Lifelong Sweethearts Klance
I need a fic with like thirteen year old Klance and they have been childhood friends since pre-k and are in this weird stage where they both like each other but it’s all new and confusing and one day Lance just asks Keith out in some roundabout, awkward way and they have no idea what they are doing but it works. Like they barely even know what dating entails and it doesn’t really consist of anything but blushing (Lance’s sisters always trick him into thinking he should do embarrassing things in front of Keith).
*Keith and Lance out eating probably at dave and busters or something*
*Lance order a milkshake with two straws*
“Keith, isn’t this super romantic?”
“Lance, i’m lactose intolerant.”
*Lance has known this since forever* “Oh. I see your point.”
Seriously all the childhood friends to lovers stories you read are usually really thoughtful and beautiful and all, but they usually break your heart for 90% of it (like literally idk why this trope gets to me so much) and then finally you get a reprieve. It’s like angst central because they can’t ruin what they have yada yada.
I’m just talking some literal life long sweethearts that take a brave step and it works out despite all odds saying it shouldn’t because Keith and Lance have always had an odd friendship. They just get to grow up together and one day that time 5 year old Keith proposed Lance on the playground comes to actual fruition some twenty years later.
