started to form on the corner of his eyes, mouth pressed in a thin line. He turned on his heels and walked out their dorm. Present Hunk looked to the ground, guilt plastered all over his face. “I-I didn’t know I was that harsh and mean to him..I honestly thought he was just trying to annoy me..” The vision shifted and they were on the roof of the Garrison, the night sky filled with bright stars. Lance was sitting in the roof, legs dangling off the side of the building. “Yeah, I know he didn’t mean it. It’s just the stress talking.” Lance said into his phone. “I know how he gets when he’s nervous.” Pidge looked to Hunk. “Who is he talking to?” Hunk shrugged his shoulders, and turned his attention back to Lance. “Haha, really? His dad’s the same way? Now that’s proof the he won’t die alone! You got married to his dad!” Hunk’s eyes widened. “He’s talking to…my mom?” “Well, I guess so.” Keith murmured. “Anyway, since you’re pretty much an expert with this, is there anything I can do to help him? He’s really pushing himself to the edge, and I’m really worried about him. I know he can do it; it’s just all in his head.” As Lance listened to her response, he broke into a wide grin. “Oh yeah. I can totally do that. Just hope I don’t set anything in fire in the process. Thanks for all your help!” Lance hung up the phone and stood, eyes filled with determination. “Alright. Let’s do this.”
The team were back in the dorm. Past Hunk’s hair was more disheveled, more papers scattered everywhere. Dark bags lurked underneath his eyes. Lance bursted through the door, flour all over his clothes and even in his hair. “I’m baaaaaacccckk!!” Hunk released a long sigh. “Lance, can you please just-” Hunk blinked. “Is that..pineapple upside down cake?” Lance beamed. “You bet the Gucci bags under your eyes they are! Wanna slice?” Hunk eyes shined and he quickly got up from his desk. “Do you even have to ask?? Lance!! You’re the best!!” Lance responded with a blinding grin. The team was suddenly back in the hanger. Yellow let out a soft hum as they went back to where they lay before. Hunk glances down at Lance who was still sleeping soundly. “He baked me my favorite cake. He distracted me from all that stress, and I didn’t even realize it.” Shiro grinned. “Did you pass that test?” Hunk softly chuckled. “Yeah, just as Lance said: I nailed it. He was completely right.” Hunk then frowned. “He tried to help me. And I..I was mean to him. And he forgave me.” He snapped his fingers. “Just like that.” Keith smiled softly at his sleeping form. “Yeah, he’s kinda like that.” Pidge stepped forward. “Alright. I have a feeling that I’m next.” As if on cue, the Green Lion made their way in front of the team.
